Ford Reveals Buyer’s Tastes

Ford data reveals   about buyers around the US.  Who would think, looking around, that white was NOT the favorite Ford color in Arizona.  Would you guess Molten Orange?  Gold, silver, and finally, white round out the top colors. 

Seattle and San Francisco must have problems getting lost and parking their cars because they are tops in; BLIS, rear view cameras, active park assist, and navigation. 

You would think us Arizonans would own the air conditioned seat category, but we didn’t even rank in the top 5.  Would you have guessed Seattle, Denver, and San Francisco.  How about heated seats?  Can you believe Atlanta and Charlotte are in the top 5. 

Rainy and cold Seattle is also tops in moon roofs.  I guess better for watching the storm clouds!

Hybrid vehicles are #1 and #2 in Seattle and San Francisco, but Phoenix is #5 on this list.  Thanks 43 mpg with AC Fusion Hybrid.

In Arizona, we prefer diesels, hybrids,and  manual transmissions, but have no preference on gas engine size.

Those areas of the country looking for V-8 power include; Orlando, Memphis, Charlotte, Houston, and Seattle.  The economically minded (4 cylinder) people live in Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Detroit, Boston, and Denver. 

Coastal cities like muted colors while the Midwest has an affinity for red.  The east coast is definately green. 

New Yorkers consume the most vehicles with rear seat DVD systems.  Turns out Sponge pants Bob really is an effective babysitter.

The national pick-up truck capital is still shared by Dallas and Houston.  This is also the area with the highest demand for tow packages.  95% of Super Duty customers tow with their trucks. 

Using the data Ford collects allows it to maximize the model mix and deliver vehicles that actually meet customers need regionally.  The imports should try to figure this out.

Of course, if you want an east coast color, with Seattle options, Denver seats, and Texas towing capability, all you need to do is drop by Sanderson Ford.  If we don’t have it, we’ll be happy to order it for you!

Sanderson Ford Hosts the High Five Tour

High Five National Tour

Join Sanderson Ford as we host the Phoenix stop of the HIGH FIVE TOUR when it comes to Arizona on Saturday July 9th.  We will join in their ceremony and will have the Starliner Diner open as well as a display of classic and current Mustangs from the Wild West Mustang Club of Arizona.

Info on the HIGH FIVE TOUR-

On June 22, 2011 we will gallop across America in our 2011 Shelby Mustang GT-500 to thank Americans for their support of our military families and to raise funds and awareness for the mission of Wounded Warriors Family Support: Provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. 

Our 50 state capitol city drive/fly road trip is real street level engagement designed to meet as many Americans as possible and thank them for their support of our military families who have given so much. Remember:

“When America goes to war, our families go to war”

They need our help to cope with the psychological and spiritual stress on their relationships that can tear apart families.

It would be great to see you at our Phoenix road trip event this summer.

Fastest Car For the Dollar

For those looking for a fast car on a budget, look no further than the Ford Mustang GTForbes Magazine recently named the fastest inexpensive cars, according to starting MSRPs, and with its 5.0-liter V8 engine, the Mustang GT stole the show.

The cars were tested on how quickly they could go from 0-60.  The Mustang did so in just 4.8 seconds.  This is possible thanks to the relatively inexpensive sports car’s engine output of 412 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.  Helping the Mustang achieve the top speed are features like cold-air induction, an aluminum block, and twin independent variable camshaft timing.

The V6 version of the Mustang also shined on Forbes list as the least expensive car.  The smaller engine went 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, thanks again to Ford’s powertrain technologies.
