PostHeaderIcon Tuscany Brings Two Modified Ford F-150s to 2018 Chicago Auto Show

Ford didn’t limit itself to regular production vehicles at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. Rather, it invited Tuscany to participate in the fun. Tuscany is an independent aftermarket coachbuilder that contracts with Ford to upgrade trucks with special packages and performance modifications before selling them at Ford dealerships and covered under Ford’s new-vehicle warranty.

Well, Tuscany brought two Shelby-branded trucks to the show – both of which are lifted 4WD modes, but with very different personalities.

Continue reading for more on the trucks.

2018 Ford F-150 Shelby by Tuscany

“The biggest upgrade, however, is found under the hood”

This truck started life as a 2018 F-150 Super Crew with the Lariat trim package and 5.0-liter V-8. Tuscany then modified the brand new truck by adding a BDS suspension lift, 20-inch wheels wrapped in BFG All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, upgraded Fox Racing Shocks, and several unique pieces of bodywork that include a new wire-mesh grille, functional ram air hood scoop, fender flares, Shelby graphics, and a tonneau cover.

The biggest upgrade, however, is found under the hood. Tuscany added a Shelby supercharger and high-flow fuel injectors to the 5.0-liter V-8. It takes the relatively docile 395 horsepower and cranks it to 755 horsepower. Combined with the 10-speed automatic transmission and stout 3.73 final drive ratio, this truck can undoubtedly move.

“This particular conversion costs $46,470 – and that’s on top of the F-150’s cost.”

While we’re not terribly big fans of the outlandish exterior upgrades, the extra horsepower is unquestionably a big plus, especially considering the upgrades don’t void the F-150’s warranty. For those who really like the truck, Tuscany sells its upgraded F-150s through local Ford dealerships. Be prepared to pony up some hefty cash, though. This particular conversion costs $46,470 – and that’s on top of the F-150’s cost. This particular truck originally cost $61,495 and now costs a whopping $107,965.

“Tuscany had its way, however, and now the truck looks like a Hot Wheels model.”

Like the truck above, this truck started life as a convention 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor with nothing special about it. Tuscany had its way, however, and now the truck looks like a Hot Wheels model.

The truck rides on a Shelby suspension lift with 18-inch alloy wheel sand BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM tires. The Raptor’s front bumper is replaced with a Shelby steel bumper with LED off-road lights and shackle mounts. The hood also gets the Tuscany touch with the functional ram air hood scoop.

Tuscany added Shelby graphics to the rocker panels, along with Amp Research power running boards. The bed also got plenty of attention thanks to a sports bar with off-road lights and mounts for two spare tires. The rear bumper is also steel with LED lighting and shackle mounts for off-road recovery situations. Red and white Shelby decals adorn the windshield, rear fenders, and tailgate for that one-off look. Inside, the truck features embroidered leather seats with the Shelby Baja Raptor logo.

“This particular conversion costs $49,295 on top of the truck’s original MSRP of $68,165”

Of course, Tuscany didn’t leave the Raptor’s 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost V-6 alone. It took the twin-turbo V-6 from 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque to a whopping 525 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque.

Naturally, such modifications don’t come cheap. This particular conversion costs $49,295 on top of the truck’s original MSRP of $68,165. That brings the grand total to a spit-take worthy $117,460. Ouch!

PostHeaderIcon Flex Those Muscles: Ford F-150 is the Favorite Vehicle Among Members of the U.S. Military

Ford F-150

36 straight years. That’s how long the Ford F-150 has sat atop the best-selling truck list in the U.S. The F-150’s timeless popularity is unquestioned to the point that it’s not surprising to hear that the truck has also been named the best-selling vehicle among members of the U.S. military. A study conducted by the United Services Automobile Association’s car buying service revealed the status of the F-150 among all branches of the U.S. military in 2017. It’s the latest accolade given to a model that also earned the 2018 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award for the fourth year in a row.


Flex Those Muscles: Ford F-150 is the Favorite Vehicle Among Members of the U.S. Military - image 700452
“The F-150’s popularity keeps on soaring, as shown by the study done by USAA auto analyst Jimmy Spears.”

There’s no stopping the Ford F-150’s continued dominance in the U.S. market. That’s been the case since the model debut in the late 70’s. If anything, the F-150’s popularity keeps on soaring, as shown by the study done by USAA auto analyst Jimmy Spears.

The recognition wasn’t lost on the automaker, which has helped the military in a variety of roles and functions throughout the years. “We are proud and humbled that those who protect and defend our country choose (the) Ford F-Series,” Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager, said in a statement. “(The) F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body is designed to serve customers who are used to performing in the harshest of environments and who rely on the capability, durability, and functionality delivered consistently by Built Ford Tough.”

The F-150’s popularity is largely tied to Ford’s ability to keep reinventing and improving the model after all of its years in the market. For the 2018 model, the F-150 received a number of notable upgrades, specifically the addition of a new diesel variant that uses a 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo V-6 engine that has 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque at its disposal. The new diesel mill is the sixth engine in the F-150 lineup. Its inclusion coincides with other updates for the pickup, including an updated exterior, new technology, and more wheel choices.


Flex Those Muscles: Ford F-150 is the Favorite Vehicle Among Members of the U.S. Military - image 700450
“In 2017 alone, Ford’s F-Series sold a staggering 896,764 models in the U.S.”

The new updates should help the F-150
maintain its dominance in the pickup truck market. As well received as the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ram 1500 were when they debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, both models still have a long way to go to catch the F-150 in the sales charts. In 2017 alone, Ford’s F-Series sold a staggering 896,764 models in the U.S. By comparison, sales of the Chevrolet Silverado in the same year maxed out at 585,864 units while sales of Ram models “only” added up to 500,723 units.

Given the F-150’s place in the hearts and minds of Americans, including young and old military personnel, don’t expect to see any changes on that list. The F-150 is still the king of pickups in the U.S.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Posts Weak Profits, Aluminum Costs Partially To Blame

Ford Motor Company posted a profit for the fourth quarter of 2017, but the numbers aren’t as impressive as hoped. The Blue Oval is placing part of the blame on rising commodity costs.

Continue reading for the full story.

The Full Story


Ford Posts Weak Profits, Aluminum Costs Partially To Blame - image 763626
“The widespread use of aluminum in Ford's vehicles means that the rising cost of the metal is affecting the company's bottom line more prominently than its steel-heavy rivals.”

While still in the green, Ford missed the mark when it came to its quarterly net profit, resulting in disappointment among investors. Ford estimates that rising materials costs and currency volatility will end up costing the company as much as $1.6 billion this year. Ford’s stock price took a dive following the announcement, tumbling after a one-year high.

