AUTO NEWS in 60: Ford Milestone; Hyundai Trucks?; Jaguar Stunt


Ford’s ecoboost engine meets a big milestone….
I’m Jerry Reynolds the car pro with your automotive news in sixty seconds. This month, ford produced its 5-millionth
ecoboost equipped vehicle. It was a 1.0-liter turbocharged ford focus that rolled off the
production line at its Michigan assembly plant. And remember Hyundai’s Santa Cruz concept,
recently unveiled in detroit. Well hyundai says response is, quote, “so good”, it
may just decide to build a production pickup. This comes as hyundai also reportedly plans
to expand operations at its Alabama plant, so it can build more of its SUV’s here in
the US. And jaguar is planning quite a debut next
week for its new XF sedan. It’s going to have a stuntman drive the
car across some high-wire in London — above water no less! — and then stream the whole
thing live, online. All we can say is don’t try this one at
home….i’m Jerry Reynolds the car pro! Have a great week!
