Winter Tires Vs. All-Season Tires - 12/07/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––The snow and ice are coming because it is indeed winter in Michigan! When the winter weather arrives, we all run around to prepare our houses and cars for the next few months. One of the easiest ways to prepare your car and stay safe on the road in the crummy cold weather is having winter tires or snow tires put on your car. Some may think it's a better option to simply have all-season tires all year to avoid the hassle of tire service, while others deem it necessary to have winter tires during the cold months. We're here to evaluate winter tires vs. all-season tires to give you a better idea of what to do this winter!

Winter Tires Vs. All-Season Tires


WINTER TIRES

-Made of a softer rubber compound that can wear quickly in warm temperatures 
-Has wider, symmetric tread designs to allow room for slush, packed snow, ice, etc.
-Tread is typically more aggressive for stronger grip on edges
-GREAT for environments where the temperature goes below 45 degrees often
-NOT great for use year-round (it can actually cost you more if you use them all year)

ALL-SEASON TIRES

-Made of a tougher rubber compound that can harden in low temps, equaling less traction
-Has tighter tread designs, lacking room for packed snow and slush
-Has asymmetrical tread to handle wet and dry pavement
-Can handle a variety of road conditions (dry, wet, and light snow)
-GREAT for environments where the winter is mild
-NOT great for places where snow is heavy and temperatures are cold 

"But what if I have AWD or 4WD?" 

This is something you might be thinking about when going to purchase tires. Although these drivetrains are helpful in providing more traction generally, they lack in providing extra traction in icy and snowy conditions, especially in braking situations. Tested side-by-side by consumerreports.org, a sedan with winter tires and a AWD utility vehicle with winter tires use about the same braking distance in snowy conditions. 

Winter Tires Vs. All-Season Tires
If you decide you would like a set of winter tires to replace your all-season, or vice versa, we'd love to help you do so. Through the end of December you can buy tires with a 30-day low-price guarantee at North Brothers, plus we'll professionally install them for you. You can get a quote for new tires and schedule an appointment online. If you already have a set of winter tires sitting in your garage and want them swapped, we can take care of that too. We know the winter tires vs. all-season tires decision can be tough, but we're here to help. Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. 

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!

When Are the Best and Worst Times to Travel for Thanksgiving? - 11/22/2016

WESTLAND, Mich. –– Last year, AAA estimated over 46 million people would make a pilgrimage of 50 miles or more for turkey on Thanksgiving, and it's right to assume that number could stay consistent this November. With copious cars and families making holiday journeys, traffic jams and gridlock are inevitable if you don't know when the best and worst times are to travel for Thanksgiving.

When Are the Best and Worst Times to Travel for Thanksgiving?

Fortunately, Google spent two years analyzing traffic conditions around the time of Thanksgiving and compiled a mass of helpful data for you to plan your Turkey Day travels around. Before you hit the road for the holidays, consider using these tips to plan your trip.

The worst day to travel is Wednesday.
If you haven't noticed, everyone else usually has the same brilliant idea as you do, which means millions of travelers are planning on taking half-days at work and making turkey trips on Wednesday. It's best to avoid traveling the day before Thanksgiving, but if you have to make the trip on Wednesday, avoid traveling from 3–5 p.m. when the heaviest traffic is likely to occur.

The best day to travel is Thursday.
Is it any surprise the day that most people are busy watching football or sitting down to feast on a bird also happens to be the best to travel on? It may not seem ideal arriving at your Thanksgiving destination on the day of, but if you like the idea of skipping out on traffic jams and gridlock then traveling on Thursday could work in your favor.

Watch more football on Saturday, head home Sunday.
It's understandable that you don't want to overstay your welcome at a family member's, or maybe you're just ready to get home. Either way, staying an extra day could save you from a stressful return journey. Heading-home, traffic on Thanksgiving weekend can be 40% worse on Saturday than on other days. On that note, have another helping of turkey and mashed potatoes, or one of these Thanksgiving side dishes, because you're sticking around until Sunday if you want to dodge traffic.

