Guest: Larry Nutson
Bronco Raptor, Ranger Raptor, and the State of Automotive Electrification
Tom and guest host Brendan Appel of the Sons of Speed (Jill is traveling this week) opened the show discussing the off-road ready Ford Bronco Raptor. The hosts agreed that Raptor is pricey, and a little too wide to drive in urban environments, but found much to like about the truck. Tom and Brendan also discussed the coming 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor, the first American-market Raptor version of the midsize pickup.
In the second segment the hosts are joined by Larry Nutson, Chicago Bureau Chief of The Auto Channel. Larry shared his thoughts on where the auto industry is on the path to electrification, and laid out a rough timeline for EV adoption.
In the third segment Brendan was subjected to Tom’s “Maserati or Cocoa Bean” quiz. Tom also talked about the Volvo S60 Recharge, and how the S60 is a better vehicle when electrified. A review of the Volvo S60 will post at Consumer Guide later this week.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast live every Monday at 3:00 PM CT on the TalkZone Radio Network.
