Future Ford of Sacramento presents this video with the 2013 Ford Explorer near Folsom. Truck World USA: 888-577-0454 In the last redesign, Ford changed the Explorer’s underlying architecture, going from the previous truck-based chassis to a unibody design for more usable interior space. This design brings with it a weight reduction, which results in better fuel efficiency and handling. Inside the cabin, the Explorer offers a stylish, well-finished space for up to seven passengers. There are a lot of advanced features, too, including the voice-activated Sync system, the touchscreen-based MyFord Touch and many safety features, including second-row seatbelt airbags, adaptive cruise control with collision warning and, for 2013, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Future Ford of Sacramento near Folsom with a 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid near Roseville share the screen. 888-577-0454 The C-Max’s hybrid system is worthy of praise as well. Not only does the C-Max hybrid get an EPA-estimated 47 mpg in every driving cycle, we also manage to reach 47 mph on electricity alone. This is a difficult task in most hybrids, yet the C-Max pulled it off without creating a freight train of slow-moving cars behind us. Should you want to be less judicious with the throttle, however, the C-Max will be happy to oblige, as it’s one of the quickest hybrids on the market. Even highway passing isn’t the chore you’d think it would be thanks to the willing gasoline engine assisted by the electric motor’s ample torque.

The first bacon wrapped car? Yes Ford has done the impossible. They made the Fiesta even tastier!

The current Golden Age of Bacon has seen another breakthrough thanks to the 2014 Ford Fiesta. In honor of International Bacon Day on August 31, the Ford Custom Graphics crew has released three new bacon-themed vinyl wraps for the hot-selling subcompact. Customers can choose a pair of bacon-look dual racing strips, er, racing stripes, for the hood of the 2014 Ford Fiesta, add a side of bacon to the side of the car with bacon stripes that wrap over the rear wheel or go straight to hog heaven with a full-on display of 10 pieces of bacon that cover the car in porky goodness. Even better, the wraps are made of high-quality vinyl from 3M and created specifically for the 2014 Ford Fiesta (and bacon boosters).–satisfying-even-the-mos.html

Even the traditional blue oval Ford logo was removed from the new, minimalist grille.
