Ford gets retro gloriously right with GT ’66 Heritage Edition

Ford's GT is already pretty darn special, but if you demand even more super-exclusivity from your supercar, the blue oval has you covered. The automaker has taken the wraps off the 2017 Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition, a limited-edition version of its incredible coupe that's intended to honor the 1966 Le Mans winner.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro LT takes on a Trio of V6 Muscle Cars

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro LT takes on a Trio of V6 Muscle Cars

Garish horsepower numbers have become de rigueur in the world of muscle cars, where supercharged and big displacement V8 engines dominate drag strips and fuel fantasies of aerosolized rubber. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro LT bucks that trend by proving that humble six-cylinder power is more than enough for the vast majority of drivers - and certainly easier on your bank account when it comes time to fill up at the fuel pump.

Ford GT 1:3-scale Lego model unveiled for Le Mans

To celebrate its return to Le Mans, as well as the racing debut of the incredible Ford GT super car, Ford commissioned a 1:3-scale model of its new flagship made completely out of Lego.

But the Lego expert not only recreated the modern Ford GT, he also build a model of the Ford GT40 Mk2 p/1046, which won Le Mans back in 1966.

Here’s What 3 Hot Laps Will Tell You About Ford’s Fastest Mustang

Before I ruffle too many feathers by calling the 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R Ford’s fastest ‘stang yet, let me set some parameters. Was the 2013 Shelby GT500 with 662hp quicker to 60 mph and through a quarter-mile? Yes. Could that car out-maneuver the GT350R? Not a chance. Set those two vehicles against one another around any non-oval track in the world and the GT350 would spank its sibling.

2017 Ford Escape First Drive – Turbocharging Evolution

2017 Ford Escape First Drive – Turbocharging Evolution

When the Ford Escape first hit the scene in 2001 it was an instant success, helping to launch a compact SUV segment that was still in its infancy. Flash forward a decade and a half later and the pond is increasingly crowded with an ichthyologist's nightmare of competing crossovers and sport-utility vehicles, each trying to snatch family buyers out of each other's jaws in a feeding frenzy that would terrify even the staunchest piranha.

Ford’s GT order system turned into America’s Got Talent

Ford’s GT order system turned into America’s Got Talent

We knew demand for the new Ford GT was going to be high - after all, Ford is only initially making 500 of them - but we didn't realize quite how passionate would-be owners might get. For a start, you couldn't just walk into a Ford dealership and slap down your Amex Black for the deposit: instead, the automaker opted for an application process that it would then use to whittle down potential buyers.

Classic and modern Ford Mustangs welded together for the sake of art

Now here's something you don't see everyday: one half from two different cars welded together lengthwise, the first being a 1965 Ford Mustang, and the second from a 2015 model Mustang. Ford created the display as a way to highlight 50 years of innovation in the automotive industry, with a focus on how different a single car model can be over that amount of time.

The biggest Ford GT mystery is how to buy one

The biggest Ford GT mystery is how to buy one

Supply and demand. Ford is only committing to 500 of its new Ford GT, but that's only part of the reason - along with the mid-$400k sticker price - that so few people will get to enjoy the supercar. Unlike most cars, you can't just walk into a dealership and slap down your credit card to get a GT in your garage. Instead, it's a whole lot more complicated.

The 2016 IIHS full-size truck safety scores are in… and they’ll shock you

Full-size trucks may look tough, but not every load-hauler is created equal according to the IIHS safety test scores for 2016.
