Hard-working Detroit Man Receives New Ford

For ten years, James Robertson has walked 21 miles to and from work. After his story was shared online, an Jameswalkinganonymous fundraiser was created for the hard-working, hard-walking 56-year-old.

The story went viral and in less than a week, more than $300,000 was raised and multiple car dealers offered to give Robertson cars. He finally picked one Friday. Can you guess what it is? A 2015 Ford Taurus!

“The reason I picked the Taurus, I remember the old Taurus from the 1980s,” said Robertson. “They never were this fancy or anything, but like me they have a strong heart from the inside.”

1 Million Shoppers + 1,550 New Jobs = New F150 Sings Success

The redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 aluminum-bodied pickup truck hit a major milestone this week. More than 1 million shoppers have built and priced F-150 configurations on Ford’s Web site, the automaker reported.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe “configurator”  allows shoppers to select packages, colors, accessories and calculate pricing.

“The all-new F-150 is off to a tremendous start,” said Ford in a statement.

Demand for the truck is so great that Ford is adding 1,550 new jobs to its Kansas City Assembly, Dearborn Stamping, Dearborn Diversified and Sterling Axle facilities to meet customer demand for the F-150.

Dearborn Truck and Kansas City Assembly will have the capacity to produce more than 700,000 trucks per year for 90 markets globally, according to the automaker.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn January, F-150 sat just 12 days on dealer lots, turning faster than any Ford vehicle. High-end Platinum and King Ranch F-150 are “turning even faster, averaging just 9 and 10 days on dealer lots, respectively,” Ford said.

The Ford F-Series had its strongest sales month since 2004 in January. F-Series posted sales gains of 17 percent in January, with 54,370 trucks sold last month.

We have four F-150’s in stock and more on the way! Come in for a test drive to see what the hoopla is all about! Or, configure your very own custom F-150 HERE.

Ford F-150 wins North American Truck of the Year!

We can’t say enough about the amazing new Ford F-150…and neither can leaders in the auto industry! Here’s what Autoweek.com had to say about the innovative new truck.

Ford-F-150_2015“Ford’s aluminum F-150 won the North American Truck of the Year award at the Detroit auto show on Monday. The independent jury includes 57 U.S. and Canadian auto writers and editors.

The F-150 beat out the new Chevy Colorado and the Lincoln MKC crossover. Ford received 297 votes, Chevy got 205 and the Lincoln garnered 68.

The new F-150 comes through with four engine choices ranging from the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 to the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. That new 2.7-liter returns an impressive 26 mpg on the highway.”

Special Delivery!

We always get excited when we see the large, tightly covered delivery semi-trucks like this pull up. We all sat 010here wondering what was IN this truck? Was it a new Acura TLX? The new ILX? We knew it had to be special because it was in the covered semi, not the open ones you usually see.

008Finally, after what seemed like HOURS (it was actually only a half hour) we spotted the first shiny glimpse of the beauties emerging from the depths of the trailer. They were 2015 Ford Roush Mustangs!

This is how they come straight off the truck and into the showroom floor. The pictures don’t do these incredible racing cars justice. Come down and take a look (or a test drive!) for yourself.
