    I suspect we'll see more of this. GM is well positioned here. VW is gaining ground. Obviously Tesla may also become a technology partner (IIRC, both Mercedes and Toyota were among investors in...

    Interesting to see how Tesla does now with direct competitors. The Porsche Taycan 4S seems to line up against the Model S and the Mustang MachE lines up against the Model Y.

    Initial reviews seems...

    This will test the theory that a light, small pickup will sell in large numbers. I tend to think it will. Young buyers needs something that can do everything, which is why my generation started out...

    I'm ok with this, but if they do it, I'm hoping they don't stick with the 'summer of '69' design. I think Gen 1, 5 and 6 is plenty! Time to do something new.

    I imagine this is driven by a couple of things. First, BMW wants to see how Brexit impacts its current manufacturing in the UK as outlined in the OP. I also imagine BMW wants to see how quickly the...

    Well, the Aviator plug-in has huge torque and some EV range. That might be interesting in something a little lighter (both from a performance and efficiency point of view). What's missing for Lincoln...
  7. Is the new Explorer the first vehicle on CD6?...

    Is the new Explorer the first vehicle on CD6? Seems like a pretty robust, flexible platform for larger sedans/coupes/crossovers. If Lincoln is to do sedans, I'm guessing it would focus on one larger,...

    The CT5 doesn't seem like much of an upgrade from the outgoing CTS. Personally, I think the CTS had a nicer design. Most of the reviews of the regular CT5 indicate it isn't the driver's car the CTS...

    The details on this will be very, very interesting. How long until this is viable? What are the legislative changes that need to happen to make this possible? Will it be geofenced in specific areas...

    It strikes me as odd that, in an age where trucks, CUVs and SUVs are selling so well, the GM does so little with its upmarket, truck/SUV/CUV-focused brand. If there is any brand that deserves some...

    Guessing this will be the real flagship for Genesis and that it'll sell really well. Like the front end.

    I've had a similar revelation, albeit at a much lower price bracket. I totally didn't get the CUV thing. Back in 2014, my folks traded a nice, mint Mazda3 for a Ford Escape -- FWD with the 2.0 turbo....

    Nice looking. Price seems too good to be true, but batteries are the biggest cost of an EV and battery prices continue to decline. I suspect there will come a point within the next decade where EVs...

    I'm intrigued by Mazda's approach -- a vehicle which could probably do the vast majority of daily driving in BEV mode, but with the option of a very small, rotary range extender for the few times per...

    I'd love a BEV like a Model3, but right now, that's a bit out of my price range. If I were buying today, these plug-ins would be very attractive. A 30 - 50 mile electric range would cover most of my...

    Nice that they are finding a way to really differentiate the Escalade from platform mates. Totally not my kind of vehicle, but with solid powertrains, the IRS and what looks like innovative...

    GM design really seems to like the high, slab sides and big, squeezed grill. To me, the proportions make the trucks look weirdly tall and narrow -- like they are on tip-toes. And, it makes the Camaro...

    So confusing! So, GM invested all this money into Omega, didn't enable it to support large CUVs and will kill the one car that's utilizing it? But, it did spend money on updating two cheaper sedans? ...

    I wonder if Mercedes will update the old engine or do a new V12 based on their new straight six. The latter might cost a bit more in terms of development, but then they two units would be based off...

    Forget the CTS-V. This seems like a step down from the CTS V-Sport, which had a 420 hp, twin turbo V6. See Road and Track's take, calling the car "criminally overlooked." I guess this is cheaper, but...

    This seems like a great idea, but in practice, nobody has seemed to get the pricing and the value right. To me, the real value would be in using GM's buying power to get great rates on other aspects...

    Haven't watched the launch, though I hear it was a giant mess. That said, I'm probably in the minority that thinks this is a cool, futuristic take on the classic pickup. Looks like what might happen...

    So, 'Mustang' becomes shorthand for buyers who value design and performance? I guess that makes some sense: commodity car buyers are shifting to Ford's CUV lineup -- that's the volume buyer. So, if...

    Agreed on GM, but they could turn that around quickly. GM probably has as much or more BEV engineering experience than anyone else. They've been working on this since the EV1 and that builds deep...

    I don't love that it's called a Mustang. I read somewhere that originally Ford looked to build an BEV off an existing platform, but couldn't meet the engineering goals they had. When they asked for...
