2019 Ford F-150 SC 650HP by Roush Performance

2019 Ford F-150 SC 650HP by Roush Performance

This is a Ford F-150 tuning program done right

Roush Performance is pulling out all the stops with its new tuning package for the Ford F-150. The program comes with upgrades and modifications to the F-150’s exterior, interior, engine, and suspension. It’s as extensive a kit as you can find for the Blue Oval’s popular hauler. It doesn’t come cheap, though. The price of turning the Ford F-150 into the Roush F-150 SC adds up to $22,999, and that doesn’t include the price of the base F-150 unit.

Ford Takes the Fun Out of Off-Roading with Trail Control for the 2019 Ford Raptor

Ford Takes the Fun Out of Off-Roading with Trail Control for the 2019 Ford Raptor

Do you really want a robot calling the shots out there?

Off-roading can be a lot of fun - from exploring the great outdoors, to finding the right line through a challenging bit of terrain, to extracting every ounce of capability from your vehicle, it’s just the right activity to get away from it all. Now, Ford hopes to make it more accessible with its new Trail Control system for the 2019 F-150 Raptor, which the company likens to “cruise control for off-road driving.” Color us skeptical.

Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor

Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor

Ford Ranger Raptor Is Cool, Well Executed Off Roaded

One thing is for certain. The new Ford Ranger Raptor is cool, capable, and off-road ready right from the production line, and it’s definitely an interesting proposition even for big-truck-loving Americans.

Sizewise, it is a truck similar to the Colorado ZR. “Characterwise,” it is a dune-fighting fun machine designed for the most intense off-roading tasks. While we in the U.S. are still waiting for Ford to confirm that the Ranger Raptor will come, the rest of the world is basking in the greatness of the potent truck. The thing is that the Ranger Raptor for the rest of the world is actually powered by a small diesel engine - not something that’s very popular here, is it?

While I am among those who believe the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. will get a 2.3-liter EcoBoost, I have to tell you a number of reasons why you should not be disappointed even if we end up with the diesel Ranger Raptor.

Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000

Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000

Ford has since pulled the configurator down

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.

Ford Exec Says That There's No Hope for a Gas-Powered V-6 Ranger Raptor

Ford Exec Says That There’s No Hope for a Gas-Powered V-6 Ranger Raptor

We can still cross our fingers, but it looks like the ship has sailed on this one

The Ford Ranger Raptor has the makings of becoming one of the most popular Ford pickups in the industry. It’s essentially a smaller and presumably more affordable version of the F-150 Raptor. But as fascinating as the Ranger Raptor is, there is one point of contention surrounding the Ranger Raptor, specifically the absence of a gas-powered V-6 unit. Well, don’t get your hopes up because Ford doesn’t appear to have any plans of offering the Ranger Raptor with a gasoline or diesel-drinking V-6.

The stuntman’s emotions did hit the rockbottom for a second!

We all know how generous and humble Dwayne Johnson is, and here’s another instance to prove the same. The owner of the ‘People’s Elbow’ gifted a handsome, jacked-up Ford F-150 to his stunt double and cousin, Tanoai Reed. The two have been working together for the last 17 years, starting with Dwayne’s The Scorpion King in 2002.

Someone Has Already Rendered the Ford Focus Pickup

Someone Has Already Rendered the Ford Focus Pickup

It actually looks pretty darn good

The Ford Focus could be used as the basis for a compact, unibody pickup that the Blue Oval is looking to offer in the U.S. in the future. The rumored model was first mentioned by Automobile Magazine as a possible addition to Ford’s shifting product lineup in the country. As the company’s car lineup is about the go — the Focus and the Mustang are the only ones being spread — the rush to beef up its crossover, SUV, and pickup offerings begin. One of the reported models is the Focus-based compact, unibody pickup, and as is often the case with ground-breaking model developments like this one, it didn’t take long for renderings of the rumored pickup to surface.

