Ford Kuga PHEV Stop-Sale Could Spark Worry in Ford Mach-E Customers

Ford Kuga PHEV Stop-Sale Could Spark Worry in Ford Mach-E Customers

Does the Ford Kuga PHEV’s Battery Fire Problems Signal Problems for the Mach-E?

Ford launched the Kuga PHEV in the U.K. earlier this year, and so far, it’s been performing quite well, planting itself as the 10th best-selling car there in July of 2020. However, there’s a big problem brewing, with Ford being forced to recall and temporarily suspend global sales of the Juga PHEV because at least four have caught on fire. This problem seems limited to the Kuga PHEV, and Ford is only recalling models produced prior to June 26th, but does this spell trouble for other battery-electric models like, say, the Ford Mach-E?

Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?

Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?

Ford knows people will buy the F-150 no matter how high it’s priced

Kim Kardashian went about ‘breaking the internet’ a couple of years ago and her husband could do the same if he becomes the President of the U.S. In between these things came the Ford Bronco, which has been the talk of the town ever since it was unveiled and is a worthy candidate for the same award. Such is the off-roader’s hype that many have forgotten the fourteenth-gen 2021 Ford F-150 was also unveiled just a couple of weeks before it.

If it was any other time, America’s best-selling vehicle would’ve garnered all the attention; but not this time. However, there is some news on that front as well. According to a report from CarsDirect, the 2021 F-150 could go north of $80,000. How about that!

This Leaked Video Suggests That A Bronco Hybrid Is On The Way!

This Leaked Video Suggests That A Bronco Hybrid Is On The Way!

It shows an "EV Coaching" mode on the Bronco’s instrument cluster

Yes, there’s more news on the Bronco front. In all honesty, I think this past week should be called the “Bronco Week”. This time, the news is regarding a Bronco Hybrid. A video uploaded by “Input” on their YouTube channel shows the instrument cluster and the SYNC system. In one of the frames, you can see an “EV Coaching” dial. This can only mean that a Bronco hybrid is in the making.

The 2022 Ford Ranger Could Be Offered With An Efficient Hybrid Powertrain

It will be different from the ones used in the Escape and Explorer

Ford may have pulled the plug (pun intended) on a plug-in hybrid F-150, but it does have plans to introduce it on the 2022 Ranger. The Ranger is sold in many countries across the globe and is one of the most important products for the company.

The truck’s next generation is slated to be released next year, and it could see some massive changes under the hood. According to CarExpert, the Ranger will be offered with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that hasn’t been used in any other product yet.

The 2021 Ford F-150 Will Feature the Explorer's Hybrid System

The 2021 Ford F-150 Will Feature the Explorer’s Hybrid System

Not with the same engine, but there will be a 90-percent part-sharing between the two systems

Our hopes of a strong hybridized F-150 were dampened a few days back when we got to know that the truck will deliver just 10 miles of range while running in pure electric mode.

Now, TFLTruck reports that the 2021 F-150 will be largely similar to the Ford Explorer Hybrid. The information comes to light through a tweet by Ford’s communications manager, Mike Levine. He said that there will a 90-percent part-sharing between both the hybrid systems. Does that mean there will be an increase in the electric mode range? Nope, not really.

The Ford F-150 PHEV Will Have Enough Electric Range to Get You Down the Driveway

The Ford F-150 PHEV Will Have Enough Electric Range to Get You Down the Driveway

Plug it in for 10 miles of range? This is the truck equivalent of an iPhone 6!

Since the electric F-150 is still some time away, the focus has been on the plug-in hybrid version of the truck lately. What made this news even interesting was that the hybrid version would be based on the 3.5-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine. Basically, a lot of hopes were pinned on this hybrid mill considering it would serve as a bridge between the internal combustion engine range to a pure electric truck and would give us an idea of what to expect.

Well, as it turns out, Ford just pulled one over on us. According to Car And Driver, the PHEV F-150 will run only 10 miles on electric electric before switching back to gas. So much for all the buzz surrounding the mill.

Are Hybrid NASCAR Cars Heresy or Just Natural Evolution?

Are Hybrid NASCAR Cars Heresy or Just Natural Evolution?

Ford Performance Boss Mark Rushbrook talks NASCAR hibridization as we await to see the Mustang debut at the Daytona 500

The idea that NASCAR will one day turn to hybridization isn’t new, but this switch might happen sooner rather than later if the words of Ford Performance Global Director Mark Rushbrook are to be believed. It’s not earlier than this summer that Brad Keselowski, the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, was playing the advocate’s role for "F1-like" hybrid technology by using a KERS system to harvest energy as well as electric motors to back the gas-powered V8s. Many fans might be against electricity finding its way even in NASCAR, but there are reasons to look forward to such a change, no matter how radical it sounds.

The 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid Features a Weird Drivetrain Layout

Where’s the 3.0-liter EcoBoost from the Aviator?

Ford made somewhat of a surprise move at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show and introduced a couple more versions of the brand-new Explorer. Unveiled just last week, the Explorer came to Detroit in new ST and Hybrid trims. The latter features a rather weird drivetrain layout, especially given what FoMoCo offers in other hybrids.

2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid promises 500 miles range

Thanks to the clever battery placement, the interior and the cargo space is uncompromised

The Explorer line up now feels complete with the debut of the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid. It feels like the Blue Oval is a little late to the Hybrid-SUV party, but the company has made sure to capitalise on all the hype the Explorer has created over the years and has launched the Explorer SUV in the Hybrid from with an acclaimed range of 500 miles!

Now That Ford Knows Better Than to Name an SUV "Mach 1" Will the Name End up on a Hybrid Mustang Instead?

Now That Ford Knows Better Than to Name an SUV "Mach 1" Will the Name End up on a Hybrid Mustang Instead?

It’s not certain yet, but Ford wouldn’t leave this clues if they don’t mean anything

Ford’s plan for the “Mach 1” name is still shrouded in questions, but a new teaser from Ford seems to have left bread crumbs on what the automaker intends to do with the resurrected nomenclature. Without directly identifying it, the teaser included a shot of the original Ford Mustang Mach 1, followed by a shot of the current Mustang, an illuminated version of the Mustang’s V-8 engine, and a lit version of the muscle car’s iconic badge. Without explicitly saying anything, Ford may have hinted its plans to use the “Mach 1” name on a future hybrid Mustang.

2019 Ford Territory

2019 Ford Territory

It’s A New SUV, But Only For China

Although it will never come to the U.S. in this guise (or any other I am afraid), I feel that we should know all there is to know about the new Ford Territory. This very car may showcase the future of Ford crossovers. Revealed for the Chinese market only, the Ford Territory is actually a reimagination of the famous Territory sold in Australia. However, unlike the Australian car which was a full-fledged Ford product, the newest Ford Territory is actually a rebadged JMC Yusheng S330. Ford developed it with Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) to give Chinese customers another option in the sea of similar compact SUVs available there.

Ford Launches The First Ever Pursuit-Rated Hybrid SUV

It’s the “quiet” before the storm

We all have drooled over Lamborghinis, Bugattis, and other exotic cars in uniform. The loud grunts from powerful combustion engines when throttled, and the silencers roaring their lungs out in a high-speed drama; but have you thought of a Hybrid police car doing those extreme pursuits? Well, Ford recently revealed the all-new Police Interceptor Utility, which is the first pursuit-rated Hybrid SUV ever. It aims to offer improved performance and lower fuel costs thanks to its hybrid setup.
