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.

If you’re looking for something a little more stylish than the traditional crossover/SUV, it’s time you took a test drive in the sporty Ford Flex. As an artful take on the station wagon, the Flex provides the interior room you need for hauling the kids to soccer practice or up to six friends in the office carpool. As a vehicle built for the 21st century, the Flex offers unmistakable styling, starting with the unique grille offered either in sporty chrome or polished aluminum. Choose the two-tone appearance package for a more sophisticated look, available on both the Limited and SEL trim levels. Inspect the inventory and test drive the new Flex today when you visit Chapman Ford.

Seats for Everyone

The Ford Flex offers the ability to seat up to seven adults without sacrificing style. First row bucket seats are built for comfort, with thick bolsters and plenty of support for the back and knees. The second row bench seat comes in a 60/40 configuration, allowing you to fold it down quickly when you need room for hauling cargo. The two comfortable rear seats also fold down to offer up to 83.2 cubic feet of storage room. If you like, you can order power assisted bucket seats for the second row which creates a clear aisle to the rear seating area.

Technology Comes in Abundance

The new Ford Flex is loaded with modern technology to make your daily drive more convenient. FordPass is the smartphone app that lets you schedule maintenance, reserve parking or ask for roadside assistance at the tap of a button from your phone. Sync 3 is the voice activated smartphone system that lets you quickly change the radio station, stream your favorite music or make a phone call without ever taking your eyes off the road. You can also locate your favorite restaurants by bringing the power of the Internet right into your vehicle.

Safety Comes First in Flex

With a number of driver assistance safety features and built-in amenities to protect you and your occupants, Ford didn’t skimp when it comes to safety in the Flex. Adaptive cruise control uses sensors to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle immediately ahead of you on the highway. As they slow down, you’ll slow down, even coming to a complete stop if necessary. Second row inflatable seat belts, blind spot monitoring and active park assist are all safety features that improve your chances of making it from point A to point B without having an accident. See the styling and technology that make the Flex the smart choice for the modern driver when you visit Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.

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.”
