2015 Ford Expedition Spy Shots

FLUSHING, Mich. - 2015 Ford Expedition spy shots have surfaced on the internet, as the camouflaged vehicle was seen driving around Michigan. Although the SUV's covering kept fine details under wraps, it was easy to see that the vehicle has undergone some changes.

Starting with the full-size SUV's exterior, it appears to have received a bigger chrome grille and a raised front fascia. The straight exhaust pipe on the rear end of the vehicle is new, as the current vehicle has a 90 degree angled pipe that releases on the passenger side.

The interior of the vehicle isn't expected to undergo a complete overhaul, however, there will be a few tweaks here and there. The center stack has been modernized, but with buttons and knobs instead of the touch-sensitive controls. Numerous Ford drivers expressed their preference for the buttons and knobs, so Ford took their opinions into account and reinstated them in the 2015 SUV. The steering wheel also looks to have received an update to accommodate the new interior design. We also spotted an engine stop-start system in this 2015 Ford Expedition prototype, so expect to see a hands-free keyless entry on the new model.

2015 Ford Expedition Spy Shots

As for what's going on under the hood, the 2015 Ford Expedition is expected to receive a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine. This updated engine would increase the current 310HP to 365, as well as improve the current EPA ratings significantly.

These 2015 Ford Expedition spy shots have us excited for the SUV's debut! Until then, stop by and check out the current model on our lot. With the holiday season rapidly approaching, the space that the Expedition offers would be perfect for hauling gifts or riding with family. So come on by and we'll set you up with a test drive!

2014 Ford Fiesta Is Most Fuel Efficient Non-Hybrid in the U.S.

2014 Ford Fiesta Is Most Fuel Efficient Non-Hybrid in the U.S.
FLUSHING, Mich. - Having recently won Women's World Car of the Year, the new Ford Fiesta is being celebrated once again - for its fuel efficiency! Ford has announced that the 2014 Ford Fiesta is the most fuel efficient non-hybrid in the U.S., with an outstanding EPA rating of 45 mpg on the highway.

2014 Ford Fiesta Is Most Fuel Efficient Non-Hybrid in the U.S.The reason behind this impressive rating is the subcompact car's 1-liter, three-cylinder EcoBoost engine that gets the Fiesta a combined 37 miles per gallon - 32 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway. This makes the 2014 Ford Fiesta the most fuel efficient non-hybrid, gasoline-fueled car in the U.S.

Along with being fuel efficient, the tiny vehicle also packs a punch! The new 1-liter EcoBoost engine produces more 123 hp and 123 lb.-ft. of torque - pretty impressive for a small car!

If you're interested in this small but powerful sedan, it will be made available on our lot in December and is set to cost about $16,740. For more information, stop by our dealership today! We'd be more than happy to discuss your options, and see what kind of rebates we can find for you.

Leaked 2015 Ford Mustang Specs

Leaked 2015 Ford Mustang Specs
FLUSHING, Mich. - While Ford recently announced that they will debuting the 2015 Ford Mustang in December, pony car fans everywhere will rejoice because someone from Ford Motor Company has leaked the 2015 Ford Mustang specs.

Previously we mentioned that the 2015 Ford Mustang, although heavily camouflaged, seemed to have a front that was heavily influenced by the Evos concept and the 2014 Ford Mustang. Now however, the specs have confirmed that it is indeed smaller and a little sleeker than the previous model, but the shape comes from classic retro Mustang shapes and the recent Ford Fusion.

As for the powertrain - the part you've been waiting for - it has been confirmed that a four-cylinder model will return to the Mustang range, as a 310HP, direct-injection 2.3-liter unit. It'll be above the base six-cylinder unit but below the V8 engine. The V8 engine will produce 420HP and the V6 will put out 305HP.

Other changes to the pony car are expected, such as a weight loss of about 200 pounds; rear suspension is independent across the range; and a retro-styled interior.

While the leaked 2015 Ford Mustang specs give us a better idea of what to expect, the vehicle will still debut in December - four months before the 50th anniversary in April, as well as a couple weeks before the Detroit Auto Show in January 2014. To tie you over until then, stop by our dealership today and take a look at the 2014 Mustang. We also have an online 2014 Ford Mustang Brochure if you'd prefer to take a look at the pony car from the comfort of your own home. If you have any questions or comments about the Ford Mustang, don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!

