Ford surprised everyone with a shotgun debut of the new 2007 Ford Expedition in
Texas last week, so we begin this podcast talking about the changes to Ford's largest of SUVs, as well as how we
expect the new Expedition to perform in a marketplace that's moving away from large trucks. Volvo also had a busy week,
as we talk about the new 2007 Volvo S80, of which pics were leaked this week ahead of the vehicle's debut in Geneva.
Volvo also has plans to bring its upcoming C30 premium hatchback to the U.S. market and we analyze the various forms
this Swedish pocket rocket could take. Finally, we talk about an editorial by Paul Harris of the U.K. Observer in which
he claims America's love affair with the automobile is dying. Yeah, we don't think it is either. Enjoy.
