2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 Review

There were a lot of interesting news released from Ford recently which ultimately saw the release of a 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 finally confirmed. Actually this release came at the expense of the Ford Fiesta RS model as it was finally announced that a new model is not going to be built this year. But it gave a lot of room and a lot of time for the ST200 version to prosper and finally get updated. The hot hatch model is a high-performance version of the car and is going to make its debut next year.

The Ford Fiesta ST200 first came on the market in 2013 and had an output of 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which was mainly thanks to a 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. The 2017 version is set to appear in Geneva for the first time for its official showcasing and reports say that it is going to dictate a power higher than the previous one. Actually as reported, it may go up to 10 percent more power and 20 percent more torque. This model is also unique as it brings us a list of features that we would otherwise not get in any other Ford model on the market.

The Chief Executive of Ford has recently stated that all of their new and modern vehicles come with the Ford Performance offering, which has been becoming stronger and stronger in recent years as it developed. The Ford’s EcoBoost engine technology is the one to thank and it will only be getting stronger and better. Until the release date of the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 and its unveiling, we can study the review and discuss about it as well.

2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 Exterior

The exterior of the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 has not suffered many changes compared to the latest model. The vehicles is still very much young and has not been on the market for that long, but they still decide to give it an update. With an already good looking exterior there was not much work that needed to be done. The most noticeable thing is the Storm Grey finish. The model also changes the and adds black color on the front grille, corner vents air dam louvers, mirror arms which are going to combine with the new 17-inch alloy wheels  and helping to comprise the visual package of the car in a great way.

The color was a great choice, which was strange as they had gone with a darker tone instead of a brighter and an eye-catching one. But this new one actually suits the car far better as it also combines with the red brake calipers  that came standard and a brand new ST 200” badge placed on the rear hatch.

The Ford Performance has been upgraded as well with a little bit of fine tuning of the suspension dampers the spring both in the front and rear end of the car. This makes the ride height of the car drop by 15 mm and at the same time lowers the car’s center of gravity.

Interior Changes

There are some great changes made on the interior of the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200. First of all, the Recaro seats from the ST have been transferred here and are this time wrapped in Charcoal colored leather which combines with silver stitching. The seatbelts also have silver detailing and there is some illumination made to car’s scuff plates. An interesting change is that eth Ford Fiesta ST200 2017 is going to have door handles that are going to face towards the front while the mirror and window controls are going to be a bit further down.

The door panels are also completely revamped but the storage pockets are the only part which has been transferred and used from the previous model. This makes the interior much better and much cleaner looking as it does not come with any bulky parts.

Both the steering wheel, the instrument cluster and the dash are coming in unaltered but there are some small changes made in fact. First of all the infotainment control knob is different and there is a ST200 badge placed on the  center console. The changes inside are perhaps few but it really makes a whole lot of difference when we compare it to the regular model.

The model does not change dramatically and essentially looks as it previous incarnation.

The model was first released in 2007, featured for the first time at the New York auto show. The model actually went on sale in 2008 and was a refreshing new design that Ford offered for this segment. The next model cam in 2011 when the car received a larger updated building up on the success it had with the initial model. The 2011 design was showcased at the LA Auto Show and featured a three-bar grille and “FLEX” lettering which were placed instead of the Ford lettering but a more interesting update was the addition of a V-6 engine.

Next came the 2014 model which gave us a facelift to the previous version and is actually the model that the 2017 version copies form and based its design on. This is now an expanded version of that model which does not manage to expand with a whole lot. You can still get the six or seven seat versions and an option of a RWD or an AWD system. The price is pretty much the same but a little bit higher. Check out the updates done as viewed from this review and learn more new information about the release date.

2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 Concept

The 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 version is back. This year we are going to be treated to another model which is going to have more power and bring us a different kind of a setup compared to the base version. This model has been characterized by enabling higher towing capabilities, an expanded payload and more power. With vertical door handles and a rectangular grille we had a model which managed to do one over on the competition and give us an option with a different kind of bodywork and interior presentation.

