  1. I can't stop staring at it...what an abomination! I have to say, though - the effort is well-executed, even if I think the design itself is hideous.
  2. I'm biased, because I own one, but I think the complaints about the Escape's interior are exaggerated. It also helps that I have a 2007 Shelby GT500 - talk about garbage interior! The hard plastic all over the interior of that thing is dismal, and with its age now it's a rattling mess. I'll also take the cleaner, simpler lines, both inside and out, on the Escape to the overwrought styling of most of its peers.

    Genesis GV70

    I see that C pillar and I think two things:
  4. Shouldn't that be S550, not S197?

    Genesis G70

    I love the new Genesis grille, but the side profile is too derivative of the BMW 3 Series - just like the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Both are still gorgeous cars, though. I'd take the Genesis before a BMW or Alfa, primarily for price and reliability.

    Those poor explorers..

    This reminds me of an anecdote I read years ago (and still haven't been able to verify)... It was claimed that, sometime in the early 2010s, Ford lost more F-Series pickups to transportation accidents than Honda SOLD Ridgelines in a year. 😄

    What the heck happened?! Never mind - just watched the GIF. Ouch!

    Early Broncos On The Move

    I opened this expecting to find prototype Broncos or Bronco Sports, because I read "early" as "early builds." This was a pleasant surprise!
  9. The big one for us is leather seats (three dogs, and it's far easier to get dog hair off a leather seat than out of cloth seats!), and that still starts at Lariat. But your point is well-taken - the truck does seem to have more standard features than the previous generation, which always contributes to the increase in MSRP. Plus inflation, of course.
  10. https://shop.ford.com/build/f150/2021/#/select/ Some interesting price increases here. Spec'd out an equivalent 2021 to my wife's 2019, and the MSRP went from $64K to $73K, and only $2.5K of that is the PowerBoost powertrain cost. These trucks are getting mighty pricey!

    Production Week Scheduling Information

    Forgive my ignorance, but what does "No Scheduling" and "Cleanup Scheduling" mean? "No Scheduling" doesn't mean the plant isn't running, I presume - just that they're executing previously scheduled builds. Thanks for providing this interesting insight!
  12. As an engineer-turned-program-manager, my favorite quote is, "In order to complete a project, it is necessary to shoot all the engineers."

    My New Toy.

    Beautiful! Enjoy it!
  14. That does make sense. I'm curious to see over time if the GT500 gets its own higher rate separate from the base/GT Mustangs, since that's supposed to be a track-focused car as well.
  15. It was, especially since back in '07 the GT500 was the same cost as a GT, and according to the price quotes (and confirmed by users on Mustang6G), it's the same cost for a 2020 GT and GT500. So the GT350 is a major outlier here.
