It appears that the boxy jeep vehicles are dying out and there are not a lot of them available to replace them. The 2017 Ford Troller T4 vehicle is going to attempt to do just that and as you can see from the pictures and its design it has an old school boxy look that you do not see recently in some of the newer vehicles. There have been a lot of vehicles that have been discontinued recently that have this sort of a look and besides the Bronco we also said goodbye to FJ Cruiser quite a while ago. But, fortunately fans of these brutish sort of a cars and vehicles have a substitute that will help them go through the losses in an easier way. The design of the Troller T4is quite brutish and imposing, the way people like it to be and is a vehicle that has a lot of characteristics present from the older Jeep and cars, particularly the Wrangler model.

This model will have a very robust front end as it has a different front fascia that has some new design elements to it. The front side has a lot of plastic elements added to it which angular elements that also enhances its strength. The trademark part are of course the irreplaceable circular headlights that are going to be the decorative part of the front side of the car. The front side also adds a mesh grille with an open bumper and angular fenders, combine it with the boxy hood and you get a perfectly good old-school design that many fans have been craving for. Added as well are the roofline spoilers, a square tail-light and a robust bumper that brings everything together. The final touch is the spare tire which is mounted on the back side of the car.

Interior

The inside of the 2017 Ford Troller T4 going to be very different from the inside of the vehicle it was based on. The car is supposed to get an upgraded inside although we do not have all the necessary details about it yet. We do hope that the inside gets revealed soon so we know what we are up against, but for now we are working with available rumors and things that have been mentioned by people from Ford. We do know that the cabin is going to retain its robust properties and that it will be a standout car in terms of looks and design, but we also know that Ford is going to upgrade a lot of things inside as well. If we are to thrust the way Ford is redesigning their current models for now we can expect to get some added comfort upgrades and a larger package of equipment and additional services that the car comes with. Perhaps the materials used for the seats will be the best thing that gains n upgrade here.

Engine

The engine of the 2017 Troller T4 is going to be a remarkable one. It will feature a powerful option that will make sure that the car is well made to produce a lot of power for any sort of an activity you want it for. The engine utilized is the Power stroke 3.2-liter which is going to add an outstanding rate of 197 horsepower and 350 lt-ft of torque. A 6 speed gearbox is going to be added here as well and a standard FWD drive as well. You also get the car in 4WD which is a mandatory option for a vehicle such as this one.

Price and release date

The release date is still a mystery for the 2017 Ford Troller T4 car. We do not have a lot of details to go on as the car is still being made at the Brazilian factory where the previous ones were built. As the latest statements that are coming out of Ford say, we can expect to see it on the road by the end of 2016 the earliest but perhaps mid-2017 is a more believable scenario. It is also great to know that the car is going to have a starting price of around 30,000 USD which is very cheap for a vehicle like this one.

2017 Ford Escape Release Date, Specs and News

2017 Ford Escape Release Date, Review – Undoubtedly one of our favorites in this competitive segment, the small 2017 Ford Escape utility vehicle offers advanced technology features, athletic driving dynamics, and an inviting interior. And with its turbocharged and high-potent engines, agile handling, comfortable seating, and high-tech features galore, it is undeniably appealing. Its date of release should be expected in August 2017.

These segment is well known for its many talents including but not limited to plenty of utility and to some extent – towing. Be it loading up goods from Costco, taking your lovely angels to school, or going on a ski trip. Conspicuously missing and often the main cause of dissatisfaction is a sense of fun.

But not anymore, with the redesigned 2017 Ford Escape, you won’t be forced to look elsewhere as it comes with all the amenities necessary to offer you a spirited driving. It drives and feels like the Ford Focus to some extent as it shares most of its mechanical underpinnings with it. This therefore means you get respectable fuel economy ratings, a super cool front sensor, an optional AWD, and one of the best acceleration in its class.

However, we are a bit concerned about its limited interior room relative to its competitors, missing cabin storage cubbies, and a finicky base control layout. Otherwise, the Escape comes chock full of desirable features and tech list.

However, it is always imperative to check out other alternatives before ultimately deciding on one vehicle. As such, you should check out the 2017 Mazda CX-5 model – offers most of the Escape’s capabilities but offers an updated infotainment system. But if you are looking for something extra, both the “A” rated 2017 Toyota RAV4, and 2017 Honda CR-V are great options. And unlike the Escape, they offer a spacious cabin and cargo spaces, are exceptionally easy to drive, and offer plenty of customization.

Although larger, the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is also a great option for those looking for a peppy performance. Nevertheless, the Ford Escape for 2017 remains a smart choice due to its array of practicality and exceptional talents.

The headlights and the added LED elements are going to be similar to the offered trim levels that get to be offered, but Ford made sure that each car has a standalone distinction to its headlights design. What makes the car different from each other are the small styling in the design which are the most apparent in the Fusion V6 Sport trim.

Engine specs

The 2017 Ford Fusion is going to be a sporty performance vehicle so it is no wonder that the car is getting an updated engine. The Ford’s EcoBoost twin-turbo  2.7 liter V6 engine is a great engine variant for this vehicle and with an output of 325 horsepower it leads us to believe that this is a great option and that they are taking to Fusion in the right direction. The Fusion V6 Sport also in includes a an active suspension which  reduce the impact of unexpected divots in the road.

The hybrid electric version of the Fusion is going to utilize the power of a 2.0 liter gasoline engine with electric assist.  Energi’s 7.6 kilowatt-hour compact lithium-ion battery  has a range of 19 miles in full speed and a full range of 500 miles when using the combined efforts of the gasoline and the electric engine.

Interior update

The interior of the 2017 Ford Fusion is going to be kept similar to the one from before. The car is going to continue using the reconfigurable digital dash and is going to combine it with a thick and sporty steering wheel. The new addition is the rotary shift dial which is going to be placed on the console and is going to reduce the cluttering on the dash that way, at least visually speaking. There is also the large Smartphone-style touchscreen which you can use to control the SYNC system. Using the SYNC system you can connect via your Smartphone so you can remote control the start options for the car.