But the 2017 version is going to change all of that as it brings us a brother cab section while also using different kind of sheetmetal. The shape is different and changes the style a little bit and it also uses some aluminum in order to shape up the things in a better way and cut some weight. This is something that all contemporary Ford cars have been doing in order to reshape their offer.

The all new frame is going to be constructed on a new 95 percent high-strength steel. The backbone is fully boxed and is 24 percent stiffer that the previous Ford King Ranch 250 frame. It is unusual to gloat about a truck like this and how light it is, but  actually the model drops 250 pounds and manages to make the fuel efficiency ratings much better. Keep reading the review so you can find out the newest specs and release date news.

2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 Exterior

The 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 version is going to sport a new kind of an exterior design. It is going to offer us a new type of grille to the front and will distinguish it from the base version. But this is not the only thing that makes a difference here. The model is blush and also has different headlights, but is still manages to keep true to its roots as it transfers a lot of the design characteristics from the old school 1998 version. The grille has a twin-bar and adds vertical side vents which are placed inside the headlights. The front bumper is still available with the closed-loop tow hooks while the windows have the downward slope kept as well.

The cabin is different from before as they have made it to cut the costs and be more functional and production friendly this time. The side vents that have been added to the cabin actually help distinguish between the trims as well and give us the chassis rating as well. The model also gets a completely new lighting package, with Quad-beam LED headlights as class executive ones. There are the LED side spotlights also mounted in the side mirrors as well and the cargo box is also lit up by some LED additions. The rear end of the car has been changed as well and the taillights also have the accent lines seen in the tailgate.

Interior Specs

The interior of the  2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 has a very familiar environment and still manages to keep a great surrounding and give us an entirely satisfying interior. Actually it is more or less the same as the F-150 model, which helps the manufacturers save time and money during development. But this helps the King Ranch 250 model a lot particularly as it has low-sheen and keeps the glare to a minimum.  The positioning of the switches is ergonomic and it has a logical setup to it. This includes the TFT display screens, SYNC technology and all the buttons and knobs of the dash.

But there are also some difference that separate the F-150 and the King Ranch 250’s interior from each other. First of all, there is a second glove box which is finished in an aluminum trim. There are some optional auxiliary switches offered as well but have been relocated to the overhead compartment now. The trailer brake controller is moved a few inches forward as well and this completes the changes made to the interior of the car.

Engine Performance

The powertrain of the 2017 Ford King Ranch F-250 is a familiar choice. The truck is going to continue on using the 6.2-liter gasoline V-8  engine as its base choice and also offer the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 one as well. There is another option of choosing the most powerful engine on display which is the 6.8-liter gasoline V-10 one. All three of the engines can be combined with an automatic transmission. Unfortunately, the horsepower specs have not been disclosed as of yet and there are perhaps going to be some changes there, particularly for the higher. So keep an eye out of some potential updates that might appear soon.

2017 Fiat Toro

Toro – an Italian name meaning “bull”, is the latest model Fiat has been working on and which is expected to come with lots of reasons why buyers should at least wait for it. Despite the Turin-based automaker having a reputation for building for constructing retro-inspired, and often dainty city cars, the new 2017 Fiat Toro which is primarily intended for the Brazilian market is indeed a masterpiece of creativity and innovation. Its release should be expected in January 2017 if at all media reports are anything to go by.

Thanks in part to the slender headlights, styling cues, and hexagonal grille, the new truck now packs more ruggedness than any other vehicle ever built by Fiat. It compares similarly to the FCC4 concept that was presented sometime back in most facet of its construction. Although they differ in terms of designs and mechanical underpinnings.

From the body works that include a sharply lower bumper, alloy wheels, and a roof rack, seen in the pictures circulating in the social media platforms, it is undoubtedly going to be a well-equipped vehicle that might leave its competitors in stitches once available.