In addition to understanding when the best and worst times are to travel for Thanksgiving, it's good to know a few travel tips that can keep you safe on the road.

  • Check the weather ahead before you set out to avoid accident-prone highways as well as the traffic jams that result from slower speeds and wrecks.
  • Map your route in advance. Knowing where construction and busy roads are will significantly reduce your time on the road.
  • Have roadside assistance contact information on hand. If you encounter a problem or you're involved in an accident, you should have your roadside assistance number and policy information ready.
  • Make sure your vehicle is prepared for the drive. If your vehicle hasn't had any recent  taken care of, it could have a few underlying issues developing. Stop by our service center for an oil change and to have your tires inspected before your long drive. It might also be helpful to take a look at our other car care and driving tips.

We're always happy to help our customers prepare for safe travels. If you have other questions or maintenance needs, stop by North Brothers Ford, located at 33300 Ford Rd Westland, MI 48185. We're proud to be one of the premier dealerships in Southeast Michigan committed to exceptional customer service! Give us a call at (888) 806-7163.

Ford's Newest Crossover Family Addition - The EcoSport - 11/15/2016

Ford's Newest Crossover Family Addition - The EcoSport

WESTLAND, Mich.–– All the excitement is over Ford and it's newest crossover family addition, The EcoSport. In the first ever Snapchat reveal, Ford welcomed the EcoSport to the U.S. yesterday in Los Angeles during the consumer experience event appropriately named Go Small, Live Big. The latter mentioned name is the motto of the EcoSport. This small or compact crossover is made to give consumers the space and features they want in a convenient package. Let's take a look at the EcoSport a little more in depth.

 Imagine a smaller version of the Ford Escape, and there you have the EcoSport. Although it is a smaller vehicle that takes up less space, that doesn't mean the EcoSport lacks in areas like style, technology, and capability. This vehicle is built for the person who believes in living big and adventurous, the one who needs the capability and connectivity wherever they go without the cost of more gas or lower mpg. Think of the EcoSport as a tiny home.




“More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff,” said Chantel Lenard, ‎executive director, Ford U.S. marketing. “EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It’s our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality.”


The Ford EcoSport: 


-Comes in 10 exterior colors
-Comes with 7 ambient lighting options
-Comes available in 4 different trim levels
-Includes an available B&O PLAY audio system by Harman
-Includes 10 speakers with HD Radio technology
-Features Intelligent 4WD
-Comes with a sport-tuned suspension and steering
-Comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the 8inch display
-Up to 30 stowage pockets, hooks, bins, etc. + a cargo management system

Even though the complete specifications aren't available just yet, the release of Ford's newest crossover family addition, The EcoSport, we're excited to see it make its way into the U.S. and onto the roads! The EcoSport is expected to make it to dealerships in early 2018.

If you're looking for a larger crossover, or maybe something smaller than the EcoSport, Ford has many great options within their lineup and on our lots now like the 2017 Ford Escape or 2017 Ford Fusion! We'd love to help you find just what you need in a vehicle. At North Brothers we make sure to find vehicles that fit your budget, so you can be proud of your purchase!

Join Ford in Celebrating Detroit Innovation at This Year's Thanksgiving Day Parade - 11/08/2016

Join Ford in Celebrating Detroit Innovation at This Year's Thanksgiving Day ParadeWESTLAND, Mich.––If you'll be tuning in to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade roll down the streets of Detroit this year on November 24th, you might notice some new things. Ford will of course be there, continuing the tradition of supporting its hometown, but in a more prevalent way. The entire 90th anniversary parade will be powered by more than 40 Ford vehicles like the F-Series trucks, Mustangs, and Explorers. Not to mention, Ford will be largely represented by the new float, appropriately named "Mobility One". We hope you'll join Ford in celebrating Detroit innovation at this year's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

The new Mobility One float will be 90 feet long and will feature a timeline of Ford's history of innovation in Detroit. The float will travel about 3 miles in the country's largest and longest-running parade. If you're watching from home, a large Henry Ford will fill your screen, followed by young student figures, and a vision of the future where cars can fly.

