The 2017 Ford GT is, without question, a tremendous marvel of an exotic supercar, pushing the envelope in technology, performance, appearance, engineering, and cool features. It also shares its engine block with the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. This fact alone will cause many people—exotic car purists—to dismiss the GT as not…
A string of drug busts in Minnesota involving marijuana being smuggled across the border in brand new Ford Fusions has triggered an ongoing investigation. It is believed that the cartel of former drug lord “El Chapo” is involved.
Okay, so I know the reason why—because Ford has a new marketing deal with Marvel to promote its latest car through the medium of cosmic superheroes. But come on. If the Star-Lord’s ship the Milano could have feelings, it would be very hurt right now.
Early this morning, WikiLeaks tweeted and then deleted a strange message that appeared to be a mistake. But the bizarre tweet wasn’t about secret government documents or even a link to hardcore porn. It was something much weirder: A link to an ad for the Ford Raptor pickup truck.
Trade. It has a nice connotation: You give me this, I’ll give you something of equal value in return. When it comes to trade deals—the North American Free Trade Agreement, in particular—the connotation isn’t so pleasant. Incoming U.S. President Donald Trump went after it heavily this during the election cycle. But…
Besides the bonkers official announcements from Ford about a new Bronco and Ranger, the automaker made waves at this week’s Detroit Auto Show with a TED talk-like event about how to transform cities of the future with the technology we’re enraptured with today—electric and autonomous vehicles, all that good stuff. But…
President-elect Donald Trump slammed Ford in his campaign but the company has slithered ever closer to him in recent months, and now the company’s CEO Mark Fields has joined in Trump’s fight against the Environmental Protection Agency’s stringent looming fuel economy standards.
Ford introduced the all-new 2018 Ford Fiesta in a big warehouse they disguised as a club in Germany, so naturally they invited a production-line robot to come disk jockey the launch party.
Ford Fusion Power!
Over the course of his candidacy, President-elect Donald Trump has scorned automakers—particularly Ford— who “send jobs elsewhere” by building plants outside of the U.S. Now that Trump will be the next president, the industry is concerned about its copious investments outside of the U.S.
Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump continued to voice his concern and disdain for Ford’s movement of its small car production from the United States to Mexico shortly into Monday night’s debate. The automaker took to Twitter to defend itself.
You might take a self-driving car home from the bar in five years. Ford announced plans today to build a fully autonomous vehicle to sell to ride-sharing services such as Uber by 2021. The proposed vehicle would not include a steering wheel, gas tank, or brake pedals.
This year Ford is launching the first major revamp of its Super Duty pickup line since 1999. The company is very proud of the trucks’ massive cargo capacity, and an objectively cool new cupholder design it’s patenting. It’s a shame Ford will never share data that’s more relevant to customers, like fuel economy…
If you thought it took talent to stay up all hours of the day and night for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the guy who built one of the competing Ford GT cars out of Legos will probably make your accomplishment feel slightly less special.
While other autonomous cars continue to grapple with things like trying to figure out where lanes are on poorly painted roads, Ford’s self-driving project managed to develop a vehicle that doesn’t even need to see ahead. Ford didn’t let it, either—they shut off the headlights and let the car loose in total darkness.
If you don’t enjoy driving in the dark, Ford’s latest autonomous car tests will cheer you up. The company’s announced that it’s been successfully testing its cars at nighttime, a scenario that brings its own set of fairly obvious challenges for self-driving vehicles.
Backing into a parking spot is an impossible challenge for many drivers. How about backing up while also towing a trailer? That could get at least a little easier with a nifty feature on the upcoming 2017 Ford Super Duty pickup, called Trailer Reverse Guidance.
If Ford has its way, we’ll all be comfortably watching porn (or a nice movie) while hurtling along the highway at 70 miles-per-hour.
How soon before cars start driving themselves on race tracks? Maybe it’s in the cards, based on this Ford patent application for “Selectable Autonomous Driving Modes.” One of these modes was called “racecar” mode, and it’s exactly what you think it is.