One of the main culprits behind the shrunken profit is the rising cost of aluminum,which saw a 20-percent price increase in the last year, and an 11-percent increase since mid-December. Meanwhile, steel is also up, with prices rising 9 percent in the last year. If the Trump administration decides to levy tariffs on aluminum and steel imports, prices are expected to rise even higher.

Aluminum is Ford’s lightweight material of choice. It’s ideal for keeping vehicle curb weight low, which helps with both performance and fuel economy, but it’s also more than three times as expensive as steel.

“Aluminum is ideal for keeping vehicle curb weight low, which helps with both performance and fuel economy, but it's also more than three times as expensive as steel.”

The widespread use of aluminum in Ford’s vehicles means that the rising cost of the metal is affecting the company’s bottom line more prominently than its steel-heavy rivals. For example, one of Ford’s most important models, the F-150 pickup truck, is now made with an all-aluminum body, which shaves an impressive 700 pounds off the curb weight. Obviously, though, it also requires a good amount of the metal to produce, and with the F-150 representing nearly 35 percent of the brand’s sales in the U.S., a rise in aluminum costs will put a big dent in profits. Practically all of Ford’s profit came from trucks and SUVs sold in the North American market last year.

“When you looks at Ford in the context of the other automakers, aluminum drives a lot of their volume and I think that is the cause,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting at auto consultancy LMC Automotive, in an interview with Reuters.

To make matters worse, there’s been a steady decline in new-vehicle sales as of late, with U.S. numbers seeing a 2-percent dip last year.

Meanwhile, rivals like General Motors and Fiat Chrysler remain unperturbed, either because they rely more on steel, or because they simply chose not to highlight the rising metal prices as much as Ford.

PostHeaderIcon Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6 by Hennessey Performance

2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6x6 by Hennessey Performance

How do you make a Ford F-150 Raptor any more awesome? Hennessey Performance has a great answer – stick an extra axle under an elongated cargo bed then add 150 horsepower. Hennessey is no stranger to making outlandish vehicles with insane levels of power. The Texas-based tuner has done several Raptor upgrades before, and naturally, their bread-n-butter is adding more horsepower to stock vehicles. But this marks the first time a 6×6 configuration has been involved.

Mercedes started the 6×6 trend in 2013 with the G63 6×6. Since then, a handful of aftermarket companies have followed those tracks. The idea behind the 6×6 setup is added traction, better payload and towing capacities, and shear badassery. One look at the G63 6×6 or the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 confirms that. Hennessey can’t confirm how well the VelociRaptor 6×6 handles in the dirt, however. The first example already has customer money on the hood. It’s also the same truck Hennessey took to the 2017 SEMA show. With SEMA over, Hennessey had only a few days to ship the truck to its owner in Florida.

Want to know more? Keep reading for details on the VelociRaptor 6×6.

What makes the 2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6 by Hennessey Performance special

  • 6×6 configuration with added rear axle
  • Lengthened cargo bed
  • Special rear leaf-spring & 4-link suspension
  • Larger Fox Racing shocks
  • 20-inch wheels
  • All-terrain tires
  • Hennessey front & rear bumpers
  • LED off-road lights
“It goes without saying the 6×6 portion of this build is the focal point”

It goes without saying the 6×6 portion of this build is the focal point. Hennessey achieved this by extending the F-150’s frame to accommodate another full axle and set of tires. The factory rear axle was moved rearward and a custom axle and pass-through differential rides ahead. That pass-through diff allows rotational power to turn its ring gear and the driveshaft that connects to the second rear differential. It’s a similar setup to an 18-wheeler.

The big-rig inspiration continues with the suspension system. A lengthened leaf spring pack spans between the axles and is mounted on a bar to the outside of the frame rails. A four-link setup locates each rear axle. Upgrade Fox Racing shocks similar to the Raptor’s stock shocks control the bounce of the one-off suspension system. To match the rear suspension, the independent front suspension was lifted for longer travel and higher ground clearance. Upgraded shocks are here too.

“Hennessey says the 6×6 conversion adds roughly 700 pounds to the Raptor’s curb weight, but the extra boost makes the 6×6 quicker than the stock truck”

Hennessey couldn’t leave the Raptor’s high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 alone, either. The engine normally makes 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, which are very healthy numbers for a small-displacement V-6 with a factory warranty. Hennessey already had its VelociRaptor 600 package developed for the Raptor, so the kit is added to the 6×6.

The engine upgrade includes a high-flow intake, a modified wastegate system, an air-to-air intercooler upgrade, a cat-back exhaust system, and a recalibration of the ECU. The result is 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 622 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Hennessey says the 6×6 conversion adds roughly 700 pounds to the Raptor’s curb weight, but the extra boost makes the 6×6 quicker than the stock truck. The sprint to 60 mph is said to happen in 4.9 seconds.


2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6x6 by Hennessey Performance - image 745590
“Hennessey is only building 100 examples for 2018”

Other modifications include custom front and rear bumpers, LED off-road lights, 20-inch wheels with Toyo Open Country R/T tires, a bed-mounted roll bar, and VelociRaptor 6×6 graphics on the door, fender, and tailgate. Inside, Hennessey will customize the interior to customer tastes, but the standard upgrade includes a numbered plaque with the vehicle’s build number.

Hennessey is only building 100 examples for 2018. The allotment is split 50-50, with half staying in the U.S. and half offered to customers around the world. Don’t expect to see a VelociRaptor 6×6 in the crowded streets of downtown London, but rather climbing up the sand dunes of the United Arab Emirates. Those folks in Dubai really love extravagant, over-the-top vehicles, after all.


2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6x6 by Hennessey Performance - image 745591

Paying for the 2018 VelociRaptor 6×6 takes Oil Sheik money, too. Pricing starts at $349,000 and goes up from there, depending on what options a customer adds.

So, what do you think? Would you drive a six-wheeled mega Raptor or is it too much vehicle for you to handle? Let us know in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon Ford And Roush Giving 2018 F-150 V-8 a Supercharged Punch

Remember the Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck from the 2017 SEMA show? Well, Ford Performance and Roush Performance are paring yet again to bring the Muscle Truck’s muscle to customers nationwide. Ford will offer a Roush supercharger kit for the 2018 F-150’s 5.0-liter V-8. The roots-style blower will be installed at Ford dealerships by ASE-certified Ford technicians and come with a Ford-backed warranty.

Don’t think the F-150’s V-8 is no dud from the factory. Rather, the 2018 update brought ten more horsepower and 13 more pound-feet of torque for a total of 395 and 400, respectively. Adding the supercharger is said to bring levels to 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque! That’s impressive. Other modifications would include a re-flash of the ECU, a new high-flow intake, and likely an exhaust system. Naturally, with this being a dealer add-on part, anybody willing to pony up the cash can get the extra power – regardless of what trim or cab configuration their 2018 F-150 has. Imagine a single cab, short bed F-150 with 640 horsepower. Oh, wait… one Ford dealership already has.

