Five Things Every Car Owner Needs 

Whether you are buying a car for the first time or are an experienced owner of an awesome car, there are some things that every car owner needs for a safe drive. These things ensure that your car stays efficient even many years after purchase.

Monthly Cleaning
A thorough cleaning every month keeps your car in top shape. Thorough cleaning gets rid of dirt, dust and debris that could otherwise damage the paint. A clean car makes you feel good about your vehicle.

Key Vehicle Documents
As a car owner, you must carry some important documents in your car. These include:
· Vehicle manual
· Registration and insurance papers
· Car service receipts
· Emergency contact details

Remember to replace your old insurance with the new copy in case you have renewed recently. You are required by law to carry these documents while driving. They ensure smooth travel as well.

Important Tools
A set of handy tools help you handle emergency situations such as a car breakdown or a flat tire.
  • Always have a tire jack, lug wrench, and spare tire packed together, as each needs the other to work. If your car has locking lug nuts, pack in a lug nut key as well.

  • A tire pressure gauge is a handy little tool to ensure that your car tires are always in good working condition.

    Under-inflated and over-inflated tires can interfere with tire traction and make riding difficult. Monitor tire pressure regularly and maintain them at required PSI levels for safety and performance.

  • Jumper cables are a lifesaver if you are stuck with a flat battery.

  • Have duct tape around to handle leaks, breaks, and other unexpected damages that need instant fixes.

  • Include a strong flashlight, road flares and car hammer too in the tool kit.
Emergency Kit
An emergency kit is a must-have, and especially so if you are traveling with kids. You can prepare your own kit by adding in medical essentials such as bandages, plaster, gloves, antiseptic ointment, gauze pads, and scissors.

There are reliable and affordable readymade car emergency kids that you could buy.

Regular Maintenance
Regular maintenance is important to keep your vehicle's basic components efficient. Such components include engine oil, coolant, power steering and brake fluids, tire pressure, wiper blades, air filters, and brake pads.

Periodic maintenance is also an opportunity to detect car issues before they become expensive repairs.

Five Engine Noises That Require Immediate Attention

As a vehicle owner, you may encounter different engine noises. Some sounds are normal and wear off on their own. There are other noises though that require immediate attention. Ignoring such noises can compromise the safety and performance of your vehicle.

Roaring Noises Emerging During Acceleration
Sometimes, noises emerge only during acceleration. These noises start as small sounds when you press down the gas pedal and gradually increase. If you feel any pulsing sensation or vibration as soon as you hit the gas pedal, then it is also a cause for concern.
The noise could be due to damage to the exhaust system or the transmission system.

Knocking Sounds
Knocking noises present themselves as low deep sounds, or a ping. These noises could be due to any worn-out component in the engine. Knocking usually turns worse as you accelerate.

Hissing Sounds
Hissing noises can occur due to several reasons - an overheated engine, a plugged exhaust system, or a closed catalytic converter.
Hissing noises can also emerge when there is a leak in the engine system, which is causing engine fluids to enter hot exhaust components. Such leakage can damage your engine and even cause fire hazards.

Chirping Noises
A chirping noise can be due to a loose or damaged serpentine belt. It may sometimes become necessary to replace the belt.

A Popping or Rumbling Sound
If a rumbling noise occurs when you are accelerating, then it could indicate a hole in the muffler.

These noises can turn dangerous when they cause harmful fumes to enter the passenger compartment.

Popping sounds could be due to fuel injector leaks, which can result in damage to the engine, poor emissions, or an increase in fuel intake.

A Ticking or Clicking Sound
Some engine components such as camshaft, rocker arms, and timing chains produce a ticking or clicking sound as they work, which is normal. But, if such ticking or clicking is becoming louder gradually, then it is a cause for concern.

If you have not refilled oil for some time now, then engine components may start to wear out or underperform, which could be causing the sounds.

If the problem persists even after a refill, then contact an expert immediately.

