Coming soon to the Pittsburgh International Race Complex is the 2015 Ford EcoBoost Challenge! The EcoBoost Challenge begins March 7th, as the automaker criss-crosses the country, giving Ford fans and potential customers a unique opportunity to get behind the wheel of the automaker’s most popular models.
During the event, participants will have a chance to test drive vehicles like the all-new Edge and Expedition as well as the 2015 Escape, Fusion Hybrid, and Transit Connect Wagon. In addition, the famed and freshly redesigned 2015 F-150 and Mustang will be on hand for test drives.
“With EcoBoost engines now available across 100 percent of our U.S. light-duty lineup, the EcoBoost Challenge lets consumers experience this innovative technology that helps Ford deliver better fuel economy with a more engaging driving experience than the competition,” said Michele Bartlett, group marketing manager for Ford’s large cars and SUVs. “Not only is the EcoBoost Challenge a lot of fun, but getting people in the driver’s seat is the best way for them to experience the craftsmanship, innovation and performance of the Ford lineup.”
The event will also offer lessons in driving a vehicle equipped with a manual transmission, as well as the opportunity for participants to win a 2015 Ford Edge.
The tour’s pit stop in Pittsburgh is on May 30th, so be sure to mark your calendars and register for the event. We at Shults Ford of Harmarville can’t wait for Ford’s EcoBoost Challenge to come to town.
Recently, the Bierker family was presented a Warrior Quilt by Paul Letso, one of our very own Shults Ford of Harmarville employees. Rachele Beirker entered to win the quilt for the Mother’s Day Race for the Cure and they are definitely excited to be able to display this Warrior Quilt in their home and know that people are everywhere are fighting for a cure for breast cancer..
So what exactly is a Warrior Quilt?
The Neighborhood Ford Store has partnered with the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure for the Annual Warrior Quilt Project. Warrior Quilts are made of fabric squares that are decorated at a Neighborhood Ford Store booth at the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure. The squares are filled with messages of hope and encouragement; they honor breast cancer survivors, as well as remembering loved ones who have passed. These quilts remind us all how many people breast cancer affects, but they also show us that we are doing everything we can to defeat it.
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, there are several quilts donated to across the United States, to hospitals, clinics, and breast cancer treatment centers.
We were so proud to be able to present a Warrior Quilt to Rachele Bierker and her family and if you would like to find out more about how you can help in the fight against breast cancer, visit the Neighborhood Ford Store booth and the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure!