It’s no longer a mystery that Ford is planning to relaunch the Ranger in the United States, but word has it an even smaller pickup truck will hit dealerships as early as 2022. This new hauler will be based on the fourth-generation Focus and will be produced in Mexico.

2019 Ford F-150 Limited Gets Plonked With Raptor’s Engine

After all, sharing is caring

Engine sharing is not a new concept in the industry, and the 2019 Ford F-150 is the latest to benefit from this. The ‘Limited’ trim of the F-150, expected to hit the roads later this year, gets a bigger engine from the Raptor. There’s a lot more to the eye than just the engine adaption, but will this affect the Raptor’s sales in any way?

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Ford F-150

The people’s truck and a heavy hauler

The F-150 just went through a thorough, mid-cycle update to help keep it relevant in a constantly changing market, and that’s good news as it came with a revitalized look and a little extra power for certain engines as well. When properly equipped, it can tow as much as 13,200 pounds while the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 will manage to pull 26 mph on the higher (the 3.5-liter gets 25 mpg.) The point is, the F-150 is a true, all-American pickup that deserves some time on display here at TopSpeed headquarters. And, we’ve hand picked a few of our favorite wallpapers to share with you. Check them out and feel free to download one or two for yourself.

Ford's New 7.3-Liter V-8 May Go Old-School with Pushrod Valve Actuation

Ford’s New 7.3-Liter V-8 May Go Old-School with Pushrod Valve Actuation

Overhead cams could be a thing of the past for Ford heavy duty trucks

It’s no secret that ford needs to replace its 6.8-liter, Triton, V-10 that’s currently found in heavy-duty trucks. It was originally expected to be replaced by a 7.0-liter V-8, but a reliable source to someone at SVT Performance has opened the door to speculation that we could eventually see a 7.3-liter V-8 that rocks out a cast-iron block and pushrod valve actuation. That’s right, a step backward from the OHC setup automakers have been using a lot lately.

Ford F-150 Raptor Goes High Tech For Enhanced Off-Road Worthiness

Ford F-150 Raptor Goes High Tech For Enhanced Off-Road Worthiness

Adaptive shocks and a trail-ready cruise control!

First hitting the scene in 2009, the Ford F-150 Raptor is essentially a big, bad, burly variant of the ever-popular F-150 pickup truck, offering off-road enthusiasts all the trimmings for tackling Mother Nature’s trickiest terrain. Upgrades include a more aggressive exterior, a taller ride height, and a monster motor under the hood, and now, Ford is improving the package even further with fresh high-tech suspension bits.

Ford to Offer More Trucks and SUVs and Fewer Sedans in the US

Ford to Offer More Trucks and SUVs and Fewer Sedans in the US

It’s time to say goodbye to the Fusion, Fiesta, Taurus, and C-Max

Ford’s lineup in the U.S. will look dramatically different in a few years, the automaker announced in its Q1 financial report. According to Ford, crossovers, SUVs, and pickups will make up a majority of its future lineup, in part because these segments provide the higher profits that the company needs to make money. Unfortunately, the floundering sales of sedans have made it dispensable, leaving Ford no choice but to scrap most of them with the exception of just two models: the Mustang and the Focus Active.

One Minute News: The U.S.-Spec Ford Ranger Won't be Offered in Single-Cab Form

One Minute News: The U.S.-Spec Ford Ranger Won’t be Offered in Single-Cab Form

You can order it without a bed, though, so there’s that

When Ford showed off the new Ranger, it showed nothing but potential in terms of utility and everyday usefulness. It had damn near everyone wondering if Ford would go back to its roots and offer the new Ranger as a single-cab, two-door model with a longer bed. The hope was there, but according to a 2019 model year VIN document sent to the NHTSA, the Ranger will only offer four doors in either supercab or supercrew body styles. Both supercab and supercrew models will be available with rear- or all-wheel drive, but supercab models options with “bed delete” will only be offered with rear-wheel drive. That’s right; you’ll be able to turn the new ranger into a flatbed. As expected, the only engine on offer is a 2.3-liter four-banger paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

One Minute News: Ford Ranger Raptor to Cost Between $55,000 and $58,000

Ford has announced that pricing for the Ford Ranger Raptor in Australia will start out at AU$74,990 or about $57,457 at current exchange rates. It has also be said that Thailand prices will come in at 1.699 million bhat or about $54,400 at current exchange rates.

