      What? The 1 mpg difference (2.7 4wd vs 3.5tt 4wd) in the city is way too small for any major differences to actually surface. There's at least as much of an impact on mpg if one guy has their AC on...

      THis is good to hear, as well as a good history lesson. However, the difference seems to be that this is the first time Cadillac has had a strong personality in a position of power. A lot of what...

      Most of those numbers don't strike me as anything terribly impressive as the 4wd version of the new truck is only one or two MPG better than the 2014 version, especially given how much Ford has been...

      So the engine braking on your car is immediate (or close enough) and noticeable when you let off the gas? If I let off the gas in 3rd at say 4500 rpms, the tach needle just sits there and the car...

      Nice is quite relative though, right? I drove a very well equipped '15 F150 when the traveling F150 roadshow came to a local dealer. Lots of tech and it rode quite well--for a truck. And I think...

      Added the text in bold, but yeah, this is exactly my thoughts. If the R offers 100% of what you both want and need, then I can see why for some people even talking about a camaro or mustang would be...

      Again, so what? They have different ways of coming to a similar result. I'm sorry that you're so close minded and rigid in your way of thinking. Both types of vehicles are performance cars, they...

      I have. ;)

      And it's exactly why I would cross shop an R with faster competition (at least from a price perspective). I'm not saying I would buy one, but it sounds like the car is a bit more than...

      For some people. And for others, like myself, it's just a really interesting car. I owned a mkV GTI, a crossfire (which is a 2 seater), and now a mustang. Similar to many other people, I buy what...

      You seem like a fanboy. The mkVI R also had more power and a different drivetrain than the mkVI GTI and yet it was almost universally panned as not much more engaging than the GTI. Secondly, I'm...

      :thumbdown:

      There should be more to the R than just practicality. If not, there's no point in moving up from the GTI. The theoretical benefit of the R is that it's fun to drive despite being...

      I have to say that I like the F type even more now that a manual is available. I'm a little disappointed, theoretically anyway, that the R isn't available with a manual. Having said that, it's not...

      I never understood this logic. Why wouldn't you? Pony cars and the R are designed, ultimately for the same thing---to have fun on the road. And the fact that modern pony cars are now fast in a...

      :laugh: Considering a lot guys with stock 11-14 Mustang GTs are running 12.7-12.8, it certainly wouldn't take much to equal the times of that modded R. It's cute though that you think 12.3 is...

      Have you lost your mind? The GT350 is not on the same chassis as the S197 GT500 (although the new car is very loosely based on the s197). The rear ends between the current S550 and S197 GTs are...

      $36k is about what I expected for this car. However, in this case, the pricing would have to be a lot more aggressive to get my wallet open--as well as a more base car. I'd probably pay $32k even...
