Ford’s 2016 Mustang GT hustle car is irresistible with 435 ponies, six-speed stick

The take-no-prisoners 2016 Mustang GT that landed on our driveway made no excuses to practicality. The extra-cost, extra intense triple yellow tri-coat paint screamed its brash intentions. Hit the start button to fire up the bass-happy 5.0-liter V8 and you’re ready to rumble.

When it exploded on the scene in 2015, the sixth-generation Mustang hit nearly all the hot buttons of the Mustang faithful. This is one Ford that’s graced with a body that looks fast just standing still. The Mustang also has one of the best stances to ever come off an assembly line with wheels and tires filling the wells and fender gaps kept to a minimum. Ford’s design team did an admirable job keeping the gingerbread off, which not only helps style and perceived quality, but also contributes to improved aerodynamics. Although it may come in flavors mild to wild, the GT is the starting point for any buyer who wants the power and athleticism to back up the Mustang’s sleek profile. Despite EcoBoost, Ford’s tidal wave of turbocharging, it’s the 5.0-liter V8 that unleashes the sound and fury of the Mustang GT’s 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Properly equipped and given the space, the car is good for 155 mph.

The Mustang is not only a five-point-oh muscle car, it’s an oh-my-gawd economic engine. Born more than half a century ago, Ford’s personal coupe spawned its own cottage industries from hardware and service for restoration, customization and performance. The Mustang has also starred on the big screen from “Bullitt” to “War of the Worlds” and has been immortalized in song by artists like Wilson Pickett and Vanilla Ice.

Ford reveals more powerful EcoBoost engine for F-150 pickup

2017 F-150 pickups will have more power and better fuel efficiency when they go on sale this fall because of the vehicle’s redesigned 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine and all-new 10-speed transmissions.

Ford said the redesigned V6 will produce 450 pound feet of torque, or 30 more than the outgoing engine, while maintaining 365 horsepower. According to Ford, that makes the engine the most powerful V6 gasoline or diesel engine on the market.

That will give Ford a way to continue to sell more of its popular F-Series pickups, which have been the top-selling car or truck in America for 39 years in a row.

The EcoBoost engine, first introduced on the F-150 in 2011, has become a popular engine option for Ford. By July, Ford expects sales of the engine on F-150 pickups will surpass one million. EcoBoost engines now account for 60% of Ford’s overall F-150 sales while Ford’s 5.0-liter V8 engine and a non-EcoBoost V6 engine account for the remainder of the sales.

2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid

A more refined and quietly efficient four-door.

For 2017, Ford has graced its Fusion hybrid with an additional trim level—the zooty Platinum spec—along with a host of cosmetic changes shared with the rest of the mid-size Ford Fusion sedan range, but you’ll have to look closely to detect differences. The Aston Martin–like grille is slightly wider than before to give the front end a lower look. The headlights are new, too, with the base S and SE models using projector-beam-style halogen lights, while the Titanium and Platinum trims get standard LED lights. All trim levels employ restyled LED taillights dressed up by a chrome spear.

Inside, a new gear-selector dial operates the automatic transmission. This metal wheel takes up less real estate between the seats than did the former shift lever. It has a satisfying and expensive feel to it as it efficiently calls up park, reverse, neutral, and drive. With the traditional shifter gone, there’s now more space for two cupholders, a longer center armrest, and a deep slot for phone storage. Platinum, Titanium, and SE models with the Technology package get an 8.0-inch touchscreen running the Sync 3 system, Ford’s newest generation of audio, phone, and navigation controls.

El Cajon, Calif. tuner Autoworks International made the pumped-up muscle car with twin Rotex superchargers atop the 392 cubic-inch V8, a Tremec 5-speed transmission, hidden roll cage and monster hood scoop to clear the twin intercoolers.
