Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford envisions a future in which autonomous electric vans will work alongside drones to deliver items to people located in urban areas. Calling it the ‘autolivery’ concept, the idea here is that self-driving cars could be used to deliver packages, but it would require a little something extra — something to get the package to where it needs to go, places a van isn’t likely able to access, and without the use of a human.

Ford GT Competition Series puts supercar on a diet

Ford GT Competition Series puts supercar on a diet

Take the super-exclusive Ford GT, trim what little fat you might be able to find, and you end up with this: the Ford GT Competition Series. Few would describe Ford's supercar as anything close to being obese, but the automaker is giving the coupe every edge it can when it comes to track performance. That includes ditching the creature comforts, but it's only the start.

2018 Ford Fiesta ST breaks cover, and we want one

2018 Ford Fiesta ST breaks cover, and we want one

Ford has taken the wraps off its new 2018 Fiesta ST, a punchy little hot-hatch that bucks the trend in terms of engines. Revealed initially in European-market form, the new Fiesta ST eschews the typical four-cylinder engine you'd expect to find under its hood, and instead goes the three-cylinder EcoBoost route. In fact, it's a mere 1.5-liter example, though Ford is still making sizable promises about the car's performance.

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 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. The investment will be doled out over the next five years, the automaker says, as Argo AI cooks up a smart and adaptable computer that can take over driving responsibilities from humans. The hope is that the resulting technology will be in charge of Ford's self-driving vehicle due to hit dealerships in 2021, as well as under the hood of other manufacturers' cars.

2018 Ford Expedition boosts tech and space for 8: First impressions

You'd be forgiven, in today's EV-obsessed climate, for thinking full-sized SUVs are on the way out, but the 2018 Ford Expedition wants to correct you. The new truck, revealed today in Dallas, sits atop Ford's five-strong line up of SUVs, from the smallest EcoSport due to arrive in the US later this year and then up through the Escape, Edge, and Explorer. I stopped by Ford's HQ in Dearborn, MI last week to clamber all over the new Expedition in advance of today's debut.

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. Now, having spent some time up-close with the 2018 Mustang, I'm about ready to change my mind.

Ford SmartLink gives 2010-2016 cars a chance at connectivity

Ford SmartLink gives 2010-2016 cars a chance at connectivity

The thing about smart cars is that either you have them or you don’t. That is, the model you’re going to buy should offer such features built-in or as a custom option. If you have an older model or a model that doesn’t offer connectivity and smart features, you’re mostly out of luck. Well, not if you own a relatively recent Ford or Lincoln car, in which case you can take advantage of Ford’s SmartLink offer to give your well-used but still great car a stab at modern technology.

The 2017 Ford GT is a 216 mph monster: All the stats you need

We knew the all-new 2017 Ford GT would be fast, but now we know exactly how potent the hotly-anticipated supercar will be. Ford has been keeping us in suspense when it comes to exact details ever since the new coupe made its debut at the start of 2015, telling us only to expect a twin-charged 3.5-liter V6 good for more than 600 horsepower. Now, we have a lot more to go on.

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

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.

2018 Ford Mustang puts customization front, center, and inside

The Mustang is one of the most iconic cars in the world and, of course, is Ford's pride and joy. So naturally, when you own one of these prized coupes, you want to really own it and make it yours, leaving your personal mark, so to speak.
