2015 Mustang is One Powerful Pony

With over half a century of production, the Ford Mustang has long been an American muscle car icon. Decade after decade, the Ford engineering team has been hard at work improving the Pony, always striving to create a more powerful vehicle that always provides the best ride possible. The all-new 2015 Mustang from Ford is no different, this year making drastic improvements to the car’s transmission as well as power-to-weight ratios. With these kind of improvements, this may be one of the best Mustangs yet.2015MUSTANG_SKV_5758

If you’re thinking about purchasing a new 2015 Mustang, you’ll first have to ask yourself which engine you prefer. The smallest of the engines, the 2.3L EcoBoost V6, brings turbocharging and direct-injection fuel system to the Mustang while boasting the best-ever power density from a Ford engine. This powerful yet fuel-efficient engine packs quite a bit a power, clocking in at 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque. If you want to stick with a V6 but aren’t interested in the EcoBoost, you also have the option of a larger 3.7L V6 engine. This standard engine delivers 300 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, slightly less than it’s eco-friendly companion.

Check out what CNET.com on Cars has to say about the new engine & other changes for the 2015 Mustang. 

Last but not least, the 2015 Mustang will also be available with the almighty 5.0L V8 engine that serves up a heart 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ford team has been hard at work on their new-generation V8 engine, focusing on making improvements that were evident after the development of the special-edition 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Such developments include: larger intake valves, larger exhaust valves, revised intake & exhaust camshafts, stiffer valve springs, sinter forged connecting rods, redesigned piston tops and more. Talk about upgrades! Regardless of which of the three sizes you choose, the Mustang will undoubtedly deliver the top-notch power and performance 15FordMustang_01_HRyou’ve come to expect from the American classic.

The engine is not the only thing that Ford has been working hard to improve. Like many muscle car fanatics, Mustang owners have developed an affinity for shifting for themselves. With full manual or updated automatic transmission options, Mustang drivers will be able to select the transmission system that best suits their preference. The revised manual transmission contains a new shift linkage design for simpler engagement and increased precision. Redesign in shift lever position has also allowed for an easier 15FordMustang_17_HRshifting experience.

If a manual transmission doesn’t fit your lifestyle, Ford has created a proprietary automatic shifting system that allows the driver to occasionally control shifting via wheel-mounted paddle-shifters. The SelectShift six-speed automatic transmission features a redesigned case that helps reduce weight and optimized clutches for reduced friction.

Updated engines and transmissions make this one unforgettable Mustang. Though it wont be released until later this year, you can pre-order your very own 2015 Ford Mustang at Prestige Ford’s website. Visit www.PrestigeGarland.com to learn more, or stop by Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland (also serving Rockwall, Mesquite, Richardson, Grapevine, and greater Dallas area) for a test drive!

Ford Cars & Ketchup: More Alike Than You Thought

Ketchup & your Ford probably have more in common than you think. The biomaterials engineering team at Ford Motor Company has been hard at work with a variety of different industries in an attempt to create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to plastics production.

The most notable partner in Ford’s eco-efforts is H.J. Heinz Co., the famed ketchup producer. Ford and Heinz have teamed up to help turn tomato skins and fibrous tomato by-products into floormats for Ford vehicles. Heinz reports that over 2 million pounds  of fresh tomatoes are used each year in the ketchup-making process, creating a perfect opportunity for Ford to kick-start their alternative plastics initiative.

However, this isn’t Ford’s first go-around at creating a environmentally sustainable plastic for their vehicles. Ford uses recycled blue jeans and t-shirts for interior padding in the Escape. They also feature wheat straw in storage bins for the Flex, plastics water bottles in the Focus Electric’s seat covers and hibiscus plant fiber in their door bolsters.

And it doesn’t stop there. Ford is also working on turning dandelions into trim and tires, recycled currency into coin holders and soy oil into seat cushions. It’s all part of Ford’s effort to reduce overall vehicle weight and boost fuel efficiency through use of alternative, nonpetroleum-based materials. Couple these innovations with Ford’s growing EcoBoost line and it’s easy to see how much Ford values environmental sustainability.

To stay up to date on the most recent Ford news and updates, like us on Facebook or visit our website at www.PrestigeGarland.com! You can also stop by the dealership to see the eco-friendly Fords that we have available. We hope to see you soon!

2015 Ford Edge to Challenge BMW, Audi

2015 edge3The 2015 Ford Edge is already making noise in the automotive news and financial news world. Popular website The Motley Fool (Fool.com) has something to tell you about the forth-coming car and why it may be taking on German-luxury automakers like Audi and BMW.

Ford has long been known as a reliable car manufacturer that offers a lot of car for not a lot of money. They hope to take these strategies a step further overseas with as they gear up for the market debut of the 2015 Ford Edge. Ford is aiming to rebrand the Edge as part of a strategy to encroach on European luxury dealers like BMW and Audi. Like Fool.com mentions, many Americans may be quick to refute the idea that Ford could compete against the likes of BMW and Audi in their our backyard. However, John Rosevear, senior auto specialist at Fool.com, insists that is not the case.

2015 edge backWhile the exterior of the newest Edge resembles that of this year’s model, the architecture and engineering within the vehicle has undergone some substantial transformations. The 2015 Edge is based on the same advanced architecture that the current Ford Fusion is built on, allowing Ford engineers to implement a wide array of luxury features including leather seats, advanced audio system and several high-tech safety improvements.

