Ford’s light is shining bright

Ford Edge

Ford Edge on display at the NADA convention.

Recently I had the privilege of attending the National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA) convention in San Francisco, CA.  I am extremely excited at how bright Ford’s light is shining.

The all new 2015 Ford Edge is just fantastic looking.  I cannot wait for the vehicle to hit our showroom in the upcoming months.   We have a new, redesigned Focus that really looks sharp.   I attended a meeting with the top brass at Ford Motor Company and the outlook for 2015 is extremely positive.

Overall, the mood in the automobile industry is very good and 2015 should reflect a big year, with industry sales forecast estimates at over 17 million sales in 2015.Marc_mustang

As you can see in the pictures, the GT350 is as impressive a sports car I have ever seen.   We are proud that Ford has continued our F-150 dominance over Chevrolet by winning the top selling American vehicle for 38 years running!!!

We at the dealership encourage our customers to  experience why we are different from the competition.  With car washes for life, (2) years free maintenance, a 72 hour best value guarantee and free alignments, along with an amazing team; we offer the best value for your hard earned dollars.

I sincerely appreciate all of our customer and employees and it is an honor and privilege to be part of an outstanding organization and fastest growing Ford dealership in Southern Maryland.

America’s Truck – Ford F-150

Consistency is everything, and for the past 38 years the Ford F-150 has been crowned America’s Best Selling TruckIn fact, for the last 32 years the Ford F-150 has been America’s Best Selling Vehicle! Which is why we’re going to show how the 2015 F-150 took the podium this year.

How did Ford do it this year? Aluminum. The last 2014 model F-150 rolled off the production line in late August last year, and the company raced to removed and replace the factory equipment with the new aluminum tools in a matter of 8 weeks. The product? A lighter, stronger, and more capable truck that will revolutionize the truck industry

Ford‘s strategy was to create a more fuel-efficient, towing capable, and load hauling machine to not only meet government fuel regulations but to give its owners more truck. By shedding 770 lbs the new 2015 F-150 increases its fuel economy by 5% when you’re comparing the 2014 F-150 4WD FFV with the 3.7L V6 to the 2015 F-150 4WD FFV with the 3.5L V6. A lighter truck allows Ford to replace the engine with a smaller one and keep the performance. Now don’t worry truck guys you’re not getting cheated out of anything because with 770 lbs. off the truck load you’re able to haul more and tow more! The smaller V6 is driving at V8 ratings so all of your truck is there, and then some.

The award at the Detroit Auto Show has definitely increased the buzz on the new F-150 even though these last few months customers have been calling and emailing non-stop asking when they’ll be here. Well, they’re here so stop by and see for yourself!
