  • Ford Performance 3D-printed intake manifold for Ken Block's 1977 Hoonitruck F-150

    Ford can lay claim to a new 3D-printing milestone. The Ford Performance subsidiary's intake manifold found on Ken Block's 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck is the largest 3D-printed metal part made for a running vehicle ever. Ford Performance took a closer look at the intake manifold's creation in a video published Tuesday and detailed how intricate the design and engineering process was. Ford and Block dropped a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine under the Hoonitruck's hood, which required—to be blunt—a lot of freaking air. Engineers concluded they needed to create a bespoke intake...

  • 2020 BMW 7-Series

    The BMW 7-Series has always been a solid option in the full-size luxury sedan segment, especially for buyers who enjoy the occasional—or frequent—spirited drive. Yes, the 7-Series is a big sedan that can seriously hustle.
