The CEO who killed the Ford Focus, Fiesta and Mondeo is stepping down, replaced by ex-Toyota man

Jim Hackett announced today that he is stepping down as CEO of Ford Motor Company, barely three years on the job.Formerly a CEO at office furniture manufacturer Steelcase, he succeeded ex-Mazda man Mark Fields at Ford. Hackett’s tenure at Ford was rocky. He had no experience with the automotive business but Executive Chairman Bill Ford was eager to have someone outside the company to transform the highly-traditional Ford.The results weren’t good, which probably explains his earlier-t

This Ford Ranger makes 405 PS and has gull-wing doors

When Ford Performance unleashed the Ford Ranger Raptor, many were disappointed that the pick-up truck came with a 2.0-litre twin turbo diesel engine and lacks the bite of the F-150 Raptor’s V6. One company recently decided to do just that by fitting the epic 3.5-litre V6 engine into the Ranger Raptor.To recap, the Ford Ranger Raptor is the smaller and tamer version of the Ford F-150 Raptor. Thanks to its 20-foot-long body and 3.5-litre twin-turbo Ecoboost V6 engine that dispenses 456 PS an

Tiny turbo engines: good or bad?

Engines are getting smaller and smaller by the day thanks to the help of an invention that dates all the way back to 1905 – the turbocharger. First used in aeroplanes with radial engines, the turbocharger was then used in big multi-cylinder diesel engines and finally found its way into production cars in the 1960s.If our tax structure was different, we might see more LS swaps.

Semakin lama, enjin menjadi semakin kecil disebabkan oleh satu ciptaan yang dibina sejak tahun 1905 lagi – iaitu pengecas turbo. Pada mulanya digunakan dalam kapal terbang dengan enjin radial, pengecas turbo ini kemudiannya digunakan di dalam enjin diesel berbilang silinder yang besar, dan akhirnya digunakan pada kereta produksi pada tahun 1960-an.Kalau struktur cukai kita berbeza, pasti akan ada lebih banyak penukaran LS.

小引擎+涡轮增压,到底是好是坏?

如今的引擎已经越做越小了,而这都要归结于1905年的那个发明——涡轮增压器。涡轮增压器最早是为大型多缸柴油引擎设计的,一般会搭配在飞机的星形发动机上。随后,在1960年代,量产车上也开始了对涡轮增压器的应用。如果我们有不同的税收政策,我们可能会见到更多的LS引擎改装 图片来源:Super Street在大马,配备涡轮增压器的车型十分常见,因为它能够从小排量引擎中压榨出更多动力,这样就可以避免大排量引擎带来的高昂道路税。在不久的将来,将会有更多的小型涡轮增压引擎出现在市面上。举例来说,Nissan Almera和Honda City的泰国版车型都只搭载了1.0升的涡轮增压引擎,即将到来的Perodua D55L也可能会搭载1.0升的涡轮增压引擎。Ford Fiesta Ecoboost搭载的1.0省涡轮增压引擎是最早的一批1.0升涡轮增压引擎。小型涡轮增压引擎越来越多的直接原因就是越来越严格的排放要求,因为引擎越小,排放量就越少,就是这么简单。虽然涡轮增压器可能是高性能的代名词,但将它们使用在小引擎上,只是一种弥补小引擎动力的手段。如果两具引擎的排量相同,那么装

如果碟式煞车更好的话,为什么现在的汽车还在用鼓式煞车?

Perodua Myvi全系的后轮都采用了鼓式煞车(下文简称“鼓煞”,“碟煞”同理),而目前的Honda City也是如此。不过,对于Toyota Vios而言,其“G”版本的后轮都是实心盘碟煞,而剩下的“E”和“J”版本的后轮则是鼓煞。鼓煞常被视为“穷人配备”,但它却在今天的汽车上依旧常见。Penny-Farthing脚踏车上的古董煞车在把鼓煞视为落后之前,我们要知道的一点是,鼓煞和碟煞都是在20世纪初提出的设计。不过,碟煞在煞车力度和散热方面都取代了鼓煞。发光的碟煞碟盘  图片来源 碟煞常与高性能联系在一起,这样的观点是完全正确的。作为长不大的汽车爱好者,我们最爱的就是会发光的煞车碟盘,它们会根据温度的不同而变成绿色、黄色或红色。红色的煞车卡钳并不会提升煞车效能或者车子的马力除了碟煞的高性能外,它的审美价值也为世界各地的车迷们所欣赏。红色的煞车卡钳十分流行,催生出了许多模仿红色卡钳的做法,比如喷漆或者直接加装一个红色的盖
