  •  RNLI transport needs on land to be fulfilled by over 450 new Fords over three years
  • Rugged and durable Ford Ranger is RNLI’s pick-up of choice for lifeguard beach patrols
  • Transit vans including Custom hybrid, plus EcoSport and Kuga cars, also join RNLI’s fleet
  • Ford to support RNLI water safety messaging

Ford is pushing the boat out for the RNLI by supplying the charity that saves lives at sea with a replacement fleet of new vehicles.
Ford will ship 210 new vehicles to the RNLI this year, followed by a further 120 in 2020 and again in 2021 – including 100 Ford Rangers total as beach patrol vehicles for its lifeguard service.
Andy Barratt, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, said: “Ford as UK vehicle market leader partnering one of this country’s national treasures is a real coup for us. The RNLI does an outstanding job keeping us safe around the coast, which we’re excited to be supporting.”

Ford takes its social responsibility as an industry leader, employer and charity supporter seriously. Ford will be collaborating with the RNLI on water safety messages to raise public awareness of risks around the water to help people enjoy coastal and inland waterways more safely.

The 2019 fleet of RNLI Fords will include 10 Fiesta, 10 EcoSport, 80 Focus, 10 Kuga, 80 Transit, Transit Connect and Transit Customs plus the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), as well as 20 four-wheel-drive Rangers to be deployed on beach patrols.
Last year vehicles from eight manufacturers were tested by the RNLI in all conditions to ensure the life-saving charity had transport it can depend on, suitable for both the beach and inland.
“The Ford Ranger pick-up is a vehicle we are immensely proud of and we are thrilled that the RNLI also believes it is best suited to its tough demands,” said Andy Barratt.

Nick Saunders, RNLI senior procurement manager, said: “We’re delighted that Ford is able to supply vehicles so well-suited to carrying out our life-saving work. The RNLI is excited to be working with such an iconic brand in a relationship that goes beyond supplier status.”
A Ford Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) will be used in Poole and the Dorset area to test the suitability of the electric/petrol hybrid for the RNLI’s needs, helping to reduce the.

RNLI’s carbon footprint and contribute to cleaner air quality. The RNLI becomes Ford’s 10th fleet partner testing Transit Custom PHEV prototypes in real-world, everyday applications ahead of the vehicle going on sale later this year.

About the RNLI

The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,400 lives.

EcoBoost engine information

Ford UK is making an announcement today to benefit any customers of vehicles with the 1.0L EcoBoost that have been the subject of engine overheating.

Despite actions taken by Ford in 2015 on affected vehicles built between Oct 2011 to Oct 2013 to mitigate engine overheating, there have been ongoing concerns from some owners, where repairs and/or engine replacements have been undertaken. To put this into context, this has been 0.35% of the number of vehicles sold in the UK with the EcoBoost engine.

Ford UK has made substantial contributions to the cost of repairs to those affected already. However, we have not covered 100% of costs in all cases. We have listened to customer feedback and have decided to go further. Today’s announcement is that Ford UK will pay 100% of the cost of repair of engine overheating related concerns in 1.0L EcoBoost engines at a Ford dealer. We will re-examine previous cases to ensure that this policy of a 100% contribution to the repair cost is applied consistently; in full and final settlement, subject to case assessment.

In the first instance, customers, who have been directly affected (only), should send a simple e-mail to The automated reply will provide guidance on next steps. It will take time to re-examine previous cases, but we will respond to all customers.

All – New Focus … all you need to know

The All – New Focus



For the full line up of the All-New Focus click here.


Technology with purpose

The All-New Focus is built to improve your driving experience in every way. This next generation car is packed with advanced features like Ford Co-Pilot360, an impressive set of Driver Assist Technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go and Lane Centring, and Active Park Assist 2. Together, these smart technologies can help manage acceleration, braking, and even steering. It’s technology that’s so effortless and useful, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.




Comfortable and connected

Clean lines, a sleek layout and sophisticated look. The interior of All-New Focus is more comfortable, spacious and modern than ever before. And now, you and your car can stay connected wherever you are. The optional new FordPass Connect modem brings you a range of invaluable features such as Live Traffic, Wi-Fi hotspot and eCall. Download the FordPass App on your smartphone and you can access even more FordPass Connect features. For example, remote locking & unlocking, remote starting (auto transmission only), vehicle location, vehicle health status and live traffic updates for SYNC 3. For more information on FordPass and FordPass Connect click here.






The power you want and the efficiency you need

The All-New Focus is available with a range of powerful and highly fuel-efficient engines, all complemented by 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmissions. The exterior design has also been sculpted to create a shape that’s both athletic and aerodynamic, whilst helping to improve efficiency even further.




Your safety. Our priority.

A series of smart technologies are designed to protect you, your family, and other road users. For example, Active Braking and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection can warn you of potential collisions and even apply the brakes automatically if you don’t react in time.





Room for everything

The brand new interior makes full use of every square millimetre of its space to give you the most versatile Focus ever. There’s generous head, leg and elbow room at the front and back of the vehicle, so even your tallest passengers will feel comfortable. The rear seats split 60/40 and can fold almost completely flat to maximise space for your luggage. And there’s an adjustable load floor in the boot, which can be raised to give you a hidden storage compartment, or lowered to increase space.
