Benjamin and Sami have a full week of new car discussions, starting with the 2022 Nissan Frontier, a truckwhose platform has finally caught up with the new drivetrain it received nearly two years ago. The pair discuss whether the Frontier has any chance of competing in this segment, and why it has such insanely heavy steering.
Sami then jumps in to talk about the new 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe, which has gotten larger, wider, and heavier in the name of more power and space. Sami ponders the fate of BMW enthusiasts everywhere, who used to expect a brand with a focus on performance over outright horseppower. Then it's time to talk about the new reveals from the 2022 LA Auto Show, along with their goofy names, weird press releases, and alleged 'dolphin-safe'-ness.
