Ford Ranger Wildtrak - on sale in November
It’s not just the Ford B-Max and the Ford Vertrek that are getting an airing at the Geneva Motor Show this week – it’s Ford’s commercial stuff too. Well, Ford’s pick-up crossed with a car, anyway. Ford are showing off their range-topping Ford Ranger Wildtrak, all butch and blue with a fake rollover bar but a real ground clearance and decent wading depth.
This is our second glimpse of a new range-extender sports car concept that Infiniti will unveil at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March; it's already been teased once before. So presumably the engine that's part of electrified powertrain isn't the company's big 3.7-litre V6? You're right there.
Wards Automotive released its 20th annual top 10 list of the best engines for 2014, with turbocharged, supercharged and diesel engines claiming the top spots as well as one electric motor. To be eligible, the new or improved engine must be on sale in a production vehicle during the first quarter of 2014. This powertrain revolution features world-class engine technology so compelling that they’re actually becoming the selling points for most buyers.
