    Ford ended production of the Taurus for North America just this month, but the nameplate lives on in China where Ford's been selling a next-generation model since 2015. The Chinese-market Taurus is based on a stretched version of the CD4 platform found in the Fusion, as opposed to the outdated D3 platform that underpinned our Taurus, and it's positioned as a bit of a luxury cruiser. It even offers power-reclining rear seats complete with massage function. Photos of an updated version of the Chinese-market Taurus have now surfaced ahead of a debut at April's Auto Shanghai 2019. The photos...

    Ford has been spotted testing a new subcompact crossover SUV related to the recently redesigned Fiesta. The prototypes are heavily camouflaged, although we can clearly see the design's been influenced by the Fiesta. Ford isn't bringing its redesigned Fiesta to the United States due to the decision last year to drop all car models bar the Mustang. Instead we have to settle for the Ecosport crossover in the subcompact segment. This new crossover is expected to replace the Ecosport, possibly under a new name. Above it will sit the upcoming baby Bronco and Escape in the compact segment. While the...

Output in the new ST is milder to suit its front-wheel-drive layout, coming in at 276 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That compares...

  • F-150 Harley-Davidson, Chicago Auto Show

    Ahead of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, Harley Trucks debuted the Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson. Unlike the past, this is not an official Ford package, but instead, a third-party doing the upgrades. The latest F-150 Harley-Davidson takes a very different approach from the official Ford models from the past. Rather than a lower ride and sporting intentions to match the sleek look of the motorcycles, Harley Trucks opted to take an off-road approach. The truck features all-terrain tires, Harley-Davidson tuned Fox performance shocks, Flowmaster performance exhaust, and a functional ram air hood. All of...