In terms of dimensions, the vehicle stretches 193” long which represents about 26” more than the 2017 Jeep Renegade or 19” less than the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. In terms of competition, both the 2017 Ford Ranger and the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado come close. The latter comes with a variety of features and strengths that are either more superior or inferior depending on your priorities, they include a strong set of engines offered with either manual or automatic transmission systems, a variety of body styles and both 2WD and 4WD configurations.

The 2017 Ford Ranger, on the other side, is a very capable truck that offers better utilities and luxurious amenities. Space and high-tech features are the main features that endear many people to it.

Engine Specs – 2017 Ford Toro

At the time of this writing, Fiat hasn’t yet revealed what lies beneath its skin, but reports published by Brazilian media outlets allege the all-new 2017 Fiat Toro will comes with riding on the same platform as the Jeep Renegade. To this end, though, we have reports that allege the new 2017 Toro base model will feature a 1.8L E-Torq four-cylinder engine that can run on either ethanol or gasoline. The former fuel is growing in popularity in Brazil and shouldn’t come as a surprise.

The four-banger according to Fiat, comes mated to a six-cylinder automatic transmission which then forwards the 138-hp produced to the front wheels. Additionally, for those who want a little bit of a power bump, there is the 170-hp producing four-cylinder 2.0L turbodiesel engine to satisfy their insatiable power demands at least to some extent. Also, the six-speed transmission system is standard, as is the front wheel drive. However, for buyers who want to go off the unbeaten path, there is the AWD system available for an extra.

According to Fiat, 2,200 pounds is the maximum towing capacity the new 2017 Fiat Toro will offer regardless of the powertrain offered. Additionally, credible reports place its top speed at 120 mph, and 0-60 mph acceleration at 10.0 seconds.

2017 Ford Super Duty

The bold-looking Blue Oval’s biggest pickup truck was unveiled during the Texas State Fair recently the vehicle comes with significant changes and redesigns that will undoubtedly shape its future segment in the highly contested pickup truck segment. The front fascia now comes with a massive grille, sheet angular metal, and vertical headlights. With each getting a nameplate-specific front fascia, the lineup now includes the F-350, F-250 and the F-450 models. It is expected to be released In February 2017.

Notably, the models come with a significant weight reduction thanks to the extensive use of aluminum alloy of military grade. The switch to aluminum from steel is expected to boost Ford in terms of economies of scale which, according to economics 101, should lower the cost of production and may trickle down to its ultimate production price.

Interior wise, buyers should expect more of a radical design. Much of the design is a carryover from the previous model, however, the new model comes with a new instrument cluster, a four-spoke sleeker looking steering wheel, a redesigned center console, and a generously designed configurable display.

While the vehicle as initially conceived to be a work truck, it has evolved to become tech-focused similar to Ford’s SUVs, crossovers, and passenger cars. Some of the new technologies regardless of the trim level include inflatable seat belts, a lane-departure warning system, an all-surround surround view camera, cruise adaptive control, and front active steering.

To ensure the truck looks as rugged as initially, the automaker installed a stronger suspension and driveline components, and spent countless hours torture-testing it globally. Consequently, the new 2017 Ford Super Duty boasts of a best-in-class fifth-wheel towing, conventional towing, and payload ratings. However, we will have to wait a little longer before Ford gives us the precise figures.

Once available the 2017 Ford Super Duty will have to battle it out with other vehicles in the segment that offer similar technologies and power. Some of them include the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, 2017 GMC Sierra, and the 2017 Ram Heavy Duty. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a high-strength steel frame and aluminum body, tons of safety and electronic systems, power, and high-class interior matching the F-150, the 2017 Ford Super Duty should be your top pick.

Engine Specs – 2017 Ford Super Duty

Unfortunately, the automaker has decided to keep us in the dark as pertains to its technical details. What is known as of this writing though, is the 2017 Ford Super Duty will be offered with gasoline and diesel engine behemoths. Just like before, rumors has it that Ford will offer buyers a choice of either front wheel drive or an all-wheel drive.

