2020 Ford F-250 - Driven
The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for over four decades now, and this legacy seems sufficient to introduce it. The company has a range of pickup trucks, ranging from light-duty to heavy-duty and for varied purposes. The list is exhaustive, but the bottom line is that if you need a full-size pickup truck, no matter what the budget or usage pattern, Ford has an offering for you, right from F-150 to the F-750.
While the F-150 is the best-seller of the lot and suffices for most of the needs, people looking for a little heavy-duty work tend to hop on to the next available option – the F-250. The F-250 is the entry-level model pf the Super Duty series that also includes the F-350 and F-450. This isn’t outright expensive, comes with strong specs, and fits the bill for most people looking to use it as a work truck. It is offered even with premium features on the top trim.
Recently, the 2020 Ford F-250 arrived at the Top Speed headquarters in the mid-Lariat trim, and here are our impressions of this beast:
Be Prepared to Overpay For the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor With a V-8
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX (unofficially AKA the Rebel) was a proverbial shot toward Ford, and it hit the Raptor right in the face. Where Ford thought it would continue to dominate the off-road truck market with the F-150 Raptor, Ram took years to develop something that was able to impressively compete, and it even comes with a Hellcat V-8 engine under the hood with nearly double the power of the F-150 Raptor’s puny little V-6. Within days of the TRX’s debut, Ford had a Shelby-powered F-150 Raptor on the road, which is intended to be a shot back at Ram, but a new report paints a slightly different picture.
This Gamer-Designed Ford Race Car Is Clearly the Future of Racing
Thank the coronavirus pandemic for the recent rise to fame of esports. The nasty thing we hate that goes by the name of COVID-19 has acted as a catalyzer for online sim racing, although the movement still existed before the virus.
And it’s about the time when big-name carmakers are joining the fray that you know there’s a lot of potential (money, too) in this form of racing. Yet, perhaps one of the most appealing selling point of esports is the audacity of some race cars. Enter Team Fordzilla’s P1 concept.
Old-School Showdown: 1991 Ford F-150 vs. 1995 Dodge Ram Tug-of-War
Back in the day, trucks were merely workhorses and didn’t come with a lot of comfort features or powerful specs. However, Ford used to offer one particular engine that, to date, is widely considered as one of the best engines ever built. Called the Ford 300, this 300 cubic-inch, or 4.9-liter, inline six-cylinder mill was so good that it stayed in production from the 1960s to 1996. The F-150 with this engine was best-suited for farmers, construction workers, and anyone that required a truck for rugged use. It was almost indestructible back then, but can it survive even today?
To know for sure, the folks at TFLClassics purchased a 1991 Ford F-150 and decided to put it to test. This included a tug-of-war with a 1994 Dodge Ram. Does the F-150 conquer the Dodge, or does it succumb to a newer, better-spec’d model?
The Lights on Ken Block’s SVC F-150 Raptor Will Turn Your Retinas Into Swiss Cheese
If you scroll down our page dedicated to the legendary Ken Block, you’ll quickly notice one thing: Outside of being an epic drifter, this is a man that loves his Fords. Most recently, he’s looking to dominate the Projekt E Series with an all-electric Ford Fiesta and he’s even gone so far as to put a Ford Raptor Engine Inside a Supra boat of all things. That Supra boat is also graciously towed by none other than a Ford F-150 Raptor, but this isn’t any raptor – it’s one that’s been tuned beyond reason by off-road tuner SVC. Now, Ken Block has done some crazy custom lighting work and, well, let’s just say that they can probably watch him Baja that F-150 Raptor at night from the International Space Station.
Watch The 2021 Ford Bronco Conquer The Hell’s Revenge Trail In Moab
We recently saw the Ford Bronco conquer the Rubicon Trail and now, it has reached Moab, Utah, to prove its mettle on an even bigger stage. Hell’s Revenge is one of the toughest off-road ‘circuits’ and is recommended only for veterans. There are a lot of steep climbs, slick rocks, and whatnot, and Ford decided to test the Bronco here too. Two videos were uploaded by The Bronco Nation on its YouTube channel and you can see the all-new off-roader conquer this trail successfully with ease.
Watch the Ford F-150 Raptor Take On An Old-School Ford SVT Lightning
We’ve seen a crazy number of performance trucks in the past, like the GMC Syclone and the Ram SRT-10. There was one offering from Ford as well that got all the enthusiasts pumped up – the SVT Lightning. The truck was sent into oblivion after two generations that spanned a little under 10 years, combined. It came with sedate looks and a powerful engine made to sprint.
Today, the F-150 Raptor covers up for it, but is it as good as the SVT Lightning? StangMode has uploaded a video of both these trucks going against each other on his YouTube channel, and it will answer this question for you.

The 2021 Ford Bronco’s Optional Tube Doors Bring Something the JL Wrangler Can’t
Ford recently unveiled the highly-anticipated 2021 Bronco, but we still don’t know much about its accessories. A recent leak confirms that the SUV will be available with tube doors, but unlike the Wrangler, the Bronco will also feature airbags for increased safety.
