Two big product decisions broke over the last 24 hours: Acura decided to bring the TSX Sport Wagon to the United States by late 2010 as a 2011 model; and Chevrolet revealed that it would delay the Cruze, its replacement for the Cobalt, by at least three months.

On the new-car front, our own Marty Padgett is soon to be headed out to Laguna Seca for a stint behind the wheel of the gullwing Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar. Ford has an EcoBoost-powered V-6 hotrod headed to SEMA, and Motor Authority's spy photographers have nabbed both the next-gen Chrysler 300 and the 2010 BMW M3 facelift in testing.

GreenCarReports has a look at the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid and all of its genre-bending features, complete with the requisite nod to the "purists" who'd rather see Porsche build mopeds than hybrid SUVs.

The High Gear Media network of sites continues to grow, and the focused niche content you can find there has something for everyone, from a look at the Honda Insight's run to the top of the Consumer Report's Most Reliable list to info on the Hendrick Motorsports 25th Anniversary Camaro SS.
