Get to Know Ford Co-Pilot360™ Safety Technology

Ford Safety | Pittsburgh, PA

Today’s Ford truck and SUV lineup is all about giving drivers confidence, and a big part of that is Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety technology. This suite of advanced features grows by the year, giving you peace of mind by working to protect you and your family on the go.

Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety technology includes features such as

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: Notifies you when a frontal collision is likely. If you’re unable to respond fast enough, AEB applies the brakes to bring the vehicle to a sudden stop.
  • Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert: BLIS® provides a warning when there’s a vehicle in your blind spot or approaching from the side. Select Ford trucks and SUVs also extend coverage to your trailer for hassle-free towing
  • Active Park Assist 2.0: When you find that ideal parking spot, Active Park Assist 2.0 measures the space using cameras and sensors to ensure an optimal fit. Then, with the press of a button, the system automatically guides your vehicle into that spot, taking a lot of hassle out of parallel and perpendicular parking
  • BlueCruise: This all-new hands-free driving feature works on more than 130,000 miles of highways across North America. When you enter a Hands-Free Blue Zone, your Ford Expedition, F-150, F-150 Lightning, or Mustang Mach-E will notify you so that you can engage the system and take your hands off the steering wheel.

There are so many more features available that make Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety technology one of the best parts of today’s lineup. To learn more about how Ford is making your daily drive safer and easier, contact Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ford Sponsor Our Students Program Making a Difference

Ford Sponsor Our Students Program | Pittsburgh, PA

Ford is driving the future with innovation, and that starts with making sure that there are people in place to make it happen. The Ford Sponsor Our Students program helps empower today’s high school students so that they can help enable the innovations of tomorrow.

Since the launch of the Sponsor Our Students program in April, more than 1,000 Ford and Lincoln dealerships around the country have committed to the mission. The goal is to help at least 5,000 students gain valuable on-the-job work-based experience with mentors, preparing them for the work they’d do if they chose to become a Ford certified technician.

“The average dealer will spend tens of thousands on a technician to be trained in a dealership over the course of 5-8 years,” said Frederiek Toney, vice president, Ford Customer Service Division. “This program and other Ford technician training programs help to reduce the time and cost associated with recruiting and training new hires.”

Ford expects that many Sponsor Our Students participants will go on to take part in the Automotive Career Exploration Program. Students who are hired by the dealerships that sponsor them can gain accelerated training as well as a 20% discount in the Rotunda Technician Tool Program.

Ford is building the future one person at a time. If you’re interested in learning more about career opportunities with Ford or the latest new vehicles coming to our showroom, contact the team at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ford Louisville Assembly Wins EPA Pollution Protection Award | Pittsburgh, PA

Ford Louisville Assembly Wins EPA Pollution Protection Award | Pittsburgh, PA

Louisville Assembly Plant, which builds the 2022 Ford Escape, recently earned the 2021 Pollution Protection Award from the EPA. This award from the Environmental Protection Agency recognizes the plant’s leadership in waste and pollution reduction.

The EPA recognized Louisville Assembly Plant in part for a new water recycling initiative. Since launching the program in 2020, the employee-developed program helped the plant use 5 million gallons less water from the city of Louisville.

Since Ford ramped up water conservation efforts in 2000, the automaker has helped save more than 12.5 billion gallons of water. The ultimate goal is to only use freshwater for human consumption.

“This award represents Ford’s commitment to make a positive contribution to the environment wherever possible. It isn’t just a win for the Louisville Assembly Plant, but also for our employees, UAW partners, and the entire Louisville community,” said Lisa Drake, chief operating officer, Ford North America.

Ford is committed to making a better planet for future generations by taking action now. It was the first automaker to sign the Better Climate Challenge, which aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25 percent over the next decade.

Ford is also changing the landscape when it comes to vehicles. The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the most exciting EVs, bar none, and the upcoming F-150 Lightning promises to make electric vehicles a more popular and viable option than ever.

Ford Bronco, Maverick Earn 2022 NACTOY Awards

Ford Bronco | Pittsburgh, PA

For the second year in a row, Ford dominated the North American Car, Truck, and Utility of the Year™ awards. The 2022 Ford Maverick and Bronco earned top NACTOY honors, taking home the titles of Truck of the Year and Utility Vehicle of the Year, respectively.

Last year, Ford also ran these categories with the F-150 taking the top prize for pickups and Mustang Mach-E scoring the award for utility vehicles. Thanks to two of the hottest new Ford vehicles available today, Ford repeats an impressive feat and makes it look easy.

The 2022 Ford Maverick was a natural choice for North American Truck of the Year. It’s available at an impressive starting price, it’s the first truck to offer a standard hybrid engine, and it’s Built Ford Tough®. The Maverick is the kind of truck that even appeals to folks who have never owned a pickup before.

