Earlier today, we showed you the Ford GT rejection letter, and we all had a good cry, together. As you know, though, even when a car company gets to decide who is worth the privilege of buying their car, some people must be getting good news, right? Happily, we’ve now managed to get samples of all the types of letters…
Way back in 1971, the year the first CPU (Intel’s 4004) was born, another milestone in man’s tool-making skills was unveiled: the white panel van with a big-ass engine stuck in the middle. Ladies, and gentlemen, meet the Supervan.
Ford has cancelled 220 orders for the 2016 Ford Focus RS and shifted them to the 2017 model year, citing “exceeded expectations” for demand of the new AWD drift-happy hatchback, and upsetting a couple hundred owners in the process.
We, as Americans, love excess. There’s no getting around it. We love huge TVs, huge houses, big food and big horsepower. And the 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 is the embodiment of that love.
If you want the new trucktracular twin-turbo V6 2017 Ford Raptor—and really, who doesn’t?—here’s how much it’s apparently going to reduce your bank account.
The 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks, which includes F-250, F-350, and the pickup truck version of the F-450, have been fully redesigned for the first time since pogs were currency and your dad had a pager. And the new capability claims, well, they’re big.
It turns out that a clever and economical way to save weight in a Ford could involve adding tequila.
The new Ford Focus RS is easily one of this year’s most hotly anticipated cars. Turns out, though, actually getting one into your driveway might be a little harder than you’d expect. One owner says that he’s been waiting to take delivery of his Focus RS for two months now, and now, he has no idea where the car…
Servicing the new Ford GT seems like a total nightmare based on an article from All Ford Mustangs, which claims to have a Ford internal memo detailing what dealers have to go through to do even basic work on the sexy GT. The hurdles include requiring a special clean room, transporting the cars to and from clients on…
Ford has decorated a Shelby GT350 as a tribute to legendary U.S. Air Force pilot Bob Hoover and his P-51 stunt plane “Ole Yeller.” It will be auctioned off for charity, which is wonderful. But why’d they have to go and make it look like a tuner car from 2001?
Forget Subarus—this is the kind of vehicle you need for a good rally. A ‘66 Ford pickup.
When the new Ford GT debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, we lost our minds over its sheer sexiness. Now Ford has released a clip of the supercar in a wind tunnel, and—once again—we’re having a hard time keeping it together.
We reported a few months ago that Ford’s 2017 F-150 was going to debut with a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which was expected to make 365 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Well, Ford just called me out of the blue to inform me that their power numbers are actually higher than initial estimates. Great news!
Whenever the time for Cars and Coffee rolls around, there’s the undeniable chance that a soon-to-be-wrecked Ford Mustang will roll up to the lot.
