Singer, Aloe Blacc, is not a newcomer to partnering up with luxury brands. His single “Wake Me Up” plays in the ad campaigns for the headphones, Beats by Dre. Beats are some of the best headphones money can buy, but it appears that Blacc is moving on to even bigger things with his new partnership with Lincoln.
“Lincoln is a classic luxury brand but reinventing itself in a very modern way, which I can relate to right now as an artist going through a transformation with my music,” Blacc stated. Aloe Blacc will be teaming up with Lincoln to make an interactive music video that will play a part in introducing the Lincoln MKZ sedan.
We love Blacc’s music just as much as we love Lincoln vehicles. Make sure you check out his up and coming first full-length album ‘Lift Your Spirit’! And what better way to listen to a great album than by playing it in a new Lincoln vehicle while traveling around town?

Stern Pinball is celebrating 50 years of the Ford Mustang in its own way: by creating three modern versions of a Mustang-themed pinball game. It’s been ages since we at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford have even looked at a pinball machine, but we’re definitely looking forward to playing the new, all-things-Mustang game.
What makes this pinball game so much better than other special edition machines? It features the handiwork of Ford GT designer, Camilo Pardo; and as for how it operates, Stern Pinball’s executive VP for Game Design, George Gomez, said, “You’ll be collecting Mustangs; you’ll be modifying Mustangs; you’ll be racing Mustangs; you’ll be doing all the things that people do with Mustangs.”
We mentioned three versions:
The game’s first version, the pro-level, is intended for arcades and public spaces. The machine is on display at this year’s Chicago Auto Show.
The second version is the premium level. It will include additional art to attract pinball machine collectors.
The third version of the machine is the special edition. This edition is signed and highlights the 50th anniversary with artwork of the 1965 and 2015 Mustangs.
Discounting the pro-level’s price tag at just under $5,000, which version of the Mustang Pinball Game would you choose?
The Kentucky Truck Plant, which builds the F-250 through F-550 versions of Ford’s powerful Super Duty truck, just received an $80 million investment. The investment, which will help create 350 additional jobs at the factory, will mainly support a 15% increase in Super Duty production, an increase made necessary by insatiable customer demand for the popular truck.
“Customer demand for F-Series Super Duty trucks is growing substantially, and F-Series overall is America’s best-selling truck for 37 years running,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “Building on more than 100 years of manufacturing in Kentucky, we are proud to expand our profitable growth in the region as a result of our leadership in trucks and SUVs.”
Here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford, we know firsthand just how popular these Super Duty trucks are, so the increase makes perfect sense to us. Come by Shults soon and take one of these awesome trucks out for a test drive—you’ll easily see why Ford is finding it necessary to increase production on these behemoths.
