“The 2019 Ford Expedition has moved away from the ideas of the traditional full-size SUV, advancing the segment in the process.” – Kelley Blue Book
Kelley Blue Book recently released its “2019 Best Buy Winners” list, and the team at Preston Automotive Group is proud to say that the 2019 Ford Expedition is the winner for the Full-Size SUV category. KBB judges were thoroughly impressed by the ruggedness, performance, versatility, and comfort of this highly-popular SUV model, and we can’t blame them. The teams at Boulevard Ford of Georgetown, Boulevard Ford of Lewes, Denton Ford, Preston Ford, Pittsville Ford, and Rtown Ford are impressed by the 2019 Expedition and how it perfectly accommodates the needs of your passengers. It has a standard 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine that can deliver a jaw-dropping 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque whenever you need it. Since you deserve an SUV model that has impeccable hauling strength, the 2019 Ford Expedition has a shocking maximum towing capacity of 9,300 lbs. to easily handle whatever you need to pull. These performance statistics are just some of the many reasons why the 2019 Ford Expedition is one of the most sought-after SUV models in its class.
Judges at Kelley Blue Book were really impressed by how maneuverable and nimble the 2019 Ford Expedition is considering its size. This is achieved by a large amount of high-strength aluminum engineered within the body of this SUV model and the tough high-strength steel in its frame. According to KBB, these are “innovations that caused the underpinnings and sheet metal to weigh less.” These factors allow the 2019 Expedition to make its way around tight corners or unexpected twists in the road without any concern. This SUV is able to seat up to 8 people and still have ample room for your supplies. Overall, we at PAG fully agree with the KBB judges about how outstanding the 2019 Ford Expedition truly is. But don’t just take our word for it. Visit any of our Ford dealerships and test drive one today!

If you own a Ford F-150, then you are most likely taking it off the road in search of adventures in the great outdoors. That means your truck is sure to get dings, scrapes, and possibly even some damage to its exterior that you will need to get fixed. This can cause you some worry about how much the needed repairs will hurt your budget. At Preston Auto Body, we are glad to tell you that you do not have to be overly concerned. Why? It is because the aluminum body of the Ford F-150 is much more durable than it appears. While it is true that aluminum is a lightweight metal, Ford engineers only use military-grade and highly-resistant aluminum in the construction of Ford F-150s. This unique grade can better withstand the demands of the road and the unpredictable weather patterns of Mother Nature, all while remaining lightweight and easy to handle as you drive. It is also easier to repair and restore than conventional steel.
The team at Preston Auto Body doesn’t want you to limit your explorations just because you are worried that your Ford F-150 will get banged up, costing you time and a bundle of money. Contact us today to learn more about why Ford F-150 repairs are more affordable than you might think!

We are so excited about all of the innovations that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV are bringing to Jeep factories. This incredible investment was to move towards the goal of producing new hybrid and fully-electric Jeep vehicles. The electrification of the Jeep brand is sure to change the game when it comes to SUV models, and your local Jeep dealership can’t wait to be part of this revolution. At the recent Geneva Auto Show, Jeep debuted two brand new plug-in hybrid versions of both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Renegade. These are two of the most affordable Jeep models in the line-up, so it is great to see that Jeep is making conservation and environmentally-friendly vehicles an affordable goal for customers. These models are rumored to be available in early 2020, and your local Jeep dealership can’t wait for them to hit production lines.
These vehicles are expected to generate between 190 horsepower and 240 horsepower, sending power to your back wheels in order to get you going. When using strictly the battery, these models will be able to drive about 31 miles per charge. A plug-in hybrid version of the ever-popular Jeep Wrangler is predicted to debut sometime in mid-2020, a little later than the Renegade and the Compass. We can’t wait to see the PHEV hybrid option of this vehicle and the way it will boost both efficiency and drivability. Jeep’s entire lineup will eventually be electrified, bringing customers more options when it comes to affordable hybrid family vehicles. At Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we are excited for these hybrid and electric models to debut, and we can’t wait for our customers to test drive the vehicle that grabs their attention the most.

“F-150’s smart engineering, plus the innovative combination of its high-strength steel frame and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body continues to demonstrate enduring customer benefits – from repeated class-leading crash test performance to best-in-class towing and payload,” stated Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing.
The 2019 Ford F-150 had a successful session at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) pickup truck crash testing, scoring better than the half-ton competitors. This truck proudly scored the best rating possible of ‘Good’ on every measurable test. When you take a look at the truck’s competitors, you will find some other ‘Good’ scores, but no truck brings you the consistent and elite safety that you will find with the 2019 Ford F-150. The All-New Ram 1500 and the Nissan Titan both had ‘Good’ overall passenger and driver side overlap tests, while the Toyota Tundra earned the lowest possible scores: a “Marginal” rating during the overall driver side and a “Poor” rating during the passenger side overall test. Both the new Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra also received low marks during the passenger side structure portion of the crash test and the passenger side test.
There are a number of different ways that the Ford F-150 prepares to help with crash resilience. This truck is outfitted with the patented extruded aluminum roof cross member and special wheel blockers that work to deflect and absorb any impact that you may encounter. The Ram 1500 features a brand new splayed frame rail up front that serves the same purpose, but not with the same reliability that you will get from the Ford F-150. Not only will you get a lightweight yet heavy-duty and sturdy body on your F-150, but it also comes complete with a full suite of safety features that can boost both peace of mind and drivability. This truck comes with a 360-degree Camera featuring Split-View and a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®). These two features work together to keep you aware of everything that is happening around your vehicle at any time. If a collision does occur, the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ will help emergency personnel find your vehicle and keep other accidents from happening. Come to one of our Preston Motor Ford locations today, and test drive the top-rated Ford F-150 that piques your interest the most.
