2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty unveiled…

The circle is now complete. Following a couple model years after the redesigned F-150, Ford has taken the wraps off the new 2011 Super Duty model at the Texas State Fair today. The new Super Duty debuts with a new look, new diesel engine called “Scorpion” 6.7-litre Power Stroke V8, and an all-new 6.2-litre gas-powered V8 (NOTE: This should be the same 6.2-liter V8 destined for duty in the F-150 SVT Raptor). Ford has still not released power figures for either engine, but the Power Stroke diesel does have the ability to run on B20 biodiesel.

We recently gave you a sneak peek at Ford of Europe’s new 2011 C-Max people mover. That Iosis Max-inspired “compact multi-activity vehicle” will officially debut in a few days at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Based on the company’s new global C-platform architecture that will underpin the next Ford Focus, the 2011 Ford C-Max will be powered by a new 1.6-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder. Beyond that we don’t know much else about this tall hatch. What we do know is that it will be joined at the Messe by a bigger brother.

Review: 2010 Shebly Super Snake – a hypercar in Mustang clothes…

September 10, 2009

This is totally epic! That’s seriously all I can say!

In just under ten months, this blogger has gone from not having been inside a Mustang in 13 years (and a used one at that), to driving, in this order, a 2010 Mustang GT, a Mustang GT with the Track Pack, a Shelby GT500 Mustang and a Roush 427R. That sequence also defines our order of favorites; every successive steed has made us say “We have a new favorite!” In Monterey, we were handed the keys to the brand new 750-horsepower Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and when we gave them back we not only said: “We have a new favorite,” we declared “All hail, we have a new king!”
