THROWBACK THURSDAY The 1977 Ford F-150 Explorer
The Ford Explorer is best known today for being one of the most popular models in the history of the sport utility vehicle segment, but back in the late 1970s, Explorer was a special premium upgrade package for the Ranger trimline of the Ford F-100 and F-150 pickup.
Earlier this week, we reported that the new Ford GT might end up making upwards of 700 horsepower in final production trim from its 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. If that sounds like a lot of power, you’d be right.
Unlike a lot of tiny houses, the Tiny Castle is actually capable of being moved on a regular basis. The underlying truck runs, meets all New Zealand federal requirements for driving on the road, and folds up in a similar way to that of a motorhome.
If you haul a trailer on a regular basis, maneuvering it and backing it up are probably second nature to you, but for the rest of us, we could use a little bit of help. That’s where the new Pro Trailer Backup Assist on the 2016 Ford F-150 comes in.
In this modern day world of emissions regulations and fuel economy standards, automotive manufacturers are working feverishly to build new vehicles that are greener than ever. For manufacturers like Ford, that means EcoBoosting everything they make.