If you hear any of the above noises, visit our authorized service center in Tallassee, AL, immediately. We are only a short drive away from Auburn, Wetumka and Montgomery.
If you are searching for a "Ford dealer near me" to get rid of your engine problems, then visit us.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs an Oil Change


 

Fresh and clean engine oil is crucial for maintaining your vehicle's performance and increasing the lifespan of its components. Your owner's manual should tell you the correct time for an oil change.

If a manual is not available, you can always visit our authorized auto center in Tallassee, AL, for expert recommendation. We can change your vehicle oil if needed.

Meanwhile, look out for the following signs regularly. If these signs exist, then do not delay oil change as it can lead to more expensive repairs.

Inconsistent Oil Texture

Over time, engine oil absorbs dirt and other contaminants and becomes darker and dirtier. If you see a change in oil color, check the oil texture as well. As oil absorbs dirt and grime, it loses its initial texture.

If you notice an irregular texture, it could be because the oil has collected a lot of contaminants.

Abnormal Motion during Idling

As oil becomes old, spent, and worn-out, its ability to keep the engine and its components lubricated decreases. As a result, friction between components increases.

This frictional force shows its impact on your vehicle's riding ability. One sign is an abnormal shaking motion or vibration of your vehicle when it is idling.

Dipstick Level Dips Below the Safe Range

If your oil dipstick reaches a level that is below what is considered safe for your vehicle, then get your oil changed immediately. Continuing to use the vehicle at such low levels can lead to permanent engine damage, especially during summer months.

Check your oil dipstick every week, if possible. If not, make it a practice to check the dipstick at least once monthly.

Frequent Stalling of the Engine

In many vehicles, safety features are included to prevent any serious damage to the engine. In such vehicles, the engine stalls off when oil level goes below safety levels.

If you find your vehicle stalling frequently, then dirty oil could be a reason. 

Coolant Meter Shows a High Temperature

The coolant meter shows your vehicle's coolant temperature. High temperatures mean that the coolant is working overtime. Low oil level can cause the engine parts to overheat, which in turn forces the coolant to work overtime to overcome the heat. This causes a spike in the meter reading.

As an authorized service, we provide only genuine auto components, including oil and reliable service. If you live in Auburn, Montgomery, or Wetumpka, visit the Tallassee Ford dealership in Tallassee, AL, for the best deals.

Ford F-150 Towing Capacity

 

Ford F-150 is a class apart when it comes to the towing capacity as it outperforms every other truck in its class. This is not our verdict but those of the experts. What we can assure you, however, is that it will make your life easier as well with features no other truck can claim. The Ford-150 is designed to make tough tasks easy, whether you are on your work schedule or out having fun and recreation.

Towing Capabilities and Other Features

The 3.5L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 is the second generation now with the great tow of 470 pound-feet and 375 horsepower. The advanced feature of the Roll Stability Control™ system available with Ford F-150 is designed to provide trailer sway control. You have several other features that make towing easy. A smart trailer tow connector forewarns you of issues like battery problems, lighting, and connectivity issues. While backing up, Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ will help you synchronize the truck with the trailer. While the 8-inch productivity screen will provide all the trailer information you need, the dynamic hitch assist will help guide the line of sight and direct the hitch to the trailer receiver. The other features include BLIS®, designed to alert you when the vehicle is in your blind spot, while the factory-installed trailer brake controller is designed to synchronize brakes of the truck and the trailer.

Light Body Weight and Strong Engine

An effective way to increase payload is to reduce weight. The F-150 enjoys this unique advantage for its low body weight but high strength that comes from military-grade aluminum alloy. The result of the material used in the construction of its body is the best in class payload rating unique to F-150 models. The power to this vehicle comes from its legendary Ford 5.0L V8.

Tips on Finding the Best Tires for Your Truck


Tires play a major role in maintaining a truck's true performance on the road. But with so many truck tires available in the market, choosing the right pairs can be difficult.

You can always visit our auto service center at Tallassee, AL, to ensure that you have chosen the right tires for your truck. Our technicians have years of experience in choosing truck tires of the highest quality and recommending them for our customers.

