Cheddar Morning Business Update 11/29: Lincoln to use real words to name vehicles

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

All eyes are on DC with investors looking for more progress on tax reform.

The Dow posted its biggest gain since early September amid rising optimism that a tax cut bill is moving closer to reality.

Meanwhile, FedEx is buying 50 flying delivery trucks from Cessna. Cessna showed off an all-new design for a small freighter and passenger aircraft, called the SkyCourier.

FedEx has been modernizing its fleet of small planes to stay ahead of competitors like Amazon.

Lastly, Lincoln is going back to real words to name its vehicles. The redesigned MKX will now be called the Lincoln Nautilus, so customers can make an emotional connection to the vehicle.
It is also easier for international customers to pronounce.
