Ford Taurus – Ford Taurus commercial



Ford Taurus (sixth generation) – Ford Taurus commercial

The 2013 refresh of the Taurus was unveiled at the 2011 New York Auto Show and bears cosmetic changes, new engines and new technology. The most obvious change at first glance is the new front fascia incorporating sharper angles very similar to the recent facelift of the Ford Territory in Australia.

Changes to the rear of the car were minor with the only noticeable change being new taillights and dual exhaust tips (only the SHO has true dual exhaust while the other trim levels use a single exhaust that splits under the car). While the interior remains mostly unchanged, the Taurus now incorporates the MyFord Touch system which means a new head unit with 8″ touch screen, steering wheel and interactive gauge cluster. Other features new to the 2013 Taurus include a heated steering wheel, and an all new Sony sound system featuring HD Radio and iTunes Tagging. Additional interior features include Multicontour seats with Active Motion (massage), push-button start, auto high beams and a rear view camera.

The engines available on the face lifted Taurus are an 2.0 L EcoBoost engine with 240 hp (179 kW; 243 PS) and 366 N·m (270 lb·ft) of torque while achieving 22/32/26 mpg. The standard engine is the 3.5 Duratec with 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque while achieving 19/23/29 mpg. On SHO models there is a 3.5 L turbocharged V6 272 kW (370 PS; 365 hp) of power and 475 N·m (350 lb·ft) of torque. This engine is paired with six-speed high capacity 6F55 SelectShift Automatic.

The 2013 Taurus SHO’s European rivals are the Volvo S60 T6 R-Design, the BMW 550i (F10), the Mercedes E550 (W213), and the Porsche Panamera 4S.

It became available at dealerships starting in March 2012 and this generation had become the First Generation and arrived in the Middle East for the 2013 model year and replaced the Ford Crown Victoria which had ended at the very end of its 2012 model year, says Wikipedia.

Ford’s Advanced Prototyping, Personalization and Low-Volume Production (Video)



Ford’s Advanced Prototyping, Personalization and Low-Volume Production

Ford engineers are developing a highly flexible, first-of-its-kind, patented technology to rapidly form sheet metal parts for low-volume production applications.

Once fully developed, the technology (Ford Freeform Fabrication Technology, or F3T) will allow for lower costs and ultrafast delivery times for prototypes — within three business days versus conventional methods that take anywhere from two to six months.

FORD Ranger – Ford Ranger & Ford Ranger XLT



FORD Ranger – Ford Ranger & Ford Ranger XLT

The Ford Ranger, code named T6, was unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The T6 replaces two regional Ranger platforms: the Mazda BT-50-derived model sold in the Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions and the North American model sold in select Latin American markets.

Although the T6 Ranger will be offered in 180 markets globally, it is not currently planned to be sold in the United States or Canada, due to the new platform being too close in size and cost to the F-150, and due to overall declining sales of compact pickups in North America. However it is offered in the United Arab Emirates along side the F-150 and Super Duty.

Ford initially planned a mid-size truck based on a modified F-150 chassis for the North American market named the F-100; however, this was shelved in favour of offering the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine on the F-150. Additionally, American and Canadian safety and emissions standards as well as the long-standing 25% import tariff imposed on non-American built light trucks prevent the T6 Ranger from being imported into North America. Likewise, safety and emissions standards in ECE-compliant nations, the need for right-hand drive in certain international markets, and the physical size of the F-150 prevent it from being globalised.

Production is expected to commence in summer 2011, starting with Thailand’s Rayong plant, with production in South Africa and Argentina to follow.[6] Additionally, Mazda will build a badge-engineered version of the T6 as the second generation BT-50.
