Ford F-150 might have a Land Rover Turbodiesel V6




This Ford F-150 might be packing a lot of power. According to AutoBlog, "The engine produces a respectable 254 horsepower and a healthy 443 pound-feet of torque". Their spy photographers caught this Ford F-150 driving around Dearborn, wearing camouflage around the bed – not so unusual near Ford's headquarters. "What's interesting with this particular mule is that it might be packing a Jaguar-Land Rover turbodiesel V6".

Ford Creates ebikes


Ford is reaching new levels of innovation by researching alternatives to driving cars, such as bikes, public transportation, and apps. 


"It can make a material difference in people's lives by offering more choices and affordable and accessible mobility even if it is not a car." Developing electric-assist bikes is one way to achieve that. 


"The motorized bikes fold and fit into Ford vehicles. The electric assist ensures you don't get too sweaty on the trip, can handle hills and safety cross busy intersections or roundabouts."
