Ford

You could look all the way back to 1901 and find the Ford name on an automotive company – it was then that Henry Ford launched the Henry Ford Company that became Cadillac less than a year later. In 1903, the Ford Motor Company was launched, and it was, ironically, funded by John and Horace Dodge – the two that eventually started Dodge. While this is a little strange, the Ford Motor Company has survived more than 100 years and is, as of 2015, the fifth largest automaker in the world. Ford is based out of Dearborn Michigan and sells a variety of models from the performance-oriented Mustang and GT to a long list of SUVs and Pickups. The cheapest new Ford available today is the $14,260 Fiesta, while the Ford GT comes in at the most expensive, commanding close to, if not more than $500,000.

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

Ford might be cooking up a new mid-engined car, and that means the C8 Corvette could be in danger

Ford versus Chevrolet is one of the most epic automotive rivalries we’ve come to witness. You’re probably familiar with the Mustang vs Camaro, or F-Series vs Silverado rivalries, but now an even older Ford vs Chevy rivalry could be resurrected. The mid-engine C8 Corvette is currently GM’s pride and joy and Ford doesn’t have anything to compete against it. At least not at this price range, as the Ford GT is way more expensive and produced in much lower numbers. However, it seems this might change very soon, as the Blue Oval was spotted testing a C8 on their home turf, in Dearborn.

Ford’s revival of old monikers continues. After bringing back the Bronco last year and resurrecting the ‘Lightning’ nameplate for the recently-unveiled electric F-150, Ford has now filed the ‘Splash’ name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
