We wanted to make sure everyone had the latest Autoblog Podcast to listen to while travelling to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving dinner, so here we are with episode #48. We begin the podcast discussing the impact of Ford delaying the delivery of the Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers
, which leads us to speculate on what the automaker will be showing its employees and retirees at a special sneak preview
of its future lineup at the end of the month. There were also a few significant leaks from the automakers ahead of the upcoming auto show
season, with the Jeep Trailhawk, Chrysler Nassau
and Chevy Malibu
all showing up on the internet ahead of taking their spots on the turntable at the L.A. and Detroit auto shows. One piece of news that seemed to resonate with readers this week was the realization that potentially half of OnStar's
current subscriber base could see their service turned off in 2008
thanks to an FCC ruling made way back in 2002. We discuss that topic and finish up by gushing over the Giugiaro Mustang
concept that was caught filling up at an Italian gas station
last week. All good stuff, so enjoy the show and don't eat too much turkey this week.
