    Pullman -despite the obvious cross-industry grab- is a good name, but ‘autobiography’ literally makes no sense as applied to an automobile. I don't mind Portfolio, but still prefer Fleetwood- one of the longest running names ever.

    What Trump did his own FAKE News? Shocker This goes along with the statement that Mexico also said was FALSE, Trump's claim that Mexico was going to buy immediately a ton of US produce. Which would drive an increase in truck sales to move it. Yet again not happening. At least for now, this Tariff thing is over with Mexico and we can move on with our focus on work and life. Truckin since it sounds better than SUVin, lol

    Offer something of substance @ocnblu because while you “laugh” at the post of others, those others are clearly laughing at you and those obvious partisan blinders. Maybe getting off your knees and wiping your mouth off would be better than swallowing every ounce of Trumps lies and nonsense. Not holding my breath but one can always hope that you actually want to discuss matters of importance instead of trolling the discussion nonstop and serving up snide and unrelated comments with the goal of basically insulting anyone who dares to point out the endless steam of bull$h! coming out of Trumps mouth. You’d think his supporters would get tired of the snowballing quite honestly.

    Of course he’s the one that came to your mind. There were others but only Obama was worth mentioning right? And you have the hypocrisy to mock folks who go after Trump?

    Must be why Trump was trying to nominate himself for it in regard to his “great” work with N. Korea. Would it be great then? Talk about clutching some pearls. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa-trump/trump-makes-his-case-for-nobel-peace-prize-complains-hell-never-get-it-idUSKCN1Q42FJ

    What? What about pearls? OK...I think I see where you are coming from. Yeah...I agree...I TOTALLY can see that Trump and pearl necklaces go hand in hand.... Something about Jr. makes me think that he too, enjoys a pearl necklace from time to time. BTW. It was a lovely O'Day today in Montreal. Nice and sunny, not Stormy at all...

    It is usually fun to see non-production concept cars in commercials.'cause the only electric VW builds now is in the same body shape they've been producing since -IIRC- 1977. BUT VW really should 'batten down all it's hatches' before this sort of thing -if it became regular- mars the EV push : https://finance.yahoo.com/news/audi-recalls-first-electric-car-165340036.html

    They have CNBC on here at work and they keep talking about how great of a negotiator Trump was and how we avoided the tariffs. Easy to "avoid" tariffs when the solution to them was already agreed to 3 months ago.

    The tariffs that Trump had threatened to impose on Mexico starting June 10th will not be going on to effect. Trump tweeted out that Mexico had made concessions to deploy their newly formed Nation Guard to their own southern border and that it only took two days for Mexico to bend to Trump's demands. This is false. The truth, according to a report in the New York Times is that Mexico had already agreed to do that back in March 2019 during secret talks between the (at the time) Director of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and the Mexican Secretary of Interior Olga Sanchez. Further, Trump claimed a victory via his tariff efforts saying that he had reached an agreement that Mexico would hold more asylum-seekers on the Mexican side of the border while the U.S. processes their cases. The timing of this is also false. The agreement was already reached at the same meeting in March. Where Trump failed was in getting Mexico to accept a "Safe Third Country" treaty that would have given the U.S. the ability to reject asylum seekers if they had not first sought asylum in Mexico. In opposition to the tariffs was many Senators from Trump's own party, including the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who said, "There is not much support in my conference for tariffs, that's for sure". Many in the GOP were whispering that the Senate was going to pass a resolution disapproving of the tariffs, causing embarrassment for Trump and making him look weak. Most likely that whispering got to Trump himself and so then he laid claim to the previously agreed "concessions" from Mexico in order to save face and drop the tariff while claiming victory. Many business leaders too were calling for relief from the tariffs, the auto industry would have been hit especially hard with a significant number of components passing over the border multiple times. Below is a list of vehicles that are currently assembled in Mexico for U.S. consumption: Audi Q5 BMW 3-series Chevrolet Blazer Chevrolet Cruze Chevrolet Equinox Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Chevrolet Trax Dodge Journey Fiat 500 Ford Fusion Ford Transit Connect GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab GMC Terrain (certain models) Honda Fit Honda HR-V Hyundai Accent Infiniti QX50 Jeep Compass Kia Forte Kia Rio Lincoln MKZ Mazda 3 Mercedes-Benz A-class Nissan Frontier (certain models) Nissan Kicks Nissan Sentra Nissan Versa Nissan Versa Note Nissan NV200 Cargo Ram 1500 Regular Cab Ram 2500/3500/4500/5500 Ram ProMaster Toyota Tacoma Toyota Yaris Volkswagen Beetle Volkswagen Golf Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Volkswagen Jetta Volkswagen Tiguan

    That'll take time, money and it'll be a tough engineering project. The 9T65 barely fits all the 9-gears in its envelope which is about the same as the 6T75. It actually uses a chain drive to connect the axle to the output ring gear. If you want more torque handling, the transmission needs get bigger or it needs to lose gears or it needs exotic materials. IMHO, speeds are not as useful as many people think. Ford did not find the 9-speeds to be any more efficient than its 8-speeds and hence did not adopt them despite paying for part of their R&D. What's more important is the ratio spread. I'll venture to say that a 6-speed or even 5-speed will be practically as efficient as a 9 or 10-speed if it has the same ratio spread of 7.6:1. This is particularly so when you have an engine with a torque plateau of 348 lb-ft @ 1500-4000 rpm.

    love...LOVE that Indigo Blue Challenger I was gonna post a Go Mango Challenger Hellcat with Black Racing Stripes but the Challenger has been done. So...I go on a different route. Now...My favorite MODERN car WOULD be the Challenger Hellcat/Red Eye...but...Ill find another one. Ok...from "a/the" previous poster. I like the CT6 and Id do a Black or Pearl White Black Wing if it existed...but the CT6 has been done. Ill do the Grand Cherokee. I dont like SUVs but Im OK with this SUV. Since the Challenger has been taken, and...there is a Hellcat version of this , Id like an red one please. Or better yet, the Maroon one looks goooood. Grand Cherokee Trackhawk The more I look at this Caddy, the more I like it. CT5 V And in this colour. (Burnt Orange?) But Id probably would want the Blackwing V8 in it. And in this colour, Id probably rip off ALL the CT5 badges on it, and 3D print ELDORADO (in brushed aluminium...yeah...Id spend the money!!!) to replace them with!!!

    And you can let go of the blindness. There were reports months ago regarding Mexico beefing up support at the southern border and were keeping more folks back. Detentions were up months ago as well. Don’t get sour at everyone else just because you were fooled by the man behind the curtain. Remember. The truth isn’t the truth. From your favorite source of news. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.foxnews.com/world/mexico-says-migrant-detentions-up-79-in-april.amp

    This engine is for 3400 lb cars with transverse engine and awd. Limited to 4 models, A-class, GLA, GLA, and GLB. 0-60 times will probably be 4 seconds, not sure what they need more power than this for in a FWD application for compact cars. What does the competition have in this segment? Cadillac, Lexus, Acura, Audi all have turbo 4's that max out around 260 lb-ft maybe 290. Where is the 400 hp XT4? The 400 hp Lexus NX? The 400 hp BMW X1? Mercedes is a country mile ahead here.

    Agree that the Quad had it's problems, Yet it was loved for being a motor that could be turbo'd and pushed to over 1200hp / ft-lbs of torque. I give props as MB has built a small motor with high HP / torque numbers, yet the Torque is still below the HP and high in the RPM band. This means like a sewing machine engines you have to really rev it to get the performance out of it. GM on the other hand built plenty of small motors that could move without reeving the hell out of them.
