It wasn't all that long ago that Ford was temporarily idling plants that were building SUVs and shifting some over to smaller cars because of low demand for the gas guzzlers. Those days are apparently over, because Ford Americas president Mark Fields told Automotive News [sub. req.] that FoMoCo will increase production of full-sized SUVs. Details on timing and numbers were not released, but we do know that the Ford Expedition had only a 31-day supply in December as sales jumped 45 percent and the Lincoln Navigator was down to a 24-day supply with sales up 60 percent. Most automakers like to sit on a 60-day supply. Is the price of gas so steady (or considered low now) that SUVs are back in buyers' eyes? Guess so.
