2 Great Ford Vehicles for Winter Driving

The winter weather can be brutal in Pittsburgh, especially with snow and sleet coating the roads. Safe driving starts with choosing the right vehicle. At Shults Ford Harmarville, we have a large selection of vehicles for winter driving to choose from, including the F-150 and Fusion.

2019 Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 has been America’s best-selling vehicle for decades. The 2019 F-150’s strong frame, powerful engine, and 20-inch machined aluminum wheels help to give you control in any terrain, on or off the road. You can opt for a 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain on six of the F-150’s trim levels; the Raptor comes standard as a 4×4. You can also enjoy winter friendly features like heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and remote start.

2019 Ford Fusion

The 2019 Ford Fusion combines the best of both worlds: a midsize commuter vehicle with winter friendly features to help you drive in the colder months. In fact, U.S. News & World Report named the Ford Fusion one of the 10 Best Cars for Winter Driving in 2018. It’s one of the few midsize car models that offers all-wheel drive, an instant boost in safety in winter conditions.

Tackle the winter months with confidence this year. Test drive one of these winter friendly models at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh.

Ford teamed up with fashion guru Rent the Runway to design a new Ford Fusion that no one can resist—not that many people could resist it in the first place, mind you.

Rent the Runway is a fashion group that rents high-end designer apparel and accessories on a 4- or 8- day basis. It was founded by Harvard Business School graduates Jennifer Hyman and Jennifer Carter Fleiss and now offers more than 50,000 designer dresses and accessories for fashion-oriented women.

Their partnership with Ford is culminating in a special Test-Drive Style campaign that will not only give customers a chance to win a $1,000 gift card for Rent the Runway’s dream closet but a brand-new Ford Fusion as well.

“With Rent the Runway’s affordable and accessible designer fashion and Fusion’s stunning design and smart technologies, we are joining forces to make great style available and seamless to the woman on the go,” said Amy Marentic, Ford group marketing manager.

But if you just want to get a Fusion the regular way, just come by Shults Ford!

Ford F-150 Tops “Forbes” Best-Selling Car List, is Not Actually a Car

Ford F-150 Tops “Forbes” Best-Selling Car List, At the halfway point in November, there are a number of things we can come to expect in the remaining month and a half of 2013: the Steelers resurgence, great food and bad traffic around Thanksgiving, the annual dose of gift-giving anxiety, and year-end best-of lists.  Yet even with a little over a month to go for the year, you can pretty much call the race for best-selling car over, according to Forbes.  The winner, however, is not a car; it’s the Ford F-150.

Ford’s flagship truck topped Forbes’ recent top ten list thanks in large part to an auto industry boom  that has analysts predicting the best year for all things four-wheeled since 2006.  Much of this surge is attributed to the emergent housing market, which means that so many of America’s hardest-working men and women have leaned on the talents of Ford’s F-Series to help them get the job done.

Fending off the advances of redesigned competitor trucks and putting a greater emphasis on tech and fuel efficiency without sacrificing requisite power, Ford’s F-Series has moved 623,309 units through October.  This amounts to a 19.8% year-over-year increase and a comfortable lead over the second-place vehicle.

Ironically enough, only half of Forbes’ ten best-selling cars for 2013 are truly cars: three are trucks and two are compact crossovers.  Rounding out the top ten is the Ford Escape, whose 2014 redesign has made it a hit with drivers across North America and helped it gain substantial ground on the segment-leading CR-V in sales, ensuring a fight to the finish line.  The hot-selling 2014 Ford Fusion, Focus, and Explorer also find themselves among the top 20, reaffirming Ford’s dominance across all segments.

Remember that holiday shopping anxiety we mentioned before?  If you want to allay those fears, consider getting the one you love behind the wheel of the best-selling car/truck/vehicle/super-tough-all-purpose-transportation-monster in America.  It probably won’t fit under the tree too well, but it’d look a sight better than a Snuggie.  Stop in and see us at Shults Ford today and make those spirits bright.
