According to the recent reports, the China-spec Ford Territory SUV is all set to be launched in the LATAM (LATin AMerica) markets in 2020. Initially unveiled at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, the SUV has managed to grab the attention of major buyers thus, the brand plans to expand its reach to more customers across the globe. The reports also suggest that the SUV has been added to the Ford’s Brazil portfolio.

The SUV has been designed by the brand’s Chinese arm in association with Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC). The brand christened it as the Yusheng S330 initially though the authentic Ford styling with a larger front grille as well as Ford badging made the brand to refer it as Ford Territory. Based on the underpinnings of LandWind X7, the SUV measures 4,580mm in length, 1,936mm in width and 1,674mm in height.

Powering the Ford Territory (Yusheng S300) in China is a 1.5 litre EcoBoost 145 petrol engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 142 HP and a peak torque of 225 Nm. The engine is mated to a CVT gearbox. The brand also offers the SUV with a hybrid powertrain as well as an EV variant. There has been no confirmation if the same engine specs will be used for the Ford Territory expected to launch in Brazil and Argentina.

Some of the premium bits offered to the SUV includes a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system in addition to wireless charging port as well as a 360-degree parking camera. In addition to this, the brand has equipped the Ford Territory with FordPass Connect embedded modem and premium safety plus comfort features.

Next in line after Brazil and Argentina are the South American markets to get the Ford Territory SUV. The reports suggest that the brand will unveil it at the ‘Rock In Rio’ festival in September before launching it in South America. If the brand decides to bring the same in the Indian market, the SUV will compete with the likes of MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500, Kia Seltos, and Hyundai Creta.

A recent rumour doing the rounds on the internet hints that Mahindra and Ford are jointly developing 9 SUVs for the Indian as well as nearby international markets. The Mahindra team will let Ford keep 3 exclusive SUVs while remaining six will be badge-engineered versions of each other.

This brings the total count down to six as development cost will be seen on these only. However, like Maruti Baleno and Toyota Glanza, the three cars will only see changes in the monikers. The development will include both compact and full-size SUVs, with total investment counting $600 million in a phased manner.

The investment period is not mentioned anywhere by both the brands while they have confirmed that the amount can change (increase actually) with the need of the time. The powerful partnership will bring all these cars in the next 6-8 year period, clearing that they are in no mood of flooding the market with SUVs suddenly.

However, the long period and upcoming norms may mean that electric SUVs are also under consideration by the Mahindra-Ford JV. The new SUVs that are to be built from 2020 will see Ford’s own facility as the home, with Mahindra managing all the operations for better efficiency.

Ford has always complained regarding the efficiency problem at their manufacturing plant as the production was always under the benchmark that could have been achieved from that unit. Ford is likely to pump $200 million out of this number and the rest of the amount will arrive from Mahindra.

It seems like the production and development will be done by keeping in mind the number of units sold on average by both the brands. The joint venture will first focus on compact and midsize products as both of these are the highest selling and highly profitable options in the Indian market.

Ford Puma, the much-awaited crossover from the American manufacturer has been officially unveiled before the global showcase planned for the Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV-like character and premium hatchback feel of the car makes it a great option for those buyers who are looking for a city-specific car with a pinch of added excitement to itself. The 1.0L EcoBoost engine of the car is expected to arrive with 155 HP of maximum power, all thanks to the 48-volt hybrid support. The car comes with hands-free tailgate function and adaptive cruise control to keep the driver relaxed at all times.

Ford brings impressive features like speed sign recognition, lane alert and massage function to the car. The product is focused on the European market and Ford seems to keep up with the pace of impressive cars through the mild hybrid crossovers. The Indian market launch plans are not on the cards as the brand is planning to keep up with the Mahindra partnership and bring localized products to the country. Ford Puma is here with a smart boot section, helping owners keep the space practical for everyday use and extend the same whenever required through a movable panel.

The car comes with 18-inch standard wheels and can also be had with optional 19-inch wheels after the official launch event. Even before the launch, most of the details have been made available by the brand. New Ford Puma will available in Blazer Blue, Race Red, Frozen White, Solar Silver, Lucid Red, Agate Black, Desert Island Blue, Metropolis White, Magnetic, and Grey Matter shade options. The 456-litre boot space, seven-speed DSG, 12 sensors and impressive 8-inch console display makes Ford Puma a very desirable option. The Bang & Olufsen sound system with 10 speakers and subwoofer further improves the driving and ownership experience for the car.

