LAST August I got behind the wheel of the new Ford Mustang convertible for the first time and wet weather denied me the opportunity to get the top down.The manual gearbox version of the same car arrived last week and again our pathetic summer climate prevented me from getting the full experience and enjoying that superb V8 rumble to the max.Instead I had to content myself with rolling the windows down when I fired it up to listen to the glorious soundtrack.The Mustang is one of the...

A NEW baby SUV is on the way from Ford which has revealed its latest EcoSport - available for the first time as a proper 4x4.The new EcoSport, due for release later this year, will also mark the debut of Ford's new 1.5-litre diesel EcoBlue diesel engine.Developing 125ps and with a six-speed manual gearbox it gives the new EcoSport 4x4 a claimed fuel return of 63mpg with CO2 emissions of 119g/km.Restyled to create more rugged looks, the new EcoSport is now in the same vein as Ford's...

OVER the years Ford has always tried to add various ‘posh' or slightly up-market versions of their normal model range and with considerable success.These top-trimmed models have always proved popular while Ford has always relied on the Italians, well regarded worldwide as top car designers, to instill some flair and panache.Back in the Seventies it was the work of the Turin Ghia studios, created by Giacinto Ghia, that created Ghia versions of the Granada, Capri, Cortina and Escort...

LOADED with kit the Titanium X sits almost at the top of the Kuga range and is popular with Ford fans.Along with the rest of the range it received a major refresh at the start of this year to help it stay in contention with the rest of the crossover pack.The changes were hardly drastic but they were important as the Kuga was trailing the opposition in some areas.The third generation is now more spacious and comfortable and much improved on the first model that arrived back in...

FOR any enthusiastic driver the fast Ford Escort has always set the pulse racing.And one of the most exciting examples was the neat little Mexico based on the Mk1 Escort of 1970.Ford's competition operation at Boreham, Essex saw the potential of this car and a twin cam Lotus engine was duly installed.Very fast though this car was when it came to considering Ford's entries for the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally, Ford driver Roger Clark suggested replacing the powerful but...

AN initiative to get old cars off the road to improve air quality is being introduced by Ford which is bringing back a scrappage scheme.The company, which makes some of Britain's most popular models, is offering incentives of up to £7,000 to encourage drivers to switch to newer, less polluting vehicles.The programme will start on September 1 and targets van drivers as well as cars.Ford estimates that taking older models off the road would save 15 million tons of CO2 a year and...

FORD took on board more than 22,000 comments from research clinics and surveys as it went about giving its Kuga SUV a mid-life refresh. The hope, of course, was a better car.How much better? Well, you can now push a button to wake up the new SYNC 3 connectivity system and tell the car "I need a coffee", to be directed to a nearby cafe. Same applies to airport, hotels, car parks and the like.Which is hardly a make or break feature, but another example of how smarty-pants electronics is...

IF you like your current Ford Fiesta, you're going to love the new oneEssentially, just the name and trim levels have been carried over to the models now reaching showrooms which get revised engines, a six-speed manual gearbox for the first time and a lot of extra equipment and features.Out goes the dual-clutch automatic transmission in favour of a more conventional torque-converter and only the base model is fitted with a five-speed box.A bigger five-door bodystyle will dominate...

THE Ford Fiesta has consistently been the top selling car in Britain and since 2008 over a million have been put on our roads, while over four decades about 4.5 million have been registered.Those are impressive numbers, but the new seventh generation model now reaching showrooms is arguably the best since it was launched in 1976.It comes at a significant time for Ford of Britain because sales of all new cars generally have started to tail off and in June the Fiesta lost its place at...

A COUPLE of miles into the drive I realised the latest offering to come from Ford was humming quietly along the main road - in fourth gear.If ever you needed a demonstration that the new Fiesta has matured into an even more serious player here it was, with two gears left to go.At a stroke the best selling car in the UK for the past eight years has turned from cheeky chappie (but loads of fun) into a car that feels bigger and softer and not quite so keen to have a laugh with you.That...

YOU could make a strong case for suggesting Ford's rivals have enjoyed something of an edge when it comes to full-blown SUVs.The compact Kuga may have been around for the best part of a decade and was joined in early 2014 by the smaller EcoSport, but there was nothing to really take on the big boys.That was until last summer when Ford in the UK got an Edge of its own in the shape of a model with the size, strength and space to go head to head with the heavyweights.To be fair, the Ford...

FOR the past eight years the Ford Fiesta has been the UK's biggest selling car and with the launch of the all-new 2017 model it's set to retain supremacy.It has stiff opposition in the racy small car market, up against the likes of the new SEAT Ibiza and the VW Polo but after an extensive evaluation in Spain I can't see the latest Fiesta being beaten for style, build quality and driving fun.The new Fiesta has many new faces, from the up-market Vignale, the sporty ST-Line, Titanium,...

WHEN a giant moves it may not be often but everyone takes notice.Ford held onto the Vignale coach-building name for 42 years before applying it to a hand-finished Mondeo which appeared in 2016 and now its picking up momentum and will be appearing on more bespoke cars.Ford acquired the Vignale name along with Ghia in the early 1970s and while it quickly introduced the latter, it parked the former until 2015 and it was developed for the latest medium-to-large car range for the following...

BACK in August last year I was able to take the wheel of a true American icon available in the UK for the first time in right-hand drive form.Up until last year Ford's Mustang had to be privately imported to this country and all of them had the steering wheel on the wrong side.Suddenly the car that had been on salefor over 50 years and gained cult status was available here - and at a reasonable price.One of the most recognised cars across the globe, it is available in coupe and...

