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...

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...

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...

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...

Monday, May 13, 2013 - 16:01

Again, I think it all goes back to the EPA test cycle at the end. Most of the gas savings on a turbocharged engine is in the design stage with the engine being made smaller and "lighter". A...

Friday, May 10, 2013 - 13:56

That's very true. I think automakers should try to talk a bit more about being in boost, as the average consumer doesn't know how a turbocharger even works. A light foot is hard to come by when...

Friday, May 10, 2013 - 08:42

I think the author is trying to convey that with all the new tech that is going around the OEM's, (turbo's, etc.), that will be targeted as issues with the EPA test cycle vs. real world fuel...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 13:45

Ronald, how fast do you drive on the highway? 75? 70? 65? 60? Will you give an honest answer or will we just have to trust you? The EPA test cycle uses non-standard gasoline. Mileage will be less...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 11:35

That, and the EPA test cycle isn't right either. Why would the test cycle require 100% gasoline (no ethanol) and the gas we use everyday at the pumps contains 10%? Of course the 10% ethanol is...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 10:14

That's not always the case. Most drivers, I guess I should say most American drivers, operate their vehicles on a daily basis like they are at Indy or Talladega. They flog their cars on a daily...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 10:29

The problem with the cheaper premium in Europe is the emissions laws. You can thank all our friends at the NHTSA for requiring OEMs to make changes to squeeze even lower emissions from the...

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 14:11

So before the tax credit, the vehicle purchase from the dealer will be around $32,000? Not bad for a compliance vehicle. Although if you wanted more cabin space and an extra $17,000 for gas fill-...
