Consumer Reports likes to put together lists of the best and worst for vehicles in certain categories like fuel economy and price. But there is one that gear heads and adrenaline junkies like to see the most, and that is the Best and Worst Acceleration. In this ranking, the Ford Mustang GT Premium acceleration jolted into a tie for first.

Ok, ok we know that ties are what you like to hear, but at least it beat out over 100 other models including the BMW 135i, Nissan 370Z Touring, and the Audi A8 L. Capable of going from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, the Ford Mustang GT Premium acceleration tied with the Chevy Camaro SS and the Chevy SS.

Great acceleration and agility does come at a cost, though. Just like Consumer Reports references, your fuel economy will probably suffer if you try to utilize this power at ever stop.

Are you ready for a thrill of ride that will push your brains back into your headrest? Morristown Ford is currently carrying one 2014 Mustang GT Premium on the lot so get in quick to test it out before it is too late and you are going home empty handed, not to mention slowly.

Escape

In 2012 Ford released the new Ford Escape with a new design and features that upgraded its standard equipment. However, ever since that release it has been through multiple recalls, and recently it has been announced for another. The Ford Escape and C-Max recall has to do with an airbag problem as well as a problem related to the door handles.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Escape vehicles manufactured October 5, 2011, through April 10, 2014. Due to an assembly misalignment between the exterior door handle and the door outer panel, the affected vehicles have doors that may be difficult to close or may possibly open while driving.” The Ford C-Max hybrid is included in this recall as well.

With the door handle problem, that is the main part of the Ford Escape and C-max recall, it can cause for the door to fly open and therefore leaving occupants exposed.

If you are notified that your vehicle is one of the ones affected by the Ford Escape and C-Max recall, then you will be instructed to take your vehicle into your local Ford dealer where they will inspect it and replace the necessary parts.

For more information regarding the recall, you can contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673, with the Ford recall number for this being 14S03.

Ford Taurus

Forbes recently released a list comprised of the 12 Best Used Cars for New Graduates, and getting a used Ford Taurus came in at number three.

Its graduation season and that means that your graduate is going off into the real world. Don’t you want to send them off in something that is safe and reliable? Sure you could always give them the classic congrats card with a little bit of money in it, a hug and a, “I’m so proud of you,” or any other grad gift you can think of. Those are great gifts for a new graduate.

However, getting them something they could use for years to come may be even better, and a used car is nothing to look down on. In fact, new graduates don’t need brand new cars, but they also don’t need the typical “beater” car. Used, now that sounds like the perfect middle ground.

So why choose a used Ford Taurus over other vehicles? We will tell you. There is a lot packed into each and every Taurus, like its quality performance engine and handling, all for an affordable price. Also, it is a bigger sized sedan that carries with it great safety.

Currently at Morristown Ford we have two used Ford Taurus models on our lot, a 2000 model and a 2003 model. So check out one of the 12 Best Used Cars for New Graduates and get your graduate what they really need!

Mustang

A classic Ford Mustang has just gotten even better looking, though not quite as drivable. As part of the celebration of 50 years of Mustang, the Ford Motor Company has licensed U.K.-based artist Robin Bark to turn the iconic pony car into a limited-edition collectible sculpture.

Fans of the iconic pony car could argue that the only thing the Mustang has gained as a sculpture is the ability to be held in one’s hand—after all, it never needed to be painted, crafted, or sculpted to be considered a work of art.

Bark’s design begins with clay, which he uses to build the initial, fundamental shape of the model. That shape is then transferred into a resin version to help determine how the light will reflect off the contours. Finally, the resin is used as a pattern to cast an aluminum prototype. Throughout the process, Bark attempts to use as little detail as possible while remaining as true to the Mustang’s iconic design.

“Mustang is a very different shape from the earlier cars I had done, which were more classically streamlined,” he said. “I look for what the designers were trying to achieve with shapes, and try to capture the essence of the car while also imparting a sense of motion to a static object.”

Get your hands on the limited-edition sculpture on Robin Bark’s official website! But if you’re in the mood for something a little more… drivable, visit us at Morristown Ford!

May marks the date for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and it is important to remember that cars aren’t the only vehicles on the road.

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month began in May 1983 when the Governor of Illinois wanted to bring attention to the increased number of motorcyclists during this month that marks the beginning of warm weather,” says MSS (Motorcycle Safety School). “Every year since then, state law enforcers and driving facilities across the nation partner up to help promote safe riding and safe driving practices.”

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month Important Points (make header)

  • Even though they are smaller, motorcycles still need the full width of a lane. Because of their design and nature, motorcycles need to be able to avoid obstacles that may pop up in the road. With a smaller area, they may not be able to avoid them, and that could lead to an accident.
  • Don’t be fooled by a turn signal. Motorcyclists do not have a system that warns them if their blinker is still on, or an automatic shut off. So, be sure not to assume what they are going to do just by turn signals.
  • Motorcyclists have all the same rights and privileges as a car, truck, or SUV on the road. Do not think that in some way you have the right of way over a motorcyclist.
  • To go along with their size, motorcycles can get lost in blind spots and can be difficult to see. Make sure you are paying full attention to avoid an accident.
  • For motorcyclists, make sure to always wear a helmet that is DOT approved, never drink and drive, and follow all traffic laws and rules.

Morristown Ford wants to remind you that practicing safe driving habits whether it is around motorcyclists or not can help to make the road a safer place.

2015 Ford Mustang

One thing is for sure: We can always count on Ford to give us what we want with its featured pony car. Yet again, they have not let us down. The 2015 Ford Mustang is going to come loaded with features, some necessary, some just for fun, and you aren’t going to want to pass up on it with the great price tag it promotes.

With a slightly smaller body in both height and width, a comfortable and luxurious interior, and the power of truck, it is going to be hard to beat the 2015 Ford Mustang, whether that’s in a race, or just normal everyday driving.

Mainly fit for just a driver and front passenger, the backseat is a little cramped and has a small overhead, but it makes up for that in comfort. Ford upgraded the pony’s interior with new leather, highlighted accents, and better material to make it the best it has been.

On the outside you will see a sleek, stylish look with its long hood and sporty design. According to Car and Driver, “The A-pillar moves back by more than an inch and the hood and rear deck are lower,” giving it that fierce look we all desire.

Under the hood you will find a roaring engine that, as a base model, produces 305 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque as a 2.3-liter four-cylinder. Available engines, and these are just speculation, could be a 3.7-liter V-6 and a 5.0-liter V-8, both with high horsepower and torque.

Once Ford releases definite numbers for the 2015 Ford Mustang and its new price, you will definitely want to come check it out at Morristown Ford. After taking one of these machines for a spin, there won’t be anything you will want to go back to.

Just for your pleasure we have provided a video featuring the 2015 Ford Mustang GT in a burnout. Enjoy!

Equally radical is what’s under the hood, as the carryover 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 is joined by a smaller EcoBoost sibling, a 2.7-liter V6 that promises significant fuel savings along with a healthy 8,000-lb towing capacity.” – AutoTrader.com
