2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty
The toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty ever features a military-grade aluminum-alloy body on a high-strength steel frame, making it up to 350 pounds lighter than the outgoing model. Sixteen segment-first features – including in-cab tire pressure monitoring, adaptive cruise control and up to seven cameras with 360-degree views – ensure the Super Duty works as hard as its customers. Release, stills and video can be found here.
2017 Ford Escape
Revealed just last month, the 2017 Escape is Ford’s bestselling vehicle next to the F-Series, and demand for the compact SUV continues to grow. New for 2017 is the world’s first-ever SYNC Connect system – which allows customers to start, lock and even locate their vehicles through a smartphone app – and standard Auto Start-Stop Technology that turns off the engine at routine stops to improve fuel economy up to six percent. Also available are innovative driver assist technologies such as Enhanced Active Park Assist, Lane-keeping system and the popular hands-free foot-activated liftgate. Release, stills and video can be found here.
2016 Ford Focus RS
Ford’s third-generation high-performance hatch – the first-ever RS available in North America –– delivers innovation, unmatched driving dynamics and more than 315 horsepower from a powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost Engine. Operators can select one of four drive modes – including drift mode, which helps drivers achieve controlled oversteer drifts – to get optimum performance out of their drive experience, whether on the track or on the highway.
Release, stills and video can be found here.
2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang
Since debuting in 1965, the Shelby GT350 has become one of the most iconic performance Mustang nameplates of all time. Now it’s back, and it features the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever – a 5.2-liter V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft – a configuration typically found only in European sports cars. All design considerations were functional-driven with the goal of improving performance, making the Shelby GT350 the ultimate track car on weekends – and completely street legal Monday to Friday.

See the 2015 Subaru Legacy Concept Car at the Indy Auto Show

Subaru-Legacy-Concept-LA-Auto-Show-2013-000Subaru of America, Inc. will highlight the Subaru LEGACY CONCEPT at the 2014 Indy Auto Show. The new LEGACY CONCEPT celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Subaru Legacy and provides a look at the styling cues for future Legacy models. Adorned with a custom Ocean Silver Metallic paint scheme, the LEGACY CONCEPT features a more coupe-like silhouette. The LEGACY CONCEPT is a modern interpretation of the Legacy and features a more distinguished front design with a new hexagonal grille and a sharper hawk-eye headlamp design. Flared wheel arches cover 21-inch wheels and hint at the standard Subaru Symmetricalall-wheel drive drivetrain. A pronounced character line flows into the short rear deck and ends in the rear tail lamps. The tail lamps echo the hawk-eye headlamp design and enhance the solidity of the overall design.
