may sales analysis mid large crossovers

TTAC’s May sales analysis rolls on with this peek at the mid- and full-size crossover segment, which still looks to be waiting for a definitive competitor. But with other segments growing faster than this one, don’t expect a huge investment here anytime soon.

    OK, guys. As much as I like the Flex, I think it is time to admit that it is a failure. When the Dodge Journey is nipping at your heels, time to go back to work.

      Two thoughts on the Flex - One it is most similar to the old suburbans or the 70's and 80's large, functional vehicle that didn't sell in large numbers but were quite profitable. Two I think that after the explorer begins to take off, the Flex will become what it always should have been a lincoln (and the horrible MKT will disappear). Remember 1 factory produces 4 premium/luxury vehicles all sharing a similar platform and components and the majority of all development/tooling costs are gone.

    Where is the CX7, or are to the numbers so small it doesn't show?

    Edmunds just finished their long-term test of the Edge. Over 28,000 miles they averaged 14mpg. OPEC does not need to worry about people switching from SUVs to crossovers after all.
