The Automotive World Agrees: Owning a Ford Is Always the Right Choice

Pugmire Ford is full of men and women who see Ford as a brand without peer; this is no big secret. However, we are not the only members of the automotive industry who stand firmly behind the notion that driving home in one of these vehicles is the best decision you can make as a car buyer in Carrollton.

To solidify this assertion, and provide you with even more evidence that there has never been a better time to own a brand-new Ford, here is a list of some of the leading voices from across the automotive world that have decided to stand proudly behind the quality, performance, and reliability of this premier automaker:

  • AutoGuide
  • U.S. News and World Report

Harness the Power of a Super Duty or Transit the Next Time You Face down a Tough Job

ford super duty and transit vans for your commercial business

Making the most of your time spent on the clock or when tackling a "honey-do" list on your day off often requires the right equipment or tools. From this perspective, it makes plenty of sense to arm yourself with a vehicle that is also up to the task of tackling tough jobs. Thankfully, both the Super Duty members of the F-Series line of trucks and the various editions of the Transit van, including the Transit Connect, fit this billing in a major way.

On the Super Duty side of the conversation, these trucks know a thing or two living up to and surpassing substantial expectations. Whether you are drawn in by the best-in-class towing and torque exhibited by the Super Duty trucks found here at Pugmire Ford or the high-strength steel frames utilized by these pickups to reduce wear and tear that occurs via twisting and flexing, one thing is for sure: The F-Series family of trucks, including the various Super Duty models, is not intent to rest on its laurels as the best-selling line of pickups for 40 years running or fail to push the boundaries in terms of innovation.

Shifting gears toward the Transit, specifically, the Transit Connect, means putting your focus on a van that is ready to tackle any job (both commercial or private) you can imagine. Of course, when the Transit Connect offers up best-in-class maneuverability that keeps things moving in even the most congested of work areas and a spacious interior designed to keep out road noise and other distractions, embodying the flexibility needed to get the job done right the first time around is something that just comes as second nature for this van.

In other words, whether you zero in on a rugged and durable Super Duty or a Transit Connect that makes commercial deliveries and other jobs in the city a breeze, you can drive with confidence knowing your vehicle is ready to take on any task or issue that comes your way.
