I think I heard that the 1st Raptor was intended to bend its frame when jumping: so as to not damage the suspension. Not sure how true that is, or how wise, but its something.

A 2 door SUV makes no sense. The only appeal that a 2 door anything has over 4 would be appearance. In cars, coupes have a sleeker roofline than their sedan counterpart. Try that on a crossover or...

I need to clarify.
You can fairly reliably price out a Chevrolet by looking at the GMC version, and knocking a few grand off. Thats what I meant by 'Priced as a Chevrolet Acadia': Take an GMC Acaida...

You can get the Acadia with a NA I4 or a NA V6. I doubt the Blazer will be any different.

Nobody drives away from the dealership in a 911 for only 90 grand either. Porsche does that with everything.

I'm sure that some $25k truck truck loans are stretched out to 8 years too, and I'd bet those ones have a much higher risk of being defaulted on than for a loan worth 3 times as much.

For anybody...

Its a great product if you don't have the slightest care for build quality or reliability. But by that measure, the Yugo is a pretty good car too.

I highly doubt its an EV being charged with jumper cables. For one thing, the Bolt has a ~200 mile range on a 60 kWh battery. Lets just say that this Corvette somehow manages similar efficiency. A...

You're assuming that nobody would be dying from having a driver being completely unresponsive at the wheel. I don't think thats a very sound assumption to make.

2019s are going into production right about now, so I'd bet against the 2021 models being a new generation. Plus, I think the CT5 is scheduled to be a 2020 model with the CT4 being a 2021. It would...
