New Ford Vehicles Focus on Delivering Quality

News about new Ford models occasionally comes from unexpected quarters, and this is one of those times. Two new developments underscore the quality of new Ford trucks and vans, as well as the technological innovation at the company’s heart. And some of the news is being made not far from Palmetto Ford Truck Sales.

We start with news in Trucks, which reports that specialty truck builder Oshkosh Corporation — which specializes in commercial and severe-duty trucks, often based on other companies’ designs and platforms — is collaborating with Ford Motor Company to bid on the United States Postal Service’s Next Generation Delivery Vehicle Program. The truck, based on the Ford Transit cargo van, has a distinct advantage over many of the other entrants; its higher cargo area allows drivers to stand while loading and unloading.

Testing is currently being done in areas that will push each entrant to its limits, from the cold of rural Michigan to the high heat of Tucson, AZ. The contract promises to be a lucrative one, since 180,000 trucks need to be replaced over the next few years at an estimated cost of 6.3 billion dollars.

Other news is unfolding closer to home. In a recent Medium post titled We’re Going to Miami: The First Proving Ground for Our Self-Driving Service, Sherif Marakby, Ford Vice President, Autonomous Vehicles and Electrification, explains why Miami and Miami Beach are the ideal proving ground for Ford autonomous vehicles.

“Miami was recently listed as the 10th most congested city in the world […] and the fifth most congested city in the United States.” He elaborates that this “serves as a reminder that people always need to be at the center of our plan, so we’re setting out to solve for their pain points.”

Early partnerships with Domino’s Pizza and Postmates will be an acid test for the company’s self-driving technology, but that’s not all that’s under the microscope; the behaviors of truck loaders, drivers, and the customers who interact with the technology will also be assessed.

Millions worldwide count on Ford trucks and vans to get the job done, and they trust the brand and their Miami Ford dealer because time and again, Ford delivers. If you need a truck or van to get the job done, visit Palmetto Ford Truck Sales at 7245 NW 36th St (Doral Blvd) in Miami, FL today.

 

Previewing the 2019 Ford Transit Connect

Remember when minivans were dull and boring? Of course, some of you probably didn’t even get as far as the question mark before asking a question of your own: “What do you mean, ‘were’?” Stay with us here. There’s a minivan at Palmetto Ford Truck Sales that’s miles from average. If you don’t know the Ford Transit Connector Ford Transit Connect Wagon, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

We know why minivans tend to get a bad rap. Too often, their looks, handling, and features are dull as dishwater. People buy SUVs partly because they do a lot of the same things as a minivan, and partly because they wouldn’t be caught dead behind the wheel of a minivan. The Ford Transit Connect Wagon is a minivan that looks and handles like an SUV, while still offering all the strengths of a minivan (and sidesteps the size concerns of larger new Ford vans).

And thanks to the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, we’re now we’re getting an advance peek at the 2019 Ford Transit Connect Wagon. The looks are even better than before, borrowing heavily from Ford SUVs like the Ford Escape. The safety technology promises to be great, with standard automatic emergency braking and the option to add lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.

Ford Sync 3 infotainment will be optional, but other tech features (including 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Waze integration, and compatibility with Amazon Alexa) will be standard. Two engines (one gas, one diesel) will be on offer, and the minivan will handle 2,000 pounds or more with the optional towing package.

The 2019 Ford Transit Connect Wagon doesn’t arrive at Palmetto Ford Truck Sales ’til this fall. If you’d rather not wait that long, the 2018 model is in stock now, alongside a full selection of new Ford SUVs and vans. We invite you to our showroom for a closer look and a test drive!

 

 

Ford Truck Lease Ending? Here’s What to Do

Just because Hialeah drivers love their Ford trucks and SUVs doesn’t mean that everyone owns them. If you’re one of the many people who has leased a Ford truck from Palmetto Ford Truck Sales in the last few years, you may be wondering what to do once that lease ends. Just like we did at the beginning, our lease specialists will help you navigate the process.

Here are some dates to mark on your calendar.

90 Days From Lease End

Your lease is winding down, so now’s the time to think about what comes next. Your initial lease agreement gives you the option to buy the vehicle outright, and many people do. However, some also go from one lease to another, or decide they like their Ford F-150 well enough to buy the newest model instead. You’ll also be hearing from Ford Credit in this timeframe.

60 Days From Lease End

Your lease includes penalties for excess mileage and wear. You already know where you’re at for mileage (and we can help you calculate your overage if you’re concerned). With regard to wear, visit your Miami Ford dealership and we’ll evaluate your vehicle’s condition and suggest repairs.

30 Days From Lease End

Time to tie up loose ends. Make those repairs if you haven’t already — call us for Ford service if you need it — and take any other steps you need to take to ensure your vehicle’s in good shape. It’s also time to contact Palmetto Ford Truck Sales to set up a return date and pick your next Ford model.

Of course, we’d love it if you stayed with us. To that end, we offer manufacturer incentives and loyalty incentives through Ford Credit, making it easier to do that. Your Ford dealer is always available at 7245 NW 36th St (Doral Blvd) in Miami, FL for your Ford finance questions, service needs, and much more. So don’t hesitate to visit or call (305) 470-1375 if we can help you in any way!
