Ford Bronco Sweeps 2022 King of Hammers

Ford Bronco | Pittsburgh, PA

The Ford Bronco is back, and it’s better and badder than ever. Need more proof? The Bronco 4600 stock vehicle scored a 1-2-3 finish earlier this year at the 2022 King of Hammers.

Vaughn Gitting Jr. and Loren Healey were first to cross the finish line in Hammertown in the No. 2567 Bronco 4600. They were followed by Brad and Roger Lovell in the No. 4621 Bronco 4600, who placed second, and Bailey Cole and Jason Scherer finishing third in the No. 13 Bronco 4600.

Ford sweeping the ULTRA4 4600 stock-class couldn’t be timelier for the Bronco. This huge achievement came shortly after Ford revealed the Bronco Raptor, the world’s first ULTRA4-inspired SUV. That beast will also be the most powerful street-legal Bronco ever built, delivering at least 400 horsepower.

As for the beast that won the 2022 King of Hammers, the Ford Bronco 4600 stock-class vehicle features the 2.7-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 and the High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension System. These features are also offered on the new 2022 Ford Bronco, which you can find right here at Shults Ford Wexford in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Three Myths About Leasing a Car

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.

The Best Places for Sledding in Pittsburgh

Winter may bring high heating bills and icy roads, but the season isn’t all bad. Sledding is a favorite winter pastime the whole family can enjoy. So pack a sled or two into your Ford SUV or truck and head out to one of these best places for sledding in Pittsburgh.

Blueberry Hill Park and Knob Hill Park

Let’s start in our own suburb of Wexford, Pennsylvania. Two great spots include Blueberry Hill Park, which is off of I-79 and I-279 North, and Knob Hill Park. Blueberry Hill Park has its own designated sledding area—that’s how great it is.

South Park

Sunny Slopes in Pittsburgh is a perfect spot for sledding, whether cloudy or sunny. The area includes three hills, one of which boasts a 1,000-foot-long slope for optimal sledding speed. Of course, all that fun on the way down means a long trek back up for the next go.

Chapel Hill

Head to Chatham University for a sledding legend: Chapel Hill. The slope starts at the Chatham Memorial Chapel and is not too often frequented, making it a great spot for family fun.

Flagstaff Hill

Flagstaff Hill is among the most popular sledding hills in Pittsburgh. In fact, it’s a great spot for tobogganing, mild snowboarding, and a good old-fashioned snowball fight. The spot is near Phipps Conservatory.

We here at Shults Ford Wexford encourage you and your family to enjoy the winter season and all the snow-based fun it delivers.

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.
