In this Skype conversation, Kristin and Aaron talk about the all-new Ford F-150. Why did Ford change its best-selling truck so soon? What’s game changing about it? What new features are added for this new-gen F-150?
Answers to those questions and more in this episode of Drive Mode Show.
Nissan made a lot of changes to the Titan for the 2020 model year. These changes fixed a lot of the beefs we’ve had with the big Titan in the past and make this a more competitive full-sized pickup truck option.
Aaron’s calling it the Jeep Wrangler SRT. Jeep unveiled this concept just ahead of Ford’s unveiling of the all-new Bronco. Kristin loves the idea behind this 450-horsepower Wrangler Rubicon. Will this muscular Wrangler go to production? We think so.
Yes, the title rhymes. Genius. Just like this 2020 Outback is genius. Even if you aren’t a Subaru fan, you’ll probably want to check out the new Outback. It’s far better than it’s ever been and has more comfort and convenience than ever before. There is room for improvement, but it’s only wiggle room at this point. Plus the Onyx package really makes this new Outback look classy. Check it out.

The Toyota Venza returns as a 2021 model in an all-new design. Aaron is glad to see the wagon-like Venza look more appealing and Kristin likes that it’s a hybrid by default. The new Sienna minivan was unveiled at the same time, sharing the same drivetrain and with a surprise nudge-nudge finger point towards Chrysler in its announcement.
Both of these are a big deal for Toyota, whose losing ground in the smaller two-row midsized crossover segment and whose minivan has become aged against newer competition. Both of these seek to rectify those shortcomings and are definitely on point towards doing so.
Find out what we know and what we think about the new 2021 Toyota Venza and the 2021 Toyota Sienna.
