    Caddy to show off XT6 at Detroit

    The Chi platform can only support transverse engine so 3.6 V6 is the most GM has to offer. 2.5 I4, 2.0 Turbo I4, 3.6 V6... pick your poison.

    According to ETIS, the build date was 8/26/11
  5. Hyundai is working on two different trucks, that's why some lazy websites are confused. Santa Cruz is based on Tucson, which means it is a compact... Most likely Santa Cruz will be the same size as Fiat Toro (based on Jeep Compass), Renault Oroch (based on Dacia Duster), and the upcoming VW Tarok (based on VW Tharu), and supposedly Ford Courier (based on TBD compact CUV). There is another Hyundai midsize truck project which will be the same size as Ridgeline but there is conflicting report whether it is based on the Santa Fe or a completely different body on frame design.
  6. This is not reliable but I've heard chatter among the dealers that these were to be custom modified 'on the side' rather than down the assembly line. I guess it would make some sense instead of creating new assembly processes for a limited run. If it's $100K, that's basically Black Label Navigator pricing, that would be way out of step for the car. If the doors are 6" Longer, they would definitely need e-closing motors in the hinges, otherwise you need a chauffeur to close them for you.
  7. I could envision a lot of hands getting smashed accidentally.
  8. I remember riding in my grandma's '67 T-Bird Town Landau with its suicide doors, and thinking how cool that car was. I damn near bought a '64 Continental at a junkyard about 20 years ago for $300 (the body was in incredibly good shape), but I had the thought of restoring Grandma's T-Bird, so I passed on it. Turned out that my uncle sold the T-Bird, so I should've bought the Conti...
  9. Change is rarely easy. But while one third of adults globally say it scares them, 86 percent say they believe hope drives change. View the full article

    Headrest Tablet Mount

    Have you tried ProClip? Best mount for devices - been using them for over 14 years. Never tried the headrest mounts. Not cheap, but well worth it. https://www.proclipusa.com/category/car-headrest-mounts Google for 10% off codes or sign up for 15-20% codes from time to time.

    New Mustang Supercar breaks cover

    I think those are for mounting instrumentation on for monitoring brake temps and such. But that wing? Hope it functions better than it looks.
  13. Does anyone know of a headrest mount that fits on the 18/19 Navigator seats? Since there are no headrest posts, all of the headrest mounts I found dont work.

    True, new letter from plant mgr. Says the 230 reduction includes skilled trades. Plus maybe 20 or 30 might get romeo posting. Still a big number to send over.
  15. 7 out of 10 consumers agreed that we should have a mandatory timeout from our devices So we believe we should be told when to dis-engage from our devices by some authority because we are not willing to do it on our own? If that is the attitude of the future then I am even more afraid! Let's give up our own self-control and be told what and when to do it.

    Dual Note Horn on ‘19 Edge?

    I’m extremely happy with my ‘19 Edge Titanium. Or was, until I blew the horn! El cheapo single note horn? Reminded me of my ‘81 Escort wagon. 🤢 Is this standard on ‘19 Edge, or Houston, do we have a problem? Thanks.

    So when n 200 people from vandyke come over, will sterling people have a place to go?
  21. Sorry twintornados, I understand that that you were merely quoting wiki so please don't take my comments personally Just looking at what's been achieved with C2 Focus, Escape should get significant weight reduction and space improvement, I like the idea of a compact truck if Ford can deliver it at the right price and mix of features and ability. Isn't it ironic that a few short years ago, the thought of a compact pick up or a compact dual cab pick up would have been laughed off the boards as something that could and arguably was already covered by Escape. Now diversity of product is coming back and hopefully customer interest follows
  22. Oh, definitely cooler, and a bit practical too. We were fortunate to have a Continental as a Ford lease car back in 1964. Being a kid, I was relegated to the back seat. The '64 Continental had a modest "B" pillar, so entry and egress was very easy. I recall that adults liked it too. Maybe someday I'll tell you how I almost tore the rear door off our Continental.
  23. That is true. I was thinking of having both people standing in between the doors and not having much room to close one door.

    It's usually accurate within a day or 2
  27. Wikipedia is inaccurate, all of those vehicles are C1, the platform has been around since 2003 and simply evolved to where it is now, the Chinese Escort is just based on an older parts set. Pre-CD4 the EUCD Mondeo, S-max and Galaxy were more closely aligned with the smaller C1 with shared power trains and electrical systems. What C2 does is put the band back together and give Ford a comprehensive FWD/AWD capable product envelope.
