2022 Nissan Frontier, Microchip Shortage

Randy Dale, Senior Manager, Product and Advanced Planning at Nissan, joins us to discuss the redesigned-for-2022 Nissan Frontier midsize pickup. Tom has a “name the fake trim level” quiz for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a First Spin review of the new-for2022 Infiniti QX55 compact SUV and a look back at the funky American Motors AM Van concept vehicle.