Speculation is rife that Ford will offer the new 2017 Ford Super Duty in three engines: a 6.2L V8, a 6.2L gasoline V8, and a 6.8L gasoline V10 engine. We have no choice but to wait for the specs. It is rumored the vehicle will be offered in five configurations and will be more than 24 times stiffer than its immediate predecessor.
The updated safety features include lane-departure warning system, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, brake support, collision warning, and antilock disc brakes.

Exterior Changes & Interior Pictures – 2017 Ford Super Duty

Some of the standard features and technologies available on the F-250, 350, and 450 include a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, a locking tailgate, manual telescopic trailer tow mirrors, 17” steel wheels, cruise control, integrated blind-spot monitoring system, rear privacy glass, padded door armrests, integrated trailer brake controller, lockable storage, keyless entry, heated exterior mirrors, satellite radio, voice commands, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system.

2016 Ford Mustang Convertible

The new 2016 model of the favorable Ford Mustang has finally appeared. Actually it has been less than a year when the sixth-generation Mustang appeared on the market and this is a continuation on that model which provides us with many customizable features. The most important thing is that it is a convertible and that it looks back a bit to the traditional and old school Ford Mustang car that has beer previous produced.

The thing with the previous model was that it was too much criticized for modernizing the car too much. A lot of fans were complaining as they were unable to see the real Mustang car underneath. The lack of some traditional styling cues actually made the sixth-gen model highly unpopular and the brand suffered because of it. With the latest update Ford decided to go back to the roots and bring the fans exactly what they wanted. The new car features a lot of elements from the old design Mustang cars and brings us what we have always wanted from a Ford Mustang. They even add some additional packages which embody the styles of the 1960s models.

The base level trim is going to be quite a looker as there are plenty of styling cues that are going to make the nostalgic fans quite happy. As for some additional and luxurious features, they can only be received in the upgraded packages. So if you want a technological upgrade for your Mustang you will have to opt for the Premium package first and other better upgrades are available in the higher trims as well. This is actually a way for Ford to make the fans interested into buying the higher trims more. But those who do not mind the base version will be happy to know that the price has remained identical to the previous version.

What has changed for the exterior of the 2016 Ford Mustang is that it includes some traditional additions that are trademark to the old Mustang vehicle. But the greatest changes are actually only available for the upgraded packages. The base version has only received the hood vent-integrated turn signals which were a part of the vehicle’s design back for the 1967 model. If you opt of the EcoBoost and GT you will have a car which has the over-the-top racing stripes added which are also seen on the Shelby GT350. You also have the option of using some new colors patters with this addition and have the silver and black ones as the new colors given. But one of the most favorite packages is going to be the Pony Package. It actually comes available for the Mustang EcoBoost Premium trim and adds 19-inch, polished aluminum wheels with a tri-bar pony logo on the front grille and also some side strips with chrome window surrounds.

If you want a stealthier look, than you can opt for the Black Accent Package, which comes available for the GT trims only. This is particularly useful for the convertible models as it enhances the beauty of the car with 19-inch, black-painted alloy wheels, a 5.0 and pony logos in black and a black decklid spoiler with a smoked taillight trim. But there are also the California Special Package and the Performance Package for the GT Convertible. The former one adds 19-inch, ebony-painted, machined aluminum wheels, with smoked taillight accents, a performance front splitter, and a special grille with tri-bar pony logo, while the later one comes with more aggressive front splitter and deletes the rear spoiler.

The inside is mostly unaffected with the update. The greatest change of the 2016 Ford Mustang is the added entertainment system which is seen in the Premium Package. It includes the SYNC 3 which is faster and more intuitive than the former one and makes a lot of difference for the users of this vehicle. You can even update the software via Wi Fi any time you want.

There are some comfort-enhancing features added to the California Special Package that come for the convertible option. You receive the ebony leather and Miko suede seat inserts with red contrast stitching and embossed logos on the inside that way and also special door-panel inserts and premium carpet with red stitching to combine with it. But if you combine the Mustang GT convertible with the Performance Package you then get the aluminum instrument panel with auxiliary gauges.

