2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept
The Blue Oval is preparing to unveil a variety of custom builds, including the Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept. Created to showcase the Bronco’s modularity, the concept highlights what amounts to the Bronco Badlands’ ability to act as an urban ride on weekdays and off-road marauder on weekends through the glory of swappable components.
The Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept will be revealed alongside Ford’s other SEMA offerings during the Ford Auto Nights webcast that starts at 8.PM. tonight.
Ford Didn’t Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco
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
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.”
The Ford Mach-E 1400 Has a Very Silent Affair With Goodwood Speed Week
Ford has entered the electric SUV realm with the Mustang Mach-E, a sporty hauler capable of up to 459 horsepower and up to 300 miles of range. But FoMoCo didn’t stop here and also created a monstrous race-spec Mach-E. Fitted with no fewer than seven electric motors that deliver a combined 1,400 horsepower, the Mustang Mach-E 1400 is downright spectacular when it comes to performance, but it also looks cool in its race-inspired suit. The SUV was recently showcased at Goodwood Speed Week, where master drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. proved that you don’t need gasoline power to do donuts.
2021 Ford Bronco Overland Concept
The all-new Bronco has looked very impressive on paper so far and has matched the Wrangler is almost every aspect. But, in its quest to beat the leader of the pack, the biggest question still poses in front of it – can it be accessorized and fitted with various parts and equipment like the Wrangler? Well, Ford has answered this by revealing the Bronco Overland Concept. Does this make Ford’s reincarnated product look versatile?
If you were to run a BMW M2 against a Shelby GT350, which do you think would win? Well, throttle house decided to do just that and put them through the paces on the track and in a drag race to see which one was actually better. In one corner, the BMW M2 is capable of putting out 365 horsepower and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, thanks to a 3.0-liter inline-six. In the other corner, we have the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 that pumps out 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-8. On paper, the Mustang should kill the M2 all day long running a cylinder down. But, it’s not always so cut and dry as you’ll see in the video below. Go ahead and click play, then sit back and enjoy the action!
2021 Ford Ranger Tremor
Customers in the U.S. have been craving the Ranger Raptor since it was announced for other markets. Ford has denied giving the pleasure so far, but there is news of the Ranger Raptor finally heading Stateside when the 2022 Ranger arrives. Since that is still some time away, the Blue Oval has decided to give us a taste of what to expect by introducing the Tremor off-road package for the mid-size pickup truck. While it is no Raptor, it is a lot more capable than the existing FX4 off-road package. Ford has priced the package at $4,290, but the catch is that is won’t be available on all the trims.
Quit Dreaming - A V-8 Ford Bronco Just Isn’t Going to Happen
In all honesty, the 2021 Ford Bronco has ticked all the boxes and it shows how much Ford has worked to make it a purposeful and near-flawless product. However, one thing creating a vacuum is the missing V-8 under the hood. Ford has offered a four-cylinder and a V-6 engine on the Bronco, but not a V-8. Now, the company has answered the question once and for all, and the truth is that there is no V-8 Bronco in the works.
Speaking with Muscle Cars and Trucks, Ford has indirectly laid the final nail in the coffin by saying that a V-8 Bronco is unlikely to happen, thanks to the emission regulations.
1981 Ford Bronco Montana Lobo Concept
At the 1981 Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled a rather unusual concept called the Montana Lobo. It seemed too radical for its time and felt as though it was taken straight out of a sci-fi movie. It broke all the perceptions associated with a rugged off-roader like the Bronco. The company came up with this unusual concept to get in the flow with the growing popularity of smaller pickup trucks and SUVs. Although it didn’t make it to production and none of the ideas or design elements were incorporated in the future models, the Bronco Montana Lobo goes down in the history books as one of the most interesting concepts Ford has ever built.
Amazing Car for Sale: 1969 Ford Bronco
While the new Bronco has been in the news ever since its launch and the majority of people seemed to have liked it, the old Bronco still enjoys a healthy demand. Any first-gen Bronco that hits the pre-worshipped market has people going gaga over it.
Here is one such 1969 example that arrived on Bring-a-Trailer a few days back and already has people lined up ready to get lay their hands on it. This SUV already has 22 bids and the highest bid stands at $43,500 at the time of writing.
Sorry, Europeans, No Ford Bronco For You
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.
Ford Kuga PHEV Stop-Sale Could Spark Worry in Ford Mach-E Customers
Ford launched the Kuga PHEV in the U.K. earlier this year, and so far, it’s been performing quite well, planting itself as the 10th best-selling car there in July of 2020. However, there’s a big problem brewing, with Ford being forced to recall and temporarily suspend global sales of the Juga PHEV because at least four have caught on fire. This problem seems limited to the Kuga PHEV, and Ford is only recalling models produced prior to June 26th, but does this spell trouble for other battery-electric models like, say, the Ford Mach-E?
2021 Ford Bronco Sport
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?
A New Leaked Image All But Confirms the Ford Maverick Pickup Truck
The ‘Maverick’ moniker has been in news ever since the Bronco news started surfacing the internet. Back then, there were rumors that it could be used for the entry-level trim or a special edition of the off-roader. 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
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.
The Ford Bronco Has Arrived and We can Smell Fear from Jeep Dealers Everywhere
It has been a long time coming, but Ford has finally unveiled the 2021 Bronco. The new Bronco will be available as a two-door, four-door, and Sport avatars and will be available with your choice between two engines, a lot of off-road equipment, and over 200 aftermarket accessories to choose from. The off-roader, as seen earlier, draws a lot of retro cues and comes with a host of tech features that will make the off-roading experience much better.
According to an Italian Speed Camera, The Ford Focus Is The Fastest Road Car On the Planet
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 Kicks Things Up a Notch With Three Off-Road Packages for the 2019-2020 Ranger Pickup
Ford Ranger owners must be happy with all the packages available for the truck lately. A couple of months back, Ford introduced a package that gave the Ranger extra horses and torque. Even Roush started offering a suspension kit for the newer models of the truck. Now, Ford has decided to introduce three new factory off-road packages for the mid-size pickup truck. These kits will be available for the 2019 and 2020 models and offer cosmetic, software, and hardware upgrades.
Falling For the Ford Mach-E’s 84-Month Financing Deal Will Cost You BIG Money
Order books for the 2021 Ford Mach-E have finally opened, and it’s being offered with a number of financing options – including an 84-month “deal.” That sounds intriguing, right? After all, that has to make for a much smaller payment than, say, 48 month financing. There’s a big catch, here, though, and it’s almost worthy of being called a scam. That 84-month financing deal, isn’t actually a deal at all, and will end up costing you ridiculous amounts of money.
The 2022 Ford Ranger Could Be Offered With An Efficient Hybrid Powertrain
Ford may have pulled the plug (pun intended) on a plug-in hybrid F-150, but it does have plans to introduce it on the 2022 Ranger. The Ranger is sold in many countries across the globe and is one of the most important products for the company.
The truck’s next generation is slated to be released next year, and it could see some massive changes under the hood. According to CarExpert, the Ranger will be offered with a new plug-in hybrid powertrain that hasn’t been used in any other product yet.