50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites


50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites
FLUSHING, Mich. - Over the course of 50 years, a lot can change - new technology surfaces, fashion goes out of style, and people's tastes change. All of this is relevant for the Ford Mustang as it is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary. That is 5 decades of new technology, Mustang bodies, and colors. To celebrate five decades, here's a look at 50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites.

50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites

Starting in the 1960's, blue reigned supreme with nearly 30 percent of all Ford Mustangs in 1968 being produced with the understated color. This is especially impressive considering Ford offered six different shades at the time, blue being one of them.

As time progressed, Ford tried out unique hues such as green, yellow, and brown - all of which phased out pretty quickly due to unpopularity. In fact, brown was so unpopular that a Mustang has not been produced in the shade since 1989. However, Ford will occasionally bring back green and yellow as limited edition Mustangs such as the Bullitt and Boss 302.

50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites

On the subject of vibrant hues, Ford has also been known to introduce unexpected color options from time to time. This includes the hot playboy pink Mustang in 1967 and a color-shifting Mystichrome SVT Cobra in 2004. Today the Mustang has a 'Gotta Have It Green' option - an eclectic color that is sure to leave its mark on Ford Mustang color history.

50 years of Ford Mustang Color Favorites

50 years of Ford Mustang color favorites and red has revealed itself to be the all-time favorite of Mustang colors. In fact, 21 percent of all Mustangs ever sold have come in a red shade. However, black is the current best-selling Mustang exterior paint color, claiming 28 percent of all 2013 Mustangs sold.

If you'd like to see the color options for the current Ford Mustang, check out our 2014 Ford Mustang Brochure! After you find a color you like, stop by our dealership and we'll set you up with a test drive! We're located at 1510 E.

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

FLUSHING, Mich. - With Halloween right around the corner, pumpkins are taking center stage as millions across the country visit their local pumpkin patch and prepare to carve what they buy. Since we know you'll be getting into the spooky spirit by carving pumpkins, we've come up with 5 pumpkin carving ideas to help get you inspired!

1. Starting off easy, this is a great idea for those that would like to skip the carving altogether, but still have a cute pumpkin for decorating. Using paint, you can create a design that will be the envy of all trick-or-treaters! We love this black pumpkin with white lettering, but why not get creative and really let the paint fly? Not to mention, your pumpkin will last twice as long since you won't be hollowing out the inside.

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

2. Another 'cute' pumpkin idea is using a drill to create holes in whatever design you choose!

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

3. A pumpkin carving idea that is a little more advanced is the mummy! Cutting your pumpkin into slices, you'll need to stack them back together haphazardly to give the 'mummy' illusion. With this idea, you'll probably need a little bit of glue to hold your pieces together.

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

4. For a pumpkin carving idea that is a little more 'gross' than 'cute', this puking pumpkin is perfect! After carving the face, you'll need to pull some of the pumpkin's innards out through the 'mouth'. It's that easy!

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

5. For the pumpkin carvers looking for a challenge, try this pumpkin within a pumpkin! While the trickiest part of this will be getting the perfect size pumpkins, the rest is pretty simple. After it's all done, you'll have a creative pumpkin that neighbors, friends, and family will want to copy for next year!

5 Pumpkin Carving Ideas

These 5 pumpkin carving ideas should get you inspired to carve this Halloween. We recommend dipping your finished pumpkin in a bleach/water mixture to keep your creation fresh for as long as possible.

If you need a new ride to the pumpkin path, we're here to help! We've got a great selection of new, used, and certified pre-owned cars - so stop by and see us! We're located at 1510 E.

2015 Ford Mustang to Debut in December

2015 Ford Mustang to Debut in December
FLUSHING, Mich. - We recently reported that the 2015 Ford Mustang would be revealed at the 2014 New York Auto Show in April, as Ford would be celebrating the Mustang's 50th anniversary. Now however, Ford has announced that the 2015 Ford Mustang will debut in December - four months earlier than previously thought!

Whether or not this debut has anything to do with the fact that computer generated images (like the one above) of the 2015 pony car have surfaced, Ford has revealed that they will debut the Mustang to the public at the end of this year. A select group of journalists have already been chosen to view the new vehicle, however, all were asked to keep details of the Mustang quiet until the big reveal.

