Winning Hackmobile of Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge to be Built by Ford

Winning Hackmobile of Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge to be Built by Ford
FLUSHING, Mich - The Hackmobile Transit Connect Wagon was named the winner of the Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge presented by Ford Motor Company and MAKE magazine. As a surprise to the builders, Jon Atkinson, Becca Steffen, Riley Harrison and Michael Freiert, Ford will build the winning Hackmobile of the Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge. 

The contest featured 10 teams, all competing to create the ultimate Ford Transit Connect Wagon for the do-it-yourself enthusiast. The winning builders, members of Twin Cities Maker, created the Hackmobile. Twin Cities Maker is a nonprofit community organization that operates a shop by the name of Hack Factory. At this shop, members build projects out of different materials and hold classes for the community. Their main idea was to design a Ford Transit Connect Wagon that would transport a three-axis CNC machine, known as The Fabber, that serves as a multipurpose tool in fabricating. The Hackmobile would also have shelving and storage for tools, making it a mobile workshop for woodworking, metalworking and 3D fabrication.

The 10 competitors in the Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge were given a specific design and build criteria and a budget to work with before submitting their proposal. The public was allowed to vote once a day for as many entires as they liked. Votes were based on concepts of overall design and customization, as well as enthusiasm by the builders.

This challenge is part of Ford's Markers and Movers campaign with MAKE magazine. It highlights the Transit Connect Wagon, recognizing and showcasing the owners who have used their talents to customize the vehicle. Stories and videos are shared on Makezine.com and demonstrate how Ford has created a vehicle that can be modified for any individual's personal preference.

Delehanty Ford would like to congratulate Twin Cities Maker again, whom will have their winning Hackmobile built by Ford!

Ford Motor Company Joins Emerging Autonomous Technology Race

Ford Motor Company Joins Emerging Autonomous Technology Race
FLUSHING, Mich - Gentlemen, start your engines. Ford Motor Company has officially joined the emerging autonomous technology race! The company has unveiled a prototype of an autonomous Ford Fusion Hybrid, publicly putting them in a race with big tech companies such as Google Inc and Tesla Motors Inc to build the world's first mass-market driverless car.

Everyone is looking to develop a autonomous car technology today and Ford Motor Company is the latest company to announce their plans about producing self-driving vehicles. Teaming with the University of Michigan and State Farm, Ford launched an automated research vehicle that will help Ford deliver fully autonomous cars by year 2025. Ford has been heading down this road for some time with their "fully assisted parking aid" technology. This is featured in some Ford vehicles today and the same technology will also be featured in the autonomous cars. Ford also recently debuted a technology allowing drivers to park their cars with a touch of a button inside the car or by using a remote outside of the vehicle.

As Ford hopes to deliver the self-driving cars by 2025 using mixes of old and new technology, competitors may beat Ford to the finish line. Tesla Motors Inc is investing in autonomous technology and the company's CEO believes they can provide the driverless experience for its Model S cars in as few as three years. Tesla is also heading towards an "autopilot" approach, which is similar to what an airplane would have, which will take less time to develop.

Ford does happen to have a very good competitive edge. Partnering with State Farm auto insurance allows Ford to have immediate support in regards to regulations that will be put into place to govern how autonomous vehicles should be legislated. Although they may be at a slower start, Ford still plans to be apart of the emerging autonomous technology race. 

We can't wait to see what technology will develop from the Ford Motor Company and what we will be able to offer our customers at Delehanty Ford! Right now we are offering an unbelievable Early Bird Lease Offer! Get out of your old lease and behind the wheel of a 2013/2014 Ford vehicle! We will waive the remaining payments so you can actually love the car you are driving! Visit us at Delehanty Ford today to see what Fords we have waiting for you!

We're located at 1510 E. Pierson Road, Flushing, MI 48433. Feel free to give us a call at (810) 659-5688 with any questions you may have.

