Note that the Ford Coyote V8 now makes 460hp from just 5L, instead of the 6.2L the LT needs to make about the same level of power (though at lower RPMs). OHV engines typically need more displacement to make the same power. And that can be a huge disadvantage in some places that tax vehicles based on engine Read more

Sure, but I would bet the S65 has a broader more flat torque curve which leads to more useable power than the peak numbers would suggest.

I’ve driven decent cars. Unless you’re talking about things like road feel and handling dynamics (in which case stop shopping three row SUVs...) these do drive and ride nicely.

I mean, if this thing makes it to the interstate, everything short of a bicycle will be passing it. This does not sound like a good vehicle to eat hundreds or thousands of miles in.

That sounds great until you realize it’s still a 6000+ vehicle (after all the fluids and gear you need) with ~100 hp. I’d much rather a diesel pusher with a Cummins towing my sports car if I’m so inclined.

I can see a ban of non-commercial vehicles in cities. In suburbs and rural areas? Not a chance. Not to mention there will always be a great need to be able to transport animals. I doubt public transport will be so welcoming to Fido and Cujo.

The literal interpretation of “nobody needs a car” is never going to happen in the US. There is always going to be a market for vehicles to bring you, 6 people, the dog, and half your belongings across state lines for the weekend at grandma’s. I don’t care how ubiquitous trains get, the moment you bring something Read more

Their naming scheme makes sense though. A, C, E, S designates the size of vehicle, the number afterward is a(n admittedly made up) reference to the engine size. The “coupe” designation on GL- vehicles designates the sloping rear end. Their naming change simplified the naming scheme. Read more

They keep rolling out SUVs that are slightly different sizes but otherwise unremarkable compared to what they released 5 years ago. Read more

I like the Maxima, I don’t like the Altima. I recognize this is odd considering one looks like a smaller version of the other, but I think it has something to do with proportions. Where the Maxima looks premium and sporty, the Altima looks cheap and like its trying too hard.

Yes. While GM has its issues, they’ll typically run. Chrysler’s stuff was built poorly and had reliability issues. Read more

Maybe, but having a truck still means I’m more versatile.. If you have something that absolutely cannot get wet (like paper or electronics), or you need to pack the cargo area with a lot of light but long cargo (you don’t have a firewall and bedsides to contend with, so you gain an extra foot over a given length), a

I mean, I do. I’ve been telling my wife for years now that a van is the best (four wheeled) way to transport people and things. But there’s a place for trucks and it seems as if Jalopnik doesn’t recognize that, instead liking to believe they can haul a 30 foot camper with their brown diesel manual station wagon.

I know what fun driving is. I still sold my Corvette to buy a truck. Versatility you can use regularly is with more to me at this point than a car you can occasionally use to have fun. When I want occasional fun, I hook up a trailer, and pull my ATV somewhere.

Why not? There are few vehicles that will give you Toyota levels of reliability with respectable fuel economy, and most of the major convenience features wrapped up in a quiet and comfortable package. Space, fuel economy, features, and being invisible are the biggest drivers for this kind of vehicle. When you’re Read more
