Top 5 New Vehicles – LA Auto Show

2009 LA Auto Show

As is customary, I choose the Top 5 vehicles from the show and post them here. Note, these are new vehicles introduced from gay-friendly manufacturers. Some of my colleagues will more than likely point out the absence of the excellent vehicles introduced from Hyundai and Kia. Until they extend their same-sex domestic partner policies throughout their organization, they do not qualify to be in our picks from the auto shows.

Brand Snapshot – Ford


We just posted the second of three Brand Snapshots of LGBT automotive owners. The data is from the first comprehensive LGBT Auto Owners Survey conducted by Sorgenfrei and Gaywheels.com in March 2009. Guess who uses MySpace (yes, I said MySpace!) more?

2010 Ford Flex with EcoBoost – First Drive

2010 Ford Flex EcoBoost

Ford introduced their innovative Flex in 2008 as a 2009 Model (we reviewed it HERE). One of the few criticisms of the Flex was that its base engine could use more power. Ford responded quickly for 2010 with the Ford Flex EcoBoost. Read our contributing editor’s thoughts on the new turbo-charged Flex from Ford.

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Since its launch earlier this year, I’ve been listening to my colleagues gush over the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. The accolades range from amazing mileage figures to the seamless operation of the hybrid system. I’ve even read that it is actually fun-to-drive.
Having experienced the new Toyota Prius, I am beginning to believe that hybrid technology is finally ready for a broader consumer base. The price premium has come down a bit, and the technology is beginning to deliver excellent fuel economy and better driving dynamics. Can Ford actually deliver on both?

2010 Ford Taurus

The Best Ford Taurus Ever, and that’s No Bull! by Joe Tralongo The Taurus brand means a lot of things to a lot of people, at least in the world of family sedans. Some have enough gray hair to remember…

Ford Transit Connect – Preview

2010 Ford Transit Connect

While most of the coverage of the Transit Connect focuses on its utility and appeal to the small business owner, this little box can be configured to carry up to 5 people with loads of room to spare behind the second row of seats. In addition to the small business owners that will rejoice at its size and price, I think there will be a lot of sports enthusiasts (cyclists, skiers, surfers etc.) that will find the commodious and bare-bone interior very attractive for their lifestyles.

2010 Ford Mustang GT

Muscle Car Makeover by Joe LaMuraglia I have to be honest; when I was scheduled to drive a 2010 Ford Mustang GT for five days my expectations were not very high. Sure, the Mustang got a new look with all-new…

2009 Chicago Auto Show

2009 Chicago Auto Show

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that I am not attending 2009 Chicago Auto show media days this year. It is a result of belt tightening here at Gaywheels.com and the fact that we aren’t on “the list” of invitees that the Chicago show flies in every year.
Rather than just read press releases and regurgitate their content, I’ve asked my good friends from TheCarConnection.com if I could re-purpose their reporting and post highlights here with links back to their full insight. Enjoy.
