We’ve asked our customers what their favourite features are in their new rides. Here are the top 5 they think you can’t live without!
1. Heated AND Cooled Leather Seats:
You think you’ve experienced it all because your current vehicle has heated leather seats. You aren’t getting into a cold car in our well below zero winter months, and you aren’t complaining of a sore back after a long car ride – but what if we told you that you can remain cool and comfortable in the summer months too? Ford’s heated AND cooled leather seats do just that!
If you have yet to experience this feature then seriously, come by and ask us to pull up a truck so you can witness it in action. It is something unexpected, and well, magical. Not only do we have some crazy cold winters, but our summers can get out of this world warm and leave you feeling uncomfortable too. This way you get the best of both worlds.
2. Reverse Backup Camera & Sensing System:
I know some of you are old school and think that having a reverse backup camera is pointless, and you think you can rely on your trusty old rear view mirror and simple shoulder checks, but this system is so much more than just a reverse backup camera and a couple of beepers.
Ever find yourself struggling while trying to line your hitch up with your holiday trailer or your toy hauler? The reverse camera engages as soon as you put your vehicle in reverse – you will line up perfectly with your trailer saving yourself the time of running to the house to get a spotter or jumping in and out re-aligning yourself until you get it right.
The reverse backup camera and sensing system is un-noticeable on your vehicle as well, meaning you aren’t sacrificing in style. There are four tiny sensors located appropriately on your rear bumper, and the camera is mounted discretely under the Ford emblem on your tailgate. If you are interested in more information about this great feature please give us a call or come in for a test drive on one of our many stock units that display this feature.
3. Active Park Assist:
Talk about stress reduction! By the simple press of a button your car is ready to parallel park itself (that’s right – itself) into virtually any appropriate parking stall. You don’t even need to find that appropriate parking stall yourself! All you do is press the button and active park assist will alert you when it has located the perfect parallel parking spot. Then you simply take your hands off the wheel and listen to the system prompting you to shift gears and control the brake and accelerator pedals. It is that easy. A perfect parallel park every time, stress free every time. Cool!
4. 911 Assist:
If you’ve ever driven a GMC you are familiar with OnStar. You are familiar with the monthly fee of having this security feature in your vehicle. Well with Ford’s 911 Assist you get the safety and security of knowing that if you are in a collision help will be immediately on the way, without worrying about a monthly fee. That’s right! It is a FREE feature on Ford vehicles.
911 Assist works by Bluetooth connecting itself to your mobile device. It alerts emergency response personnel at the moment of impact or an airbag being deployed. It GPS tracks your exact location and is able to send emergency personnel to the scene right away.
One of our customers was recently in a collision and said she couldn’t believe how effective this feature truly is. She tells her friends and family all the time how important and great this feature is and says she would never buy another car again without it. Oh yeah, did we mention it is free?
5. Keyless Entry Keypads:
Ever lock your keys in your car? How annoying is it to contact someone to bring you your spare or to get a hold of a tow truck to come help you out? Or even more annoying – let’s say you lock your phone in your car with your keys. Now what?
Keyless entry keypads are here to save the day! Simply input your 5-digit code (either dealer provided or personally selected by you) and voila- you are back in and ready to roll.
We have had several customers call us and praise their life-saving keyless entry keypads from their children playing games on them, their dogs accidentally stepping on the lock button, or themselves accidentally hitting lock with their hands, and we agree. We think they are the greatest!
