The History of Ford Motor Company
Henry Ford, the accomplished founder of Ford Motor Company, started the iconic Ford Motor Company on June 16, 1903. His lifelong contributions to the automotive industry are still evident in today’s modern and technologically advanced Ford lineup of cars, trucks, and SUVs. Everyone knows the classic Model T, but what you may not know is that Ford produced it for 20 years and sold over 15 million of them.
Ford’s early years included innovations in manufacturing, specifically the assembly line, which led to an ability to mass-produce vehicles. The company’s volume capabilities led to greater and greater market penetration and set the standard for how factories operated. This revolutionized the car business forever because as the cost to build a car decreased, so did retail prices, putting new cars within reach of buyers at all socioeconomic levels.
Other notable Ford milestones include the F-Series pickup, first launched in 1948. The F-150 is America’s best-selling vehicle today and has been for over 35 years. The Ford lineup still features legendary nameplates like the Mustang and the Bronco, the latter of which was re-released after a long hiatus. It begs the question, will we see other iconic brands – like the T-Bird – make a comeback, too?
As Ford gears up for the next 30 years of cutting-edge auto manufacturing, we can expect to see more alternative fuel vehicles. The lineup already includes two brand new models that have journalists pretty excited: the Mustang Mach-E and the F-150 Lightning. Both vehicles are 100 percent electric, offering class-leading performance and capability, along with extended driving range and futuristic styling.
Gold River Residents: Here’s What You Should Look for in a New or Used Ford
Whether you’re gearing up to buy a new or used Ford, it’s important to keep a few shopping tips in mind. First, decide ahead of time the max price you’re comfortable paying. Knowing your budget, including monthly payment goals, helps our sales consultants make more specific recommendations, which means you’ll save time, and you won’t find yourself falling in love with a vehicle that’s out of your range.
New Ford buyers likely have a good idea of what they want, but if you’re still deciding on the type of vehicle (e.g., car, SUV), it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start shopping. Our team is trained to work with buyers at all stages of the buying cycle. If you’re in the early stages, we recommend stopping by to see the Ford lineup in person. Buyers who know what they want might enjoy browsing our new inventory online.
If you’re a used Ford buyer, it’s best to decide if you’re shopping for a dollar amount or a specific type of vehicle. We see plenty of customers in both camps. Typically, price shoppers are looking for affordability first and foremost, and they tend to be flexible on body style. Conversely, if your heart is set on a pre-owned F-150 or an Explorer, you’ve likely done your research, and it’s our job to find the exact one you want.
Clearly, not every buyer fits into a tidy little box of criteria, which is why we invite you to call or visit Future Ford of Sacramento and chat with a member of our sales team. With a few qualifying questions, we can help you determine what to look for in a new or used Ford and narrow down the universe of options to a manageable list of vehicles. The bottom line is when you work with us, you take the lead. We’re here to support you in any way we can.
Options for Financing Your Ford
Once you’ve selected your dream new or used Ford, the next step is to get you financed. Unless you’re paying cash, you’ll be looking at a traditional loan or a lease. Used cars don’t usually qualify for a lease program (with the exception of Certified Pre-Owned models in some cases), so our finance team will focus on matching you to a loan. Either way, our large sales volume means we can sift through dozens of lenders. That’s great news for you, our valued customer. You’ll save both time and money when you work with us.
Your loan term, credit score, and down payment amount determine your monthly payment, so after you’ve submitted an application, which you can do online from the comfort of your home, our team of finance pros will go to work, uncovering the most aggressive plan possible. We are skilled at helping buyers with challenged credit, so if your score isn’t ideal, know that our team will get you financed.
As a new buyer, your biggest consideration is deciding between a purchase or a lease. The Future Ford of Sacramento finance team can help you weigh the pros and cons of each. Typically, choosing a lease means you’ll enjoy a lower monthly payment because you’re only responsible for part of the total cost of the vehicle. While you won’t own your car at the end of the lease term, as a lessee, you’ll enjoy a big perk: driving a brand new car every three or so years.
If you prefer to keep your cars for a longer-term, a traditional loan might be the best fit. Finance plans span anywhere from 12 months to five years, so your monthly payment is customizable based on the loan term. Also, the larger your down payment, the lower the monthly payment. These sliding scales give our finance team lots of flexibility to work with your budget. The best news is once the loan term is done, you’ll own your vehicle outright.
