Ford will be going into its 117th year in 2020, and that's a heck of a long time for any company to be doing anything. As one of the Big Three automakers, Ford has been producing some of the most memorable cars on the road for that entire 117-year run from the legendary Model T through to the '60s-defining Ford Mustang and all the way up to the technologically advanced Ford Fusion hybrids. Ford knows what's up! And it's high time you did, too.
When you have a passion for something, it just makes sense to want to keep up to date on as much about it as you can. For that reason, we've scoured the web for some of the best and most diverse sites and blogs that will fully immerse you in the Ford world as you head into 2020 and beyond. It's all well and good to read the Ford website or just hit up their Wikipedia page, but there's so much more to learn and know and see about the company and their vehicles. If you have a passion for the work of Henry Ford, then take a look and find your new favorite Ford website to ring in the new year.
Keepin' it fast
Fast Ford Mag is a UK-based site that is up to its tailpipe in the world of Ford from custom project cars to the latest news on advances and designs that are coming down the road. You can subscribe to a print edition of the magazine or just check out some of the progress from the ground up of the team's custom Ford jobs, not to mention galleries and videos from custom Ford competitions, races and more. If Ford isn't just a car but a hobby, this is a site well worth checking out.
If you've never checked out Ford Social, do yourself a favor and check it out now. This is Ford's own glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of Ford, so not only are you getting typical news on the latest releases and features, but you're also getting access to things like new prototypes or how Ford is using virtual reality to design new generations of vehicles. Before other blogs pick it up, it's going to be on Ford Social.
Keep on truckin'
As popular as Ford cars are, you can't overlook the world of Ford trucks. There's a reason the F-series have been the best-selling trucks in America since 1977, after all. The Ford Truck Enthusiasts site is your one-stop-shop for all things Ford truck, literally in fact. Do you need vintage parts for your '70s F-150? You can find them here. Do you need to know how your brakes system works? Or the best way to detail for Ford Super Duty? That's all here too, along with picture galleries and forums to discuss with fellow truck owners.
Read it on Reddit
Reddit forums are a great place to share some news and opinions in real-time with fellow Ford fans, and the Ford subreddit is an active one with several posts per day coming in to keep you interested. Like any good subreddit, there's a ton of variety here from discussions on the latest Mustang engine to people posting pics of their custom work, or just the truck they got from mom and dad. It's a community of Ford drivers and fans, and if that sounds like you, it's worth a look.
Must be a Mustang
Of all the vehicles that Ford produces and has produced in its 117 years, have any achieved the legendary status of the Mustang? Not likely. That's why Vintage Mustang exists, to fully appreciate and explore the awesomeness that was the first pony car ever made back in 1964 and beyond. This is an absolutely massive forum with over 3.4 million posts and 60,000 members. While some forums struggle to get a post per month, Vintage Mustang moves at a very brisk pace that leaves others in the dust, just like a Mustang.
Auto Express is a great place for the latest news and reviews of cars. Now it's generally not Ford specific, but that's the miracle of the internet, you can make things specific. Just narrow your focus to Ford only and bam! Auto Express is now Ford Express. You can refine it down further to specific Ford models or check out the latest news in the world of Ford from tech innovations to reviews of the latest models.
This blog's no slog
Autoblog.com is one of the biggest names in automotive news, so you have to turn to them if you're curious about anything relating to cars. Don't want to get bogged down by Chevy or Bugatti news? Narrow it down to Ford news and experience nearly 10,000 articles (and growing) that deal with your favorite manufacturer. Topics range from a look at the 825-hp Shelby Super Snake Bold Edition to a recall of Super Duty trucks due to fire risk.
History at your fingertips
Henry Ford was many things, including an incredible innovator. The Henry Ford Museum is a bit of a different path to take if you're passionate about Ford, but definitely worth a look if the history of the company holds any interest to you. Not only can you plan a visit to the actual museum, but the site is chock full of articles on the history of the company and the cultural significance of Ford vehicles. The site even has a section for recipes and cookbooks because it's 2020, and the internet has no limits.
Nothing but the truth
How can you not be even a little interested in a site called The Truth About Cars? Part of Autoguide, the Truth About Cars is brimming with news, opinions, reviews, and podcasts that cover everything related to the auto world and, of course, there's a specific Ford segment as well. That means sure, you'll see the newest Ford model when it comes out but also profiles of rare classic Fords, comparisons between Ford and the competition, and even junkyard finds.
There's a world of difference between a Ford Escort and a Ford F-150. If you find yourself much more into the latter category, then you want an F-150 friendly place to go and discuss trucks without the rest of the stuff getting in the way. The F-150 Forum is the place to do just that. With over 6 million posts and over 320,000 members, you better believe any and every topic relevant to F-150 trucks is covered here.
All about performance
Let's be honest, there are Fords, and then there are Fords. A Ford Taurus gets you to work. A Ford Mustang does something else entirely, and that's why Ford has a site specifically geared towards the performance side of the company. The website covers every performance vehicle Ford has made from the Ford GT to the Fiesta ST. It also breaks it down between motorsports and enthusiasts to keep things fun.
