Ford Focus-based ute under consideration- report

Ford is reportedly considering a new car-based ute, but instead of a rear-wheel drive platform that underpinned generations of Falcon utilities, this new one will be based on the front-wheel drive Focus. Automobile understands Ford is mulling plans to develop a vehicle to replace the Courier, which was last made in Brazil in 2013, based on the fourth-generation Fiesta.

2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets Raptor power

Ford has revealed the 2019 F-150 Limited for North America, which now comes with the same high-output 3.5-litre 'Ecoboost' twin-turbo V6 as the F-150 Raptor and GT supercar. Developing a meaty 335kW of power and 691Nm of torque, the new F-150 Limited is claimed to be the "most powerful light-duty pickup in America". To distinguish the new Limited from less powerful F-150 models, the flagship pickup sports a dual-exhaust system integrated into the rear bumper.

Lexus LFA: 9 remain in American dealerships

Remember last year, when we covered the 12 unsold Lexus LFAs sitting in American dealerships? It turns out that story, or the overseas digging behind it, didn't cause ultra-wealthy Lexus fans (we know you're hiding somewhere) in North America to stampede their local showroom and lay down a deposit.
