4-cylinder in a muscle car that is sub 300hp. Sorry, that's a fail right there. Not to mention, the NA V-6 (that has 300+ hp), will probably average better real world fuel economy, as turbo's get...

I'm not saying they're stupid either, however, the push towards hybrid/electric as the only "good" means to hit the target is misguided in my opinion. Not calling for it, but you can get tax...

Farm livestock create more greenhouse gas than all vehicles do combined. You haven't seen CARB or the legislature/executive branch mandating special diapers on bovines have you?

That's correct, it did not receive the underwhelming 2-valve. That Mark VIII had a lot of power on those rear wheels (for it's time).

Take it to Nurburgring and tell us the lap time. Then we'll know what it can do.

Shame Jeremy Clarkston won't get his hands on one....

I'm hoping for a clean, used TDI Volkswagen. Much better return on investment than a hybrid, even with a $.60/gallon fuel disadvantage.

Freon doesn't effect the performance or handling of the vehicle. Powertrain changes and weight reduction can and does. Safety changes to keep people alive or "safer" in crashes is not same as...

Further proof that American consumers do not want to buy the hybrid/electric options if that have the choice. Even sub-compact vehicles like the Focus have suffered by the falling price of...

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 - 16:07

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.

Thursday, January 15, 2015 - 09:36

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 - 09:09

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 - 14:36

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 - 10:21

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...
