On this week’s episode, Jill Ciminillo and I are discussing Volvo’s electrification announcement and what it may mean for consumers. We address the question: Is the internal combustion engine going away? Also, I talk about playing in the dirt with John Deere and Chevy. Then, freelance automotive journalist Seth Parks joins the show to talk about off-roading in San Diego and how a diesel powered Ram Powerwagon makes complete sense. Finally, Jill and I wrap up with the SUVs we have been currently testing: Audi Q7, Land Rover Discovery, Chevrolet Suburban. Tim also goes on record about his hatred of blacked-out packages. All that and more!
