This week we have Senior Editor Brett T. Evans, Senior Editor Jeff Perez, and News Editor Chris Smith.
Going alphabetically by automaker, Perez is driving the Audi Q8 Sportback E-Tron. This recently updated electric SUV has the powertrain and interior from the standard Q8 E-Tron but with a sleeker-looking body. Depending on the selected powertrain, the EV can produce 335 horsepower and 490 pound-feet, 402 hp and 490 lb-ft, or 496 hp and 718 lb-ft.
Evans is behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison. It features modifications from American Expedition Vehicles that include stamped steel bumpers with recovery hooks and integrated steps. It rides on 18-inch wheels with 33-inch tires. Plus, there are five skid plates underneath.
Smith doesn't have a new car to discuss. However, he has an interesting fleet that includes a non-running Ford Taurus SHO, an SN95 Mustang, and a Subaru Forester. Expect him to bring up at least one of them.
A major reason we do The Test Car Happy Hour every week is to answer your questions. So join us during the stream and let our talented editors share their experiences with you. They're ready to help you.
