The 2023 Ford F-150 is coming to Shults Ford later this year, and it’s bringing the awesome new Heritage Edition with it. This new package, available for the XLT, celebrates 75 years of the Ford F-Series by throwing it back to a classic style.
With the 2023 Ford F-150 Heritage Edition, your truck will get a unique two-tone, A-B-A exterior style that evokes the vibe of trucks from the 1970s and 1980s. Heritage Edition models are available in five different color combinations
Antimatter Blue with Carbonized Gray on the top and bottom
Area 51 with Agate Black on the top and bottom
Atlas Blue with Agate Black on the top and bottom
Avalance with Agate Black on the top and bottom
Race Red with Carbonized Gray on the top and bottom
This is just the latest addition to the expanding F-150 lineup. Ford has also revealed a new off-road-ready Rattler trim and the amazing 700-horsepower Raptor R as the newest options coming to the F-150 family for 2023.
When it rains, it pours when it comes to Ford and Ford Performance. While the excitement surrounding the all-new Ford Bronco is still at a fever pitch, the Blue Oval is making sure that there’s still plenty to look forward to with its Built Wild™ brand. Ford announced that an all-new Bronco Raptor will debut in 2022, kicking things up yet another level.
Ford hasn’t said much about the Bronco Raptor, but based on the name alone, we can intuit a thing or two. Namely, we can expect the Ford Bronco Raptor debuting in 2022 to offer a more powerful engine and even more off-road-ready equipment.
To give you an idea, the new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor boasts a 450-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 and upgrades like FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, and a revamped suspension with longer springs. So if you thought the 2021 Ford Bronco was an impressive off-road performer — and it is — just imagine what the Bronco Raptor will do.
One interesting thing to note: In announcing the Bronco Raptor, Ford said that it will be “one of the Bronco special edition vehicles that will be available in 2022.” So it sounds like there’s somehow even more to be excited about when it comes to one of the coolest new vehicles to come around in some time.
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.
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle but have a smaller budget, Ford wants to know if you’d like a truck. But the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick isn’t just any truck. It’s Built Ford Tough®, which means it’s innovative and impressive, and it’s also the only standard hybrid truck on the road today.
Think about how much money you’re spending on gas today for your drives around Pittsburgh. The 2022 Ford Maverick helps you save your hard-earned cash with an incredible 40 mpg in the city.* With its standard 2.5-liter full hybrid engine, the Maverick offers the kind of efficiency you’d expect of a small sedan — only it’s a stylish, capable, and cool pickup truck.
Because it’s a pickup truck from America’s bestselling truckmaker, the 2022 Maverick offers impressive power and capability despite its compact, city-friendly size. With the hybrid engine, the Maverick can tow up to 2,000 pounds and haul up to 1,500 pounds of payload. Equipped with the optional 250-horsepower 2.0-liter EcoBoost® and the 4K Tow Package, you can tow up to 4,000 pounds. And with the EcoBoost®, available all-wheel drive, and the FX4 Off-Road Package, the Maverick becomes a prime pick if you love adventure.
There’s a lot more to love about the Maverick, including its innovative FLEXBED™ with unique storage solutions, a spacious cabin with seating for up to five, and a bevy of technologies like SYNC® 3 and Ford Co-Pilot360™. But maybe the most impressive part? The price you get all of this for, which is under $20,000 MSRP to start.**
*Hybrid (HEV) Driving Range: EPA-estimated range of 500 miles. 40 City mpg/33 Highway mpg/37 Combined mpg. Actual mileage will vary. Range calculation based on 13.8-gallon tank (actual tank size 13.8 gallons), and an EPA-estimated 37 combined MPG.

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.

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.
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.
*Max towing on F-150 XL SuperCrew,® PowerBoost, 4×2 with Max Trailer Tow Pkg. Max towing varies based on cargo, vehicle configuration, accessories and number of passengers.
**Range calculation based on 30.6-gallon tank and EPA-estimated rating of 25 combined mpg. Actual range will vary.
When you visit our showroom at Shults Ford Wexford, you’ll ultimately decide whether you want to lease a vehicle or buy one. Each option comes with a handful of benefits, but there are some common misconceptions about leasing.
Leasing is more expensive
When you lease a vehicle, you actually save money in several ways. Your monthly payments are much lower than when you purchase the same vehicle, since you’re basically paying for the depreciation of the car’s value. You also won’t have to worry about interest or reselling your vehicle.
I have to give the car back when I move
Life happens, and things don’t always go the way you plan. If you have to move — even out of state — that doesn’t mean you have to give up your leased vehicle. Simply notify our dealership about your move so we can adjust our records and the tax rates. However, if you decide to move out of the country, you will have to return the vehicle to the dealership.
Leasing locks you in for the whole contract
The ideal way to lease a vehicle is to lease it for the entire length of the contract. However, as we said before, things don’t always go the way you plan, so it is possible to break your lease. Keep in mind, though, there are still fees involved when breaking your lease.
Sit down with our finance team at Shults Ford Wexford to learn more about our leasing process, and visit our showroom to find the right vehicle for you.
One of the things we love about the Wexford community is our proximity to Pittsburgh, which is never short of fun things to do with your family.
