Well then, you answered your own question. If they choose the vehicle for that purpose, then it will remain available in both the current generation and next generation for that same purpose.

On the other hand, if they have other reasons for choosing the vehicle that don't align with the "cheap FWD" that has befallen other models with the same nameplate, well, they can move on to whichever models from whichever other makes will help them feel good about their purchase.
