It's amazing how far Ford Motor Company has come. When others were seeking¬†billions of dollars in Government¬†bailout funds;¬†Ford said¬†"No thanks".¬†¬†When others concentrated more on big-wig staffing changes and who gets what bonuses; Ford concentrated on their model line-up.¬† And when others fell short of goals and sales targets; Ford blew right by them! "Want more proof that Ford is really starting to pick up some serious momentum? The Wall Street Journal is reporting that The Blue Oval will follow up its $2.1 billion first quarter profits with another $2.6 billion in black ink for the second quarter. That's a far cry from the $424 million the automaker lost in the second quarter of last year and another big step towards sustained financial success. Ford is making money in part because of restructured costs, but also because of increased awareness in its well-reviewed new products. Ford is looking better on many fronts, including models with more competitive pricing, higher residual values, improved quality and sales increases that are outpacing most of its rivals. Ford now has a competitive small and midsize car lineup for the first time in decades, but the big money is still coming from larger vehicles. F-150 sales, for example, are up 25 percent for the quarter, while Super Duty sales are reportedly up 55 percent. In terms of average transaction prices, another success has been the revamped Taurus, which is fetching a whopping $6,300 more than the outgoing model and $850 more than the average Toyota Avalon.

The new 2011 Honda CR-Z is set to go on sale (in the U.S.) on August 24, 2010 starting at $19,200 plus D&D (freight) of $750 US for a total of $19,950. In Canada the MSRP prices will start at $23,490 + $1,395 for a total of $24,885. Mind you the Canadian "base" car is equivalent to the upgraded "EX" model in the US which will be priced at $20,760 + $750 = $21,510. Considering the exchange rate is currently around 5% and Canada's 6.1% duty on imported cars, the difference of 15.6% ($24,885/$21,510=15.6%) isn't too bad. The prices are not live in our system yet, but will be soon. Don't expect a deal any time soon. The difference between the retail and¬†wholesale dealer invoice price is just a touch over $1,000, plus the Ontario govenment just cut out the $2,000 PST rebate so its not as cheap as it could have been in June if it had been available.¬† Official launch date is August 10, 2010.
