2019 Ford F-150 Raptor review

What's big, beastly and anti small car? The Ford F-150 Raptor, of course. It's the big cousin of the Australian-engineered Ranger Raptor, but how much does it draw from this big truck? Paul Maric finds out.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt review

Ford has nailed it with this third-only version of the Mustang Bullitt for so many reasons – styling, noise, handling/ride, tech and comfort. It's pretty much all accounted for, and it's a hoot to drive.

Summer road-tripping in the Ford Everest Trend

When Santa obliged an eight-year old’s request for a 26-inch mountain bike for Christmas, I knew the Ford Everest would fit my holiday vehicle needs nigh on perfectly. Why? Firstly, I’d need inherent cruising comfort, decent diesel economy and huge cargo space because dad and son are separated by a 800-odd-kay slog between Sydney and Bendigo and buggered if I’m going to keep pulling the front wheel off junior’s pride and joy once I (eventually) get to regional Victoria...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Sam Purcell: Ford Ranger Raptor

I consider myself in a very lucky position to be jumping into a fair number of vehicles every week working at CarAdvice. You soon learn that first impressions are pretty important, and the relationship you have with a car can take a few different twists and turns during the experience. Some cars can be naturally exciting and engaging, while others feel more pedestrian...

2019 Ford Focus ST-Line wagon review

The new, fourth-generation Ford Focus brings a first for the nameplate in Australia: a wagon. And it deserves to be more than just the niche seller in the small-car range.

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Andrew Beecher: Ford Mustang GT

Paul’s Audi R8, Curt’s AMG G63, Mandy’s Porsche 911 GT3…I knew many of the team would succumb to temptation of machinery worth north of $250K. Given that I didn’t want to leave Mike or James, with their Santa Fe and Corolla, to represent the men of the people alone, I opted for the 2018 Ford Mustang GT – in my preferred automatic form – to help keep the modest end of the field honest...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018

Welcome to the inaugural CarAdvice Winners Circle, our debut annual award program showcasing our editorial team’s motoring highlight releases of the year. After some long and hard consideration of the pros and cons of more traditional award formats, it was ultimately reader and car industry feedback – through surveys, garage day chats and even a focus group – that moulded exactly the form Winners Circle would take...

2019 Ford Endura review

Many Australians sorely miss the locally built Ford Territory. We’ve had our first local drive of the imported Endura to discover whether that large-SUV product gap has been adequately filled…...

Past Blast: Ford Mustang, old and new

Classic. Ageless. Iconic. Legend. All words thrown about these days when referring to everything from the latest iPad to overpriced celebrity inspired sneakers. But in the automotive world, certain models of car are truly worthy of such illustrious titles. The Porsche 911, the Toyota LandCruiser, Volkswagen Beetle and of course, the Ford Mustang...

2019 Ford Focus hatch review

The old Ford Focus was under-appreciated, but the new Mk4 model tested here is better again. It's at the pointy end of the class in the areas of driving dynamics, space, infotainment and active safety. Shortlist it.

2018 Ford Escape ST-Line long-term review: Introduction

Meet the latest addition to our fleet of long-term testers, the 2018 Ford Escape ST-Line. It'll be with us for the next few months, strutting its stuff as the sportiest member of the oft-overlooked Escape line-up. We'll delve into life with the car over the next few instalments, but here are some of the basics. This isn't the first time I've had a Ford Escape in my life...
