Ford Mustang joins the grid of Monopoly Empire tokens

Any true gearhead knows that when it comes to a rousing game of Monopoly, the race car is the most prestigious token. You want the race car, because everything else (aside from possibly the dog) is pretty lame. Who the hell wants to be a thimble?

For the new version of Monopoly Empire – it's basically the normal game, but rather than streets, you can buy up brands – there is no race car. Instead, board game enthusiasts will be fighting over a gold token shaped like the 2016 Ford Mustang. It all has to do with Ford's position as one of the brands that gamers can purchase within the game.

This isn't the first time an automaker has joined the long-running Hasbro game. A few years back, it was Chevrolet that was donating one of its cars for a game token – the then-new Corvette Stingray. While that was cool, we'd be feeling a little miffed if we were Chevy. When it made its debut, it was in Indiana Avenue's red tile. Ford has a more prestigious position, taking the pricier yellow spot that belongs to Ventnor Avenue.

    Ford spins off Smart Mobility subsidiary

    It isn't enough to just be a car company anymore. Our favorite mode of transportation has become so much more than that. In fact, the car has probably always been more than "just a car," but with every generation, it is more so. As technology evolves, the car becomes our office, our lounge, our personal assistant and even our instrument of income. In the same way, car companies are wearing more

    Ford spider screen keeps creepy-crawlies out of cars

    Ford is waging a global war on spiders with the 2016 Focus RS. The little beasties can be a real menace to a vehicle by blocking lines with their dense webs, but engineers at the Blue Oval now have a new screen that they claim keeps the bugs at bay. Yellow sac spiders especially like to craft their webs in fuel vapor lines, but blocking the way can cause pressure to build, leading to a safety
