On this week’s show, “father knows best” and in this case the patriarch we’re talking to is none other than the “father” of the very successful Ford EcoBoost technology. Dan Kapp is the Director of Ford Powertrain Research and Advanced, and we’ll be asking him what’s next for EcoBoost and what other powertrain goodies he’s working on for the Blue Oval. As you can guess, we’ll be getting into the news of the week including management shifts for Audi and Infiniti and the move of Road & Track magazine from its historic home in Newport Beach, California to Ann Arbor, Michigan. To discuss these topics and much more, John McElroy is joined by Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Alisa Priddle from the Detroit Free Press.

On the docket this week: is the Toyota sales recovery the real deal? Chevrolet drops the Super Bowl and teams up with Manchester United (they play the other kind of football) to hopefully cement the bowtie as an international brand. Plus, we’ll take a stroll down memory lane to remember the Chevrolet Corvair, the classic in the studio today. To discuss these topics and way, way more, Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, is joined by Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production and Scott Burgess from AOL Autos.
