January 20, 2012 – New York, NY – The distinct retro flair of the golden age of motorcycling is one that only Husqvarna can genuinely embody. The Husky marque is the definitive emblem of an era, and one that continues to symbolize bold innovation, classic design and timeless passion. Husqvarna’s distinctive 1970’s vibe is revisited in the Concept Baja – where vintage meets technology, and legendary style is redefined.

Vintage allure isn’t all this trek-touring design has to offer; performance is what makes the Concept Baja truly exceptional. Ideal for the casual rider as well as the committed enthusiast, The Baja will continue the trek well after the pavement ends.

Ford has been working on a new engine technology that will be offered in its 2011 F-150s next year that off-roaders will find interesting. It’s a cool concept that is being put to work – it involves the combination of both direct fuel injection and turbocharging in the rear-wheel-drive F-150. The EcoBoost engine options are offered in 4-cylinder and V6 options, and in early 2010 a V6 EcoBoost option will be available on the F-150. The F-150 will also be available with engine packages that include the 3.7-liter V6, 5.0-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8. As Ford notes, “This marks the most extensive engine makeover in the 62-year history of Ford F-Series.”
