  1. 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.

    The only advantage the GM SUVs have over the Ford ones is powertrain choice. Definitely not looks.
  5. Explorer is also considerably bigger than Highlander and MDX, so there's that too.
  6. It's easy to say "why is it so hard" through a 2019-colored lens. Back when MFT/MLT was still in production, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay didn't exist.
  7. Well, sure, I predict that too. But... 1) I don't expect the transition to be seamless, and 2) Will they be bought to be kept open as a brand (like the PAG brands), or will whoever buys them raid their R&D for their own benefit and say to heck with the service centers?
  8. So, say Tesla goes under some time soon... What happens when current owners need that proprietary service?

    There are three V6 models. If the lawsuit doesn't specify which one.....

    2000 Mile Road Trip In A Tesla Model 3

    Tesla Model S (base w/AWD) is slightly heavier than BMW 740e Hybrid and Audi A8, despite being significantly smaller otherwise than either of those cars. Nissan Leaf weighs about the same as the upcoming Escape Hybrid, despite the latter being appreciably bigger. Electric motors and batteries are not inexpensive, and they definitely don't save as much weight as you're insinuating.

    Tesla is to Apple as everyone else is to... everyone else.

    Ford Drops 325HP Fusion Sport

    Or, even better, keep the V6 and turn it up a bit. 😎

    Cadillac puts "truck engine" in CT4-V

    To be fair, the Nautilus is pretty much a facelifted MKX. That aside, to your point, since the ATS was pretty much just refreshed into the CT4, are consumers supposed to believe that the same car went from a 3/C/A4 competitor to an A/A3 competitor based on an MCE? GM is really GM'ing themselves into a corner here...
