Preview of 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt before Detroit auto show

Ford let out the world’s worst-kept secret Sunday night, revealing the 2019 Mustang Bullitt before its debut at the Detroit auto show. It appeared on stage with a surviving dark Highland green 1968 Mustang GT fastback from the classic film starring Steve McQueen. The new Mustang keeps the current 5.0-liter V8, but output is bumped to “at least 475 hp,” according to

Ford is making space or autonomous production in Michigan by moving EV production to Mexico

Ford Motor Co. is moving planned production of an electric crossover with a 300-mile range to Mexico from Michigan to make way for additional investment on autonomous vehicles in its home state. Ford still plans to begin to build the battery-electric crossover in summer 2020, but it will be assembled at its plant in Cuautitlan

The 2018 Ford Mustang GT Has 460 HP

Shortly after it debuted in January, we guessed that the updated-for-2018 Mustang GTwould offer 455 hp. Unfortunately we were wrong. Ford announced today that the 2018 GT actually makes 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and impressively, runs from 0-60 mph in under 4.0 seconds. Sounds good to us. To achieve that acceleration figure, you'll have to

The Ford Ranger’s comeback is near, practically it’s here

Obviously we are at time when the smallest pickup trucks which are available in the U.S. are styled after locomotives, they're also that big. But as General Motors has lately showed to us with the presentation of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon that there is still a place in the market of trucks for something smaller than it should

Jay Leno samples 1951 Ford Coupe

A 1951 Ford is a pretty regular vehicle. For this particular model year, the Blue Oval filled its model lineup with a Tudor Sedan, the Victoria hardtop, a Country Squire wagon, and the Crestliner sport sedan. Engine choices fell between a 3.7-liter inline-6 and a 3.9-liter flathead V-8. These were modest cars for modest times.

Ford Fiesta 1.0LE in the U.S.

The ST is definitely our favorite version of the Ford Fiesta, but it’s far from the only one that’s fun to drive. In fact, the Fiesta with the smallest engine Ford puts in a car ended up being an absolute blast. Its tiny 1.0-liter turbocharged I-3 only makes 123 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, but it’s remarkably refined and a

The Ford Fiesta ST will not come to America

When Ford finally revealed the new-generation Fiesta ST back in February, we were ecstatic. Well, I was ecstatic, because I owned a Fiesta ST and loved it to death. According to this latest report, it seems the new generation Fiesta ST—and any other version of the new Fiesta, for that matter—will not be coming to America. It's a dark

Only Australia is getting Ford Ranger Raptor

Australia has all the luck. Not only did they keep El Camino-style runabouts for decades after us in the U.S., now they get a Raptor version of the midsize Ford Ranger pickup, to boot. We know nothing about this car except that Ford confirmed it IS building it for the Asia-Pacific market. And we also know that we in

100th birthday of the Ford pickup truck

According to Ford, its first official pickup rolled out of a Highland Park, Michigan, assembly plant on July 27, 1917. Aimed at farmers, the truck was ready to be used and abused by the people Henry Ford grew up around. Over the next 100 years, the truck transformed from a farm implement and industry tool to
