Commercial Vehicles

If you need a work truck or a cargo van for your business, there’s no better brand than Ford. For 31 years, Ford has been the best-selling brand of commercial vehicles, in part thanks to the Ford Commercial Vehicle Center Program. This program focuses on building strong teams of educated, knowledgeable members who can help buyers choose and build the best commercial vehicle for their business. These teams are put together at Ford Commercial Vehicle Center dealerships. Friendly Ford is happy to say that we are one of those dealerships.

Donated Ford Transit Connect Cargo Vans Set To Help Hunger Relief Cause

If you think about it, the Ford Transit Connect is the best vehicle to serve hunger relief efforts. It’s highly efficient so you can keep costs down, meaning more money will go to more important things. It’s also got enormous cargo space, which in effect also saves gas as you can transport more with each trip. In fact, according to the automaker, each Transit Connect is capable of transporting 1,100 meals per vehicle per trip.

Hunger relief is actually one of a number of causes for which Ford has given its support. The latest charitable move was to donate five Ford Transit Connect cargo vans to various organizations that serve the Kansas City, Louisville, Miami, Phoenix and Dallas metropolitan areas.

Ford is well aware of the food insecurity issue in America. Janet Lawson, director of the Ford Motor Company Fund, said in a press release, “More than 48 million Americans live in fear of going hungry each day.” The donated Ford Transit Connect vehicles will tangibly help the cause.

Ford Steps Up in Wake of Tragedy in Oklahoma

After an F-5 tornado with winds of 210 mph ripped through the town of Moore, OK many lives were lost and the damage and destruction as a result of this natural disaster has made recovery efforts overwhelming for the surviving citizens. Thankfully volunteers, neighbors, friends, family, organizations, and companies such as the Ford Motor Company are stepping up to the plate and helping out in any way they can.

Ford announced it is donating a total of $400,000, with $150,000 coming from Oklahoma Ford dealers and going to the United Way, and $250,000 coming from the Ford Motor Company and going to the American Red Cross. In addition to the money, Ford is also donating a new Ford Transit Connect to help with relief and emergency preparedness education.

Ford is also offering residents whose vehicles were damaged by the tornado $500 towards the purchase of their next Ford vehicle.

“We know how much this tragedy is impacting our customers, neighbors and friends,” said Craig Billingsley, chairman of the Oklahoma Ford Dealers. “Oklahoma Ford dealers encourage everyone to step up to help those impacted by these devastating tornadoes.”

At Friendly Ford, our thoughts and prayers are with those in the tornado-ravaged areas of Oklahoma as they try to bounce back from this horrific tragedy.
