I just picked up my new car from the dealership.

My journey begins. My objective is to provide an on-going long-term analysis of this vehicle that can help potential shoppers make an informed decision. I plan on owning this car for at least 2 years, over which time I should do about 120,000 km.

For starters, as you can see from the title, I've opted for the 1.6 EcoBoost this time around. The main reason for this choice is fuel economy. Be sure to read my initial review on this engine once I've completed a few thousand kilometers.

Other than the engine, the only notable difference in the 2016 model is the new infotainment system, now known as Sync 3. I think that the previous infotainment system, MyFord Touch, wasn't too bad, however many reviews thought otherwise.

The new Sync 3 system has received great reviews, so I can't wait to start playing around with it and see what it can do. Expect a detailed analysis in the weeks to come.

That's all for today, I must go play with my new toy.
