    Minivan vs 3 row SUV - why are minivans looked down upon?

    The K5 situation is a little different. "Sedan" is much more widely used than the (I believe) British-only "saloon." From what I have experienced with the Sedona/Carnival, they've been positioning it as the "anti-minivan" since the last generation, and I guess to them this is the next logical step. Whether it's successful remains to be seen.

    Me, I see it as Kia standardizing everything across the board, just as how they're retiring the name "Sedona" in order to the global "Carnival."

    What we call minivans, much of the rest of the world calls MPVs.

    2022 Nissan Frontier

    It's the interior they should have had maybe 8 years ago, but considering they're just now getting away from the interior that looks like it came from over 15 years ago.....

    Cadillac Reveals CT4V/CT5V Blackwings

    295 in the CTSV, 315 in the GT500. Just read that the CT5 Blackwing has 305 in the rear (edit: right before rperez posted his figures)... apparently they might have learned something.

    This segment is about to get interesting again.

    Cadillac Reveals CT4V/CT5V Blackwings

    One of the complaints about the last CTS-V (at least in a Car and Driver comparo) was that it couldn't put all 640 horses down and thus got passed by heavier and less-powerful cars. It will be interesting to see if this car does a better job of it... but even still, without AWD Cadillac still isn't gonna catch ze Germans that it insists on chasing. Conversely, Mustang isn't in a segment where AWD is prevalent, so no issues there.

    Cadillac Reveals CT4V/CT5V Blackwings

    I like the specs, but not having AWD with all that power is a head-scratcher. Almost as much a head-scratcher as trying to claim that these model lines compete in a class below where they really do.

    2021 F150 First Drive

    The YouTube reviewers are also sharing their impressions. Redline Reviews drove both the King Ranch and the XLT, both with the Powerboost.

    Cadillac Won't Be Using the Blackwing V-8 Anymore

    Not according to GM themselves.

    2021 Cadillac Escalade Debuts

    I generally like Escalades, and this one isn't bad at all. I don't like the narrow horizontal headlights though on such a big vehicle though.
  12. So someone DID raise this issue during development. FWIW, I feel a little better knowing that not everyone in the building was in lock-step with the dry-clutch design.

    2021 Chevy Tahoe/Suburban

    I haven't driven any of the newer engines, but the 3.5EB does appear to be better on paper. Ford could easily offer the 2.7EB or the 5.0 as a lesser option in the Expy, at least. They just... don't.

    Hackett's remedy for sticker shock

    THAT'S thinking! Someone write Hackett and get him on this! At the house we moved into earlier this year, the garage only came with 1 remote. We drive 3 vehicles and routinely use the garage doors, so of course Homelink is a necessity for us.
