Famous Ford Cars Throughout the Years

You don’t become as revered and long-lasting as Ford without creating a few icons over the years. As one of the oldest automakers in the industry, Ford has created legendary models, some of which are still around today. We at L&L Motors know of a few famous Ford cars that have been brand milestones throughout the years.

Ford Model T

With a production run exceeding 16.5 million, the Ford Model T revolutionized the early automotive industry. Powered by a four-cylinder engine, the Model T was produced for two decades and effectively jumpstarted America’s interest in vehicles. In all of the brand’s century-plus history, no model has been as influential as the Ford Model T.

Ford GT

You can’t make a list of famous Ford cars without including the Ford GT, the astounding supercar that turned heads and broke records. The streel-legal performance car arrived in 2004 with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 550 hp. Unfortunately, it left the market in 2006. A decade later, the model made its triumphant return and is still in production today.

Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang was introduced in the mid-1960s and kicked off a craze for an entire generation. The American muscle car brought superior performance to the industry, and its sleek styling certainly didn’t hurt. Today, the Ford Mustang is still going strong with plenty of trim levels and powertrains to choose from.

Mustang Line-Lock Feature Added to EcoBoost Models

2017 Ford Mustang

Once you’ve experience the thrill and power that a burnout offers, you will want to do it again and again. Ford is now giving all Mustang owners that opportunity. It has announced that the Mustang line-lock features will come standard on all 2018 Mustang models, including those equipped with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine.

“We introduced line-lock on EcoBoost Mustangs because we didn’t want those customers to miss out,” said Mark Schaller, Ford Mustang marketing manager. “The number of people choosing EcoBoost power continues to grow globally, and with the increased torque and new features coming on the new Mustang, customers will not be disappointed.”

Line-lock, which is a truck-exclusive feature, is used by drag racers to warm up the tires just before the race begins. When activated, line-lock builds up pressure in the front brakes so the driver can hit the throttle and spin out the rear wheels for up to 15 seconds.

In addition, Mustangs equipped with the available 12-inch digital instrument display will get see an animation of a tire throwing up a cloud of smoke when line-lock is activated.

Here at L&L Motor Co., we are excited that Ford decided to add the Mustang Line-Lock feature to all Mustang models. No matter if you choose the EcoBoost, V6, or one of the V8 engines, the Ford Mustang is guaranteed to deliver a thrilling ride.
