A lot of Australians still like cars. Americans do not. The Ford badge speaks for Americans.
Does our future hold an ever increasing number of bloated, oversized, American vehicles and ‘world’ vehicles that get increasingly designed for the American market? Remember the previously svelte Subaru Liberty that ‘gained weight’ for the American ‘highway cruising’ market a decade ago? Was that the start of a trend that is going to accelerate now?
Let’s hope the European and Japanese manufacturers keep building cars.
