In the latest episode of “The Drive with Alan Taylor,” the show kicks off with a discussion between Taylor and automotive journalist BJ Killen about used car prices being at an all-time high and the effects of chip shortages on new car dealerships.

The duo moves on to talk about the impressive Ford F-150 Lightning with 775 pounds of torque, and the luxurious Genesis GV60 electric SUV.

Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader.com, joins the show to chime in on the used car value chat. He notes that people are paying 5 to 17 percent over sticker prices for used cars.

The topic switches gears to electric vehicles and how Volvo will provide its customers with free charging for a limited time the new Volvo XC40 is purchased.

Next to join the show is Chris Bright, co-founder of CollectorPartExchange.com, to talk about the collector car parts market.
