Welcome back to Rambling About Cars. This week, Bruce and Smith are joined by Motor1.com editor Jeff Perez as a special guest.

The virtual Consumer Electronics Show was this week, and we use the debut of the Mercedes-Benz MBUX Hyperscreen system at the event as a hook for discussing modern infotainment tech. In general, we're not big fans.


Then, the release of a fantastic Ford Maverick image leads to a discussion about whether we should qualify it as a 'ute. Then, we generally muse about car-based pickups, including our favorites.

Look for new episodes of Rambling About Cars every Friday. You can find the video version on YouTube and audio in a variety of places like Apple Podcasts and Spotify. If you have a moment, then like, subscribe, and review because it makes the algorithms expose the show to more people.

If you have feedback, comments, or questions, contact the hosts at podcast@motor1.com. We might even read it on the show.
