Ford Calls Out Wrangler, Exec Says That 2021 Bronco Will Be “Superior” To Iconic Jeep Model

With the debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco fast approaching, Ford is wasting no time drawing the battle lines in its plan to crush the Jeep Wrangler and usurp it from its off-road sales throne. The latest example of this is a tweet from Michael Wayland who released an alleged quote from Ford Chief Operating Officer Jim Farley which indicates that Ford is not backing down from its long term goals for the revived off-roader.   Ford COO @jimfarley98 says the Bronco is “a much superior product” than @Jeep Wrangler https://t.co/arRjWY38yB — Michael Wayland (@MikeWayland) June 10, 2020 According to …

FORD Debuts 2015 US-Spec Focus Sedan — Style Update Brings Chic Dark Trims, Plus Enhanced Tech — But No HIDs…?

Hot off the presses!  Initial thoughts? Much improved! The dark trims really make the sedan’s nose much more appealing. This dark trim will no-doubt be available on the five-door as well.   The Good News: The tail of the hatch is also much cleaner in its appearance from directly behind, while the production-spec Focus Electric goes from the looker of the bunch to a bit eco-wimpy. The dark grille of the sedan is by far the best and biggest single improvement. The Not-So-Good News: The latest US Focus does still appear to lack the bi-xenon + LED lighting from the …

2015 Ford F-150 Almost Unbelieveably New – $14B Golden Goose Goes Hog Wild with LEDs and EcoBoost Tech

Supercars are awesome, but almost no other product (of any kind) can match the F-150’s sales volume and reliable revenue. By my rough, rough estimates, shown below based on Ford’s 2012 Annual Report — the F-150 nameplate alone is worth at least $14 billion in annual revenue. ! In terms of satisfied owners coming in for the new F-150 every few years: The Ford Truck line is certainly Dearborn’s golden goose.   How Important Is the F-150? Units ESTIMATES Ford 2012 Approx Total Auto Revenue Dollars  $              120,567,000 Total Global 2012 Sales Units                     5,668,000 Ford North Am Approx 2012 …

Ford Ka Concept Debuts Funky Style and Affordable Mechanicals in Brazil

The Ka is Ford’s smallest nameplate – literally. Just two letters and a quick sound. I like to pronounce it like a Southie from Boston, someone who ‘Pahhks the kaaah in ahhvaad yaaad.’ Alas, we can’t all be Good Will Hunting. Even so, the Ka’s broad appeal seems like a sure thing with this new five-door layout and cutting-edge technology. Even the style of the simple halogen headlights shows that Ford wants to be with the cool kids from MIT, and perhaps not the book-worms from Harvard. This Ka proves how silly the current model is, unfortunately. Based on the …
