"What a weird time to get a Corvette." My friends are right. The high is currently 23 degrees Fahrenheit, and my press loaner - the Z51-equipped Stingray Coupe - is wearing Michelin Pilot Super Sports, regarded as among the best sports-car tires ... when it's warm out.
Quick, think of the first long-wheelbase luxury sedan you can. What comes to mind, a BMW 750Li? Lexus LS600hL? Audi A8L? Was your first thought the Jaguar XJL? If not, it should move up to the front of the line, because it's just as capable as the competition, with a unique angle on sportiness that gives it a proper advantage over certain competitors.
Toyota always has been an outsider looking in at the American full-size truck market, no matter how good its Tundra full-size has been in the past. Lots of American truck buyers give the side-eye to "furrin" competition - if it ain't wearing a ram's head, a bowtie, a blue oval, or a "GMC" badge, and if it doesn't have ties to Detroit, don't bother. That's been the slightly xenophobic message sent along by trucksters for a long time.
