I have no clue how Ford and GM are finding “white space” between CUVs such as the Escape/Equinox and the Explorer/Traverse. The Edge/Blazer are in a redundant size class. The Blazer name and development dollars should have been spent on a Colorado based SUV.
I adjust my steering wheel probably every other drive. I adjust my side view mirrors (control access through the screen) every drive as I change between a highway position and a parking position. I adjust the climate control routinely even on cars that have automatic climate control due to things like the sun. There…
As long as the mounts are adjustable to fit a universal size they shouldn’t look dated. I would make them an accessory option and removable. As for Tesla’s large screen - I absolutely hate it. In fact it is one of my major gripes with the Model 3 and one of the primary reasons I would not buy the car - the other being…
One thing I found yesterday is that MINI offers a universal phone/tablet holder accessory that puts it just beyond the gauge cluster for navigation.
Literally for the same reason that liquid fueled powered trucks are superior to Li-Ion and Li-Polymer battery powered trucks - gasoline and diesel has far greater energy density then either hay or current battery tech.
Would you mind telling me what the range of an electric pickup towing an 8000 lb trailer is and how long it would take to complete a 500 mile trip with stops for charging.... Also 3 out of the four examples are prototypes and concepts, not production vehicles. I’m sure we will get there and see a an electric pickup,…
Before 1898 they were suffering under the Spanish. American influence on the Philipines has largely been very positive post WWII.
So you’re saying the Philipines were better off being raped, pillaged, and enslaved by the Japanese. Okay.
I think theres a saying that if something is wrong with someone’s body appearance or otherwise, and they cant do anything about it, it's best to keep your mouth shut. Hence, small dick to pickup or muscle car correlations are just old and played out.
The whole “compensating for something” joke is just wayyyyy over played out at this point. Let’s be honest, is it still enjoyable to make fun of people for a deformity that they cant do anything about?
That’s a Ton or miles for the year. The saving grace is that owners who do 50k per year generally do impeccable maintenance. Assuming this car passes a solid pre-buy and has maintenance records and good compression I think it’s a bargain.
Do we have to liberate Europe again??? Say what you will but the last guy we liberated Europe from at least had a vision of roads without speed limits....
Several manufacturers have placed the backup camera in the rear view mirror..
Exactly. My 2015 is nearing 80,000 miles, I average about 20 to 25k per year on it. Most of my driving was highway running from job to job. The truck was used for frequent supplies run getting the job setup. My usage has changed since I left the field but it still sees daily duty as I live on a cratered dirt road. I…
What’s wrong with the old LCD screens we used to have for radio. Give me a Bluetooth/USB/Aux-In button and call it a day. Better yet, if all these screens are looking tacked on - give me a place to lock in my phone, it’s got better navigation than any OEM system I’ve used.
I wouldn’t knock the Challenger for babying abilities. The backseat is really capacious. The whole kid in the car seat with a coupe can be a little bit of a pain, but the worst part only lasts a year (when they get heavy and you still have to but them in) and then they can climb in on their own leaving you just with…
They are still enjoyable to this day though, and the UConnect is one of the best in the business from an ease of use and functional perspective. Noone is taking these to a road course trying to set personal bests or win a time trials event. They are what they are and they still sell.
I know at least the FWD version went torsion beam this year, I was curious as to whether they used multi-link for the AWD version. Take the Golf for example, some versions use ML, others TB..
Does the AWD Mazda3 have torsion beam rear suspension or multi-link. When can we get the AWD version with a stick shift?
