Ford Didn’t Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco
When the Bronco was unveiled, a lot of us were disappointed by the absence of a V-8 mill. But, we still had hopes that it could become a reality someday. However, Ford made it clear that a V-8 will not be offered here. Although we had our deliberations, this confirmation from Ford served as the final nail in the coffin.
It has now come to light that Ford was sure about not offering one right from the start. In fact, it even built the Bronco without bothering to check if a V-8 engine could be plonked in or not! Speaking with Ford Authority, Bronco’s Chief Engineer, Eric Loefller said that they hadn’t even given it a shot during its development days.
Ford Unveils The 2022 E-Transit Electric Van
In an interview recently, Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley said, “There’s been a lot written about the electrification of our industry and Ford’s bet is different. We’re betting on a full lineup of commercial electrified vehicles.”
Well, it looks like the company has started its journey in the segment by unveiled the electric version of the world’s best-selling cargo van, the E-Transit. The van comes with connected services, an on-board generator, a range of 126 miles, and most importantly, a starting price of under $45,000. Will the E-Transit be as successful as the standard Transit?
Cool Car For Sale: 2018 Ford GT
The mid-engined Ford GT first debuted back in 2004 and was in production for a couple of years. Based on the credibility of the GT40, which recorded four consecutive 24 Hours of Le Mans wins from 1966 to 1969, this moniker is significant in the company’s history.
In 2015, Ford announced that the GT was being brought back after a decade-long exile. The car is selling like hotcakes and a number of special editions are already launched, but there’s no denying that the GT is still quite an exclusive car. However, one example recently arrived on Bring-a-Trailer and has caught our attention.
Your Next Crate Engine Should Be the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 "Predator" V-8

According to Ford Authority, the automaker will offer the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s heart as a crate engine. The details surrounding it are still scarce, but this is exciting!
This Police Chase With a 6x6 Hennessey Velociraptor Truck is the Most L.A. Thing Ever
A Hennessey Velociraptor 6x6 belonging to DJ Marshmello has found itself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The massive custom Ford Raptor with three axles and six wheels featured in one of the most surreal car chases in Los Angeles in recent memory after a lunatic stole it in a local dealership where it was being serviced. The lengthy police pursuit ultimately ended when the driver of the VelociRaptor crashed into a light pole outside of a Taco Bell. The driver’s identity has yet to be released, but he did find himself with plenty of charges on his hands.
Ford Draws The Evolutionary Line At the Electric F-150
Ford hasn’t revealed a lot of details about the electric F-150 yet. Other than its train-pulling stunt and the teaser image revealed recently, there isn’t much known about it. Now, however, we have a big update. As it turns out, Ford doesn’t have any plans to build an electric Super Duty truck. Ford is the best truck seller for decades now, so this might come as a shock to a lot of customers who were probably looking to upgrade to an electric Super Duty in the future. But, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that we saw it coming.
A 6.8-Liter, Pushrod V-8 Could Land in the Ford F-150 And Mustang by 2022
Ford’s Godzilla engine is old news now, as there’s a new 6.8-liter V-8 powerhouse in the works. This news comes courtesy of the President of a Canadian trade union for auto workers, who claims that Ford is building a new 6.8-liter V-8 engine. While unconfirmed by Ford, this engine is expected to be offered in both the F-150 and the Mustang.
The Current-Gen Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Just Got More Valuable
After five years on the market, Ford decided to discontinue the Shelby GT350 based on the sixth-generation Mustang. Introduced in 2015, the Shelby GT350 and the GT350R won’t be offered for the 2021 model year. If you already own one, this is good news as the value of the GT350 is likely to go up. If you missed on the GT350, well, you can always go for the beefed-up GT500.
Ford Knows It Can’t Compete With Porsche and Tesla; More Affordable EVs Coming
Ford is the world’s fifth-largest automaker and there is a reason behind it. One can argue the company’s strategic moves over the years, but there’s no denying that Ford knows what it’s doing. Now with the world moving towards electrification, Ford has decided to pick its battles carefully and position itself as more of an affordable EV maker than a premium one that sells cars with six-digit price tags.
