FIRST LOOK: 2017 Ford Ranger 2.2 FX4 video review

FIRST LOOK: 2017 Ford Ranger 2.2 FX4 video review

The Ford Ranger FX4 was launched in April this year to serve as the pick-up truck’s flagship 2.2 litre model, just as the Wildtrak is to the 3.2 litre line-up. The new variant offers plenty of Wildtrak-like equipment (but not quite the full package), commanding a price of RM121,888 – that’s a near-RM7k premium over the 2.2 XLT, but well under the full-fat Wildtrak’s eye-watering RM140k price tag. On the outside, it gets a piano black grille with matching side mirrors and door handles, along with unique 18-inch wheels in grey and a sticker job on the front bonnet, along the sides and the tailgate. The FX4 also features a blacked-out sports bar and roof rails, while a…Read entire story

The Schropp Tuning Ford Mustang is a German Muscle Car

The Schropp Tuning Ford Mustang is a German Muscle Car

Two flavors of brutal power. There really isn’t anything like the Ford Mustang in Germany. The rear-wheel drive, two-door muscle car stuffed with a fat V-8 engine is pure Red, White, and Blue. It’s a rarer sight in Germany, and Schropp Tuning has the ability to make one into somewhat of an exotic with two different tuning programs. The naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 engine was the perfect starting point for the Schropp Tuning team. The first stage is the SF600 conversion includes a new supercharger along with an ECU remap to accommodate for the added boost and push output to 600 horsepower. Also coming standard is an SCT-X4-Flasher that includes the standard ECU map as a backup. For those that…Read entire story

When you Wheelie Hard but Still Win the Drag Race

When you Wheelie Hard but Still Win the Drag Race

Someone is going to need a new pair of pants. Drag Racing can be a very crazy and dangerous form of motorsports. Accidents can happen and at those insane speeds, so can injuries or even death. That’s exactly why this J.R. Pines probably needed a new pair of pants after his unconventional win at the drag strip. During ‘Lights Out 8’ in Georgia, Pines was matched up against a Fox Body Ford Mustang with his New Edge Mustang. After the lights turned green and both drivers nailed the throttle, Pines’ car shot back and into the air for a serious wheelie. But Pines didn’t let that stop him as he continued …Read entire story

Ford Mustang gets a two-star Euro NCAP safety rating

Ford Mustang gets a two-star Euro NCAP safety rating

Euro NCAP has released results of the first cars to be tested against its 2017 test regime, and one of these, the Ford Mustang, has scored a low two-star rating for overall safety. The safety organisation cites concerns about the sixth-gen S550s crash protection of adult and child occupants as well as a worrying lack of safety equipment commonly available on the European market. It adds that the results reveal the American “DNA” of the Mustang that is designed to score well in less wide-ranging US consumer tests. The European variant has seen only minor updates required to meet the continent’s pedestrian safety regulation, …Read entire story

2018 Ford Mustang could get Boss 302 variant, teased in press photos

2018 Ford Mustang could get Boss 302 variant, teased in press photos

The facelifted 2018 Ford Mustang was revealed earlier this week, but the Blue Oval may have been hiding an extra member of the family in the new pony car’s press shots. In an image of the Mustang’s dash, another Mustang can be seen in the background, and it clearly has a ‘Boss 302’ decal on the front quarter panel, with the stripe extending across the lower section of the door. While it is clear the photobomber is the previous-generation Mustang, which offered a Boss 302 variant, its sighting suggests this could be an ‘easter egg’ hinting at what’s to come with the updated range. Above: the previous-generation Ford Mustang Boss 302 If Ford does release a Boss 302 Mustang, …Read entire story

Ford introduces new Pedestrian Targeting System on the 2018 Mustang GT

Ford introduces new Pedestrian Targeting System on the 2018 Mustang GT

Go Further! The new 2018 Ford Mustang has a refreshed face, better performance, and even dropped the V-6 engine. And while Ford has shown that they’re dedicated to making the Mustang the best muscle car on the market, they’ve also introduced some new state-of-the-art technology in the form of a Pedestrian Targeting System. Utilizing similar technology to the recently-developed Pre-Collision/Pedestrian-Detection systems, the new Ford Pedestrian Targeting system gives amateur Mustang drivers the ability to take out entire crowds while leaving car shows. “We’ve seen a rise in pedestrian incidents with Ford Mustangs the past two years during car show…Read entire story

New Technology, Attractive Looks, and Energetic Power to Keep Mustang Convertible Competitive Through 2020

New Technology, Attractive Looks, and Energetic Power to Keep Mustang Convertible Competitive Through 2020

The facelifted Ford Mustang had a somewhat awkward debut when a leaked promotional video forced Ford to pull the covers off the updated pony car a little earlier than expected. That may have pushed the timetable forward a bit, but probably not much. Just a few days after the coupe made its unexpected debut, Ford has taken the liberty of announcing the facelifted convertible version that comes with all of the bells and whistles found in the new coupe, but with unlimited headroom and an overwhelming desire to hit the open road feel the breeze in your hair. Like the coupe, the 3.7-liter V-6 is a thing of the past so, when it hits dealers this fall, you’ve got…Read entire story
