  1. Brands that have low volume and are not high margin. Although part of the cost savings is Stellantis can make three 4-cylinder engines in 1.3, 1.6 and 2.0 liter trims, and one 3 liter V6, along with 1 front drive transmission and 1 rear drive transmission. And with 4 engines and 2 transmissions they can source every Opel, Peugeot, Citroen, Chrysler, Dodge, Alfa, Jeep, etc. They can do the same mechanicals on all these cars and just put a different front clip on them, although that didn't work for GM.

  2. Well considering it’s a four door only (The 4Xe) and most of those pics show two door models, you should really reconsider the sheer idiocy of your comment. Again, FOUR DOORS!

  3. Again, for the deniers in the back, if you are looking at ANY Wrangler for its cargo carrying capacity, then you shouldn’t be looking at a Wrangler. Fortunately most people, with a lick of common sense, know what a Wrangler is for. Of course, most owners I know have done this with theirs because that’s part of the allure. And I (and you) don’t know whether I’m dumber than him or not. I just know I’m not dumb enough to expect cargo carrying abilities from a Jeep Wrangler. That’s why I said he was dumb for buying one of that was his criteria for ownership. Understand the difference bef

  4. Its not the story about your PDR guy I dont believe. If you care to know why Im nipping at your heels, Im willing to discuss it. But, you never seem to give me a back and forth conversation. Its only YOUR voice you wanna hear. So...the day you STOP answering back with laughy votes or laughy emogis or simply stop ignoring me or mocking me when I talk to you, this is alls you get. BTW...I thought you never cared about discussions. I thought you trolled because it was just amusement for you... So why do you care what I do with my, and I quote you, my supply and right to

  5. Then he was dumb for buying a Wrangler. A Wrangler has never been marketed for cargo room. On top of that nonsense you’re presenting, you said he had a two door. If you don’t see the problem with that where cargo capacity is concerned then maybe you just need to stop making up fake scenarios about people looking at Wranglers for their cargo carrying capability, all because Jeep now offers a partial electric model.

  6. Some might call them 'soulless generic bland disposable appliances', but I'm not sure they were ever that good.

  7. The vertical slots on each side of the grille is why I thought it was the '40. A couple other spotting from that trip---a black '62 Falcon convertible, no top, sitting in a yard along w/ a couple mid 60s Ford F-series pickups and a couple old 60s-70s IH fronted schoolbuses, and along I-77 in Canton spotted a classic car dealer w/ a yellow '56-57 Corvette on top of the building on a sign.

  9. Phone or computer; no. But a TV is no big deal; no moving parts and you never touch it physically (not that I know where, offhand, to buy a used TV). I bought a used freezer from my barber for $40 and it's been humming along in the garage for probably 6 years now. 'Technology changes' are immaterial; if the device you bought did what you needed it to when you bought it, it should continue to do those same functions for some years. You don't have new needs; you have marketing department conditioning.

  10. Of course that did not work for GM. Market share shrank by one percentage point for four decades from 1968 to 2008. "Make it cheaper, make it common" arguably ruined GM and all the brands underneath. That is why Oldsmobile and Pontiac are dead. If it wasn't for China, Buick would have died too. There simply is no way that Stellantis can pull this off without ending half their brands within three years. The question is simply: which brands will wither and die?

  11. Took my Jeep out yesterday on my first road trip in it of the year..drove almost 250 miles of freeway, small town and hilly backroad driving around E. Ohio....averaged 25.8 mpg. Not bad! Felt good to get out of the house for a few hours..hardest part of road tripping in pandemic times is finding a bathroom..

  12. No one, and I mean no one, buys a Wrangler for its cargo carrying capacity. That’s what the GC is for. Oh and yes, 800 lbs. heavier is “yikes” but it is also the most powerful model in the lineup.

  13. This would be yesterday's spotting for me, except I couldn't get a photo. It had the same grille and size of the lower photo, but it was a dark blue convertible. It was definitely a Catalina, per the badge. This is a Canadian ad and, yes, Pontiac Parisienne sounds cool. But so does Catalina if you've lived in SoCal. The French badging sure entrenched the Pontiac brand with (Eastern) Canada.

  14. It's cause you bought a truck form a Woman run company since you Hate her so much. Maybe you should go back to that Mexican or Fiat built Jeep you loved so much.

  15. * can't put this in spotting since it's a "lot" behind the 8 ball * Here I am, walking through Savannah's historical district, minding my business, and a toad decides to cross the road in front of me ... and then turn at the corner ... I might add that it was a "healthy" looking toad.

  17. Well, it’s not the first time you’ve taken a knee. Might want to invest in some knee pads. Funny thing is that in this “pro vs con” article on owning new Wrangler, cargo capacity isn’t even mentioned on the “cons” side of the argument. https://www.car-buying-strategies.com/Jeep/2019-Wrangler.html That’s also ironic coming from Mr. “no wants an EV” himself.

  18. If EV were so great, your "stupid eggs" comment would be moot. People would buy them. But they don't.

  20. Imagine the conversations in here if an ICE engine lost 40% of its capacity to function after 8 years or 100k miles, whichever came first. That is GM's guideline for "normal operation" on Bolt's battery warranty. And it's one of the better ones! So lame. And a potentially huge expense down the line, which points both fingers to the fact that EV are as throwaway as that Apple phone, but WAY, WAY more expensive. It used to be, auto companies were planning obsolescence on the basis of body styling, primarily. Then, yearly styling changes waned. Now, with the average age of vehicles

  21. 800 pounds HEAVIER than the normal version? What a joke, how is that even remotely a good idea in a Charger, which is already criticized for being heavy, or a Ram truck, where it would trade off hauling capacity? The Wrangler is already not the best when it comes to cargo capacity. For customers who value that in a wagon/SUV, the 4Xe is an awful choice.

  23. Sure, for first "owners" (no one wants to buy a car that will be obsolete in a year anymore) but what about the poor saps who fall victim as second owners?

  24. Cool, looks like they're already producing accessories for the 4Xe, since it has a paltry amount of LOCKABLE CARGO CAPACITY.

  25. Do you know how feminine this post sounds? You downvote every post I put up anymore. It's a bit much, like... stalky. I like Pontiac Firebirds from 1970-1973, and long walks on the beach at sunset, or hikes in the woods without a banjo soundtrack. Do you like steamed chicken and rice? I do. Call me!

  26. Our PDR guy has a Rubicon 2 door, the whole cargo area is taken up with wooden racks for his tools, etc. OLDS, my ankles are getting raw from all the nipping. You don't believe me about our PDR guy? Weird.

  27. He's not as dumb as you. He's the brother of the owner of our company. And he does a great job. You on the other hand have zero credibility. Paintless Dent Repair You can bet it WILL be mentioned in "cons" for the 4Xe by the ppl who will be conned into buying one.
