The 2017 Ford Raptor is Revealed

2017 Ford Raptor for sale at Gresham Ford

Gresham Ford is super excited that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has finally been revealed and we want to share the Key F-150 Raptor Features so you can be just as excited as we are.  
Choice and versatility — the all-new F-150 Raptor adds room for passengers and gear with the addition of a SuperCrew configuration along with the previously announced SuperCab.  Both options are available for order from Gresham Ford.  
Toughest — the combination of all-new purpose-built high-strength steel frame with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body helps save more than 500 lbs. of weight. The use of advanced materials is expected to improve the power-to-weight ratio for improved off-road agility.  
Smartest — an all-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has more horsepower and torque than the current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434 lb.-ft.  6.2-liter V8.  That's right even more power in now available in the all new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.  
Most capable — redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel, BF Goodrich® 35-inch all-terrain T/A KO2 tires and all-new Terrain Management System help Raptor handle the toughest terrain even in Oregon.  
Exterior — inspired by the Ford Performance heritage in off-road racing. The new Raptor exterior has chiseled looks that are reminiscent of those found in Trophy Trucks — the most powerful and fastest off-road trucks.  It just looks super cool.  
Interior — includes three color material levels; steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters; and auxiliary switches that are mounted out of the driver’s way in the roof of the cab — similar to a fighter plane — to control aftermarket equipment such as accessory lights.  Because everyone wants to drive a fighter plane.  Admit it, you do want that.  
All-new four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case — manages power distribution between the front and rear wheels; combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four-wheel drive.  This is one example where technology makes your experience night and day better than before.  There will be no regressing from this technology.  
Terrain Management System — enables the driver to select six preset modes to optimize driving dynamics to environmental conditions like sand, snow, mud, etc.  

Raptor is the Toughest Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
The combination of an all-new purpose-built high-strength steel frame with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body helps save more than 500 lbs. of weight. The use of advanced materials is expected to improve the power-to-weight ratio by at least 25% for improved off-road agility.  You didn't think it was possible but this Raptor is even better with heightened technology improved on previous models.  The purpose-built frame in Raptor is the strongest in the F-150 lineup and features more high-strength steel than the outgoing Raptor
Raptor is six inches wider than the standard F-150 to help stability when driving off road
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is Smartest Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
An all-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has more horsepower and torque than the current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434 lb.-ft.  6.2-liter V8.  Today's first-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine proved its mettle by racing in the original F-150 EcoBoost Torture Test in the 2010 Baja 1000, as well as in repeated wins in other off-road race series Raptor includes an all-new 10-speed transmission.  The new Raptor torque-on-demand transfer case offers improved power transfer for better traction over a greater variety of terrain at both low and high speeds on-road and off-road.  

The Terrain Management System features the following modes to optimize driving dynamics to road conditions:
Normal Mode: everyday driving
Street Mode: higher performance, on-road driving
Weather Mode: for rain, snow or ice
Mud and Sand Mode: muddy and sandy terrain
Baja Mode: high-speed desert running
Rock Mode: low-speed rock crawling
Raptor includes many calibration changes to its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control system for optimal performance.  Advanced LED lighting and the available 360 degree camera technology contribute to improved visibility when driving on trails or on streets, day or night.  
The Most Capable Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
An available TORSEN® front differential increases off-road capability. This system increases grip significantly for the front end of the truck and allows it to pull itself over obstacles and up steep grades, even when traction is split between the front tires
The new standard FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass technology works to dampen and stiffen suspension travel over rough terrain to help prevent the truck from bottoming out.  Redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox have increased from 2.5 inches to 3 inches in diameter to help improve performance. They feature more suspension travel than the current Raptor’s 11.2 inches at the front and 12 inches at the rear
BF Goodrich® 35-inch all-terrain T/A KO2 tires and all-new Terrain Management System help Raptor handle the toughest terrain.  Redesigned class-exclusive(1) beadlock-capable wheels allow for lower tire pressures, helping maximize traction when off-road.
F-150 Raptor will be available in a 133-inch SuperCab or 145-inch SuperCrew configuration
Raptor’s exterior design is inspired by the Ford Performance heritage in off-road racing that includes Best in the Desert, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the Baja 1000.  Along with its new appearance, Raptor still has specific exterior styling your customers have come to expect including: wheel moldings, functional heat extractors on the power dome hood and fenders, blacked-out headlamp appearance, distinctive grille with curved Ford logo crossbar and integrated marker lamps, redesigned rear bumper highlights the true dual exhaust.  Again it just looks super cool.

