  • Ford’s fiery Fiesta ST with 147kW 3-cylinder engine

    It’s the all-new 2017 Ford Fiesta ST, but it’s missing something very important… The third-generation Fiesta ST manages to pull 147kW from Ford’s all new three-cylinder 1.5-litre Ecoboost engine; a similar output as its four-cylinder predecessor. The turbocharged engine propels the ST from rest to 100km/h in 6.7-seconds thanks...
  • Ford’s 2.2-litre diesel packs punch in new Ranger

    Been known as the best surely comes with a certain level of stress. You’ve raised the bar, and the expectations are high, with competitors no doubt hoping to knock you off your podium. Perhaps this is how Ford feels with their trendy Ranger. The Ford Ranger caused quite a...
  • New Focus RS is our 2016 perfomance car

    I knew after the first few metres of driving new 2016 Focus RS that everything I loved about the Fiesta ST was just magnified in this. A savage beast you’d back in a pub brawl with its notchy six-speed manual gearbox and vociferous 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine. It’s a slightly...
  • Ford’s drift mode in the RS bites back

    Ford’s new drift mode fitted to the Focus RS has provided us with another video to cringe at. During the New York ST Owners Club run, this guy needed to prove to the other club members that their front-wheel drive STs aren’t quite as gnarly as the all-wheel drive system on the RS....
  • Watch active aero at work on new Ford GT

    Active aero. We know it as wings that go from a neutral position to a more vertical degree as speed increases but until now we’ve never seen their effect in a wind tunnel. This latest video shows their downforce-altering impact on the latest Ford GT – the same car that won...
  • Focus RS for everyone; RS500 for the purists

    The meaner Focus RS prototype is back at the Nordschleife flaunting a larger rear wing. Remember the glorious Focus RS500? It was the very best Ford had to offer in terms of performance for the compact hatchback’s second generation and now it seems there’s a new hardcore version in...
  • Can Ford make the Fiesta ST better than before?

    Seen covered in swirly camouflage is Ford’s next-gen Fiesta ST which you can expect to see undisguised in 2017. The new model boasts a more aggressive front fascia, dual exhaust tips and rides on chunkier wheels shod in low-profile tires. Judging by the spy images of the regular 2017 Fiesta,...
  • Drive Review: Ford Mustang EcoBoost Manual

    A Mustang in South Africa can be described as a motoring phenomenon. It will make you famous. Polish the ego. Get you girls or to the front of a queue. Nothing short of a BMW i8 garners this much fanatical rapture and it’s all a bit strange to be...
  • Drive Review: Ford Mustang (2016) 5.0 V8

    The pony arrived on our shores with much fanfare. It seems like South Africans have been yearning for this classic for decades and its finally here. The 2016 Ford Mustang has not disappointed. Parked in the driveway is a black Ford Mustang V8 5-litre. It’s certainly not a small...
