It’s pointing out the obvious in a sarcastic way, not meant to be literally and sincerely informative. People come here to be entertained.

If you’re going to claim “fastest 4-door production car time” then why would a limited edition not be valid? While 300 is a relatively low number, that’s hardly a one off.

One thing you can rest easy knowing with these is the 4.0 is of AMC origin, and is one of the few things that Chrysler actually improved in 1991, and then the engine remained more or less gloriously unchanged from then until 2006.

Absolutely terrible news. All the best to her friends and family. We've lost one of the good ones today for sure.

That’s $1,000 before the Jeep leaves the showroom floor, not in all aftermarket accessories.

One of the laws I actually agree with in CA is using off road lights on the road is illegal. I’m reminded of how much I like that law when I drive through AZ regularly and am completely blinded by assholes driving around with their light bars blasting

Not to defend the Gladiator too much, but I know a guy who is a serious contractor who uses the shit out of his Ridgeline and loves it. Those things have about the same size bed, and it hauls his big toolbox and his gear nicely. Just because it isn’t an 8 foot bed doesn’t mean it’s only good for hauling a few bags of

That’s awesome! Love when stuff like that comes up. Like winning the lottery

Thank you! That’s right, forgot you had people here, I would have hit you up

Man, you wouldn’t believe how much of a struggle it can be to give people free stuff!

If they dropped safety equipment and things like sound deadening and nice materials in favor of light ones, then no one would buy them and the car would fail. With the choice between a creaky, loud and jarring interior in one, and a nice, refined interior on another, but weighs 200lbs more, 95% of new car buyers are

I think that’s smart. It’s funnier than I thought it would be. We only saw it in theater because my lady and I have a weird thing for the F&F movies, it’s become a thing for us.

It was incredibly stupid, but entertaining. The part that bugged me the most was all the CGI car stunts. The F&F franchise has always been pretty good about this in the past, so it was disappointing to see here.

Dude, I know they were turbo as well, the point is there is a lot more you can do to tune a turbo engine than NA motors. The new diesels run insane amounts of boost these days. Also, did you completely ignore my point about getting around emissions restrictions with DEF in diesel? It’s not like they couldn’t get more

Like I said on the diesels, being turbocharged and the major advancements coming from figuring out how to make power while staying within emissions regulations is why they were able to make such huge gains. It’s necessarily that they were able to make such crazy advancements in getting more power out of diesel fuel,

That’s kind of the thing though, you seem to be cherry picking numbers from different times and variants in the platforms history and combining them to fit your point. For instance, you quoted 475 peak torque and are implying that’s at 1200 RPM. However, the only version of the engine that I can see made its peak

Where are you getting your figures for the Vortec? As far as I can tell, the 8.1 that actually made it into the trucks never made the powers you’re quoting. That engine made big power in other applications, but not on the consumer truck market.
