“As breakthroughs in new technology allow us to help reduce the stress of long highway drives, it’s important to make sure these capabilities can be enjoyed by the largest spread of people possible,” said Hau Thai-Tang, the chief product platform and operations officer at Ford Motor Company. “Active Drive Assist can help improve the driving experience while ensuring people remain aware and fully in control.”

If you get a new F-150 when it launches at Sanderson Ford, you’ll be able to get what you’ll need to use the technology down the line in the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Active 2.0 Prep Package. With the Mustang Mach-E, the feature will be standard with the California Route 1 and Premium trims. Later versions of both will have the hardware baked in, and you’ll only need to pay to activate the software for three years.

The 2021 F-150 delivers payload up to 3,325 pounds, out-hauling the next-closest competitor by more than 1,000 pounds.** This further solidifies the all-new F-150 as the go-to truck for all things hard work.

Speaking of hard work, the class-exclusive PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 is no slouch when it comes to getting the job done. In addition to its standard Pro Power Onboard™ generator perfect for powering equipment, the F-150 PowerBoost™ offers max towing up to 12,700 pounds and a max payload of up to 2,120 pounds. The 2021 Ford F-150 once again leads the way, leaving other trucks to follow in its wake.

Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home

Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home | Sanderson Ford | Phoenix, AZ

Are you celebrating Halloween at home this year? You can still have a lot of scary fun. Check out these suggestions for family-friendly Halloween activities!

Make a haunted fort

Making a haunted fort right at home is a favorite among kids. You can start with a regular blanket fort and add spooky elements, like fake cobwebs and LED candles, or build something more elaborate if you’re feeling ambitious.

Make a Halloween scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts are always fun, and they’re even more fun when Halloween-themed. Better yet, all you need is a pen, paper and Halloween decoration you can reference.

Throw a face painting party

Kids love to paint. Buy a face-painting kit and let them go crazy trying to turn themselves — or you — into a spooky Halloween monster. Just make sure to have makeup remover at hand.

Host Halloween game night

Halloween game night can be as simple as playing a normal board game with a Halloween theme, like Halloween bingo. There are many, many variations of classic games you can find online. Good Housekeeping has a nice list to get you started.

Tell a spooky story

No Halloween is complete without a good, scary story. Sit around a backyard campfire and spook your children with a sinister (but family-friendly) tale. If you don’t have an outdoor area, an indoor fireplace works too.

When Halloween comes around, try a few different activities. Then, next year, you can do the most popular ones again with variations or more embellishment. It can become a family tradition!

It’s probably not a good idea to trunk or treat this year, but if you still need a new ride for a scary good price, make sure to check out Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. And also, happy Halloween!

To celebrate the Bronco’s 55th birthday, Ford launched five 2021 Bronco adventure concepts that show off just how easy it is to accessorize the Bronco to your liking.

The concepts use hundreds of the Bronco’s factory-backed accessories, making personalization just as big a part of the Bronco experience as extreme off-road capability.

One of the most notable concept is the Trail Rig, offered on both the four-door Bronco Sport and the two-door Bronco. Designed for the most serious off roaders, it includes 31-inch BFGoodrichMud-Terrain tires and a one-inch lift kit on the Bronco Sport, as well as a 40-inch light bar and a winch on the Bronco. You’ll need it to help out the people who made the mistake of not getting a Bronco before going off into the wilds.

When your active lifestyle require you to bring a lot of gear, that’s where the Bronco Sport TOW RZR comes in. Based on the Badlands series, it adds crossbars, a medium cargo basket and the Class II Trailer Tow Package to boost the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport’s towing capacity to 2,200 pounds, enough for an ATV.

And if you just enjoy fishing, Ford thought of you too. Based on the Outer Banks series, it uses fender-mounted trail sights to fit a custom-made fishing pole and seat perch so you can comfortably wait for the perfect catch. There’s also a slide-out tailgate, a useful platform for stringing up lures or repairing fishing rods when you need it.

These concepts only show off the hundreds of possible ways the 2021 Bronco is customizable. Learn more about the 2021 Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Sport at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona.
