2021 Ford F-250 Super Baja by Shelby
Shelby needs no introduction. The company recently took Ford F-250 Super Duty under its wings and made it an absolute off-road beast. The truck features a new, rugged off-road suspension system, custom wheels and off-road tires, and steel bumpers amongst other things. It is powered by the stock engine itself that makes more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque. There are some tweaks on the inside, too. Courtesy of all these changes, Shelby has priced the F-250 Super Baja at over $125,000. Also, it is limited to just 250 examples. Care to buy one?
2021 Ford Expedition XL STX
There are many of us who want a full-size SUV but not the third row. In fact, you might just keep the third row folded always because you need the cargo space more than the seats. If you fall in that category, Ford has a solution for you.
For the 2021 model, the company has released a two-row version of its Expedition SUV that not only gives you the practicality of a full-size SUV, but also shaves $3,000 off the sticker price. It is offered as the new base trim within the lineup, but comes with enough features to keep you happy.
Everything We Know About The Ford F-150 Raptor R V-8
2021 started with a bang for us truck lovers when Ford announced the arrival of the third-gen F-150 Raptor. What made the deal even sweet what the little disclaimer at the end of the video which said, “more to come in 2022”. Decoding this cryptic text revealed that it’s the Raptor R, which will feature a V-8 engine under the hood, as confirmed by Ford officials on Twitter soon after. Beyond this, however, there is no information available. But, using the new standard Raptor as a benchmark and a truck that will take on the Ram TRX once it arrives, we have a lot to speculate.
2021 Ford F-150 Raptor
Six months after revealing the 2021 Ford F-150, Ford finally brought in the new Raptor as well. There was a lot of mulling around Ford introducing a V-8 to rival the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. But, Ford decided to keep the standard Raptor clear and announced a new Raptor R that will feature a V-8 and take on the cocky Ram 1500 TRX.
The 2021 model year marks the third generation of the F-150 Raptor, and Ford has come up with some significant changes. For starters, you can now have it with 37-inch tires from the factory, which was unheard of in this segment. Then there’s the new exhaust system to make it sound sweeter. But, will these changes push the price of this V-6-powered truck dangerously close to a better-accomplished, V-8-powered Ram 1500 TRX?
The Ford Bronco Sport Can Be Equipped With Five Accessory Bundles For More Outdoor Fun
To make sure that the Bronco received a positive response, Ford had prepped to unveil it with aftermarket accessories right from the beginning, with a plan to have over 150 accessories at launch. This was a page right out of Jeep’s playbook, a brand known to sell hundreds of aftermarket parts for every model. To make sure owners have no dearth of products to customize the Bronco and Bronco Sport as per their taste, the company has now launched five more bundles for the latter.
2021 Ford Super Duty By Roush Performance
Roush Performance is known for Ford builds and it has come up with one more; this time for the 2021 F-250 and the F-350 Super Duty trucks. The aftermarket company has worked on aspects that will make it even more capable in tough conditions, like a new exhaust system, upgraded suspension system, and new wheels and tires.
The Ford Bronco Was Apparently Raised By Goats And We’re Not A Fan
As far as origin stories go, the Ford Bronco’s genesis is as weird as it gets. No doubt, Ford wants to integrate the SUV’s “Goes Over All Terran” (G.O.A.T.) driving models into this commercial, and it did just that by adding goats into the tale of the Bronco’s birth. The ad is strange in so many ways that you might as well believe it if you’re the type to believe that such a scenario — a young, injured colt getting raised by goats — actually happens in this fair world of ours. But it is a commercial, and every commercial’s goal is to get people to talk about it. So, in a roundabout way, Ford’s “Raised by Goats” commercial for the Bronco succeeds in its intended objective. We’re talking about it, albeit with plenty of raised eyebrows and confused looks.
Ford’s Late Delivery of the 2021 Bronco Is Sending Would-Be Customers to Jeep
Ford unveiled the 2021 Bronco in a grand fashion and received an overwhelming response. There was a lot of pressure on the automaker to create a product that was good enough to go up against the very well established Jeep Wrangler. Ford managed to pull it off and people loved the Bronco - the 190,000 reservations it received prove so. But, with constant delays, it looks like people are losing patience and Ford is suddenly losing customers to none other than Jeep.
