2016 Ford Crown Victoria Favorite Among the Police

March 16, 2015

The 2016 Ford Crown Victoria will be based on the latest global platform and will have a similarity with the new Taurus model. Along with a redesigned exterior, this new version will have an upgraded interior, packed with most coveted infotainment and security tools of today. Ever since its inception in 1955, Crown Victoria has come a long way and is now likely have various engine options and is now being touted as one of the most globally awaited cars by law and order enforcement agencies.

2016 Ford Crown Victoria Engine Options and Performance

Ford is reportedly planning to offer various engine options that a user can choose from based on their preference in terms of fuel economy and power. For the first option, a 3.5 litre EcoBoost V6 engine is reported being offered, and there is also a second offering that promises better performance and power with a V8 engine. The engines will probably be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and will come with both four-wheel and all-wheel drive options.

This lighter in weight 2016 Ford Crown Victoria with improved aerodynamics will be able to produce increased fuel efficiency rates of around 32 mpg on highway drives, making this ideal for interceptor vehicles. Keep a lookout on this section to know more about under the hood features later.

2016 Ford Crown Victoria Exterior and Interior Design

2016 Ford Crown Victoria will boast of a redesigned and improved exterior quality along with the possibility of having additional trim levels and longer wheelbase units. Since this vehicle is heavily recognized as a Police Interceptor, Ford has constructed the vehicle with the finest quality and durable materials to power it through stressful situations, all the while not sacrificing anything in performance. This is also a six seater vehicle that is used as a family car, so expect increased cabin space and roomy interiors.

2016 Ford Crown Victoria rear

Like its 2007 counterpart, this too lacks in quality when it comes to its interior design and features. To make this car cost-effective, Ford has compromised on the technicalities, which becomes clear when you take a look at the dashboard. Some of the materials used in upholstering its interiors are not exactly of the highest quality but does live up to its reputation of being reliable and useful in every respect.

Technological features are standardized with a good quality audio system, navigation and possibly even connectivity tools such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. For the price the 2016 Ford Crown Victoria is offered at, we certainly cannot complain about its lack of features on the inside.

2016 Ford Crown Victoria Price and Release Date

The well performing and affordable is expected to cost at least around $30,000 for its base model and is expected to get higher on with the increase in trim levels. The 2016 Ford Crown Victoria may be launched by the end of this year, or in early part of 2016. Note that this is just speculation, and no such official release date has been announced yet. It would be interesting to see if this upcoming model peaks the interest of law enforcement agencies like its previous version did back in 2007.

2016 Ford B-Max is about to make a reappearance for the third time, and just like its previous entries, this upcoming MPV will improve on all the major aspects such as design, performance and power.

Details of 2015 Ford B-Max is being kept under wraps, so all we can do at this time is speculating as to what it might feature. Along with increased head and leg space for both the cars ends, expect it to come upholstered with leather for its seats. Most of the improvements will come in the form of upgraded technological features such as navigation, high quality audio system, and advanced connectivity tools such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. There is also word that their very own MyFord infosystem might make a comeback and feature a faster and more responsive display system.

It boasts of some significant tweaks and mods that start with an updated grille design, elongated LED front lights and a slight increase in its overall dimensions. The official measurements report a length of 160.5 inches, width of 68.9 inches and height of 63.1 inches, with its wheelbase being at 98 inches. While this car may not always stand out from the crowd, expect to hear some compliments as you drive this beauty.

2016 Ford B-Max Engine, Power and Performance

This is one aspect where Ford takes the cake by offering a multitude of engine options to suit every taste and requirement. The company now offers 6 possible options that are paired with 5-speed manual gearbox and come in front-wheel drive.

For its Gasoline lineup, the engine options are:

  • litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine delivering 124 hp and 149 lb-ft of torque.

The maximum speed that this car can reach is at 99 to 118 mph and has fuel efficiency that averages at an astonishing 60 mpg on average. This fuel consumption rate is around 4-5 mpg higher than its previous model.