Engine

The 2016 Ford Mustang continues its story for the next model year using the same engine setups as before.

It provides great acceleration as it enables the car to hit the 60 mph mark in 6 seconds. Next we have the turbocharged, 2.3-liter, four-cylinder EcoBoost which makes 310 horses and 320 pound-feet of torque and can push to 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, with an automatic gearbox, or 5.5 seconds with a manual one.

2016 Ford F-750 Tonka

Big trucks and playtime sort of a go together one with each other. You may not understand it at first but just thing back to your childhood and you will see how it all makes sense. It made sense to one of the most prominent automakers Ford and its collaboration with the toy making company Tonka to produce a combined efforts heavy duty truck which will be released this year. We are calling it the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka truck and it has been showcased for the first time at NTEA Work Truck Show of this year.

Besides the F-750 they are also releasing the F-650 version at the same time as well. The truck really embraces the Tonka heritage and will be a massive working force when it comes to hauling large amounts of materials, dirt or whatever you may get your hands to. The truck is capable of hauling no less than 17,000 pounds of materials and combined with the workable and very reliable dumping hydraulics can make this car a standard addition to any major job that needs completion.

The truck will be first released as a tour vehicle as it will go around many major truck shows, commercial showcasing or vocational trade shows as well where the truck will demonstrate its massive power and potential. It is scheduled to tour the US throughout the 2015 and you can check the listings to find out if it is close to a place near you so you can see this giant in person. If not this review is also a good way to find out much about the truck.

2016 Ford F-750 Tonka exterior

Well we cannot even begin to describe the look of this vehicle without using the words BIG. The design and massive and enormous and the 2016 Ford F-750 is a very imposing dump truck. The frame of the truck holds a huge front bumper and grille with eh equally enormous hood up front and has a single cab which is also used in the Ford Super Duty assembly. You can notice that this is a Ford design just by looking at the grille of the car. The signature blacked out grille with the nostrils on both sides and some lateral slots is something of a trademark features of Ford. The design is actually inspired by the Ford E-Series utility van which also had the same kind of a concept look.

The truck also has an Econoline visual influence to it, particularly based on the headlights design. The bumper is made out of three pieces which actually makes it a lot easier when repairing the damages that might occur as you do not have to substitute the whole thing but only the ones with the damaged section. There are also cut outs for the hook to be placed and some air vents as well to enable the air flow. The 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka wheels that are part of the design have the same yellow design color to match the truck and are wrapped in highway rubber. In the business end of the truck you can find the twin “Built Ford Tough” mud flaps, a swinging tailgate and trailer hitch complete with D-rings and pintle hitch.

Interior

Currently there have not been any photos about the inside issued but we have some information that can be useful for you to know. First of all, the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka truck is a working man’s truck, so you will not find any comfort enhancing additions inside. There are no wood trims nor are there any leather seats inside. Who needs them anyway! This is a manly truck, real man don’t need any of that! You will not find any entertainment features as well as the truck is bare bone and only has what it needs to get the job done and make the function of the vehicle at a required level. It is mostly based on smaller Super Duty series, and based on this you will know that the truck means business.

Engine

There are actually two engine choices that come inside this massive beast. The first one and the base one inside the 2016 Ford F-750 Tonka is the 6.8-liter V-10 engine, but for those who are keep on actually hauling heavier loads a far better option is the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbodiesel choice, yet it does not produce the same amount of power as inside the Super Duty trucks. The standard engine produces 270 horsepower and 675 pound-feet, while the mid outputs is somewhere around 300 horsepower and 700 pound-feet.

But the maximum output is expected at 330 horsepower and 725 pound-feet of torque and it is available for both the F-650 and F-750 version. The second engine choice makes 320 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. and both to the trims will be paired with a  six-speed TorqShift HD transmission.

