If you’re looking to take advantage of some outstanding year-end deals on the remaining inventory of 2017 models, look no farther than Chapman Ford in Scottsdale. For a limited time, Ford Credit is offering qualified buyers 0 percent interest for 72 months along with $1,000 in Ford Credit bonus cash. That equates to low, low payments on vehicles ranging from the compact Ford Focus all the way up to the Expedition, the full-size SUV that makes those long Holiday trips to grandma’s house a pleasant experience. Note that 2017 stock is limited and you must take delivery by January 2, 2018 to qualify for the savings.

Focus the Affordable Hatch That’s Fun to Drive

Starting at just $17,680, the Ford Focus is the perfect vehicle for the budget-conscious consumer who needs great gas mileage and superior driving dynamics. Every Ford Focus comes with standard torque vectoring control which regulates power to the front wheels during turns, giving you better control in tough conditions or when you’re pushing your new Focus to the max. A standard 1.0L 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine is turbocharged and fuel injected to deliver fuel economy in the near-hybrid range of 40 mpg on the highway. The low friction of all three cylinders combines with the turbocharger to produce a boost that is surprisingly thrilling when you step on the gas.

Fusion Delivers Luxury Feel and Room to Grow

If you need something a bit larger, the Ford Fusion is the midsize sedan that answers all the check boxes when it comes to performance, sophistication and modern styling. With plenty of room for five adults, you’ll either be the most popular person in the office carpool or will be the top-rated driver for your rideshare side hustle. Starting at just a tick over $22,000, the Fusion delivers an amazing 32 mpg on the highway in the gasoline version and up to 43 mpg on the highway for the hybrid. At 0 percent financing for 72 months, you can get all the options you always wanted but thought you could never afford.

Expedition the Ultimate People Hauler

So, you got married and then all of a sudden you had six kids, or maybe five kids and a dog? The 2017 Ford Expedition is the vehicle for you. With seating for up to eight, the Expedition provides the room for people and animals to stretch out without getting into the personal space of others. A 3.5L EcoBoost engine aided by twin turbochargers delivers up to 24 mpg on the highway, a phenomenal number for a vehicle this large and powerful. The special financing rate makes the Expedition more affordable than ever, but you’d better hurry into Chapman Ford as the 2017 models are going fast.

You rush to get everyone in the car, fight to get the bags in and out of the vehicle and race to catch the shuttle from the terminal parking area. Then you stand in one line after another, suffer through indignities necessitated by the world we live in today and finally, after a long flight where your knees spend most of the time getting rammed by the seat in front of you, you finally arrive at your destination. Then you find your bags, find a ride and finally arrive exhausted at your destination. If this sounds like your normal holiday travel schedule, the folks at Chapman Ford offer an interesting alternative: Why not drive where you’re going during the holidays?

The Ford Expedition is the comfortable people hauler that offers the room, the technology and all the creature comforts to make your trip much more enjoyable than air travel. “The all-new Expedition fits eight people comfortably and can carry all of their luggage, while keeping everyone connected and entertained,” said Ford engineer Todd Hoevener, who is putting his money where his mouth is. Hoevener chose to use an Expedition to take his family from Michigan to Florida this December. “It’s really the ultimate road trip vehicle.”

Comfort the Key to Enjoying Your Trip

If you’re going more than an hour on a plane, chances are by the time to get your destination you’ll not only be in pain but exhausted. Airlines make their money by cramming as many people onto a plane as possible, which means there is very little room between your heels and hips. Not so in the new Ford Expedition, where a generous allotment of space in all three rows takes the fatigue, and pain, out of traveling. It’s also much easier to stay connected in the Expedition, with standard USB charging ports on each row to keep all the electronics up to optimal levels. That means the kids can play games or watch movies and not practice sticking their fingers in each other’s ears. If you do all agree on a music choice, an available 12-speaker supreme audio system will bathe the entire cabin in concert-quality sound.

Long Range Means Less Fuel Stops

With a large fuel tank and best-in-class gas mileage, the two-wheel drive Expedition Max delivers up to 538 miles in range. That’s farther than from Phoenix to Los Angeles or San Diego, meaning you can spend more time moving and less time ferrying the herd in and out of convenience stores. The 3.5L EcoBoost engine is paired with a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission that delivers a stunning 24 mpg on the highway. That makes the Expedition the only full-size SUV to earn 20 mpg in combined driving. The Expedition is also as beautiful to look at as it is to drive. With six different trim levels, there’s a price point for everyone. See the entire Expedition lineup and take a test drive today at Chapman Ford.

Already one of the most fun cars to drive on the planet, the 2018 Ford Mustang GT now benefits from the addition of a performance pack that came about as the result of the engineering group’s love of driving. The Ford team in charge of Mustang enhancements worked nights and weekends to create a package of accessories that increase both performance and handling, turning the Mustang GT into a smile a minute thrill machine. “A passion to create something special is what really drove this project,” according to Mustang engineering manager Tom Barnes. “And that really showed in the off-the-clock way we went about doing our work.” Check in with the pros at Chapman Ford to see about test driving the new Ford Mustang GT.

Wheels, Tires and Shocks; Oh My!

