Use only two platforms for every vehicle in Ford's lineup
C1 Platform: 2013 focus, 2013 escape, 2013 c-max,
P Platform: 2013 trucks
The platform EUCD is loosely based on the C1 platform and used for the 2013 fusion/mondeo. The T platform is based on the P platform and is used for the 2012 ford expedition.
Ford should use these two platforms because they consist of most of their best selling vehicles. The use of just two platforms instead of the current 13, would greatly reduce the cost for making their vehicles and make it easier to produce the vehicles globally. Certain vehicles like the fiesta and mustang that both use their own platform should be kept, but using the least amount of platforms is the most efficient.
