We’re big fans of the turbocharged Ford Focus ST, and we’re plenty excited that the Blue Oval will be offering a similar treatment on the smaller Fiesta here in the United States, too. We first saw the production-ready Fiesta ST five-door at the Los Angeles Auto Show last fall, and Ford has now released this video of a Euro-spec three-door ST being flung around [...]

Evolution of Focus: If Mitsubishi Goes Down, Ford Will Still Sell You An Evo

Evolution of Focus: If Mitsubishi Goes Down, Ford Will Still Sell You An Evo

Looking at the 2012 U.S. market sales, I couldn’t help but notice that Ford sold, um, a lot of vehicles—more than 2.1 million—and Mitsubishi, at just under 58,000, sold, well, not a lot. Talk about disparity. One example: Ford sold 15 times as many Focus compacts as Mitsu did of its best-selling small car, the Lancer.

SEMA: 1940 Ford is a blank-slate for hot rod dreams

SEMA: 1940 Ford is a blank-slate for hot rod dreams

The 1940 Ford Coupe body shell from Ford Restoration Parts presents a clean canvas for those people who’ve always wanted the perfect hot rod. The durable body is a far better starting place than similar kits made from fiberglass, and is much easier to source than an original 70-year-old car. Ford is taking the first crack at putting one of [...]

2013 Ford Taurus 2.0L EcoBoost First Drive: Two Fewer Cylinders, Similar Personality

Big car, small engine. The pairing may seem paradoxical, but Ford has made a habit of dropping its turbocharged, direct-injection 2.0-liter four-cylinder into its larger vehicles. The latest blue-oval big’un to get a small EcoBoost is the beefy Taurus; this additional engine option, joining a naturally aspirated V-6 and the SHO’s EcoBoost V-6, appears as [...]
