With improved safety, a quieter ride, improved handling and luxury craftsmanship, Ford is focused on putting quality first by designing and building vehicles that are more connected, help prevent accidents, help protect occupants and are more fuel efficient and better for the environment. Ford has made significant steps to improve quality through an ongoing commitment that touches every aspect of the vehicle process – from design to manufacturing to product launch. With a number of award winning products, it's not hard to see that quality is a priority at Ford.
Ford is extremely proud of its achievements, recognised by the various awards and accolades received across its vehicle range. This is a reflection of the high level of quality in the design, engineering and performance of its award winning vehicles. Recognition of Ford vehicles crosses all markets and various awards have been received in Europe, America and Asia Pacific and Africa.
Ford is committed to developing new safety technologies and continues to work tirelessly to design new ways to keep customers safer in its vehicles. An example of Ford's commitment to improved safety was seen when the FG Falcon* became the first Australian-built car to receive a five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) in 2008.
Safety technologies include both active safety, designed with the aim of preventing an accident from occurring, as well as passive safety to keep you protected if an accident should occur.
Ford is at the forefront of vehicle design with Ford Kinetic Design leading the way across Ford's current and future portfolio of vehicles.
In 2004, Martin Smith, the Executive Design Director for Ford of Europe, was challenged with the task of forming a new design language for Ford. This was a defining moment in Ford's recent history, which resulted in a new design philosophy for the company.
Martin Smith defines Ford Kinetic Design as, “the form language is communicated through bold, dynamic lines and full surfaces. When you look at Kinetic Design, you can see that it visualises energy in motion.” It's this ‘energy in motion' that expresses the design language. That's why with just a glimpse, the cars look like they're moving even when they're standing still.
The first iteration of Ford Kinetic Design was the SAV concept car in 2005 and this was ultimately transformed into the S-MAX, a model on-sale in Europe. Since then, the new design language has also influenced Galaxy*, Mondeo, Kuga*, Focus, new Fiesta and most recently the new Ka*. Once again, Martin Smith perfectly summarises the vision for Ford Kinetic Design, “We want to build cars that evoke an instant emotional response of ‘I want one'.” This vision has gone from concept to a stunning reality.
The design team have heralded a new direction, not just for Ford but within the industry as a whole. The ultimate aim is to achieve design leadership and clearly, Ford Kinetic Design will continue to develop and advance. As for the future, Martin Smith is clear about his intentions, “Although the iosis-MAX isn't a forerunner to a specific production vehicle, it clearly highlights how Kinetic Design is evolving and can be applied with stunning results to all vehicles in the Ford portfolio.”
