You’re not wrong to wonder about that... but I will say the Lt1/2, in terms of reliability and long term cost of service will outperform most, if not all, cars in the same performance window. We will see about the DCT... a little nervous about that one.
Apparently something that provides me with things like “reason” and “the power of basic observation”.
Drive-throughs are dying a natural death, albeit too slowly for some do-gooder’s tastes. I don’t have a problem with people naturally choosing to eat wherever they like, I do not like cities banning things that are not objectively, undeniably horrible.
She seriously just wrote a whole article arguing “its a silly metric”.. noone at jalonick knew or thought to mention this history to her. This place is officially done.
Your Honda makes all that torque too!
Exactly. Do peak HP numbers matter that much for a truck with 400ft-lbs at 1500 RPM and a 10-speed auto? And I think the rear end gearing is 4.30? As long as the tranny can keep up, this thing will be great as a less expensive alternative to the diesel. And, obvs, it’s mostly intended for the commercial market where…
News flash to the newly initiated... truck motor not same as muscle/pony car motor (give me some latitude with the out-dated terms... you know what I mean, pedant).
Plus... low compression (relatively speaking) and big displacement means its going to take to boost like a duck to water!
Respectfully, the design evolution from c1 to c2 is not so dramatic as to constitute a new beginning. The lineage is clear and it goes back to the C1. To say the Corvette begins anywhere else seems like a click-bait headline... designed to piss off boomers (which I am not), as Raph admits... I don’t see how you can…
The Corvette has been a style icon from the beginning. Raphael is so wrong here it’s kinda unbelievable. His problem is he doesn’t understand the context of the time.. which is odd coming from him, since he seems to have a passable education on automotive history.
But... Have you looked at a Model 3? Also, what do you think the track-tuned suspension on the GT500 will net you compared to a Model 3? Yes, it’s a stop light nightmare for muscle cars... But that is about it. Take in on the highway race from a 60mph roll... or compare lap times. I don’t hate the Tesla but I don’t…
You do realize the 7.3 is the base engine and the 6.7 is the upgrade for the entire lineup of new F250s, right? I can see why they chose it over the diesel if the are trying to compete with another gas pickup at a lower price point...
You are wrong. See CBuss660R’s comment above.
It is, but it is about an $8K upgrade...
The purpose of an F250 is to be a good work truck first. So it has to tow and haul comfortably.
Fuel economy whilst towing/hauling.
Ah. well, yes the Redline version. That is not the base Hellcat though... so nuanced comparison still valid. If Ford comes out with a GT500 redline.... that’s kinda my point
if you think about the trq/liter, I guess it’s a totally valid expression. But mildly comical.
The Cobra Jet is not street legal. I’m talking about something comparable to the Demon, genius.
