Ford Kuga recall still not confirmed, despite numerous reports of engine fires

Ford Australia has still not committed to recalling Kuga 1.6 models — unlike in South Africa, where it has done so — despite several engine fires being reported locally.

2018 Ford Focus exterior and interior spied

The fourth-generation Ford Focus has been spied for the first time with production panels. Not only that, but the spy photographers also managed to take a shot of the new car's interior. Beyond the hatch's overall shape, the pronounced shoulder line, and the Hofmeister-style kink to the rear door line, it's hard to make out too many of the car's other details, as there plastic disguise panels attached to the doors, tailgate, and bumpers...

2017 BMW M140i v Ford Focus RS comparison

We’ll admit a comparison test between the BMW M140i and Ford Focus RS doesn’t seem particularly logical on the surface, but there’s a method to the madness.

Observed by website Carscoops, two images of the new Mustang's driver display could potentially tease the facelifted model's power outputs - 455 and 755 - along with numerous Easter eggs paying tribute to the pony car's heritage...

I'll never drive a Ford Mustang again

You can imagine how chuffed I was, painting a set of 11s on the tarmac during my first drive of a manual Ford Mustang GT with its hearty naturally aspirated V8 engine. In fact, it was around this time last year that I was singing its praises on social media. It all culminated at the end of last year when we ran our performance car test at Motorworld...
