Escape to 2020: Ford spy shots

October 24, 2018 David Zatz 0

The Ford Escape has been around for quite a long time, an early crossover that has stayed quite popular — with over 300,000 sales in both 2016 and 2017, it’s an important vehicle for Ford, which has been relying more and more on its pickups. Indeed, the Explorer was the […]

Ford drops big hint about e-Mustang

October 19, 2018 David Zatz 1

An electric Ford Mustang is coming, if a brief commercial placement is any indication. Robert S. Miller pointed us to this freeze-frame showing a blue Mustang grille emblem in the middle of a commercial. While any automaker can put lighted emblems onto the grille, the color blue is usually reserved […]

Lots of looks at the 2019 Ford Ranger

October 15, 2018 David Zatz 0

Courtesy of Real Fast Fotography, we have a portfolio of 2019 Ford Ranger pickup spy shots, covering several models. The Ranger is already available for pre-orders, and will show up in XL, XLT, and Lariat forms; we’re not sure why one of our spy shot pickups has Sport decals. The […]

Here’s the Lincoln Aviator, a big SUV for a small brand

October 14, 2018 David Zatz 0

Lincoln sells a lot of cars — well, they sell a lot of car models, anyway. Sales for any particular Lincoln have been minuscule since Ford stopped making Crown Vics, which was the death knell for the closely related Lincoln Town Car. Now, “black car” companies are buying Toyota Avalons, […]

2020 Ford Explorer: hybrid coming, police continues

September 21, 2018 David Zatz 0

The 2020 Ford Explorer will add a new hybrid-electric option, while keeping the “Interceptor” police pursuit version, which has been far more popular than Ford’s Interceptor sedans. As in the past, the vehicle — now a unit-body crossover — will share its platform with the Lincoln Aviator. Most of its […]

Outside of pickups, is Ford stuttering?

August 30, 2018 David Zatz 0

There’s no question but that Ford absolutely dominates the American pickup truck market — a huge, profitable slice of the pie. If they didn’t, the company would be in big trouble, though. Moody’s just dropped Ford’s bond rating from Baa2 to Baa3, saying it could fall to junk status, following […]

China Ford F-150 Raptor

Pickup sales figures are a bit misleading

August 8, 2018 David Zatz 0

Ford sold 522,087 F-series trucks in the USA from January to July 2018. If that figure doesn’t stun you, consider that full-line sales of Subaru and Volkswagen were just 382,286 and 365,799 in the same period. Hyundai-Kia’s full line sales were 733,474 — less than Ford F-series plus Ram pickup/chassis cab sales. […]

2019 Ford Edge ST AWD: price leak

July 18, 2018 David Zatz 0

The Ford Edge ST, a new and well-tuned version of their ordinary “SUV” (medium-sized hatchback), is Ford’s first performance crossover, coming long after many competitors. Ford claims a hefty 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque from their turbo V6. With that much power, all wheel drive is practically a requirement, […]

Ford Raptor for sale in China

Chinese Raptor appears near Dearborn

June 19, 2018 David Zatz 0

China is undergoing a massive economic boom, creating millionaires and billionaires as well as millions of impoverished, suicide-prone factory workers. For the priviledged few, Ford Performance has localized the F-150 Raptor pickup, as seen in these spy shots from Real Fast Fotography. There are only a few visible differences, presumably […]
