ford bronco teased: old name, new ev tech

Ford has given us the first glimpse of the new Ford Bronco… well, sort of, anyway. The hotly-anticipated new truck will see Ford revive one of its most loved nameplates, but so far the automaker has been playing its Bronco cards close to its chest. Now, we have our first look at what we can expect when the new Bronco arrives next year, at least in silhouette. Ford has, annoyingly, draped its new SUV in a mud-spattered tarp, but it’s sufficient to confirm that the original’s squared-off aesthetic has been carried through to this new model. Given the tendency for wind tunnel work and aerodynamic necessity to turn many vehicles into amorphous blobs on wheels, it comes as something of a relief that the new Bronco isn’t going the same way. All the same, Ford isn’t going entirely old-school with

ford's aggressive suv and ev roadmap revealed

Ford may have been faced criticism that it lagged rivals in embracing electrification, but it’s now going all-in on EVs, promising more hybrids and a smaller-than-Bronco SUV with true off-road capabilities. The automaker announced the aggressive roadmap today, as it sets out a stall that’s heavy on the SUVs and crossovers that US drivers continue to be swayed toward. Indeed, according to Jim Farley, president of global markets at Ford, soon trucks and SUVs will comprise a whopping 86-percent of the automaker’s volume. It’ll come with a more rapid update cycle overall, too. Farley says that the average age of each of Ford’s vehicles will be just over three years, as it accelerates development to match the pace of connected technologies and EV advancements. You could argue it’s an unusual di

o.j. simpson’s ford bronco to appear ‘pawn stars'

The infamous white Ford Bronco is making its second TV debut. But this time, it won't be carrying O.J. Simpson on his slow-speed chase down Los Angeles’ 405 freeway.The San Francisco Examinerreports that the car is slated to appear on the History Channel's "Pawn Stars" — a show set at the Las Vegas-based World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. The episode, which is called "If the Pawn Don't Fit," will air on Monday, Aug. 14, at 10 p.m., the Examiner reports.Simpson’s former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, who is also the current owner of the SUV, is working with History to strike the deal."Not many people realize it’s for sale … and I just thought it was a really cool thing to put on the show," Rick Harrison, one of the show's personalities and co-owner of the store, told the Examiner.Twenty-thr

o.j. simpson’s bronco will feature on tonight's pawn stars

Monday's episode of Pawn Stars will feature the white Ford Bronco that carried O.J. Simpson during his infamous 1994 car chase across Los Angeles' freeways.Rick Harrison, pawn-shop owner and the show's star, is expected to assess the vehicle and take it for a drive. Viewers will then discover whether Harrison chooses to buy the car.Harrison told USA Todaythat Mike Gilbert, Simpson's former agent, approached him about the sale. Gibson apparently bought the car from A.C. Cowlings, who drove the car during the slow-moving chase more than 20 years ago.Harrison estimates that the car could go for anywhere between $300,000 to $1 million at auction. "I try and stay away from stuff (connected to) bad people, but it's so iconic," Harrison told USA Today. "The O.J. Bronco is really a bizarre part of

dear ford: when you bring back the ranger, don’t forget this raptor version

Enlarge/ The way the suspension and dampers work on these off-road trucks really is something else. FordShare this storyTrucks have been no more immune than cars when it comes to suffering from automotive bloat. The F-150 of today is a beast of a thing compared to the ones I rode around in at the turn of the century, and that's the smallest truck Ford will sell us here in the US. Life is better for the small truck fan living in Australia. For whatever reason, the small truck never died out in the Antipodes, and Ford's Asia Pacific region will still sell you the Ranger, albeit one that's still bigger than any Ranger we remember.While I'm not the biggest truck afficionado, I bring this up because Ford does in fact plan to bring the Ranger back to these shores (along with cult favorite Bronco

