Corsica Motor Company - 2020 Taluvec Aileron


#137

Sisten and Taluvec have joined the Corsica thread yay


Following from 1973, the Sisten Corporation kept on downsizing their models. This included the Sisten Country Cruiser, the wagon equivelant of the GS full-size sedan. Starting production in 1979, the sixth generation Country Cruiser lasted until 1991 after it was replaced by the seventh generation model.


1979 SISTEN COUNTRY CRUISER

The sixth generation Country Cruiser is based on the T-platform, sharing it with the higher-end Taluvec Custom Callahan, Grand Callahan and the aforementioned Sisten GS. A total of 4,945,971 units of the T-platform were made.

As the Taluvec was the high-end model, a base Country Cruiser started at $6500 and went up to $8000 when fully optioned out.

Due to the domestic wagon business starting to fade out, the designers made sure not to take risks while designing the '79 model. One part where the designers took influence from the imports was the placement of the front badge, which was set to the right of the grille. A long standing Country Cruiser tradition, an integrated exterior indicator display was removed. The wood on the sides of the car was a standard feature and as such, could not be de-optioned - however, some workshops did offer to remove it later.

From 1979, two V8 engines were available: the 5.0 liter TRE and the 5.8 liter Quadra. Both make a combined horsepower rating of 251. The 5.0 engine features a 0-62 time of 10.5 seconds and achieves 9 mpg while the 5.8 achieves 0-62 in 9.4 seconds and also gets 9 mpg.

In 1983, a 4.0 liter Inline-6 was added to the lineup. With 92 horsepower, it gets to 62mph in 16.5 seconds. This option was discontinued for 1990, before the final model year.

Every model took advantage of a 4-speed automatic.

The sixth gen. Country Cruiser signaled the downfall of the domestic wagon. Sales were down from previous models and the following seventh generation model was made from just 1991 to 1994 after it was discontinued due to low sales. Today however, these models are gaining value quickly since they’re getting rarer by the day. Also hipsters.

Sisten and Hokuto Have Teamed Up on a Global Electric Car Platform

August 16, 2019 - by Javis Babys

Hokuto and Sisten both announced yesterday a new electric car platform, called the SHEP. The platform has been developed by the two companies with more than $5 billion invested into the project from both sides. SHEP will be the basis of all upcoming electric cars from Sisten and Hokuto, spoke a representative from Sisten, with plans to manufacture 400,000 vehicles using the SHEP platform over five years.

The first known model to use this platform will be a crossover SUV from Corsica, most likely to be announced at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany. Announcing the new model in Europe will be an important step for the brand as sales have been slow after their return to the European market. The highest priority market for the new SUV however will most likely be China, where sales of Corsica and Taluvec models have been booming as of recently.

Seeing the slow progress on EV’s from Sisten, this partnership is a huge step for them.

At the New York International Auto Show in 2013, Sisten announced the 10th generation of the S-Series with the all-new S1500 and S3500 High Duty pickup trucks.

10th Gen. Sisten S1500 and S3500 High Duty,

from 2013 - present


The S1500 line starts with the 2-door SXC model. Equipped with a 3.8 Powerjet V6 and a 6-speed Automatic transmission, the SXC starts at $29,000. Standard equipment includes a 4,2" screen reserved for the radio and Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and front foglights.

The SXE model is a direct upgrade to the SXC adding chrome bumpers, a 6" screen with EDGE infotainment system and the 4x4 powertrain. The SXE starts at $31,560 and has the same engine/gearbox as the SXC with the V6 producing 321 horsepower and 387 Nm of torque.

The 2013 S1500 runs on the updated ST TF3 platform, which is shared with the 8th generation Sisten Tenaya full-size SUV launched the year before.

The LXE is the lowest-level 4 door model. The drivetrain is the same as the SXE, standard equipment features bigger, 18" wheels, a rear-window defroster and the Power Slide© rear window. Leather seats become an option here as well as alloy wheels, a 5.0 V8 is also optional. The LXC starts at $37,915.

One step above the LXC is the LXS from $45,000. Safety features such as Active Trailer Park Assist and a 360-degree camera come standard, alongside a bigger center screen and leather seats. The 5.0 Turbulence V8 is now standard, with it making 406 horsepower and 491 Nm of torque.

The double wishbone front- and leaf rear suspension has been carried over from the previous S1500 with minor updates for improved stability and carrying ability, this means the 2013 model can carry over 2200lbs of cargo.

Ranch Master is the range-topper of the S1500, starting at $62,050. The 5.0 V8 is equipped as standard alongside a sturdier 6-speed automatic gearbox. Alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control and the active park assist are now also standard. The exterior body cladding is body coloured and the window trim is painted chrome.



Along with the S1500, the new S3500 High Duty also went on sale in 2013. The S3500 features less-aggressive styling than its smaller brother, focusing more on utility and workmanship.

The line starts with the LXC. Starting at $38,000, it’s equipped with a 2x4 drivetrain and like all S3500 models, a 6.1 Supertorque V8. Cloth seats might be included within the price.

The second trim level is LXE, with a price of $39,980. 4x4 is standard from the LXE onwards. This trim includes a 7" infotainment screen with EDGE, a chrome front-end and LED lamps in the rear bed.

The LXS is the mid-level range, starting from $46,155. Cruise control and a two-tone paint scheme are standard. The two-tone applies to the lower body cladding, which can be 5 different colors. A leather interior can be optioned.

The 2013 S3500 rides on the same platform as the previous High Duty, due to cost savings. This also means the suspension setup has been maintained from the older model. The 2013 model can carry up to 4000 pounds.

The high-end Ranch Master of the S3500 starts at $62,100 and includes features such as a leather and wood interior, heated steering wheel, beige or body-colored cladding and adaptive cruise control with emergency braking. Alloy wheels are standard, steel wheels can be optioned.

The Ranch Master is the most popular trim of the S3500, making up nearly half of all sales. Overall sales of the longrunning S-series trucks have been strong as ever, with 2016 being the best year for the S1500 of all time; it also continues to be the best-selling vehicle in the Sisten lineup.

The clear standout in 2019 was Asia. With new compact models from Sisten and SUVs from Taluvec having been introduced throughout the year, sales increased by more than 30 percent. The Sisten Sunburst compact sedan gathered more than 190,000 sales in China alone, being the highest selling Sisten model in all of Asia.

The re-introduction of Corsica for the European market has been a success. Despite the opening of only 12 dealerships throughout Europe, 534 models were sold in total in 2019. The Corsica Cheetah made up nearly 50 percent of all Corsicas sold in Europe.

The introduction of the Taluvec Aileron SUV and the continuing popularity of the Avigate and Courser SUVs brought considerable increases to Taluvecs earnings this year. As we stride towards bringing the consumers what they want and demand, the outlook for 2020 is good.
