Ford F-150 Protected From The Sun's Effects: Fading, Damage, Glare - 09/17/2014

Ford F-150 Protected From The Sun's Effects: Fading, Damage, Glare

JACKSON, Mich. – When it comes to our skin, we're extremely conscious about protecting it from the sun. But what about our vehicles? They are outside enduring the elements for most of their lives, and eventually it begins to show. But that's no longer the case for Ford Motor Company's newest truck! The Ford F-150 is protected from the sun's fading, damage, and glare effects thanks to new, specially developed parts that protect it!

As the result of extreme testing, the new Ford F-150 will be protected from the sun's fading, damage, and glare effects both inside and out! To put it simply, Ford used technology to replicate almost any sunlight conditions and to simulate damaging UV rays to interior parts, exterior parts, and even the Blue Oval and F-150 Badge in extreme conditions to study any signs of degradation so that the final product could be produced to withstand those effects. After testing at the automaker's Central Lab and Visual Performance Evaluation Lab, engineers designed individual parts to be stronger and more durable.

Fading and damage aren't the only effects the sun has on your vehicle though, it can also producing blinding glare. So, Ford engineers combated both direct and indirect glare in the F-150 by incorporating shaded gauges and by using advanced computer-aided design software ensure the materials used inside the truck are the least reflective. For the gauges that are shaded, supplemental lighting was used to enhance their readability. So while in other vehicles a glare can wash out your navigation or entertainment screen, you'll be fully protected in the 2015 F-150!

Being Built Ford Tough is not just about manufacturing a truck that has the power to get the job done or can survive dirt, rocks, and extreme terrain. Now, it's also about designing a truck that is protected from the sun's effects so that in five or more years, it will look as good as the day your bought it!

If you're ready to invest in a vehicle that will be protected from the sun's damaging rays for years to come, stop by our Ford Dealership near Hillsdale, MI to check out what the F-150 has to offer! Seymour Ford Lincoln is located at 2601 Seymour Road in Jackson, Michigan.

10 New 2015 Ford F-150 Features You'll Love

JACKSON, Mich. – Ford Motor Company doesn't mess around when it comes to developing one of the best full-size trucks on the market. They don't just incorporate all of the typical aspects you'd expect on one of today's trucks, rather they go above and beyond to include features you didn't even know you needed! What kind of features are we talking about? Check out these 10 New 2015 Ford F-150 Features You'll Love

1. When you're entering your keyless entry code on your truck's driver-side door, you don't want to have to struggle to see the numbers. So, Ford added hard buttons to the keypad so you can input your code by feel.

10 New 2015 Ford F-150 Features You'll Love

2. It's all about being comfortable when you're behind the wheel, so Ford's designers added beltlines on the front doors to act as additional armrests.

3. It's also easier to open and close the F-150's doors thanks to sculpted finger relief on the inside of the door handles.
4. To keep easily control your interior ambiance, all lighting, radio and climate controls have been grouped together on the F-150's center instrument panel. 

5. Off-roading or maneuvering a trailer call for precision, which is no problem with the new indents on the back side of the steering wheel that improve maneuverability.

7. Entertainment information has been moved exclusively to the center console. To the F-150 owner, their truck is their tool, so the instrument panel is free from entertainment info except for incoming calls and turn-by-turn directions.

10 New 2015 Ford F-150 Features You'll Love

8. In addition to the steering wheel indents, designers left the bottom of the steering wheel open to allow for a comfortable grip on the lower portion of the four-spoke steering wheel.

9. Opening and closing the tailgate is now a one hand job thanks to new grooves in the tailgate handle.

10 New 2015 Ford F-150 Features You'll Love

Before You Leave
First things first, if you haven't arranged a hotel room it's not too late. In fact, you could even save yourself some money by taking advantage of last minute deals, just make sure to research your destination and take a look at reviews.

This one should be obvious, but make sure to plan for delays whether you are traveling to your destination by plane, train, or automobile. Allow extra time for traffic delays, weather issues, delayed flights, backed up security checkpoints, etc. You can prevent becoming stressed out when you know that you have allotted extra time in your travel plans.

Should anything unfortunate occur during your weekend travels, it is always a good idea to have copies of important documents on hand. Before you leave, make copies of your drivers license/passport, credit cards, etc. and keep them in a safe place should you need them for backup.

On The Road
Like we said above, when en route to your destination, make sure to allow extra time for any delays you may encounter. With so many additional drivers on the road, it is more important than ever to practice not only safe driving but defensive driving. Stay aware of your surroundings so that you are prepared to avoid any possible dangerous driving situations. Depending on how long your drive is, make sure to pack snacks that will keep you alert and energized, and allow yourself time to take breaks so you don't end up drowsy behind the wheel.

Over The Weekend

Plug-In Vehicles and Energy Companies Communicate via the Cloud - 08/04/2014

JACKSON, Mich - Ford Motor Company and seven other global automakers are partnering up with 15 U.S. utility companies in an effort to develop a technology that will help plug-in vehicles and energy companies communicate via the cloud. What does this mean for you as a customer? Well, this technology would allow plug-in vehicles from all participating automakers to communicate with the utility companies. This will help to better manage the use and efficiency of the power grid. 

