PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang Goes From 0 to 60 MPH In Under 4 Seconds

Ford fans rejoice, and spectators run for your life – the 2018 Ford Mustang is here, and it comes with a fresh look and more power than ever. To start off, the EcoBoost model – the new entry-level model now that the V-6 has been dropped – maintains its 310 horsepower output, but gains an extra 30 pound-feet, bringing it up to 350 pound-feet of torque. The real news, however, is the is that beast of an engine under the hood of the Mustang GT is 5.0-liters of sheer stomach cramping goodness that’s good for 440 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. That’s an improvement me of 25 ponies and 20 pound-feet over the 2017 model and enough to make the Porsche 911 Porsche Carrera look like a little bitch with its $94,000 price tag and 4.4-second sprint to 60 mph.

It’s not just the extra power that makes the Mustang so quick, it’s the entire setup, and one could argue that Ford has quite literally found perfection. When you combine the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires that come with the Performance Pack along with that increased output, the new Drag Strip mode and the new 10-speed automatic, you get sheer supremacy. We’re talking about a sprint to 60 mph in “less than four seconds” and, while we don’t know official top speed figures, you can bet the updated GT will get you a little closer to God when you finally start to max out. To get the extra power out of that V-8, Ford added in dual-fuel, high-pressure direction injection and low-pressure port fuel injection. Surely there was some other tuning specifics, but Ford has yet to elaborate. Seems hard to believe, doesn’t it? Keep reading to learn more.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Jay Leno Review His Personal 2017 Ford GT: Video

Ford reintroduced the GT nameplate in 2015 at the Detroit Auto Show, ushering in a second-generation for the Blue Oval’s streetable supercar. The GT is a nod to the GT40, the racer that brought the fight to Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the mid-‘60s, and the modern iteration arrives packed to the brim with the very latest in domestic go-fast technology. It’s a low-weight, high-strung, monster of a super car, making it the perfect addition for Jay Leno’s garage.

In this extended 36-minute, 51-second review, Jay starts by detailing the process he went through in securing, customizing, and receiving delivery of his car, followed by a comparison to another legendary sports car. “This reminds me a lot of my McLaren F1 because the McLaren F1was a road car that you could have driven to Le Mans, won the race, and driven back, and this is pretty much the same thing.” After a walk around in the garage, including a look at the aero, the cabin, and the engine, Jay takes the Ford out into public for a little street driving, both on the highway, surface streets, and twisty mountain lanes. While lengthy, the video is still worth a watch to get an in-depth look at Ford’s top dog.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT Production Hits A Speed Bump, Deliveries Now Delayed

The lucky lot who managed to secure reservations for the Ford GT will now have to wait a little longer before taking delivery of their supercar. That’s the word according to Ford itself, which announced delays in the production due to what it described as “craftsmanship requirements.” According to Automotive News, the Blue Oval sent a letter to would-be GT owners, explaining that the cause of delay was tied to supplier constraints and homologation testing brought about by the increased production of the car. As such, adjustments are being made on the timetable of the delivery of the cars.

Ford didn’t elaborate on anything more than saying the ramp-up process to get all of its suppliers in line are almost complete. Likewise, an updated delivery timetable will be sent to customers within a week, so those who are getting anxious because of this deal can breathe a little easier now. It doesn’t appear to be a major issue, but simply a case of Ford getting its production logistics in order before proceeding with the build. Once the ramp-up phase is smoothed out, the company still expects to build one GT a day for its expecting customers. Of the 250 planned units for the year, 50 models have been built and delivered to their new owners. Soon enough, the rest will have their days too, but not after waiting a little longer than they anticipated.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Engineer Leaks Bronco Details

The 2020 Ford Bronco has been (unofficially) confirmed as a four-door SUV based on the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger pickup and will be powered by the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 matched with robust off-road capabilities like 19.5 inches of water fording – all for a price starting around $30,000. The information comes from a Ford engineer who spoke to Gear Patrol on the condition of anonymity. The insider also divulged some telling truths about the Bronco’s revival, including that Ford is now starting the third design phase for the iconic SUV, having not been satisfied with the first two because it “looks too much like the Wrangler.” Typically, vehicles only get a single design phase before being pushed into production.

