Like Trooper, and ice cream cones in the sun, summer is here for a good time, not a long time. But that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze the most out of the summer months. What better way than with fun summer vehicles from Team Ford? So go on, read about some of our fun summer vehicles and try not to splurge on a new vehicle. After all, you only live once (and not to be dark, but according to the song it is not for a long time).
What better to kick off our fun summer vehicles list than with the grand-daddy of Fords: the Mustang. Turn heads cruising down Whyte Ave in the original pony car. Why not grab the convertible Mustang and really let your hair down — before the wind blows your hair into an unmanageable mess (we hear blowouts are coming back into style). Take advantage of the Mustang’s Electronic Line-Lock feature—only on the track of course *wink*—and execute the perfect burnout everytime. After all, what better way to engage in a little global warming and ensure longer summers. But in reality, the convertible Mustang utilizes Ford’s incredible EcoBoost engine meaning your carbon footprint has never been smaller.
Does the dry, post-winter pavement make you yearn for the uneven footing of a snowy road? Does fighting for every bit of traction you can get your hands on get you all hot under the collar? If so, then the Ford F-150 Raptor might be the fun summer vehicle for you. Tackle the rugged outdoor landscape, exploring like a young Christopher Columbus or, to a lesser extent, Magellan. There will be no campsite off limits or road untraveled, thanks to the Raptor’s Terrain Management System, capable of toggling between six different driving modes. If your idea of summer fun is more about pitching a tent than sleeping in a bed, the Ford Ranger is the fun summer vehicle for you.
Maybe you plan on spending your summer planting trees and travelling to all of Canada’s kombucha breweries — enter the Ford Focus Electric. Not only does Ford’s fully electric vehicle not need a drop of gas or oil, it also produces zero CO2 emissions. Meaning you can do the whole road trip thing and not leave a negative mark on the environment. Most provinces also provide a hefty rebate for anyone purchasing an electric vehicle, which means there will be more than enough left over for a new pair of Birkenstocks for you to wear while putting the pedal to the metal.
If you’re in the market for a new, fun summer vehicle, then make Team Ford your next stop. Even if you need a year round vehicle we’ve got a wide range perfect for every occasion. And considering that they’re built Ford tough, they’re around for a good time and a long time.
