In the interview segment of America on the Road hosts Jack Nerad and Chris Teague welcome FCA’s Tim Kuniskis, who is global head of Alfa Romeo and North American head of passenger cars. A performance car junkie, Kuniskis talks about Dodge’s recent announcements upping the acceleration ante for vehicles like the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye and the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock. With 807 horsepower on tap, the Super Stock claims to be the quickest and most powerful production musclecar on the planet. And that is part of Dodge’s strategy to capitalize on its deep performance heritage.
In the road test segment, Jack and Chris put the Volkswagen Tiguan and Honda CR-V Hybrid compact sport-utility vehicles. Chris praises the CR-V Hybrid for its excellent drivability and good integration of hybrid power. Jack lauds the Tiguan for its seven-passenger interior room and its European-inspired driving habits.
In the news, Jack and Chris take a look at Hyundai’s new Clean Air technologies designed to freshen the air inside their vehicles, and they discuss the fact the average car on the road is now over 11 years old.
