FORD Goes Further for the NAIAS

Ford had the best exhibits at the Auto Show.  The new F-150 was my main reason in wanting to attend NAIAS.  I needed to do a little field research. Afterall, engineering is my foundation and my Dad retired from Ford in Sterling Heights, MI.

The Ford exhibit was like stepping into a new world.  We signed up for a Blue Oval Card that would track our data for easy access.  All we had to do was scan the card and it saved time with entering info for every experience.

We toured the electric vehicles.  72 miles off a 3 hour charge.  I was told the monthly cost to operate is equivalent to 1 tank of gas.

Next, we headed to the Focus area where we saw a simulator of the ST.  We waited an hour in line to race each other and it was so worth it.  I almost broke a nail trying to handle what felt like Mustang GT.

I ran off the track a few times but I still won.  I think I was a race car driver in a previous life.

Now on to my all time favorite.   I ♡ Mustangs with a passion.  I like the old schools to the money green 5.0 Menace to Society Stang, to the all new 2015! 

Convertible is a must!

Mustang had an area upstairs for children to assemble model mustangs and photo designs.

We stepped back into the Lincoln area to check out the MKC concept.  There where these eye catching animated hoberman spheres above the displays.

Here is the edge concept.

On the way out, we sat inside the roomy F150 Limited and Lariat.  We watched a presentation about the 2015 F150.  There was a mini assembly line set up to explain the new aluminum body.

      I can’t wait to see what the new fusion looks like. According to the reps, there is no news on any changes at this time. Ford’s set up was very educational and interactive. Far exceeds the days of passing out posters. Thanks for following my blog!
