We certainly have a lot of engine alternatives these days. While oil burners are becoming less prevalent among cars due to Volkswagen's Dieselgate scandal, various types of hybrid and full electrics are available from most manufacturers. "Energi" is Ford-speak for plug-in hybrid or PHEV, a technology that straddles the middle ground between an HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and EV (Electric ... Read More

2017 Ford Escape Titanium AWD

17 ford escape titanium awd thumbnail

Ford gave its popular Escape compact crossover SUV a major update for this 2017 model year, making it look like a smaller Edge in the process. This will be good news if you like Ford’s mid-size five-seat SUV, but I must say the Escape has certainly lost some of its unique character after swapping its unorthodox grille-less façade for a more commonplace six-sided grille design. It seemed like ... Read More

Am I the only one who loves the Ford Flex? I know I'm not totally alone, because Ford sold a grand total of 19,570 across the nation last year and 6,425 during the first three months of 2016, so more than a few of us square blocks are looking for something unique and innovative while the majority of mainstream volume manufacturers are doing their best to squeeze us into their round holes.

2016 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Fastback Review

2016 Ford Mustang Ecoobost Fastback

2016 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Fastback Consider me a concerned Mustang citizen, but when Ford first revealed photos of this generation pony car I wasn't quite sure what to think. Had they gone too far in an attempt to modernize their classic muscle car? Like most everyone I've now seen more than my fair share of sixth-gen Mustangs in coupe and convertible body styles, base to Shelby trims, not ... Read More

2016 Ford Focus ST Review

If I were to ask, "What's your favorite performance brand?" which carmaker would first come to mind? A prerequisite for me is motorsport pedigree, a qualifier that certainly narrows the field. Better yet, a brand that's long been competitive in multiple disciplines, from grassroots to F1, not to mention endurance, rally, touring car, V8 supercar, Trans Am, drifting, drag racing, stock car, and ...

2016 Ford_Explorer Limited 23l Ecoboost 4wd

2016 Ford Explorer Limited 2.3L Ecoboost 4WD The Ford Explorer is one of those SUVs that causes pause about paying more for a premium brand. We're seeing that more often lately, mainstream volume brands creating much more appealing high-end models than ever before, this one even taking on some similar styling characteristics to the revered Range Rover brand that Ford previously owned through ...

2016 Ford Edge Sport AWD Review

2016 Ford Edge Sport AWD Road

2016 Ford Edge Sport AWD Here are some stats you probably don't know. Ford brand sales are so far ahead of the competition that even if each and every Smart, Fiat, Scion, Mini and Mitsubishi sold last year were added to second-place Chevrolet's lofty 2015 calendar year tally the pseudo-conglomerate would still be 116,591 units shy of measuring up, Likewise, if you combined Chevy's total sales ...
