This Rendering of a Ford Mustang Raptor has Fast and Furious Written All Over It

This Rendering of a Ford Mustang Raptor has Fast and Furious Written All Over It

It’s not for the weak of heart, that’s for sure

X-Tomi Design has released another rendering, this time of a Ford Raptor wearing the face — and body — of a Ford Mustang. It’s not a vehicle you’ll probably see in the real world anytime soon, but it’s good to know that there’s a way to look at the Raptor if Ford decided to use the Mustang as the canvas. Don’t start getting any ideas, though. A Ford Raptor with the face of a Mustang is not a good idea. The rendering itself is jarring; imagine what it could look like if it turned into a real model. Can’t picture it? We can’t blame you.

Ford Takes the Fun Out of Off-Roading with Trail Control for the 2019 Ford Raptor

Ford Takes the Fun Out of Off-Roading with Trail Control for the 2019 Ford Raptor

Do you really want a robot calling the shots out there?

Off-roading can be a lot of fun - from exploring the great outdoors, to finding the right line through a challenging bit of terrain, to extracting every ounce of capability from your vehicle, it’s just the right activity to get away from it all. Now, Ford hopes to make it more accessible with its new Trail Control system for the 2019 F-150 Raptor, which the company likens to “cruise control for off-road driving.” Color us skeptical.

If You're Considering the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST Line, You Might as Well Just Buy the Fiesta ST

If You’re Considering the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST Line, You Might as Well Just Buy the Fiesta ST

Ford is bidding farewell to all of its cars in the U.S. market, with the exception of the Mustang, and for one final hoorah, Ford is introducing the Fiesta ST Line to its 2019 model lineup to give buyers Fiesta ST looks without any power gains whatsoever. Seriously, folks, we can’t make this up. The Fiesta ST Line is, essentially, the Fiesta ST with the mundane 1.6-liter four-banger from the lesser models. Ford even claims to use the same front and rear clips on the car, making the only real difference the engine under the hood. To be more specific, Ford says “It’s for people who want the look of the ST but the don’t necessarily care about having that performance.”

Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor

Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor

Ford Ranger Raptor Is Cool, Well Executed Off Roaded

One thing is for certain. The new Ford Ranger Raptor is cool, capable, and off-road ready right from the production line, and it’s definitely an interesting proposition even for big-truck-loving Americans.

Sizewise, it is a truck similar to the Colorado ZR. “Characterwise,” it is a dune-fighting fun machine designed for the most intense off-roading tasks. While we in the U.S. are still waiting for Ford to confirm that the Ranger Raptor will come, the rest of the world is basking in the greatness of the potent truck. The thing is that the Ranger Raptor for the rest of the world is actually powered by a small diesel engine - not something that’s very popular here, is it?

While I am among those who believe the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. will get a 2.3-liter EcoBoost, I have to tell you a number of reasons why you should not be disappointed even if we end up with the diesel Ranger Raptor.

Ford Teases the 2020 Mach 1 SUV with a Very Mustang-Like Rear End

It’s not going to be called the Mach 1 anymore, and that’s a good thing

Ford has released the first teaser image of its Mustang-inspired electric crossover, giving us our first look at the controversial model. The teaser image shows the rear section of the crossover tucked in the shadows. We don’t see the whole thing, but the outline of the crossover is easy to make out, specifically its resemblance to the model that it’s supposed to be inspired by.

Is This the 2021 Ford Bronco II, aka “Baby Bronco?”

The familiar body lines might be hiding something else…

As Ford moves away from its line of sedans, it’s instead focusing (perhaps “concentrating” is a more appropriate word) much more heavily on its crossovers and trucks. As such, the Blue Oval has a swarm of fresh prototypes out on the road, like this recently spied compact crossover - leading us to ask, is this the new Baby Bronco?

The Ford Mustang is the Last Car Standing as Ford Cancels Chinese-Built Focus Active Over Trump’s Auto Tariffs

Ford decides to make the Focus in-Active in the U.S.

