I drove a car with this recently, it's a great little engine with a seamless switch between the two modes. By the looks of it, it's not as efficient as you would hope it would be, but then again, is anything these days?
LMAO, the return of running boards. I predict failure. Reminds me of Frank Lee's term for Suburbans, "Subdivisions". Saw an Expedition yesterday, dropped so low it was riding on the bump stops. Proof that Darwin's evolution has failed miserably.
At least that "low rider" didn't need an elevator to get the passengers inside.
I kinda dig the Navigator, minus those wheels, at least as much as I can like a large SUV. That Infiniti though...what an odd-looking thing.
Saw a Maserati SUV last week. A MASERATI SUV?!!!! That and the Porsche SUV means the end of the world is approaching. A high performance SUV is an oxymoron. What's next?! Porsche forklifts?
Sports car makers are drawn to designing/building SUVs because SUV sales are 1/2 the auto market. That's why Tesla was compelled to produce their SUV before their economy car.
Additionally, Sports cars are not selling well. This is bad news about their future. People are just not into a fun driving experience as generations past. Millennials aren't even buying cars and car companies are feeling it.
