  1. What about running lights?
  2. I'm talking about smaller cars/products, not Explorers specifically. But I get your point.
  3. Oh I'm not disagreeing. I'm just saying the competition costs the same.
  4. The only question/concern is - do those cheaper products truly act as "gateway" cars (models that get someone in the brand, and they move upwards in the lineup as they get older/have more to spend), or not? By skipping out on cheaper offerings, do companies miss out on that stair stepping? I know they'll still have lower-priced crossovers to help this, but only time will tell.

    Puma ST being developed?

    Neat, but we probably won't get it.

    Rivian R1T electric pickup

    They definitely have some neat ideas. It'll be interesting to see how the company does.

    Chevy Bolt "EUV" (crossover) Spied

    Because it's very similar to Bolt in sizing, and Bolt isn't doing that great. People want a stylish vehicle/electric, not an econobox.
  8. 60 sounds high, but the competition is in the same or more price range. The question will be what the PHEV adds to it though.
  9. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/05/17/chevy-bolt-euv-electric-crossover-spy-photos/ Another ho-hum econobox doomed to fail.
  10. Yup, Lincoln also showed pics of the PHEV with the charge port upon Corsair's reveal, but didn't show it. I think those pics have also been taken down since then.
  11. I wonder if Aviator's will be the same power for the electric motor?
  12. But that's just it - customers will still demand efficient vehicles. I don't suddenly want to pay more for gas/fill up my car twice as often because some government regulation was relaxed. Eh, it's California. I don't put anything crazy past you guys/them haha. Yeah, you're just transferring pollution from city centers to wherever the power plant is. That said, I get the argument that you can then use a cleaner source to generate that power, but we're not there yet, and the electrical grid/infrastructure will not support all of the US' vehicles being electric, which is another factor to consider.
  13. It's not about moving backward or forward. It's the "I want B, so lets ban A and force everyone to have B now" mentality that people have a problem with. Let the market transition to electrics if that's indeed the future. Don't ban 98% of cars on the road with a snap of the finger because.
  14. Just one more reason for people to flee the state.
  15. https://shop.lincoln.com/lab/corsair/#/select/Config[|Lincoln|Corsair|2020|1|1.|......RET.STD.] It's still glitchy/some photos are inaccurate (interior colors aren't working), but still gives a good idea of pricing/options. It starts at $35,945 (MKC starts at $33,995). Reserve starts at $42,630. The biggest single item cost is Reserve II for $11,540, but adds: Elements Package Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ Plus Package Perfect Position Seats (24 Way) Adaptive Suspension Requires 2.3L Turbocharged I-4 Engine and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Pricing tops out near $60k with all the options checked.