2016 Ford B-Max Release Date, Price and Competitors

The 2016 Ford B-Max would face stiff competition from cars like Citroen C3 Picasso, Skoda Rapid, Nissan Note and Peugeot 301 once it releases in the market.

2015 Ford Troller T4 Review and Price

March 12, 2015

For those of you that greatly miss Ford’s premium off-roader Bronco, we have some good news! While it is very unlikely that Ford might decide to reincarnate the Bronco anytime soon, the automakers are offering a new vehicle in replacement going by the name of 2015 Ford Troller T4. Unveiled at the Sao Paulo Motor show in Brazil, the Troller T4 will be a vehicle built in Brazil and will replace the current T4 model in offering. This vehicle bears a striking resemblance to Jeep Wrangler and rides on 17 inch all-terrain rubber wheels to give it the extra amount of stability that is much needed.

2015 Ford Troller T4 front

2015 Ford Troller T4 Engine Details and Performance

As no specific details about its engine was made available, some sources indicate that 2015 Ford Troller T4 will come equipped with a capable Powerstroke I-5 engine that is able to produce a horsepower of up to 197 and a significant rise in torque at 347 lb-ft. Another rumor is that there might be an additional variant available with a 3.2 litre turbodiesel engine delivering 180 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Naturally, we can understand the later engine unit to be slightly more performance oriented. Its engines will most likely be paired with a six-speed manual transmission system and come in a drive in all its four-wheels.

2015 Ford Troller T4 Exterior and Interior Features

In one word, we can say that the 2015 Ford Troller T4 is the current generation of 2004 Bronco model as they quite bear a striking resemblance to one another. It has acquired a look that is more in sync with the modern times and features sharp lines and bold cuts over its exterior. The headlights have acquired a rounded shape, fog lights have gotten smaller and LED lights have been mounted on its rear with a spare wheel placed in between lending a much more overall appearance. It also has wide fenders, glass panes on the roof and body made of fiberglass.

2015 Ford Troller T4 rear

The vehicle’s interior will be quite similar to the Ranger’s as we could tell by looking at the dashboard and its steering wheel. We can expect a spacious cabin along with comfortable seats with ample head and legroom. While its dashboard and centre console does not boast of any high tech gadgets or infotainment utilities, it does have control for radio, climate and navigation.

2015 Ford Troller T4 interior

At the centre of the dashboard, there are two air vents and a rotary knob below from where the air conditioning system can be activated.  There is an analog instrument cluster behind its steering wheel and a 4WD system activated via a knob.

2015 Ford Troller T4 Release Date and Price

While it is unclear if Ford plans to bring this model to the United States, we can expect it to go on sale by the end of 2015 in Brazil. Since 2015 Ford Troller T4 is an SUV that is being made in Brazil, you can expect this to cost about 96,000 Brazilian reals or about $46,000 when converted to U.S. dollars, which is slightly higher than the price of its current model.

2015, Ranchero

2015 Ford Ranchero New Truck

March 11, 2015

After an unexpected turn of events, Ford is now looking forward to bring a small sized pickup truck in the North American market. 2015 Ford Ranchero is a vehicle that will be significantly smaller than Ford F-150 and cost up to $6000 less for its base model. Its main attractions are increased fuel economy that has improved by about 24 percent, better performance and an extremely attractive redesigned exterior visual layout. This facelifted version promises to offer many other features that the market has been missing out on in the recent years.

2015 Ford Ranchero side

2015 Ford Ranchero Exterior and Modifications

The main changes in the car’s exterior are noticeable by a hexagonal grille that is simplistic in design and is completely different than any other Ranger model. The Ford Ranchero 2015 would have a unibody construction instead of the traditional body-on-frame design found on almost all pickup trucks sold in the U.S. Ford has taken to implement this system to set this vehicle apart from the others available in the market today. This is a welcome move, and we predict that it would gain a lot of attention once it’s released.

2015 Ford Ranchero Interior and Modifications

Inside the Ford Ranchero 2015, there would be comfortable quality seats along with increased cabin space to fit in some more spare tools. It would consist of a voice-activated navigation system, satellite radio and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link radar that would keep you updated about your destination and the current whereabouts.

