The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport and Explorer have both earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards, the highest honor handed out by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These two popular SUVs are among seven Ford vehicles — available now through Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — to have picked up 2022 safety awards from IIHS.
In order to earn the Top Safety Pick, vehicles must earn good scores in six crashworthiness tests: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. A qualifying TSP winner must also earn ratings of advanced or superior in crash prevention, including vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport and Explorer took home the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ because all standard and available headlights earned ratings of acceptable or good. Vehicles with at least one available set of headlights to earn those ratings qualify for the Top Safety Pick.
The 2022 Ford Edge, Escape, F-150 SuperCab, F-150 SuperCrew®, and Mustang Mach-E all earned the 2022 IIHS Top Safety Pick award.
Vaughn Gitting Jr. and Loren Healey were first to cross the finish line in Hammertown in the No. 2567 Bronco 4600. They were followed by Brad and Roger Lovell in the No. 4621 Bronco 4600, who placed second, and Bailey Cole and Jason Scherer finishing third in the No. 13 Bronco 4600.
Ford sweeping the ULTRA4 4600 stock-class couldn’t be timelier for the Bronco. This huge achievement came shortly after Ford revealed the Bronco Raptor, the world’s first ULTRA4-inspired SUV. That beast will also be the most powerful street-legal Bronco ever built, delivering at least 400 horsepower.
As for the beast that won the 2022 King of Hammers, the Ford Bronco 4600 stock-class vehicle features the 2.7-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 and the High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension System. These features are also offered on the new 2022 Ford Bronco, which you can find right here at Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Part of what we love most about representing the Blue Oval at Shults Ford is the brand’s commitment to saving drivers money. One great new example of this ongoing effort is Drive Safe & Save™ Connected Car, a new insurance option for select Ford customers.
Ford teams up with State Farm® to offer usage-based insurance, which means the amount you pay relates directly to how and how much you drive. Eligible connected 2020 model year and newer Ford vehicles can share information with the insurance provider as part of Drive Safe & Save Connected Car. State Farm® will use this data to adjust your insurance premiums, which can result in savings of hundreds of dollars.
“Customers can better manage their car insurance premium because their rate will be more closely associated with their personal driving characteristics,” says State Farm Senior Vice President Property and Casualty Chris Schell. “Drive Safe & Save™ represents a significant auto discount opportunity, including an initial 10 percent participation discount off major coverages. Discounts average between 10 and 15 percent, with even higher discounts possible depending on individual driving behaviors.”
According to Ford, the Drive Safe & Save™ Connected Car program is initially launching in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. But fret not, because it’ll be coming to Pennsylvania sometime very soon.

In late January, a 2022 Ford F-150 Tremor in Iconic Silver rolled imposingly off the line at Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan. That truck marks 40 million F-Series trucks made in the United States—an incredible feat 75 years in the making.
Ford first began building the F-Series in 1947, and it’s been a force to be reckoned with ever since. The new Ford F-150 and Super Duty remain at the top of their respective classes with amazing power, capabilities, and innovations.
And Ford is just getting started. This spring, the all-new, all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning arrives. The first-ever electric Ford truck is the quickest and most powerful F-150 ever built, and it offers amazing range and ground-breaking technologies like Ford Intelligent Backup Power.
It’s now been 45 straight years that the Ford F-Series has reigned supreme as America’s bestselling pickup truck. Unmatched by any other truck in the United States for nearly half a century, the F-Series still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve.
Last year, Ford sold 726,004 F-Series trucks across America. That means that the Ford F-Series outsold the No. 2 truck in the land by 156,616 pickups, giving it a dominant and decisive victory over the field.
And if you’re a fan of the F-Series and looking to upgrade in 2022, there’s never been a better time. Not only do you get the all-new F-150 with class-leading capabilities and advanced technologies, but this year marks the long-awaited debut of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning.
The first-ever all-electric F-150 is perhaps the most impressive truck Ford has made to date. Offering everything from impressive power to long-range potential to leading-edge tech like BlueCruise, the F-150 Lightning has already effectively sold out for 2022. That gives Ford a leg up in making 2022 its 46th straight year as America’s No. 1 truck.
Not to be outdone, 2022 also marks the continued rollout of the awesome new Maverick and the bold Ranger. And where will you find the best trucks that Ford has to offer? Where else but Shults Ford Wexford — your home for all things Ford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
For the fifth time in the past six years, Ford Credit has topped the J.D. Power U.S. Consumer Financing Satisfaction Study. This proves what so many Shults Ford Wexford customers already know — that Ford Credit makes it easy to own that dream vehicle you’ve always wanted.
Ford Credit topped the Customer Satisfaction Index Ranking for mass-market automakers with a total score of 867 out of 1,000. J.D. Power determines that score based on five key factors: account management, application and approval, billing and payment, customer orientation, and customer service experience.
Among those five factors, Ford Credit earned the highest customer satisfaction scores for account management, communication, and billing and payment. Ford also tots the fact that Ford Credit worked to ensure that superior customer satisfaction throughout the pandemic as well as the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage.
