  1. I understand what you're saying. I think that FCA would be wise to place this in the next segment up. Think about taking the Cadillac CT6 and placing it with the BMW 5 or E Class, Benz. Dimensionally, it belongs in the next segment up. In that arena, the CT6 shows up as a good value. FCA should be doing the same thing. I'm sure that this will not be as big as the Expedition or Large Yukon/Tahoe, but it sure isn't going to be as short as the current Grand Cherokee . Maybe it'll be the size of the new offerings by Hyundai and Kia, which as an Expedition EL owner, IMO are too small. We'll see.....
  2. How can the new Jeep play in the same segment when the additional row will add at least ten inches to the length.

    2020 Cadillac XT6

    I was told this two years ago by Cadillac Mgmt, at NAIAS Press Days, This was supposed to be the 7. I wouldn't hold my breath as something on the Traverse Platform would be too close to this and the standard sized Escalade. GM just doesn't roll like this. There's only one thing that may cause me to agree with you. The HP Rating for the XT6 is the same as the Acadia-310HP. That engine does 335 in the CT6 and Traverse. Maybe that's why they didn't tune the XT6 up. Maybe there will be a Traverse based 7, but I think that they're waiting too long to do it.
  4. Just 6 inches too short... This was supposed to be placed on the 120" WB, Traverse Platform (204" overall length). Instead, it's just an Acadia. Fail. Lost me as a buyer. I guess I'm going to look at the Traverse High Country or Red Line.

  6. Coo. Usually anything associated with "brick" is bad. I'll bet that the front end gets a tweak, prior to production. I hope that they build this. Thanks!
  7. Look. I had a 2013 and sold it to my Brother in Law as I bought a 740 IL. I still miss the thing. Furthermore, I swear that this thing is faster than over six seconds on the 0-60. It also is very happy with regular unleaded gas. The engine is SO SMOOTH. I am ticked that they dropped the transmission slapstick for that round dial selector. Yes, the interior is a bit cheap. My biggest gripe about this story lies in the price. It may have a "As Tested" price of around 50, BUT do they ever discount this thing. I'll bet that your actual cost is closer to 40.
  8. It would be nice to see a more youthful and athletic looking Avalon. Oh, yeah, it needs more than 275 HP. AWD would be a good idea as well.
  9. Happy Birthday jry!

  10. I talked to one of the Volt guys today at the NAIAS. Bank on it. Although there was a bit of the nudge nudge, wink wink stuff..... He was pretty excited to not talk about the final price but wanted to make sure i paid attention to the soon coming price announcement. My guess..... Write it down..... $32,000.00. I said to them that its probably time to get these on the road and beat the crap out of them and he said that is exactly what is going on. Keep your eyes peeled, you'll be seeing them on the road.
  11. That is great work. Isn't it suppose to be larger than the current model? I am not seeing it in the photos but they can be misleading.
  12. especially since they showed it for the first time over, what, 4 years ago in detroit?
  13. yup, old al in living in the 70's still. he is loyal to toyota now but nissan is the big dog in Nashville, aren't they?
