Difference Between European and U.S. Ford Focus RS

Just today, Ford unveiled the first photos of the U.S.-spec Ford Focus RS, and although they confirmed that there would be little to no difference between the European and U.S. Ford Focus RS, the new batch of photos help to confirm the truth behind that statement.

New 2015 Ford Ranger U.S. Release Date

Just yesterday, Ford unveiled the latest, refreshed version of the Ranger at the Bangkok Auto Show, and although the midsize truck looks and sounds more impressive than ever, it doesn’t look as if we’ll ever get our hands on it here in America.

New 2017 Ford GT Interior Features and Design

Ford vehicles have memorable exteriors, but as owners and their friends and families spend more time in the cabin than they do looking at the outside, the layout and design of the interiors are often considered as much, if not more than the exteriors. That is especially true for the Ford GT, one of the latest models to be announced. According to Ford, the supercar is the start of a push for even more impressive interiors. (more…)

New Updates for Redesigned 2015 Ford Edge

The Edge, which is positioned in the center of the Ford SUV lineup, continues to gain a great deal of popularity as it is able to provide appealing fuel economy ratings similar to the smaller Escape, and yet it has a spacious cabin that makes it possible for the midsize crossover to take on cargo similar to the Ford Explorer and Expedition, two of the larger SUVs in the Ford family. Another one of the reasons that it is getting some traction is because the Edge has been completely redesigned for the 2015 model year.

As you would expect, with the redesign comes a number of updates and upgrades. Just by looking at the SUV, a few changes are immediately apparent, but some of the most important updates can not be seen from a picture. For that reason, we’ve decided to take a look at just a few of the new updates for the redesigned 2015 Ford Edge. There are many, but here are the ones you definitely need to know about. (more…)

Ford has been giving us exactly what we want lately. Soon after announcing that they would be releasing a dozen new performance vehicles, they decided to waste no time and unveiled a quarter of the promised models in Detroit during the North American International Auto Show.

The new hatchback won’t be released until sometime next year, but as consumers have been drooling over it since the day it debuted, Ford continues to leak specific information about what it will contain. It is all mouth-watering information, but of everything to be announced so far, there are a few highlights that stand out from the rest. Here are 5 things you need to know about the 2017 Ford Focus RS. (more…)
