2017 Ford Fusion Sport Review: Blue Oval Q ship cancels mid-size family sedan boredom

2017 Ford Fusion Sport Review: Blue Oval Q ship cancels mid-size family sedan boredom

The Q-ship is a time-honored tradition in the world of family sedans, and the new Ford Fusion Sport is the latest effort from a mainstream automaker to present buyers with an enormous motor stuffed under the hood of an unassuming commuter. Only this being 2017, that motor isn't so much 'big' in size as it is in output, thanks to the Blue Oval's overwhelming desire to turbocharge absolutely every single drivetrain its engineers can get their hands on.

Ford steers $1bn into Argo AI self-driving car brain startup

Ford will pump $1bn into a self-driving car artificial intelligence startup, Argo AI, with former Google and Uber experts at the helm.

2018 Ford Mustang GT: Photos just don’t do it justice

2018 Ford Mustang GT: Photos just don’t do it justice

Opinions were divided when Ford took the wraps off the 2018 Mustang redesign. The biggest refresh to the retro-meets-modern relaunch back in 2015 that the Blue Oval had attempted, the new car proved to be contentious, with not everybody - myself included - convinced by the new front-end particularly.

5 Mid-Size SUVs under $40,000 to watch out for in 2017

Mid-size SUVs are the 'next step' in almost every family's automotive evolution. With enough room to handle a growing brood - especially when trying to fit lanky teenagers in the back seat - along with the kind of cargo space that lets you haul all of your gear at the same time, mid-size sport-utility vehicles are versatile and in many cases surprisingly affordable additions to any driveway.
