Ford Truck Standard

Ford has always been a household name. No matter your preference in truck brands, one thing is for sure. You can’t argue with numbers and Ford’s F-series has come out on top for 32 years straight. They sold more trucks than Chevrolet last year with 763,402 over 480,414. Though both brands managed to increase their sales over the previous year, Ford still came out ahead. Why is this? Why are we seeing Ford skyrocket into the lead every year? The answer is simple.

Ford has the best in designs and innovations for their vehicles. When new technology comes out, they jump on making that technology part of their standard trucks and cars. Even more than technology though, they are figuring out how to make their trucks lighter while still reinforcing the strength they possess. In recent months, Ford announced they were rebuilding their F-series trucks with aluminum framing instead of the traditional steel. This major change is going to keep them ahead of the game for a lot of consumers by increasing fuel economy and overall safety.

The MyFord Sync infotainment systems have evolved over the years as well. From the basic Sync system to the Sync with MyFord Touch, it is there to help you out with navigation, emergency assistance and hands-free communication. This is available in many of the vehicle choices. There have even been incredible additions such as Active Park Assist to aid you in making parallel parking as easy as pushing a button.

The hands-free auto liftgate technology on their SUVs is also a handy feature to have when you have your hands full. A simple sensor and gentle tap with your foot opens the trunk hatch. In the not too distant future, they have even mentioned that ‘self-driving’ cars would be here before you know it. That is probably still a few years away but just knowing that Ford is moving forward with technology is exciting. The possibilities are endless and we can’t wait to see what will come out next.

All of these reasons is why Ford is still number one. Why look for any other car or truck? When you want the best, stop on by Johnson Brothers Ford. Our friendly and courteous staff is more than willing to assist you in choosing that perfect Ford for you.

About Ford Trucks

The Ford brand has been around for decades and is a household name. More often than not, if someone were to ask you to name a couple of different trucks, chances are one of them would probably be the Ford F150. This model has become the largest and best-selling in the industry and there’s no shortage of reasons why that is. When you want a tough and dependable truck that is great on handling and load capacity, you turn to the F150, which made its debut as early as 1975. But of course, this isn’t the only truck Ford manufactures.

Ford has had a rich history of automobiles that dates from the turn of the 20th century. The very first Ford truck was built in 1900. Seventeen years later, they introduced the Model T One-Ton truck, which incorporated the very first chassis designed specifically for trucks. This was huge for the company and by 1925, the first pickup with a cargo box appeared. It also had an adjustable tailgate and heavy duty rear springs.

Model A and B were introduced in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The F-Series was born in 1948 and marked a turning point in truck production. The first factory-built F250 was offered, beginning in 1959, which had four-wheel drive. Naturally, as the needs changed over the years, the trucks did, too. Ride quality was improved with the invention of twin I-beam front suspension in 1965 and the name “Ranger” was used in describing the styling for a line of pickups. They also unveiled the first four-door version of the F250 the same year.

The 1980s saw improvement by leaps and bounds with better interior quality, better engines, and the SuperCab models. Safety was reinforced and driver’s side air bags were made standard by 1994. Over the course of this company’s history with trucks, it is apparent that the designs only get better and better. The quality, safety, value, and dependability of Ford trucks have made it the top-selling truck on the market. But don’t take our word for it. Come in to your Temple Ford dealer today and check out our great line of Ford trucks or other vehicles for yourself.

The Switch

Slide Show Image

If you have never driven a Ford from your Johnson Brothers Ford dealer, then you have no idea what you are missing out on. Many people have made the switch from other vehicle manufacturers to the beauty that is Ford. There are dozens of reasons why. There are several different options of vehicles to choose from when you make the switch. Whether you are looking for a great family-styled SUV like the Escape or a heavy-duty towing truck like the F150, we have it all.

Every new 2014 model has something that the previous version does not. A lot of the newer Fords are integrating the MyFord Sync system which allows you to connect instantly via Bluetooth to your car’s navigation and voice-activation system. The touch-screen that you use for the Sync system is large and easy to use in all vehicles.

