2017 Ford Escape and Fusion Will Offer A Better Listening Experience - 08/25/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––Whether it's the static on the radio, the road noise, or simply low-quality speakers in your car, it's annoying and it can really downgrade your overall driving experience. If you've ever been driving through a downtown or mountainous area and your radio all the sudden cuts out, you might want to listen up (pun intended) to what Ford has to say. The 2017 Ford Escape and Fusion will offer a better listening experience with improved radio reception, better quality audio, and improved cabin acoustics.

2017 Ford Escape and Fusion Will Offer A Better Listening Experience
It doesn't matter if you're listening to an audiobook, a metal music album, or your favorite FM station, your sound quality is important to you. Because driving requires full attention on the road, we lean towards audio stimulation for entertainment. In fact, 93% of Americans listen to the radio weekly, which is more so than smart phones or TV. Thanks to Ford, and their wonderful habit of innovating for customer satisfaction, the 2017 Ford Escape and 2017 Ford Fusion will come available with the following items:

-An industry first dual reception radio system for HD radio
-Digital audio bus technology
-Sony audio systems
-Acoustic laminated glass (in the Fusion)

The dual reception radio system includes a two receivers, one of which is on the rear-window heater grid. Having two receivers helps eliminate or reduce interference, because the frequency is received twice. This technology is especially helpful in cities and certain landscapes, like the mountains, which are notorious for bouncing radio signals. It's also helpful because the secondary receiver will determine which FM radio signal is the strongest, or most reliable, and will switch to whichever signal that is.
2017 Ford Escape and Fusion Will Offer A Better Listening Experience

 2017 Ford Escape and Fusion Will Offer A Better Listening Experience


Digital audio bus technology delivers high-fidelity sound. The acoustic laminated glass, available in the Fusion, comes together with the digital audio bus technology to create a smooth sound by blocking road noise. The 2017 Ford Fusion with acoustic laminated glass provides more cabin quietness than the 2016 Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The number of speakers on the Fusion Hybrid S and Hybrid SE are increasing from six to nine. The Hybrid and Energi models include the Active Noise Control feature which sends out sound waves that cancel out sounds like engine and wind noise.

“These changes are the result of listening to feedback from dozens of listeners over hundreds of hours,” said Alan Norton, senior technical leader for Ford audio systems. “It’s all about attention to detail. By improving radio reception and taking other steps to improve sound quality and acoustics, we aim to give customers the consistent, enjoyable sound they deserve. In many cases, the best audio systems our customers have are in their vehicles. We don’t want them to settle for low sound quality.”

Ford is all about innovation and bringing higher-quality products and feature offerings to their customers. Whether it be a new sedan, the 2017 Ford Fusion, or a AWD capable crossover, the 2017 Ford Escape, there's a perfect Ford vehicle out there for you. At North Brothers Ford we can help you find the perfect vehicle, with quality audio-centric entertainment options through Ford SYNC, for your needs and budget. You can conveniently schedule a test-drive online on any of our vehicles.

Not sure whether you should buy or lease? We've developed a Buying vs. Leasing comparison guide plus a detailed break-down of the process on each option that you can check out on our How to Buy and How to Lease pages. If you already have a vehicle and want to keep it looking and running its best, make sure to check out our comprehensive Dashboard Warning Light Guide Routine Maintenance and Seasonal Maintenance pages on our website for tips and information.

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School - 08/22/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––The backpacks, school supplies, and clothes are taking heavy reign in stores, which means it's back-to-school. For children it might mean the end of a fun summer, whereas for adults it means a new schedule to adopt and extra effort to make everything go smoothly. You can buy all the supplies and start putting the kids to bed earlier, but what else can you do to get ready? We've got some tips on how to get ready for back-to-school that'll make the transition into the new school year a breeze for both you and the little ones!


1. Start eating meals around your future school schedule. 

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School

While it seems silly to start this ahead of time, it'll help your body adjust as a whole. This will especially help kids get into a good morning habit of eating breakfast, and doing it on time, so they're not eating on the run. It'll also help their tummies adjust to a different schedule so they're not gurgling out of hunger in the middle of class. You can take it one step further by creating a meal plan for the first week, or prepping with some freezer meals that'll make dinner easier!


