    Test Drive: 2016 Ford F-150 5.0 V8

    Picking up up the Bronze Fire 2016 Ford F-150 Lariat Crew Cab for the week, the first thing we did as a tradition is gun the accelerator onto the freeway to hear its sound and feel its power. In a pleasant surprise it was a V8 growl, not the engineered thrum of a twin-turbo V6. A welcome sound, this is the first time Ford has given us anything other than an EcoBoost F-150 in years. And while EcoBoost is not a bad thing, nearly one-third of buyers choose the V8 and we’re glad we got some seat time to tell you about it. To start with, the Lariat F-150 is a trim grade that falls square between the XL entry point and the new top-end Limited. As tested with options, this F-150 is $55,215 which is...

  • Test Drive: 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum

    Test Drive: 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum

    If you liked the 2016 and now 2017 Ford Explorer Sport with its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 but said to yourself, “I want more”, then the new Explorer Platinum is for you. What we found in test driving the new high-end Explorer is that you really get the best of the Sport’s higher performance with a Lincoln level of luxury. But you don’t have to saddle yourself with the aged and mature image of a Lincoln. Where you really see the differences between the Sport and Platinum are inside. The Platinum gets first an upgraded Nirvana leather across the seating surfaces and door panels with a diamond stitched quilting and perforation patterns. Second, the dash and door panels are also wrapped in stitched leathe...

  • Test Drive: 2016 Ford Mustang GT California Special

    Test Drive: 2016 Ford Mustang GT California Special

    The California Special GT/CS package makes its return on the 2016 Ford Mustang, and we spent this week with it on our favorite back roads having fun, even though we aren’t in California. Checking the option box for California Special costs you about $2,000 on top of the Mustang GT Premium Coupe or Convertible, the base trim level you get it with. And like back in 1968 has has a lot of little things that add up for a unique look. Starting with the stripes, you get them down on the lower rockers front to back and on the hood. They’re well done I think but don’t actually say GT/CS in them like they used to. The fake gas cap emblem at the back does say it though, and the rear deck spoiler i...

    Video: Right Hand Drive Mustang begins production
