Automotive Trends PODCAST Special NAIAS Edition

     It’s not often that our busy schedules align to allow all three editors to get together in one spot, but the 2011 Detroit Auto Show is an event we don’t miss. Which is why your humble commentators are holed up high above Detroit surrounded by half a Best Buy’s worth of electronics and burning through a small country’s allotment of bandwidth in anticipation of the deluge of auto news coming out of the Motor City over the next few days. We cleared a few minutes from our schedule to talk about what we’re anticipating most from tomorrow’s show and to go on record with who we think will walk away with North American Car and Truck of the Year honors. It’s all after the jump.

      Better grab a hot chocolate and your favorite Snuggie for this one! Not only is it darn cold and chilly in the Motor City, but in this paticular episode of the Automotive Trends PODCAST your humble editors got a bit long winded! Design Editor Gernand gives us a quick history on the Chrysler K-Car before we launch into our pre-auto show discussion. We debate what vehicles will make the finalist round for North American Car and Truck of the Year awards, then deliver a little bit of commentary on the BMW 1-Series M Coupe, Chevrolet’s newest small car name, Buick’s latest endeavor to deliver small car fuel mileage in the fullsize LaCrosse and we also mentioned the Ford Explorer and Volkswagen Golf R. To top it all off we discussed all four of the vehicles we’ve had in the fleet since we last sat behind the mics. Click through to have a listen and check out the impressive photo galleries.

     In this, the thirteenth installment of your ever-growing collection of Automotive Trends PODCASTS, we discover that someone really needs to monitor our crew’s intake of caffeine!  Nevertheless your hard working and ever dedicated autoscribes discuss the merits (or really, the lack thereof) of the SEMA Car Show, discuss whether Volvo’s got what it takes to deliver a 7-Series competitor, voice our displeasure over Gran Turismo 5 being delayed again, debate the 2012 Buick Regal GS’s lack of all-wheel drive and have a moment of silence for the officially departed Pontiac brand. To top it all off we discuss our week spent flogging a yellow 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible. Click through for a listen!     Read more…

      Twelve makes a dozen, and while we aren’t serving up a box of donuts here, your favorite trio of trouble are back behind the mics to discuss the very latest in autodom. Can your car run on E15 without a hiccup? Will the Chrysler 200 be little more than last year’s Sebring with new headlights? Just how much did Hyundai price its potent turbocharged Sonata for? Where did we leave the key to the Nissan Versa? The answers to these questions and more are just two clicks away! Read more…
