    I would love it if GM had a conquest rate of 66% on ANY of their vehicles; ideally all GM vehicles would have such a high conquest percentage. Lincoln seems to be doing some really good things with the new Navigator.

    Interesting you say that. We saw a Telluride at the mall last night and I was pointing it out, saying it was on our shopping list. And my partner said, "But it's a Kia, I didn't think we liked those". I said, "We do now". I got an eye roll.

    While the first quarter Mustang sales were down, Ford still was able to sell almost 17k of these sport coupes. MB sold only slightly over 15k GLC crossovers. When the product is good, it sells.

    Love how you try to flip the number to bash yet another domestic brand. Meanwhile 66% of their buyers are coming from elsewhere like your local Mercedes, BMW, or Cadillac dealership.

    Went back out to another waterfall this afternoon, Great Falls of Tinkers Creek in Bedford. Several waterfalls are within 20-30 minutes of home. Stopped at Tinkers Creek Tavern for a Lieneklugel and a pretzel on the way home..

    You just like to pick on FCA. They sell more Jeeps than Volkswagen and Audi combined. They sell more than all of Hyundai. They sell more than all of Kia. They're moving a lot of metal. Jeep alone sells about 50% of the entire Toyota brand.

    I spotted this 2019 Colorado Z71 this morning, in the parking lot at my favorite walking trail. Lo and behold, the keys just happened to be in my pocket. So... I brought it home.

    "The largest tech add is Lincoln Co-Pilot360 which includes, auto high-beam headlamps, blind spot detection, lane-keeping system with driver alert, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, dynamic brake support, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and rear-view camera washer. " That stuff wasn't standard before? Also why isn't the back up camera retractable so it only comes out in reverse, thus isn't an eye sore when not in reverse and also can't get dirty, thus doesn't need water sprayed over it and the back of the vehicle leaving a washer fluid trail running down the bumper. Side note, I think the Black Label Navigator should be a 4 seater with lay flat seats, refrigerator, folding tables, power shades over all rear windows and a full glass roof with electrochromatic dimming and a blackout power retract suede headliner .

    The prices are out of control. High volume sales need realistic prices. Cars and truck are getting to the point where a 10 year note is needed just to make them affordable. That falls into the home mortgage space.

    I wonder how Caddy execs feel about their products (rightfully) being compared to KIA's. Has to sting a bit, I imagine.

    Thank you! This is a tale re-told over and over in the auto industry. The American auto companies refuse to admit when they flub something. Take Taurus - best selling car in America 92-96. New Taurus comes out and it's a styling dud. What does Ford do? Let it rot on the vine for 10 years (with a mild makeover somewhere in between). Compare that story with the ill conceived Honda Civic in 2012. Developed during the financial crisis of the 08-10 era - this was a styling and content disaster. Super cheap. Honda started making changes to it the second model year and even truncated the generation as a whole for a whole-new Civic in 2015 for MY 2016. GM should just admit that they were wrong with the direction of Camaro styling and re-think it in a more appealing way. Also, lower the pricing or offer more believable base trims. I sometimes wonder if they purposely jack up V8 pricing simply to bias their CAFE numbers (Higher price, lower sales - and thus a lower hit on corporate fuel economy, but more per unit profit - good for wall st short term investors)

    I imagine they could price the Corvette at $25,000 and most Porsche owners and no Ferrari owners are not going to buy one. To them it is about owning a Ferrari, not about performance per dollar. Corvette is trying to get the top end Camaro buyers for when that car dies, tempt people to spend a little more for a Vette rather than buy a Supra, or Mustang. Maybe try to steal some M4 or Audi TT buyers since TT is getting killed.

    That's.... not how it happened at all. There was an internal design competition going on for the sedan. One guy/gal sketched up a coupe on a whim. Ed Welburn saw the sketch and said to the artist to see him about it later. Eventually it was clay modeled (or whatever the current technology is today) and sent up for approval. It wasn't even in the plans to make a coupe at first. Welburn himself told me this story. The net result is a polarizing one... people either love the coupe (like me) or hate it (like you), but it's much better to have a polarizing reaction than a "meh" one which is the reception the ATS Coupe got.

    Yup although surely he wasn’t talking about Daimler. They can do anything, except build and market their own pick up, of course. Corrected for fat thumbs on the phone.

