    Kicking off the show, Autotrader Executive Editor, Brian Moody, reviews the Dodge Durango SRT – Dodge’s relatively inexpensive entry into the performance SUV category – and fills us in on a slew of ‘forgotten’ hybrid vehicles that are right for the money.

Changing lanes, JoshCAR Hollywood Car Consultant, Josh Hancock, describes his trip through the Henry Ford Museum and his experience with the Ford Edge ST before filling us in on the utilitarian Bollinger B2 all-electric truck. Up next, Author of “Ludicrous: The Unvarnished Story of Tesla Motors”, Ed Niedermeyer, exposes some of the skeleton’s in Elon Musk and Tesla’s closet. Closing out the show, Automotive Journalist, BJ Killeen, compares and contrasts the values of Tesla Motors and Toyota vehicles and explains how Toyota might actually be leading the charge on a green future.
