Ford goes big and bold, throws environmental concerns out the window

As you can see from this car porn, Ford executives -- William, Mark, James F, Joseph, Robert, James H -- are very excited about the prospects for the 2020 Lincoln Aviator, a luxury SUV.

As Ford phases out most cars, Chicago plant will produce a new SUV.  (Chicago Tribune, 4/26/2018)
Say goodbye to Taurus, Fiesta, and Focus.  The Torrence Avenue plant, Ford's oldest in continuous operation, will end production of the Taurus and Police Interceptor sedans by March. At the same time, it will begin building a new vehicle — the 2020 Lincoln Aviator SUV — which, along with an all-new Ford Explorer and police version of the SUV, should keep the plant in full swing, Ford executives said Thursday.

In its original incarnation (2003-2005), the Lincoln Aviator certainly qualfied as a gas guzzler.

According to Merriam Webster, the first known use of 'gas guzzler' occurred in 1973.
