Mustang maniacs mark your calendars: The next-generation 2015 Ford Mustang will make its public debut on Dec. 5, 2013, with a globe-spanning reveal program that features events in the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The international focus makes perfect sense, too, since it harkens back to the introduction of the original Mustang, some 50 years ago, and also honors the worldwide following of Ford’s famous muscle car

A 2014 Ford F-150 recently helped set a major milestone for its maker, as Ford has now delivered more than 400,000 full-size pickups with its fuel-saving EcoBoost powertrain technology. Even more impressive: Ford hit that mark in February of 2011, less than three years after first offering an EcoBoost engine in its top-selling truck.. The decision to start using EcoBoost engines in its highest-volume vehicle has paid off in other ways, too
The first modern-day subcompact to reach 45 mpg without the benefit of hybrid help is the 2014 Ford Fiesta. When configured with its new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine and a five-speed manual transmission, in both hatchback and sedan body styles, the Fiesta has been certified to reach 32 mpg city/45 mpg highway/27 mpg combined. But the real benefit to the Blue Oval’s new three-cylinder engine goes beyond its green performance to also include a notably aggressive approach to green lights.
With U.S. sales expected to pass the 200,000-unit mark this month, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the top-selling cars in the country. But this isn’t just a case of home-field advantage: The Focus also happens to be the best-selling nameplate in the world through the first six months of the year, continuing a run of international success that also brought it the global sales title in 2012
After recently celebrating a major manufacturing milestone by building the 500,000 th 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel engine, Ford wasted no time in improving that powerplant for the 2015 Ford F-series Super Duty lineup. Blue Oval engineers have yet to release new specs for the uptuned engine, but the company is promising “more power beyond today’s 400 horsepower and 800 lb.-ft
With 90 percent of Ford Escape buyers in North America choosing an EcoBoost engine for their hot-selling compact crossover, it is fitting that a 2014 Escape also helped set a new production record recently by receiving the 2 millionth EcoBoost powerplant. This time, it was the 2.0-liter engine, which provides the Escape with 240 horsepower, 270 lb.-ft. of torque, and EPA grades of 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway/25 mpg combined
August marked the Blue Oval’s best month yet for electrified-vehicle sales, as the company’s hybrids, plug-in hybrids and full-on EVs combined for 8,292 deliveries last month. Not that that should be much of a surprise: Ford’s greenest entries have now set sales records in 11 months in a row, capped off in August when the Ford C-Max Energi and Ford Fusion Energi each had their highest monthly sales totals since they first hit the market earlier this year
Backed by a $555 million investment and 1,400 new employees, the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan recently became the U.S. headquarters for production of the 2014 Ford Fusion. The Flat Rock expansion increases the overall production capacity for the car to 350,000 units annually, and comes at an ideal time.
Talk about going out with a bang: The very last 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible was up for grabs at the very first Barrett-Jackson Hot August Nights Auction in Reno, Nevada, and the bidding didn’t stop until Don Damon had purchased the car for a cool $500,000. Of course, as happy as Damon was, the folks at the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) were even happier
There’s going to be a new rookie powerplant on the Ford force this year, but the company is confident it will be up to the challenge in the Ford Police Interceptor Utility. That’s because it’s the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that’s already enjoying success in the civilian community in vehicles like the Ford F-150.
