I will hopefully get back to my very important opinions on Italian supercars shortly, but you know what would be even cooler? If Kinja took you to the comment for which you received a notification. Or at least go back to highlighting it somehow. While I appreciate the work that goes into writing these articles the Read more

When you see me rolling up in this, you know what’s about to happen. I’m about to open the door, and saunter out in my baggy track suit wearing house shoes. I’m here to watch the local co-eds play some volleyball while I eat a concession stand corn dog. Read more

Lowering EGTs shouldn’t be a bit issue for turbo output so long as the turbo is designed for the compressor side air volume. Cooling the air will cause the volume to go down and increase the density and also reduce the velocity of the exhaust gasses through the turbine. So there probably is some loss in energy Read more

Long lumber and kayaks...mostly kayaks. Ours are 12' and almost exclusively get thrown into our truck’s 6.5' bed, which is just barely large enough. That’s one of the main uses for our truck. Read more

LOL look at the biggest trunk measurements you can find (Probably the Avalon) and compare to Maverick bed dimensions.
I moved into my freshman dorm in a borrowed Sport Trac. Hauled the mini-Fridge and everything. The Maverick bed is plenty of cargo space and it’s not so much limited in cargo height.

Don’t forget to throw a coat or something over the 240,000-mile-long carbon nanotube line so that if it snaps it doesn’t fly off into somebody’s face.

I recall falling in love with the RX-Evolv concept and, upon seeing the RX-8 at the Detroit Auto Show, I fell for that, as well. I ended up leasing one at the end of college (while working for the dealership) and did 2 years of driving schools in it and a bunch of autocross. It was an amazing car. It was incredibly

If drywall/plywood is that big a part of your life you already own a fullsize or a work van so this is just a strawman.

The Maverick build and price is already up. $35k is essentially a fully loaded Lariat. An XLT with the turbo, XLT luxury package, and AWD is around $30k. I would expect that to be around the typical price.

Most of those comments are based on generalizations for people that aren’t going to dig into their particular car. To be fair, it’s pretty difficult to find that kind of thing out because no one is going to tell you and you have to dig into that data yourself.
