Jaguar announced changes to the 2022 I-Pace electric SUV. Chevy announced a new 2022 Corvette special edition.
Jeep announced prices for the new Grand Cherokee L, and we’ll have a full review of that vehicle for you next week. This week’s car review covers the redesigned 2022 Nissan Pathfinder, which represents a big improvement over the previous model.
