Yep, Wards 10 Best! Good find troll!! I didn't lie about a damn thing. Never said it wasn't was my screen name just said Ford makes a 6.2L as well LMAO! Thanks made my day! 🤣   

Hey look at you GM haters unite! You trolls are a great team on here. Haters gonna hate! This is good need to get some popcorn going! 😂 

And there goes the GM fanboy still trying to convince everyone that he is not a GM fanboy.  He also swears that he wasn’t “triggered” despite his above response to the contrary. 
 

Thanks for proving my general point about fanboys though. I criticized GM therefore I must be a GM hater. The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is my bucket list car and I’ve worked at two different Chevrolet dealerships in two different states but yeah, I’m a big ole’ GM hater. Seriously, where do you come up with this nonsense?

Finally, didn’t you also have the word “vortec” in that username?

Thanks for making my day GM fan.

Thanks for playing indeed GM fan. 

Who said I'm trying to convince everyone that I'm not a GM fanboy? I do prefer GM vehicles and I explained it to you in another post, but you had no reply because it was logical that which you have zero of with most of your definite "triggered" posts yesterday and today or it just went in one ear and out the other like usual.

Damn, you really did memorize my old screen name that's awesome!! This day just keeps getting better!!

Thanks for playing as well this was great and we get more clicks for the site! 😎 Try to get some sun tomorrow you're low on Happy and Vitamin D! 🤣

Oh I read the post @USA-1 and you should reconsider your definition of the word “logic” when 90% of your car related posts are pro-GM. This isn’t even a debatable point so I have to ask. Who are you trying to convince? Others or yourself?

With this merger things like Giorgio platform or some powertrains will live on no matter what, they might just live on in different brands.

Jeep and Ram survive, Peugeot will come to the USA and they are going to call a lot of shots.

Yeah, the Giulia does look good. Sounds good  great. Handles good  great.  The "F" part of FCA  missed the boat in marketing this car.  But then again, people are weary about Alfa Romeos and their notorious unreliability...

The Stelvio...like Balthy said, its a pudgy thing. Not appealing to the eye one bit.

Fun to drive you say?  Maybe. Its a CUV. Which brings me to you mentioning your Equinox. The Equinox is an appliance thing. It ain't meant to be fun to drive... 

Not hard to surpass an Equinox in terms of smiles per mile driven as compared to other "funner" CUVs. 

Firstly, The Stelvio is front engine, rear wheel drive as compared to the Equinox being FWD. Not that FWD automatically means boring, but the Equinox is tuned on purpose to NOT offend anyone.  Its purposely built to be boring.

Secondly, That 2.9 liter V6 makes some nice sounds when accelerating.  

About having a market.

That is the marketing department's job. But they need loads and loads of cash to convince people.  Cadillac billions amounts of cash. PSA does NOT want to fork over that kind of money around on the 2 brands (Maserati or Alfa) knowing they got more successful models on more successful brands to take care of. 

Yep, true points...

Just hope they can figure it out.....

      Infiniti is planning on launching five new models over the next 3 years. The first will be the QX55 that we reported on the other day.  It is a crossover coupe version of their QX50 crossover and is expected to be powered by the same 2.0-liter variable compression engine.
      Next up is the redesigned QX60. Expect it to look much more SUV like than that of a crossover. Infiniti says the styling will be dramatically different than the QX60 on the lots today. They mention that the gas powered model will have a large grille, which implies there will be an electrified model coming as well.  They are also planning on offering two 12.3-inch touch screens and a two-tone roof.  The QX60 is Infiniti's best selling vehicle.
      After that, Infiniti will be launching three electrified vehicles, a crossover and two sedans.  The vehicle will be offered as fully electric or with serial hybrid technology which is similar to that in the Chevy Volt where a gasoline engine recharges the batteries which power the car. Styling is expected to take after the Q-Inspiration concept shown at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.  The three vehicles are following a "three vehicles, one platform" concept and will all be related.

      Alfa Romeo still has some crossover rollouts coming, however a recent peak at the quarterly earning statement gave a clue as to what else is happening at the brand, and the truth is, it isn't much. During the earnings call this week, CEO Mike Manley said that Alfa's "future product lineup has been significantly scaled back with a corresponding reduction in capital spend." 
      Alfa currently has two products on the market in North America, the Giulia sedan and Stelvio crossover.  Those will both be getting a refresh for the 2021 model year.  That same year, a new C-segment crossover will make an appearance. This model, previewed by the Tonale concept car, will ride on the same platform as the Fiat 500x and Jeep Renegade. It should eventually be offered as a plug-in hybrid as well.  After that, a B-segment crossover should appear as well. 
      Once the crossovers are on the road though, there isn't much left.  The expected return of the GTV and 8C Competizione don't appear anywhere in the plans.

      Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been lagging behind other automakers in terms of electrification, tending to focus more on how many more vehicles they drop the Hellcat V8 into. But that appears to be changing.
      The Detroit Bureau had the chance to speak with FCA's new global powertrain chief, Micky Bly. He said that within the next twelve to eighteen months, FCA would try to reposition itself as one of the industry’s leaders in electrification.
      “We’re not leaders now,” said Bly, “but we will be soon.”
      Bly wouldn't go into detail as to how FCA plans to do this. But we already know that a number of FCA brands have plans for hybrid and electric vehicles - including a new Fiat 500e. Sources also revealed that there is the possibility of the Hellcat V8 being teamed with a mild-hybrid setup that could add 130 pound-feet, and only add around 100 pounds to the overall curb weight. There is also the possibility of a production version of the Chrysler Portal concept, going with a full electric powertrain.
