2015 F-150 Power Wheels is Coming Soon!

Do you have a son or daughter who loves trucks? Soon, you will be able to purchase them their very own 2015 F-150 to match yours. The F-150 Power Wheels is about 4 feet long and can seat 2 children under 130 lbs. The toy truck is powered by a 12-volt battery and production on the mini truck started back in 2013. It can travel at speeds up to 5 MPH forward and 2.5 MPH in reverse. You will have the ability to slow the truck down and set it at a max speed of 2.5 MPH if that makes you more comfortable.

Kids will also enjoy the ability to take the truck off-road as it has wheels that feature “monster traction.” What this means is that your son or daughter will be able to drive on grass with ease. The F-150 Power Wheels will be available at the end of the year (just in time for Christmas) at Wal-Mart and Toys “R” Us and is set to sell for $359.99. The F-150 Power Wheels will replace the Raptor SVT version out now.

Business Insider Likes Used Mustang and Fusion for First-Time Drivers

2013 Ford Fusion

Do you have a newly sixteen-year-old who has been itching for their first car? We understand, as a parent, you are a little nervous (okay, extremely nervous) for your teen to be behind the wheel. According to Business Insider, there are a couple of Ford models that make great cars for first-time drivers!

The 2007-Present Ford Fusion makes a great car because of its reliability, good reputation, and great safety features according to Business Insider. The Fusion offers excellent technologies which will satisfy your new driver. It also offers plenty of space and comfort for when they move for college in a few years. The 2005-Present Ford Mustang is another great choice for first-time drivers according to Business Insider. They like the fact that you can get a sports car with a V6 engine for your teen. The Mustang also received a Good Safety Rating from IIHS showing that it is indeed a safe choice.

Why buy a used car for your teen? First, you can save money by purchasing used which means more money for gas and insurance starting out. Many used vehicles come with great warranties and have a good track record for repairs and maintenance. Some certified used vehicles were previously leases, meaning most (if not all) of the maintenance has been done at a certified dealership. Leased vehicles have a good reputation for being extremely clean and offering low miles.

If you have any questions about purchasing a used vehicle or have a teen at home that just can’t wait to have their new car, stop by Friendly Ford!

Ford Plans to Bring Adaptive Steering to the Lineup

Adaptive SteeringAlthough we are unsure on where this new technology will show up first, we do know that Ford is planning to launch it across all models from Fiesta to Super Duty. Adaptive Steering is the name of the game and Ford hopes that this new technology will help out in times of low and high speed maneuvers giving drivers a better experience on the road.

The blue oval plans to be the first non-luxury brand to make adaptive steering standard on every vehicle in their lineup. Just how does adaptive steering work? As a driver, you will just cruise as you normally do. When you are turning into a spot in the parking lot, you won’t have to turn your steering wheel as much to get into a tight space. When changing lanes at a high speed on the highway, the transition will feel easier and less forced. Overall Ford Adaptive Steering will make your drive more enjoyable.

The good news is that Ford Adaptive Steering technology fits right into your steering wheel and only adds a few pounds to your vehicle. The bad news is that it isn’t available just yet. Ford is perfecting Adaptive Steering and hopes to introduce it to the lineup soon. For more Ford news and information, stop by Ford’s News Center.
