About this Episode

Its another twisty-turvy episode of the Unnamed Automotive Podcast, so buckle in and get ready! First Benjamin describes how he wasn't on the hype-train for the new 2022 Ford Maverick compact pickup truck. After hearing tons of other journalists, and even Sami talk it up a pedestal, Benjamin still had to try it for himself. Given his love for the Hyundai Santa Cruze, could the Maverick ever measure up? Also what did he put in the small cubbie on the dash? Find out his thoughts on where the Maverick fits in the wide automotive landscape, and whether its worth the money Ford is asking for it.

Then Sami jumps in to explain his contrasting experience with the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5. Everyone said good things, so he went in expecting a world-class vehicle, but does it deliver? What's the deal with modern EVs anyways? Is 300 miles just the plateau of performance and range? What does the horizon of EVs look like.

All of those questions and more are answered in this weeks fun-filled episode, so be sure to listen all the way through (or even multiple times, if you're that into it!)