Ford has not released pricing for the Roush Performance supercharger kit or the shop fees for installation. We do know the blower will become available sometime in early 2018.

Halloween may have come and gone, but it’s never too late to explore the weird, the bizarre, and the downright frightening things that go bump in the night. If you’ve got the nerve, then we challenge you to look through these utterly profane vehicle renderings, courtesy of the good folks from Click Mechanic. Truth be told, no one is safe from the following strange creations – hybrids, muscle cars, imports, supercars, trucks, and even tractors get tossed into the blender with these seven unholy car mashups.

Call it madness, call it lunacy, call it outlandish… truth be told, we simply can’t look away! Hell, we’d actually argue that some of these creations are a bit, well, awesome (no, seriously). Either way, this is what happens when you give rendering artists free reign to mix and match from across the automotive spectrum. Naturally, we wanna know – which is these shocking mashups stands out the most to you? Let us know in the comments!

BMW i8 and Dodge Charger

Kicking things off, we got two wildly different takes on what it means to be fast. On one side, we’ve got the hybrid-powered BMW i8, a cutting-edge, CFRP-laden spaceship, while on the other side, we’ve got the old school muscle legend that is the Dodge Charger. I guess this is what happens when you put them together, complete with laser headlights and topped by a massive blower. It’s like a sustainable flamethrower, or an eco-conscious chainsaw. Wait, what?!

Bugatti Chiron and Volkswagen Beetle


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743947

Originally created as a vehicle for the people, the VW bug was about simplicity and low cost, offered as a modest approach to moving from A to B. Then we have the 1,500-horsepower, ultra-complex, quad-turbo Bugatti Chiron, a rolling statement of wealth and prestige that screams for attention. Talk about opposites, and yet, the pieces seem to fit together quite nicely here…

Pagani Huayra and First-Generation Chevrolet Camaro

Now this one is just flat out weird. We never, in a million billion years, would have thought about infusing the gorgeous top-shelf Italian styling of the Pagani Huayra with the good-old-boy chic of the original Chevy Camaro. This thing is an abomination, no doubt about it, and yet, we can’t look away. The flat black paint, the chrome trim, the mid-engine proportions, the polished hubcaps… would you call us crazy if we admitted to thinking this thing actually, kinda… works?! Yes, you would? Fair enough.

If you ask us, this is the kind of machine that would manage to simultaneously make your little niece squeal with delight over its cuteness, then go off and rip your dedicated sports car to shreds on the track. The body shape says Juke, while that front end and rear wing are pure GT-R. Maybe we shouldn’t give Nissan any ideas – after all, the 485-horse Juke-R is already a thing, so we know this mashup isn’t a total impossibility.

Ford GT and Ford Raptor

We know the Blue Oval has a variety of vehicles at its disposal when it comes to going fast. Wanna smash the local lap record? Climb aboard the Ford GT, a carbon fiber supercar made for domination at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. What about flying over rough terrain? In that case, saddle up in the Ford Raptor, an off-road specialist ready to conquer the rough stuff and all of Mother Nature. But what if you wanna do both?

Lamborghini Aventador and Lamborghini Tractor

Believe it or not, Lambo was originally a manufacturer of farm equipment before it branched off into making high-dollar exotics. In fact, the Italian marque is still making tractors today as Lamborghini Trattori. So then, the above is what you get when you do a little inter-company cross-pollination. All we see is the perfect conveyance for ripping mean four-wheel drifts across freshly plowed fields.

Take the jaw-dropping body of the Ferrari squared, then plop a dollop of Fiat MPV in the middle, and this is the result. Yikes. At least it’s one of the more, eh, practical Prancing Horses we’ve seen. Right? Maybe?!

PostHeaderIcon This Ford F-150 By CJ Pony Parts Is the Ultimate Rock Climber

The 2017 SEMA Show was packed with modified pickup trucks, but none was as spectacular as this EcoBoost-powered rock climber built by CJ Pony Parts. The aftermarket parts supplier has been a constant presence in Las Vegas in recent years, showcasing a restomod 1965 Ford Mustang built with TMI Products, a custom Focus ST with Ford, and a beefed up Mustang EcoBoost with Ford Performance. In 2017, CJ Pony Parts chose to stay away from the car performance realm and opted to create a stunning off-road-equipped F-150 pickup truck.

Already a solid truck thanks to its aluminum body, leading technology, and fuel-efficient engines, the F-150 is now able to tackle the Moab Easter Jeep Safari alongside the most hardcore Jeep Wranglers out there. CJ Pony Parts says that its goal with this build was to create something “that not only looked tough but can back up that look with massive off-road capability,” it seems that the result matches the description. Exterior upgrades are numerous, starting with Lund fender flares, custom two-tone paint with orange graphics, and a rear differential cover. There’s also a T-Rex grille; Rigid Radiance LED lights, Rock Slider side steps, and new Stealth Fighter and Honey Badger bumpers front and rear. The truck also features an Oracle Lighting ColorShift LED underbody lighting kit.

The list of accessories continues inside with a Raptor steering wheel with orange stitching, Ford Performance door sill plates, custom headrests with CJ Pony Parts logo, and orange accents on the dashboard, door panels, center console, and floor mats. But the really important upgrades were operated under the skin.

“Performance has been improved using a Borla dual side-exit exhaust system, and aFE Momentum GT Stage 2 cold air intake, and a Bully Dog GT Platinum gas tuner.”

This pickup truck uses the same 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic transmission as the production model, but there’s no word whether it’s the standard unit or the high-output version. The former generates 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet, while the latter cranks out 450 horses and 510 pound-feet. But no matter the drivetrain, performance has been improved using a Borla dual side-exit exhaust system, and aFE Momentum GT Stage 2 cold air intake, and a Bully Dog GT Platinum gas tuner.

The enhanced off-road capability comes from a ReadyLift seven-inch lift kit with SST3000 shocks and Custom Power suspension by PA Powder Works. The standard wheels have been replaced by two-piece, forged 20-inch rollers wrapped in BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires. A spare wheel was mounted in the bed in case one goes flat while climbing rocks. Arguably the most off-road capable vehicle at the 2017 SEMA Show, CJ’s F-150 is a sight to behold!

