2017 F-150 Raptor, a full on race truck you can drive!

Truck fans across the country have eagerly awaited any bits of information about the next generation of Ford's off-road beast, the F-150 Raptor and this week the Blue Oval dished all the goods at the Detroit Auto Show! With a twin-turbo EcoBoosted 3.5L V6 putting out 450hp mated to a segment exclusive ten-speed automatic transmission and thirteen inches of suspension travel with huge twin-chamber Fox shocks to cushion the fall back to earth, the all new Raptor is sure to have waiting lines at many dealerships this fall!
From the Ford Press Release:
"DETROIT, Jan. 11, 2016 – Eagerly anticipated and still unmatched by any auto manufacturer,  Ford – America’s truck leader – introduces the all-new F-150 Raptor SuperCrew, adding agility, versatility and roominess to the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 Raptor ever.

Developed with the DNA of a Baja race truck, F-150 Raptor is unique among off-road and performance vehicles, with a purpose-built engine, chassis and suspension that enables it to travel fast over challenging desert landscapes or crawl over rocky terrain.

F-150 Raptor SuperCrew with four full-size doors provides rear passengers with more legroom and comfort on the trails and more space to stow gear while exploring the American and Canadian wilderness. SuperCrew’s 145-inch wheelbase is 12 inches longer than the standard Raptor SuperCab 133-inch wheelbase.

“F-150 Raptor means superior off-road capability, from rock crawling to sand running,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Performance global director. “With the addition of SuperCrew, F-150 Raptor customers can leave the pavement behind – without sacrificing comfort and space.”

Advanced materials – including high-strength steel and high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy – help save up to 500 pounds versus the prior Raptor for improved off-road prowess. Combined with all-new EcoBoost engine technology, the next-generation F-150 Raptor’s power-to-weight ratio has been improved, making the truck even more agile off-road.

Toughest F-150 Raptor ever
The all-new F-150 Raptor starts with a purpose-built fully boxed frame – the backbone of the truck – that is the strongest in the F-150 lineup, featuring more high-strength steel than the outgoing Raptor.

F-150 Raptor’s chiseled looks are reminiscent of Trophy Trucks – the fastest and most powerful class of off-road pickups. F-150 Raptor is 6 inches wider than standard F-150 for enhanced stability off-road.

The all-new F-150 Raptor also boasts its first-ever dual exhaust and new 17-inch wheels with next-generation BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires designed for off-road performance.

Highlights:

  • Roomier: All-new Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew adds room for passengers and gear, expanding choice and versatility in the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 Raptor ever
  • More agile: Enhanced suspension, use of advanced materials, all-new EcoBoost engine technology plus smart engineering saves up to 500 pounds, for improved power-to-weight ratio for even better off-road agility than previous F-150 Raptor
  • Unmatched performance: All-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost, all-new 10-speed transmission and torque-on-demand transfer case make F-150 Raptor even more powerful, efficient and easy to drive off-road
  • Better traction: Segment-exclusive redesigned beadlock-capable wheels help increase grip in low-traction conditions; unique Avalanche Grey color signifies Raptor’s Ford Performance tie

With the N. American truck market all abuzz with the news that Ford will reintroduce the Ford Ranger here it is not surprising that racing fans are watching the world racing scene to catch the truck in action as the Coyote V8 powered Ford Ranger is set to take on the most grueling event in all of motor sports; the South American Dakar Rally #Dakar2016! From News24.com:
"Chile - The Ford Ranger V8s built in South Africa by Neil Woolridge Motorsport has been taken over by DMAS South Racing and former WRC driver Xavier ‘Xevi’ Pons and Chilean Daniel Valdes Mas will campaign them in the 2016 Dakar race. South Racing ran a Ford Ranger in the 2015 Dakar Rally for the Argentine rally driver Federico Villagra, but the team and its strategic partner, Chilean-based DMAS Competicion, have developed the car during the course of the year with suspension revisions, new engine mapping and chassis improvements.
'Dakar Rally a great challenge'
Villagra who has driven for the Citroen, Mitsubishi and Subaru teams at the top level of rallying, will have Argentinian Riccardo Torlaschi as co-driver. Mas will be partnered by fellow countryman Juan Pablo Latrach. Follow the team during the race HERE!

2016 Ford Explorer Platinum sets the bar for luxury SUV’s

The Blue Oval is on one amazing streak of 'doing things right' lately and the redesign of their SUV flagship the Explorer shows they have no intention of slowing down. At the top of the line for their anchor truck is the new Platinum edition and it more than lives of to the implications of the title!
The folks at Ford gathered some of the nations top auto journalists together, flew them up to some of the most beautiful scenery on earth and let them loose in the new Explorers. Our friend Chad Kirchner, the Average Car Guy, was one of the invited and his review is a must read for Ford fans! From his post:
"When an automaker flies a bunch of journalists out to a beautiful or exotic location, they do it because they want the journalist to enjoy themselves. A happy journalist ultimately leads to, hopefully, a happy review. The thing is, with the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum, they could’ve had launch event at the fiery gates of Hell and I still would’ve enjoyed the vehicle. The 2016 Explorer, in Platinum trim, is one of the best modern Fords you can buy...."

Breaking: Ford planning return of the Ford Ranger!

Perhaps under pressure from the many Ranger fans who have been posting and tweeting for its return or perhaps from the success of the Colorado for the Bow Ties boys, Ford is reportedly considering the resurrection of the once very popular and now highly desired Ford Ranger! 
From the Detroit News:
"The Dearborn automaker has entered contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers with plans to bring the Ranger to the plant in Wayne in 2018, said the sources, who couldn’t speak publicly because of the sensitive nature of the talks. They said the final decision is up for discussion in the talks now underway, and must be agreed to with the union and then Ford’s board of directors.
The Ranger — which would replace the Focus and C-Max after production of those cars likely heads to Mexico — represents the kind of potentially high-profit, high-volume vehicle the union desires and likely would demand before members would ratify any contract proposal. The two sides must agree that the Ranger would be a good fit for the plant and its nearly 4,500 workers. For Ford, the pickup would mark the return to a small — but growing — midsize truck segment that would help it meet stricter fleet-wide fuel economy standards demanded by the federal government.

“There’s a real hunger for midsize trucks right now,” said Karl Brauer, senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “Once upon a time, there were a lot of midsize trucks in this market. The ones that are available are cashing in on the demand.”
