Test Driving Tips for Your New Ford

Ford dealership Boston

You’ve looked through online reviews, browsed the online inventory at your local dealer, and narrowed down the new or used Ford vehicle you want to buy—the only thing left to do is visit the dealership and take it for a test drive. The test drive is your opportunity to see how well the car “fits” before you purchase it, so it’s important that you know what to look for and how to test drive a vehicle to determine if it’s the one for you. Before you visit a Ford dealership in Boston, read through the tips to make sure you have a successful test drive.

Do a Walk Around
Before you get behind the wheel for the actual test drive, take a walk around the vehicle you are considering. Look inside the backseat, take note of the leg room, and inspect the trunk or truck bed to determine if the vehicle offers enough cargo space for your needs. If you have young children who require car seats or you routinely transport long or awkward cargo, such as skis or golf clubs, make sure there’s enough room.

Play with the Gadgets First
Something else to do before you hit the road is to play with all of the high-tech gadgets while the car is still parked on the lot. Not only is this safer than playing with the navigation system or rearview camera while you’re driving, but it also allows you focus more of your attention on the actual drive and how the car or truck handles and performs on the road.

Replicate Your Daily Drive
When you get out on the road, try to replicate your daily drive to the best of your ability. For example, if you do a lot of highway driving, make sure to take the vehicle out on the highway to see how it handles at high speeds. Or if you do a lot of city driving, head downtown and see how comfortable the vehicle is in stop and go city traffic.

Meet the New 2016 Ford F-150

Ford Trucks BostonThe Ford F-150 has been the top-selling truck brand overall for 29 years in a row, and thanks to the 2016 model it’s safe to say the title isn’t in danger of going to any other pickup truck. Torture-tested and built Ford tough, the 2016 F-150 delivers everything you want and need in a new pickup. Engineered to be lighter, stronger, more powerful, and more capable than any previous F-150, the 2016 lineup of F-150 trucks is hard to beat. Here’s a look at some of the features of the new F-150 now available at your local Ford dealership in Boston.

Best-in-Class Gas Mileage
The 2016 F-150 is a workhorse, but it gets the job done as efficiently as possible to save you money at the pump and limit the number of pit stops and fill ups that can delay work and play. Weighing up to 700 pounds less than the previous F-150 thanks to aluminum features means the 2016 model has a higher power-to-weight ratio, which helps the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 F-150 achieve the distinction of best-in-class gas fuel economy.

Best-in-Class Towing and Payload
If you thought the F-150 was outstanding in the bets, wait until you experience the most capable F-150 yet. The 2016 Ford F-150 can two more than any other pickup in its class, delivering an impressive maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds when properly equipped. And if you do a lot of heavy hauling, you’ll appreciate the new F-150’s best-in-class maximum payload rating of 3,720 pounds.

Safest F-150 Ever
The 2016 F-150 is arguably the most capable model yet, and it’s also the safest. A high-strength, fully-boxed steel frame helped the 2016 F-150 earn a 5-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and there’s more standard and available safety features than ever before.

How to Choose the Right Engine Oil for Your Ford

Ford dealership Boston

Whether your Ford is decades old or brand new, oil changes are still among the most important maintenance tasks that can extend the life of your Ford car, truck, or SUV. If you bring your vehicle to your Boston Ford dealer for routine maintenance, a certified Ford technician will make sure your vehicle is topped off with the right type of oil. But what if you’re the hands-on, DIY type? In that case, you’ll need to make sure you use the right type of engine oil for your Ford. Here are some tips:

Refer to the Owner’s Manual
The first place to check is the owner’s manual. In addition to the manufacturer-recommended type of engine oil, the owner’s manual will also tell you when different maintenance tasks should be performed, such as oil changes, tire rotations, transmission flushes, front-end alignments, and wheel balancing services.

Ask a Ford Technician
If you can’t find the owner’s manual for your vehicle, or if you drive an older Ford model and the information in the manual doesn’t take into account new types of synthetic engine oil, visit your local Ford dealership and discuss your oil needs with a factory-certified Ford technician. Ford technicians know exactly what it takes to keep your vehicle in tiptop shape, so you can be sure that you’ll receive the best recommendation for your Ford.

Consider Additional Factors
There are additional factors you should consider when selecting engine oil for your Ford. For example, the outside temperature will determine whether you should go with a heavier or lighter engine oil. The age of your vehicle, the condition of the engine, and your driving style will also affect the right type of oil for your Ford. Again, a technician can help.

To take the guesswork (and actual work) out of maintaining your vehicle, bring it to Jack Madden Ford. Our service department provides Boston-area drivers with the very best Ford maintenance and repair services. From routine oil changes to major engine repairs and even collision repair, the service department and auto body shop at Jack Madden Ford in Boston does it all.