Check Out the Ford F-150 Electric As It Plays In The Snow
Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is out of the box, the company can focus (pun unintended) on developing the electric version of the truck. It’s been in the works for quite some time now, but the first time we saw it in action – and that also officially confirmed its presence – was when Tesla challenged it to a towing capacity test and the electric F-150 allegedly towed over a million pounds. Apart from that, the company teased the truck a few months back along with the announcement of the new Rogue facility.
But, it seems like the company has already starting hyping it up. Ford released a teaser video that showcases the electric F-150 playing on ice like it’s no one else’s business.
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ford F-150
Ford was preparing for the 2021 F-150’s launch for quite some time. The hype surrounding the world’s best-selling truck was immense, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and Ford had to settle for a rather subdued launch.
Still, people had their eyes glued to the screens to watch the live steam of the truck’s debut and to see what’s new this time around. The 14th generation needed to be a step up in all the aspects given how Ram and Chevy have upped the ante in the last few years. There are improvements in most of the departments, however, there are also a few things that we would’ve liked better. So, here’s a guide that compares the 2021 F-150 to its predecessor in terms of exterior, interior, tech features, engine options, towing capabilities, and price.
2021 Ford F-150 by PaxPower
Ford revealed the 2021 F-150 a few months back and it seems like a complete package. The exterior feels fresh and the interior comes with new features like Max Recline Seats and Interior Work Surface. When it comes to the drivetrains, Ford even introduced a new hybrid mill for the 2021 model along with a power boost on some of the existing engines.
One thing missing, however, was the Raptor version of the truck. Ford is still working on it and hasn’t introduced the 2021 F-150 Raptor, but just like the Bronco and the story of the missing V-8 engine, PaxPower has swooped in to capitalize on the opportunity.
PaxPower has introduced a few packages for the 2021 model year F-150 that come with bigger tires, heavy-duty steel bumpers, and a massive power boost that makes it more powerful than the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
A Ford F-150 Raptor Isn’t Really A Raptor Until It Has Tank Tracks
The immense mod potential in a vehicle is not limited to just hatches and sedans; even pickup trucks can be modified and customized to a crazy extent. Take Westen Champlin for instance. Instead of upgrading the tires to a bigger or a different set, he got some new shoes altogether. Champlin has fitted tank tracks on his Ford F-150 Raptor and it has become a beast that can conquer just about any terrain. Were we doing Raptor the wrong way until now?
This Dyno Video Proves That Ford’s New 7.3-Liter V-8 Deserves the "Godzilla" Name
Ford’s Godzilla engine needs no introduction. The automaker introduced this in the Super Duty truck series not too long ago. This V-8 pushrod displaces 7.3 liters and makes 430 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque. But, it looks like the engine is a lot more capable than its rather subtle state of tune in the production engine form.
Ever since the company started offering it as a crate engine, builders have been trying to extract every ounce of power from it. Merkel Racing Engines decided to do the same, and with minimal mods, they were able to achieve four-digit power figures. Is this engine a beast or what?
2021 Ford F-150 Tremor
The 2021 Ford Bronco Might Be Awesome, But It’s Also Delayed
The 2021 Ford Bronco had a great debut. The leaks before the launch gave away enough for speculations to bumble, but still maintained the surprise element. The hype generated by Ford’s PR was “built to last”, and when it finally debuted, it came with ample features to be touted as an extremely desirable proposition. The company rolled out the configurator, too, so people could spec their Broncos in time for the spring deliveries. But, it looks like the wait is going to get inevitably longer.
Ford announced that due to the pandemic, the Bronco’s launch is pushed from the spring to the summer of 2021.
2021 Ford F-150 Venom 800 By Hennessey
Aftermarket companies are snapping at new vehicles like hungry vultures; a case in point being the Ford Bronco. Companies like PaxPower, Saleen, and Hennessey, to name a few, have already made big announcements about it without even getting the car in flesh yet. Now, Hennessey has scalped another popular product from the house of the Blue Oval – the 2021 Ford F-150. Following up on the Venom 775 treatment given to its predecessor, the 2021 iteration is being built with extra horses, better performance figures, and beefier looks. Hennessey also announced that it will be making just 100 examples of the Venom 800.
