    Land Rover News: Land Rover Debuts New Inline-6 Engine

    The I6 is a good idea and congrats to Land Rover for installing a very modern I6. Too bad GM ditched the Atlas I6 after the Morain OH plant shuttered in 2008. An I6 would be a great base engine for the trucks and RWD Cadillac/Camaro/Corvette.

    Hmmm, yes first the electric will only control the spark... And then over time the engine lost control of propelling the car altogether. The electric developed further, overtime taking over more and more functions of the engine. And then the electric motor achieved cost and technological parity. After that the engine died out. Eons later no one knows to this day why combustion was favoured over electric.

    But was the body still 100% in tact or rust holes everywhere. I hear the Salt Brine there loves to eat auto's for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

    GM News: GM To Launch Electric Bike Brand in Europe

    There you go. Your overpriced Blazer funds overpriced bikes. Europeans are on the whole much healthier and therefore lighter than Americans. They don't need the assist. I see this going two ways. It either makes money but still is a waste of time. Or it doesn't make money and it's a collosal waste of time. Wait I get. They want to make autonomous bikes. No pedaling... No handlebar. Just sit hunched over and look at your phone the whole damn time with wind in your face. It's the new convertible! So good!

    6-wheeled '68 Caddy rumbleseat for sale

    Pictures confirm 8 exhaust per side, makes me think it has dual V8 engines based on the info on the website, but clearly no other information to confirm this. Dual V8's tied together is very cool.

    It's like artificial intelligence. Dumb now, smart later. Never bet against it though. And our old ways will be left to turn to dust, and then become extinct.
  9. These prices are right inline with current electric bikes here in the States and in Europe. Benefit of the GM eBike is that it has class leading Torque and a cell phone holder with USB and Bluetooth. Now celebrating 10 years here in Seattle, you can compare and see that the prices are inline with what GM is selling them for in the 3 largest European market. https://www.seattleelectricbike.net/ A number of US eBike dealers are willing to import this bike for those that are interested.

    Now that is a good deal....
  11. MEH, so complex, so expensive to maintain and repair. Give me an Electric power train over this mess.
  12. Weird, just checked and their story from this morning is gone. Bummer, it was funny and good I thought.

    Interesting...a related bit of trivia--around 30 years ago the Mitsubishi Galant was sold in Canada badged as the Dodge 2000 GTX and Eagle 2000 GTX.

    Prices are going up by crazy numbers all around for gasoline cars, but the price of electric or electrified cars is staying fairly flat. Base price for a Blazer is $30k for FWD. Only way to get AWD is move to the V6 model and get dinged for $35k... for a vehicle that has no more room than the previous generation Equinox... and remarkably similar engine choices. Compact sedans getting canceled in favor of crossovers that go for $6k to $10k more on the same platform. Transposing a Sonic into a Trax doesn't cost GM $6,000, but that is how much more it will cost you and very soon you won't have a choice if you're buying new. Fiesta / Ecosport. Dart / Cherokee. Same formula. The price of the Suburban has gone up $1k a year over the last 10 years. V6 engines will soon be extinct in mid-size cars moving to cheaper 4-cylinder turbos. The manufacturers took that savings and still raised prices on the Turbo cars. Mercedes will sell you a base model stripped out 4-cylinder hatchback for just $33k. The Honda Insight is $2k cheaper than the Civic Si. The Lease only Honda Clarity is $199 a month $1700 down. A base Accord is $249 a month $2100 down. Lincoln offers the MKZ as a Turbo-4 or Hybrid-4 either way, same price. Toyota offers the Avalon or Avalon Hybrid with just a $1k price spread.

    I find that hard to believe given the number of posts you've made on the subject.

    And that is going to be the case for EVs soon too... except the fill up schedule is different. PA is installing EV chargers at the state parks (the tab is being paid for by VW), so you can go hiking or whatever while your car nurses on the EV grid. Here in Pittsburgh, even if one doesn't have a charger at home, there are charging stations all over including in parking garages downtown. I have a friend with a Volt out in Columbus OH who lives in an apartment and doesn't have charging there, but he has charging available at work. So he charges while he's at work and rarely ever uses gasoline in in Volt. He only ever fills up with gas every 3 months. He could probably get by with a Bolt, but he got the Volt for cheap. EV charging is just a changing of mindset.... I know that will be difficult for certain people.

    They'll do it by raising the price of petroleum vehicles towards parity. They've already started.

    $106K Buick... and climbing

    I'm with @balthazar on this one. It's a fine powertrain, but outside of that I'm not all that interested.
