  1. Also, when the guy is already talking about a strike for the next contract, it makes it hard to want to side with that guy.

    Chrysler Halcyon EV Concept

    The problem with it was they just graphed the concept's lights onto the current model and pretended it was cool. The funny thing is, they had that Airflow concept which looked nice, and basically ready for production, and scrapped it to make this concept.
  3. Chrysler Halcyon EV concept: Previewing a four-door future? - Autoblog This thing could be from anyone and you'd never know.
  4. I'd imagine they probably have data that says some high percentages that purchase "option package 1" also get "option package 2", so why not bundle them into one single package instead.
  5. Yeah, to me, the Hackett move always seemed like a knee-jerk stopgap move to "catch up" temporarily while Ford worked on its own in-house stuff.
  6. My problem is - today it's park assist, tomorrow (or rather also today on many models) it's the keypad, next it'll be heated seats, etc. and they'll continue to pull away features while not decreasing the price
  7. didn’t the last contract also promise several vehicles that never appeared?
  8. Evos is not the proper form to be an Edge and would fail as “Edge” - id guess we’ll see 50/50 conquests from sedans and edge, as there could be some overlap but edge is higher and more upright it looks better there than other photos
  9. yeah no kidding….though if you’ve seen people park around here they really could use the feature lol. my problem is taking away features once they’re there
  10. The system goes into perpendicular spaces now, IIRC. So it did both perpendicular AND parallel....until now.

    Kia Shows Refreshed K5 and Carnival

    I think that's what they're going for to avoid the minivan stigma.
  12. I understand that completely - I agree you don't want to show something too far out (unless a sort of design concept). I just don't see the point of announcing this "skunkworks" team.....that won't produce anything until 2-3 years from now? Why bother? It's just a "we're working on it!" announcement since they've screwed up/changed plans so much.
  13. 2025 Kia Carnival revealed with new hybrid powertrain option - Autoblog At the Chicago Auto Show, it revealed that the Carnival is getting a hybrid powertrain, helping it compete against the hybrid-only Toyota Sienna, and available plug-in hybrid in the Chrysler Pacifica. It's a familiar unit: the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder coupled with a 72-horsepower electric motor also found in the Kia Sportage and Sorento hybrids. It makes 242 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque between the engine and motor. The only transmission is a six-speed automatic, and like the standard V6 model, it just powers the front wheels. 2025 Kia K5 gets new look, more power, and better tech in Chicago - Autoblog
