2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Review: Uncompromising track star

2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Review: Uncompromising track star

Ford should make you sign a contract committing to go to the track every weekend before they'll sell you a 2017 Shelby GT350. This 5.2-liter V8 Mustang may be related to the affordable coupe that bears the same nameplate but, by the time Ford Performance is through, it's a very distant cousin. To be worthy of the rearing snake badge, the GT350 has to be more than special: it has to be capable of putting fear into Porsches.

2017 Ford Flex Limited Review: Twin-turbo road trip king continues to deliver

2017 Ford Flex Limited Review: Twin-turbo road trip king continues to deliver

Most full-size SUVs tend to fall into one of two design categories: forgettable family blobs, or frighteningly massive hunks of truck-based steel. The 2017 Ford Flex, however, proves that you can package exceptional practicality in something that's been styled to be distinctly different from the vast majority of its people-moving brethren. Even more impressive? The Flex manages to stand tall alongside the competition while riding on one of the oldest platforms in the sport-utility segment.

Don’t worry, the Ford GT is still stunning

Don’t worry, the Ford GT is still stunning

Ford has done nothing new with the 2017 Ford GT, but it looks so tremendous in cherry red here at the New York Auto Show that it would be a crime not to show you. It's been more than two years since the automaker revealed its reborn-classic, driving the all-new GT onto the stage at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015. It's only this year that the first of the production cars will actually arrive in buyers' garages, though.

Ford’s new cop car is a hybrid (no, really)

Ford’s new cop car is a hybrid (no, really)

Hybrids may have earned a reputation for being both environmentally-obsessed and performance-impaired, but Ford's new hybrid police car didn't get that memo. The new For Police Responder Hybrid Sedan is the latest in the automaker's special line-up for law enforcement, as well as the first pursuit-rated hybrid police car ever. It's the first of a pair of hybrid vehicles for police officers that Ford has promised over the next few years.

Ford designed a baby crib that simulates car rides

Ford designed a baby crib that simulates car rides

What you're seeing here is a baby crib designed and built by Ford. Yes, the car company, and no, this isn't a late April Fools' joke. It's dubbed the Max Motor Dreams, and it's essentially a "smart bed" for babies that can simulate the feel of riding in a car — a well-known trick for parents with little ones that have difficulty falling asleep. It uses sound, lighting, and motion to mimic the feel of a gentle car ride from the backseat.

Ford F-250 trucks recalled over roll away concerns

Ford F-250 trucks recalled over roll away concerns

We're only a few months into 2017 and there's already a significant number of cars on the road affected by an open recall. Unfortunately there's no signs of slowdown for this issue, as Ford this weekend announced its third recall in less than a week — this time for the latest F-250 pickup model. Even more alarming is the issue the trucks are being recalled for: there's the possibility they could roll away while parked.

Ford recalls nearly half a million cars over door latches and fire risk

Ford has announced a pair of recalls that collectively span 440,000 vehicles in North America. Of the two recalls, one affects 211,000 cars and concerns possibly faulty side door latches; the other recall covers about 230,000 vehicles that are at risk of fires under the hood.

This crazy 2018 Mustang detail proves just how obsessed Ford is

This crazy 2018 Mustang detail proves just how obsessed Ford is

The Mustang may be more than fifty years old, but Ford is just as obsessed with its iconic muscle-car as ever, as one crazy detail of the 2018 Mustang demonstrates. Getting its biggest design refresh since the sixth generation car back in 2015, the new Mustang GT is leaner and meaner, borrowing styling cues previously possessed only by more extreme versions like the Shelby GT350. However, there's a more unusual inspiration for one new dashboard feature.

Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford ‘Autolivery’ concept: an autonomous van with a delivery drone

Ford envisions a future in which autonomous electric vans will work alongside drones to deliver items to people located in urban areas. Calling it the ‘autolivery’ concept, the idea here is that self-driving cars could be used to deliver packages, but it would require a little something extra — something to get the package to where it needs to go, places a van isn’t likely able to access, and without the use of a human.

Ford GT Competition Series puts supercar on a diet

Ford GT Competition Series puts supercar on a diet

Take the super-exclusive Ford GT, trim what little fat you might be able to find, and you end up with this: the Ford GT Competition Series. Few would describe Ford's supercar as anything close to being obese, but the automaker is giving the coupe every edge it can when it comes to track performance. That includes ditching the creature comforts, but it's only the start.

2018 Ford Fiesta ST breaks cover, and we want one

2018 Ford Fiesta ST breaks cover, and we want one

Ford has taken the wraps off its new 2018 Fiesta ST, a punchy little hot-hatch that bucks the trend in terms of engines. Revealed initially in European-market form, the new Fiesta ST eschews the typical four-cylinder engine you'd expect to find under its hood, and instead goes the three-cylinder EcoBoost route. In fact, it's a mere 1.5-liter example, though Ford is still making sizable promises about the car's performance.

2017 Ford Fusion Sport Review: Blue Oval Q ship cancels mid-size family sedan boredom

2017 Ford Fusion Sport Review: Blue Oval Q ship cancels mid-size family sedan boredom

The Q-ship is a time-honored tradition in the world of family sedans, and the new Ford Fusion Sport is the latest effort from a mainstream automaker to present buyers with an enormous motor stuffed under the hood of an unassuming commuter. Only this being 2017, that motor isn't so much 'big' in size as it is in output, thanks to the Blue Oval's overwhelming desire to turbocharge absolutely every single drivetrain its engineers can get their hands on.