The Bronco’s correlation to the Jeep Wrangler isn’t surprising since Ford used the Wrangler Unlimited as its benchmark in off-road capability, save for its rock-crawling abilities, claims the Ford insider. “If you’re familiar with the [Ford] Troller, out of Brazil, that’s the basic concept, but it’ll look like a four-door version of that,” the engineer told Gear Patrol. A two-door version isn’t happening because Ford doesn’t think it would sell. Power will come from “something like” the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6. In the 2018 F-150, that EcoBoost makes 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque – respectable numbers in a Wrangler-sized SUV. Sadly, the engineer says the Bronco won’t be the hard-core off-roader many are hoping. Rather, it’s designed primarily as a comfortable on-road, family-friendly SUV, though sprinkled with off-road hardware. When asked about a Raptor version, the insider said, “it’s not even in the works yet.”

PostHeaderIcon Does Ford have a Side Hustle? $1 Million in Pot Found Inside New Ford Fusions

Imagine this: It’s Monday morning, and you just got to work at your local Ford dealer. A new shipment of Ford Fusions just got dropped off, so it’s on you to go out and inspect each one to make sure they are as they should be. The first few check out fine, then you go to check the spare tire of one and see that it’s wrapped up in trash bags and duct tape… “What the hell is that,” you think to yourself as you begin to remove the trash bag. It’s at this moment that you realize you’re not looking at a spare tire at all, but instead, a spare-tired sized, 30-pound brick of the finest Mexican swag. Sounds pretty far-fetched, doesn’t it? Well, it should, but that exact thing recently happened at a Ford dealership in Warren Ohio. And, that wasn’t the only car found to contain large amounts of brick weed. So far, Authorities have found a total of 15 Ford Fusions packed with the stuff in Ohio and Pennsylvania, to the tune of about 480 pounds.

We’ve seen manufacturers do some pretty interesting things to entice buyers, but free pot? That has to be a first. So far, what’s actually happening is still a pretty big mystery. All 15 cars that were found to be laced with Mexico’s finest were all manufactured at the Sonora plant in Mexico and came across the border in the same rail car, passing through Arizona on their way to Ohio. Authorities have yet to determine where the pot was infused into the shipping chain, but they do know that someone dropped the ball on the receiving end and is now out a cool million in product – ouch. Ford and CSX have both gone on record saying they’ll support the investigation. Ford said it has already “confirmed” that the smuggling ring didn’t originate in its facilities, but that’s a lot of pot, and it certainly had to come from somewhere.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang Inspires New Coolhaus Ice Cream!

Mustang-Inspired Orange Fury Ice Cream (1)

Talk about clever marketing! In an effort to create some buzz for the new Orange Fury exterior color of the 2018 Ford Mustang, the company has teamed up with Coolhaus to present a limited edition, Mustang-inspired ice cream sandwich. This new product has a  zesty orange flavor to go with the color and comes in two Vanilla Whoopies, covered in orange icing and an edible wrapper made from potato wafer paper with edible ink.

Now for the marketing part: the Mustang-inspired ice cream sandwich will be will be given out for free starting today for four days at various locations in New York City in a Coolhaus ice cream truck outfitted with 2018 Mustang decals. The idea was the brainchild of Ford color and materials design manager, Barb Whalen. The 2018 Mustang also comes in Kona Blue and Royal Crimson but there are no ice cream versions of those yet.

“I typically focus on things like color research, leather seats and hand stitching, so this was definitely a bit different for me,” said Whalen. “It was fun applying some of those same design philosophies into helping Coolhaus create an ice cream flavor that really embodies the new Orange Fury color.”