ford realizes it should have an ai and robotics team

It's no secret that Ford has been lagging when it comes to the 'futuristic' tech that its rivals are already on top of. It's still three years away from releasing a long-range electric car (GM already has the Bolt on the market) and only launched its self-driving focused 'mobility' subsidiary little over a year ago.Meanwhile, Volkswagen has recently announced its cars will be 'talking' to each other within as little as two years, while Tesla, a company focused on tech innovation, last year delivered less than 80,000 cars compared to Ford's 6.7 million, and has still managed to overtake Ford in terms of market value.The creation of this new team is unsurprising given the leadership reshuffle seen in May, when self-driving car chief Jim Hackett was brought in to replace CEO Mark Fields. This

all ford vehicles will have built-in 4g lte by 2020

More than that, Ford says it's making a big push into electric vehicles in general, including plug-in hybrids for the forthcoming Bronco, Escape, Explorer, F-150 and the Mustang. For the venerable F-150, the hybrid powertrain will enable more towing power and low-end torque. That'll start in 2020 and within two years of that target, there will be six battery-powered electric vehicles on showrooms.The reason? It'll help insulate customers from rising gas prices, in part, on models where fuel efficiency typically falls short. Which is important -- by 2020 Ford predicts SUV sales will account for 50 percent of global vehicle sales. Speaking of, in two years, the automaker will have eight SUVs for sale total, with five of them being hybrids and one will be full-electric.Ford has an even loftie

Let's run through these features, shall we? The emergency braking system was designed to keep you from hitting a pedestrian or another vehicle because you weren't paying attention to the road, or someone jumped off the sidewalk in front of your bumper. Ford says that before the auto-brake kicks in, an alert will sound in the cabin and there will be warning flashes. If you don't react fast enough, the car will automatically apply the brakes. By 2020, Ford promises 91 percent of its offerings will have this feature.A lane-keeping system will vibrate the steering wheel when your car notices you're riding too close to lane-markers on the road, and applies steering torque to re-center your auto. There's also a more aggressive function that employs a front-facing camera to detect when you're doi

this is the 2019 ford ranger – eyes-on

America loves trucks and it loves trucks with heritage even more, so there’s a lot riding on the 2019 Ford Ranger. Unveiled today at the Detroit Auto Show 2018, it’s a triumphant return to the US market that has been eagerly anticipated since the automaker spilled the beans on its plans twelve months ago. Now, in the metal, we can see the results of this new, midsize truck, and it’s shaping up to be something pretty special. It’s less retro than some thought it might be – Ford is likely to save that design language for the upcoming Bronco, which is expected to share the Ranger’s underpinnings – and more like a slightly shrunken F-150. The designers have dialed the aggression up in places, though, like the steeper rake of the windshield and front grille. The high waistline pinches in the si

ford and lyft team on autonomous cars with the goal of going mainstream

Ford and Lyft have announced that they have teamed up to bring autonomous cars into the mainstream. Ford says that its tie up with Lyft is a significant step in bringing self-driving cars to the masses. The goal of the partnership is to bring affordable, dependable, and accessible transportation to the future.Ford says that eventually a person needing a ride during a period of high-demand will be able to use the Lyft app to have a car dispatched quickly to get the person where they need to go. Ford says that it and Lyft will be working together to answer some big questions that impact the autonomous future. One question is how to connect a partner platform like Lyft to dispatch a self-driving vehicle. Ford and Lyft also want to determine what cities to work with to deliver the autonomous d

ford's seat testing robot butt is called `robutt`

When you think of all the tech that Ford uses to build and test out components that are going into its cars and trucks, you might think of robots. I’d bet you don’t think of robotic butts for testing seats though. The robot is called, naturally enough, Robutt and it is designed to mimic a human sitting in a Ford seat.Robutt was used for testing the new Ford Fiesta in Europe and has sat in different seat designs 25,000 times. That is about ten years worth of sitting according to Ford. The butt robot needed about three weeks to complete all that sitting.The Robutt seen in the image here is a padded design, but there is a metallic robot buttocks that is used to measure seat comfort. That metal butt measures deflection and softness when a person sits. Robots are frequently used in the construc

ford motor co. is reportedly firing ceo mark fields

It's not just the drop in sales, market share, earnings and the stock price (down 40 percent since Fields took the reins) that has Ford investors alarmed. The company is also lagging behind rivals in the pace of tech development areas now considered crucial for automakers.For instance, it's still three years from releasing a long-range electric vehicle, while GM already has one on the market (the Bolt). Ford is also well behind rivals in self-driving car tech, having launched its "mobility" subsidiary just over a year ago.The fact that industry sales are down overall in the US after a two-year winning streak didn't help Fields' case either, the NYT says.

