More Than 100,000 People Have Reserved the F-150 Lightning

2022 Ford F150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

Eager to experience the Ford F-150 Lightning for yourself? You aren’t the only one. Since May, well over 100,000 people have signed up to reserve this exciting new all-electric pickup.

The F-Series truck lineup is already wildly popular and profitable. Adding the F-150 Lightning represented a risk for Ford, as it wasn’t clear whether there would be a big demand for an electric truck. But now, with reservations continuing to pile up, there’s no doubt that Lightning sales will be red-hot.

The F-150 Lightning makes buying an electric pickup look like an extremely attractive option. Not only do you get up to 300 miles of driving range, but the Lightning doesn’t skip a beat when it comes to traditional pickup capabilities. The numbers say it all: 563 horsepower, 775 lb-ft of torque, 10,000 pounds in max towing, and 2,000 pounds of max payload.

The Lightning also comes loaded with innovative features like the Ford Intelligent Backup Power mobile generator, BlueCruise hands-free driving tech, Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, and so much more.

The F-150 Lightning will arrive at dealerships in spring 2022, but it’s available to reserve now at Ford’s website and at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. Give us a call to learn more about this groundbreaking new truck.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition is Already Sold Out

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E | Phoenix, AZ

The Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric performance SUV may not come out for many more months, but the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is already out of reservation slots. As of December 30 of last year, some models such as the GT and Premium were still available, but that may have changed in the past few weeks.

Ford released a few pieces of data compiled from the Mach-E pre-orders, including that over a quarter of all orders came from buyers in California. There’s a small preference for all-wheel drive over rear-wheel drive — 55 percent of orders are AWD — while the extended range battery is much more popular than the standard range at 80 percent of pre-orders.

Ford first announced the new Mustang Mach-E, the first expansion on the Mustang lineup in its 55-year run, in November of 2019. The Mach-E is designed to deliver the thrilling ride of the Mustang sports car, plus the added utility of an SUV, topped off with all-electric performance that is both exhilarating and environmentally friendly.

Ford estimates that the Mach-E will have an all-electric range of around 300 miles, though EPA testing has not been completed yet. The Mach-E’s engine and electric motor combined will put out 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, and Ford is tweaking the GT Performance Edition for leading acceleration at 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.

Just because the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is sold out doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands on Ford’s exciting new electric SUV. Call Sanderson Ford and let us know about your interest in the Mach-E!

Since 1964, the Ford Mustang has been turning heads and making hearts pound with its impressive looks and performance. Now, the Mustang lineup is moving into the future with the introduction of an all-new, all-electric Mustang SUV dubbed the Mach-E that will be just as thrilling as its legendary counterpart.

Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company, said, “Today, the Ford Motor Company is proud to unveil a car that strikes like forked lightning all over again [like the Model T]. The all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s freedom. For a new generation of Mustang owners.”

The Mach-E will be powered by an impressive combination of motors and batteries and will be available in standard and extended-range configurations. With an extended-range battery, the Mach-E is expected to have a driving range of over 300 miles. It will also have an estimated output of 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque.

You will also be able to choose a special performance version called the GT Performance Edition. This model is expected to have a 0-60 mph time in the mid-3-second range and will have an output of about 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque.

With numbers like this, the Mach-E shows that electric cars are no longer slow and boring. Reserve your Mustang Mach-E SUV at Sanderson Ford.
