  2. Cadillac 4 Da WIN!!! CTS-V vs E63S AMG Head 2 Head

    Personally, I would take the CTS over Benz without a doubt, but I find it funny when you blame him choosing MB over Caddy just because he "hates" GM, while you get your panties in a bunch every time anyone says anything against GM or even chooses something else. Every time in Motor Trend or Car and Driver comparison a GM car looses, they are a bunch of morons that don't know anything but as soon as GM car wins they are suddenly an authority.

  4. Cadillac 4 Da WIN!!! CTS-V vs E63S AMG Head 2 Head

    I won't even get into FACT that the Mercedes doesn't even look special.. in fact its down right ugly and plain.. WTF is this a Corolla??? Looks like DOG shit.. ain't no luxury styling.
  5. Cadillac 4 Da WIN!!! CTS-V vs E63S AMG Head 2 Head

    It won.. on top of that its 3 years older and still won. Looks may be subjective but its better lookin.. BTW I live in the NE.. we are prone to storms in the winter, but really .. I turn my Yukon into AWD setting maaaaaybe 5X during the entire fuckin year. U're reachin. Softer ride.. have U ever even been in a CTS-V? MRC in touring mode is pretty damn soft. Interior? 3 years difference. Not to mention.. a literal $20K difference in base prices and I still don't even remotely see where Benz put an extra $3K let alone $20K. U like the Benz BECAUSE its not GM.. if the CTS-V was a Ford U'd be suckin its balls... U're delusional.
  6. Random Thoughts Thread

    Is it wrong I like both? Want to enjoy it all....
  7. There may be three reasons why this is happening; 1. This is needed to improve the fuel economy for justifying Camaro sales with big V8 engines. 2. This is being done to maximize the economy of manufacturing a 7-speed manual transmission for multiple models. 3. This gives the Alpha platform the architecture it needs to integrate the 7-speed manual into other cars like the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS. Maybe, just maybe, the CTS-V will get the 7-speed manual with the LT-4 engine that is already in the Z06?
  8. Here's Why the Chevy SS Was a Total Failure

    Demuro is usually an interesting read, as is Ezra Dyer and the guy on Jalopnik who's into old Jeeps (can't recall his name)
  9. I heard steam is boiling up pretty fast.
  10. Here's Why the Chevy SS Was a Total Failure

    demuro isn't intelligent enough to be controversial.
  11. Here's Why the Chevy SS Was a Total Failure

    you know a car's boring when it makes doug demuro controversial by comparison

    Time and Money, my suburban is the project. 1994 GMC SLE to become eventually EV power with a Frunk!

  14. Yes, for some things you just need a truck or van. For moving boxes from my garage to my storage unit, I rented a van for a few hours from UHaul--do it in one trip rather than multiple trips with my Jeep. For hauling tools, soil, trees, etc for yard work, my landscaper and my yard guy have pickups w/ trailers. Different tools for different tasks.
  15. LOL nothing special about it if that rumor is true.
  16. OK fine. When will these luxury EVs be available for anyone to test or buy? At least with the Teslas and Chevy Volt/Bolt, one can buy any of them right now.
  17. A CUV is not a pickup truck by a long shot. Tall or long objects won't fit in a CUV. A pickup truck with 6' bed can handle 8' or 10' lumber. It can handle a refrigerator or a warsh machine, etc. etc. etc.
  18. Random Thoughts Thread

    I keep waiting for photos of the Grand Cherokee, Trailblazer SS, Escalade and/or Suburban, post EV conversion. When are you going to post those, dfelt?
  19. Chevrolet News:Rumorpile: Chevrolet Camaro Getting A Seven-Speed Manual?

    Nice to see investments in manuals continue, though so few cars have them and so few people buy them anymore. Wouldn't mind having a manual again in something fun.
  20. This all comes down to Jaguar building a better mouse trap. Because the German trio are all making electric sedans too. Tesla is doing well because they are the only game in town right now. When there are 5 full size EV sedans on market, then it gets back to who does it best.
  21. Diesel is the past, electricity is the future.
  22. Last month, we reported that work had begun on the next-generation Jaguar XJ. The company's director of design Ian C https://t.co/bUBuaWEW0P

  23. I originally just assumed it was the same unit in the Corvette but if it's a different unit then it doesn't make much sense unless they manage to rate it like 2mpg better..which I doubt. If they could manage the Vette's there's no reason not to use it. I assume a taller OD plus tighter ratios is probably a performance gain across the board. 7th would only be used on the interstate anyway to the awkwardness of shifting to 7th couldn't be that bad.
  24. We live in interesting times and the auto world is ripe for a major upheaval. This could come in the form of the new leading luxury makers not being German. I like the idea of an EV XJ. Being that luxury cars are not driven as much as other auto's, this makes total sense and I could see a new top dog luxury maker come out of the change over in the industry from ICE to EV. I really hope Cadillac has something special for the New York Auto Show.
  25. Cool, but why offer an M6 and M7, that makes no sense to me but says wasted money. Tremec has a manual 7 speed by rear dif built. ZF only has a 6 speed manual. Anyone know if there is like an 8 or 9 speed manual for performance cars?
  26. Last month, we reported that work had begun on the next-generation Jaguar XJ. The company's director of design Ian Callum said it would be "something quite special." What that may mean is the next XJ transition to being an electric-only model. Autocar has learned that Jaguar is planning to reinvent the XJ into being a fully-electric model to take on the like of the Tesla Model S, and provide an interesting alternative to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Design-wise, the XJ will morph into a 5-door model - something akin to an Audi A7 we're guessing. It will also debut a new design language that will be used on future models. In terms of platform, the new XJ will use an all-new platform that will be shared with an upcoming model from Land Rover - the Road Rover we reported in the Rumorpile back in September. The platform will be capable of being equipped with internal-combustion or electric powertrains. For the XJ, it is believed that twin electric motors will be used to power and provide AWD. Autocar expects the car launch in 2019. Source: Autocar View full article

  28. AutoGuide recently obtained a California Air Resources Board (CARB) document listing the pairings for the 6.2L V8 and various transmissions for the 2019 Camaro and Corvette. In the 'Trans Type' column, the Camaro is listed with M6, M7, and SA8. The middle one is the interesting bit as it hints that the Camaro will get a seven-speed manual. AutoGuide believes the seven-speed in question is the one used in the Corvette. But there arises an issue with this conclusion. The seven-speed manual transmission for the Corvette mounts at the rear axle, whereas the manual transmission for the Camaro mounts at the engine. So GM could either figure out some way of finagling the Corvette's seven-speed into the Camaro or there is something else in the works. We'll be keeping a close eye on this.
