2019 Ford Edge ST



INDIANAPOLIS — Ford had a really good idea back in 1989.  It commissioned Yamaha to conjure a high-revving V6 engine for what became the Taurus SHO, a sport sedan that could take the family to church, and afterwards, kick dad and mom into twisty two-lane backroads for a very spirited Sunday drive.
Through generations, the SHO gained a bigger V6, small V8, and finally, a twin-turbo V6 in today’s iteration.  Well, sedans are quickly going out in favor of crossovers.  No worries because Ford is already building a better SHO, the 2019 Ford Edge ST.

2019 Ford Ranger



SAN DIEGO — Back in 2011, after years of lackluster sales, Ford bumped off its mid-sized Ranger pickup. Dodge/Ram did the same with its Dakota, and then a year later GM pulled the plug on the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Those moves effectively ceded the mid-sized truck segment to just two players: Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier.

Ford Mustang GT — The muscle car lives

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

In about a year the iconic Mustang will be the last car standing at Ford Motor Company. The entire fleet of coupe and sedans is scheduled to be terminated in the U.S. in favor of the current popular flavor — crossover SUVs and light trucks. Lucky for Mustang fans — and sports car enthusiasts — the current pony car is enjoying worldwide success or it would have probably been on the chopping block as well.

Ford EcoSport — Driving small

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is misnamed — it's not particularly economical and it isn't exceptionally sporty. But the sub-compact crossover, which entered the U.S. market this year — several years after being introduced in Europe — has a lot going for it in a growing and competitive segment. And it plugs a hole in Ford's ever-expanding crossover SUV lineup after the company announced it was casting off its passenger cars.

2018 Ford EcoSport



INDIANAPOLIS — In the fastest-growing automotive segment, Ford only had one entry.  Compact crossovers have become the new mid-size sedan as sub-compact crossovers supplant sub-compact cars.  Ford has the Escape crossover, but needed something a little smaller — a vehicle to compete with the Honda HR-V, Chevy Trax, and Subaru Crosstrek.  Fortunately, there was the little EcoSport being built in India and it arrives stateside for 2018.

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Recently Ford CEO Jim Hackett released a plan that would overhaul three-quarters of its North American lineup by 2020 focusing primarily on sport utility vehicles of all sizes and pickup trucks including the new mid-sized Ranger. It seems to us that Ford's upcoming transformation into primarily a truck brand got off the ground with the all-new full-sized 2018 Expedition.

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

It's been more than 50 years since big horsepower started showing up in family sedans.