2. Start a new sleep schedule two weeks prior to the start of school. 

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School

Did you know there's good and bad times to wakeup based on when you fall asleep? Your body sleeps in stages, and waking up in a deep-sleep stage can set the mood of tiredness for the rest of the day. To help your kids be the most focused in class, start a new sleep schedule based on the chart above as soon as possible so they're ready to roll when school starts back up. You can find a way to do this yourself by using this sleep calculator.



3. Review pick-up and drop-off procedures for before and after school. 

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School

Even if it's the same as last year, review when you'll leave the house in the morning, when you'll drop them off at school, and when you'll pick them up at the end of the day. If you're not the driver, make sure you have the correct bus or carpool schedule, and review with your student. Get them as familiar as possible with the schedule so there's no running after the bus in the morning, and so you can rest easy.



4. Talk to your student regarding their feelings of going back-to-school.

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School

You might remember your feelings about going back to school, or going for the first time. Were you anxious? nervous? excited? Making a note to talk about your kids about going to school and their feelings about doing so may make the process easier. It'll give you insight on what steps to take. If you have a nervous student, you can take extra time to prepare their day with them, or help find them an activity or group to join that'll help them have fun and relax with their peers. Simply talking to your student will help them get in the mindset, and allow them to ask questions or for help if they need it.



5. Schedule times for doing homework and physical activities.

How to Get Ready for Back-to-School


Physical activities must be done just as much as homework. There should be a fine balance of these things throughout your child's day. You can help by establishing a time and place homework should be done, preferably when you're available for help. You can also help to establish a time for physical activity by getting your student involved in extracurricular sports or even neighborhood groups. Setting a time for these things will allow your student to not feel limited to one or the other and will help them learn time management.


No matter where your kids are headed this year, we hope these tips on how to get ready for back-to-school will help your entire family be prepared for the transition. If your students won't be using the bus to get to school, you'll want to make sure you have a safe and entertaining ride for getting to and from school! This could mean taking care of routine maintenance like with filters and fluids so your family is always safe on the road, reviewing our Dashboard Warning Light Guide so you're prepared for any situation, or it could mean taking a second look at your Ford SYNC to see what it can do to make your mornings a little better! It might even mean you need a new or certified pre-owned car. We'll help you and your family find just what you need at your budget. If it's service you need, we can help with that too. Make sure to check out our coupons page to see how you can save.

The Ford Fiesta is One of KBB's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars - 08/19/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––The Ford Fiesta is a great compact car for a number of reasons including it's fuel economy, fun attitude, and safety. It's an especially great car for students heading back to school this season. The Ford Fiesta is one of KBB's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2016. Although it's a great award, the Fiesta is no stranger to the list, as it also made the top 10 last year.

The Ford Fiesta is One of KBB's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars


Kelley Blue Book picked the top 10 Best Back-to-School Cars based on a few factors they consider important to our youth and future leaders. Affordability, practicality, and safety were extremely high factors in deciding which vehicles would make the list. The Ford Fiesta was listed as a KBB 10 Coolest Cars Under $18k again this year, so deciding it met the affordability factor was no stretch.

"The kids involved prefer to have a car they’re happy to be seen in, which suggests style is part of the equation too. Ford Fiesta addresses all of these wants, with an array of features returning students are sure to appreciate.” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.

The 2016 Ford Fiesta, though small, be but mighty in style! The Fiesta comes available in a sedan or hatchback style with bold and smooth Ford styling. The interior is comfortable and includes technology, like the newest version of Ford SYNC, a young driver would want, lending to the overall style. 

While there were many factors kids considered important, safety was the most considered and highest rated factor by KBB and parents alike. No matter how long your young driver has been behind the wheel, you still want the most advanced safety features included in their vehicle. The 2016 Ford Fiesta comes with a total of seven airbags and plenty of driver assist technologies like blind spot mirrors, AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, and more. 

The Ford Fiesta is one of KBB's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars, and one of KBB's 10 Coolest Cars Under $18k, which means it's one of the best new Ford vehicles you can get for your student! If you'd like to test drive one yourself, or want to bring your student in to get behind the wheel, stop by North Brothers Ford.

We'll help you get prepared for the back-to-school season with new vehicles, used vehicles, and a wealth of knowledge to keep you safe on the road. Make sure to check out our Dashboard Warning Light Guide with your student before sending them on their way, and complete seasonal maintenance so they're safe on the road wherever life takes them.

