    Jeep News: Why No Turbo-Four in the Jeep Gladiator?!

    An E-class has a 48 volt hybrid and 6 cylinder under the hood, if it fits there, I am sure it would fit in a Jeep. They have a turbo 4 in the Silverado, so how can they make it work and not overheat but Jeep can not?

    I am sure the GLE and X5 are more than up to the task. Just as the GLS at the end of the life cycle outclasses, out performance and outsells the Navigator. And the X7 will outsell the Navigator too.

    So what will it cost?
  5. So, Mustang GT and Aviator GT? I do give credit to Lincoln for trying here, with a rear drive chassis, big power and torque. This shows the guts that Cadillac, Acura and Lexus lack. Question is what will a Aviator GT cost? We've seen Kia or Hyundai/Genesis try tho sell an expensive vehicle, and no one showed up to buy it.

    But will Lincoln get it right?

    First Impressions: 2020 Mazda 3: Comments

    I thought the previous Mazda 3 had the best interior in segment, this looks even better. And I think the Mazda 6 has the best interior in the next segment up. These guys know what they are doing when it comes to cars. I hope everyone that used to buy a Ford, Chevy or FCA sedan heads over to Mazda because they have good product.

    I think it looks good from the back and side, although something about the front seems a bit off to me. It almost reminds me of a Kia. The inside looks nice in pictures, I wonder how the actual materials and build quality are. I also wonder how it will drive, because I feel like all these Lincolns at the end of the day are a Ford underneath and Fords don't drive very well.
  9. The R and Pro models should have more power, I don't know why they limit torque to 516, when this car could be 600 hp and 627 lb-ft like the S63, unless there is crazy wheel spin, but I think they could up the torque on those top models. It is cool though that they have a near race version of the car for the track enthusiasts. 7:04 Nurburgring time on the Pro, but maybe it could break the 7 minute barrier with more torque!

    Ford News: Will Ford Cut 25,000 Jobs? The Answer Is Murky

    Of course they are cutting jobs. If you don't have Fusion, Focus, Fiesta, Taurus in the line up, it isn't like everyone that worked on those cars is going to work on the Bronco. Plus they will cut the MKZ and Continental. And there is probably extra capacity in their SUV factories to absorb any increase in sales on that end for when the sedans are gone. They will make cuts here and in Europe. Ford and GM are shrinking companies.
  11. So Mercedes should sell the Unimog here? It has 8 forward gears and 8 reverse gears, what's this HD truck have, 6 forward, 1 reverse?
  12. Same way Tesla has stolen a ton of business away from the luxury sedan market. If Rivian can build that truck and not have a 1 year back log of orders and the production problems Tesla had, then I think they would do well.
  13. If Rivian can get off the ground they will steal a lot of pick up truck sales for sure. It is hard for a start up in the auto industry though. Really Toyota should just buy Rivian out and use that truck design with their manufacturing capability.
  14. Tesla needs to get into the pickup truck game and put these people in their place. I feel like the full size truck market, which is rather large, is just ignored by a lot of other companies.

    First Impressions: 2020 Hyundai Palisade: Comments

    I think this will do well. It looks better than a Traverse or Pilot or Explorer, appears to have a better interior and Hyundai usually prices pretty aggressive plus a big warranty. This will have a lot of appeal.