PostHeaderIcon Hagerty Has These 2017-2018MY Cars On Track To Be Future Collectibles

2017 has been quite the year for the automotive industry. We’ve seen hypercars make their debuts. We’ve seen incredible advancements and electrification and autonomous driving technology. Heck, we’ve even seen deceased brands come back to life – shout out to TVR! – with a vengeance. One of the best parts of all these releases is that at some point, some of them will inevitably skip the depreciation curve and become collectible cars. The trick is figuring out which ones will be able to navigate down that road, and if you’re trying to do that, there’s no better source of authority in matters pertaining to the collector car market than Hagerty.

It’s safe to say that when the insurance company talks, all of our ears perk up. If it says that one of today’s models is on the inside track to be a future classic, there’s a good chance that it could turn into one. Ok, so enough small talk. Hagerty’s has already released its picks of 2017-2018 models that are trending on the right path. It’s not a guarantee that these cars will earn collectible status in the future, but having Hagerty’s stamp of approval goes a long way in shaping the opinions of car collectors all over the world.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1


2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - image 669656

Current price: $61,140

We’ll start with a car that’s expected to be a collectible in the future. There are no surprises here, at least not when the car in question is the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which has been described as the most powerful factory-built Camaro in history. It also comes with arguably the most comprehensive aerodynamic package ever given to a Camaro. The result is a car that not only tips the scales at 200 pounds less than its predecessor, but also has power numbers that add up to 650 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque. These figures translate to an acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds to 60 mph and 11.4 seconds at 127 mph to a quarter-mile. It may not be as powerful as the Challenger SRT Demon, but rest assured, Camaro collectors from all corners of the world would be smart to get the 2018 ZL1 while it’s price tag of just over $60,000 is still where it is now. Wait a few years and you might end up being forced to pay far more than that.

Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport


2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - image 667643

Current price: $65,450

It is a bit surprising that Hagerty did not include the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – or even the Challenger Hellcat – in its list. Is it possible that both Challenger models are overhyped? That’s a question for another time, though, because this spot is dedicated to the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. It’s not the most powerful Corvette in the market today – that would be the ZR1 – but the Corvette Grand Sport is arguably the best Corvette for your money. It’s priced at a shade over $65,000, and for that amount, you stand to get an all-American sports car that features a 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 460 horsepower on tap. Beyond the numbers, the Corvette Grand Sport also has the chops to handle its business against European sports car elite. Very few American-made sports cars are capable of doing that, but the Corvette Grand Sport can do it. Add the nostalgia that’s traditionally associated with Corvette models and the Grand Sport is shaping up to be one of the best sports car purchases today.

Fiat Abarth 124 Spider


2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth - image 667942

Price: $28,195

Is it a surprise that of the ten cars on this list, three of them are entry-level sports cars that cost somewhere in the vicinity of $30,000? I don’t think it is, especially when you see the three sports cars that Hagerty identified. One of them is the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider, the spiffy roadster that brought back the now-iconic 124 Spider name. It says a lot about the new 124 Spider’s predecessor that it lasted almost 20 years on the road (from 1966 to 1985) and is now considered a collectible piece. The new Spider isn’t the most powerful car out there, but with 164-horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, it has enough juice to become this generation’s go-to Italian roadster. It’s even capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, so that’s another feather in the cap of the sports car. Ultimately though, the new 124 Spider will be judged by how it’s going to handle the test of time. Can it live up to its predecessor’s status and become a collectible itself? It’s too early to say now, but give it 20 years, and the conversation could turn into which of the 124 Spiders is the more collectible version.

Mazda MX-5 Miata RF


2017 Mazda MX-5 RF Unveiled - image 670228

Price: $31,555

This feels like a cop-out answer given how Mazda’s MX-5 sports car is already considered a collectible. But to make it more interesting, Hagerty put the spotlight squarely on the shoulders of the MX-5 RF variant. I personally think it’s a good call because the MX-5 RF has history on its side for being the first MX-5 to feature a targa roof. Think about that for a second. The MX-5 has been around for almost 30 years and it’s only now that a targa roof version is created. Add that to the revered legacy of the sports car and this is probably one of Hagerty’s easiest calls. It doesn’t even matter that the MX-5 RF has a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G engine that pumps out 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. Those figures are just bonuses to what ultimately be the MX-5 RF’s legacy: it’s a Miata that has “first of its kind” attached to its name. That kind of distinction is tantamount to a fast-track to “collectible” status.

Toyota 86


2017 Toyota 86 - image 670728

Price: $26,500

I’m actually surprised by this one. Hagerty legitimately thinks the Toyota 86 has the potential to be a collectible car. It’s not that I don’t like the 86, but ever since it was released in 2012, the only thing that sticks to me about the 86 is how much Toyota has left – and continues to leave – off the table as far as allowing the car to reach its full potential. I think Toyota has short-changed the 86 to the point that the lack of any meaningful improvements in the five years it’s been in the market will hamper its long-term outlook as a collectible. For sure, it’s a great entry-level sports car that just about anyone can buy these days. But the 86 could’ve been more if Toyota had just given it more freedom to realize its sports car lineage. There’s still room for that to happen, but with the return of the Supra, it’s hard to imagine the 86 being more than what it already is. Again, it’s a good sports car to own. It just could’ve been a lot better. Regardless, Hagerty is a lot more bullish on its long-term outlook than I am so I’m going to trust its judgment on this one.

Audi TT-RS


2017 Audi TT-RS - image 673812

Price: $60,000

We’re going a segment up in the sports car market for the next two cars on this list. Unlike the Toyota 86, the inclusion of the Audi TT-RS on this list is far from a surprise. In fact, it’s another one of Hagerty’s easy calls. It’s true that the Mazda MX-5 Miata has garnered much of the attention as far as being one of the most engaging sports cars in the past 20 or so years. But let’s not sleep on the Audi TT-RS either because it’s just as distinctive in terms of driver engagement as the MX-5. It doesn’t even matter that the TT-RS costs twice as that of the MX-5. Their two sports cars that occupy two different segments, and more is that evident than the numbers the Audi can offer on the table. Think about it. It has 400 horsepower coming from a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-five engine. It’s got a sprint-to-60-mph time of 3.7 seconds. It’s even dressed like a proper sports car, thanks in large part to an aerodynamic kit that makes it look like a baby Audi R8. All plaudits aside, the TT-RS’s long-term outlook is bright because it really is a supercar dressed up in a sports car body. As far as “collectible” potential is concerned, the Audi TT-RS is dripping with it.

Porsche 718 Cayman


2017 Porsche 718 Cayman - image 673770

Price: $50,000

It’s hard to imagine a Porsche not having collectible potential. It’s even harder to imagine a Porsche not being a collectible when its name is taken from a legendary race car that won the 12 Hours of Sebring once and the Targa Florio three times. That’s what we have with the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman. It has turbocharged boxer engine that pumps out 300 horsepower and it’s got an assortment of Porsche’s class-leading technology at its disposal. The result is a sports car that not only serves as a cheap alternative to the Porsche 911, but just as important, it carries with it the legacy of a racer that lived up to its name. Hard to think that the 718 Cayman can’t do the same, right?

