2019 Ford F-150 SC 650HP by Roush Performance
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.
Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor
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.
2019 Ford Mustang Stage 3 by Roush Performance
Roush Performance has begun taking pre-orders for its new 2019 Roush Stage 3 Mustang. The modified version of the 2019 Ford Mustang comes with a new supercharger kit that Roush developed in-house. According to the tuner, the package can turn the Mustang into a completely different animal, one that can produce a staggering 710 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque - figures that make it the most powerful Mustang program that Roush Performance has developed.
2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition
As if the Ford GT isn’t awesome enough in its own right, Ford is adding to the supercar’s appeal with the launch of a new Heritage Edition showcase, one where the GT gets dressed up in the iconic light blue and orange Gulf Oil livery. The new Heritage Edition model is a fitting follow-up to the red Ford GT Heritage Edition that Ford introduced earlier this month. The Gulf Oil livery isn’t the only unique feature of this new special edition GT; it also comes with a number of exclusive touches, all added to ensure that this special edition model upholds the exclusivity attached to the Gulf Oil livery.
2021 Ford Bronco II aka "Baby Bronco"
In March 2018, Ford unveiled its plans for the next two years, which includes many new models and a shift toward crossovers in the U.S. The bigger news includes dropping most cars in favor of SUVs, a hybrid version of the F-150 truck, and a revival of the iconic Bronco. The latter will be joined by a smaller sibling with similar boxy cues. A baby Bronco!
Described as a vehicle "designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends," the compact SUV was partially revealed in a teaser photo. And based on what we can see, it’s aimed directly at Jeep. Specifically, while the new-generation Bronco will go against the all-popular Wrangler, the smaller crossover will take on the Renegade. There’s no official name for it yet, and details remain a mystery, but it could roll out for the 2021 model year.

2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steeda
After appearing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new Ford Mustang Bullitt, as well as the original (who left the U.S. first time ever for its stint at Goodwood) left a mark on the gearheads of the world. Particularly those in the U.S. No wonder that the tuning company Steeda, already well known for its Mustang projects, partnered with Galpin Auto Sports and McQueen Racing to deliver the most amazing Mustang Bullitt. This is the Ford Mustang Bullitt by Steeda - it can be a 500 horsepower N/A beast, an 800 horsepower Hellcat killer, or a track-worthy toy with a roll cage. Steeda offered a comprehensive tuning package for the Mustang Bullitt. However, it seems that it only added subtle exterior additions nearing the latest Mustang to its movie star grandfather more than Ford has ever done before.
2019 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet
The Mustang Cobra Jet is now known as Ford’s factory-built drag racer, but the "Cobra Jet" badge was actually created for a 7.0-liter V-8 engine back in 1968. This is also the year when the Blue Oval produced 50 lightweight Mustangs for the said engine and shipped six of them to Holman Moody and Bill Stroppe to be prepared for NHRA racing. Fifty years later and Ford is celebrating the event with a special-edition Cobra Jet model.
The first Mustang-based drag racer since 2016, this Cobra Jet comes with all the goodies you’d expect to find on such car. There’s a revised body that looks similar to the facelifted sixth-gen model, skinny wheels up front and fat tires to the rear, a competition-spec interior, and a massively supercharged V-8. Making things even better, it’s the quickest and most powerful Mustang that Ford has developed specifically for drag racing in history.

2019 Ford Focus ST
After seven successful years on the market, the third-generation Ford Focus was replaced by a brand-new hatchback. Although it’s too early to say whether the new model will be as successful as its predecessor, it has many features to brag about, starting with a new platform that will underpin several Ford vehicles in the future. It also boasts a sportier exterior, new tech inside the cabin, and a revised engine lineup. With the standard Focus on its way to dealerships as of 2018, it’s time to talk about the RS model. The performance-oriented model might arrive by the end of the year and rumors and renderings are already making headlines on the internet.
Ford’s very own competitor for the all-popular Volkswagen Golf GTI, the Focus ST will benefit from all the cool features of the new Focus, but it will receive a few extra features inside and out. The sportier exterior with more aggressive cues will be joined by an exclusive interior, while its engine will provide the most power in an ST model yet. Until the next-generation Focus RS arrives, the ST will sit at the top of the range in terms of performance and pricing. Let’s take a closer look at what we already know about this car in the speculative review below.
Update 8/15/2018: The next-gen Ford Focus ST prototype has finally been caught on camera. Check out our special spy shot section below to check it out for yourself.
2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition by Steeda
Noted Ford tuner Steeda is coming out with a special edition Mustang that’s named after Steve McQueen. Officially called the Steeda Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition, the tuned muscle car is based on the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, a car that is teeming with exclusivity. But the Steeda Mustang Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition is on another level, and it’s all thanks to the collaboration involving Steeda, McQueen Racing, Galpin Auto Sports, and Chad McQueen, the only son of the iconic Hollywood megastar. Only 300 units of the Bullitt Steve McQueen Edition will be released per year, making it one of the most sought-after aftermarket Mustangs in the business today.
2019 Ford Territory
Although it will never come to the U.S. in this guise (or any other I am afraid), I feel that we should know all there is to know about the new Ford Territory. This very car may showcase the future of Ford crossovers. Revealed for the Chinese market only, the Ford Territory is actually a reimagination of the famous Territory sold in Australia. However, unlike the Australian car which was a full-fledged Ford product, the newest Ford Territory is actually a rebadged JMC Yusheng S330. Ford developed it with Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) to give Chinese customers another option in the sea of similar compact SUVs available there.
2018 Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition
Twenty-seven years ago, in 1991, John Hennessey began modifying cars with the goal of maximizing their potential well beyond what automakers were able to, or wanted to do. Since then, Hennessey has become a household name in the auto world, and to celebrate the company’s 10,000th tuning creation, Hennessey is rolling out 19 units of the Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition.
2019 Ford Mondeo
The Ford Mondeo is spending a lot of time in front of the cameras these days. After being spotted frolicking in the snow in Sweden a few months ago, the Mondeo is back doing test runs, this time in the friendlier climate of Southern Europe. It’s also a different body type — it’s a wagon! — than the Mondeo prototype a few months ago, but the location of the camouflage remains the same, so the front and rear sections are still matters of speculation. Still, we get a good look at the Mondeo wagon’s entire body, giving us an indication of what to expect when it comes out.
2018 Ford Eagle Squadron Mustang GT
The Ford Eagle Squadron Mustang GT made landfall at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, proving that even American muscle can make a splash at one of the U.K.’s most esteemed auto events. As surprising as it is to see a Mustang get prime placement at the Goodwood House, the one-off Mustang’s debut at the event makes a lot of sense considering the fact that the muscle car was designed to pay tribute to the famed Eagle Squadron and the Royal Air Force’s 100th anniversary. Following its debut, the Mustang Eagle Squadron Mustang GT is home stateside where it will be auctioned off at the annual Experimental Aircraft Association fundraiser on July 26.
2018 Heavy Metal Model A
One of the most amazing things about car customization is that there are no rules about how it should be done or what you can and can’t do. And that means if you’ve got the skills and the imagination, you can turn any four-wheeled machine into a rolling piece of art, an expression of creativity capable of rivaling anything you might see hung in a museum or played on the radio. Such is the case with this hot rod Ford Model A, created by the talented folks on Velocity’s original series Speed Is The New Black for a rock star client.
