2021 FORD ESCAPE PHEV: A COMPETITIVE CAR-LIKE CROSSOVER WITH A HISTORY

When Ford officially announced the launch of their all new Escape (in partnership with Mazda) for model year 2001, it would have been impossible to guess at the history of this storied vehicle over the years. At the time, larger sport-utility vehicles tended to use pickup truck-based, body-on-frame designs. Ford and Mazda had, however, decided to offer a more car-like, unibody design with a fully-independent suspension and rack and pinion steering.

A different approach for the time, but one which continues to serve the blue oval corporation well to this day.

Even as far back as 2004, for model year 2005, Ford was already touting new, innovative ideas regarding greener automobiles and climate-friendly specific eco-technology – all with the goal of reducing the company’s carbon footprint and their reliance on fossil fuels – both for the vehicles coming off the line and for  those on our highways and byways.

Based on the midrange XLT trim level, the2005 Escape Hybrid included: the 2.3-litre DuraTec inline-four engine with an electric motor, power front bucket seats, low-back front bucket seats, enhanced partially-recycled cloth seating surfaces, and unique 16-inch alloy wheels. Options included a powered sunroof, a unique integrated GPS navigational system with hybrid information system, Satellite Radio, a seven-speaker premium audio system with amplifier and rear-mounted subwoofer, leather-trimmed seating surfaces, and a “two-tone” exterior paint scheme, with silver-painted lower exterior trim and front and rear bumpers.


Ford’s innovative approach to automobiles continues

Fast forward to the 2021 model year and much has changed – or perhaps « improved » would be a better word. Ford now offers two Escape hybrids – one of which is a plug-in – and those powertrains consist of a 2.5-litre four-cylinder combustion engine and two electric motors which combine to make 221-hp.

What’s new for 2021?

Ford has expanded the availability of the hybrid powertrain to the SE and SEL trims for 2021; it’s now standard on the top-spec Titanium model. Elsewhere, adaptive cruise control and a traffic-sign recognition feature join the optional Co-Pilot360 Plus package; a hands-free power lift gate and memory settings for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors are now part of the Technology package; and a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a keyless-entry keypad, and LED exterior lighting are now on the list of features in the Convenience package. A new 19-inch wheel design is also optional on the Titanium model.

Further, a 14.4-kWh battery and a 2.5-litre inline-four power the Escape, which can be fully charged in 3.5 hours at a 240-volt Level 2 charger. A single charge may yield as much as an additional 60 kilometres – based upon driving conditions. All in all, 6.4l/100kms may be anticipated for in-city driving!

Enjoy 0% Purchase Financing For Up To 72 Months + No Charge AWD – 2021 April Incentive

The 2021 Ford Escape has earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Ford offers a series of driver-assistance features, which it calls Co-Pilot360, as standard on every Escape model. Further, key safety features include standard forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking; standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist; and, standard blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Quite the package! The 2021 Ford Escape loaded and ready for a test drive here at Brock Ford Sales Niagara 905-357-5410.

2021 Ford Ranger, even more

The Ford Ranger is the mid-size truck that made a remarkable comeback in the Ford catalogue two years ago. It’s still early to renew a truck that has proven its capabilities and skills; however, 2021 will bring one major novelty: the presence of a Tremor version in the family. There are also new colours, including Cactus Grey and Velocity Blue, as well as the addition of a limited edition STX option package. But that’s where the changes end for this already modern pickup.

New Tremor Off-Road Package available on 2021 Ranger creates the most off-road-ready factory-built Ranger ever offered in the U.S., adding a new level of all-terrain capability without sacrificing the everyday drivability, payload and towing capacity Ranger owners expect.

Recognized engine

Under the hood of this midsize pickup is still the 2.3-litre turbocharged Ecoboost engine that made the vehicle famous. It provides 270 horsepower but adds an impressive 310 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a Ford 10-speed automatic transmission, the engine offers both fuel economy and power. It averages 10.9 L/100 km in combined mode while boasting a towing capacity of 3,400 kg (7,500 lbs); this puts it among the leaders in its class. All versions of the Ranger have this same engine. And there are quite a few versions, since the truck can be offered with a SuperCab or SuperCrew and have a choice of 2 or 4 wheel drive. Three trim levels, XL, XLT and Lariat, are available in the line, while styling packages modify the vehicle’s appearance a bit, including optional 18-inch wheels.

