  1. The right knob is temperature and the left knob is for fan speed. You can orange lights on the left knob indicating the speed setting. Different trims may change though.
  2. Probably all of the above. Regardless if it’s a smaller engine with a turbo or a big block, if you use the power you will pay the penalty of poor MPG.

    RAM Multifunction Tailgate

    Won’t be long until that’s accurate.

    RAM Multifunction Tailgate

    Ram has their multifunction tailgate to compete with GMC’s integrated step. How long until Ford gets in the mix? I think the side swings option option is a great idea. I had this on my old Ridgeline and it was very helpful for grabbing things out near the front of the bed. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/02/06/ram-multifunction-tailgate-pickup-trucks-93vv7xy/#slide-7514089
  5. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/01/25/aaa-driver-assist-safety-systems-too-many-names/ They have a good point here. We need some standardization of names for safety features. Blind spot and auto braking have been around long enough that they are no longer catchy, unique features.
  6. https://leftlanenews.com/ford/mustang/2021-ford-mustang-hybrid-to-land-with-v8-power/ “Website AutoGuide uncovered the patent filing. It was filed by Ford in July 2017 but not published until January 2019. The filing outlines a "twin motor drive system for hybrid vehicle" made up of an internal combustion engine that spins the rear wheels, and a pair of electric motors each powering one of the front wheels via a reduction gearbox. This setup gives the Mustang all-wheel drive, a first in the nameplate's decades-long history.”

    Chinese Ford Taurus MK7 refreshed

    Not sure how to feel about Puma as a name for the U.S. Wonder if that will change?

    Short C crossover that’s been rumored?

    What!!, CT6 gets new life in US.

    They don’t need to hold up development. If they can keep a tight lid on it, then it doesn’t hurt their negotiating position.

    Platinum was for the folks who want all the bells, but a less aggressive look and suspension.

    For now. It will likely open up to other models in subsequent model years. See Fusion Hybrid and 10-speed In F-150.

    Wards '19 Best Engines

    The 5.0 most common issue seems to be coolant leaks at the hose connections. Other than that, they are reliable and don’t have a lot of warranty claims.

    Looks good outside. However it just lost a big advantage the old model had versus Highlander and Pilot. The rear cargo area floor no longer has a well, and is instead flat... much harder to store a stroller or bags of groceries behind the third row.

    2020 Explorer Spied

    Ugh, I hope it has cleaner details than that... reminds me of a Highlander.
  15. While the F-150 dropped the 3.7 as the base engine, it now has a 3.3L in its place.
