Mazda Named Most Fuel-Efficient Automaker for the Fourth Year In A Row

November 10th, 2016


Borgman Mazda in Grand Rapids is pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row, Mazda has been named the most fuel-efficient automaker in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency. Mazda owes this honor to their own SKYACTIV Technology, which allows drivers spend less time at the pump and more time having fun in their spirited Mazda vehicle.

In an article published on InsideMazda, you can read more about SKYACTIV Technology and how Mazda ensures that they don’t sacrifice driving pleasure for the sake of efficiency, and yet manage to excel at both.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noted in its most recent Light Duty Fuel Economy Trends report that Mazda Motor Corporation is the most fuel-efficient auto manufacturer in the U.S. With the highest fleet-wide adjusted fuel economy performance of 29.6 miles per gallon (MPG), Mazda led the chart for model year (MY) 2015.

For the fourth consecutive year, Mazda has achieved the highest fuel-efficiency of any mainstream automotive manufacturer in the industry, without offering a hybrid or electric vehicle. Mazda’s unique SKYACTIV Technology has made this level of efficiency possible. SKYACTIV is a suite of component and engineering technologies intended to cut vehicle weight, improve engine efficiency and bolster vehicle dynamics for outstanding environmental and safety performance without sacrificing the brand’s renowned driving pleasure.

“Mazda’s team of engineers and designers have worked diligently to create vehicles that are high-quality, stylish, fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient,“ said Masahiro Moro, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. “Using our unique SKYACTIV Technology, Mazda has been able to achieve class-leading fuel efficiency in nearly every segment it competes in while remaining true to its core mission that Driving Matters.“

Mazda’s SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY can be found throughout its vehicle lineup, including MX-5 Miata sportscar, compact Mazda3, midsize Mazda6 family sedan, subcompact CX-3 crossover SUV, compact CX-5 and midsize, three-row CX-9.

Advanced Feature of the 2017 Ford Fusion Can Detect Distracted Pedestrians

November 10th, 2016

PD-Businessman-Image2Borgman Ford hopes that everyone will drive safely and undistracted when cruising around Grand Rapids. However, as smartphones and other personal devices have become commonplace, distracted pedestrians pose a serious problem– even for careful drivers. Though it’s our duty to be on the lookout for pedestrians while driving, Ford has developed some tech that can step in if a distracted pedestrian unexpectedly walks in front of your car.

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, now available on the New 2017 Ford Fusion, uses advanced cameras and RADAR sensors to monitor the surroundings of the car and scan for potential collisions. If it thinks there’s a problem it will alert you, and apply the brakes automatically if needed. Ford hopes the technology will decrease the number front-end collisions, especially those involving pedestrians. This article published by Ford gives you a more in-depth look at the tech, and a video showing the new feature in action. Read the rest of this entry »

Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer and Win a 2017 Ford Fusion

October 20th, 2016

At Borgman Ford, we’re proud to stand with the women of West Michigan and Ford in the fight against Breast Cancer. For October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are highlighting some of the ways you can get involved and show support, whether your life has been affected by Breast Cancer or not. Read on below for more information on the different programs Ford has in place.

The Warriors in Pink Collection

The More Good Days Initiative

Screen Shot 2016-10-19 at 12.33.27 PMMost breast cancer patients find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed and feeling alone – categorizing their days by good days and bad. While many people want to help, most are unsure of the best way to show support. In 2015, Ford Warriors in Pink launched its More Good Days initiative – a simple, yet powerful drive to bring more good days to those living with breast cancer.

Through More Good Days, Ford is empowering people to take real action to help those battling the disease, ultimately giving them more of what they deserve – more good days. Since the launch of this initiative, Warriors in Pink has granted more than 60,000 good day experiences across the country – ranging from rides to treatment centers, and meal and errand-scheduling services.

To help eliminate the hassle of grocery shopping and meal planning, Ford has collaborated with Green Chef – the first and leading national USDA-certified organic meal kit delivery service – to provide free organic meal kits to patients. To help alleviate another pressing daily concern patients have, Warriors in Pink is also working with the nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason to provide free assistance with household chores. Warriors in Pink has also distributed free inspirational postcards and gift baskets, and provided surprise experiences for breast cancer patients and survivors.

You can learn more about the initiative by Reading This Article about a breast cancer study conducted by Ford, or by visiting

Enter to Win a 2017 Ford Fusion

Ford’s commitment in the fight against breast cancer runs well beyond raising funds. The company is dedicated to making a difference 365 days a year by encouraging women to become informed and visit their doctors, educating them about how early detection saves lives. To date, Ford has dedicated more than $130 million to the cause.

We hope that you will join Borgman Ford to support the Warriors in Pink effort. It doesn’t matter if you are a survivor, a co-survivor, or simply someone who cares, your support and contributions can make a world of difference.
