...'69 light green Buick Electra 455 big block, man she was a torque monster, pulled pretty hard when you stood on it from a stop nice floaty but solid Caddy-like ride being based off the Eldorado...

Not related to FWD Eldorado at all.

My bad Balth. I was thinking the FWD Eldo didn't start until the mid 70's. The Electra was definitely a RWD 455 BB 💪🏻🇺🇸

The Electra was a C-body w/ some shared structure w/ the Olds 98 and Caddy Calais/deVille...

Yep, I was thinking the '69 Caddy Coupe deVille, '69 Electra just didn't have the defined fins like the iconic Caddy.

High School buddy's Dad had a white '69 Coupe deVille with the 472ci BB. Such a sweet car!

Firewall & above the beltline; hardly worth mentioning.

[I probably could stop myself if I really tried.]

Cadillac V8 wasn’t a big block... because there wasn’t also a small block.

[I apologize.]

Chassis and internal panels also, door inner panels, etc, I would think?   Suspension?     I know in olden days GM had a lot less standardization across brands than they did from '77 onward. 

On a semi-related topic, a Hollander Interchange Manual seems like it would be a lot of fun to pour through.

Chassis: no. The rest I’m not completely sure of. I would think the doors might be different lengths relative to the chassis. They don’t interchange, regardless.

Point was, they’re certainly unique enough, being under the same corporate umbrella, that mentioning any interchanges is irrelevant.

I did not know how to feel when I first read this post.  My inner toxic masculinity got offended :D

I was upset when they fired Don Cherry plus your post and my inner toxic masculinity went haywire and got confused...

But seriously. I wanted to laugh at this post, because there was slight humour in it. But then..I got to thinking. The way its written, its like the brand of Mustang is ONLY of mullets, toxic masculinity and Whitesnake... and its a bad thing...

1. OK...Whitesnake.  Hair metal rock...mullets....

Not really.

Whitesnake.  Those are Jaguars.

Image result for here i go again whitesnake jaguar gif"

 

2. Its only rock-n-roll, man.  But, Id accept if you had said Bon Jovi.  The Gino/New Jersey/Italian mullet hair style driving Mustangs and Camaros I could see, but that was a thing that existed only in the 1980s...

And no toxic masculinity there.

Just awesome machismo that today's males sorely lack!!! 

3. Which leads me to reason #3.

The Mustang in the 1960s was driven by the coolest cat of them all.

All the while being one of the coolest rides of them all....of ALL TIME in ANY generation and MARKET.

Image result for bullitt mustang steve mcqueen gif"

 

4. In the 1990s and into the 2000s, any mullet, or Ice Ice Baby 5.0 references have all been forgotten. 

And what you get is just the awesome branding of what Mustang is all about.

Movies that featured the Mustang as a backdrop. 

War of the Worlds

I am Legend

The remake of Gone in 60 seconds

Although I agree, that naming the EV as a Mustang branded EV may not be the brightest move (or it could be GENIUS  Image result for i don't know emoji" ), its not because the Mustang has a negative connotation, but because it might screw with the Mustang name...

Not so old Rolling Stones song...Like I said...its just Rock-N-Roll!!!

Toxic Femininity?

      NEURON EV

      CES 2020 has been a busy place this year with more auto companies showing of prototypes and finally production ready auto's than ever before. We have seen so much including the latest in super dense solid state batteries for the EVs to motorcycles and bikes.
      This year we now get to see the latest competition to Tesla and Rivian in a well funded California / China based EV auto company called NEURON EV. This company has a swiss army knife of a truck/suv auto as well as a Semi truck that they say is going into production in 2020.

      The truck which is seen here in Silver has a sister truck that was running around the streets which is the following Black T-One.

      All the details you could ever want can be found here on this truck: https://www.neuronev.co/new-products/t-one-p-gyrwr
      The cool thing about this modular truck is that is can be more than a truck, a tractor, a van. there are no limits to how one can configure up this beast of an EV.

