It will all be dependant on cobalt price...ev's are goin be profit makers (premium) until they hit mainstream which should please the atp crowd...hopefully ford can pull it off...ford not building its own batteries at the start is logical thought
Just got a new Aviator and I have mixed emotions. The Auto stop is a pain in the neck. Manual says if I take my foot off the brake, the engine will start. Not so for us.
Manual shows warning (Keep hand on wheel) showing on HUD. Not so for us.
When we accelerate from a stop it sounds like a a crotch rocket going through the gears. Very noisy.
Also, we hear a periodic ding when we are driving with no associated warning.
Also, a "clunk" when the car is just sitting and hadn't been driven in awhile.
Anyone else having these issues?
Well why has Porsche
just released a 718 GTS with a naturally asperated 4 liter six cylinder????
Maybe a modern revised 3.5 naturally asperated V6 is not a bad idea!
I could see about 345. HP and about 275 Lbs ft torque. (Port and direct injected)
With displacement on demand, we would run on 3 cylinders under light loads match or beat fuel economy of the 2.3 ecoboost.
