  • Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2007) review

    Price:  £18,345

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    A facelifted Ford Focus diesel? Is it still fun? In a word, yes. Britain’s bestseller has been under Martin Smith’s scalpel to bring it in line with his ‘kinetic design’. Gone is the slightly mundane...

  • Ford Mustang Bullitt (2007) review

    Price:  £31,075

    12 November 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Mr Bullitt, we’ve been expecting you It was inevitable. You can’t build a retro version of America’s favourite sporty car and then ignore the fortieth anniversary of its starring appearance in...

  • Ford Verve concept (2007) review

    15 October 2007 by James Foxall

    Ford Verve? Isn’t that the Fiesta replacement? It certainly is, although by the time it goes on sale in November 2008 it’ll probably be called Fiesta again. Whatever the name, the new car will have a...

  • Ford Transit SportVan 2.2 TDCi (2007) review

    Price:  £19,526

    01 October 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Er, it’s CAR magazine, not What Van? magazine… We know, but allow us this indulgence. Well not indulgence, but vans are always great fun, and no van is more fun than this, the SportVan. Ignore the...

  • Ford C-Max H2 ICE (2007) review

    03 August 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Another hydrogen-powered Focus – what’s the difference between this and the FCV? The H2 ICE stands for hydrogen internal combustion engine. It has the kind of engine you’d recognize - Ford’s global...

  • Ford Focus FFV (2007) review

    Price:  £14,795

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Aren’t alternative fuel vehicles meant to look like escapees from Buck Rogers? They used to, but Ford has the right idea. The only difference between this and a conventional Focus is a tiny ‘FFV’...

  • Ford Interceptor concept (2007) review

    23 July 2007 by James Foxall

    This Interceptor looks the business, can I buy one? It’s Ford’s take on a super-saloon rival to the Chrysler 300C SRT-8 and BMW M5 and is called the Interceptor after one of the Blue Oval’s US police...

  • Ford Airstream concept car (2007) review

    17 July 2007 by James Foxall

    MPV Airstream. Isn’t that an American caravan? Indeed it is. The sort that even people who hate caravans have to admit looks quite cool. Ford decided they represented the ultimate American journey so...

  • Ford Focus FCV (2007) review

    25 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Why am I supposed to get excited about a last-generation Focus saloon? Partly because it has a spec-sheet that reads like a Porsche 911 GT3 RS – ultra-thin lightweight glass, bespoke parts in...

  • Ford GT Roush 600RE (2007) review

    Price:  £145,300

    21 May 2007 by James Foxall

    Isn’t the Ford GT pretty tasty already? Yes it is, but this model is even more special. Ford has actually stopped producing the GT so it decided to do something exceptional with the last handful of...

  • Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,595

    24 April 2007 by Tim Pollard

    A new Mondeo... isn't that supposed to be a snore-worthy non-event? Definitely not. The very mention of Mondeo might not raise the heartbeat, but this is an important car for Ford. Not only does it...

  • Ford Focus Coupe-Cabriolet TDCi CC-2 (2006) review

    Price:  £17,795

    20 September 2006 by Peter Burgess

    Yawn! Another coupe-cabrio! We've had hundreds of them in 2006... Ford might be talking about the way forward, but it's pretty backward when it comes to spotting emerging market segments. It was late...

  • Ford Shelby GT500 (2006) review

    15 September 2006 by Jason Barlow

    Over-sexed, over-hyped and now over here. Why should I care about a hot Mustang? Care? You should get down on your knees and give thanks to the Lord! OK, so we habitually write off American cars as a...

  • Ford Galaxy 2.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £19,495

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    A new Galaxy. Where does it fit into Ford's burgeoning array of MPVs? It's quite simple really. The Galaxy is Ford's top-end people carrier, a genuine seven seater with a tall roof, heaps of cabin...

    Price:  £20,995

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Good grief, another MPV! Why should I care? I'll set the scene. We're just north of Seville on some of the best, most challenging and downright scary roads Europe can offer. The latest Porsche 911 was...