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio


2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - image 656131

Price: $73,000

We’re already up to the eighth car on this list and this is the first four-door model to make it. Goes to show how popular performance cars are as potential collectible cars. Is it a surprise that Hagerty identified the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as a potential future classic? I’m actually on the same page here, and it’s not just because I count myself as a fanboy of the Giulia Quadrifoglio. First, let’s talk about what’s at the heart of it: a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 that has the fingerprints of Ferrari all over it. The result is an output of 505 horsepower and a sprint-to-60-time of 3.8 seconds. Outside of the numbers, you have to look at its impact, not only as Alfa’s new flagship sedan but also as a representation of the automaker’s return to the US market. If the Giulia Quadrifoglio hits big here in the US, it has the credentials and the legacy to prove Hagerty right. I wouldn’t put it past Alfa Romeo to make that happen.

Ford SVT Raptor


2017 Ford F-150 Raptor - image 610255

Price: $50,000

Pick-up trucks are probably the last type of car you’d see on a “future collectible” list, and yet here we are. The Ford Raptor isn’t an old model – it’s only been around since 2010 – so it doesn’t have the legacy of a model like the Mazda MX-5 or even the Fiat 124 Spider. But in the short amount of time that it’s been around, it’s arguably become one of the most popular production pickups in the business. At the very least, the first-generation model of the Raptor is already being singled out as a potential collectible, and that model only went out of production a few years ago to give way to a second-generation model that’s already being touted as better in every conceivable way compared to its predecessor. This is the what the Ford SVT Raptor has done to the segment. If any of you have any doubts about the Raptor’s chances of turning into a collectible, try looking for one that’s for sale at a decent price. You might find it harder than you expected.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2


Chevy Colorado ZR2 Takes L.A. By Storm with Supercar Suspension - image 695946

Price: $40.995

It may not be as popular – or as big – as the Ford Raptor SVT, but the Chevrolet Colorado more than holds its own in the mid-size pickup segment where the ZR2 trim is holding court as one of the best picks in the market today. It’s not the most powerful pick-up, nor is it the cheapest. But it has a suite of tech and aerodynamic features –
dynamic shocks, electronic locking front/rear differentials, increased ride height, and widened track – that has it on Hagerty’s short list of potential future collectibles. You may not agree with it, but the insurance company has the pulse of this market and if it thinks that the Colorado ZR2 could have the same impact as the Raptor in its segment, then we could be looking at a spot-on prediction from Hagerty.

PostHeaderIcon The 2018 F-150 Earns Big With IIHS Safety Ratings – Except For One Thing

The Ford F-150’s skin might be made from recycled beer cans, but the full-size pickup scored very well in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s barrage of testing. Since it debuted in 2015, the current F-150 has scored a “Good” in all crash tests. But, things aren’t all rainbows and butterflies for the half-ton pickup. The 2018 F-150 is too short-sighted to earn the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick+. The reason: it can’t see well in the dark.

The IIHS rates the F-150’s headlights as “Poor” in all five of its tests.

Both the base halogen headlights in the lower-trimmed F-150 and the LED headlights in the more expensive models scored a “Poor” in visibility testing. The halogen lights’ low and high beams fall short in straightaway visibility on the left and right sides of the road. The low beams only give 149 feet of visibility on the right, and 89 feet on the left and the high beams only shine 412 feet and 317, respectively. In curves, the headlights perform even worse, providing an average of only 102 feet of visibility with the low beams and 148 feet with the high beams in the four different curve tests done by the IIHS.

Jumping up to the LED headlights don’t help the situation, though they perform a tab bit better. The low beams shine 323 feet on the right and 168 feet on the left, while the high beams shine 544 feet on the right and 428 feet on the left. In turns, the LED low beams illuminate an average of 135 feet ahead, and the high beams shine an average of 163 feet ahead. The unfortunate trade-off for the better performance is excessive glare for oncoming traffic with the low beams. They exceed the IIHS’ glare threshold between 94.8 and 187.9 percent. That’s not good.

There’s more to this story below.

Safety Ratings Are Big For Customers


The 2018 F-150 Earns Big With IIHS Safety Ratings – Except For One Thing - image 740101

It’s odd why Ford didn’t do any better. The IIHS has been testing headlights since 2016, and the F-150’s new-for-2018 front-end styling should have accounted for the evaluation. Of course, Ford isn’t the only automaker scoring low on this new test, but Ford certainly had the chance to make it right with the F-150’s 2018 refresh.

Sadly, the headlights have cost the 2018 F-150 the IIHS’ coveted Top Safety Pick+ award. The F-150 would have earned this rating for 2018 thanks to its new Front Crash Prevention technology. The optional Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go scored a “Superior” in the IIHS’ testing. The truck automatically and completely avoided rear-end crashes at 12 mph and 25 mph.

Still, the 2018 Ford F-150 earns the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick award, which is one level down from the Top Safety Pick+ award. And, aside from the headlights, the only other test criteria that didn’t meet a perfect score of “Good” was the ease-of-use of the rear-seat LATCH system, which earned a “Marginal.”

PostHeaderIcon Don’t Fall Out! Ford F-150’s Doors Can Fly Open

Ford is issuing a safety recall for roughly 1.3 million F-150 and Super Duties from 2015 to 2017 over concerns the door latch can become inoperable, which could lead to the door not opening, or worse, the door flying open while driving. Ford says two mechanical problems can lead to the condition. One, the latch could become frozen and two, the cable running from the inside handle to the latch can become kinked. In either scenario, serious safety problems arise.

Basically, it boils down to the door not latching or unlatching when it shouldn’t. That’s bad, especially if somebody needed to enter or exit quickly, say in an emergency. What’s worse, Ford says the door could appear closed, yet the latch be unsecured. That could lead the door to fling open while taking a turn. Forget to put a seatbelt on, and somebody is leaving the truck in a bad way.

Thankfully, Ford says it has no reports of injuries stemming from this problem but is replacing door latches on a select number of aluminum-bodied F-Series trucks. These include the current-generation F-150 built from March 2014 up through the new 2017 Super Duty built in 2016. The full list of recalled trucks is below. The recall covers 1,101,107 F-Series trucks in the U.S., 222.408 in Canada, and 21,090 in Mexico for a total of 1,344,605.

Ford’s solution to the problem is installing a “water shield” over the door latches to prevent water from getting inside. Ford didn’t specify whether the latches freeze due to rust or if actual ice was accumulating in colder weather. Regardless, Ford dealership technicians will inspect the parts and repair them if necessary.

