2017 Ford Mustang preview

Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] sixth-generation Mustang made waves when introduced for the 2015 model year. Finally, we were graced with a Mustang with independent rear suspension, which together with the steering and other chassis tweaks helped to deliver sports car-like handling.

Since then Ford has added the awesome Shelby GT350 and GT350R as well as a Performance Package for buyers of the standard models.

There aren’t many changes to report on for the 2017 model year, the most substantial being the expanded color palette which now includes Lightning Blue, Grabber Blue and White Platinum Metallic Tri-coat. (Part of the reason for the lack of updates is due to a facelifted model being introduced for 2018.)

The 2017 Mustang also features the latest Sync infotainment system which benefits from enhanced voice recognition as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. We’d also recommend upgrading to the car’s available 8.0-inch dash-mounted touchscreen which has swipe and pinch-to-zoom capabilities, just like a smartphone.

Ford Edge Sport has power on demand, upscale features

The Ford Edge has been a favorite of mine since its inception in 2007. It truly separated itself from the ultra-popular SUV category by embracing premium offerings as a selling point — but with a blue oval price point.

I recently tested the 2017 Ford Edge Sport, and it was an experience flush with outstanding interior refinement, intuitive technology and an exterior style that manages to distance itself from the crowded class of competitors (including Lexus, Cadillac, Infiniti and its cousin Lincoln MKX).

The new Ford Edge was powerful and fun to drive while delivering a level of luxury appointments that easily makes it a value when compared to everything else worth comparing.

The Edge is offered in base SE, SEL, Titanium and Sport trims. My Edge Sport tester offered plenty of athleticism. From its aggressive two-bar grille in front and the swooping headlamps pinching up its snub nose up into a steeply raked windshield, the Edge is aggressive and refined all in one. I really love the rear spoiler extending off the roof; the short-hang impact delivers sporty style.

FORD GT PROTOTYPE NEEDS A NEW HOME

For those who were not hand-selected by Ford for the opportunity to pay nearly half-a-million dollars for the new GT supercar, here’s a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of Ford history. The first, last-generation Ford GT prototype, Confirmation Prototype 1 (CP-1), needs a new owner.

CP-1 was the first fully functional prototype Ford GT the company built after it made the three display models in 2003, which are now housed in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. CP-1 bearing chassis number 004 was fully driveable as it was Ford’s test mule for quite some time. It features a full interior and complete drivetrain that helped Ford test and tweak the car before production.

One part that definitely didn’t make its way to the 200-mph Ford GT is the 5-mph speed limiter Ford installed before it sold this car in 2008 to a Ford GT collector. Unfortunately for both the buyer and the car, the speed limiter chip relegates CP-1 to display purposes only, although it starts, runs, has a VIN, and can propel itself into and out of a garage.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Test Drive

I’m in a Ford F-150 doing 70 mph with one hand on the wheel while having a quiet conversation with the passenger beside me. It’s not an uncommon situation in today’s refined trucks.

Except this time I’m doing it in the middle of the California desert, bounding over knee-high dunes and winding between dry scrub trees, with a smile on my face as wide as the horizon ahead of me.

This is life in the 2017 F-150 Raptor, a second take on one of the most surprising automotive success stories of the past decade.
