This throwback Ford GT paint job is drop-dead gorgeous

Thanks to a new throwback livery, Ford has taken the GT, perhaps the sickest car the company has ever made, and made it even better.

It’s called the Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition and it’s a limited edition color scheme for the new Ford GT supercar inspired by the Number 2 Le Mans-winning GT40 from 1966. The new GT has drawn a lot of comparisons with the old GT40, not least of which is winning Le Mans, which Ford repeated in the GTE Pro class at the famed 24-hour race.

The black exterior is available in gloss or matte finish, with silver stripes and exposed carbon fiber. White #2 graphics adorn the hood and doors, with gold satin clearcoat 20-inch wheels and black lug nuts finishing off the outside. The interior gets more #2 graphics, gold appliqués on the instrument panel, the X-brace on the seats, and the shift paddles, and a special blue webbing on the seat belts.

2017 Ford Escape 1.5L EcoBoost FWD

Ford’s second-bestselling nameplate behind only the F-series pickup, the Escape perennially ranks among the sales leaders in the booming compact-crossover segment. To defend that position in the face of rising competition, the company cooked up this refreshed version for 2017.

So What’s New?

The 2017 Escape Titanium we drove for this test boasted a host of new features, starting with its 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Making 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, it represents the middle of the Escape’s revised powertrain lineup—a 168-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder remains the base powerplant; a new 245-hp 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four is the hot one. A six-speed automatic is still the only transmission in the lineup and comes with paddle shifters if you choose either turbocharged engine. Both turbo versions also come standard with automatic stop/start, which functions smoothly but can be turned off.

A redesign of the center stack and console—wave goodbye to the lever-actuated parking brake—added enough new cubbies to accommodate the devices of even the most connected family, and there are plenty of 12-volt and USB power points to make sure those devices stay charged. The Sync 3 infotainment system, which was new for 2016, is intuitive and quick, and it’s standard in all but the base trim level. New this year is Sync Connect, an app that can remotely start a connected vehicle, preheat or precool the cabin, and check fluid and battery-charge levels, among other functions. Paired with FordPass (available via the same app), this is Ford’s first step toward an imagined future where everything from service appointments to parking reservations to purchases at restaurants and stores can be made using the Ford portal.

Fiesta continues to set the bar for competitors.

The 2016 Ford Fiesta packs a big punch for a compact. The Fiesta sedan and hatchback offer various amenities for a fun, yet comfortable drive.

Who would have bet that Ford would ever offer not just one but two different turbocharged engines in its smallest car? For 2014, the Fiesta’s regular 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 120 horsepower was joined by two optional turbocharged powerplants. The first was Ford’s global 1.0-liter EcoBoost® three-cylinder, which was the first three-cylinder sold in North America in decades. With 123 horsepower, it doesn’t beat the base car by much, but it’s the 148 pound-feet of torque that makes the difference.

Review: Ford C-Max Hybrid is very efficient, affordable

Over the years, trucks and utility vehicles have always gotten the top billing at the Ford Motor Co.

But Ford has plenty of other innovative vehicles in its current product portfolio such as the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which is undoubtedly one of the best hybrid models for sale in the United States.

The C-Max Hybrid has plenty of power and is quite responsive under all sorts of driving situations. It also delivers a comfortable ride on varied roads and at different speeds. It also handles nicely and is smartly packaged so it can carry both passengers, luggage or in a pinch a fair amount of cargo. It is also quite maneuverable in tight spaces, which is a big plus in city driving.

The heart of the C-Max Hybrid is its powertrain. The power in the C-Max Hybrid comes from the combination of a gasoline engine and a battery-driven electric motor. When powered by gasoline, C-Max Hybrid uses a new 2-liter four-cylinder engine. The electric motors are powered by lithium-ion battery systems that have proven quite durable over the years. Lithium-ion battery packs also are more efficient than the nickel-metal-hydride batteries used in first-generation hybrid vehicles. They are 25 percent smaller and 50 percent lighter.