“I’ve always been a fan of the Mustang, and was super excited when they came to us with such a special project,” Coolhaus CEO & Founder Natasha Case said. “We thrive on helping our customers realize their vision and love to help create that special, one-of-a-kind experience – one that really makes an impact. We couldn’t be happier that one of the original American classics chose Coolhaus, a new American classic, as a way to add excitement to their latest innovation.”

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Ford Transit Custom

transit-custom-2018

The king of all vans, Ford Transit, brings a new one-tonne commercial vehicle to the market early next year in form of the 2018 Ford Transit Custom. Ask anyone – builders, movers, even robbers who needs something fast, reliable and specious to carry the loot – and they will tell you the Transit is the best of them all. The new Custom follows the same proud tradition, only it’s better. 

You still get the legendary practicality and everything, but 2018 Ford Transit Custom is also cool to look at, what with the bold new front-end design with three-bar Transit grille and colors that seem to be lifted straight out of the Focus RS catalog. The van also benefits from the latest technologies, namely SYNC 3 or MyFord Dock options as well as include Intelligent Speed Limiter.

The cabin, too, is a very pleasant place to spend long hours in, featuring a completely new design that offers best-in-class stowage, improved comfort and ergonomics. You can even convert it to a mobile office and work on the go. Another highlight of 2018 Ford Transit Custom is its new  Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre diesel engine with optimized performance and efficiency. There is even an ECOnetic variant that delivers further improved fuel efficiency and 148 g/km CO2 emissions.

PostHeaderIcon Fan Forum Renders Four-Door Ford Bronco

Remember the Bronco rendering that took the Internet by storm nearly a year ago? Well, the same folks behind it have now rendered a four-door version of Ford’s upcoming SUV. Bronco6g.com is a forum site dedicated to unearthing rumors and compiling speculation on the heavily anticipated, sixth-generation Ford Bronco. While nothing official has surfaced regarding the Bronco’s design, Bronco6g’s artwork has become the unofficial face of what’s expected in 2020.

What’s more, the new renderings show the Bronco’s backside and possible rear tire carrier. Insider information also suggests the Bronco will have removable roof panels. Called the “Air Roof,” the system is similar to the Jeep Renegade’s MySky roof, which allows for open-air driving and in-vehicle storage of the panels.

But wait, Ford never built a four-door Bronco. Why start now?

That’s a truthful statement and a good question. However, looking at history, it’s clear that four-door SUVs out-sell their two-door counterparts. The Jeep Wrangler JK is the foremost example. Jeep Wranglers and CJs all came with only two doors until 2007 when Jeep launched the Wrangler JK Unlimited. Since then Wrangler sales have skyrocketed, with the four-door Unlimited version accounting for roughly 80 percent of total sales. As for the Bronco, Ford has said it will ride on the Ranger T6 platform, which is also coming to America by the end of the decade. The Ranger is obviously offered with four doors, so why not capitalize on the platform and build an SUV with more interior space and the propensity to lead sales?

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Gets a New Pony Package

The Ford Mustang. It’s one of history’s most iconic muscle cars (and now a modern day crowd-hunting missile) that has seen a total of six generations, several different body styles, and one of the most loyal fanbases out there. It’s had its ups and downs but has been in constant production since March of 1964, with the most recent generation coming to life for the 2015 model year. Since then, the Mustang has been reworked a bit, with a new face for 2018 and a revamp of drivetrain options that will cut out the V-6 altogether. Along with the facelift and change to the drivetrain lineup, it was recently announced that even the EcoBoost Mustang will now come with line-lock, and now Ford is announcing a new “Pony Package” for the EcoBoost model that brings some stand-out aesthetics and the classic pony-in-corral grille that has appeared occasionally since it was displayed on the original concept in the mid-1960s

