The Steeda F-150 Thunder Edition Brings Back Memories of the SVT Lightning

The Steeda F-150 Thunder Edition Brings Back Memories of the SVT Lightning

And it does it with 775 horses under the hood!

When we hear the words "high Performance" Ford F-150 we automatically think about the F-150 Raptor. Or, in the near future F-150 Raptor R. But there was a time when the F-150 was offered in a different high-performance guise. It was called SVT Lightning, and it was offered only for two generations, between 1993 and 2004. Now, Ford is using the Lightning nomenclature for the all-electric version of the F-150, so the name can’t be used anymore. That left Steeda with only one option for its take on a high-performance F-150 - name it the F-150 Thunder Editio because, you know, thunder comes after the lightning.

It's Imperative That Ford Launches a Ranger EV ASAP

It’s Imperative That Ford Launches a Ranger EV ASAP

Ford and Volkswagen could corner a new market with a smaller electric pickup truck

At this point, it would be a miracle if we see the Tesla Cybertruck this decade, the GMC Hummer is too expensive, GM can’t sell EVs to save its life, yet the Ford F-150 Lightning is already sold out. What does that tell you? The American public wants electric trucks, but they don’t want to pay a fortune for them and, while the Cybertruck is cool, it’s gimmicky and won’t appeal to the wide range of people that actually buy trucks. A Ford Ranger EV, however, would be more affordable than all of the aforementioned trucks, it would be usable in day-to-day life, and it would just make sense. As it turns out, it might happen sooner than we all thought.

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

This race proves that a Dodge Charger without a Hemi V-8 isn’t worth much on a drag strip. Especially, when it races a turbocharged, AWD Ford Fusion Sport

It’s always interesting to see how two stock or mildly modified vehicles stack up against one another in a drag race. Our fellow Canadian car enthusiast, Sam CarLegion has gathered two entry-level sedans with V-6 engines in order to find out who’s quickest. We have a Dodge Charger on one side and a Ford Fusion on the other. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive and V-6 engines, but that’s where the similarities end.

2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor

2022 Shelby Ford F-150 Raptor

It offers an extra 75 horsepower over the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor!

When Ford announced the new generation F-150 Raptor everyone expected to see at least a small power increase. Well, turns out Ford decided to offer the same engine under the hood: a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. A very disappointing news for every Raptor fan out there.

Shelby however has the solution: its latest pack based on the new generation F-150 Raptor delivers no less that 525 horsepower. Still, way under the Ram 1500 TRX, but a lot better than a standard Raptor, right?

2022 Ford Edge ST - Driven

2022 Ford Edge ST - Driven

What do you get when you cram extra performance into an SUV that doesn’t need it? An SUV that practically resides in a niche all its own

The Ford Edge, in general, competes against models like the Acura RDX, Hyundai Santa Fe, and even the Chevy Equinox. And it competes well. But Ford has kicked things up a notch with the Edge ST by replacing the four-cylinder with a V-6 and injecting a few other performance credentials to go with it. Now, the midsize luxury SUV segment has no shortage of high-performance offerings, but the Edge ST doesn’t exactly fall into the luxury category, nor does it fit into any category really.

See, none of the Edge’s competitors are offered as high-performance models, so the Edge ST actually sits in a niche all its own. That means that, unless you’re dead set on an Edge ST, you actually have to look at the luxury segment to find anything that actually competes. Dare I say the Ford Edge ST competes with the Audi SQ5 or the Porsche Macan? It’s not quite as expensive in base form, but with the 401A equipment group, which includes things like the panoramic vista roof and remote start, and the ST Performance Brake Package, it suddenly slips right into the same territory. Does it really hold its own, though? We spent a week with it to find out.

Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT

The Kia Stinger GT is surprisingly capable with only a tune, but a 750-horsepower, ROUSH Ford Mustang GT has something to say about it

When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.

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

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.

New Ford Mondeo Lives On As A Handsome Sedan That The U.S. Won’t Get

Outside the U.S., Ford’s sedans are still alive and kicking, and this new Mondeo is a prime example

Ford stopped producing sedans for the U.S. ever since the final Fusion rolled off the production line on July 31, 2020. While sedans are not in Ford’s future here in North America, this body style is still popular in China, where the new Mondeo will soon make its official debut.

This Failed Moose Test Confirms That The Ford Mach-E Is Actually A Mustang!

This Failed Moose Test Confirms That The Ford Mach-E Is Actually A Mustang!

Next stop to confirm the Mach-E is a Mustang: Hit the crowd

For the longest time, I’ve refused to acknowledge the Mach-E to have the Mustang spirit. But, it looks like I’ll have to change that now. The Mach-E just gave us solid proof that it has the Mustang DNA by failing a moose test that its rivals passed without breaking a sweat. The Mach-E swayed across and fishtailed its way into the cones at the first turn. The original Mustang must be smiling with tears in its eyes looking at the Mach-E.

2021 HWC Special Edition Ford Raptor Could Be Your Only Chance To Own A 2017 Raptor

You can own a 2017 Ford F150 Raptor for only $30, but there’s a catch

Hot Wheels has launched its own version of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, and while it does look pretty amazing, it won’t cost you the same $49,520 you would have had to pay when the original F-150 Raptor launched.

The exterior is complete with Real Riders Baja Wheels, a matte black tailgate, a smoke-lined windshield, and a full-metal, black-painted chassis.

In the end, the 2021 HWC Special Edition (F-150 Raptor Hot Wheels) will set you back just $30, which isn’t bad for a special edition Raptor. It is already on sale as of August 10, 2021, but its production is limited to don’t expect to find them on the shelves for very long.

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.

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.

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?

Ford Ranger is a capable midsize truck with a lot of potential for off-road and performance-oriented mods.

The latest one to do so is Roush Performance. Roush has taken the 2021 Ranger under its wing and turned it into an off-road beast.

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.
