SAMSUNG CSCRuling the Road with the Focus ST

It really is the wet dream of any forward-wheel-drive enthusiast. The Ford Focus ST promises launch-grade acceleration and tight grip handling in a hot hatch package.

SAMSUNG CSCThe Mustang GT Unlocks All the Mysteries of Fun

Nothing quite beats that badass feel of being in the driver’s seat of a modern day V8 hot rod. It’s a menacing experience in both looks and feel from its massive chassis, large diameter wheels, and of course, its thick-blooded V8 engine. Even its interior is decked out with rugged dials, flick switches and a deep color scheme to remind you of the power you possess when within.

Small Car with Big Hopes

Small form factor is becoming a mainstream commodity given its road convenience, lighter weight on the scale, and overall, better fuel economy. Speaking fuel economy, Ford went all out on this category by strapping on an engine nearly the size of a lawn mower. And who’s to say small cars have to be left cheap.

A cargo van with a bit of love.

If you’re going to make a cargo van, why not make it drive like a normal car? Any fleet manager with half a sense would ridicule this idea in efforts to save costs.

Ford also offers the Wagon Titanium model with standard options including a heated six-way power adjustable driver seat, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, and dual climate control.
