    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good lord, I hope the the crossover coupes get the axe. I have such an irrational hatred for those things.

    "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.

    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.

    Oh; no! Someone here said ( very recently) that once you get out of a segment, it’s nearly impossible to get back in it!

    Lincoln sales are up, best in 18 years. That means new customers are coming in.

    Actually as an enthusiast I am actually starting to feel good about Ford again. New Bronco...Lincoln lineup looks fantastic. Mustang and trucks are everything they should be...transit is a good product. I think Ford discovered its voice in a way that it hasn't had for 40 or 45 years. They earned every conquest sale they got IMHO.

    Well if you're a gym member and set foot in the locker room, you've already seen another guy's shortie antenna. But, I will post a photo if it will get past the censors.

    Or the are getting conquest buyers, far more likely given the increased sales.

    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.

    I don't know about 'half-assed', but it has a huge ass... I like the look, it doesn't follow the usual 2dr coupe that looks like a 4dr w/ two longer doors formula.

    Yep: ‘53-55. BTW: I love the CTS coupe. It’s like a road-bound UFO.

    Those are the competition : Ford <> Chevy <> GMC <> Dodge. They compete, and hard, against EACH OTHER. nissan / toyoyo are after-thoughts, market-wise. 2018 F-Series was 909,330.

    The Euro brands should be split off from the American brands. Only the American brands make any sort of money these days.

    Agreed. They are the most useless class of vehicles out there not named "Smart".

    They don't even market the Sprinter as a Freightliner anymore. They're not going to bring that back. No, they're all about putting it under the 3 pointed star. The money is just being cut. They're trying for $8b in savings. More cuts are coming. I wouldn't be surprised if the Crossover Coupes get the ax next. They sell in miserable numbers.

    I'm keeping a log on all of Lincoln's improvements here lately. Wanna know what I call it?

    I think the shortie measures up quite well, the perfect size. Confirmed today, radio reception is unchanged from factory.

    That interior is simply GREAT. And I appreciate the monochrome package. I LOVE the Silver Spruce color Ford has out now, however.

    Sure, you can say that but it’s a segment that’s untapped. Hyundai could make it into something that everyone else abandoned years ago. I think Australia Proved it was viable until Holden shut down. I’m ready for an El Camino SS equivalent. Chevy could build one off the Blazer and I’d buy it as my daily driver and let my Camaro 2SS spend more time in the garage.

    They should advertise it as a “Ute” or El Camino remake. Don’t try and sell it the the traditional truck buyers, that won’t work. I like this thing actually but then, I’m not much of a truck guy. I prefer sedans with two doors.

    Congrats, @ocnblu! I wish IL didn't require front license plates..Plate-less looks so much cleaner and better. My Escape had those as well. Somebody on a forum said it was to get air to the brakes because wheels and tires have grown so much. I don't know the accuracy of that but it made sense to me.

    14 years ago, when I was driving a AAA tow truck, I towed two Camrys on the same day for the very same thing. Both drivers somehow put Diesel into their gas tanks and naturally both cars shut down after about twenty feet. There are stupid people everywhere, is my point here.

    I’m referring to the fact that the ATS base price went up in 2019 (by $3K). Yes to this (but I am little Wagon biased)! There is a pearl white 3.6L for sale near me and it’s killing me that I can’t pull the trigger on it right now (still on medical leave for my shoulder). The V Wagon is a definite bucket list car for me. Maybe one day lol.

    You also wouldn't notice one passing you in the other direction. The only real difference is the badge on the trunk or hatch.

    Not surprised....it truly is on the way out. At some point gas prices will shoot up hard yet again-and that is why EV is going to pick up and bury diesel -or at least what is left. It’d the reason why the rest of the word is dumping diesel and going with smaller ICE and EV based cars....

    Where are all these angry, diesel-spraying women who are incapable of a simple vehicle refueling? Did we somehow slide back to the 1950s (or whenever it was when women were apparently utterly incapable)?
