The real F-35 Lightning II fighter jet may be grounded, but the Ford Mustang version is just taking off.

As it does every year, Ford has created a special paint job for a Mustang to be auctioned off at the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual gathering at Oshkosh, Wis. They are always painted to match a famous military aircraft, present or past. Proceeds from the auction of the car go to support a program that offers introductory flights for teenagers in hopes it will foster an interest in aviation.

Chrysler has reportedly confirmed that its new seven-seat crossover is on track to launch in 2017. The model is said to be built upon a V6-powered front-wheel-drive platform, with all-wheel drive available as an optional upgrade. The company aims to share the platform across other vehicles, suggesting it will also underpin the next-generation minivan.

The Dodge Durango technically accommodates seven passengers, however the company views the SUV interior as too small and the exterior styling as too aggressive for many customers, Chrysler brand CEO Al Gardner told Motor Trend.

General Motors has become the first major automaker to sell vehicles with wireless Internet access, but consumers want to know how well it will work.

Phil Abram, GM chief infotainment officer, said Wednesday the automaker conducted extensive testing with service provider AT&T to ensure the new 4G LTE-equipped vehicles work seamlessly.

“This is not a science project for General Motors,” Abram said. “The breadth in which we are doing this … is a recognition that this connectivity is a universal need.”
