Saw a '15 model last night in a town about 25min northwest of Ann Arbor. Looks pretty nice, good lines. I had hoped the fuel economy would have improved much more than it did, especially with the...

Will this be RWD? Hear it will be a 3.0L EcoBoost. It should have a V-8 offering, otherwise, they'll really have to ratchet up the output on that EcoBoost (or add a twin turbo) to compete with the...

Last performance coupe they had was the Mark VIII and that was the P.I. modular 2-valve V-8 wasn't it? I'd enjoy seeing the 'Mark" series back and maybe drop the Taurus SHO powertrain in it to...

If that's the case, I hope it takes the Porsche easily and Jeremy finally has to admit he found an American car he likes!

Hard to tell Tom. When Jeremy had the ZR1 (or Zed-R1 as he called it) it handled the Audi R8 (which is a magnificent vehicle in it's own right) on straightaways. But the R8 destroyed the ZR1 on...

We all know the comparisons will finally stop once Richard Hammond and/or Jeremy Clarkston get behind the wheel of this on Top Gear...

For a global presence I would agree about Volvo. For a domestic presence, they should have kept the Mercury nameplate. It exponentially outsold Lincoln in the U.S. What they also should have kept...

This is why vehicles should not be fully automated as they want them to be. All the cyber-attacks from other countries, you give someone an opening and the door will eventually be forced open.

Pending ground clearance issues, the RS could have handled the snow south central Michigan received on Sunday pretty admirably.

Thank God and thank you Ford for finally yielding to all the enthusiasts who've been dying for this. AWD and 300+ HP. WRX Impreza has competition now. Manual transmission for sure, but not opposed...

"Ford CEO Mark Fields says consumers are not embracing fuel-efficient technologies at the expected rate."

That's because those technologies are mandates from the government, not consumer...

If they don't dumb it down (aka Americanize it), it should be awesome. Hope it lives up to its European nameplate. Hoping it's a 3 door hatch.

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 17:07

Ditto to that for Ford to bring their a Focus enthusiasts a 3 door hatchback, like the ST is in Europe......

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?

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 - 10:09

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...

Thursday, January 8, 2015 - 15:36

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.

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 - 11:21

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

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 15:54

Maybe Jeremy Clarkston will like the new Z06 more than he did the ZR1?

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 08:43

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.

Thursday, September 4, 2014 - 09:50

I didn't think they still indicated voume by number. Just columns of vertical dashes and eventually it will state "max volume"

Friday, August 29, 2014 - 10:24

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.

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 13:46

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....

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 15:26

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?
