    Baby Bronco spotted testing

    I was told we would be seeing prototypes out and about by labor day... obviously things are a bit further ahead.

    You'll like it.

    It's an emoji.

    This isn't greenlit yet, but it recently moved forward.
  7. The look isn't exactly right - but AFAIK *this* is the next Fusion.

    GM urges patience as Silverado falls to No. 3

    As many times as I see them, like here behind the drive thru last night, I just cannot accept that this front clip made it out of the studio. I'd guess that the interior is turning off more sales than the exterior, but holy smokes these things break so many objective categories of sound design.

    New Escape

    They're splitting the segment. Escape covers the "cute" side, Scout covers the "masculine" side. I think it's going to work.
  10. From a design perspective, it looks like one group of people designed the front 2/3rds of the car, and a different group of people designed the back 1/3... and they weren't allowed to talk to each other. A pleasing mid-engine profile will carry your eye from the front corner in a single arc up towards the rear, with just enough massing beneath the rear 1/3 to anchor the flow. On this Vette (assuming this is, in fact, it), the winglet on the door forces the low massing to start too early and too far forward, leaving a huge slab of "oh shit what do we do here" as the profile terminates into the rear bumper. A rear spoiler that, design-wise, only makes sense with cues as seen from the direct rear view adds to the visual mess of the profile. Seriously: Cover up the back 1/3 of the car with your hand and it looks like it could be a really nice design. Now cover up the front 2/3 and again, the design looks promising. They failed - miserably - at scaling and marrying the thematic designs of the car together.
  11. From the few insiders I know at the General... that's more or less it. NO sense of scale or elemental purpose. Wellburn certainly left his mark...

    Ram TRX testing

    Sounds to me like justifying the car he could afford over the car he wanted...

    RAM June Sales

    I'm interested to see how this levels out... Ram's growth has been gradual and steady for several years now. Assuming that GM can react somewhat quickly with a new interior and front/rear end mods in the next 2 model years, so much damage will already have been done. There is plenty of inventory out there, especially of volume models, and the incentives in place for these all-new trucks tell the story. GM's excuse is deflating.

    Ford reports 2nd quarter 2019 sales

    They're not talking about it, but they've noticed. It's already been given one stay of execution.
