The 2024 Ford Mustang Will Punch Above its Weight Class

That’s an Improvement of 50 horsepower over the current Mustang GT

The eighth-generation Ford Mustang has been the subject of rumors for a very long time, and an official debut will finally happen on September 14, 2022 – the first day of the Detroit motor show. The new generation Mustang - internally known as the S650, will be updated inside and, while retaining the current engine lineup, it will offer some significant performance improvements. A recent report from Ford Authority reveals that the updated V-8 engine should deliver as much as 500 horsepower in at least one configuration.

Leaked: The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Could Be Offered With Shelby GT500’s 5.2-Liter Engine

With 760 horsepower under the hood, it will give the TRX a lot to think about!

We’ve known for quite some time now that “the” Ford F-150 Raptor R is coming - it has actually been delayed once already. We also know that it will be offered with a V-8 engine - as the company itself confirmed. The only problem is that the list for that V-8 engine is quite long and includes the 5.0-liter, V-8 Coyote up to the 7.3-liter, V-8 Godzilla. One thing is for sure, no matter what it was, it needed to be something powerful enough to compete with Ram TRX’s supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine. A new leak has exposed Ford’s plans for the Raptor R and they are bigger than you think.

An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment

An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment

The GT is one of the most celebrated nameplates of all time and a transition to electric could once again be history in the making

With an investment of $22 Billion towards electrification, Ford is betting big on EVs. Iconic names like the Mustang and North America’s best-selling vehicle, the F-150 (sold-out) have already taken the plunge with the Mach-E and the Lightning pick-up.

While these vehicles cater to a broader audience in terms of being accessible, what about cars at the other end of the spectrum? With such large investments toward EVs in the pipeline, it’s not hard to imagine heritage names like the GT could also make this transition. These exclusive renders from our sister outlet, Hotcars, should give you an idea of what a potential Ford E-GT could look like.

The Next-Gen Ford Mustang Could Break Cover in April 2023

National Mustang Day next year would be a fitting date to debut the iconic American muscle car’s seventh iteration

You’ve heard the rumors, seen the spy shots, and have probably come across a bunch of renders of the next-gen Mustang already. Known internally as the S650, expect the 2024 Mustang to make its debut in April next year. CarAndDriver anticipates that the blue oval will debut the seventh-gen model at its 60th Anniversary, down to the exact date: April 17th. Known as the National Mustang Day, this date would be ideal to unveil an all-new generation of the Pony car. It was on April the 17th, 1964 that the original Ford Mustang was unveiled for the very first time at the New York World’s Fair.

The 2023 Nissan Z Finally Shows What It Can Do Against Its Competitors

We finally see how the manual and automatic Nissan Z perform against each other and their direct competitors

With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

Ford Might Have Some Big Plans For The ‘Raptor' Brand In The Coming Years

Ford Might Have Some Big Plans For The ‘Raptor’ Brand In The Coming Years

Ford’s priority in 2022 and the coming years seems to be to elevate the Raptor Brand and not electrification

While the onus will be on electrification moving forward, there are a lot of other moving parts that need to work along in tandem for automakers to ensure a smooth transition. Ford has taken the first big step – probably the biggest step – of electrifying the most product in its lineup, the Ford F-150. With that out of the way, the automaker can now switch its focus on something completely different altogether this year – grow the Raptor brand even more.

If you pick up all the pieces the company has been dropping in the last 1-1.5 years, you’ll realize that it is working on building the Raptor brand. We have the F-150 Raptor R coming, the Bronco Raptor is already here, and even the Ranger Raptor has finally crossed the forbidden door and come to the States and Canada. Will Ford make ‘Raptor’ a standalone brand like the Mustang and the Bronco?

It Looks Like The Ford Kuga Will Undergo A Massive Transformation

The Ford Kuga will "Escape" from the current reality and come out on the other side with a new face

The third generation Ford Kuga (also known as the Escape in the States) was launched in 2019 and went on sale in Europe in the same year. The Escape, on the other hand, was put on sale a year later. And now, despite still being very fresh, the Kuga is about to get its first facelift.

Our spy photographers caught the first prototypes of the facelift Kuga testing on the streets of Germany, next to the current model.

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor

The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor revealed with a 3.0-liter V-6 mill, wider body, 37-inch tires, and a ton of off-road equipment

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 puts out 418 horses, an upgraded suspension setup and off-road gear, and a price tag of around $70,000.

