High and Mighty: The Dangerous Rise of the SUV
High and Mighty: The Dangerous Rise of the SUV
SUVs have taken over America's roads. Ad campaigns promote them as safer and "greener" than ordinary cars and easy to handle in bad weather. But very little about the SUV's image is accurate. They poorly protect occupants and inflict horrific damage in crashes, they guzzle gasoline, and they are hard to control.

Keith Bradsher has been at the forefront in reporting the calamitous safety and environmental record of SUVs, including the notorious Ford-Firestone rollover controversy. In High and Mighty, he traces the checkered history of SUVs, showing how they came to be classified not as passenger cars but as light trucks, which are subject to less strict regulations on safety, gas mileage, and air pollution. He makes a powerful case that these vehicles are even worse than we suspect--for their occupants, for other motorists, for pedestrians and for the planet itself.

In the tradition of Unsafe at Any Speed and Fast Food Nation, Bradsher's book is a damning expose of an industry that puts us all at risk, whether we recognize it or not.

2013 Ford Escape
2013 Ford Escape: The muscular, defined exterior shape of the 2013 Ford Escape is complemented by a dynamic, well-appointed interior featuring new levels of craftsmanship and technology. (11/16/2011) ALL-NEW FORD ESCAPE: SMARTER UTILITY VEHICLE TO MAKE OWNERS' LIVES EASIER All-new Ford Escape unveiled today at LA Show Ford’s newest sport utility vehicle (SUV) arrives next year in the US and Europe Named the Ford Kuga in Europe, this vehicle comes to the Geneva Motor Show in March and will offer unique European powertrains and features BRENTWOOD, Essex, 16 November, 2011 – Ford's newest sport utility vehicle unveiled as the Ford Escape in Los Angeles today, is destined for the US and Europe next year. Its European equivalent, the Ford Kuga, will be shown in Geneva in March and will offer unique powertrains and features. “We call our all-new Ford Escape the ‘Smarter Utility Vehicle’ because it offers the strengths that customers today really value – fuel economy, versatility and new technology that makes driving and living with the vehicle easier and more fun – all wrapped in a sleek, more modern design,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Global Product Development. “Ford understands that more people every year are looking at vehicles like Escape, and we want to give them even more reasons to buy.” In addition to more cargo volume behind the first and second rows than today’s vehicle, the new Escape delivers: Eleven features no other small SUV offers Clever technologies including an available hands-free power liftgate that allows quick and easy access to cargo with the kick of a foot Projected best fuel economy of any US compact SUV, up to five mpg better than the previous Escape Driving dynamics that make the drive experience more engaging on-road and a new Ford Intelligent 4WD system that provides better traction off-road Sleek new design, with better interior materials and finishing touches Escape technology makes life better An array of clever technologies adds to the new Escape’s versatility, helping make life easier for its owners. Key features include: An available hands-free power liftgate brings new technology to the SUV market and is enabled by motion technology used in today’s video game systems. A gentle kicking motion under the centre of the rear bumper activates, unlocks and raises the liftgate when the driver has the Escape key fob. This allows quick and easy access to the cargo area. The same process closes the hatch SYNC® with MyFord Touch® offers multiple ways for customers to manage and control information through voice commands, menus accessed through controls on the steering wheel, touch screens, buttons or knobs Parallel parking the Escape is virtually stress-free with active park assist. With the press of a button, the system detects an available parallel parking space and automatically steers the vehicle into the space. Drivers control only the accelerator and brake pedals Escape’s sensor-based BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, triggers a warning sound when a vehicle is detected entering a blind spot The all-new Ford Escape is the first Ford SUV to combine class-exclusive technology to automatically slow the vehicle when it’s cornering too fast (Curve Control) or help accelerate through a turn (Torque Vectoring Control); a new Intelligent 4WD System helps deliver outstanding handling on pristine pavement and in adverse conditions as well, along with excellent traction off-road Spirited performance with outstanding fuel economy In the US, Escape offers Ford’s broadest nameplate range of EcoBoost® engine choices yet. Strong fuel economy comes from either the available 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine or 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine. The European Ford Kuga powertrain line-up will be announced closer to launch. Aiding fuel economy is Escape’s sleeker design. The new model is nearly 10 per cent more aerodynamic than the outgoing model. Plus, the new Escape’s active grille shutter system, which is on all models with the 1.6-litre EcoBoost and 2.5-litre four-cylinder engines, reduces wind resistance. Grille slats stay open when extra engine cooling air is required, such as low-speed stop-and-go driving. When cruising on the highway at steady speeds, the grille slats automatically close to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. Versatility and capability come standard Stowing and towing are even easier in the new five-passenger Escape, thanks to a low liftover height of 27in, more innovations and cargo volume that surpasses the outgoing Escape – with 68.1 cubic feet of space behind the first row and 34.3 cubic feet behind the second row. The new Escape’s rear seats have been designed to fold flat easily. With the touch of a button, the head restraint folds down and with the lift of a handle on the seat, the seatback folds and dives as the seat folds flat and clicks into position. Escape also fea