Few details have been released about the sixth-generation Mustang, so not much can be said about what to expect with updated car. However, we do know that the new Mustang will be smaller, lighter, and will get a brand new grill and headlights.  As for under the hood, the Mustang is believed to be getting a 3.0-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8. A 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 will most likely be made available as well. Unfortunately, these are all guesses, as nothing has been confirmed by Ford.

Since the 2015 Ford Mustang will debut in December, we won't have to wait much longer for the actual specifics of the new pony car! Although the 2015 model won't be on dealer's lots until sometime next year, we do have a great selection of 2014 Ford Mustangs currently available for you to take for a spin! If you'd like to get behind the wheel of one of these great pony cars, stop by our dealership today. We'll gladly go over all the vehicle specifics with you, or set you up with a test drive.

Ford Bringing 57 Vehicles to SEMA 2013

Ford Bringing 57 Vehicles to SEMA 2013
FLUSHING, Mich. - This year's SEMA show is going to be entertaining for all types of vehicle enthusiasts, as Ford has just announced that they will be bringing 57 vehicles to SEMA 2013! While we've already gotten a sneak peek at the 605HP Vortech-Supercharged Mustang (also known as the Project Yellow Jacket), Ford is revealing a few more of the beauties that will be featured at the Las Vegas show.

Ford is keeping a few of the vehicle's secret until SEMA, however, several takes on the Fiesta ST have been released - everything from rally cars to street racers. The motivation behind this is that Ford wants consumers to realize the full potential of the Fiesta ST by showing how it can be dressed up.

Ford Bringing 57 Vehicles to SEMA 2013
Ford Bringing 57 Vehicles to SEMA 2013

Along with the various Fiesta ST's, Ford has been proud to tease Mustang lovers with the Project Yellow Jacket Ford Mustang, that is powered by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that produces 605HP and 474 lb-ft of torque. However, this is a kitten compared to the tiger that Ford is now giving us a sneak peek of.

At SEMA 2013, Ford has revealed that they will be bringing along a Hollywood Hot Rods Mustang GT Convertible that has had the suspension lowered and stiffened, and everything under the hood tweaked to the extreme. If you thought the 605HP Project Yellow Jacket was quick, the Hollywood Hot Rods have managed - through a combination of methanol injection and supercharging - to produce 750HP out of the 5.0 V8 engine beneath the Mustang's hood.

Ford Bringing 57 Vehicles to SEMA 2013

This powerful Mustang has us excited for the show, however, Ford is bringing 57 other vehicles to SEMA 2013 as well! So check back with us over the course of the next few weeks and we'll keep you updated with everything Ford as the SEMA show approaches.

If you'd like to discuss how you can increase the power on your Ford vehicle, or even take one of our 2014 Ford Mustangs out for a spin, stop by our dealership! We would be more than happy to set you up with a test drive, or go over your vehicle options. We're located at 1510 E.

2015 Ford Edge Spy Shots

2015 Ford Edge Spy Shots
FLUSHING, Mich. - A heavily camouflaged 2015 Ford Edge has been seen making its way around Detroit this week, along with three other identical 2015 Edge prototypes. Although all were wearing the thick coating, the size and revealing lines of the vehicle's mark it as the Ford Edge.

The 2015 Ford Edge spy shots don't reveal much about the new model except that it will be keeping its three-bar grill and wide stance. Unfortunately, since its release in 2007 the Ford Edge hasn't undergone any massive exterior updates. While it did receive a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine option and a minor facelift in recent years, not much has changed on the vehicle - but then again, why mess with perfection?

2015 Ford Edge Spy Shots

As for performance, the 2015 Ford Edge is expected to come with a standard V-6 that produces 285 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 240 hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost and turbo-four option.  Fans of the edge are hoping that Ford will bring back the Ford Edge Sport, a crossover that came with a 305 hp, 3.7-liter V-6 engine. However, Ford has not confirmed any of the Edge specifics just yet.

2015 Ford Edge Spy Shots

The 2015 Ford Edge spy shots reveal that the vehicle is far along in the development process, which confirms the rumor that Ford will reveal the redesigned Edge at the L.A. auto show next month. Pricing is expected to remain the same at $28,995.

