    VW is currently planning to restructure a bit the current plans are by make:
    VW is going to be a bit more like Audi in the future
    Audi stayd mostly the same
    Seat is supposedly getting the axe
    Cupra will move upmarket modelwise so they will get bigger models with more performance orientation
    Skoda supposedly will be cut down a bit with the Superb getting discontinued
    In my opinion this would really hurt them because they really invested alot in the brands and now the seemingly will throw everything overboard.

    Sounds like 2021 VW is the new 2008 GM.

    Aaaaah the classic Aussie mouth, i take it that it was you driving in most of the the clips (with the exception of the random ones of course), and blimey you Easterners really cant tell the difference between and red or green light :) (and im also surprised that there weren't that many commodores)

    The outgoing/outdated 2020 Armada and current 2021 QX80 are heavily present in the rental fleet currently. They must not be selling hot to the public. This refresh to the Armada is much needed but its still antiquated.
    I really like the powertrain in these, the V8 pulls hard and sounds amazing, but they handle really sloppy. They don't wear their weight well.

    Just watched TheStraightPipes review about the new 2021 Dodge ram 1500 TRX. It is just a bigger Hellcat. I like it. Opinions?

    Bigger Hellcat with much more suspension travel. I freaking love it (too bad I can't afford it), and it's great that the Raptor finally has some competition. I'm hoping that this means that Ford might give the Raptor a V8 option too. Most automotive journalists are saying that it's going to be the GT500 motor but I know somebody with Ford connections that insists it will be a high output version of the 7.3L gasser from the HD trucks.

    Rear looks better imo

    I was hoping they'd do the 2nd gen themselves, but it's probably still basically the same as the upcoming GT86 (or GR86 as they're apparently renaming it). Either way I'm excited. Thoughts?

    Looks great. From a distance, the rear looks like Aston Martin Vantage V10. Not the old one, Im talking about the 1st gen. The front, I think it looks like a mix of MX-5, a bit of 2019 Supra, and maybe of Alpine A110.

    But this stuff is Bananas. Baby Driver yes

    It looks lovely. The rear has a bit of a Vantage touch to it, as @Jakux mentioned. The front is awesome too, I feel the hood has the same curvature as the AMR Vantage.
