Large Turn Out for the Keep GM
Jobs in Canada Rally Jan 11, 2019

On Friday, January 11, GM was hosting an investor event to pitch its future corporate direction.

This direction includes their plan to shut down GM Oshawa, affecting thousands of Unifor members and workers in Canada. GM’s big plan to line the pockets of investors also includes ramping up production in Mexico, exploiting low-paid workers there.

This is the wrong direction for the company. Unifor members need their communities behind them, to say that the Oshawa Assembly Plant must stay open.

Thousands showed up to tell GM that we are all united beside Canadian autoworkers.

If GM wants to sell in Canada, it needs to build here.

Announcements

Bill Ford Statement on the Passing of John Dingell Dingell
Former Congressman John D. Dingell, who was supportive of Ford Motor Company and the automotive industry, passed away Feb. 7. The following statement is attributable to Bill Ford, Executive Chairman.

“For my 20 years as chairman of Ford Motor Company, I considered John Dingell a friend and advisor. John was a larger-than-life legend whose presence will be deeply missed at Ford. Even on the most divisive issues at the most difficult of times, he was unwavering in his efforts to find common ground. He constantly reminded us as a company and as an industry that we either work together or we fail separately. John devoted his life to serving the people of Michigan, and his legacy continues today with his wife Debbie. His passing is a reminder that we need more leaders who are willing to find compromise and bring people together for the greater good.”

PruittF-Series a Key Part of Life On and Off the Farm for Super Duty Chief Program Engineer
Long before he was heading up the 2020 F-Series Super Duty team, Michael Pruitt was putting truck capabilities to the test on the farm. Growing up in Eugene, Missouri in the 1970s, Pruitt – now chief program engineer for the new Ford F-Series Super Duty – and his two brothers worked on their father's farm. “F-Series has always been a big part of my life, both on and off the farm,” said Pruitt. “It was the leader then and it still is today.”

Global Notes

SleepHow Ford Is Putting Selfish Sleepers in Their Place
At the end of a hectic day, cozying up to the one you love should be a welcome relief. But for those who share their beds with a “space invader,” precious hours can be lost simply trying to reclaim a fair share of the mattress. Ford's new “lane-keeping bed” concept applies car technology know-how to ensure that even the most selfish bedmates stay firmly in their lane throughout the night.

Regional PerformanceStrong Regional Performance Shows Luxury Lincoln Is a Brand on the Up
Lincoln continued its ascent up the market share ladder in 2018, with regional sales of its luxury vehicles climbing across the Gulf Cooperation Council – a political and economic alliance of six Middle Eastern nations. Buoyed by exceptional demand for the all-new Navigator – which saw sales triple over the previous year – the number of Lincoln vehicles sold last year throughout this council grew 6 percent, as discerning luxury customers rediscovered the quality and class of the full Lincoln lineup.

BrazilBrazil Launches 2020 EcoSport with New Run-Flat Tire Technology
Ford EcoSport established the compact SUV segment in Brazil in 2003, then went on to become a global model. Now, with the launch of the new 2020 Ford EcoSport Titanium, the vehicle becomes the first SUV in the country to use run-flat tire technology. This Michelin technology allows the new EcoSport to continue running up to almost 50 miles at approximately 50 mph, even with a punctured tire, affording drivers greater security. Using the repair kit that comes with the vehicle, this distance can be extended to nearly 125 miles.

Bonnie and Clyde Loved Ford
(Detroit Free Press) On April 13, 1934, Ford Motor Company received a notorious endorsement. “Dear Sir,” read the handwritten letter addressed to Henry Ford. “While I still have got breath in my lungs I will tell you what a dandy car you make. I have drove Fords exclusively when I could get away with one.” The operative words being “get away” – the letter was signed, “Yours truly Clyde Champion Barrow.”

2020 Ford Explorer Police Vehicle Has Hidden Life-Saving Design
(Detroit Free Press) Michigan State Police First Lt. Mike Shaw has been nearly hit by speeding vehicles four times, twice while outside his car. Police say that officers being maimed or killed while investigating accidents or conducting traffic stops is a rising danger. Sometimes, drivers strike a parked police vehicle, pushing it toward officers working on the roadway. Other times, officers are still inside their cars when they are struck. Ford Motor Company, which supplies 65 percent of U.S. police vehicles, has responded to the growing concern by redesigning the body of its 2020 Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility with 160 pounds of extra steel to create a protective new frame.

Ford Has High Hopes with Resurrected Ranger Pickup Truck
(The Detroit News) Bruce Plumb's 2019 Ford Ranger hadn't even been fully registered with the state of Michigan when he called Jan. 3 to put it on his insurance. The 69-year-old Brownstown resident is the first person in North America to own the reborn Ranger, the midsize truck Ford Motor Company officially revived in January. The automaker is pruning sedans and small cars from its lineup in favor of larger, more profitable trucks and SUVs so it can fund bets on electrification, autonomous vehicles and mobility ventures.