How to Check Your Brakes During Brake Safety Awareness Month - 08/09/2016

How to Check Your Brakes During Brake Safety Awareness Month


WESTLAND, Mich.––This August is dedicated to brake safety. While they may not always be on your routine maintenance schedule, they should be! Your brakes may only need to be replaced every once and a while, depending on your driving style and frequency of use, but they can be easily inspected to ensure your safety on the road. There are also signs you can look out for in the case your brakes have a problem or need replacing. Below we'll tell you how to check your brakes during Brake Safety Awareness Month because we care about your safety on the road!

First off, let's go over how brakes work! Although it may seem simple, it's a system made of many parts and has the big job of stopping or slowing down your moving car. Your brakes use hydraulic pressure so a simple press of your brake pedal can be transferred into pressure on the brake rotors. Check out the video below for a visual example of brakes in action.



Now we'll go over some signs you may be having brake issues:

-You hear squealing or grinding while braking. If you hear grinding, don't wait any longer for a service appointment because your brakes are too worn and won't be able to effectively stop the car. A squealing noise may not need immediate service, but will need attention soon. Your brakes are designed to make that noise to indicate that the pads need changing.

-Your brakes feel soft when you press. Are your brakes taking more pressure to stop? Or does the brake feel 'soft' or 'spongy'? This could mean your brake fluid needs replacing. You'll want to get your car into our Service Center as soon as possible!

-Your dashboard brake warning light is on. Even if you don't feel or hear anything strange when applying your brakes, you'll still need to have them inspected. The sensor on your brake detected something in order to make the light turn on. Check out our new Dashboard Warning Light Guide for a full run down of all your dash lights, what they mean, and what to do when one lights up.

-Your steering wheel shakes when you brake. This could mean you have warped brake rotors. The uneven surface of the rotors is what causes the shaking when you brake. If the shaking is intense enough to disrupt your driving, it's time to schedule a service appointment as soon as possible. Your brake rotors will need to be replaced eventually, so it's a good idea to have them inspected even if the shaking is minimal.

-Your brakes are visibly shedding metallic flakes. This is a clear sign your brakes are wearing quickly. If you see flakes near your brakes, have them inspected to ensure your brakes structural integrity on the road.

Testing your brakes is as simple as using them and paying attention! You can otherwise check with your eyes. Most vehicles allow you to see the brake pad through the wheel. If the brake pad looks too thin, think less than .25", then it most likely needs replacement. Some brake pads have a wear indicator slot in the middle. If the slot looks like it's not there, then it most likely needs replacement. If you need help checking your brakes or would like a more thorough inspection, we'd be happy to do so at your next oil change at North Brothers!

We want to ensure you have a reliable vehicle that can get you from point A to point B without compromising your safety. This all depends on the routine maintenance you do on your vehicle, and we're here to help make that happen. We'll not only show you how to check your brakes during Brake Safety Awareness Month, but also provide you help on everything else. We regularly update our website with helpful information and tips about routine and seasonal maintenance. Plus, you can schedule your service appointment online, so your entire routine maintenance experience is easy. We're always here to help and answer any questions you might have regarding brake service or any other auto service you might need. Don't forget to check our coupons page for ways to help you save on auto service at North Brothers.

A Comprehensive Dashboard Light Guide Courtesy of North Brothers Ford


Vehicle Performance Light Meanings & What To Do

5 Tips for Washing Your Car At Home - 07/29/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.–– Everyone loves a good carwash from the sky. Yes, we park outside when it's going to rain too. But sometimes rain just simply doesn't happen. Unfortunately, Michigan has been dry this summer, so you'll have to resort to the car wash or to doing it yourself at home. Getting the shine that you want isn't terribly difficult if you've got the right tools and tips. Use our 5 tips for washing your car at home for the cleanest and shiniest ride on the block.

5 Tips for Washing Your Car At Home


1. Use specialized car cleaner soap. Other soaps like dish detergent are too rough for your vehicle’s paint. 


2. Microfiber rags, soft sponges, and soft plastic bristle brushes get the job done removing dirt without scratching the surface of your vehicle. Dryer sheets work well to remove bugs on your grill. 


3. Rinse your tools well, and switch out the bucket water frequently to avoid washing with old grit.


4. Rinse and wash one side at a time so you can rinse before the soap dries, in the warm sun. Try to rinse the undercarriage as well, this will help get rid of any liquid or dirt that could potentially cause rusting.


