Choose between 3 innovative engines in the new Ford Escape. Its standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine delivers an optimal balance of fuel efficiency and power for the average driver.

Pair it with the Class II Trailer Tow Package to get a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

It’s Not Too Late to Set One More New Year’s Resolution

The clock might have already struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, and almost everyone has a plan in place to improve their life, whether with fitness, organization, or even managing finances. But what about bettering your automobile? It’s not too late to set a resolution to keep your vehicle at it’s best this 2018.

W Ford - December.jpg

Your vehicle is most likely one of your most valued and relied on possessions, so, why not take every measure to ensure you’re keeping it in tip-top shape throughout the year?

Here are a few ideas for New Year’s Resolutions, specifically for your automobile:

  • Keep up with your routine maintenance. Your vehicle’s routine maintenance is one of the easiest things to overlook—whether it’s not having the time to have maintenance addressed, or the money. Although it’s easy to neglect, it’s also one of the most important aspects of your vehicle’s longevity and can help you save money and time, in the long run. Schedule an appointment with our Service Department to have your routine maintenance addressed. 
  • Keep your vehicle’s interior and exterior clean. Although it’s tough to maintain the cleanliness of your vehicle, especially in the colder months, you may feel better if you do. Having a clean vehicle may help reduce stress, especially if your vehicle tends to get cluttered easily.
  • Keep up with your neglected maintenance. Have a rattling noise that’s been driving you crazy for a while, but haven’t had it looked at yet? Bring your car in for Service, and let our experts help you pin-point the problem, before it becomes a bigger problem.
  • Schedule regular check-ups. Just like your physical health, it’s important to keep tabs on your vehicle’s health. Schedule regular appointments to have your car checked, to ensure everything is in working order.

 

Make Sure Your Vehicle is Ready for Winter at Waldorf Ford

Cold weather has set in here in Southern Maryland! Make sure your vehicle is ready to face the challenges that cold weather will throw at it, with these helpful tips.

W Chevy - October 23.jpg

  • Change Windshield Wiper Blades & Refill Wiper Fluid – Snow, salt, and sludge on the roadways can be problematic, especially if your windshield wiper blades are old or you’re lacking wiper fluid. Be sure both are ready to go this year.
  • Check Tire Pressure – Make sure all of your tires are inflated to the proper weight. Cooler temperatures often leave your tires slightly on the low side. Check your tires often to ensure they’re inflated properly all winter long.
  • Change Your Oil – With the hussle and bussle of the busy holiday season, often times, preventative maintenance may fall by the wayside. Change your oil ahead of time, to ensure you don’t neglect your vehicle’s health.
  • Replace Your Battery – Your battery might seem fine now, but, when was the last time it was replaced? Batteries should be replaced every couple of years. Make sure a cold winter morning doesn’t leave you stranded this year.
  • Check Your Antifreeze Mixture – Make sure your antifreeze mixture is up to par for the winter months to ensure your engine is operating at the correct temperature.

To make sure your car is ready for the winter months, contact the experts in our Service Department. Schedule your appointment, today.

Top Reasons to Test Drive the 2018 Ford EcoSport at Waldorf Ford

Not many people can say they own the debut model of a brand-new vehicle making its first appearance in the U.S. That’s what makes the all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport unique.

Ideal for young drivers and city-dwellers, the 2018 EcoSport is the smallest SUV produced by Ford Motor Company. While the new EcoSport is smaller than other Ford SUVs, it is agile enough to get around the city and offers enough interior space for comfortable road trips.

Starting under $20,000 and priced less than rivals like the Toyota CH-R, Subaru Crosstrek and the Chevy Trax, the 2018 EcoSport near Annapolis and Clinton, MD will soon be available for lease or purchase at Waldorf Ford near Alexandria, VA.

The base engine offers enough power to get around town and accelerates quickly enough to pass other drivers on the highways. For those wanting a bit more punch, the 4-cylinder option is also available.

Small SUV. Big Interior Space