A Tremor version

New Tremor Off-Road Package available on 2021 Ranger creates the most off-road-ready factory-built Ranger ever offered in the U.S., adding a new level of all-terrain capability without sacrificing the everyday drivability, payload and towing capacity Ranger owners expect.

The real news for 2021, however, is the presence of a Tremor model. Inspired by the FX4 off-road version, but even more muscular, the Tremor off-road package is designed for rough roads. The entire suspension system has been redesigned. It includes a raised suspension with Fox 2.0 monotube shocks, while front coil springs and rear leaf springs complete the package. The Tremor is also equipped with Magnetic-painted alloy wheels to go along with the Grabber off-road tires, as well as many racier aesthetic elements. Even the Tremor’s interior has been redesigned with exclusive stitched seats but retains the comfort and accessories of the Ranger. To facilitate its off-road control, ground clearance has been increased, approach angles have been improved, and suspension travel has been improved. Still, it retains its towing capacity and maximum load capacity of 1430 pounds.

Safe and modern

The Ford Ranger, like many Ford models, has many driver assistance systems to ensure the safety of its occupants; for example, it comes standard with pre-collision assistance with automatic emergency braking. Other systems, such as lane tracking and blind spot information, are available on the top-of-the-line versions. The Lariat version even has adaptive cruise control. As for the optional Sync3 multimedia system, it can fit into a large screen in the center of the dashboard. Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility are standard.

A real pickup truck

The 2021 Ford Ranger is evolving. It offers even more versions, and even more capabilities, but doesn’t compromise on comfort or technology. It’s now more than ever the perfect work companion, and the road companion you can count on!

THE 2021 FORD EDGE: DOING IT ALL RIGHT

The 2021 Ford Edge is not new. And even though it has been in the Ford catalogue for a few years, it continues to fulfill its mission with elegance and efficiency. The many, sometimes minute, modifications made for 2021 make it even more attractive to those who want a comfortable vehicle with undeniable qualities.

2021 Ford Edge
Built to excite, the 2021 Ford Edge and performance-oriented Edge ST add smart new technologies, including a new standard largest-in-class 12-inch size center screen, all-new SYNC® 4A with connected built-in navigation and cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition, plus refinements to Edge’s interior and exterior design.

Physically, the Ford Edge hardly changed; neither the shape nor the dimensions of the vehicle have been altered. More particularly, it retains its easily recognizable grille and its slightly stocky proportions, which gives it a look of solidity and refinement. The only real aesthetic evolution is the introduction of a range of wheels from 18 to 20 inches on the standard versions to 21 inches on the ST version. Alloy, bright or brushed aluminum wheels validate the modern look of this mid-size SUV.

Impressive mechanics

To power this Ford Edge, Ford relies on two turbocharged engines from the Ecoboost family. Most versions use a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that provides 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. But a more dynamic, more muscular version is also part of the Edge’s catalogue. It’s the ST version, equipped with a 2.7-litre V6 that delivers 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

This type of engine provides effortless and satisfying accelerations, especially when paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission renowned for its smoothness.

Several versions

The basic Edge SE is only offered in all-wheel drive.  To opt for a front-wheel-drive version, you would have to go to the SEL, which offers both options. The next model up, the new ST-Line, is also available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive; however, it still doesn’t provide all the power of the most dynamic Edge model despite its name. Instead, it boasts an attractive package but doesn’t have the more powerful engine of the ST. The all-wheel-drive-only Titanium version complements the 2.0L engine lineup, while the V6-powered ST is also all-wheel-drive-only.

The switch from SE to SEL adds features such as an auto-dimming mirror, remote starter, power heated front seats (with three heat settings), roof rails, a reverse gear detection system in addition to the standard rearview camera, and an exterior entry keypad. This can become handy if you don’t want to carry your key to the beach or on your hike. Opt for the Titanium model, and you’ll get a hands-free tailgate, power steering column, wireless phone charging, premium sound system, leather seats and a few more bells and whistles.

A connected vehicle

In the Ford Edge, the interior is designed for comfort and space. It’s got plenty of room and plenty of accessories; more specifically, a touch screen houses the Sync 4 system that has long been recognized as one of the best in the industry. And since this is the latest update of the most advanced system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included, as is Bluetooth connectivity.