Join Ford in Celebrating Detroit Innovation at This Year's Thanksgiving Day Parade


Throughout the Mobility One float will be embedded screens that will be showing highlights of Ford Fund's efforts to better the world. It won't just be figures and screens, but local people you'll see around the float. Allison Schmitt, a Canton native and 8x Olympic swimming medalist will be riding on the float to celebrate her families commitment to Ford. There will also be dozens of Ford Volunteer Corps members walking in stride with the float.

The float, Annual Ford Fireworks, and Ford's new sponsorship commitment of 3 years to the Thanksgiving Day Parade are just a few ways Ford is showing support for the Detroit community this November. Ford is also partnering with Holiday Meals on Wheels this year to get Thanksgiving Day meals out to over 6,000 home-bound seniors. As a group effort, Ford and The Parade Company and Gleaners Community Food Bank are teaming up to help feed 715,000 people! You can make a donation to the Food bank at gcfb.org.

In the past 10 years, Ford has made investments towards a Ford Resource Center, Cass Community Social Services' tiny homes project, emergency vehicle and mobile food pantry donations, the Ford STEAM Lab, and the Bill Ford Better World Challenge grant to University of Detroit-Mercy.

Join Ford in celebrating Detroit innovation at this year's Thanksgiving Day Parade by tuning in on channels WDIV-TV, WJR-AM, and WOMC-FM at 8:45am when the parade begins. We're proud to represent a company that consistently innovates for a better world and safer future, and that assists young minds in making a difference by following their dreams. We're proud to be a community partner to many organizations in the Westland area, and want to help provide community members safe and reliable vehicles. We can help you find the perfect ride, and help you maintain it, too with routine maintenance, and this season, Fall Car Care!

Scare-Proof Neighborhood-Driving Tips for Halloween - 10/28/2016

Scare-Proof Neighborhood-Driving Tips for Halloween

WESTLAND, Mich. –– Halloween might be all tricks and treats for kids, but for drivers it can be a night of fear-driven anxiety and goose bumps as they cruise down neighborhood streets hoping the goblins, ghosts, and ghouls stay on the sidewalks as they creep from door-to-door shouting for candy.

While we recommend that you don’t drive on Halloween in order to avoid any potential hazards due to an influx of kids strolling the nighttime streets, if you must drive somewhere, be sure to follow these scare-proof neighborhood-driving tips for Halloween that will help you keep the trick-or-treating kids in your area safe.

Stay off neighborhood streets.
That is, stay off neighborhood streets if you’re able to. Of course, this is a lofty demand, and we don’t expect that everyone will be able to carry it out. If you have to drive somewhere during trick-or-treating hours, try to find the safest possible route out of your neighborhood based on where kids are and aren’t trick-or-treating.

Take it easy on the gas pedal.
It’s important to keep your driving speeds low during Halloween when you’re traveling through a neighborhood. Driving slowly give you more time to react in a situation that could require quick thinking, such as a group of trick-or-treaters running across a street without looking your way first.

Be a beacon of light.
Meaning, don’t be afraid to use your brights, or fog lights, when you’re driving in dark areas of your neighborhood that may not be lined with streetlights. Using your brights will give you a broader scope of vision in these instances and allow you more time to react quickly in situations like those mentioned above.

If you see a stop sign, stop.
You know who you are, rolling stoppers. The truth is the majority of drivers never come to complete stops at stop signs, although we all should because it’s a safety law. But specifically on Halloween this law is vital for drivers to follow religiously. Most kids don’t look both ways before crossing a street, despite what their parents taught them. By rolling through a stop sign, you aren’t giving yourself enough time to check your surroundings before continuing, but if you come to a full stop you have plenty of time to make sure there aren’t an ghosts lurking on corners, ready to take flight in front of your vehicle.

