Ford Wins Highest Retained Value Award

Highest Retained Value

When buying a new vehicle, most buyers tend to want the best value initially, but wouldn’t you like to know you can still drive a car you love without taking a huge depreciation hit? The Ford F-150, Ford Edge, and Ford Transit Connect all have been awarded the Highest Retained Value from TrueCar! The 2014 models were given this award for their longevity and product competitiveness within their respected segments.

The 2014 F-150 is the proud winner of the full-size pickup category for the 2016 TrueCar Pre Owned Value Award. Why you ask? That’s because the Ford F-150 has been given praise for its combination of class leading technology and durability. In fact, the competition is outnumbered, as there are more F-Series trucks on the road with over 250,000 miles then other full-size pickup brands! I guess there’s a reason why the F-150 has been America’s best selling truck for 39 years strong!

The 2014 Edge was also a winner for the midsize SUV with second row seating category. Ford completely redesigned the Edge for the 2015 model year, and the 2016 continue to improve on that greatness! We praised the Edge for its amenities and excellent driving abilities in our review, and buyers seem too agree! With available features, such as a 2.7L EcoBoost engine, active park assist, and 180-degree camera, the 2016 Ford Edge is a pinnacle of Ford technologies that create a fun driving experience that is also focused on safety.

The 2014 Transit Connect won the top ranking for the midsize commercial vehicle category. We’ve described Ford vans as faithful companions in the past, and this award proves that statement. Along with the Transit and E-Series vans, Ford’s vans are the bestselling commercial vehicles in all 50 states, and Washington D.C. If you need a maneuverable van for your small business needs, the Transit Connect is worth a look!

Ford’s 2016 lineup is expanding on these successes to create the best vehicles out there. So when the time comes to upgrade to a newer model, you can be sure that the technologies you love will be better then ever, and with the Highest Retained Value in their classes, these vehicles are some of the best buys out there!

Ford at the 2014 SEMA Show

2015 RTR Mustang

It’s time for SEMA 2014, and we here at Ford Addict know what that means! It’s that time of year again when automakers and tuners alike take factory stock cars, and modify them to show off not only new designs and technology, but also to show off the potential these vehicles have in the aftermarket. What is SEMA you ask? For those who are unfamiliar with the term, it stands for the Specialty Equipment Market Association. This group is full of different members and companies who produce equipment to modify, restore, and add new tech to older and late model cars. Many Ford vehicles were on display at the 2014 SEMA show, and everything from the Transit van to the classic Ford GT were shown with some unique custom flair. Read More

Best Ford Advertisements

Best Ford Advertisements

While every ad aspires to be like something created from the mind of Don Draper from Mad Men, most ads can be easily forgotten and somewhat boring. Some ads are just plain sad, like those puppy ones with the song “Angel” playing in the background. But, there are some ads that can distract us from watching our favorite shows for a brief amount of time, and actually enjoy it! New TV ads evolved from ads in magazines, which also were meant to catch your eye while flipping through pages. We’ve decided to look into advertisements by our favorite vehicle brand over the years. Here’s our list of the best Ford advertisements ever made!
