Why Some Trucks Say FX4 Instead of 4×4

You may have seen a Ford truck drive by with the characters, “FX4” emblazoned on the side. You may have wondered, “what’s the deal with that? Are they spelling out the first “four” and then just putting in a number for the last, so it comes out to something like ‘Four by 4’?” Well, that’s a good theory, but… not exactly.  (more…)

The Ford Mustang has been the top-selling muscle car of the last half-century, and it recently hit the 10 million mark when it comes to production. Image that: 10 million bold, elegant, and take-no-prisioners Mustangs have been made for the roads since the model was first produced for the public in 1964. The 10-millionth Ford Mustang was a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V-8 with a six-speed manual and a convertible top.

We’ve already written about the premium off-roading features that will be available on the 2019 Ford Ranger compact truck. When this bold and aggressive truck begins arriving in 2019 we are looking forward to its compact size and great technology. But did you know that the Ranger is also built just as tough as its F-150 big brother? This model is being put through its paces in the same grueling, torture-testing regime that the full-size Ford F-150 has passed with flying colors. Whether it’s being subjected to hours of intense shaking, towing up some of the most extreme inclines in the country, being driven over a field of potholes (by a computer, because a human driver wouldn’t be able to take it!) or just surviving desert joyriding at the hands of a professional, the 2019 Ford Ranger will be able to take you where you want to go and beyond. Learn more about the brutal tests this truck has experienced in the video below, or learn more about this model appearing in Brainerd MN. (more…)
