We Hardly Knew Ye: Jeep Set To Cancel 2.0L eTorque Hybrids

June 29th, 2020 | by Jo Borrás

It seems like Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) just released its 4-cylinder eTorque mild-hybrid Jeep Wrangler models. Indeed, the 2.0 liter turbocharged eTorque hybrids were new for the 2019 model year, but it seems like they're the latest products getting the axe in the wake of the COVID-19 economic downturn


Tesla Model 3 Sales Demolish Ford Mustang & Dodge Charger Sales

April 27th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Looking at how the Tesla Model 3 compares on lists of the top selling cars in the USA is always a bit odd. The other top selling cars are a class or three below the Model 3. The most comparable vehicles on the list are the iconic Ford Mustang and Dodge Charger, which do not match the Model 3 in several major categories (sometimes by a gigantic margin) but are at least in the "sporty affordable cars" category


Suzuki, Jeep, & Volvo May Have Cheated EU Emissions Tests

January 27th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

The Dutch road authority ruled last Thursday that Fiat Chrysler's Jeep Grand Cherokee and Suzuki's Vitara diesel models broke emissions rules and if they are not fixed, these automakers will be banned from selling vehicles in Europe. The EU isn't playing


The Sierra Club’s Nationwide Study On The EV Shopping Experience

November 25th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Back in 2015, when we shopped EVs and then leased a Nissan Leaf, we were the primary EV educators up to the point of sale, not the salespeople. Even during the test drive, we had more knowledge. Our grasp on the function and reality of electric cars seemed to overwhelm the salesperson. We passionately emphasized why we wanted an electric car. Our sales person remained less than enthusiastic


How The Tesla CyberTruck Puts Ford, Chevy, & Ram In A Pickle

November 20th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

In this article, I'll talk about how Tesla's announcement of its CyberTruck will hurt sales of other pickup trucks, even before the truck ships its first unit. Make sure you also read Frugal Moogal's article about the broad effects of the industry's transition to electric vehicles and compares this transition to how other industries dealt with (or didn't) their own transitions. Frugal also wrote an article that is more specific, dealing with the Mustang's effect on Ford


FCA Finds No Love (From Renault, PSA, Or Daimler)

June 7th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

After a long history of falling down, struggling, and getting up again, followed by a failed merger with Daimler AG, there was nobody willing to help rescue Chrysler after the 2008 crises. That is, until the nearly broke and also struggling Italian FIAT Group dressed in its best white knight suit and showed willingness to try it


Nissan Execs May Have Shot Themselves In The Foot

May 29th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

While Nissan’s executives deny it, many in the automotive media and even Carlos Ghosn himself think his arrest was orchestrated by Nissan executives to prevent a merger with Renault. If this is true, then the executives have indeed shot themselves in the foot


Convincing Mom To Get The Pacifica PHEV

April 8th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

I have 4 kids, so you might think I’d consider a minivan, but I’m just not a minivan person. I don’t have anything against them, but they’re just not for me. At all. My mom, on the other hand, loves them. She’s owned a number of different vans and minivans over the years. Her last two vans were Dodge Grand Caravans. She really likes them — enough, apparently, to go for three in a row
