Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and a Final Four of Automakers

In this episode of the Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Consumer Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski. We start with news about the Lotus Eletre and Ferrari Purosangue. These two high-end crossovers are followed by discussions about Stellantis’ new inline-six engines and a plethora of Hummer EV orders.

Next, we’ll try something we’ve never tried before: ranking automaker blue bloods. We took inspiration from the current NCAA tournament, with Duke, North Carolina, Villanova and Kansas—very traditional blue-blooded basketball programs—to name our Final Four automakers. Let us know if you agree or disagree with our choices and what your definition of a blue blood car brand is.

We conclude with a discussion of the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk that Jeremy has been driving all week.
