Even before the first of its GT supercars hits dealer showrooms, Ford has announced a special edition for the inaugural model year. The livery on the new model honors the 1966 GT40 Mark II driven to victory by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon at Le Mans, the first race car to cross the line in the 1-2-3 Ford GT sweep at Le Mans in 1966.
For Honda, the second time around could prove to be perfect timing. For years, both Toyota and Nissan have found the full-size pickup truck segment to be a tough nut to crack. With renewed interest in midsize trucks largely due to the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon twins from GM, this could be the opportune time for Honda to get back into the game.
a hatchback version of the second-generation model will arrive in dealer showrooms as a 2017 model. So, why the change of heart (or, more correctly, marketing perspective)? In a word, it's called "sales."
