2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 X Profile
California-based tuning shop Galpin Auto Sports will bring 12 new show cars to the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas.

2011 Ford Focus Right Three Quarterjpg
It’s that time of the year again, and Consumer Reports has gathered data from 1.3 million subscribers to predict reliability on new models. Japanese brands still continue to dominate, while Ford has taken a nosedive with the worst results from the domestics.
2011 Ford Explorer By Tjin Edition
Ford spares no effort dressing up its vehicles each year for SEMA in Las Vegas -- so what exactly does it have in store this time around? DSO Eyewear, Superlift Suspensions, and Stitchcraft Interiors are just a few of the partners that worked with Ford in decking out the Ford Explorer and F-Series pickups this year.
2011 Ford Escape Front Three Quarter
The Ford Motor Company reported a nine-percent year-over-year sales gain for September 2011, with that figure buoyed mostly by Ford trucks and SUVs. Ford car sales suffered last month, and luxury brand Lincolnsaw sales of almost all its models slip compared to a year prior.
2011 Ford Explorer Legos Front Three Quarter
Finding a red Explorer at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant, where the crossover is now built, isn’t typically something you’d get excited about – unless that Explorer is made entirely out of Legos. Ford has built a full-scale model of its newest SUV out of 380,000 Lego bricks in order to promote its partnership with the upcoming Legoland Florida theme park.
