The Detroit Auto Show has announced its North American Car of the Year and the prize has gone to the Ford Fusion Hybrid. The Ford Fusion hybrid shared the top honors with another Ford vehicle, the Transit Connect, which won the award for North American Truck of the Year. The Ford Fusion hybrid is a mid-sized sedan which, like all hybrids, has gas and electric capabilities.
Detroit has a chance to show the world that they’re listening to the cries for greater fuel efficiency!
The Ford Escape, developed under the name of the U204 by the Ford Motor Company, is a compact SUV that was first sold as a 2001 model. A beautiful blue Ford Escape parked in my driveway recently.  Ready to begin a week-long test drive, it oozed appeal as the answer to our mid-size SUV search. The 2014 Ford Escape is ranked #9 in Affordable Compact SUV’s by US World Reports.  Don’t let the “compact” category fool you. If you’ve seen the TV commercials for the Escape, a big feature is the one where you have arms full of something: groceries, flea market finds, or artwork and standing at the back of the vehicle you wave your foot under the bumper.
Special features included back seats that recline (not all the way back, but enough to satisfy a sleepy child) and wow – those front row heated seats!
Other specials include a “capless” gas tank and a “super secret” storage place in the floor of second row. While we are impressed by how well the new GMC Canyon turned out, it’s the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 that is the star of the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, at least as far as trucks are concerned. As for the new interior, I have a sneaking suspicion that all truck makers have colluded to offer buyers one general design direction. Despite looking like the same ol’, the exterior and interior are nevertheless modern. The company achieved this feat by incorporating high-strength steel and military-grade aluminum alloys throughout the F-150’s body. Performance and fuel economy figures have not been published, but a lighter body naturally entails the new F-150 can tow more, haul more, accelerate quicker, stop shorter and use less gas. The 2015 Ford F-150 will be available in five primary trims — XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch.

Ford has just released new images of their 2011 Focus at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new Focus has been developed by a worldwide team with major input from Germany, Britain and the United States.
From the initial pics it looks as though Ford have thrown their current Focus RS model in the blender with the best of Chris Bangle’s flame surfacing from BMW, smoothed the edges out a bit and voila—a new Focus! Overall, though, its cuts a striking shape and definitely stands out among its mid class rivals. Since 1998 the Focus has been acknowledged as one of the class leaders when it comes to driving duties and overall handling. More pics of the hatch and sedan models follow after the jump, along with an extensive press release from Ford UK. BRENTWOOD, Essex – Monday, 11 January, 2010 – The next-generation Ford Focus makes its worldwide debut today at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, providing customers with more affordable technologies and features than ever in this segment, as well as detailed craftsmanship, outstanding fuel economy and a new standard for driving quality. Both the four-door saloon and five-door hatchback body styles of the next-generation Focus are previewed prior to their production start for Europe and North America late in 2010 and market launch early in 2011. The new Focus will be nearly identical in all markets, with 80 per cent parts commonality around the world.
Production of the next-generation Ford Focus will begin simultaneously in Europe and North America in late 2010, with individual market launches starting early in 2011. The new Focus will be one of up to 10 unique models to be built from Ford’s new C-car platform, which is expected to generate total sales in all regions of two million units annually by 2012. The new Ford Focus has been developed by a global team, led from Ford’s European small and medium vehicle centre of excellence in Merkenich, near Cologne, Germany, with powertrain development led by a similar team at Ford’s technical centre in Dunton, England.
In developing the vehicle for global markets, the product team in Europe was able to call on the experience acquired from recent programs like the much-acclaimed new Ford Fiesta, and was supported by the expertise of vehicle and powertrain technology specialists located in Ford’s engineering centre in Dearborn, Mich. The two models share a sporty and dynamic character, marking the next evolution of Ford’s acclaimed kinetic design form language.
With its striking front end, sleek profile, dramatic rising beltline and athletic stance, the new Focus clearly telegraphs the rewarding driving experience that awaits customers when they take to the road. Introduced in 1998, the original Ford Focus brought new levels of agility and responsiveness to the C-segment.
Engineers have updated the innovative suspension concepts from prior models, developing optimised new designs for the “control blade” multilink rear suspension and the semi-isolated front and rear subframes. All global customers will benefit from the same quality of dynamic performance in the new Focus. The engaging driver appeal of the new Ford Focus is magnified by a powertrain range that delivers spirited performance and targets outstanding levels of fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The global powertrain lineup for the new Focus will include a range of state-of-the-art Ford EcoBoost™ four-cylinder turbocharged direct injection (DI) engines – including the 1.6-litre unit in Europe and a choice of advanced and improved Duratorq TDCi common-rail diesel engines, all of which offer reductions in fuel consumption of between 10 and 20 per cent compared to the outgoing models.


