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.

Monday, August 11, 2014 - 13:44

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?

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 - 16:41

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.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 16:21

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...

Monday, July 21, 2014 - 14:26

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...

Monday, July 14, 2014 - 08:41

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!
