Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969

Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969

A crazy, mid-engine Ford Mustang BOSS 429 existed and it almost went into production back in 1969

Performance versions of the Ford Mustang have always been sought-after, by collectors. We have models like the original Shelby GT350 R, Shelby GT500, or BOSS 302, but for many, the top of the cherry, the big daddy, is considered to be the BOSS 429. But for all its performance credentials, the BOSS 429 had weight-distribution issues, which is why, in 1969, Ford decided to experiment with a mid-engine version of the BOSS 429, dubbed the LID Mustang.

2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition

Is it fair that blue paint and some stripes are priced at over $12k?

Did you notice that automakers will use absolutely every possible opportunity they have to reveal a new special edition?

This is exactly the case with the latest Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition announced for the 2022 model year.

2022 Ford Ranger Splash Package

2022 Ford Ranger Splash Package

The Splash Package from the 90s is back, and it lands right at home on the new Ford Ranger!

Ford offered the "Splash" package for the first time back in the 1990s when it was offered as an update for the Ranger pickup. Then, in June, 2021, the company trademarked the name again and initial rumors said it will be used for an electric pickup. Turns out those rumors were false, as the Splash is offered once again as an update package for the 2022 Ranger.

2022 Ford GT '64 Heritage Edition

2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition

Another Ford GT Heritage Edition that pays homage to a yesteryear model; this time, the 1964 Ford GT/105 prototype

Ford has just showcased its seventh Ford GT Heritage Edition – the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition, to be exact. Just like all the previous Heritage models, this one pays tribute to one specific car from the past, and in this case, it’s the 1964 Ford GT prototype.

This 2022 GT Heritage Edition is finished in Wimbledon White paint with Antimatter Blue graphics and rides on 20-inch Antimatter carbon fiber wheels finished in blue. Behind those wheels sit Brembo brake calipers lacquered in silver with black graphics. The rest of the exterior is littered with carbon fiber components, including the following:

Front splitter Side sills Mirror stalks Engine louvers Rear Diffuser

Meanwhile, inside the GT Heritage Edition, you’ll find seats wrapped in Lightspeed Blue Alcantara with the GT logo placed on the seating surfaces and head restraints. The instrument panel is wrapped in Ebony leather Light Speed Blue Alcantara, with Antimatter blue accents on the dash, door bezels, and seat X-braces. Finally, there’s healthy doses of carbon fiber where appropriate. As for pricing, well that’s a complete mystery, but expect it to be well above the standard GT’s entry price of $500,000. This car will be shown off to the public at Monterey Car Week next to the only remaining 1964 Ford GT prototype in existence: the GT/105.

2021 Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition - Is It Really That Bad Ass?

2021 Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition - Is It Really That Bad Ass?

The Ranger Raptor Special Edition will be built in limited numbers and will come with aesthetic upgrades, bigger tires, wider track, and a taller ride height

Riding high on the success of the Ranger in Europe, Ford launched a special edition of the truck based on the Ranger Raptor. Called the Ranger Raptor Special Edition (no marks for creativity there), the truck comes with aesthetic upgrades and wide tracks. It rides on the same drivetrain without any power bumps. The automaker is pushing it as a ‘badass’ edition of the truck. But, what’s so badass about it?

2021 Ford Expedition XL STX

2021 Ford Expedition XL STX

The five-seater now starts at $50,000; 3,000 bucks cheaper than the previous starting price

There are many of us who want a full-size SUV but not the third row. In fact, you might just keep the third row folded always because you need the cargo space more than the seats. If you fall in that category, Ford has a solution for you.

For the 2021 model, the company has released a two-row version of its Expedition SUV that not only gives you the practicality of a full-size SUV, but also shaves $3,000 off the sticker price. It is offered as the new base trim within the lineup, but comes with enough features to keep you happy.

2021 Ford GT Studio Collection

It’s our first look at how Ford is opening the GT to all sorts of aesthetic possibilities

Ford Performance, in collaboration with Ford GT manufacturer Multimatic, has released the first Ford GT Studio Collection model, and it is a stunner. Dressed in a black paint finish with an orange racing stripe and matching accents all around, this Ford GT is the first of 40 Studio Collection variants that Ford will build over the next two years of the supercar’s production. A total of 20 units will be unveiled this year, and each unit will have an exclusive look that highlights the highly personalized nature of the Ford supercar. The Blue Oval hasn’t revealed how much each model of the Ford GT Studio Collection costs, but given the exclusivity of each unit, don’t be surprised if the cost of owning one far exceeds the GT’s $500,000 sticker price.

2021 Ford Ranger Tremor

This is Ford’s way of making up for the Ranger Raptor

Customers in the U.S. have been craving the Ranger Raptor since it was announced for other markets. Ford has denied giving the pleasure so far, but there is news of the Ranger Raptor finally heading Stateside when the 2022 Ranger arrives. Since that is still some time away, the Blue Oval has decided to give us a taste of what to expect by introducing the Tremor off-road package for the mid-size pickup truck. While it is no Raptor, it is a lot more capable than the existing FX4 off-road package. Ford has priced the package at $4,290, but the catch is that is won’t be available on all the trims.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1

The Mustang Mach 1 returns after 17 years with Shelby upgrades

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a higher performance version of the sixth-generation Mustang. A limited-edition model that revives the Mach 1 nameplate after 17 years, the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 bridges the gap between the GT and the Shelby GT350 models. It’s essentially a Mustang GT with a more aggressive exterior and some parts from the Shelby GT350. Power comes from the standard 5.0-liter V-8 from the GT, but output matches that of the limited-edition Bullitt model. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is the fifth Mach 1 pony car produced since the late 1960s.
