WTF???

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/01/14/...detroit-naias/

https://jalopnik.com/a-ford-mach-1-b...min-1822073131

From the Jalopnik article above:
"Update Jan 14 5:25 p.m. est: Ford PR rep Mike Levine just tweeted that the Mach 1 will be a 'high performance battery electric SUV.'

Update Jan 14 6:00 p.m. est: Mike Levine clarified his tweet in a message to Jalopnik, saying Ford is 'researching the name Mach 1 to see how customers respond,' for a high performance battery electric SUV."

I saw somewhere there is a twitter campaign to stop this. Ford needs to be more creative and not steal names that are holy to the Mustang line. Be loud and make Ford know we are not happy about this abomination! It is a crime!

** Attention Ford: ** Name your F-N SUV something else!

That would be a shame and a huge mistake on Ford's part!

So, twitter campaign to stop this wrong. "Direct all complaints to @mrlevine, he’ll be listening." as quoted from an article on another forum site.
