This is what we have to expect in the next few years according to the current issue of Motortrend:

1. Lincoln MKS like the concept, but no 4.4L V8, a 3.7L V6 instead.

2. F150 with 6.2L Hurricane (Boss) and a turbodiesel V6 or V8.

3. Ford D471/Lincoln D472......basically Fords version of the Buick Enclave and a replacement for the Freestar minivan. Looks like the Ford Fairlane concept.

4. New Focus, european version by 2010

5. Toyota was forced to delay the launch of their Tundra pickups because their interior wasn't as good as the just launched GM pickups, so they needed to come up with a more upscale interior.

6. Ford has a new 5.0L Boss as well as a non-Boss 5.0L v8 that can be used in RWD and FWD applications.

7. Caddy CTS-V + 515hp LS7 = Amazing

8. Buick Enclave gets a V8 a year after its release.

9. New larger and upscale Chevy Malibu

10. Porsche Panamera four door 340hp and 450hp versions.

11. 2008/9 clean diesel Honda Accord

12. 4-point Seat belts to possibly replace the current three point design.

13. Mercedes CL65 AMG with 605hp/740 ft-lbs of torque. :yikes


By the way, they tested the Vette Z06, Viper, and GT500 and ranked them:

1. Vette Z06

2. GT500

3. Viper

If I had the money I would buy one of them in a heart beat.

500+hp in a five seater that can be driven everyday....simply amazing. I wonder if they will give it an automatic as well.

it wont compete with the charger. It will rape the charger.
Unless they drop the Viper engine in the Charger, then it gets interesting.

They have to do something. The 425hp 6.1L just isn't going to cut it with 500hp mustangs and 450hp Camaros running around. :)
