Spied: Facelifted Ford Focus Testing In Europe

image-679
The Ford Focus is expected to go under the knife soon for its mid-cycle refresh, and this prototype caught testing in the snow could give us our first look at the updated compact. If not the refreshed model, this mule could be an early version of the upcoming Focus RS, with its ST-like dual central exhaust and large front grille. The headlights appear similar to those of the standard Focus, lacking the in-housing LEDs strips of ...

UPDATED: This Is NOT The 2015 Mazda 3

image-631
Bank of America Merrill Lynch has issued its annual “Car Wars” analysis of the automotive industry, and we’ve found a couple of gems found within the 2014-2017 industry roadmap. Most notable is that ML has included an image of what looks to be the 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback. EDIT: That’s not the case, as the image was apparently lifted from a Carscoop rendering. We’ve already spotted the 2015 Mazda 3 clad in camouflage out testing numerous ...

Feature Flick: 2015 Ford Mustang Prototype Caught On Video

image-574
We’ve seen plenty of photos, but now we have our first look at the 2015 Ford Mustang on video. The pony-car fans at Mustang6G.com spotted a camouflaged Mustang prototype and managed to film it driving. The 2015 Ford Mustang spotted in this video looks almost identical to the one our spy photographers spotted earlier this month. As in our spy shots, this video shows that the 2015 Ford Mustang will have a more steeply sloped windshield, ...

EcoSport Subcompact Crossover Not Coming to U.S.

image-621
While the Ford EcoSport will be available in 62 countries by 2017, the U.S. won’t be one of them. That’s what Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president of global marketing, said earlier this week, The Detroit News reports. Farley added that those plans could change if demand for subcompact crossovers increases in the U.S. Until then, though, the Fiesta-based EcoSport will be sold in developing and growing markets such as India and Brazil. While the EcoSport ...

Spied! Future Ford C-Max Out Testing

image-664
Is Ford already preparing the C-Max for a refresh? A spy photographer recently caught a C-Max test mule hiding an Aston Martin-like nose and testing in the snow of Sweden. From the looks of this early prototype, Ford may only have minor updates in store for the C-Max, which just landed on our shores last year, and has only been on sale in Europe since 2011. Based on this mule, the main change we should expect ...

Spied: 2015 Ford Mustang Prototype

image-613
Our spy photographers caught yet another look at the 2015 Ford Mustang, and even though the prototype car is wearing plenty of camouflage, it gives us several clues about the future of the Mustang. Whereas the cars we saw previously were mules cobbled together on the basis of the current Mustang, this one appears to be a full prototype of the 2015 car. The latest batch of spy photos provide even more evidence the 2015 Ford ...

Rumored: Ford Rep Says There’s Room in U.S. for True, Compact Trucks

image-656
The new Ford Ranger has gone on sale around the world but, of course, it will never arrive in U.S. dealerships. A Ford representative was recently quoted in an Automotive.com interview saying that there is, in fact, room in the U.S. for a true, compact truck segment, even if the overseas Ranger is never imported here. Scott suggested that a successful U.S.-market Ford truck below the market-leading F-150 would have to be truly compact. As for ...

2015 Ford F-150 Spied

image-595
A heavily camouflaged 2015 Ford F-150 prototype has been spied testing in the wet. While few details can be made out through the camo, the  prototype, codenamed “P552,” confirms the automaker is busy with the next generation of its number-one selling model. We speculated earlier this year when we spotted a Ford pickup truck prototype that appeared to have five-lug wheels that the automaker could be preparing a sub-F-150 model called the F-100. These spy shots ...
