  1. I was thinking that an EV Traverse size as an alternative to a V6 powered version.
  2. I honestly have had a hit or miss with refurbished phones. I think one truly needs to do research as it is buyer beware on the phones. I tend to change phones every 4 years so I buy top of the line, in this case been staying with the Samsung Note, went with Note 3 and then Note 8. So yes, $1K is allot of money but when figured over 4 years or so it ends up being cheap for a reliable long term phone.
  3. This totally makes sense, plus we still only know of the Cadillac EV, with so many others coming, one does have to wonder what GM might be getting ready to show off at next years auto shows for new EVs.
  4. @ccap41 You can downvote me and that is fine, but I agree with @Drew Dowdell what about the CT5 outside of the Chassis that they are using makes it a Sports Sedan?
  5. I have to say that I really like the looks of this on the outside. Inside is what I expect for the class of auto. I really like the dash on this one. Did a good job putting in that large screen with the dash. Agree with @ccap41 that Hyundai is really on board with nailing it with their auto's in the last couple years. Excited to see what else they bring out this year.
  6. Very cool writeup, glad you found areas that you were excited by. I agree with lots of what you posted about the truck. Interesting as I hate the look of the Chevy, but love the look of the GMC. Found two locally that are nice, one has V6 and the other has V8. Surprised at the low price, but then I did just go in as crew cab. Good deals on new 2018 models. 2018 2WD V6 White Crewcab for $25,524 https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=487125825&zip=98043&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D98043%26listingTypes%3DNEW%26bodyStyleSubtypeCodes%3DFULLSIZE_CREW%2BCOMPACT_CREW%26sortBy%3DderivedpriceASC%26incremental%3Dall%26firstRecord%3D0%26marketExtension%3Don%26modelCodeList%3D15SIPU4WD%26makeCodeList%3DGMC%26searchRadius%3D50&listingTypes=NEW&numRecords=25&firstRecord=0&modelCodeList=15SIPU4WD&makeCodeList=GMC&searchRadius=50&makeCode1=GMC&modelCode1=15SIPU4WD&clickType=listing 2018 4x4 V8 Dark Slate Metallic for $35,981 https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=470160510&zip=98043&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D98043%26listingTypes%3DNEW%26bodyStyleSubtypeCodes%3DFULLSIZE_CREW%2BCOMPACT_CREW%26sortBy%3DderivedpriceASC%26incremental%3Dall%26firstRecord%3D0%26marketExtension%3Don%26modelCodeList%3D15SIPU4WD%26makeCodeList%3DGMC%26searchRadius%3D50&listingTypes=NEW&numRecords=25&firstRecord=0&modelCodeList=15SIPU4WD&makeCodeList=GMC&searchRadius=50&clickType=spotlight 2019 2WD V6 White Crewcab for $33,987 https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=504033583&zip=98043&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D98043%26listingTypes%3DNEW%26startYear%3D2019%26bodyStyleSubtypeCodes%3DFULLSIZE_CREW%2BCOMPACT_CREW%26sortBy%3DderivedpriceASC%26incremental%3Dall%26firstRecord%3D0%26marketExtension%3Don%26endYear%3D2019%26modelCodeList%3D15SIPU4WD%26makeCodeList%3DGMC%26searchRadius%3D50&listingTypes=NEW&startYear=2019&numRecords=25&firstRecord=0&endYear=2019&modelCodeList=15SIPU4WD&makeCodeList=GMC&searchRadius=50&makeCode1=GMC&modelCode1=15SIPU4WD&clickType=listing 2019 4x4 V8 Deep Mahogany Metallic $34,995 Has bed liner sprayed in. https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=500777528&zip=98043&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D98043%26listingTypes%3DNEW%26startYear%3D2019%26bodyStyleSubtypeCodes%3DFULLSIZE_CREW%2BCOMPACT_CREW%26sortBy%3DderivedpriceASC%26incremental%3Dall%26firstRecord%3D0%26marketExtension%3Don%26endYear%3D2019%26modelCodeList%3D15SIPU4WD%26makeCodeList%3DGMC%26searchRadius%3D50&listingTypes=NEW&startYear=2019&numRecords=25&firstRecord=0&endYear=2019&modelCodeList=15SIPU4WD&makeCodeList=GMC&searchRadius=50&makeCode1=GMC&modelCode1=15SIPU4WD&digitalRetail=true&clickType=listing That Brown Metallic in the 4x4 V8 above is sure pretty. It seems hard out here in the PNW to find one of those turbo 4 bangers.
  7. Just because something has the same chassis, a sport sedan it is not. Yes, outside of the V models, the CT5 is just a sedan. I feel this way about everything out there. Mercedes and BMW outside of the AMG or M series are just sedans.
  8. I see no mention that this is a SPORT sedan, just a sedan and for most sedan buyers, a couple seconds difference is not going to make that big of a difference to buyers. Let me know when the V-Sport shows up and then we can talk about that time again.
  9. There are some, a smooth flowing dash is what I like, but lately we seem to be in a retro mode of dashes in the auto industry or the coccoon dash where each person is isolated from the other front seat person with intruding plastic into your leg area. I am hoping with the push of EVs, we will see some new 21st century designs and move the segment forward. Holden had some very nices dashes for a while. I see no reason that the center storage unit between the front seats needs to connect to the dash and eat up leg room. I will say that this is better than others out there as the leg space eating center unit is smaller than others.
  10. Could easily see a interior refresh maybe next year as a model 2021 for 2020, otherwise I figure it will stay for the next 5 to 7 years and then on the new model get redone to match the family.
  11. Ya did not snap a pic with your phone? Interesting when you search for WWII Philippine trucks the stuff that comes up. I think the Japanese copied much from America.
  12. Exterior I like allot, very nice and clean and should do well in this category. Agree with Drew that the interior is very much 1950's spaceship retro. Yet with that I will disagree with the excellent write up above as I am not a fan of this dated dash with a 21st century iPad shoved in the center. To me this is a dated look with a forced 21st century tech piece shoved on it. @smk4565 Honestly, people who have never been in a Fusion or know anything about it will not even know that some of the lower plastic trim pieces might be from a Ford. Yet at this price point it is much better than the competition out there. Be it European, Asian or American, plastic on the lower trim area to take the beating of shoes is pretty much the norm here. Over all I think this will do very well and should help Lincoln on their road back to Luxury competition.
  13. In all my SUVs with the auto climate control, I have tested just that thought and barely got a 10th of MPG more driving with it off. Maybe due to the big V8 engines I have and the AWD system, turning off the AC auto climate control does not seem to make a difference. Even in my Daughters 99 Durango 4x4 with the 5.9L V8 on or off makes no real difference in how it consumes gas it would seem. I know in my parents Delta 98 Station wagon when we went to visit relatives in LA, we would turn off the AC going over the Grapvine into LA as it made a noticable difference on MPG plus over all power and I think this was a real issue on 70's and 80's auto's. Now with the big powerful engines and use of more electric assist parts, I do not see any difference on either a true 4x4 or AWD auto's.
