Ford In Ford

As a freshman in college, I knew that I would have to buy a car to get from school to music gigs. For the majority of grade school, kids in my class teased me for my last name: Ford. They would ask if I was related to Henry Ford or if my parents owned a Ford. Neither was true so then I knew that I wanted to drive a Ford. I can proudly say that my car is decorated with my name, but not only that, the car drives well and is extremely comfortable. I first test drove a Chevy Cruze and it was uncomfortable and unmanageable. Being a small woman, I needed a car that fit perfectly. As soon as I sat down, I knew it was my car. Thank you for keeping the tradition alive for wonderful automobiles for real people.

I think Ford should streamline their lineup by reducing the amount of available trims. There are way too many trims available, most of which don't vary as much as I'd like. Ford should have 4 available trims that are universal throughout all models. Each one offering something distanctly different. I'd like to see the following trims... EL (Entry Level), cheapest trim available, no bells or whistles, low level technology. LE (Luxury Edition), Comfortable seating, finer/more quality interior, mid level technology package. GT (Grand Touring) Performance model, sporty design inside and out, either an ecoboost or 5.0 V8, mid level technology package. KR (King of the Road) Top of the line model, best available technology, all engines available, sports luxury design inside and out. I feel like the gaps between trims should be bigger and more distinctive. I think the F-150 should be the only exception to the 4 universal trims rule. However, it should definitely still be cut down. It does not need 10 different trims! That's ridiculous.
