You’ll Be Able to Configure Your New 2021 Ford Bronco Sooner Than You Think!
The 2021 Bronco has created a stir and people can’t seem to stop talking about it. In fact, the response has been so overwhelming that the website had also crashed. According to the Q2 earnings call, well over a hundred thousand people have reserved the new Bronco and can’t wait to lay their hands on the off-roader.
With numerous packages and accessories announced, the next exciting part is to be able to configure it and Ford has some good news for us on that front. The company has confirmed that the Bronco configurator will go live in September!
Here’s What You Need to Know About Choosing the Color of Your 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
We can’t not like the Blue colors that adorned the Shelby GT500 that was showcased during the car’s big debut. It was a beautiful color, and it fit the car pretty damn well. Of course, it looked even better because of the color of carpet it was displayed on, but that’s neither here nor there. What if you don’t want blue? Maybe you want pull-me-over-red (not that’s not a real color) or some variation of blue or purple even? Well, the Shelby GT500 is offered with your choice of 11 different colors, some of which you can have for free, and others you have to pay for. Oh, and about those racing stripes… we’ve got you covered on that too. Here’s what you need to know.
Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000
Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Ranger is set to return to American dealerships after a very long absence. However, pricing and some important information remained a mystery. Now, the truck’s configurator showed up earlier than expected on Ford’s official website, revealing cab options and specific pricing. I say earlier than expected because Ford has taken the page down shortly after it made headlines.
2019 Ford Mustang - How We’d Spec It
The 2019 Ford Mustang’s online configurator is like a candy store for fans of the muscle car. It comes with a wealth of customization choices that made the whole process of creating our own version an exercise in patience and perseverance. But I got my way through it, largely because the whole thing was fun and exciting. It didn’t feel like work as much as it felt like seeing my creation come to life, at least in the virtual world. Even better, the Mustang is actually affordable for regular folks like us, so who knows, someone here might end up going home with a real one.
In Depth: 2017 Ford F-150 Buyer’s Guide
The Ford F-150 has been the best selling pickup for nearly 40 years and has more recently become the best selling vehicle – regardless of model type – in the United States. To say the F-150 is an important and well-loved vehicle would be a dramatic understatement. That’s why we’re looking deep into the F-150’s configuration and options combinations. We aim to inform consumes on what Ford offers with the F-150.
The current F-150 was dramatically reinvented for the 2015 model year an is vastly different from any other pickup on the market. That’s because its body is constructed of lightweight aluminum and it rides on a highly engineered, fully boxed steel frame. It has a pair highly technical, forced-induction engines and it is the first mass-production vehicle to offer a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Of course, the F-150 has some strong competition, namely from General Motors and Ram. GM offers its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra twins, while Ram has its 1500-series truck. There are others out there, too, including Nissan’s new-for-2017 Titan and Toyota’s aging Tundra. Still, it’s Ford that continues to sell more trucks to more people across the North American continent.

Anybody obsessed with cars has spent countless hours perusing online build configurators, selecting just the right combination of options, the perfect paint color, and all the intricate interior details. Well F-150 Raptor fans can now customize their perfect truck on Ford’s Build & Price website.
The website allows users to select cab configurations, color choices, option groups, graphics packages, interior accent packages, and a slew of stand-alone options like the Torsen front differential and adaptive cruise control. The Raptor is the top trim choice for the SuperCab configuration, but slots between the King Ranch and Platinum trim levels when the SuperCrew configuration is chosen. The website shows pricing ranges from $48,325 for the SuperCab and $51,310 for the SuperCrew. Check every option box on the SuperCerw, and the MSRP jumps to $70,000.
Beyond cab configurations, users can choose between seven exterior colors. The three main equipment packages includes the standard 800A package at no cost, the 801A package for $3,158, and the 802A package for $9,345. Broken down, the 800A package is basically everything that makes a Raptor a Raptor. The 801A package is where additional items start packing on. It includes 10-way power front seats with heat and power lumbar functions, leather seating surfaces, a power-sliding rear window, SYNC3, eight-inch driver info center in the gauge cluster, and two USB ports.
The mac-daddy 802A package includes everything in the 801A package, but adds the Torsen front diff, the 360-degree camera system, ambient interior lighting, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, dual-zone climate control, integrated trailer brake controller, LED box lighting and side mirrors, keyless enter and go, power tilt and telescope steering column, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, remote start, and a few other ancillary items.

