EV Pickup Trucks, Cadillac Pares Dealers

Host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing how Cadillac is paring down its nationwide dealership count as it prepares to become a pure-EV brand. (Co-host Jill is out on vacation this week.) Paul Strauss, publisher of the popular websites The Awesomer, Technabob, and the auto-themed 95octane, joins us to talk about the forthcoming wave of pure-electric pickup trucks–including the Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado EV, and the Tesla Cybertruck. Tom has a “which sold better?” quiz for Damon and Paul, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the 2021 Ford Bronco Black Diamond.
