    Escape V6 4WD Manual Transmission

    Anything is possible if you have enough money, but since the 3.0L Duratec was never available from Ford with a manual transmission in a transverse application, it would probably more trouble than it's worth. You could get an Escape with the 2.3L I-4 and manual transmission and add a turbo for much less than what it would cost to add a manual transmission to your V6 Escape.

    A new Thunderbird - "For All the Right Reasons"!

    A shortened 2 seat Mustang with a 500HP 3.5EB, seven or eight speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and retractable hardtop would make a pretty sweet Thunderbird.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Will it be available for sale in August 2019?
  4. When I rented a Lime e-scooter in Atlanta last week, the app had to scan my license before it would unlock it.
  5. Lincoln will still offer a sedan or two, right?

    Joined the Fusion family

    Congrats! I have a Fusion Sport as well, I love it!
  7. I'd rather see the GT500's supercharged 5.2L V8 in an Explorer RS. An Escape RS would be great and pretty easy to do too. I'd rather have that than an Edge ST to replace my Fusion Sport.

    Ranger power and tow ratings finally released

    On average, you're probably spending a $1, maybe more, on DEF every time you fill your tank with diesel. Outrageous!

    Ranger power and tow ratings finally released

    The new Ranger has more horsepower, nearly as much torque and can tow almost as much as my old 2001 F150 SuperCrew. That's impressive.
  10. I don't have any real world experience with the 3.7L V6, but before we purchased our Explorer, we test drove the 3.5L V6 and 2.3EB back to back, and the 2.3EB just drove better. Around town, with a lot of idling waiting for kids to get out of school, my wife averages around 16 mpg, but she's a bit of a lead foot. Out on the freeway, I don't have any trouble getting 22 to 25 mpg depending on speed & headwind.

    Should I order the HD trailer-towing package?

    I always get the heaviest duty trailer tow package available on any vehicle I buy even if I don't need it. It's always a great value for what you get and it helps when you sell it later. I don't really see any downside.

    2022 Courier/Ranchero for NA

    That's the Fiat Toro with a Focus grill photoshopped on it.
  13. I'm glad I'm skipping the fair this year...

    New light & medium duty news

    Have we seen any 2020 Super Duty chassis cabs being tested?

    2020MY Production Schedule

    That's what I was kind of thinking. Maybe they'll scale the F450 & F550 chassis cabs up a bit and the F650 & F750 down a bit like Chevy's new Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD & 6500HD.
