Ford Showstoppers 2022

Ford Showstoppers 2022
Proudly working in partnership with Ford UK, Motorfinity looks at some of the iconic motoring company’s showstopping, head turners for 2022. 

As multi-award winners in the automotive industry, Ford have lined up a range of all-new models that cater for your needs. Offering the most forward-thinking technologies, they provide effortless driving experiences and the best safety features for today’s motorists. With almost 200 years of automobile history behind them, they have not forgotten their sense of heritage while creating new models made for today’s marketplace. As the drive towards an all-electric future accelerates, Ford’s first all-electric SUV is now available, and new concepts are on the way to the UK supporting the zero emissions initiative for even those customers with heritage vehicles.

Leading the Charge - Ford Mustang Mach-E

Ford’s first all-electric SUV, competitively priced and with a premium quality. In fact, we were so impressed when Ford provided us with a demonstrator that one of our management team is now eagerly awaiting delivery of theirs!

Ford have smashed it again with their all-new premium SUV reinventing the classic Ford Mustang to keep their strong sense of heritage still at the forefront. The iconic pony badge featured throughout the new model immediately catches the discerning eye. This all-electric model may have put on weight but there is a wonderful coupe feel to it with its instant response and quick acceleration. 18” alloy wheels come as standard, (you can upgrade to 19”), and there is a code system door release.

The claimed driving range pairs up with these performance factors with the AWD version achieving 273 miles per full charge whilst the RWD version can achieve a range of 379 miles. If you’re wondering how long it takes to charge, you can attain an 80% charge in just 45 minutes.

Incredibly practical, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has loads of storage: The boot, at full extension, has a continuous flat floor and there is extra storage under the bonnet. There is ample storage inside with plenty of sockets and big ‘door bins’.

The cabin itself is impressive with solid, interior build quality. The steering wheel is adjustable, there’s a huge central screen and a physical volume dial. The B & O sound bar is built into the dashboard and there is wireless charging throughout.

Endorsed by our management, you can always give us a call if you’d like to hear more. Our friendly, expert team are always ready to advise you.

Quietly Demanding My Attention - The Reinvention of the Ford Puma

Having always fancied a Ford Puma in its previous life, my ears pricked up on the announcement of its return. Some felt it was a very bold move to bring back the Puma name in the shape of a compact crossover, but it has paid off. It’s another Ford head turner with its funky good looks and cheeky ‘grin-shaped’ front grill. It certainly put a smile on my face given the chance to recently take the 1.0 litre 155ps Ecoboost Hybrid for a test drive.

It’s a pleasure to drive with innovative features to enhance the whole experience. There are selectable drive modes to deal with various terrains and the Ford Co-Pilot360 - an impressive set of assistance technologies - can even recognise speed signs and adjust the cruise control speed accordingly. Not just good-looking but extremely clever too!

There are so many smart features as Ford have pulled out all the stops to maintain their great reputation for constantly improving the performance and whole driving experience for its customers. The safety features are simply outstanding.

Scoring highly on the comfort factor, lumbar support front seats, heated seats, heated steering wheel, and fabulous all-round defrost system are huge pluses on these frosty mornings… In fact, with the FordPass App, you can prepare your car for a safe, frost-free journey all from the comfort of your sitting room!

Steering towards a greener future, its impressive fuel economy with lower CO2 emissions than other hybrids, makes it a great choice for me. I found the auto start-stop system very effective in traffic adding to the efficiency of the vehicle.

The beautifully sculpted exterior is balanced with thoughtful functionality. I loved the clever Megabox feature– 80litres of extra space under the conventional boot space with waterproof lining and drain plug. Neat!

All in all, great fun to drive, cleaner on the environment and kinder on running costs. 1.0l 155PS version is capable of 0-62 mph in just 8.7 secs. so, although it’s also put on weight, it’s still no slouch!

With great deals to be had through Motorfinity on all Ford Puma models, I recommend you give it your full attention if you’re in the market for a compact crossover - it quietly demands it!

Ford’s unbeatable design for those who love the Fiesta quality and drivability but want that little bit all-round extra. The Ford Focus just got even better. The striking new series is now available. Packed with next-gen connectivity, the Ford SYNC 4 system makes everything about this model even more effortless.

Ford F-100 Eluminator Concept Truck – The Future of Custom Vehicles

As Ford unveiled their F-100 Eluminator Concept in Las Vegas last November 2021, we wonder how long it will be before we see UK classic car owners utilizing the concept for their own heritage vehicles.

Based on a heritage 1978 F-100 pickup, the F-100 Eluminator concept features all-wheel drive via two powerful electric motors shared with the 2021 Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition. Two electric traction motors drive the front and rear wheels, packing a powerful 480 horsepower and 634 lb.-ft. of torque. Eluminator, the first e-crate motor from Ford Performance Parts, is based on the Mustang Mach-E GT’s traction motor.

The all-electric F-100 Eluminator concept, designed and created by Ford Performance, was built in collaboration with MLe Racecars and sits on a custom chassis by the Roadster Shop. It’s painted in Avalanche Gray with Cerakote Copper accents applied by Brand X Customs. The interior features a billet aluminium dash by JJR Fabrication and avocado-tanned leather upholstery by MDM Upholstery. It’s fitted with custom 19x10-inch billet aluminium three-piece wheels by Forgeline wrapped in Michelin® Latitude® Sport 275/45-19 high-performance tyres.

“Ford owners have personalized, customized and enhanced their vehicles since the beginning – from changing looks to bringing the power. Our F-100 Eluminator concept is a preview of how we’re supporting customers as they go all-electric and embrace zero-tailpipe emissions performance, even for our heritage vehicles.”
