Ford trademarks classic Maverick nameplate

  Ford trademarks classic Maverick nameplate It looks like Ford is going to revive yet another of its classic nameplates. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office lists the name Maverick as having been trademarked by the Blue Oval once again. Along with the Maverick name, the company trademarked the name Timberline. Both were issued in mid-April. Ford initially applied for the Maverick trademark in December 2016 and the Timberline trademark in January 2018.For the young'uns, the Maverick name was perhaps best known for its use on a midsize sedan and coupe from the '70s that was a size larger than the Ford Pinto.

Similar to the builder's bespoke BR series that takes old Broncos and transforms them into better than new ones, the Old School Bronco can be built in as little as six months depending on the type of interior design chosen.

Internet Revolts After Couple Trades in Husband's 'Dream' 1966 Ford Mustang for a New Audi S5

  Internet Revolts After Couple Trades in Husband's 'Dream' 1966 Ford Mustang for a New Audi S5 A harsh lesson in viral publicity for Audi Peoria.The internet is a fickle place, that we all know. But an Audi dealership in Illinois felt the unexpected wrath of the masses after posting a photo congratulating a local couple on trading in the husband's "dream car"—a pristine 1966 Ford Mustang GT—for a 2018 Audi S5 Sportback in the name of love.

When it comes to SUVs, the Ford Bronco is one of a few that are considered true American classics . Celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary, Icon is launching the Icon BR Ford Bronco Old School Series to soothe our craving for more of this beloved vehicle.

"Ten years ago, we had to create a different aesthetic when we launched the brand with the BR Bronco and FJ Land Cruiser. Now we can afford ourselves the luxury to do something much more stock. I've been wanting to evolve in this direction anyway."

Like the builder's BR Broncos, a Ford 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 engine that delivers 426 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque also powers the new series. The crate engine can be mated to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.

The Old School Series Broncos also feature a custom Art Morrison chassis, 12-inch-travel Fox Racing coilovers, custom Dynatrac Dana-based axles, a Borla exhaust system, and four-wheel disc Brembo brakes. The package rolls on beefy, 33-inch BFGoodrich tires with billet aluminum 4-slot wheels.

Up front, ICON adds modern LED lights that mimic the original factory ones; around back, the Broncos get a factory rear spare-tire carrier. If you want a matte or eggshell paint finish on your Old School Series Bronco, you can forget about it—Ward recommends period correct gloss paint only. A factory hardtop and a custom full-length bikini top can be seen in the gallery below.

Ford Fights Back Against Claims It's Killing The Car

  Ford Fights Back Against Claims It's Killing The Car The company says it's "reinventing" the car, not doing away with it. Ford has decided to ditch nearly all of its cars in place of SUVs almost exclusively – only the Mustang and Focus Active will remain. The current Focus will go the way of the dodo later in the month, and the Fiesta and Taurus will follow shortly thereafter. But if you ask CEO Jim Hackett, Ford hasn’t killed off its cars at all. Instead, the blue oval is rethinking the idea of the car entirely.In an interview with Automotive News, Hackett said that "we're simply reinventing the American car," not doing away with it.

The inside looks stock but all the plastic bits have been replaced with billet aluminum or stainless steel knobs and controls. The updated, vintage-like Mustang steering wheel is available in several period correct flavors. Also power steering is standard.

Pricing varies depending on interior options requested, so you can expect to pay over three figures for your Old School Series Bronco. See Icon 4x4 for more details.

Icon 4x4 creates the Old School BR, a Ford Bronco made better .
Offers a more retro look and feel, for less money, than the Icon BR.Icon introduced its Icon BR Bronco in 2011, developed with the help of second-gen Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo and Nike — yes, the shoe company. That truck revamped every aspect of the original Bronco, and it looked like it, with a CNC'd grille, architectural glass, sun visors from a Learjet, and matte or eggshell finish. The Old School BR, conversely, retains the exterior look of the original. It serves buyers who are more taken with the period feel of the Sixties open-top, and who don't want to be questioned at every gas station and stoplight about their awesome ride.
