The Ford Super Duty® models already have the capabilities and power you need for a hard day’s work. For the 2020 model year, the trucks equipped with the Tremor Off-Road Package are now available with an integrated electric winch to better handle your off-road adventures.
Ford Performance Parts winch by Warn is available for Super Duty® Tremor
trucks, whether they’re gas-powered or diesel-powered. You can opt to have the
winch as a dealer-installed after-sale accessory or a factory-orderable option.
installed, the new winch promises an impressive 12,000 pounds of winching
power. The winch is powerful enough to pull many rigs over obstacles or out of the
dirt. If a fallen tree is blocking your path, it can also move the tree out of
the way. Coming with wireless remote control, the winch is not only strong but also
easy for you to use.
2020 Ford Super Duty® with the Tremor Off-Road Package is ideal for both work
and play. The available package adds locking rear differential, off-road
shocks, a front air dam and 35-inch tires. When properly equipped, the truck
also has a maximum towing of 15,000 pounds for conventional trailers.
The 2020 Ford Expedition has the power and capability to handle adventures on and off the road. Nevertheless, to make the SUV even more adept at off-road paths, Ford is making the FX4 off-road package an option for the 2020 Expedition Limited.
The Expedition Limited FX4 off-road package adds 18-inch
metallic gray-painted cast-aluminum rims and 32-inch all-terrain tires to the
already impressive SUV. Premium off-road-tuned shocks and seven underbody skid
plates, which include steel plates and a new sand shield, further help the
Expedition Limited conquer different terrains.
The rugged SUV will be powered by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost®
engine, which produces 375 horsepower. The engine pairs to a 10-speed automatic
transmission and allows the SUV to tow up to 9,200 pounds when properly
In addition to having off-road capabilities, the Expedition
Limited FX4 has a luxurious interior, complete with rich wood accents and
premium leather-trimmed seating. Devin
McParlane, Ford Expedition consumer marketing manager, said, “There’s a growing trend in people
looking to enjoy rugged terrain without having to give up the refinement,
comfort or convenience of getting there.”
We at L&L Motor are excited about this new package option for the 2020 Ford Expedition Limited. You can learn more about the package and the family-friendly features of the SUV when you stop by for a test drive.
The 2019 Ford Edge is a great vehicle for families, having a spacious interior and innovative technologies. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also recently gave the SUV a 2019 Top Safety Pick award, so you can have peace of mind when driving your loved ones.
The Ford Edge had to perform well in
different tests to earn the prestigious award. Accordingly, the SUV earned a
“Superior” rating for collision prevention, as well as a “Good” rating for the
passenger-side small overlap front test.
Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology helped the
Edge earn these ratings. The Rear View Camera displays the area behind your
vehicle while you reverse out of a parking spot. Traction control keeps you
stable on different road conditions. Plus, BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, the Lane-Keeping System and Hill Start
Assist all come standard.
“We are really pleased the insurance
industry places such a high degree of trust in our 2019 Ford Edge,” said Angela
Cascaden, Ford Edge Marketing Manager. “It not only offers a number of
innovative safety features for passengers, it backs that all up with a host of
driver-assist technologies designed to help improve confidence behind the
Ford Performance and ARB 4×4 Accessories have teamed up to make Ford Ranger off-road parts. These new parts are great for drivers wanting to take the path less traveled.
The first part to come out of the
collaboration is a winch-capable front bumper, which is designed specifically
for the Ford Ranger. The bumper is made from welded sheet steel and attaches to
the truck’s existing chassis mounting points. It is also finished in an
Integrit® powder coat for extra style and durability.
Ford also ensured the new bumper
would not compromise the functionality of the truck’s features, such as the available
Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning and the Ford Co-Pilot
360™ driver-assist technologies. Compatible accessories for the new bumper
include LED lightbars, jacking points for off-road jacks, and antenna and sand
Ford and ARB will also make
additional vehicle recovery parts and off-road accessories for other Ford
trucks as well as SUVs. The upcoming components will help improve the off-road
capabilities of Ford models, give more options for vehicle customization and
increase your confidence while driving.
The Detroit Youth Choir recently gained popularity on the hit NBC show, “America’s Got Talent.” This talented group of young singers placed second on the reality competition, falling short of the $1 million grand prize. However, Ford wants to show support for the 52-member choir, which is why Ford Fund is giving scholarships to the members.
Each member of the choir is receiving a $1,000 scholarship
from Ford Fund. That amount of money can help pay for textbooks or other
necessary items for the choir members. Ford also gave the group a 15-passenger
Transit van, which will make traveling to events easier.
“We share the pride and excitement of Detroiters everywhere
in recognizing these remarkable and talented young people,” said Jim Vella,
president, Ford Motor Company Fund. “We’re thrilled to be able to help them not
only with their transportation challenges, but also the next chapter of their
The Detroit Youth Choir has been a part of the Detroit
community since 1996. The choir teaches about music, theater arts, dance and
even life skills. It also has an impressive 98 percent graduation rate. Ford
has helped this choir as well as other members of Michigan communities with
about $177 million given to important causes.
New England does not have the market cornered on pretty autumns. In fact, Utah might be the most beautiful place in the country come fall (and all seasons, let’s be honest). Looking for a place to see the leaves change? Check out one of these fall foliage road trips in Utah this year in your new Ford F-150:
to Ogden Valley for some breathtaking views of the changing trees. While out
that way, stay a couple nights at Snowbasin Resort, where you can try some
delicious beer and barbecue—and free jazz on Sundays.

