CIAS 2015 Show Highlights – 2017 F-150 Raptor

The all-new 2017 F-150 Raptor – the ultimate high-performance off-road pickup in the company’s line up. Ford has reengineered every part of the F-150 Raptor to make it the toughest, smartest, most capable off-roader – and more efficient than ever. “When we created the first Raptor, we set out to prove vehicle performance isn’t just measured on the street or at the track – off-road can be even more fun,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The original Raptor, plus enhancements on the all-new F-150 set the bar for us to make the all-new Raptor better in every way.”

2013 Ford Ford Focus SEL – Road Test

It’s been a number of years since I last drove the Ford Focus. For 2012 we got an all-new model based on the same platform the Europeans have – a first, because we’ve always been at least one step behind them since the initial model came out in 2001. While we got the “completely new” 2001 Focus, the Europeans were already moving on to the 2nd generation of its development in 2002. Now, after much anticipation we’re on par with the Focus development – was it worth the wait? Let’s find out….

2014 New Seven-Passenger Ford Transit Connect Wagon

Ford Introduces New Seven-Passenger People Mover with a Difference: Transit Connect Wagon First to Exceed 7.8 L/100 km DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 13, 2012 – Ford, the most fuel-efficient full-line manufacturer, introduces the first seven-passenger people mover expected to break the 30 mpg-plus [7.8 L/100 km] highway barrier with the all-new Transit Connect Wagon, which drives like a car, has the flexibility of a utility and can haul the payload of a full-size pickup.

2011 Ford Taurus SHO – Road Test

The Taurus SHO has always been about subtlety and stealth – no need to draw undue attention from the long arm of the law (or Revenue Generation Force as I like to call them). To that end the new 2010/2011 Taurus SHO follows the same formula that first made it desirable back in 1989.  After a break of about 10 years or so, it’s back and it ain’t anything like the original once you get under the skin.

FORD Shows Us Some Very Useful Safety Features – MyKey And Other Safety Innovations

Road Test Special  While Ford were encouraging us to put the Fiesta through its paces, they also took the opportunity to demonstrate a couple of their “exciting” new features that when I first heard about them a couple of months ago, I just discarded after reading – thinking they don’t apply to me. Upon further examination and a real-life demo I discovered I couldn’t have been more wrong. These are not only innovative, but take Ford to a new level in safety – other manufacturers are going to be scrambling to come out with their own version of these products. We’ll look at the Active Park Assist another time, but let’s start with the ingenious MyKey system….