Yield sign or no yield sign, slow down at intersections.
This tip dovetails with coming to complete stops at stop signs. However, in this case we’re recommending that you slow down at intersections and check your surroundings before proceeding, even if there aren’t any yield signs telling you to do so. Again, most kids aren’t paying attention to anything but candy and creepy costumes on Halloween, so it’s your job to look out for them.


We hope with these scare-proof neighborhood-driving tips for Halloween, you and all your little ghouls and goblins make it home safe with loads of candy in hand! One easy way to stay safe on the road and keep your vehicle running well is with routine maintenance. Check out all our Fall Car Care tips and schedule your auto service online!

Pumpkin Carving Ideas - 10/20/2016

WESTLAND, Mich. –– Halloween is right around the corner which means it's a great time to gather the kids, family and friends and carve pumpkins! Whether you prefer to stick with the traditional gap-toothed grin pumpkin, or are looking for something a little more interesting, we've got a few pumpkin carving ideas to get you inspired!

1. Cookie Monster
This idea is super easy and fun to do. All you need is blue paint, styrofoam balls, a black marker and cookies! This would be a great table decoration to serve cookies, or even look good on your porch with cookies not intended for little hands to eat.

Pumpkin Carving Ideas

2.  Monsters, Inc. 
If you or your kids are big fans of Monsters, Inc., this pumpkin carving idea is perfect! The best part about this idea is that it actually doesn't require carving - all you need is paint and/or permanent markers! 

Pumpkin Carving Ideas

3. The Sick Pumpkin
Looking to gross out any trick-or-treaters that stop by? Why not give this sick pumpkin a try! After you carve out the face, pull some of the pumpkins innards out to make it look like a 'sick' pumpkin - gross! 

Pumpkin Carving Ideas


4. The Owl Pumpkin
This pumpkin is a cute idea for those that aren't looking to spook or terrify. It works best with an oblong pumpkin, however, it's easy with any pumpkin and/or gourd.

Pumpkin Carving Ideas


5. Pumpkin Inception
If you think you're a master pumpkin carver and are up for a challenge, try this skull pumpkin within another pumpkin! While it might be tricky trying to find the right size pumpkins, this is one idea that will impress anyone that sees it.

Pumpkin Carving Ideas

When you spend a good amount of time carving your pumpkin, you want it to last as long as possible. That's why we recommend dipping your pumpkin in a large container of bleach and water (1 tsp. bleach per gallon of water). The bleach will kill bacteria and keep your pumpkin looking fresh! If you'd like to preserve your pumpkin even longer, brush a 2 tbsp. vinegar and 1 tsp. lemon juice mixture on your dry pumpkin every other day to keep it fresh for weeks.

We hope these pumpkin carving ideas have inspired you to make some truly terrifying and/or fantastic pumpkins this season! If you need a new ride to get you to the pumpkin patch, stop by our dealership to check out our vast SUV/Crossover inventory and Ford F-150 inventory that'll get you through the winter and beyond!  While you're preparing your house for the colder weather, don't forget to also prep your car for the winter months ahead.

Better Fuel Economy is Just an F-150 Away - 10/17/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––Finding a great deal on the truck of your dreams may be a priority, but considering the long term cost of ownership should be among your thoughts when going to purchase of lease a vehicle. Ford has been consistently innovating to bring its customers better vehicles, better features, and better gas mileage. Going further on a gas tank is important to Ford, and better fuel economy is just an F-150 away.

