Experts from Toyota were on hand at the Chicago Auto Show 2020 to answer questions from the press about the new Toyota truck lineup, where Toyota is going, and what we can expect. Good information here, presented as it was seen at the show.
We cornered a Chrysler sound system expert and talked about stereo options in the new Pacifica. Turns out, there are four options and one of them has not just a subwoofer, but 20 (yes, 20!) speakers. Check it out!
Kristin and Aaron get into the 2020 Outback with Amelia, the Motorhead Mama, and talk about this all-new rendition of the popular crossover-wagon. Laughter ensues as Amelia confesses the truth about where she lives and Aaron takes one for the team, sitting on the hump. Plus.. there’s puppies.
Kristin teams up with Natasha Nicholes of HousefulOfNicholes to talk about family cars at the Chicago Auto Show. Natasha brings a mom-oriented and humorous perspective on what to look for in a ride and shares her experiences with the vehicles on display at CAS2020.

While at the Chicago Auto Show, we climbed into one of our favorite family vehicles, the 2020 Buick Enclave. We talk about this beautiful three-row crossover and brave the auto show madness to do it. Buick is changing for the better and few things show that better than does the Enclave in its Avenir trim level.
Walking around the new Ford Escape, Kristin joins Teia Collier of Dallas Single Mom (https://dallassinglemom.com/) in describing this vehicle. Teia spent a week with the Escape before the show and was impressed with several of its features and interested in what this base model of the compact crossover includes.
Kristin and I talk about the Chicago Auto Show, what we saw, and why auto shows are awesome for consumers. Looking to buy a car? Wondering what the latest technologies are? Wondering who’s making what kind of vehicle now? Love old cars and weird one-off museum pieces? All of that and more are at the auto show!
In this episode, Kristin and Aaron look at the freshly-unveiled Gladiator Mojave at the Chicago Auto Show.

In this video at the Chicago Auto Show, Aaron talks with Nathan Adlan of The Fast Lane about the all-new powertrain in the 2020 Frontier. Alongisde this new Frontier sits a 2007 model that rolled over 1,000,000 miles on its odometer as a delivery truck for a Chicago-area service. The new powertrain offers more muscle, better economy, and is the first tease of an entirely new Frontier (coming soon). How well did Nissan do? Nathan gives us his opinion and some insider insights.
