2021 Ford Bronco SUV has been spotted undisguised for the first time after several speculations on the return of the SUV surfaced online. Retaining its boxy silhouette, the 2021 iteration of the Ford Bronco is expected to be revealed sometime by the end of this year.

The SUV will come with a high ground clearance while the brand is expected to offer it in multiple platforms for its distinguished consumer base. The brand has equipped the five-door SUV with a multi-part hardtop that can be removed and features a roof rack. In addition to this, the SUV further features an accentuated pillar design while the hood design has been kept flat.

Powering the 2021 Ford Bronco 5-Door SUV is a 2.7-litre turbocharged V6 engine that is further expected to be mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The LED turn indicators on the SUV seem to be borrowed from the last-gen variant of the SUV and are positioned on the hood. Also, one can easily recognise the side mirrors that have been offered a huge outlook. The brand has imparted the 5-door SUV with an overall rugged outlook when compared to the other versions and will feature better off-roading capabilities comparatively.

Coming to the other features, the brand has equipped the SUV with black fenders while the round headlight units have been mated to a black grille. The bonnet has been offered a flat stance while the addition of Bronco branding justifies the authenticity further.

The 3-Door variant of the SUV is expected to be offered with a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine as well as a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol unit while the power figures have not been revealed as of yet. More images and reports on the 2021 Ford Bronco are expected to be revealed by the brand sometime soon.

Toyota Fortuner vs Ford Endeavour (Sales Report): Endeavour and Fortuner are the two most practical options that buyers can have around INR 32 lakh (with 10% up/down value for different variants). Not just that, both the cars have received considerable upgrades and entered the next-generation design language.

Ford Endeavour registered a total of 6,787 units in 2019 while Toyota Fortuner was good for 15,488 units during the same period. The latter posted more than two times the sales figure posted by the Endeavour, leaving even less popular sedans and hatchbacks behind in terms of the yearly sales number. For Ford, the number is respectable as they have some production-constraint for their SUV.

Ford Endeavour

Ford Endeavour now comes with the most premium cabin of all, offering features like automatic park assist and 5-cylinder diesel engine on the top-spec model. The 2.2L engine can also be bought with a sunroof and Titanium+ variant guarantees the satisfying feature-loaded experience. On the other hand, Fortuner is available with a petrol engine too. The diesel engine on the Fortuner is good for five different variants, with base manual version losing all important features.

Ford Mustang GT is a successful product for its segment, getting 75 units on the sales chart of 2019. The car performed decently in comparison to the previous sales report as Ford had registered 93 units in the year 2018. For those who are yet to spot a Mustang on the Indian roads, the muscle car was launched back in mid-2016 for INR 65 lakh. The deliveries for the first six months helped the car gain presence among other exclusive cars of India and helped Ford get 148 buyers in 2017. The drop in sales for 2019 was 19% in comparison to 2018.

However, the current price tag of INR 74.62 lakh for the Mustang GT must have forced buyers to consider nearby performance options from Mercedes AMG or even the Porsche Cayman by raising the budget. The AMG models of CLA and C-Class from Mercedes are priced around the INR 80 lakh mark. Ford Mustang is an iconic car in comparison to all these options as the brand is still using a naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 petrol engine.

Ford Mustang is available in the 2020 variant in most markets while the right-hand steering countries are getting the 2018 variant. The new Mustang is lighter and more powerful. The car measures 4784mm in length, 2080mm in width and carries 2720mm of wheelbase. The engine comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox in the Indian version. The 2018 variant is good for 515Nm of torque at just 4250 rpm. The 2020 Mustang uses an even better engine-gearbox combination and it is expected to launch in the Indian market in the coming months.

Perfectly Customized Black Ford Endeavour SUV: Endeavour is presently the most insane product that one could buy under INR 35 lakh (ex-showroom). The road presence of this car beats almost anything standing close and more than that, it comes with two powerful engine options. This typical car seen here has been offered with a host of accessories, fitted right from the dealership before delivery.

It seems like dealer must have used aftermarket parts after getting a signed document from the customer that reads the consequences of the same on warranty. This Ford Endeavour is equipped with 20-inch wheels, huge off-road specific tyres, Raptor style front grill, black highlights on headlight and taillight, all-black body paint and LED rear brake light.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed AT gearbox. Ford recently relaunched the manual gearbox option for Endeavour due to high demand.

