Which Ford Model Is Best For Graduates?

Here at Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership, we want to congratulate our local students who have recently graduated from high school or college. It is an amazing achievement and one that should be properly celebrated, so why not treat yourself to a new or used Ford? Understanding that money can be a little tight for recent graduates, our experienced staff is ready to walk you through our inventory of Ford models for graduates, set up test drives for whichever models catch your eye and work with you to find the right financial option for your individual budget. Here are three wonderful and affordable Ford models that our team at Jack Powell Ford think would be great for graduates:

Ford Focus

A sleek and attractive sedan, the Ford Focus is ready to take you wherever you want to go in style. This is the ideal starter car for a graduate, especially for the commute to your first job after your time in school. Under the hood of the 2018 model, you will see the standard Torque Vectoring Control. This is a standard component, helping your front wheels grip and handle turns better than ever. It will also help you when you find yourself driving in wet conditions. The AdvanceTrac® Electronic Stability Control (ESC) has an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) that watches road conditions and measures your responses. Then, the system will adjust how well your 2018 Ford Focus performs.

A SmartGauge® featuring EcoGuide along your dashboard gives you real-time driving information like Energy History and the Brake Coach. These features are there to assist your driving habits with ways that can maximize the performance of your 2018 Ford Focus, along with tracking and improving how it handles. Here at Jack Powell Ford, we will be glad to take you through the specifications of the Ford Focus and answer all of your questions.

Ford Escape

Are you in the market for a crossover SUV that has the space and muscle you need to transport furniture or supplies to your new apartment? Then you definitely will want to check out the Ford Escape. One of the top performing crossover SUV models for many years now, the 2018 model has even more stunning performance statistics that are wonderfully balanced with a stylish appearance. The base engine for this Escape gives you 21 MPG in the city and 29 MPG when you are out on the highway.

Since safety is important, the 2018 model has multiple features like a standard rearview backup camera that allows you to see obstacles behind you that your mirrors might miss. Available safety features include automatic parking, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitoring and assisted pre-collision braking. Our team at Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership, guarantee you will have peace of mind when behind the wheel of a Ford Escape.

With its athletic exterior and comfortable interior, the Ford Fusion is a vehicle that cannot wait to make all of your drives into very fun experiences. The 2018 model has new and exciting aspects, like the one-of-a-kind rotary shift gear dial, which puts the cupholders in a better spot than ever before. Its pre-collision assist system has pedestrian detection, which uses sensors to detect possible collisions so you can avoid them. If a crash is near, a warning signal will directly flash directly on your windshield as an alarm goes off. If a collision is unavoidable, your Fusion will charge the brakes and provide you with improved responsiveness and sensitivity.

The FordPass technology is an app that gives you total control over your Fusion. You will be able to locate and reserve parking spots, check the price of fuel and even schedule your maintenance and service appointments with this amazing app. Here at Jack Powell Ford, we will be happy to discuss these features with you and point out any others that might catch your eye. These models and many other ones are all waiting for you at Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership.
