Sometimes a brand needs to die. Here’s my pick on five car brands that deserve to take a long dirt nap.
Should Ford Motor dump Mercury and Volvo? Jerry York, the longtime adviser to billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian’s Tracinda, which recently acquired 5.6% of Ford, seems to think so. According to Automotive News, on May 1 he said out loud what a lot of people have been quietly thinking, namely that Ford should sell its two struggling brands, Mercury and Volvo.
I just have this picture of a bunch of old farts riding around. Mercury needs to take a dirt nap asap.
Ford has way to many brands to manage Volvo, sell it off or kill it. It’s better off either way.
I hate the GM brand. Never liked a single one of its cars. Chevrolet is a much stronger brand.
Reminds of Mercury for all the same reasons. Agh, kill it off soon.
Good concept, wrong era. Just die now. Please.
