The Ford Everest Concept isn’t earmarked for the U.S., but that doesn’t mean it needs to be completely ignored. On the contrary, the Everest Concept deserves it place on this page, in part because it showcases what Ford says is the future styling direction of of its midsize, seven-seat SUV for the ASEAN and global markets.

That’s pretty big news considering how much Ford has invested in a region that’s only becoming more and more important to the company’s bottom line.

The Everest Concept builds on the tradition of the SUV that has proudly carried its name for years. It’s got all the unmistakable Ford design characteristics that perfectly highlights how the company has managed to combine style, function, and all-around toughness into one package.

A vehicle like the Ford Everest Concept not only strengthens Ford’s utility offerings in the region, but it also marks as a testament to the commitment the Blue Oval has made to becoming a major player in a market that’s only going to get bigger and better in the years to come.

Since it first hit the market, the Ford Mustang has been one of the “go-to” vehicles for great movie cars. From Bullitt all the way to this year’s Need for Speed movie, this pony is the king of the silver screen. One of the most memorable Mustangs to entrance theater goers was Eleanor in the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds. The Eleanor from the film was a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 , but many modern remakes of that classic machine now roam the road. If you want a modern “Eleanor” GT500 , I know just the place to get one; RK Motors in Charlotte, North Carolina.

This particular Mustang is a 2007 model with a host of visual and performance upgrades. From the supercharged V-8 dumping almost 500 horsepower towards those rear wheels to the shimmer of that Satin Silver paint, this is one machine you don’t want to miss.

With Gymkhana Six already online for a few months now, drift king Ken Block is gearing up for a full racing season.

His 2014 schedule will include events from the Global RallyCross, World RallyCross and the World Rally Championship and, since a new season requires a new car, the Long Beach-born driver got an updated Ford Fiesta to hoon around the globe.

Although Hoonigan Racing dropped the skateboard- and powerboat-inspired graphics for 2014, the blue and black color scheme that was introduced last year continues to adorn the souped-up Fiesta ST . However, the new livery is as original as it gets, now blending a zebra-like animal pattern and retro 8-bit computer graphics.

Granted, it’s an awkward recipe, but it’s Ken Block we’re talking about here. You won’t see him drifting a dull-liveried car — the 2014 Volkswagen Polo R WRC comes to mind — anytime soon.

"Every year I’m challenged with outdoing my livery from the season before," Block said while taking the wraps off the new race car, and we must admit he succeeded.

Block’s first Global RallyCross Championship appearance in 2014 will take place during the Barbados season opener on May 18th.

None of us, with exception of Ford , know what is really going on with the Shelby GT500 Mustang . The consensus says that Ford will replace the Shelby name starting with the next-gen Mustang and likely replace it with a revived Cobra model.

Well, regardless of what Ford does with the range-topping Mustang in the next generation, it is obvious that its engineers are working on something hot. In the above video you see a lucky man that so happened upon a next-gen Mustang on public roads with a rather throaty engine note. The assumption is — and I agree — that this is a hopped-up variant of the Mustang and likely the Shelby GT500/SVT Cobra or whatever Ford chooses to name it.

Could this simply be a tester for the 2015 Mustang GT? Sure, it could be, but that would be one hell of an exhaust note for a GT Mustang, and that quad-exhaust system simply doesn’t strike me as something Ford would put on the Mustang GT.

Regardless of what version of the Mustang this is, we do love seeing spy videos of the new `Stang.

Let us know what you think we are looking at in this video in the comments below.


When Ford revealed the Mustang on December 5th, 2014, it took what it has built in recent years and did the impossible: make it better. The new, European styling is not as over-the-top as I feared it may be and it only added to the model’s outstanding legacy.

Well, now we all get to drool over the topless version, which is sure to ruin the lives of toupee wearers around the globe.

The details are still not complete on the 2015 Mustang Convertible, much like its coupe brother, but we are able to piece things together using the details from the coupe, the limited information on the convertible and the few image that Ford released.

One thing is for sure; Ford did a good job in designing the convertible Mustang separate from the coupe, giving them distinct appearances that reminds me of the Fox Body years.

The 2015 Ford Mustang to Star in "Need for Speed"

The 2015 Ford Mustang has drummed up plenty of interest, with its European design and independent rear suspension. Its starring role in the upcoming "Need For Speed" movie simply added fuel to the fire.

Now the upcoming Stang is set to hit the front page again, as the earlier-mentioned role in "Need For Speed" is prepared to cross the auction block. And this is no normal Mustang, as it comes with a custom wide-body kit, a set of Forgiato 22-inch alloy wheels, an enlarged grille with revised air intakes, rocker-panel extensions, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. Add in its silver paint with Kona Blue racing stripes, and you can see that this truly is a one-of-a-kind Mustang.

