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.

Automotive history is a fascinating subject, and the story of the Bronco is no different. Over the course of eight episodes, former National Public Radio correspondent Sonari Glinton applies a journalistic lens to the legacy of the Bronco — both the good and the less-than-ideal.

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.

The 2021 Ford F-150 is the Toughest, Most Productive Ever Built

For 43 years and counting, Ford has been the leading name in all things pickup trucks. That run is set to grow by many more years with the introduction of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 — the toughest, most productive, and most powerful F-150 ever made. Ford revealed the much-anticipated next-generation F-150 earlier this month during a live-streaming event, and it definitely did not disappoint.

While there’s never any shortage of excitement surrounding a new F-150, this reveal included something truly exciting: the announcement of the all-new 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ hybrid V6. Power is in the name for a reason here: Ford expects that it will deliver more horsepower and torque than any other full-size pickup, which should crush any concerns about hybrids not being as powerful. Not only will the F-150 PowerBoost tow at least 12,000 pounds, but it’ll also deliver a targeted EPA-estimated range of 700 miles.

That’s the kind of incredible innovation that’s kept Ford and the F-150 at the top of its game for decades. But that’s not all Ford has in store with the 2021 F-150. For you adventure-seekers, the 2021 Ford F-150 is available with a Pro Power Onboard™ generator, which brings enough power to run 28 refrigerators or about as many tools as you’d need for a tough job. Speaking of tough jobs, the new F-150 gets an available Tailgate Work Surface that helps you stay productive on the job.

The 2021 Ford F-150 also boasts a revamped interior with a couple of super-cool new features. The available Interior Work Surface lets you turn your cabin into a functional workspace perfect for sending emails or eating your lunch. With available Max Recline Seats, you can recline nearly 180 degrees, which makes it easy to knock off for a nap on your break.

Add all that to the fact that the 2021 Ford F-150 features Ford Co-Pilot360™ 2.0, first-in-class Active Drive Assist hands-free driving, over-the-air update capabilities, SYNC® 4 infotainment with an available 12-inch center screen, and just so much more, and it’s clear that Ford plans to dominate for years and years to come.

Ford Performs Well in J.D. Power’s 2020 Vehicle Dependability Study

J.D. Power conducted its 2020 Vehicle Dependability Study to determine which 3-year-old vehicles gave owners the least amount of problems. The Ford Mustang and F-150 both earned awards for their performances in the study.

The Mustang won in the midsize sporty car segment, while the F-150 won in the large light-duty pickup segment. The high ranking of each model enabled Ford to place third among all the automakers in the study.

“For us, high quality means more than a great experience in the first few months of ownership; it includes a great experience throughout a customer’s ownership journey, and these results affirm our commitment to building high-quality vehicles,” said Linda Cash, Ford vice president of Quality and New Model Launch Program.

Ford managed to jump six spots in the study, thanks in large part to its SYNC® 3 system. The voice-activated communications and entertainment system features an easy-to-use touch screen that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.  As such, you can make calls to your loved ones, send messages and listen to your playlists while on the go.

The protective and connective technologies in Ford vehicles are just some of the aspects that make Ford vehicles reliable options.

Ford CEO Confirms Ford Bronco Hybrid

Ford announced that it’s bringing back the iconic Ford Bronco in 2018, but it’s been almost entirely silent on the rugged off-roader ever since. Though details are few and far between, we have learned one particularly juicy tidbit from the head man in charge of the Blue Oval. During a shareholder conference call this spring, Jim Hackett, Ford CEO, confirmed that there will be a Ford Bronco hybrid variant.

This new hybrid would be part of the current push for Ford to become more electric throughout its lineup over the next few years. The brand has recently invested $11 billion in creating electric variants of their vehicles through 2023.

Even with this information, we still don’t know much about the Bronco. Ford has released some teaser images that show the Bronco’s squared-off shape, but it’s been mum on everything else. There’s been rumblings about two- and four-door variants, detachable doors and a detachable roof, and the very nature of its retro design that will harken back to its past. We also have a strong indication that there will be a smaller version of the Bronco — which many people are referring to as the Baby Bronco — that may well hit the market at the same time as its larger sibling. The Bronco is expected to debut in 2020, so it may still be a few months before we get some hard facts we can sink our teeth into. One thing we do know for sure: When the 2021 Ford Bronco does (finally) arrive, you’ll be able to find it right here at Shults Ford Harmarville.
