Infiniti QX55, Nissan Xterra Revival?

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the recent reports of Nissan dealers asking Nissan to bring back its off-road-ready  Xterra SUV.  We also talk about the discontinuation of Kia’s Cadenza large sedan and K900 flagship luxury sedan for the 2021 model year. Jeff Pope, Group Vice President, Infiniti Americas, joins us to talk about the new-for-2021 Infiniti QX55 crossover SUV, and the Infiniti brand in general. Tom has a tricky fuel-economy quiz for Damon and Jill–complete with a bonus question about mushroom varieties–and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the all-new 2021 Kia K5 and a look at the brands of Stellantis.
