What's your story?
Everybody's got one. But the stories that come from those who own a Ford just happen to be a little more interesting. Maybe we're partial, but we know what we like. And we like to hear from each other about our driving experiences. So we can laugh, learn, let it out, and... what else? You tell us.

Shortly after taking delivery of our new Explorer, we set out to TN. We averaged 25mpg with the EcoBoost. It was really amazing how it "knew" where to find gas and avoid traffic. We love the space, the quiet cabin and super smooth ride. Really a great travel vehicle and it was surprising that

The 3.5 in the Taurus Limited, SEL and SE does not come with an engine cover. I discovered that the engine cover for a Lincoln MKS Base will fit. So, I threw one on. It says Lincoln but Lincoln is Ford and it looks better than the bare motor. I may customize it sometime.
