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.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mustang to Get Standard Line-Lock Feature

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.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost to Come Standard with Line-Lock

The V-8-powered Ford Mustang GT has come standard with electronic line lock as a part of the track pack since its redesign in 2015, but for 2018, Ford has announced that it will now include that feature on the EcoBoost models as well – effectively giving those who want some EcoBoost love a much easy way of roasting some rubber. For those of you that don’t know, a line lock system, applies pressure to the front brakes only, making it possible for those with a six-speed manual to roast the tires without some impressively difficult footwork, while those with the automatic transmission don’t have to risk burning their transmission fluid or burning up the rear brakes from doing a traditional brake torque. Think of it as an emergency brake for the front wheels.

When Ford introduced the sixth-generation Mustang for the 2015 model year, it was met with enthusiasm from pony car fanboys everywhere. As part of the generational shift, the Mustang grew in width by 1.5 inches, sat 1.4 inches lower, and came with an all-new independent rear suspension system. More important was the new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that served as a middle point between the entry-level 3.7-liter V-6 and the 5.0-liter Coyote V-8. After just three years on the market, the sixth-gen Mustang was up for a facelift and Ford decided to drop the V-6, leaving just the EcoBoost and the V-8. It’s not surprising considering the EcoBoost delivers 10 more ponies than the V-6 while offering better efficiency. There was no need for a V-6 and consumers knew it. Now limited to two engine options in the standard Mustang, Ford is ensuring both are equally capable at the dragstrip.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang GT P-51 by Roush Performance

Roush Performance is no stranger to developing tuning programs for the Ford Mustang. In fact, it’s built a good legacy from it, thanks in part to beauties like the RS3 and Trak Pak kits. This time though, Roush Performance is shaking things up with the P-51, a 727-horsepower behemoth the noted Ford tuner is claiming as the most powerful “re-titled” Mustang creation ever.

It’s hard to disagree with those claims, especially with the added disclaimer of being pre-titled as opposed to most post-titled programs where the output of the P-51 has been exceeded on so many occasions, including some of Roush Performance’s past tuning projects. But the P-51 is coming off the Roush production lot as a brand new Mustang that’s already been fitted with the kit, power upgrades and all. On top of that, it also features extensive aero upgrades on the exterior, a dressed-up interior, and the whole cache of being inspired by the iconic P-51 Mustang fighter planes that played big roles during the second World War. It’s taken a while for Roush Performance to present the full-blown P-51 Mustang after first releasing a sneak peek at the 2106 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas last year. Turns out, the tuner was onto something with this creation and now that it’s out, we can at least say that it was worth the wait.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Expedition Gets FX4 Off Road Package

expeidtion fx4 off road

When you think of a good off road SUV Ford Expedition is probably not even the last name that pops into your mind. That name is more likely to come up when one is seeking the biggest utility vehicle to move stuff around… or to live in. Still, Ford has gone ahead and given the 2018 version of the big hippo an FX4 off road package. 

Said to make the 2018 Ford Expedition “more capable on trails and unpaved surfaces,” the off road package is, on paper, a good one with all the necessary bits and bobs such a off-road-tuned shocks, all-new electronic limited-slip rear differential, skid plates, side steps, and a new Terrain Management System.

For you techhead off roaders out there, the 2018 Ford Expedition FX4 gets an electronic limited-slip rear differential capable of automatically varying power output side-to-side, depending on which wheels need extra traction. With 3.73:1 gearing, the electronic limited-slip rear differential also improves towing performance and capability.What’s more, the SUV has all-terrain tires and Seven different skid plates that serve as underbody armor and protect critical areas: turbocharger intercoolers, steering gear, engine, transmission and transfer case and a full-length guard for the fuel tank.

Ford worked tirelessly to improve the current F-150 by reducing mass and adding efficient turbocharged engines all mounted on a high-strength steel frame. For 2018, those same advancements make their way to the all-new Expedition. Nearly every nut and bolt is new, even down to the drivetrain. Ford’s updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost with 375 horsepower is paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission, bringing more power with better fuel efficiency. The Expedition’s body panels are now aluminum and its interior shares many design cues from the F-Series pickups.

The 2018 Expedition rides on a modified version of the F-150’s fully boxed steel frame, but uses a four-wheel independent suspension system for a smooth ride. Both the standard-length Expedition and long-wheelbase Expedition MAX versions return, but Ford says the three-row SUV drops more than 300 pounds over the outgoing model. Technology improvements are vast, as well, including all the modern active safety equipment like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. The in-dash tech also sees a big improvement, with Ford’s Sync 3 system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for 10 devices in a 50-foot perimeter around the SUV. The familiar trim levels return, too, including XLT, Limited, and Platinum. The base XL trim is available for fleet customers as well. New for 2018 is an FX4 Off-Road package for the XLT trim. It brings added hardware for tackling harsh terrain, while set apart with visual changes.

Update 06/19/2017: Ford announced horsepower and torque specs for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, along with a higher-output version in the Platinum trim. A new FX4 Off-Road package debuts for the XLT trim.
