How the Baja 1000 helps Ford product development
This year’s edition of the race included a nearly 1,200-mile run through the Baja Mexico peninsula from La Paz to Ensenada. The victories, which came in the stock mid-size and stock full-size classes, underscore Ford’s continued commitment to vehicle development under the most stressful conditions. The technology and know-how from the punishing test will be used to develop consumer models.
