Over and over, we've asked: What is Ford (NYSE: F ) thinking with Lincoln?
Ford says it's committed to making Lincoln a major luxury player. But building and sustaining a luxury-car brand takes a massive effort. Rival General Motors (NYSE: GM ) is spending a fortune in an all-out push to make Cadillac a true rival to the German luxury leaders. We haven't seen anything like that level of commitment from Ford.
But this week, Lincoln launched a new ad campaign that compares the MKZ Hybrid with Toyota's (NYSE: TM ) Lexus hybrids. As Fool contributor John Rosevear explains, the new ads are a bold move by Ford -- one that could signal a bigger commitment to the renaissance of the Lincoln brand.
