New Ford model won't show up for at least a year

Ford has introduced a new member of the Transit family called the 2014 Transit Connect Wagon. This isn't like a wagon you would've seen in the 70s, this is more like a minivan. Ford promises different versions of the vehicle seating five or seven passengers and having plenty of space for cargo. The vehicle will be offered in XL, XLT, and Titanium series.

All models will feature fold flat seating and two engine options. The standard engine option will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an optional 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. The EcoBoost engine is expected to achieve over 30 mpg on the highway.

The Transit Connect Wagon will also be able to tow 2000 pounds when properly equipped. Either engine option available on the Wagon will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for the vehicle is unknown at this time. The Transit Connect Wagon should be on dealer lots by Q4 2013.

DeLorean DMC-12 illustrates how a good idea goes bad with Xcar

Oct 20 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, MISC When John Z. DeLorean set out to build a car, he had good intentions - it'd be small, efficient, sporty, affordable and safe, complete with a rust-free, stainless-steel body. The outcome, though, was a lamentable mess, a coupe whose prestige rests more with its gullwing doors and its star-making role in Back To The Future than in its actual driving character. Among the many knocks on the DeLorean DMC-12 was ...

2015 Lincoln MKC 2.3 EcoBoost AWD Tested: Comfort and Confidence in a Great Escape

Oct 20 2014 5:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A decade from now, automotive gods willing and if everything goes according to plan, we might recognize this MKC as Lincoln’s great escape. That’s escape with a lowercase “e.” Because while the MKC is based on the Ford Escape, Lincoln has finally, gently broken free from its reputation for building overpriced, reskinned Fords. The rudderless luxury brand appears to be gradually learning the fine art of parts sharing that has been so successful for brand ...
