The long wait is over and the chance to go off-road in the all-new and highly anticipated 2021 Ford Bronco Sport has arrived. Host Jack Nerad was one of a select few auto journalists who got the chance to put the Bronco Sport through its paces at the renowned Hungry Valley off-road park near Gorman, California. During the course of a very satisfying day, he had the chance to thoroughly wring out both versions of what is expected to be an extremely popular vehicle that will come to market in the next few weeks.
Also in the road test segment, co-host Chris Teague unveils his thoughts on the 2021 GMC Canyon AT4, the off-road version of GMC’s popular midsize pickup. GMC execs have high hopes the AT4 brand will bring them incremental sales as Americans return to nature.
If that isn’t enough off-roading for you, we also interview Jeff Roselli, chief engineer on the RAM 1500 TRX super truck. Nerad recently had a chance to sit down with Roselli for a lengthy interview during the TRX introductory drive event outside Reno, Nevada, and he got a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to build a truck with its amazing capabilities.
In the news segment, Teague and Nerad discuss the ongoing drama at Volkswagen, where the CEO is looking for a new contract and stronger backing on his bold plan to make VW a prominent electric vehicle manufacturer. And they’ll tell you which major product has encountered an unexpected delay in coming to market.
