2010 Volvo XC60 – Drive Event
January 29, 2009 – This just in: Volvo Cars North America just announced pricing of the 2010 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD – starting MSRP of $37,200 plus destination charge of $825. That includes leather seating, their innovative City Safety System, power driver’s seat, SIRIUS satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth and the Panorama sunroof.
If that sounds a little pricey, consider this; a similarly equipped Merdeces-Benz GLK is over $40K and the BMW X3 xDrive3.0i is over $42K.
Clearly Volvo is being very aggressive with their pricing and they need to be. They haven’t been immune to the abysmal market conditions and they face stiff competition from the GLK350 and the upcoming Audi Q5.

A Car for Every Gay Stage

Depending on our age and position in life, our cars say a lot about us, our desires and the image we wish to project. Of course, we of the homosexual persuasion have a slightly different set of needs and paths than our straight counterparts.

Below is a small sampling of some family-friendly vehicles assembled by the good folks at Gaywheels.com. Each carries at least six-passengers, is priced within reach of most middle-class households and is built by a gay-friendly company (gay-friendly status is determined by whether or not a company offers domestic partner benefits to both its corporate and factory employees here in the United States).