A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works

A V-8-Powered Ford Ranger Raptor Could Be In The Works

Ford Australia wants to build one as it sees a lot of potential for a Ranger-based Desert Runner in the Land Down Under

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.

2023 Ford Everest Three-Row SUV Teased, But It Probably Won't Reach The U.S.

2023 Ford Everest Three-Row SUV Teased, But It Probably Won’t Reach The U.S.

It is expected to make its debut in Q1 2022

Body-on-frame SUVs have seen a rise in popularity in North America as of late. The Toyota 4Runner, for instance, continues to sell well despite being more than a decade old. And then we also have a ton of new body-on-frame SUVs such as the Ford Bronco, which was a sales hit for the Blue Oval brand. Soon, the next-generation Ford Everest is expected to debut, but it probably won’t reach North America.

The Ford Focus Electric Could Have Been A Little Ahead of Its Time

The Ford Focus Electric Could Have Been A Little Ahead of Its Time

Now that the Mach-E has set Ford’s real electric future in motion, is the time right to bring back the Ford Focus Electric?

The truth is that the Ford Focus Electric was an utter and complete failure compared to most of Ford’s lineup. During the time it was on sale between 2011 and 2019 here in the United States, Ford averaged a sales volume of around 1,125 examples per year. In fairness, it was one of the first big steps that Ford took into electrification, and now it seems like it may have been a little ahead of its time – especially now that the Ford Mach-E is, you know, such a hit.

Ford Just Aborted the Ford Bronco Pickup Project That Never Existed

Ford Just Aborted the Ford Bronco Pickup Project That Never Existed

The Bronco pickup was just a thought until now, but we are still disappointed to hear its canceled

The way the Ford Bronco turned out, it feels like it was conceived with a sole purpose in mind – to kill the Jeep Wrangler. So, naturally, everyone expected it to target even the Gladiator, the Wrangler-based pickup truck, by eventually launching a Bronco-based pickup truck. But, as it turns out, the rumored truck is canceled and the Gladiator will live to fight another day.

A Ford GT Test Mule Has Been Spotted Around Detroit With a Seemingly Different Engine

A Ford GT Test Mule Has Been Spotted Around Detroit With a Seemingly Different Engine

A weird-looking GT test mule was spotted recently that hints at Ford working on the rumored C8 Corvette competitor

A while back, we shared information about a C8 Corvette being benchmarked on Ford grounds, in Dearborn, Michigan. This was preceded by a trademark for the Thunderbird name, filed by Ford, in January 2021. Recent reports suggest that Ford has moved to the next step in developing a C8 rival. Ford Authority shared information about at least one Ford GT roaming around Ford test facilities. Moreover, the car spotted reportedly had a mysterious new engine that sounded nothing like the 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost.

First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name

Skyline is supposed to bring fond memories of certain Nissan cars, but soon that could change

One could easily argue that the Skyline name belongs to Nissan. It brings back memories of cars like the 1957 Nissan Prince Skyline and, more importantly, cars like the R32, R33, and R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R – the godfather of Godzilla itself, the current Nissan GT-R. The name has been kept alive in certain markets as a sports sedan – the same car we call the Infiniti Q50 here in the States, and now it seems a new Skyline could be coming the U.S. market. The catch? If it happens, It’s not going to wear a Nissan badge but a Ford or Lincoln badge instead.

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?

Ford might be cooking up a new mid-engined car, and that means the C8 Corvette could be in danger

Ford versus Chevrolet is one of the most epic automotive rivalries we’ve come to witness. You’re probably familiar with the Mustang vs Camaro, or F-Series vs Silverado rivalries, but now an even older Ford vs Chevy rivalry could be resurrected. The mid-engine C8 Corvette is currently GM’s pride and joy and Ford doesn’t have anything to compete against it. At least not at this price range, as the Ford GT is way more expensive and produced in much lower numbers. However, it seems this might change very soon, as the Blue Oval was spotted testing a C8 on their home turf, in Dearborn.

Ford Could Revive the "Splash" Name for an Electric Ranger or Maverick

Ford Could Revive the "Splash" Name for an Electric Ranger or Maverick

Ford used the “Splash” badge on a sportier version of the second-year Ranger from the 90s

Ford’s revival of old monikers continues. After bringing back the Bronco last year and resurrecting the ‘Lightning’ nameplate for the recently-unveiled electric F-150, Ford has now filed the ‘Splash’ name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The trademark covers ‘Electric vehicles’, so we know this will be an EV. If history suggests anything, it might be the electric version of the Ranger. But, the automaker has a third pickup truck in its arsenal now – the Maverick.
