Ford to debut a new economical car in Switzerland

Ford will reportedly be debuting a new small vehicle at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is called the EcoSport and looks to be something of a small crossover SUV. It rather reminds me of the Nissan Juke in some respects. The vehicle is based on Ford's B- platform.

In European markets the vehicle would get a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine with the option of a 1.0-liter EcoBoost. Shoppers in Europe are also expected to be able to choose a 1.5-liter diesel engine currently used in the European Ford Fiesta.

There is no word on official launch date. The vehicle is expected to be very reasonably priced. At this time there is no indication of whether the vehicle will be coming to the US.

Oct 21 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The photographed 1953 Woodill Wildfire Series II was one of the cars in the class that I was recently judging at the Santa Fe Concorso in New Mexico. Apparently it is the first confirmed factory built Wildfire of the 15 examples that ever left the factory; only nine are known to exist today. Most of the 285 remaining cars built were sold as kits. This car was also one of the three cars used in the movie Johnny Dark, whi ...

Toca (Figuratively) Burns Down 2015 Hyundai Genesis for SEMA, Builds It Back Up Into a “Steel Phoenix”

Oct 21 2014 4:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

“How now, turbo Tau?” That, presumably, is the question Hyundai hopes show goers will ask when it pulls the wraps off of the Steel Phoenix at the upcoming 2014 SEMA Show. Conceived by Toca Marketing Group, the hopped-up Genesis with a bad-ass name features a twin-turbocharged version of Hyundai’s 5.0-liter Tau V-8 pumping out 600 horsepower. A 180-hp bump over the stock 2015 Genesis 5.0′s output isn’t something to sniff at, f ...

It's got a new chief executive, a new engine deal in place with Mercedes-AMG, a new platform under development and - if the new Lagonda sedan is anything to go by - maybe a new design direction in th ...
