After a robust seven-year production life, the third generation Ford Focus is taking its bow to make way for the redesigned 2019 fourth generation Focus. While the hatchback has already been exposed, this is the first time we've laid eyes on the sedan version. As expected, several design elements from the five-door hatch have made their way over to the sedan like the headlights, taillights and wider platform. Read on for details and pictures.

We here at Stage 3 are all over the 2015 Mustangs, and we've put in our order for a brand spanking new 2015 Mustang with a 2.3L EcoBoost I4! This base EcoBoost Mustang is coming with a 6-speed manual transmission (of course) and a nice and ostentatious Competition Orange paint job that is sure to grab some attention. We opted for the base model EcoBoost car, given that we're going to be throwing everything and the kitchen sink at this car, including a full host of bolt-on performance parts, suspension components, exhaust parts, and whatever else we can find before topping it all off with aggressive custom tuning.
A trip out to the Los Angeles just wouldn't be complete without stopping by ICON Vehicle Dynamics out in Riverside. ICON had invited us out for a tour many moons ago, and we finally squeezed in some time to swing by and get a first-hand look at their assembly and testing facilities. While we've been a little disappointed with some of the backorders and delays for some of the ICON products that we know and love for our beloved F150s, SVT Raptors, and Super Dutys, it's not for lack of trying. ICON's popularity and, by extension, the demand for their awesome and high-quality suspension parts has absolutely exploded over the last year. While there's been a few struggles, ICON is winning the war, and they're churning out suspension hardware at a masterful pace.
With both our 2007 F150 5.4L XLT Project Truck and our 2012 F150 EcoBoost FX4 Project Truck successfully lifted and on off-road tires, we decided to head up to Wickenburg, Arizona to look for some trouble. That trouble was the Box Canyon Trail on the Hassayampa River. While bone dry for the majority of the year, Arizona's monsoon season is in full swing, and the off-road gods blessed us with plenty of standing water, mud, silt, and other fun terrain that we could throw our truck's around in. The 2007 F150 is rocking one of Zone's 6" Suspension Lift Kits and has 20x10" Fuel Lethal wheels with a -24mm offset with Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 35x12.50" tires. The 2012 EcoBoost FX4 likewise has a Zone 6" Suspension Lift Kit and is rolling around on 20x9" Fuel Trophy wheels with a 01mm offset wrapped in 37x12.50" Mickey Thompson ATZ Baja P3s. Needless to say, we had a good time. Make sure to check out all of our photos after the jump!
It seems like whenever we try to take customers somewhere fun and exciting, the weather turns on us. So, things were pretty dour going into our Greasy Spoon Trail run. The good news was that we all had trucks (and a single Jeep JK) that could handle the elements just fine. If anything, the rain, wind, cold, hail, and light snow made our trail run that much more fun. We had about 13 trucks come out for our Trail Day up in Sedona, with roughly 25 people between them all. We had folks come as far as North Carolina to take part in our Greasy Spoon Trail Run, and we all managed to get through it without breaking anything or anyone. We here at Stage 3 give our profound thanks to everyone who made up to Sedona to run the trail with us. You folks are awesome. Moreover, thanks everyone for having excellent trail discipline and not running into each other. That would've been bad. Anyway, here's a few of our images from the run. We'll have a video up sometime in the next week. Enjoy, and thanks again to all who came out!
We know we've been a little lean and stingy on information regarding our Sedona Trail Day on April 26th, but we've finally got everything nailed down and ready to go. Just a little refresher: we here at Stage 3 are hosting a trail run up at Greasy Spoon Trail which is located between Cottonwood and Sedona, Arizona, off of Highway 89. We're giving away goodies, prizes, and providing food over at Picazzo's Pizzaria just outside Sedona proper.
On March 4th, 2004, Stage 3 Motorsports was born. Ten years later, we're doing better than ever and have added a ton of high-performance parts for the vehicles we lovingly serve. It almost goes without saying, but there's no way we could have done it without you, our customers. Because all of you fine folks have shown us such immense love over the years, we're going to show some back on March 4th, 2014, by having a 10% off sale on nearly all of the high-quality performance parts and accessories on our site. We're showing our thanks by letting you save some major cash on almost all of our products for 1987 to 2014 Mustangs, 2004 to 2014 F150s, 2010 to 2014 SVT Raptors, and 1994 to 2014 F250/F350 Super Dutys, letting you grab some awesome performance products for your car or truck while saving a huge chunk of change. It's the least we can do for the people who have helped make Stage 3 Motorsports as great as it is over the years. All you need to do is enter our 10YEARS discount code on checkout to save a ton of money on most of the parts and accessories in our huge arsenal!
We here at Stage 3 Motorsports have been known to actually get out of the office and have some fun. Not that getting you the performance parts and accessories you crave for your car or truck isn't fun, but we do like to change things up a little. Last Friday, all of us here at Stage 3 packed some warm clothes and our toothbrushes and headed up to beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, where there's actually snow, clear skies, and even the color green. We brought both our 2012 F150 5.0L FX4 Project Truck and our fairly "new" 2004 F150 5.4L (with only 165,000 miles) up into the forests and mountains around Flagstaff for a little snow, mud, and off-road fun. Naturally, we brought our camera gear, GoPros, and supporting hardware along to get some of the action down on video and photo. We had an amazing time and just might need to make this into an annual thing. Hit the jump for some teaser images. A video showcasing our trucks will be up shortly.
We've been pretty mum on our plans for Black Friday so far. It's not that we've forgot, we've just been mischievously plotting and planning something (a lot of somethings) that are totally awesome. From Friday, November 29th, 2013, thru Monday, December 2nd, 2013, we here at Stage 3 Motorsports are offering a metric butt-ton of sales and savings on some of the best Mustang Performance Parts and accessories. The list itself is almost as ridiculous as the sales, and you can save a huge chunk of change on a bunch of high-quality hardware. On top of our very own sales, we're running a "MEET AND BEAT" promotion where we'll beat or match any of our competitors' Black Friday or Cyber Monday Sales! Just give us a call with the sale you want us to pummel, and we'll do it with gusto! Anything that another website or retailer is actively promoting is fair game, so keep your phone at the ready to save big!
