Ford and Red Bull Deal, PaxPower Jackal: Auto News Headlines

It is official. Ford returns to the Formula 1 arena in 2026, albeit not as a constructor but as a technical partner to leading team Red Bull Racing. Ford will support Red Bull in developing a powertrain in time for the 2026 season, when new, more sustainable powertrain design rules are set to be introduced.

Chevrolet Silverado (and GMC Sierra) owners can turn their light trucks into true rivals of the F-150 Raptor with the help of PaxPower. The Houston, Texas-based company has an upgrade package called the Jackal, and it adds body and suspension upgrades, and if the customer wants it, it does power upgrades on top of that.

Ferrari managed to deliver over 13,000 cars in 2022, which is a new record for the Prancing Horse. What makes the figure even more impressive is that it doesn’t include deliveries of the Purosangue SUV, which could potentially become the brand’s most popular model due to its wider target audience.