A unique 19-inch wheel design made a notable improvement in the handling and steering response, while Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires provided extra grip on the road. New MagneRide dampers are custom tuned to the Ford Mustang GT’s overall suspension, while stiffer stabilizer bars in the front and rear provide a much more controlled driving experience with less body roll. An aerodynamics team, led by a former NASA specialist, developed a high-performance rear spoiler and front splitter to get the maximum downforce to keep the car glued to the road. Jamie Cullen, a Ford development supervisor, was the lucky guy who got to test drive all the work of the engineers. “It will just beg you to go faster,” Cullen said. “The car has lightning quick response and never gives up grip.”

Put the Roar Back in Your Drive

As the original charter member of the American Pony Car Industry, the Ford Mustang has been providing thrills and excitement for more than 50 years. The Mustang is about as affordable as sports car can come, with pricing starting at just $25,585. The latest version of the Mustang has a lower hood and a wider mouth, the better with which to eat up the competition. The Mustang comes in nine different trim packages, topped off by the Shelby GT 350. More of a dream come true than just another sports car, the GT350 is designed to be lightning fast while providing an exhilarating ride. A Sunday drive to Grandma’s was never so much fun.

EcoBoost Proves Big Things Come in Small Packages

The 2.3L EcoBoost engine in the Ford Mustang may be small, but it is fierce. Engineered to deliver 350 pound-feet of torque, this mighty motor will launch you off the line to the dismay of any who may offer  a challenge. The GT delivers a 5.0L V8 for people who need a bit more power. Both are paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that gets the very most out of every RPM. If you’re looking for a good time, visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale today and take a test drive in the new Mustang.

From its statement-making front grille to the LED lighting in the rear, the 2018 Ford Explorer has been redesigned to meet the needs of the explorer in everyone. The interior features the use of upscale materials and bold new colors that scream sophistication and comfort. Choose from five different wheel options to pick the rims that are just right for you. Whether you’re traveling down the nation’s freeways or exploring a dusty trail, the new Ford Explorer offers a presence that will turn heads while putting a smile on the faces of you and your passengers. See the new Explorer and take a test drive when the new Explorer arrives at Chapman Ford.

EcoBoost Provides Power and Efficiency

The 2018 Ford Explorer comes standard with a powerful 3.5L V6 engine that produces 290 horsepower and a healthy 24 mpg on the highway. For almost as much power (280 horses), but more torque and greater fuel efficiency, consider the new 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. That motor delivers 27 mpg with front-wheel drive and 25 mpg when you opt for the all-wheel drive package. For the most power, choose the 3.5L EcoBoost that combines turbocharging and direct injection to generate a best in class 365 horsepower and stout 365 pound feet of torque. This comes standard in the Explorer Sport and Platinum trim levels and is the best choice for recreational trailering.

Slip into Something Comfortable

If comfort is a key consideration on your daily drive, you’d do well to take a look at the new Explorer when it arrives on the showroom floor at Chapman Ford. Available features like a 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, leather-wrapped steering wheel that’s heated on some models and illuminated front scuff plates all add to the amenities. The Limited and Platinum models offer both heated and cooled front-row seats. The Platinum model is the height of sophistication with real wood on the steering wheel, a digital instrument panel and supple Nirvana leather that supports your body with a warm embrace. Hit a button to open up the dual moonroof and let Mother Nature come in, then drown her out by cranking up the 500-watt Sony audio system all the way to 11. Available second row bucket seats offer a little more comfort and room for your passengers to stretch out. The 2018 Ford Explorer offers the driving dynamics, smooth ride and creature comforts that modern drivers crave. Keep in touch with Chapman Ford to see when you can take your test drive and take this modern marvel of engineering home.

For those with particularly high hauling and towing needs, the new Ford Super Duty Limited provides not only the power and performance, but luxury that was previously only found in premium luxury sedans. “The Super Duty lineup is a win for all our customers, from successful ranchers to contractors to RV owners,” according to Ford Truck marketing manager Todd Eckert. “Super Duty Limited is the most luxurious and advanced heavy-duty pickup truck ever created by Ford for those accomplished buyers with an appetite for the high life and the hard-earned dollars to match.” The F-250 Super Duty Limited starts at just under $81,000, but a buyer who selects all the options on an F-450 4×4 can drive the price up to $94,455, still much less than many premium luxury sedans. See the new Super Duty Limited and find out just how much luxury is available on a heavy-duty truck when you visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

Limited Top of Luxury Lineup

Buyers who enjoy luxury have had plenty to choose from before with the Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models of the Ford lineup. The new Limited model takes luxury a step farther, with features such as custom two-tone leather seats, hand-finished wood trim and special Limited badging. “There are heavy-duty truck customers who need Super Duty-level capability and want true luxury,” said Eckert. “We created this new truck to answer the call for even more premium choices in the Super Duty range as we see more and more truck customers trending to more premium models.” The Super Duty Limited comes with about every imaginable feature to get the job done and provide comfort to the driver and passengers. These features include a high-definition 360-degree camera with trailer reverse guidance, SYNC 3 voice recognition software, adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering and lane-keeping alert. Slip into the cockpit and look up and you’ll see a panoramic moon roof as you’re enjoying your heated and ventilated front seats. “Imagine opening the door to your humidor and sinking into your favorite leather lounge chair – that’s the sensation the new Super Duty Limited inspires,” according to Aileen Barraza, Ford design manager.

Still Plenty of Affordable Choices

The new Ford Super Duty Limited is a choice for affluent buyers, but there are still plenty of affordable options for people who just need to get the job done. The F-250 XL is a work horse that has decades of proven dependability along with the power to handle just about any load. You can see the entire lineup of Ford Super Duty trucks, including the Limited when it arrives later this winter, by visiting Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.