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Towing and Payload Capacities
For any prospective truck owners, towing and payload capacities play a major role when they’re choosing their future acquisition. Automakers realize this, too, and try to up the ante with every new model they release. The segment’s top two contenders – Ford and Chevrolet – also did the same with their 2021 model year trucks, the F-150 and the Silverado 1500. Given the number of permutations and combinations these companies have to offer in terms of trims, body styles, engine options, and drive layouts, it could get very confusing to filter out the data. So here’s a comprehensive towing and payload guide for these two trucks that break down the essentials for you.
Watch The Ram TRX and The Ford F-150 Raptor Come Face-to-Face In This Four-Way Drag Race
It is always fun to see big, bulky trucks ripping the roads in a straight line. There are numerous videos online where you can find any combination of two trucks going up against each other. But, the one that you wouldn’t have seen so far and is arguably the most-anticipated war is the Ram 1500 TRX versus the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, this, too, is ticked off the list, thanks to the folks at TFLTrucks. The guys brought together the two behemoths on a drag strip along with the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram Rebel. Who are you rooting for?
2021 Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension
The 2021 SEMA Auto Show is going the virtual route because of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a bummer for those who were looking forward to their annual pilgrimage to Sin City, but automakers have long adapted to the situation. Instead of attending auto shows like SEMA to unveil their newest creations, automakers have now gone digital, showcasing their latest offerings online.
Ford is one of those companies, and tonight, the Blue Oval is hosting “Ford Auto Nights,” a special webcast where the automaker plans to unveil its 2021 SEMA Auto Show lineup. That lineup includes the F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension, a project truck that Ford created in partnership with BDS Suspension to showcase the automaker’s all-new Pro Power Onboard mobile power generator.
There’s Something So Mesmerizing About Watching This Wooden Ford Range Raptor Come to Life
The Ford Ranger Raptor is the badass brother of the log-crawling mid-size pickup truck that is the Ranger. The deal with each one of Ford’s Raptors is that they can still successfully face rough terrains but do so with an added dose of cool. Big tires, a wider body, and more ground clearance complete the image of a truck that few will mess with, even if it’s all been rendered in wood which is the material of choice in the case of this scaled-down replica of the Ranger Raptor.
The 2021 Ford F-150’s Max Recline Seats Mean You Can Sleep Comfortably Anywhere
The 2021 Ford F-150 came with a whole lot of new things, like a hybrid mill, 12-inch touchscreen system, and a Pro Power Onboard Generator, amongst other things. One other impressive feature are the Max Recline Seats.
These are seats that essentially flip down almost 180 degrees so you can take a nap on work sites. Instead of just having the existing seats to fold flat, Ford worked from scratch to make sure you don’t end up with sprains and aches if you decide to have a siesta.
Ford Unveils The 2022 E-Transit Electric Van
In an interview recently, Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley said, “There’s been a lot written about the electrification of our industry and Ford’s bet is different. We’re betting on a full lineup of commercial electrified vehicles.”
Well, it looks like the company has started its journey in the segment by unveiled the electric version of the world’s best-selling cargo van, the E-Transit. The van comes with connected services, an on-board generator, a range of 126 miles, and most importantly, a starting price of under $45,000. Will the E-Transit be as successful as the standard Transit?
This Police Chase With a 6x6 Hennessey Velociraptor Truck is the Most L.A. Thing Ever
A Hennessey Velociraptor 6x6 belonging to DJ Marshmello has found itself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The massive custom Ford Raptor with three axles and six wheels featured in one of the most surreal car chases in Los Angeles in recent memory after a lunatic stole it in a local dealership where it was being serviced. The lengthy police pursuit ultimately ended when the driver of the VelociRaptor crashed into a light pole outside of a Taco Bell. The driver’s identity has yet to be released, but he did find himself with plenty of charges on his hands.
