Ford went the extra mile to feed the hungry this holiday season! That makes me feel so good about driving a Ford!

More than 500 Ford volunteers went to work in southeast Michigan and several other states on 30 urgent community service projects identified by the company’s nonprofit agency partners. Ford Motor Company Fund also contributed $50,000 that was distributed among hunger relief organizations to buy food and supplies.

Check out this great article about Ford Mustangs in the movies! If movie stars can drive them, we should too!

The Ford Mustang has appeared on both the small and big screen many times over the years. Just last week I spotted a classic Ford Mustang Fastback in the 1985 horror flick “Fright Night.” Reader Darlene recently sent me a note with a few additions for our list.  She spotted a classic Mustang in “The Lake House”, a convertible Mustang in “Brotherhood of Justice”, and Johnny Utah’s silver Mustang in “Point Break”.

Check out this EYE POPPING review of the great features on the 2012 Ford Focus! Finally, great fuel economy in a full sized sedan!

From the exterior, there’s no mistaking the 2012 Ford Focus for a flat-line commuter. The FoMoCo designers graced both the four-door and five-door body styles with a menacing fascia that makes use of massive faux air-inlets on either side of the main grille, and the blacked-out treatment is plenty sharp in the flesh. That’s especially true when the Focus wears the optional 17-inch painted alloy wheels of our sedan tester. Ford is planning to offer a whopping total of 11 different wheel variants, with 18-inch, multi-spoke rollers topping the charts.

Take a look at the 2011 Ford Focus at Future Ford of Sacramento! You will not be disappointed!

http://www.futurefordofsacramento.com 866-699-7684 2011 Focus is not a disappointment. It’s absolutely everything enthusiasts have been asking for. It’s a global car with at least 80% content shared across the globe. It’s once again daring in its styling, sleek and rather sexy, polarizing and above all interesting. They’ve managed to create a sedan as attractive if not more so than the hatchback, oh, and they’re bringing back the proper hatchback. There are clever details throughout; the hatchback’s fuel door is camouflaged behind a diamond-shaped panel under the passenger tail light.
