If you have a teenager who is getting ready to drive their very first vehicle, you know that they want a vehicle they consider cool to drive; meanwhile, you are probably more concerned whether the vehicle is safe to drive. Fortunately, Ford offers the best of both worlds, as their lineup of vehicles are both safe and stylish. The following are Ford’s best car models for teenage drivers.

The Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta is an appealing choice for a teenager’s first vehicle due to its incredibly low price. It also comes with a lot of value packaged inside. Several trims of the Ford Fiesta come equipped with technologies like a rear view camera that you won’t find in the more expensive models of other brands.

The Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is one of the most stylish sedans on the road. Teenage drivers are sure to get a kick out of its exterior look. Meanwhile, parents will love the available advanced safety systems and the incredible fuel efficiency of the Ford Focus.

The Ford Fusion

Whether you buy a new edition or a used model, the Ford Fusion can offer a lot to brand new drivers. It has an extensive lineup of available engine choices, and an even more extensive collection of safety systems, making it the perfect choice for a first car.

Ford Focus Continues Reign as World’s Top Selling Car; Celebrates with a Makeover

The Ford Motor Company simply could not wait to get their hands on the new full year of Polk data from 2013. It’s something they—along with us here at Cambridge Classic Ford—have been waiting for the way kids wait for Christmas morning. And just like Christmas morning, the wait was totally worth it: Ford analyzed the data from IHS Automotive and came to the conclusion that, once again, the Ford Focus is the best-selling car across the globe.

Sales of the Focus actually rose 8.1% over 2012 sales, and Ford moved a total of 1,097,618 units of the compact passenger car over the 2013 calendar year. “It is remarkable to see Focus again lead the industry as the No. 1-selling vehicle nameplate on the planet,” said Jim Farley, an executive vice president for Ford.

And just how do you celebrate your victory cementing you as king of the hill for another year, despite fiercer competition than ever before? If you’re the Blue Oval, you design a whole new Focus, ready to dominate the world’s new car markets for another generation. “With the new car, we’ve raise the bar again, showcasing Ford’s commitment to continuous improvement—adding better technology for drivers and a sleeker, more modern exterior across the entire Focus family,” added Farley.

The next-generation Focus will also feature a new engine, a 1.0L EcoBoost offering designed to raise the car’s already outstanding fuel efficiency to an entirely new level. Stay tuned to our blog for more information about the Focus, both the current and future generations, very soon!

Ford Looks to Continue World Domination with Rejuvenated 2015 Focus

You’ve probably heard it said that if you’re not getting better, you’re automatically getting worse. Ford, the maker of the world’s best selling nameplate—the Ford Focus—obviously took that proverb to heart. The folks at the Blue Oval, not content to just stay the course, have managed to invent an even better Ford Focus for 2015.

The 2015 Focus sees improvements in every single aspect of its design, starting with the exterior. The car’s frame received some slight shifts, making it sleeker and more elegant, while also bringing the design closer to the rest of the Ford family. The interior has also been revamped, with improved storage and updated interior colors, appointments, and accents. Finally, the newest Ford Focus will feature a 1.0L EcoBoost, which once again raises the standard for fuel efficiency among small cars.

“We have taken the title of world’s best-selling nameplate to impressive new heights with the redesigned Focus,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford executive vice president and president of The Americas. “Its combination of compelling, modern design and the most high-tech interior in the class will appeal to contemporary consumers who desire a small car with very sophisticated features. What makes Focus so attractive to consumers today – being great to drive, delivering exceptional fuel economy and value, and offering leading-edge in-car technologies – is amplified with the new Focus.”

Chances are you already know how great the Ford Focus is—but you’ll still be amazed by just how much better Ford has made it for the 2015 model. So make sure to stop in to Cambridge Classic Ford later this year when the new Focus goes on sale.

Cambridge is Focused on the Ford Focus

Just in case you don’t already know, the Ford Motor Company recently revealed that the Focus was the best-selling nameplate in the world for the year 2012. Just over 1 million Focus small cars were sold. Most of these sales happened in China, with over a quarter of all Focus sales. The United States came in as the second largest sales market.

This success is continuing on in 2013. Not that this comes as a surprise to those of us at Cambridge Classic Ford. The 2.0L It-VCT direct-injection I-4 engine is just as powerful as it is fuel efficient. With an EPA estimated 26 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, you really do get a lot of bang for your buck.

With standard dual-stage front airbags, front-seat side-impact, and SafetyCanopy™ side-curtain airbags in the first and second row, this is one of the most safety oriented cars on the market. The combination of the latest technology, safety features, and fuel efficiency make the Ford Focus a great investment. Added standard details like the AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and Tire Pressure Monitoring System, give the driver the grip needed to stay on the road and in control.

Maybe you’re a parent or a grandparent looking for the perfect car to keep your kids and grandkids safe. Or maybe you’re just a regular Joe or Jane wanting to keep yourself and your friends safe while saving a few dollars on gas. The Focus has everything you need, no matter what your life situation is.

Come on down to Cambridge Classic Ford and check out the 2013 Ford Focus. We know you’ll love it just as much as the rest of the world does.