Better Fuel Economy is Just an F-150 Away


The 2017 F-150 models boast EPA-estimated ratings 2mpg higher than 2016 year models thanks to the new 3.5L EcoBoost engine. The 2016 F-150 offered 17/24/20mpg city/hwy/combined, and the 2017 F-150 will get 18/25/21mpg city/hwy/combined. However, this year the F-150's engine will be combined with the very first production 10-speed automatic transmission. This type of transmission will offer more smooth gear switching, enhanced performance, and a quicker 'get-up'. Better low-end and peak performance is what you'll see with the 10-speed pairing.

The all new adaptive-shift scheduling system will provide a more engaging driving experience. This is thanks to the shifting algorithms which take in real-time data from powertrain and driver control signals to ensure the right gear is being used at the right time. This will give towers and haulers more confidence. The weight-loss in the 2017 Ford F-150 is a big catalyst in the improved shifting performance. The 10-speed gearbox uses alloy and other advanced material to help the truck shed some pounds and reduced the overall packaging footprint, which is just one of the thousands of ways Ford is working to reduce, reuse, recycle, and sustain.

The fun of improved performance isn't just for the new 10-speed/EcoBoost engine pairing, it's also for the 2nd generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. The new V6 will receive a boost in horsepower by 10. The total numbers for this engine actually beat out the diesel and gasoline competitors, including V8 engines. The second generation V6 can achieve 470 lb-ft of torque, and 375 hp.

If you're interested in checking out a 2016 Ford F-150, which will be offered for $244/mo through the end of October, we've got plenty for you to look at. We'd be happy to give you a test drive so you can see what the EcoBoost engine has to offer! You can check out our Ford F-150 model overview page to get a feel for each option available or start shopping now by viewing our online inventory. If you've got an F-150 that you want to keep running well, make sure to take care of routine maintenance and Fall Car Care before the winter season arrives.

Tips For Driving Safely Around Deer - 10/13/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––In Michigan, it's easy to look around and see all sorts of live nature, including animals. Even in the suburbs it's not hard to find animals of all kinds, including deer. While they're interesting to watch from your window, they can be dangerous, especially on the side of the road. This time of year is prime for deer and vehicle collisions in Michigan. In fact, Michigan is at high-risk, according to Statefarm, for collision with deer. We're here to provide you some tips for driving safely around deer!

Tips For Driving Safely Around Deer



Understanding deer is a difficult, and many times we don't know what action they'll take when you encounter them. Why they run out onto the road or why they stand and stare blankly at your headlights can seem like a mystery, but there are some general rules of thumb you can follow.

-Deer breed October through January each year and are most active during this time. This is when deer and vehicle collision chances are most high, so keep this in mind when you're on the move this fall and winter. 

-Deer typically hangout around open fields and wooded areas, but may come through to the suburbs or close to the road to forage for food. 

-Deer are most active during dawn and dusk. This makes them hard to see, so pay extra attention.

-Deer tend to fixate on bright lights. If you encounter one on the road who's blankly staring and not moving, flick your high beams on and off to grab their attention and hopefully scare them off. 

-Deer always travel in herds and very rarely alone, so if you see one, you can expect there to be others around. It's important to slow down even if the one you saw ran away. 

We want you to stay safe all year long on the road and hope these tips for driving safely around deer help you do so. Unfortunately collisions do happen with deer. In fact, it's better to hit the deer than to swerve and risk worse injuries. If you experience a collision with a deer, you can feel a slight peace of mind bringing your car to our North Brothers Collision Center because we work with all major insurance companies, have excellent expert auto technicians, and use state of the art equipment.

You can schedule a collision appointment online or by giving us a call. We'll walk you through what fixes need to be made, and will have you back on the road in no time. We always want to provide you a transparent, convenient, and positive experience because our community is family to us! To stay the most safe on the road this season and beyond, use our Fall Car Care tips and have us take care of any routine vehicle maintenance or inspections.

