Today at High Gear Media: Toyota, Electric Cars and 300

August 11, 2010

Toyota recalls, the electric-car race, and the 2012 Chrysler 300 -- it's all here today at High Gear Media:

The 2011 Ford F-150 gains four new engine options, everything from a base V-6 to a turbo EcoBoost six and a pair of V-8s. Pickups are back...and better than ever. [TheCarConnection]

Can one million Toyota owners be wrong? Not all of them--just the ones who believe they're the victims of unintended acceleration. [TheCarConnection]

The rich men of the Middle East are tormenting poor Londoners with their supercars, who are very nearly forbidden from driving. Just like the rich women of the Middle East. [TheCarConnection]

Get ready for the 2012 Chrysler 300. Spy shots prove it's a heavy refurb of the current car--but that's a good thing, right? [MotorAuthority]

How does the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze get that 40-mpg fuel-economy rating? Active shutters. And no, they're not like those fancy plantation shutters you have on back-order at Home Depot. [GreenCarReports]

The 2011 Nissan Juke has a pricetag--and it's up there near $20,000. [FamilyCarGuide]

Trying to escape the law in a Ford Escape? You may want to try something a little...faster. [FamilyCarGuide]

What do Trace Adkins and BC powders have in common? Well there's NASCAR, now. We also suspect Bud Lite. [SocialCarNews]

Chico Rodriquez and Gomer Pyle have finally gotten their due among TV's top 5 car mechanics. Who's your pick? [AllCarAdvice]

Perhaps now that she's bought a Lamborghini, Tila Tequila will finally disappear back into the woodwork. You can thank the Simi Valley for all of us, but wash your hands, please. [CelebsAndCars]

Finally, which country will win the electric-car race, the U.S. or China? We know who our money's on. Hit us and put it on their tab. [PoliticsAndCars]