The last time the pony-in-corral grille was seen was back in 2015 as part of the Mustang’s anniversary package, but this time around as part of the package for the EcoBoost, you’ll also get a few other items that include side stripes on the lower body, tri-bar pony badge on the rear deck, a brightened beltline and window trim for hard tops, and a fresh pair of wheels. Inside, you get some floor mats with an embroidered pony logo to tie the whole package together. So far, there’s no price announced yet, but we should learn more about the price of this package as well as pricing for the 2018 Mustang shortly before it goes on sale in time for Halloween.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Raptor

It’s well known Ford is developing a midsize pickup for the North American market based on the current T6 platform used on the global Ranger truck. In fact, Ford has officially announced the Ranger will return to America in 2019, along with the iconic Bronco name fitted to a Ranger-based, body-on-frame SUV. Yet hidden deep in the Outback of Australia roams a suspicious Ranger test mule with taller ground clearance, wider fenders, a stubby front bumper, and beefy tires. Could Ford be preparing a Raptor version of the Ranger? We certainly believe so.

The Australia-based CarAdvice managed to snag spy shots of this Ranger Raptor testing in full camouflage and with the steering wheel on the left-hand side – something not found on Australian vehicles. The photos are just the latest morsel of information. Adding to the argument was Ford’s trademarking of the Ranger Raptor and Ranger FX4 names with the Australian government back in 2015. The Ranger FX4 is already in production, leaving the Ranger Raptor name ready for its limelight. Sadly, U.S. consumers have some waiting to do. Ford is launching the Ranger for the 2019 model year, but the Raptor version might not debut at the same time. After all, Ford didn’t release the second-generation F-150 Raptor until two years after the completely redesigned, 2015 F-150 hit showrooms. Then again, Ford would be smart to launch the Ranger Raptor alongside the standard Ranger, giving the pickup a definitive halo model. But timelines aside, let’s look at what we believe to be the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor.

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.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special Edition

Those of you who are familiar with the Mount Panorama race track in Bathurst, Australia will attest to the circuit’s status as one of the world’s greatest race tracks. The 79-year old circuit is home to the Bathurst 1000, one of the most famous endurance races in the world, and was also the site of Ford’s famous one-two finish back in 1977. Forty years after that memorable triumph, Australian Ford tuner Pickford is rolling out a limited run of Ford Mustang GTs called the Tickford Bathurst ’77 Special.

The limited-run set of Mustangs will feature plenty of cosmetic upgrades, but none are more important than its livery to match the race-winning 1977 Falcon XC Hardtops that racers Allan Moffat and Colin Bond drove to victory 40 years ago. If anything, the special edition Mustang pays tribute to the storied ties between Australian motorsports and the Blue Oval. “We wanted to give fans that either witnessed the famous one-two live, or have come to appreciate the supreme effort after the fact, the chance to own a unique vehicle that has been developed in conjunction with the man that made it happen,” Tickford CEO and Prodrive Racing Australia team boss Tim Edwards said.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang Order Guide Leaked

The sixth-generation Mustang is a pretty big deal. It was introduced for 2015 and was the most advanced pony to roll out of Ford’s stable to date. The biggest highlights included the introduction of the EcoBoost four-cylinder – the first four-cylinder to be offered in the ‘Stang for a while – and a new independent rear suspension system, a first since the car was first introduced back in 1964. After just a couple of years on the market, Ford realized it’s EcoBoost drivetrain was a real winner, and eventually dropped the base V-6, leaving just the 310-horsepower EcoBoost and the 435-horsepower Coyote V-8. For 2018, Ford recently announced that the line-lock feature from the GT track package will now come standard across the line, but now we’re finally getting a look at the order guide companion for the first time, and there are quite a few options to talk about.

