Dealerships

Car dealers rely on the first half of each year to get rid of all the models on their lots from the previous year. By now, there were supposed to be few 2019 model year vehicles available. But, with dealerships basically shut down for most of the last two months, there are large amounts of lingering 2019s.

A new study by iSeeCars found that while the average new model has 10.8 percent of its inventory remaining from 2019, some models have more than six times that on dealer lots. Dealerships with high numbers of leftover models may be willing to offer buyers a steep discount to help make the sale.

iSeeCars analyzed its national inventory of over 1 million new cars for sale to determine which models have the most inventory from the 2019 model year available (and it's not good news for FCA).

The first Ford Mustang Mach-E hasn't even been delivered to a customer yet, but the company is wasting no time expanding its model lineup. The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is joining the stable given more boost to the crossover. Fordi s targeting a 3.5-second zero to 60 mph time for the model.

Ford says that the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance will deliver 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque to drivers. It is targeted to have an EPA-estimated range of 253 miles. Ford has been spot-on with its mileage estimates so far. The EPA just finalized their estimated range for a number of Mustang Mach-Es and only one was not what the company had initially said - it was one mile better.

"We already pushed the envelope by creating an electric vehicle with the pony badge, so it's only natural that we push it even further," said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. "Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition not only gives you the added performance you expect from the GT name, but accentuates the thrill with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain."

The new car isn't just a performance boost from the power plant. Ford is giving the model 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo calipers. The model will ride on 20-inch machined-face Ebonny Black-painted pocket wheels that are wrapped in 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires. Its standard MagneRide damping system helps to enhance handling. At the rear isa. Performance Edition GT badge.

The interior gets and upgrade too. The Ford Performance-sculpted front seats feature Performance Gray ActiveX material with metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated reflective inserts.The all-digital instrument panel has an aluminum appliqué.

Both Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition will be available in signature Mustang colors including Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, Grabber Blue Metallic, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic and Space White Metallic.

The Huots drove their 2014Mitsubishi Mirago for over 400,000 miles.

Jerry and Janice Huot spent 414,000 miles driving the Purple Won, but it wasn't their first choice. When the Huots arrived at White Bear Mitsubishi in White Bear Lake, Minnesota to trade in a Cadillac, they wanted a vehicle with better fuel economy. They saw that a Mirage got 44 mpg and they ended up driving it home.

The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage survived six winter in rural Minnesota. The only reason it won't be surviving its seventh is because White Bear Mitsubishi dealer principal Richard Herod III offered to trade them the for a new 2020 Mirage earlier this year. When they arrived at the dealership that day, they didn't plan on trading it in.

"I had brought it into the dealership for regular service and was saying hello to all the people we've gotten to know there when Richard came by," said Jerry. "When he heard about how many miles we had on the car, he said he wanted to use it for advertising, so he worked with us to get great deal on a new 2020 Mirage."

The Purple Won arrived at the dealership for trade wearing a "Purple Won" custom license plate and a purple paint job. The couple conceived the vanity plate's message by combining the car's color with the nickname of Price, who hailed from and lived in Minnesota.

The Huots had a lot of fun over the course of those 414,000 miles. One year Jerry dressed up the Mirage with horns for Janice's birthday in honor of her favorite football team, the Minnesota Vikings.

The Mirage lived a full life of many acts. It served as a commercial delivery vehicle, hauled rocks and mulch for a landscaping project and required nothing but standard maintenance.

"Janice drove it mostly for the first 7,000 miles or so, but when winter came, she wanted all-wheel-drive, so she got a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport," Jerry shared. "But then I started using the Mirage for my business. I am a courier. I deliver samples from various doctors' offices to labs, so I drive up and down the state and around town in Minneapolis all the time. The Mirage never missed a beat. It got me up and out of our gravel driveway, even in the middle of winter, when others got stuck in the snow."

The Huots never babied the Mirage. It was stored outside year-round. Naturally, it needed some repairs from time to time. "We had to replace the wheel bearings sometime after 150,000 miles, and the starter motor was replaced at somewhere between 200,000 and 300,000 miles, but that was all covered under warranty," Jerry said. "Otherwise, regular oil changes seemed to do the trick."

The Huots haven't divulged if they have any mileage goals for their new Mirage.