Winter Car Maintenance Tips

Winter Car Maintenance Tips
FLUSHING, Mich - The first of many frosts, snows, and freezing rain has begun in Michigan. Although many try to avoid going outside all together, we still have to remember the importance of proper maintenance on your vehicles (aside from scraping of the windshield). The winter weather is rough on our cars and many forget to have certain services done. Here is a list of winter car maintenance tips to keep your vehicle running its very best this season:

1. Keep the appropriate air pressure in your tires.
Be cautious of your tire pressure during the winter months. When temperatures are especially cold, tires lose a pound of pressure with every drop of 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Under-inflated tires won't grip down to the pavement as well as tires with proper pressure levels. A similar effect would be if you were to hydroplane in water.

2. Antifreeze
If you follow you vehicle's regular maintenance schedule, you should be just fine with engine coolant for the winter months. Most new cars have been fitted with coolants that can last as long as five years or 150,000 miles. If you are unsure about the coolant in your vehicle, one of our service technicians can easily assist you.

3. Keep your battery juiced.
Winter puts more stress on the battery, even more so if you park outdoors. If you find that your battery seems to be acting funny, come and see us right away at Delehanty Ford. Don't take the chance of being stranded in the cold!

4. Check your wiper blades.
Be sure that your wiper blades are in good condition. Most wiper blades only have the lifespan of about a year or so. When snow or any other freezing precipitation occur, be sure to turn off your wipers when you park. If wipers are frozen while in motion it can burn out the wiper blade motor.

5. Wax your lights.
A minor detail, but an important one at that. Utilizing the most light out of your head and taillights during these winter months is extremely important for the safety of you and your vehicle.

Delehanty Ford is happy to help you with any winter car maintenance tips or service. We can also provide you with a great selection of Ford vehicles! Whether you live in Grand Blanc or a surrounding area, we are glad to help you with all of your vehicle needs, including Auto Loans. Stop by Delehanty Ford today where our customers are our number one priority!

We're located at 1510 E. Pierson Road, Flushing, MI 48433. Feel free to give us a call at (810) 659-5688 with any questions you may have.

Prevent Auto Theft Crimes This Holiday Season

Prevent Auto Theft Crimes This Holiday Season
FLUSHING, Mich - It is that time of the season. The time when parking lots are jammed with vehicles of hectic holiday shoppers. A Michigan auto theft prevention program wants to remind all of you shoppers that this time of the year attracts auto criminals. These criminals are looking for easy targets for carjackings, break-ins, and other auto-theft crimes. Reports have shown that the number of auto-theft crimes increase during the holiday shopping season. For your safety, we encourage you to consider a few tips to prevent auto theft crimes this holiday season:

1. Stay alert.
Become aware of your surroundings as you are walking to your vehicle. Avoid talking or texting on your cell phone, or attempting to do other mindless tasks while walking. Remember where you park and walk directly to your vehicle.

2. Park in high-traffic, well-lit areas.
Park in an area with high pedestrian traffic or in an area with an attendant. Avoid parking by objects that block your view such as dumpsters, bushes, and large vans or trucks.

3. Place valuables and purchases out of sight.
Whether it be in the trunk or on the floor, place valuable items in places that are not tempting to passing thieves.

4. If you are threatened by a carjacker, GIVE THEM THE CAR.
Give up your vehicle to the carjacker and get out of harms way. Many thieves could have a weapon in their possession, so it is best to give up your vehicle and whatever is inside for your personal safety!

5. Use your best judgement.
Ultimately, using common sense and proper judgment is the best tool. Do not leave your car unlocked, running while unattended, or leave valuable objects in plain site. If you feel uncomfortable walking to your car alone, ask retail security to escort you to your vehicle.

Of course, we still want you to enjoy the holiday season and your time shopping for others. All we ask is that you stay aware of your surroundings and use your best judgement to prevent auto theft crimes this holiday season. If you are searching for a bigger gift this year, visit Delehanty Ford for a variety of new and used Ford vehicles. At Delehanty Ford, we are happy to assist customers in Grand Blanc and surrounding areas with any of their vehicle needs, including Auto Loans.

