2018 Ford Destination Expedition by Hulst Customs

Ford’s do-everything SUV now has more functions to go along with a beefed-up appearance

The Ford Expedition is headed to the 2018 SEMA Auto Show in two different guises. One of these two Expedition creations goes by the name "Destination Expedition," and it comes by way of Hulst Customs. The noted tuner developed its program with an eye towards turning the Expedition into the “ultimate SUV.” It features extensive upgrades in the exterior and interior, to go with a number of technical additions. The result is a go-anywhere version of the SUV that lives up to its Expedition name.

Sorry Folks, Ford Has No Plans to Bring the 2019 Ranger Raptor to U.S. Roads

Sorry Folks, Ford Has No Plans to Bring the 2019 Ranger Raptor to U.S. Roads

The Ranger Raptor Will Not Come To The U.S. So Be Sad

While I did write extensively about the possible Ford Ranger Raptor Diesel reaching the U.S., it seems that Ford doesn’t have any plans to introduce theRanger Raptor to the free world. In his talk with Hermann Salenbauch, Ford Performance Director, Autoblog journalists found out that the Raptor “was really developed for locations where the F-150 isn’t available or popular so that all regions could have a Raptor.”

Obviously, reading between the lines shows that the Ranger Raptor isn’t actually coming to the U.S.

2018 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Concept

Special edition F-150 pays tribute to Harley-Davidson’s 115th anniversary

Ford and Harley-Davidson have established a unique partnership in the auto industry. The latter has a long history of building custom and special edition H-D branded trucks, and the latest example of that is the 2019 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Concept Truck. Developed as a special edition version of the F-150 Super Crew trim, the new F-150 Harley-Davidson Concept was created with the help of Tuscany, a subsidiary of Fox Factory Inc. and a Ford Motor Company specialty vehicle manufacturer in the personal-use segment, to help celebrate the bikemaker’s 115th anniversary.

Rumor Says the New 2020 Ford Bronco Could Get a Seven Speed Manual Transmission

The 2020 Bronco will be a hoot-and-a-half to drive in this setup

At a time when automakers are only producing automatic transmission cars, the Blue Oval is saving the three-pedal setup from going extinct. As per a report, the upcoming Ford Bronco could possibly get a manual transmission system in a few versions. If true, this makes Ford one of the very few automakers that still offer manual transmissions in an SUV or a truck.

One of the four models is the Explorer Limited Luxury Edition, a unique take on the popular Explorer SUV that adds appearance upgrades on the vehicle’s exterior and interior.

Ford Reveals Fastest Police Vehicle In America

Ford Reveals Fastest Police Vehicle In America

You don’t want to see this police cruiser in your rear-view mirrors

Ford has released the Police Interceptor Utility, considered by the Michigan State Police as the fastest police car available for 2019. The new Interceptor is based on the yet-to-be-unveiled Explorer SUV. It replaces the outgoing Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility model and the Taurus-based Police Interceptor sedan. The new Police Interceptor Utility is more than just a fast law enforcement vehicle; it’s also loaded with state-of-the-art technology the likes of which the production version of the new Explorer won’t have. That comes with the territory of being a cop car.

Ford Explorer Desert Copper Edition

For those who want a well-dressed Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer was well-represented at the 2018 Texas State Fair after Ford brought a pair of special edition versions, including the Explorer Desert Copper Edition. Created to diversify its Explorer lineup, the Desert Copper Edition is based on the XLT trim of the SUV. The special edition Explorer comes with a number of upgrades in the exterior and interior. The automaker hasn’t said if the Explorer Desert Copper is going to be available to the public, but with the popularity of SUVs these days, don’t be surprised if the Explorer Desert Copper Edition arrives in a dealership near you sooner than later.

2018 Ford F-150 Raptor V-8 PaxPower

2018 Ford F-150 Raptor V-8 PaxPower

When Dreams Come True

Purists never got behind the idea of the Ford F-150 V-6 EcoBoost. They wanted a new Ford F-150 Raptor V-8. Now, thanks to PaxPower, they have it. Yet, if the world only acted on the wishes of purists and classic truck lovers the F-150 would have never become an aluminum built truck, the three-speed auto would have never become a 10-speed tranny, and we would still be hauling our asses in trucks powered by V-8s with sad specific outputs. Now we don’t. Now, we can enjoy a modified Ford F-150 V-8 Raptor with a supercharged engine churning out the insane power of 758 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. That is what PaxPower did to what once was a 2018 Ford F-150 Platinum V-8 truck.

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.

Fast and Furious Star Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock Gifts His Stunt Double a Jacked-Up F-150

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.

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.

Video of the Day: Watch A Sleeper-Spec Ford Territory Crossover Lay The Smackdown At The Drag Strip

Video of the Day: Watch A Sleeper-Spec Ford Territory Crossover Lay The Smackdown At The Drag Strip

Turbocharged to 870 horsepower!

Hey! Wake up! It’s time for your weekly dose of sleeper awesomeness, this time coming from the fine folks over at 1320 Video. What we’ve got here would appear to be a rather benign-looking Ford Territory, a mid-size crossover produced between 2004 and 2016 by Ford Australia. Sure, it’s got big bronzed wheels and a window banner, but admit it - you wouldn’t look twice at this thing if it pulled up next to you on race day.

Of course, that would all change as soon as the lights turned green. That’s because the owner of this unassuming Blue Oval packed nearly 900 horses under the hood thanks to a stonking big turbocharger with all the trimmings. Paired with the same 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder that Ford installed at the factory; it’s a rip-roaring beast of a drag machine, churning the rubber with such vigor it smokes the tires halfway down the strip. At one point, the driver even has a bit of a moment, going sideways off the track in his enthusiasm.

All told, this daily-driven full-interior streetcar can manage 9’s - that is, if it actually manages to hook up. Clearly, the Aussie’s know what’s what when it comes to making big power and low passes. Oh yeah, and check out the license plate, which reads “XSPSI.” Nice touch!

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.

The Ranger Raptor is one Mean Little Truck

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.
