José Rodríguez Jr

Staff Writer


– José is from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, which is full of single-cab pickups driven by people who inherited a love of trucks from their families. José’s own love of trucks is more nostalgic than practical, and he’s been in a love-hate relationship with his daily driver BMW E36 for over a decade.

– José is a native Spanish speaker who loves to argue with Siri and other digital assistants who claim to be bilingual. His preliminary testing shows that they are woefully bad at code-switching. 

– José’s byline has appeared on Jalopnik, Road & Track, and now The Drive. His areas of expertise include pickups and the off-roading segment, as well as auto manufacturing in Mexico and other overseas markets.
