    2000 Mile Road Trip In A Tesla Model 3

    Tesla Model S (base w/AWD) is slightly heavier than BMW 740e Hybrid and Audi A8, despite being significantly smaller otherwise than either of those cars. Nissan Leaf weighs about the same as the upcoming Escape Hybrid, despite the latter being appreciably bigger. Electric motors and batteries are not inexpensive, and they definitely don't save as much weight as you're insinuating.

    Tesla is to Apple as everyone else is to... everyone else.

    Ford Drops 325HP Fusion Sport

    Or, even better, keep the V6 and turn it up a bit. 😎

    Cadillac puts "truck engine" in CT4-V

    To be fair, the Nautilus is pretty much a facelifted MKX. That aside, to your point, since the ATS was pretty much just refreshed into the CT4, are consumers supposed to believe that the same car went from a 3/C/A4 competitor to an A/A3 competitor based on an MCE? GM is really GM'ing themselves into a corner here...

    At this point, we should just start considering "this is GM" a reason in and of itself. 😄

    What was so wrong with Vsport that they had to get rid of it?

    Tesla drops a bomb

    Exactly. I fall under the millennial descriptor and I'm soon to be 36. I have a career too. Imagine that. 🤯

    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.

    Cadillac unveils new CT5 - the CTS replacement

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

    Cadillac unveils new CT5 - the CTS replacement

    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.

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