Here at your Louisville area Ford dealership, we tend to get excited about the new Ford vehicles coming onto the market. But we also know that for many drivers in Shelbyville, used Ford cars are a much better option than new. Luckily, we’ve got you covered there as well! There are a variety of reasons a used Ford truck or car might be a better choice for you. For starters, you won’t have to worry about that instant depreciation when you drive off the lot – used cars don’t lose much value just because they’re going to a new home. And, of course, there are the cost savings. There’s no denying that a used Ford truck will run you less than a brand new 2017 Ford F-150. This gives you a chance to get a great car that you might not be able to afford new.
With the holidays coming up and all of the traveling and gift expenses that come with them, it’s easy to worry about your budget. But sometimes, you can’t or don’t want to put off purchasing a new car, whether you need it for your daily commute or you’ve been waiting to treat yourself. Luckily, we can help at your Shelbyville Ford dealership thanks to our wide variety of specials and incentives that will make getting your new car less stressful and more budget friendly.
Last month, the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) announced the results of their 23rd annual Texas Truck Rodeo. You don’t have to live in Texas to appreciate that the Truck Rodeo is one of the toughest auto competitions around. The TAWA Truck Rodeo features two days of competition for most of the trucks on the market that year. This year, more than 70 TAWA journalists gathered to steer the trucks through a variety of on- and off-road courses and determined which were the best across a range of categories. When it came to the top category, the answer was clear: the Ford Super Duty, for the 13th time in its history, was honored with the prestigious Truck of Texas award. Continue Reading
The Ford Mustang recently made the jump across the ocean with the all-new version of the iconic model debuting in Europe. Over 21,000 Ford Mustang units have been sold in Europe, and there are two countries in particular that have really taken to the model. Over half of the Ford Mustang European sales were accounted for by Britain and Germany – perhaps not the likeliest countries to have fallen hard for an American muscle car, although anyone who has driven the newest Ford Mustang can understand the appeal. But there’s another country that, while it accounts for fewer sales, has shown even more enthusiasm for the recently arrived sports car. Continue Reading
For many drivers, the 2017 Ford F-150 is the perfect truck as-is. It’s the smartest, toughest, and most powerful version of the truck yet and helps drivers get the job done. But for those who are a little more demanding, whose jobs require a little more power, or who want a truck that will deliver off-road as well as on-road, there’s an even more powerful version of this popular truck on its way: the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The all-new Ford F-150 Raptor boasts more horsepower and more torque than earlier versions of the high-performance truck, which couple with a substantial reduction in weight to increase performance on and off the road.

For a large percentage of people, fall brings something very special: the return of football! And any fan of both football and trucks would be able to tell you that the popular sport and the popular Ford F-150 have a lot in common.

It may seem like and impossible dream, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned from every Ford truck, SUV, and car, it’s that when Ford automakers put their mind to it, they can create something above and beyond what might seem possible.
