If you’ve found that you’re not quite happy with your vehicle’s fuel economy performance, check out the tips we’ve got for you below! As some of you may already know, your car’s mileage isn’t entirely dependent on its EPA-estimated ratings. In fact, it has more to do with the way you drive than anything else!
For example, if you avoid speeding whenever driving at above 50 mph, you can potentially improve your fuel efficiency by 25 percent. Couple that with softer, earlier braking and smoother acceleration and you can increase your mpg ratings by more than 50 percent! That’s an improvement that normally takes years of engineering innovation to achieve.
If driving differently isn’t of interest to you, there are other ways. Turning off the AC at lower speeds and closing the windows at higher speeds can also help improve your mileage by about 15 percent. Cleaning the exterior, removing unnecessary weight, and doing the regular oil and tire maintenance also have an impact.
What are you doing this Saturday, March 1? How will you like to help raise money for Los Reyes Elementary School? All you have to do is drive a brand new Ford!
This weekend, Jennings Anderson Ford will present Drive 4 UR Community to benefit the local school at their Spring Carnival. From 10am-3:30pm, licensed drivers over 18 can take a new Ford for a test drive and complete a short survey. Once both steps are completed, Ford will donate $20 per driver to Los Reyes Elementary School, up to $6,000!
Helotes is home to Los Reyes Elementary School, and the school has existed in some incarnation since 1871. We’re proud to support our local schools, and we hope you’ll stick around and enjoy the rest of the carnival!
The school is located at 10785 Triana Pkwy, Helotes, TX 78023. Will we see you at Drive 4 UR Community?
The new 2015 Ford Expedition has made its first public debut at the 2014 Dallas/Fort Worth Auto Show. On the exterior, the Expedition is more or less the same car—after all, why fix what isn’t broken? Other than a switch to a three-bar setup instead of four bars for the front grille, the big American SUV looks as good as ever.
On the other hand, the interior has received ample changes. Under the hood, the Expedition now sports a lighter and turbocharged 3.6-liter EcoBoost V6, delivering upward of 370 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. It’s more powerful than the V8 in the current model and a lot easier on your wallet, too.
Ford has also amped up the Expedition’s technology. Blind-spot alert, cross-traffic alert, push-button start, and a rearview camera are now all part of a new suite of convenience and safety features, many of which consumers will be able to navigate using the two new 4.2-inch LCD screens between the central speedometer.
Did you love Tonka trucks as a child? Maybe you passed that love on to your own children. Imagine the look on their faces if they saw you driving into the driveway in a Ford Tonka F-150.
This truck was on display at the Chicago Auto Show and gathered lots of attention. But, with its bright yellow paint job, who could miss it?
The best part about this truck is that it is headed for production. It is the product of a collaboration between Ford and Tuscany Motor Co.
In addition to the Tonka yellow paint job, the truck features Tonka logos both inside and out and has a six-inch Pro-Comp lift and chunky new bumpers, step bars, fender vents, and a large ram-air hood. All together making this one heck of a big truck.
There is one downside, however. Tuscany will only be making 500 of these bad boys and they are expected to go fast. In fact, each dealership is limited to only one!
So, if you want to make your childhood dreams come true, give us a call at Jennings Anderson Ford and find out how to get a hold of the Ford Tonka F-150.

Have you seen our coverage of the big reveal of the 2015 Ford F-150 at the Detroit Auto Show? You should check it out!
After the truck was shown to the world, we were excited about the new features available, including the aluminum body. The lighter metal used in the truck means that the engine has less weight to carry, and can then carry more in a load or get better fuel economy. It’s a pretty great innovation from the Ford Truck design studio!
After the announcement, though, we know there were some worries about repairs to the metal. Aluminum is definitely different than steel, so it needs different tools and training to repair it in a body shop. Ford has announced a program to help reimburse dealers for some of their costs to upgrade their body shops and teach the staff how to handle the thinner metal.
This means that when the 2015 Ford F-150 appears in our showroom, the staff will be ready to help repair your truck, should you get a dent or other damage. What do you think of the new Ford truck?
Last week was a big one for Ford. They unveiled the new 2015 Ford F-150 to the world, and put on a great display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. And the best part? They shared it with some of their most devoted fans!
Ford fans have a place to call home on Ford Social. It’s where they can share stories about their Ford and read stories about the latest and greatest straight from the automaker. You can also visit We Own Work to see truck stories shared by fans and workers who rely on their vehicles every day.
Ford selected six of their fans, who had both contributed on Ford Social and We Own Work, and decided to fly them to Detroit for the auto show! When they first received notification, they thought it was a scam!
Happily, it was not!
The lucky fans were front and center at the big reveal of the 2015 Ford F-150. Later, they attended different breakout sessions about the future of Ford. There was even a chance to ask Alan Mulally their biggest questions about the Ford Motor Company and test drive the new Ford line up.
At the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Ford unveiled the next generation of the Ford F-series. The Ford F-Series has been America’s best-selling vehicle since 1982, and aims to continue the streak with this newest truck. But what all has changed?
Aluminum body and bed: To make the truck lighter, and therefore allowing a higher towing capacity and fuel savings. The aluminum alloy is military grade, and resists bumps and dings better than the previous steel. The frame of the truck itself is still steel, and the steel has been upgraded to improve vehicle handling.
New EcoBoost engine: a 2.7L V-6 EcoBoost engine will add to the fuel savings in the 2015 model
13 colors to choose from: White Platinum, Ingot Silver, Oxford White, Bronze Fire, Guard (a military grayish green), Magnetic, Tuxedo Black, Blue Flame, Caribou, Race Red, Green Gem, Ruby Red, and Blue Jeans.
Automatic Tailgate: You’ll be able to open your truck’s tailgate with your key fob! Closing it will still be your job, but just think of hitting that simple button as you walk towards your truck with a big loadi n your arms!
What are you looking forward to most in the new F-150? Let us know in the comments, and check out the complete story on Jalopnik’s Truck Yeah!
Your Ford is a pretty amazing machine. When it’s equipped with Ford SYNC, you can make calls, send messages, read texts, and play music all from your supported device! These functions are available hands-free, so you can pay attention to the road and its hazards.
What if we told you that it was about to get even better?
With Ford SYNC AppLink, certain apps can be accessed on your phone through SYNC. Ford announced a partnership with Domino’s Pizza this week at the 2014 CES in Las Vegas!

It’s perfect for when you’re on your way home after a long day and wand your pizza hot right when you walk in the door. Check out the video demonstration below!