This of course does not include the upgraded engine options and the aftermarket dump bed. When inkling these additions the price may come up to $85,000 or eve $95,000. The truck is currently on tour so there are any talks about the release date nor if and when it will be available for sale.

With the first ever release of this truck back in 2010, fans have been swooping around this model and are eagerly awaiting every updated that Ford has to offer about their prized vehicle. The 2017 year model brings many innovations that are surely going to dazzle the public.

The Raptor has always been characterized as being a heavyweight bruiser and will retain these characteristics for the upcoming model as well as it is something that makes up the style of the tuck, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. But the newest design will be updated with so much more, the aluminum bodywork and a beefy high-strength steel frame will combine well with an updated interior. Add to that the new Ford’s EcoBoost technology and a new engine option and you get the new 2017 model all wrapped up and ready to go.

Some may say that the Raptor has lost its mojo and that the new version does not incorporate the soul of a 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, but the car needs to go with times and it is a perfect update for a vehicle like this one. As you can see from the pictures the car does not drastically changes from its rugged stance. It has all the makings of a great truck and Ford has done once more a great job in updating it. Read the review to find out about the particular changes and how the car has been updated.

The Raptor takes its exterior design to a new level. The 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model adopts some parts that have been taken from the 2015 F-150 model and has been widen to 6 inches more in order to increase its stability. Both the front and rear bumpers have been raised so the approach and departure angles are different now. There is also a very useful change in the headlights as the halogen ones have been exchanged with the LED ones and it helps in providing more light than before. There is going to be a change in wheel size as well as the car will use the 17-inch ones. It uses BFGoodrich’s latest iteration of its iconic All-Terrain TA tire which is the K02 one.

The off-roading ability of the vehicle is very much enhanced with the newest design. Not only will some standard features help, but something like the new tires will help in providing better stability on different types of roads and also enable the car to make it through some of the toughest terrains there is. The side boards will return this model year as well and the same fenders will also be used this time. At the back it has more similarities with the current F-150 car, but does come with a massive “FORD” block lettering that stretches from side to side. But a great new addition is the dual exhaust system which balances the look a bit and even adds the receiver hitch which comes as a standard form of equipment.

Interior

The addition of a F-150 order form lessens that Raptor interior a bit and combines well for a great look. The 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model comes with a very comfy interior and a suitable upgrade of comfort. The best additions are the unique seats with leather and suede inserts. It also comes with an overhead console with six up-fitter switches and controls for the moonroof. There is a new style of steering wheel made which uses the combination of suede and leather-wrapped steering  that comes with a F1-style paddle shifters. It also includes carbon fiber accents which are added in order to dress up the key areas around the cabin.

In the control cluster you will find the large digital display that is a standard feature in any F-150 car. It is a very useful addition as it shows many information simultaneously and enables the car to be fully focused on the driving. It gives you stats about your off-road info, engine performance and some mechanical stats as well. It was also confirmed that an extended cab and crew cab configurations will be offered for the Raptor.

Engine

As for the engine, there are many updates that come available for the 2017 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor model. The first update comes in the form of a newly updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6.This engine has been cranked and is more powerful than the previous 6.2-liter V-8. It rates at 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque, but the EcoBoost is said to be able to produce more.  The V-8 engine has loads of power but lacks on efficiency, and thus the EcoBoost has been chosen to fix that, thus the power output of the new engine has been set at some 450 hp. The engine will be combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission with F1-style paddle shifters. It does not only enable better fuel economy stats but it also helps with better gearing abilities as well.

Some special type of features are added this time, like the “Torque-On-Demand” which is used to distribute power to both the front and rear axles with the all-wheel-drive-like system along with a mechanical-locking four-wheel-drive system. Also added is the next-generation Terrain Management System that Ford has introduced here. It enables a choice between six modes which depend on the terrain you are driving on. So you can choose between Normal, Street, Weather, Mud and Sand, Rock, and Baja modes.