2015 Ford Mustang Goes Topless

2015 Ford Mustang Goes Topless
FLUSHING, Mich. - The 2015 Ford Mustang was revealed last week and muscle car fans across the world were in awe of the regular fastback coupe. Alongside this grand reveal, the 2015 Ford Mustang went topless!

The 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible has also undergone some serious updates, right along with the fastback. Featuring a wider and lower stance, the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible has been modernized with smoother lines and a longer nose. Despite receiving an update to become more modern, the pony car still hints at its 50 years of history with a 60's Mustang inspired rear.

A few other updates to the vehicle include a new suspension and more engine options. One engine option that has pony car lovers particularly excited is the all new 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can produce 305 HP - all while delivering excellent fuel economy. For those not interested in the EcoBoost option, the convertible will also offer a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 420 HP and a base V6 option.

As for any changes to the actual top on the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible, Ford has promised that the power-operated cloth top will lower twice as fast on the new model - something many convertible Mustang drivers are sure to love!

The 2015 Ford Mustang has gone topless and we can't wait for a chance to get behind the wheel! While the vehicle won't be made available until after the coupe hits dealers in the fall of 2014, there are still a variety of 2014 Ford Mustangs on our lot that we're positive you're going to love.

2015 Ford Mustang


2015 Ford Mustang
FLUSHING, Mich. - The moment you all have been waiting for.. Ladies and gentleman, the 2015 Ford Mustang has been revealed!

Every aspect of the iconic car’s exterior has been taken and reinvented, resulting in a modern pony car that sits lower and wider than in past years. With smooth lines, a fierce face, and a variety of little details to love, the 2015 Ford Mustang has been reinvented into a modern day stallion. However, despite the complete overhaul, Ford designers have not forgotten the vehicle’s roots. The fastback look in the rear is reminiscent of the 1960’s Mustang, while the admiring and envious looks are the same as they have been for the past 50 years.

2015 Ford Mustang

 A few quick exterior facts:
  • Wheels are out 20mm on each side
  • Vehicle is the lightest it's ever been, having just shed 200 lbs.
  • Taillights are narrowed
  • Headlights are more forward than they've been in recent years
  • Vehicle will come in standard colors such as black, white, silver, etc.
  • Also come in red, orange, blue, a dark green and a brand new bright yellow

  • Hood is longer
  • Rear end features three-dimensional characteristics
2015 Ford Mustang


The pony car has also received an update to its engine options, as it will now offer the current 3.7-liter V6, a 5.0-liter V8 and a brand new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. The EcoBoost is a great addition to the pony car because it now gives drivers the comfort of knowing they are getting great gas mileage without sacrificing the power. While we aren't exactly sure of how many MPG the new Mustang will get, Ford has promised that it will get a project class-leading fuel efficiency.

We are still waiting on a few details about the 2015 Ford Mustang, but we assure you we will keep you posted as information becomes available.

Ford Motor Company and the State of Michigan Join Forces to Cut Down on Teen Crashes

Ford Motor Company and the State of Michigan Join Forces to Cut Down on Teen Crashes
FLUSHING, Mich. - Accidents happen and in the event of a crash, Ford vehicles come with a variety of standard safety features to protect its occupants. While Ford can go the extra mile to keep you safe during an accident, there is only so much that can be done to prevent an accident from happening in the first place - especially if the driver is young, reckless, or both. That's why Ford Motor Company and the State of Michigan are joining forces to cut down on teen crashes.

How they will do this is through the Parents Supervised Driving program. Under this program, Ford will pay for teen driving guides to be handed out to parents across the state of Michigan. These guides will provide parents with material to help give their teen driver clear, concise and easily actionable instructions to improve their driving.