While this vehicle won't be on our lots until next year, the current 2014 Ford Edge is available for you to admire and take for a spin. We also have a variety of 2014 Ford Fiesta's if you're looking for a smaller car, as well as a 2014 Ford Flex if you like the crossover feel.

2015 Ford Mustang Computer-Generated Image

2015 Ford Mustang Computer-Generated Image
FLUSHING, Mich. - A 2015 Ford Mustang computer-generated image has been released, stirring up pony car fans across the internet. This image is believed to be representative of the final design for the 2015 Ford Mustang, as the creator took styling cues from the previously taken spy shot, ensuring that the picture looked as similar as possible to the prototype.

Although the spy shots are clearly those of the 2015 Ford Mustang, not much could be seen since the pony car was heavily camouflaged. However, the shape for the headlights and grille were visible, giving fans a clear view of the Mustang's front that appears to be influenced by the Evos concept and the 2014 Ford Mustang. Looking at the front-end spy shots, you can see that the computer-generated image made an exact replica of what is on the Ford prototype.

2015 Ford Mustang Computer-Generated Image

Other than the 2015 Ford Mustang computer-generated image, not much else is known about the latest Mustang model. However, rumors suggest that a brand new platform complete with an independent suspension will be setup in the rear; the vehicle will weight about 400 pounds less; and fuel consumption will be cut by the introduction of a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. However, the exact specifics won't be released until the vehicle makes its debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Ford and the University of Michigan Open New Battery Lab

Ford and the University of Michigan Open New Battery Lab
FLUSHING, Mich. - Plans have recently been revealed that Ford and the University of Michigan will be opening a new battery lab in Ann Arbor. This new battery research and manufacturing lab is being created with the hopes that it will speed up the development of batteries for electric and hybrid cars.

This lab will be unique in the United States since the labs currently testing new batteries can't produce them in the amounts needed by Ford Motor Company for automotive research. The new battery lab will essentially allow battery markers, car companies and researchers to come together and test new batteries for prototype vehicles. This is a great move for advancing the automotive industry since battery companies won't be developing, and potentially wasting, batteries that have the potential to not even be used by the industry. Instead, everyone will be able to come together to work on and improve batteries that are already in demand.

Currently, electric and hybrid car sales make up a small percentage of yearly U.S. auto sales - this is believed to be because of the high price tag that comes with the fuel efficient/environmentally friendly vehicles.  Because the batteries in these vehicles are made of costly materials, thousands of dollars get tacked onto the price tag to make up for the production costs. As Ford and the University of Michigan open a new battery lab, the cost to make these batteries will hopefully go down as they discover new and more efficient ways to produce the electric and hybrid car batteries.

The lab, which won't start producing batteries until next year, will cost $8 million - $5 million from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, $900,000 from the University of Michigan, and $2.1 million from Ford.

If you'd like to take a look at one of our electric or hybrid vehicles on our lot, stop by today! We have a great selection of fuel efficient cars that you'll love for their gas mileage, good looks, and smooth drive. 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.

Ford to Debut 605HP Vortech-Supercharged Mustang at SEMA Show

FLUSHING, Mich. - As the world counts down until the release of the 2015 Ford Mustang, Ford keeps the excitement overflowing by announcing that it will debut a 605HP Vortech-Supercharged Mustang at the SEMA Show this November.

This Mustang, also known as the Project Yellow Jacket Ford Mustang, has a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that produces 605HP and 474 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the Coyote, the Mustang also comes with a V-3 Si supercharging system with 7.5 psi of boost. While acceleration times haven't been disclosed, that information will almost certainly be made available at the SEMA Show.

Ford to Debut 605HP Vortech-Supercharged Mustang at SEMA Show

The Project Yellow Jack Ford Mustang has a Boy Racer body kit from 3D carbon, a carbon-fiber cowl induction hood and more - all covered with a custom yellow paint.

Ford Unveils Technology That Parks Cars and Avoids Obstacles

Ford Unveils Technology That Parks Cars and Avoids Obstacles

FLUSHING, Mich. - While the world has been talking about self-driving cars, Ford has unveiled a technology that parks cars and avoids obstacles - by itself. These driving technologies are the Fully Assisted Parking Aid and Obstacle Avoidance.

