Ford to make five safety technologies standard with Co-Pilot360

He also said Ford will offer a "lineup of off-road SUVs", including a small, purpose-built SUV and the Bronco, which is arriving in 2020. Ford is promising a vehicle capable of serious off-roading.

But the stock price of the company had barely moved under new CEO Jim Hackett, whereas Tesla's stock has stayed at lofty heights and even cross-town rivals General Motors and FCA have seen market capitalization increase of late.

"The technology addresses Ford research showing a growing trend of people worrying about hitting pedestrians - and will be standard on 91 percent of Ford vehicles in North America by 2020", Ford wrote in a news release.

Ford made a whole bunch of news on Thursday in announcing numerous product plans for the next several years-including a Bronco Hybrid, Explorer ST, and all-new small off-road SUV. The new Ford off-road duo will differ from Jeep by boasting more speed, a smoother ride and a cockpit packed with more creature comforts, he said.

It is said that by 2021, Ford will be selling more hybrid cars to the United States than Toyota.

"Ford also plans to drive growth with two all-new off-road models: the new Bronco and a yet-to-be-named off-road small utility - both created to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends". Ford must be constantly revisiting its strategy to keep up with the demands of a quickly evolving marketplace, one headed inexorably towards greater electrification and autonomous driving.

Saints add to depth in the secondary with signing of Patrick Robinson
Robinson spent the first four years of his career with the Saints after being drafted with the #32 overall pick in the 2010 draft. According to ESPN's Dan Graziano , the deal is worth up to $20 million over four years, with $10 million in guaranteed money.

The company has been in some ways left behind by other carmakers, its market share declining two per cent over the past five years. Ford and Toyota - which also offers its Safety Sense standard on virtually everything - are tied as the country's No. 2 OEM, according to Statista.

As for the all-electric Fords that are on the way, we don't know much about them yet. Ford, which is also adding the already-revealed Edge ST, aims to grow its Performance division's sales by 71 percent by 2020 thanks to contributions from SUVs.

But for now, as they hurriedly recover the models they let us glimpse for a few seconds only, we have to wait and wonder, as we always do in Europe, which of the above models will find their way to us.

"For Jeep, that's rock crawling in Moab, for Ford, that's something different". Ford will also have a commercial van unibody and a battery-electric vehicle platform.

These technologies are not new at Ford, but what is new is that company is offering them standard in all of its vehicles.

For trucks, Ford highlights its new diesel engine for the F-150, the resurrected Ranger, new Super Duty F-Series and the new hybrid F-150. The new system includes automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitors, backup cameras, lane keep assist, and auto high beams.
