2014 could be a big year for the automakers. GM makes history, giving the CEO job to a woman.
Mary Barra started as an intern and becomes CEO on January 15th.
You’ll see 23 new models coming out of Ford — including a new F-150 and Mustang.
It means a profit hit for the automaker but, likely some deals for you as Ford tries to unload old models.
