2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Picks Up IIHS Top Safety Pick

Mustang Mach-E | Shults Ford | Pittsburgh, PA

The multi-award-winning 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has won top honors for everything from its exceptional range to its incredible power to its premium quality. And now, thanks to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the all-new Ford Mustang Mach-E has taken home one of the top honors for safety.

This spring, IIHS named the all-electric 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E one of its Top Safety Pick award-winners. This honor joins an ever-growing list of accolades that includes 2021 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™, Green Car Journal’s Green Car of the Year, and Edmunds’ Top-Rated Luxury Electric Vehicle.

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E aced all six of the IIHS’ crashworthiness tests: driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints. It also earned superior scores for crash prevention and a good score for the LED headlamps standard on the Mach-E Premium, GT, and First Edition.

IIHS honored the Mustang Mach-E in close proximity to the IIHS-affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute releasing the results of a study on electric vehicle safety. Per HLDI, statistics from 2011-2019 found that EVs have 40 percent lower injury claim rates than vehicles powered by traditional internal combustion engines.

The future is certainly looking bright with Ford thanks to its continuous push toward total electrification. The Mustang Mach-E will be soon joined by the E-Transit van and the incredible 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. If you’d like to test drive the Mustang Mach-E, contact the team at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’ll put you behind the wheel and let you experience the future first-hand.

VIN 001 Ford Bronco, Mustang Mach 1 Raise $1.5M for Charity at Auction

2 Door Ford Bronco | Pittsburgh, PA

Earlier this spring, Ford trotted out the most exclusive versions of its hottest new vehicles for a pair of great causes. The VIN 001 Ford Bronco and Mustang Mach 1 went up on the block at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale Arizona. When the hammers fell, the duo commanded a whopping $1,575,000 — all of which went to charity.

The first production version of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 sold for $500,000 on the first night of the 021 Barrett-Jackson Auction Scottsdale. That half-million-dollar haul went to JDRF, the longtime Ford partner whose goal is finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Ford and JDRF have worked together for 35 years, and Ford has raised more than $70 million for the cause.

On Saturday, the rights to the VIN 001 2021 Ford Bronco were up for grabs. There was plenty of action among bidders, and when all was said and done, a certain lucky someone dropped $1 million on the first Ford Bronco two-door to roll off an assembly line in 25 years. All of that money will support the Bronco Wild Fund, which Ford hopes will raise $5 million for important environmental causes.  

If you missed your chance to get the VIN 001 Ford Bronco two-door or Mustang Mach 1, fear not. The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 is arriving at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ford Pioneers Automated Valet Parking System

Ford Pioneers Automated Valet Parking System | Harmarville, PA

If you’ve ever struggled to park your vehicle before a fun outing in the city, you know how much of a hassle it can be. Fortunately, help just might be on the way. In a recent automated valet parking collaboration with two other companies, Ford showed how it’s working to make these kinds of headaches a thing of the past.

Ford teamed up with Bosch and Bedrock to display this new system in Detroit. The trial took place at Bedrock’s Assembly Garage, which was equipped with Bosch’s smart infrastructure tech. Ford contributed a specially equipped Escape SUV outfitted with vehicle-to-infrastructure, or V2I, communication capabilities.

To use this automated valet parking system, a driver simply drives the Escape to a marked spot in the garage. After exiting the vehicle, they use an app to automatically send the Escape to a parking space. Along the way, sensors placed throughout the garage steer the vehicle in the right direction — or stop it if a pedestrian or another vehicle gets in the way. This process is also used to retrieve the vehicle from its spot.

Ford noted that this system could eventually help garages use their space more efficiently — and help drivers save time and effort.  

While V2I isn’t quite ready for production yet, it’s far from the only technology that Ford has developed to make your driving life easier. The Escape is currently available with Active Park Assist 2.0, a handy system that automatically steers the vehicle in and out of spaces for you.

To learn more about the Escape, Active Park Assist 2.0, and other great Ford offerings, stop in for a visit at Shults Ford of Harmarville in Pittsburgh.

Ford Launches ‘Bring Back Bronco’ Podcast

Ever since Ford announced the return of one of its iconic Built Wild™ vehicle — the exciting 2021 Ford Bronco — fans have been in a state of enthusiastic hysteria. With the launch of its brand-new podcast: Bring Back Bronco: The Untold Story, you can geek out over the return of an off-road legend while you make your daily commute through Pittsburgh.

In regards to the podcast’s topic and tone, Ford’s Chief Communications Officer Mark Truby said, “The Bronco is an iconic vehicle, with an unusual history of twists and turns, ascents, and descents. It demands a fresh storytelling approach to shed light on what makes it special and so compelling to its huge fan base, as well as for new fans who will discover the rich history along with the new Broncos.”

Just as the Bronco holds a special place in many people’s hearts and minds, it’s story personal to Glinton. “This project was of special interest to me for several reasons, including the fact that my mother worked for Ford for many years and I worked on a Ford assembly line before I went into radio and reporting.”

You can listen to the first several episodes of Bring Back Bronco: The Untold Story right now through Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. You can easily stream episodes from your smartphone to your vehicle through your SYNC® infotainment system.
