2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid Test Results; What Classic Vehicles Should Become EVs? | Talking Cars #328


This week, we share our test results of the 2021 Ford F-150 and F-150 hybrid pickup trucks, comparing the performance of the two different powertrains and some of their more interesting features. We also talk about the all-electric 2023 Genesis GV60, including its eye-catching styling, motor options, and predicted electric range. A dealer told someone in our Talking Cars audience, “You can’t rustproof an EV.” Is that true? We do some mythbusting, and share tips on how to avoid falling into sales traps at the dealer. Other topics include: Whether some lane keeping assist systems can be overly aggressive; what safety features electronic shifters offer; and we pick which classic vehicles we’d like to see brought back as an EV.
