Talking Cars 328 Ford F 150 Hybrid


Main theme: We begin this week’s podcast by looking at the Genesis GV60 2023, an all-new small electric SUV from Hyundai’s luxury brand, which shares a platform with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. We’re intrigued by some of the unique features of the GV60, including facial recognition to unlock the vehicle, a fingerprint reader to turn it on, and Boost and Drift modes. We’re not so thrilled with its modest estimated range of 230 to 280 miles depending on configuration.

Conducted this week: Ford F-150 and F-150 Hybrid 2021

AQuestions from the audience:

  • Which out-of-production car would you like to see brought back as an EV?
  • I think Genesis placed the GV80’s touchscreen so far away from the driver on purpose as a safety feature so owners are less likely to use it while driving. What is CR’s opinion?
  • The electronic gearshift on my 2020 BMW X7 had a panic recently – it thought it was still in Drive mode even though I had moved it to Park. How safe are these electronic gear levers? And shouldn’t there be a way for an owner to reset a vehicle’s ECU if it is blinking?
  • A dealership recently told me that you can’t protect an electric vehicle from rusting. Is it true? Or should I never set foot in this concession again?
  • From the videos I’ve watched online, it appears that some lane-keeping assist systems are aggressive enough to keep a car centered in a lane, making it difficult for the driver to gain control of the road. direction to avoid potholes or other road debris. Is it easier than it sounds to bypass these systems and take back control or should I be concerned?
