Actually i believe that GM and Ford are dead..at least the Ford and GM we have known till now. They must be largely re-created wrt how they do the job, what designs they create and how they react to the market as well as government regulations.

Yes Ford builds Explorers because people buy them, BUT the people didn't create the design that is a gas guzzling pig.

The US auto industry is capable of producing efficient designs in general and providing specialized packages for towing, or construction duty or whatever else.

And workforce costs are an issue. Productivity in all its measures must be focused on including excessive bonuses to the bosses and payments to workers who don't work a full day.
