A lot of the North American Auto Makers vehicles are aimed at kicking Euro and Asian cars butts as of late...
Pontiac Solstice GXP...runs laps around the Porsche Boxter all day long, for less money, The G8 GT will outperform the 3-series BMW's for less, and the automotive journalists are just salivating to put the G8 GXP when it comes out against the 5-series BMW and Mercedes as well. And when it comes to the Cadillac CTS-V (The new one), it's apparently an absolute sledgehammer...pure power, and bags of grip too.
When Ford Unleashes (FINALLY FOR FRICK SAKE!!!) the MK2 Focus on North America, the RS will be able to blow the doors off any Civic or Corolla availble. They are also planning to release the Fiesta, which will outperform the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris.
I thank the folks in Australia, NZ, and the UK for having such brilliant vehicles, and for letting us finally get a taste of them here in North America, Especially in Canada.
