How to Extend the Life of Your Vehicle While You Wait for Your Pre-Order to Arrive

2022 Ford F-150 | Inverness, FL

Pre-ordering a new Ford truck or SUV is a great way to make sure you get everything you want from your next new vehicle. If you have a while to wait before your custom order arrives at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida, you can take a few steps to extend the life of your vehicle so that you’ll have reliable transportation until that wonderful day.

Drive smarter

The way you drive your vehicle can majorly affect its health. If you’re too aggressive on the gas and tend to brake suddenly rather than gradually, you’re adding unneeded wear that shortens the life of vehicle components. Being a smarter, more cautious driver can help save you money in the long run in more ways than one.

Service, service, service

There is no better way to extend the life of your vehicle than to make sure it’s up to date on maintenance. Following the manufacturer-recommended service schedule keeps your Ford vehicle in tip-top shape and minimizes the chances of breakdowns and bigger issues.

If you’re looking to upgrade to a new custom Ford, be sure to get an estimated trade-in value for your current ride. If you have questions about selling or trading, extending the life of your vehicle, or placing a pre-order, contact the experts at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida.

Ford F-150 Lightning Production Is Underway

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lineup | Inverness, FL

The future is now — production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is underway. In April, the first examples of the all-electric pickup truck rolled off the assembly line at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. And, thanks to huge investments from Ford, there’s plenty more where that came from.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a testament to the Blue Oval approach to innovation. With incredible power, capability, and range, the F-150 Lightning gives you the confidence you expect from a Built Ford Tough® truck. It also serves up incredible technology, including Ford Intelligent Backup Power and BlueCruise hands-free driving.

Because the F-150 Lightning is a first for Ford, it’s been a massive hit. So massive, in fact, that Ford has invested $950 million to ramp up annual F-150 Lightning production to 150,000 trucks by 2023. In the process, Ford has created 750 new jobs at Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, adding to its standing as America’s top employer of hourly autoworkers.[1]

More than 200,000 people have already reserved a Ford F-150 Lightning, which means it’s basically all sold out for 2022. Want to be one of the first to put down a refundable deposit when reservations reopen? You can sign up for updates at the Ford website and contact Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida. We’ll keep you in the loop when you have your next shot at reserving an all-electric F-150 Lightning.

Why Buy a Late Model Year Vehicle at Nick Nicholas Ford?

2021 Ford EcoSport | Inverness, FL

If you want a new Ford vehicle like the EcoSport or Edge but don’t necessarily need the newest model year, Nick Nicholas Ford has good news. We’ve got a great selection of late model year Ford vehicles that offer tons of benefits for drivers.


Get what you want for less


If there aren’t a lot of changes year over year, getting a new vehicle from the outgoing model year is a great way to save money. For example, one of the few upgrades from the 2021 Ford EcoSport to the 2022 model is standard Intelligent 4WD that’s now included. If you don’t necessarily need 4WD, getting a 2021 model with front-wheel drive can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.


All the benefits of a new vehicle


Whether it’s from the current model year or the previous one, a new vehicle at Nick Nicholas Ford is protected by warranty. A new Ford Edge is covered by a New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which spans the first three years or 36,000 miles whichever comes first. That coverage doesn’t start until you drive your new vehicle off the lot.


Above all else, you’re getting the quality, technology, and performance that’s made Ford an American icon for more than a century. Check out the selection of new 2021 model year Ford vehicles available at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida.

Introducing the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades

Are you the sort of person who craves excitement? Loves adventure? The 2022 Ford Bronco is right for you. This summer, Ford is adding a new model to the Bronco lineup that’s made for drivers in Inverness, Florida: the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades.  

The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades draws its name from the famed wetlands a few hundred miles south on Florida’s Turnpike. This version of the Bronco is engineered specifically to conquer those kinds of conditions thanks to features like the Sasquatch™ Package, which includes massive mud-terrain tires that help the Everglades ford up to 36.4 inches of water.

But maybe the coolest and most unique feature of the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is the Ford-developed and -engineered snorkel. Attached to the passenger-side A-pillar, the snorkel allows the Bronco to pull in air for the engine from higher up, helping it work efficiently in deep conditions.

