      I wasn't thinking that you guys were thinking that it would be F-150 volumes. I was just saying that the decision is not as obvious as some of you guys might think. :beer:

      The circumstances surrounding the small pickups of decades ago are quite different than they are today... so you cannot compare as it isn't apples to apples.

      In do like the front fascia, too. The last gen's fascia had that bird beak schnoz that was horrible IMO.

      This will continue to sell well though.

      It seems downmarket, because well... it kind of is. The SRX... errr... XT5 is the Cadillac RX350, which is bread & butter CUV. It's supposed to please a WIIIIIIIIDE range of entry luxury buyers (i.e....

      I think they should have gotten out and started throwing punches! Autonomous Road Ragin'!!!

      It's like East Coast vs West Coast Autonomy!

      I would be cheering for East Coast Delphi, of course.

      That's not 'build a new plant and tool it" money, but it is significant Retool money. Or tooling up (additional processes) for another model.

      Things don't "disintegrate" because of the type of structure the product is based on. It does so because of the design/engineering... or lack thereof. You can make a frame of enough 2x4 studs that...

      Printing technology came about as a need for making rapid prototypes. I'm not sure what industry helped kick it off, but it has been around autos for at least 17-18 years. And it has advanced from...

      Yep. I get that. I just have yet to see printing application actually indicate anything revolutionary as it relates to auto manufacturing. The way so many ideas are presented, they try to make it...

      That's laughable considering I can't hardly rent a Malibu nor Cruze up here in Baltimore Washington International airport, because 75% of the choices are Hyundais and Kias. And it's been that way for...

      I'm with you. I like the Chevy bowtie, because it is very unique and classy at the same time. :thumbup:

      It's not a crest nor some company letter like 99.99999472% of them are. And most of them do...

      I never got into the NE regions... mainly because there wasn't any interesting places to see. The furthest NE I got was La Huasteca Potosina. By far my favorite region in Mexico. Beautiful camping!...