As part of our state laws, all teens are required to undergo a supervised driving component in their driver's training. This is the time when an adult (most likely a parent) will ride with the teen driver and make sure that they are driving correctly and obeying all traffic laws. These teen driving guides that Ford will pay for will help the adults during this component so that they can ensure that their teen driver will be informed and responsible when they are driving on their own.

This program is extremely important simply because of the fact that traffic accident rates for 16-19 year old drivers are higher than any other age group. Teenage drivers are known for being risky drivers because of their inexperience on the road. Hopefully with the help of these teen driving guides, young drivers will feel more experienced and not drive as recklessly.

Ford Motor Company and the State of Michigan are joining forces to cut down on teen crashes, but there is still a lot that you can do to protect your vehicle's occupants should an accident occur. Stop by our dealership today and we'll happily go over all the safety features available to you in our Ford vehicles. We have everything from New Ford Cars to New Ford Trucks to used vehicles such as the Ford Taurus! No matter what you're looking for, we'd be more than happy to help you find it.

Ford Rolls Out Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities

Ford Rolls Out Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities
FLUSHING, Mich. - While Ford is typically known for its advanced safety features available in a variety of vehicles in the lineup, Ford is now rolling out a Child Safety Program in Ford Plant Communities to protect children when they are not in the vehicle.

This Child Safety Program comes in the form of inkless fingerprint ID kits (this ID kit stays with the family) that help law enforcement quickly reference children's fingerprints and other identifying information, should they go missing. These kits will be distributed to all UAW-Ford employees which puts the estimated total distribution by Ford at 225,000 kits with 50,000 kits to be donated to Detroit Public Schools.

The best part about this large distribution is that the National Identification Program has promised to donate a kit for every kit purchased by Ford for plant employees. The matching kits will be distributed throughout the communities near Ford manufacturing plants by local schools, churches and law enforcement.

The National Identification Program was created by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) in 1997 with the goal that they would create a fingerprint record of 20 million children. Since 1997, they have blasted through this goal by collecting fingerprints of over 32 million children, both nationally and internationally. This impressive number has made the National Identification Program the largest child identification effort ever made.

Ford is rolling out a Child Safety Program in Ford plant communities across the country, simply because of the fact that safety is Ford's number one priority - in and out of the vehicle. If you'd like to see all that Ford does to ensure the safety of you and your family when you're driving, stop by our dealership! We would be more than happy to go over the various safety features available in our New Ford Cars, New Ford Trucks and used vehicles!

2014 Ford Fiesta ST Review

2014 Ford Fiesta ST Review
FLUSHING, Mich. - Now that the 2014 Ford Fiesta is ready and available to Ford customers, we've decided to break down all the pros and cons to this sporty little compact with a 2014 Ford Fiesta ST review.

If you want a quick, couple word review, we'd have to say that the Fiesta ST is an affordable compact that is fuel efficient yet powerful and agile. However, if you'd like to linger over the specifics of this fantastic little car, sit back and relax while we go over the details.

The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST goes for about $21,400, which gets you a EcoBoost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. This engine produces 197 HP and gets you from 0-60 mph in less than 6.9 seconds - pretty impressive for such a small car!

Speaking of size, the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is the smallest car Ford offers in the U.S., with a total weight of 2,742 lbs. However, this pint sized vehicle produces quite a punch (as described above) and also handles like a dream. Ford has designed the ST to have fantastic grip with the road so that you can manipulate the ST quickly around curves and up hills. Ford has also put a 13.6:1 steering rack between the front wheels, giving the vehicle a kind of ratio that is often found in a road racer.

The biggest pro to this vehicle is definitely the way it drives. Not many people expect the ST to handle like a more expensive sports car simply because it's not. However, Ford has designed the vehicle in such a way that when you're ripping around the corners in this little ST, you might feel like you are. One of the cons is the vehicle's size, however, it's only a con to drivers who are used to a lot of room. While the ST's interior is spacious for a compact car, it in no way compares to the cabin space of the Ford Edge. So if you're big on interior cabin space and storage, the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST might not be for you.

