Ford Offers 7-Year Loans on the Maverick and It’s a Huge Problem

Ford is a business. Hell, it’s in their name: Ford Motor Company. That means, come the end of the day, they have to turn a profit to keep the lights on. Well, that and to make more excellent Ford GT’s. However, business sense and morality often collide. Usually, one wins over the other. That’s why we’re here. Unfortunately, business may have beat out morality again (hi there, Tesla). Now, it’s time to examine why the American motor company’s loans may be predatory towards buyers.

Cops Use Unmarked Ford Mustang GT To Stop Lamborghini Urus

These days, a Crown Vic isn't the most common cop car out there. Not even a Dodge Charger is. It's the Ford Explorer Interceptor, which is still pretty good as an undercover vehicle as it blends in far better than the conspicuous sedan that has also been a popular machine for NYC taxis. As impressive as the Explorer is, it's not always ideal for undercover work. In Texas, police have been known to use stealthy Chevy Camaros for highway patrol, and Florida seems to be going the pony car route too. In the below video, we see a red Mustang GT at work.

Ford CEO Goes Wild In 1,400-HP Mustang Mach-E

In case you haven't seen Ford v Ferrari, there's an epic scene where Carroll Shelby shows Henry Ford II where all his millions went. Ford rides shotgun with Shelby, who absolutely hammers the famous GT40 on an abandoned airfield. Ford, seemingly not used to such performance, breaks out in tears. It's only at the end of the scene that we found out the tears aren't due to fear but rather a mix of sadness and elation. You see, Ford was sad that his father never got to see the famous Ford badge pasted to the front of something as visceral as the GT40.

2021 Ford F-150 XLT PowerBoost Hybrid Review: Thunder Before the Lightning

Gasoline-electric hybrid pickup trucks have always been a good idea, and it's frankly disappointing it's taken this long for an automaker to build a good one. As good as the 2021 Ford F-150 XLT Powerboost is, though, it'll be even better when the last few programming wrinkles are ironed out.

How Much Would You Pay For Kevin Hart’s Custom 1977 Ford Bronco?

A 1977 Ford Bronco extensively modified for Kevin Hart is heading to auction later this week and will be sold with no reserve. Sitting beneath the skin of the unique Bronco is a 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8 engine with a new upper and lower intake manifold and mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and a Dana transfer case. Power is sent through all four wheels and while it is unclear just how much power the Bronco has, it is obviously much faster than a standard 1977 Bronco.

2022 Nissan 400Z, A New Ford Mustang Rival, Set For August Reveal

Last fall, Nissan revealed the Z Proto, a thinly-disguised concept car preview of a new, forthcoming Z model, which is expected to be called the 400Z. Reviving the “Z” moniker is a big deal for the Japanese automaker, which has applied that designation to its performance vehicles since the 1970s. Now, we have a reveal date for the production version of the Z Proto – the 2022 Nissan 400Z – and it’s set for August 17th, 2021.

Ford Could Revive the "Splash" Name for an Electric Ranger or Maverick

Ford used the “Splash” badge on a sportier version of the second-year Ranger from the 90s. Ford’s revival of old monikers continues. After bringing back the Bronco last year and resurrecting the ‘Lightning’ nameplate for the recently-unveiled electric F-150, Ford has now filed the ‘Splash’ name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The trademark covers ‘Electric vehicles’, so we know this will be an EV. If history suggests anything, it might be the electric version of the Ranger. But, the automaker has a third pickup truck in its arsenal now – the Maverick.

Gorilla Glass Windshields Coming For Jeep Wrangler, Gladiator, But What About The Ford Bronco?

Stone chips and cracked windshields are a nemesis for vehicle owners of all kinds, but they’re even more worrisome for Jeep owners, apparently. Some believe Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator models are more prone to broken windshields thanks to their upright position, while off-roading certainly doesn’t help in that regard, either. But it appears that help is on the way, as Jeep is reportedly allowing owners to order Gorilla Glass windshields, according to Mopar Insiders.

Ford built an F-Series 'Lightning' pickup in 1953. Here's why

June 16 marks the anniversary of Ford's incorporation in 1903 and it's a very different company than it was 118 years ago. Back then it's only vehicle was the Model A, which was an open-top car with an eight horsepower two-cylinder engine that sold for $850, which is equivalent to about $26,000 today. It was nearly a month before the first order came in on July 15 to keep the startup afloat.

Back in January, Ken Block and Ford announced that the two were ending their 10-year relationship so that Block could pursue new opportunities.
