When it comes to technology, you’re either an “early adopter” or you’re a “laggard”. Even among early adopters, there are those that stand out, the “innovators,” as marketers call them. This category includes people willing to stand in line all night in a driving rain outside an Apple store to get an iPad at the first moment of its market launch.
So, what do these kinds of people drive? According to Translogic.com the quick answer is a Chevy Camaro, Kia Soul or Ford Flex. The cars most popular with techies are based on a survey of 140,000 consumers over the last two years. Six other vehicles on the list are certainly no surprise: Acura TL, Infiniti G, Lexus IS, the Hyundai Genesis sedan, and the Porshe Cayenne. Innovators and early adopters are more likely to choose a luxury car, Translogic.com concludes.
Translogic.com used the 2010 Acura TL as an example. At a base price of $35,105, it offers Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, a USB port and an iPod interface as standard features. Options like a 10-speaker audio system that plays audiophile DVD-Audio discs, a navigation system with voice recognition, and a rear-view camera take it to the next level.
Muscle is the Camaro’s chief innovation, serving up 300 hp from its direct injection V6 or 426 hp from its V8. The Ford Flex in part made the list thanks to its edgy exterior styling. According to Translogic.com, “Innovators are people who are more likely to take risks and they will definitely gravitate to vehicles with bolder and more polarizing styling.”
What these folks have in common is a desire to try out new things and share their experiences with their peers. So, just how adventurous or “techie” are you when it comes to your form of transportation?
Top Cars for Technology Innovators:
1. Chevrolet Camaro
2. Kia Soul
3. Ford Flex
4. Hyundai Genesis Sedan
5. Porsche Cayenne
6. Ford F-Series pickup
7. Acura TL
8. Infiniti G sedan
9. Volkswagen CC
10. Nissan Maxima
One of my favorite reality competitions of all time, The Real Cannonball Run 2001, has all but been forgotten. But now, the producers of The Amazing Race, Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri, are producing an online, corporate-sponsored series that will be a similar but real-time race across the country between teams of two people.
USA’s Real Cannonball Run was a race across the country between team of two people who knew each other and, in the best twist, a random person, like the grandmother paired with two frat boys. It will also include six teams of two racing across the country, though in product-placed Fords.
A press release calls the new series “the first interactive real-time road rally featuring the new 2012 Ford Focus,” which “will feature six teams of two people competing against one another to complete tasks in a challenging cross-country road rally adventure to win a $100,000 grand prize.” Episodes will air on Hulu, and real-time information will be released on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. Doganieri says in the press release that “they feel the end result has the potential to be a real game-changer in the reality world.”
The online series is now casting and the show will be produced over five weeks in February. Make sure to look for those new 2012 Ford Focus’s!!

Mad Money TV Program’s Jim Cramer said that Ford is “the greatest turnaround story in American history.”
Ford CEO Alan Mulally was pleased at the strongest quarter he’s seen in ten years, the removal of $7 billion of debt, and Ford’s strong position worldwide, rating first or second in 19 to 21 markets. Saying the company is “on the way to where we wants to be, and that’s investment grade.” Mulally also states, “the Ford brand is fantastic in China,” and intends to “expand as fast and as prudently as possible.” It seems that his company could provide “profitable growth for all” including Ford’s workers.
