2021 Ram HD Now Boasts Over 1,000 lb-ft. of Torque. But There’s Fine Print to Consider.

The truck wars continue here in the Motor City as new performance specs were recently announced for the 2021 Ram HD. As of this writing, the Ram 3500 with a Cummins 6.7-liter High Output Turbo Diesel has the most torque of any HD truck on the market at 1,075 lb-ft. Ram’s new torque number sneaks past Ford’s PowerStroke (1,050 lb-ft. of torque) and handily surpasses the current Duramax (910 lb-ft. of torque).   Of course, torque numbers only tell part of the story. There is a lot more that det...

2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Big Hemi Wrangler Reports for Off-Road Duty

Jeep fans have been clamoring for a V8-powered Wrangler for as long as I can remember. The last Jeep to have a factory V8 engine dates back well before my birthdate, so it’s easy to understand the hype behind the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. This vehicle marks the return of a production V8 engine in a Wrangler after nearly 40 years. For millennials and younger Gen Xers, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the first-ever Wrangler with a standard V8 motor, and what an engine it is. Hemi V8 Rep...

Weekend reading: Terror of Tesla

What caught my eye this week. A las my co-blogger The Accumulator is too recumbent passive to bother with anything so energetic as sorting through the several hundred spam emails we get to Monevator each week in order to dig out reader messages. That means the readers who asked for our thoughts on the upcoming inclusion of $470bn electric car maker Tesla into the S&P 500 don’t get his comfy and sanguine words. Instead they get my snark. Let me first stress then that we’re flattered when anyone...

The Fulton v. City of Philadelphia Oral Argument: Interracial Marriage as a Constitutional Lodestar— or Third Rail?—in Reasoning about Religiously-Motivated Discrimination

 I agree with Professor Kyle C. Velte’s insightful post on this blog, “Reclaiming the Race Analogy inFulton v. City of Philadelphia” (Friday, November 13), in which she insists on the appropriateness of the analogy between religious opposition to interracial marriage and—more broadly—to racial integration and present-day religious opposition to same-sex marriage and—more broadly—to providing goods and services to same-sex couples.   Reflecting on the recent oral argument before the U.S. Supreme...

Thoughts on the Fulton Oral Argument

Early yesterday I published a long post here in which I tried to identify the various arguments that are salient in the Fulton case--and those that shouldn't be.  The fascinating and wide-ranging oral argument in the case yesterday raised virtually all of the issues I discussed.  Many of the Justices appeared to be troubled by Philadelphia's refusal to contract with Catholic Social Services (CSS) to be a Family Foster Care Agency (FCA) unless CSS agrees not to discriminate against same-sex coupl...