And when it comes to safety, the Ford Edge also stands out: all models are equipped with the Ford Co-Pilot360. This package includes Blind Spot Monitoring, Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Assist, Emergency Front Brake with Pedestrian Detection and Automatic High Beams. A more refined version, the CoPilot 360 Plus, is also available as an option. It adds numerous other driver assistance features that enhance occupant safety. Call Brock Ford Sales Niagara TODAY at 905-357-5410 to arrange a TEST DRIVE.

2021 Ford Edge At Brock Ford Sales Niagara

For 2021, the Ford Edge showcases mainly comfort features, such as a heated steering wheel to the Titanium model or acoustic windows that improve soundproofing on all versions.  That attracts attention!  But no matter which version you choose, the 2021 Ford Edge continues to combine comfort and fun and can even add performance. How many other family SUVs can say the same?

THE 2021 FORD ESCAPE, TECHNO- AND ECO-FRIENDLY

Experience The 2021 Ford Escape Today At Brock Ford Sales Niagara

The Ford Escape is one of the best-selling compact SUVs on the market. That’s only to be expected since its many versions and numerous technological advances make it a vehicle of choice for families or adventurous couples who don’t neglect driving pleasure.

The 2021 version offers even more, with the introduction of the hybrid versions, those of which we already knew, and the plug-in hybrid version, making the Ford Escape one of the most economical in the category.

Efficient engines

With the Ford Escape, economy and driving pleasure are its main personality traits. To achieve this, Ford has installed a set of engines capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding automobiles.

For example, the basic versions are available with the proven 180-hp, 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder Ecoboost engine. It comes standard with 8-speed automatic transmission but is only available on front-wheel-drive models.

The 4-cylinder 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine, however, offers standard all-wheel drive and an impressive 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. And for added driving pleasure, the 8-speed Selectshift automatic transmission is available with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

And this is where the Ford Escape gets greener since the other versions are more economical than ever. A standard hybrid version offers a 4-cylinder 2.5-litre Atkinson-cycle engine in a Titanium version. So we not only get power, but more importantly, an average fuel consumption of 6.9 L/100 km in combined mode.

THE 2021 Ford Escape AT BROCK FORD SALES NIAGARA

The big news for 2021, however, is the launch of a plug-in hybrid version. Equipped with the same 4-cylinder gasoline engine as its hybrid brother, it boasts a larger battery and plug-in charging. It can deliver 209 horsepower and, more importantly, an electric range of some 61 kilometres in gas-free mode.

Safety on the menu

With Ford, safety is also essential. That’s why the Ford CoPilot 360 package is standard on the entire Ford Escape lineup. The following features are the six core technologies:

  • Backup Camera (now standard on all models)
  • Automatic high beam headlights
  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Assists in maintaining track – Provides both warning and management intervention.
  • Driver Monitoring System – Monitors a drowsy or inattentive driver.

The high-end models also add the CoPilot Plus version, providing intelligent cruise control and speed zone recognition as available features.

Comfort and convenience

But the Ford Escape is more than just safety. It’s also about the comfort of well-thought-out, heated seats, depending on the version, and a spacious, well-designed interior.

For enthusiasts, the Ford Escape can also become a partner in your adventures. The intelligent all-wheel-drive system allows you to cross more challenging areas. The vehicle’s maximum towing capacity, established at 3500 pounds when properly equipped, will also enable you to carry a small trailer or snowmobiles on a trailer.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FORD EXPLORER 2021

Test Drive the 2021 Ford Explorer Today At Brock Ford Sales Niagara

The Ford Explorer is the mid-size SUV that Ford fans love. Significantly redesigned in 2020 and available in several trim levels, it continues to improve in 2021 with some noteworthy new features.

But it maintains the features that made it so famous in the first place. For example, it includes three rows of seats that you can actually use; that’s not always the case in vans of this size. It also has a large cargo area, making it a wise family-friendly choice while giving it an advantage in terms of versatility.

Because of it’s modern sophistication, it also has all the connectivity options that have become indispensable, from Android Auto and Apple Car Play to the possibility of having an Internet network in the vehicle.

Every version is all-wheel drive, which is not the case with our neighbours south of the border.

The base and XLT models are equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. And while a hybrid powertrain is available as an option on the Limited model, the Platinum and high-end sport ST models are equipped with a twin-turbo V-6 engine. Having said that, all versions have adapted to the 10- speed automatic transmission that Ford has developed.

