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 1 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Look out, Google: Enough General Motors employees wanted to arrive at meetings covered in sweat that the company has introduced a bike-sharing program. Okay, a desire for damp, winded employees probably had less to do with GM’s decision than the rising popularity of active-workplace programs, but still—up here in Michigan, it’s pretty warm outside. Employees can now pedal across 330 acres of GM’s techni ...

Used No Illusion: Used-Car Values Mostly Unaffected by Recalls

Sep 1 2014 9:53am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Every time we see someone in a Chevy Cobalt, we resist the urge to ask them if they’ve made plans to sell it. As it turns out, those folks might still receive a decent return, as owners of these recalled cars—and many other models with highly publicized problems—aren’t dumping them en masse. According to a report from Black Book, a trade publication that estimates residual values, some Cobalts actually increased in value after General Motors initially r ...