5. Take time to wax your car. It may seem time consuming, but it’s worth the paint protection it provides, helping to keep dirt and grime from scratching your vehicle, while also providing UV ray protection. Make sure to do this in the shade or during cooler hours of the day


Your vehicle is what gives you freedom, and gets you where you need and want to be. It's a big investment, which is why we want to help you protect and maintain it with our 5 tips for washing your car at home. We want you to enjoy it for however long you have it, and help keep its value with car care and routine maintenance! In fact, we're constantly updating our website with information to help you out with anything from car buying and leasing, to Ford SYNC technology information, to fluids and filter vehicle maintenance at North Brothers Ford. 

If you're in need of any auto service, you can conveniently schedule your appointment check-in time online or by giving us a call. We have a well equipped Service Center and Collision Center, able to take care of anything you need on any make and model. We also offer service coupons you can take advantage of to save a little bit of cash!

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Comes Standard with Adaptive Cruise Control - 07/11/2016

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Comes Standard with Adaptive Cruise Control


WESTLAND, Mich.––If towing your boat, RV, trailer, etc. seems like a chore, the new Ford F-Series Super Duty is about to change your entire outlook. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty comes standard with adaptive cruise control able to handle a tow of 31,500 pounds or more! Imagine for a moment, with the touch of a few buttons that you would be able to drive with cruise control down an open road, rolling hills, and even flowing traffic, without putting your foot on either pedal. Now imagine doing that with a large tow? Sound pretty amazing? It is. Let's go over the details.


Thanks to the adaptive cruise control your 2017 Super Duty will be able to automatically speed up and slow down to keep pace in any traffic condition. The incredible F-Series Super Duty also comes with adaptive steering and Blind Spot Information System and trailer coverage. These technologies are a class exclusive available to pickup truck drivers for the first time. The Series actually comes with a giant list of driver assist features that any driver would love including:

-Adaptive cruise control
-Adaptive steerings
-Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage
-Trailer Reverse Guidance
-Trailer tire pressure monitoring system
-Utility LED lighting system
-BoxLink with premium locking cleats
-Customer-placed trailer camera (Factory-installed)
-PowerScope power-telescoping and power-folding trailer tow mirrors
-SYNC 3 

The adaptive cruise control, able to tow over 31,500 pounds, is the newest and most convenient driver assist feature included in all 2017 F-Series trucks. But how does it work? First you'll set the speed like you would with regular cruise control, then set a comfortable driving distance that lets the truck know how far to stay behind the vehicle in front of you. The truck uses a radar to sense the distance and speed of the vehicle ahead to then slow down or speed up accordingly. The feature will maintain the preset distance and speed above 20 mph until you turn the feature off.

Towing is serious business and drivers of the F-Series will have confidence in Ford's latest technology to make towing much easier. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty comes standard with adaptive cruise control, although it is optional on the King Ranch, Lariat, and Platinum Super Duty pickups including the F-450. The 2017 F-Series will be available late this year, and built right in the U.S. If you'd like to check out all the stunning options Ford has to offer for your towing needs before the release of the adaptive cruise enabled F-Series, you can stop by our Ford dealership in Westland! Whether it's a new truck, or a more efficient smaller vehicle that you're looking for, we'd love to help you find it.

We'd also love to help you maintain your current vehicle to ensure it runs its best for years to come. We provide seasonal maintenance advice and tips on our website. This season is all about Summer Car Care. You can read up on tips to best maintain your fuel system, cooling system, and  exterior lights. We also have pages that outline how to keep your car cool during the summer, and why summer is the best time to take care of cosmetic repairs. Keep in mind you can conveniently schedule an auto service or collision repair service on our website to save time.

North Brothers Ford is located at 33300 Ford Rd Westland, MI 48185 and proudly serves as one of the premier dealerships in Metro Detroit, and is committed to exceptional customer service! Stop by or give us a call at 888-806-7163, our knowledgeable and helpful sales team will be more than happy to assist you!

How to Keep Your Furry Friend Cool This Summer - 07/08/2016


WESTLAND, Mich.––Our furry friends are as much a part of our families as a brother or sister. We care for them the best we can and go out of our way to protect them from harm. Sometimes, there are unforseen dangers that can be avoided with awareness and a little extra care. Take summer for instance. While summer is a fun time for all of us, it can often be a burden to an animal who doesn't have a voice to speak up when they're uncomfortable. We know you care for your pet, so take some extra steps to help them be their happiest! We've come up with some tips on how to keep your furry friend cool this summer that you can implement now.


