Hummer Returns, 2020 Auto Industry Insights
Broadcast date: January 19, 2020
Guest: Michelle Krebs
Host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start off the show with a discussion of General Motors’ recently leaked plans to revive its Hummer brand name on a pure-electric GMC pickup truck. Next, we chat about one of our recent Consumer Guide test-fleet vehicles: the 2020 Lincoln Corsair AWD Reserve. Michelle Krebs of Cox Automotive and the AutoTrader Group calls in to give us the scoop on some of Cox’s automotive-industry insights for the 2020 model year and a few of the most important developments and trends of 2019. Tom stumps Damon with another tricky car color name quiz, and Damon runs through the recently published articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog. We wrap up the podcast with a discussion of fastback-roofed SUVs such as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, BMW X6 and the departed Acura ZDX.
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.
