Whether you drive a car, need a car, or just occasionally bum a ride with friends, you’ve come to the right place. Join the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive as they break down everything that’s going on in the auto world. New-car reviews, shopping tips, driving green, electric cars, classic cars, and plenty of great guests. This is the Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast.
2020 Toyota Supra, Jeep Plug-in Hybrids
Broadcast date: January 5, 2020
Guest: Paul Herrold
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show with a discussion of Jeep’s forthcoming plug-in-hybrid Wrangler, Compass, and Renegade models, and their sub-brand name: 4xe. We then discuss Jill’s recent test vehicle: the 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited. Paul Herrold, Chief Editor at Sons of Speed, joins us in-studio to talk about his video review of the 2020 Toyota Supra. Tom has another “punny” car-name/movie-title quiz, and this time he comes up with a couple stumpers. Damon gives a run-down of this week’s articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog. In recognition of the new Supra’s BMW/Toyota parentage, we recall other vehicles that were products of automaker partnerships to close out the show.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST. It is available as a podcast shortly thereafter.
