2019 Lexus ES300h

Open in playerListen on);
My name is Jordan Golson and I've been writing about cars and technology for more than a decade. This is where my car reviews live! PRNDL is hidden in front of your eyes in just about every car you drive, down on the shifter: Park; Reverse; Neutral; Drive; Low. This shift order was set by regulation decades ago (thanks in part to Ralph Nader) and is one of those things that we interact with regularly but never think about. It rhymes with "Pringle." PRNDL is also my home for car reviews, news, and more. I try to give my thoughts on new vehicles in a fun and entertaining way, while not diving too deep into specs and numbers (there are plenty of other folks for that!).
Episode details

As Deep Thought told us, forty-two is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. It's also the real-world fuel economy we managed out of the Lexus ES300h without even trying — the highest available in any plugless luxury vehicle. That, plus the quiet indulgence one gets in any Lexus, means this could be the best luxury commuter car on the market. Even with that horrid trackpad you have to use to control the infotainment system.
