I am by no means a market expert but I think given the coming downturn its prudent for Jag to solidify its core audience via ownership perks and service while also building a brand that emphasizes its non-conformity to current luxury brands. Read more

I think the Cherokee is suffering because they made the Compass too good... it looks like a baby Grand Cherokee.  The Cherokee’s face lift was a massive improvement but I think Jeep has too many models overlapping the same target buyers- Cherokee, Compass, Renegade.

I imagine that Jalopnik staffers are currently rolling around on the floor as they do not yet have a grave to turnover in.

While I’m sure brand recognition had some impact to its sales, the fact that almost every initial review had serious software issues was likely a bigger driver. If you’re reintroducing your vehicle to a major market, it needs to at least function for the reviews. Read more

Neutral: happy motorcyclist here who happens to *really like* e-motos for what they are. It’s a tangibly different experience than ICE riding, what with the instant torque, silent engine, and all the rest, that is very fun, and a large part of their appeal, i.e. if e-motos and ICE bikes rode exactly the same, there’d Read more

I dont know where to put this but I watched “6 Underground” with Ryan Reynolds (on Netflix) the other day and man that opening scene is 15+ minutes of car chases with an Alfa Gulia. Please stop watching the movie after that. But it was an awesome scene.
