PRETORIA, South Africa, 12 October, 2015 – The new Ford Ranger is set to establish new benchmarks in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment with an uncompromised blend of robust capability, craftsmanship and advanced technology.

Ford's refreshed Focus kills the competition

Karma’s a bitch. Just ask Ford. You see, way back (OK, 20 years ago) the then head honcho of Ford Southern Africa, Jim Miller, decided to buy some market share.

Take smart technology, mix it with a sophisticated chassis and add one of the best production engines currently available. Wrap it in a sleek body and fuse it all together to create a vehicle good enough to take on the best.

This is what Ford did to create its latest Mondeo, the fourth generation of this mid-sized sedan which was available in South Africa from 1993 for nearly a decade before it was discontinued. Now it’s back, under a new, quite apt name: Fusion.

Ford revealed for the first time the power outputs of the all-new Mustang, that will arrive in South Africa next year (2015)

The all-new Mustang with the new 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine will offer 228kW and 440Nm of torque, while the 5.0-litre V8 engine will generate 320kW and 536Nm of torque.

Both engine options will be made available to customers in South Africa when the all-new Mustang goes on sale late next year. Order books for the new Mustang open in January 2015.
