2022 Ford Bronco Adds New Eruption Green, Hot Pepper Red Colors

Ford Bronco | Shults Ford Harmarville

In case you missed it, the all-new Ford Bronco has erupted onto the scene as the red-hot must-have SUV of the year. Almost as if to drive that point home, the 2022 Ford Bronco is adding a pair of new colors: Eruption Green and Hot Pepper Red

Ford color and materials manager Barb Whalen explained that Eruption Green was chosen as a way to honor the Mallard Green hue offered on the original Bronco.

“Paint has a wonderful way of evolving because of technology. Eruption Green is a contemporary color, but there’s a connection with Bronco heritage. It’s evergreen-inspired, with yellow highlights that really tie it into nature,” she said.

Eruption Green and new Hot Pepper Red Metallic will be available across the 2022 Bronco two- and four-door lineup. They’ll replace Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic, and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, which will be retired after the 2021 model year.

No matter the colors, the Ford Bronco is an incredible machine with standard 4×4 capability, impressive power, and undeniable presence.

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.

If you’re looking to dominate whatever life throws your way, the 2021 Ford F-150 is coming soon to Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Contact our sales experts to learn more about this truck and how you can make one yours later this year.

How to Celebrate the Fourth of July at Home in Pittsburgh, PA

With Independence Day fast approaching and most of us trying to stay at home, you may be wondering how to celebrate the most patriotic holiday of them all without hosting a large gathering or cookout. That’s why we put together this list of creative, fun ways to celebrate Fourth of July at home with your family.

Highlight the Declaration of Independence

While we don’t recommend taking an actual highlighter to the proclamation of our nation’s independence, giving it a dramatic reading could be a fun way to recognize its historical significance. Gathering the family and divvying up passages to read is sure to remind everyone that one simple document can change the world.

Get the kids involved

On the surface, history might seem boring to kids. However, framing a learning experience about the origins of America as a fun game show is a great way to help your children connect with their country’s legacy. You can even introduce Fourth of July-themed treats as rewards for getting the right answers.

Watch a well-themed movie

Sitting down with your family for a movie night — complete with delicious food, naturally — is the perfect way to end a Fourth of July spent at home. You can opt for a classic war film, superhero fare like Captain America, an action flick like Independence Day, or a family-friendly adventure like National Treasure.

No matter how you choose to celebrate the Fourth of July at home in Pittsburgh, all of us here at Shults Ford of Harmarville would like to wish you a happy, safe Independence Day.

Tips for Driving Safely in the Rain This Spring in Pittsburgh

With the spring season in full swing in Harmarville, there will be blooming flowers and warmer days, but there will also be an uptick in downpours. Rain can be hazardous while on the road, which is why it’s a good idea to keep in mind these tips for driving safely in the rain.

Inspect your vehicle

Before embarking on your commute, it’s important to make sure all the lights on your vehicle are working so that other drivers can spot your vehicle on the road. You should also check that the tires are properly inflated and have enough tread depth for maintaining traction on slick streets. Windshield wipers are a must when it’s raining, so consider replacing them if they are not functioning well.

Take it slow

Speeding on a wet road could lead to hydroplaning, so you should consider driving at a slower pace. You also want to be sure to leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle ahead of you since hard braking can be dangerous.

Know how to handle a skid

If your vehicle does start to hydroplane, you should avoid the urge to hit the brakes since doing so could make it more difficult to gain control of the vehicle. Instead, you should gently remove your foot from the gas pedal and keep steering in the direction that you want the vehicle to go in, without jerking the wheel.

We at Shults Ford Harmarville offer several vehicles, including the Ford Escape, Explorer, and EcoSport, which are available with all-wheel drive to help you handle slick roads. Visit our showroom in Pittsburgh to check out these vehicles and receive any needed parts replacements.

“We developed this unique winch in cooperation with Warn specifically to meet Built Ford Tough truck standards for our new F-Series Super Duty,” explained Ron Meredith, Ford truck vehicle personalization planning manager. “Having a winch specially designed to our Built Ford Tough standards gives our hard-working Super Duty customers yet another tool to extend this truck’s capabilities whether at work or on the trail.”

The winch will carry an additional price of $3,000 MSRP and will be available starting the middle of this year. The 2020 Super Duty is manufactured at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville and the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake. The first batch of F-Series Super Duty models have already arrived here at Shults Ford Harmarville, so be sure to visit our showroom to see why this truck is the most capable and most Ford Tough ever built.
