This isn’t an uncommon practice among truck makers - and automakers in general for “best-in-class” claims - and such claims are usually listed with a paragraph of fine print, along the lines of “single cab dual-rear wheel 2WD with #.## axle, long bed, base package and special Max Payload package” and such. Surprised… Read more
It’s probably designed for off-roading scenarios, like the Bronco’s Trail Turn Assist feature.
Electric Ranger makes more sense, as all the Maverick and platform mates are at a different plant area, and I suspect Ford is continuing their top-down strategy with introducing larger and more profitable modern (so not the Focus EV or other electric offerings from the last 120 years) EVs first (moreso the Lightning… Read more
If it makes you feel better, The Drive made their own social media post this week about that Jeep that was towed while in gear where the engine spun up to “50,000 rpm” and ripped itself apart. Motor Trend also shared a social media post about an article they did about the Honda Ridgeline’s bed-trunk thing from when… Read more
I was gonna say the Goose package has a panoramic sunroof that doesn't open. 😬
Maverick is very close in size to the Explorer Sport Trac, but obviously (or not so obviously unless they're parked side by side) the Sport Trac has a slightly taller cab and a smidge more ground clearance. It's a very functional size for a truck or really a 2-row passenger vehicle in general.
That is a lovely green, inside and out. And the wood trim *chef's kiss*
I also would like the Zune interface, or at least the Windows Phone/Mobile iteration of it (or maybe Groove). Best portable media player system I've yet used, and infotainment system makers could learn a lot from the clean, uncluttered UI and shallow learning curve. Actually surprised Microsoft didn't (or wasn't… Read more
Surprised no one mentioned that Volvo/Polestar is using this company for their LIDAR systems on upcoming models. They have a bump in the roof for the LIDAR sensor housing, hides pretty well with the black roof trend.
There’s a lot of merit to this, and I’ve been saying it for years, especially when the KL Cherokee and Juke came out. Folks reject things that look Neanderthalic (big heavy brow, thick eyebrows) and accept things that look traditionally “cherubic” (bright round cheeks and/or highlights below the eyes). Read more
Can't see the unfinished floor if there's gray bags there.
The SS-GT (orange 4-door sporty car) isn't bad. I'm concerned about the use of truck/SUV-spec Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-Seasons on a "sports car", though. 275/45R20 could be a sports car size, but not the right tread by a long shot.
Why make it worse?
IIRC USDM-specific Toyotas are designed in their California facility. Probably why they’ve gotten progressively uglier every generation.
