Who makes Fords?

Ford Motor Company is an American automotive manufacturer with production plants across the world. Until 2002, passenger cars made for sale in the UK were produced here, but today the Dagenham and Bridgend plants only make engines, which are then transported to the EU where the cars are assembled.

Are Ford cars reliable?

As the manufacturer of some of the UK’s most popular models, Ford is considered to be a solid choice when it comes to vehicle ownership. New car buyers are, of course, covered by a three-year/60,000-mile warranty for added peace of mind. Among the most reliable SUVs in the range are the Ford Kuga and Ford EcoSport – in fact, the Kuga is considered one of the more reliable models in its class by What Car? magazine.

What is the best-selling Ford car?

The best-selling Ford car is also the best-selling model in the UK: the Ford Fiesta. This is closely followed by the Ford Focus, which in turn is followed by the Ford Kuga. All three models appear in the top 10 best-selling models for 2019 as of April 2019.

Is Ford Focus a good car?

As one of the most popular vehicles among British motorists, the Ford Focus is widely considered to be a good car. It provides plenty of room for occupants, comfortable seating, and a good driving position. Ford is also famed for its clever engineering that provides a responsive and agile drive – and the Focus benefits from this. With low running costs too, it’s a favourite for young families.

​What Ford SUV has 7 seats?

As yet, there are no Ford SUVs on sale in the UK that offer seven seats. The largest model in the SUV lineup is the Ford Edge, which is a spacious option, but those needing to seat seven will currently need to opt for either a Grand C-MAX, S-MAX or Galaxy.

Are Ford Kugas 4x4?

The Ford Kuga is available as both a front-wheel drive and 4x4, enabling you to choose which option is best for you. The 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol variant with 182PS is four-wheel drive as standard, as is the 2.0-litre diesel model with 180PS. If you choose the 150PS diesel, you can add four-wheel drive as an option.

Are Ford Fiestas good cars?

As the UK’s best-selling car, many would argue that the Fiesta is a great option, particularly for those in need of a reliable hatchback. Not only does it offer an engaging and nimble drive, it’s also surprisingly spacious inside and economical to run. Newer models and higher trim levels provide a comprehensive amount of in-car and safety equipment, making them popular with tech enthusiasts and young families.
