A brand-new Range Rover doesn’t come along every day — in fact 10 years is more like it — but a new Range Rover has just been introduced and we have the inside story. Our special guest in this week’s episode of America in the Road is Jaguar Land Rover Product Marketing Director Finbar McFall. The new flagship of the Land Rover/Range Rover lineup takes the model in a significantly more sophisticated direction. Host Jack Nerad recently had the chance to get the details on that from McFall in this week’s interview.
If you’re in the market for a battery-electric pickup truck, first we’d like to know why. And, next, you should have an amazing range of choices in the next couple of years. We’ll discuss the details of the recently announced newcomers in what will suddenly be a very crowded segment. Does electric power make sense for a pickup? Host Jack Nerad and Co-Host Chris Teague will debate that in the news segment.
Also in the news segment, the nominee for head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has vowed to get to the bottom of the safety allegations and investigations that continue to dog Tesla Motors. Will the outspoken Elon Musk find himself and his company in deeper trouble with the feds?
In the road test segment, Chris Teague will be giving of his thoughts on the 2022 Hyundai Venue crossover SUV. The small crossover lacks all-wheel-drive, so how did it fare in the recent Maine snowfall? And is Teague still six feet tall?
Also in the road test segment, Jack Nerad had the opportunity to drive one of the most unusual vehicles available in the U.S. market this year…or any year. The all-electric Mazda MX-30 has sneaked its way into the U.S. market via California, and we’ll have the surprising details for you.
