America's Ford hot hatch dreams are ending, but not Europe's

The driving style required to get the most out of a Fiesta ST requires braking late into the corner to turn the car on its nose. Which sounds fun until you start dwelling on the potential consequences of running out of hairpin to play on, there being little more than a curb-height wall between you and oblivion. The ability not to worry about that is what separates rally champions such as Ogier from the rest of us, but the ST successfully offers a sense of that driving style to those with average

Here's what the $6,500 upgrade gets you on the track

We get it. Superfans only want to hear about the yin versus yang. iPhone versus Android. Batman versus Superman. The Ford Mustang versus its Bizarro World twinsie/frenemy, the Chevy Camaro.

America's pony car is better than ever

Our new long-term 2018 Ford Mustang GT has been in our hands for just a few days, but we've already tacked a few thousand miles on to the odometer. Unlike most of our test vehicles, Ford allowed us to option the car ourselves. We then let you, our faithful audience, choose most of the features for us. You can read all about it in our introductory post. At $51,470, our car isn't cheap, but it does come with a hell of a lot of equipment for the price.

It's a million bucks worth of fun for just $250,000

One hundred miles per hour, 6,000 rpm. I shift up to fourth gear at the start/finish line and return the throttle to the floor. The 289 cubic inch V8 revs quickly, feels great over four grand, and sings a sweet howl from the Mustang's side-exiting exhaust. We're at Willow Springs Raceway driving a 1965 Shelby GT350 Competition model, a brand-new build constructed by the Original Venice Crew, with license from both Carroll Shelby Licensing and the Ford Motor Company. And I'm four-wheel-drifting i

Testing the Indian-made small crossover on American roads

The rest of the world is already familiar with the Ford EcoSport. Now the small crossover is available to U.S. customers for the first time. Incidentally, it's the first car built in India to be sold here. As Ford begins to lean more heavily on its crossovers at a time when it plans to discontinue most of its cars, the EcoSport is the most diminutive in its lineup. It's available with two engine options: a 1.0-liter three-cylinder Ecoboost, and a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter. Front- and all-whe

Our Orange Fury pony car is finally here

When Ford offered Autoblog the chance to spec out our own 2018 Ford Mustang, we jumped at the opportunity. Who wouldn't want some extended seat time in the latest version of the original pony car? After waiting out the long, cold winter (and a pre-delivery mishap that required the repainting of a bumper), our new Mustang is finally here.

Do you like trucks?

The 2018 Ford F-150 is the latest love in America's long affair with full-size trucks. For decades, the F-150 has ruled the roost. Ford sold nearly 900,000 F-series pickups, a great deal of them F-150s, in 2017 and is on pace to eclipse that for 2018. Ford is going so in on trucks and SUVs that it's dropping all but two cars from its North American lineup. Money talks, so give the people what they want.

America's best-selling pickup gets a new diesel engine

In 2014, FCA finally offered a diesel engine in a light-duty truck. The resulting Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was a success, offering V6 fuel economy with V8 capabilities. Other automakers immediately took notice. When the refreshed 2018 Ford F-150 was introduced early in 2017, a Power Stroke diesel variant was announced. Finally, after more than a year of anticipation, we're at the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains to drive Ford's new oil burner.

A massive leap forward in nearly every aspect

The 2018 Ford Expedition is the fourth generation of Ford's full-size SUV offering. It replaced a model that traced its roots to the early 2000s, though it received several heavy refreshes along the way. When it first debuted, the SUV was just kicking off. Full-sized models like the Expedition, Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon ruled the roost. It would be a few years before high gas prices shifted customers into smaller, more efficient crossovers. Ford let the Expedition saunter along while the Tahoe,

GT 350's magnetic dampers transform and improve four-cylinder 'Stang

Happy Mustang Day! On April 17, 1964, the original pony car was introduced to the world and phenomena was born. So, in honor of one of the greatest American cars that ever was and continues to be, let's take a quick spin in the latest version, the 2018 Ford Mustang that received a number of key updates this year.

More power, more wheels, and more outrageousness

Between the rampant exotics and the lurking classics, it takes some seriously special sheetmetal to stand out in car-clogged Malibu. But this triumphantly conspicuous ride is John Hennessey's stab at the already imposing Ford F-150 Raptor, a wicked transmogrification of the offroad-effective 4x4 into an over-the-top six-wheeled, three-axle'd behemoth. And here I am, trying to keep this hulking steed centered in its lane on the gently winding Kanan Dume Road, when a carload of teenagers fills my

For too long, the Expedition hasn’t been a contender. That ends today.

Packed with Ford Performance parts, but it's no V8.
