Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT
When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.
The Maverick Is So Popular, Ford Had To Suspend Orders For It
After Losing To The Fusion, The Ford Mustang Now Gets Laughed Out Of The Room By A VW Jetta!
Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ uploaded yet another video of a drag race on YouTube, this time involving a Volkswagen Jetta and a Ford Mustang. Remember how the Mustang lost to the Fusion a few days back? Well, it seemed like retribution of sorts for the Mustang, but it didn’t go how the muscle car would’ve liked.
While both of them feature a four-pot turbocharged engine under the hood, the Mustang makes over 100 horsepower more than the Jetta. Also, the American muscle is a rear-wheel-drive model whereas the German sedan comes with a front-wheel-drive system. Despite everything going in favor of the Mustang, it lost to the Jetta when it came to real-world performance. Shocking, huh?
2022 Ford Bronco Raptor
Ford forayed into the off-roading scene with the Bronco in 2020 as a challenger to the Wrangler. Now, it’s not like this was the first off-roader from the company, but it sure was one without the Raptor badge. A few hardcore enthusiasts would’ve already predicted a Bronco Raptor back then itself, and they must be grinning today to see their prediction come true.
The Blue Oval has made the inevitable happen 18 months after the Bronco was launched by including it in the Raptor family. It was officially announced a few months back, and it is now finally here. The Bronco Raptor debuts with a 3.0-liter V-6 that will put out around 400 horses, an upgraded suspension setup and off-road gear, and a price tag of around $70,000.
Watch A Ford Fusion Make An Absolute Mockery Of The Ford Mustang!
Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ brought two Ford products to the drag strip for an intra-family drag race. One of them is the Mustang, and the other, the Fusion. At the onset, you would expect the Mustang to be the winner. But, as it turns out, the Fusion’s got enough oomph to beat the muscle car and hurt its ego. Oh, boy!
Watch A Ford Mustang Mach 1 Try To Cha-Cha-Cha With A Porsche Cayman GT4 And A 718
The ‘Carwow’ team created a nice ensemble of three cars with very different dynamics. First up, there’s the Porsche Cayman GT4 that features a naturally aspirated flat-six and a manual gearbox. Then there’s a Cayman 718 with a smaller turbocharged four-cylinder mill, but paired to an automatic gearbox. And, then there’s a powerful naturally-but-heavy aspirated V-8 from the Ford Mustang Mach 1, also with a manual gearbox. Which car do you think has the higher chances of winning here?

A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works
The Ranger Raptor has been a forbidden fruit in the U.S. for the longest time. There are hushed talks that it will be coming here soon, but we’ll leave that aside for now. The bigger scoop right now is that a Ranger Raptor R might be in the works! To put it simply, we might have a Ranger with a V-8 engine coming soon. But, we’ll take it with a pinch of salt because this is coming from the same company that didn’t give us a V-8 Bronco.
Ford F-150 Lightning vs Chevrolet Silverado EV – Full-size Pickup Truck Rivalry Renewed!
It seems like Chevrolet was in no hurry to roll out the Silverado EV. It came out nearly eight months after Ford launched the F-150 Lightning. But, now that the truck is here, it seems to be worth the wait. It is well loaded and comes with a lot of stuff that would give the F-150 Lightning a run for its money. For now, the Bowtie has revealed just two trims, but there are some more in the pipeline, including an off-road-oriented trim.
So, here’s the biggest question – how does the Chevy Silverado EV square up against the Ford F-150 Lightning? Here’s all you need to know about the age-old rivalry that’s now carried forward to the EV segment!

Prices For The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Revealed
Ford revealed the F-150 Lightning in 2021 and tried to check as many boxes as possible. While it seems like an all-rounded truck, the range came under scrutiny, especially when towing. Ford gave us all the details, but not the complete pricing. But, now the F-150 Lightning’s configurator has gone live and we know how much it costs. The truck starts at under $40,000 and goes over $90,000. This is without any additional options.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 by Lego Is The GT500 We Can All Afford
In all reality, no matter how much we love the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, its $72,900 starting price makes it not very affordable. But Lego is offering us a solution: a $49.90 kit that will at least give us the impression of owning a GT500. Of course, it only measures 10.5 inches and you also won’t be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, but it is still a start.
