The Ford Mustang's Last Stand Could Involve Hybridization

The Ford Mustang’s Last Stand Could Involve Hybridization

The next-generation Ford Mustang may include hybridization. What will come after it, might have more in common with the Mach E than we would like

We have been tackling the subject of electrification quite a bit lately, as more and more models are adopting some form of electrification, with some becoming fully electric. For better or worse, this also extends to some iconic names like the Ford Mustang. With the latest information, from a Ford engineer, we have good reason to believe that the current, S550 generation of the pony car will be the last non-hybrid model.

Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 to lose 10 horsepower for 2022

Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 to lose 10 horsepower for 2022

Stricter emissions regulations, specifically the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV III) regulations, have forced the blue oval brand to reduce the performance of the Mustang GT and Mach 1.

Politicians around the world are doubling down on their commitment to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The United States is no exception, and this trend will definitely continue until we’ve achieved carbon neutrality or zero emissions. As the world heads toward this eco-conscious future, high-performance sports cars and supercars with gas-guzzling internal combustion engines (ICE) could soon be a relic of the past. The effect of these ever-stricter emission standards has led Ford to make performance changes to the Mustang GT and Mach 1.

It’s Official: The 2022 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Will Have a Manual Transmission

This order guide confirms that the Sasquatch Package will be offered with a manual gearbox on the 2022 Bronco

When Ford revived the Bronco moniker from the ashes, it made sure to cover all bases possible. It missed out on a couple of them, like not offering a V-8 and not making a manual gearbox available with the Sasquatch Package. The latter was rectified soon, and now there’s an official confirmation stating the same.

A user on Bronco6g.com forum attached an order guide for the 2022 Bronco that shows that the beefy Sasquatch package is available with the manual gearbox. Not exactly a surprise, but it’s good to have an official confirmation.

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance

A new Thunderbird might give the C8 Corvette trouble, but it needs to have a few aces up its sleeve in order to stand a chance.

The Ford vs Chevy rivalry is one of the oldest and biggest in automotive history. The two American carmakers have been going at it, across the lineup for decades. We have the Mustang vs Camaro, F-Series vs Silverado, and Bronco vs Trailblazer, but before all of those there was the Thunderbird vs C1 Corvette. And guess what, the Thunderbird wiped the floor with the Corvette, in the 1950s, outselling it 23 to 1.

The 2021 F-150 Raptor Doesn’t Give You The Same Bang For Your Buck Anyway

The 2021 F-150 Raptor continues to make 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque but now starts at over $65,000

Ford unveiled the 2021 F-150 back in June 2020. The 2021 F-150 Raptor should’ve made its debut then, but the company pushed it for a later date. Eight months later, the automaker finally took the wraps off it, but again withheld information regarding its power specs. Fast forward to the present day, the power outputs quietly go live on the site. As it turns out, the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will continue to make 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque! So much wait and drama for what?

The Ford Bronco Has A Little More Heart Than Expected

The Ford Bronco Has A Little More Heart Than Expected

The increase is up to 30 horses in case of the four-cylinder mill and up to 20 horses in case of the V-6 EcoBoost

Ford denied us the pleasure of driving a powerful V-8 Bronco, but it looks like the automaker is covering it up in different ways. Or, another way to look at it is Ford is rewarding the customers for taking longer than expected to deliver the Bronco. What the reward is, you ask? Well, you will be getting more power in your Bronco than the initial specs. This will be the case with both, the four-pot and the V-6 mills. Exciting news, isn’t it?

The New Ford F-150 Raptor Is Allergic to Electrification

The New Ford F-150 Raptor Is Allergic to Electrification

Rule out the possibility of even a hybrid Raptor

Ford has been busy with its trucks lately. First came with the 2021 F-150, which also featured a hybrid model in the lineup. Recently, Ford unveiled the F-150 Raptor as well, and announced one with a V-8 engine coming next year. Then there’s the electric F-150 in the works and we should hear more about it soon. Given how all vehicles are getting electrified, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that the Raptor’s next in line.

But, Ford has ruled this out even before the topic got picked up. According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, a higher-up from Ford has made it clear that the Raptor will continue to be a pure internal combustion-engined model.

Ford Actually Had to Modify Its Production Lines to Handle The F-150 Raptors 37-Inch Tires

Ford Actually Had to Modify Its Production Lines to Handle The F-150 Raptors 37-Inch Tires

This wasn’t a simple plug-and-play kind of a scenario

Ford launched the third-gen Raptor with a lot of interesting goodies. However, the 37-inch tires from the factory caught everyone’s attention. This is the largest size ever offered by any automaker from the factory in the light-duty truck segment. While it sounds exciting, it forced Ford to make some drastic changes to its production lines to accommodate it.

Folks from the Blue Oval spoke to Road and Track about this and it surely wasn’t as easy as it looks.

The $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack Makes the Mustang Shelby GT500 Slower

The $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack Makes the Mustang Shelby GT500 Slower

Don’t buy the Carbon Fiber Track Pack if you want to take the Shelby GT500 drag racing!

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is available with a Carbon Fiber Track Pack that makes it look meaner thanks to a GT4-spec rear wing. It also makes it lighter thanks to the carbon-fiber wheels, carbon-fiber dashboard, and rear-seat delete, as well as more agile on the race track.

On the other hand, it seems that this bundle makes the GT500 slower in a straight line. So if you’re planning to race your GT500 at the drag strip, save yourself $18,500 and stay away from the Carbon Fiber Track Pack.

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.
