Ford Didn't Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco

Ford Didn’t Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco

Imagine the horror if it can’t happen and all aftermarket swap ideas have to be scrapped too!

When the Bronco was unveiled, a lot of us were disappointed by the absence of a V-8 mill. But, we still had hopes that it could become a reality someday. However, Ford made it clear that a V-8 will not be offered here. Although we had our deliberations, this confirmation from Ford served as the final nail in the coffin.

It has now come to light that Ford was sure about not offering one right from the start. In fact, it even built the Bronco without bothering to check if a V-8 engine could be plonked in or not! Speaking with Ford Authority, Bronco’s Chief Engineer, Eric Loefller said that they hadn’t even given it a shot during its development days.

The Ford Escape ST Could Humble The VW Tiguan R and Hyundai Tucson N Line

And guess what: Ford actually likes the idea of an ST-badged Escape

As crossovers and SUVs remain crowd favorites, carmakers are looking to further milk the cash cow by offering souped-up versions for their high-riding people and grocery carriers. The latest rumor to hit the internet has to do with Ford and the fact that the Blue Oval believes slapping the ST badge on the Escape is “a fantastic idea.”

2021 Ford Puma ST

Your Fiesta ST on stilts is served

Ford has unveiled the 2021 Puma ST, the spiciest iteration of the Puma crossover; we doubt there will ever be an RS badge slapped to the Fiesta-based small SUV that Ford assembles in Craiova, Romania. That said, here’s all you need to know about the new Ford Puma ST, which inherits the same 1.5-liter, three-cylinder powerplant Ford debuted in the Fiesta ST.

Sorry, Europeans, No Ford Bronco For You

Sorry, Europeans, No Ford Bronco For You

It’s Official: The 2021 Ford Bronco Isn’t for Europe

On the onset, the new 2021 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport appear to be a big hit for the blue oval. In the first three weeks after its reveal, North American consumers have made more than 165,000 reservations – something that appears to be a first for Ford. Of course, those reservations only required a refundable, $100 deposit, but for now, things are looking great the new Bronco. But it’s not all peaches and cream and, as it turns out, the Bronco and Bronco Sport are going to be absent from a major market. The worst part is that you can blame the government and you’d likely be right for once.

No Oil Test: Honda vs. Ford vs. Peugeot - Which Lasts Longer?

No Oil Test: Honda vs. Ford vs. Peugeot - Which Lasts Longer?

Driving without coolant and oil? Don’t try this at home kids!

As a driver, you should know that driving your car with the oil light on isn’t a good idea. The oil light usually pops on when the oil level drops or there’s insufficient oil pressure. Driving with the oil light on may cause extensive and expensive damage to the engine. But how long will a car’s engine run if you drain it of all coolant and oil? The folks over at Carwow tested this out on three different cars, a Ford Focus, a Peugeot 206, and a Honda Civic.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

The Bronco Sport is an urban crossover that can also go on beaten paths with utmost ease

The Bronco’s revival has made enthusiasts and purists more than happy. But, given how tough the market has become, Ford knew that it would also need a practical vehicle. In comes the Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport is not as rugged as the standard Bronco and can be very much used as a daily driver as well. If I had to describe it in a sentence, I’d say it’s not an off-roader like the Bronco, but a crossover with a very heavy off-road bias. It has a lot of Bronco shades and vibe all around, but will people accept it as an urban crossover and as their daily driver?

The ‘Maverick’ moniker has been in news ever since the Bronco news started surfacing the internet.

But, a couple of months back, a 3-D image of a truck’s tailgate with ‘Maverick’ embossed on it started doing rounds. Now, Motor1 has received another image from an anonymous source that has ‘Maverick’ stamped on it. Does this confirm a new pickup truck from the Blue Oval?

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is the Bronco’s Not-So-Rugged Little Brother

The Ford Bronco Sport is a Baby Bronco with stylish looks

Ford just took the off-road SUV market by storm with the Bronco, reviving the iconic nameplate after almost 25 years. Although it captured all the hype, the Bronco isn’t the only SUV that Ford introduced today. It also launched the Bronco Sport, a slightly smaller crossover aimed at vehicles that aren’t as rugged as the Jeep Wrangler. The Bronco Sport also boasts vintage styling cues inspired by the original Bronco, but it looks decidedly more modern. The Bronco Sport is based on the Escape, but it’s more capable off the beaten path, and it looks better. Let’s find out more about it below.

According to an Italian Speed Camera, The Ford Focus Is The Fastest Road Car On the Planet

According to an Italian Speed Camera, The Ford Focus Is The Fastest Road Car On the Planet

Imagine driving 703kmh in a Ford Focus of all things…..

Imagine cruising down the highway at 703 kmh (about 437 mph) in a Ford Focus. You and I both know that this is downright impossible, and even if it was, the Ford Focus is the last car on Earth that you’d want to do it in. Well, despite the logical conclusion that this didn’t happen, an Italian speed camera – in the most epic of epic glitches – flagged an Italian driver at exactly that 703 kmh in a 70 kmh zone. One would think that glitches happen on occasion and someone would have noticed, but that isn’t the case. A few days later, the driver was issued an €863.60 ($974) speeding fine and 10 points, the latter of which is halfway to suspension if your license is clean.

Ford’s New Upgrade Package For The Ranger Offers A Significant Power Boost

It’s just a power upgrade and doesn’t substitute for a Ranger Raptor

Ford is giving us a faster Ranger, but it’s not the Ranger Raptor. For years now, Ford has been dilly-dallying on bringing the Ranger Raptor to the States despite there being a strong interest from enthusiasts.

Instead, Ford Performance has introduced a new performance calibration for the truck. This gives the Ranger an additional 45 horses and 60 pound-feet of torque. The upgrade is priced quite reasonably and costs less than $1,000. Any takers?
