What EVs Do We Offer New?
At Future Ford of Sacramento, we offer some of the most stylish and best-selling EVs on the market. You may have already seen two of the most eye-catching ones gracing the roadways: the Ford Mach-E and the Ford F-150 Lightning.
You might be familiar with the Ford Mustang, but now Ford offers drivers even more versatility with its newly designed Mach-E, which takes its design cues from the iconic sports car. Adding a few more doors, a little more space, and green technology, the Mach-E is Ford’s answer to the compact crossover. Since its introduction in 2020, the Mach-E has gone on to become one of America’s best-selling electric vehicles.
Thanks to its high-end good looks and its affordability, the Ford Mach-E makes electric vehicles accessible to more drivers than ever before. Not only does the Mach-E offer between 240-300 miles of driving when fully charged, but Ford didn’t skip on the details when it comes to the interior. A modern, high-end feel with soft materials and sleek lines makes the Mach-E fun to drive. With great cargo room, ample head and leg room, and responsive steering, drivers will have no problem incorporating the Mach-E into their daily lives.
What if you need more power or more space? Ford puts any rumors that EV vehicles don’t have the performance of gas-powered engines with its award-winning Ford Lightning. The Ford F-150 Lightning became America’s best-selling electric truck in 2022—the year it was introduced—and was named North America’s Truck of the Year.
This isn’t a surprise for drivers of the traditional best-selling F-150. Ford’s F-Series is often at the top of truck drivers’ wish lists. So those looking to reduce their carbon emissions without reducing power know they can count on the Lightning to deliver. The Ford Lightning delivers a driving range of 240-300 miles on a single fully charged battery, allowing drivers to get where they’re going without having to pause at the pumps. As for performance, expect high torque, stellar towing power, and an onboard outlet to give you power where and when you need it the most.
Highlights of the 2023 Lightning
The 2023 Lightning builds on the previous success of the 2022 model, giving truck drivers even more for their money. One of Ford’s biggest improvements was to increase the truck’s mileage, bumping the standard battery from 230 to 240 miles per full charge. The new addition of Pro Trailer Hitch Assist makes hauling and towing easier and safer than ever before; when fully equipped, the Ford Lightning can haul upwards of 5,000 lbs.
As for the inside, expect all the creature comforts along with forward-thinking technology that creates a relaxing and personalized driving experience. Whether you’re taking your office with you on the road or simply running errands, the Lightning is designed to make the most out of every drive thanks to smart storage and user-friendly voice-activated tech.
When it comes to charging, the F-150 Lightning gives drivers a variety of options to power up. Charge from home and accumulate a full battery overnight; if you’re on the go, stop at one of the Blue Oval’s 25,000+ charge stations and get fast charging when and where you need it.
Highlights of the 2023 Mach-E
The 2023 Mach-E is an impressive EV and one of the best you can get for your money. The 2023 model is sleek and offers buyers responsive, smooth driving combined with agile handling for an unbeatable daily drive. With seating for up to five, the 2033 Mach-E offers a roomy cabin plus ample cargo space, making it a flexible vehicle that can grow and change with your needs.
New additions for 2023 include an Extended Range battery pack with all-wheel drive available on the Premium models. This gives drives an extra 13 miles per battery charge. On average, the 2023 Mach-E will take you 240 miles per charge when equipped with the standard battery. Drivers can expect to go from zero to sixty in 3.5 seconds, with zero emissions and plenty of power, thanks to Mach-E’s advanced performance technology that turns every drive into an experience.
As for charging, Ford makes it easy with multiple charging options, including the choice to charge at home or on the road. The Blue Oval Network extends to over 25,000 North American charging stations and is growing every year, making it a breeze for drivers to power up without slowing down.
What to Consider When Shopping for an EV
To make the transition from a traditional gas-powered engine to an electric vehicle easier, asking yourself a few questions can help you narrow down your search and smooth out any bumps in the road. First, ask yourself what your budget is. Are you looking for a new or pre-owned vehicle? This gives you somewhere to start in your research, helping you track down the best-performing, longest-lasting, and most popular EVs available.
Make sure you check the EV’s battery range. Not all EVs are created equal, with some delivering a far superior battery range compared to other models. New technological advances usually mean longer battery ranges are introduced every year. Check out charging requirements and stations near you, too; make sure the model you’re looking at is compatible with nearby stations.
What are you looking for? What’s your lifestyle like? Drivers might be in the market for a sedan or a crossover, or maybe they need a solid work truck. Making sure you get the vehicle that matches your needs and lifestyle is essential when it comes to buying a new vehicle.
Being aware of the battery and the model’s warranty information is a smart move. Drivers can get the peace of mind they’re after when switching to electric if they know they are covered if something goes wrong. However, if you’re not covered, knowing the expense of repairs or a battery replacement is crucial if you don’t want to break your budget.
Also, just like different batteries can offer different ranges, they can offer different levels of performance. If you’re towing or hauling, and you want four-wheel drive, check the fine print to ensure your new EV can handle what you need it to.
