Jeez don’t people care about the Polar bears? /s
Where's our border tax Mr. Trump?
FORD refused the gummint bailout and because of THAT, I never repeat nor even laugh at Ford jokes .... Piss on Chevy instead (and it USED’t be piss on Ford)
Agreed. I subscribe to four different auto magazines and just recently have I been able to even read part of a review on GM products. Would never buy one.
but, but, but - electric cars are awesome and that is what everyone wants
The next time the Democrats come to power and control the EPA, they will ban such vehicles and they will require every “owner” of a vehicle with an internal combustion engine to have an expensive Federal permit. They mean to destroy the auto industry much the way they destroyed the coal industry. They intend to “transform” and impoverish America.
The results of this Motor Trend Magazine big SUV throwdown sure won’t hurt Ford sales. Even though this FORD comes in at 50k!!!
5th: Toyota Sequoia TRD Sport 4WD Ten years old and feels every year of it. Its big and cheap. If thats all you need, youll be OK. But dont go looking for more here.
4th: Nissan Armada Platinum 4WD Despite its comfortable ride and prompt powertrain, its useless third row, maddeningly complex electronic controls, and high cost of ownership keep it off the podium.
3rd: Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4WD Z71 The best-seller gets by, thanks to its slightly more usable third row, better fuel economy, stronger off-road performance (thanks, tires!), and modern infotainment system.
2nd: Dodge Durango 4 R/T The Durango is getting on in years, but Dodge has kept it fresh. Youll lack some interior space but gain a great driving experience, nice materials, and a cheap sticker price.
1st: Ford Expedition XLT FX4 4×4 Spacious, smart, comfortable, quick, and efficient, the Expedition does it all well. On-road, off-road, towing, you name itthis is the best in class.
Yup. After 50 years as a GM guy, that’s when I switched. Both my cars & trucks were all GM, now drive a sweet F-150.
Nothing from Government Motors - who is heavily owned by the Unions......
Until recently we had a Yukon Denali. It was an amazingly capable, comfortable vehicle, but I got tired of driving a bus, and at 15 mpg, refueling it weekly.
WE’re all gonna die!!!!!!!........................
At the time, I expressed that sentiment but no one seemed to agree with me.
Time heals all, I guess.
I REALLY hope I'm alive in ten or twelve years to see how President Trump has rebuilt America
It’s being built in an existing plant in Mexico. We want that plant back here. We need that border tax now!
Someone else got a fairly new F150 lately.
One of my higher ups lives a few hundred yards from me where that particular F150 was stolen. Her SUV was gone through.
Nice neighborhood and plenty of neighbors.
I'm not so sure President Trump is SUCH an isolationist.
Good business allows someone that could be useful, to have a few crumbs just to keep them on your side.
But that's a guess.
Bring back HUMMER!
Well they could always bring back the Excursion. My fave SUV.
I expect they are very good at flattening Prius’s and Dolt’s.
Big-@$$ fuel inefficient SUVs rule!
We’re gonna need more refineries!