All the classics
Modern Fords are all well and good, but there's something special about the classics, isn't there? That's why Classic Ford Magazine exists. When you want to get into the real nuts and bolts of an Mk2 Cortina or a Ford Thunderbird from the late 1950s, maybe check out pics from the Classic Ford Awards, then this is where you want to go. You can even go there to buy or sell your classic Ford if you're so inclined.
Sometimes the best kind of blog is one that takes a simple approach to the topic. One Man and His Mustang isn't about every new Ford, every old Ford, reviews, editorials, or crazy custom jobs. It's about what the name says it's about — one guy who decided to restore a 1966 Ford Mustang coupe and how he's going about doing it every step of the way. This is pretty much car appreciation in its purest form.
A forum for all
Ford Forums Online boasts one of the most extensive and in-depth forums you'll find on any topic, Ford or otherwise. Broken down into every conceivable segment, you can get on here and discuss Ford geographically based on where you live in the world, based on the specific model of Ford you like, or based on the part of the Ford you're interested in across boards like "Heating and Air Conditioning" or "Tires, Wheels, and Bearings." Not an inch of your Ford will be left untouched here.
All the classics
No list of sites dedicated to Ford should overlook Classic Driver. Though not Ford specific, what it does have on Ford is not to be missed. From sales and auctions of classic and hard to find cars, there's also the magazine segment that will detail everything from reviews of "Ford vs. Ferrari" to profiles of classic Ford GT40s being sold at auction to a look at the last surviving GT40 roadster in the world.
No need to hem and haw over this
Hemmings is an indispensable automotive site for any car lover. Updated several times a day with amazing photos and stories of cars you've probably never even seen on the road before like a Ford F-100 Styleside or auctions for things like a 1948 Mercury Eight, Hemmings is second to none when it comes to classic cars and wide-reaching news and information. No other site can offer you as much as Hemmings.
Built by hand
We're going a little left of center on this one to show you Hand Built Cars, a YouTube channel you really need to subscribe to. This channel breaks down tuning and modifying cars in a super helpful way, but it also has a series of amazing Ford-specific videos like the custom build of a 1969 Ford Torino Talladega 529 Boss or the 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Cobra Jet Fastback Shaker Hood restoration project. If you love classic Fords and their restorations, you need to check this out.
Motor1's Ford section is as in-depth and as detailed as anything you could ask for online. You can check out the latest on the all-electric Mustang of the future, reviews of the latest Explorer, or even get into the finer details of how the recall of the Super Duty was able to be fixed with duct tape. With a focus on buyers as much as enthusiasts, Motor1 has long been a source for excellent car info, and their Ford section is no slouch.
The authoritative word
Motor Authority is at the cutting edge of car news and is renowned for its expert breakdowns and insight as well as breaking news that shows up here first. It's for that reason you'd be doing yourself a favor to check out Motor Authority's Ford section. Check out their review of the 1,000 horsepower Project M Mustang or some Spy Shots of the latest models that literally no other sites have published yet.
The last word
Car and Driver started as a magazine back in 1955 and is currently read by over 1 million subscribers. When what you want is the final word on a Ford vehicle, how it handles, how it accelerates, how it brakes, you check out the Car and Driver review to get that insight from experts. The website will show you literally every Ford on the market and all the specs you could ever care about and then some.
From the Mustang's mouth
Who better to get news on Ford from than Ford? The Ford Media Center has the latest news and info about Ford from press-releases, innovations, and facts about what's new in the world of Ford. That can include everything from how the new Ford Super Duty stacks up as a snowplow to how many buyers who reserved a 2020 Mustang Mach E opted to get theirs with an extended range battery. It's everything you could want to know about Ford from Ford.
Check your pockets!
Pocket-Lint is a site devoted to technology and explaining the latest innovations and trends in a way that's entertaining and informative. If it's cool and interesting, they'll explain why, and they do exactly that with their coverage of Ford. Any site can tell you about the Ford Focus, but Pocket-Lint gets into the self-parking Focus that you don't even need to be in while it parks. A standard car site will tell you the cost of an S-Max, but Pocket-Lint explains how the new concept version measures your heart rate.
The Mod Squad
If a regular Ford is good, then a modified Ford is better, right? You better believe it. If you're down with Ford cars that have been tweaked to race, especially older European models from before 2010, then the Modified Ford site is going to be the place for you. The scope of the modified racing world in the UK is remarkable, and the site offers up videos, galleries and info about events and even a shop if you're looking for a little swag.
The ultimate Mustang
You can't really deny that, out of every Ford ever made, the Mustang may be the coolest one. This monster dates back to 1964, and it started the entire pony car segment in the automotive world, so it demands some respect. Mustang 360 calls itself the ultimate source for Mustang news and reviews, and they are not lying. From custom projects, model reviews, and details on pretty much every single Mustang ever created, there's no end of info here for a Mustang lover.
Part of the whole
This is definitely more on the tech side of things, but if you have any interest in assembling, maintaining, repairing, or tweaking a Ford, you need All Ford Parts. New parts, old parts, reproduction parts that date back to the 1930s and some even earlier — no matter what model of Ford you're interested in, they have what you need here so it may as well be your first stop rather than the last one to get things done.
