Henry Ford is practically revered as the patron saint of American cars, and the Model T is his holy text. But it wouldn’t have happened if not for the life, and possibly the death, of two of his biggest rivals: the Dodge brothers. And if it weren’t for a small complication, such as the most deadly pandemic in recorded…
The 2019 Ford Raptor takes a powerful truck that’s already excellent on dirt trails and adds adaptive dampers and off-road cruise control. They’re relatively minor changes, but the result is that the beast that is the second-gen Raptor now has an even bigger set of muscles.
We Americans love how the inside of a new car smells. It’s scented like hot plastic and straight-from-the-factory glues. Mmmm. But consumers in China do not. And because our country is terrible now, and China is comparatively not, Ford is working on a way to eliminate the old standby of New Car Smell.
John Cena’s former 2017 Ford GT heading to auction has become the new norm, like reality got stuck somewhere along the way, on a vicious loop. It’s like popping your favorite CD from 2003 into the nearly obsolete CD player in your nearly obsolete car, hoping it won’t get stuck 30 seconds into the first song again, but…
If America won’t get its shit together on EVs, maybe China will do it for us. That and more on The Morning Shift on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018.
The White House won’t impose new tariffs on imported cars, at least not right now, car companies band together to save the electric vehicle tax credit, tequila makers are mad at Elon Musk and so much more for The Morning Shift on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018.
Earlier today, photos from a Ford event taken by somebody who has almost certainly been killed by now circulated of what appears to be the upcoming Ford Bronco or Baby Bronco. But everyone was so excited we seemed to have missed an easter egg revealing the crossover to be the Baby Bronco for sure, while also hinting…
For years now we’ve been patiently waiting for Ford to disappoint us with a new generation of the classic Ford Bronco, some watered-down flabby design that won’t match the original’s chunky looks. Well, we were all wrong.
A 2017 Ford GT supercar popped up on Mecum Auctions’ website in May, but it wasn’t just its 647 horsepower or potential to sell for triple MSRP that garnered attention: It was also whether Ford would sue Mecum for selling it at all. Ford did, the day the car sold, and the lawsuit ended in a settlement this week.
The year is winding down and the number of cars with free-breathing engines and six-speed manuals is dwindling depressingly. The 2018 Ford Mustang GT, however, remains one of the purist new sports cars that you can buy. It’s fantastic to drive, and the Performance Pack Level 2 accentuates its aggression.
Toyota is making tons of money and is looking to cut its product offerings, extreme corruption within the UAW, and is Elon Musk a commenter? All that and more in The Morning Shift for November 6th, 2018.
If 1990s SUVs are about to become hot collectibles, I welcome the day when the Eddie Bauer Edition Ford Explorer—aka The Car Everyone’s Parents Had When I Was In High School—becomes this rad family hauler again. Just be careful what tires go on it.

It’s Halloween, so here’s the scariest car-thing I could think of. Gaze in horror at what a Ford Mustang looked like in 1975!
Ford Mustangs drift. This much we know. But that doesn’t mean that you, an individual with no prior experience, should try drifting your Mustang randomly in public. So when I tell you about the new Series 1 Mustang RTR option, I’m also telling you that you shouldn’t think you automatically become a drift king if you…
While cleaning my house on Saturday, I took a peek under a tarp in my garage, and rediscovered a car that I hadn’t really thought about in years: my “secret” 1966 Ford Mustang. It’s a vehicle that’s just been sitting for nearly a decade, and I think I need to do something about it.
