Talkin’ Trucks: 2023 New York Auto Show updates, range for electric trucks

Though not explicitly stated, all the topics for this episode were based off news from the 2023 New York Auto Show. Publisher Tim Esterdahl and Managing Editor Jill Ciminillo kicked things off with a long conversation about what range would be enough for an electric truck. This conversation was sparked by the details released on the production version of the 2025 Ram 1500 REV. Ram says this new electric truck will get up to 500 miles of range. That led into conversations about what version of the truck would get 500 miles of range, how much it would cost and what a range extender would look like on this truck.

Other 2023 New York Auto Show topics include the 2024 Jeep Wrangler updates, the all-new 2024 Hyundai Kona and the production version of the Kia EV9 electric three-row SUV.

The show ended with answering some viewer questions and a lot of talk about favorite engines and the worst engines we’ve driven.

Esterdahl and Ciminillo do weekly livestreams on YouTube, which are projected out to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. In 2023, they are switching to a Monday/Tuesday schedule at 8 p.m. EST, so be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel and follow them on social media for the upcoming live episode timing and topics.
