In yesterday’s press release, Ford announced that a 2013 Shelby GT500 will be auctioned, in partnership with the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Held every year since 1971, the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction has helped Ford raise more than $3 million for the JDRF in the last five years. Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes because it’s usually diagnosed in childhood, is an autoimmune condition that affects nearly 1.3 million Americans, or five percent of people with diabetes.
Other Ford cars that have been auctioned in the name of the JDRF include production samples of the Shelby GT500KR and the Shelby GT, as well as the Grabber Blue Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca last year.
On Saturday, January 21, the auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, will be televised live on SPEED Channel. Ford’s President of The Americas, Mark Fields and members of SVT will join the one-of-a-kind car on stage for the event. The 650-horsepower GT500 comes equipped with six-point harness Recaro racing seats, donated by Recaro North America, and is signed by the members of the SVT engineering team. It will likely remain “a museum piece as it can’t be registered for road use,” according to AutoBlog.com.
As we told you last week, Ford has a new Fusion in the works. This week, Ford unveiled the sporty looking coupe at the Detroit Auto Show, and it was everything industry experts had anticipated.
Drawing on the “One Ford” model, which has Ford bringing the same vehicles (though sometimes renamed) to every market, rather than making different models for European, Asian, South American, African, and North American drivers, the Fusion is slick. The Wall Street Journal said it drew on design elements of the Aston Martin, but most people will look at it and think BMW or Mercedes. This is not your average, boring, make-sure-it’s-really-yours-bef0re-putting-the-key-in-because-they-all-look-the-same family sedan. This is the make-everyone-at-the-PTA-jealous-of-the-European-styling-of-your-American-vehicle family sedan.
Even better than its looks are the Fusion’s technical specs. Ford plans to make both an electric-gasoline hybrid model (the Fusion Hybrid) and an all-electric model (the Fusion Energi), and all three versions are impressively fuel-efficient. Even the all-gasoline model has an EPA mpg of 23city/33hwy, which is great for a five-passenger mid-sized sedan.

The 2013 Ford Escape has been talked about for months as a highly-anticipated crossover-style redesign will be implemented. As the Ford Story reports, it’s what’s under the hood. it’s what’s under the hood that will make the 2013 Escape a true break-though.
So what is under the hood? The 2013 Escape will feature 3 different Ecoboost engine options, the most ever offered in a Ford SUV. The first is the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder model which offers a great combination of power and fuel economy, and the second is the 2.5-liter Ti-VCT four-cylinder. The most surprising and innovative option, however, is the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder Ecoboost, which is being offered in the U.S. for the first time and is expected to achieve even higher fuel economy than the 31-MPG Ford Escape Hybrid.
Also making headlines is the highly anticipated front-wheel-drive Ford C-MAX hybrid. It was just announced that the model will feature an impressive 500-mile driving range using the battery and engine, which is more than any other plug-in hybrid or extended-range vehicle on the market. The C-MAX Hybrid will be available along with the C-MAX Energi plug-in in North America next year.
