    Ford is busy readying a new version of the Explorer for the 2020 model year. We already know that the police version will come standard with a hybrid powertrain. We also know that a Sporty ST version is in the works. Now, after a bit of information has leaked out on the Internet, we also know which engines we can expect to find under the hood. Jalopnik caught wind of a leaked Explorer ordering guide that appeared on a model-specific forum. The police version will come with a choice of three powertrains; a 3.3-liter V-6, the 3.3-liter V-6 with hybrid bits, and a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6. Each...

    Chris Harris Drives The 1.0-Liter EcoBoost Formula Ford On Road And Track: Video

    Ford’s formula race car powered by its award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine may seem tame considering it’s only producing around 177 horsepower in street-legal trim, but as Chris Harris found out there’s certainly nothing tame about a turbocharged and direct-injected 1.0-liter...

  • 2013 Ford FF1

    Ford will drum up further excitement surrounding its FF1 track car by presenting it at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK this July, and taking it up the event’s famous hill climb. The street-legal trackster is powered by a tiny 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, yet it can lap the Nürburgring in just 7:22 (when its output is tuned to 202 horsepower), making it faster around the arduous German race track than cars like the Ferrari Enzo and the Pagani Zonda. At the same time, its downsized three-cylinder design, direct fuel injection, turbocharging and variable valve timing all...

    1.0-Liter Ford EcoBoost Beats Ferrari Enzo At Nürburgring

    Given a choice of vehicles in which to lap the famous Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit in Germany, something with a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine may not be your first pick. As you're often told in life though, you can't judge a book by its cover. When that 1.0-liter engine is Ford's new...

  • Ford Fiesta ST Concept, to be shown at 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show

    Ford’s upcoming Fiesta ST will debut with a new four-cylinder EcoBoost engine displacing 1.6 liters and delivering around 177 horsepower, but in the future we may see the engine downsized though at no cost to performance. A Ford exec has revealed that the automaker’s latest three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which displaces just 1.0 liter, could be tuned to deliver as much as 177 horsepower. The tiny three-cylinder engine will debut in the Fiesta and Focus models in Europe later this year, before finally reaching the U.S. sometime next year, though only with 123 horsepower. But...

    Ford’s new global design strategy so far appears to be working, with the largely European designed and engineered Fiesta and Focus compacts doing particularly well around the globe, including in the U.S. where such cars have proven to be a hard sell in the past. More recently we saw the 2013...

    At this week’s 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show Lincoln is showing off its latest MKS luxury sedan, which has just undergone a facelift for the 2013 model year.

    Lincoln’s full-size MKT crossover hasn’t sold in the quantities the automaker would like to see, so the model gets a fairly substantial refresh for the 2013 model year. Most apparent, even to casual onlookers, is the refined exterior styling, starting with a less-pronounced waterfall...

    Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 proved one point to truck and sedan buyers; thanks to technology like gasoline direct injection and twin-turbocharging, it was indeed possible to squeeze V-8 power and drivability out of a V-6. Their 2.0-liter EcoBoost four looks to prove that V-6 power is...
