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...

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

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!

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

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...

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...

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...

Good point. AWD is really only better in corners. That was Top Gear UK's knock about the Corvette ZR1. The Audi R8 just smoked it in the corners. But when they had a drag race, it was no question...

Friday, June 13, 2014 - 08:34

This would be amazing to drive. But imagine if this had AWD. Then it would just be phenominal.

Doesn't this stem at least at a minimum with the EPA test lab and using non-pump gas in its tests for each vehicle? 100% gasoline gets noticeably better fuel economy than pump gas. I've tried it...

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 16:25

Like the people that filed lawsuits against the OEMs when they received a broken nose because they weren't wearing their seatbelts? And the OEMs basically settled out of court? I remember a lot of...

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 16:06

I would have to agree. It all comes down to your training behind the wheel and knowing what to do. We can put all the technology into the vehicle that we want, but we forget that the input for all...

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 16:35

I thought the piece was just about an unreal crash and the worth/importance of having quality safety equipment-in this case, the Recaro racing seats that held up for the driver and navigator as...

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 11:47

I would agree. They were terrible stock. Turbo's will always outperform NA in corners. 4's can sound nice compared to a 6, but the sound still can't compare to an 8 at full bore.

In my mind...

Friday, May 30, 2014 - 09:22

It's a muscle car-it needs to have at least 6 cavemen under the hood. They are right, you can play with the harmonics of the exhaust all you want, but it's going to have a "whine" sound to it and...

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 08:04

The ZEV's that are on launch from OEM's right now are purely compliance vehicles. Aside from the 20-30 year old hipster driving it 10 miles per day in his urban commute, you will not have high...

A big investment locally out this way and great for the people working at the location. Kudos to you Mr. Murphy for the shoutout to Homer. The south-central part of the state doesn't always get a...

This would be an interesting variant to compete with the new EcoBoost 4 cylinder that is going to be in the next Ford Mustang.

Friday, May 9, 2014 - 09:33

If I recall correctly, the first generation or two of the Caravan actually offered a manual gearbox. Which, on a minivan today, would be pretty awesome if done similar to the automatics now, with...

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 - 13:02

They have to offer a manual. An automatic in a 1.0L would be such a dog to drive. Younger people are more interested in truly "operating" their vehicle. There are some of us older folks that still...

Will Ram add their mid-sized offering from Latin America and Europe to North America?

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 14:15

They've got to make a Lincoln that people want if they don't want to be counted out. Last good looking Lincoln was the last generation of the Mark VIII. Current ones are nice, but that split-wing...

Getting rid of the ethanol in pump gasoline would also increase fuel efficiency by at least 5% and also raises the regular octane rating of 87 up to 90. The same would be said if ethanol was...
