    2018 Mustang Ecoboost PP
  1. FWD Aviator? So that platform really does support both fwd and rwd. Lol
  2. Let’s agree to disagree. There are a number of roads where I need to either put the tires on the white line or cross the center line to avoid bad spots or potholes. Since the lane keeping system doesn’t like it when I do that, I keep it turned off. I also go through a few construction zones that the lane keeping system doesn’t like.

    Jaguar Land Rover record losses

    You mention that Ford mismanaged JLR on a regular basis. But the truth is that without Ford, JLR would have gone under. Did Ford make mistakes? Sure, but they bought a company that was a basket case and saved it.
  4. My Mustang (2018 A10 PP) was rated at 29 highway. The Performance Pack lower the EPA estimates. I’m averaging 25 mpg overall. I have a little more than 21,500 miles on it. The mileage is hand calculated. Akirby is getting excellent mileage in his F150.
  5. I’ve got a little over 21,000 miles on my 2018 Mustang Ecoboost (Premium Performance Pack A10). Lifetime average is 24.99. EPA ratings are 20/29. I’m pleased with those numbers.

    GM to Hire 400 more workers for c8 Corvette

    Let’s see, 40,000 sold in 2016. I suspect they had the same number of employees in 2016 as they did in 2018. If they need an extra 400 employees for the C8 (and it is not more labor intensive), I guess they’re expecting to sell 60,000. This is the only way the math works unless they had laid off about 400 employees since 2016.

    GM to Hire 400 more workers for c8 Corvette

    What is considered “high”? They sold less than 19,000 last year. If that doubles, it’s still less than 38,000. Do they really need two lines for that volume? Yearly sales volume hasn’t hit 41,000 in over 30 years. By the way, they sold a little over 40,000 in 2016. I don’t think they had two lines at that time, did they? If they need two lines for that kind of volume, it still sounds like the build process will be more labor intensive.

    If GM is hiring 400 more employees, it sounds like it is going to be much more labor intensive to manufacture.
  9. I’ve been in software development (coding) for over 30 years. Akirby is spot on in my opinion. AV’s will be a niche market for years.
  10. I read somewhere that the turbo locations and plumbing would have to be revised for the Mustang. So, it might not be a snap to drop it into the Mustang, but should not be a big effort either.
  11. I just saw my first new Chevy Silverado on the road two days ago. Overall, the truck looked pretty good. The front end, however, was a swing and a miss. One other point, I almost didn’t notice it. It doesn’t really stand out. I do see a lot of the new Rams though.
  12. You forgot to mention the Ranger. 😄 Its output is different than the Mustang or Explorer.

    This was also my understanding.
  14. Or talk to someone that owns an Ecoboost Mustang. Even in the “Normal” drive mode, there isn’t any lag.

    I thought the version with the water pump in the valley was only used in fwd vehicles. Am I wrong about that?
