Ever wondered what goes into building the Ford F-150? As it turns out, quite a lot of time, and quite a few people. But if you're interested in learning more about the specifics, Bloomberg journalist Matt Miller was recently allowed inside the plant to see his truck built and roll off the assembly line.
The polar vortex is probably be behind us (knock on wood), and temperatures will hopefully be more friendly to everyone here in Kansas City, Missouri.
The frigid temps that we were subjected to this winter have not been kind to automobiles, and for those who work from their ride this season was probably far from fun.
If your work vehicle sputter and died during the polar vortex there is a way to get your business...
We here at our Kansas City, MO have been hearing a lot about the all-new 2015 Ford F-150, and needless to say, we're rather excited. While maintaining the excellent performance and towing capability, Ford made a lot of changes to its flagship pickup, including a lighter frame and a new lineup of engine options. We're curious to see how people on the job plan on using their new F-150, and apparently so is?
As you know, at the Midway Ford Truck Center in Kansas City, MO we specialize in the Blue Oval's heavy-haulers. However, that certainly doesn't mean that we're unfamiliar with the other models in the American automaker's diverse lineup; we are.
It probably comes as no surprise, but we've got nothing but praise to sing about the 2014 Ford Fiesta. Not only was it named the Best Car of 2013 by the gang at Top Gear last month, but our customers here at Midway Ford Truck Center just can't seem to get enough of it.
When an automaker makes a claim that their next generation pick up is "the most durable and capable" of its ilk ever, your ears have to perk up a bit. That appears to be the case with the 2015 Ford F-150, which rolled out onto the stage in Detroit this week.
The Ford F-150 is hugely popular in the truck segment. Just when we though it couldn't get any bigger the model is getting all sorts of attention now that it has been released with the all-new EcoBoost engine.
At Midway Ford Truck Center we love the boosted F-150 because it supplies amazing power in an efficient package. Apparently we are not the only ones however. Ford recently announced 400,000 units equipped with EcoBoost have been purchased since it was released in February 2011.
That means there have been 2 million EcoBoost engines put out into the world since…
Plant life is an essential part of our global ecosystem. back in 2009 the Coca-Cola Company began experimenting with plant life for a new purpose-- as a resource for creating bio degradable plastics.
It has been dubbed PlantBottle Technology, and we now have a great new alternative to petroleum based plastics called PET plastics.
Since hitting the scene in 2009, PET plastics have been used to manufacture 18 billion packages, saving an estimated 400,000 barrels of oil. This caught the eye of Ford, which asked Coca-Cola to help apply the new technology to manufacture car fabrics.
Coca-Cola was happy…
