Ford Performance confirms power upgrades for the Ford Focus RS



Are you unhappy with the current performance of the Ford Focus RS, but don’t want to risk voiding the warranty with a tune from someplace like Hennessey Performance? Good news: The wonderful people at Ford Performance have confirmed they’re working on a new calibration for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that should add some factory-certified oomph to the hot hatch. 
The new Ford Focus RS is no slouch. The current car’s 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder sends out 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. Ford claims a 0-60 mph time of fewer than five seconds. While these are already impressive numbers for a vehicle of the Focus RS’s size and class, there are always those wanting a little more. 
While Ford won’t reveal any details on the new calibration, such as power, price, or availability, but we can look to the recently revealed upgrade to the Ford Mustang EcoBoost for reference. There, $699 nets you a 50-state legal 25 hp and 70 lb-ft of torque, all backed by a Ford warranty. It’s hard to say if the gains in the Focus RS will be as impressive, since the 2.3 EcoBoost already makes more power and torque in the Focus than the Mustang. 
This tune could be a version of the warranty-backed Mountune kit that’s currently available in the UK. It’s confirmed for the US, but there has been a bit of a delay while they work out the tune for Americans. In the UK, a Mountune upgrade adds 25 peak horsepower and about 30 lb-ft of peak torque. Expect to hear more details from Ford Performance in the coming months. 

 

 

 

The top selling pickup truck gets a bump…


Ford’s top-selling pickup truck is getting a bump in gas mileage.

The Ford F-150 will get slighty better gas mileage for 2017! 

Ford said Wednesday the fuel economy for its 2017 F-150 pickup will rise one mile per gallon compared to the outgoing 2016 model due to a revamped version of the automaker’s 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine and the first application of its 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ford said Wednesday the fuel economy for its 2017 F-150 pickup will rise one mile per gallon compared to the outgoing 2016 model due to a revamped version of the automaker’s 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine and the first application of its 10-speed automatic transmission.
But the question remains whether the gains will be enough to give Ford a marketing edge over its competitors. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Ram 1500, when equipped a 3-liter diesel engine, gets 20 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg combined.

The fuel economy of the F-150 is important because it is not only the nation’s most popular car or truck, but also because Ford’s F-Series pickups have been the top-selling car or truck in the U.S. for 39 years in a row. Any increase or improvement in fuel economy on the truck is likely to be viewed as a edge in the fiercely competitive pickup truck segment.

Ford gained ground on fuel economy when it introduced the 2015 F-150 pickup after redesigning it with an aluminum body that cut up to 700 pounds of weight compared to the version it replaced.

Ford’s EcoBoost engine, first introduced on the F-150 in 2011, has become a popular engine option for Ford. EcoBoost engines account for 60% of Ford’s overall F-150 sales while Ford’s 5.0-liter V8 engine and a non-turbocharged V-6 engine account for the remainder of the sales.

970 new Chicago Police officers will need 600 new squad cars



Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to borrow $25 million to pay for new squad cars for the 970 new officers he plans to hire in the next two years, but how he will pay for the additional cops remains under wraps.  On Thursday, Emanuel’s office will seek approval from the City Council Finance Committee to tack the vehicle-related borrowing onto an existing series of general obligation bonds, Budget Office spokeswoman Molly Poppe said. 
As for the estimated $134 million it will cost to put nearly 1,000 new cops on the CPD payroll, Poppe said Emanuel will spell out the funding sources when he introduces his 2017 budget proposal next month.
The $25 million price tag will cover more than 600 vehicles, to be purchased over two years, Poppe said. The all-wheel drive Interceptor SUV will be built at Chicago’s Ford Assembly Plant on South Torrence Avenue. The CPD fleet is mostly comprised of Ford sedans and SUVs, but department officials have not yet determined the mix of models needed, Poppe said.
Last week, Emanuel announced the police hiring surge as a key component of his strategy to reduce crime and calm tensions between the CPD and citizens, but he did not say where the cash-strapped city would find the money for the officers.
Emanuel’s plan also called for spending $36 million on mentoring programs intended to steer middle- and high school-age children away from gangs, listing the city and several corporate sponsors as funding sources.
This year Emanuel has pushed through tax increases totaling $838 million for police, fire and teacher pensions, in addition to a new fee for trash collection and a 29.5 percent bump to water and sewer bills. However, the new police hires could eventually allow the department to reduce the $116 million spent on police overtime in 2015.