There have been people switching from Honda, Acura and even Dodge. All are more than satisfied with the technology, performance and quality that Ford vehicles have given them. For instance, one family wanted a hybrid vehicle and automatically purchased a Toyota Prius. They were not happy with what it offered and switched to a Ford C-Max. They are so much more satisfied with this choice and love the technology features such as the entertainment system, heated seats and easyfuel capless fuel filler.

Other models people have switched to include the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus and Escape. Come in and test drive any of these fabulous vehicles and see for yourself firsthand why more people are making the switch to Ford. Once you get behind the wheel of one, you will never turn back.

See what we can do for you. Come in today and visit your local Temple Ford dealer. There are several incentives and offers being advertised to help get you in the perfect Ford for you and your family. We are always standing by and ready to assist you in buying the only brand you will ever need.

2015 Ford F150

Ford is making way for the new model year for the F150. We just hit 2014 so it will be a little while until we see it, but the 2015 is on its way. There isn’t a lot of information on it out there right now but there are some things we do know. The style of the truck is something that’s already been seen in the Baja 1000 from the 2013 off-road race. This outstanding new truck is made out of aluminum almost everywhere. The cab and the bed is made from aluminum with steel only making up a few key components of the design. Some of those components are naturally the frame and side-impact beams.

Something we’re betting you didn’t know about the new F150 is that it is ready to plow snow. In models past, this truck wasn’t designed properly for the use with a snow plow. If you’re living in the northern climates where digging your way out of snow is important, this feature is great. Plow away without worrying that your electrical system might be compromised.

We mentioned before that the bed is made of aluminum. We know this leaves many wondering if it would be strong enough for all of the hauling and work that truck beds are made to withstand. Fear not. The bed is actually stronger due to the thicker gauge of aluminum used instead of the heavy steel. The use of aluminum makes the truck more light-weight as well.

One of the most interesting features is the almost flush rear window. Usually the rear window is split into sections to allow it to open in the middle. This window is one solid piece that has an opening in the center which appears to just hover in the middle giving it a magical look. This is a new sleek design that is sure to be more appealing.

Another new feature of this masterpiece is that it isn’t just held together by nuts and bolts. It is also assembled using gluing, riveting and some welding techniques. If you’re thinking of a new work truck or one just to ride around town in, check out the 2015 F150 when it comes to Johnson Brothers Ford. You won’t be disappointed.

Decorating Your Ford

Ford drivers spend a lot of time in their vehicles. It’s only natural for Christmas decorations to be at the top of the list of must-do’s for the season. Here are some great ways to decorate your Johnson Brothers Ford car or truck for this festive time of year.

The most important part of decorating is the lights. You have a range of options from LED light strings to neon installations. Both trucks and cars will be sporting some form of Christmas cheer with lights. You can arrange a small string of lights across the top of the back window to an entire rope of lights lining the bed of your truck. Make sure to know what is safe and what’s legal. Check with your city and state before lighting up your truck or car this Christmas.

Decals make for a temporary and easy way to add some Christmas spirit to your vehicle. They are easy to apply and simply peel off when the season is over. Many retailers sell different shapes and sizes. You can find everything from candy canes to assorted Christmas figures. Apply these to your hood, doors, and windows.

Many Christmas spirited motorists go that extra mile by decorating their dashboards. You can place stuffed animals on your dashboard with some fake cotton snow. Just make sure to be safe and that all the decorations do not interfere with your visibility while driving.

You might also consider placing some holly and ivy in or on your car. These can be easily added to the interior without interfering with your visibility. Or place a holiday wreath on the front grill. Just make sure it’s secure, you don’t want it to come loose while driving.

A lot of people enjoy the idea of placing car antlers in the windows and a big red nose on the front. Turning your vehicle into Rudolph is simple and fun to do. Again, just make sure everything is properly secure.

Don’t forget to make your favorite holiday music play list to help get in the spirit. Adding a pine scented air freshener will also help with the overall holiday ambiance this season.

We hope you’ve enjoyed these helpful decorating ideas from your Johnson Brothers Ford dealership. Have a fun and safe holiday season.