A few changes

For 2021, Ford has chosen to keep the same versions. However, we improved on comfort by offering heated seats as standard features, and offered an optional heated steering wheel.

A sporty-looking package is now available on the XLT version, including 20-inch Carbon Grey aluminum wheels. In addition to the upgraded wheels, the package also consists of a mesh grille with Carbon Grey accents, as well as a unique rocker panel, dual exhaust outlets, light slate-coloured interior trim, fake skid plates, and much more.

Hybrid and economical

More powerful versions of the Ford Explorer are also available. The 400 horsepower of the ST version, for example, allows you to move the SUV with surprising enthusiasm in a vehicle of this size. The 3.0- litre twin-turbo V6 engine is impressive, and since the gearbox has also been adapted for these specifications.

Ford can now boast an SUV with a lively and dynamic response. It should be noted that the same engine also equips the Platinum version but is configured differently for 365 horsepower.

Having said that, the basic versions are not to be outdone. Their engine, a 300-hp, 2.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with 300 horsepower, is more than enough to get the job done, making the Explorer one of the most fuel-efficient in its class.

However, the real find is the hybrid version, which has joined the Explorer lineup for 2021. It combines a 3.3-litre V-6 engine with an electric motor for a combined output of 318 horsepower.

Interior and comfort

The cabin of the Ford Explorer is pleasant and well thought out. It’s functional and offers plenty of room for occupants, no matter what seat they’re sitting in. Even access to the rear seats has become more accessible thanks to a new mechanism that allows the second- row seat to be removed at the touch of a button.

An 8.0-inch touch screen infotainment display is standard. To get the optional 10.1-inch vertically oriented display, you’ll need to upgrade to the Platinum or ST version; however, each model is available with voice-activated navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system. A 12-speaker B&O audio system also comes standard in almost all models.f

Safe, comfortable and powerful – it can tow up to 5100 pounds if adequately equipped – the 2021 Ford Explorer certainly has a version that will meet your needs. Call Brock Ford Sales TODAY to schedule a TEST DRIVE of the exciting 2021 Ford Explorer 905-357-5410.

FORD F-150 2021, BUILT FOR WORK AND PLEASURE

Enjoy $1000 Rebates On 2021 Ford F – 150 NEW ORDERS AT Brock Ford Sales Niagara

The Ford F-150 pickup has been the best-selling vehicle in North America for decades. The 14th generation of this light truck, the 2021 model, continues to benefit from an exceptional heritage and displays a renewed design and an abundance of new additional technologies. A long list of new features and exceptional attributes will continue to define the new Ford F-150.

Powertrain

A powered by rechargeable electric batteries pickup truck will not be available to the public until model year 2022. In the interim, Ford is ready to introduce a step towards electrification by offering a powerful hybrid version of the number one selling light truck in North America. Equipped with a brand new engine called PowerBoost, this new powertrain is a complete hybrid system that targets the best power and torque in its class. Ford engineers have advised it should have a total range of more than 1,100 kilometres on a single tank of gas in combination with the additional benefit of regenerative electrical power. Not to mention that it will be able to tow up to 12,000 pounds.

But that’s just one of the engines available on this 2021 F-150 pickup. Here is a complete list of available optional engines and available power:

· 3.5L PowerBoost hybrid engine (new) 470 hp (est.) 525 lb-ft (est.)

· 3.5L EcoBoost Twin Turbo engine, 375 hp * 470 lb-ft *

· 3.5L EcoBoost Twin Turbo engine (high efficiency) 450 hp * 510 lb-ft *

· 3.3L TI-VCT V6 (Duratec) 290 hp * 265 lb-ft *

· 3.0L 250hp Turbo Diesel * 440hp * 440 lb-ft *

· 2.7L EcoBoost Turbo, 325hp * 400 lb-ft *

· 5.0L TI-VCT V8 (Coyote) 395hp * 400 lb-ft *

*based upon the 2020 model year.

Design

In terms of style, the 2021 Ford F-150 is considered more of an evolution than a revolution. While the overall appearance of the new truck is more elegant, it is considered a more modern interpretation of the outgoing model. Ford calls this a “harder, more solid look.” First impressions indicate that the wheel arches are larger than before, and the truck is a little wider overall.

