2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets revised styling similar to Chevy and Ram

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 21:30

Filed under: ,,,

It seems there's always room at the top. Each year, automakers add more and more luxurious trims for their trucks. That's how we get near-luxury vehicles like the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited and 2019 Chevy Silverado High Country. In order to separate higher trims from lower brethren, most get a few unique styling touches and a whole sea of chrome. Just look at these photos of the slightly updated 2019 Ford F-150 Limited.

Ford Mustang hybrid coming in 2020 [UPDATE]

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 20:15

Filed under: ,,,,,,

We love driving the Ford Mustang. We've got one — a GT — in the Autoblog stable at the moment, and the keys to that V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive beast are highly coveted in the office. Some of us (well, maybe just this particular author) feel a tinge of guilt, though, when we fire it up and lustfully rev the engine.

Ford Focus ST to come with a 275-hp 1.5-liter three-cylinder?

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 13:25

Filed under: ,,,,

AutoGuide reports that the coming Ford Focus ST will run with a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine producing 275 horsepower. This is a novel assertion for several reasons, the first being that it mimics a similarly unsourced rumor from one year ago in Autocar, down to the cylinder count and horsepower. Auto Guide leaves out the particulars about how Ford would coax more than 180 hp-per-liter from the L Dragon engine; Autocar's 2017 article said the Blue Oval would rely on twin-scroll t
