In advance of National Teen Driver Safety Week (Oct. 16-22), a new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), funded by a grant from the Ford Motor Company fund, shows that while much progress has been made in reducing teen driver-involved traffic crashes and deaths over the past decade, teens drivers are still 1.6 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than their adult counterparts and teen-involved fatal crashes increased by 10 percent in 2015.
The report also reveals that while great progress has been made at reducing younger teen driver deaths (ages 15-17), more needs to be done for older teen drivers (ages 18-20). The report provides recommendations for actions that can be taken to continue a decrease in teen deaths.
“This data shows that smart programs, like Driving Skills for Life, that focus on teen driving behavior have been very successful in helping novice and younger drivers be safer on the roads,” said Jim Graham, Global Manager for the Ford Driving Skills for Life program.
To read more of the report “Mission Not Accomplished: Teen Safe Driving, the Next Chapter,” an interactive PDF version of the report is available online.
Ford Driving Skills for Life was established in 2003 by Ford Motor Company Fund, the Governors Highway Safety Association, and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed teens and parents the necessary skills for safe driving beyond what they learn in standard driver education programs. The basic premise behind Ford Driving Skills for Life is to provide a step in the learning process, providing new skills and information not currently shared with newly licensed drivers in the basic driver education courses.
The program has trained more than one million individuals in safe driving practices. It is offered in 35 countries, and hands-on driving clinics have been conducted in all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

2017 Ford Super Duty: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner | Super Duty | Ford

The all-new 2017 Super Duty comes in first place in every measure of tough – that it’s the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty ever built.

Friday, October 14, 2016


  • Ford Transit sales momentum in the U.S. is strong, with sales up 31 percent year to date – making Transit the best-selling van in America
  • Ford is well established as Europe’s best-selling commercial vehicle brand, based on strong demand for Transit, the No. 1 nameplate in the medium commercial van segment there, according to data from IHS Markit
  • Ford Transit is the best-selling nameplate in the light bus and van segment in China, on track to become the best-selling nameplate there for 2016, based on data from China Insurance Information Technology Company

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 13, 2016 – Fleets and tradespeople around the world are increasingly turning to Ford vans to get the job done, making the Ford Transit family the best-selling lineup of cargo vans on the planet.

Ford Transit was the best-selling cargo van family[i] globally in 2015, with nearly 400,000 vans registered, based on IHS Markit global new vehicle registration data for calendar year-end 2015.

“We are focused on building on our clear global leadership in trucks, vans and commercial vehicles,” says Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, Global Product Development, and chief technical officer. “While other manufacturers only offer their van lineups regionally, Ford has cracked the code on developing global van architecture that can be customized to regional needs.”

The success of Transit has propelled Ford to become the top seller of commercial cargo vans in the United States. Ford controls 40 percent of the full-size commercial van market in the country through September – up from 36 percent in 2015. Strong demand for Transit is putting Ford on track for its best year for U.S. van sales since 1978, based on Ford-reported data. Transit now outsells even America’s best-selling minivan, based on industry-reported sales.

“U.S. customers have enthusiastically embraced Transit as a capable, flexible, smart work vehicle,” said Julie Ellenberger, Ford brand manager for Transit, Transit Connect and E-Series. “Transit offers best-in-class flexibility with more configurations than ever. Plus, its powertrains are specially engineered for North American buyers.”

Overall industry sales for Class 1-3 vans in the United States and Mexico are expected to continue growing, according to work truck industry association NTEA, which predicts industry sales will increase 10 percent in 2016 compared with 2015.

Transit is building on a 50-plus-year legacy in Europe, where it has been the best-selling van in its segment in the U.K. since 1984, according to IHS Markit registration data. In the past 25 months, Ford has seen its commercial vehicle market share grow from 10.8 percent to 12.9 percent in Europe, based on data from IHS Markit.

This makes Ford the No. 1-selling commercial vehicle brand in Europe for the first time in 18 years, thanks to continued growing demand for its completely new and expanded Transit range – including Transit, Transit Custom, Transit Connect and Transit Courier – based on IHS Markit commercial vehicle registrations.

Transit is the best-selling nameplate in the light bus and van segment in China, on track to become the best-selling nameplate there for 2016, based on data from China Insurance Information Technology Company.

Deep roots for Ford commercial cargo van leadership

Ford’s commercial cargo van legacy began when the first Transit left the production line in Langley, England, Aug. 9, 1965. Transit became a favorite in Europe, and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary there.

In the United States, Ford became the van leader 36 years ago with success of its Ford E-Series van lineup, first sold in 1961 as Ford Econoline. The full-size Ford Transit was introduced in the country in 2014 – replacing E-Series – and quickly took over the title of America’s best-selling van, based on Ford analysis of industry-reported sales.

Ford is expanding its Transit lineup in China as part of its relationship with Jiangling Motors Corporation, which started in August 1995, with the first Ford Transit produced there in December 1997. Production of the all-new Transit Kombi started in September.

More than 8 million Transit and Transit Custom vehicles have been built, as the range grew from a single model more than half a century ago to an entire family of commercial cargo vehicles. Lined up end-to-end, 50 years of Transit vans would circle the globe. A customer buys a new Transit every 180 seconds on average, based on Ford sales and production data.

Ford Police Interceptor Utility Debuts Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights To Complement T Front Interior Visor Light Bar

  • New Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights for the Ford Police Interceptor Utility flash bright red, blue or amber to provide clear and direct communication to drivers of an emergency response situation
  • Feature enables agencies to run “slick top” – meaning no roof-mounted light bar is visible and the vehicle can maintain full front and rear lighting capability
  • Fully programmable front and rear lights offer a wide range of illumination

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 3, 2016 – Ford police vehicles just went deeper undercover.

Ford is debuting Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights to complement the “no-profile” Front Interior Visor Light Bar on Police Interceptor Utility. The feature integrates bright LED lighting into the vehicle’s rear spoiler, providing law enforcement with a highly effective tool to alert drivers of emergency roadside situations while affording officers full visibility out the rear window. When deactivated, the lighting is difficult to detect for someone approaching the vehicle from the rear.

“Aftermarket light bars can impede visibility by hanging down over the glass,” said Stephen Tyler, Ford police brand marketing manager. “Our fully programmable Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights are integrated into the spoiler, so agencies get their bright red, blue and amber LEDs with no compromise to rear visibility.”

Aftermarket products mount inside or outside the glass then extend into the rear window – impeding visibility. Ford’s warning lights free up that space for unimpeded rearward vision.

The option complements Ford’s “no-profile” Front Interior Visor Light Bar, a covert feature that provides a similar improvement in forward vision over aftermarket options.

When activated, the new warning lights flash alternating bright red and blue bars in the rear spoiler; they can also be programmed for red/red, blue/blue or amber operation, providing drivers with directional signaling information. An auto-dimming capability can be programmed from full intensity down to 20 percent.

“Together with our front visor light bar, Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights offer a fully integrated solution for agencies wishing to minimize the presence of their police vehicles,” said Arie Groeneveld, chief program engineer, Ford police programs. “While signaling to drivers of an upcoming emergency situation, it constitutes a clear safety benefit for officers and the public.”

The feature can be ordered now for the 2017 Police Interceptor Utility. As with all Ford-provided police vehicle options, Rear Spoiler Traffic Warning Lights come with a limited factory warranty.
