No vehicle manufacturer over the years has a storied prestige like Ford. You can’t write the history of quality cars and trucks without putting Ford at the forefront. With this heralded background comes continuous innovation that reshaped and focused the direction for vehicle production across the industry. From the growth of the assembly line that changed the face of manufacturing to developing safety features and pushing vehicle production, let Zender Ford show you how Ford is always innovating.
Ford has always been known for excellent performance, whether it’s the rugged toughness of the Ford F-150 or the classic sense of style and power that radiates from the Ford Mustang. Even the Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus have gotten in on the fun with added variants that made these mid-size sedans amongst the most powerful in their class. The Ford EcoBoost technology is the company’s commitment come to life to produce high performing engines in small designs. These turbocharged, direct injection engines aim to provide torque and power competitive against larger engines at an improved fuel efficiency. The sporty engines continue to power a wide range of Ford models, giving the driver a broad selection of optimal benefits when they step on the pedal.
Ford introduced and improved on a bevy of safety technologies throughout the decades, keeping drivers and passengers secure. Ford became one of the first American companies to issue vehicle seat belts, outfitted in some models as early as 1955 with this life-saving technology. They continued this safety innovation into the 1980s by modifying the injection tongue into end-release buckles, the ones predominantly used today. Ford was one of the first car manufacturers to put child safety front of mind by introducing child safety locks into our vehicles. Windshield safety glass was also an important introduction in these early models, with Ford once again being a pioneer in the installation of these essential vehicle parts.
Ford continues to push into the modern age and beyond with boundary pushing technologies that serve to usher vehicles into the new world. While you might take that flashy HD screen in your Ford for granted now, it wasn’t always like that. In the mid-2000s, Ford partnered with Microsoft to develop the basis of the infotainment systems you enjoy today. While they endured some bumps along the road— like any leading company—Ford persevered and would later partner with Blackberry to get the information technology in Fords to the level that the customer deserves. As engine designs have advanced and people have become more and more in tune with driving environmentally-sustainable cars, Ford marched along with this initiative. Ford is one of the leading sellers of both hybrid and electric vehicles, with a wide selection of these options covering the Ford vehicle lineup. These vehicles continue to grow to meet the needs and demands of our customers and the world they drive their vehicles in.