Plug-In Vehicles and Energy Companies Communicate via the Cloud

Those plug-in customers who have opted-in to the program will allow for energy companies to contact them and send a request for their car to stop charging temporarily to help manage a grid that may be overloaded. Customers will also have the option to ignore the request and continue to charge their vehicle at the location of their choice. Participating utility companies are even preparing to offer financial incentives to customers who do make their cars available to the grid, such as providing customers with discounts on air conditioning. 

Plug-In Vehicles and Energy Companies Communicate via the Cloud

Plug-in vehicles and energy companies can communicate via the cloud using some of the existing communication technology and standards, like Ford's MyFord® Mobile App. This new development will be taking this current technology and pushing to advance the systems to enable two-way communication between the electric grid and electric vehicles. 


Plug-In Vehicles and Energy Companies Communicate via the Cloud

Currently, the organizations participating in the software and hardware development and demonstration are: DTE Energy Company, PJM Interconnection LLC, CenterPoint Energy, Inc., Southern Company, Northeast Utilities, Souther California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric, Commonwealth Edison, TVA, Manitoba Hydro, Austin Energy, ConEd and CPS Energy.

All-New Ford F-150 Welcomes Two New Engines to Four-Engine Lineup - 07/24/2014

All-New Ford F-150 Welcomes Two New Engines to Four-Engine Lineup
JACKSON, Mich - From hauling tools to towing trailers, Ford is providing their F-150 customers with choices that will meet any of their needs. The most capable and efficient F-150 to date has welcomed two new engines to its four-engine lineup. These two impressive V6 engines, the 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost and normally aspirated 3.5-liter Ti-VCT, are raising the bar for light-duty pickup truck performance. 

The twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is a high-output engine with a brand new design that encompasses power and performance within one smart package. The engine is made from an extremely light, yet durable compacted graphite iron cylinder block and contains the fuel saving, Auto Start-Stop technology. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost produces 325 horsepower and has an improved power-to-weight ratio with 375 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine has a maximum payload of 2,250 pounds and a maximum tow rate of 8,500 pounds, making it the perfect engine choice for customers looking for mid-range capabilities.

The 3.5-liter V6 has been finely tuned for responsive power and durability. With vehicle weight savings, this engine offers a 5 percent improvement in power-to-weight ratio, better fuel efficiency and performance over the larger 3.7-liter V6 in the 2014 F-150. The 3.5-liter V6 produces 283 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque as well as has a maximum payload of 1,910 pounds and tow rate of 7,600. For a V6 light-duty pickup truck, these capabilities are unsurpassable. 

Offered alongside the new V6 engines are the 3.5-liter EcoBoost and the 5.0-liter V8 with Ti-VCT. Ford Motor Company understands that welcoming two new engines to the all-new F-150 lineup allots for a more comprehensive, capable and efficient range of engine choices that will each be able to meet the needs of all Ford truck customers.

Ford Launches $1 Million Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship Program - 07/14/2014

Ford Launches $1 Million Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship Program
JACKSON, Mich - In light of many years of exceptional leadership and dedication to Ford Motor Company as CEO, Ford will launch a $1 Million Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship Program. Ford will run the program for 10 years starting the spring of 2015 and during that time they will distribute $10,000 scholarships to 10 outstanding sophomore or junior engineering students each year. Funding has been provided by both Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company Fund, who have each given $500,000 to the scholarship program.

In order for a student to obtain an Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship, they should not only demonstrate fantastic engineering abilities in the classroom, but exemplify the traits of someone who will guide the next generation of leaders within the automobile industry. Alan Mulally has both an engineering background and a data-driven decision making mindset, which is what helped to set the bar of outstanding leadership at Ford Motor Company.  

The Alan Mulally scholarship program will be managed by the Ford Fund as apart of its "Ford Blue Oval Scholars" initiative. Students who have been granted a scholarship will be connected with Ford's corporate science, technology, engineering and math strategic (STEM) initiative. With these scholarships, Ford education efforts are further supported and will help to develop a new generation of leaders within the STEM fields.

Ford F-150 Tops List for American-Made Vehicles - 07/09/2014

Ford F-150 Tops List for American-Made Vehicles
JACKSON, Mich - The Ford F-150 Tops the List for American-Made Vehicles on Cars.com's ninth annual American-Made Index, which looks for vehicles built and bought in the United States, made with more than 75% American parts. This index is based on two key factors that can actually be found on the window sticker of any new vehicle: final assembly point and the vehicle's domestic-parts content. These labels show the percentage of U.S and Canadian parts -which by congressional mandate, the American Automobile Labeling Act includes Canada within the same "domestic" pool. Along with showing the area of where the car was built, the vehicle's label will also tell you where the engine and transmission were produced. 

