Roush Built A Military-Only Mustang For Military Serving Abroad - 07/15/2015
NORWALK, OH - When you are putting your life on the line to protect your country, both Roush and Ford Motor Company feel that you deserve a "special" type of Mustang. That's why Roush built a Military-Only Mustang for military serving abroad, and it is PRETTY IMPRESSIVE! To those active men and women serving in the U.S military, it may seem like they are a million miles from home, but Roush is hoping that bringing over one of the most historical pieces of Americana, the muscle car, to them will make it feel a little bit more like home.
This little taste of home is the special edition Ford Mustang, the 2015 Roush "Warrior" (shown above). This limited production pony car is the result of Roush's partnership with Military AutoSource, and will only be available to those men and women serving overseas. And these aren't your regular, everyday Mustangs either!
The charged up 2015 Roush Warrior Mustang comes equipped as either the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost or a 5.0-liter V8 GT, with the former EcoBoost version adding entirely new gauges, an upsized rear sway bar, a larger radiator, heavy-duty front springs, larger brake rotors and a limited-slip rear axle. And that's just for the EcoBoost! If military members opt for the GT, Roush adds to an already impressive formula a pair of Brembo six-piston front brake calipers, strut and chassis bracing, a Torsen limited slip-rear axle, and most importantly a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger.
The exterior options of the Roush Warrior Mustangs roll in wearing either Black or Race Red paint, and come in various body model upgrades. Pricing for these military-only muscle cars are said to start around $41,000 for the EcoBoost package and $57,000 for the supercharged GT. Also, given that these Mustangs will only be shipped overseas to serving military members, they will definitely be quite a rare vehicle.
Since Roush built a military-only Mustang for Military serving abroad it got us thinking: If you could build your dream Mustang, what would it look like? Leave some ideas in the comment section below! Want to get behind the wheel of one of the 2015 Mustangs we have at Don Tester? Feel free to stop by your Shelby Area Ford Dealership today test drive a new or used model! Don Tester Ford Lincoln is located at 2800 Route 250 South Norwalk, Ohio 44857.

The 2017 F-150 Ford Raptor Has Just Been Announced As 25% Faster Than Its Previous Model - 07/11/2015
NORWALK, OH - Thanks to a series of grueling tests through the American Southwest, the 2017 F-150 Ford Raptor has just been announced as 25% faster than its previous model. The new 2017 model is Ford Motor Company's toughest, smartest, most capable off-road truck ever created, and the testing recently done was a tough 1,000-mile long experience for the new truck.
This 1,000-mile test trail was set up to parallel the infamous Baja race course in Mexico, and the route featured multiple geographical obstacles including a tabletop jump at the end of each lap that consisted of a steep ramp up to a two-foot plateau , then a step off back to level ground. The course was purposefully difficult and the F-150 Raptor had to drive over a wide range of surfaces that included fast sandy washes, deep-rutted silt beds, steep climbs in deep sand and slow, meticulous crawls through tight trenches.
Even though the 2017 F-150 Ford raptor has just been announced as 25% faster than its previous model, these tests pushed the new Raptor harder in a few days than it will be pushed over the lifetime of a typical vehicle. This is the case of all Built Ford Tough trucks, and thus ensures that no matter where you take it, the 2015 F-150 Raptor is ready for whatever you encounter!
The 2017 F-150 Raptor won't make its way to dealers for a while, however feel free to stop by your Shelby Area Ford Dealership today and and test drive and of our current new or used truck models! Don Tester Ford Lincoln is located at 2800 Route 250 South Norwalk, Ohio 44857. As a family owned and operated business since 1972, we continue to strive to provide customers with top quality service!
Drowsy Driver– The Forgotten Killer - 07/10/2015
NORWALK, OH - In the current days of distracting technologies, many people seem to forget that there is also a different type of dangerous driver out there on the roads today. Let us introduce you to the Drowsy Driver– the forgotten killer! A tired or drowsy driver is a very dangerous person to share the road with. In fact, driving drowsy can cause slow reaction time, decrease awareness, impair judgement and increase aggressiveness. How familiar does that sound? Experts actually speak about those same warning signs in regards to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Just like driving under the influence of a dangerous substance, driving while tired or drowsy causes mistakes that can kill or seriously injure you or anyone else you share the road with.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, drowsiness or fatigue is the principal cause of up to 100,000 police-reported passenger vehicle crashes every year, killing at least 1,500 individuals and injuring 71,000. However, many fatigue related incidents go unreported. Now, many people read those statistics and say that most of those incidents must be from semi-truck drivers, however, less than 1 percent of all sleep-related incidents and crashes involve truck drivers because they are prohibited by federal regulation from driving more than 10 hours in a period.
The major factors of drowsy driving are time, age and work schedules. A 2006 NHTSA study showed that 20 percent of crashes and 12 percent of near crashes were caused by drowsy drivers. Surprisingly however, the study also showed that the majority of crashes and near crashes occurred during daytime hours, rather than at night when roads are less crowded. Young adults and teens are also more likely to get behind the wheel when tired, which a recent AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety study found that 1-in-7 licensed drivers ages 16-24 admitted to having dozed off at least once while driving in the past year.
Many car companies are starting to integrate more fatigue-driving-fighting technology into their vehicles, including Ford Motor Company, which created the innovative Lane Keeping System. This system is offered on most 2014+ year models.
What Scares Millennials The Most While Driving - 07/02/2015
- Other motorists driving dangerously (88 percent)
- Public speaking (75 percent)
- Death (74 percent)
- Spiders (69 percent)
- Snakes (69 percent)

