Strictly my opinion, but I think the success of the new Navigator is behind this. Years of Ford phoning in their large SUV efforts let GM keep on keepin on; but now that Navigator is stealing customers from other brands (esp. Escalade) they’ve got to keep up.

Whitworth, unfortunately. why do you think they’ve been on the shelf for so long?
he was full of shit. In-n-out doesn’t “own their own farms.”
I would, but considering I’ve been a recipient of the banhammer it’d be pretty hypocritical.
I’d compare it to In-n-out. better than most of the other fast-food options, but not the second coming of Christ like the hype would lead you to believe.
