Ford Commercial Trucks Dominate the NW Region

Ford F Series vs Dodge Ram
For the entire 2012 calendar year the Ford Commercial Truck lineup continues to be the undeniable leader in the Commercial Truck Market.  Based on industry figures through September of 2012 Ford captured 46.4 percent of industry sales.  Nowhere is this more evident that in the situation where Dodge Ram tries to take on the Ford F-Series Super Duty line of work trucks.  It is obvious that Ram has tried to develop a product that mirrors many of the key attributes of the Super Duty, but today's sophisticated truck customer also wants and needs a complete package of support services to keep vehicles "on-the-road" and generating revenue.  Ford has tackled this obstacle by offering plug ins for your laptop and space for a printer so that your truck can truly be mobile office.  Gresham Ford appreciates the need to stay on the road where you are generating income and can help facilitate your transition to a mobile office.

 Roadside assistance on every new Super Duty work truck is complimentary for 5 years or 60,000 miles.  This roadside assistance covers lock out service, running out of gas, changing a flat tire, all that fun stuff so now there is no need for AAA.  With over 600 Business Preferred Network Dealerships, Ford can offer customers a large and experienced dealer network.  With trained technicians and almost instant parts availability, Ford dealers can get vehicles back in service with minimal customer downtime.  Ford dealers understand the truck business and what it takes to support the commercial customer.  Ram fails to bring this hard-earned experience to the table.

For commercial customers, buying a Super Duty Pickup F-250/F-350/ F-450 is a big investment. The Ford Motor Company New Vehicle Limited Warranty and optional Ford Motor Company Extended Service Plans will help protect the value of their investment and reinforce their purchase decision.  Commercial customers choosing an F-Series Super Duty Pickup have access to qualified service technicians available beyond the standard 9-to-5 business day.
