Waldorf Ford can’t wait for the 2020 Ford Explorer to debut. The Explorer is the SUV model that started a movement when it was first imagined. Over the course of many years, this vehicle has been an icon of the automotive industry, constantly improving to keep modern drivers satisfied. Ford has completely revamped the new Explorer, from the interior to the body to this vehicle’s engine. The body of this model has been crafted with stunning and bold lines that enhance the aesthetic beauty of this Explorer. The grille of the Explorer has been redesigned to drop jaws as you drive by. The interior of the new Explorer will have more than enough cargo and passenger room to bring along whoever and whatever you need for your journey. The 2020 Ford Explorer will also feature a vast suite of technology that works to make this one of the most drivable SUV models in Ford history.

One of the most important issues to consider when it comes time to buy a vehicle is the performance that this model is capable of getting. When you’re in the driver’s seat of the 2020 Explorer, you can have peace of mind knowing you have the power that you need. This vehicle will be able to tow up to 5,000 lbs. when the Class III Trailer Tow Package is equipped. The hands-free foot-activated liftgate will grant you easy access into the storage area of your Explorer even if your hands are full.

The available Cargo Management System lets you configure the space in your Explorer so you can fit whatever you have to bring along. This system features rubber mats that can be easily washed and dividers that are simple to move. Check out the 50/50 fold-flat third and second-row seating to see the storage versatility that it provides drivers. Count on the 87 cubic feet of available space within the cabin of your Explorer to house whatever you need for your trip.

The 2020 Ford Explorer can also feature the available 12.3-inch digital instrument panel cluster with a productivity screen. If you choose to drive off of the lot behind the wheel of a 2020 Ford Explorer ST or a 2020 Ford Explorer Platinum, then keep in mind that this display screen will come to you standard. Drivers will be able to select custom settings so they can easily track all the information that is important to them. If you are a technology buff, then you are sure to feel comfortable in the cabin of this new Explorer. Make your way into Waldorf Ford so you can ask our staff about the 2020 Ford Explorer and when it will arrive. Once this vehicle arrives, you can come in for your test drive so you can experience this game-changing SUV for yourself.

Tips for Memorial Day Travel

Memorial Day Weekend is just around the corner, and many folks will be setting out to kick off the summer for the long weekend.

If you’ve traveled on this holiday in the past, you know that planning is key to a seamless, relaxing trip, and we’ve got just the list to keep you organized this year!

W Honda - November 16.jpg

  • Stay Connected – Download the latest travel apps for your phone before you hit the road—Spotify is a great channel for music, Waze will help with traffic, and Citymapper will be your best-bet for navigation!
  • Travel Late or Early – Instead of sitting in a huge mess of traffic this year, leave in the middle of the night, or early in the morning to avoid traffic jams—you’ll get to where you’re going much faster, and your passengers will thank you… especially if you have kids!
  • Pack Wisely – Make sure to bring temperature-appropriate clothing, shoes, and coats, especially if you’re heading north or to the mountains!
  • Have Your Car Serviced – Make sure that all of your fluid levels are topped off, your brakes, lights work properly, and that your car is up to date on all routine maintenance including oil changes and tires. Contact our Service Department to set up an appointment to have your car prepared for your road trip!
  • Have Travel Documents on Hand – Be sure to carry your Insurance Card, Roadside Assistance information, and any other vital information, in case of emergency.
  • Make All Stops at Once – If you have children, it might be challenging trying to travel with the constant stopping for bathroom breaks, food, and drinks, but, if you stop in a place where you can use the restroom, grab a sandwich and a bottle of water, all in one place, you’re guaranteed to save time instead of loading and unloading everyone into and out of the car at each place.

Get Your Ford in Tip-Top Shape this Spring

We’re nearing the beginning of Spring, and soon spring cleaning will be on everyone’s minds.

But spring cleaning isn’t only for your home or office.

LP Ford - March 29.jpg

Take the time this year to make sure you properly clean your car, and get it looking it’s best for spring and summer, with these few tips:

  • Organize the glove box, and consoles. Sort through all of the paperwork in your glove box, and remove old insurance cards, vehicle registrations, and any other objects that you no longer need to cart around every day. Create a folder for your current vehicle registration and insurance card, and neatly place the important documents back inside of your glove box, to ensure that everything is there and easy to find when you need it!
  • Clean the windows—inside and out.  Wintertime driving can be pretty trying on the exterior of your car. Clean the windows extra, both inside and outside, with a clean towel, to ensure your visibility is never compromised.
  • Remove clutter from your trunk. Sort through all of the clutter in your trunk, and take out anything you might not need this summer (snow brushes, ice melt, gloves, etc.) and store them away for next year. While your trunk is clean, verify that your spare tire is in perfect, working order, just in case!
  • Scrub the exterior.  Winter time can leave salt and road grime all over the exterior of your vehicle. Be sure to scrub off the salt, especially on the lower half of your vehicle, and make sure your paint stays looking brand new!

If you’re in need of service for your vehicle, to ensure it’s running its best before you venture out for your spring and adventures, contact our Service Department, today!
