PostHeaderIcon Is Ford’s Trunk Conveyor Belt Patent Proof Consumers are Getting Really Lazy?

If you’ve ever found having to reach all the way back into the cargo area of your SUV way too hard and a bit of a stretch, Ford may provide alleviation with a new system it’s just patented. The patent drawings show and detail electrically-operated conveyor belts in the floor of the trunk itself that you can move via some conveniently placed switches.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Won’t Use the Mach 1 Name On An SUV – It’ll Use the Newly Patented Mach-E

The crossover craze continues unabated, and rumor has it Ford is getting in on the action with a new electrified model that could carry some DNA over from the Mustang, including a name derived from the iconic Mach 1. However, diehards will be pleased to know the fresh utility vehicle most likely will receive a new nameplate all its own – “Mach-E.”

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Shelby GT500 Will Finally Be Revealed on January 14, 2019

The highly anticipated new-generation Shelby GT500 will break cover on January 14, 2019. The news comes straight from Ford, which displayed a 1967 GT500 in a container at the Los Angeles Auto Show with “01.14.19” written on it.

PostHeaderIcon For Some Reason the Chinese Don’t like that “New Car Smell” So Ford is Working on a Solution

I’ll try to be as humble as possible: What is wrong with people these days? How can someone NOT like new car smell? According to a study, one out of ten Chinese people dislike the new car smell. While it may seem erratic and should just be ignored, Ford is actually working to eliminate this from its cars! This is just weird.

PostHeaderIcon Beechmont Ford Performance Has Another Crazy Deal – this Time It Involves Nitrous and Mustang GTs

Beechmont Ford Performance, an Ohio-based dealership, is in the news again. And, for good reason. Its claim-to-fame was selling 700-horsepower Mustang GTs for a mere $40,000. This time, the showroom is selling brand new Mustang GTs with a bottle of nitrous fitted in the boot.
Can it get any crazier than this?

PostHeaderIcon Ford Thunderbird E-Code

The Thunderbird lived its last days as a two-seater sports car in 1957 which is when Ford introduced the 312 5.1-liter V-8 engine. That’s how the E-Code Thunderbird was born, the beefiest of them all and the closest alternative to the Corvette that Ford ever offered.

Ford debuted the Thunderbird at the Detroit Auto Show in February of 1954 and quickly dubbed it “personal car” so as to suggest it wasn’t a direct answer to GM’s Corvette. What it was, in all fairness, was a luxury sports car tailor-made for the kind of people that were looking for a more refined 2-seater model than the Corvette.

The 1957 Thunderbird was the last which retained the original two-passenger layout before Ford decided that their clientele would much rather go for a 4-seater sports car with added amenities and weight. So, for 1957, Ford made the most powerful T-Bird ever by introducing the 5.1-liter V-8 engine, in a number of guises. The twin quad-barrel carburetor ones were distinguishable by the letter E in the car’s VIN code – the source of the ’E-Bird’ nickname.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Doubles Down On Electric Scooters With New Investment

The electric two-wheeler industry is suddenly on the rise with a lot of automakers partaking and investing in it; some by manufacturing, some by investing in various mobility services. Recently we heard Musk subtly indicating that Tesla may soon get into electric cycles. General Motors has similar plans as well. The latest addition to this list is the Blue Oval, which announced its arrival in style purchasing Spin – an electric scooter rental firm.

PostHeaderIcon Watch a Ford Mustang Bullitt Rip Across the Isle of Man TT Course: Video

The original Bullitt Mustang is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and, while that’s going on, a brand-new sixth-generation Mustang with the Bullitt package headed for the emblematic Isle of Man to tackle the TT course. Yes, that idolized ribbon of road.

Held annually in May or June for over a century, the Isle of Man TT races, where TT stands for Tourist Trophy, are arguably the most dangerous races you can attend. Year in and year out, riders dabble on the edge of disaster and disaster does strike some of them. That’s because the TT is run on the B-roads that go around the picturesque Isle of Man.