We hope this 2014 Ford Fiesta ST review has helped get you thinking about this fantastic little compact. We here at Delehanty Ford love this vehicle, along with the vibrant hues exclusively available to it. If you'd like to take a Ford Fiesta out for a test drive, stop by our dealership today! If you're out and about for the Thanksgiving holiday, take a second to check out our online 2014 Ford Fiesta Brochure and don't forget to ask about our Ford Fiesta A-Plan Pricing, Ford Fiesta X-Plan Pricing, and Ford Fiesta Rebates!

Ford Police Sedan Named Most Fuel-Efficient Police Vehicle in U.S.

Ford Police Sedan Named Most Fuel-Efficient Police Vehicle in U.S.
FLUSHING, Mich. - Ford is known for the work it does for America's police officers - everything from technology to protect our men and women in uniform to providing them with fuel saving vehicles. Continuing with this work, Ford's newest police sedan has been named the most fuel-efficient police vehicle in the U.S.!

This police sedan has an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg on the highway, 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg combined! With these EPA-estimated ratings, Ford has calculated that this vehicle, when driven 30,000 mile per year and with gas staying at around $3.21 a gallon, the Special Service Police package has the potential to save agencies approximately $1,720 over three years. When you take this savings and times it by 150 (for police agencies with fleets as large as 150 vehicles) you get a savings of $257,940 over the course of three years!

Ford's newest model is a special service police vehicle that combines the durability of Ford's Police Interceptor Sedan with the fuel efficiency of the EcoBoost engine. Designed to meet the needs of law enforcement with fuel-efficiency and lower operating costs in mind, this Special Service Police package comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

Ford's Police Sedan has been named the most fuel-efficient police vehicle in the U.S., meaning Ford's EcoBoost technology will finally be able to benefit the people who work hard to keep the peace in our country. If you'd like to see how the EcoBoost can save you money on gas, stop by our dealership! We would be more than happy to go over the various options available to you and find you a vehicle you'll love.

Tips for Smart Holiday Shopping

FLUSHING, Mich. - The holiday season has arrived which means holiday shopping is in full swing. With so many people out and about looking for a great deal, we've come up with a few tips for smart holiday shopping to help you save money.

1. Compare prices. Whether you use comparison shopping apps, websites, or good ol' fashion newspaper ads, there are numerous ways to ensure that you're getting the best deal possible. Make note of the lowest prices you find and bring proof along with you to the store when you go shopping. A lot of stores will match the lowest price that you find, just so they can keep your business within their store. So do a little research beforehand and you'll save big on products your family will love.

2. Pay no mind to "suggested retail" prices. Anything looks like a deal when they pick a random number and say that they are selling it for less than what it's supposed to be sold for. Just stick to your research and you'll do fine.

3. Keep your receipts! This goes hand in hand with the price matching in tip 1. Most stores will make a price adjustment if an item you already bought goes on sale within a certain period of time, or you find a coupon in a competing stores paper.

4. Set a limit and STICK TO IT. It can be so hard to stick to a budget when discounts and sale signs are everywhere you look. However, it's important to stick to your limit. You don't want to have to stretch your paycheck after the holiday season and cross your fingers that your bills will be paid. So calculate how much you can spend and still live comfortably after the holidays are over.

5. Make a list. By doing a little research beforehand and making a list of exactly what you want to buy and for who, you'll be able to quickly grab what you need and get out. This will also help you stay within your budget! Impulse gifts add up quickly, so make a list and enjoy the satisfaction you'll feel when you cross something off.

With these tips for smart holiday shopping in mind, you should be able to enjoy getting gifts for your loved ones and not stress about how much money you're spending.

While we love providing you with tips to shop smart this holiday season, our real expertise lies with cars. If you have any questions about auto loans, the Ford early bird lease offer, or anything else car related, don't hesitate to contact us! We would be more than happy to provide you with the information you need.
