"The truck (FORD Ranger) will be built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, alongside a new version of the Bronco SUV. The Bronco will be revealed at a later date"

RANGER LAUNCH (2019) FIRST STEP TOWARD "BRONCO 2020"

""Once declared dead, the midsize pickup truck segment has been reinvigorated over the past few years by new or updated entries from General Motors, Honda, and Toyota. But Ford has been noticeably absent, having axed its Ranger in 2011. But now, finally, the Ranger is back. The 2019 Ford Ranger debuted at this month’s 2018 Detroit Auto Show roughly a year after Ford announced the truck’s return to the United States. Ford has actually sold Ranger models internationally since 2011, but insists the new model unveiled in Detroit was heavily re-engineered for the North American market. On the outside, the Ranger is fairly generic looking. Flared round wheel arches and a grille that vaguely resembles the larger F-150’s are the only real hints at character. Like rival Chevrolet, Ford opted not to just make its midsize truck a mini version of its full-size model. The 2019 Ranger will be offered in Supercab or Supercrew configurations, with rear half doors and four full-size doors, respectively. Ford didn’t offer many details on the powertrain. The Ranger will be offered with a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, but Ford didn’t quote power output or tow ratings. The EcoBoost engine will be coupled to the same 10-speed automatic transmission used in the F-150, with standard rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. Given that most competitors offer multiple powertrain options, it’s possible that Ford will add other engines to lineup at a future date. At launch, the Ranger will get an optional FX4 Off-Road Package, including a Terrain Management System derived from the one in the F-150 Raptor. Like similar systems offered by numerous other manufacturers, Ford’s automatically tailors different vehicle settings for different types of terrain. The FX4 package also includes Trail Control, which acts like off-road cruise control by handling steering and braking on rough terrain. There’s no word yet on whether the U.S. will get the Ranger Raptor performance model already teased for international markets. Like larger Ford trucks, the Ranger will be offered with an array of driver-assist features. The list includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring (which works even with a trailer attached), and adaptive cruise control. Tech features include available Amazon Alexa connectivity, a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The 2019 Ford Ranger will start production at the end of this year. The truck will be built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, alongside a new version of the Bronco SUV. The Bronco will be revealed at a later date, as will pricing information for the Ranger.""

1908-2018 110 Years of Desert Racing Celebration

                                   Desert Racing Celebration 2018 Origins 1908
                                               Stay Tuned Here>>>

Modern desert racing, in North America, constantly traces its roots to the 60's. The era identified as 'off road racing'

However, around the globe, automotive racing history points out events and people who started far beyond North America's myopic view.

The Grand Prizes of Europe often pin the beginning of vehicle, car and truck competitions as the dawn of motorsports.

Desert Racing in North America began with "The Desert Classic" series of competitive events in 1908. 'One-Hundred and Ten Years Ago', an era of heralded motorsports was enjoyed by the masses. 

Bigger than baseball, bigger than every entertainment noted at the time. On the cover of newspapers throughout the West, desert racing truly began on the streets and into the desert wastes from Los Angeles, California. 

Los Angeles- LA- The biggest, baddest wild-west boom town in history.