The whole road course stretches over 37 miles and, along the way, you encounter hills, jumps, dips, houses, towns, just about everything you can imagine. There’s no room for error and, in spite of that, the current lap record translates to an astounding 135 mph average speed. Ford took a 2019 Mustang Bullitt to the island for its latest installment in the series that talks about Europe’s greatest driving roads.

PostHeaderIcon 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. In November 2018, photos of the actual vehicle leaked onto the web following a Ford dealer meeting. 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 by 2020.

Updated 11.14.2018Leaked photos from a dealer meeting shows the “baby” Bronco before we’re supposed to see it. Check out the photos in the gallery section.

PostHeaderIcon Ford’s “Baby” Bronco Leaked in Dealer Meeting Photos

Back in March 2018, Ford confirmed that it will revive the iconic Bronco, as well as add a smaller, “baby” Bronco crossover to its lineup. Come November and the “baby” Bronco revealed itself earlier than planned in leaked images from a dealer meeting.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the 2019 Ford Focus ST-Line Make a Top Speed Run on the Autobahn

Most of the autobahn top speed runs we’ve seen over the years usually involve a high-powered German sedan with its governor disabled. This time, we’ve got something a little different. Ever wonder what it’s like to push the new Ford Focus ST-Line to its limits? Now’s your chance to find out, with this point-of-view take from AutoTopNL.

PostHeaderIcon PaxPower Ford F-150 Raptor V-8 and Ford F-150 Raptor EcoBoost Comparison

With Ford introducing the EcoBoost F-150 Raptor, we witnessed the end of an era. The end of the V-8 Raptor era. Some, however, weren’t exactly thrilled with it. At all. People wanted the Raptor V-8. Luckily, thanks to PaxPower, they’ve got it. The Houston-based company took the Ford F-150 V-8, slapped a supercharger to it, installed all OEM 2019 F-150 Raptor parts on it, and called it a deal. It is now up to me to compare the two, although, it seems that PaxPower did not leave me a lot to compare here. The PaxPower Raptor has all the bells and whistles as the real thing – only with far more power and better performance.

PostHeaderIcon Ford To Invest In Microweather Technology For Autonomous Cars

Ever wondered what will happen to the autonomous cars when the weather conditions are bad? What if it’s raining and your self-driving car gets cold feet err., cold tires? Ford has given it a thought and invested in a company called ClimaCell. ClimaCell specializes in “microweather” technology capable of tracking location-specific, short-term weather patterns; and it has caught Ford’s attention. The Blue Oval recently participated in a Series B funding round that raised $45 million for ClimaCell.

PostHeaderIcon Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison vs Ford F-150 Raptor

There are few things in this world as resolutely badass as a hugely capable off-roader pickup truck. These are the machines you want with you when there’s a forest, mountain, or desert between you and your destination. With a go-anywhere attitude and the right stuff to walk the walk, the street-legal off-roader used to be something cobbled together in a shed. Now, you can get one direct from the factory, be it the Colorado ZR2 Bison from Chevrolet, or the F-150 Raptor from Ford.

These purpose-built, highly specialized variants offer tons of good stuff for those who prefer the trail to the street. For example, the Bison was created in collaboration with American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), an aftermarket off-roader company that knows exactly what’s needed when the going gets rough. Then there’s the F-150 Raptor, which Ford developed into a full-blown Baja racer with a license plate. But how do these two stack up against one another? Read on to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Ken Block Is Building Another Escort Cosworth for His 2019 Cossie World Tour

Ken Block made headlines earlier this year when he unveiled a stunning Ford Escort Cosworth RS fully prepped for rallying. The American promptly rolled the Escort RS during the New England Forest Rally and, following the crash, the Ford burnt to a crisp. Now, Hoonigan Racing announced that a new Escort will carry Block and Gelsomino in 2019.

We all know that besides making those crazy Gymkhana videos, Ken Block is an out-and-out fan of proper rallying. That’s why the American never misses out on a chance to try his hand around some special stages, be it tarmac or gravel, or even snow. He’s participated in a number of WRC events over the years in top-of-the-line Ford and Subaru machinery, as well as competing in the Rally America championship.

