2019 Ford Escape Titanium – Road Test

It’s been a number of years since I last tested a Ford Escape. I’ve always liked the look of the Escape, but every time I’ve driven one I came away completely unimpressed and very disappointed. That changed this week when I jumped behind the wheel of the 2019 Titanium. My immediate first impression was “gotta get me one of these!” So why this Escape? What’s different – what made it so much better? Let’s take a look…

2019 Ford EcoSport SES – Road Test

I’m going to be perfectly honest here – I didn’t want to book the EcoSport for an entire week, but my wife loves this little car and wants to replace our Focus with one next year… so “Happy Wife, Happy Life!” Here we go… First up, this is a small vehicle – based on the Fiesta platform. It’s not the only mini CUV however, because virtually all manufacturers have got at least one in their lineup, so there’s obviously a market for them (old people having difficulty getting in and out of a car, driving by touch etc.). In actual fact it’s a perfect little runabout

Ford Reveals The New 2019 Ranger Raptor

Ford released some details of the new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor at the reveal in Bangkok on Wednesday (Feb. 7, 2018). No word on a North American version at this time, with Ford Thailand just saying that “the Ranger Raptor is set to turn heads throughout Asia Pacific and around the world.” However, the All-New 2019 Ranger for North America will be at the Canadian International AutoShow next week, so possibly we’ll get more information then.

Road Test Special: Ford Changed The World When He Gave Us The Model T – Tesla’s Going To Change It Back Again

Ford brought the Model T to the masses – Tesla plans to do the same…with the Model 3 Tesla. What’s the first thing you think of when you read or hear that word? For me, it was a very expensive electric car that the Hollywood gang loved to be seen-in – so they could tell us how to live our life and save the environment from their ivory tower. For that reason alone, I completely ignored the car and everything about it. But I was wrong – so very wrong. What changed my mind?

Electric Vehicles – The Answer To Every Urban Commuter’s Prayers…Or Are They?

At this year’s Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) the stand-out theme would have to be Electric Vehicles (EVs) – at least that’s where most of the manufacturers seem to be spending their time, energy and design money.
