This Supercharged Lowrider ’68 F-100 Is Absolutely Droolworthy
The world can never have enough lowrider trucks, especially if they’re vintage and are customized tastefully. Autotopia recently covered a customized 1968 F-100 that looks great and features a Mustang V-8 crate engine. The truck was originally a magazine project for Classic Trucks, but went on sale last year and was purchased at an auction by the current owner. Looks neat, doesn’t it?
Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved
Remember back when Ford thought it was a good idea to slap the iconic Mach 1 name on an EV SUV? Well, it didn’t go out so well and people only stopped short of rioting in the streets, eventually prompting Ford to back pedal and switch to the name Mach E instead. The name wasn’t much better and is still referred to by some as disgracing what the Mach name stood for, but things have pretty much settled down into acceptance. But, is this really the electric Mustang that we deserved? Well, after seeing this rendering, we’re willing to bet you’ll say we deserved better.
Do You Remember The "OG" Ford F-150 SVT Lightning?
Back in the day, automakers like Dodge, Chevy, and GMC, tried to develop pickup trucks that were more than their towing and payload prowess. They came up with performance versions of their respective trucks, but could not break this perception people had about trucks and failed to create a niche. Ford, too, threw its hat into the ring with a product called the Lightning. The Lightning stayed around for a decade before going down the same way as its counterparts. But, does that mean it was a bad truck? No, sir!
With the moniker being resurrected again, we thought it would be a good time to remember the original truck and tell you everything you need to know before Ford blankets its legacy with its first electric truck with the same name.
Ford To Resurrect The ’Lightning’ Moniker On The Upcoming Electric F-150
Ford launched two new vehicles in the last couple of years, but we noticed patterns when it came to naming them. One is to revive an old moniker from the ashes – the Bronco – and the other one is to attach the legacy of a loved badge on its electric vehicle –the Mustang Mach-E. For its next EV, which is arguably the most important product for the Blue Oval and will pave the way for its future, the company has combined both these patterns. We’re talking about the upcoming electric F-150, which the company could call ‘Lightning’.

The Supercharged Ford F-150 Raptor R Sounds Mean
The world is waiting to hear about the upcoming Ford F-150 Raptor R after Ford announced it at the standard third-gen Raptor’s debut. It was only a matter of time before we would get glimpses of it, and that time has come. A video clip of the truck was uploaded to YouTube and you can see it in flesh wrapped in camouflage. While Ford managed to hide the design elements to an extent, they couldn’t keep the beast silent. You can hear the supercharged beast grunting here, and even at idle, it sounds so good. Can you at least release some audio clips of it, for the time being, Ford?
This is the Chinese Market Ford EVOS And, Probably, The Fusion In America and the Mondeo in Europe
The 2021 Auto Shanghai revealed many interesting studies, among which the Ford EVOS. There has been a steadily increasing trend of sedan models, becoming crossovers and SUVs. Although the EVOS looks like a blend of a station wagon and an SUV, it is believed that this will be the next Ford Fusion (in the US) and Ford Mondeo (Europe). The EVOS is the first Ford product, largely developed by the brand’s team in China.

The Ford Thunder - Everything You Didn’t Know And Why You’ve Never Heard Of It
Before the Ford Raptor stole the show, as Ford’s go-to performance pick-up truck, there was the Ford F150 SVT Lightning. The first-generation SVT Lightning came in 1993 and inspired other manufacturers to build their own performance pick-up trucks. In 1999, the second generation Lightning came and this is where things get interesting. At the time of the second-generation F-150 Lightning, SVT (Special Vehicles Team) worked on an SUV version of the pick-up truck. It was the Ford SVT Thunder Expedition. Sadly, it never made it to production, but that doesn’t stop us from telling you all we know about it.
Dodge Durango Hellcat Takes On A Shelby GT500 - Does AWD Give the SUV an Edge?
Hennessey Performance had two new visitors at its facility, both of which came to be tuned up to around 1,000 horses. One was a family SUV with a sports car alter ego called the Dodge Durango Hellcat, and the other one was a two-door, rear-wheel-drive sports car from Shelby called the GT500. Both makoverof 700 horses and took under four seconds to 60 mph from rest. These are the stock specs, in case you were wondering. So, before they were injected with steroids, the folks at Hennessey decided to race the two of them because, well, why not! Who do you think will win?
The Original Ford Mustang Could Have Looked A Bit Different
Can Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Take Down a Ford GT Carbon Series?
When it comes to beefed-up Mustangs, no pony compares to Ken Block’s Hoonicorn. Sure, he uses the heavily modified 1965 Mustang for a lot of drifting, but it’s insanely powerful and, as a result, insanely fast too. How fast? Well, it can put a Ford GT Carbon Edition supercar to shame.
Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.
