Get em while supplies last. Could we get a ttv6 Impala for a replacement or an Alpha surprise?.

So what's the over/under on how long it will take GM to repeat this fiasco for the 3rd time?

 

I'll take 2 years.

Well, there was a four year gap between the G8 and the SS, so, maybe another 4 years?

But only 2 years between the GTO and the G8.

 

Maybe they'll bring back Pontiac along with it.

Oooh. Here's an idea:

 

They can bring back Pontiac as their "Tesla fighter", and move the division's HQ to Santa Clara, and hire a bunch of people who commute to work on unicycles, and then they could come up with a Pontiac subscription plan where you get a fresh Pontiac on your doorstep each morning wrapped in paper, and they could use the word 'curated' a lot.

Your view of cars is rather one-dimensional.

Actually we'll make it simple and just do the top 2.   And they're both 2017 models.

Illinois State Police went with the Caprice. That's got to suck. It will be interesting to see what Ford does to maintain cominality when it replaces the PI/U

If they didn't see this coming, shame on them.

 

I'm sure Ford will make sure the equipment can be transferred.   I thought they did that with the current one vs. the CV?

Yeah, it was pretty obvious that eventually the Caprice would be abandoned........wait a minute.....there's not going to be a Caprice Classic Limited for 3 years?

 

Correct, Ford made sure the equipment could be transferred from the CV to the PI and PIU.

Some white flag, especially  when you can see TTV6 options  in all  models except MKC...

 

or do you want to count that tiny group of V Series buyers as wiping the floor with Lincoln?

NJ State Police went with the Caprice also last year IIRC and I haven't seen anything else, but my travels on the state highways is nil as of late. My local PD has a mixed fleet of PIUs and Caprice (seems like its 80/20 for the split) and a smattering of CVPIs I see at times, but they might be aux or special police units.

Where were all the car guys who "swore up and down that they would buy a RWD AUS car", if offered? Ford was smart to not waste money trying to sell Falcons here.

 

IL State police run Tauruses on Chicago land highways, Caprices are mainly in rural areas. Once parts supply gets more expensive for the orphaned AUS cars, they will get auctioned off.

I never see state police Taurus'. Do you consider 55 rural? The Ryan? I only see Caprice.
