I knew many people who picked the ranger as the occasional hauler, yard work, towing, etc. Shame they discontinued it. I know Ford says that the F-150 can provide everything the Ranger did to it's...

You might get blowback from making the analogy that senior citizens should rather take autonomous cars vs driving themselves....

I would have to agree that they should have went there from the get go. Emissions regulations don't make it the easiest thing in the world, considering those trucks with the urea treatment only...

The more ethanol that is in gasoline, the worse your fuel efficiency will be. That will offset any savings at the pump. Increasing ethanol content will be a nightmare for those of us who have cars...

Oh, I caught it definitely. I'm just a diesel enthusiast who's disappointed we'll never get to see the Duramax's "little brother". You'd have a lot more pulling capability over the Vortec. And I'd...

Ought to put some fear into GM and Ford in the light truck segment. Light duty diesels have their advantages. Would love to see a dogfight between the EcoBoost, Vortec, Chrysler's light duty...

I believe you are correct that the car in the caption is a Fiesta and not a Focus.

It may achieve 67.5 mpg in the European test cycle, but as soon as they offer it in the U.S., Ford will be sued again, by people not achieving the EPA estimated numbers (which is achieved by using...

I would send them a gift basket for Christmas if they offered a diesel powertrain like they do globally. I concur with Kenny. I even think Ford dropped the ball by discontinuing the Ranger when...

They could always try the old fashion method of driving for a certain distance, filling up and then taking the miles on their tripometer divided by gallons filled, right? that or they could fill...

If that's the case, you have an argument for being able to go from Detroit (metro Detroit) to Traverse 2 times on 1 tank of fuel. You should only get better fuel economy as the tank gets lower as...

Is this actually a true 4-wheel drive (50/50 power split between axles) when it engages or will it be similar to AWD, which traditionally is more like 60/40?

The Dart's market performance would do much better if the Avenger wasn't canabilizing sales from it. Dodge needs to stop the Avenger if they want to increase the share of the Dart. The Avenger has...

So what you're saying is that the EPA should stay as far away as possible from say, quarter-mile dragway? Where exhaust systems are usually just headers to an ORP and if you ask about a catalytic...

If you're talking about a pure street truck, 380 hp and 440 lb.-ft. from an intercooled Eaton Gen IV supercharger that could hit 140mph, there was nothing better.

Monday, July 1, 2013 - 13:26

Big difference to me would be the supercharger in the SVT Lightning compared to the Tremor's EcoBoost (turbocharger).

Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 15:16

So this is the replacement for the SVT Lightning that has been in the grave for a good decade now? Looks like it could be lowered a bit or needs ground effects. I could swear that the 'Tremor"...

Those in the industry know that if GM and Chrysler would have went under, for every 1 automotive job lost, 3-4 more would be lost when factoring in suppliers. It would have near crippled Ford as...

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 13:02

It's not really a question of "they couldn't" meet the new emissions standards, Ford just decided to go a different route with powertrains and not invest any additional money into the engine lines...

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 11:07

This makes me long for the days of Ford's 300, 302 and 351 OHV engines. Seems they could have keep 1 or 2 of them as pushrods and then offered a upgrade V-8 with DOHC. I don't think it's really a...

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 13:26

I guess you would also have the added benefit of regular gasoline with the V-8. Once you go forced induction, you really "ought" to use premium. And if regular is already at $4.29/gallon, it won't...

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 12:41

The EcoBoost in the Focus ST could probably be reflashed with a new ECU program from Ford and it could put out more power on an engine dyno. The problem is, the closer you get to 300hp the worse...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 13:55

I bet the test drive was going very well until the engine started to stall. One could see the proverbial balloon popping overhead regarding GM's fresh attempt at a domestic diesel. Did they not...

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 - 09:54

Jeep better be careful. Someone may purchase the diesel powered Grand Cherokee and not get the milleage advertised and they could get sued. OEMs will have to start low-balling the estimates to...

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 10:34

Just seems like the value proposition isn't there (not a lot of car, short range, lot of money). Sure, it's gas-free and if you have a short commute, it'd be a nice way to save on fuel. But tests...

$27k for a compact car that is nothing more than a compliance vehicle. 12k miles for the total 3 years of the lease or 12k miles per year?

What's the price of the non-EV Spark?

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 09:34

And they base that off the results from the EPA test cycle (which is flawed). By that logic the '99 Civic I own that coninually gets 37-38 real world mpg's in mostly city driving, should force me...

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 08:22

Sadly, I believe you are correct.

Monday, May 20, 2013 - 13:58

You're excatlly right. My dealer told me that replacement OEM plugs would be $16/each in addition to a good hour of labor. Absurd. Stick with inline engines. Much easier to do it yourself. If you...

Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 09:58

Assuming that the average car buyer has common sense when it comes to information about a vehicle would be "one giant leap for mankind". I doubt even 15-20% of new car buyers even bother reading...
