2020 Buick Encore GX, Cadillac Super Cruise Subscriptions
Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by talking about Cadillac being on the cusp of charging a subscription fee for its Super Cruise hands-free-driving system. We also discuss Ford Motor Company’s recently announced CEO switch, as Jim Farley steps in to take the the reins from Jim Hackett. Buick Marketing Manager Rob Peterson, joins us to talk about the 2020 Buick Encore GX subcompact SUV, and Buick’s transition to an all-SUV lineup. Tom has a quiz for Damon and Jill on average-transaction prices, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including a test-drive review of the 2020 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X.
