Ford Uses Asia-Pacific Summit for 2015 Everest SUV Debut

 

In the North American market, Ford dominates the SUV field with the popular Explorer SUV, a car-based crossover that has been a best seller since its introduction in 1990. Now, the American carmaker is looking to create the same type of reputation in Asia with a new Ranger-based SUV called the Everest. Ford recently used the Asia-Pacific Economy Cooperation (APEC) Summit as a venue for the 2015 Everest SUV debut, showcasing an all-new version that is sure to make an impact on the Asian market.

“The new Ford Everest is an exceptionally versatile vehicle, equally prepared for the everyday commute as it is for the most extreme off-road terrain,” said Dave Schoch, president of Ford Asia Pacific. “The Everest’s unique blend of tough capability and exceptional comfort is going to resonate with drivers across Asia Pacific and around the world.”

The SUV’s toughness is reflected in a rugged exterior design, which is at odds with its sophisticated interior, which combines innovative technologies and style to create a comfortable cabin. The appeal of this SUV is enhanced by its fun-to-drive performance, making it a great choice for any consumer.

While the 2015 Everest isn’t available in the States, Shults Ford of Harmarville offers plenty of SUV and crossover options to choose from. Stop in today to check out Ford’s utility vehicle lineup!

We Couldn’t Take Our Eyes off the Custom Ford Expeditions at the 2014 SEMA Show

Custom Ford Expeditions

The Ford booth at the 2014 SEMA Show was already hard to miss, what with its dozen pimped-out Mustangs and custom Transits. At Shults Ford though, it was the upgraded 2015 Expeditions that we couldn’t take our eyes off of.

Ford brought three unique custom Ford Expeditions, all worthy of attention. The first was tuned by Dub Magazine, riding on massive 26-inch Dropstar wheels with Pirelli tires and lowered suspension for a crazy-cool look. It also had a new mesh grille at the front, tinted windows, an integrated radar detector, and new upholstery to top it all off.

The second got a makeover by Tjin, who focused on the engine above all else. It brought the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 up 40 horsepower to a total of 405 hp by upgrading it with a charge cooler from Vortech Engineering, a custom side exhaust, and a custom tune. The SUV also got bigger brakes, an Air Lift suspension, and 24-inch, copper-colored wheels with custom fender flares—because, why not?

The final custom Ford Expedition was all about being prepared for the winter, according to Vaccar’s lead designer. It received a brush bar up front, swiveling hooks, and roof rack baskets from Yakima. Inside, the upholstery was redone in silver Ultra-Suede to give it the look and feel of a lodge. It sure looks cozy!

Ford’s Sponsorship of Honor Flights Helps World War II Veterans Travel to Washington, D.C.

Ford’s Sponsorship of Honor Flights

In an effort to show support to our veterans, Ford sent 91 Chicago-area veterans to Washington D.C. via the ‘Honor Flight Chicago’ program on October 29th. The veterans visited the Nation’s capital, where they had the opportunity to experience the national war memorials that have been dedicated in their honor.

Honor Flight Chicago, the local hub of the Honor Flight Network, organized the trip. Ford Fund first partnered with Honor Flight in 2011 and since then, Ford has sponsored Honor Flights from Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, Missouri and Illinois. In 2014 alone, Ford supported three flights with a total of over 200 veterans from across the nation, including Chicago.

“Ford is privileged to play a small role in what we hope is a big day of reflection, remembrance and recognition for those who fought to defend freedom, democracy and the American way of life,” said Jim Vella, president Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services in a recent news release.

Ford’s Sponsorship of Honor Flights isn’t the only method through which Ford Motor Company supports our military – in fact, the auto giant has a rich history of commitment to our veterans and active duty military personnel. Ford employs over 5,000 veterans and civilian employees, has provided $9 million to veteran’s organizations since 1974, and also provides support to military and their families through the American Red Cross.
