2015 Ford F-150

The 2015 Ford F-150 offers drivers a lighter, more refined body because it uses aluminum instead of the standard metals used before. The use of aluminum has saved the F-150 700 pounds and has thus increased efficiency and increased dent resistance.

Although the efficiencies and dent resistance will add value to the truck, consumers and dealerships are worried about the costs associated with fixing a largely aluminum truck. Ford says not to worry! They recently announced that they will be paying 20% of what shops will spend on training and gear to fix the 2015 F-150.

Ford is hoping to move more of their vehicles toward the use of aluminum for added efficiencies. Their investment in repairs definitely shows how serious they are about moving in said direction. The F-150 continues to be Ford’s best-selling vehicle and Ford has made a commitment to continue that tradition with its all new F-150.

Ford at NAIAS

Have you seen all of the great new Ford vehicles and concepts that debuted at NAIAS over the past week and a half? The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), also known as The Detroit Auto Show, ends this Sunday the 26th and the team here at Friendly Ford wants to show you some of our favorite cars from the show.

NAIAS is celebrating its 25th Anniversary of being an International Show, although the show itself traces its roots all the way back to 1907. Originally the Detroit Auto Show was regional. In 1989, a group of Detroit auto dealers got together to make the show more globally recognized. Since 1989, 1,359 vehicles have been introduced at NAIAS and more than 18 million people have visited the show.

Ford is showcasing everything from the 2015 Mustang to the all-new Raptor. Let’s take a look at Ford at NAIAS.

Model T Driving Class

1912 Ford Model T

Ever wondered what it would be like to drive a Ford Model T? The Gilmore Car Museum which is located about 3 hours away from our dealership will be offering driving classes to people of all ages during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons in 2014. The Gilmore Car Museum located in Hickory Corners, Michigan offers a whole day of vehicle exhibits.

The Ford Model T was assembled in Detroit on 1908. The Model T engine was placed in 15,000,000 automobiles within 19 years! The introduction of the assembly line in 1914 enabled Ford to produce more automobiles than any other company of that time. The Ford Model T remains an important part of American History.

The Model T Driving Class lasts for about two and a half hours and is limited to 18 students per class. Classes will be offered on May 3rd, June 22nd, July 22nd, August 23rd, and September 14th. The driving class is only $95 and it includes a tour of the museum. If you are interested in taking part in one of the classes, be sure to call and reserve your spot at 269-671-5089.
