With more technology than most midsize sedans and a hybrid that gets staggering fuel efficiency numbers, the Ford Fusion is the perfect vehicle for modern drivers. One of the most interesting technologies available on the Ford Fusion helps improve the ride and reduces damage from potholes. Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) is a shock absorber system that’s controlled by computer. CCD continuously analyzes signals from 12 different sensors, adjusting the dampers on your shock absorber every two milliseconds. “The new Fusion V6 Sport substantially reduces the harsh impact potholes often deliver,” said Jason Michener, Ford CCD engineer. “Our new pothole mitigation technology works by actually detecting potholes and ‘catching’ the car’s wheel before it has a chance to drop all the way into the pothole.” See all the new technology and take a test drive at Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

Technology Plays Key Role

The Ford Fusion is loaded with technology that makes the driving experience more pleasant and dynamic. Starting with a rotary gear shift knob that is not only easy to use, but clears up much more room on the center console, the Fusion is a step ahead of the competition. Available SYNC3 makes changing the music or making a phone call as simple as speaking a command. SYNC connect lets you start your car remotely, lock or unlock the doors or find the vehicle in a crowded parking lot. Adaptive cruise control, start/stop functionality and forward collision warning are just a few of the features that make the Fusion not only fun to drive, but much safer.

Choose Your Design

The Fusion offers a few different models from which to choose, with varying features and prices. Even the base S package is a beautiful design, with 18-inch wheels, a leather wrapped steering wheel and a rear spoiler. The SE adds halogen fog lights, black vinyl and cloth seats with contrasting stitching, and black chrome accents. The SE Luxury Package is the height of sophistication, with a 10-way power driver seat, heated front seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The Fusion Sport comes with special sport bucket seats, dual zone climate control and better handling. The Fusion Sport also comes with a twin turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine that delivers 325 horsepower and a spine-tingling 380 pound-feet of torque. The Fusion Sport is a sport sedan unlike anything else on the market. Choose the Titanium or Platinum packages for more creature comforts. Inspect the entire Fusion lineup, including the hybrid models, when you visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

Inspired by the U.S. Air Force Fighter Jet of the same name, the Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that helped raise money for youth interested in aviation. Ford built the truck to be auctioned off at the Experimental Aircraft Association Gathering of Eagles. The sale raised $300,000 for the Young Eagle group, which is dedicated to helping children develop a love of aviation. Although you can’t buy the F-22 Raptor, Chapman Ford has a wide selection of the popular off-road truck. Stop in today for a test drive.

Takes the Ultimate High-Performance Truck Higher

The Ford F-150 Raptor is already the ultimate high-performance truck for people serious about their off-roading adventures. Ford kicked the F-22 version up a notch, inserting an intercooled and high-output 3.5L EcoBoost Twin Turbo engine that generates 545 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque. “Our job – both in the air and on the ground – is to intimidate the competition,” said Melvin Betancourt, Ford design manager. “Few things are as streamlined, as gloriously intimidating as the shape, metallic color and sinister speed a fighter jet represents. The simple, extreme functionality of the cockpit alone proved inspiring, prompting the team to create matte finishes, purposeful gauges, controls for ready proximity and dramatic LED lighting for the instrument panel.” The F-22 Raptor had many other innovations, including racing shocks and custom forged beadlock wheels, a 1.3 million candela off-road lighting system, 1,500-watt audio surround sound and carbon fiber fender flares with fender and hood vents to help keep the engine cool.

Raptor Ready for Your Off-road Trip

Although the F-22 Raptor was built for one lucky person, you can still get your hands on the most capable off-road truck on the planet by visiting Chapman Ford in Scottsdale. The Ford Raptor recently completed the SCORE Baja 1000 grueling off-road race in almost stock version. With a 450 horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost engine providing the power, a torque on demand transfer case distributing that power, and an off-road suspension system built with premium parts, the Raptor can take anything you want to put in its way.

Raptor is ‘Big, Bad and Bold’

Car and Driver Magazine took the Ford F-150 Raptor on what turned into a 40,000-mile test drive. The end result? They call it “big, bad and bold.”  They wrote that for all its off-road prowess, and there’s plenty of that, the Raptor is still perfect for hauling large loads or taking the kids to school. It features a sophisticated cabin with leather seats that have big bolsters to hold you in place when the trail gets a little dicey. The use of premium materials and loads of technology keep you comfortable while the terrain gets out of control. The only way to truly experience a Raptor is to take one for a test drive. The friendly folks at Chapman Ford are ready and waiting to help you do just that.

While the growl of the mighty V8 in the new Ford Mustang GT is music to a car enthusiast’s ear, it can make the neighbors a bit testy, especially when you wake them from a sound sleep. That’s why Ford engineers developed a “quiet exhaust” mode for the 2018 Mustang, allowing drivers to tone down the noise until they get out on the open road. “I love the sound of the V8, but it can be loud and you can’t annoy people like that in your neighborhood,” said Ford engineer Steve von Foerster. “It sounds so cool, but I thought, ‘There has to be a way to give people more control over the engine’s sound.’” That thought came after a neighbor called the police on von Foerster, who avoided a ticket but started a discussion with fellow engineers. The result is a noise deadening system that keeps everyone happy. You’ll be able to test drive the 2018 Mustang soon at Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

Programmable Noise Levels

The new Ford Mustang’s “Quiet Start” option features controls mounted on the steering wheel that allows drivers to select “quiet times” to start their vehicle. The Mustang will automatically deaden the noise upon startup at those times, allowing you to keep peace with the neighbors. It’s all part of the active valve performance system available on the new Mustang GT. It also allows different volumes for the exhaust system based on Track, Sport and Normal modes. “Active valve performance exhaust gives Mustang owners the best of both worlds – that classic Mustang sound, and the ability to not wake up your neighbors when you leave the house early in the morning or arrive home late at night,” according to Ford engineer Matt Flis.