2015 Ford Ranchero interior

There are other technology enhancements that include a decent quality audio system and advanced connectivity options such as Bluetooth. Based on official information, Ford is trying to make this car somewhat identical to the 1960’s version of Ranchero, which itself was a vehicle that was small but could fit in the world if you wanted to.

2015 Ford Ranchero Engine

No specific details have been made available yet, but we can expect the 2015 Ford Ranchero  to be powered by a next-gen 6.7 litre Flex Fuel V8 engine that is commonly found in other trucks like F-350, F-150 and few other heavy-duty powerhouse trucks. Ford has made no compromises as far as the engine is concerned, and they can expect to reap heavy rewards when it comes to sales figures. Being a cargo loading, off-roader, this vehicle should be able to power through most of the rough terrains that it comes across with much comfort and style. Look out for more information regarding the Powertrain later on in the future.

 2015 Ford Ranchero More News

The small truck segment is expected to heat up in the upcoming months as trucks like Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline and other GM’s midsize pickups are awaiting their release.

2015 Ford Ranchero rear

In addition to the aforementioned vehicles, the 2015 Ford Ranchero would further spark up the flame and reinvigorate the segment that had long been believed to have lost its charm. There is no official word available yet regarding the price of this product, but we are not expecting any drastic deviations than that of its competitors.

2016 Ford Escort Set For Chinese Auto Market

March 10, 2015

Ford now turns their attention towards the Chinese market and plans to bring in a low-cost alternative to its Focus car going by the name of 2016 Ford Escort. This launch, however, will make way for the re-entry of the classic Escort nameplate that racked up huge sales figures back in the 80’s and 90’s. One thing is to be noted that China has a very specific taste when it comes to cars, and it is not always the glitz and glamour of the vehicles that get a hold of people’s attention.

2016 Ford Escort front

2016 Ford Escort Exterior and Interior

Much like other Ford cars like Focus or Fusion, the 2016 Ford Escort has a similar style direction that speaks volumes about the brand’s signature. It’s front is highlighted by a large grille that is precise in angles, there are also lines that start from the front and extend all the way to its back giving the body more details. LED lights also make an appearance in the front part of this vehicle and compliment the angular grille design well. The sedan is characterized by supremely gorgeous looking sheet metal and four doors that appear longer than they are due to Ford’s styling cues.

2016 Ford Escort rear

Even though Ford did not reveal the car’s interior in the Shanghai Auto Show, we can take a safe bet at speculating as what to expect regarding its interior. This compact sedan will likely boast of increased cabin space, comfortable seats and necessary infotainment tools and safety equipments to make for a joyous ride. On premium trim variants, leather maybe used to cover the seats while soft materials can be used to cover up rest of the car’s interior. Overall, we can expect a perfect blend of luxury and comfort that will keep everyone happy.

2016 Ford Escort interior

Technology enhancements will likely start from its Dashboard being fitted with a touch-screen command system that will control the safety and entertainment features that include navigation, parking sensors, a good quality audio system, Bluetooth and many more. 2016 Ford Escort is based on the idea of meeting the necessities with style, rather than over-doing something and acting pretentious.

2016 Ford Escort Under the Hood

No official information is available regarding what engine will be used to power the car, but based on Ford’s primary aim, we can expect this car to come fitted with a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 160 horsepower. There is also a possibility that an EcoBoost variant might become available with higher speed expectancy of around 270 horsepower. Needless to say, more details will become available as we approach the car’s release date. Till then, stay tuned for more information about this section.

2016 Ford Escort Price and Availability

The already crowded sedan market of China will give the 2016 Ford Escort a tough time, so we expect the company to set a price tag that is both competitive and well within the range of the general public. Expect this car to cost around $17,000, which roughly amounts to 106,000 Chinese Yuan. Further details will be revealed as we get closer to its car’s release date.

