If you've recently shopped for a new vehicle, you've probably noticed that prices have increased significantly since the Covid-19 crisis. This trend has been exacerbated by the removal of many affordable models and entry-level versions from the market. As a result, the average price for a new vehicle has climbed to nearly $69,000.   However, rest assured that there are still affordable models available in the new vehicle market. And don't think ...
Quietly making its mark, the Ford Escape stands as the second most popular vehicle in the Ford lineup, and that's something worth highlighting. It's a vehicle I particularly love for several reasons.

I would like to tell you that everything is always clear and straightforward in the automotive industry, but that's far from the case.

Certainly, the model's lineup has evolved considerably over time, with several aesthetic tweaks made both to the bodywork ...
Ford understands that buyers appreciate having choices, which is why the manufacturer introduced the Bronco Sport to the market. The model is based on the same platform as the Ford Escape but offers a completely different appearance. Ford has also chosen to associate it with the Bronco family, giving it a rugged look and enhanced off-road capabilities, and that was the best decision to make. So, despite its proximity to the Escape, the Bronco remains ...
I must admit that the Ford Bronco is one of my favorites this year. I would be lying if I said I didn\'t miss this vehicle, even though my test drive dates back several months.

Its 4x4 drivetrain is particularly effective on all surfaces, making it a competent vehicle ...
2024 is an important year for the Ford Mustang as the model has been completely renewed. With a new look, new technologies, and new versions, the American manufacturer has gone all out once again. Well, we wouldn\'t expect anything less, as the legendary American muscle car is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.   The seventh generation of the Mustang presents itself with a square and even more muscular silhouette than the previous ...
Ford offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of vehicles, which means that very few people find themselves obliged to buy an Expedition because it\'s the only option left for them. Unless you have a family of 8, a trailer weighing over 6,000 pounds, and need a cargo space of over 2,500 liters, all together, there\'s a good chance you\'ll find your perfect match in another more affordable and better-suited vehicle. However, the Ford Expedition ...
The sixth generation of the Ford Mustang is about to bid farewell, and with it, the Mach 1 version will disappear. This special edition, whose production lasted barely three years, remains a tribute to the model\'s past.   From the Bullitt to the California Special, the GT350, and the GT500, the Ford Mustang from 2015 to 2023 has offered us numerous variants, each more interesting than the last.

If we disregard the Raptor and Raptor R versions, the Ford F-150 offers a power of 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque with the Powerboost engine. That\'s already a lot and more than enough for the majority of people.   However, there is a small proportion of buyers who would like to have more power and who may not necessarily be able to get their hands on a Raptor, Shelby, or other performance variations of the American truck. Ford\'s ...
Several Ford Explorers, partially covered in heavy camouflage, have recently been spotted on the road, suggesting a significant update for the 2024 model year.   The camouflage has been applied to the rear and front of the American manufacturer\'s SUV, indicating that it is not a complete redesign but rather an update. This makes sense as the current generation of the Explorer has only been on the market for 4 years.   What could change?   Although ...
The famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, celebrated its 100th anniversary last weekend, and Ford took advantage of the occasion to announce its return to competition in the GT3 category.   As the name suggests, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is a race that goes around the clock twice, testing the endurance of the drivers as well as the reliability of the cars.

However, to the disappointment of fans in North America, this ultimate edition of the electric SUV will be exclusively sold in the European market.

When it comes to a car like the Ford Mustang, it\'s the gadgets and details that make all the difference. Well, it seems that the American manufacturer has found a way to make its muscular sports car even more fun because it is now possible to make the engine roar using the car\'s remote control (key).   I know, at first glance, it seems totally useless and even ridiculous. Nevertheless, if you have ever owned a sports car, you have surely ...

  Some 1970s and 1980s trends are coming back later, which is why Ford chose this period as a source of inspiration for its 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition. Technically, we celebrated the truck\'s arrival on the market 75 years ago. So yes, if you made the equation here, 75 years ago brings us to the 1950s.
