2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime First Impressions; Ford's Unveiling of the 2021 F-150 | Talking Cars #262 1

This week we share our first impressions of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime, a plug-in version of the hybrid, and talk about the ups and downs of the electrification of the RAV. We discuss the newly unveiled 2021 Ford F-150 and all the changes, including a hybrid powertrain. Also, we answer audience questions about which factor is most important (mileage or age) when purchasing a used car, the mechanics of heating and cooling in electric cars, and could obstructing the A-pillar (with a dash cam power cord) potentially affect the side curtain airbag.
