Welcome back to our Throwback series! Today’s Throwback: The Ford Country Squire. Ford had been making station wagons under the Country Squire nameplate since 1950, usually as a top of the line trim to its full size car. The 1979-1991 models are unique; they are the last of the “boats” to set sail from the port known as Ford’s station wagon market. Or, in less of an analogy, the last full size station wagons made by Ford. Read More

Despite the Ford Focus being the top selling vehicle in the world, Ford has decided to redesign the 2015 Ford Focus compact car to be bolder, smarter, and even more fuel efficient. Taking design queues from the Fiesta and Fusion, the front fascia and front hood have all been redesigned, including the headlamps and fog lamps. The liftgate and taillamps have also been redesigned for the hatchback, as well as the trunklid on the sedan. Every model except the S will see available redesigned wheels ranging from 15″ – 18″.
If you’re still questioning whether or not the new 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon Long Wheelbase has a good balance of family amenities and cargo space, take a minute and watch this how to video. The luxury of having a fold flat second and third row allows for up to 104.2 cu. ft. of cargo space: 85.8″ length at floor and 42.2″ cargo height. All the latches and combinations may seem a little confusing at first, but once you take the time to learn how these seats fold, you’ll be switching back and forth between family van to cargo hauler in minutes. This truck will make any Decepticon jealous while you roll around and feel like the James Bond of family transportation with the amount of features and functionality available.
Ford is gearing up to make 2014 the biggest year in its century-long history. With 5 redesigned products either on the horizon or already on the ground, this is shaping up to be a year of big changes for the company. From the aluminum-bodied F-150 to the controversial styling of the Mustang, no expense was spared in planning Ford’s new direction. The Transit Connect also saw big changes for this year and now offers two wheelbases, new trim levels and a Wagon with its crosshairs pointed directly at the family market. Ford is looking to grow from the biggest North American manufacturer to the biggest manufacturer in the world, and it has armed itself with five new models loaded with cutting edge equipment and state-of-the-art technology to accomplish its goal. Here are quick summaries of the announced models.
