How Ford Won the Middle Class, and why Volkswagen Didn’t

Ford

In 1908, if the automobile were a citizen it would have been old enough to vote, but almost no workingman in America or anywhere in the world owned such a contraption. Trolley cars and buggies carried most people to the more well-paying jobs in the cities, while people in places like Chicago’s Packingtown or Pittsburgh’s Homestead led short, brutish lives struggling against the elements on foot. If you were a typical workingman, you made approximately 400 dollars a year, which is only $8,000-$10,000 in today’s dollars, a condition of extreme poverty. Read more

Search For Used & Salvage Ford Taurus From Online Auto Auctions

Ford Taurus is a highly successful sedan, first introduced by Ford in 1985. The Taurus is a very important vehicle for the entire American automotive industry as it brought numerous innovations and new features in its class. Even though it had the unusual front-wheel drive layout and a very aerodynamic design, it saved Ford from bankruptcy. It won Motor Trends’s Car of the Year award and it was also on the Car and Driver’s Ten Best list. The first four generations of Taurus featured a sedan and a station wagon option, but the latter was dropped in the latest generation. Read more

Search For Used & Salvage Ford Focus From Online Auto Auctions

Ford Focus is a compact car introduced in 1999 as a very strong and innovative rival to the class-topping Volkswagen Golf. It is noted for its new and radical design as a part of the Ford’s New Edge styling principles.

It was the first car in its class to feature the multi-link rear suspension, so the new trend was soon followed by its main competitors, including Mazda 3, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Nissan Versa.

 

 
The first generation of Focus included the hatchback, the sedan and the station wagon, while the second generation saw the introduction of a coupe version.

Focus has won numerous Car of the Year awards all around the world and it has been included on Car and Driver’s Top Ten List for five consecutive years. Ford Focus is considered to be the best handling car in its class, providing a delicate balance of passenger comfort and driving pleasure. It has the biggest interior in class, is an excellent value for money and is exceptionally fuel efficient in most trim levels.

The first generation of Focus included four different trim levels along with the sporty SVT line. The most popular trim level is SE. A vast array of different engines and transmissions was initially available, although the second generation saw the narrowing down of engine choices to just one 2.0 straight-four. The FCV is a hydrogen powered version and it is essentially a zero emissions vehicle.

The owners of the first generation Focus equipped with a 2.0L SPI engine commonly complained about a dropped valve seat. The interior quality on early models is often listed as an issue as well. Focus received an overall “good” rating in the frontal offset crash tests and an overall “acceptable” rating in the side impact tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It can be purchased for $2,000-$8,000 from online auto auctions and it will usually be sold much faster if it came in silver, red or black.
