Posts from ‘Ford’
Ford unveiled an updated Transit Connect minivan with freshened face and new features at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
Car and truck engines are designed in a relatively small number of cylinder configurations. Inline 4-cylinder and V6 engines are easily the most common, with V8 mills coming in third in popularity.
There is an air of parsimony to the automotive print ads of 1982. Take in all of the examples and take note of the following:
DETROIT—On the eve of the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Ford unveiled the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, a limited-edition model that pays tribute to the classic 1968 Mustang fastback in the 1968 Steve McQueen film Bullitt. The 2019 model will mark the third time Ford has produced a special-edition Bullitt Mustang; the first time was for the 2001 model year, and the second time was for 2008 and 2009.
DETROIT—Ford unveiled the long-awaited 2019 version of its Ranger pickup truck at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The revival marks the return of a small/midsize pickup truck to Ford showrooms—the previous Ranger was last sold in the U.S. for the 2011 model year. Per Ford, demand for midsize pickups has risen more than 80 percent since 2014, and is expected to continue to rise.
DETROIT—The 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit hasn’t officially kicked off yet, but Ford has already released info on one of the vehicles it will have on display: a muscled-up version of its 5-passenger midsize SUV. The 2019 Ford Edge ST includes an upgraded sport suspension and a gutsy twin-turbo V6 engine.
An important automotive anniversary passed with little fanfare recently. At least, it passed with little fanfare here in the United States.