The Fully Assisted Parking Aid is just the obvious next step up from the Active Park Assist, which controls the steering wheel of a parking vehicle while the driver controls the gas and brakes.  The Fully Assisted Parking Aid takes it a step further by taking full control of your vehicle. First, your vehicle uses ultrasonic sensors to scan for an open parking space at speeds as high as 18 mph. When it finds a spot, it alerts the driver early enough for them to come to a safe and complete stop. The driver then puts the vehicle in neutral and presses a parking button. After the button is pushed, the car will automatically switch gears, accelerate, steer, and brake.

The best part about this Fully Assisted Parking Aid is that you don't even have to be in the vehicle to park it! While you're more than welcome to sit in the driver's seat while your vehicle navigates itself into a spot, you can also step outside the vehicle and press the parking button on a keyfob or remote. This technology works for both perpendicular and angled parking.


As for Obstacle Avoidance, sensors on the vehicle will direct the steering and brakes to avoid hitting cars and/or people that are stopped or slowing ahead of you. First, your vehicle will warn you with a chime. If you don't slow down or come to a stop, your vehicle will assume control of itself, scan the roadway for clearance on the left and right side of your vehicle, and either brake or move the car to the side. The sensors that are used to control your vehicle when an obstacle presents itself are the three radar unit sensors, ultrasonic sensors, and a camera that can scan as far as 600 feet - that's about 3 football fields!

Ford has unveiled technology that parks cars and avoids obstacles, but these great features aren't available on Ford vehicles just yet. To see what features are on current Ford models, or to take your favorite Ford out for a test drive, stop by our dealership! We would be more than happy to take care of any of your vehicle needs. 

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. Family-owned and operated, Delehanty Ford has been serving the Greater Genesee County area for over 65 years with customer satisfaction as our top priority.

Ford Auctions Off 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Prototype for 200k
FLUSHING, Mich. - With all proceeds going to aid the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Ford has auctioned off a 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Prototype for 200k! This prototype is one-of-a-kind and was sold at the recent Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas, NV.

While this vehicle is the only one of its kind and therefore was never expected to sell cheap, the $200k that it sold for was $100k more than the asking price. No one is complaining about the extra cash, as all the proceeds went directly to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Even the winning bidder is more than satisfied, as he not only won the one-of-a-kind Mustang Cobra Jet prototype, he was also made an honorary member of Team Mustang and will receive exclusive access to the Ford Product Development Center, Ford Design Studios and Ford Racing Department. In addition, he will be given the opportunity to take driver training at Roy Hill's Drag Racing School in NC, and be featured in a future Mustang documentary.

Ford Auctions Off 2014 Ford Mustang Cobra Prototype for 200k

As for the car itself, it is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine and is the prototype for one of the most successful drag racing packages from an OEM. Not to mention, this prototype has a serial number that is completely unique to this vehicle: #2014 BJMS CJXX1.

Ford Warriors in Pink are 19 Years Strong

Ford Warriors in Pink are 19 Years Strong
FLUSHING, Mich. - October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Ford Warriors in Pink are 19 years strong. This program, created by Ford Motor Company, works to raise awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer - so far they've raised $120 million!

The Ford Warriors in Pink is a clothing and gear collection created by Ford - all bearing the Warrior in Pink logo. Although the Ford Warriors in Pink is a stylish collection, it is also a great way to raise funds for the organizations fighting breast cancer, since 100 percent of the net proceeds from sales go straight to those organizations.

This year, Warriors in Pink is teaming up with actor Gilles Marini to promote a limited-edition T-shirt that Marini designed himself. This limited-edition t-shirt, titled "United with Love" will be sold for a limited time and all the money made will go to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. This t-shirt retails for $20 and can be purchased from www.fordcars.com.

In addition to promoting the limited-edition T-shirt, Ford Warriors in Pink are celebrating their 19 years strong with a series of inspirational videos. These video series - one titled "In Her World", the other, "Courage Talks"- are intended to give viewers an intimate look at prominent women and their stories of inspiration. It is also intended to cover the difficult conversations breast cancer patients will inevitably face.

If you'd like to find out more information about the Ford Warriors in Pink, or if you would like to discuss what you can do on a local level, stop by our dealership! We'd be happy to discuss the Ford Warriors in Pink program, or assist you with any of your vehicle needs. We're located at 1510 E.
