The Ford Bronco Isn't An American-Exclusive Anymore

The Ford Bronco Isn’t An American-Exclusive Anymore

Ford has decided to offer the Bronco in other parts of the world on a very limited basis

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

Ford Gears Up to Become The Ultimate Enthusiast Brand

Ford’s future plans involve enthusiast-centric models and "Passion brands" despite mass-electrification being the main focus

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.

Chevy Won't Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It's Too Hard

Chevy Won’t Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It’s Too Hard

It is just not cost-effective, but Chevy has Ford on the ropes in other areas.

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

An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market

This could be really good for Ford, and really bad for Tesla

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 Ford Bronco Raptor Gives "Built Wild" A Whole New Meaning

The Ford Bronco Raptor finally becomes the off-road devil it was always meant to be

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

A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette

Can Ford really offer a new sports car that is not the GT?

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!

Ford F-150 Lightning To Come With Tank Turn Capability!

Is this a result of Ford’s investment in Rivian, since the latter was the first to come up with the tank turn?

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

A Ford Everest Raptor Isn’t off the Table

If there’s enough demand for an Everest Raptor, Ford will probably be happy to oblige

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.

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

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.
