    What does "groove' mean ?

    Hi

    I read an article about a recent increase in profits of the Ford company and there was some setence which I don't understand well.

    Ford got its groove back after racking up billions in losses when the SUV boom went bust.


    I looked it up in the dictionary and found only 2 meanings
    First, a kind of rhythm
    second, a deep line cut into a surface.

    Both of two meanings really do not make sense here.

    I guess 'get groove back' means returning something that used to be something originally ? in the past?

    I don;t know..

    What does groove mean here? and
    How to usually use this expression 'get its groove back' ?


    Thanks

    **Yes, back (in "rhythm") to a profitable condition.