THE Ford GT will make its first dynamic appearance in the UK later this month on one of Britain's most famous runs.It will be in the safe hands of Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Andy Priaulx and Harry Tincknell, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.Priaulx and Tincknell will be joined on the course by their team mate, Billy Johnson, swapping his usual seat in the Ford GT race car for the fearsome Ford Mustang GT4, a track-ready race car unveiled at last year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas,...

THERE is no denying that the Ford Fiesta ST is a classic hot-hatch.Clever marketing has kept up interest and demand for the most sporting of the three and five-door hatchbacks over five decades and its now the model contesting the World Rally Championship for Ford.The Fiesta ST-3 in three door trim is the most popular and it has strong acceleration and a composed motorway performance while easily returning over 30mpg day after day.The engine is an immediate starter, pulls well from...

SINCE its launch in late 2015 the new Ford Mustang has been snapped up by more than 4,500 fans in the UK and Ford says it is now the most popular sports car in the world.According to Ford analysis the Mustang increased its sales lead in 2016 as the world's best-selling sports car, with more than 150,000 sold.Overall global sales increased six per cent over 2015, fuelled by non-US market growth up 101percent with almost 45,000 Mustangs sold outside its American homeland.In the UK, with...

FORD, traditional masters of Britian's middle-ground and usually the first to pursue an upcoming trend, were a bit slow to capitalise on the SUV scene.Sure, they pitched in with the Kuga almost a decade ago. But more recently the prestige German makes and many of the Japanese manufacturers have had it their own way.Now the American giant - the country that spawned the SUV - has a three-pronged armoury to win back sales - the Fiesta-based Ecosport, the mid-sized Kuga and the elegantly...

THE UK's best selling car - the Ford Fiesta - continues its popularity and with an all-new model arriving in July the man responsible for the exterior styling and overall looks of the new car admits it's been tough to come up with a fresh face.Ivan Telesca, the Fiesta's exterior designer, said that having spent the best part of the past five years on the design of the new car he was sure it would continue to dominated the supermini sector."Compared to when the first Fiesta was...

OTHER people carrier makers took quite a while to catch up with Ford's very good S-MAX.It's no different to most of them to look at but it is very comfortable and also handles like a much smaller car.Most of the others when it came out had good comfort, but they came nowhere close on the handling front where the big seven seat Ford was way out in front.Even now, it is still right at the top of the all round ability list.Buying one secondhand should not be a problem - there are loads...

THERE may still be a few drivers who think the words diesel, automatic and sporty can't live together in the same sentence.Well, they're wrong, and need a drive in the latest Ford Focus to prove it. They'll be glad they did.Ford has made a niche for itself building family cars that combine decent value with driving panache in a package that simply makes you smile when you're in the mood for some fun.But it has always been linked to a combination of peppy petrol engine and a manual...

CELEBRITIES including Rihanna and Cara Delevingne are dyeing their locks grey, #GrannyHair has more than 250,000 posts on Instagram, and 63-year-old grey-haired model Lyn Slater earlier this year followed in the footsteps of Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell to sign with the prestigious Elite model agency.Grey isn't just taking the fashion world by storm; it's also the colour to be seen in when it comes to new cars.Ford has just revealed that grey is the most popular...

THE little things can make all the difference.Step out of a Ford Mustang at night and the car's puddle lights pick out the shape of a wild horse at full gallop.It affords a brief adrenaline hit, as does a glance at the badge mounted on the centre of the Mustang's gaping front grille - and you instinctively know you've been driving a cool set of wheels.The beauty of a Mustang is that it isn't flash like some supercars, but it does have a shedload of street cred.The popular definition...

FORD is celebrating the success of its best seller with the fastest production Fiesta ever.The limited edition Fiesta ST-200 boasts 200bhp - 215bhp on overboost - and rockets from standstill to 62 miles per hour in just 6.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 142 miles per hour.Owners of the standard Fiesta ST with its 182bhp, 0-62mph time of 6.9 seconds and top speed of 136mph can only look on in envy.And in the words of Henry Ford you can have this latest model in any colour as long as...

THERE could be looks and gasps of amazement soon as the Raptor takes to the streets.The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has arrived in the UK, with delivery-mileage examples of the 444bhp ‘super truck' available from Clive Sutton, a London-based supercar and luxury car dealers. The car sourcing specialist has initially acquired five left-hand drive examples of the latest F-150 Raptor, with three already snapped up by long-standing clients. The vehicle can be viewed now by appointment at...

SOME years ago there was a large powerful Ford called the Granada, which was a superb car - especially with its punchy V6 engine option.But when Ford slapped its prestige Italian Ghia designer badge on it, the car became a hot choice among Britain's executives.This Italian touch was a winner, but the tsunami of economy thinking and downsizing swamped the Granada and its successor the Scorpio leaving the world with the impression that the classy, large Ford had gone forever.But strange...

WHISTLING up an instant racetrack to examine every valve and spring of a fire-breathing speedster is a recurring dream.It's probably the subconscious reaction to driving a Ford Focus RS in everyday conditions, a mostly enjoyable but ultimately frustrating experience.That's in itself a reflection of just how good this latest generation of the definitive fast Ford is.In the realm of hot hatches there are now plenty of contenders, but only one - the Honda Civic TYPE-R - is realistically...
