  1. Toyota somehow sold a new FJ as well last month.
  2. That's sure to get the attention of Nissan fans. I'm surprised they're able to.

    HOLY SHNIKES..TTAC Opinion on Tesla CT

    I think the Cybertruck won't appeal to the core of the truck market - it's going to appeal to more the casual truck buyer and/or someone that may not buy a truck/wants it to say they have a cybertruck.
  4. Not sure why I didn't post all my comments here, but here goes... I drove a Wildtrak soft top mannequin today as well. I drove up to see it because it was a Wildtrak - wanted to see the interior combo, drive it, etc. I loved it - it was awesome. I had seen a Big Bend and OBX before during the national tour, but this was my first time seeing nearly my complete build It was a Wildtrak with sasquatch (included), soft top, high package, and modular front bumper, and . Lux package is the only thing missing that I ordered. I'm about 6'0" and I found ingress/egress easy - I actually found the step unnecessary but also useful - meaning, I don't have to use it, but I know I'll use it sometimes, and will be handy for shorter passengers......as well as washing the roof. I thought it drove really well - got to drive it on surface streets and the highway. Tracked nicely, steered well, was composed on the highway. I found it quick - I put it in sport mode and thought it accelerated well - It's obviously not my Mustang, but it's much better than the Flex. Interior materials were good - I retain the same opinion I had before - they're good quality, though mostly "hard touch" except for a few major touch points like the arm rest and upper door panel/arm rest (which as others have mentioned falls perfectly to rest your arm on it). And frankly, it didn't bother me as much this time - could they be fancier? Sure, but they'll last. I also liked the interior color combo - I was never in the dislike camp for Wildtrak's black/tan pairing - but I liked it......the tan isn't as obviously tan as it might look in photos - it's more of a "gray" tan than your 90's tan interior - and not that dissimilar from what I have in my Flex currently (medium sandstone is what they called it in the Flex). I did find the soft top to be loud, especially on the highway. It was ok in the front row, but could hear a lot of noise behind me. My mom, who came along and sat in the back seat, said it was loud back there, and almost echo-y coming from the rear compartment. I've been told the hard top is a more "normal" vehicle experience/quieter. It's much louder than my Mustang's soft top......obviously a bigger area to cover in the Bronco. It was wet/raining out so didn't get a chance to pop the roof back. All in all, I'm glad I went and drove it. I just wish I had mine haha. And another comment after someone at 6g had asked more specifically about the noise: Wiltrak is sasquatch by default, so there was definite tire noise, but I could tell what that was, and I actually though that was pretty low compared to what I remember my dad's Raptor having initially years ago. It was more wind/exterior noise that I found to be loud. One thing to note, though, it was basically a test drive with the sales guy in the car/back seat, so there was no music on like you'd normally have to help drown out other noises. Numbers wise, my watch said around 68-70 db from the drivers seat, but not sure how accurate that actually is, and like I said before, the noise was definitely coming from the rear part of the cabin (obviously, but worth pointing out).
  5. The guy at the dealer I was at yesterday to drive the Bronco said they had a lot of orders/reservations for the Maverick. I think Ford has a hit on their hands.
  6. Got to drive a Wildtrak soft top dealer demo today. It was awesome. Drove very well, features were great. Had a guy ask about it on the drive. I wish I had mine I found the soft top (up) to be quite loud, especially on the highway. It's definitely much less insulated than my Mustang's soft top.
  7. That "FIRST EDITION" hood graphic is a bit much.

    Maverick 1st Edition Revealed

    I have the subforums off on view new because I don't need to see 800 posts about "anyone have this part?" and things like that.

    Maverick 1st Edition Revealed

    So why bother having a general section then? Let's move the Bronco thread to bronco. That Everest thread should be in an Everest forum. Traffic is already low/decreasing as is. splitting threads into more and more subsections doesn't seem like a good idea, but what do I know?

    I know.....I also think the Ranger design is skewing GMC looking.

    Only because it's still in the general section with a "moved" next to it and I can still click it.

    The lights make me kinda think GMC, but we'll see how it all comes together.

    Maverick 1st Edition Revealed

    Don't understand why. Sending it there to die? All threads could be buried in vehicle sub forums. Not sure why this one in particular should be moved. :shrug:
