Ford’s announcement that it has just built the 10 millionth Mustang is cause for celebration, even allowing for the fact this most famous of cars has been around since 1964.
Repetition inspires varied emotions here in New England. Pats fans nearly lost their minds in February, when Tom Brady and company managed to mount an insane comeback to win another Super Bowl. But we were much less happy about the blizzard last Saturday, exactly 20 years after an even bigger April Fools’ Day snowstorm and one brief year after Snowmageddon. Happily, our forecast calls for 60 degrees and sunshine on Tuesday, when we’ll head to the Javits Convention Center in NYC to cover the New York International Auto Show.
We visited the Detroit Auto Show in January, so have already seen some fantastic 2018s, but we can’t wait to meet the new Dodge Demon, Buick Regal, Volvo XC60, Subaru Crosstrek, and Audi RS3, among others. We’ll spare ourselves hours of traffic on I-95 by taking the train to get there and back, but if that weather forecast proves accurate, I know my team and I will be looking forward to top-down driving from the Acela.

Winter Storm Stella, microwave cameras, and St. Patrick dominated the news this week, but we’re more interested in the 2017 model year and which new cars shoppers want to see themselves driving. We’ve published 37 Test Drive Reviews of 2017 vehicles so far, and we’re going to take a look at those vehicles that have garnered the most inquiries from CarGurus shoppers. We haven’t spent enough time with a bunch of big sellers to review them yet, so we suspect our end-of-year list will look different, but we want to see which 2017s have already started generating interest. If you were buying a new car this year, do you know which 2017 you’d want to test drive first? Continue reading >>>
It happened in a movie, of course, and remains one of the most exciting and influential chase scenes in cinema history. The movie, “Bullitt,” came out in 1968, which means the 50th anniversary is next year.
A refreshed Mustang is due for 2018, and we have a pretty good idea of what it’ll look like and what engines it’ll have (no V6!?).
Plus, there’s a good chance that Ford will bless us with an all-new 50th anniversary edition of the Mustang Bullitt. Continue reading >>>
People get all bent out of shape when reading about their beloved Mustang going hybrid.
“I need my V8,” they say.
“A Mustang can’t be electric,” they say.
Part of the reason for the anti-hybrid sentiment is the legacy of the Prius. The slow, emotionless Toyota has branded hybrids as unexciting and something for the performance-minded to avoid altogether.
So the idea of a hybrid Mustang, the epitome of tire-smoking V8 power, has folks, well, up in smoke.
