  1. Average people can't afford a $50,000 to $100,000 F-150 Lightning, but apparently average customers can. Average people will be stuck buying 10 year old Dodge Calibers with 120,000 miles at CarMax for $12,000.
  2. You're not the only one who believes the spokesman. https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/don-t-get-your-hopes-up-next-gen-dodge-charger-challenger-are-electric-only/ar-AA108EKo?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=6c9b5e43148a435fabecdbd1e40f0f94#comments
  3. Unfortunately, I provided a bad article. AGR's article refutes the Motor Trend rumor. The next Charger and Challenger will be electric only, on the authority of a Dodge spokesman. It appears that the rumors of the plug in hybrid version of turbo four or the Hurricane turbo inline six going into the vehicles are also false.
  4. Hyundai has already announced plans to discontinue Accent and Sonata. It is expected Kia will discontinue its versions of these models also, though no announcement has been made. I do expect Toyota and Honda to keep selling ICE (though probably hybrid) versions of Corolla, Camry, Civic, and Accord for many years to come.
  5. I also vividly remember GM's X/J/A/C/N/H/E/K/L/W FWD programs of the 80's and the end result. Adam on the You Tube Rare Classic Car channel commented on how successful the FWD C/H program was, and I provided some sales statistics to show the opposite was true, though he never admits a mistake.
  6. Cheapest Equinox at my local Chevrolet dealer is $41,105. Cheapest TrailBlazer is $30,000. I have a hard time seeing the Equinox EV selling for $30,000.
  7. Most Ecosport customers could never afford a hybrid Puma.
  8. Not too helpful when the transportation using less oil is unaffordable for 80 to 90 percent of the public.
  9. I like jpd80's idea of a Maverick utility that could replace the Escape and may even be called Escape. Boxy styling, but a bit larger than Bronco Sport with the Maverick's powertrain, shared body components, and FWD standard. I think Ford customers prefer traditional Ford styling.

    Edge beyond 2022

    I agree with your sentiment but suspect the mandates are here to stay, despite the consequences for most of us.
  11. Those cars failed, not because they were called Cutlass, but because they were uncompetitive, inadequately developed vehicles with unrefined and unreliable components rushed into production to meet CAFE and because of GM hubris trying to dominate the market, imploding with the $7 billion W body boondoggle. .

    Edge beyond 2022

    I hated to see Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis and Focus wagon dropped, but Ford doesn't owe it to me to build cars with inadequate return on investment, and I will adjust to what is available and affordable if/when I buy again
  13. Borg posted this on GMI. Michael Martinez on Twitter: "Farley on future of ICE products: "We're going to have passion products...we're not going to have commodity products like Edges & Escapes." We know Edge will soon be discontinued. Wonder if this means an impending end to Escape as well? https://t.co/tBo5wm3BPh" / Twitter He speculates no Escape EV and that Mach E will be entry level EV.

    Ford Mondeo released

    Cadillac's Alpha platform RWD sport sedans have been flops, and I would prefer Ford not bother with this declining segment in North America. It will be interesting to see how Dodge Charger does when the new model with electrification debuts in two years