The F-Series Trucks Under Recall

  • 2015-2017 F-150 built at Dearborn Assembly Plant from March 12, 2014 to December 31, 2016
  • 2015-2017 F-150 built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from August 11, 2014 to December 30, 2016
  • 2017 Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Assembly Plant from October 8, 2015 to September 1, 2016

Owners can also cross-reference their vehicles’ VIN with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website to find recall information specific to their vehicle.

PostHeaderIcon 4WD Systems Are More Complex Than You Think

The Ford F-150 Raptor is the undisputed king of off-roading pickups – at least in the full-size segment. And now with the Raptor having entered its second generation for 2017, Ford upped the ante with whiz-bang tech that makes this Baja blaster even more capable in nearly every driving condition. Much of that tech centers on the Raptor’s 4WD system. But rather than some dogleg shifter protruding from the floor, the Raptor’s transfer case is multi-talented. It can be both 4WD and AWD, not to mention having modes for RWD and neutral. Hang on to your thinking caps, kids.

In order to make the Raptor a true all-terrain monster – meaning good on-road performance and good off-road performance no matter the type of terrain – Ford developed a special transfer case that intelligently distributes power to where it’s needed. There are four main modes, all of which are electronically controlled via both the dash-mounted knob and the Raptor’s drive modes. While the Raptor is the only vehicle that currently employs this exact system, other vehicles have had similar drivetrain setups with automatic 4WD. General Motors debuted its Autotrac system in the late 1990s. It could operate in RWD, 4WD, or a 4WD Auto mode. Likewise, the Toyota 4Runner offers a full-time 4WD system with a similar operation, minus a RWD mode. Technically speaking, this means the 4Runners has a full-time 4WD system rather than a part-time 4WD system. Land Rovers are perhaps the best-known SUV for having a full-time 4WD system. All come standard with a computer-controlled full-time system that diverts power to whatever wheels have traction. Many models go a step further by adding a 4WD Low range, which uses different gears within the transfer case to multiply torque that’s sent to the wheels. 4WD Low is best for low-speed crawling or pulling a heavy load at low speeds over a short distance, like recovering a stuck vehicle or pulling a tree off a trail.

But how’s the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor’s 4WD system work? Glad you asked; Keep reading for more – and that informative video from Engineering Explained.

Breaking Down the Raptor’s 4WD System

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has four main 4WD setting. These encompass both electronic setting and gear selections within the computer-controlled transfer case. These settings are 2 High, 4 Auto, 4 High, and 4 Low.

“The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has four main 4WD setting”

Naturally, 2 High sends power only to the rear wheels, regardless of wheel slip. However, the magic starts happening in 4 Auto. This mode engages the locking front hubs so the front axle shafts, differential, and drive shaft are spinning the same speed as the front tires. A wet multi-plate clutch inside the T-case is left as the sole break in connection to the engine’s torque. Should wheel slip occur and the computer determines more traction is needed, this clutch can partially or fully engage to send power to the front wheels. 4 Auto is great for bad weather conditions like rain or snow. Not only does it provide extra traction, but that multi-plate clutch allows for slip between the front and rear axles. Without this slip, the driveline can bind under pressure, which causes wheel scrub on dry pavement. Obviously, this isn’t good for either the driveline components or tires.


4WD Systems Are More Complex Than You Think - image 734591

4WD Systems Are More Complex Than You Think - image 734592

4 High completely locks the 4WD system into use. Like an old-school transfer case, this mode equally splits engine power to the front and rear axles – something that’s called a 50/50 torque split. This is great for off-roading, since wheel spin does not affect the power delivery between the axles. This mode can also be engaged, disengaged, and used at any speed.

4 Low is for more serious off-road situations. The transfer case uses different gears to multiply engine torque to provide greater turning force at each wheel. This is great for rock crawling, climbing a steep hill, or pulling something heavy like a boat out of the water at a boat ramp. But because of this torque multiplication and gearing limitations, 4 Low isn’t for going fast. Most vehicles with 4 Low engaged top out around 25 to 30 mph, with some even lower.


4WD Systems Are More Complex Than You Think - image 734590

While the Ford Raptor isn’t the first to employ a full-time 4WD system with a 2WD mode, it certainly has the most complex and feature-laden. That’s part of why the second-generation Raptor is so good.

The Confusing Terminology

Asking someone to explain the difference between 4WD and AWD – or even full-time and part-time 4WD – is often met with a blank stare. Hopefully, this will clear things up.

“Part-time 4WD is the oldest and least advanced type of 4WD system”

Part-Time 4WD: This is the oldest and least advanced type of 4WD system in vehicles like trucks and traditional SUVs. It uses a transfer case that only engages the front axle when the driver shifts it into gear, hints the name “part-time.” In regular driving, only two wheels are turning (most commonly, the rear wheels). When 4WD is engaged, the transfer case is locked into a 50/50 torque split, with the engine’s power equally divided between the front and rear axles. Low-range gears allow for torque multiplication, increasing torque to the wheels. Modern vehicles that use this system include the Jeep Wrangler and pickups with manually operated transfer cases like the Ram Power Wagon.


2017 Land Rover Discovery - image 689778

Full-Time 4WD: This 4WD system is similar to all-wheel drive (AWD) in that all four wheels are getting engine power almost all the time. However, unlike AWD, a full-time 4WD system offers low-range gears. The driver makes the choice if/when to engage 4 Low. Vehicles like Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover, and the higher-spec Toyota 4Runners mentioned above use this type of 4WD system.

“Yet even with these 4WD and AWD systems neatly categorized, there are some systems that defy these classifications.”

2018 Subaru XV Crosstrek - image 711838

All-Wheel Drive: An AWD system powers all four wheels regardless of road or weather conditions. While AWD systems can vary the percentage of torque split between the front and rear axles, the system never disconnects one axle or another. More modern systems like Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD system even actively vary the percentage of torque split between the left and right, sending power to the outside wheel in a turn, helping the vehicle rotate around a curve. This is called torque vectoring.


2017 Jeep Compass - image 696035

Part-Time AWD: Many of today’s crossover and AWD cars use a part-time AWD system. This type of system allows all four wheels to receive power, but automatically and seamlessly disconnects one of the axles to boost fuel economy. After all, turning extra components and wheels uses fuel. The 2017 Jeep Compass is offered with two types of AWD/4WD systems beyond its base front-wheel-drive configuration. The available Active Drive system defaults to FWD mode in normal driving conditions, but will send power to all four wheels if traction becomes an issue – all with no driver intervention. Active Drive does offer a “4WD Lock” mode the driver can engage should he desire the rear axle to remain under power.