Given below are some key factors to consider when buying truck tires:

Check Manufacturer Specifications for the Original Tires

If you are replacing your truck tires for the first time, then take a look at the manufacturer's tire specifications. You can usually see them on the side portion of the original tires.

The original tires were designed in such a way that they would work well with the truck. This means your truck will deliver the best performance when used with tires of the manufacturer's specifications.

Choosing such tires ensures that your vehicle stays in top condition consistently.

Choose Tires according to Truck's Load Capacity

If the truck is going to carry heavy loads and will be on the road daily, then prioritize the tires' stress-bearing capacity. Know how the tires, and thereby the performance of the truck, would be impacted under different loads.

When you choose tires that are compatible with your truck's load-bearing capacity, you can experience smooth performance and a safe ride.

Consider your Truck's Driving Conditions

Specialized tires are designed to suit specific driving conditions. For example, if the truck will be plying normal roads with no great stress on the tires, then all-season tires could work the best. These tires give excellent performance under standard on-road conditions.

But if your truck will be off-road most of the days, then going for off-road tires would be the best option.

Off-road tires are designed specifically to meet rough terrain conditions. They have a distinct tread design, tougher rubber compounds, and features such as stone ejectors, to give you a smooth ride on harsher and dirt-ridden terrains.

Ask for Warranty

Tires backed by warranties give you more peace of mind. A warranty protects you against expenses arising from manufacturing issues. Warranty-backed tires are also highly performance-oriented.

Many manufacturers offer tires with a 7-year warranty with 3 retreads included.

Our auto specialists can recommend the best tires, depending on your truck usage. If you are in or near Wetumpka, Montgomery or Auburn, then visit the Tallassee Ford dealership in Tallassee, AL, for the best deals.

Can the new Ford Mach E compete with Tesla?
 
Ford announced in December last year that they were entering the electric vehicle market with the Mustang Mach E in late 2020. Till now, Tesla has dominated the emerging electric vehicle market, and their new release, the Tesla Model Y, is also set to be launched in the second half of 2020.

The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has already congratulated Ford on entering the EV domain, but how well does Ford's Mach E compare to Tesla's Model Y?

THE SIMILARITIES AND THE DIFFERENCES
The Mach E and the Model Y share a number of features and specifications that make them quite similar to each other:

  • The Mach E is expected to complete a 0-to-60-mph acceleration somewhere in the middle range of 3 as revealed by Ford. Meanwhile, the Model Y can achieve 0-60 mph in 3.5 secs.

  • Both cars are priced similarly. The Mach E starts at $43,895 and goes up to $60,500, depending on the trim you choose. The Model Y starts at $39,000 and can go up to $60,000 too. So both extend multiple options when it comes to their variants.

  • The Mustang Mach E will access car updates over the wireless network, give you the ability to connect your smartphone to the vehicle, and have driver assistance features in the form of Ford's Co-Pilot 360. Models from Tesla have long since made these features standard. Tesla also provides an intelligent driver-assist in their offerings using Autopilot.
  • Both cars will have a 15.5 inch screen inside for your viewing pleasure.
Aside from these similarities, there are some important differences:
  • The Model Y gives you 168 miles of mileage for every 15 minute of charge at one of their many Supercharging Startions. The Mach E gives you 47 miles after charging for ten minutes, which is still quite impressive.

  • It will be easier to charge the Tesla Model Y as they have already developed both their Supercharging Stations as well as built other charging locations across America. The Mach E is the first electric vehicle from Ford, and building a large charging infrastructure for electric vehicles could take time.
Nonetheless, Ford has taken a brave step towards making sustainable energy commonplace. A trusted brand that many people have come to build a connection with over the years, the Mustang Mach E not only competes with Tesla but also provides a glimpse into a future where more manufacturers produce EVs. 

Visit Tallassee Ford in Tallassee, AL for more insights on the Mach-E. We're quite in the vicinity of Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka too.

