  1. Past hour
  2. I guess they kept the interior materials cheap to maximize profit...now I wonder if it will be priced competitively or if they will price gouge? So how does this compare to the Equinox in size? Looks tiny...
  3. Nice pun.. and Not at all. I just couldn't go back and edit. I hate that part of the newer software. LOL

  6. I will recommend you to buy refurbished laptops. They also come with great build quality plus you will get 6-12 months of warranty.
  7. Escape deserves better than than this. Might as well just been a station wagon... Ford does not need this to be a Mazda Cx 5 clone. The CX5 is a good CUV in it’s own right, and I expect this out of Mazda. I expect the Escape to at least try to keep some of it’s adventurous in going camping and out door stuff as the like. While I’m sure it will make a good car, that’s not the point here..
  8. A Hard Cheap Tupperware plastic interior is part of how KIA sells so many of its cars (Stinger and K900 aside). Of course, if Ford had its way, no one ever buy a three-box sedan for the next decade or three. Since the Escape is (relatively) cheap, Tupperware plastic interior comes with the package. A Lincoln Navigator it is NOT.
  9. A lot of people are going to have to NOT remember the 70s for GM to come close to former glories. Perhaps the 80s too.
  10. I think it looks like a last gen Mazda 3 with the smiley face front. While I think the Corsair looks pretty impressive, this does not. One hit, one miss. I think any of the 7 SUVs Hyundai has is more compelling than this.
  11. Yesterday
  12. It won’t make all that torque combined, because a lot of that electric torque will be when the gas engine is under 1500 rpm before it gets into it’s torque. But you will get a crazy flat torque curve and always have it.
  13. I agree that I also do not see why not to sell it being assembly is so close to home. Yet I also understand if the dealers feel the profit levels and what the customers are wanting does not justify this. I still think they should allow customers to order them if they want and wait to get it built and shipped in.
  14. Yes I believe so. I still see a good number of shortbed, regular cab trucks, in high trim levels, running around, most of them are Z71 models. The profit potential is tremendous. And with Barra being a slave to the shareholders, I see no reason what.so.ever why this bodystyle is not sold in the USA this time around.
  15. Great read, and I totally agree on the front end Tesla look. The back end is just bland and a real bummer to hear that the interior has gone backwards. I also will say that I would take a gas slurping 4 banger over an over worked turbo 3 banger any day. I get the feeling that Ford thinks they can move everyone to more expensive trucks and eventually kill off the Escape. Yet with that said, not everyone especially thoughts just starting out can afford a $50,000 auto and so this should be the starting out auto at a reasonable price with reasonable interior. A hard cheap Tupperware plastic interior is not it.
  16. Well this is 2.5 liter vs 1.6. I just don’t see why they didn’t pick one and run with it, hybrid as an option and N line as an option. 3 choices in a Sonata is enough.
  17. Tobias Moers is awesome. He gets all the performance stuff built that most bean counters at other car companies would not let see the light of day. Yeah needs the 48 volt battery with the electric compressor. But we are also talking lag on a fast car, it isn’t like a 90s Volvo that even with the turbo is like 8 seconds 0-60.
  18. You're mixing things up. I prefer larger displacement engines to small ones of similar output. 5-10 lbft here and there don't really matter.
  19. I understand how it and torque work. You usually back the NA V6 with less torque than the 2.0T when Cadillac used to have those 2. If the 1.6T is better drivability then just make the standard engine. I am not arguing one is better than the other, I just think it senseless to offer 2 engines so close in power output.
  20. It's better than the Altima, Accord, Passat, Arteon, Regal, and Malibu. Only the Camry and Regal GS have more. Maybe Maxima too if there is price overlap. But we may be finally moving into an era where torque is king again and we can finally get away from these relatively useless HP numbers.
