      That's not a small truck. It's the size of a 1990s F-150. It's considerably wider and taller, and bulkier, than even a Tacoma. If you want that, just buy a Colorado - same size.

      The EVs I've driven pull like a train. Any speed, any RPM, you want it you got it. Silently. Quite an experience.

      Gas is going to go back up, but no. People who buy Teslas are buying Teslas. Gas could be $6 and fuel costs would be a rounding error in their monthly budget.

      If you're regularly moving loads of gravel, sand, or lumber, a small utility trailer is what you're looking for. Or a single cab Tacoma, which is not actually all that big. Muddy mountain bikes can...

      I think they could credibly challenge the Tacoma, Canyon/Colorado, and Frontier. That side of the market is a little friendlier to imports.

      Fullsizers....I really, really don't think so. Look...

      The Mountek nGroove Grip, on Amazon for $18. Yeah, you could spend three or four times that on a ProClip, or you could go with the thousands of crappy suction cup mounts, but I've had this in my car...

      You can, I actually test-drove one when I bought my '13. You could get it on a base model until the '15 MY.

      Let's just say it wasn't the kind of manual that stirs an enthusiast's heart. Pretty...

      Really? I hate the round, blobby kidneys. The thinner, wider, and more angular the better.

      The simplest and most obvious explanation woudl be.....blown head gaskets aren't actually that common.

      Wealthy Chinese buyers are not really particularly understated, and there's a lot of post-Boomer wealthy Americans who are not particularly understated either.

      This would dovetail with my post above as the China half of the strategy. China loves it some LWB, and making its answer to the LWB models you mentioned a standalone model makes sense. It's clear...

      First off, this is not a surprise.

      Secondly, consider how the Cadillac car line is priced. ATS (soon to be CT4 or CT3) runs from $34-50k. CTS (soon to be CT5) runs from $45k to $69k. XTS...

      That's still not $57k.

      It's academic, anyway, it's not going to be sold for dollars, regardless of how many.

      And the rest of its competition starts in the ~$45k neighborhood, so I have no faith that the "starts where the last one ends loaded up" relationship would hold true. CLA45 starts at $47,500. M235i...

      Or, y'know, get you where you need to be on a fishing or camping trip while also being a reasonable daily commuter.

      Of course not. That's obviously for flat-towing the car. You shift the transmission into N just like any other.

      Most versions of most non-Wrangler Jeeps are soccer mom specials. There have been 2WD and AWD (no low range) Grand Cherokees for some time, and the XJ Cherokee and the Liberty were also available in...
