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.

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - 15:58

So we need an increase of another 10mpg+ in 18 months? That's a massive stretch.

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - 08:48

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...

I know owners of F-150's with the EcoBoost V-6 and they say it gets VERY thirsty when it's in boost.

Would love to see the real world mpg's of this 2.7L when you guys are able to test it and compare it to the 3.5L and the 5.0L. If you baby it, I bet it just might eclipse the mark set by the light...

The Top Gear BBC guys did that on their muscle car road trip in Reno with a Challenger SRT8 and a Corvette ZR1. Hillarious to see all the alarms go off. That's on the bucket list to do.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 11:03

It's the kind of car that you'd take to a nice downtown area and give is some gas with the clutch in and set off a few car alarms with.

Part of me wishes they went the other way with the...

All in all, how much fun was it to test drive this thing? Flooring it is never a bad idea. Just make sure you're on a straight 1/4 mile each time. And yes, from a Gen-Y, that much power is...

Same could be said on how people pronouce Porsche. You either hear half of people say 'porsch" or 'porscha".

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 15:43

Pe-CAN or Pe-CON, right?

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 09:09

That's impressive power from both powertrains, but running between 14-17psi for boost? That's what's hampering the fuel efficiency. Not going to lie, I'd be flogging those motors all the time for...

Not too shabby for a stone-age "pushrod" engine, huh? There's more get out of them than people think!

Thursday, July 10, 2014 - 11:11

Pricing, schmicing. A CVT can't compete on a "fun to drive" level as a manual can. Call it stubborness if you want, but a clutch and standard transmission is far less complex, fewer components and...

Thursday, July 10, 2014 - 08:25

I got your back on this. No manual offering in a Subaru? That's a disgrace.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 09:56

Take a way the tax-subsidies to those that purchase them. That will drive their sales even lower. It's not an equal playing field.

Monday, June 30, 2014 - 15:20

The gun is there, if not in profit, for sure in principle. If you want to play in our market, you have to produce and sell a specific type of vehicle at a loss. This vehicle's sales will only make...

Preach on, my brother!

Friday, June 27, 2014 - 13:12

If those aren't enough, I suppose you could always go with the car that has 2 more cylinders to start off.

Friday, June 27, 2014 - 07:51

I always thought that there were already solutions to mitagate turbo lag: ie, lighter weight flywheel and gearing selection?

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 16:14

You aren't going to try and expense that ticket, are you? Though if you do and it works, that would be completely awesome!

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 14:31

Can't go wrong with a turbo, right Tom?

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 14:15

That may be true for bikes, but motorcycles have a huge advantage over electric vehicles: weight. You motorcycle probably weights 4 times less than this Fiat, if not more, so you are able to push...

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 08:38

Even though this is a compliance vehicle, would you say it was as much fun or less fun to drive compared to the Abarth?

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 13:49

Sigh, fine the manufacturers punitively for making a product that people enjoy and deisre to purchase...

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 11:32

I thought for the most part OEMs like Porsche gave the CAFE requirements the cold shoulder and just paid the penalites because the margins per vehicle on say, 911's are so much that it didn't...

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 08:18

In all fairness, they should have omitted all the hybirds they placed on that list as well. Totally different category in my opinion. They could have took the handful of hybrids out and replaced...