EVERYDAY COMMUTE
The 2020 Ford Expedition is suitable for everyday commute and it has, in fact, laid down the benchmark for all SUVs of a similar size. The Expedition is available in the XLT, Limited, and Platinum as well as King Ranch trims. Even the base XLT model scores high on safety, utility, as well as style.

POWERFUL ENGINE

SPACIOUS CARGO

Behind the bench, there's 19.3 cu-ft of expanse in the standard XLT version. In the Max model, there's as much as 34.3 cu-ft behind the third-row bench. You can also fold the second-row seats to get up to 79.6 cu-ft of area.

SAFETY
As for safety, the 2020 Ford Expedition passes the federal crash-test with a score of 8 out of 10. There are also numerous safety technologies in this SUV including blind-spot monitoring and the aforementioned automatic emergency braking as well as active lane control.

Ford Fiesta versus Honda Fit
 
Sporty hatchbacks are both affordable and in style thanks to the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit. These are compact sedans that come at a similar price range. But when talking about pure style, the sporty vibe of the Ford Fiesta makes it stand out.

A LOOK AT THE TECHNICALITIES OF THE FORD FIESTA AND HONDA FIT
Both the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit use a front-wheel-drive (FWD) driveline. The Honda Fit equips a 1.5-liter Inline-4, while the Ford Fiesta boasts a 1.6-liter Inline-4 engine - slightly better than the Honda Fit. The Honda Fit produces 130 horsepower and 114 pound-ft of torque, while the Ford Fiesta generates 120 horsepower and 112 ft of torque. The lower horsepower actually gives the Ford Fiesta a more responsive feel than the Honda Fit.

WHICH IS BETTER? - THE FORD FIESTA OR THE HONDA FIT?
The Ford Fiesta is built for anyone looking for a compact sedan that appears breathtaking and performs well. The Honda Fit offers good fuel efficiency, but the Ford Fiesta is the better car for city living. Its dimensions and narrow shape will help you make and manage time through the hustle and bustle of city traffic.

The Honda Fit has good storage space in the passenger area when compared to the Ford Fiesta, but this comes at the expense of passenger capacity. The Honda Fit has a second row equipped with 'Magic Seat' features. 

When you lie the passenger seats flat, you get cargo space of up to 52.7 cubic feet. In comparison, when the same seats are stowed in the Ford Fiesta, you get a total of 25.4 cubic feet of expanse. However, lying the seats down reduces the five-passenger capacity that both these have and brings down both comfort as well as leg space for any passengers who prefers to sit at the back.

The Ford Fiesta makes provisions for cargo space within the car without reducing the level of comfort, however. The car is also available in various appealing colors, and when compared to the Honda Fit, the Ford Fiesta definitely provides more street impact.

Both the Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit are amazing vehicles available at an affordable price range across car dealerships in Montgomery, Auburn, and Weptumka. However, if you are looking for a compact sedan built for city life, the Ford Fiesta is perfect.

Ford Launches SYNC 4!
 

Ford was among one of the first automobile manufacturing companies in the world to create an infotainment system to control media and connectivity in a vehicle. This infotainment system, aptly named Sync, did away with knobs and buttons and introduced tiny touchpads and touch screens for commanding various aspects of the entertainment system. 

Since its establishments almost a decade ago, Ford has continuously worked on its Sync to continue adapting it with the changing times. If the Sync wasn't steadily developing, it might go redundant and wouldn't act as a value-adding feature to the customers of Ford. Now, in 2020, the Sync infotainment system is about to enter its fourth generation, called Sync 4. 

