Comeback of the Manual Transmission, All-New Lincoln Nautilus
Brendan Appel sits in for Jill this week, and discussed a pair of articles he wrote regarding the survival of the manual transmission. Brendan argues that carmakers have hastened the demise of stick shift by limiting availability and underestimating demand. Brendan notes the surprising popularity of stick shift on a number of new sporty offerings. In the second segment Brendan and Tom welcome Monica Gorgas, brand manager for the redesigned Lincoln Nautilus midsize crossover. Monica walked the hosts through the changes to the premium crossover, including Tom's favorite: Digital Scenting. The new Nautilus goes on sale early next year. Brendan is subjected to Tom's "Cars of 1980" quiz, including a bonus question regarding bad movies, such as Spanglish and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
