The Ford Bronco Isn’t An American-Exclusive Anymore
After an absence of 25 years, the Bronco name was revived in 2021. The sixth generation arrived as an off-road SUV built specifically for the American market. Now, after another year, Ford announced that the Bronco will also be offered on the European market, but there is a catch: it will be offered in limited numbers and only in left-hand drive. This way the Bronco will be the third American-built Ford model offered in Europe, next to the Mustang and the Explorer. European sales will begin in the third quarter of 2023.
Ford Gears Up to Become The Ultimate Enthusiast Brand
With the mass adoption of electric powertrains, it’s difficult to see how car companies plan to appeal to car enthusiasts. It seems Ford is tackling the challenge by splitting its model development process into two separate divisions: the Ford Model e division and the Ford Blue division. In the eyes of traditional fans, Ford has already done some controversial moves, case in point being the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which aside from the tri-bar taillights has little in common with the Mustang we all know and love. But now, Ford assures us that, despite the focus on EVs, it’s going to be an enthusiast-centric brand.
Ford’s EV Lineup Will be Radically Different
Ford CEO Jim Farley says the future EVs from the blue oval will not simply be electrified versions of current models. This means that the brand’s lineup will grow considerably, and it has even been said that fans of current models might not like the future electric models.
Chevy Won’t Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It’s Too Hard
Ford has offered a High-performance Raptor variant of the F-150 pickup truck to one degree or another since 2010. However, Chevrolet, or General Motors as a whole for that matter, has never had a direct rival to the Raptor. But why? General Motors has had the goal of beating Ford towards the top of its priority list since the 1960s. It is the whole reason the Camaro even exists in the first place. The main reason behind the lack of a high-performance Silverado, however, comes down to a simple business claim.
An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market
One of the main problems with Electric cars is that they are incredibly expensive to buy up front. Sometimes the sticker price can be up to $14,000-$15,000 more than their gasoline-powered cousin. However, the gap in price between these two kinds of automobiles is closing, and Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, thinks it will eventually come to a head.
The Ford Bronco Raptor Gives "Built Wild" A Whole New Meaning
The return of the Ford Bronco name quickly paved the way for various interpretations of the retro-futuristic SUV. Last year, Ford unveiled the future of Built Wild by introducing a short-wheelbase Bronco for the 4600 stock class, which was a throwback to the 1969 Bronco 1000 Baja. Now, Ford Performance took Built Wild to the next level, with a more utilitarian version, based on the four-door Bronco that’s even more extreme.
A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette
Ford Thunderbird (or the T-bird) was announced for the first time in 1953 as a direct competitor to the just launched – at that time - Chevrolet Corvette. In just a year it went from an idea to a prototype and was unveiled to the public during the 1954 Detroit Auto Show. Sales started shortly after for the 1955 model year. The Thunderbird was produced without interruption for ten generations - from 1955 to 1997, then discontinued until it was brought back to life in 2002. However, the eleventh generation was produced only for 3 years, so in 2005 the name was discontinued again.
Ford F-150 Lightning To Come With Tank Turn Capability!
The Ford F-150 Lighting debuted in 2021, but a year later, the company is all set to officially launch it. The company had received around 200,000 reservations for the world’s best-selling truck’s electric alter-ego, but recently stopped taking any more orders for it. While the truck is sold out for the current model year is a piece of big news in itself, there’s another big news coming in, courtesy of LightningOwners.com.
As it turns out, Ford has filed a patent with the USPTO about the tank turn capability in the Ford F-150 Lightning. Looks like Ford has already started reaping the benefits of its investment in Rivian… or does this have nothing to do with it?

A Ford Everest Raptor Isn’t off the Table
Following the reveal of the Ranger Raptor in late February 2022, Ford quickly pulled the sheets off the new Ford Everest – an SUV based on the Ford Ranger (so basically, a Ford Ranger converted into an SUV) with an all-new engine, three rows of seating, and an attractive go-almost-anywhere attitude. That attitude could soon change, though, as Ford is open to an Everest Raptor should there be a high enough demand for one.

Buying a car is not exactly what you would call a very eco-friendly choice.