1. Reschedule Your Walks or Outdoor Time

If your schedule allows for it, try to walk your pet during the early morning hours or late evening hours when the temperature drops. It's a simple switch that'll help your pet stay more comfortable during exercise, especially since they don't have the ability to cool down as quick as we do. If you're a runner, we recommend leaving your pet at home as it can cause your pet to become excessively hot in the summer weather. If your dog is a swimmer, this can help them cool off, so go for it! Fun fact: dogs actually sweat out of their paw pads and use panting as a way to regulate temperature!



2. Don't Give Them a Haircut

While you may be thinking "less hair, less heat", giving your pet a haircut is counter-intuitive to keeping them cool! Think of your pets coat as insulation. The insulation keeps them from getting too cold in the winter, but it also stops heat from coming in during the warmer months. Your pets have natural body functions that can help them cool down, so cutting their fur can actually hurt their ability to do so. If your pet is outdoors, their hair will also hide their skin from the sun. Just like us, their skin needs UV protection, too. DO brush them regularly as this will allow for better air flow in their fur.



3. Always Keep Fresh Water Available

This tip is a no-brainer for some, but it's worthy of mentioning! For any of your pets, it's important to have the essentials ready for them when they want it. While they can whine and meow, they don't have a voice to say what exactly is wrong. Hydration is key to keeping their bodies functioning normally, even in hot weather. Make sure fresh water is available in multiple spots for their convenience, and never take them outdoors with them without a bowl and water. You can find collapsible bowls and travel water bottles that are more convenient to tote around when you're outside.


4. Be Aware of Signs Your Pet is Having Heatstroke

Your pet may look hot and may be panting like crazy, but how do you know if they're having heatstroke? The signs of heatstroke include: heavy panting, glazed eyes, lethargy, difficulty breathing, vomiting, seizure, lack of coordination, rapid heart beat, excessive thirst, red or purple tongue, dizziness, profuse salivation, and unconsciousness. Pets who are more at risk are very young, very old, overweight, or not used to regular exercise. Pets that are more highly at risk have short muzzles or snouts like pugs, shih tzus, french bulldogs, boxers, etc. from which they cannot breath as well. Moving your pet to a shaded area or air conditioned space, applying cold towels or ice packs to the head and neck, and even wetting the fur can help a pet cool down; however, if your pet is really having heatstroke, get to the vet right away!


5. Give Them Special Treats

You may have heard the myth that giving a dog ice when they're hot can seriously harm them, but it is not true. Lots of pets love ice cubes and cool treats, and summertime is the perfect season to enjoy them. You can put ice cubes in their water bowl, freeze treats in water or chicken broth, make your own frozen dog treats, or even invest in toys that can be put in the freezer. Be aware that aggressive chewers can risk damaging their teeth on frozen treats. If you're worried your pet is having heatstroke, don't waste time trying to get them a drink or ice cube to cool them down, get them to a vet or emergency clinic immediately.


We care about our furry friends and want you to help them be the best they can be! With these tips on how to keep your furry friend cool this summer, you can enjoy the season together. We want to not only help you keep your pets cool, but also your car! When your pets do travel with you, you'll want to ensure your AC and Cooling system are up to date for a chilled ride they can be comfortable in. Make sure to check out all our Summer Car Care pages for tips on how to maintain your vehicle and keep it cool and protected in the sun.

If you need a new or used vehicle that better suits your and your pets lifestyle, we'll help you find one at North Brothers! We have plenty of awesome options with lots of space, especially within the current Ford model lineup, but also in our used and certified pre-owned inventory. We recommend checking out the new 2016 Ford Flex which has tons of cargo space and performance capability.

Summer Car Care and Tire Safety at North Brothers Ford - 06/22/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.–– Summer car care is comprised of routine maintenance, inspections, and service to components including: your vehicle's A/C, Cooling, and Fuel systems. While these things are all important to have done, one of the most important components you need to continually care for is your tires! Summer car care and tire safety at North Brothers Ford is easy with our coupons, deals, and excellent, transparent auto service. Let's talk about why your tires are so important during the summer, and how to get the best deal on tires and tire services!

Your tires connect your car to the road, they carry you from place to place, and they do a lot of work in terms of keeping you safe on the road. In the summer it's easy for us to relax and forget about the troubles of everyday life, but forgetting about your tires is one mistake you shouldn't make! All the extra time on the road for vacations and road trips, plus the hot pavement and potential for rainy weather, equals the need to make your tire maintenance a priority.