Only One of Many Changes

The active valve performance exhaust feature is only one of many new changes coming when the new Ford Mustang arrives at Chapman Ford this fall. Along with a new design on both the exterior and interior, the new Mustang will offer a 10-speed automatic transmission, MagneRide automatic damping to improve handling and a totally digital 12-inch instrument cluster that will personalize how you receive vehicle information. Drag Strip mode is a new innovation that allows the new Mustang GT to go from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds, faster than sports cars costing tens of thousands of dollars more. With the new Mustang, you can do that more quietly than ever before. “When sounds get up into the upper 70-decibel range, that’s typically about when they start to bother people,” according to Flis. “With quiet start activated, the decibel level of the new Mustang GT drops about 10 decibels.”

 

Ford Unveils First Police Pursuit Pickup

Law enforcement agencies now have another tool to chase the bad guys with the recent unveiling of the Ford F-150 Police Responder. With an efficient 3.5L EcoBoost engine providing top speeds up to 100 mph, the newest version of the F-150 lineup offers a capable chase vehicle with the ability to go off-road. Ford started with the F-150 FX4 off-road 4×4 and then added special enhancements to provide a safe and effective chase vehicle. “Ford’s 2018 F-150 Police Responder is the perfect all-terrain law enforcement vehicle,” according to Ford marketing manager Stephen Tyler. “Aside from its industry-first on-road pursuit capability, the purpose-built pickup can comfortably seat five, while providing capability in off-road patrol situations for officers in rural environments patrolled by sheriff’s departments, border patrol operations and the Department of Natural Resources.” Although private individuals can’t purchase the Police Responder, you can see and test drive the entire F-150 lineup at Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

F-150 Overflowing with Innovation

The Police Responder is just another innovation from a truck that is overflowing with ground-breaking ideas. The all-new F-150 has a body that’s 700 pounds lighter than the previous version thanks to the use of high-strength military grade aluminum alloy. The twin-turbo V6, the same engine that’s in the Police Responder, is an efficient motor that offers 375 horsepower and best-in-class 470 pound-feet of torque. That gives the new F-150 the towing capability that beats all competitors. Pro Trailer Backup Assist is just another innovation that makes your driving life easier. Instead of trying to remember which way to turn the steering wheel to back a trailer into position, you simply turn a knob the way you want the trailer to move. It’s the simple things that make Ford special.

Many Trim Packages for Many Budgets

Starting at a little more than $27,000, the Ford XL is the perfect choice for someone who needs a work truck or the ability to haul an occasional load to the dump. The creature comforts really start to kick in when you get to the Lariat model, with leather trimmed bucket seats and 10-way power front seats that are heated and ventilated. The Raptor is the world’s most capable off-road truck, with an electronic locking rear differential, high output racking shocks and a torque-on-demand transfer case. The Raptor also comes with a standard 36-gallon fuel tank, giving you plenty of gas to explore the great beyond. For the ultimate in sophistication and luxury, consider the King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trim packages. You can compare a large selection of different models and cab configurations of the Ford F-150 when you visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

If you haven’t test driven a Ford Fiesta, head to Chapman Ford today and see how impressed you are by the power and responsiveness of the compact car’s 1.0L engine. That’s the same engine that has been voted “Best Engine Under 1.0-liter” for six consecutive years by the International Engine of the Year competition. Ford has won 10 International Engine awards for the popular motor since the contest launch in 2012. “Our 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has been a game-changer, setting the benchmark for compact, fuel-efficient engines with sophisticated EcoBoost turbocharging, direct fuel injection and Twin-independent Variable Camshaft Timing technologies,” according to Ford VP Joe Bakaj “Even with 10 International Engine of the Year awards under our belt, we’re still finding ways to push back the boundaries of powertrain engineering, and deliver even more benefit to our customers from this acclaimed small engine.”

Fiesta a Fun Blend of Features

Whether you’re looking for sophisticated technology, near-hybrid fuel efficiency or just a fun-to-drive affordable ride that makes your daily commute more pleasurable, the Ford Fiesta is ready to serve. Offering both a 1.6L or 1.0L EcoBoost engine that earns a rating of 43 mpg on the highway, the Fiesta delivers a price-sensitive alternative to the hybrids that cost thousands of dollars more. “Customers want cars that are expressive and fun,” according to Ford executive Joe Hinrichs. “Fiesta delivers all the excitement drivers are looking for in a car we believe raises the bar even higher for small cars in North America.”

Perfect Car for People Who Like to Live

Starting at just $13,660, the 2017 Ford Fiesta offers seating for five and a sporty design that’s perfect for the modern commuter. Nimble handling and a finely tuned chassis delivers the ride and driving experience drivers have come to expect from Ford. Offered in both hatchback and sedan body styles, the Fiesta is versatile enough to be a perfect fit for the office carpools, ferrying kids to soccer practice or making the weekly warehouse grocery run. Choose the SE Appearance Package and you’ll get the SYNC 3 voice recognition communication system that responds quickly to your commands to change the music, make a phone call or respond to a text message. SYNC 3 pairs with your Apple or Android phone to utilize a limited number of apps, as well as take advantage of your phone navigation system to provide turn-by-turn directions to your destination. When it comes to advanced technology, the FordPass app makes your daily transportation needs much easier, allowing you to find and pay for parking, control some vehicle functions, and generally acting as a personal assistant for your driving needs.
