The Latest Mustang Customizer App Offers Better Angles, More Detail

2014 Ford Mustang Ford recently released an updated version of their Mustang Customizer app, available at both the virtual Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. The redesigned app actually allows you to see the car from every angle, thanks to their new 3D rendering system.

You can also use the program to find a dealer near you, as well as to find an existing Mustang similar to whatever custom-made model you made within the app. Truly, creating a custom vehicle has never been easier.

Not only can you adjust your perfect Mustang to any paint color, you also have control over the wheels and tons of other parts that bring the vehicle together. Best of all – the app itself is totally free.  This is the best way to get a feel for the Mustang that is perfect for you; and it doesn’t cost you a thing!

Even if you’re not actually considering a Mustang purchase in the near future, the app is still a blast to fool around with, especially for Mustang fans. Check out the Mustang Customizer app, and tell us about your experience in the comments!  We would love to hear about how the Mustang Customizer App works.

Ford F-150 Crash Results Quiets Critics

Ford F-150 interiorThe Ford F-150 is getting attention from all corners. In fact, Ford is going to need a bigger trophy case if this award-streak continues.

Being that the Ford F-150 would be the first aluminum truck in production, there were some initial questions from skeptics as whether the aluminum body would prove safe in the event of a collision. Results from recent tests by the National Highway Safety have certainly allayed all of those concerns.

The 2015 Ford F-150 received the highest crash ratings from the NHTSA in all the F-150’s permutations. According to USA Today, the four-door SuperCrew cab version as well as the regular and SuperCab versions received 5-stars.  Not only is the safety expectation in trucks being met by the 2015 Ford F-150, but this new model is raising the standard for safety in all trucks!

How does Ford feel about the Ford F-150 crash results? Ford spokesperson Mike Levine said, “We’re proud the all-new Ford F-150 is the only full-size, light-duty truck to earn NHTSA’s highest 5-star rating for the driver and passenger for all crash test modes and cab configurations.”

In other accolades, the 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCab Lariat caught the attention of AAA. Their Green Car Guide listed the Lariat as best in the pickup truck category.