NEW 2016 F-650 AND F-750 TRUCKS HAVE BEST YEAR-TO-DATE SINCE 1997


Ford, the only full-line automaker offering vehicles in Classes 1-7, sold more F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks in the first eight months of 2016 than all year in 2015

Year-to-date sales of F-650 and F-750 trucks are up 59 percent versus 2015 and at the highest level since 1997

All-new F-650 and F-750 trucks are available with the buyer’s choice of Ford-built segment-exclusive gasoline engine or diesel engine

Ford, America’s truck leader, has outfitted hard-working fleets with more F-650 and F-750 trucks in the first eight months of 2016 than all year in 2015.
Sales of the all-new medium-duty Ford trucks are up 59 percent year-over-year through August, with 10,160 sold. That’s the best year-to-date sales total for Ford’s largest trucks since August 1997.
The sales growth has come quickly: The redesigned F-650 and F-750 trucks rolled off the line at Ford’s Ohio Assembly Plant near Cleveland for the first time in August 2015. Ford shifted production to Ohio from Mexico in 2015 and invested $168 million in the Ohio plant.
The F-650 and F-750 line-up includes Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab body styles, as well as straight-frame, kick-up frame Pro Loader and a new dedicated tractor model for heavy towing applications.
“We’re seeing growing interest in the new tractor from beverage and hauling fleets,” says Kevin Koester, Ford medium-duty truck and Super Duty fleet marketing manager. “Giving our customers the choice of two exclusive powertrains, available across all body styles and designed specifically for the unique needs of the vocational truck market, has really helped drive sales of our new trucks.”


Ford remains the only automaker to offer a gasoline-powered engine in the medium-duty truck segment. The 6.8-liter V10 with 320 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque is available for both F-650 and F-750 models with the heavy-duty, Ford-built TorqShift HD six-speed automatic transmission. The 6.8-liter engine can be factory-prepped for converting to compressed natural gas or liquid propane gas as cost-effective alternatives to gasoline.
Ford is the only medium-duty truck manufacturer that designs and builds its own diesel engine and transmission combination – ensuring the powertrain will work seamlessly with all chassis components and vehicle calibrations, and providing customers with streamlined service. The Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel engine delivers best-in-class standard 270 horsepower and 675 lb.-ft. of torque, plus available engine outputs of 300 horsepower with 700 lb.-ft. of torque and 330 horsepower with 725 lb.-ft. of torque. It is backed by an unsurpassed five-year/250,000-mile warranty.
“Towing and rental customers have embraced the gas engine, and others are looking at this powertrain for more severe service applications,” Koester says. “Our diesel customers are praising the quietness of the 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel engine. Not only is it up to 45 percent quieter in the cabin at idle than the outgoing model, it’s so quiet that customers have told us that there have been times when they’ve approached the truck in front of the grille and didn’t even realize it was running.”
Another feature resonating with customers, Koester says, is the TorqShift HD’s available Live-Drive Power Takeoff Provision. The diesel engine can crank out 300 lb.-ft. of stationary torque and 200 lb.-ft. in mobile mode, giving customers the power they need to operate a wide range of equipment on the job site. Diesel models can accommodate split-shaft PTO applications, as well. New for 2017 is the addition of mobile mode on the 6.8-liter V10 engine.
Toughest, great value and work-ready Ford medium-duty trucks ever

Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks provide the ideal combination of value, capability and upfit readiness in the medium-duty truck segment.
These attributes underscore F-650 and F-750’s position as the future of medium-duty trucks:
Toughest: Fully designed and developed by Ford truck engineers in Dearborn, Michigan; robot-tested on taxing durability courses too demanding for human drivers; 500,000-plus miles of harsh dynamometer engine testing at extreme power levels and temperatures

Work-ready: New upfit-friendly chassis developed in cooperation with leading industry body makers; clean chassis capable of accommodating vocational bodies with little to no modification saves time and expense

Great value: Choice of segment-exclusive 6.8-liter V10 gas engine or 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel – both backed by Ford’s heavy-duty TorqShift HD six-speed automatic transmission enhanced for medium-duty use with great power, performance and efficiency; supported by a national network of Ford service centers to minimize downtime
