Is Ford’s Mustang a Must-have, even the 4 pot screamer.

    First, a little about phone mirroring: Ford is equipping 2017 Mustangs with Apple Carplay/Android Auto, hoorah. It turns the car audio system into an extension of a smart phone, and at last, makes hands-free use easy. Most people have trouble reading car manuals, but worry not, every smart phone user knows how to … Continue reading Is Ford’s Mustang a Must-have, even the 4 pot screamer.

I picture myself surrounded by green trees with thick ancient trunks, and a view out to the ocean … Continue reading Fit Ford Finds oFFroad Form: Everest Climbs a Mountain of Expectation in a Single Bound

FORD IS NOT HORSING AROUND WITH ITS LATEST MUSTANG

  Thanks Brent: FORD’S latest generation Mustang is both a stayer and a sprinter, a solid workhorse when it comes to performance but a bona fide show pony whenever it is time to glam it up.
