New engines and different powertrains are on the menu today on the Unnamed Automotive Podcast. The show starts with Benjamin describing a long-wheelbase, full-size SUV, the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer L. The bigger Grand Wagoneers introduce with a completely new engine, the 3.0-liter twin turbo six-cylinder "Hurricane." How does this new powertrain feel in the big SUV and can it take on such a huge vehicle? Benjain has all the answers along with some surprising revelations about the newly updated Jeep.
Then Sami chimes in with his explanation of the 2024 Lincoln Corsair PHEV, which is a barely mentioned luxury compact crossover. While it's similar to the Escape PHEV, it gains all-wheel drive and other fancy features, but loses the value packaging of the Ford. How does that impact the overall image of the Lincoln plugin? Sami also explains how Lincoln fares these days in the world of electrified luxury.
Then the guys address some listener comments and questions about infotainment systems, pause buttons and drive mode buttons. Thanks for listening!!