Ford India is working with Mahindra for a new compact SUV that will replace the ageing EcoSport in 2020. The current-gen EcoSport recently saw a drop in pricing and revision of variants, which further clears that this can be their last bet for the compact segment against Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza. Ford EcoSport and Freestyle offer 6-airbags in the top-spec variant, making them two of the safest options when getting a city-specific product with limited interior space. On the other side, EcoSport offers a much higher seating and bigger alloy wheels inspired from typical SUVs.

Ford India has launched EcoSport Thunder, an all-new variant for their equally cherished SUV lineup. In addition to this, the brand has also slashed the prices of other variants of EcoSport. The popular compact SUV will now be available at a starting price tag of INR 7.69 lakh while the price goes all the way up to INR 11.33 lakh for the top-spec variant. The all-new Thunder variant of the Ford EcoSport has been priced at INR 10.18 lakh for the petrol variant and INR 10.68 lakh for the diesel variant. This variant has been specifically launched for replacing the Signature trim of the SUV.

The brand justifies the decrease in prices of the SUV as an outcome of the increased level of localization. Certain reports also suggest that the brand has dropped the prices of the EcoSport for competing in the market with the likes of the newly launched Hyundai Venue. Though the initiative might help increase the sale, the long term effects are still unknown. The all-new EcoSport Thunder SUV can be availed with 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 123HP and 100HP respectively.

In addition to these, the fog lamp bezels, the front grill, and the wing mirrors have also been given a blacked-out look. The compact SUV features a dual tone cabin with sport brown accents on the seats and the instrument console.

Ford EcoSport Thunder features a 9.0-inch infotainment system as standard with GPS navigation, voice connectivity with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Ford EcoSport Thunder Edition Photos Leaked: The ever-increasing competition in the sub-four-meter SUV segment has resulted in the car makers to work on new and more feature-loaded variants every now and then. Ford launched the Ecosport facelift in November 2017 and last year the brand also launched its Signature edition.

Well, the images of the Ford Ecosport Thunder edition have leaked online, and it seems like the brand is all set to launch a new mid-range variant to take on its rivals. The leaked set of images fully reveal the exterior and interior of the Ecosport Thunder edition.

Talking about the exterior, the compact SUV features a black anti-glare hood decal with similarly designed graphics on the sides and on the tailgate. The car features a Thunder badge at the back just below where EcoSport is written. The car has also got faux air inlets, black front bumper applique, a new and unique set of 17-inch black alloy wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Ecopia tyres with a black spare wheel cover.

The car’s headlamp bezels, radiator grille border, fog lamp housing, ORVMs, roof rails, and the roof also comes in black in symmetry with the dual-tone exterior theme. The interior of the EcoSport Thunder edition also carries a dual-tone theme. It will come in two different options: Black with Beige, and Black with Orange. The interior images of the car suggest that its equipment list will most likely come with passive keyless entry, 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery, and automatic climate control.

Mechanically, no confirmed information is available about its engine. Though, the regular EcoSport model is available with three different engines: 1.5L TDCi diesel, 1.5L Ti-VCT petrol, and a 1.0L EcoBoost petrol. Its 1.5L petrol engine (123 PS/150 Nm) comes mated to a 5-speed MT or a 6-speed AT gearbox.

The 1.5L TDCi diesel variant (100 PS / 205 Nm) is available with only a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.0L EcoBoost petrol comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The upcoming EcoSport Thunder edition is expected to get a lower price tag than the EcoSport S variant, which is available with a starting price tag of INR 11,38,400 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the petrol variant.

The entire story starts from this special car as Wick saying ‘not for sale’ to the Russian guy who pushed him out of retirement. The love for his car is even clear when after owning a modern house, he keeps one space in his garage for the Mustang. However, the way he breaks his own car during a hard beat-the-bad-guys session in the second part, true enthusiasts may even see tears rolling down their cheeks.

Those thinking what’s so special in this car, the generation of cars falling in the 1960s had a different charm in terms of design and raw power output. The bonnets are longer than usual, having huge engines under the hood that produce a tire-burning effect as soon as the driver presses the pedal hard. The lack of modern traction control and safety systems further means that you need to be extra-attentive all the time. Those who are already guessing the engine size, John Wick’s 1969 Ford Mustang is using a 7.0L, V8 Cobra Jet engine with the iconic roar at the exhaust.

Many theories confirm that the car was made to look like the Boss 429 and actually, it was a Mustang Mach 1 with certain additions. Still, if the character himself says the Boss 429 name at the gas station, it’s hard to argue with the film maker’s intention. However, the trailer of the third instalment shows no car and instead, John Wick is seen riding a Yamaha MT-09 and performing sword stunts while riding. Those who are familiar with the series also know that Keanu Reeves’s love for retro muscle cars stays intact through the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS offered by his friend who owns a garage.
