Ford’s COVID-19 Efforts, 2020 Infiniti QX80
Broadcast date: April 19, 2020
Guest: Mike Levine
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start the show by discussing the worrisome increase in speeding and reckless driving incidents, now that many American highways have very little traffic as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns. Next, we talk about our test-drive experiences with the extra-large 2020 Infiniti QX80 SUV. Mike Levine, North American Product Communications Manager for Ford Motor Company, calls in to bring us up to speed on Ford’s various efforts and initiatives to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. Tom has a tricky quiz on vintage and recent Volkswagens for Damon and Jill, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog–including a profile of the all-but-forgotten Chevrolet Electrovette concept vehicle.
The Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast is broadcast every Sunday on Chicago’s WCPT AM 820 at 1:00 PM CST. It is available as a podcast shortly thereafter.