The Quick Lane at Gresham Ford provides a Lifetime Brake Pad Guarantee

The days of simple, hydraulic ­based braking systems are over. Today’s complex brake systems require knowledge and expertise not only in hydraulics, but in electronics and computer controls as well. Service technicians must be skilled in these areas in order to diagnose and service today’s brake systems, and to be prepared for servicing the brake systems of tomorrow. Another important consideration are the brake pads and brake fluid used in the brake replacement. Most experienced automotive technicians follow a standard procedure, sometimes without even being aware of it, because their years of experience have taught them that by following a standard procedure they are less likely to miss a small, easy ­to­ fix item that may be responsible for a malfunction. Few things are more aggravating than replacing an expensive, hard ­to ­service component, only to find out that it did not correct the concern. Then, upon further investigation, finding out the real cause was a broken wire that would have been seen had a thorough visual inspection been performed. Focusing on the utilization of systematic diagnostic procedures for identifying and correcting ABS concerns sets the Quick Lane at Gresham Ford apart from other local auto repair facilities because it's fixed right the first time.

Crash Test Ratings of the 2016 Ford Escape

2016 Ford Escape for Sale at Gresham Ford
The Ford Escape is a very safe family SUV that features adaptable airbag deployment that uses various sensors throughout the vehicle to measure a variety of inputs, including the size of the passengers and how fast the vehicle is traveling to determine how the airbags will deploy.  So the airbag will go off with much less force if your 98lb grandma is in the front seat as opposed to 300lb Uncle Carl.  The Safety Canopy System pioneered by Ford engineers combines with side curtain airbags and a rollover sensor to help provide protection for outboard passengers during a side impact collision.  The 2016 Ford Escape is the most robust unibody construction of all the Ford Escapes for sale.  Nearly one third of the steel used in the body of the new Escape is composed of advanced high strength steel that adds safety while cutting weight and improving efficiency.  

Crash Test Ratings for the 2016 Ford Escape

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) provides consumers with crash test ratings to help consumers make more educated decisions and vehicle purchases.  Frontal and side crash test ratings are located in the Government Safety Ratings portion of all 2016 vehicle window stickers.  

Crash Test Ratings Listed on the Window Sticker

If you are like many consumers, you are probably asking, "How does NHTSA determine crash test ratings?"  In all scenarios, the tests are designed to reproduce the most common real life accidents.  Instruments measure the force of the impact and how it transfers to the vehicle's passengers and then compares similar vehicles' test results. 

The frontal crash test simulates a head on collision between two similar vehicles, each moving at 35 mph.  The test includes dummies to represent an average size male in the driver's seat and a small female in the front passenger seat.    

The side crash test rating represents an intersection type collision by having a 3,015 pound barrier that replicates the characteristics of the front end of a vehicle, moving at 38.5 mph into a standing vehicle.  The test includes dummies to represent an average size male in the drivers seat and a small female in the driver's side second row seating position.  A pole test was designed to simulate the broadside impact of a vehicle into a tree or telephone pole at 20 mph.  The test includes a dummy to represent a small female in the driver's seat.  

Rollover ratings are determined by mathematical formulas that consider the vehicle's geometric properties and the number of crash avoidance technologies are used to determine the likelihood of a rollover in certain conditions.  More information about the NHTSA and their ratings can be found at   

Crash Test Ratings for the 2016 Ford Escape
What do the stars mean?

Frontal Crash and side impact tests
5 stars = injury risk for the vehicle is much less than average
4 stars = injury risk for the vehicle is less than average to average
3 stars = injury risk for the vehicle is average to greater than average

Rollover Tests
4 stars = Rollover risk for the vehicle is less than average to average.

Used 2013 Ford Fiesta for Sale in Gresham, Oregon at Gresham Ford

This 2013 Ford Fiesta offers 4 doors in the sedan SE trim package.  The expressive vibrant design refined the expectations of small car customers.  Delivering convenience and connectivity not found in other small cars with good MPG is what Fiesta is known for in Gresham, Oregon.  The Ford Fiesta was the first minicar to earn the IIHS Safety Pick aware since the IIHS added a roof strength requirement rating.  

The 1.6L Ti-VCT I-4 Engine produces 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft. of torque.  The engine block is high-pressure die-case aluminum for strength and light weight properties.  While the aluminum cylinder head and engine block help reduce vehicle weight to help improve fuel efficiency.  With a 11.0:1 compression ratio, you'll be impressed with the "zippy" quality this compact commuter car has to offer.  

What's more important in a commuter car than MPG? Nothing, that's what.  This 2013 Ford Fiesta comes standard with a Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shutoff (ADFSO) technology that helps to maximize fuel efficiency by temporarily interrupting fuel delivery and consumption when the vehicle normally slows down while maintaining normal engine operation.  The system is automatic and requires no interaction from the driver.  That's right it's automatically making your MPG as good as possible.  

The Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) allows the camshafts to operate both intake and exhaust valves at different times in the combustion cycle, based on engine speed and load.  These adjustments to the camshaft timing provide enhanced performance and fuel economy.  It's like the engineers at Ford know how badly you hate paying for gas and made the Ford Fiesta with excellent efficiency just for you!  You don't have to compromise power or MPG either.  The Ti-VCT also provides exceptional power when accelerating so you can pass with no anxiety.
