  1. .32 is the same as the 1982 pontiac firebird. Yay for technology and progress!

  3. 2016 Buick Envision spotting

    We have two Envisions in stock one red and one beige. We are located in central iowa.
  4. Let's call a spade a spade. We have been here before, they were just called station wagons back then. Everybody had one. Sedans will come back in a few years.
  5. Did you even READ the article? I agree that you cannot easily weld aluminum to steel, so I get that. But they DID go back to the drawing board after finding the trucks NEEDED these extra protective bars. And since the single cab does not have these extra bars, I am curious how it compares to the single cab Dodge, Chevy, and Toyota...
  6. in that case why did they have to go back to the drawing board and add steel tubing? why not more aluminum? why need to add anything at all?
  7. "IIHS says it comes down to four protective steel bars that Ford installed on the SuperCrew that are left off the SuperCab. The tubular bars, welded to the frame and placed in the front wheel wells, also are missing from regular cab F-150s." So the correction was to do the same thing they did to the SuperCrew. They must have thought the smaller configurations would weigh enough less that they wouldn't be necessary. That's why they have these tests. Good thing they corrected it and brought the safety of not just the SCrew but of the smaller cabs up to a high standard. exactly. people keep crowing about how strong the aluminum Ford is, when really steel came to the rescue. what exactly IS military grade, anyhow?
  8. except Ford "corrects" poor crash performance with STEEL reinforcements. . . http://www.autonews.com/article/20150729/OEM11/150729843/new-test-shows-disparities-in-ford-f-150-crash-protection
  9. doesnt work for me, they forced the current design language onto the old body. not that the other face looks a lot better. . .
  10. Hyundai News:Hyundai To Spin Off Genesis Into Its Own Brand

    the logo makes me think someone looked at the current Chrysler logo for too long.
  11. so, then. did the license the BLS or the 9-3? i know they shared a platform, but this picture is of a mostly complete car...
  12. Honda News: Refresh: 2016 Honda Accord

    wow, how incredibly ugly. but it will sell because of the name. if that was a chevy badge in the grille you couldnt give it away.
  13. GMC News: GMC Refreshes the Sierra for 2016

    What are you talking about, the Terrain IS REFRESHED for 2016! It has a new face and tail lights, as well as some interior changes. It also received the 3.6L V6 powertrain back in 2013 to make it more competitive. GM is not sitting on the Equinox/Terrain as much as you think. you need to reread my post. we know it has a refresh for 2016, but I was saying it is too little too late, should have been done 3 years ago.
