    twintornados reacted to piyushbund77 in Wolfspeed silicon carbide plant is open   
    Wolfspeed opened a new, $1 billion facility north of Utica on April 25, with the 200 mm silicon carbide chip plant expected to bring more than 600 jobs.
    The North Carolina-based company’s facility brings the promise of the Marcy Nanocenter site to fruition. A series of false starts were tied to the site prior to Wolfspeed’s arrival, with Texas Instruments and Austria-based AMS considering the site.
    Now, it’s full steam ahead at the silicon carbide facility, which will produce semiconductors found in modern automobiles

    twintornados reacted to Flying68 in 2023 Lincoln Corsair To Drop Optional 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost Engine   
    Between my sisters Escape with the 2.0 at 240hp/270lbft and my wifes MkC with the 2.3 at 285hp/305lbft, the MkC is much more responsive to the throttle.  I don't know how anyone could say that their isn't a difference.  I guess if all you do is baby it around the city or do nothing but drive the highway at constant speed, you won't know the difference, but I sure do.

    Here's a rendering I made for Top Gear Philippines. 
    A tribute to Ford's past high-performance utes and pickups.

    It doesn't "single out Ford dealers", it's the article from a Ford centric site that singles out Ford dealers. The proposed rule would apply to all dealers:  https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/news/press-releases/2022/06/ftc-proposes-rule-ban-junk-fees-bait-switch-tactics-plaguing-car-buyers

    All for it but the wording seems vague on what it would actually prohibit.
     
    My ideas are to force dealers to provide a signed buyers agreement showing the exact sale price and any fees.  Cap doc fees and make add-ons strictly optional where the buyer must opt in not opt out.

    Correct, if I remember correctly, one of the reasons Transit Connect was brought into the NA market was to help fill the gap left by Ranger in commercial sales.

    Maverick wasn't designed for towing much.  A small trailer really at best.  It's based on the Escape platform, so no amount of engine is going to handle it well on that platform.
     
    What you're describing is a Ranger.  Maverick is smaller than a Ridgeline.  Maverick isn't a mid-ized truck either.  It's a compact.  Santa Cruz you initially mentioned isn't doing 300HP either.  Ridgeline is only 280hp, so short of your wish for 300, and that's a true mid-sized.
     
    You're trying to put 8lbs of shit into a 5 lb bag.  Go up to a Ranger.

    I picked up my 2022 Bronco Black Diamond that I ordered from the other dealer in my row with the first dealer. It is exactly as I ordered and I will enjoy it. If @cyberdman is still here, thank you for the assist. Point of order was 12/31/21, built 4/19/22, delivered to Dealer 7/25/22 (My birthday). I am 100% pleased with the process, the dealer sold me the 2022 without any ADM's and even honored the original MSRP when I ordered it, they also gave me every penny I paid for my 2021 Bronco Black Diamond that I bought in January. Tomorrow, I will be putting my Black Diamond aluminum rims on it and a few other small doo dads I picked up along the way.
