For generations, the Ford F-150 has offered excellent power and towing capabilities. It has done so behind the strength of many different engine types. However, there is one engine option that the F-150 has never offered – diesel. Until now, that is.
After 70 years, Ford will finally be making a diesel version of the popular F-150. According to Ford, the redesigned 2018 F-150 diesel will be available with a new Power Stroke 3.0-liter V6. The F-150 will join the Ram 1500 as the only two trucks in their class to offer a diesel option. While power and fuel economy ratings for the diesel F-150 haven’t been announced, Ford expects the truck to be popular with customers who buy their trucks for towing.
Along with a diesel engine option, the 2018 F-150 will also be getting a styling update. With new grille, headlight and taillight designs that are similar to the ones on the latest F-Series Super Duty, the 2018 F-150 is sure to be an attention grabber.
The 2018 Ford F-150 is scheduled to go on sale this fall. Be sure to visit Bob Sight Ford when it does!
The popular Ford Fiesta is getting a brand-new look! The redesigned 2017 Fiesta was revealed by Ford, showcasing the new version in Cologne, Germany before an audience of over 4,000 onlookers. The new look adds a more modern, sporty flair to the Ford Fiesta, which has sold over 17 million units since it launched in the 70s.
The model shown in Germany will be built at the factory in Cologne, Ford representatives said, without mentioning when the vehicle will be making its U.S. debut.
Meanwhile, the 2017 Ford Fiesta with its new design will be available to European drivers as of next summer as part of an agreement with the German Works Council. The model will be available in four trim levels, called the Titanium, ST-Live, Vignale, and the Active, with the last being a crossover model. The 2017 Fiesta’s three-cylinder engine will be the first of its kind to offer cylinder deactivation for reduced emissions and better efficiency. Additionally, the interior will be more open and filled with modern tech.
The redesigned 2017 Fiesta will surely make its way stateside, thanks to the incredible popularity of the subcompact among millennial drivers. The addition of a crossover model to the lineup will also attract attention in the U.S., where the SUV and crossover segment is exploding in popularity for young families.

Ford volunteers recently rolled up their sleeves to make the world a little greener during Ford Accelerated Action Day. Every year, Ford takes some time off to give back to various communities around the country, specifically working on eco-friendly projects. In addition to volunteering, Ford also gave more than $55,000 in grants to help fund various projects.
Ford put together a massive list of projects for Accelerated Action Day, ranging from a Lake Erie cleanup to landscaping and education programs. Over 20 different non-profit organizations participated in the events, and more than 700 Ford employees volunteered. In total, 49 projects were completed.
“Protecting our natural resources is a critical part of creating a better world,” said Janet Lawson, director, Ford Volunteer Corps. “We’re building and planting in sustainable ways and the e-waste recycling drive goes a step further to keep potentially hazardous electronics out of landfills.”
Ford also put together a massive e-waste cleanup project, collecting more than 75,000 pounds of materials from old computers, cell phones, and printers. Ford is also putting together a Ford Global Caring Month in September, cleaning up the environment and starting a long month of events. In fact, more than 30,000 volunteers are set to participate in over 1,700 projects across six continents.

The Ford F-150 Is Officially the Safest Pickup Truck for 2016
Most pickup shoppers are looking for capabilities, performance, and efficiency. These things will all lead you to the 2016 Ford F-150. But, did you know it is also the safest pickup truck of 2016?
Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2016 F-150 a Top Safety Pick for both the SuperCrew and SuperCab body styles. The F-150 is the only full-size pickup to earn this recognition.
“From the moment our team set out to design and build the new F-150, we knew it had to be best-in-class,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, Global Product Development, and chief technical officer, in a statement. “This Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick is another example of Ford’s commitment to building the toughest, smartest, most capable and safest F-150 ever.”
To make the F-150 safer than ever, engineers works for thousands of hours to make it more durable and incorporated 31 safety-related innovations into the truck, including new structures that manage crash forces.
In addition to the recognition from the IIHS, the F-150 is also the only full-size truck to earn a five-star overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Ford has established a new subsidiary called Ford Smart Mobility LLC to focus on developing and investing in mobility services. Ford Smart Mobility will operate out of locations in Palo Alto, California, as well as Dearborn, Michigan, and will be headed by Jim Hackett, a member of the Ford Board of Directors.
The purpose of Ford Smart Mobility is to pursue opportunities to enter the mobility market and further Ford’s position and reputation as both an auto company and a mobility company. Ford hopes to be a leader in the mobility and autonomous vehicle markets.
Pulling from Ford’s existing body of mobility technologies, Ford Smart Mobility will work with data analytics teams from Ford Motor Company to develop mobility services that are ready to sell as well as invest in other companies’ mobility projects. Ford Smart Mobility will develop these new services independently from Ford and consult with other start-ups.
The executive chairman of Ford Motor Company, Bill Ford, says Ford Smart Mobility isn’t just about addressing today’s mobility issues, but rather “interpret[ing] what mobility will mean to future generations” and will “address the rapidly changing transportation challenges of an increasingly crowded world.”
We at Bob Sight Ford are excited to see what innovative breakthroughs Ford makes in mobility in the coming years.
Industry-First Gorilla Glass Launched on 2017 Ford GT Supercar
According to the automaker, the windshield—which was developed in partnership with Corning Inc.—is about 12 pounds (or 30%) lighter than traditional glass.
Despite being 25%-50% thinner than conventional glass panels, it’s also much tougher, and even scratch-resistant. It’ll be used on the Ford GT’s windshield, rear engine cover, and bulkhead. Eventually, Ford hopes to add the glass to mainstream vehicles like those you can find at Bob Sight Ford, which will help improve fuel economy, reduce break-ins, and mitigate damage in accidents.
Gorilla Glass has been used for years in smartphones, but the Ford GT features an industry-first three-layered hybrid version that has undergone four months of grueling rollover and impact tests. It won’t break when shot at close range with a golf ball-sized hail at 55 mph, unlike traditional glass.
While it’s less likely to break in an accident, rescue teams will still be able to get into a car equipped with Gorilla Glass if needed.
