2023 Lexus RX, The End of Jaguar?
Tom and guest host Brendan Appel of the Sons of Speed opened the show with the news that Honda is addressing issues with the engine stop/start system on some of its models. The conversation turned to Jaguar, and the British luxury carmaker’s plan to trim its dealership count by offering dealers dualled with Land Rover stores additional allocations of hot-selling Land Rover models in exchange for relinquishing their Jaguar franchises. In the second segment, guest Carly Bly of Lexus talked about the redesigned 2023 Lexus RX, and hinted at product news to come. Stay tuned. Brendan was subjected to Tom’s “1923 Ford Model T vs. 2023 Porsche 911” quiz, though Tom forgot the bonus question. (You can see the bonus question at the Car Stuff Podcast Facebook page.)
To close the show, Tom recounted his time evaluating the 2023 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel pickup (almost sporty?), and Brandon discussed the Sons of Speed’s latest review, a test drive of the 2023 Nissan Z.