Ford Has Released Its Environmental Goals For 2015 To The Public - 06/17/2015
NOWALK, Ohio - Today, Ford Motor Co. released its 16th Annual Sustainability Report which highlights its exceptional achievement of several environmental goals. These achievements include Ford becoming landfill-free in all of its Mexico manufacturing facilities, the use of industry-exclusive REPREVE fiber in the all-new 2015 Ford F-150, which will divert more than 5 million plastic bottles from landfills, and– guided by the Ford Smart Mobility plan– the auto company's global mobility experiments are currently testing new ideas to address rising transportation challenges.
Ford has always strived toward being on the leading edge of changing the way the world moves, while also keeping a wary eye on the effect it has on the environment. Highlighting these trends is important and that's why Ford has released its environmental goals for 2015 to the public. Leading the report is Ford's achievement in reducing global waste-to-landfill by announcing that the Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant attained zero waste-to-landfill status earlier in 2015, which gives the automotive company the distinction of now being 100% landfill free in all of its Mexican manufacturing plants and facilities. Due to this, Ford is now diverting 1.5 million pounds of landfill waste this year and every year moving forward.
Ford has released its environmental goals for 2015 to the public, and Andy Hobbs, director of Ford Environmental Quality Office stated, "Ford is proud that all of its manufacturing facilities in Mexico are sending zero waste to landfills." This is a project the auto company has been working on for a while, producing a 40% decrease of vehicle waste-to-landfill from 2007 to 2011, and seeks to have the same result from 2011 to 2016.
It is truly exciting to represent an automotive company that cares about the environment and the impact it has. If you would like to talk more about the ways Ford Motor Co. is making the planet a better place to live, feel free to stop by and chat! We would love to give you a test drive in any of our fuel efficient, eco friendly Ford models! Don Tester Ford Lincoln is located at 2800 Route 250 South Norwalk, Ohio 44857.

The New Lincoln Continental Could Be Made In Michigan - 06/11/2015
There has been no "official" word from Ford Motor Co. however, industry insiders believe the new Continental will be built in Flat Rock, Mich., alongside the Ford Fusion. This is because the Continental will be built on an extended version of the Fusion platform, whereas the MKS shares its underpinnings with the Taurus. The Flat Rock, Mich. plant, formerly run as a Mazda plant, is one of the few Ford plants in the United States with the ground capacity to build the new Lincoln model. It also builds the Mustang as well.
Currently, the Flat Rock plant is scheduled for four consecutive weeks, from June 15 to July 13, of summer shutdown which would be the PERFECT time to update the machinery inside to be ready for the Lincoln Continental. This four-week shutdown is twice as long as the usual summer shutdown, with five Ford plants only scheduled for a one-week shutdown due to a high demand for the F-150 and Ford Explorer.
The new Lincoln Continental could be made in Michigan, which is exciting news to hear as Ford Motor Co. is investing A LOT of money into its many plants across the country, especially stateside. We will definitely keep you updated on any new information involving the new Lincoln model, including when it will roll into dealerships (hopefully soon).
If you would like any information on our current new and used Lincoln models, give us a call or stop by! Don Tester Ford Lincoln is located at 2800 Route 250 South Norwalk, Ohio 44857.
