Kristin and Aaron talk about the Chicago Auto Show, what we saw, and why auto shows are awesome for consumers. Looking to buy a car? Wondering what the latest technologies are? Wondering who’s making what kind of vehicle now? Love old cars and weird one-off museum pieces? All of that and more are at the auto show!
Tesla recently told the California Air Resources Board (CARB) that the Cybertruck will be a heavy duty (aka “3/4 ton”) truck. What does this mean? A fan asks about this and wonders if it means that the Cybertruck will be competitive with other HD pickups. Here’s the straight juice on what EPA classifications for trucks actually means and why it’s not what you probably think it is.
In this video at the Chicago Auto Show, Aaron talks with Nathan Adlan of The Fast Lane about the all-new powertrain in the 2020 Frontier. Alongisde this new Frontier sits a 2007 model that rolled over 1,000,000 miles on its odometer as a delivery truck for a Chicago-area service. The new powertrain offers more muscle, better economy, and is the first tease of an entirely new Frontier (coming soon). How well did Nissan do? Nathan gives us his opinion and some insider insights.

Following up on the interior walkthrough of the X6 last week, I get into the bigger X7 in a much higher trim level (it has an “M” in it). Going up in price by about half again, the X7 offers a ton of goodness for the power SUV lover. Here’s every detail plus a few references back to the X6 for comparison.
Touring the Chicago Auto Show with Fadra Nally of All Things Fadra, Aaron finds out that orange and red clash, that Elvis had good taste, and that sometimes bling isn’t everything. Maybe there’s more to life than horsepower and torque?

In this shaky cam walkthrough, I get into the 2020 BMW X6 in the xDrive format. There’s a lot to like about this Bimmer, but a few things might be missing for the price being paid. See if you can spot them.
