Simple Tips For Protecting Your Vehicle In The Summer

Come summer and your Ford could take a beating from Tallassee's oppressive heat. Here are some summer protection tips Ford recommends.

Coolant

Check the strength of the coolant. If the coolant level is low, your Ford could overheat. Never check the radiator's coolant level when the engine is hot - steam and boiling-hot coolant could spurt out and burn you. Instead, wait for your vehicle to completely cool down before checking the coolant. While water is an effective liquid to add with your coolant, antifreeze along with the coolant will protect your Ford's radiator from corrosion.

Air conditioner and cooling fan

Ensure the air conditioner blows cold air and is working efficiently in hot weather. If the air conditioner is not blowing cool air as it should, there could be a leak or your vehicle may be low on the refrigerant.

Ensure the cooling fan works when you turn on the air conditioner to the maximum. If the fan does not come on, you may need to replace it. A defective fan motor will cause your Ford's engine to overheat. Before changing the fan, ensure the electric and relay connections are working properly.

Interiors

Have you noticed how hot the dashboard gets when you leave your Ford out in the sun? Protect your Ford's dashboard from heating up by parking it in the shade. Use a windshield sun protector to keep your car cool and also protect it from damage. Install seat covers to ensure the expensive leather seats are protected from the heat and also to keep the seats cool. Leather seats should also be treated with a conditioner to prevent tears and cracks that are caused by intense heat.

Exteriors

The surging heat of Tallassee during the summer months can cause the paint to crack. Wash your Ford often and ensure you dry it completely after every wash.  Washing your Ford regularly and dabbing it with a soft cloth will remove summer dust that settles on your car and scratches the paint. A coat of wax will protect your Ford from ultraviolet rays.

Follow these quick and easy tips to keep your Tallassee Ford cool and in good condition.


Ford Safety Features

Safety and security are features in any vehicle that can change a buyer's decision regarding a purchase. When it comes to Ford automobiles, the manufacturing giant has always gone out of its way to ensure that every one of its models is packed with the latest and the best safety features.

Ford Safe and Smart Package

The Ford Safe and Smart Package that's standard in some models of Ford, such as the Ford Escape 2019, includes:

Front rain-sensing windshield wipers - These sensors are driver-assisted and ensure rain does not get in the way of your vision of the road.

Blindspot information system with cross-traffic alert - The blind spot information system uses radar sensors to detect vehicles in your blind spot. Indicator lights in the relevant exterior mirrors warn you of these vehicles. The cross-traffic alert uses radar sensors too to detect vehicles behind you when you are reversing. The system sends you visual/audio alerts to alert you of any vehicles that are up to 15 yards from you.

Adaptive cruise control - You have full control in deciding the distance you want to maintain from the vehicle ahead of you. When traffic slows down, the system alerts you and the vehicle automatically slows down to ensure the distance you set is maintained.

Forward collision warning with brake support - The system will warn you of any potential collision with a vehicle in front of you. In case you don't react in time, the brakes will power up and provide full responsiveness when you do break.

Lane-keeping system - When you choose the lane-keeping system alert, the system automatically alerts you when you drive your vehicle out of a lane. The steering wheel vibrates to get your attention and get you back on track when you drift too close to a lane marker. The Lane-keeping aid mode will then automatically guide you back into the lane. You can combine both the modes and the steering torque will first be activated before the steering wheel vibrates to get your attention.

These are just some of the safety features Ford has added to its new cars to ensure you and your loved ones are safe.


Comparing Trim Levels of 2019 Ford Edge

The 2019 Ford Edge is available in four models or trim levels, with each outdoing the other in specs and trims. Available as the 2019 Edge SE, 2019 Edge SEL, 2019 Edge Titanium, and 2019 Edge ST, each model has something different to offer. Here is a brief comparison of these trim levels.

Engines

The SE (basic model), SEL, and Titanium trims have the same Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost engine that delivers 22 mpg within city limits and 29 mpg on the highway. The ST sports a standard 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine that gives 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

Drivetrain

The first three models - SE, SEL, and Titanium - also have front-wheel drivetrains, while intelligent all-wheel drive disconnect is an option. The ST has a standard AWD drivetrain.

Advanced technology

The SE, SEL, and Titanium trims have standard intelligent access with push-button start, electric power-assisted steering, torque vectoring control, and remote keyless entry system. The SEL, Titanium, and ST models also sport the SecuriCode keyless entry keypad.

Wireless charging pad, remote start system, hands-free, foot-activated liftgate are optional in the SEL model but standard in the Titanium model. Also, the ST model offers a wireless charging pad, remote start system, and hands-free, foot-activated liftgate features as options.

