Ford Raptor XT; $100k Ford Truck

November 4, 2009

Little pop quiz for y'all.

The most expensive Ford Motor Company product is?

Wrong. FoMoCo already unloaded Aston Martin. The most expensive factory-built Ford is the FR (Ford Racing) Raptor XT truck that the company is to unveil today Tuesday at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Well okay, so we exaggerate. The truck doesn't actually cost $100,000. It's only $99,950.

The XT is a turn-key professional pre-runner that Ford says is "nearly" the same truck it raced at the 2008 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.This means you get a 6.2-liter V8 which at "about 500 hp," makes almost 100 more hp than the production 6.2-liter will make. A 6-speed automatic, electronically selectable 4×4 with 4.56 gear sets and front and rear e-lockers. A revised suspension (compared to even the pretty extreme standard Raptor) brings 15 inches of front wheel travel and 18 inches of rear travel. The XT also comes with a chromoly roll cage, extra skid plates, tubular front and rear bumpers and sweet lighting.

And, although the XT will not be street legal, it comes standard with air conditioning and power windows. Ford Racing will make only 50 XTs. If you want something a little more, you know, less hugely expensive and more useful, try a street legal Raptor with the new 6.2-liter motor.

Ford Motor Company released its August 2009 sales numbers and posted a strong 21.4% increase (176,323 vehicles) in retail sales over August 2008.  This is the second month in a row that Ford has posted a year-over-year increase in sales.

Ford's fresh new lineup combined with the Government's Cash for Clunker program helped the only American auto company that hasn't taken bailout money increase its market share for 10 out of the past 11 months.

Ford – Earnings Preview

July 22, 2009

Ford Motor Company will announce its quarterly earnings tomorrow morning July 23, 2009 at 7 am ET and will hold a conference call at 9 am ET.

Analysts are expecting a loss of $0.52 per share on revenue of $24.71B.  Several analyst actually think Ford may post better EPS numbers than expected, but all eyes will really be on the companies cash burn rate and if they were able to slow it down. 

I think the EPS number will be pretty close to analyst estimates but slightly beat expectations, and I also expect to see an improved cash burn rate over the first quarter and year over year. 

“Car of the Year” – 2010 Taurus SHO

June 12, 2009


This is no surprise to me because right now nobody is building better vehicles than Ford.  The all new 2010 Taurus will be available later this summer, but you can get a sneak peak here at Northside Ford on June 24, 2009 from 5PM-7PM. 

Here is an excert from the official Ford press release.

Esquire magazine editors evaluated nearly a dozen significant new cars – using some unique subjective criteria – before naming the 2010 Taurus SHO as its inaugural Car of the Year. The article appears in the magazine's July issue, on newsstands today.

"We had three main criteria in selecting the Esquire Car of the Year," explained David Granger, editor-in-chief. "The vehicle needed to be a pleasure to drive and be capable of shortening your breath when you slam down the pedal. It needed to be gorgeous and aggressive, capable of eliciting stares and gawks. And it needed to be attainable – a vehicle that most men actually can buy and drive. The new Taurus SHO nailed all of these parameters."
