^ I disagree, I haven't mulled it over too much but I believe it would just be money in the bank for Ford.
1) They already have a luxury division
2) Volvo is losing money.. however slowly that may be
3) Ford's actually supplying VOLVO with parts/platforms.. so it looks like Volvo needs Ford more than vice versa.
Of course, I'm no financial genius and I'm definitely not looking at this in the long term from a CEO's standpoint.
But get your money while you can.. make up for any future losses by upgrading your product line and getting sales up..
