      I think it is different than 2008 as FCA will have hybrid CUVs and trucks to sell when the inevitable surge in gas prices come back in a few years. If CUVs and trucks become frugal, where is the...

      Of course this will never happen, but it would be such a great publicity stunt. Do it la Renault Espace F1 with a mid-mounted Hellcat and RWD. I'm sure the engineers could make it work pretty fast...

      I certainly won't complain about a new awd wagon with manual. I might have to add it to the test drive list as my lease is up in June...

      Hope Mazda offers more colour choices in the coming years. Those yellow, blue and BRG look good!

      Found a few months old video on the Canadian market Alltrack. Other then the lengthy discussion on TDI which is probably moot by now, there other tidbits in there that are interesting. The one thing...

      That "stinkin" AWD would be very welcome in my neck of woods. This thing is on my short list for when my lease is up on the Scoobie in June. Hope manual will be available. 2.0l turbo would be great.

      I have the same car. As someone else mentioned, my first experience with CVT was a rental Dodge Caliber. I wanted to set it on fire. Horrible. The Forester XT is actually not that bad. Contrary to...

      I think the current gen Mazda 3 has RWD-ish proportions with that extra space between the front wheel well and the A-pillar, due to the large exhaust manifold.

      I was thinking the same thing. They will never get a behemoth like this to handle, but they could sure throw more power at it for straigh line acceleration. Works well for the G-Wagen. Why would it...

      I was not referring to wheel-mounted motors, but more something like the Merc SLS EV. Complex and costly, yes. Would that happen by 2020 in maintream vehicles? Unlikely. By 2030? Maybe. As you sort...
    11. Of course. Just saying this is a very popular...

      Of course. Just saying this is a very popular market and 1/2 ton trucks are huge, so some electrification would certainly be beneficial. Lots of people like their big V8 trucks to tow their boat on...

      PHEV F-150 would be pretty cool. Plenty of people use them as everyday cars, so a commute in full electric + hybrid when you need the extra power would be ideal, especially where I live where...
    13. What affordable cars today are available with a heated steering wheel?

      Googled it, but seems like those lists are not comprehensive. I knew about Kia, which offers most of its cars with heated steering wheels nowadays and it seems like some Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/Ram also...

      IDK. I will wait for official pictures. Front end looks a Chrysler product from 2005.

      I see you are in Ontario. There is this one on kijiji Ottawa for ~$300 if you want a parts car or a winter beater or something.

      I dug a bit deeper. Looks like it was both the weight and the winch issue and that the 5.0 was ruled out because of cost:...

      I wish Ram had bought that 5.0l and offer it as a ''base'' diesel engine in the 2500. It would have been perfect for the Power Wagon, which can't be optioned with the Cummins as it is too heavy. That...

      Just bought this for $600 a week ago from some old hippies:
