Main theme: After 16 years, Nissan has finally given its Frontier pickup truck a major update. We debate exactly how much better the new truck will have to be to win over buyers. Then, we share our interesting experiences with an all-new electric vehicle from an all-new brand: the Polestar 2.

Audience Questions
• Should I buy a Lexus GS even though it has been discontinued?