The Ranger Raptor is available with Ford’s new ten-speed automatic transmission and a brand-new 2.0-liter diesel that’s good for 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Ford raised the bar yet again when it moved the Raptor name over to the new F-150 design. Along with the new design came that lightweight aluminum bodywork, and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. That engine, as fate would have it, raised a lot of concern over power output. That concern was short-lived, however, once Ford announced that it delivers some 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque when drinking on some 93 octane. That’s a hell of a lot more than the outgoing 6.2-liter V-8 at 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet. Ford even went so far as to strengthen the Raptor’s frame – it cut back on the weight reduction, naturally, but it’s still 500 pounds lighter than the outgoing model. Throw in thinks like Fox Racing shocks, BFGoodrich All-Terrain K02 Tires, and a whole host of other off-road goodies and you’ve got yourself an off-road demon. Even if you don’t have one in your driveway, you can have it on your desktop, so check out our awesome selection of wallpapers.

Comparison: Is the GMC Sierra AT4 a Solid Alternative to the Ford F-150 Raptor?

Comparison: Is the GMC Sierra AT4 a Solid Alternative to the Ford F-150 Raptor?

We compare GMC’s new truck to the most hardcore hauler out there

GMC just launched a new-generation GMC Sierra that redefines the luxury pickup truck segment through its imposing looks, premium interior, and segment-first carbon-fiber bed. But General Motors also used the new Sierra to introduce a new model line for GMC vehicles. It’s called the AT4 and adds extra features inside and out and a lift kit. With the Sierra more capable in off-road terrain in this setup, truck enthusiasts can’t help but wonder whether the AT4 is a good proposition for the mighty Ford F-150 Raptor. To answer this question, I’m going to have a closer look at both trucks in the comparison below.

Believe it or Not, Ford Considered a 13-Speed Automatic Transmission for the Ranger Raptor

Believe it or Not, Ford Considered a 13-Speed Automatic Transmission for the Ranger Raptor

What’s the cut-off for this gear growth?

Ford Australia’s new 2019 Ranger Raptor has made a splash over the last week with its debut in Thailand for the Asia Pacific market. It packs a 2.0-liter turbodiesel and Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission it co-developed with General Motors. Just a few years ago, the industry thought eight-speed automatics were revolutionary. But according to John Fallu, the transmission and driveline engineering manager for Ford Asia Pacific, his team explored the possibility of 12- and 13- speed automatic gearboxes.

It’s also beautiful in a rough and rugged way

It’s only February, but doesn’t it feel like we’ve already seen a good amount of new pickups make their debuts this year? It’s hard to complain, though, because these new pickups are showing that they have a lot to offer. The most revealing among these new trucks is the Ford Ranger Raptor, the off-road version of the Ranger pickup that looks like it’s ready to rumble on any road surface it meets. It’s hard not to get excited about the Ranger Raptor, especially when you watch this hype video of the gnarly beast going bonkers in the desert. Not only does it look like it’s at home in that environment, but if you didn’t know any better, you would think that it’s smashing records at the Baja Rally. I never knew a pickup could make my knees weak like the Raptor Ranger just did.

Ford Ranger Raptor Could be US-Bound but Will Drop the Diesel Drivetrain

It’s not a slam dunk that we’ll see it here, but cross your fingers that we do

The Ford Ranger is coming to the U.S. That’s good news for a lot of people who have been clamoring for a smaller pickup to complement the much larger F-150. But there’s the potential for better news on the horizon with the potential of a Ranger Raptor hitting the scene. The souped-up pickup made its debut in Bangkok last week, and there’s growing momentum that we might see it in American soil at some point in the future. Maybe.
