End of Internal-Combustion Engines, New Wave of Off-Road-Ready SUVs
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing the latest wave of off-road-focused SUVs and sub-brands such as Ford’s Timberline, Honda’s Trailsport, and Subaru’s Wilderness. John McElroy, host and editorial director of the Autoline family of automotive-industry newscasts, joins us to talk about his prediction/prescription for the forthcoming “sunset” of mainstream internal-combustion engines. Tom has a “manual or no manual?” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the redesigned-for-2021 BMW M4 Competition Coupe.