Brock’s latest project was turning a classic Ford Escort Cosworth RS into a full-blown rally car as a tribute to the Group A-spec rally cars of the mid-to-late-’90s. His original Cossie was crashed during the New England Forest Rally, and it erupted in flames almost immediately. The car was destroyed, but Block and Gelsomino weren’t hurt. Now, they’re aiming to bounce back stronger than ever!

PostHeaderIcon Ken Block’s F-150 Hoonitruck

When Ken Block unleashed the original Hoonicorn back in 2014, we went just a little bit of crazy. And why not? With an all-carbon widebody paying homage to the ’65 Mustang, a race-spec AWD system, and 845 horsepower from a 410-cube race-spec V-8 with velocity stacks rising more than a foot out of the hood, it was pretty much the perfect machine for grabbing eyeballs on the Internet. Now, Block and the Hoonigan team have once again managed to one-up themselves. The latest is called the Hoonitruck, and it’s bigger, more powerful, and crazier than the original Hoonicorn.

Like the Hoonicorn, the Hoonitruck took about two years to build. This time around though, the machine is “based” on a 1977 Ford F-150. And by based, I mean the Hoonitruck employs the same general shape as the factory pickup. That’s it though, as everything else is custom-built to put on a tire-killing speed show. The Hoonitruck is now headed for a starring role in the tenth iteration of Block’s über-viral Gymkhana video series, but until then, read on for all the details on this wild new smoke factory.

PostHeaderIcon Superformance Future GT Forty

Here’s the latest Superformance classic-looking Ford GT40. The American masters of continuation GT40s unveiled at the SEMA Show the Future GT Forty prototype which draws its inspiration from both the original 1960s GT40 Mk. and the modern, Le Mans-winning, V-6 Ecoboost-poweredFord GT GTLM race cars.

The South-African Superformance company has been building painstakingly accurate GT40 recreations for over a decade and a half. Their cars are officially licensed to use the GT40 name and even eligible for the GT40 register, which means the Blue Oval fully approves of these beasts.

This latest model, presented after an 18-months-long buildup in the MagnaFlow booth at the SEMA Show, features the same livery as the 2017 GTE-Pro Le Mans-winning Ford GT built by Multimatic and a host of aerodynamic and mechanical upgrades that increase the GT40s prowess around any race track.

PostHeaderIcon Silly Ford Thinks it Can Take On the Porsche Panamera With a Four-Door, V-8 Mustang

Yes, the Mustang will remain the only car the Blue Oval will offer on U.S. soil, but the legendary pony car might spawn a number of models, including a four-door coupe-style sedan that aims to match Audi’s A7 or Mercedes-Benz’s CLS Class.

We’ve heard just about anything that could’ve been heard about the upcoming Mustang-styled crossover. But during that same meeting with the dealers that Ford organized, the company threw in the mix some hints towards a potential Mustang sedan that could be outfitted with a turbocharged V-8 engine.

Keep reading to learn more about the rumored Mustang sedan.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT Carbon Series

The second-generation Ford GT was launched for the 2017 model year as a revival of the limited-edition supercar that the Blue Oval first produced between 2004 and 2006. The modern GT is also a tribute to the original GT40 from the 1960s and marked Ford’s return to endurance racing. Following a handful of special-edition model, Ford created the Carbon Series, a lightweight version of the standard GT.

Fitted with an extended range of carbon-fiber parts as standard, including wheels, the Carbon Series is nearly 40 pounds lighter than the regular GT. It also features extra carbon inside the cabin, as well as customized seats and a dashboard badge. Is it more powerful? No, but the fact that it’s lighter makes it a more nimble car on the race track.

PostHeaderIcon Series 1 Ford Mustang RTR

Ford has brought the Series 1 Mustang RTR Powered by Ford Performance to the 2018 SEMA show, but unlike most other special Mustangs on display, it’s actually going to sell 500 examples come early 2019. Its creation is the collaborative effort of Ford Performance and RTR Vehicles, the company owned by world champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and is a mix of elements from both.