Yet even with these 4WD and AWD systems neatly categorized, there are some systems that defy these classifications. The 2017 Jeep Compass’ other 4WD system, Active Drive Low, is a perfect example. Not only is it a part-time AWD system, but it also incorporates low-range gearing. This means ADL hovers between a part-time AWD system and a part-time 4WD system. Technically, it could be classified as an automatic part-time 4WD system. Boy, this does get tricky, right?

So, what do you think? Did you learn anything about AWD and 4WD systems? Let us know in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon Expecting Greatness From The Ford F-150’s Upcoming Turbodiesel V-6

Ford made big waves in the half-ton pickup segment when it announced the 2018 F-150 would be available with a V-6 turbodiesel. Details about the new 3.0-liter have been scarce, with Ford only divulging it was designed, engineered, and tested in-house and that it will wear the Power Stroke name. Fortunately for us, Ford’s corporate ties to Jaguar Land Rover give telling clues about the new Power Stroke.

See, Jaguar Land Rover’s 3.0-liter V-6 Td6 turbodiesel is actually a Ford engine – a byproduct of Ford’s past ownership of both Jaguar and Land Rover. The engine is even found in Peugeot and Citroën cars, too, as part of the Lion engine series. Introduced in the U.S. for the 2016 model year, the 3.0 Td6 plays a staring role in Land Rover’s new Discovery, the Range Rover, and Range Rover Sport. To show off the Td6’s abilities, Land Rover recently hitched a diesel Discovery to a 121-ton road train in Australia. The 328-foot-long semi truck included seven trailers – three more than what’s typically legal to tow across the open roads of the Outback. The Discovery’s turbodiesel and full-time 4WD system seemingly had no problem moving the 242,000-pound behemoth 10 miles across a flat stretch of closed highway. That’s an impressive feat given the engine’s output of 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. While Ford hasn’t disclosed its 3.0-liter Power Stroke’s specs, we can bet big money it won’t make less power than its Land Rover twin. So what does that mean for the mid-2018 F-150? Keep reading to see what we think.

Land Rover Gives A Good Glimpse At The F-150’s Diesel Future


2016 Land Rover Range Rover Td6 - image 610485

It’s hard to predict the future, but having giant clues sure makes things easier. It’s thanks to Jaguar Land Rover that we have an idea about how the F-150’s new turbodiesel will perform.

“The 3.0-liter V-6 Td6’s main block is constructed from Compacted Graphite Iron”

The 3.0-liter V-6 Td6’s main block is constructed from Compacted Graphite Iron, just like Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 and the EcoBoost V-6s available in the F-150. The material is said to have a higher tensile strength than standard gray cast iron, offer better fatigue strength over aluminum, and weigh less than standard gray cast iron. The block also features a deep skirt with cross-bolted main bearings for added strength. A one-piece aluminum oil pan actually adds structural rigidity, too, while helping cut noise levels during operation.

The Td6 uses dual-overhead camshafts to control four valves over each cylinder. A single turbocharger forces air into the engine and a high-pressure fuel system squirts fuel directly into the combustion chambers. Keeping emissions in check is a low-pressure EGR system and a diesel exhaust fluid system. Interestingly, the low-pressure EGR system pulls air further down stream in the exhaust system – past the DEF filter – in an effort to get cooler air. This air is then routed into the turbocharger, then through an intercooler. The result is relatively cool (and therefore more dense) pressurized air being forced into the combustion chambers. Though this system passes the EPA’s strict emission requirements, there’s a good chance Ford will modify its operation for use in the F-150.

“The Land Rover Discovery Td6 with its eight-speed automatic transmission, full-time 4WD system, and its 5,500-pound curb weight get and EPA-estimated 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined”

As for fuel efficiency, the Land Rover Discovery Td6 with its eight-speed automatic transmission, full-time 4WD system, and its 5,500-pound curb weight get and EPA-estimated 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined. The Td6 does even better in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, earning an EPA-estimated 22/28/24, respectively.

Td6 Turned Power Stroke


Expecting Greatness From The Ford F-150's Upcoming Turbodiesel V-6 - image 733174

The next few paragraphs will be speculation, of course, since Ford has yet to disclose much information on its new baby Power Stroke. But as mentioned before, we’re positive Land Rover’s Td6 gives a good idea about what to expect.

“On paper, the Td6 is surprisingly on-point for use in the F-150”

On paper, the Td6 is surprisingly on-point for use in the F-150. It sizes up rather well against its main competitor, the Ram 1500’s 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6. That engine generates 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and affords the Ram 1500 an impressive 20 mpg city and 28 mpg on the highway. In Ram’s fuel-sipping trim, the 1500 HFE, the EcoDiesel squeezes out 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway without any reduction in power. (Ram uses taller gearing in the rear axle and a few other tricks on a base-model, quad-cab truck with almost zero luxury features.) The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel can also pull up to 9,200 pounds on its hitch, only 1,200 pounds shy of the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. The EcoBoost HFE is limited to 7,920 pounds of towing.


Expecting Greatness From The Ford F-150's Upcoming Turbodiesel V-6 - image 733176

Expecting Greatness From The Ford F-150's Upcoming Turbodiesel V-6 - image 733175

You can bet Ford will attempt to match, if not exceed, the Ram EcoDiesel’s numbers. In its Td6 form, the engine already out-powers the EcoDiesel with 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. We’d figure on the Power Stroke version to make at least 260 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Round numbers are better for marketing purposes, after all.

Ford did confirm the F-150 Power Stroke will utilize Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission. The two extra gears give engineers a better shot at hitting that magical 30-mpg highway. That’s certainly a possibility given the F-150’s aluminum body and curb weight that ranges between 4,050 and 4,900 pounds, depending on cab, bed, engine, and drivetrain configuration. The 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Crew Cab with 4WD and the mid-grade Big Horn trim package tested by Car & Driver reportedly weighted 5,688 pounds. Though the Power Stroke V-6 will likely add between 150 to 300 pounds to the F-150’s total weight, the F-150 should still be lighter than the Ram when all variables are comparatively matched.

“The Land Rover Discovery Td6 can pull 7,716 pounds on its hitch”

As for towing, the Land Rover Discovery Td6 can pull 7,716 pounds on its hitch. That’s impressive for a unibody SUV with an independent rear suspension tuned for on-road comfort and off-road flexibility. The F-150 Power Stroke will undoubtedly have a more impressive rating, especially given how competitive the truck segment has become over this metric. We’d bet on a 9,000-pound tow rating and a payload capacity around 2,000 pounds.