What Does Our Dream Ford GT Look Like?
In case you were unaware, Ford’s 600-horsepower supercar is available for digital dress up right here, giving would-be owners and Blue Oval fanboys a crack at crafting the perfect look for the mid-engine all-‘Merican hero. Of course, perfection is a fickle thing, so I spent my morning coming up with four unique combinations that’ll appeal to a broad range of tastes and likes. I even gave the combinations their own names. Say hello to the Historic, the Stealth Bomber, the Attention Grabber, and the Daytona.
Picking a personal favorite from the bunch isn’t easy, but if it were my $400,000, I’d probably go with the Daytona (I kinda have a thing for blue cars). But that’s just me – we wanna know which configuration you’d take. Did we nail it, or miss the mark here? Tell us in the comments, and don’t to forget to screenshot your own combo and post it for the world to see!

Ford GT Configurator Launched
Unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in prototype form, the second-generation Ford GT is about to go on sale for the 2017 model year. The Blue Oval has just made another step toward launching its first supercar in more than a decade by firing up the GT’s online configurator. So, if you already placed a preorder or have the rumored $400,000 required to take one home, you can now browse between a number of options and customize Ford’s latest supercar.
The configurator still is still missing some of the features that will be available with the new GT, but it enables you to browse through the exterior colors, racing stripe packages, wheel options, and upholstery alternatives. What’s more, the online tool reveals that the 2017 Ford GT will receive not one, but two special-edition models. Ford doesn’t provide any details whatsoever, but given that the company is celebrating 100 years since it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time, we expect at least one of them to have something to do with the iconic race. Most likely it will be a special livery, but we won’t know for sure until Ford spills the beans.
As a brief reminder, the new GT is powered by a 3.5-liter, EcoBoost V-6 mounted behind the seats. The turbocharged mill is based on a racing engine Ford used in its IMSA Daytona prototype and it is estimated to generate more than 600 horsepower. All that oomph will travel to the rear wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transaxle. Production will be limited to only about 250 units per year according to Ford Performance boss Dave Pericak.
You can configure the Ford GT of your dreams here or you can continue reading to find out more about the options this supercar will carry.

The order books are now open for the 2016 Ford Mustang, which means you are now able to waste away your afternoon configuring your dream 2016 Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R. For me, it’s the Shadow Black GT350R with the black and red racing stripes, but there are numerous color options available for both cars and a handful of options. Check it out – just make sure your boss isn’t around.
More than just a waste of time, though, the configurator also reveals the pricing of both high-performance Mustang variants The 2016 Shelby GT350 will start at $47,795, while the track-oriented 2016 Shelby GT350R will be priced at $61,295. At these prices, the GT350 is about $1,000 more than the less-powerful 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392, and the GT350R is about $13,000 less expensive than the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
When it comes to options, the GT350 can be equipped with the $6,500 Track Package that includes features such as MagneRide Damping System, aluminum strut tower brace, heavy-duty front springs, a raised decklid spoiler and oil coolers for the engine, transmission and rear differential. The $7,500 Technology Package adds a few of these upgrades, but like its name suggests, it mainly focuses on improving the cabin with features that include a seven-speaker audio system, heated and cooled front seats, dual zone automatic climate control and the latest Sync technology with voice-activated navigation. The downside of this package is that it isn’t available with the Recaro racing seats – drivers will have to settle for leather buckets.
Looking at the GT350R, it comes standard with all of the Track Package upgrades, so the sole option package is the $3,000 Electronics Package, with all of the tech goodies mentioned above in the GT350’s Tech Package. Both cars can have racing stripes for an extra $475, while a black-painted roof is $695.
As far as the non-Shelby Mustangs go, the biggest news for the 2016 Mustang is the debut of the California Special, which be a $1,995 option on the Mustang GT and Mustang GT convertible.

Although production of the 2015 Ford Mustang is not scheduled to begin for another two months, the brand-new pony is on sale and already enjoying great success, especially in Europe. With hundreds of examples already booked via preliminary reservations, Ford has just fired up the online configurator so we can all have a little fun going through the car’s options and features.
The configurator allows users to pick from five different fastback versions. The base V-6 sits alone at the bottom of the range, while both the EcoBoost and the V-8-powered GT are available in standard and Premium guises. Moving over to the Convertible ’Stang, the EcoBoost and the GT are only available in their Premium trims.
Once you select a transmission — either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic — the Mustang is ready to receive one of the many available exterior colors. A range of packages, options and up to six distinct wheels designs round out the vehicle’s exterior customization potential. The next step takes us into the cabin where possibilities are reduced to just a few options and upgrades.
Things should get far more interesting in the Accessories section, but that part of the configurator is not available as of 06/13/2014. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of fun to be had loading the 2015 Mustang with all sorts of features inside and out. Before any extras are added, the brand-new pony starts from $23,600 with a Fastback body and from $29,100 with a soft-top.
