"Henry Ford II's personal dominance of the company gave it a different character, certainly different from other publicly owned companies in the automobile game," Miller said in 2003. "GM and Chrysler were not that way. You knew who the boss was. There were no palace politics with anyone trying to take over."
The first thing you notice about motor homes, apart from their ginormous exterior size, is that they all seem to have aftermarket audio systems controlled by near-microscopic buttons. It takes a long time to figure them out and even longer to get yer fat fingers to hit the right buttons. Another thing I noticed right away was that when I turned on the turn signal, the CD player went mute. Weird.
The two M Sport models both sit on 19in alloy wheels and include unique bumpers and paintwork, as well as heated front seats. The M Sport and M Sport X are inspired by circuit racing and rallying respectively. Both trims receive stiffer M Sport suspension and have a lowered ride height.
After its debut in the 2016 Civic, where it’s an upgrade over the base 158-hp, naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder, the 1.5-liter spread to the ludicrously popular CR-V crossover as an upgrade over the standard 184-hp, naturally aspirated 2.4-liter four. In the Civic it’s rated at 174 horsepower—except in the supertasty Si, where it spins out 205 ponies. In the CR-V, it lights off at 190 horsepower.
When the weather is bad and the roads are slippery, there is more chance of you losing control of your car. This manifests itself as a slide, which can turn into oversteer or understeer, depending on what kind of car you are driving, what steering you are doing and the throttle and braking that you are using.
Huntsman Accessory Pack introduced for Isuzu D-Max 4x4, tailored for countryside hunters
Understeer is caused when the front wheels of a car slip on the road surface while the rears still have grip. It usually occurs when you carry too much speed into a corner, and when you go to apply steering lock, the front end of the car doesn't respond and the car wants to continue straight ahead, rather than following the direction of the front wheels around the corner.
Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are a standard feature on most cars, courtesy of legislation that has made it compulsory to fit them to mass-produced cars. The system uses electronics to optimise the effectiveness of a car's braking system, and it's a major boost in vehicle safety when compared to cars that aren't equipped with ABS that rely on the driver to make the most of the braking power available.
Note that Alexanian said nothing about the 2019 model year. If we were guessing, we’d expect a spring auto-show debut for the hotter, non-Quad Giulia, although the fact that the new engine is already in the Mopar service system might mean that the car could bow earlier. Given the impending arrival of a Giulia coupe, we’d expect the new motor to help the Italian go toe to toe with Audi’s S4 and S5. We’ve also reached out to Alfa Romeo HQ in Italy and will update if further clarification arrives.
