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.

Ford Mustang Was World’s Best-Selling Sports Car in 2019

Ford celebrated the 56th anniversary of the world premiere of the original Mustang back in April. During this event, the company announced that the iconic pony car was the world’s best-selling sports car in 2019. That’s five consecutive years of dominance over its competition, consistent with what it’s done for the past five decades plus.

In 2019, Ford sold 102,090 Mustangs around the world, far outstripping other sports cars. Since the sixth-generation model debuted in 2014, Ford has sold an incredible 633,000 total Mustang cars around the globe, establishing it as the global leader in all things excitement.  

Though it’s been the best-selling sports coupe in the United States for the past 50 years, the Mustang isn’t just an icon in America. Europe has also embraced the pony car, as evidenced by last year’s car sales stats. Mustang sales surged 50 percent in Poland and France and 33 percent in Germany. Europe as a whole sold 9,900 units, which is a 3 percent increase from 2018 sales.

The Mustang is likely to continue to top sports car sales, both here and abroad, as the rest of 2020 plays out. And the Mustang family now has more variants to choose from than ever — a total of 12, to be exact. From all-new Shelby GT500 — the most powerful street-legal car Ford has ever made — to all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E, you’ve got no shortage of options if you want to ride with a true legend. No matter which Mustang you pick, you can get it at Shults Ford Wexford. Check out our current inventory online, and if you don’t see your prized pony, call or email and we’ll help you get it.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Gets 760 Horsepower

Imagine being at the top of your game for 55 years and continuing to pull new tricks out of your bag after five decades. Ford has done it again with its iconic pony car, revealing that the new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 gets 760 horsepower. Yes, you read that right: 760 horses.

The new Shelby GT500 will deliver 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful street-legal Ford vehicle ever put to the road. It also means that the supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum alloy V8 is the world’s most power-dense supercharged V8 engine currently in production.

Also offered with the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is a segment-exclusive Tremec® TR-9070 DCT dual-clutch transmission, which offers superior control and quick shifting in all driving scenarios.

“In many ways, this is like having two transmissions in one,” said Pat Morgan, Ford Performance powertrain manager. “On one hand, it enables performance at the outer reaches of straight-line quickness with minimal torque interruption yet provides an incredible amount of finesse and control in track environments for maximum stability and predictability at the limits of lateral acceleration.”

Ford promises that the Shelby GT500 will offer a mid-three-second 0-60 mph time and will be able to go from 0-100-0 in just 10.6 seconds. To achieve this, Ford has equipped the new Shelby GT500 with performance-enhancing equipment such as 16.5-inch two-piece Brembo® rotors and larger Brembo® six-piston calipers, next-gen MagneRide™ suspension, and Ford Performance-spec Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4S tires.

Ford also offers two packages for the Shelby GT500: the Handling Package and the Carbon Fiber Track Package. The former adds a Gurney flap spoiler and strut top mounts. The latter adds Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 tires, 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, adjustable exposed carbon fiber GT4 track wing, and splitter wickers with integrated dive plane.

If you have a need for speed that you want to satisfy, look no further than the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, which should be arriving at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford later this year.

Ford Technology and Performance vs Competitors

Ford technology

You may have heard of Ford’s proudest accomplishment—the F-150 has been America’s best selling truck for 40 years. That accolade is thanks to a standard for continuous improvement and development that isn’t matched in other brand. Ford vehicles beat out competitors like Nissan, Hyundai, and General Motors in more ways than one. The entire Ford lineup is home to some of the best technology and performance on the market.

Some of the best Ford technology is centered around Ford’s SYNC® 3 infotainment system. Available in most of the Ford lineup, the SYNC® 3 system offers hands-free access to tons of important tools and entertainment features using natural voice command control. Access navigation, traffic information, and your favorite smartphone apps using an intuitive interface.

Compared to systems like NissanConnect or Hyundai Blue Link, SYNC® 3 is an effortless and versatile system. Let’s not forget to acknowledge the generous and intelligent safety features offered in each of the Ford vehicles. You won’t find active and passive securities as plentiful or as thoughtful in other vehicles.

Ford also tends to beat out competitors with its performance. Even just the mid-size SUV, the Ford Explorer, can tow up to 5,000 pounds, doing so safely thanks to features like Hill Descent Control™ and Adaptive Cruise Control. Take a closer look at the details of each Ford vehicle and its competitors, and you’ll see that the Ford brand wins nearly every time.
