Ford’s new generation Expedition is the pinnacle of its SUV line-up, and the fourth-generation model has been stuffed with a host of cutting-edge tech to make it a far superior proposition to its predecessor in the three-row, offroad-capable, full-size SUV segment.
The original GMC Terrain crossover was first introduced in our region a decade ago. Now in its third generation, GMC’s latest Terrain offers new levels of style and sophistication, with a choice of powerful-yet-economical 1.5-litre turbo or 2.0-litre turbo engines, both mated to 9-speed automatics. We’re going to take a look at the top 5 coolest features that define this premium crossover.
The typical minibus you may have had the displeasure to travel in at one time or another is nothing more than a converted cargo van with retrofitted bench seats. They are unsafe, loud and uncomfortable if your journey lasts anything more than 10 minutes. However, while the top names in the people-moving business have been the Toyota Hiace and the Hyundai H1 so far, Ford has now thrown their hat in the ring with their Tourneo Custom for the first time in the Middle East. Already a best-selling name in Europe for decades, the Tourneo Custom minibus is ready to make its mark here,
The strongly-contested crossover segment has numerous players nowadays, but one stalwart that has consistently done well in the Middle East market is the Ford Edge. Introduced a decade ago, the Edge has been a segment leader for several years. It also offers the third best resale value among all cars in the UAE, according to a report by CarSwitch. The Edge has been redesigned from the ground up for the latest generation that debuted in the region this year, and Ford has massively stepped up its game.

Big, bold and powerful, they are icons with reputations built over more than half a century. Nowadays, you can outfit them as anything from barebones work-trucks to complete luxury cars, so all you ever need is one vehicle in your life. Still, innovation has not been a strong suit of the pickup-truck industry over the years, but a bombshell was dropped recently in the form of the all-new Ford F-150, and it’s a complete game-changer compared to the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500.
