1979 Ford Pinto, Economy-Car

1979 Ford Pinto

Have you noticed that the term “economy car” seems to have fallen out of common use in recent years? We think there’s good reason for that. With the average transaction price of a new vehicle hovering around $36,000, and the even the least-expensive new rides going for $18,000 or better, there isn’t much out there that feels economical.

Kevin Bacon, Footloose, Beetles in Movies

What, exactly, does Kevin Bacon have in common with Clint Eastwood? Read on…

Few film genres employ characters more cookie-cutter and two-dimensional than do Westerns. Generally speaking, the whole good guy/bad guy, cowboys/Indians thing is the stuff of mediocre legend. Anyone who’s watched any Roy Rogers movie knows exactly what I’m talking about.

2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan

2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan

New York Auto ShowIntroduced in advance of the 2017 New York Auto Show, Ford’s newest police-fleet vehicle has an unexpected twist—it’s a fuel-saving gas/electric hybrid.

The 2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan is essentially a Ford Fusion Hybrid that’s been fortified for police duty with cop-car gear such as steel wheels, wiring for light bars and other upfit equipment, easy-to-clean vinyl rear seats and floor, anti-stab plates in the front seat backs, and slim-bolstered cloth front seats (to accommodate officers’ utility belts). It shares the Fusion Hybrid’s Atkinson-cycle 2.0-liter 4-cylinder paired with an electric motor fed by lithium-ion battery. The powertrain produces a combined 188 horsepower and can run in battery-only mode up to 60 mph.
