In the latest episode of “The Drive with Alan Taylor” Brian Moody, executive editor of Auto Trader.com, shares the best new cars for 2022. The Acura MDX Luxury SUV, Ford 150 Lightning, Ford Maverick and so much more. They debate whether or not the Ford Maverick is considered to be a car or a truck because it has a truck bed. They compare it to the El Camino.
Alan shares his thoughts on self-driving vehicles and how it’s taking away the fun in the mechanics of driving a vehicle.
