  1. A bit off topic, but long ago, a big box store found they could sell about 3-6% more of a product if it was priced $19.72 vs $19.99. I also think these hypermilers are number freaks, just as much as the enthusiasts in us would rather see 702HP over 698HP!
  2. Well, the percentage came from Ford at least, but he wasn't specific if it was highway, city, or combined. He may be low-balling it as well, and we could see better numbers once the formal testing is revealed.
  3. This is just their estimate.
  4. I really like the idea of a small wagon, but I just don't like the face of the Focus.
  5. Cool article on thedrive.com about a Mustang SSP still being used by Nebraska State Patrol. https://www.thedrive.com/news/28004/nebraska-state-patrols-1993-ford-mustang-ssp-is-still-out-there-nailing-speeders

    2020 Fusion Production Information

    It is still a great car, and sells well. The platform is paid for, and that makes it easier to make a profit. I would buy my 2013 again in a heartbeat. I do wonder what they plan for the manufacturing plant afterwards. Maybe by 2024, we will get a subcompact plug in CUV along the lines of the Puma they showed for ROW.
  7. I'm sure you could find a good swamp and miles of beaches for the Bronco.

    bought a new car yesterday

    Yeah, I'm big and getting old, yet it seems real easy getting in and out of my Fusion.
  9. The Fast Lane Trucks has a youtube video of their off road Ranger vs Gladiator.

    It is there to cause frustration while scraping ice off the windshield!

    Yes, they were there for those who would use their trucks on farms and ranches. If you had a full bed, a couple ranch hands could step up and hold on for a trip back to the barn. Cars had real running boards in the 30's. Think of the old gangster movies where several thugs would be standing on them with "tommy" guns.
  12. Autoblog has an article about the hybrid Bronco. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/05/09/2020-ford-bronco-hybrid/
  13. Just as you now have optional engine choices, you will likely have optional hybrid choices for some models. This is clearly not for someone who wants to give up gas and plug in a couple times a week. This is a performance enhancer. It wouldn't surprise me to see other engine/battery options depending on the customer they are targeting.
  14. Glad to see they are letting people know they are out...even if they may need to wait to get the model and color they want.

    Bigfoot sticker....Does that mean we're getting a monster truck!
