Ford SUV Factory Gets $25 Million Investment

Ford is looking to become even more competitive in the SUV market – and it’s doing so with a $25 million investment at the Ford SUV factory in Louisville, Kentucky in hopes that it will assemble more of the big SUVs that will challenge its biggest rival, General Motors. By using this investment, the American carmaker will be able to increase production of both the new Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator by 25% compared to what the company was planning last fall, when the two redesigned SUVs first hit dealerships like Gurley Motor Co. “The Expedition and Navigator products are very important to both the Ford and Lincoln lineups,”

New Ford F-150 Features Jurassic Engine Roar Thanks to Hennessey

The new Ford F-150 never had an easy road to production. Just the idea of a truck built on an aluminum frame seemed to be contrary to everything the full-size truck segment stood for. But Ford quickly debunked those ideas, proving that this truck could actually be lighter, stronger, and just better than previous versions of the truck. Now, just as its being released here in the States, it’s proving it can be even more than that too. Hennessey Performance has taken the F-150, which gets 385 horsepower on its own, and pushed it over the 600 horsepower mark. They’ve done this thanks to the VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged package, which

Ford Working Hard On Producing Ford F-150 Hybrid

When you are shopping for a pickup truck, the majority of the time you have to sacrifice great gas mileage for superior capabilities. But what if you didn’t have to do that in the future?

The American carmaker recently announced that it is “working very hard” on developing a Ford F-150 Hybrid. The details on this hybrid pickup are close to nothing, with the majority of our information consisting of it being a gas-electric hybrid powertrain. Last year, though, Raj Nair, Ford’s global

2015 F-150 Earns Truck of Texas Title

Ok, we aren’t surprised either. USA Today reports that the 2015 Ford F-150 was recently awarded the “Truck of Texas” title by the Texas Auto Writers Association. Let’s be honest, Texans know their trucks, and Texas sells more pickups than any other state in this country. As such, Ford is honored to be the truck of choice for the Lone Star State. The 2015 F-150 is changing everything we know about pickups – offering unprecedented fuel efficiency thanks to its new light-weight aluminum construction. The new model also comes with power and capability, modern technology, and luxurious interior appointments. “This is a significant honor,” says Doug Scott, marketing manager of

Just how tough will the 2015 Ford F-150 be?

By now we all know that the brand new 2015 Ford F-150 will be making a big change in production. The truck we know and love will now be made out of aluminum, but it definitely doesn’t take away from it’s toughness! Since a lot of us like to drive our trucks hard, we want to talk a little about how the new F-150 will be made. While spot welding is used on pretty much all steel bodies, these bad boys will be held together by rivets. Spot welding is a much easier process, and while rivets will take more time and precision, each one must be perfectly inserted, so
