2010 Subaru Outback: There Is Something For Everyone!

2010 Subaru Outback If there is one thing that I have noticed about the Sabaru brand it is the fact that they truly have become a brand for people to respect.  This Japanese car brand is not only one that produces a heck of a good SUV, but it is a brand that is going to last for quite a long time … while most people actually think that this particular brand is not all that good …. I think it rocks!

The coolest thing that I think about the 2010 Subaru Outback is the inside.  The steering wheel looks awesome, the overall design of the inside is beautiful and it has to be said that the design is pretty cutting edge.  There are a lot of things that have been upgraded on the 2010 Subaru Outback and you should check them out – it is cool.

The 2010 Subaru Outback – remember, it is more than just a car, I can promise you that!

2010 Lexus HS 250h Hybrid Is Becoming The Top Choice!

2010 Lexus HS 250h HybridIf there is one thing that I know about this day and age, it is going to be the fact that hybrid cars are hot. With the environment becoming the way that it is right now, people are constantly looking for a way to help it and cut down on their own costs … such as gas.  That is one of the main reasons why the 2010 Lexus HS 250h Hybrid is such a hot car!  This beautiful car is honestly one car that I really and truly love.

The 2010 Lexus HS 250h Hybrid when you get behind the wheel could be a little stiff, however once you get used to the handling, it is definitely a car that you want to drive.  The inside however did shrink in size it seems, this luxury car is slightly narrow, however it is still one of the most comfortable cars that I have ever been in.

I encourage you to check the 2010 Lexus HS 250h Hybrid out for yourself – that way you can really judge how well that you like it!

Yukon Denali SUV: The Hybrid Version!

Yukon Denali SUVOne thing that I have noticed lately is that the Yukon Denali SUV is by far one of the most popular SUV’s on the market.  However – these SUV’s really do suck up a lot of gas and they are truly the gas guzzlers of the world.  Not anymore!  GM has actually switched around the gears in their heads and they have decided to develop a hybrid model of the Yukon Denali SUV.  Which to me, is pretty friggin’ cool!  The hybrid model is going to be one of the coolest SUVs I think in the world.

While there will not be any mechanical changes to the gas-electric drivetrain that’s been available and in use since 2008, they are going to definitely switch up the look a little bit of the Yukon Denali SUV.  The engine however will be 6.0-liter Vortec V8 engine with 332 horsepower and 367 lb-ft of torque and up to a 6,200-pound towing capacity, which is not bad at all!

So if you are the type of person that has been waiting for an SUV with the GM name on it that is a hybrid car, check out the Yukon Denali SUV hybrid!

Speed Limiters linked to GPS fitted to Priuses to test how London Drivers react

Regent Street LondonTransport for London, the agency appointed to manage the trains, subways, busses, and roads of London is conducting an experiment of how drivers will respond to a GPS linked system which will control how hard they step on the gas pedal.

The transport agency used its fleet of Toyota Priuses to give the idea a test. The concept centers on finding out if accidents can be prevented if computers guided by GPS technology connected to a speed database. The computer can take over the throttle of the car in case the driver goes over the set limit.

The study is just conducted in London and the proponents are planning to add some cabs and buses by late 2009 to see how it will affect the transport network.

The motive may be good but some look at it with an ulterior motive with a bureaucracy that is looking into ways so they can control and charge the motorists. Some people are looking into imposed tolls and penalties which may be set by the European Commission.

The Ford 2011 Kuga: It’s Comin’ Soon!

Ford 2011 KugaThe Ford Company is one of the big three that I think is going to outlive everything.  While personally, I am not a fan of Ford cars, I think that the Ford family is an all-American family and I think that they try their hardest to keep up with the demands for technology as they are from an age of no technology.

However, the new Ford 2011 Kuga is going to be one of the leading cars on the market I think.  It is going to be three-doors, which I think is pretty cool and while the BMW X6 is the competition, the Ford 2011 Kuga is going to have a much lower price.

The cool thing about the Ford 2011 Kuga is what is under the hood.  With a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine capacity of up to 178 hp, dual clutch transmission with Powershift and a full drive this car is going to blow everyone out of the water, which I think is the entire point actually!
