Ford Wants to Rebuild Lincoln Lineup


Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally has been successful in tackling Ford's debt and reducing it by $10.8 billion this year. The automaker has also reported six consecutive quarters of profits despite the current economic situation. All this has happened since taking over as CEO in 2006.

He stated that Ford has chosen now to revitalize Lincoln as a luxury maker, and that the rebuilding it will be in three parts. The luxury part Ford has down, but the automaker needs to focus more on a distribution system where Lincoln stores are situated in the right places, where the luxury-minded customers are. Mulally went on to state that there will be a complete overhaul of the Lincoln vehicle platform with completely differentiated models. When pressed for more details, Mulally resisted by only stating that there won't be a "warmed-over, rebadged Ford Escape."
