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.

Aug 1 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Honda is discontinuing its Fit EV by the end of the year as it concentrates on other forms of electrified vehicles like Accord PHEV and the production version of the futuristic-looking FCEV concept that rocked the 2013 L.A. auto show. The Fit is the latest casualty of Honda’s evolving approach to electromobility. Earlier this year, Honda announced its decision to discontinue the slow-selling Insight hybrid, but this news regarding the Fit EV is, well, news considering the push toward ...

Kymco Quannon 150 Taiwan Motorcycle Industry News When I am out and around motorcycle exhibitions it’s not uncommon (on hearing that I am a Chinese motorcycle journalist) for people to ask me for my opinions on motorcycle production companies Kymco and Sym as if they are Chinese motorcycle manufacturers.

This isn’t Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, but it’s probably the next best thing. In what is likely the oddest of odd couples, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and music producer Deadmau5 went for a coffee run in Deadmau5’s Nyan Cat-wrapped 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider F1 Edition (a.k.a. the Purrari), and the whole trip was filmed by a dashboard camera. The ensuing 30-minute cruise to and from Tim Hortons resulted in some surprisingly frank, and sometimes hilarious, moments between the mayor a ...
