2017 Ford Fusion reimagines family sedan

The new 2017 Ford Fusion sedan continues to be a game changer among midsize sedans, with the most technologically advanced lineup ever – including two hybrid models and a new all-wheel-drive Fusion V6 Sport engineered to leave other family sedans in the dust. The Fusion V6 Sport and the new Fusion Platinum add to a lineup featuring three EcoBoost engine choices, along with two hybrids: the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid.

The 2017 Fusion V6 Sport is a performance sedan unlike anything in the segment with a twin-turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost V6 delivering a projected 325 horsepower and 350 lbs.-ft. of torque. Fusion V6 Sport adds continuously controlled damping for real-time suspension tuning based on setup and road inputs. The system features pothole detection technology that, in less than the blink of an eye, adjusts the shock absorbers to greatly reduce the severity of impact transmitted to occupants. Power and handling are complemented by unique, performance-inspired styling inside and out. The look is distinguished by an aggressive exterior with deeper air intakes and a gloss black-finish mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, rear spoiler and dual twin exhaust outlets.

2016 Ford Taurus is smartly upscale

With an aggressively taut exterior design and an equally compelling interior arrangement the Ford Taurus sedan features upscale design, impeccable driving dynamics and class-leading technologies. Available in SE, SEL and Limited trim levels, updates and enhancements for 2016 include: SYNC 3 – Ford’s latest in-car connectivity technology; three new exterior colors – Shadow Black, Blue Jeans and Guard; standard rearview camera for SE; reverse sensing system and intelligent access with push button start for SEL; and standard power-adjustable pedals with memory feature for Limited. A power moonroof is also an available option for the Limited.

Standard power for the front-drive Taurus is generated by Ford’s proven Duratec 3.5L V-6 prime mover bolted to the 6F50 six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The advanced 2.0L EcoBoost turbo-charged four-cylinder engine is an available option. The EcoBoost prime mover is joined to a 6F35 six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is also available.

To match its athletic looks, the Taurus features sporty driving dynamics. Chassis and suspension components are tuned to deliver on the sporty and aggressive design with optimized roll stiffness for cornering control, responsive steering with sharp turn-in and precision accuracy. This chassis tuning of the MacPherson front struts and multi-link rear suspension reflects Ford Global DNA, defined by responsive steering and handling, while maintaining a comfortable ride quality.

Review: 2016 Ford Explorer continues to soften the SUV experience

Now, for 2016, Ford substantially upgrades the Explorer, revising the styling, improving the ride and handling, installing a new turbocharged engine option, offering additional convenience technologies, and debuting a luxury-lined Platinum trim level.

The power of choice

Ford offers three sophisticated and fuel-efficient powertrain choices for the 2016 Explorer. On lower-spec models, a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower is standard, with a new 280-horsepower, turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder available as an option. Despite losing two cylinders and 10 horsepower, the smaller turbocharged engine is the better choice because it provides more get-up-and-go at low engine speeds, and is expected to provide better fuel economy.

In my opinion, the most desirable of the Explorer’s power plants is the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 in the Sport and new Platinum models. It makes a whopping 365 horsepower, and it comes with standard all-wheel drive.

Ford says Mustang is now the world’s top sports coupe

Ford, which revamped the current Mustang with foreign sales in mind, says the pony car was the world’s best-selling sports coupe last year, based on new sales numbers.

About 19,000 out of a total of 141,000 Mustangs were sold outside the U.S. last year. Some of the hottest demand was in Europe, were 16,000 cars were sold. Despite high gas prices abroad, most customers are ordering the high-performance, but more fuel thirsty, V-8 engine.

“U.S. consumers have enjoyed interesting foreign sports cars for decades, so it was time for the Americans to return the favor with the worldwide launch of the new Mustang,” says Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst.