The technology package of the new Focus promises not only clear leadership in the C-segment, but also includes features customers in larger, more premium segments would find surprising. MyFord is complemented by a new generation of Ford’s powerful SYNC® connectivity package, which includes a sophisticated voice control system, Bluetooth and satellite navigation, along with connection points for a variety of devices and media players. The Focus platform provides an incredibly strong and stiff structure, which not only benefits vehicle dynamics and refinement but also provides the basis for enhanced crash performance. The new Focus will make significant strides in reducing cabin noise, promising a quiet cabin environment. Each component in the vehicle that the customer will touch, see, hear or even smell has been subjected to rigorous analysis to ensure that it will exceed an owner’s expectations. Ford has developed a global DNA standard that defines the exact attributes a part should have to meet the quality requirements of the brand.
This meticulous attention to detail is also reflected in Ford’s global manufacturing strategy for the Focus, with consistent standards and processes being applied in every one of the assembly plants, wherever they are located in the world. Para atrair a atencao dos consumidores para a nova geracao do Fiesta, antes mesmo da estreia do hatch aguardada para 2010, a Ford apresenta no Salao de Los Angeles opcoes customizadas do modelo que foram desenvolvidas pela propria fabricante em parceria como empresas preparadoras independentes (H&R, 3dCarbon, FSWerks e Steeda). O Fiesta preto, criado pela Ford Racing (divisao esportiva da marca) em parceria com a Steeda Autosport, e equipado com kit de captacao de ar frio para a admissao e um sistema de escape desenvolvido pela Borla e pela propria Ford. O hatch vermelho foi preparado pela 3dCarbon e FSWeks e traz um kit turbo-intercooler e escape de 2,25”.
Ja o modelo branco foi criado com todos os equipamentos de customizacao oferecidos pela Ford.
Ford apresenta novo motor Sigma no Brasil Montadora investiu R$ 600 milhoes para a producao da nova familia. Tiago says:segunda-feira, 19 de setembro de 2011 at 10:51Tenho um sedan branco, eh so felicidade! Antes eu nao pensava em botar mascara negra no farol pq o farol dele jah eh mto show mas agora vendo esses fiestas com mascara negra fiquei muito em duvida! The latest battle is on a front that is of significant importance to the domestic three: large pickup trucks.
Indeed, GM is touting that its small-block V-8, long a cornerstone of its large car and pickup truck fleet, beats everyone else including Ram, Toyota and Nissan. As of publication, the Ford Motor Company has not responded to GM’s fuel mileage edge claims. Ford Advances Inventive Creativity Through its TechShop PartnershipDetroit-area workshop and fabrication studio helps to increase Ford inventions by 30 percent.
One of the judges, Csaba Csere, a writer for Car & Driver, described the Ford Fusion as “simply the best one (hybrid) ever built. The Fusion can run on electric power alone for up to 47 miles and features a 2.5-liter 155 horsepower engine to kick in when needed.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid, the Electric Fiat 500, the Toyota FT-CH, and the Honda CR-Z hybrid are all great eco-friendly cars: let’s hope for more like them as the Auto Show continues.
The Ford Escape was developed in conjunction with Mazda and released at the same time as the Mazda Tribute.
This is a unique platform that had been based on the Mazda GF platform, which had been utilized by the famous Mazda 626 vehicle. This vehicle was unique for being seventy five percent more fuel efficient than previous models of the Ford Escape.
We found the Escape to be a roomy, well-sized vehicle capable of getting the job done, whether hauling gear or people.
I can’t speak for other Ford models but the heated seats (which crank all the way up to 5) in the Escape are perfect if you are having a “Polar Vortex” winter. Ford’s workhorse truck promises to be tougher, smarter and more capable than ever before.
In fact, aside from the bold new grille and distinctive headlights, I’d say the exterior looks like old one. Attractive as the F-150’s new cabin may be, what I see is a cross between the Chevrolet Silverado (GMC Sierra) and Toyota Tundra’s interiors, or am I seeing things? Other tech goodies include a rear view camera, trailer brake controller and a segment-first 360-degree camera system for safer maneuvering. But the biggest highlight of this F-150 is the weight reduction of up to 700 pounds over the outgoing model.