      The seat options are an interesting take as you can go like how Tesla showed their Semi with a center driving position as a base 3 seat configuration of 3 captain chairs, or a single drivers captain chair and a bench seat behind for 4 people and go from there to cover a wide range of colors, materials, etc. in customizing your auto. 
      While this company is looking at this modular truck and semi for the US, in china they will have many more auto options including their V.E.G.A. or Versatile Electric Grand Automobile.

      The company has great plans and while they have only two models for the US market, China will get many more that includes a medium duty truck, a bus, a MAP or Multipurpose Autonomous Platform focused on shipping yards, a HUB or autonomous transportation auto, in addition to the car, semi and truck.
      NEURON EV has not released any details about their hp / torque other than to say class leading at this time. Two wheel drive and All Wheel Drive will be the choices folks will have and talk of a base 300 mile range battery pack. More details are to come later this year.
      First Press release of 2020 can be found here:

      At an event is Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Genesis finally unveiled their new GV80 luxury SUV.  The overall look of the GV80 has been leaking out on the internet for months, but we finally get the full official release now.
      The interior and exterior of the GV80 is designed with a common thread to give a familial look with the G70, G80, and G90.  The GV80 introduces a new quad headlamp design that will eventually filter out to the other vehicles in the Genesis lineup. The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.
      The GV80 is based on a unique new rear-wheel drive platform, while all-wheel drive is available.  In South Korea is till be equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine while the U.S. will get a choice between two unspecified turbocharged engines. All-wheel drive models in the U.S. will be equipped with an electronic rear limited slip differential.
      There is a host of safety and driving assistance technologies in the GV80 including Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Highway Driving Assist II, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot collision Avoidance Assist, Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and driver attention alert warning. In the event of a collision, there are 10 airbags, including a center mounted airbag between the front occupants. 
      The 2021 Genesis GV80 will go on sale in North America later this year.

      At an event in Vail, Colorado today, GMC took the wraps off the 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.  As before, the top of the Yukon lineup will be the Denali trim, but joining the Denali for the first time is the brand's new AT4 trim which is a more off-road ready version.
      The Yukon gets an all-new interior while the Denali gets its own exclusive version. The Denali instrument panel is completely new and there are also unique seats  and four color themes.  Real wood trims with a natural look and texture join with a Denali only leather, hand-stitched interior.  For the driver, there is a 15-inch diagonal multicolor heads-up display.  On the Denali, AT4, and SLT trims, there is an available power sliding center console that allow the console to slide back up to 10 inches offering a large storage area. 
      Joining the lineup is the AT4 version. All GMC nameplates except the Savanna will be getting an AT4 version by the end of this year.  The Yukon AT4 gets a unique front fascia, and body color or dark accents around the outside, and a pair of red recovery hooks on the front.  The AT4 can be ordered with a four-corner air ride adaptive suspension that can raise the vehicle an additional 2-inches. The air ride system also lowers the vehicle 0.75 of an inch when at speed and can lower the vehicle up to two inches for easier ingress and egress. 
      Also included in the Yukon AT4 are at two-speed transfer case, 20-inch wheels, traction select system with off-road mode, hill descent control, skid plats, AT4-exclusive leather appointed seats, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and heated outboard second row seats. 
      The 4th generation of GM's magnetic ride control is available in certain trims. Also available is an electronic limited slip differential. When in 4WD low, the eLSD operates at full lock to prevent wheelslip. 
      The Yukon will offer three engine choices. An all-new version of the 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque is a buy-up option. Standard is the venerable 5.3-liter, updated with new stop/start technology and dynamic fuel management which can allow the vehicle to run on as few a two cylinders.  Additionally, a 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel joins the Yukon for the first time.  No matter which engine is selected, the transmission is a 10-speed automatic activated through GMC's new Electronic Precision Shift push-button selector. 
      Like the recently revealed 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the Yukon gains 4.9-inches in wheelbase and that leads to a big increase in interior room.
