Season 37 of MotorWeek, television’s longest-running automotive series, will focus on the “Future Car.” The automobile, as we know and use it, continues to morph into the “smart mobility” and “connected ride” that have been so long predicted by futurists. Now that automated features, like emergency braking and blind spot warning, have made their way into many of the most affordable vehicles, they are not only expected to usher in a big jump in safety, but also give us a preview of how totally driverless cars might change our driving habits, and even our desire to drive.
Each week, Host John Davis and the MotorWeek crew will continue their relentless quest to help test, evaluate, and understand the insatiable American appetite for SUVs and trucks. They will also keep reporting on how virtually every car will soon be using some form of electrification to improve fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance.
MotorWeek’s unbiased evaluations highlight the most popular vehicles on the wish lists of new car buyers; showcasing the latest technologies, while grading their performance, practicality, efficiency and safety. From sedans to sport utility vehicles, exotics and economy cars, the team gets comfortable behind the wheel of more than 150 vehicles every year.
MotorWeek’s feature line-up also continues with the return of popular segments like: Goss’ Garage with Master Technician Pat Goss offering know-it-yourself car care advice; Yolanda Vazquez will keep viewers in the know with consumer information and trends in Motor News; Over the Edge Reporter Zach Maskell turns up the fun with a look at the auto world in Overdrive; Feature Reporter Lauren Morrison will deliver information on driving and automotive safety, money-saving advice, as well as the latest technological advances in FYI; while Brian Robinson takes a hands-on look at the two-wheel experience reviewing the newest motorcycles and scooters in Two Wheelin’.
