If Ford’s going to sell its brand of go-fast around the world, it has to think globally. That’s why it combined the Special Vehicle Team, Team RS from its European division, and the global Ford Racing enterprise into a one-stop shop for speed: Ford Performance.
Last year, “The Tonight Show” host and New Yorker Jimmy Fallon announced he wanted to get a new Ford F-150. A full-size truck can’t be easy to own in and drive through such a congested city, but one the size of a Power Wheels should be a cinch, right? Not exactly.
Ford knows the definition of a good problem to have. It’s had to bump up the number of employees at its Oakville Assembly plant near Toronto, Canada that will build the 2015 Edge by 40 percent.
When I was in grad school, I was only able to take a certain amount of business calculus before I nodded off. I just didn’t find the subject interesting. Then again, I wasn’t learning how to build the 2015 Ford F-150.
Fifty dollars. You can either spend it on a week’s worth of overpriced coffee and fast food or use it to pay Ford to prepare your 2015 F-150 to accept a snow plow.
