Then, we are joined by Jamie Butters, Executive Editor for Automotive News, and "The High-Tech Texan", Michael Garfield, who discuss technology in the automotive industry as well as share insight on what advancements are in store for vehicles in the future.

Butters and Garfield also weigh in on everything from the giant leap in safety technology built into cars and trucks, the expansion of electric vehicles, and when we can expect autonomous cars to become more available.
