  • 2018 Ford Fusion

    New reports surfaced on Wednesday claiming Ford is planning to concentrate production of the next-generation Fusion mid-size sedan in China. The current Fusion is produced at plants in Spain, Mexico and China. However, Automotive News (subscription required) and Reuters have learned from their respective sources that production of the next-generation Fusion, due in 2020, will take place exclusively in China. The Spanish plant is safe as Ford in November said it will spend $887 million at the site to produce the next-generation Kuga, Europe's version of the Escape compact SUV. It’s not...

  • 2013 Lincoln MKS

    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. Sadly, like the similarly updated MKT we saw earlier, the stylists at Lincoln were unable to change the look dramatically, which means the toothy grilles are here to stay a little while longer. Though Lincoln is on a mission to transform itself into the great American luxury brand it once was, going so far as to establish a crack team to turn around its woes and spending $1 billion on the development of up to seven new or refreshed...

  • 2009 Lincoln MKS by RKSport

    Among the many turbocharged tuner cars and monster-truck four-wheelers crowding the SEMA showfloor next week, there will be a cadre of Lincoln MKS sedans, suitably modified but standing somewhat back from the extremism of the rest of the show. Three of the cars will be on display, each offering a focus on a different aspect of the MKS' broad appeal. First up is the MKS by 3dCarbon. With a design centered around a 'Euro Series' styling kit and large multi-spoke alloy wheels, the 3dCarbon car takes a fairly reserved angle on the MKS, but brings some German flair to it at the same time. With a...
