    I'd like to know his basis for his claim of "on the verge of high inflation, high unemployment", when the inverse is the case. I also missed the mention of when/2019. - - - - -

    Cadillac News: Spying: 2020 Cadillac Escalade Makes An Appearance

    Yeah...but for now, 755 horsepower in a ZR1 is also keeping the Mopar Hellcat/Demon/Red-eye muscle guys at bay...like I said, the Vette is just as much a muscle car as it is a bonafide sportscar or GT car... And yes, a mid-engined Zora Vette will probably be a track monster. Rolls Royce and Bentley...yup, they got SUVs too now. The one beacon of light Cadillac has got is the Escalade. Aside from the 1950s and early 1960s when Cadillac had some models in the Rolls price range, the Eldorado was always Cadillac's image car. No Rolls Royce or Bentley ever took that away from Cadillac. The Bentayga and Cullinan could be pricier than the Escalade. I have a sneaky suspicion that the Escalade will always be the measuring stick...like how the Eldorado was back in the day. With the new 'Slade coming for 2020, let us see what Cadillac does with it. If it beats the Navigator in quality and looks, then the Escalade will continue to be the big daddy of SUVs. And while the 'Gator does indeed have a 3.5liter ecoboosted 6 under the hood and it sells on par with the 'Slade, and Cadillac retains all that what makes a 'Slade a 'Slade with a high displacement V8, then all the reason to believe the 'Slade is indeed the biggest and baddest. And yes, maybe Cadillac could go higher in price range with an SUV than the Escalade. But then again, the Cadillac that cost as much or more than a Rolls Royce in the 1950s was still named Eldorado...therefore if Cadillac wants to go 50 000 dollars more on a SUV, Escalade could/should be its name. We do agree with EVs!!!
  5. The Mercedes/AMG M178 (4.0 bi-turbo) is 461 lbs. The LT1 V8 is 465 lbs but the LT4 with the Supercharger is 529 lbs. When you compare boosted to boosted the AMG engine is lighter more fuel efficient too. But Cadillac could care less about Escalde weight, so why not put the CT6-V engine in there? Do something.

    i like how you went back and remembered to rant about me in your post plz do it again
  7. I imagine a 500 hp mid engine Corvette will be faster around a race track than a 755 hp ZR1 that just spins it’s tires. And yes to an EV Escalde or Cadillacs SUV. The Escalde is not the biggest, baddest, wealthiest SUV anymore. Rolls-Royce has a much bigger much more luxurious much more powerful SUV, Bentley and Lambhave them, ther is the G-wagen that starts $25k higher than the Escalde stops and there are more $200k plus SUVs on the way. I actually think Cadillac needs an SUV that starts $50k above the Escalade Platinum and operates in the $150-200,000 price range.

    GMC News: GMC Offers A Performance Pack For Sierra AT4

    Nope not even gonna get close to the Hummer specs. The Hummer H3 had 4.56 on the rear axel with a 69:1 crawl ratio if you had the Manual Trans or 59:1 crawl if you had the automatic. The Hummer H2 had 4.10 on the rear axel with a 33:1 crawl ratio on the automatic.

    Well.. personally I hate Hyundai.. and anyone that defends them I wouldn't mind seeing go themselves as well. I love GM.. and Ford because they have history.. they make great vehicles still.. and they are American. Absolutely. This year alone. GM's only failure when U really look at it.. is their inability to.. NO SCRATCH THAT.. unwillingness to market properly or enuff. I actually believe in my heart of hearts that GM is killing the Cruze, for instance, because they can not make money off of it under UAW manufacturing contracts. The money they would use, that foreign manufacturers use to advertise their small cars is the same money GM (and Ford.. and Chrysler) have to use to pay UAW salaries.

    6.2L is a OHV engine. Cam in block.. still physically smaller than the 4L DOHC engines. If I remember correctly a Mercedes 4.0L engine, undressed and without the turbo intercoolers, that resides in the S63 weighs in at 460lbs. The 6.2L in the Stingray fully dressed weighs in at 460lbs

    Not as remarkable as a simple thread about an engine lawsuit turning into a butt mad extravaganza.

    In all fairness there is no comparison betwern Hyundai and GM. GM has built tons more remarkable vehicles than Hyundai.

    Still dazed and confused at they reasons why the ignition switch thing ever occurred. It was proven that the inclusion of billions of keys and a bunch of bullsh!t on the the key ring was what led to the issue.. I guess in truth GM should have tested their ignition switches to a point that the device could have held the weight of an 3 month old before they released the vehicles. But that's pretty much a moot point.. as they fixed the issue a decade ago and went a step further in equipping a great deal of their line-up with key-less ignition.. GO FAP on that. Preferably with the door locked and a box of Kleenex ready and waiting

    HA! Those were not driver error... But yeah... whatever. Listen Blake Lively... I already got into trouble with you last year or so, my posts got deleted because you were trolliing, the same way you are now... You told me you were a journalist and I insulted you to the point where Drew erased my posts, gave me warnings... You are here to seek revenge because I made you look like an idiot the last time... Drew cares more to protect his posse than actually weed out the shyte that people like you spew... Im probably going to get another warning and this post is gonna get erased... But in short If you cant see some parallels with the lyrics of both songs from Twisted sister and Skid Row made in jest to you, then I cant help your that you just may have a stick up your ass! Then to boot, you insult me... You call me a druggie...lkike why? What the phoque is your problem? I was banned the last time I was here about 9 Months ago, for far less than what you just did....that is why I stopped posting... Now...its easy for me to stop coming in here, and you and your posse could rule this kingdom free from me... Ask your phoquing buddy...

    The only smoke is coming off the rear wheels of the Trans Am in his sig line. He is that goofy naturally without chemical enhancement.