2017, Super Duty

2017 Ford Super Duty Redesign

March 5, 2015

Although a variety of spy photos have surfaced of the 2017 Ford Super Duty, the American automaker has done an impeccable job camouflaging the vehicle. According to a bevy of industry insiders, the new Super Duty will receive a facelift; but the heavy camouflaging does little to confirm the new: badge, grille, taillights and headlights. Many believe that with its new design, the vehicle will closely mirror the look of the 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck. The test vehicle that has been spotted multiple times is notably stronger and larger than previous version. This is an indication that the Super Duty will be able to withstand a greater amount of effort as well as the ability to transport increased amounts of cargo. This should also improve the payload rating and towing capacity of the truck as well.

2017 Ford Super Duty front

2017 Ford Super Duty Engine Specs

According to ramped industry chatter, the 2017 Ford Super Duty F-Series most likely will receive its power from the all new Power Stroke diesel engine that has a capable output of 440 horsepower with 860 pound per feet of torque. This impressive powertrain is speculated to be intelligently mated with a ten speed automatic gearbox.

Yet another bit of chatter has the massive truck being powered by a 6.2 liter direct injection eight cylinder gas engine. Until Ford confirms the specifications, this is all mere conjecture. It will be interesting to see which of the predictions are closest to actuality and which are completely within the realm of wishful thinking. It is said that the concept version has been outfitted with a duo of suspension bundles that run with unexpected landscape necessities. The off road bundle is discretionary and intended for off asphalt capacities that are more forceful.

2017 Ford Super Duty Interior and Exterior Redesign

The vehicle is speculated to weigh in at an approximate 5,000 pounds, and have available seating for four adults. It has been rumored that the payload ability of the monstrosity will lean towards the side of small. Many consumers may not care much about that once they discover the following: vitality passage seats, guiding wheel, calfskin seat trim, 16 inch wheels, a six speaker stereo system, Bluetooth technology, OnStar, keyless passage and more.

2017 Ford Super Duty interior

The new 2017 Ford Super Duty is also said to have redesigned fog lamps as well as full slide plates and slope start help that are guaranteed to make it quite attractive to consumers once it finally makes its way onto the market. The interior of the Super Duty’s cabin is suspected to be quite modern, sleek and spacious. Both the driver and passengers will find their time within the vehicle to be comfortable and quite enjoyable. As rugged as the exterior is slated to be, the interior is speculated to be designed with the consumer squarely in mind.

2017 Ford Super Duty side

2017 Ford Super Duty Release Date and Price

The price and precise release date of the 2017 Ford Super Duty is yet to be revealed to the public at large by the American automotive giant. Many agree that the vehicle will find its way onto dealership showrooms by the close of 2016; but the pricing has yet to receive a plausible prediction.

The previous version of the Mach 1 was introduced into the market in 2004.

The 2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1 not only packs a lot of power but it also looks very attractive as well as contemporary. Ford has not as yet made any announcements for this car but rumors and reports suggest that the new car will have a downgraded engine. In fact, these cars should be powered by four-cylinder engines though it is still not clear whether this will be the only option available. A four-cylinder engine will not be able to produce sufficient power for the Mach 1, which means that the company will offer more options.

Even so, one can expect this car to have plenty of energy as well as pace. It is also known that the company offers three engines including the five-liter Coyote, which produces as many as four hundred and thirty-five horsepower. The other engine options according to reports are the four and six cylinder engines. The 3-liter EcoBoost engine produces as many as three hundred and ten horsepower but the V6 variant is a 3.7-liter engine that only churns out three hundred horsepower.

2017 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Design

Details about this new car are scanty but there are sure to be some subtle changes made to the car’s body and there should also be some major performance upgrades. This offering from Ford is expected to compete with the Camaro Z/28. The roof may be lowered quite dramatically and the same could happen to the glasshouse. The hood and the front may also be lengthened by at least six inches to give the car a mean and rear-drive stance there are also reports that the side sills will be extended to wrap each wheelhouse in a much tighter manner. Finally, there are also reports that the car will have a ducktail flip spoiler.

The new engine will have a lower fuel rating than the previous model. This will occur because the engine will come with an electric power servo steering wheel and transmission, this will significantly decrease the current 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway rating it has. Rear wheel drive and a 6 speed automatic transmission will come standard on all 2017 Expedition models. All-wheel drive will be available as an option.
