Ford F-150

If you are a fan of the F-150 and love to put things to the ultimate test, you should enter Ford’s “You Test” campaign. Ford just launched a giveaway that could put you behind the wheel of a 2015 F-150 before nearly anyone else. To enter the contest, visit BuiltToughTest.com and let Ford know how you would test the toughness of the F-150.

Ford will select a pool of five winners and tape them doing their own personal toughness test in the 2015 Ford F-150. The videos will then be posted on Ford’s YouTube page for everyone to enjoy. “We prove every day our trucks are Built Ford Tough – now we’re asking truck customers to help us prove it too,” said Ford F-150’s Marketing Manager, Eric Peterson.

If you want to test an all-new F-150, submit your entry by May 31st. Winners will be selected by September 1st and shortly thereafter they will be putting the F-150 to the ultimate test.

How would you test the toughness of the 2015 Ford F-150? Let us know in the comment section below and be sure to visit BuiltToughTest.com to officially submit your answer for a chance to win!

Ford Looks to Social Media for New Fiesta Campaign

Once again, Ford will be looking to their social media friends, fans, and followers for help with an experiment that turns out to be quite a fiesta for the participants. A select group made up 100 bloggers, tweeters, and some big name celebrities will be given keys to a new Ford Fiesta for a 6-month test drive. These individuals will then be asked to document their entire driving experience on social media as they go.

Pictures and videos from this experience will be posted online on the social media sites and will be used to help Ford build their next ad campaign for the new Fiesta. This campaign, which is being called the “social remix,” isn’t the first time Ford has tapped into social media for an experiment like this. Four years ago Ford also handed over Fiesta keys to a group of fans, which again included celebrities.

The first campaign in 2009 was very successful as thousands of applicants were willing to take part in the experiment. The number of applicants is expected to be even higher this time around. If you’re 21 or over, online applications are being accepted right now at http://www.fiestamovement.com/apply.

Along with filling out the application, Ford wants you to pitch why you’d be a perfect candidate to take part in the experiment. They’re going to be looking for strong creativity and a wow factor. The lucky participants that are chosen for the “social remix” will be receiving the new Fiestas around April or May.

Friendly Ford encourages everyone to consider giving it a shot! Or if you just want to test drive a Fiesta on your own, come out and see us today!
