Ram quit building the Dakota, its entry-level pickup truck, in 2010. Today, a replacement would fall in the same segment as the Chevrolet Colorado and the Ford Ranger. It's not happening, according to FCA boss Sergio Marchionne. "We have not found an economic way to get this done," he explained.
Leaked documents suggest the upcoming Ferrari 488 GTO will get a 700-horsepower V8 engine. It's 10-percent lighter than the eight-cylinder engine used in the 488 GTB. The car will also come with aluminum floors, a stripped-down interior without a glove box, and carbon fiber rims. We could see the GTO make its debut in Geneva.
Hyundai recently said the i30 N is more fun than a Volkswagen GTI. The Wolfsburg-based firm replied and, unsurprisingly, it thinks it builds the better product8. "Extraordinary claims are being made for supposed rivals that are not yet on sale. While any skunkworks can turn out a track day special, the expertise and experience required to engineer a GTI or an R - cars that also excel in the real world — is rather more hard won," Michael Bartsch, Volkswagen's managing director, told Motoring.
FCA boss Sergio Marchionne is done looking for a partner to merge with. "Last time I checked I had no food and no tables set up for any wedding. We cannot wait for this infamous wedding to happen. I don't care, and I don't think it will happen while I'm here," he said.
The London EV Company has delayed shipments of its brand new black cab over an issue with the meter. The company points out it has already found the source of the problem, and it's working with its supplier to fix it in a timely manner.
The i30 N is more fun to drive than the Volkswagen GTI, according to Hyundai."With the N we clearly want to be more suitable for track driving than GTI and give it more character and most important thing, give it much, more fun to drive," the company told CarAdvice. That's fighting talk.
