Default BREAKING: Trump invokes emergency authority; Big 3 automakers closing

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) President Donald Trump on Wednesday moved to invoke a federal law that allows the government to marshal the private sector to deal with the coronavirus epidemic, as the economic damage mounted with word that Detroit's Big Three automakers agreed to shut down all their factories to protect workers.

I feel like GM and Ford will seriously regret having offerings at the bottom of their lineup very soon.



HK, Honda, Toyota, and other have a lot of choice.


For cars under 25K, theyve got the:

- Spark (too small for families)

- Trailblazer (Unknown quantity)

- Discounted Encore, Equinox, Terrain

- Basic trim Malibu


That's it.

Ford is even worse, they have the Fiesta and Ecosport, and the very base level Escape slips in barely. The Fusion is going out, and the Focus is already dead.


Dodge has the truly ancient Journey, all of the Fiat cars are dead, Chrysler only makes the Minivan. The Compass and Renegade are decent options in that price point, but once again: only two nameplates.




HK has so many:

Venue
Kona
Tuscon
Santa Fe (slightly over, but only by $85)
Accent
Elantra
Sonata (and Sonata Hybrid!)
Ioniq
Veloster
Elantra GT

Forte
Soul
Seltos
Sportage
Niro
Rio
Optima

Even Honda has a lot of options:

Civic
Fit
Insight
Accord
HR-V
CR-V (Slightly over, but only by $50)


Lots of different options for many buyers.