Summer Car Care and Tire Safety at North Brothers Ford


So what do you need to do for your tires in order to stay safe on the road, make your tires last longer, and get the best fuel economy?


INFLATE

Your tires require a certain level of inflation for everyday driving. Inflating to the recommended level of air pressure can help you achieve the best fuel economy. Under inflated tires can make your car work harder to move which means it's using more fuel, while over inflated tires run the risk of severe damage like popping, especially with high-speed driving and heat. Also making sure to respect your cars weight capacity can help eliminate the possibility of your tire being damaged.


INSPECT

Your tires require a certain level of tread to be able to effectively stop on any road condition, so letting your tires go bald before having them changed is a bad idea. You can check your tread by using the penny method, or stop by our dealership to use our tread spec machine. All you need to do is simply drive over the machine and we'll go over the results with you which detail each tires tread pattern and level. It's also important to check for any damage or visual abnormalities to your tires like bulges, cracking, and object punctures.

Summer Car Care and Tire Safety at North Brothers Ford


ROTATE

We're adamant about the importance of having enough tread on your tires, and rotating your tires plays a big part in that. Because of the way your car distributes weight and drives can effect the tread wear of each tire. Rotating your tires regularly will ensure each tire is experiencing the same amount of wear. In turn, this will help extend the life of your tires. If you have one tire with much lower tread than the next, your car will have trouble compensating for the difference and will need to work harder to move. Your tire alignment can also affect this, so checking alignment each time your tires are rotated can help your car move more efficiently.

How do you save money on tires? Regular maintenance helps extend the life of your tires so you'll need to change them less, but when you do, North Brothers Ford has you covered! We've not only got coupons available for use on your next set of tires, but also the best technology to make sure you're truly safe on the road.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Comes With the Most Capable Tires Yet - 06/16/2016

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Comes With the Most Capable Tires Yet

WESTLAND, Mich.–– The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has already proven to be one of the most capable products in Ford's lineup with its list of amazing new features. This new Raptor truck will take you from the road to the sandy desert to the rockiest terrain and back. Earlier this year Ford released a very close to stock 2017 Raptor to race in the Best in the Desert off-road series in the new factory stock class to show just what this truck can do. There's just one more stock feature unique to this truck that makes it one step ahead of its competition. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comes with the most capable tires yet, the BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A KO2 tires.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Comes With the Most Capable Tires Yet

This special set of tires were used with the Best in the Desert 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The all-terrain tires were developed in-line with the trucks chassis meant to make the ride more comfortable and to improve on and off road performance. The T/A KO2 tires feature a racing cut with a "chip-and-tear-resistant" tread compound. The Ford and BFGoodrich engineers who worked on these tires went through a dozen versions before they decided on the final to match the performance of the Raptor.

The tires were put through hundreds of hours of simulations to see how they would react in real life situations. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comes with an all-new terrain management system which includes six driving modes including: Normal for everyday driving, Weather mode for snow/rain/ice, Mud and Sand mode for trails and terrain, Baja mode for desert running, Street mode for performance on-road driving, and Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling.



Ford is all about innovation and offering its customers best performance options through specialized stock parts. In fact, Ford is working with Michelin to make tires for its entire performance lineup including the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, Ford Focus RS, and the Ford GT supercar. Not only does Ford focus on the feature offerings for its performance lineup but its regular and fleet lineups too to make its customers lives more convenient. Whether you want something that can take you off-road like the Ford F-150 Raptor or an everyday vehicle with capability and space like the Ford Escape, Ford's got it. 

At North Brothers Ford we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your needs and budget. You can conveniently schedule a test-drive online on any of our vehicles. Not sure whether you should buy or lease? We've developed a Buying vs. Leasing comparison guide plus a detailed break-down of the process on each option that you can check out on our How to Buy and How to Lease pages. If you already have a vehicle and want to keep it looking and running its best, make sure to check out our Routine Maintenance and Seasonal Maintenance pages on our website for tips and information.

A/C and Cooling Systems: 

Two of the most important systems that your car will utilize this summer are your vehicle's A/C and Cooling Systems! Your A/C system's job is to keep you cool and comfortable while also de-humidifying the air, while your cooling system holds a much larger job of keeping your engines temperature regulated.

On this page we go over signs you might be having trouble with both of these systems and what to do to fix and maintain them.