To my knowledge, there are no engine mods, but given this beast packs at least 420 horsepower, then no mods are really necessary.

This custom Mustang will roll across the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction on April 12th, 2014. The car will be sold with no reserve and all of the proceeds will benefit the Henry Ford Health System.

The Ford Focus RS is one of the most impressive sports hatchback in the European market. And if you were impressed by the current generation, wait until Ford unveils the new generation Focus RS in 2015. According to the British magazine TopGear, the soon-to-be-launched Focus RS is fixing to go down as the most impressive RS ever, delivering a total output of 320 horsepower — a 20-horsepower increase over the current 300-horsepower model.

The current Focus RS is powered by a 2.5-liter five-cylinder, but for the next generation Ford will replace it with a new 2.3-liter four, with turbo, direct injection and balance shafts. Incidentally, this is the same engine that will be used for the Mustang starting in 2014, although for the RS, it will be updated to deliver more power.

The next RS will also be equipped with a RevoKnuckle front suspension and big brakes, but most importantly it will be a five-door model and not a three-door version like the one currently in the market. About the only potential downside is that Ford will not offer a 4WD system because this will add too much weight for an RS.

Updated 02/24/2014: Swedish magazine Auto Motor Sport reports that the new generation Focus RS will be powered by an updated version of the new 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine used in the Mustang, with the output increased to about 330 horsepower - which represents a 30 horsepower increase over the previous generation.

With three years on its ticker, the Focus is ripe for a mid-cycle refresh, and our spy shooters caught a few of these revised Foci out for a testing session. This time around, the Focus sedan and hatchback were caught on ice in Sweden, and the sedan version gave us a nice glimpse of the grille and taillights.

From these little sneak peeks, we can see that the taillights and grille will be revised, and this leads us to assume that the headlights will undergo a pretty significant overhaul too. In fact, this revision is one of the biggest I’ve seen in a while that was not a full overhaul. Leaked images and rumors point toward the typical Aston Martin -like grill, more rounded headlights, a smoother hood and revised bumpers.

Under its hood, the revised Focus will carry over its entire engine lineup and inherit the new 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine that should put down around 100 horsepower. Keep it locked in on TopSpeed.com for more details.

Ford has pulled the covers off its newest, full-size, and only body-on-frame SUV today, the 2015 Ford Expedition. Still in its third generation, the Expedition gets a much-needed makeover that includes many of the designs and features its cousin, the Lincoln Navigator received just months prior.

Much has changed to better the Expedition and help with fuel economy and drivability, but much remains the same or carryover from the previous year. The biggest news under its resculpted hood is the addition of Ford’s bread-n-butter 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Gone is the old 5.4-liter Triton V-8, leaving the EcoBoost as the Expedition’s only powerplant. Both the standard and EL, or extended length versions return with seating for five and eight passengers in high-riding comfort.

Speaking of comfort, Ford is bringing its popular, top-of-the-line Platinum series to the Expedition. The trim level ranks above the western-style King Ranch that previously held the top spot. Like the F-150s, the Platinum series will focus more on modern luxury with a clean, non-themed design aimed at more the ‘city folk’ type. MyFord Touch, SYNC, push-button start, blind sport warning, and even the F-150’s “Truck Apps” will be available.

Also new is Ford’s first-ever attempt at a continuously controlled damping suspension system. It features three driver-selectable drive modes that tailor the ride style to changing conditions. It’s designed to manage body motion, steering feedback, and unevenness in the road. Helping the system out is Ford’s new electric power-assisted steering. That system is said to improve maneuverability at low speeds and provide more feel at higher speeds. It will ever automatically compensate for heavy cross winds and road crowns.

Nearly every car enthusiast knows that the Ford Mustang was released on April 17th, 1964, but what if I told you that the first Mustang was actually sold on the 15th. Even more surprising is the fact that this was not special treatment given to some big celebrity at the time. That’s right, folks, Gail Wise — a 22-year-old school teacher at the time — bought the first ever Mustang two days before its release.

She came across this $3,400, Skylight Blue Mustang when she went to a dealer to buy a convertible , but the dealer was fresh out of drop-top models, except the Mustang in question. When the dealer took her into a back room to see the `Stang , she borrowed enough money from her parents to buy it on the spot. The date: April 15th, 1964 — two days before the pony car made its debut at the World’s Fair.

The car ran into issues in 1979, and Gail’s husband parked it in the garage until the early 2000s, despite his wife’s pleas to sell the car.

I don’t want to spoil the entire video for you, so I’ll stop here and let you check it out for yourself. It is an inspiring and interesting story.
