Demand is high for the 1500. For all of the problems plaguing the automotive industry, pickup trucks aren’t one of them. Demand for the big workhorses hasn’t slipped much despite the coronavirus pandemic and semiconductor shortage eating into production. The demand has forced Stellantis , Ram’s new overseer, to kick pickup truck production into high gear. The Detroit Free Press reports that skilled trades workers will soon be clocking 84-hour workweeks to build the 1500 . The extra hours are being added at the automaker’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Michigan, where the company builds the 1500. Some of the workers will be expected to work seven days on followed by seven days off; however, affected workers shared their displeasure about the work schedule with the Free Press . Many told the publication that they’re frustrated with the long, disruptive shifts, though the alternative they could have chosen would have required even more disruptive rotations. … [Read more...] about Stellantis Starting 84-Hour Work Week At Ram Truck Plant

It's definitely a different take on the Bronco. Chip Foose doesn't like designing modified vehicles that follow the same trend that everyone else is doing. When he applies this ethos to the 2021 Ford Bronco the result is a hot-rod-inspired SUV with a dropped ride height and a swept-back windshield. Foose is a fan of the new Bronco's overall appearance, but if someone wants to overhaul one, he has some ideas. Foose retains the wheelbase and shape of the fenders but alters practically everything else. The drawing of the custom Bronco gives it a much more prominent front bumper that makes the SUV appear to be sitting even closer to the ground. The tie-downs on the hood are gone. To create a sleeker appearance at the front, he drastically angles the windshield. New side sills taper upward to accentuate the vehicle's stance. Rather than the off-road setup of using big tires, Foose installs large, Mustang-inspired wheels with skinny rubber wrapping around them. He also … [Read more...] about Ford Bronco Gets Reimagining As Street Rod From Chip Foose
Chatting to the media via Zoom during Aston Martin's launch on Wednesday, Sebastian Vettel was in an optimistic and positive frame of mind, making it clear that he's moved on from any disappointment at the way his Ferrari career ended. That mojo phrase was used last year by Aston Martin technical director Andrew Green when speaking about what Vettel could bring to the team, and what the team could in turn do for him. But while Vettel may be an Anglophile, it's not a phrase that he's overly familiar with.

Maybe that's an easy way out of this question for me. "Obviously last year, it's not a secret, at stages I wasn't at my happiest, so this year, I'm very much looking forward. It's a great group of people. The spirit is great, very … [Read more...] about Has Vettel got his mojo back with Aston Martin?

There are three things to really consider when looking at the latest batch of cars: how have the team handled the new regulations that reduce downforce by approximately 10%, how have they reconfigured the car under the homologation and token system and what progress have they made from an aerodynamic perspective aside from the change in regs. In terms of how this team has handled the new regulations, we’ll have to wait to see the physical car, as the renders released by the team fall short of revealing any of this detail. The floor clearly meets the dimensional requirements issued by the FIA but, like the floor it tested in Abu Dhabi, this falls short of displaying any of the aerodynamic trinkets that will likely occupy the space ahead of the rear tyre.
