Increased SUV sales accompany a rise in pedestrian fatalities.
We both can and can't believe Ford would support this.
His focus is distracted from building Tesla cars at scale.
Hint: It's the autoworkers the president says he's helping.

We've learned that Hyundai's engineers are working on a high-performance N version of the Hyundai Kona subcompact crossover SUV. And while people might cringe at the idea of putting effort into making a crossover sporty, we're not opposed to the idea. It worked pretty well in the case of the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, and now that it's gone, really the only sporty little crossover left is the Mini Countryman S and John Cooper Works. And if we're stuck in a crossover world, why not have ones that are

The knowledge that smoothly riding that wave into third gear and beyond is going to require skill, timing and a degree of expertise beyond a fingertip on a paddle is the reward I want from a car such as the GT3.
When it was first introduced in 2007, there was nothing like the original Ford Sync system, since it allowed car owners to connect and use a portable device better than anything that came before it. It took competitors awhile to catch up. But now Ford is the one playing catchup.

It's a car anyone can enjoy. My wife, who until recently has shown no real interest in sports cars beyond their design, wants one. I want one, too, but I couldn't get past the Miata's terrible seats.