This 2021 Ford Bronco Police Interceptor Is Ready to Protect and Serve You Off-Road
The Bronco is a capable off-roader and there’s no doubt about it. Even its little sibling, the Bronco Sport, seems like an all-rounder that can take the tarmac and the beaten paths equally well. We’ve seen it as a Raptor, as a Baja 1000 racer, but this time, we’ve come across an intriguing rendering. How cool would a Bronco be in a cop uniform? Aksyonov Nikita has rendered the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport as a Police Interceptor and it looks fantastic!
2021 Ford Bronco
After being in production for over three decades, the Bronco went down in the history books as one of the most hardcore SUVs that mankind had ever seen. The SUV was developed as an off-roader to take on the Jeep CJ-5, and it succeeded to a large extent. However, the company decided to put down the model in 1996 to make way for a newer lineup. Purists and enthusiasts hoped the model would make a comeback, and after 20+ years, the moniker has come back from the ashes.
Rumors about its reincarnation started many years back, but the company didn’t confirm its existence until less than a year before it was unveiled. The wait was not easy, but it was worth it. The company launched the rugged, off-road Bronco in two- and four-door configurations, to go with an urban version with an off-road bias called the Bronco Sport. Ford will offer hundreds of optional accessories right from its launch as well. Despite all this, does it have in it to take on the undisputed king of the segment, the Jeep Wrangler?
It’s Almost Official - a Ford Bronco Pickup Is Coming, But The Question Is When
Earlier this month, Ford announced that the Bronco will not just be a model in the lineup, but will serve as a sub-brand. The reason was to probably give a lot more presence and added value to the brand. Not to mention, Ford’s plans to introduce multiple Bronco-related products.
The automaker has already unveiled the two-door and the four-door Broncos, as well as the Bronco Sport. A Bronco Raptor is also inevitable and could be seen within a couple of years. Now, Automobile Magazine claims that a Bronco pickup is also in the works and is expected to come in 2024. However, the Blue Oval is trying to shorten this period and is planning to have the truck out by 2022. More worry for the Jeep Gladiator?
Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?
Kim Kardashian went about ‘breaking the internet’ a couple of years ago and her husband could do the same if he becomes the President of the U.S. In between these things came the Ford Bronco, which has been the talk of the town ever since it was unveiled and is a worthy candidate for the same award. Such is the off-roader’s hype that many have forgotten the fourteenth-gen 2021 Ford F-150 was also unveiled just a couple of weeks before it.
If it was any other time, America’s best-selling vehicle would’ve garnered all the attention; but not this time. However, there is some news on that front as well. According to a report from CarsDirect, the 2021 F-150 could go north of $80,000. How about that!
Your $60,000 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Isn’t So Special Anymore
The 2021 Ford Bronco was met with a lot of excitement during its digital debut. Not everybody was happy, with the most common complaint seeming to be that there’s no option for a V-8. But, that didn’t stop Ford’s pre-order portal from being overloaded or the First-Edition from being sold out within a matter of hours. That First Edition trim is what we’re going to talk about today, or to be more specific, we’re going to talk about how Ford just upped the production cap from 3,500 to 7,000, making it a little less special in the process.
2021 Ford Bronco vs The Original Bronco
Ford revived the Bronco for the 2021 model year and brought the iconic nameplate back on the market after 25 years. And even though it had five generations to consider, four of which competed in the full-size segment, Ford opted to design the 2021 Bronco as a spiritual successor to the original compact SUV.
The sixth-gen hauler is clearly inspired by the first Bronco that was unveiled in 1965, with the most notable difference being a four-door version for the modern SUV. Granted, these vehicles arrived 55 years apart so they’re radically different when it comes to interior features, technology, and powerplants, but the 2021 Bronco is a cool tribute to the original SUV on the surface. So let’s find out what makes them similar and what sets them apart.
Sad the 2021 Ford Bronco Isn’t Offered With a V-8? PaxPower Has Your Back!
Ford is not offering the 2021 Bronco with a V-8 and it is stinging some people. The fact that Jeep announced a V-8 Wrangler just before the Bronco’s launch added to the misery. We expected aftermarket companies to pounce on this opportunity, but this soon? Houston-based PaxPower has already announced a V-8 Bronco. The tuner will plonk Ford’s V-8 Coyote engine and offer it in two iterations - 400 horses and 758 horses. Exciting enough?
This Leaked Video Suggests That A Bronco Hybrid Is On The Way!
Yes, there’s more news on the Bronco front. In all honesty, I think this past week should be called the “Bronco Week”. This time, the news is regarding a Bronco Hybrid. A video uploaded by “Input” on their YouTube channel shows the instrument cluster and the SYNC system. In one of the frames, you can see an “EV Coaching” dial. This can only mean that a Bronco hybrid is in the making.
This Ford Bronco 6x6 Pickup Screams Merica!
It hasn’t even been a week since the Bronco was launched and we already have wild renderings for it popping up from everywhere. Saleen showcased its version of the Bronco earlier, and now we have the Bronco rendered as a 6x6 pickup truck. There are a handful of trucks with a third axle we’ve seen, with the most reminisced one being the Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6. But, does that formula work on the Bronco? Well, you tell us!
