    1416448800

    As the old saying goes, "There's no replacement for displacement." But these days, many automakers are launching powerful, downsized engines that offer similar or better power output than their predecessors, all while offering improvements in fuel economy and emissions. These days, we're seeing ...

    Is A 1.0L EcoBoost Enough For The Blue Oval's C-Segment Fighter? 1413302220

    Sitting down at the pre-drive briefing with Ford engineers ahead of sampling the refreshed 2015 Focus, water bottles clinked as we wet our whistles before Q&A. While pouring a glass, we noticed something stamped on the bottle label: "1L." One liter. We were palming the exact displacement of ...

    Video: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost flogged and analyzed by Ignition
    1413244740

    Aside from the way it looks and perhaps its independent rear suspension, the biggest bit of news on the 2015 Mustang may be the inclusion of its 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. That blown mill marks the first time since the Mustang SVO of the '80s that a turbo has been fitted under ...

    The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost represents a huge change for the Blue Oval as the first pony car in decades to be available with a four-cylinder engine.

    EcoBoost Authority Does What It Can To Mask An Aging Package 1410796620

    Typically, when I approach a new vehicle launch, it's with a degree of optimism. Nowadays, we just expect that every new vehicle will pose a legitimate challenge to segment leaders. Mid-cycle refreshes, meanwhile, have taken on a greater degree of importance, as customers' preferences for the ...

    Colin Chapman's legacy of "adding lightness" has filtered down to many followers, from Lotus to Caterham and now to Zenos. Started by a pair of former Lotus and Caterham execs, Zenos unveiled its first model based on its innovative carbon and aluminum backbone chassis earlier this year at ...

    V6 engines will outpace V8s for the 2015 Ford F-150
    1406147160

    How times have changed. Even five years ago, who would have thought the mighty V8 would be just another engine choice for buyers of the 2015 Ford F-150? Ford is projecting about 28 percent of the next-generation trucks will have the 5.0-liter V8. That's nothing to sneeze at, but consider this: ...

    First Ride: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost
    Welcoming Back A Turbo Four After Almost 30 Years 1400255820

    Earlier this week, Ford invited us to Charlotte, NC, to ride in an all-new 2015 Mustang fitted with its turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. It's the first forced-induction, four-cylinder ponycar for the Blue Oval since the sun set on the 1986 Mustang SVO. We jumped at the opportunity, ...

    Report: Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost sales robust in early going
    1400000520

    Okay, okay, okay, so I was just a smidge wrong. Those that read my review of the Ford Fiesta with the new 1.0-liter, EcoBoost engine will know that while I really enjoyed the torquey little three-cylinder, I was concerned that Ford's decision to force 1.0-liter owners into a manual transmission, ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
    Three's A Party 1399651080

    I'll be honest; when Ford first unveiled its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, I was skeptical. Past attempts at building turbocharged American cars were almost universally awful, I reasoned, so why would Ford's latest effort be any different? This may seem foolish today, considering the success that the ...

    Official: 2015 Ford Focus Sedan is fresh-faced and ready to defend its Most Popular crown
    1397016060

    Ford has made an art of deeper-than-normal midlife updates since the 2010 Fusion, a strategy that has allowed it to keep models looking fresher in showrooms for longer without needing full redesigns. Instead of slight touchups to light fixtures, new paint colors and perhaps new wheel patterns, ...

    Though a number of foreign automakers have located their North American assembly plants in Mexico, our neighbors to the south are hardly known for producing their own cars under their own names.

However, Ford still sees life in the segment with the reveal of the updated 2015 Expedition, now available (solely) with the company's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. The new truck will make its public ...
