Ford Restarts F-Series Production After Fire At Supplier

May 23rd, 2018

Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids is pleased to announce that thanks to some fancy footwork, Ford was able to resume production of F-Series Trucks. Just in case you haven’t heard, one of Ford’s suppliers, Meridian Magnesium Products, was shut down after a fire broke out in their facility. This, in turn, interrupted the supply chain and halted production of F-Series trucks and a handful of other Ford Vehicles.

Ford got to work with the help of a global team of experts to get Meridian back into production and recover tooling from the damaged facility. Now, production has resumed with minimal interruption. While the fire was tragic and we’re keeping those injured in our thoughts, West Michigan auto shoppers need not worry about finding their next ride at Borgman. Read the rest of this entry »

Why You Won’t Experience “Turbo Lag” in the New 2018 Mazda6

May 11th, 2018

The New 2018 Mazda6 with the turbocharged 2.5L SKYACTIV-G Engine - now available at Borgman Ford Mazda in Grand Rapids, MI

Feel The Difference in the New 2018 Mazda6 at Borgman Mazda

Borgman Mazda is very excited about the recent arrival of the 2018 Mazda6 in Grand Rapids – the first one ever with the 2.5L SKYACTIV-G turbocharged engine. Turbos are incredible machines in and of themselves. They channel exhaust flowing out of the engine to spin a turbine, which then compresses fresh air before it enters the engine. This makes for a more powerful explosion in the engine, resulting in a boost of power and better fuel efficiency.

However, some drivers experience something called “turbo lag,” where the engine hasn’t produced enough exhaust yet to spin the turbine – usually from a stop or in the first few moments of hard acceleration. Mazda drivers know better than most: this won’t fly with Mazda’s engineers. They work to create the best driving experiences possible, and the turbo lag problem has been addressed in the New 2018 Mazda6. You can read an excerpt from InsideMazda below to see how they did it, or visit Borgman Mazda in Grand Rapids today for a test drive.

The Science Of Performance: Torque, Horsepower And The New, Turbocharged 2018 Mazda6 Sedan

With an available 310 lb-ft of torque from a very low 2,000 rpm, the Mazda6’s gutsy, turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine makes more torque than most automakers’ turbo-4 or V-6 engines. The result is a sensation of speed, effortless oomph and a sense of the engine always being ready to tackle the next bend. By contrast, many sedans with similar horsepower and less torque need to work much harder—at a much higher engine rpm—to achieve similar results. The Mazda6’s engine was designed to be intuitive, performance-oriented and rapid in its mission to provide thrills from behind the wheel.

Mazda’s turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine, available in higher-trim models of the 2018 Mazda6 midsize sedan, delivers the right balance of torque and horsepower. This engine innovative features like the Mazda-exclusive Dynamic Pressure Turbo, which uses a butterfly valve in the engine’s exhaust to create more pressure, forcing the turbocharger to boost engine performance.

Think of it like holding your thumb over the end of a garden hose. As a result, the SKYACTIV-G 2.5T’s turbocharger can create boost pressure almost instantaneously, nearly eliminating turbo lag—a sensation experienced in many turbocharged engines before a turbocharger spools up that provides a lull in power. As a result, the SKYACTIV-G 2.5T’s split-second torque helps make driving an utterly effortless, enjoyable experience.

It’s an application of Mazda’s Jinba Ittai—”horse and rider as one”—philosophy, which holds that the car should respond immediately to the driver’s control.
