Still plays the radio well, though.

Bolt EV only has usb, or streaming via Sat, or BT, or Android Auto/Car Play. I wish it had a CD player still. Get off my lawn.
SSPU is post cassette era, their newest album is the only one of theirs available on cassette. The album/tour was heavily influenced by the 80s. The band covered Martika's Toy Soldier last year. I don't even own a cassette player. I purchased the vinyl single of the Toy Soldier song (trying to win an autographed version of it) and I don't have a vinyl player either. I still have some VHS tapes in the basement that I'm holding onto.

Also "Record Player".

We used to buy singles on 45's when I was a kid, maybe even the Martika song when it first came out.

Weird thing for a virgin to keep saying about himself.

The only thing you probably care about, you already know; hybrid is FWD only/ AWD is only in the gas version.

Technically it was FWD until they turned it around and made it the RWD portion of the 2005-2012 Acura RL which introduced the SHAWD Super Handling AWD. Then you could legitimately say **** AWD.

His scores are so stupid since all cars are judged against every other car, no matter the catagory. The Bronco Sport does 0-60 in the low 6 seconds, way faster than any other regular compact SUV (Rav4 Prime is 5.8), and he gave it a 3 out of 10.

So what is out there for awd family haulers? Toyota Sienna, Ford Flex, Vw sportwagen. Any other players? Edit. I guess there are a few Subaru options, but they seem to have ringlands issues

Why do you need AWD? Are you looking for minivans or anything that will hold 7 people?

Flex - If memory serves the Flex is being discontinued or has been discontinued as of 2020.

Sienna -

Odyssey - Not AWD but the right pick.

Explorer -

Traverse -

Pilot -

Suburban -

Yukon / Tahoe -

Whatever the Subaru stretched Outback is called -

2021 Pacifica has a non-hybrid AWD variant as per just a few posts up!

Sequoia
Land Cruiser / LX if your 3rd row peeps are midgets and you like spending money

Subaru big-Outback is the Ascent

VW's big one is the Atlas

All 2021 and up Siennas are hybrid. Nor sure if all are AWD, though.

I know AWD is an option, if not standard. Toyota is marketing the 2021 Sienna hard towards the camping/off roading crowd

If it's the same AWD system used in the Highlander Hybrid, it's okay for snow and gravel. You would not want to take it anywhere you wouldn't take a normal 2wd vehicle.

That system is more for helping when you pull off in the grass at the local soccer field after a heavy rain and all the sedans have their front wheels stuck in a muddy rut.

Seems reasonable. That said, there's like 5" of ground clearance so how far off road could you really go LOL.

Certainly much easier to use an electric motor for rwd than run a prop shaft.

Not sure who is really trying to take a Sienna out on the trails. Why would a minivan need AWD for anything other than slippery surfaces?

Minivan-bros can offroad with Ed and his Telluride's identical breakover angle
