    The 2017 Chicago Auto Show is right around the corner so we decided to try something new. TFLnow goes live! YouTube offers the ability to stream live video to our followers so we decided to give it a shot. In this nearly half-hour long segment we had the opportunity to cover some breaking news in the automotive world, as well as answer a few of your questions about car news as well as TFL.

    The big news that we covered was the announcement of the Dodge Durango SRT. Finally, FCA has brought what is essentially a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and slapped on some Dodge badges and fancy body work. Given a 6.4L V8, this Durango SRT is set to make 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This, plus an 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD, allow this three-row SUV to hit 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds according to FCA. We await this vehicle eagerly.

    Of course we got to talk about many more topics during this live shoot, so to find out what else we discussed, make sure to watch the full video! Also be sure to keep your eyes on TFLnow for more live video streams, and potentially some live coverage of the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.
