Ford, State Farm® Launch Drive Safe & Save™ Connected Car

Drive Safe & Save™ Connected Car | Wexford, PA

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.

If you’re looking to save money on a new vehicle in Pittsburgh, Shults Ford is a fantastic place to start. We’re the No. 1 Ford dealership in all of Pennsylvania, and we’re proud to serve you the latest and best that Ford has to offer.

40-Millionth Ford F-Series Truck Rolls Off Assembly Line

Ford Super Duty | Pittsburgh, PA

The Ford F-Series rolled into 2022 with a major accolade at its back. By the combined might of the F-150 and Super Duty, the F-Series wrapped 2021 as America’s bestselling truck for an incredible 45th straight year. And weeks into the new year, Ford hit another big milestone when the 40-millionth F-Series truck rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn.

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.

Ready to stake your claim to part of a legacy that’s growing by the day? Check out the great selection of F-Series trucks up for grabs at Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

2022 Ford Explorer ST Gets RWD for the First Time

Ford Explorer ST | Shults Ford Wexford

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.

Ford Auctions Custom Mustang Mach-E at EAA AirVenture

Ford Mustang Mach-E | Shults Ford Wexford| Pittsburgh, PA

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.

For more than 30 years, the Ford Explorer has been the gold standard for rugged, stylish three-row SUVs. The long legacy of America’s bestselling SUV of all time adds another incredible new chapter with the 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline — the most off-road-capable Explorer Ford has ever built.

The 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline is an easy choice if you have a taste for excitement. In addition to a powerful 300-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine, the Explorer Timberline adds a new Torsen® limited-sleep rear differential that directs torque to the wheel with the best grip while minimizing wheelspin.

Adding high-sidewall Bridgestone Dueler P265/65R-18 all-terrain tires with a unique, off-road-optimized tread pattern, the 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline raises the ride height by 0.8 inches for even more confidence going over rough terrain. Helping on that front is the standard Terrain Management System™, which includes Trail and Deep Snow/Sand drive modes.

As if this isn’t enough, the new Ford Explorer Timberline is one of the most unique-looking versions of the rugged three-row ever made. The Explorer Timberline sports a distinct Forged Green Metallic exterior that plays beautifully off the high-gloss painted aluminum wheels and Carbonized Gray grille. Inside, the Explorer Timberline features a Deep Cypress interior with Deep Tangerine contrast stitching on the seats and Stone Mesh and Satin Silver Twilight details on the dash.

Ready for adventure? So is the 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline. You’ll find it at Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh — your No.1 dealer for all things Ford in Pennsylvania.

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.

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.
