Rank #3: Ep. 129 – From Basic to Supercharged
This week’s garage includes the gamut of rides from mainstream compacts to luxury sedans and even a $100,000 Mustang. Rebecca had the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid which is a great family hauler and the big Genesis G90 sedan. Sam meanwhile had the new Toyota Corolla XSE which is finally more than basic transportation and the Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line. He also did a first drive in the new Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang. Dan had to get by with a Volkswagen Golf SE. In topics, after failing to work out a deal with Renault, Fiat Chrysler is hooking up with PSA, and Mini prices the new Cooper SE EV surprisingly reasonably.

Rank #7: Ep 130 – Not Your Grandfather’s Mustang
This week the crew has a range of crossovers and one more roadster before winter hits the northern part of the country (at least in the northeast, Sam just got 8 inches in Detroit). Sam has been driving the Volvo XC60 T6, Dan tries out the new Ford Escape and Rebecca split her time between the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and Fiat 124 Spider. In the news, we discuss a Ford Raptor being forceably removed from blocking an EV charger, Tata searching for electrification partners for Jaguar Land Rover and the official name of Ford’s new EV, the Mustang Mach-E. We wrap up with a couple of listener questions.
