Do You Have What It Takes to Get Unstuck this Winter?

Sand, salt, and cat litter will all provide great traction if you get stuck on the ice or in the snow and you need to get out. Bring a bag with you at all times when you drive in the winter and then generously pour it around your wheels when you need to get some traction.

Sand is a great tool to use, and it is fairly cheap. It may be more difficult to find than, say, cat litter which is in every grocery store. Cat litter can tend to get messy so make sure that you get the non-clumping…

Get Help From Ford with Keeping an Eye on the Blind Spot

Meet the 2018 Ford F-150. Meet the Real McCoy of Trucks


What type of truck do you think Elijah McCoy would drive today if he were alive? Our bets are on the F-150.

The 2016 Ford Focus RS can streak its way off the drag strip in about 4.5 seconds, according to Ford—but that's under ideal conditions: sticky tires, dry tarmac, track-mode, launch-control, and a professional driver who knows precisely when to shift.
