Ford Focus RS Spy Shots Reveal It May Be Close to Production

Get Ready, The Focus RS is Coming…. The Ford Fiesta ST and Focus ST are already fierce enough to excite hot hatch enthusiasts, but a little more fire couldn’t hurt.

Ford Adds LED Lighting at Manufacturing Plants

LED lights are a great modern invention. Not only do the lights seem to last forever (15-year life expectancy), but they also produce brighter light and use less energy than their fluorescent and high-intensity discharge counterparts.
