2020 Lincoln Corsair To Debut This Spring

2020 Lincoln Corsair

Lincoln has officially announced it will be unveiling the 2020 Lincoln Corsair this spring, and this revamped compact crossover SUV model will be available to buy later this year. An article from Car and Driver states that this remarkable crossover SUV will be revealed at the 2019 New York Auto Show, taking the place of the Lincoln MKC.

Its exterior has a front-end styling that is similar to the elegant 2020 Lincoln Aviator, with swept-back headlights that flank a squared-off front grille that prominently features the iconic Lincoln logo. Teaser images suggest that the 2020 Lincoln Corsair will be a little bit longer than the Lincoln MKC.

The Jeep is Going Electric

electric Jeep

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.

Electric Jeep

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.

2019 Ford F-150 Best in Safety

F-150 Safety

“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.

F-150 Safety

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.

Jeep dealers in Delaware

In a bold move, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has announced that it will invest a staggering $4.5 billion in five plants in Michigan for one purpose: to engineer all-new Jeep SUV models. An article from Reuters states that FCA wants to compete in the extremely lucrative market of full-size three-row SUV models that has long been “dominated by rivals General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co.” The article also states that these five plants are projected to create an amazing 6,500 jobs in the state of Michigan.

The expert team at Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, your local Jeep dealer in Delaware, is very excited by this news because it means FCA will be adding its renowned elegance and master craftsmanship to the rugged performance of the Jeep brand.

According to Reuters, FCA Chief Executive Officer Mike Manley said that the company’s investments are focused on SUV models, an area he said is “forecasted to continue to grow.” He also said FCA is particularly interested in engineering their own three-row SV models, which he said is “a segment that I’ve been very interested in for some time.” FCA also announced that it will be turning a Detroit-based engine plant into an assembly plant. It plans to start construction on this $1.6 billion facility later this year, start production of an all-new three-row SUV model by the end of 2020, and follow that with a revamped version of the popular Grand Cherokee in early 2021. Another Detroit-based plant will receive a $900 million investment, becoming modernized and ready to engineer the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

“This opportunity is unlike anything we have seen in decades” – Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan

Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer Coming in 2021

Jeep dealers in Delaware

Your local Jeep dealer is thrilled by the news that Jeep will begin producing the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer in early 2021. Some are speculating that the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer may be crafted using the unibody platform of the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the body-on-frame platform of the ever-popular Ram. It has been confirmed that both of these vehicles will be available as plug-in hybrids, a fact that was cemented last year at the FCA’s capital markets day presentation and brought up once again during a recent announcement. We can’t wait for these models to debut so we can see how these vehicles will make a positive impact on the environment.

There is much speculation about the return of the Jeep Wagoneer and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, including what engine could possibly come underneath the hood of these SUV models. There was recently a document uncovered from transmission supplier ZF that hinted at the possibility of a Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk that will come fully outfitted with a supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. That would mean that 717 horsepower will be roaring from behind the grille of this SUV model. While it’s possible that this engine is being crafted and tested with no intention for mass production,  your local Jeep dealer in Delaware is hoping that we will be able to see this kind of power in action. Contact us today and get more updates about the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer and the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
