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.

Sep 29 2014 6:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Can Ford’s Smallest Truck Engine Cut It?When it was officially announced that the ’15 Ford F-150 would be getting an optional 2.7L EcoBoost V-6, the truck enthusiast community almost immediately started raising concerns, or less charitably, casting aspersions on Ford’s smallest-displacement truck engine.

Suck It, Mustang: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Loses More Camo, Comes Into Clearer Focus

Sep 29 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A lighter and tighter Chevrolet Camaro this way comes. The last time we checked in on Chevy’s pony car was a few months ago, when we were published aerial spy photographs of the car being evaluated at General Motors’ proving grounds. That prototype was well-camouflaged, but its general shape gave it away as the 2016 Camaro. The car pictured here is clearly a Camaro, and its details are now on clearer display—and from a m ...
