America on the Road
First Drives: 2022 Wagoneer & Grand Wagoneer in New York
Two legendary automotive names — Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer — are back in the news and we have all the information you need about the two exciting introductions from Stellantis. The anchor of our coverage of the two all-new models is an exclusive sit-down interview with Jeep VP President of North America Jim Morrison. In the interview, Morrison takes Host Jack Nerad through the background leading up to the introduction of these two traditional full-size SUVs. And he details the innovative technology and forward thinking that went into their creation.
In the road test segment of America on the Road, Co-Host Chris Teague will describe his weeklong test of the BMW 430i convertible. Did his lanky six-foot frame cause his head to protrude uncomfortably from the cabin? More importantly, does the 430i live up to the BMW “Ultimate Driving Machine” moniker? We’ll give you that information and more.
Also, in the road test segment Jack Nerad will describe how the off-road-oriented Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro figured into his family’s recent Texas vacation. Did it off-highway emphasis get in the way of comfortable driving on the highway? And how did the Sequoia deal with the marginal quality of some of the secondary roads near Cedar Creek Lake? He’ll also answer the question how does the Sequoia stand up as a family transport vehicle? Is it wise to opt for the TRD Pro version?
In the news, the Audi e-tron S and e-tron S Sportback will soon arrive on North American shores and Tesla better look out. These two all-electric sport SUVs have to goods to chip away at Tesla Motors’ dominance in the EV segment.
Also in the news, a fresh J.D. Power study indicates that public charging facilities for electric vehicle charging have a lot of room for improvement. Tesla Motors does continue to dominate in this area of the EV world.
The 2022 Grand Wagoneer makes an elegant statement wherever it's parked.
