    Ford vs Ferrari trailer

    I hope Ford can win this years Le man. Then this movie would be funner.
  3. 2018 Ford F150 Pickup 2WD 6 cyl, 3.5 L, Automatic (S10) City MPG 18, Highway MPG:25 I assume Ranger is much lighter than F-150.
  4. I hope the Engine for the Titanium Edge ca be better than 2.0 Liter EcoBoost. Is this engine the same as 2.0 Liter Ecoboot engine for current Escape? What is the weight difference between Escape and Edge. I am afraid that the 2.0 Ecoboost can be sluggish for Edge.
  5. US is the largest oil producer in the world now. Chinese Economy is slowing down. Russia and Saudi don't want to loss their market share in oil market. Supply of oil is surpass the demanding now. This situation will last for a while. We are energy independent now.
  6. My 2017 Escape was manufactured in September 2016. In this Winter, when I turned on the heated seats, the reversing camera didn't work. The screen show warning "the camera is unavailable". Does anyone else has similar issue? I went to Ford Dealer, my service representative said that there are a national reversing camera issue including 17 Escape. But there is not solution right now.

    '17 Titanium - First 100 miles.....

    Borg, thank you for helping me understand the issue. I have another question. My 2017 Escape is equipped with Forward Collision warning and brake support. Is this function same as Automatic Emergency braking?

    '17 Titanium - First 100 miles.....

    I just bought a 17 Escape titanium. It come with ACC, LKA/KDW, BLIS, Enhanced park assist. It is a great car. We love it. But we could not find the climate apps in the SYNC3. Is it normal or did I missed something?

    24 Hours of Lemans

    My understanding is that Porshe and Toyota were competing in the Le Mans prototype class; Ford and Ferrari were competing in the production class. The vehicles are different and not comparable. We don't expect a 600 horsepower GT to compete with 900 horsepower Porshe Le Mans Prototype class LMP1.

    24 Hours of Lemans

    It was great race for Ford. I watched most of them during the line waiting for the roller coasts in Cedar Point.

    America's New Best Selling Van- Transit

    Just came back from Disney theme park in Florida. Transit is everywhere in the parking lot (not the employee parking lot). I saw much more Transit in Southern states than in Michigan area excluding Ford testing units.
  12. I have a 2007 fusion and I live in Michigan. I pay $1200 half year for my car insurance. Michigan is no-fault state, which means my insurance company has to pay the damages regardless which part did wrong on accident. Thanks God, my fusion hasn't made me to make any big repair. So far, I only spend routine cost for the change of fluids and one oxygen sensor. It has had more than 130000 miles on it. Except the insurance, I haven't spent too much money on the car.
  13. 10% premium increases will cost me $20 more every month. But the lighter weight and new engine will save me at least $75 on gas per month given that I drive 2130 miles for work in highway every month. I assume the gas mileage will be 30mpg on highway for the new truck. The current F-150 has 23 mpg on high way. My calculation was based on $3.50 for a gallon of gas.
  14. Given the truth that all three Japanese car makers also got double digit growth in Chinese market, I don't think such anti-Japanese sentiments really contributed too much to Ford growth in China. Considering US and Japan are allies and US supports Japanese in the dispute of those islands. Anti-Japanese sentiments actually hurt US businesses in China. I believe it is the great products of Ford that causes the strong growth of Ford in China.
  15. 9 Ford vehicles in 87 years. Each Ford vehicle lasted average 8 years. That is a indication of good quality.
