    Ordered: 2020 Aviator

    Has Ford EVER had a problem-free launch? Problematic launches are to be expected from Ford now, and that's not a good thing.
  2. I saw a comment online somewhere saying that it looks like a concept from 2003. I agree... It has that retro futuristic look that was popular back then (New Beetle, PT Cruiser, Chevy SSR, etc.).
  3. The 2020 Dodge Journey sticks with the formula that's served it for its entire 11-year lifespan so far, which is to say nothing more than incremental changes will usher in the new year. The lineup shrinks by half, the SE and GT trims going away, leaving the SE Value and Crossroad trims. The end of the Journey GT means the end of the 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 for the Journey, the two remaining models powered by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque shifting through a four-speed automatic. The SE Value sits on 17-inch steelies with wheel covers and turns the front wheels only, the Crossroad rides on 19-inchers and offers all-wheel drive. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/09/08/2020-dodge-journey-overview/#slide-2166907

    August Sales?

    Not a bad month for Ford, all things considered. The loss of Focus volume alone can nearly explain the decline (and that's not even taking into account the Explorer, C-Max, and Taurus).

    2021MY Escape Facelift

    Interesting if true. The new front end makes it look almost overly cute, IMO.
  6. But they've been having such a GREAT past few years...

    Fiat 500 cancelled in US

    There were some co-branded Alfa/Maserati/Fiat dealerships back when FCA was pushing that combo, but I've seen some stand-alone Fiat dealerships as well.
  8. Does it actually black out the screen, or just reduce the glow? My parents' 2018 Durango has a "Screen Off" button, but it never really blacks out... it just glows a kind of soft black. I wish it actually turned off.

    Fiat 500 cancelled in US

    The Fiat brand as a whole should be cancelled in the U.S. This may be the first step.
  10. It may be an easier sell now that Lincoln has some compelling products and definitive future product plans. I could see why dealers would have been hesitant to make this move in the past 5 or so years.
  11. Positive equity is better than no equity. Ford could have chosen a completely new name that they never used before.
  12. What is the target market for this vehicle? Mustang enthusiasts looking for something a bit more practical? Tesla Model 3 owners? Former Focus/Fiesta ST/RS buyers?
  13. Originally known as Geoff.
  14. Will it be larger than the Jeep Renegade? I'm getting some Renegade vibes from the size.
  15. The Evos was an attractive concept, so perhaps there is still a bit of positive equity left in the name.
