Maybe there should be a war on hallucinagenic drugs after all.

I learned a long time ago to not read Facebook comments as they are generally from people who are unhinged and/or without a firm grasp on reality. A bunch of keyboard warriors who can barely make the payment on their '15 Malibu are not Cadillac's target market. 

If Cadillac makes a product with a powertrain equal or greater than Tesla and actually puts some style back in their vehicles (unlike the puke worthy stuff they have out now - excepting remaining CT6 and '21 Escalade) then I'll be back in the Cadillac camp.... but they've gotta make the vehicles look GREAT. 

Well spoken.

Yeah, Laredos are in that range.  My current one is a Limited, my next would be an Overland or a Summit.  Though another CPO makes more sense than new.  But it’s all hypothetical since my ‘14 only has 49k.  I really don’t see myself shopping for at least another 3-5 years.  

You'll probably be shopping for the new platform by the time you're ready to trade, so everything you know about the current vehicle will be out the window.

I checked out the configurator for Rivian R1S.  Spec'd out a 5-seat in Forest Green w/ green interior, Adventure package.   $81k... love the green interior and exterior, but if I were shopping in 2021, I'd get another Grand Cherokee for $30k less...

The one I specd out was $79,500 in Forest Green w/Green Interior and 7 seats.

Maybe...or a 3 yr old CPO 2021 in 2024...  looking forward to seeing how the new one turns out, but I wouldn't want a first year one.

@ocnblu Did you see the new color for Jeep for 2021?

That looks fantastic. Sorry it's not available on the Wrangler or Gladiator.

Well it's Mary Barra's "choice" to throw Cadillac away, certainly not mine.  And if you think I'm the only one who thinks this way, go over to the newfangled thing they call "Facebook" and you will see plenty of negative comments regarding Barra's "choice" on this matter.

Surreal, you're so right, I'm shiverin' in my boots.  :rolleyes:

Ah, relying on Facebook as a barometer for your EV claim. Sounds legit lol. As far as Cadillac being thrown away, you should have been worried about that starting forty plus years ago when they started peddling one failed model after another but yeah, it’s them going EV that somehow ruins the brand (heavy use of sarcasm intended here for those “cerebral” types).

 

And No one is asking you to shiver in your boots. However, you should feel like a hypocrite because that is a far more accurate assessment. Making light of Americans losing their jobs shows just how petty your ridiculous argument towards EVs really is. I don’t want to ever see another post by you proclaiming “America first”.

I like the Gold on the Rivian....and regardless of features, I like the idea of a clean used Grand Cherokee as a tow vehicle.

Hmm.....a couple ideas for adding light to my Cavalier.... 😉  Though the tail light one is cool....

And as much as I hear of “All EV” future, it is not going to happen. It would take 20 years, maybe more to junk even half the ICE cars out there. And there are still things a EV can’t so yet, like Survive extreme temps....

I see maybe a 60/40 tops in the ICE/EV amounts. It’s going to take a while before prices will be down enough for the general public tp buy, or simply build a used EV market.

Serious air time with both cars in chase, painful to watch finned Mopar destroyed at the end. 

 

More Rivan developments...
