F-150 Tremor, Detroit Auto Show Moves Again, How EV Charging Station Locations are Chosen
Jill is in studio this week. Jill opened the show sharing some sad news. Her father died over the holiday break. You can read Jill's tribute to her dad by clicking on the link in this week's podcast update post on the Car Stuff Podcast Facebook Page. Tom, who is driving a Cummins-diesel-powered Ram pickup this week, noted that he had forgotten about how diesel engines require some glow-plug warm-up time before starting in cold weather. Note that as the show was recorded, it was -12 degrees outside the TalkZone studio in Palatine, Illinois. The conversation turned to the Detroit Auto Show, which is returning to January for 2025. This after a three-year hiatus from that timeslot, and missing 2020 due to COVID-19. Jill shared her impressions of the 2024 Ford F-150 Tremor, a new trim level designed for off-road use. Jill spent considerable time behind the wheel of the truck, driving it from Chicago to Indianapolis during the holidays. In the second segment Jill and Tom welcome Jim Hurless, Global Real Estate Leader for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure at CBRE. Jim shared some fascinating insights as to how EV charging station locations are determined, how much it costs to install an EV charger, and what CBRE is doing about charger reliability. Great conversation. Jill is subjected to Tom's "Which Sold Better in 2023" quiz in the third segment. Jill also ruined Tom's round of guessing as to what a company called ZeroMold might do. Tom's guesses were better than the truth.
