Creating Car Colors, 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing the recently unveiled 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz–a genre-bending compact SUV/pickup “Sport Adventure Vehicle” that is slated to go on sale this summer. La Shirl Turner, Director of the Advanced Color and Materials Design Studio at Stellantis, joins us to discuss how she and her team develop paint colors and interior trim for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles. Damon has a Mopar car-color quiz for Tom and Jill, and Tom runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including test-drive reviews of the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 and Nissan Leaf SL Plus.