The company’s CEO, Jim Farley, has promised that Ford will be making electric vehicles starting from as low as $20,000 and not go past the $70,000 bracket. It looks like Ford is going for volume over profits in this segment. Is it a smart move?
2021 Ford Bronco V-8 VelociRaptor by Hennessey
The only chink in Bronco’s armor is the missing V-8 engine under the hood. Although Ford matched the Jeep Wrangler in every aspect, dare I say, even better in some, the lack of a V-8 will be a deal-breaker for some folks. However, aftermarket tuners have grabbed on to this opportunity. PaxPower was one of the first companies to announce a Bronco V-8 and soon many companies jumped the wagon. The latest one to do so is Hennessey Performance.
Hennessey has announced that it will be building a VelociRaptor version of the Ford Bronco with a V-8 mill that will churn out 750 horses. This will be a limited-edition build and will cost around four-times the cost of a standard Bronco. Is it worth it?
The Ford Escape ST Could Humble The VW Tiguan R and Hyundai Tucson N Line
As crossovers and SUVs remain crowd favorites, carmakers are looking to further milk the cash cow by offering souped-up versions for their high-riding people and grocery carriers. The latest rumor to hit the internet has to do with Ford and the fact that the Blue Oval believes slapping the ST badge on the Escape is “a fantastic idea.”
The Ford Mach-E 1400 Has a Very Silent Affair With Goodwood Speed Week
Ford has entered the electric SUV realm with the Mustang Mach-E, a sporty hauler capable of up to 459 horsepower and up to 300 miles of range. But FoMoCo didn’t stop here and also created a monstrous race-spec Mach-E. Fitted with no fewer than seven electric motors that deliver a combined 1,400 horsepower, the Mustang Mach-E 1400 is downright spectacular when it comes to performance, but it also looks cool in its race-inspired suit. The SUV was recently showcased at Goodwood Speed Week, where master drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. proved that you don’t need gasoline power to do donuts.
2020 Ford Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept
Post the big debut, the Ford Bronco and its urban-alter ego are busy with various other activities. The Bronco Sport recently won the 2020 Rebelle Rally in its category in stock condition, and now Ford has announced the Bronco will don the emergency vehicle outfit to support the National Forest Foundation.
Ford has teamed up with Filson, an outdoor outfitter, to develop the Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept. It is customized with firefighting equipment and Ford will donate two examples for the cause.
Watch a Ford Galaxie Kick Major Ass At 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek
You don’t often see a 3,600-pound 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 participating in any kind of sanctioned race. Even rare is the sight of a Galaxie 500 destroying the competition in a sanctioned race at the 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek. Driven by 2016 BTCC Championship runner-up Sam Tordoff, the mountain of a Ford tore through a field of classic race cars that included Lotus Cortinas and Mini Coopers as if those cars were battery-operated. It was an incredible display of nostalgic might for a car that, back in its time, was considered too fast for track racing and too heavy for drag racing. More than 50 years after it was launched, the Galaxie 500 finally had its day at the 2020 Goodwood SpeedWeek, and it was glorious to see.
Amazing Car for Sale: 2005 Ford GT
The Ford GT needs to introduction. This car won four consecutive Le Mans races in the late 1960s. The supercar has a long history, and all its credibility was shifted to the street-legal performance car from the automaker at the turn of the century. At the 2002 North American International Auto Show, the company unveiled the GT40 Concept and the first-gen production year cars rolled out a couple of years later.
Ford sold a little over 2,000 examples in the car’s first year on sale in 2005, and one of those examples is now up for sale at a Bring-a-Trailer auction. This 2005 GT, in the classic Red shade, has just over 1,100 clicks on the odometer, and is definitely one to collect, provided you have around a quarter-million bucks to spare. Bid away?
Ford Will Sell the Mustang Mach 1 In Europe, But There’s a Big Catch
The Ford Mustang Mach 1 is headed to the Old Continent. No, it’s not going there for test runs at the Nurburgring — it already did that — nor is it going there to be showcased at an auto event — it just made its debut at Goodwood SpeedWeek — only to return to the U.S. as an America-only special edition Mustang. The Mustang Mach 1 is coming to Europe, and, more importantly, it will be staying in Europe.