Trump vs. Jinping is not turning out well for importers in the U.S. The latest car manufacturer to bear this brunt is the Blue Oval. Ford has canceled its plan to sell the China-built Focus Active in the States, thanks to the high-tax imposition on products imported from China. The result of this is that the Focus nameplate will become extinct by the end of next year Stateside. This makes the Mustang the last car standing in the company’s line-up.

Will the big, bad ‘Stang ditch the third pedal?

The Mustang isn’t exactly known for cutting-edge, innovative technology. Hell, Ford’s most famous performance car just got independent rear suspension back in 2015 with its sixth generation. Now, it’s looking like the latest Shelby GT500 might take another step into the future by axing the manual transmission option outright.

As if the Ford GT isn’t awesome enough in its own right, Ford is adding to the supercar’s appeal with the launch of a new Heritage Edition showcase, one where the GT gets dressed up in the iconic light blue and orange Gulf Oil livery.

Switch from an exclusive platform to a modular one will get mixed reactions from the public

The next-generation Ford Mustang is expected to arrive in 2021 with a number of important changes, the most important of which is Ford’s plan to use one of its five new modular architectures to underpin the muscle car. The planned change means that the current Mustang’s exclusive rear-wheel-drive platform could be a thing of the past once the next-generation model rolls in.

Everything We Know about the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Are We in For The Best Muscle Car Ever?

While the last Shelby GT500 was a proper brute, the anticipation for the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 has become ever so stronger thanks to its biggest competitors. Ever since Dodge unveiled that bonkers Challenger Hellcat and Chevy showcased the Camaro ZL1, it was clear that the new Shelby GT500 will have to compete with them. An extremely powerful engine and the best possible tech that Ford has in its arsenal will end up complementing its sexy muscle car body.

While we are still months away from the 2019 Shelby GT500 unveiling, which will probably happen at the NAIAS in January, I found several interesting facts about the upcoming car to keep us more than entertained and excited about its upcoming reveal. So, without further ado, this is what we know about the new GT500 so far.

Ford Won’t Use the Mach 1 Name for an SUV; Tries to Play it Off as an "Evaluation."

It took a while for the company to realize it, but still, better late than never

Ford has backtracked off its plans to use the “Mach 1” name on a future electric crossover. The American automaker reportedly received considerable blowback from fans and customers — us, included — when it floated the idea a few months ago. And so, the former Mustang badge is back in the vault. Ford still plans to infuse the forthcoming crossover with the Mustang’s DNA, but the Mach 1 name appears to have been spared from all that.

Leaked Document: Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Will Have 710HP; Weigh 4,200 Lbs

It’s hard to make out these numbers without any substantiated confirmations from Ford

A leaked product sheet for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 reveals that the mighty muscle car will have a whopping output of 720 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the uptick in power, the product sheet also shows that the Shelby GT500 will 4,225 pounds, almost 300 hundred pounds heavier than its predecessor. The document looks skeptical, so even with these headline-grabbing numbers, it’s hard to trust what it says without any word from Ford itself.

The Ford Ranchero, America's Iconic Utility Coupe

The Ford Ranchero, America’s Iconic Utility Coupe

We take a closer look at Ford’s legendary car-based truck

Earlier this year, Ford announced that it will discontinue most of its cars in the U.S. to expand its crossover lineup. The company has already confirmed that it will revive the Bronco and that it will also offer a smaller, boxier SUV based on the Focus. Word has it that Ford is also planning to build a subcompact truck on the same underpinnings and it could be called the Ranchero.

If this happens, the iconic nameplate will return to the U.S. market after more than 40 years. There’s no official info as to when this will happen, but sources "familiar with Ford’s future product plan," as unveiled by Automobile Magazine in July 2018, said the truck could arrive as early as 2022, and that it could be produced in Mexico.

