Ford's New CEO Drives A Lexus

What Does New CEO Mulally Drive?
Posted By Administrator On 13th September 2006 @ 12:51 In Ford, Personnel | 2 Comments
New Ford Boss Alan Mulally is happy to let it be known that he drives a Lexus LS 430, because after looking at all the options, he concluded “it’s the finest car in the world.” Tom Walsh of the Detroit Free Press says that Mulally:
“…knows Lexus cars are better than anything currently in Ford’s lineup, and he doesn’t care if Ford employees or the media hear him say it out loud.”
We have to say that it’s pretty ballsy to make statements like that at the most American of automakers and in a city with a lot of pride in what they build.

Sad but True. then again, ford isnt in the luxury game like lexus is. isnt the IS430 have like 300hp and AWD? maybe since he likes it so much, he will make some competition for the luxury cars and sell them as mercury and spice up that lineup.

Just means he will have to make something that can replace that Lexus so he can drive a Ford again

Re: Ford's New CEO Drives A Lexus

If I was him I would trade that Lexus in, and get a Benz, or Bentley, or BMW, or Porsche. Even though Lexus is a extremely good car, I would rather go to Europe for my luxury cars if I was rich like him. You know he's not going to ever come close to wearing a car he buys out before he sales it.
