Let’s face it. If cars aren’t fun - ever - what’s our team at Humber Motor Ford even doing here? Even the most serious car buyer will tell you that there is a certain feeling they’re looking for when they get behind the wheel. Cars can absolutely be both practical and fun. When you tell us you’re looking for a little fun, we will likely ask questions about adventure, agility, cosmetics, and how the test drive feels.
There’s just something about heading off the beaten path. Rough, rugged, unpaved backroads are a road less traveled. It’s fun. It’s exhilarating. It feels a little dangerous. That rush is completely normal, and you should look for a vehicle that will help give you that extra jolt every now and then.
At the same time, if you need a good, solid truck for practical reasons, the Ford F-150 should be a consideration. When you’re not working, the Ford F-150 is great fun to take off-road.
There is a reason the Ford F-150 is a bestseller. With 13,200 lbs. of available towing, the F-150 outperforms every other truck in its class when hauling cargo in the bed. It can handle any adventure you’re hoping for. With six engines to choose from, it provides the performance you need. Don’t forget naturally aspirated V8 gas powerplants with advanced twin independent variable cam timing. Turbocharged and port-fuel/direct-injected (PFDI) gas EcoBoost V6 engines. And the 3.oL Power Stroke Turbo Diesel.
It’s fun to load up the F-150 and take off. It will do wonders for your perspective.
We’ve all seen the movie moment when the main character gets behind the wheel of a car and heads for some mountainous destination. Fall leaves are usually fluttering in the background, soft music plays, and the vehicle maneuvers effortlessly around sweeping turns and up steep hills, usually catching a glimpse of a waterfall or even a windswept beachside.
It’s the vehicle’s agility that creates that scene. There are a number of vehicles in the Ford inventory that can safely maneuver you through the practicality of commuter traffic, and as soon as you’re ready, have you whipping through those movie-like vistas, too.
The Ford Edge is a perfect example of a vehicle that’s highly prized for its practicality by growing families, commuters, and small-business owners looking for some cargo space. At the same time, the Edge affords the weekender in you all the thrills, too, with a standard front-wheel drive (and optional Intelligent All Wheel Drive,) Torque Vectoring Control, Independent Front and Rear Suspension, and Advance Trac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and Curve Control.
Advance Trac with RSC and Curve Control uses gyroscopic sensors to measure vehicle roll and turning rates. If you corner or swerve too quickly, the RSC applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to keep your vehicle under control. So, you don’t have to worry about those sweeping movie-like curves. We’ve got you covered. Have fun!
It’s awesome to walk into your driveway, look at your vehicle and think, “Man. I can’t believe that’s mine!” That is exactly how we want you to feel. It doesn’t matter if you’re buying with practicality in mind. If you’re purchasing a vehicle, it should make you smile.
Our modern paint schemes for each make and model are a good place to start grinning. With names out of a storybook, we have a color to match your personality - magnetic, rapid red, star white, dark Persian green - and that’s only a sampling of what’s available.
Our customers should feel their investment is worth it. To that end, we pay close attention to cosmetic detail. Our intricate detailing on the 2020 Edge ST enhances the cosmetics of the model. With 20-inch premium gloss black-painted aluminum wheels, LED signature lighting with a black bezel, and a steering wheel with red accent stitching, you will be sure to turn some heads!
You may be surprised to know that even on the rough and tough F-150, we have custom appearance packages available that include chrome bumpers with body-color front fascia, fog lamps, and upgraded wheels.
The best way to determine the fun factor of your vehicle is to drive it! We want you to buckle into several makes and models. You’ll need time to kick the tires and really inhale that new-car smell. Run your hands over the seat, adjust the steering wheel to fit your comfort level, and then let’s find some movie-quality cityscapes or windswept terrain to drive through. Test drives are a big deal, and you need time for yours.
Humber Motor Ford salespeople know exactly what that “Golly! This is my car?” feeling means. Knowledgeable and eager to help you, we know the fun factor is at least as important as all the financing and fuel economy data. Come find fun!