The various new features of the Sync 4 are as follows:

  • Different display and usage according to the vehicle - The look of Sync 4, along with its capabilities, will differ from one model of Ford to another. However, what will remain standard across all its variants is its primary motive - to make life easier for the driver of the car while entertaining all the other passengers.
  • According to experts, the two primary types of display for the Sync 4 will be a 12-inch touchscreen display or a 15.5-inch touchscreen display. 
  • Learning from past usage - With your usage patterns, the Sync 4 has been programmed to learn in order to improve upon suggestions and keep track of changing preferences. 
  • Connectivity with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay - The Sync 4 will also allow for connection with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with the help of wireless Bluetooth connectivity or through a USB cable. 
  • Regular Updates - Ford has decided to undertake regular updates for the Sync 4 system to prevent any lags and bugs from affecting the innovation. 
  • Owner's Manual - For the owner of a new Ford vehicle, figuring out the infotainment system might be a bit of a puzzle and can take quite some time. Keeping this in mind, Ford has designed a manual detailing the precise usage and specialties of Sync 4.

What Should a Basic Ford Service Include?
A basic vehicle service in Tallassee, AL, is essential to maintain the performance and longevity of your car. Professional assistance can identify issues early and fix them accordingly, making your car safe and efficient on the roads.

Though the components of a basic service may vary from provider to provider, here are some common elements:

REPLACING FLUIDS
Your car uses many fluids depending on its type. Some conventional fluids are engine oil, coolant, windscreen washer fluid, battery electrolyte, and clutch and brake fluid. Maintaining these fluids at the right level is vital to keep your car running smoothly.
A basic service checks all these fluids and replaces them if necessary.

TIRE CHECKS
Under-inflated and over-inflated tires pose the risk of tire blowouts, excessive tire wear, and tread and tire separation. Tires need to be maintained at the pressures specified in the manufacturer's manual to prevent premature tire wear and ensure a safer and smoother ride.

Tire checks include wheel alignment checks. If your car is being pulled to one side while driving, then wheel misalignment could be a possible reason, and it needs to be rectified at the earliest.

WIPER BLADE REPLACEMENT
Wiper blades undergo wear over time. They can also be prone to damage if your area experiences harsher climates. A basic service checks wiper blades and recommends a replacement if necessary.

Replace blades if windscreen visibility reduces or if the blades are damaged or worn out.

AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT
A clogged air filter sends impure oil to the engine, which affects engine performance. Heavily clogged filters need to be replaced immediately. If you travel on dusty roads often or are a frequent stop-and-start driver, then your air filter may need regular replacements.

BATTERY CHECKS
A battery may need a replacement if it is old. The terminals need to be checked for corrosion, and the battery fluid needs refills if needed.

A professional car service uses top-quality distilled water for fluid replacement and ensures that the fluid is not overfilled.

SPARK PLUG REPLACEMENTS
Spark plugs are the components that ignite car fuel and start it. They need to be replaced after 30,000 miles roughly. You can also refer to your manual to know when to replace the plugs exactly.

Winter Advisory: How to Be for Harsh Road Conditions

With winter ready to set in. Preparing your vehicle for the season is critical to ensure a safe drive. Harsh winter conditions make roads slippery and accident-prone.

Here are some ways to make your winter smooth and stress-free:


Invest in winter tires

Solid tire grip is key to maintaining good traction on roads during winter. One way to ensure this is to invest in good-quality winter tires. Winter tires help maintain a solid grip. They have solid tread patterns and soft rubber elements.

Check vehicle tire pressure often

It is natural for tires to lose pressure during winter. (Permeation). Low tire pressure will weaken steering actions. This is risky when driving on winter-slippery roads.

Maintain slow speeds

The stopping range of your car can weaken as a result of poor tire friction during the winter. A smooth halt is not possible under such conditions. It is wiser to keep your speed to at least half of that mentioned on the speed limit board for this reason.


Tips to be safe on slippery roads:

  • Maintain lower speeds
  • Avoid sudden stops
  • Keep slow around corners
  • Maintain enough separation with the vehicle ahead



Keep your gas tank half full always

Check your gas often and maintain it at a half-full level. This way, your vehicle will not let you down when you need it the most and prevents the risk of getting stuck.


