In the interview segment of the award-winning America on the Road host Jack Nerad will talk with Carl Lally, senior manager of the RAM 1500 TRX. With its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine the TRX brings 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque to the off-road party, giving new meaning to the term doing it in the dirt. The truck’s 4.5-second zero to 60 mph time is just a hint of its all-around capabilities, and it is stuffed with creature comforts, as Lally will reveal.
In the road test segment, co-host Chris Teague will discuss the relative merits of the 2020 Lexus RX 350, a vehicle that has long ruled the roost at the top of the luxury SUV class. Is it losing some of its luster?
Also in the road test segment, Nerad will discuss his week-long test drive of the all-new Nissan Sentra compact sedan. Nissan has taken the car in an interesting new direction, and Nerad will give his take on whether it is a worthy competitor to the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla.
With Labor Day sales on the horizon, we will also discuss if now is a great time to buy a new car. Your current car might well be worth more than you think these days.