Yellowstone. Zion National Park may be the country’s most amazing national park
with beautiful views of red rocks and jagged cliffs. While the landscape is sparser
in terms of trees, it still does play host to changing leaves — and the
tourists have all left for the summer.
The Alpine Loop
is by far Utah’s most famous fall foliage loop. Start at American Fork Canyon
and head to Provo Canyon on this 20-mile loop.
This year, Ford and the Ford Fund created a new mobility
program called Strengthen Her: Mobilizing Ventures for Social Innovation, or SHE-MOVES.
The SHE-MOVES mobility program was designed specifically to make a difference
in the lives of women and children in South Africa and Nigeria. SHE-MOVES is
built around the “Whole-Person Leadership” development, adhering to the UN’s
Sustainable Development Goals, which include Quality Education, Affordable and
Clean Energy, Clean Water and Sanitation, Gender Equality, and Good Health and
Specifically, SHE-MOVES made a difference in Nigeria by
awarding a grant to Shuttlers, a female-owned app-based service that helps more
than 400 women move around in Lagos, which is seeing tremendous population
In South Africa, SHE-MOVES partnered with the Uhambo
Foundation of Cape Town to give children with special needs the mobility they
require; the grant to the foundation also empowers caretakers of these
children. In addition to the financial assistance, the SHE-MOVES mobility
program donated a Ford Tourneo Custom to the organization.
“We are extremely grateful to receive the SHE-MOVES grant and the donation of the Ford Tourneo Custom, both of which will assist us immensely in reaching out to more members of the community and help improve the lives of children affected by disabilities, particularly in the impoverished rural areas,” remarked Uhambo Foundation General Manager Sarah Driver-Jowitt.

The Ford Motor Company has built its legacy upon innovation.
That tradition shows no sign of stopping — at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America’s yearly
conference in Washington, D.C., the automaker unveiled the Ford Connected
showed off two innovations aimed at making the road a safer place for drivers
and pedestrians alike. These devices allow vehicles to communicate with other
vehicles and mobile devices through Bluetooth®, blockchain
encryption, and short-range communication technology.
first demonstration showed a roadside unit that allows vehicles to wirelessly
communicate with cyclists, pedestrians, and other road users. It allows
pedestrians to be notified of oncoming vehicles they might not notice.
second high-tech safety device aims to smooth out the issues inherent at
four-way stops. It gives drivers an easier way to determine right-of-way,
without the frustration of waving a hesitant driver on, while insisting,
“Please, you go first.” Instead, the vehicles will have a conversation,
ensuring smoother transitions and fewer miscommunications.
Connected Vehicle Platform and Product Executive Director Don Butler is excited
about the potential for these innovations. Aside from helping traffic run
smoothly, Butler is excited to gather more data about traffic, construction,
and emergency vehicles, so cities can strategically improve their infrastructure.
One of the newest innovations to come to the Ford lineup is
Key by Amazon. This enables delivery people to deliver packages from Amazon
inside of your car for safe keeping. Amazon’s goal for this service is to help
prevent packages from being stolen from your front porch. This feature is
available exclusively to Amazon Prime members.
The best part? You don’t have to go out and buy a new Ford
to get this functionality. Instead, drivers of Fords from the 2017 model year
and more recent years can add the functionality via FordPass Connect (assuming
the Ford model has that feature enabled).
So how does it work? You will receive a notification when
the delivery is about to occur and when it is complete. The delivery person
will only have access to your vehicle during that delivery period and must
verify that the vehicle has been locked after delivery. You also have the
ability to reroute the delivery (like if you unexpectedly move your car) or
reschedule (like if you will be driving your car all day).
Expect more innovations like this from Ford in the coming
years. For example, Ford is already considering a similar perk: mobile car
washes. This entails exactly what you’d imagine. While you sit in the office or
just enjoy a day at home, car washers will come to your Ford and wash it for you.
Contact us at L&L Motor for more information on Key by Amazon, or to set up a test-drive of your favorite Ford model.
Well-maintained tires are an important part of safe driving.
Here’s what you need to know about maintaining your vehicle’s tires.
Properly inflated tires are critical to your vehicle’s ride,
handling, and fuel economy. Check your tire pressure monthly, and before long
road trips. Always check the tire pressure when the tires are cold — heated
tires may show a falsely-elevated pressure reading.
Tire treads help your vehicle
maintain traction, even in slippery conditions. Therefore, it’s important to
monitor your vehicle’s tire tread depth.
To check the tread depth, flip
over a penny and place it into several tread grooves.
If part of Lincoln’s head is
always covered by the tread, the tires are still safe to drive on.
To get the most out of your tires, have them rotated every
5,000-7,000 miles. This ensures a proper wearing pattern. Consult your vehicle
owner’s manual for the correct rotational pattern, or bring it to our service
department at L&L Motor.
A wheel alignment prevents excessive, uneven tire wear,
improves your gas mileage, and gives you a smoother ride. If your vehicle pulls
to one side, has a shaky steering wheel, or your vehicle has uneven tire wear,
it’s time for a wheel alignment. Also, you should have this service performed
whenever you purchase new tires or suspension parts. Otherwise, have your
vehicle’s wheels aligned every 12-18 months.
If you have questions or need help maintaining your tires, bring your vehicle to our service department at L&L Motor.
