I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Most importantly, there are new sensors that can warn of an impending jackknife situation.

Jackknifing is a dangerous condition that occurs when a trailer swings into an L or V shape with respect to the truck towing it.

A new Trailer Length Indicator works as an enhanced blind-spot monitoring system. When a driver activates a turn signal, a red overlay is displayed on the video feed on the infotainment screen, extending twice the length of the trailer to help them see what's in their blind spot.