And, of course, the long-awaited and much-hyped Ford Bronco delivers by taking home 2022 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. The revived and revamped Bronco is incredibly off-road-ready thanks to standard 4×4 capabilities, two powerful engines, and a whole lot of options for customization. And things are only getting better this year with the launch of the Bronco Raptor and Bronco Everglades.

Want to see for yourself why the Bronco and Maverick earned Ford back-to-back double NACTOY honors? Check out our selection of new Ford Bronco SUVs and Ford Maverick trucks, then visit Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, when you’re ready to go for a spin.

Ford Bronco Sport First to Use Recycled Ocean Plastic Component

Ford Bronco Sport | Pittsburgh, PA

Did you know that the new Ford Bronco Sport is the first vehicle in the world to use recycled ocean plastic for parts? The awesome off-road SUV boasts wiring harness clips made from discarded plastic fishing nets, helping reduce the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean.

“This is another example of Ford leading the charge on sustainability,” said Jim Buczkowski, vice president of research and Henry Ford technical fellow. “It is a strong example of circular economy, and while these clips are small, they are an important first step in our explorations to use recycled ocean plastics for additional parts in the future.”

The process of making the clips is quite a journey. First, partner DSM Engineering Materials fishes discarded nets from the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea. This plastic waste is cleaned, dried, and turned into small pellets. The pellets are sent to supplier HellermannTyton so that they can be molded into the wiring harness clips.

These clips are then attached to the second-row seats to keep the wires for the SUV’s side-curtain airbags in place. It’s a relatively small part, but it’s a big leap for sustainability.

Ford released the Bronco Sport last year, and it’s been a smash hit ever since. If you love adventure and excitement—even in something like a grocery store run — check out the new Ford Bronco Sport at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ford Adds New Mustang Coastal Edition, Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition for 2022

Ford Mustang badge | Pittsburgh, PA

There’s seemingly never a year that goes by without a big, cool new change to the Mustang lineup. For 2022, Ford is offering up a pair of new options for its prized pony lineup: the Mustang Coastal Edition and the Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition.

Perfect for cruising, the 2022 Mustang Coastal Limited Edition can make your trips through Pittsburgh feel like a run down the Pacific Coast Highway. Building on the Mustang EcoBoost® Premium fastback and convertible, this new package adds 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels, exclusive vinyl side stripes, and unique badging.

If you’ve got your eye on the 760-horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500, the new Heritage Edition might just be for you. Paying homage to the classic 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500, this car gets Brittany Blue exterior paint (also optional for the Coastal Edition) and your choice of two different Wimbledon White over-the-top racing stripes.

Ford is also expanding the color palette for 2022, offering the Shelby GT500 in Code Orange. This cool hue first seen on the F-150 Raptor makes this horse impossible to ignore — not that you could with the way it looks and drives. 

In total, Ford is adding eight new colors to the 2022 Mustang lineup, including a Mischievous Purple Metallic that we’re very excited to see in person.

Speaking of seeing the 2022 Ford Mustang in person, you can pre-order the Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition and Mustang Coastal Edition now ahead of their shared spring 2022 launch. Shults Ford Harmarville is your home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for all things Mustang. Check out our current selection online and give us a call when you’re ready to experience your dream car.

2022 Ford Mustang Gets Sleek with New Stealth Edition

Ford Mustang | Pittsburgh, PA

2022 is shaping up to be a big year for the Ford Mustang with the launch of several new special editions. One of the coolest by far is the first-ever Stealth Edition Appearance Package, available for the 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost® Premium.

The 2022 Ford Mustang Stealth Edition lives up to its name with stylish black accents that add an aggressive, almost mysterious element. That includes cool-looking 19-inch Ebony Black wheels, a black performance rear wing, and a black pony badge at the center of the car’s iconic grille. You also get the same awesome clear tri-bar taillamps that you’ll find on the Ice White Edition.

“The black accents really give the car a whole new persona, sinister and sporty all at once,” said Ford Mustang Brand Manager Jim Owens. “Naturally, the package needed the right name. Stealth Edition says it all.”

The 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost® Premium is a great pony car on its own thanks to its 310-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®. When you add the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, you make it even clearer that you mean business when it comes to having fun.

In addition to the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, the 2022 Ford Mustang receives a new Coastal Limited Edition, Ice White Edition, and a Heritage Edition for the 760-horsepower Shelby GT500.

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. When you’re not on the go, you can access exclusive bonus content at the Bronco Podcast website to spice up your next trip across Pennsylvania.

Place your $100 refundable deposit on a brand-new 2021 Ford Bronco or Ford Bronco Sport at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. That puts you one step closer to driving an American icon brought back to life.
