Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing Toyota’s all-new, hybrid-only 2021 Sienna minivan, which is set to go on sale soon. Ed Kim, Vice President, Industry Analysis at AutoPacific, joins us for a talk about California’s recently announced electric-vehicle mandate for 2035. Tom has a quiz on tires for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including our Consumer Guide First Spin reviews of the redesigned Sienna and the outrageous new Ram 1500 TRX off-road pickup.
