This week on the podcast it was all things LA Auto Show, and my co-hosts Tom Appel and Damon Bell carry the bulk of the show, since I was calling in from LA.

We spend a significant amount of time discussing the reveal of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. While the vehicle itself is pretty spectacular -- especially in the GT form (think 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque !!) -- the name has been somewhat controversial. We discuss the looks, the name and what it's like to be a passenger in a first ride-along.

We cover other big reveals at the show including the Toyota Prius Prime, Kia Seltos and the Land Rover Range Rover Defender.

You can listen below, and afterwards, comment below on what you think of the Mustang Mach-E name.

Later this week, look for a post on the three vehicles launched in LA that will matter for Chicago.
