Ford has just announced that by the 2017 model year, all EcoBoost-powered F-150 pickup trucks will automatically shut off when possible to save fuel.
For $999, Ford will now sell you a factory-spec rear seat for your Shelby GT350R Mustang. Looks great! But there’s another vehicle it’d fit on even better.

Six men are driving 1,500 horses across a Mexican wasteland. On a tight schedule to make town, they’ll cut though plenty of danger, dust and drinking before the week’s out. It’s not a John Wayne movie, it’s a Baja prerun—the drive ahead of a huge off-road race. If you think the west isn’t wild anymore, this will…
Watching this B-roll of the 2017 Ford Raptor doodling around Michigan’s Silver Lake sand dunes we realized; this must be what every car commercial looks like before it’s tuned up with sweet jumps and sound effects.
We know the 2017 Ford Raptor will have a 3.5 twin turbo V6, ten-speed automatic transmission, and of course the new F-150’s aluminum body. No real claims have been made on the truck’s power or weight, but Forza 6 has numbers. Think they mean anything?
Ford maintains a 66 mile course of sand and slag to test their trucks off-road, and after whipping the 2017 Ford Raptor through it they say the new aluminum-bodied 3.5 liter turbo truck made a 25 percent improvement on lap times over the old 6.2 V8.
Renown tuner Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Southern Comfort Automotive birthed their idea for a “GM version of the Ford Raptor” as the Chevy Reaper some months ago. Cool concept, egregiously ugly. Now they’ve rectified that with a stately GMC version.
The 2011 to 2014 Ford Raptor is highly off-road capable with 411 horsepower. The Shelby Baja 700 adds a 2.9 liter supercharger, big ol' exhaust, jump-worthy suspension, and takes the output up to (you guessed it) 700 horsepower.

Versatility is pretty important in today's modern automobile. For example - you want to head down to the mall to replace a pair of shoes that just started talking, but sitting in traffic sucks. Now you can buy an insanely affordable off-road Ford Raptor and drive it through the woods. If time is money, this is the…
If you're still a little bummed that the Ford Raptor's V8 is getting replaced by a twin-turbo V6 that's nearly half its size when a replacement arrives for 2017, maybe this number will make you feel better: 450 horsepower. Yeah, that'll do.
Here's something for all you patriots who thought the EcoBoost name was for sissies, pinkos, libtards, hippies and other undesirable elements who don't love freedom: Ford is moving to trademark the name "EcoBeast" for future cars, trucks and/or engines. ECOBEAST!
Ford and the Vegas Off-Road Experience (VORE) teamed up to turn a sun-scorched parking lot into a Raptor-jumping tire-slaying automotive orgy of awesomeness for SEMA spectators.
The Ford EcoSport is basically the Ford Fiesta of the company's crossover lineup in Brazil, Thailand, and India where it's built. So to give it a little more puxa and I guess "because hilarious," they slapped a Ford Raptor face on one and dubbed it EcoSport Storm.
Five one-off custom Ford Transit Vans have landed out for SEMA, the far-and-away coolest of which is this "Ultimate Outdoor Adventure" variant. With meaty off-road tires, mean body cladding, and the iconic Ford Raptor face this bad boy is ready to take fifteen of your closest friends skippin' off sand dunes.
