When Companies Pour Money Into SUVs Because The Good Times Will Never Stop

It’s a good thing vehicle development is not on a years-long timescale and changing whole product strategies overnight is very easy to do.


If you haven’t grasped this already, that’s a look at the stock market. We are, doubtless, headed for a cliff if not hurtling at terminal velocity down the cliff face already. (Remember, most recessions are only officially declared as such long after they’ve begun.)


So again, it’s a good thing that the auto industry is killing cars and doubling down on higher and higher-cost trucks and SUVs, buoyed by cheap gas and cheaper credit.
