How to Find Ford Mustang Parts Online

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

If you have a Ford Mustang, it deserves the best care that you can give it, and that includes good maintenance. Although owning a Mustang is a privilege, it can also pose some problems because of the number of changes that have taken place practically every year since that famous day in April, 1964, when […]

Buying A Used Ford Mustang

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

The Ford Mustang is one of the most popular sports cars in America, with that comes a high demand for used Mustangs. Buying a new Mustang is as easy as choosing your options and driving off, however purchasing a used Mustang requires a great deal of care. Choosing the wrong car could cost you thousands […]

In today’s auto market, customers are getting more and more focused on getting a reliable vehicle. It would seem that the days of getting a new car every three to five years are gone (at least for the majority of the population), so quality studies and surveys about different vehicles are proving to be crucial in buyers’ decisions. And that’s good news for Ford because a recent study by J.D. Power and Associates marks the current lineup of Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles as one of the best ever.

For many years, General Motors has been the number one auto manufacturer in the United States with a market share of about 20%. And for the past decade, Ford’s market share was shrinking, even though their F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for the past few years running. This was not a reflection on the quality of vehicles from either company, but rather a result of scale. General Motors had a massive brand lineup and a larger dealer and advertising network than Ford, allowing them to move more cars off the lots. With the GM bankruptcy and Ford’s recent strong sales, though, that all looks to be changing.

Ford’s Social Media Experiment

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other such websites are seen as the future of online social interaction. After all, why engage in a prolonged, deep conversation when you can just hop on Twitter, type out a 140 character message. (That previous sentence was 123 characters). Okay, I’m showing my bias now, but anyway, the online social media phenomenon has not gone unnoticed by Ford, and they’ve launched the Fiesta Movement, a way to promote their new Fiesta model through these media. And it’s working pretty well; over the course of the past three months, they’ve racked up 1.8 million views on YouTube, over 270,000 photo views on Flickr (one of those was me, finding the pictures below), and 1.8 million Twitter impressions.

Ford Increases Market Share Yet Again

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Sales figures for the month of June have been released and, unsurprisingly, the Ford Motor Company has yet again increased their market share. Between the Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury brands, the company sold a total of 148,153 vehicles in June, representing a drop of 11% versus the sales numbers from June 2008. This decrease is currently the lowest reported drop of all major automakers. You know the economy is in rough shape when having the smallest sales drop makes you the best, but that’s just the way it is.  read more »

2010 Roush Mustang Made In America

Monday, July 6th, 2009

In celebration of the Fourth of July, Roush Performance released some figures about just where the parts for their 2010 Roush Mustang come from. The Mustang isn’t entirely American made, but it does clock in at 86%, which, if you consider the growing trend towards globalization in the past few decades, is an incredibly high number. And, that 86% includes all of the stock Ford Mustang parts and the modifications made by Roush.

V10-Powered Mustang Project

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

A Mustang with a Viper’s 8.4-liter V10
Scott Vanderschoor is like a lot of people. He likes to spend his free time working on his Mustang and adding modifications. Unlike a lot of people, however, he takes this to a whole new level: dropping a twin-turbo 8.4-liter V10 engine from a Dodge Viper into a Mustang. As you can imagine, that is a tough task, as the Ford Mustang really wasn’t designed to have a 8.4-liter behemoth under the hood. One of the biggest projects for Vanderschoor was to move the entire firewall back a half foot in order to even get the engine into the engine compartment. Click through to see a video of this V10 monster, called the Sniper, roaring to life for the first time (well, idling to life, he needs to tune it first).  read more »

It’s the first of July and that means that sales numbers are starting to be tallied for the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and 2010 Ford Mustang for the month of June, and it doesn’t look good for the Blue Oval. Initial reports indicate that Chevy sold 9,320 Camaros this past month, while Ford only managed to move 7,632 Mustangs off the lot. The other big Detroit muscle car, the 2009 Dodge Challenger, finished in a distant third with only 1,369 units sold.

Ford Simplifies Cash For Clunkers

Friday, June 26th, 2009

The federal government recently passed their “Cash For Clunkers” legislation that gives car buyers up to $4,500 in rebates towards the purchase of a new car if they opt for a fuel-efficient vehicle that is better than their current car. Like pretty much every law to come out of Washington, D.C., the bill is pretty convoluted and confusing. The Ford Motor Company, in an effort to make things a bit simpler, has launched a new section of their website designed to help you figure out if your current car qualifies.