Audio

The basic SE and SEL models are fitted with a standard AM/FM stereo. A premium 9-speaker audio system is available for the SEL model, and the Titanium and ST models come fitted with a standard B&O premium sound system by Bang & Olufsen.

Ford Co-Pilot Technology

All the models of the 2019 Ford Edge are fitted with Ford Co-Pilot that includes auto high-beam headlamps, wiper-activated auto-lamps, rain-sensing wipers, a blind-spot information system with cross-traffic alert, lane keeping system, traction control, auto start-stop technology, hill start assist, SOS post-crash alert system, roll stability and curve control, and rear view cameras.

The SEL and Titanium models come with standard adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go. In addition, the Titanium model has several available systems such as park assist, evasive steering assist, and a front 180-degree camera with split view and washer.

The Titanium and ST offer the same Ford Co-Pilot Technology features.


AWD vs. 4WD vs. 2WD Vehicles

When buying a car, one of the decisions you have to make is whether you want an AWD, 4WD, or a 2WD drivetrain in your vehicle. Each of these systems has its own advantages and is created for specific terrains. Understanding how they affect driving will help you buy the right car.

AWD or all-wheel drive implies that the engine feeds power to every corner of the car. AWD can provide greater traction during acceleration. Power is driven to either the front set or rear set of wheels. So if there's any slippage of one axle, the power is diverted to the other axle. AWDs are common in SUVs, some types of cars, and also in minivans.

-       Driving on sloppy and uneven road conditions

-      Driving on minimum to moderate off-road terrains

-      Driving through sand, loose gravel, mud and other loose surfaces

-       Driving through rapidly changing conditions

-        Driving through ice and snow

4WD or four-wheel drive is often confused with all-wheel drive, but they aren't the same. True, they both engage all four wheels, but in the four-wheel drive the transfer case connects to the transmission and splits power between the rear and front wheels.

Four-wheel-drive systems have low and high gear ranges. The new variants are either full-time 4WD, automatic, or part-time 4WD. Vehicles that sport a 4WD part-time system have the disadvantage of not being fit for dry pavements when in this mode. 4WD is also most often used on large SUVs designed for off-road driving.

-       Driving through deep water

-       Climbing over rocks and boulders

-       Climbing steep hills

2WD or two-wheel drive is a drive system in which either the front wheels (FWD) or the rear wheels (RWD) are driven. RWD is ideal when you want better performance. However, they don't do very well in bad weather conditions. On the other hand, FWD is good for driving in bad weather conditions.

-       Driving through mild climates

-       Driving through places with little or occasional snow or rain

Choose the drivetrain wisely. While you might not notice the difference while driving, you don't want to end up with poor performance or poor gas mileage because you ignored the drivetrain.

RAM Towing 1500 vs. 2500 vs. 3500

For first time buyers, choosing the right truck to meet all their needs may be intimidating. There are a number of specifications and you can hardly be sure as to what you should go for. But when it comes to trucks, there is one most important purpose that it has to serve - towing heavy loads. So no matter what other specifications you want in your new truck, the towing capacity has to be enough to fulfil your requirements.

RAM pickup trucks are one of the best in the US market currently and if you have been meaning to buy a RAM truck, you would already know there are three models available - the RAM 1500, RAM 2500, and Ram 3500.

Although the old way of categorizing these models would be, half ton, three-quarter ton, and one ton trucks, respectively, RAM trucks can tow much more than their supposed categories. So don't get misled by these old designations.

The Ram 1500 is offered with three choices for engines - a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6, a 5.7 liter HEMI, and a 3.0 liter EcoDiesel engine. All of these offer a good balance of performance and economy for light commercial and consumer use.

On the other hand, engine choices in the heavy duty Ram 2500 and RAM 3500 include a 5.7 liter HEMI, a 6.4 liter HEMI, and a 6.7 liter Cummins Turbo Diesel, which can run on maximum load for hours on end.

All three models of RAM trucks are obviously designed to tow and carry different loads. While the RAM 1500 is a light weight carrying truck mostly marketed as a light commercial or consumer vehicle, the RAM 2500 and RAM 3500 are both meant for heavy duty commercial purposes.

The rated towing capacity of the RAM 1500 is 9,160 lbs. For the RAM 2500, it is 13,890 lbs, and comes in at 13,910 lbs for the RAM 3500 . The payload capacities are also different, rated at 1,500 lbs, 3,060 lbs, and 4,080 lbs for the RAM 1500, 2500, and 3500 models, respectively.

Knowing the different load carrying capacities of each model, it will be easier for you to decide which one of these three will best serve your purpose.

The Chrysler 300 is the company's flagship sedan known for its yesteryears' look of extroverted, outsized sedans.  The New 2019 Chrysler 300 is integrated with all modern tech features, from infotainment to driver assistance.

