Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang Named Sports Car of the Year by Popular Mechanics

DEARBORN, Mich., March 23, 2016 - Ford Shelby® GT350R Mustang, one of the most iconic performance nameplates of all time, has been named Popular Mechanics Sports Car of the Year. Popular Mechanics says Shelby GT350R was selected from among a host of contenders because it pushes the boundaries of what an American sports car can be. Shelby GT350R's unique, high-revving flat-plane crankshaft 5.2-liter V8 produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque - the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever for the most track-capable, street-legal Mustang ever built.


2017 Ford GT : The Star-Spangled, 600-plus-hp Hypercar!


"Engineered to keep company with exotics" is how Ford modestly refers to its bombshell 2015 Detroit auto show debut, the GT hypercar. The concept's appearance wasn't a huge surprise, as we learned months ago that Ford was taking a new GT to Le Mans in 2016, and such a car must be homologated. But as it slinked onto a stage at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, Ford kept feeding us a host of stats that had our jaws opening wider by the second. It packs more than 600 horsepower. It utilizes full carbon-fiber construction and body panels. It has active aerodynamics. The new GT is poised to not only keep company with other exotics, but perhaps also force them to up their game.

2015 Ford F-150 brings bigaluminum to the Rust Belt

By Jeremy Korzeniewski

Posted Jan 13th 2014 9:05AM

Just when you thought you'd figured the fullsize truck market out, Ford goesand throws us a massive curve ball with the 2015 F-150. The big headline newsaren't tow or payload ratings, though we're sure those figures will be fullycompetitive if not class leading, they haven't yet been announced. Instead, thebig headline news Ford is highlighting are the truck's new aluminum-intensivestructure and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.

And with good reason - all that aluminum means that Ford was able to cut a massive700 pounds from the truck's curb weight. That is going to cause all sorts ofgreat things to happen to the 2015 F-150's driving dynamics, performance andfuel efficiency, not to mention its ability to haul heavy loads. For thosecustomers worried about the strength of aluminum versus the more conventionalsteel, Ford is quick to point out that many military vehicles, such as theHMMWV and Bradley Fighting Vehicle, use a very similar sort of aluminum alloyin their construction.

It's also worth mentioning that the backbone, a fully boxed ladder frame, ishewn from high-strength steel. Ford says "2015 Ford F-150 is the strongestand most durable F-150 ever," for what it's worth, claiming that"torture tested" in labs and in the real world for more than 10million miles. What's more, the truck, in disguised form, completed all 883miles of the Baja 1000.

Engine options are equally intriguing; with a new 2.7 EcoBoost V6 engine makingthe most headlines. That engine, which Ford says will "deliver the samepower as some mid-range V8s," doesn't yet have official power orefficiency ratings but sits right above the base 3.5-liter V6. The well-known3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 carries over, as does the 5.0-liter V8. Other high-techtidbits include a 360-degree camera, which ought to make maneuvering themassive truck much easier, LED lighting all around, an eight-inch in-cabin LCDscreen.

TIME magazine And Goodyear Honor Sue McFarland Moynahan
Exeter Dealer Wins National Recognition for
Community Service and Industry Accomplishments at NADA Convention

 Susan McFarland Moynahan, president of McFarland Ford Sales, Inc. of Exeter, will be honored on Saturday, Feb. 5 as the 2011 New Hampshire TIME Dealer of the Year.

Sue, the 2006-07 chair of the NHADA Board of Directors (having joined the board in 2003), is one of a select group of dealers from across the country honored at the 94th annual National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Exposition in San Francisco.

The announcement of this year's Dealer of the Year and finalists was expected to be made at a planned formal opening of the convention, which is expected to have more than 15,000 individuals involved in the automobile industry in attendance.

The TIME Dealer of the Year award is one of the automobile industry's most prestigious and highly coveted awards for new-car dealers. Recipients are among the nation's most successful auto dealers, who have demonstrated a long-standing commitment to effective community service.

Sue, 54, was chosen to represent the NHADA in the national competition and is one of only 52 automobile dealers to be nominated from 17,000 nationwide for the 42nd annual award. The award is sponsored by TIME in association with Goodyear, and in cooperation with NADA.

"Working with my Dad and brother is the most rewarding part of my automotive career," Sue said. "We have always worked well together and complimented each other with our relative strengths, while giving each other room to grow."

Sue graduated from Phillips Academy, in Andover, MA, in 1974, attended Middlebury (VT) College, from 1974-77, and graduated from the University of New Hampshire, in Durham, in 1978, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

That same year Sue began her full-time automotive career as an office manager at McFarland Ford Sales, Inc., in Exeter. She had worked during her college summers in the accounting office. Sue became the third generation of McFarlands in the store, which was founded in 1957 by Donald J. McFarland, Henry O. McFarland, her father, and Frank O. Patterson.

"In 1984," says Sue, "I became partner when we began Hampton Ford Inc. in North Hampton."

Sue was instrumental in taking manual parts and accounting into the computer age in the mid '70s and worked at the second dealership in the mid-'80s, coming back to McFarland Ford in 1994 when Henry McFarland became semi-retired, when she took over managerial capacity. Today, she and her brother, Jay D. McFarland, an at-large member of the NHADA Board of Directors representing franchised dealers, remain partners in both family dealerships.

Sue has a long and distinguished record in community service. She dedicates her time, talents and resources to a number of highly valued civic and charitable enterprises, including: the Exeter Area Charitable Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce, which is primarily responsible for the Chamber Children's Fund; the Sea Care Board of Directors, an agency that coordinates pro bono services of 400+ physicians, therapists, dentists, and agencies in the Exeter and Portsmouth areas; chair of the renovation committee of the Seacoast School of Technology, overseeing an $8 million renovation of the career and technical high school; spearheading "Drive One 4 Ur School" test drive event, which benefited the Seacoast School of Technology and Exeter High School with over $9,000 for clubs and the computer lab; Rye Library trustee for six years in the '90s; and EMT on the Rye Volunteer Ambulance Corps from '82-'92. In May 2010, Sue received the SAU 16, Exeter School System, Champion of Children Award for her efforts over the last ten years on behalf of the Seacoast School of Technology.

"This award recognized the years of commitment," says Sue, "and the collaboration with the business community."

Nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year award by New Hampshire's last three nominees, Sue and her husband, John, have three children, Kaitlin, Shannon, and Peter. Sue also represents Ford and Hyundai at the McFarland family dealership in North Hampton.

A panel of faculty members from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan selects one finalist from each of the four NADA regions and one national Dealer of the Year.
