These are the most user-friendly and simplest of vehicles and are what those who aren’t necessarily automotive nutjobs (like we are) would probably prefer. We talk about pickup trucks, minivans, SUVs, and more that all fit this definition to us. Watch this episode of Drive Mode and see what we mean!
Ford unveiled the new Mustang Mach-E electric crossover to Texas at the Houston Auto Show. Presenting was Cristina Sanders, who heads up marketing for the new Mustang.
