2013 Ford Flex EcoBoost Car Video & Crossover Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/flex/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford Flex is a crossover vehicle that has won the hearts of many owners out there. Part car, part van, and part station wagon; the Flex is full of surprises. Can any other station wagon haul seven people and all their gear with over 365 horsepower? There are 3 different trim levels starting with the SE which costs $30,885, the SEL which costs $33,225, up to the Limited EcoBoost AWD which costs $43,850.
There is quite a big gap there but the 3 different trims come in either FWD or AWD configurations. The SE and SEL are powered by a 3.5 Liter V-6 that pushes 285 horsepower while getting 18 MPG in the city and 25MPG on the highway. Step up to the twin-turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine with AWD will cost you a few miles per gallon (16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway), but you get 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque in return.
The 3rd row seating features a 50/50 split folding bench. The 2013 Ford Flex is quite versatile and there is a ton of cargo room with over 80 cubic feet of storage space. The doors are large enough to make entering and exiting the vehicle a breeze. There is a lot of legroom for adults. Also the Flex can be purchased with all the Ford technology available like Voice Activated Navigation to the SYNC in-car connectivity system.
On the outside there is no mistaking the 2013 Ford Flex with any old crossover or station wagon. The styling is bold and Ford took some risks with the interesting grille up front, chrome accents, and the grooved door panels that run down the side of the Flex. The two-tone paint gives the Flex a modern throw-back feel. The large 20-inch aluminum wheels make a visual statement. The 2013 Ford Flex is definitely one of the coolest crossover cruisers out there.

2015 Kia K900 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/k900/2015/?id=32972 Kia has been building cars
for over 20 years now. And during that time the brand has grown their
line-up of cars. What started as extremely affordable econo-boxes has
bloomed into mid-sized cars offered at a great value; and now we have the
K900 which pushes the perception of what a luxury car can be. The 2015 Kia
K900 has a base price of $59,500.
If Kia is going to be selling a luxury car, then said car must look the
part. On the outside the K900 has a stylish signature grille, adaptive
front projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch wheels.
Out back the K900 looks like a BMW. It is hard to sell a luxury car to
luxury car buyers without a potent power plant under the hood. The 2015 Kia
K900 is powered by Hyundai's TAO 5.0 liter V-8 GDI engine that makes 420 horsepower and 376
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the
On the inside, Kia has tried really hard to get the luxury part right. The
seats are incredibly comfortable and covered in soft Nappa leather. All the
touch points, materials, and dash layout all give the K900 a very upscale
feel and look which is important in order to get the buyers looking for an
Audi or Lexus. Finally Kia offers a level of technology that is not readily
available at this price point which sets the car apart from the rest of the
luxury car player.
Kia says the buyer of the K900 is looking for style, technology, luxury,
and value. Brand perception is up and hopefully the K900 can make a
positive impact for Kia.

active motion which give the front passengers a lower back and upper leg
message. These leather trimmed units have both a heating and cooling
mechanism built in. The push button start is a must for any technologically
advanced sedan. The instrument cluster features a speedometer in the middle
surrounded by a LCD screen on each side that is customizable to display the
information that is most important to the driver. Both the steering wheel
and the voice activated SYNC system can control the radio, phone,
navigation, climate controls, and more. The stereo system features 12
speakers located throughout the interior of the car and HD Radio is
standard on the SHO. All of the technology in the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO is

2013 Ford Taurus Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/taurus/2013/?id=32972 The Ford Taurus dates
all the way back to the 1986 model year. Over the past 25 years the Taurus
has had its ups and downs. When the Japanese mid-sized sedans starting
winning the sales war, Ford shifted their attention to SUVs. And the Taurus
was eventually discontinued being replaced at the mid-size level by the
Fusion and at the full-size level by the Ford 500. Well now the Taurus is
back and better than ever. The 6th generation debuted in 2010 and has now
received a refresh for the 2013 model year. There are 4 different trim
levels including the base SE which costs $26,600, the SEL which costs
$28,800, the Limited which costs $33,000, and the SHO which costs $39,200
and is reviewed elsewhere.
The 2013 Ford Taurus is a full-sized sedan that was given a mean and sharp
look that follows Ford's new design direction. Up front the grille,
projector headlights, and LED running lights really grab your attention.
The Taurus has a wide stance at over 76-inches which give this sedan a
comfortable ride. Out back the 2013 Ford Taurus features an integrated
spoiler on the trunk, and a chrome-tipped dual Exhaust system. Depending on the trim level
there are a couple of different wheel packages. The SE trim gets 17-inch
rims, the SEL trim gets 18-inch rims, and the Limited gets 19-inch rims.
There is an option to upgrade to large 20-inch polished aluminum wheels.
The 2013 Ford Taurus comes in both FWD and AWD configurations. There are 3
different engine to choose from. The base engine is a 3.5 liter V-6 that
makes 288 horsepower and 254 lb-ft. of
torque. This engine has a 6-speed automatic and gets 19 MPG in the city and
29 MPG on the highway. The second engine is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of
torque. This smaller displacement engine gets the best gas mileage at 22
MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. The top of the line engine is a
twin-turbo 3.5 liter found on the SHO
model. You can learn more about that engine by watching our review of the
Taurus SHO below.
On the inside the Taurus gives you a premium interior with lots of
technology and passenger amenities. The seats are high quality leather and
feature power adjustable controls with both heating and cooling option.
Even the rear seats have a heater function which is usually reserved for
vehicles in the high end luxury category. The 2013 Ford Taurus is packed
with many technological options like HD Radio, ambient lighting, Adaptive
Cruise Control, MyKey, SYNC, and MyFord Touch to name a few.

http://www.autobytel.com/ford/Mustang/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Ford
Mustang 5.0 GT continues
the heritage of the pony car in a big way. The base Mustang comes with a powerful V-6
engine while the GT gets the venerable 5.0 liter V-8 engine. The Mustang is a no non-sense muscle car
that combines everything from the old iconic car and combines it with
modern technology. The result is a great performing sports car that pays
homage to the Mustangs of
year gone by. The 2013 Ford Mustang base V-6 costs $22,200 while
the 5.0 GT Coupe starts at $30,300.
The 2013 Mustang GT is

The 2013 Ford Mustang
features a new front end that looks similar to the Shelby GT500 with its
aggressive front bumper and splitter that adds downforce. The hood features
functional heat extractors. The wheels are 18-inch painted aluminum pieces.
Out back the taillights have LEDs integrated in them which really pop at
night. On the inside the 2013 Ford Mustang GT also revisits some former
glory with a big dose of modern technology. Retro meets cool thanks to the
stylish gauges and the double dip dash. The Recaro seats hint at the true
sports car heritage underneath. These seats are comfortable and very
supportive. The aluminum accents give the Mustang some flair while the interior
lighting can be adjusted to fit your mood. The Shaker Audio System includes
a few subwoofers.
The 2013 Ford Mustang GT is
a car you can have a blast in. No longer is the Mustang a straight-line Muscle car,
instead it has morphed into a true sports car with a very affordable price
tag. You can order the 2013 Ford Mustang as a coupe or a convertible.
There is a great variety of extras, options, and packages to make your Mustang stand out from the

Back in 2009 the Ford Flex was the first car we reviewed when we rebooted

blown away by how good it was, does it still remain that way? And, can we
