Platform Sharing and MKs Stats Nov. '07 - Jan. '08

This article features a pretty good table that shows how "platform sharing" is effecting the big 3 manufacturers.

It is funny how Toyota can get away with sharing with Lexus(as the article details), but the American Automakers (Chevy, Ford, Chrysler) can't swing it.

The article compares how long it takes to sell the vehicles.

Other good info like the average sell price, average age of buyer, and % of female buyers is also included.

The difference is Toyota/Lexus market like vehicles against two different economical ranges so as to not compete directly with each other. Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler/Mitsubishi all market the same product against each other... thus stealing each others customers. I mean I am no degree holding economist but how can they not see how that would work negatively for them.
