Regardless of the size of your business, Ford can supply the right vehicle for you. Ford has had a long history of producing reliable and practical vehicles that can suit the needs of many companies. Whether it be the towing capability of their pickups or the carrying capacity of their transit trucks and vans, chances are, there will be a work truck for business that is appropriate for the job. Below are some of the innovations that you will find in Ford vehicles that can be useful for your business needs:
At the heart of Ford’s vehicles are some of the most advanced and powerful engines available. One example is the 3.5L EcoBoost that is used to power the Ford F-150. It boasts of the best-in-class tow rating. This is because of technologies such as the Ford-first port fuel and direct injection (PFDI) which provides two injectors per cylinder that are designed to improve power and efficiency. The Ford 3.3L V6 variant has the twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) that creates greater fuel efficiency, making it the right choice for the demands of everyday jobs.
Smart Towing and Pro Trailer Backup Assist
The F-150 class of pickups offers standard trailer sway control as it uses AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability. Backing up a vehicle with an attached trailer effortlessly requires experience but Ford has devised the Pro Trailer Backup Assist which makes it as simple as rotating a knob to maneuver the trailer in the right direction while backing up.
Large Carrying Capacities
The Ford Transit Connect series offers cargo payloads of up to 1,630 lbs. (739 kg) and a towing rating of up to 2,000 lbs, (907 kg). The cargo volume of these trucks can be as much as 3,641L of cargo space. There are models that can be used for carrying passengers and others that are configured solely for cargo. Moreover, the large side panels of these vans make it ideal for prominently displaying your marketing materials such as the company’s logo or other eye-catching and colourful graphics. There are also Vocational Upfits that can be configured for your business needs. It has storage cabinets for holding a variety of tools necessary for your daily operations. Ford even has Taxi Packages which have features such as 180-degree swing out doors and two rows of seats for taking on more passengers.
Ford vehicles come with a plethora of advanced navigation and collision avoidance technologies to ensure that the driver, passengers and cargo arrive safely. Ford vehicles are equipped with the standard anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and the Traction Control system for easier handling especially in less than ideal road conditions. Some models offer other features such as Reverse Sensing Systems, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, and Active Park Assist. All of these technologies were carefully thought out to help the driver safely navigate the roads.
