2020 Pickup-Truck Reliability, Hyundai’s IONIQ EV Brand

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing Hyundai’s launch of IONIQ, its dedicated EV brand. We also discuss our test-drive experiences with the new-for-2020 Cadillac CT4 compact sport sedan. Tim Esterdahl, founder and executive editor of Pickup Truck + SUV Talk, joins us to chat about vehicle reliability and innovative features. Tom has a quiz for Damon and Jill on various pickup-truck facts, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2021 Toyota Venza.