Ford Thunderbird
Der Ford Thunderbird war ein vom US-amerikanischen Automobilhersteller Ford von 1955 bis 1997 und erneut von 2002 bis 2005 angebotenes, sportlich orientiertes Pkw-Modell. Der kurz T-Bird genannte Wagen gilt als einer der Klassiker des amerikanischen Automobilbaus. Er symbolisiert in den USA die 1950er und 1960er Jahre. Der Name „Thunderbird“ (englisch: „Donnervogel“) steht fur einen der am langsten in der Automobil- und Industriegeschichte durchgangig verwendeten Warennamen. Am Anfang war der Thunderbird (1955–1957) noch ein reiner sportlicher Zweisitzer und wurde als Konkurrenz zur Chevrolet Corvette platziert. Fur den Thunderbird sprach damals der V8-Motor, den die Corvette erst spater bekam. Die spateren Modelle (1958–1969) hatten die charakteristische kantigere Form der mittleren 60er Jahre. Die Motorleistung wuchs von etwa 150 bis auf uber 300 PS, und die Fahrzeuge waren als Viersitzer deutlich gro?er als das Ursprungsmodell. Von 1968 bis 1971 gab es den Thunderbird auch als vierturige Version, wobei die hinteren Turen gegenlaufig offneten - Suicide Doors wie beim Lincoln Continental der Jahre 1961–1970. Spatestens zu diesem Zeitpunkt waren die Fahrzeuge offiziell maximal als Sechssitzer erhaltlich. Es gab aber auch Funfsitzer-Kombinationen mit drei vorderen und zwei hinteren Sitzen. Zumindest fur die Fahrzeuge der Jahre 1967–1971 gilt, dass sie im Fahrverhalten und im Verbrauch besser als die Konkurrenz von GM und Chrysler abschnitten. In den 80er und 90er Jahren verlor der Wagen allerdings immer mehr an „Gesicht“ und Bedeutung. Gro?e und Leistung blieben im Verhaltnis zu anderen Fahrzeugen zwar weiterhin gut, wiesen aber keinen technischen Vorsprung mehr wie in fruheren Jahren auf. Die Motorisierung in den 80ern waren R4-Turbomotoren sowie V6- und V8-Triebwerke. Zum Ende der 80er und die 90er hindurch gab es V6-, V8- und V6-Kompressormotoren. Trotz des sich verandernden Kauferverhaltens, welches SUV's und Pickups auf den Vormarsch brachte, wies der Thunderbird bis in die 90er-Jahre gute Verkaufszahlen auf. Parallel dazu verloren Personal Luxury Cars immer mehr an Bedeutung. Mit der letzten Auflage, die ab dem Modelljahr 2002 bis Ende 2005 hergestellt, wurde eine Reminiszenz an die Urversion dieses Autos geschaffen, das zu den legendarsten Automobilen der Welt zahlt. Der ursprungliche und heute ikonische Thunderbird-Zweisitzer war von Ford als Alternative zu europaischen Sportwagen, namentlich dem Jaguar XK 140, geplant. Beruhmt wurde das Hardtop des 57er-Modells mit seinen seitlichen runden Bullaugen-Fenstern. Angetrieben wurde der Thunderbird von einem neu konstruierten V8-Motor von 4,8 Liter Hubraum (292 cui), der mit Vierfachvergaser 193 SAE-PS (142 kW) leistete. Die Kraftubertragung ubernahm serienma?ig ein Dreiganggetriebe; gegen Mehrpreis waren ein Viergang-Overdrive-Getriebe und eine Ford-O-Matic-Automatik erhaltlich. 1956 wurde der Thunderbird leicht uberarbeitet. Kennzeichen waren das au?enliegende Reserverad am Heck, Windabweiser an den A-Saulen und Entluftungsschlitze an den vorderen Kotflugeln. Der 4,8-Liter war nun mit 200 bis 202 SAE-PS angegeben, neu war ein „Thunderbird Special“-V8 mit 5,1 Litern (312 cui), der 215, mit Automatik 225 SAE-PS leistete. Das Modell 1957 erfuhr ein gro?eres Facelift mit starker akzentuierten Heckflossen und einer einteiligen Sto?stangen/Kuhlergrillkombination an der Front; das Reserverad war wieder im Kofferraum untergebracht. Der 4,8-Liter wurde mit 212, der 5,1-Liter mit 245 SAE-PS angegeben; zusatzlich kam eine Kompressorvariante dieser Maschine in das Programm, die 300 SAE-PS leistete. wikipedia
