其實早在2015年、Ford就已經與Costco好市多，共同在國內開創美式賣場銷售新車（Ford Kuga）的先例！而在經過將近6年後的今天，Ford再次進駐全台Costco好市多賣場，自即日起至2021年3月18日為止，推出「Ford Ranger黑甲騎兵特仕版」美式皮卡，獨家於全台Costco好市多賣場發售，限時限量40部獨家配額，並提供會員專屬優惠價，更多詳情請洽全台Costco好市多賣場。
重點來說，在全台各家Costco好市多獨家發售的「Ford Ranger黑甲騎兵特仕版」，是以Ford Ranger職人型為基礎，導入專屬黑甲騎兵限定元素（包含Ford黑甲個性水箱護罩、4X4車側貼紙），並搭配5款個性車色（雷霆藍／洗鍊黑／硬漢灰／極地白／星燦銀）。
另外，Ford Ranger黑甲騎兵特仕版的車身，還配置同色金屬頭立式格柵貨架、四對車斗綑綁繩固定勾、六處車斗固定扣環，能輔助綑綁固定承載之貨物，切合貨物及工具載運的需求。內裝部分，則配置中文化儀錶資訊介面，並升級搭載原廠8吋全彩觸控螢幕，內建SYNC 2.5娛樂通訊整合系統，支援Apple CarPlay與Android Auto智慧型手機連結功能。
至於國人相當重視的安全系統，Ford Ranger黑甲騎兵特仕版也已標配Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology全方位智駕領航科技！提供包含AEB全速域輔助煞停系統、AHB自動遠光燈、LDW車道偏移警示系統、LKA車道偏移輔助系統、倒車雷達與倒車輔助系統…等，對於傳統印象中較顯粗獷的皮卡車型來說，已算是相當全面的安全防護效能。
Land Rover launched the new Defender V8 a couple of weeks ago, and it is already said to be working on a hardcore variant of the off-roader.
This new version is tipped to come from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations unit and while stopping short of confirming the model, SVO boss Michael van der Sande told Car Sales that the new Defender V8 doesn’t carry any SV badging because it doesn’t have the right “amount of technical changes you would expect of an SV product.”
JLR purchased Bowler last year in what van der Sande described as a “very intentional” move as the automaker was “slightly underrepresented in performance off-roading.” Thanks to Bowler’s expertise with making the Defender even more capable off the beaten path, JLR is now in the perfect position to capitalize on the growing demand for performance off-roaders.

“We have a strategy of remaining faithful to the underlying character for the vehicle we’re developing,” van der Sande said. “That’s really important to me. When you just add sport to the car you’re working on – sometimes you end up with a really good car, sometimes you end up with a really incoherent car that doesn’t quite know what it is.”
The British company has yet to confirm what direction it will take with the off-roader, but it could take inspiration from the Discovery SVX concept that was unveiled in 2017. That vehicle was outfitted with long-travel dampers, enlarged off-road tires, increased ride height and wheel articulation, and a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 pumping out 493 hp and 461 lb-ft (625 Nm) of torque.
Jaguar Land Rover intended to bring the Defender SVX into production, but van der Sande has since revealed that he and SVO chief engineer Jamal Hameedi scrapped the project as they had too much on their plate at the time and needed to scale back SVO’s activities.
Tesla is expanding its Full Self-Driving beta as it looks to ramp up the development of the advanced driver-assistance system.
The electric car manufacturer introduced the Full Self-Driving beta in October to select owners participating in its Early Access Program. In total, there have been about 1,000 vehicles participating in the beta and despite what the name of the system may suggest, drivers are expected to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.

Taking to Twitter late last week, Elon Musk said the company is doubling the size of the beta program with its latest software release and will grow the beta in size by 10 times with a further update. Musk added that due to high levels of demand for the system, the car manufacturer will add a ‘Download Beta’ button to the Service section of its vehicle displays in approximately 10 days.

“Still be careful, but it’s getting mature,” Musk added in his tweet. He also explained that the term ‘beta’ is used by Tesla “to reduce complacency in usage and set expectations appropriately. All software is first tested by Tesla simulation and QA drive teams.”
Musk also confirmed that the availability of the Full Self-Driving beta will vary by region due to regulatory approval delays and Tesla’s internal development and testing.
Those wanting to get access to the beta can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, the service the carmaker uses to coordinate the program.