The 2022 Bronco Everglades is made for adventure thanks to features like a ZEON 10-S WARN® winch, safari bar, and bash plates. But it’s also just nice for showing off around Inverness thanks to its exclusive Carbonized Gray Grille with black Bronco lettering, Desert Sand exterior color option, and graphics featuring the topography of the Everglades.

Ford launches the 2022 Bronco Everglades this summer, but it could be pretty hard to get a hold of. If you’re interested in getting one, contact the team at Nick Nicholas Ford and we’ll help. Or you can custom order a 2022 Ford Bronco that meets all your needs and have it delivered to our dealership. 

3 Must-Get Accessories for Your Ford Truck

3 Must-Get Accessories for Your Ford Truck | Inverness, FL

When you look at the Ford truck lineup — including big names like the all-new Maverick, fun-to-drive Ranger, and legendary F-150 and Super Duty — it’s clear that variety is something the Blue Oval knows well. That holds especially true when you check out all the cool accessories you can get for your truck at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida.

Tents

If you love the great outdoors, you probably already use your Ford truck a lot for getting out there and drinking it all in. With available tents by Yakima, you can even turn your truck into a proper base camp. The Yakima HD Skyrise tent is available for the Maverick, Ranger, F-150, and Super Duty and sleeps two in full comfort. 

Bed cargo net

Sure, your Ford truck can haul heavy-duty payload, but what about those times where you have a few smaller items to move and don’t want them to slide around in the bed? That’s where available cargo nets come in handy, offering a great solution for securing things like bags, vases, planters, and more.

All-weather floor liners

Your Ford Maverick, Ranger, F-150, or Super Duty is handsome inside and out. To make sure that it keeps feeling showroom-new, you can outfit it with heavy-duty all-weather floor liners. This keeps out mud, dirt, and water, letting you enjoy your adventures without worrying about your truck’s carpet.

There are plenty of great Ford truck accessories, and you can get them through Nick Nicholas Ford. Contact us today to learn more about the accessories available for your Ford pickup truck.

Red-Hot Ford Bronco, Maverick Win 2022 NACTOY Awards

2022 Ford Maverick | Inverness, FL

Though the competition was fierce, the result of this year’s North American Car, Truck, and Utility of the Year Awards were never in doubt at Nick Nicholas Ford. We’re not too surprised but still extremely proud that the 2022 Ford Bronco and Maverick both scooped up NACTOY Awards, solidifying their places as two of the top new vehicles today.

The 2022 Ford Bronco was named the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year while the Maverick earned North American Truck of the Year. Both honors came thanks to the opinions of 50 experts, who made up the jury for this year’s awards.

Those jurors were glowing in their love for both. Some said that the Maverick “redefines the truck market” and stands as “the best buy in the North American auto realm.” The 2022 Ford Bronco was ruled “a home run” that “delivers on the promise of its legendary name.”

Backing up the NACTOY wins for the Bronco and Maverick: massive love from drivers across America. In Inverness, Florida, and beyond, these two vehicles are mega-hits delivering joy and excitement. They prove that whether you want a capable off-road beast or a versatile, city-savvy truck, Ford has you covered.

Ford Honors 55 Years of Mustang Shelby with New GT500 Heritage Edition

Ford Honors 55 Years of Mustang Shelby with New GT500 Heritage Edition | Inverness, FL

While the Ford Mustang is an icon that stands on its own, the Shelby Mustang has its own legacy well worth touting. In 2022, Ford celebrates the 55-year anniversary of the classic Mustang Shelby GT500 with a new Heritage Edition.

Drawing on the 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500, the 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition features a unique Brittany Blue Exterior and two styles of Wimbledon White stripes. This cool exterior package will cost $2,140 MSRP[1] if you opt for vinyl over-the-top stripes or $12,140 MSRP[1] for the ultra-high-quality hand-painted stripes.

The 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition is how Ford pays tribute to the car that Carroll Shelby called “the first real car I’m really proud of.” It’s safe to say that he’d be proud of the new Mustang Shelby GT500 — a performance beast that delivers 760 horsepower and is the most powerful street-legal Ford ever built.

Also coming to the Mustang Shelby GT500 for 2022 is the new Code Orange exterior paint. This sharp, citrusy hue originally debuted on the new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor and will be offered on the upcoming Ford Bronco Raptor.

The 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition is available to pre-order now and will arrive in the spring of 2022. Interested in learning more? Contact the Ford fanatics at Nick Nicholas Ford in Inverness, Florida.
