WAIT WHAT?

this is a thread about a BMW X3 right ? not a Chevrolet Traverse, ?...

because I'm wondering why Chevrolet can't build a decent SAV if they can build a corvette!

Chevy Trax- Crap.
Chevy Equinox - crap on a shingle.
Chevy Traverse - are you kidding me?
All new Blazer ? c'mon man...

Why can't Chevy build an SUV as good as BMW does... AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE?

Coming from someone that works on their advertising, that wasn't very good. I wonder what the story board looked like.

Tell me a company who hasn't diluted their badges?

Porsche has been doing it for a while with "Turbo" SUVS, Mercedes and AMG is the king of it. Jaguar/RR and SVR

They had to do it, don't hate the player, hate the game.

But I love the game. Don't people realize cars like this help the budget for developing other M car engines! X5M and X3M are huge help for future M5 and M3s
you mean developing monster grills and fwd 2 series grand coupe xdrive 35i msport competition?

At the end of the day it will not be $60k when it's all said and done because it comes standard with practically nothing and when you start adding the basic things that you would like you're gonna go oh snap. Also, at the end of the day it's American, the quality is just not there...

LOL..pretty bad. Just shows off the terrible sound of the S58 (really, again, BMW??) and nothing more. It's like they want the vehicle to be a flop.

I'll give you a hint: Audi has cancelled the R8 and will not produce a successor. Ford GT is extremely, extremely limited production...

The new ford gt isn't street legal , which screams " lots of money saved not crash testing one "



" DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford will sell an even faster, more powerful version of its Ford GT supercar for $1.2 million. But only 45 will be built, the automaker announced Thursday, and it won't be legal to drive them on public roads.

The 700 horsepower Ford GT Mk II is intended for track use only. It was also not designed to comply with the regulations of any particular racing series, giving engineers free reign to maximize the car's performance potential, Ford said."

They could've done more with a very special setting like Manhattan.

Porsche did a nice promo vid in Vancouver for the Macan a couple years ago. That was much more exciting.

I like the idea of a city like NYC being used as the backdrop. It's just sort of boring, from the color of the car to the clips shown and the soundtrack.

except.... that's not what is selling right now.... You dont build products people dont want... it's kind of a simple business model. You build what people want and you add features other competitors do not have to set yourself apart. a very very small few would buy an M supercar. Why would they spend all that development on a car that even YOU wouldnt (couldn't) buy?

BMW spent eternity to develop i8, because everything it had, had to be engineered from the scratch, it costs over 100k and people buy it, I think it will cost way less to develop Supercar, simply use existing Engine and Drivetrain and build lightweight body around it, ie M8 GTE

BMW has been leading comfortably for quite some time. technology has come a long way very fast that other car companies are implementing tech that once only BMW or luxury cars would have. Making the choice even harder to stick with BMW. Since they are also offering v8 engines at similar price range to BMW''s flagship vehicles
