What is it like to drive the much-anticipated 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E? We were among the first journalists to drive it, and we have a full report on the vehicle in this episode of America on the Road. Host Jack Nerad is Vice President of the North American Car of the Year jury that announced yesterday the Mach-E is one of three finalists for the 2021 North American Utility of the Year award. (The others are the Land Rover Defender and the Genesis GV80.)
While Jack Nerad takes a look at the Mustang Mach-E, co-host Chris Teague road tests the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 crossover. At about $45,000, the GLA is in tune with the times, offering sleek Mercedes exterior styling and a full-featured interior.
In the interview segment, Jack Nerad sits down for a lengthy interview with Jim Wilder, a 14-year veteran of FCA’s SRT high-performance arm. Wilder was instrumental in the development of the 797-horsepower 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye that is the fastest and most powerful production sedan on the planet. Wilder will reveal the secrets that set the Hellcat Redeye apart from other high-performance sedans. Check out our first drive here.
Christmas is coming, and in the news segment, Chris and Jack reveal some of the best car buys for this Yuletide season. Maybe Santa will deposit a new car in your driveway this Christmas. They also discuss how Snapchat, RelayCars, and augmented reality may radically change the way you shop for a car.