“The results show our efforts to improve our digital experiences, including adding flexibility for customers to manage their accounts and make payments, are delivering the ownership experience our customers want,” said Ford Credit Executive Vice President Craig Carrington.
The 2022 Ford Maverick is the first standard hybrid pickup truck in America, and it delivers incredible fuel economy. Final EPA ratings have been revealed, and it puts the Maverick in a class all its own with an amazing 42 mpg in the city.
Ford offers the all-new Maverick with a standard 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle full hybrid engine. Returning 42 mpg in the city as well as 33 mpg on the highway and 37 mpg combined, the Maverick hybrid offers comparable efficiency to sedans that do far less than a Ford truck.
“Our team set out to redefine what a truck could be with Maverick, and we’ve done that with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg city that beats the 2022 Honda Civic 1.5-liter four-cylinder automatic (variable gear ratio) gasoline engine,” said Ford Maverick Chief Engineer Chris Mazur. “At the same time, Maverick offers room for five and plenty of towing and hauling for weekend trips or do-it-yourself projects.”
When equipped with the standard hybrid, the 2022 Ford Maverick offers towing up to 2,000 pounds and 1,500 pounds of maximum payload. You’ll also get the convenience of FLEXBED™, an innovative 4.5-foot bed that’s easily customizable.
The 2022 Ford Maverick has arrived at Shults Ford in Pittsburgh. Visit one of our showrooms and see for yourself why this truck is a game-changer.
 EPA-estimated rating of 42 city/33 hwy/37 combined mpg. Actual mileage will vary.
When it rains, it pours when it comes to Ford and Ford Performance. While the excitement surrounding the all-new Ford Bronco is still at a fever pitch, the Blue Oval is making sure that there’s still plenty to look forward to with its Built Wild™ brand. Ford announced that an all-new Bronco Raptor will debut in 2022, kicking things up yet another level.
Ford hasn’t said much about the Bronco Raptor, but based on the name alone, we can intuit a thing or two. Namely, we can expect the Ford Bronco Raptor debuting in 2022 to offer a more powerful engine and even more off-road-ready equipment.
To give you an idea, the new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor boasts a 450-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 and upgrades like FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, and a revamped suspension with longer springs. So if you thought the 2021 Ford Bronco was an impressive off-road performer — and it is — just imagine what the Bronco Raptor will do.
One interesting thing to note: In announcing the Bronco Raptor, Ford said that it will be “one of the Bronco special edition vehicles that will be available in 2022.” So it sounds like there’s somehow even more to be excited about when it comes to one of the coolest new vehicles to come around in some time.
Since its debut, the Ford Explorer ST has set a new standard for high-performance three-row SUVs. Ford has kept its ear to the ground and listened to its fans, and that’s why the 2022 Explorer ST will be the first to come standard with rear-wheel drive.
“Four-wheel-drive capability is great if you need it, but if you don’t, you shouldn’t have to pay for it,” said Ford Explorer Marketing Manager Lee Newcombe. “These changes to the Explorer lineup were guided by what our customers told us they wanted.”
Ford also understands that some drivers want the bold look of the Explorer ST but don’t need all 400 horsepower that you get from the twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6. To accommodate those customers, the 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line offers the same style of the Ford Performance SUV but equips it instead with the 300-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®.
To keep the ever-popular Explorer ever-fresh, Ford is rolling out a ton of additional updates for 2022. That includes making the 400-horsepower V6 standard for the King Ranch and Platinum, giving you the choice between a second-row bench or captain’s chairs at no additional cost, and adding a pair of new exterior colors — Stone Blue and Burgundy Velvet.
If you’re thinking that the 2022 Ford Explorer ST might just be up your alley, check in with your friends at Shults Ford Wexford. We’ll set you up with a test drive and let you experience this incredible SUV for yourself.
For several years now, Ford has been an integral part of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Ford often brings one-of-one vehicles to the show that are auctioned off for programs supporting up-and-coming aviators. And for the 2021 EAA AirVenture, Ford had a doozy in store: a custom Mustang Mach-E inspired by some of the bravest women ever to have wings.
Ford created a one-of-a-kind 2021 Mustang Mach-E customized in tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots. These women covered 60 million miles during World War II, transporting aircraft to bases around the globe.
As a tribute to the 38 Women Airforce Service Pilots who died in service to their country, the custom Mustang Mach-E auctioned at the 2021 EAA AirVenture bears the No. 38 on the front fascia, rear bumper, and in the cabin. This unique pony also features U.S. Army Airforce Star decals and a distinctive color scheme.
“It was hard not to get a little teary-eyed as we put the finishing touches on this vehicle,” said Kristen Keenan, a designer who helped create the Mustang Mach-E. “I have never worked on a memorial project before. Commemorating this group of women through the vehicle design was an honor.”
This rare Mustang Mach-E went up for auction at AirVenture’s The Gathering, and all proceeds went to help EAA’s goal of expanding aviation industry access for women and youths from underserved communities. Over the years, Ford has helped EAA raise more than $4 million for the cause.
This one-of-one Mustang Mach-E was sold to a lucky individual at this year’s AirVenture, but you can still fly high in your own performance EV. Contact Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to learn how you can get your hands on the all-new Mustang Mach-E.
