New-Car Affordability, 2022 Nissan Pathfinder and Frontier

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the recent unveiling of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder midsize SUV and 2022 Nissan Frontier midsize pickup.  Todd Lassa, veteran automotive journalist and founding editor of The Hustings (thehustings.news), joins us to talk about some current auto-industry trends and fill us in on The Hustings–a news website that is designed to deliver straight news and non-partisan political analysis, with liberal and conservative commentary all on one page.  Tom has a “buzzer-style” name-that-vehicle quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX and 2021 Genesis GV80.
