Interesting read. Thanks for pointing out, morrisryanc

Good points, Chop.

I hope it's a 3-door, as well. I guess it will be up to the product planners to decide if U.S. consumers will buy such a model.

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 17:19

is228979, Ford announced it would be bringing the Focus RS to the U.S. I think that car will impress you.

is228979, torque steer was not an issue for me during my test drive. Power delivery was quite smooth.

I agree the prices are very high, but they're not too far off from what General Motors and Chrysler are charging for their heavy duty models.

I'm sure the EPA sticker will have a high EPA rating, but I'm also curious about fuel-economy in real-world driving.

Friday, June 27, 2014 - 15:22

Good points, CameronRoberson.

The point I was making is Ford has become so upscale it's making it more difficult to differentiate Lincoln. I have driven the Lincoln MKC, and it's definitely high quality and competitive. But I'...

You're absolutely, correct. Ford, and other automakers, have been lobbying the EPA for quite a while to implement new test procedures that better measure fuel economy of modern vehicles,...

I prefer manual transmissions, as well. Unfortunately we are a dwindling minority.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - 16:28

Jefe, interesting comments, most of which I agree with (with the exception of the Swanson head shot).

Friday, March 21, 2014 - 16:33

That's very interesting. I hope Ford came up with solutions to the issues you described. They insist the new F-150 will be as durable as the current model.

Monday, March 3, 2014 - 14:24

I think you will be pleased. Have fun during your test drive. Let us know if you decide to purchase.

It is entertaining. Been watching for years.

Friday, November 15, 2013 - 12:56

Good one! I enjoy the show, but it's just that, a show. Lot of it is scripted heavily in my opinion.

Thursday, November 14, 2013 - 16:41

They don't think they're expecting great volumes from the Mustang in Europe. As for an AWD Mustang, it's interesting, but I haven't heard anything.

Actually, I've spoken to Mark Fields about this very subject, and he said a good number of Expeditions and Navigators are sold in the Middle East, and are highly profitable.

I think you're correct, ruggles. Elon Musk strikes me as the type who is always two steps ahead in his thinking/planning. I thought it was interesting that after his presentation Westcott told me...

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 21:00

I agree with you, is228979. The manual is the perfect fit for the Fiesta ST. I just worry that they may lose customers by not offering an automatic transmission.

Monday, September 16, 2013 - 16:52

Ford has told me another reason for discontinuing the Ranger was it would've taken too large of an investment to update it to meet current safety standards. Product planners decided the money...

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 - 09:34

You are correct, it's not just about a phone interface. That was just one example of what the system does. I agree the system is flawed, as has Ford, and is taking steps to correct it. I've used...

Monday, July 1, 2013 - 15:21

Good point, is228979. I was a big fan of the Lightning; there was nothing like the whine of that supercharger.

Friday, June 28, 2013 - 14:11

Ford executives told me it is not a direct replacement for the SVT Lightning, but is its spiritual successor. One key difference between the Tremor and the Lightning is the SVT team did not work...

Monday, June 17, 2013 - 12:26

I agree this technology holds a lot of promise, and from the sound of it so does Ford, which has put considerable financial backing behind the project.

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 15:30

The EPA test cycle does need to change, but doing so is extremely difficult due to the amount of governmental red tape involved. Auto makers seem to be pulling back a bit on their fuel economy...

Friday, February 22, 2013 - 14:36

Good points. Ford has high hopes for the Fiesta ST.

Friday, January 11, 2013 - 16:54

There is a lot of speculation that the 3.2L diesel will make it to the F-150.

Friday, September 21, 2012 - 13:16

I've asked Ford executives about bringing diesels to North America many times. I'm told it doesn't make financial sense to do so now, but if and when it does, Ford can quickly introduce diesels to...

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 - 13:53

Ford tells me that the number of cylinders no longer matters to customers, at least on their mainstream models. But you raise an interesting question. Will diehard Mustang fans accept an I-4? That...
