In the recent weeks, the Ford Mustang has received the 2010 Shoppers’ Choice Award by the folks at Cars.Com and Best Resale Value for a high-performance vehicle, courtesy of Kelley Blue Book. Well, I’ve got a few more you can add to the list.

Have you seen the 2010 Ford Sport Trac at Future Ford of Sacramento? This would be great to take to the snow!

http://www.futurefordofsacramento.com 866-699-7684 The 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is largely unchanged for what will be its final model year. This crew-cab pickup truck is based on Ford’s Explorer SUV but has a 4-by-5-foot open cargo bed. Sport Trac seats 5. XLT and Limited trims are available, both with rear-wheel drive or full-time four-wheel drive that can be left engaged on dry pavement and includes a low-range gear for off-roading. A Limited model with all-wheel drive is also offered. A 210-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine and 5-speed automatic transmission are standard on all Explorer Sport Tracs.

Orders on the 2011 Ford Explorer are DOUBLE what they expected! People love them even more than I thought, which was A LOT!

Ford Motor Co. has about 15,000 orders — about double its projections — for the 2011 Ford Explorer that isn’t slated to hit showrooms until the new year. The preorders include about 3,000 retail orders, 7,500 dealer orders and more than 4,500 from companies, Ford officials say.

Take a look at the 2011 Ford Edge at Future Ford of Sacramento! It has a really great engine, and I love the POWER on it!

http://www.futurefordofsacramento.com 866-699-7684 The Edge has been offered with a single 3.5-liter V6 and automatic transmission across the entire range since launch. Now, Ford has made significant changes to the outgoing model’s 3.5-liter V6 for increased power and efficiency, added a 3.7-liter V6 for the Edge Sport and added an optional 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder which will make it’s North American debut in the Edge.

Ford was so sure we would love a smaller engine in the F150 they brought it to us to prove it! Now THAT is confidence!

The 3.5-liter, turbo-charged engine, assembled at a plant near Cleveland, is one of four available on the F-150. It is part of Ford’s EcoBoost program, aimed at improving fuel economy.

What a cute story! This guy loved his Ford Coupe SO much that he chased it down 45 years later!

When Willy Ouimette bought his low-slung 1939 Ford Coupe hot rod earlier this year, he completed a circle that was broken 45 years ago.  That was when he sold the same car so that he and his wife, Jan, could buy a house for their growing family.  But he never forgot it.

What a blast from the past! Check out this 1929 Ford Roadster! This guy is a true Ford lover!

Collecting and assembling parts from the aftermarket is not a bad way to build a hot rod, but Matt took a more old-school approach to his project-picking up parts at swap meets as much as possible.

Very entertaining video about the Ford F-150 EcoBoost Torture Test Episode 2 Hauling Timber. Check it!

Watch the video to see if the EcoBoost can survive as a skidder.

TWO new versions of the 2012 Ford Focus, AND they are getting souped up handling packages? This is TOO fantastic!

The 2012 Ford Focus might be one of the most eagerly awaited new small cars in a long while–particularly the 240-hp Focus ST–and Ford is upping the handling anticipation with the announcement of handling packages for the top two Focus trim lines.

Watch this quick video about the 2011 Ford F-150 V6 Ecoboost Torture Test. What a beefy engine!

The 2011 is bringing the house. Best in class everything baby. Yeah, even the important ones are best in class. Torque for getting those big trailers moving, Horse Power to keep you cruising and fuel economy so your wallet doesn’t scream at you. By the way – it’s all being done by a V6! I know I know, i crapped my pants, to but to answer a question that popped into my head instantly, “Is this thing able take the beating I can dish out, being a V6?”

Well this video shows the torture they put the engine through in testing to make sure that even an SK man would have a world of trouble getting this thing to pooch out!
