The new Ford Raptor is as mean as the name sounds…take a look at the customized styling on it! Totally WICKED!

While a lot of automakers offer sharp-looking rides that put style before substance, Ford was facing the opposite challenge with the amazing 2011 F-150 SVT Raptor. So, after the company gave its street-legal off-road racer a new standard V8—packing 411 horses and 434 lb.-ft. of torque—Ford had to add a new personalization option that can give the Raptor extreme looks to match its extreme performance.

Take a look at this video of the 2011 Ford F-150 at Future Ford of Sacramento. When they said Built Ford Tough, they were NOT kidding!

http://www.futurefordofsacramento.com 866-699-7684 The 2011 Ford F-150 gets four new powertrains this year, including a base V-6 and a pair of newly developed V-8 engines. The fourth option: Ford’s 3.5-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6, an unlikely but completely common-sense alternative to V-8 thirst and thin V-6 torque. Once upon a time, a Ford with a turbo V-6 would have been laughed out of any serious truck owner’s stall; but thanks to modern electronic engine controls and some innovation on the engineering side at Ford, that’s all changed. Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 feels just as stout as a V-8 and is just as formidable for towing and hauling, while sipping regular unleaded at V-6 rates.

Ford designed their new Ranger from our love of wristwatches. Are you curious? Take a look!

Ford says it imitated design features from watches and power tools when designing the interior of the new Ranger.

Are you ready for a NEW minivan from Ford? Good, because they are giving us the 2012 Grand C-Max and it is AWESOME!

The upcoming 2012 Grand C-Max will soon get Ford back into the minivan segment. While the C-Max is more of a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) than traditional minivan, it could offer buyers a more car-like option for their cargo- and passenger-hauling needs.

We want to know. Will Ford be bringing their transit van to the United States?

Given Ford’s goal of communizing vehicles around the world, the Transit could come to America — although it remains unclear where it might be built.

Ford reports six straight quarters of higher profits! This means they build great cars and YOU love them! Thank you!

I tell you, the response we are getting now, for the Fiesta, the Focus, the Fusion, the Taurus, the Mustang, the utilities, these vehicles are the new Ford. They are world class and people really do want them and they really do value them.
