Ford Releases Fuel Economy Numbers on 2015 F-150

Nov 22 2014 10:35 AM | Ford News
Ford has finally spilled the beans on fuel economy for the 2015 F-150 engine lineup for two-wheel and four-wheel drive variations. The fuel-economy numbers do put Ford in a good place for most half-ton gasoline competitors. But the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel still rules the roost in overall fuel economy with 20 City/28 Highway/23 Combined. Still Ford has an argument that the F-150 is the better value.

"Equipped with 2.7-liter EcoBoost, the all-new F-150 is a better value than even diesel-powered pickups. For instance, the $495 option on the Ford is significantly less than the $4,470 3.0-liter Ram EcoDiesel option.

LA Auto Show: Lexus LF-C2 Concept

Nov 20 2014 09:35 AM | Los Angeles Auto Show
California, a place known for its abundance of sunshine was the place that Lexus showed off a drop-top concept. The LF-C2 serves as a preview for design cues to come on future Lexus products. But it also likely gives us a sneak peek into a possible RC convertible.

The convertible's exterior is all crisp creases and sharp angles. The front features the largest version of Lexus' spindle grille yet and triangle headlights. A bright golden yellow paint job and a set of five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels give the vehicle a bit of distinction. If you're wondering where the convertible top is, don't try and look. The LF-C2 is strictly an open top affair.

The LF-C2's interior is a futuristic take on the current interior found...