The interior also receives significant modifications, including the possibility of an optional 12-inch central screen housing the latest generation SYNC4 system. Ford’s SYNC 4 communications and entertainment system brings new levels of intelligence and twice the computing power of SYNC 3 to help make navigation, music, and connecting your vehicle to your smartphone faster and easier. With the addition of all-new cloud connectivity, SYNC4 ensures drivers and passengers always have access to the latest information – from the closest restaurant to the nearest electric vehicle charge station!

Another interesting design/ergonomic feature “focuses” on the transmission lever, housed in the centre console. Now it will be completely retractable and, once folded, leaves room for a sliding work table. And finally, the rear seats lift and can offer a lockable cargo space.

Technology and work

The 2021 Ford F-150 also has a long list of technology and tools to make work and user comfort easier. For example, the tailgate folds down and incorporates a work surface with a convenient ruler for the most common measurements.

Technology also serves safety since the 2021 F-150 will be the only truck in its class to offer true hands-free driving with Active Drive Assist. It will also provide class-specific intersection assistance, which will help prevent accidents when the driver makes a left turn. Active Drive Assist can automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision.

The list of features and available technology is even longer – as are the performance and customization possibilities. Call Brock Ford Sales Niagara to arrange your TEST DRIVE TODAY at 905-357-5410 or SCHEDULE ONLINE!

The raised roof offers ample headroom, and the cargo area is the largest in its class and can accommodate two mountain bikes – if you have the optional accessory to do so! There’s even a storage bin under the rear seat to store your muddy clothes once the ride is over. And some versions even have washable rubber floor mats!

Techno and comfortable

The 2021 Bronco Sport’s dashboard will be quite familiar to Ford vehicle enthusiasts. It features traditional controls as well as an 8-inch touch screen that houses the innovative Sync 3 multifunction system. Either Apple Car Play or Android Auto are also available, offering further convenient utility for the user. Make no mistake, Ford designers and engineers have ensured that the Sport comes equipped with features designed to make it easy to drive. Of course, it has a rearview camera as standard, and a front-facing camera pointing to the trails, if necessary. To make the possibility of off-roading even easier, the Bronco Sport also gets the GOAT (Go Over Any Terrain) system, a driving mode selector that allows you to select more extreme modes, such as Slippery, Sand, Baja, Mud and, Rock crawling. The latter is only available on the Badlands version, however. Of course Normal, Eco, Sport modes are also available.

WHY THE MACH E IS A REAL MUSTANG

New 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E

Arriving Soon To Brock Ford Sales Niagara

It caused a lot discussions between the enthusiasts. In fact, it stole the show from the Los Angeles Auto Show, both for its performance and technology, and for its name. If you haven’t guessed yet, this is about the Ford Mustang Mach E, the first of a long line of 100% electric vehicle that Ford will offer in the future.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach E Arriving Soon To Brock Ford Sales Niagara

Technically, the Mach E is a success. With its five versions, its range of up to 480 kilometers and the ability of its GT version to accelerate like a racing car, it is spectacular. You just have to take a look inside, to admire the large 15.5-inch central screen, or the smallest screen that serves as a dashboard for the pilot, to realize the effort invested in this vehicle to make it innovative and spectacular. But then, why was a sport utility vehicle called Mustang called? A question that purists (and that we, too) are often asked. The answer is simple: because the Mach E has everything you need to be a Mustang, except the traditional form. Let’s first take the time to define what a Mustang is: it is a car with spectacular performance. The Mach E can accelerate, with its GT Performance, up to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. We can say that the comparison holds.

THE FUTURE OF EXHILARATION
Welcome to the Stable: All-Electric Mustang Mach-E.

It’s a car (the Mustang) that made history. We can safely say that the Mach E has already done the same thing if we judge by the comments collected everywhere. It is a car that has lasted over time. True, but it has evolved and changed a lot over the years. We must therefore perceive the Mach E as an evolution of what the modern Mustang will be. It is a car with an easily recognizable physique. Look at the Mach E: it shares the rear lights, the galloping horse, and the general, but elevated, silhouette of the traditional Mustang. So Mustang yes or no? In fact, it really doesn’t matter. Suffice it to know that it is an avant-garde vehicle, with spectacular technical capabilities, and that it will be available next fall. But hurry and book it now. When the future shows up, you have to grasp it quickly! Contact Brock Ford Sales Today at 905-357-5410.
