Benefits of Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™

Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

Being able to connect your smartphone to your vehicle is an amazing convenience that makes driving safer and smarter. New Ford vehicles with SYNC® 4 and SYNC® 4A go even further with built-in wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities.

With the wired version of this technology, you’d need to plug your phone in via a cable to pair it with the vehicle’s SYNC® system. But with SYNC® 4 and SYNC® 4A, you need only add a phone via the home screen, make sure Bluetooth® is enabled, match the PINs, and confirm the information. It’s that simple, and it lets you access apps and features via the touch screen instantly.

Without a cable being necessary, you can easily store your smartphone out of sight, eliminating distractions. Or if you pair this with a wireless charger, you’ll have a space that’s uncluttered and cable-free, letting you and your passengers better appreciate the details of Ford design.

Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are just two of the perks of SYNC® 4 and SYNC® 4A. Pair advanced smartphone connectivity with features like Ford Power-Up over-the-air updates, cloud-based connectivity, intelligent voice control, and built-in Amazon Alexa capabilities, and this generation is the most advanced version of SYNC® by a wide margin.

Learn more about what SYNC® 4 and SYNC® 4A can do at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. We offer the latest vehicles from Ford, including the F-150, Edge, and Bronco — all standard with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Ford is throwing it back to the past for the 2023 Bronco and Bronco Sport with new Heritage edition models. Both SUVs will be available with vintage-styled two-tone color schemes and retro badging, giving drivers tons of stand-out style in Glendale, Arizona.

The 2023 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport will both be offered as a Heritage or Heritage Limited model.

This makes the SUVs’ unique color options — including beautiful Robin’s Egg Blue, Yellowstone Metallic, and Peak Blue — pop even more.

“With these new Heritage and Heritage Limited editions, we’re paying respect to Bronco’s roots with nods to some of the signature design cues from the first-generation vehicle, while continuing to build the Bronco Brand with more special editions that our customers want,” says Ford Bronco Marketing Manager Mark Grueber.

While looks are a big part of the draw with the 2023 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport Heritage and Heritage Limited editions, performance and capability are what make them all true inheritors of the Bronco legacy. Every Bronco and Bronco Sport features 4×4 capabilities and a Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™, making these SUVs as off-road-ready as they are handsome.

The 2023 Ford Bronco Sport Heritage and Heritage Limited SUVs are available to order now, and the Bronco versions will go on sale later this year. If you’d like to get your hands on one before they’re all gone, reach out to the sales team at Sanderson Ford in Glendale.

Are you interested in the award-winning Maverick but wanted to wait and see what Ford had up its sleeve for 2023? Your patience is about to pay off — especially if you were holding out for a more off-road-capable model. The new 2023 Ford Maverick will be available with the popular Tremor Off-Road Package, bolstering its rugged capabilities even more.

Reasons to Buy a Dash Cam for Your Ford | Glendale, AZ

Dash Cam | Sanderson Ford |Glendale, AZ

Dash cams are more affordable and available than ever, and they can be a great asset for drivers. If you’re thinking about picking up a new dash cam for the brand-new Ford you’re planning to purchase from Sanderson Ford, there are a few reasons that make it worth considering.

Protection in the event of an accident

The main reason to buy a dash cam is that it safely and reliably records what happens as you drive. That means that if you’re struck by another driver and they misrepresent the nature of the collision, you can turn in your dash cam footage to contest their account. This can help you fight for your rights and save money out of pocket on insurance claims.

Protection from theft

Even with advanced security features, cars can get broken into. With a dash cam, you may be able to collect evidence of a crime after it’s been committed, which can be used to recover stolen goods and hold criminals responsible.

Relive the drive

Ever found yourself wanting to relieve the scenery after a beautiful drive through Arizona? Your dash cam lets you watch it back and take it all in again. What’s more, if you get a Ford Mustang and take it out to the track, you can use your dash cam to study how you drove and make tweaks that will help you reach your personal best lap.

Curious about what the best accessories are for your Ford? The experts at Sanderson Ford can help. Visit us in Glendale, Arizona, and we’ll make sure your Ford is always ready for the road.

Ford Joins First Movers Coalition in Sustainability Push

Ford Joins Movers Coalition | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

Ford is committed to making tomorrow a safer place for our planet, and that involves taking action today. In May, Ford announced that it plans to join the First Movers Coalition, which supports clean energy tech and innovation. The coalition gathers 50 major companies from around the world with a combined market value of $8.5 trillion.

As part of its contribution to the First Movers Coalition, Ford has committed to purchasing 10% near-zero carbon steel and aluminum by 2030. This aligns with the automaker’s science-based targets for emissions reductions by 2035 and the larger goal of being 100% carbon neutral by 2050.

“By joining the First Movers Coalition, Ford is signaling to the market that we want to work with our suppliers to achieve commercially viable green steel and aluminum,” said Sue Slaughter, Ford’s director of supply chain sustainability. “The intent and significance of our commitment today has the potential to help build the net-zero economy.”

Ford is also investing in products, committing more than $50 billion to the development and production of new electric vehicles through 2026. This investment is already paying dividends with the popular Ford Mustang Mach-E — available now at Sanderson Ford — and the red-hot F-150 Lightning.

There are a lot of big, exciting changes coming to Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona, thanks to the ever-expanding electrified Ford lineup. If you’re ready to make the leap with a new vehicle, check out our selection online or place a custom order today.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Offers Massive Mega Power Frunk

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

The new 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is coming later this year to Sanderson Ford and Glendale, Arizona. When it arrives, the F-150 Lightning will bring innovations like the Mega Power Frunk.

The Mega Power Frunk — frunk being short for front trunk — arose after Ford user experience designers spoke to Ford customers about their storage wants and needs. Truck customers wanted a space that was large, shaped to hold different kinds of cargo, and lockable and secure. A designer whipped out a cardboard box and made the first prototype for the Mega Power Frunk.

Standard for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, the Mega Power Frunk is designed to fit two golf bags comfortably. And besides being spacious, it has a rubberized, drainable floor that makes it super easy to clean. These features make it perfect for tailgating, camping, and much more.

Ford loaded the frunk with tons of smart features, too, like truck bed lights installed in the hood instead of inside the trunk to prevent cargo from blocking the lights. Four electrical outlets and two USB ports add functionality, letting you hook up laptops and other electronics on the go. Plus, you can open the frunk six different ways — from the key fob, a button in the grille, the FordPass™ app on your phone, and more.

The Mega Power Frunk is just one of many reasons to check out the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. It’ll begin arriving at Sanderson Ford this spring for customers who have already made their reservations and pre-orders. If you want to be one of the next in line, give us a call.

  • New Ford Expedition. If you think you’ll be in need of a new large family SUV next year, your timing is impeccable. The updated Ford Expedition launches in the spring with seating for up to eight, plenty of power, the latest in SYNC® technology, and a new Timberline trim with exceptional off-road capabilities
  • The first-ever Ford Bronco Raptor, F-150 Raptor R. Ford put the world on notice with the returning Bronco, and it’s about to do it again this year. Sometime in 2022, Ford will reveal the Bronco Raptor, an even more high-powered version of the SUV. Ford will also take the F-150 Raptor to new heights with the mysterious Raptor R, which some speculate will be supercharged

And that’s just some of what we know now — imagine what the next 12 months will reveal. One thing is for sure when it comes to new Ford vehicles coming in 2022 — expect excellence, intelligence, toughness, and even a bit of the unexpected.

Another thing that’s for sure: Whatever Ford brings to the table next year, you’ll find it at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. Have a safe, happy, and healthy New Year!
