2016 Ford Focus Preview

3-5-2015-'16FordFocus

The release date for the 2016 Ford Focus RS is unknown as of yet, so you’ll have to keep your eye on this space or stop by Richmond Ford for more information on this model as it becomes available. It is rumored that the new Focus could have up to 350 horsepower. This model is Ford’s answer to the Subaru WRX STI and the VW Golf R.

The RS model’s chassis will be based on the current model, more specifically, the Ford Focus ST, thus giving it an excellent ride. The exhaust layout is different. Wherein the ST features two center-exit outlets that share a tip, the RS will feature two wide-set outlets. Also new is a set of 19-inch Shelby GT500-like wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires. The front grille is almost wide open so it can scoop more air to help cool the radiator and intercooler.

The current Ford Focus makes 252 horsepower – 98 horsepower less than the rumored horsepower rating for the new Ford Focus. The new rating would not only increase this model’s performance, it would elevate the price.

Though Ford hasn’t released which engine it will be using, rumors state that it could be the 2.3-liter Ford EcoBoost turbo four-cylinder – the same one that powers the new Mustang. The transmission will most likely be a six-speed manual transmission; and the powertrain could be front- or all-wheel drive.

A fully loaded ST model can reach $30,000, so it is expected that the RS model will be at least that, though it is possible it may be just under that amount.

Visit Richmond Ford

If you are in the market for a new vehicle and don’t want to wait for the 2016 Ford Focus RS to be released, stop by Richmond Ford to test drive the current Focus or one of the Mustang models. If you do plan on waiting for the 2016 model year to be released or just want to learn more about the Focus, keep your eye on this space for more information as it becomes available.

Ford GT Makes Its Premiere!

3-3-2015-FordGT

It will be a while – sometime in 2016 – before the new Ford GT makes its appearance at Richmond Ford and other Ford dealerships; however, when it does, the supercar segment is going to be forever changed. The Ford GT debuted at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in early 2015.

This high-performance supercar will showcase innovation and technology along with highly efficient aerodynamics. It will feature an EcoBoost engine; and its lightweight carbon-fiber construction allows for a faster ride. At the track, every 100 pounds slows a vehicle down about a tenth of a second so every pound Ford shaves off the GT makes this supercar just that much faster. Additionally, handling, acceleration, safety, braking and efficiency are improved with the lighter body.

The design features slopes and shapes that maximize aerodynamic efficiency by minimizing drag and optimizing downforce. For additional speed and driver input, an active rear spoiler reactively deploys and adjusts its height and pitch angle based on driving conditions.

The GT will be released in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford GT race cars that placed first through third at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. The rear-wheel drive and mid-mounted engine setup helps with balance and cornering. The engine will be a next-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 with twin turbos and is expected to make over 600 horsepower. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will transfer the horsepower from the engine to the rear wheels.

The GT is the newest in the lineup of Ford supercars, which include the F-150 Raptor, the Focus RS, Shelby GT350R and the Shelby GT50. Keep your eye on this space or visit Richmond Ford for more information on the 2016 Ford GT or any of the supercars that are currently available.

Ford Bronco is Going Strong

2-24-2015-FordBronco

Kevin is a true testament that the Ford Bronco is a truck that’s in it for the long haul. He purchased his Ford Bronco back in 1989 from Richmond Ford. Today, it has 377,000 miles and is still going strong. From New York to Florida, his Ford Bronco has been through many scouting trips and even rescued other vehicles in distress stuck in mud. It even has the original engine. Not only has his truck been loyal to him, but he’s loyal to his lifelong friend. Kevin refuses to trade in his 1990 Ford Bronco for a newer model or any other truck.

So what makes him so loyal to his 1990 Ford Bronco? It’s a sturdy utility vehicle with four-wheel drive and an outdoorsy elegance. Back in 1990, the Ford Bronco came off the line with a choice of two V-8s or a 4.9 liter 150-horsepower straight-six engine. This rugged two-door truck defined a market niche, and Kevin was sold on it. Many others who have the 1990 Ford Bronco chime in right with Kevin and give it accolades for serious backwoods use, rock crawling and bogging. Others feel that there’s no other competing vehicle built in 1990 that would hold up as well. You still see tons of them on the road today.

From 1987 through 1991, the Ford Bronco saw some chances. A new aero-body style was added and most were being sold with electronic fuel injection. The Nite edition was also available from 1990 to 1992. All Broncos were constructed at the Michigan Truck Plan. V8 engines and automatic transmission became standard in the Nite, Silver and Eddie Bauer anniversary trucks.

If you’re looking for a used Ford Bronco in good condition, head on over to Richmond Ford. We offer $500 in service coupons along with outstanding customer service.