With the Ranchero likely to make a comeback soon, we decided to take a closer look at the iconic truck that was built between 1957 to 1979.

The world is in abundant supply of stupity

Thousands of miles away from Connecticut, a group of reckless and rude drivers came face-to-face with the long arm of the law after intentionally stopping traffic on the San Francisco Bay Bridge just so they could hoon and make donuts with their Ford Mustangs and Toyota Supras. It’s unclear exactly what their intentions are, but a good guess on their motives would involve words like “stupidity, carelessness, and all-around douchebaggery.”

2021 Ford Bronco II aka "Baby Bronco"

FoMoCo’s take on the Jeep Renegade

In March 2018, Ford unveiled its plans for the next two years, which includes many new models and a shift toward crossovers in the U.S. The bigger news includes dropping most cars in favor of SUVs, a hybrid version of the F-150 truck, and a revival of the iconic Bronco. The latter will be joined by a smaller sibling with similar boxy cues. A baby Bronco!

Described as a vehicle "designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends," the compact SUV was partially revealed in a teaser photo. And based on what we can see, it’s aimed directly at Jeep. Specifically, while the new-generation Bronco will go against the all-popular Wrangler, the smaller crossover will take on the Renegade. There’s no official name for it yet, and details remain a mystery, but it could roll out for the 2021 model year.

With Up To 800 Horsepower And A Number Of Awesome Bullitt Inspired Additions

After appearing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new Ford Mustang Bullitt, as well as the original (who left the U.S. first time ever for its stint at Goodwood) left a mark on the gearheads of the world. Particularly those in the U.S. No wonder that the tuning company Steeda, already well known for its Mustang projects, partnered with Galpin Auto Sports and McQueen Racing to deliver the most amazing Mustang Bullitt. This is the Ford Mustang Bullitt by Steeda - it can be a 500 horsepower N/A beast, an 800 horsepower Hellcat killer, or a track-worthy toy with a roll cage. Steeda offered a comprehensive tuning package for the Mustang Bullitt. However, it seems that it only added subtle exterior additions nearing the latest Mustang to its movie star grandfather more than Ford has ever done before.

Here's Everything We Know About the New Ford Bronco

Here’s Everything We Know About the New Ford Bronco

We Think We Know A Lot

I read a lot of Bronco stuff in my research for this article and let me tell you right away that we are in for the ride of our lives. Ford has some balls and, if we are lucky, it will probably give us just what we wanted - a retro looking 2020 Ford Bronco with live axles, three doors, a cool “no-roof” mechanism, a modern engine, and a freaking spare tire slapped at the back. A gazillion rumors have surfaced over the past few years about the new Bronco, but the last teaser picture revealed a lot.

The Bronco always was a cool vehicle. All the way from 1966, but it wasn’t until that OJ Simpson situation that it reached the status of an automotive icon like no other. Interestingly enough, we’ve had to wait a quarter of a century for Ford to reveal an all-new Bronco, a vehicle that will be a staple of American off-roading culture and the first one in a long time to attack the likes of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

This is what we know about the 2020 Ford Bronco.

2019 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

2019 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

The quickest and most powerful yet!

The Mustang Cobra Jet is now known as Ford’s factory-built drag racer, but the "Cobra Jet" badge was actually created for a 7.0-liter V-8 engine back in 1968. This is also the year when the Blue Oval produced 50 lightweight Mustangs for the said engine and shipped six of them to Holman Moody and Bill Stroppe to be prepared for NHRA racing. Fifty years later and Ford is celebrating the event with a special-edition Cobra Jet model.

The first Mustang-based drag racer since 2016, this Cobra Jet comes with all the goodies you’d expect to find on such car. There’s a revised body that looks similar to the facelifted sixth-gen model, skinny wheels up front and fat tires to the rear, a competition-spec interior, and a massively supercharged V-8. Making things even better, it’s the quickest and most powerful Mustang that Ford has developed specifically for drag racing in history.
