J.D. Power Names Ford Ranger as Best Mid-Size Pickup for 2019

The Ford Ranger has been a hit with fans and the auto press, but it’s just won over another key demographic — the folks at J.D. Power. Because the venerable rating company just named it the best mid-size pickup in its 2019 Initial Quality Study, where it beat out competitors like the Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado. Given the reams of positive press it’s received, the Ranger wasn’t exactly hurting for praise before J.D. Power weighed in, but the news is sure to provide peace of mind to buyers considering trucks…

Here’s the Teaser Shot of the Race-Inspired Version of the Ford GT

The Ford GT is an amazing car. But there’s always room for improvement, and the Blue Oval looks set to release a LeMans-inspired version.

Plug and Play: 2019 Ford Fusion Energi Titanium Test Drive

For 2019 the Ford Fusion Energi Titanium has a few new tricks up its sleeve to help it stay competitive in the ever-growing plug-in hybrid segment. The second generation Fusion was released in 2013, and with beautiful and modern styling, it was an instant hit with consumers. Thanks to some revised battery technology the Energi sees a 4-mile bump in EV range to 25 miles (up from 21), which means fewer fuel stops if a fast charger is accessible. As this is a hybrid, the Fusion Energi also employs petrol…

Ready to Work: 2019 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4X2 Test Drive

Every vehicle, no matter how luxurious or expensive it may be, is a sort of tool. Some are more versatile than others. A high-performance sports car is like a pneumatic nail gun. It uses a lot of power to fire you down the road as quickly as possible. A rugged off-road SUV is similar to a sledgehammer because it may lack sophistication, but it gets results. A truck is more like a multi-tool. There’s a good chance you own one. At the very least, you’ve seen one before. When you…
