I would not use the term "merger" that is going to freak people out. There wouldn't be a new company called GMFord. Instead they are looking at just combining their buying power for raw materials and components.

GM and Ford are not looking to merge, buyout or any such thing.

All car companies work together in one capacity or another, just look at the GM/Ford 6 speed transmission project.
