The NHTSA Gives the 2014 Ford Focus Top Safety Ratings

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently gave the 2014 Ford Focus top safety ratings.  The Ford Focus is no stranger to high safety ratings from the NHTSA, since it was just maintaining its status at the top.  The federal government put together a new car safety rating program, which the Ford Focus, both the sedan and hatchback models, as well as the Ford Focus Electric, continued to earn a 5 star rating for their overall vehicle score.

So what exactly makes the 2014 Ford Focus so safe?

The Ford’s AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control and anit-lock brake system, which is standard in the Focus across the board, is the main reason for such a high safety rating.  It is constantly keeping track of the road conditions and how the driver responds to those conditions, which in turn it will adjust itself to go along with the driver.  Sounds pretty cool to us!

The 2015 Ford F-150 Becomes First Light-Weight Pickup to Offer Snow Plow Prep Option

These winter months seem to be stretching on forever and we are sure you have probably wished for a better way to clear your driveway and the roads of snow other than with a shovel or waiting for the city to clear it for you.  Well Ford heard everyone’s cries regarding the winter blues, and they answered with an ingenious option added to the front of the 2015 Ford F-150: the snow plow prep option.

Eric Peterson, the Ford F-150 marketing manager, stated “the new 2015 F-150 is the toughest F-150 ever, and by using more high-strength steel in its frame and advanced materials in the body, we’ve made the new truck up to 700 pounds lighter.  This leads to more capability and better handling, which is exactly what you’d want for plowing.  Adding a snow plow prep kit to our lineup helps ensure our customers have even more tools at their disposal to get the job done.”

Whether it’s actually for a business or you just want to help your neighborhood by clearing the streets, the snow plow prep option for the new 2015 Ford F-150 sounds like a great idea.  Do you like the idea but can’t see yourself ever using it?  Not a problem, come on over to Shults Ford of Harmarville and we can help you find the perfect F-150 to fit your needs!
