    I think the whole point of the current F-650/750 was to offer a low cost limited option medium duty with an 'in house' powertrain. I think that Ford has been quite successful with this plan, they may not have the best medium duty truck but they have a good cost advantage over the competition. The 7X engine should be a welcome replacement for the old V-10. What is this 'H' cab?

    The City Express was not much more than a limited market testing exercise, if it would have sold GM would have built their own small van. It's a small price sensitive market in the U.S. that Ford practically owns, and it isn't real profitable anyway. Not sure VW will ever end up owning all of Navistar. My best guess is some sort of merger could be a possibility in the distant future after VW spins their truck unit off, but probably not before that. Not sure Navistar would want to kick GM out of their plants either. Navistar is doing good business assembling GM's cut-away van chassis (and probably wouldn't mind more of GM's van work). The JV medium will provide International a class 4/5 truck to replace the discontinued TerraStar, and GM will likely become an engine (small diesel and gasoline) and cab component supplier to Navistar. In addition, I think there will be more JV's between GM and Navistar going forward. No doubt MAN/Scania will also be very important partners as well, if not more so than GM. You know, with GM's Duramax, MAN, and Scania diesels, International could drop Cummins eventually.
