Every day mothers take to the streets - hurrying from store to store to complete their seemingly endless errands; serving as providers, chauffeurs and backseat entertainers; mastering turn signals and traffic patterns alike. Every mile yields another task to accomplish.
Ford has the utmost respect for these tireless women - which is why it now challenges those without children to sample a typical parental experience. Watch below as the company launches the ultimate Mother’s Day test.
On May 10th Mother’s Day will begin. Join Ford and the Key West team in wishing each woman much health and happiness (and offer to do the driving for once)!

In 1968 the world was introduced to Hot Wheels. These die-cast toys - which were scale models of fastback favorites, like the Mustang, the Camaro or the Barracuda - were instantly embedded into pop-culture, thrilling children and adults alike.
Now the Hot Wheels brand has been launched yet again into the spotlight... thanks to Ford.
The company - wanting to inspire young minds with science and design - recently created the world’s largest Hot Wheels loop, setting a record with a staggering 150-inch spiral. Want to see it action?
Ford’s Hot Wheels project was meant to capture childrens’ imaginations, translating STEM algorithms into toys and showcasing what engineering could accomplish. We think this experiment succeeded - don’t you?

Ford understands that mastering the road requires far more than EcoBoost engines and V8 power. Instead Smart Mobility - a series of algorithms and data protocols, all continuously feeding drivers information - is needed.
This is why the company recently launched the Big Data Drive.
The Big Data Drive serves as a way to conduct real-time experiments, utilizing cloud technology to examine driver habits, including: fuel efficiency, braking, speeding, route choices and more. This allows Ford to better understand how each vehicle is being used and how to then improve it.

Smart Mobility promises enhanced vehicle performance. By collecting data Ford can learn what drivers need to succeed on the open road - and this will translate to more effective designs and stronger mechanics.

The Ford Galaxy ranks among the world's most popular people-carriers, offering drivers spacious interiors and efficient fuel distribution. Its stylish exterior conceals a 2.0L TDCi engine, capable of achieving 207 BHP and 332 lb.-ft of torque. It’s a family-friendly powerhouse.
It’s also a mechanical marvel.
Check out the 2015 Ford Galaxy and its exclusive EasyFold System, an option that allows drivers to reconfigure all seats with the press of a button.
The EasyFold System promises streamlined driving experiences, allowing the Galaxy to adapt to all family needs. Slide, tilt and fold each seat for endless configurations. The button-touch controls ensure fast storage for every day.
BC drivers would benefit greatly from the Galaxy’s practical design. The Key West team is sad to report, however, that this car is currently only available in Europe - but the EasyFold System may soon be adopted by other models, allowing it to cross the pond and end up in our dealership.
We’ll keep you posted!

It’s a familiar moment: you pull from the curb, hoping to take advantage of a rare traffic lull. You’ve checked your mirrors; you’ve turned on your signals; you’ve even asked your passengers to scout potential problems. They find none and so... you roll toward the road.
That’s when a truck comes barreling over the hill and nearly crashes into you.
Ford understands that even the most cautious drivers can find themselves in dangerous situations - and that’s why the company has developed a new 180-degree camera system for its 2015 S-MAX. Prepare to see clearly and stay safe.
With the release of the 2015 S-Max Ford is bringing new levels of safety to the road. The 180-degree camera promises quicker responses and easier navigation, allowing drivers to see beyond even the sharpest corners. This, when coupled with the car’s 2.0L engine and EcoBoost enhancement, promises superior results.

Urban traffic is on the rise. Countless coupes, trucks and sedans crowd the roads - forcing drivers to endure early morning chaos. Every mile is a struggle and every minute is heavy with exhaust. Trying to get to work becomes a near impossibility.
Watch below as the company details its new Smart Mobility program, a series of apps and innovations intended to streamline the driving process. Moving through the city will no longer be a problem.
With the launch of Smart Mobility Ford is redefining driving. Its integrated systems will allow car-owners to better control their mornings and find the best routes possible - which will translate to far less stress on the roads.
On April 22nd Ford - along with countless other companies throughout North America - celebrated Take Your Kids To Work day, an annual event meant to introduce young minds to the facets of industry. The automotive giant challenged its littlest employees to come up with new design options for future cars, as well as to create social media strategies.
The results were... interesting, to say the least.

The European market is defined by superior style. Manufacturers dedicate themselves to crafting cars that are both economical and effortless, emphasizing luxury with every chrome-covered line.
Until recently, Ford had made little impact in Great Britain, Germany and other auto powerhouses. The company was famed more for its backroad adventures than its elegant designs. With the introduction of the 2015 Vignale Mondeo, however, this will soon change.
Watch below as Ford revs toward luxury branding.
The Vignale Mondeo - with its 2.0L EcoBoost engine and 237 HP capabilities - delivers power and performance. This vehicle boasts far more above the hood than beneath, however, and its aesthetics are undeniable. Drivers will soon enjoy polished aluminum accents, a supple interior and bold LED styling.
The Key West team is sad to report that this styling isn’t available in BC. Ford is keeping the Mondeo cloistered in Europe and currently has no plans to bring the car overseas. We’ve got our fingers crossed, however, that a future expansion may occur - especially if sales prove high.
We’ll be sure to keep you informed of any changes!
