Once the new platform pays for itself, will prices decrease?

I found this in an article from January 2015.

I didn't want to move out of our price class, but Tadge explained that while the transmission would cost more, the list price would increase by no more than $5000. Imagine an American-built car with the proportions of a Lamborghini at that price point …that's pretty appealing.

That would be amazing.

Random speculation for the next 4 years or so. Some of it is pretty decent info.

So Ford is bringing back the Ranger and Bronco. This could get interesting.

Yeah, saw that. Not sure why another crossover is needed. Build the blazer on the colorado platform, they already do it oversees...make SS and ZR2 versions and make us happy.

The goal is sales & profit ... not making enthusiasts happy. The vast majority of people want the size & space of an SUV but don't care for truck-like ride, handling, or fuel economy. Hence, crossovers. Sure, an SUV is going to be a bit better than a similar crossover while off-road or towing. But since most people (including SUV owners) never do those things, that advantage is largely irrelevant. About the biggest argument for making a midsize SUV is to offer something to people who simply don't like the concept of a crossover and don't want something as big as a Tahoe. I'm not sure thats a very big group of people.
