Before you answer that, I am pleased to announce the publishing of a new video review on V&R's YouTube channel. This time is for the Honda Ridgeline.

My Thoughts Exactly: 2021 Honda Ridgeline

Many truck folks have dismissed the Honda Ridgeline for years because it is not built like a truck. However, those who have owned a Ridgeline will tell you that it has all of the utility and capability of its competitors in its class.

However, there is one more. Perhaps the most important one among the four (five, if you include the Chrysler Voyager) available to families and businessfolk alike. That would be the 2021 Toyota Sienna. 

My Thoughts Exactly: 2021 Toyota Camry TRD

The result is that it caught my attention. It was enough to be called one of my favorite vehicles of the V&R era. The reason for it was that each and every one of them – five in total – have given me a high level of satisfaction while putting them to the test.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander for the “summer drive to the Midwest Automotive Media Association Summer Drive.” We had some time before I headed towards Chicago, so we made this video review on Mitsubishi’s newest entry in the compact-to-mid-size SUV space. 

My Thoughts Exactly: 2021 Ford Ranger

We must remind ourselves that a pickup truck was originally intended to be put to work. That is regardless of its size and whether it is built on a frame or in a unibody. For example, midsize pickup trucks were originally seen as the perfect size to do the job in more concentrated settings where parking spaces were at a premium.

The subject was easy: The 2022 Kia Carnival. The newest MPV looked like a great subject too shoot, with its bold new looks and Kia's marketing push to not call it a minivan. We showed that there was definitely some design and functional alignment with its larger SUV models.

My Thoughts Exactly: 2021 Nissan Murano

Perhaps this is a good time to even discuss this vehicle. You have heard that inventories are low on new vehicles around the world. The microchip/semiconductor shortage has slowed down and shuttered new vehicle production throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the most popular vehicles that consumers want are simply not there to fulfill a huge demand for them.
