Host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start the show by discussing their recent test drives of the sportiest model in Toyota’s midsize car lineup: the Camry TRD. (Co-host Jill Ciminillo is out on assignment this week.)  Sam Fiorani, Vice President of Global Vehicle Forecasting for AutoForecast Solutions, joins us to give his insight on the current state of the Chinese auto industry. Tom has an engine-displacement quiz for Damon and Sam, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a test-drive review of the Ford F-150 Raptor.
