Id say they have a chance, but having shown my hand, lets see where the cards fall
Ford also has dealership lots filled with ICE cars that will compete with it for lot space and sales tactics. Dealers certainly aren't going to be filling their lots with a Mustang inspired electric SUV that they may or may not be able to sell, they'll fill them with F150s and Escapes like they currently do.

I don't see this being any more of a "success" than what the Bolt was.