5 Autumn Decorating Tips and Ideas - 10/06/2016

5 Autumn Decorating Tips and Ideas

WESTLAND, Mich. –– Autumn has officially arrived! That means cooler temperatures and changing leaves have returned, and Michigan is preparing for holidays lurking just around the corner. To get you into the spirit of fall, we've come up with 5 Autumn decorating tips and ideas that you and your guests will love.


First, why not bring nature inside? Cut a few branches filled with acorns and put them in a glass vase with lemons and water. It instantly and inexpensively brings fall into your home. You can place this beautiful piece in your walkway, on your table, or even on your mantlepiece; be creative!

Another way to spruce up your table is to buy or create a centerpiece box using pallet scraps. This piece can be used year round by filling it with festive items. For fall, we recommend using gourds, pumpkins, candles, or even branches like those in the vase above. It's gorgeous and festive!

5 Autumn Decorating Tips and Ideas

One important aspect of autumn decorating is pairing your decor with seasonal scents. Visuals are wonderful but the aromas of pumpkin pie, apple cider, and cinnamon can instantly make your home feel autumnal. Gather as many candles, incenses, or spices you have available and spread them around your house. This will instantly make your home feel inviting and warm. not to mention your house will smell amazing!

You can also transition your home into the fall season by hanging a beautiful autumn wreath on your front door. Whether you make one, buy one, or pull out an old wreath you already have, it's a wonderful adornment to welcome guests into your home with.  

5 Autumn Decorating Tips and Ideas

Although there are numerous ways to decorate for fall, our final tip is to hang heavier drapery and curtains. This tip is actually a practical one since heavier fabrics will help keep the cold out of your house –– something that will help cut costs when it comes to heating your home. Go with the drapery and curtains that come in deeper colors and heavier fabrics. Your room will feel warmer because of the cozy colors, and will literally be warmer because of the heavier material!

We hope that these 5 Autumn decorating tips and ideas have helped you get excited for the fall season. While you're preparing your house for the colder weather, don't forget to also prep your car for the winter months ahead.

Off-Road Warrior 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Available This Fall - 09/29/2016

WESTLAND, Mich.––Ford has recently reported sales that show more adventurous and thrill-seeking buyers are flocking to Ford's performance lineup. Globally, Ford will sell more than 200,000 performance cars in 2016, which is about twice what performance sales were three years ago. Coming to the lineup is the new off-road warrior, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, available this fall. The newest Raptor pickup truck model is ready to show off with many improvements to off-road performance, fuel economy, and power overall.

Off-Road Warrior 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Available This Fall

The new 2017 Raptor is coming with a stunning 450 Hp, Ford just announced, and a powerful 510 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 model will weigh in at 500 lbs less than the 2014 model. This is thanks to the same aluminum alloy body and high-strength steel frame you'll see in standard F-150s. The new weight and body will also be paired with a high-output 10-speed transmission and EcoBoost engine, which leads to:

21% improvement in average torque-to-weight ratio
You'll find better optimized power bands and lower RPM torque thanks to the 10-speed transmission and torque on-demand transfer case.  

23% improvement in EPA-estimated fuel economy
EPA ratings for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is 15 city/18 highway/16 combined mpg, although your use of the truck will create varied actual mileage. 

“The torque-on-demand transfer case and six-mode Terrain Management System is unique to Raptor in the Ford family of vehicles,” Tranter said. “It gives you the benefit of a clutched all-wheel-drive system for easy around-town maneuverability in bad weather. Then, there’s Baja Mode, which automatically engages a mechanically locked 4X4 high, and optimizes throttle response, shifting and boost control to provide improved off-road capability. That’s definitely drawing a line in the sand.”



We can't forget to mention the addition of driving modes to fit whatever road in whatever condition. The modes include Baja, rock/crawl, sport, weather, mud/sand, and normal. The trucks adaptive shift technology works to ensure the right gear is enabled at the right time for a more engaged driving experience. The reduced weight lends to better shifting function overall. 