Fool.com believes this is great news for Ford in the European market. In North America, the Edge is viewed as a mainstream, middle-of-the-pack crossover that offers great value but limited luxury. However, Ford’s introduction of the all-new 2015 Edge to the European market is being marketed as a fuel-efficient, sporty-yet-luxurious alternative to German giants 2015 edge2BMW and Audi. Though it may not be realistic to expect that Ford is staging a complete takeover of the European luxury crossover market, it’s reasonably safe to expect that they’ll be snatching a fair amount of sales away from market leaders.

While the 2015 Edge isn’t set to be released until the first quarter of next year, you can stay up to date by visiting www.PrestigeGarland.com. You can find 2014 Edge models alongside F-150s, Fusions, Mustangs and more at our dealership off 635 and Shiloh Rd. See you soon!

New Fords Among MSN’s Top 4-Cylinders

2015 Mustang EcoBoost 2014 Focus ST 2014 Fiesta STWho doesn’t love a great car that is fuel efficient, too… check out some of the new Fords that made MSN Autos’ “Best of the 4-Bangers” list. Here at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland (also serving Rockwall, Mesquite, Richardson, and greater Dallas area) we have a huge selection of cars, trucks and SUVs that can help you save at the pump.

#3- 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost

With a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, this Mustang gives you a lot more bang for your buck. With its variable intake and exhaust valve timing, a twin-scroll

turbocharger, and a direct fuel injection system, the 2015 Mustang delivers an incredible 305 horsepower coupled with 300 lb-ft of torque. And thanks to the EcoBoost engine, this car will save you cash at the pump without sacrificing the muscle you expect from a Mustang. Look for it late 2014.

#7- 2014 Ford Focus ST

This speedy ride is a result of Ford’s effort to challenge the Volkswagen GTI. Judging by the specs, it certainly appears that the GTI is being put to the test. Outfitted with a 2.0-liter all-alumnimum EcoBoost engine, the ultra-light Focus ST is capable of going from zero to 60mph in under six seconds. Like the 2015 Mustang, the Focus ST features a direct injection system and a low-inertia turbocharger, both of which contribute to the car’s 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. With an EPA-estimated 26 mpg (city and highway combined) and SelectShift transmission, the Focus ST gives the feel sports car without guzzling all your gas.

#8- 2014 Ford Fiesta ST

Like the Focus ST, this car brings a hearty serving of speed and power without costing you an arm and a leg to fill up your tank. The slightly smaller, 1.6-liter engine is comparable to that of the Focus ST, clocking in at 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque.  That being said, what the Fiesta ST lacks in speed and power it makes up for in fuel economy and control. EPA-estimated 26/35mpg (city/highway) means you spend less time at the pump. Add in Electric Power-Assisted Steering and the AdvanceTrac system with Electronic Stability Control and you’ve got the powerful car with fantastic control that won’t make you empty your wallet every time you need gas.

Find these fuel-efficient Fords among our vast selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs over at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland (located off Shiloh Rd.). Browse and shop anytime at www.prestigegarland.com.

Jimmy Fallon Loves the Ford F-150 King Ranch

We at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland (also serving Rockwall, Mesquite, Plano, Richardson, and the greater Dallas-Ft.Worth area) love our Ford trucks and we think the King Ranch is one of the best, but did you know that Jimmy Fallon drives a Ford F-150? Curious what he really thinks about it? Check out this short “Ask Jimmy” video to hear for yourself, and see why Jimmy needs your help!

Like Jimmy, we agree that the F-150 King Ranch is “awesome”! After selecting the “Blue Jeans” paint color and accompanying “Pale Adobe” lower panels, Mr. Fallon was quite amused that his new F-150 resembled someone wearing a blue shirt and khakis. However, the enamoring paint job is just the beginning of a long list of features that Mr. Fallon is loving about his brand new Ford truck.

Jimmy was also quick to mention that the “sound system is killer”. With a 700-watt, 10-speaker Sony Sound System, it’s evident why it earned Jimmy’s praise. The acoustically-positioned, fine-tuned speakers deliver anScreen202014-04-01209.36.24 AM audio experience, allowing the driver to fully enjoy their favorite tunes as they cruise around in their F-150 King Ranch. The F-150 King Ranch also comes standard with HD radio, auxiliary audio input and satellite radio capability. Don’t forget, Jimmy needs your help creating a custom country playlist to best leverage these features!

Jimmy was also a fan of the SYNC and MyFord Touch systems standard on the 2014 F-150 King Ranch. Ford’s SYNC technology powered by Microsoft is incredible software that Ford has integrated into their line-up of vehicles. It’s designed to create a safe driving atmosphere in our technology driven society. Once your smartphone is paired to your SYNC system with MyFord, you are able to stream music, make phone calls, receive text messages plus many more features.

Did we mention all the interior features that Jimmy loves? No buttons to push or levers to pull if you want ore cargo space. Simply use one hand to fold up the mechanically articulating rear seats against the back of the cab. With additional minor features like a heated steering wheel, heated/cooled front seats, and adjustable pedals, the F-150 King Ranch managed to grab Jimmy’s attention in his quest for a pick-up.

For your own 2014 F-150 King Ranch just like Jimmy’s, head over to Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland. Our award-winning team is ready to help you find the Truck (or car!) of your dreams. You can stop by the dealership at 3601 S. Shiloh Road for a test drive or up-close look at any of the vehicles in our inventory, including our customized RAD-Rides vehicles! You can also browse our inventory online by visiting www.PrestigeGarland.com. See you soon!
