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!

Ford is Best-Selling Vehicle Brand in America for the 10th Year Running

Ford is Best-Selling Vehicle Brand in America  | Phoenix, AZ

For the tenth year in a row, Ford has dominated the American auto industry as the best-selling vehicle brand in America. This year also marks the 43rd year that the Ford F Series has been the best-selling pickup truck in America.

According to a report detailing Ford sales in the last quarter of 2019, Ford truck sales were up over 15 percent from the fourth quarter of 2018, marking the best fourth-quarter truck sales for the brand in nearly 20 years. The Ranger saw its best sales quarter since its 2019 release. In total, Ford sold over 986,000 trucks in 2019.

The fourth quarter of 2019 was fantastic for Ford in plenty of other categories too. Q4 of 2019 was the best quarter for commercial vans since 1978 — that’s over 30 years — and the Expedition and EcoSport both saw significant sales increases over last year. Sales of the Explorer increased a whopping 52.4 percent over the previous quarter, and Mustang sales increased by 20.4 percent.

Ford saw minor drops in SUV sales and a massive drop in car sales, consistent with auto industry trends away from sedans and toward SUVs and trucks. It’s also significant to note that Lincoln, the luxury car division of Ford Motor Company, saw an impressive 30.9 percent increase in SUV sales.

One doesn’t become the best-selling vehicle brand in America for no reason. Visit Sanderson Ford to discover what makes Ford and its cars, SUVs and pickup trucks so great!

Ford Truck Leveling Kit Now Available

Ford Truck Leveling Kit | Phoenix, AZ

Off-roading in your Ford F-150 or Ranger has just gotten better. In a stunning first, Ford Performance Parts has unleashed an after-sale Ford truck leveling kit for both the F-150 and Ranger models, which will improve off-road performance and increase customization.

For starters, this leveling kit adds FOX™ shocks that have been uniquely optimized for the Ford trucks. Further, the aftermarket kit ups ground clearance (with a 2-inch left) and boasts new front coilover springs for an improved spring rate, new aluminum FOX shock bodies for easier cooling, and upper front mounts with polyurethane bushing to reduce unwanted noise and vibration.

So how does this improve off-roading in the F-150 and Ranger? According to Ford, F-150 trucks with the 145-inch wheelbase will benefit from a 22% in approach angle and 7% increase in breakover angle. Ranger models have a similar story: 21% increase in approach angle and 10% increase in breakover angle.

“Ford Performance Parts developed these kits to make the off-road experience even better for our Ranger and F-150 customers,” remarked Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “Truck customers are asking for options for increased capability and customization, and the new leveling suspension kits for Ranger and F-150 deliver on that need.”

You can order this offering at Sanderson Ford for just $1,495.

Future Ford Bronco Hybrid Confirmed

Ford Bronco Hybrid | Glendale, AZMichael Martinez of Automotive News tweeted a thread of updates from the annual Ford shareholder meeting, stating in one tweet that the CEO of Ford, Jim Hackett, “confirms the upcoming Bronco SUV will come in a hybrid variant as Ford focuses on electrifying its lineup.”

The tweet sparked a lot of interest in the automotive community, especially with how little is still known about the Bronco, which is set to debut in 2020 as part of the 2021 model year. Barely any spy shots have circulated so far, and while we know that the 2021 Bronco’s styling will be boxy and retro to echo the original, we don’t know much else.

According to MotorTrend, Ford will invest $11 billion in expanding its hybrid and electric lineup over the next several years, so it’s not a big surprise that the Bronco will be part of that push for greener cars and SUVs.

Details haven’t been released on what the Bronco’s engine options will look like, but industry journalists assume it will have the same four-cylinder turbo and V6 options as other Ford SUVs, and now a hybridized option. The Ford Bronco hybrid powertrain may be the same or similar to the 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-style hybrid engine found on the 2020 Ford Escape.

For more information on the upcoming Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Hybrid, watch this space. When they hit the streets, you’ll be able to find them right here at the Sanderson Ford showroom.

Sanderson Ford and Roush Performance Team Up To Raise Money For Military Assistance Mission

Sanderson Ford is at it again and this time, they are teaming up with Roush Performance for a double dose of American muscle in the form of the “Jack Roush Tribute” Mustang.  To be sold at the Barret-Jackson Auction, this Mustang has a very special purpose.

With the final auction price totaling to $175,000, not only will the proud owner have the 50th Anniversary Mustang AND the 30th Anniversary of Jack Roush’s Champion Motorcraft Mustang all in one, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM).  MAM is an organization that “serves local Arizona military, their families, and wounded heroes with financial and morale aide”, as stated by the MAM CEO, Margy Bons.

Margy Bons started MAM in honor of her son, Michael Adam Marzano, who fought and died for our country in Iraq.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was donated by Sanderson Ford and made into what it is by the Roush Performance team.  With a Phase 2 Roush-charged 5.0-liter V8 power plant that boasts an incredible 727hp, courtesy of Roush Performance’s R2300 TVS supercharger, this Mustang has more horsepower per liter than any other American muscle care on the market.

And the fun doesn’t stop there!  The white exterior keeps it classy while the red interior gives it a dangerous feel.  Want to not only be the envy of all of your friends, but also help a great cause?  You’ve come to the right place!

2015 "Jack Roush Tribute" Mustang - Military Assistance Mission

Peoria, Arizona

Peoria, Arizona is home to a wonderful community that thrives outside of Phoenix. The city boasts a population of more than 154,000 and has a number of interesting things to do and see. The history behind the now-thriving area has a major significance in the area. Paying a visit to Peoria isn’t something many regret, especially after they’ve stopped by one of the local hotspots!

The city’s roots lie with four families who relocated to the area from Peoria, Illinois. The new arrivals were quick to file a plot map, complete with streets. Their efforts brought the Santa, Prescott, and Phoenix Railroad which gave the city’s popularity a boost as a popular stop.

There are dozens of museums oriented around space but the Challenger Space Center offers a unique look at what lies above us. The learning environment is perfect for families and adults alike. Activities include simulated space flight missions where visitors can take on the role of mission control, flight crews, and more.

There are few better places to grab a steak than Firebirds Wood Fired Grille. This premier restaurant is a local favorite due to its friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, and delicious food that brings return visitors time and time again.

We here at Sanderson Ford hope to see you around Peoria sometime soon!
