Ford has made its name on innovation and cutting-edge technology.
Now the company is in a unique position to help reinvent itself.
It’s an industry in flux, where companies are scrambling to stay ahead of a rapidly changing landscape.
Ford’s role is to help guide Ford as the car company it has always been: a leader in new technologies, and one that can help its engineers, suppliers and customers learn, grow and adapt.
“We’re not going to be there forever,” said John Flanagan, a former president of Ford who retired last year after nearly two decades with the company.
“But we’re very much in the middle of the transition.
I think we have to be a catalyst.
I’m very confident that we will have a successful transition to a 21st century economy.”
Ford’s biggest innovations over the past half-century have come in the engine and transmissions.
Ford has introduced several innovations in the last decade, including the F-150, the F250 and the EcoBoost, all of which are now among the most powerful pickups in the world.
The F-350, meanwhile, is one of Ford’s most innovative cars.
But the most dramatic changes have come with the engine.
“The most recent innovation in the engines is the F150,” Flanagan said.
“That’s not a small innovation.
It has a very big impact.”
Ford introduced the F50 in 2011, and the F350 in 2014.
The company has introduced dozens of engines since then, including turbocharged versions of the F30 and F50.
The turbocharged engines are known as EcoBoosts, and they are designed to offer more power and efficiency, while also improving fuel economy.
Ford is now rolling out the F100, a new turbocharged version of the company’s iconic pony car, the Shelby GT500.
It is scheduled to be launched in 2021.
“You have to look at it as a continuation of that technology that’s been built into the F40 and F45, the four-door F-Series, the Expedition and the Escape,” Flanagans former boss, Bill Ford, said.
But even with its best-known engines, Ford has a wide range of technologies in the works.
It plans to bring the F200 back to the U.S. next year, and is developing a new platform for the F700 pickup.
Ford also announced the addition of a new vehicle to the lineup, the Ford Escape, to help fill the void left by the end of Ford Explorer production.
Ford plans to release a full-size version of its all-electric pickup in 2021, with a range of more than 400 miles, and plans to unveil the electric F350 at the Detroit auto show.
But Ford is also making headway on other new products, including a new truck that will hit the market by the year 2021.
The new model will be called the Expedition, and it will be powered by the F180, a large, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that is a long way from the F90.
The Escape will be a hybrid version of a small pickup truck that Ford already made.
It will use the F170 engine and the same powertrain found in the Expedition.
It’ll be available in 2021 for $31,000.
“This is a big one,” said Flanagan.
“It’s going to make the Expedition a really good truck, but it’s going, I think, to be the first electric truck that people actually think about buying.”
Flanagan is now the chief executive officer of Ford Enterprise, a private equity firm focused on global manufacturing and supply chains.
He will be joining the board of directors of the Ford Foundation, a philanthropic organization that supports entrepreneurial growth in the automotive industry.
Ford executives, including Ford’s top executives, have already traveled to China to promote the new Expedition.
“There’s a tremendous amount of enthusiasm, and a tremendous level of interest in it from the Chinese,” Flanaghan said.
The Expedition is a new concept car that will be launched this year, but the company hasn’t released any information about the size and price of the new car.
Ford Enterprise also plans to launch the F1, a small, electric version of Ford Focus that will use a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Flanagan expects the new F1 to have a range that’s around 400 miles on a charge, with its first commercial customer being a private investment fund called the National Venture Fund.
The Ford Foundation is also working on a small electric truck called the F2, which will be built by a company called Plug In America.
The foundation is also building a $300 million factory to produce the F8 electric pickup.
And Flanagan says the foundation is looking into a potential partnership with a truck manufacturer.
“I think there’s a great deal of opportunity there for us to be in a position to support a potential future
