  1. New car sales...EVs aren't a solution for everything either, esp when it comes to heavy duty trucks, but they can cover at least 80-90% of the light market.
  2. https://www.autoevolution.com/news/2025-ford-expedition-gets-rendered-based-on-latest-spy-images-puts-large-suvs-on-notice-234904.html
  3. Damn not even 500 miles on it lol

  6. There is so much of a perception problem with EVs and the general stupidity of social media/If it bleeds, it leads reporting headlines that make it sound like EVs are an absolute disaster, when its going to be slow and most likely a drawn out process that takes at least the next 10 years or so. I'm willing to bet that EVs will make up around 50% of the market by the end of the decade.
  7. https://jalopnik.com/toyota-finally-figured-out-why-its-twin-turbo-v6s-have-1851513186 So much for that bulletproof reliability
  8. Yeah I know that, I had a 86 Escort GT that was like that. I was looking at the Autoblog link and it looks red, but the photos in the original post def look more orangey
  9. I saw my first 2024 Ranger on the road about 2 weeks ago and I was behind it again last week.
  10. Don't think they wouldn't be able to
  11. But here lies the rub, MPG is a terrible way of measuring fuel economy because it doesn't linearly scale http://www.mpgillusion.com/p/what-is-mpg-illusion.html
  12. Its losing a decent amount of space with having that extremely sloped roofline at the back vs a typical 2 box vehicle.
  13. IMO its more about keeping investors happy then anything else. Its like the 20-30 MPG thing with Ford SUVs about 10-15 years ago. EVs have a perception problem and I think an active, but small minority of people bitching about them on social media, which may or may not be getting aided by bots/fake accounts from industries against them. There is just a lot of noise out there about this. I can see this being useful in some cases (larger vehicles that tow like the super duty) but not so much in 80-90% of other products.
  14. It boils down to sourcing of models-outside of China where would they source it from? The Kuga is too expensive for other markets I had a Venue for a rental car a few months back-it was spectacularly under impressive. it wasn't bad, but wasn't anything great either. Was just basic transportation.

  16. The 2023 has the 2.7L, but the 2024 does not. The Black Diamond and Heritage editions offer the 2.7L in 2024 still, which are at a similar price point.
  17. https://www.autoblog.com/2024/05/29/ford-bronco-sport-off-road-spy-photos-tremor-badlands/ The grill and headlights look slightly different to me too
  18. I think the rear end looks odd because of the graphical camouflage and then the watermark over it. I bet it looks better in bare sheetmetal.
  19. The wheels look ginormous on it...are they 22-24 inchers?

  21. Wow its been almost 10 years since he passed away Plus I bumped up that thread in the off topic lounge.
