2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback review: Long-term report two – first impressions

If you're going to get a new Ford Mustang, a V8 manual is the one we'd recommend. Fortunately, that's exactly what we've scored with our new long-term Pony car. Drawing looks practically non-stop since joining the CarAdvice Melbourne team just shy of a month ago, ‘Old Yeller’ – our Triple Yellow 2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback – has been well and truly introduced to all and sundry in and around the office...

2017 Ford Escape Titanium TDCi review

The new Ford Escape gets a new look and a name change. But is the flagship Titanium diesel worth the near $50,000 spend?

2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback review: Long-term report one – introduction

If you're going to get a new Ford Mustang, a V8 manual is the one you'd pick. Fortunately, that's what we've scored as our new long-term test car…...

2017 Ford Escape beach blast

Taking a city-focused SUV for a spin on the sand isn't what most people would do in a new car, but that's exactly where we took the 2017 Ford Escape to test out the autonomous emergency braking, on-demand all-wheel drive system and rear-view camera. We started the day at Sydney's famous Bondi Beach (but not on the sand), then headed to Boat Harbour which is one of the few beaches around Sydney that you actually are allowed to drive on...

2017 Ford Escape beach blast

Read the full article here. New Ford Escape SUV to join Australian showrooms in 2017 with new front-wheel drive Escape Trend, five-star ANCAP safety and SYNC 3 as standard – for a lower starting price.    ...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT vs Volkswagen Amarok V6

Double-cab pickups have been getting ever closer to their SUV stablemates in terms of comfort, safety and technology... but it seems power hasn't been a huge focus. Until now. We put the new Volkswagen Amarok V6 up against the Ford Ranger XLT to see if the new car's added oomph is enough to make it king of the utes.

2017 Ford F-150 Limited review

Make sure you're sitting down when you read this. During a 12-hour daily dealer operating window, Ford sells five F-150 pickup trucks every minute, almost 300 an hour and around 12,000 per day, coming in at almost 800,000 units per year. That's around three quarters of Australia's car industry each year for just one model...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux TRD comparison

This really is the battle of the big guns – the most expensive versions of the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, fighting for the title of the sportiest lifestyle ute. They’re both more popular than any SUV on the market, with buyers choosing these high-riding, five-seat vehicles to get around even if they don’t use the tray for its intended purpose...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Nissan 370Z Coupe comparison

It's a good problem to have. You want to buy a new sports car, but you want more poke than either a Mazda MX-5 or Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 can offer. It can't be front-wheel drive, and your budget rules out more expensive Euros from the likes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

2017 Ford Transits get engine update, and overdue automatic option

Ford Australia is finally rolling out an automatic transmission option on front-wheel drive versions of its Transit and Transit Custom vans, addressing a major impediment to local sales success.

2005 Ford Falcon XR8 Enforcer review

After owning V8-powered Fords in the 1970s and '80s, there was quite a gap that always spoke to me for more of a taste of another Blue Oval muscle car. After looking at many V8 Fords, I came across na Envi Green BA XR8, to which I instantly felt an attraction. As a bonus, it came out of the FPV thoroughbred stable, namely a Russell Ingall Enforcer...

2012 Ford Focus SPORT Review

Originally I was looking for a 4WD SUV, when I spotted a red sport at the Ford dealer I was walking through. The colour definitely caught my eye as did the low interest finance on offer. My trade in offer was higher than expected which sealed the deal for me. I had traded in my VY Commodore which had only done 105,000kms and was in excellent shape...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

The hot hatch market has no shortage of contenders vying for consumers’ hard-earned dollars, but even a decade on, the Ford Focus XR5 Turbo remains a unique offering with a number of welcome quirks...

2008 Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo review

PHWOAR! A term used to express desire, but also a term somehow apt (and not for the same reason) for describing the feeling I get every time I’m behind the wheel of my Aussie-made FG XR6 Turbo sedan. Starting with the exterior, Ford finally got this right with the FG series. There are curves and angles in all the right places that give a properly sporty look without overdoing it...
