Vehicle Technology And Trends 2020

The 2020 model year vehicles are starting to roll off the assembly line and into showrooms. The I-CAR course, Vehicle Technology And Trends 2020, covers the technology, model releases, and trends. Keeping up-to-date on the 2020 models and features is vital to the blueprinting and repair process.