It will also be offered with a chrome appearance package, a sport appearance package and an FX4 off-road package. Production will commence later this year, with European and North American sales to commence simultaneously in early 2011. The Focus will initially be built in three plants— Saarlouis (Germany), Michigan (United States) and Chongqing (China). Initial production will be concentrated at the Saarlouis (Germany), Michigan (United States) and Chongqing (China) Assembly Plants. The first of these will be the new Ford C-MAX and Ford Grand C-MAX – unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show – for launch in Europe in the second half of 2010. The vehicle has been engineered without compromise to meet all customer and legislative requirements of the major worldwide markets.


The new Focus has an extremely modern, cockpit-style interior, with the stylish centre console wrapped around the driver and providing outstanding access to the vehicle’s major controls and display panels.
The cabin’s bold and contemporary graphics, the sculptured shape of the soft-touch instrument panel and the choice of superior trim materials all help to give occupants the feeling that they are travelling in a premium-class car. The all-new Focus plans to raise the benchmark once more, targeting class-leading driving quality that blends outstanding steering precision and road feedback with significantly improved refinement and ride control. Identical chassis and suspension architecture is being used for all markets, except for minor regional tuning differences, such as local tyre specifications. The new technologies have been designed to be simple and highly intuitive to use, while enhancing both convenience and safety for the vehicle occupants including driver connect technology, MyFord, which provides the driver with a state-of-the-art combination of controls and display screens to operate the key vehicle features.
This refinement complements the fresh new interior design and higher craftsmanship levels to create a premium feel akin to larger vehicles. Particular attention has been given to the quality of interior trim materials, and the colour matching, gaps, flushness and tolerances where one part meets another. Examples include the sound the door makes when it is closed, requiring special attention to the door structure and latch mechanism, and the design of a steering wheel, right down to the thickness of padding and size of stitching on the rim. Por fora, o modelo personalizado traz um kit aerodinamico composto por para-choques e saias laterais.
Apesar de nao divulgar alteracoes mecanicas no veiculo, a montadora afirma que os componentes de personalizacao estarao disponiveis de fabrica. Chevy remains a big battle for domestic bragging rights, something neither automaker is easing up on even as global auto sales rise and other company brands come into play, especially for GM. These models, the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado, are sales leaders and profit makers, vehicles that have kept each company in the game even as its foreign competitors dominate elsewhere. What is different for 2014 is that all three have been modernized and outfitted with direct injection, cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing for improvements in horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency. Moreover, the Sierra and Chevy Silverado will offer class-leading towing capacity of up to 11,500 pounds. When gasoline was retailing for $1 even $2 per gallon, the higher cost was simply worth bearing given the utility of these models. Three out of every four GMC Sierra shopper goes for the V-8, while most Ford owners now choose one of two V-6 engines offered. All three pickup truck engines can operate in four-cylinder mode at highway speeds, providing the fuel economy difference that it enjoys over all competitors. He founded Auto Trends in April 2008 and expanded it to reflect its current format and editorial policy as of Sept. In the United States of America, the Mercury division of Ford released a luxury version of the Ford Escape that came to be known as the Ford Mariner. If you spend some time learning this system you will be amazed at all the things you can accomplish from the driver’s seat. You can always open the hatch with a button and closing is easy with a button push as well. But considering that GM, Ram and Toyota have taken a similar approach with their latest trucks, we can’t complain too much. In a true global car program the Focus will share parts from a minimum of 80% in all markets. A Ford apresentou no Brasil, nesta quarta-feira (2), o novo motor Sigma, uma plataforma global que a montadora vai produzir no Brasil para ampliar a gama de motores disponiveis na regiao. The two best-selling makes for General Motors and the Ford Motor Company have long fought for the top position among car brands, with Toyota jumping in more recently in a bid for brand supremacy. For 2014, GM releases the next generation of the Chevrolet Silverado and its GMC Sierra twin, trucks that it says will trump Ford in fuel economy. Those days, however, are gone as automakers strive to comply with more rigid EPA fuel requirements and as $4 per gallon gasoline pinches the wallets of even the most loyal pickup truck owners. Instead, Ford’s answer will come in about a year when the next generation Ford F-150 is released.
For well-heeled shoppers, $4,000 is the top-end cost of leasing a late-model used car, something few of us common folks can afford. The Ford Escape Hybrid was also the first sports utility vehicle to be made available to the public with hybrid technology. That likely makes the full-size truck some 500 pounds lighter than the aforementioned mid-size Canyon, even though it is a class higher and, thus, notably larger. Both models are rated at 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, although the Toyota can claim a performance edge over Chevy’s smaller V-8.
Matt is a member of the Washington Automotive Press Association and the Society of Automotive Analysts, and is a contributor to various print and online media sources. Internal Auto Trends reports has Ford outfitting these trucks with a 10-speed transmission and introducing a smaller diesel for its light-duty line.
