Do you think this will work? or will it flop?

Nissan North America, Inc. announced that the midsize pickup truck it will produce for Suzuki Motor Corp. will be based on the Frontier midsize pickup and built at Nissan's manufacturing facility in Smyrna, Tenn.

Production of the pickup truck will begin in 2008. The vehicle will be solely marketed by Suzuki in North America. Preparations currently are under way to ready the Smyrna facility.

In 2006, Nissan and Suzuki Motor Corp. announced an agreement to expand the scope of their business collaboration. The pickup is part of that agreement, which also included the supply by Nissan to Suzuki of the Serena minivan in Japan.

It may work, but if it fails it will probably not be due to the the product but to the diminishing number of Suzuki dealerships. Suzuki would probably be better partnered with Chrysler than GM. Chrysler would probably be better partnered with Suzuki than Chery.

I'm confused, or completely lame (probably both)... where did the "Ford" tag come into this thread?  
Sometimes you don't have to be the best racer there is, just the best of who you're racing against.
