    True, but you wouldn't know it by the hype on facebook! Though I have to say the deals on sedans right now are making me rethink an CUV (Escape, Nox) . And thhe deals on the malibu and fusion keep getting better....

  6. Looks like this Ferrari has more than enough torque--look at the numbers.. 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds 0-124 mph in 7.6 seconds

    US CUV/SUV sales still seem pretty strong..I see a lot of Jeeps, lots of GM models from Equinoxes to Tahoes/Burbans/etc around...plenty of Fords also. Was the same way in AZ--saw a lot of domestic CUVs/SUVs amidst a lot of import brands..

    Weird as I see plenty of domestic CUV/SUVs with EV versions.
  9. Your missing the point, you get the shove at higher gears at higher speeds, it is NOT about starting from zero. Torque gives you that push at higher gears and speed if the motor is built to support torque through the whole rpm band. Too many of the High Revving DOHC engines spin and produce HP but no Torque and as such you get minimal performance boost. HP helps maintain that high speed but to accelerate fast, you need more torque.
  10. Very Cool, I like that it has the Escalade type rear tail lights and the front, over all not bad. The dash from what is visible is exciting to see the change, hopefully it will get rolled out sooner rather than later into all products as they refresh the dash.

    Only a small minority of kids are doing this...it is just an odd fad. And yes, I think we are in for some rough times in the auto industry. I wonder how SUV sales will go in terms of imports-I see fewer and fewer domestic SUV's on the road all of the time it seems.
  12. Yeah, I would wage good money most people buying this car will be trailering it to and from the track. Just because it will be driven on public roads doesn't mean it was designed for public roads. Yeah, I brought up pushrods as they're the only thing comparable to the low end tq that dfelt was referring to. I didn't bring up 70's Pontiacs as they're irrelevant to the discussion. YUP. You better be buying The General so you can have your low end tq for the race tracks!
  13. Basically what I got from the discussion that everyone who buys a Ferrari is a sucker and they all have to buy a Camaro. Right ...

    Sadly, it's going to be a mess over there. I just hope I do not see much in layoffs, since I have many friends who work there. Sucky part is that it is going to mean mean we are going to lose some cool stuff at Ford... Two words sum it up- Tide Pods Scary part is I almost can't blame the kids anymore......

  19. Is the 488 street legal? Wipers, horn, lighting, etc? Yes, the article clearly states so. The idea that's any 488 is going to be trailered to & from a track, accelerated once and then drive at redline for X laps, coast down & get reloaded into it's trailer / back to the mothballs, is delusional. Everyone knows these will be driven around on public streets, regardless of how the ferrari ad men pitch it. ccap brought pushrods into the discussion.

    That is AWESOME. We need to capitalize on this technology, asap.
  22. Cadillac's infotainment system has been the bane of automotive writers and owners. CUE has been described as being difficult annoying to use, part of this due to the touch-sensitive 'buttons' which doesn't always recognized when pressed. But it seems Cadillac is going back to basics in terms of their infotainment system. Spy photos of the upcoming XT4's interior have made their way onto various sites today. Underneath the infotainment screen, there are rows of physical buttons for the climate control and various safety functions. We can also make out a controller behind the transmission, which may provide another method of controlling the infotainment system. Other details that can be made out include stitching around the touchscreen and paddle shifters behind the wheel. We're expecting to see Cadillac unveil the XT4 next month at the New York Auto Show.

    The Italian equivalent to built by elves in the Black Forrest...maybe built by Guido in an alley? Offshore wind farms that are not tethered to the sea bed are doing much better than expected...significant because a whole lot of wind energy is available offshore in waters over 60 meters deep.

    "inappropriate behavior" is all it says, keeping it confidential. He was with Ford for almost 30 years.