It should come at no surprise that the Ford F-150 Tops the List for American-Made Vehicles, not only because of its contents, but also because of the number of F-Series trucks that Ford sells each year. With a high demand comes a busy work week for the Ford factories in Dearborn, Michigan and Claycomo, Missouri. These two Ford factories, where numerous employees split three working shifts for a total of 120 hours a week, are said to produce roughly 60 trucks in just one hour. As these Ford employees work diligently to production enough of the F-Series model to meet the high customer demand, it only makes sense to have the truck's parts made domestically. 

Learn more about the American-made Ford F-150 by visiting us at Seymour Ford Lincoln today! We are located at 2601 Seymour Road in Jackson, Michigan. We offer a transparent car buying experience - no smoke and mirrors here! No matter what your auto need, we work hard ensure you never leave our dealership unsatisfied! Visit us at SeymourFord.com and SeymourLincoln.net or give us a call at (517) 787-9500.

Ford China Vehicle Sales Exceed the Half-Million Mark - 07/07/2014

Ford China Vehicle Sales Exceed the Half-Million Mark
JACKSON, Mich - The first-half of the year has gone immensely well for Ford China. Vehicle Sales have exceeded the half-million mark with 549,256 vehicles sold since the start of 2014. This is a 35 percent increase in sales compared to this time last year, which totalled 407,474 vehicles sold. Such a significant increase in sales has proven the success of the China growth plan. Ford China has worked diligently to grow their sales network, increase capacity and hire exceptional employees to deliver the high quality, safety, fuel efficiency and smart technologies that China customers are constantly searching for.

The Ford Focus, Ford Kuga, Ford Mondeo and the Ford EcoSport have continued to be hot commodities for the last six months; June sales alone increased 17 percent with 87,783 vehicles sold! The Ford Focus nameplate led CAF, Ford's passenger car joint venture, sales for the first half of the year with 201,464 vehicles sold, 33,614 of those were sold during the month of June. The Ford Mondeo sold 59,726 vehicles the first half; a 124 percent increase from the first half of 2013. The Kuga and EcoSport SUVs each increased their sales by selling 66,225 and 33,403 units; up 78 and 103 percent from this time last year.

Ford China Vehicle Sales Exceeding the Half-Million Mark is one of several factors that will contribute to the success that lies ahead. Last month, Ford opened its US $350 million transmission plant in Chongqing -the first transmission plant in the Asia Pacific region. The CAFTP, Changan Ford Transmission Plant, will produce roughly 400,000 units a year to meet the growing demand from Chinese consumers.

2015 Edge Raises Bar for Ford Utility Vehicles - 06/26/2014

2015 Edge Raises Bar for Ford Utility Vehicles
JACKSON, Mich - Once again, Ford Motor Company has proven that their products only continue to get bigger and better. After its reveal on June 24th, it is safe to say that the 2015 Edge has Raised the Bar for Ford Utility Vehicles. The 2015 Edge debuted its new athletic shape in North America and Europe on Tuesday, showing enhancements on everything from the wheels to the roof. Every inch of the Ford Edge has been revamped and reengineered, adding more features and technologies that will give customers a better driving experience than ever before. The new solid body structure and redesigned suspension on the Edge have greatly improved driving dynamics, reducing noise, vibration and other rough characteristics. Ford customers will see that with the 2015 Ford Edge they can throughly enjoy a quieter, smoother ride on their everyday commute as well as be ready to attack when the road opens up!

The 2015 Edge is Ford's first product to feature adaptive steering technology. Adaptive steering adjusts the ratio between a driver's actions at the steering wheel, or the number of turns, and how often the front wheels turn. Ford's adaptive steering continually changes the steering ratio with vehicle speed, which optimizes steering response in all situations. For instance, when the vehicle is heading into a parking spot at a low speed, the vehicle will become more agile and easier to turn. At faster speeds the ride will become more enjoyable because the system will allow the Edge to react more smoothly and precisely to driver input. 

This time around, Ford is all about giving Edge customers plenty of choices. The 2015 Edge will feature three engine options - a standard twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder with 245 horsepower, the 3.5-liter V6 engine and the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 on the Sport model. Every engine will be equipped with dual output exhaust and a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift activation. Paddle-activated SelectShirt gives drivers the ability to manually select gears with race-inspired paddles on the steering wheel. The Edge's six-speed automatic will always be "live in drive", so drivers won't have to worry about selecting sport mode to enable the feature.


2015 Edge Raises Bar for Ford Utility Vehicles

The 2015 Edge Raises the Bar for Ford Utility Vehicles, especially when it comes to technology. Several technologies are being offered for the very first time, including adaptive steering, enhanced park assist, side parking sensors and a front camera with a washer. Other key technology features include: hands-free liftgate, lane-keeping system, SYNC® with MyFord Touch®, cross-traffic alert, and much, much more! Ford strives to continuously develop and offer the latest, most advanced technology in the industry. With technology being such a huge part of customers lives, Ford wants to incorporate it into their driving experience as well.

The all-new Edge has officially reset the standard for crossover utility vehicles. It is planned that the 2015 Ford Edge will go on sale early next year and eventually be sold in more than 100 markets around the world.