ford mach 1 performance battery-electric car teased for 2020

Ford loves a good tease, and at the Detroit Auto Show 2018 this year that’s all about electrification. The company only has a few tidbits to share in terms of new vehicles, but they’re underscored by a big number with which to help bring them to market. Namely, a pledge that Ford is increasing its investment in electric vehicles to $11bn.Where will that money go? On a variety of different electrification strategies, many of which Ford has already outlined. The company announced twelve months ago, at CES 2017, that it would be bringing out electric versions of numerous mainstream models from its line-up, including an electrified Mustang and an autonomous electric ride-sharing car. Today, it spilled a few more tidbits. The F-150 Hybrid, for example, will be built at Ford‘s Dearborn, Detroit

ford-controlled company acquires laser detection firm

Ford Motor Co.'s autonomous car software and robotics subsidiary has purchased a laser detection company.
The move by Ford-controlled Argo AI is another example of automakers and tech companies assembling pieces to develop self-driving vehicles in-house.Ford announced Friday that Pittsburgh-based Argo had purchased Princeton Lightwave of New Jersey for an undisclosed price. The acquisition gives Argo expertise in laser systems needed to guide cars through challenging conditions such as bad weather.Ford says Princeton was founded in 2000 to develop lasers for the telecommunications industry. In 2003, it began work on detection and imaging.Earlier this month, rival General Motors bought Strobe Inc., of Pasadena, California, to develop the next generation of laser sensors.Ford is testing se

comic con: harrison ford said he will reboot his franchises

When a fan asked Harrison Ford at the Blade Runner 2049 panel on Saturday whether the actor planned to reboot every single franchise that he's ever starred in — including the movies already getting followups, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Blade Runners — Ford had an answer at the ready."You bet your ass," he grunted during the San Diego Comic-Con panel.This came after Ford refused to reveal details about Blade Runner during the panel. Host Chris Hardwick said he could tickle information out of Ford, at which point Ford got up and challenged, "Come and try."Han Solo's still got it.

ford creates 'team edison' to speed up ev development

The team will mainly operate out of Ford's home turf in Detroit, but it'll work with EV teams in China and Europe. It's reporting to Ted Cannis, who's now the global director of Ford's electrification efforts.It's too soon to say whether or not Team Edison will help, but Ford has already been putting its money where its mouth is: it's expanding its EV lineup, and previously earmarked $4.5 billion in related spending over the next 5 years. The big challenge is keeping pace with its rivals. GM, for instance, just announced that it'll have 20 electric car models by 2023. Ford's new group may have to pull out all the stops if it wants to be seen as EV-first.

2019 ford transit connect wagon aims at active baby boomers

Ford has unveiled the 2019 Transit Connect Wagon and it is aiming the vehicle directly at Baby Boomers who need space, versatility, and tech without the big price tag that normally comes with a minivan.

watch ken block go wild with the genius ford focus rs `drift stick`

Ford’s Focus RS got us excited with its Drift Mode, and now Ford Performance is adding a handbrake, though this is no normal lever. The Ford Performance Drift Stick is the first electronic handbrake, designed to work with the Focus RS’ all-wheel-drive and antilock brake system. Apparently it’s so good, notorious hooner Ken Block has given his seal of approval.Old-school handbrake turns and modern car electronics don’t often play particularly nicely. Meanwhile, fitting a hydraulic handbrake would’ve demanded some serious work on the Focus RS in order to make it work. Those changes, Ford points out, wouldn’t be readily reversed either. Instead, Ford Performance went for a more high-tech system. The Drift Stick – internally codenamed Project Wicked Stick – connects to the car’s systems electr