Schedule a winter service

A complete winter service by a professional is critical. A professional service checks all key vehicle issues that can be risky for a winter drive. These include:


  • Damaged windshield and wiper blades
  • Inadequate antifreeze in the engine
  • Insufficient tire tread and tire pressure
  • Defroster working condition
  • Low battery
  • Oil changes
  • Belts and hoses
  • Brakes
  • Exhaust system
  • Ignition
  • Visibility of vehicle lights, including brake lights, headlights, taillights, and turn indicators.

Benefits of Changing Engine Oil On Time

 

Protecting any vehicle requires regular maintenance, and changing your engine oil at frequent intervals is one of the most crucial tasks a person can carry out to extend the life of their vehicle. Changing engine oil can also save himself/herself from the inconvenience of breakdowns and repairs. Let's take a look a look at the benefits of changing the engine oil on time.

 

  1. Your engine will run smoothly - Oil is fantastic at lubricating, cleaning, and cooling an engine's moving parts. It prevents damage to an engine when the metal parts rub against each other. All of these components are cooled as the friction heats them. Oil also collects dust and debris that could get into an engine and carries that material to the oil filter. However, over time, the vehicle could lose its ability to do all of the above - a critical reason why regular top-offs are mandatory.
  2. Your gas mileage will be better - Fresh oil helps engines run smoothly, which allows the car to get more out of the fuel - which results in better gas mileage.
  3. Your engine will last longer - An engine that receives fresh oil periodically will last longer than an engine that doesn't. As already mentioned, the oil loses its ability to safeguard an engine from wear and tear over extended durations. If you don't change the oil in due time, this friction can damage parts that have been engineered to fit perfectly together, which could lead to leakage between the pistons and engine block, for example. 
  4. Compliance with the manufacturer's warranty obligations - Warranties usually require routine maintenance. If the owner fails to do so, the warranty is null and void. Oil changes in Tallassee, AL, are one of these mandated items.
  5. Your engine will emit less harmful emissions - Fresh oil is much better at absorbing particles and is less likely to burn, which results in lesser pollution.

 

If you live in Montgomery, Auburn, or Weptumka and would like to know more about changing your engine oil on time, head on over to Tallassee Ford in Tallassee, AL, the staff over there will answer any questions you have with a smile on their faces.

Ford understands the importance of seatbelts, and instead of just letting it be, it has added new seatbelt technology to ensure that you are buckled up safe.

The new belt monitor safety technology in the Ford Ranger is especially useful for families with young children. The innovation constantly monitors seatbelt usage for both the front as well as the rear passengers. If a belt is undone, the system lets the driver know which belt unbuckled. 

The smart seatbelt technology lets the driver ensure the safety of all occupants without taking his/her eyes off the road. 

Ford's electrical systems engineer, Paul Kula, said that the company wanted to make sure that everyone who put on a seatbelt kept it on. He also said that Ford hoped that this endeavour to make the Belt Monitor standard in the Ford Ranger gave drivers that extra peace of mind.


What makes the Ford Ranger's smart seatbelt technology different from any other seatbelt technology?

While other seatbelt systems monitor the use of seatbelts only as the driver starts pulling away from the curb, the Ford Ranger's seatbelt system stays alert throughout the ride. Also, the system's sensors scattered throughout the cabin let the driver know which seatbelt was removed. The driver can then alert the respective passenger to buckle up again.

Now, the 2019 Ford Ranger in Tallassee is not just any other off-roading adventure machine. With its added safety belt technology, it is also a much safer vehicle with its standard smart driver-assist technologies. This just goes to show that Ford is committed to passenger safety and not just the driver's protection. 


The Smart Seatbelt Technology is standard in the Ford Ranger in Montgomery as well as the Ford Ranger in Auburn. The smart seatbelt technology is also available in Wetumpka Ford Rangers. 

The ranger's seatbelt monitor is the first rear seatbelt reminder system used by Ford in its trucks. The Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator already sport the Belt Monitor. However, Ford has said that it hopes to ensure that the technology is available for its entire North American line-up.

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 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 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.
