Friday Video – Shocking New Ford F-150 Raptor

Ford Performance is quite proud of the shock absorbers fitted to the new Ford F-150 Raptor. So much so that they’ve made a video to celebrate. For us, it’s just an excuse to see the forthcoming pick-up truck looking awesome in the desert. What’s so special about these shock absorbers? Having been jointly developed with Fox, the…

Friday Photo – Design your very own Ford GT

Wanting your own slice of the Ford GT’s American pie? A new online configurator lets you live the dream. Be warned – just because you can now pick out the colours and trim you desire, doesn’t mean you can have one though. In a move that sounds more Maranello than Dearborn, those who want the…

Friday Photo | The madness of SEMA 2015

EngageSportMode has featured the SEMA show, and the quite literally mental creations it throws up, before. This year seems to have been just as crazy, so we’ve pulled together a gallery featuring some of the wildest offerings. Just remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or something like that. Car modification in the UK seems to…

UPDATED – Ford GT Inspired Design Objects – Gallery

Although it has a turbocharged engine in place of a huge V8, and also comes fitted with a two-spoke steering wheel, ESM can’t help but like the new Ford GT. It’s a seriously good-looking car. So the idea of objects inspired by it sounds like a great one. Don’t be mislead into believing there’ll be a…

Finally Here – The New 2015 Ford Focus RS

When Ford releases details and pictures of a new car wearing the RS badge, it’s a big deal. Does the third instalment of the Focus RS live up to the hype, and successfully carry on the ‘Rallye Sport’ lineage? The biggest news is the fact the third generation Focus RS comes with All-Wheel-Drive. After almost 15…

New – Revised Ford Focus ST

In all the Goodwood Festival of Speed and British Touring Car Championship excitement, the full details of the revised Ford Focus ST were also announced. So here they are, with lots of Tangerine Scream paintwork action. Did you know, ST stands for Sports Technologies. We’ll admit that we didn’t, until writing this, but consider us all…

New Ford Focus ST to debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

You know it, we love the Ford Focus ST here at EngageSportMode. So much so that we awarded the ST Mountune Estate the prestigious ESM ‘best car driven in 2013‘ prize earlier this year. So news of a new one has got us understandably excited. Excited, and in suspense, as so far Ford is keeping tight-lipped…

Ford Zetec S – Red / Black Special Editions

Special editions of Ford’s supermini get bold colours, distinctive styling and a 1.0 litre engine with 140 PS! Yes, you read that right. A 1.0 litre engine producing 138 brake horsepower. I know; the mind just truly boggles. Think back only a few years and the Fiesta ST, with its 2.0 litre engine, was making only…

Facelifted Ford Focus – Kind of a Big Deal

It’s hard to ignore the importance of a car which sold 1.1 million units in 2013, with over 87,000 examples registered in the UK alone. The Focus is a perennial best-seller for Ford, and the revised version is likely to be no different. Ford also promises it’s even better to drive, which sounds hopeful for a potential RS…

Friday Photo from the Archive #12

After an extended hiatus due to relocation, ESM returns with it’s regular Friday feature. Ok, 24 hours probably doesn’t qualify as archived, but EngageSportMode finds it impossible not to feature the all new 2015 Ford Mustang. So here it is: Styled by Moray Callum, younger brother of Ian Callum, the new Mustang dispenses with a lot…