The full size sedan is available in four trim levels - 300 Touring, 300S, 300 Limited and 300C. The base trim is decently equipped with quite a few standard features. The 300S, though, comes with a few more features and a better performance.

The 300 Limited is a more comfort-oriented model while the top of the line 300C comes with the most number of standard features and a V8 engine as well.

The standard engine in the Chrysler 300 Touring, S, and Limited trims is a 3.6-liter V6 offering 292 hp and 260 lb-ft. The same engine in the 300S, though, produces a little more power - 300 hp and 264 lb-ft to be precise.

The standard transmission with these engines is an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard on these trims and all-wheel drive is optional.

New 2020 Jeep Gladiator

After making us all wait for more than two decades, Jeep has finally come up with its first look of Wrangler-turned-into-pickup truck, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Everyone had been wishing for this for quite long now and the result looks more or less promising. 

This one is made for all those off-roading enthusiasts who love driving on rugged terrains towing that off-road trailer behind them. From mud to rocks to angles, the New 2020 Jeep Gladiator can do it all and doesn't even need a trailer.

The New 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes in four trim levels - Sport, Sport S, Overland, and Rubicon. Every Gladiator has as standard a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, rated at 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard with this engine and ZF's 8-speed automatic is optional.

There will soon be a turbocharged 3.0 liter diesel V-6 with 260 hp and 442 lb-ft paired exclusively with the 8-speed automatic, available in 2020.

The New 2020 Jeep Gladiator has been eliminated of all the 4x4 solid axle related tossing and turning that all older Jeeps experienced on uneven terrain, making the ride more calm and comfortable. 

Gladiators can tow up to 7650 pounds with the Sport trim level when equipped with the Max Tow package. A Rubicon is rated to tow 7000 pounds when equipped with the automatic transmission. An Overland or Sport trim with a manual transmission and no tow package can still tow about 4000 pounds.

The interiors are also refurbished with infotainment touchscreens in either the 7" or 8.4" sizes. The rear seats are foldable as the seatbacks fold flat and the seat bottoms fold up. When both are deployed to make a seat, more rear legroom is available in the 2020 Jeep Gladiator than in any other mid-size truck.

The exteriors are very similar to the Wrangler with the addition of a 5 feet long pickup bed. The windscreen folds down flat and both soft and hard top options are available.

Here's An Overview of the Latest 2019 Ford Fusion


The mid-size Fusion series from Ford has been the favorite of many sedan-lovers for quite some time now. Visit a Ford showroom, and you will be able to check out the 2019 Ford Fusion in Tallassee. The carmaker has introduced this lineup with a couple of tweaks-all of them quite appealing to a discerning auto-savvy buyer.

What's new?

Ford has certainly simplified the line-up this time. The trims with the gas engine are S, SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport; hybrid trims are SE, SEL, and Titanium; and plug-in hybrid Energi trims are SEL and Titanium. The SEL trim level returns this year, replacing the SE Luxury model.

The carmaker has refreshed the 2019 Fusion's front and rear styling and launched two new wheel designs along with new color options. The second-lowest SE trim comes with a 1.5-liter turbo-four engine as standard.

The plug-in Energi model has a redesigned battery pack, which allows you an all-electric driving range from twenty-one to twenty-five miles.  The 2019 Ford Fusion also has new drive assist packages of the carmaker-Co-Pilot360 Assist and Co-Pilot360 Protect.

How does the 2019 Ford Fusion look?

On the exterior, the Fusion has minor tweaks compared to the 2018 version. The most prominent changes are the front grille and the front fog lights. The Titanium trim gets a chrome mesh, while the lower models come with a chrome five-bar design.

The rear portion of the Fusion gets a redesigned trunk lid and the power of LED taillights. The sedan can accommodate 16-cubic feet cargo in the trunk, but the hybrid models can carry less than 12-cubic feet of cargo because of the built-in battery pack. However, the interior changes are even less visible than the exterior upgrades. The front legroom is 44.3 inches, while the rear legroom is 38.3 inches.

Performance

The base 2.5-liter I-4 engine generates 175-horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque and is only found in the base S trim. Now standard on the SE trim is a 181-horsepower, 185-pound-feet 1.5-liter turbo-four engine.

However, you can also find a more powerful 245-horsepower, 275 pound-feet 2.0-liter turbo-four engine version of the 2019 Ford Fusion in Tallassee. The all-wheel-drive Sport model packs a potent 2.7-liter turbocharged V-6 that produces 325- horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

The plug-in Energi and Hybrid models have a 2.0-liter I-4 engine coupled with an electric motor and supported by a CVT.
