2021 Ford F-150 4X4 PowerBoost Hybrid l Review

2021 Ford F-150 4X4 PowerBoost Hybrid

Ford continues to push the boundaries and expectations of what people expect a certain vehicle to be. The all-electric crossover Mustang Mach-E got some attention, but wasn’t really even the beginning of the perception push. The EcoBoost version of the vaunted F-150 dates back a full decade and lots of truck people yelled at their […]

2021 Ford F-250 SRW Crew Cab Diesel Tremor

2021 Ford F-250 SRW Crew Cab Diesel

I continue to be fascinated by pickup trucks. Well, not quite enough to buy one, but it is a drastically different segment of the automotive world. While the average crossover has some things in common with a sedan from the same automaker, the truck stands alone (except in cases where it shares component with an […]

2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Review

ford bronco badlands off-road

The 2021 Ford Bronco is one of the most anticipated vehicles of the year, and the good news is that it’s pretty much everything you hoped it would be! It’s excellent off-road, good on-road, has great engine choices, and it looks fantastic as well. We snagged a 2021 Bronco Badlands two-door for a week and […]

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks l Review

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks

The problem with crossovers is that they are just too similar. You can recognize the silhouette of today’s most popular vehicle segment from a mile away, but you can’t always tell which one it is. I’m sure I could lean over and look out the window and see several parked nearby, well in addition to […]

2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost King Ranch: All hat, no cattle

F-150 King Ranch PowerBoost front view

The hype is strong for this PowerBoost King Ranch F-150. This is the first real full-on attempt to create a hybrid pickup truck. In an era where fuel economy and emissions regulations are ever-tightening, the popularity of full-size trucks and SUVs continues to grow. In addition, the physical size of these vehicles continues to expand as well. Larger […]

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review: The Best All-Around Car I’ve Ever Driven

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

You read that title right. A six-time Ford Mustang owner and auto-journalist-type just said that a crossover EV is the best all-arounder he’s ever driven. No, I didn’t say it’s the best all-around electric vehicle I’ve ever driven, although that’s true as well. I also didn’t say it’s the best crossover I’ve driven, though true […]

2020 Ford F-250 Tremor: I also don’t get it, but I love it

2021 Ford F-250 Tremor

I’ll say this up front, I’ve never owned a pickup truck. It’s just about the only major vehicle type I haven’t owned. It’s not that I have anything against them, I actually like them, I’ve just never had the need for one. This is the eternal pickup truck quandary, the actual “need” for a truck […]

Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks: Not a Badlands, but still good!

Ford Bronco Sport off road

We already know the Ford Bronco Sport Badlands is a great little machine. But I didn’t expect to feel the same way about non-Badlands models. I’m wrong… the less-powerful, less-capable Bronco Sport models? Those are good too! I learned this after spending a week with the Bronco Sport Outer Banks and its plucky little 1.5-liter […]

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 – First Drive: On Road and the Track

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 on the road

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is here to fill a hole in the lineup. And it’s one hell of a plug. Gone is the GT350. You can’t afford a GT500. And the Bullitt is fine… but you want more and you’re sick of Highland Green (not really, but play along). The Mach 1 is […]

Ford Mustang Mach-E: Forget the name, enjoy the machine

Ford Mustang Mach-E review

Ford didn’t need to call it the Mustang Mach-E… but they did, so let’s deal with that. What we have is a good electric vehicle with Mustang-esque design elements. And if you automatically discount it simply because it has pony badges, you’re doing yourself a disservice. The Mach-E is really good. And we can’t wait […]
