    Cadillac unveils new CT5 - the CTS replacement

    I know about A3, Q3, and TT, as well as Q4 e-Tron. But A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q5, Q7, Q8, and R8 are not related to any VW models. Four out of thirteen models that share platforms does not a rebrand make. For the record, I'm completely in agreement that Lincoln is not simply a rebranded Ford and should not be considered such. Someone somewhere said that only the Zephyr deserved that criticism in recent years - and rightly so, IMO.

    This is true. Well, because this is objectively largely false. 🤔

    Toyota Tundra loses Consumer Reports recommendation

    I'll vouch for you, sir.

    Toyota Tundra loses Consumer Reports recommendation

    They absolutely did that. I used to buy CR between 2006 and 2008 and they recommended the all-new 2007 Tundra without hesitation "because of their reputation" but refused to recommend the all-new Silverado and Sierra because "they were too new." This was all within the same magazine, I should note. Our feelings here about GM aside, this was an egregious display of inconsistency and bias by the magazine. I haven't so much as picked up an issue off the shelf since, except to move it out of the way because it's blocking something else I want to read.

    I'm young enough for this to be the only Alpha 5 I acknowledge...

    At this point, it could be for the same reason that Nissan produces the Titan and Toyota builds the Tundra. As a concession/an offering to fans of their brands who want to stay loyal to the company. In GM's case, not just Cadillac but the whole umbrella.

    That's a pretty nice Maxima.

    Ford Taurus 2020 (CN)

    I hate that I skipped right over that line...

    Ford Taurus 2020 (CN)

    I can see why. It's apparent Ford only showed it in focus groups here as mere lip service. If they weren't already planning to kill it here in favor of more SUVs, they would have done a lot more with the, ahem, redesign.

    I found this line kinda humorous and sad... Translation: "When it was launched there, in the current generation - which could have happened in the US if not for SUVs"... Is Brazil throwing shade at us or just speaking truth? Or both?

    2020 Jaguar XE Revealed

    JMO, but the outgoing model looks better.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    It's gotten good reviews in isolation, but I haven't yet seen it compared favorably to the 3.3 in the Ford or the 3.6 in the Ram.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    At this point, offering the 2.3EB in the F150 would look like Ford was copying GM, and I think the Silverado actually hit the point of diminishing returns when it comes to engine downsizing in a fullsize pickup.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    Probably my least favorite part of this new model is the rear liftgate. It reminds me of a 4Runner or older Highlander. Otherwise, I'm on board. Looking forward to the ST specs... and, of course, pricing.
