We get behind the wheel for a first drive of the redesigned 2015 Ford Edge. If you need a fast, fun family-hauler, this might be the car for you.

Ford produced the first 2015 American made Ford Transit Van in Kansas City. New models go on sale this summer with 3.7L Flex Fuel V6 standard.
Last month I attended the Ford 2014 Model Year, where I felt very out of place with colleagues (can you call them colleagues if you don’t get paid?) from the big car publications and also felt quite at home with my cronies from Internet obscurity. But I was there to drive some cars and give some impressions, and that is what I plan to do.
The C-Max is the first hybrid that I have spent a significant amount of time with. My other experiences are an hour with a Prius and 3 laps of a test track in a Focus Electric. I liked the Focus Electric and was underwhelmed with the Prius, but the C-Max has opened my eyes to hybrids! I learned a lot about myself, my driving style, and what it means to be a hybrid driver slow.
The much-anticipated BMW i3 EV will arrive at U.S. dealerships in January 2014, with the hybrid i3’s following a couple months after. The BMW i3 EV will be priced at $34,500 in the US., before tax credits, offering an affordable, electric rear-drive EV.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, has stated in an interview with Bloomberg that they are building Model S’s faster than you can spell, “Porsche Doppelkupplung.” He didn’t actually say that. His actual quote? “We’re above 400 a week at the current manpower, and not trivially above it.” He didn’t elaborate to the actual number of Model S’s being produced per week, but it means Tesla production is amping up even beyond expectations.
I was invited to Dearborn, Michigan on Ford’s dime to drive the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the 2014 Fusion Energi, but we’re already off topic. We are here to talk about trucks! While I was in Dearborn, Ford presented us with the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, an EcoBoost, performance-centric pickup that is everything right-and-wrong about the auto industry.. This is a truck that takes me back…
Christopher Tracy reviews the 2013 Ford Fusion with the 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine. Does the tiny turbocharged engine live up to Ford’s promises of performance and fuel economy? Hit the jump to find out.
As cute as the 2013 Ford Focus ST is, there is nothing vulnerable about it, as my test drive quickly found out.
The all-new 2013 Ford Escape is on dealership lots, and besides sporting a new look it also has a new suite of engines and cool technologies that make this little SUV a big bargain. After I just spent a week with the 2013 Ford Escape, I came away reasonably impressed. Here’s why.
The Ram has Hemi power, burns natural gas, only costs $25 to fill the CNG tanks, and could flatten most family sedans without batting an eye. It’s a set of 36’s away from being a Monster Truck…and yet it still counts as a green vehicle.