As per the latest buzz, the new Ford Mustang will launch in the Indian market in April 2020, which has been on sale globally for quite some time. The updated Ford Mustang was first showcased at the 2018 Frankfurt Motor Show. The all-new India-spec model will possess the same power output that is present in the pre-facelift model, which is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 naturally-aspirated petrol engine.

When the facelifted Mustang was initially unveiled, Ford decided to skip launching the updated model in India as the brand rather wanted to launch the next-generation model. Whereas, the American automobile manufacturer is now interested in bringing the facelifted Mustang to the Indian market.

As per the recent reports, the updated model will be offered in a single trim while fluctuation in the price of the car is highly unlikely to happen. The currently retailing pre-facelift version of the Mustang is available at a price tag of INR 74.62 lakh (ex-showroom India).

Although the updated version is powered by the same engine, the facelifted model has been upgraded to offer a maximum power of 450HP, which is higher than the pre-facelift model that is good for 415HP. It is being speculated that in the new Mustang, the company is planning to pair the engine with a 10-speed automatic gearbox in place of the 6-speed AT transmission offered on the current-gen model available in India.

The front fascia of the new Mustang has been redesigned as the muscle car now has sharper headlights and a sporty bonnet. The grille of the facelifted Mustang has also been upgraded to give it a slimmer, sleeker profile. The interiors of the car now feature a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with mild cosmetic tweaks.

Towards the rear end, the car has been equipped with a redesigned bumper and diffuser. The facelifted Ford Mustang also gets three new paint shades which include blue, orange, and red. In addition to that, the coupe also gets a set of new 19-inch alloy wheels, which will be available in three finishes.

Ford has officially dropped the drapes from the Mustang Mach-E, an all-electric SUV. The Mach-E has been designed to deliver car-like performance when it will be launched in late 2020 or early 2021. The SUV is the American brand’s introductory long-range electric car and the only Ford SUV that will be retailed under the Mustang brand name.

It’s a valiant effort by Ford as it has transformed a classic product into a brand of its own. About the styling and performance, the brand claims that the Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV is heavily inspired by the Mustang series of muscle cars.

The company has put special emphasis towards the front end as instead of a traditional grille, the American automaker preferred on providing the Mustang Mach-E with a nose that matches the SUV’s body colour. Although the brand has tried to be sagacious with the design yet the Mustang Mach-E is one of the highest-profile EV launched to date, so it is currently under the exploration process.

The SUV was unveiled a few days ago at the Hawthorne Airport in the backyard of Tesla. The Mach-E is the first vehicle to come out of Team Edison, which is Ford’s dedicated electric vehicle organisation. In terms of infotainment, the all-electric SUV is equipped with a 15.5-inch screen and a physical dial has been positioned under the screen for the controls. There is also a horizontally-placed 10.2-inch screen behind the steering wheel.

The Mustang Mach-E has been built upon a new Ford EV platform called Global Electrified 2 (GE2). The entry-level vehicle has a single motor driving the rear wheels with two options: 75kWh battery with 258HP motor and a 99kWh battery with 289HP motor. As far as the torque is concerned, both variants produce 416Nm.

The less-powerful model has a company-claimed electric range of 450km while the more-powerful model claims 595km of total range. According to the brand, the rear-wheel-drive model of the Mustang Mach-E SUV can sprint from 0-100kmph in less than 8 seconds.

The SUV is also available in a twin-motor all-wheel-drive version, which also has two options: 75kWh battery with 258HP motor and a 99kWh battery with 337HP motor. Both the AWD variants are good for 582Nm of peak torque while they can reach 100km top speed in less than 7 seconds. The less-powerful AWD model has a company-claimed electric range of 419km while the more-powerful model claims 540km of total range.

The boot space of the car stands at 402-litres, while it also has a 100-litre storage compartment at the front. Ford has also listed the Mustang Mach-E on their official US website along with the prices. Here is the variant-wise price list of the SUV:

Mustang Mach-E Price List

  • Select: $43,895 (INR 31.51 lakh)
  • Premium: $50,600 (INR 36.32 lakh)
  • California Route 1: $52,400 (INR 37.61 lakh)
  • First Edition: $59,900 (INR 43.00 lakh)
  • GT: $60,500 (INR 43.43 lakh)

In India, Ford has recently entered into a joint venture with Mahindra under which both the companies will co-develop 7 new models. As of now, Ford has not announced anything regarding the launch of the Mustang Mach-E in the Indian market.

Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the best performance trucks in the world. It has a loud design, and without any doubt, it is the supercar among the pickup trucks of the world. This truck is truly high-powered and can run just as fast over dirt and gravel as it can on the tarmac. Ford was the company that put the performance pickup trucks on the map when it introduced the F-150 Raptor to the world back in 2010.

This truck is capable of handling any terrain and just within a short period of time, it has become the dream off-roader of every enthusiast in the world. Normal pickup trucks were popular only in a few countries, but Ford decided to offer aftermarket additions to their normal Raptor and bring it to a brand-new segment of performance pickup trucks. Here are a few things that you should know about the F-150 Raptor.

7 Must-Know Facts About the F-150 Raptor

1) Engine – Last year, the Raptor received one of the biggest changes to its mechanical components, which was carried over to this year. Changing from the 6.2-litre V8 engine to a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6, Ford ensured that the engine produced an impressive 450HP of maximum torque and 691.5Nm of peak torque. Power is sent to all the wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission coupled with an all-wheel-drive system. This drive-train allows the Raptor to take full advantage of the V6 engine.

2) Seating & Cargo Space – The Raptor is available only in the SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations. There is ample space for adults to sit in both the models and the rear seats are quite comfortable over longer trips. The interior cargo space can be extended by flipping up the rear passenger seats. The bed on the Raptor, however, is available only in one size, a 5-foot 6-inch bed, the smallest available on the pickup truck segment of the Ford lineup. Increasing the bed size would have a negative impact on the performance of the pickup truck.

3) Interior – The interior design of the Raptor may feel a bit old when compared to the other pickup trucks such as the Dodge RAM 1500 or the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. However, the placement of the controls is quite sensible and easy for operation while driving. There is a large infotainment screen which is guarded by the air conditioning vents. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather for better comfort while driving, and there are a lot of spaces in the interior for storage of cups and bottles. There is a large armrest in the centre, which makes cruising on the Raptor quite comfortable. The seats are electronically adjustable in eight different positions. An optional SYNC3 infotainment system is a logical choice; it makes the things on the screen easy to read, and the menu layout is quite crisp as well.

4) Suspension – Taking the Raptor off the road will not only require a powerful engine but also a good suspension setup. To address this, Ford introduced an innovative suspension setup on the Raptor, as it is equipped with Fox Racing performance shock absorbers, which provide the truck with 13-inches of travel at the front and 14-inches of travel at the rear. This makes the truck quite capable off the road and gives a smooth on-road drive as well. The truck also features a Torque-on-Demand transfer case, a Terrain Management System, 6 driving modes, and an electronically locking rear differential, all of which help it to endure the hurdles when off the road.

5) Safety Equipment – There is a host of safety equipment that comes standard on the Raptor. The list includes a backup camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist (DHA), front and side-impact airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and traction control with Roll Stability Control (RSC). The urban usage of the truck might require you to attach a trailer behind the truck and while reversing, the Dynamic Hitch Assist comes into play, providing you with guidelines to better lineup the truck. There is an optional 360-degree camera and Pro Trailer Backup Assist. Using the latter option, all you have to do is point towards the direction that you would want the trailer to go and forget about counter-steering while backing up.

6) Rivals – The F-150 Raptor does not have any true rivals since it is the only performance pickup truck that is available in the market. However, there are some products from different companies which come close to matching its performance and capabilities. There is the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, which is a lightweight pickup, the Ram Power Wagon, and the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon which comes equipped with quite a lot of off-roading gear. However, the Power Wagon from Ram is quite large and cannot fit into spaces that the Raptor can easily manoeuvre through. The truck from Jeep is capable off the road but on terrains such as a desert, it cannot match against the Raptor. The Raptor is the only machine that can fly over the desert, while the others can only crawl on the trails.

7) Price – The F-150 Raptor starts at $53,205 in the United States of America. When launched in India, the price could be upwards of INR 1.20 crores. This is the expected figure that we get when we compare the price of the Mustang GT in the USA and the one that we get in India. Buying a pickup truck at this price would not be a viable option for the Indian customers, regardless of all the features that are being offered.
