Mar 31st 2011 1:01AM That would have made more sense. Even more it would make more sense to have it as a Cadillac until the technology can be made cheap enough to go on Chevrolets. But this may be too late now unless they are only targeting markets other than the US.
Mar 24th 2011 8:11PM It is good to see from other commenters that I am not the only one who liked this.

Mar 21st 2011 11:18AM Tough choice mundotaku but I think I prefer the Ranger as well.
Mar 21st 2011 11:15AM Sharp looking but would it sell in the US? I do jot see many of the old ones on the streets.
Mar 17th 2011 10:33AM Sea Urchin,why is this not a valid position to take? The government does not need to make all decisions for the people. History shows they make those determinations themselves. After the oil crisis of the 70s cars in the US went much smaller, with smaller engines. Recall the muscle car almost died. The a few years back when oil shot up people again used their purchasing power and moved to smaller cars. Also recently the body-on-frame SUV has been dwindling because people are now buying crossovers with more efficient engines and better handling dynamics. Did the government had to mandate any of these reactions? So it is OK to be skeptical of government attitudes, particularly mandates with no clear or dubious benefit. There was an article recently here in the blog that showed more fuel efficient cars mean more miles driven and hence potentially no savings in consumption or emissions:http://green.autoblog.com/2011/03/09/do-drivers-with-green-cars-put-on-more-miles/
Mar 16th 2011 12:46PM Are there any details on engines for this SUV?
Mar 7th 2011 12:27PM I like it. Not much else to say.
Feb 25th 2011 9:19PM I do not understand this. Are they trying to compete with the X6? I do not find it offensive but it seems a weird direction for De Tomaso.