All told, there are three different packages available for the EcoBoost and GT models: a performance package, a black accent package, and a new Carbon Sport interior package – essentially letting you get a little bit of that supercar feel inside your new pony. But, there’s a lot of little things to cover in this companion guide, so let’s take a closer look at what you can order before you get to the dealer.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Issues Tiny Recall on Escape and Explorer PPU, Larger Recall on Transit Van

Ford just issued two of the smallest safety compliance recalls in history. The automaker has reason to believe three 2016 Escape crossovers and four Police Interceptor Utility Vehicles left the factory with defects, which could potentially cause harm to users. These laughably small recalls are juxtaposed against another recall announced at the same time. This one affects 402,000 Transit vans built between 2015 and 2017. While these larger recalls have seemingly become “business as usual” for automakers, it’s rare to hear a voluntarily recall for vehicles in the single digits.

In fact, only BMW has Ford beat, according to online information. It recalled a single – one, uno, 1.02017 X3 xDrive28i back in October of 2016 for an issue with its electronic power steering. Of course, I’m not counting boutique automakers with relatively tiny production numbers like McLaren, Pagani, and Koenigsegg. At the opposite end of the recall spectrum, the ongoing Takata airbag recall has entangled more than two-dozen automakers and nearly 70 million vehicles. The recall began in 2013 due to faulty inflators that could explode upon airbag deployment, sending metal shrapnel into passengers’ faces. Sadly, at least 11 deaths and more than 150 injuries have been reported in the U.S. alone. Thankfully, Ford has no reports of injuries resulting from the Explorer, Escape, or Transit van. So what exactly is prompting these recalls? Keep reading to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Ford RS200 Evolution has a Bad Day at Goodwood

I have to admit that it can be fun to watch cars crash, at least when nobody gets hurt, anyway. Every now and then, however, it’s actually painful to watch, especially when the car is rare and has an important history. And, such is the case with Pat Doran’s beast of a Ford RS200 EVO. If the RS200 name sounds familiar, that’s because Ford built it between 1984 and 1986. It was a homologation special that was produced in just 200 examples and was powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that was good for around 250 horsepower. It was built by Ford of Great Britain, but that’s not the car you’re about to see get literally ripped to pieces – no; this is an RS200 Evolution, a Group B rally car that was built in just 24 examples.

Unfortunately, this is one of those cars that you don’t want to see crash, but as Doran was attempting to negotiate a rather tight turn on the hill, he went off the road just a bit and ended up losing control. At first, it looked as if he was going to save it, but the momentum was just a little too much and his rear quarter nailed a bale of hay, practically ripping the rear end right apart. The car didn’t exactly fare well, be Doran survived the incident without injury and even took a bow before stepping away from what was left of his treasured RS200. Whether or not the car is repairable or not remains to be seen, but with any luck, it’s salvageable. Keep reading to see the crash and to learn a little more about the RS200 Evolution.

Ford unleashes Line-Lock on Mustang Ecoboost

Staying true to its character as the quintessential muscle, Ford Mustang is now getting a feature that is every muscle car enthusiasts dream. It’s the the electronic line-lock which will be a standard feature on all 2018 Mustang models later this year, making burnouts easier than ever. They should call it the hooligan option. 

The line-lock is currently only available as a track-only option on the V8 GT version, but soon even the 2018 Mustang EcoBoost with its four-cylinder engine will get the feature.So no matter which Mustang you get, it will be able to make you like a colossal douchebag who likes to rev its engine, spin its tire, make cacophonous noises and produce a huge amount of smoke. Burnout is a mindless, pointless and frankly stupid thing to do. And like most stupid things it is also really, really fun.

Ford says the 2018 Mustang line-lock feature is for drag racers to heat up the tire rubber for improved traction prior to the race, but we all know it is going to be used predominantly by big, fat city boys with an American flag tattoo on their arms and a pistol in the glove compartment. The system is activated steering wheel-mounted thumb switches whereupon, on models equipped with an available 12-inch, all-digital instrument display, drivers will see an industry-first, video-game-like animation of a spinning alloy wheel kicking up a cloud of smoke to indicate when the electronic line-lock feature is activated. Line-lock is available with either the 10-speed SelectShift automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
