Kristin and Aaron play a game of Truths and Lies with a couple of humdingers. Kristin has the Charger Hellcat Widebody in her corner, hitting Aaron with questions about it that he can’t Google for answers. Aaron returns with a 500X with some zingers that befuddle. Whose got answers? Lets find out.
In this walkthrough, I get into the 2020 Lexus NX in its 300 F Sport package. This is a great small crossover for the price and audience it’s intended for. The F Sport, however, does screw it up by making the ride rough without adding a lot of “sport.” In any other package, though, this is a great little crossover-SUV. Check it out.
Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at an event like the RedlineIce2020, where we took cars into the snow and ice to test their capabilities and safety? One of the people behind the scenes at a lot of automotive events and on YouTube channels like ours is photographer Nathan Leach-Proffer. Find out what his job entails, how much work is involved, and how he built his master-level skillset and honed the tools he uses to get the job done.
Nathan is a quiet mannered, laid-back guy with little fanfare for himself. Yet he’s photographed thousands of cars and trucks and his work has appeared on television, in print, and online. He’s one of the most well-respected automotive photographers in the business. Check him out at http://www.speed-photos.com/
At the #RedlineIce2020 event, we drove several vehicles from varied manufacturers on the snow and ice in Colorado to test safety systems. One of the people behind that event was Brian Peterson, a professional racer turned instructor who designed the courses we used to test those safety systems. And have a little fun. Because, well, sliding through the snow is a lot of fun when your sleigh has 300 horsepower..
Brian walks us through the process of planning the course, what they did to test their plans, and what kind of music he cranks while doing this sort of thing. Check it out!

In this video, Aaron answers a question from a teenager that wants to know what kind of big changes are happening in automotive right now. Changes that are changing the industry. Heidi’s question results in a good-sized list of things that are trending and making big waves, industry-wide.
Both Aaron and Kristin talk about the new Jeep pickup truck, the Gladiator. After having driven most of the renditions available for this truck and having spent a fair amount of time with it, Drive Mode is in agreement that the 2020 Gladiator is legendary.
