Looking at my sons car racing games it seems that Ford are obviously receptive to licensing out their brand to Game developers.
The trouble is for Giants is that Ford, themselves, no longer build tractors. Would be an expensive business obtaining a license just for a couple of classic tractors. I know that the pick ups would be a useful addition but would even those still justify the cost.
i can imagine that Fords license fees would be pretty hefty.
Never say never though.

From what I can gather by speaking to my dad and the local New Holland dealer who is a real old timer, Ford tractors were very popular, Ford bought New Holland as a company in '86, then sold it to Fiat in '91, which then meant that fiat had a full line up including tractors, combines, foragers and baling gear, for some unkown reason Fiat stopped making there own tractors and built New Hollands under license or something which is why you see early New Hollands in that Fiat brown colour, or even a branded FiatNewHolland, which would explain seeing some strange half breed and mongrel tractors growing up on the farm, I remember fords, then new hollands (brown ones because of the recent fiat merger at the time) then a NH 8340 which felt like we were going back to fords again due to it being the same machine, even had a Ford genesis 6-cyl turbo, not an FPT unit. then in the mid 90's it changed to New Holland completely which meant we had 2 TM190'S, 8340 SLE. and my dads trusty TW35. my dad completely lost faith in 2004 due to a horrendous reliability issue with the NH tracors we had so we switched to fendt, now we have a 824 favorit, 720 vario, 516 and 828 vario.

after that very long winded history lesson which I apologise for if it was boring, basically what I was trying to say was that since New Holland still owns the patents and designs and even copyrights for Ford machines I think. Giants would subsequently have to approach NH for a potential ford license, since Giants and New Holland seem to have a good relationship showing to near perfect models of NH gear in the past two games, mind my thinking is that NH would want to continue having there latest machines firmly in the spotlight to promote the company so its probably doubtful it would happen,

I'm hoping for the MY TS115 by ARM, that's would be a cracking little yard tractor for towing my headers around and animal work.
