I've read that Ford sometimes accepts orders after a cutoff, but they won't guarantee completing within the current model year, and your odds are better if it's a simple order without special...

If there is a backlog for Core, I would assume they'll gate some people over into 2014 models. I don't think they'd delay the plant shutdown for summer maintenance and retooling, just to finish off...

My daily driver is a 13 year old 4 door sedan. I still get letters from dealers telling me that my car is "in short supply" and that they are "desperate to buy more of these models". :liar:

You can't get manuals in any of the full size trucks anymore. One comment I see on the Tacoma and Frontier forums is people would have considered buying American, but getting a manual trans meant...

Fast forward to the 3:00 mark, Castiglione went to bat at the last minute as the concept car was being prepared and pleaded for a manual trans to be included:

When I clicked on this, I thought it would be about what mods did you *write off* as deductions on your taxes.... kind of a stretch to do that.

Maybe a plastic trunk liner could be justified. "I...

Sometimes orders at the tail end of a model year, will be converted over into the following year. Ordering now may already be a September gamble.

Swapping non-spec engines into a vehicle has been a gargantuan task for probably 20 years. Some of the electronics will refuse to work, if the VINs encoded on the chips don't match.

For example I...

I think 2015 will just be a "revised" exterior. They'll slim the proportions down a little, and keep the basic outline and styling cues. If I'm wrong ther'll be 2014's out there available on the...

Many years ago I remember Chrysler updating the LeBaron interior, and also putting it in the Daytona. (I kept wondering if they'd also put it in the Shadow but they never did.) I doubt they sold a...

There are normally enough leaks posted here, to know a week or two before the current model year order thresholds are met. However if your order is too "custom" it can gate over into the next model...

Or maybe not. I think automakers could become something like the film industry. Anything that is successful is re-made or there is a sequel to it.

There are still builds from the past that could...

Interiors have been one thing FIAT has pushed Chrysler on. I think it's clear the Italians don't take the ho-hum "that's good enough for this price point" attitude that Diamler and Cerebus had.

I really doubt the car will shrink to become close to Mustang standards. Chrysler has a nice niche for an American grand tourer. I'm sure they're aware people buy Challengers that like having a full...

If there is an entire interior refresh in 2015, that would jibe with the rumor of 2015 and 2016 continuing on LX, with 2017 being the revised platform. It would be very unusual to refresh an interior...

I still remember the auto mags gushing over the Ford Taurus SHO in the late 80s. To have over 200 HP in a sedan was considered otherworldly, after the malaise era.

I'm still willing to think there will be more content change 13 to 14 than there was 12 to 13.

At least RS is confirming 2014 will be a full build year. There has been speculation it would be a...

The GM forums are really grumbling over the Camaro fascias. I think the refresh will go down as a blunder if there are not performance and handling improvements announced tomorrow.
