  1. Yeah, but who's buying these days?
  2. RWD GM Cars: The Cadillac CTs and the Camaro and Corvette, and that's it. Too bad GM could (semi) corner the market in affordable RWD sedans since that segment is occupied by FCA and virtually no one else. I do agree that, trucks aside, GM is a little too all in on FWD appliances, whether they are sedans or CUVs. Sadly, Ford is following suit for the same reason: profits above all else.
  3. Better a KIA Telluride EV than a Soul EV. While there are plenty of Soul vehicles sold here, Americans prefer BIG over little (budget permitting). Will KIA please update the Sportage and Sorento?

    Hummer by GMC

    A Wrangler package and a Denali package. How GM of them. Then again, this is how Hummer should have been from Day One: basically a vehicle from GMC rather than its own separate brand.
  5. I do think that mass transit will still be useful since not all jobs can be work from home. At the same time, ridership will most likely stay down for a while. Same with new car sales.
  6. It may take another two or three years for NEW car sales to actually recover. Then again, used car bargains are still available. In general, few people actually need to buy a replacement vehicle these days.
  7. Tesla wishes that they had a car that sold as well as that Prius!
  8. They probably have to. Ideally the school year will be cancelled and everyone can return in the fall of 2021. (schools, not the new Genesis products).
  9. Sales of Tundras and Tacomas are also SAD compared to the domestics. Remember that too. BTW: Do modern Tacomas have that frame damage issue that 10-20 year old ones do?
  10. The JD Power APEAL survey, better spelled out: https://www.thedetroitbureau.com/2020/07/porsche-dodge-named-most-apeal-ing-brands-in-new-j-d-power-study/
  11. This one might be a lot better in explaining a lot of what has happened in the last 20 years or so. . . . . and why loyalty to Detroit is so thin. https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2020/07/j-d-power-says-drivers-still-loyal-to-subaru-lexus/
  12. Well, it is built in San Antonio Texas. At the same time, I see no reason to actually BUY a Tundra.
  13. Why would Nissan stray from a formula that has worked for them for the last 15 years or more? The Rogue is the carmaker's best seller. If it ain't broke, don't fix it (or fiddle with it). The improvements to the Rogue are welcome, while Nissan allows the Altima and especially the Maxima rot on the vine because of poor sales compared to CUVs. Besides, Datsun has not been sold here in the USA since 1983.
  14. Were the Australian utes unibody or body on frame? Unibodies only came out around 1940 or so.
  15. But will those trucks be affordable? Have you seen F150 prices these days?!
