How likely are you to consider purchasing or leasing a vehicle completely online using the Ford website?

The Ford website prompted me to take a survey. I typically wouldn't waste my time, but considering everything going on, I did.

Here are a few of the questions I thought would be of interest.

You didn't select 1:1 negotiation with salesperson?? I am SHOCKED; that is the best part of this whole process and I am sure the entire B6G membership will agree.

Except that Ford signed a 6 year deal with Google for cloud services and on board OS. Bye bye Sync hello Android Automotive starting in 2023.

won't happen any time soon. but at least someone is finally thinking about it!
The Tesla and carmax and carvanna car buying model is shaking up the industry. I like this

Dealership model is a dinosaur
Wait til apple releases their car. They're industry leaders and have a lot of capital. Things will change real fast. Ford is being proactive here

About damn time...only day you'll see me on a dealer's lot is Sunday when they are closed...probably a prime reason I keep vehicles so long - don't want the dealership's BS fouling up my day.

One wonders when the balance of being able to see something, test it out or try it on will make a comeback.

Ditching the dealer and their cost: yes. Being able to see and test drive a vehicle is the remaining problem.

I do exactly this! If I just want to go check out colors, I also go on Sunday when closed. Don't want a salesman sneaking up on me trying to get me into a new Ford Ranger.

The dealership model exist because people don't want to pay msrp, just look here, how many are in search for below msrp pricing

Msrp exists because of the dealership model

When I go to buy a phone, it's one price and one price only. People want things simple
"Negotiating" should only be used for used vehicles where there's more room to assess value due to that car's accident history, mileage, etc

If it was a firm price set by Ford and not just a number designed to be whittled down, I would be fine with it. Saturn did this 30 years ago.

(Sarcasm on) YES. I want to buy a car with an oversized coin from a candy-machine-like-10-story building. Sight unseen, at 3:45 a.m. (Sarcasm off) Ugh.
I don't know how the process works for test driving them. But my fiance just bought a used 2019 BMW x3 from that big car vending machine. She had like 60 days to turn it in if there were any issues. The car is immaculate. Sexy black leather like the first edition gets. She had the EASIEST car buying experience I've ever seen
