The big Focus appears to be back!
The Ford Mustang is getting a long list of updates for the 2018 model year, including a line-lock function for the EcoBoost-powered model. Autoblog reports the line-lock is compatible with both the six-speed manual and the 10-speed automatic transmissions.
Ford has recalled 400,000 examples of the Transit in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The affected vans are equipped with a driveshaft coupling that can separate from the vehicle, causing a complete loss of power. Ford doesn't have a solution yet; it will replace the coupling every 30,000 miles until a fix is found.
British company BAC will unveil a Mono art car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The single-seater gets a black paint job with blue, green, red, and yellow stripes that reflect how air flows over the body. The livery was drawn with a software named Autodesk.
American startup Godsil has finally introduced the Manhattan -- and not the kind made with whiskey. It's a large, luxurious coupe with suicide doors and V16 engine that runs on CNG. There's no word on when the coupe billed as the "halo car for America" will arrive on our roads.
Even with billions of dollars of investment capital coming in, Chinese tech giant LeEco is still cash-strapped, TechCrunch reports. LeEco backed out of an EV development project with Aston Martin this week, forcing the British automaker to pivot to a far more exclusive scope in executing its electrification strategy. http://tcrn.ch/2tpZUbZ
The nearly 38-million drivers taking to America's highways this coming weekend have at least one thing to feel good about: low gas prices. According to AAA's gas price tracker, customers in at least 60 percent of the country can find regular unleaded for just $2.24 (or less) per gallon. This is the lowest the national average has dipped since February. http://bit.ly/2tY8w6H
If it feels like Lamborghini has debuted its Centenario a number of times, well, that's because it has. Lamborghini is calling this the Centenario's "dynamic" debut, which basically means this is the first time they've shown one moving any appreciable distance under its own power. The Centenario coupe will do 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph. We doubt it will achieve the latter going "up the hill" at the famous UK festival.
