Beginning this summer, current Ford and Lincoln customers will be able to add a host of technology features, including in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi, to their 2010–2016 car or truck courtesy of a new system called SmartLink. The retroactive upgrade will be sold at Ford and Lincoln dealerships and can be plugged in to the OBD II port of eligible vehicles. 

Ford’s announcement of SmartLink follows closely on the heels of the company’s news that a handful of 2018 model Fords equipped with Sync 3 will offer an in-car Wi-Fi network , a feature that  General Motors has provided in a number of its cars since 2015. As at GM, the 2018 Fords equipped with Wi-Fi will rely on AT&T’s 4G LTE network to support up to 10 devices on the vehicle’s Wi-Fi network. SmartLink, though, will connect users to the internet via Verizon’s 4G LTE network and will support up to eight devices.

While the ability to add Wi-Fi to earlier-model Fords and Lincolns will surely be SmartLink’s most talked-about asset, the tool also integrates with a dedicated smartphone app  that allows users to lock, unlock, and start their car or truck remotely. Additional features within the SmartLink mobile app include vehicle maintenance and security alerts and a vehicle location tool. The cost? Ford is not ready to talk pricing for the SmartLink hardware or Verizon’s data services.

Et tu 4Runner?  So many historically famous cars are back with “good old days” styling but added overweight dimensions to the party. It’s sort of like Fat Elvis, on four wheels.  That said, “Moody Blue” is a pretty catchy song. And there’s nothing especially wrong with the 2010 Toyota 4Runner.  Elvis rocked the rhinestones with passion and the 4Runner combines it’s rugged past with urban sheetmetal and a host of electronic cocktails for pleasure and enjoyment. Which gives the impression that happy days are here again, even if polypharmacy did lead to the death of the King of Rock ‘N Roll.

The new 4Runner takes everything enjoyable from the original model and adds a shot of steroids.  The styling is proof: oversized fenders, blocky A-pillars and surprisingly short (and efficient) bumper overhangs.  The angry headlight eyebrows are an improvement from the outgoing model, but lack the classic Toyota truck virtue of honest workhorse design. Tough for toughness sake, perhaps?  Clock that small-ish greenhouse, but note the surprisingly decent visibility. While the 4Runner is a politically correct HUMMER H2, the menacing hood bulge looks truck-tastic behind the wheel.

Maybe the 4Runner is a poor man’s Land Rover: the dashboard was cribbed from something suitable for a weekend in the UK countryside. Never mind Toyota’s (now expected) rubbish plastics and a lack of charming British oak, there’s liquid-smooth buttonage, vents, and knobs.  Even the fake aluminum looks nicer than any paint job has a right to.  But the Limited-grade 4Runner’s leather trim feels and smells like a new rubber hose.  And again, there’s simply too much hard plastic on the dash and door panels to keep the GM references at bay:  the line between these two automakers is thinner and more blurred.

The Ford Fusion entered the 2010 model year with two new versions added to the line-up: Hydrid and Sport. The new Fusion features new design (inside and out), improved and new technologies and new powertrains with improved fuel consumption.

The 2010 Fusion features a more aggressive front fascia with new headlamps, grille and fog lamps; the three-bar grille in particular is larger with a more modern look. The fog lamps are housed below in a trapezoidal-shaped lower opening to help complete the more-muscular look. At the rear there are new modernized taillights and decklid to help give the vehicle a more unified look from front to rear.

The hybrid version is powered by a combination of a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 155 hp and 136 lb.-ft. of torque and a nickel-metal hydride battery. The hybrid vehicles can operate up to 47 mph in pure electric mode, approximately twice as fast as some competitors. Plus, the city driving range on a single tank of gas is expected to be more than 700 miles.
