EV Smartphone Apps, 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning
With Jill on vacation this week, host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell kick off the show by discussing the unveiling of the Ford F-150 Lightning–the landmark pure-electric version of Ford’s full-size pickup truck. Frank Hanley, Senior Director, Global Automotive Consulting for J.D. Power, joins us to talk about J.D. Power’s benchmark study of OEM electric-vehicle smartphone apps–technology that has become an important part of the EV ownership experience. Tom and Damon run down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a First Spin test-drive review on the new-for-2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness model, and test-drive reviews of the redesigned 2022 Acura MDX and 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks.
