All-New 2021 Ford F-150 is Best-in-Class for Towing, Payload

All-New 2021 Ford F-150 is Best-in-Class for Towing | Shults Ford

Ford promised that its next-generation F-150 would be the smartest, toughest, and most capable yet. And, oh boy, they weren’t kidding. The 2021 Ford F-150 achieves best-in-class max towing and max payload, putting it atop the pickup truck heap for getting work done.

The all-new F-150 sports an even mightier version of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 that now puts out 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to all that muscle, the 2021 Ford F-150 offers the strength to tow up to 14,000 pounds when properly equipped.* Not only is that better than every other truck out there, including the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra, but it’s also 800 full pounds better than the 2020 F-150. That’s stepping your game up to another level.

Speaking of another level, the 2021 F-150 is on a whole different plateau when it comes to payload. With the legendary 5.0-liter V8, your new F-150 gives you the power to carry a payload up to 3,325 pounds, which is over 1,000 pounds more than the No. 2 truck in the segment. Crushing expectations and crushing the competition — it’s just what the F-150 does.

And the 2021 Ford F-150 offers plenty more that makes it worthy of being your next truck crush. New for the 2021 model, Ford offers gotta-have-it features like SYNC® 4 with over-the-air update capability, an Interior Work Surface perfect for eating lunch between tasks, and a Max Recline Seat that lets you knock off on your break.

This only scratches the surface of what the more capable, more intelligent, and all-around more impressive 2021 Ford F-150 can do. Visit Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh and peep its potential for yourself.

What are the Most Popular Colors for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E?

When Ford unveiled the 2021 Mustang Mach-E — an all-electric crossover reimagining of the legendary muscle car — there was no doubt that it would be a game-changer. 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.

According to the map Ford revealed last month, most Pennsylvanians are taken by the cool, calm hue of Infinite Blue Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. There’s also a high number of reservations for models in Star White Metallic Tri-Coat. If you’re eager to get your hands on one for yourself, you’ll want to be quick — most of the 50,000 Mustang Mach-E SUVs are already spoken for, so don’t delay in contacting Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford.

Outside of our fair state, the Mustang Mach-E is immensely popular in places like like California, Nevada, and Washington, where many drivers opted for the version with an extended-range battery. Meanwhile, the available all-wheel-drive edition is doing particularly well in eastern states like Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, where nine out of 10 buyers opted for AWD.  

All of us here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford are just as excited as you are for the arrival of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E, and can’t wait for you to experience it when it launches later this year. Give us a call or send us an email if you’re interested in learning more.

Is the Ford Mustang Hybrid Getting a V8?

The Ford Mustang is one of the most popular sports cars on the market. As 2020 draws nearer, the Ford Mustang Hybrid will soon make its way to our showroom and countless others across the country. Now, Ford has patented a new system that would fit suspiciously well as the Mustang Hybrid’s new engine.

Ford’s new patent

According to AutoGuide, Ford has patented a new powertrain system. The powertrain is a “twin motor drive system for [a] hybrid vehicle.” In other words, it’s a V8 engine designed to power a hybrid car.

The patent itself doesn’t mention the Ford Mustang Hybrid — or the highly anticipated Ford F-150 Hybrid. However, the timing of this patent fits perfectly with the upcoming release of the Mustang Hybrid, so many are beginning to speculate about any possible connections.

The Mustang Hybrid’s release date

Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of information about the Mustang Hybrid’s release just yet. Many estimate that the model will make it to the 2020 lineup, which would mean we’re right on the cusp of finding out more information. Until then, Ford has most of the details under wraps.

In the meantime, the 2019 Ford F-150 and 2019 Ford Mustang are available at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford. Call us today to schedule your test drive.

New “Built Ford Proud” Campaign

If there’s one thing Ford fans know, it’s that the automaker is famous for being “Ford Tough.” However, Ford has an all-new slogan rolling out with its fresh ad campaign – Ford Proud.

The “Built Ford Proud” ad campaign debuted during the Michigan-Michigan State football game on October 21st. The purpose of the campaign is to focus on a different aspect of Ford – one that many Ford customers may not consider. Shifting from Ford “Tough” to Ford “Proud” focuses on loyalty and family.

Matt Van Dyke, Ford’s director of marketing communications, says the theme is intended to be “one umbrella that brings together” the entire lineup of Ford vehicles, from compact cars to commercial vans. Instead of just focusing on “tough,” which refers to trucks, the word “proud” instead applies to all Ford vehicles.

The ads also highlight one very important aspect of Ford – it’s a family name. Unlike many brands that are the result of mergers, Ford has always been “Ford” since its inception in 1903. One television ad says, “Let the other guys keep dreaming about the future, we’ll be the ones building it” while print ads read, “Born in Detroit. Made in America. Famous Worldwide.”

There’s plenty to be proud of with Ford. Come down to Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford today to explore what Ford Proud can mean to you.

All-New Ford Ranger Radar Makes Towing Simple

When you’re looking for the perfect pickup truck to fit your needs, it’s likely you want one that will make it easy to tow your boat, trailer, or RV. Luckily, that’s where the Ford Ranger comes into the picture. This brand-new addition to the Ford lineup will be going on sale early next year, and it’s set to provide you with some innovative towing technology that’s sure to make life a whole lot easier.

This new Ford Ranger radar technology uses the truck’s class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System to essentially provide you with an extra pair of eyes when you’re behind the wheel. When a trailer is hooked up to your Ford Ranger, cameras near the truck’s taillights help monitor blind spots all the way to the back of the trailer, letting you know when there’s a vehicle in your blind spots.

Furthermore, if you happen to have more than one trailer, the system can save up to three trailer profiles so your truck knows to provide you with warnings whenever another vehicle is driving past you.

When you don’t have a trailer attached to your truck, the Blind Spot Information System will let you know when vehicles are in your blind spots as it normally would. It will also let you know of any obstacles behind you when you’re backing out of a parking spot.

This Ford Ranger radar and Blind Spot Information System come standard on the Ranger XLT and Lariat trim levels. Learn more about the upcoming Ford Ranger and its incredible tech when you speak with our team here at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford.

New Fuel-Efficient Ford Taxis Help Operators Go Green

Ford is making city life much more environmentally friendly. The American automaker has introduced two new fuel-efficient Ford taxis to its commercial vehicle lineup, giving taxi operators the chance to go green.

The first eco-friendly option is for taxi drivers that need a bit more space. The new 2019 Transit Connect Taxi is now available with a 1.5-liter EcoBlue® diesel engine, which has an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway rating.* With seating for up to five and a flexible interior that makes it perfect for taxi-based services, this vehicle is ready to work hard no matter what you need it for.

The second green taxi option is the first-ever Fusion Hybrid Taxi. Similar to the Ford Police Responder Hybrid, this vehicle has heavy-duty chassis parts that will help improve its durability. It has an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 40 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which will help reduce carbon footprints throughout the United States.** It also has heavy-duty cloth seating, vinyl floors, a standard rearview camera, and a mounting plate on top of the dashboard to help you secure your taxi meters and other fleet equipment.

Both of these vehicles are available to order now, though you will have to wait if you want to opt for the diesel engine on the Transit Connect Taxi. To learn more about these eco-friendly Fords, stop by Shults Ford.
