Will Ford Bring Back Its Big SUVs?

Ford's (NYSE: F  ) full-sized SUVs, the Expedition and its Lincoln Navigator twin, were stars during the big SUV's heyday -- but that was a long time ago. With the truck they're based on set to be replaced soon, will Ford bring its big beasts back for another round?

In this video, Fool.com contributor John Rosevear looks at how the Expedition's sales have declined in recent years -- and at Ford's plans for the future of its big SUVs.

If you're concerned that Ford's turnaround has run its course, relax -- there's good reason to think that the Blue Oval still has big growth opportunities ahead. We've outlined those opportunities in detail, in the Motley Fool's premium Ford research service. If you're looking for some freshly updated guidance to Ford's prospects in coming years, you've come to the right place -- click here to get started now.

    I'm not highly concerned with the big SUV, but I'd really like to see a truely new Ranger PU.....I think Ford has made a huge error by not revamping it. I've heard there's a Ranger in Europe that's supposed to be great, but never to be imported here...again think big mistake...btw I still have my '86 Ranger with over 275k miles...

    Ford does indeed have a new Ranger that is supposedly quite good. I know it's being built in Thailand, but it won't come here.

    There's a deeper reason why, but I don't know the whole story... it may have to do with the union and whatever Ford agreed to when they closed the Twin Cities Assembly Plant. I'm not sure, but I'll inquire.

    Thanks for watching.