The off-road warrior, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be available this fall, but you can test out all the F-150 has to offer by taking a test drive at our dealership. We have a wide range of 2016 Ford F-150s to choose from with different packages and trim levels to suit your needs. Whatever you're looking for, we'd be happy to help you find it! Not sure whether you should buy or lease your next vehicle? Use our Buying Vs. Leasing guide for reference, and let us know if you have any questions.

Ford is Empowering Young Minds with the Girl Scout Fast Track Races Program - 09/22/2016


WESTLAND, Mich.––The Girl Scouts of America are widely known as the source for delicious cookies, however there is much more to the organization than that. While the cookies do teach strong lessons in sales and business, the goal of the Girl Scouts organization is to build the courage, confidence, and character of these girls who make the world a better place. As we've started to see a trend in encouraging young ladies to explore their interests in the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) areas, Ford has seized the opportunity to help in making that happen. Ford is empowering young minds with the Girl Scouts Fast Track Races program.

These Fast Track Races are typically associated with the Boy Scouts. It's the building and designing of wooden block cars that race a track where the fastest car wins. These races rely on technical research, testing, and building to create the car. Ford Motor Company has partnered with Girl Scouts Councils in Northern New Jersey, Tropical Florida, Northeast Texas, and Southeastern Michigan. This particular program will facilitate 200 Brownies and 200 Juniors from each of the councils.

The goals of these races is to encourage and support these girls' interest and aptitude for technical subjects, that's often not seen throughout education in school and out. The Girls' Fast Track Races are just one of many Ford STEAM Experience programs, which were built to introduce, excite, and expand on opportunities for science, technology, engineering, art, and math careers.


“Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas is excited to team up with Ford Motor Company, to inspire these members who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math,” said Jennifer Bartkowski, CEO Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas. “Girls need opportunities to expand their realm of what’s possible. Through this collaboration, girls will get to explore STEAM concepts and careers as they design, test and race their own cars.”

The Fast Track Race competition for the Southeastern Michigan Council is set to take place on October 15th in Rochester Hills, MI at the Oakland University Athletics Center O'Rena. We wish all the Girl Scouts participating in this competition the best of luck! As an organization that believes success is within the community, we can't think of a better way to expand young minds and lead them to change the world. We're amazed that Ford is empowering young minds with the Girl Scouts right in Southeast Michigan! You can get even more inspired by checking out the Ford STEAM Experience

Class-Leading Power Sedan - The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport - 09/06/2016

Class-Leading Power Sedan - The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport

WESTLAND, Mich.––As you might already be aware, the class-leading power sedan - the 2017 Ford Fusion Sport, is quite the game changer. While it might not be the one to stomp the German performance, as some have predicted, it is a giant step above its competitors in power and capability thanks to the new Sport Mode. This is all within an affordable price the German performance cars like Audi, BMW, and Mercedes, simply cannot beat. The new V6 Fusion Sport features a new design, a powerful 380 lb-ft of torque, 325 horsepower, and a 2.7L EcoBoost engine. Let's take a small tour of the new Fusion Sport:

The 2017 Ford Fusion will be sporting refreshed looks, with inspiration from performance cars like the Aston Martin (the grille resemblance is noticeable). The Sport Mode and Sport trim level offers drivers looking for a performance vehicle one with a nice price tag. The 2017 Ford Fusion Sport starts at $33,475 including the all-wheel drive feature. Yes, you read that right, all-wheel drive in a Ford sedan!

You'll also see some nice design changes on the interior like the refreshed cup holder design, because this feature is as important as ever. The acoustic laminated glass and dual radio receptor allows for better sound quality. Not to mention an available Sony premium sound system paired with Ford's most advanced infotainment system, Ford SYNC 3, will rock your world as you're enjoying the enhanced driving feel.




So about that enhanced driving feel...What will the 2017 Ford Fusion's Sport Mode offer?
  • Better handling overall - especially in cornering
  • More torque for that power you want 
  • Increased responsiveness in steering
