5 Reasons You Should Drive with a Dash Cam

Jun 19, 2017 - 9:43 AM - by AutoGuide.com



From increased safety to capturing beautiful vistas, driving with a dash cam nowadays is a no-brainer.

From Russian meteors to Chinese firework factory explosions, the dash cam has become the darling of viral video entertainment. And is responsible for capturing an unfathomable amount of footage that, collectively, has garnered billions of views on the Internet. Thatís amazing since the point of owning a dash cam is far different. Most people are more interested in the legal and safety benefits of driving with a dash cam than online entertainment royalties.

2018 Ford Focus RS Likely Getting a Huge Price Bump

Jun 13, 2017 - 9:24 AM - by AutoGuide.com
<span lang="EN-US"></span>

<span lang="EN-US">The Ford Focus RS hot hatch will reportedly get a $5,000 price increase for the 2018 model year.

Ford has already announced the 2018 Focus RS will be offered in a limited edition model, but according to CarsDirect, it will start from $41,995 including destination. The substantial increase in its pricing isnít unjustified, however, as the AWD hatch does get plenty of additional standard equipment including a limited-slip differential, the RS2 package, voice-activated navigation, 19-inch wheels, carbon fiber interior trim, and a black roof.</span>

2018 Ford Focus RS Gets Standard Limited-Slip Differential

May 31, 2017 - 8:19 AM - by AutoGuide.com
<span lang="EN-US"></span>


<span lang="EN-US">The current generation Ford Focus RS is about to get a whole lot of extra traction, with the 2018 version set to feature a standard limited-slip differential.

Limited to just 1,500 units in the U.S. and Canada, the entire crop of cars destined for North America will include a factory-fitted mechanical LSD up front to reduce wheel spin and improve cornering performance. Supplied by Quaife, the LSD will complement what is already a stellar drivetrain that includes a performance-tuned all-wheel drive system and active torque vectoring.

The decision to fit the Focus RS with a limited-slip differential comes following feedback online, with the automaker claiming its team scoured owner forums and enthusiast websites before honing in on the in-demand feature.</span>

Once Ford's 1.5-litre Ecoboost has spread through the range, more Ecoboost three-cyclinder engines will be being sold by the brand than any other format


by Steve Cropley, 26 April 2017



Ford will soon be selling more Ecoboost three-cylinder engines in Europe than any other format, once the new 1.5-litre version, launched in 198bhp form on the new Fiesta ST, spreads through its range.


Fordís Europe product development chief, Joe Bakaj, has hinted that the engine will go as far up the range as the Mondeo, for which the existing 1.0-litre engine is already used. Although it has been expanded once already, the Ecoboost triple is unlikely to get any bigger, said Bakaj.


ďA capacity of 500cc per cylinder is about right for thermal efficiency,Ē he said. ďBesides, we donít need cars to get more powerful. We need them to get lighter.Ē


Ford is also about to start selling its new generation of multi-speed automatic transmissions, developed with GM, in Europe. The gearboxes will be used first in the updated Ford Mustang but are coming in the wider range.


The new gearboxes will work especially well in downsized turbocharged engines, Bakaj said. Whereas on step-off a dual-clutch gearbox must depend initially on the nonturbo low-end torque of the engine, the torque converter of the new Ford-GM multispeed gearboxes provides better assistance.

5 Things I Learned Ripping Through the Snow in a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Apr 04, 2017 - 12:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com


I know exactly where the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor was born. I have traversed the exact same course that Fordís development engineers spent countless hours on thrashing the off-road pickup in an effort to fine tune it.

And I can guarantee you, there isnít even a little bit of snow.

The Raptor was born in the desert, with one thing in mind: high-speed off-roading, the kind you see in the Baja 500 or the Dakar Rally.

But this truck is offered for sale all across the United States and Canada, where cold, wintery weather is a sad reality. And why should they have to miss out on the epic fun the Raptor offers just because they live where it snows?
