We have an effective way to warm up your car this winter!

This year, winter in Ohio has been relatively mild, but you never know when the weather will change. But, even with the minimal snow fall, we have still had some pretty cold temperatures, which can make your commute pretty frosty. If you’re looking for the most effective way to warm up your car without idling, try these steps as suggested by the professionals at A/C Pro.

  1. Start your car, but do not turn on the heater. You should actually turn it off so that no air is blowing on you. Nobody likes being blasted in the face with ice cold air.
  2. Make sure the recycled air switch is turned on, so once you do turn on the air, it will warm up faster.
  3. Drive for a few minutes and then test the air to see if it is warming up.
  4. Once you feel warm air, change the air path so that is only coming out near your feet. Since heat rises, this will help warm up your whole car.
  5. When the air has reached a comfortable temperature, turn off the recycled air feature so your windows don’t get foggy.

Do you use this method to warm up your car quickly? Try it out and let us at Cambridge Classic Ford of Cambridge, OH know how it works for you.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is ready to take on any terrain.

If you want to tackle the toughest terrain in the world, you choose the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. This hardcore off-road beast is currently participating for the 2016 Best in the Desert off-road racing series.

“The all-new Raptor has the DNA of a Baja race truck, with a purpose-built engine, chassis and suspension that enables it to travel fast over challenging desert landscapes or crawl over rocky terrain,” said Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer, Ford Performance, in a statement.

This race-ready truck is powered by a 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a torque-on-demand transfer case. According to Greg Foutz, Ford’s truck builder and primary race truck driver, the race-ready Raptor is “the most stock truck” he has ever raced.

Some of the modifications to the truck include race-optimized three-inch-diameter external-bypass front and rear Fox Racing Shox, race-optimized front and rear springs for additional ground clearance, custom-fabricated roll cage, and MasterCraft seats with five-point harness safety belts.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to buy this version, but a still incredibly capable production version will be ready late this year. Learn more at Cambridge Classic Ford of Cambridge, OH.
