Ford Edge ST takes on Focus, Fiesta - video

Ford Performance is making a big deal of the Edge ST in the USA, pitting it head-to-head with two of its other ST models to prove the high-riding family hauler is properly quick. With 264kW and 515Nm on tap from its 2.7-litre twin-turbo EcoBoost petrol engine, the Edge ST will likely hit 100km/h in around 6.0 seconds. On the outside, it gets a unique bodykit, 21-inch wheels and a slew of ST badges. The car also gets a stiffer suspension than standard.

Chief engineer: Ranger Raptor four-cylinder is the right choice

Ford has finally taken the wraps off its latest halo model, the first Ranger Raptor, at a packed-out event in Bangkok. The US-based automotive giant is billing the Raptor as an off-road performance pick-up, with a beefed-up chassis and 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel mated to an all-new 10-speed auto transmission.

Ken Block's Ford Fiesta gets a little dusty in new video

Ken Block is back! In his tenth Gymkhana instalment titled 'Terrakhana - The Ultimate Playground', he teams up with Pennzoil to go off-road at Swing Arm City, Utah. Seated in his Ford Fiesta RX43 rally car, Block puts the foot to the floor, resulting in massive dirt rooster tails. With some clever slow-motion photography, the five-minute video shows Block having a ball going flat-out across the sandy plains.

Ford EcoBlue turbo-diesel engines revealed

Ford has revealed its next generation of turbo-diesel engines, branded EcoBlue. The car maker says that the success of its EcoBoost petrol range has driven a number of innovations in the development of its new turbo-diesel design. Leading the new range will be a 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel that Ford says is cleaner, 10 to 15kg lighter and up to 13 per cent more efficient than the 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi it replaces.

Ford 1.0-litre EcoBoost wins Engine of the Year award for the third year running

Ford's tiny 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine has won the International Engine of the Year award for the third consecutive year. In Australia the diminutive 1.0-litre engine (it's actually 999cc if you want to be pedantic about it) is currently employed in the Fiesta and EcoSport. It will also be fitted, at least in overseas models, to the facelifted Focus range, as well as the next-generation Mondeo.