Conclusion


Expecting Greatness From The Ford F-150's Upcoming Turbodiesel V-6 - image 733173

Ford is taking a bold step in offering a V-6 turbodiesel in its F-150. While Ram was the first, Ford arguably has more at stake. The F-150 represents a massive portion of Ford’s sales and there is simply no room for mistakes or tarnished perceptions. The F-150, along with the Super Duty that make up the F-Series lineup, sold more than 820,000 vehicles in 2016, making it the best-selling vehicle in America by far. Adding a turbodiesel should help satisfy customers who have been clamoring for one for decades, while helping the F-150 hit that all-important CAFÉ requirement with improved fuel economy.

Once Ford released the 3.0-liter Power Stroke’s figures, we’ll bring that information to you. In the mean time, we’re left wondering if General Motors is dusting off that 4.5-liter V-8 Duramax it had almost finished before the recession.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Won’t Revive the F-150 Lightning But This Dealership Did

Truck fans will instantly recognize the Lightning name – it belongs to Ford and its two generations of performance-minded F-150s from back in the 1990s and early 2000s. These were short-bed, single-cab trucks with lowered suspensions and big V-8s under their hoods. Sadly, Ford dropped the F-150 Lightning in 2004 and has since kept its SVT team busy with the F-150 Raptor. That’s left the street performance pickup niche rather cold, with only the 2014 F-150 Tremor showing any signs of hope.

But like in the late 1960s, a dealership has launched its own performance upgrade for the current Ford F-150.

Pioneer Ford in Bremen, Georgia put together an “F-150 Lightning Tribute” that turns a single-cab, short-bed F-150 into a 650-horsepower monster with a side exhaust, 22-inch wheels with street rubber, and a Roush supercharger bolted to that 5.0-liter Coyote V-8. Yep, it’s got the right number of cylinders and none of that EcoBoost stuff under the hood. It doesn’t get any more American than this!

Keep reading for more on the Pioneer Ford F-150 Lightning Tribute.

PostHeaderIcon Ford F-150

Ford has reworked the F-150 for 2018 with cosmetic updates, new active safety systems, and some healthy powertrain upgrades. A new front fascia and modifications to the taillights and tailgate constitute the exterior changes, along with new wheel choices. Adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keep assist are now present, too. But the biggest changes happen under the hood.

Ford has upgraded nearly every engine option. The base 3.5-liter V-6 has been replaced with a new 3.3-liter V-6 with more power and better efficiency. Both the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8 have been improved with more power. Ford’s 10-speed automatic now comes standard on all but the base V-6. Best of all, an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V-6 turbodiesel joins the lineup. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 carries over unchanged, though it received a huge update for the 2017 model year. The same is true for the 2017 F-150 Raptor’s High-Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost. The F-150 is Ford’s biggest seller and highest profit-maker, so it’s completely understandable why Ford pays it so much attention. The current F-150 debuted for the 2015 model year, so it’s not really old. In fact, it still remains the newest full-size, half-ton pickup among the Big Three – beating the Chevy Silverado by a year and the Ram 1500 by six. Only the 2017 Nissan Titan is newer.

Update 08/09/2017: EPA estimates for the 2018 F-150’s fuel economy have been released. Efficiency improves for the base V-6, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost, and the V-8. Towing and Payload stats are also announced.

PostHeaderIcon Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor

Ford Performance created a one-off F-150 Raptor styled after the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet for a charity auction benefiting kids’ interest and participation in flying. Called the Gathering of Eagles, the annual event is hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association. This year, the auction raised $300,000 thanks to Ford’s donation of the “F-22 Raptor.” The truck obviously takes its name and styling cues from America’s premier fighter, going so far as to incorporate the jet’s silhouette into its grille and side mirrors. But that just scratches the surface of what Ford did to this 2018 F-150 Raptor Crew Cab.

The Raptor boasts a Whipple intercooler and other performance upgrades on its high-output, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, giving it an impressive 545 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque – a healthy improvement over its stock 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of twist. The bodywork received carbon fiber fender flairs, custom LED lighting, power-deploying running boards, an aggressive wheel and tire package, and that silver-over-black paint job. These, combined with other upgrades, helped the truck garner a $300,000 winning bid, beating out last year’s winning bid of $295,000 for a P-51D Mustang-themed 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 called Ole Yeller. Making the winning bid more special – it was from Gary Ackerman of Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas. Ackerman serves as Honorary Commander and Ambassador for the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Builds First Truck 100 Years Ago Today

Ford is celebrating 100 years of making pickups today. It was July 27, 1917 that Ford introduced the Model TT pickup. It was based on the hugely popular Model T, but came with a stronger frame built to carry 2,000 pounds in its cargo bed. A meager 209 examples were built that year. Now, a century later, Ford’s F-Series pickups continue the legacy build by Henry Ford with trucks ranging from the half-ton F-150 to the commercial medium-duty F-750 Super Duty. Nearly a million examples sold in 2017, each costing a bit more than the Model TT’s price of $600.

Henry Ford designed the Model TT to accommodate aftermarket beds, allowing the truck to cater to an endless number of industries. Yet, the Model TT used the Model T’s cab and engine, helping cut costs while streamlining Ford’s genius of an assembly line production. Remember, it was Mr. Ford who started producing vehicles on an assembly line with the Model T just nine years prior. Amazingly, this concept hasn’t changed. Ford trucks continue to share parts, like the cab section between the F-150 and the updated-for-2017 Super Duty. Between 1917 and 2017, Ford has built dozens of generations and variations of its pickups, including more unique examples like the car-based Ranchero and the compact Ranger. A more comprehensive list is down below.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Builds F-22 Raptor-Themed F-150 Raptor for Charity Auction

Ford has built a one-off, 2017 F-150 Raptor with an aeronautical theme for a charity auction for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual Gathering of Eagles fundraiser. The truck is dubbed the “F-22 Raptor” in an obvious hat-tip to the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor stealth tactical fighter jet. The F-150 sports several modifications, including a grille with the F22’s silhouette, off-road lights, a custom graphics package, a larger wheel and tire setup, and modifications to the EcoBoost engine giving it 545 horsepower.

Ford design manager, Melvin Betancourt, headed the build with backing from the Ford Performance Team, meaning this isn’t some aftermarket hack job. “This F-150 Raptor is a new look at Ford’s tradition of building unique vehicles in support of EAA’s youth aviation programs,” Betancourt says. “We know this truck will create an unmatched buzz around this year’s Gathering of Eagles auction.” Last year, Ford built a Shelby GT350 Mustang called Ole Yeller to pay homage to the P-51D Mustang fighter from WWII. That car raised $295,000. This year’s F-150 F-22 Raptor goes under the gavel on Thursday, July 27 at the EAA’s AirVenture aircraft show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. All proceeds will help inspire and educate youth about flying.
