ATW #2208 - Lincoln Rekindles its Luxury Lineup

February 22nd, 2018 at 4:00pm



Kumar Galhotra, GVP Lincoln & CMO Ford; Eric Noble, The CarLab; Jim Henry, Freelance. Topic: Lincoln Motor Company.

Ten years ago analysts were advising Ford to bury its luxury brand Lincoln; the Germans & Japanese had too much of the market they said, plus its U.S. competition, Cadillac, was already in the midst of making a comeback.

However, Ford ignored the naysayers and resurrected the brand with new product, new leadership and even reviving some of its historic nameplates to boot. This week on Autoline, we talk with our special guest Kumar Galhotra the head of Lincoln about where the brand is today and where it will be going as we move into the 2020s.

February 15th, 2018 at 4:00pm



Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand; Ryan Nagode, Chief Designer, Ram; Gary Vasliash, Automotive Design & Production. Topic: Ram.

Despite the fact that it has six different brands, last year the two that made the most money for FCA were Jeep and RAM. And this year both brands are debuting new product. However, today there seems to be nothing more important to the public than a truck, and RAM has a dynamite light-duty version, which it unveiled recently at the North American International Auto Show. This week’s Autoline talks to the two men responsible for the interior design and marketing of the truck. Join us for a deep dive into the 2019 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup.
