Look at that cargo

These particular Mustangs are actually a special advance party that will enable journalists to experience first-hand the iconic car that is going on sale across Europe for the first time in 50 years. More than […]

A question of grip

Think fast. With front wheels on ice and rear wheels on tarmac – where should the power go? If you said the rear wheels, give yourself a tick. But even for those who answered in a flash, it might be a tall order to measure grip 20 times in the time it takes to blink, […]

Win win

Ever thought that in decades to come you might impress grandchildren with tales of parking a car yourself, doing all your own braking, or finding places to eat – armed only with a map? In the last few years we have introduced technologies that could make those activities a thing of the past sooner than […]

Flash Dance

What would happen if you took seven of the biggest names in fashion, film and dance, and brought them together in one of the world’s greatest performing arts theatres?

London crawling

  Can getting to work really be more stressful than actually being at work? For those who travel into London every day, the answer is an emphatic yes. We commissioned a new survey that shows that commuting is also more stressful than dealing with money matters, moving house, and even a trip to the dentist. […]

Accelerated development

We may live in the age of super-fast broadband, instant noodles and speed dating, but it can still come as a surprise how much you can achieve in just 5 seconds. Take our new Ford Mustang with a 5.0-litre V8 engine – which we’ve just announced will get you from 0-62 mph in what might […]

The new model we’ve kept very quiet

Even when you’re not listening to music, noise-cancelling headphones are great for providing a little peace and quiet in noisy environments. Our new Active Noise Cancellation system applies similar technology to reduce the amount of engine noise audible to drivers and passengers. Three microphones in the cabin monitor for engine noise that is then counteracted […]

50-year-old icon is van of the moment

It was in 1965 that the Beatles released Rubber Soul, a state funeral was held for wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill… and the first Ford Transit hit the road. Britain has never looked back, with our commercial vehicle range the best-selling ever since. Now, 50 years on, our extended range of commercial vehicles, which includes […]

Is that a fender?

Our designers have taken inspiration from the Ford GT to go beyond the world of cars – and create a guitar, a boat and a table football game. Applying the same design principles as for the two-seater supercar, the one-off pieces are now on show at the world’s leading furniture design expo, Salone del Mobile, […]

Belt up at the back

Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, and a pop star called Taylor Swift was born – later naming an album after the year of her birth. We’re talking 1989 of course, when it became a legal requirement in the U.K. for children travelling in the rear seats of […]

Manhattan transfer

This week, for the first time, our new Ford Focus RS was revealed in the U.S. – at the New York International Auto Show. It will be the first ever sporty RS car to go on sale across the pond. And, given we had revealed the Focus RS to New York, it seemed only fair […]
