Last good looking Lincoln was the Town Car and the Mark VIII
There are aftermarket companies that will always offer CD decks for vehicles. And I would agree. Sound quality of MP3 vs. CD is drastically different.
Which is precisely why you still see so many Pontiac Grand Am's out on the road still. Solid 3800 motor. Wait, isn't that a pushrod?
Pushrod engines just seem to last a lot longer for some reason.....
So GM is bending backwards for the environmentalist segment, which most likely doesn't make up for more than 8% of the total US LV demand. At conferences the past few years talking about all the...
Concept vehicle and compliance vehicle to get EV credits. Demand is low, it'll never be a high volume vehicle. Get rid of the 2025 CAFE implications, and designers don't ever put this down on a...
What's funny is all the talk about new technology needed for current vehicles to achieve great fuel economy. My 99 Civic with a 1.6L 4-banger has achieved no less than 30mpg per tank since it was...
Again, the EPA ratings are a ruse because they use 100% gasoline, not pump gas. 100% gasoline gets much higher fuel economy than pump gas which has 10-15% ethanol in it.
Granted the EPA is using 100% gasoline, not pump gas. But that shouldn't have accounted for such a massive drop like that. 700# lighter and the powertrain was a bit of a let down. Looks like the...
The front end looks like the defunct Freestyle CUV
Maybe Jeremy Clarkston will like the new Z06 more than he did the ZR1?
Not too shabby for an old pushrod, huh?
Though I have no doubt that on 100% gasoline, it can hit 29mpg on the highway with an 8-speed.
I didn't think they still indicated voume by number. Just columns of vertical dashes and eventually it will state "max volume"
I have to agree. There is a lack of focus on fathers to teach their children (boys or girls) how to fix things. Instead a culture has been brought up that has no mechanical knowledge whatsoever. I...
Not really surprising. Even going back to the Focus SVT Hatchback from 02' to 04, hot hatches have always sold very well and exceeded OEM take rates.
You are correct. It's all in how you drive. Top Gear BBC proved that in certain circumstances a BMW M3 can achieve greater mpg than a Toyota Prius around the same road track at the same speed....
This is true, but output to the axles in AWD is still not the same as 4WD. Isn't it closer to a 65/35 or 70/30 split for front to rear?
Glad I'm not the only person that doesn't care for the split wing grill. Much prefer the grill of the final generation of the Mark VIII. Though the track driver in me wonders how bad the torque...
We are upon the start of generations to come who will never know the fun and joy that accompanies operating a vehicle with a manual stransmission. I weep for their loss.
Thanks Tom. You had us worried for a second that Jeep had lost their mind by not offering a manual to their enthuisiasts.
It's a Jeep. It's the brand. The take rate on their brand as a whole is larger than most other brands when offering both.
Used to be the manual was the standard and if you wanted joyless...
Two 4-cylinder engine offerings and there's not even a hint of a standard transmission in a Jeep. #fail
Great job offering a manual gearbox, though it would have been nice mated to the V-6 as well as the 4-banger. What's the diesel option going to run?
Not just you. Marketing guys that deal with stats and numbers all day think of those things as well.
I would say the replacement cost of an 8+ speed transmission will probably surpass the...
I fully understand. But for a large segment of truck customers, we want a truck that we can flog and it won't stop performing. We're not looking to buy a home.
So we need an increase of another 10mpg+ in 18 months? That's a massive stretch.
Great as the truck might be, for years they've been pricing out customers on the Super-duty segment.
Every car OEM will eventually be hunted down for emissions until each vehicle has a 'Mr. Fusion', similar to one a certain Delorean had....
Sure, put a gun to someone's head and you'll be amazed at what they're willing to do to get the barrel pointed away from them.
Sadly, those of us who have driven manual full-size trucks are a relic today. I think the take rate for that throwback would be around 5%. I would do it as well.
I learned to operate a...
