With the vision of what is to come from Ford in the Fseries market being set, (See http://autos.yahoo.com/blogs/motoramic/ford-atlas-concept-sn...) I think we might be seeing the start of a trend -

GM - "Sales of GM’s full-size pickups rose 32% to 50,230 units"

F - "America’s best-selling pickup, the Ford F-Series, begins 2013 with a 22 percent increase versus last January. With 46,841 pickups sold, F-Series marks its 18th consecutive month of monthly sales increases."

Don't get me wrong - this is a beautiful result for January. However, my gut tells me that Ford loyals that were thinking of getting a newer model in the next two years will defer to what I think is the most beautiful truck I have ever seen.

Just something to consider as I'm a long-term investor in Ford, and plan to be at-least until the next union renegotiation. If we see a significant dip in sales sometime this year, I think it is safe we can start blaming it on the beautiful Atlas.
