2017 Ford Explorer Engine Options and Performance Specs

Jurassic Park has been available on Netflix for about a month now, and we finally found the time to sit down and watch it. We are in complete awe that this blockbuster is now 24 years old and how things have changed since the early 90s. We even got a little nostalgic when we saw those first-generation Ford Explorers! The Ford Explorer was one of the first SUVs to hit the market, and it was the perfect choice to use in the film’s park—both as a touring vehicle and as a way to escape from the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex. Watching the film made us start to ask ourselves how well the current edition of the #1 SUV would hold up in Jurassic Park with its current engine and performance specs, and we are excited to share our thoughts!

Ford Pedestrian Detection Technology at Night

We may all be adults, but many of us are still scared of the dark—especially if we have to get behind the wheel. It doesn’t matter if you are driving out on a bare country road or along a dark city street, your paranoia and anxiety go through the roof because you are not sure what to expect. At any moment, a pedestrian, deer, or animal that you only thought existed in cryptozoological folklore might jump out in front of you—and you worry if you will be able to stop in time before hitting it. Luckily, Ford is developing a special technology that will be able to detect pedestrians at night and stop the vehicle at a moment’s notice. Read the rest of this entry »

Outrageous Green Metallic 2018 Ford Focus Electric

A couple of months ago, color authority Pantone announced that its Color of the Year was “Greenery”, and we couldn’t be more excited! We love all things green: apples, kiwi, limes, emerald and peridot gems, grass, plants, Wicked the Musical, money, and cars! Although “Greenery” might be the “it” color for Pantone for one year, we predict that it will stick around for awhile in the design industry because it is such a happy hue. That is why, for 2018, the Ford Focus Electric will be available in an Outrageous Green Metallic color option! Read the rest of this entry »