    Here's my traditional new vehicle intro photo, at Lancaster County Park's covered bridge. It's so good to be back in a vehicle that can get out of its own way (but I will defend my former Jeepiat always otherwise). At the walking trail parking lot this morning -

    We have a local truck accessory place, Car-Mic. "Everybody" who buys a new truck goes there immediately after leaving the dealership. I have ordered Husky floor liners from them. Next up is a tri-fold bed cover and Aeroskin hood protector. It does have the factory spray-in liner, which was a yuge consideration. With the Jeep in the garage and my downstairs living room renovation project finally done, seems like some space in the garage was stolen by "stuff". The truck fits, but I need to clean out the garage and haul some stuff to a final resting place, so it fits with more comfort. No Bedrugs or rubber bed mats this time, I got full factory bed protection. The 3.6L with 8 speed auto work together like peanut butter and jelly. Sooooo smooth. Above photo is not good quality. I will post a few more photos soon.

    30-HP (rated) Nichols & Shepard (Battle Creek MI) steam tractor moving 3-story building. Googling around & guesstimating the building size, it's very likely a minimum of 250,000 lbs, or 125 tons. Take your 35,000-limit 900 LB-FT modern diesel and go sit in the corner.

    Some things are worth saving even if it costs more than a new one. I have two Kirby vacuum cleaners from the 1970s (bought one, one was given to me later) that I rather repair and keep using instead of buying new. I don't care that I can get a new vacuum from target for $75 and it will cost me $75 dollars to service the Kirby. The Kirby will outlive me if I keep up on parts and such for it. Both of them pre-date me in the first place. They'll suck the nails out of the floorboards if you let them... no modern household vacuum can do that. On my A/C, I did replace my window units with central air and got a new furnace out of it, but my window units weren't that great at keeping the house comfortable and I had to run 3 of them at the same time just to make it tolerable. Central is so much better than window units.

    Ice build-up that starts near the inlet of the evaporator is usually a sign of a low refrigerant charge. Most modern units won't hold the charge as long due to corrosion/manufacturing issues. If the entire evaporator develops ice evenly across the core, maybe a temperature sensor needs to be repositioned. Antique refrigerators were designed to run efficiently because the cost of electricity was high. They're much more efficient than any modern frost-free design that runs a 500+ W heater for 10-20 minutes almost every day; some even use additional heaters to evaporate the collected condensate. The main advantage of a modern design is the improved insulation materials which permit more interior volume for a given footprint.

    Yes, that blue and tan is nice. I also love Lincoln's interesting interior colors. The blue is divine. Luxury cars could be more bespoke because luxury car buyers want to stand out. Lincoln gets a thumbs up for all of their newest interiors. Lincoln wants to be seen as a car for people who come from wealthy families for generations... where Cadillac comes across as too techy and sterile... unwarm.

    A few train of thoughts: - Maybe it's all a ruse... Just like the ATS was supposed to go away with the CT5 replacing CTS and ATS... Then all of sudden, a surprise announcement for the CT4. (too similar to the CT5, but whatever...) - GM is doing this to themselves. When they don't get the styling or quality right and sales sag - they blame the customers, and not themselves. The belt line is ridiculous on this car - very hard to see out of and makes it not pleasant to drive on a daily basis. The styling has gotten considerably more squinty and quite frankly ugly. They are doing the same thing with the Impala - they let it sit on the vine for years without updating it while the competition got tougher, and then blame sagging sales on customers wanting SUVs. - Why then did they make such a big deal about the Blazer having "Camaro styling cues" - if the Camaro is so bad for sales, then I don't know why they would borrow cues from it and slap it on an SUV. And yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it were re-born as yet another styling exercise 5 passenger SUV... *yawn* has the market been saturated with these enough already?? - As for EVs... Go ahead and do it - they will be surprised when they've dumped all this capital into these models and they only sell sub 100k quantities. This will be a disaster. This is America, and people like to drive without having to stop for 8 hours to charge up. For some reason, product planners at the auto companies (and investors) are thinking everyone lives in LA or NYC.

    I have to say, I tested out 9 vehicles that day and the Telluride is the one that made the biggest impression on me.

    Would love a saddle brown color that does not skew orange like other late model GM non-black or gray interiors. I really liked the Cinnamon and Black cloth interior on the Equinox, but of course GM discontinued it for 2020. They are so obsessed with offering the fewest, only top-selling color combos, to heck with customer choice anymore.
