Since its beginnings in 1903, the Ford company has always been a pioneer and a brand that looked out for its customers. It all started with just a handful of investors and $28,000. However, after Ford started selling its first vehicle — the Model A — it turned a profit of $37,000 within its first year in business. That would kick off an absolutely legendary run for this company.
Ford has always been not just an innovator but also an advocate for the working American. When Ford created the assembly line in 1913 and shortly after introduced the $5 payday (a big pay bump for the time), it became clear that Ford was looking to create better working conditions for its employees. Later, they'd even participate in signing a major contract to ensure better benefits for workers.
The assembly line was part of what allowed Ford to start doing what it would become known for: making great vehicles at an affordable price. It started doing this already in 1908 with its Model T, a groundbreaking vehicle in terms of commercial affordability. Once the assembly line cut the production time for a Ford vehicle from roughly 15 hours to one hour, the manufacturer was ready to send vehicles flying off the shelves. And that it did. Ford sold 15 million Model Ts by 1927.
Ford made many famous vehicles in its time, including the F-Series of trucks, first released in 1948. The original F-Series was available in eight sizes and weight ranges. It came out on the heels of Ford creating the first commercially successful V8, initiating Ford's legacy as a company that delivers powerful vehicles to the public.
In 1985, Ford amazed everyone with the Taurus. It was distinctly different looking than the boxy sedans of the time and revolutionized quality standards for its vehicle category. Come 1990, Ford would kick off the SUV craze with its Explorer. Ford has continued to deliver inspiring features that are ahead of its time, and we are proud to carry this name on our lot.
No matter what vehicle category you're shopping for, we carry all of the most iconic Ford models. It's important to us to keep an always updating, diverse inventory so that drivers of every lifestyle and need can find what they're looking for.
If you're after a highly capable, versatile, and reliable pickup, check out our selection of F-150 trucks. Ford recently celebrated a milestone with the F-Series truck, as it became the best-selling truck in America for 46 years in a row. When drivers want solid towing and payload figures, impressive standard features in the cabin, and powerful engine options, they know an F-150 is the way to go. We carry many generations and trims and would love to help you find your perfect F-150.
Off-road enthusiasts can check out the Ford Bronco. Bronco lovers went wild in 2021 when Ford announced they'd be bringing back this popular off-road SUV after 25 years away from the lineup. It has classic, boxy, and burly looks, several engine options, and dynamic trims for every personality. The Bronco is a classic adventure vehicle. It's hard to look at one and not want to head out into the unknown.
Our muscle car enthusiasts can check out a Ford Mustang. Ford gained a cult following when it first released this iconic sports car in 1964. They proved to the world that a thrilling behind-the-wheel experience and roaring engine didn't have to cost an arm and a leg. If you're looking to have tons of fun behind the wheel, ask us what Mustangs we have in store. Of course, we also carry all of Ford's popular SUVs. From their compact Escape all the way to the full-size Expedition, we have SUVs for small and large families alike.
We pride ourselves on having a team of sales representatives who are experts on the Ford lineup. They know precisely what infotainment, safety, and comfort features every Ford model has. They know the cargo capabilities of each vehicle on our lot and which ones can tow massive trailers. Speak to one of our expert associates; they will help you find a vehicle that's right for your needs.
