Ford Donates $250K to STEM Education in Detroit

Ford Grill | Shults Ford | Wexford, PA

Ford knows that the future of the auto industry is in the hand of a new generation of up-and-coming talent. That’s why it seeks to empower everyone who has the potential to make change a reality. Ford recently donated $250,000 to the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program, which will bring STEM education to 80 underrepresented students.

Ford and DAPCEP are establishing a new Future Forward program that will aid 11th and 12th grade students from Detroit. Those selected for the program can take part in courses, benefit from Ford mentorship, and can even qualify for internships and a pre-college program.

DAPCEP Executive Director Michelle Reaves said that the goal of the partnership is to provide access to STEM education to students from underserved communities.

“According to recent UCLA research, 22 percent of Black students and 29 percent of Latinx students complete a STEM degree within six years. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that the world will need more scientists, engineers, and researchers who represent and support underrepresented communities,” said Reaves.

Ford is committed to the future, and it shows in how it invests in American students and workers. The result will no doubt be continued innovation for years to come, resulting in more game-changing vehicles like the 2021 Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport | Shults Ford | Pittsburgh, PA

The experts at Popular Science know a winner when they see one. That’s exactly what they saw in the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco, set to make its long-awaited arrival at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford in Pittsburgh this summer. The incredible Ford Bronco earned a spot on PopSci’s Best of What’s New 2020 list thanks to, among other things, its standard G.O.A.T. Modes™.

Popular Science calls the Bronco “the truck anyone can off-road,” hinting at its standard 4×4 capability and — of course — Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™. The Bronco comes standard with five different G.O.A.T. Modes™ for various driving situations, while the top-of-the-line Bronco Badlands™ bumps that number to seven. With settings for Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, and Baja, the Bronco Badlands™ is the ultimate off-road SUV for adventure seekers.

But PopSci praised more than this SUV’s off-road prowess: “Even on the street, there’s plenty to appreciate, including doors that come off with just a single bolt and plug, and a manual transmission option for purists.” Add in features like next-gen SYNC® 4 technology and a look that couldn’t be more clearly pulled from Bronco DNA, and you’ve got a winner on multiple levels.

If you’re looking to win 2021, start by reserving your new Ford Bronco at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost™ Hybrid Hits the Mark

2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost™ Hybrid Hits the Mark | Pittsburgh, PA

The all-new 2021 Ford F-150 demonstrates how to do hybrid right with its class-exclusive 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6. To ensure that this innovative powertrain checks the boxes that Ford customers expect, Blue Oval engineers put it through its paces.

“Just because it’s a hybrid doesn’t mean we treated PowerBoost with kid gloves,” said Craig Schmatz, F-150 chief engineer. “To earn Built Ford Tough® certification, PowerBoost went through the torture testing we put all of our powertrains through. No F-150 powertrain gets a pass, we have one standard for quality and durability.”

That means the PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6-equipped F-150 had to undergo the same testing as every other version. Ford makes new F-150 trucks tow trailers through deserts in 100-degree heat, tackle trails to prove their mettle off-road, and endure sub-freezing temperatures to ensure year-round performance.

With the 2021 F-150 PowerBoost™, Ford added a new durability test to make sure the 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery can withstand going over rough, uneven, and jarring terrain. After the equivalent of a decade of driving, the results show that the hybrid version of the F-150 is up to the task.

And boy, is it ever up to the task. The 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost™, available at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford, is truly a best-of-all-worlds truck. It delivers 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque, enabling max towing up to 12,700 pounds. It also offers best-in-class combined fuel economy at 25 mpg and an EPA-estimated range of 750 miles on a single tank. Add to that a class-exclusive Pro Power Onboard built-in generator, and you’ve got a truck that can just about do it all.

You’ll find that tested and proven do-it-all truck right here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Check out our inventory online and schedule your test drive.

Recently, Ford confirmed that consumers are wildly enthusiastic about the new EV, with reservations popping up in all 50 states in the U.S., including plenty right here in Pittsburgh, PA. So what are the most popular colors for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E? Let’s find out.
