New Ford F-150 Truck A Favorite Among Veterans

February 6th, 2018


Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids was pleased to hear that the Ford F-150 was named the top truck choice among veterans of our armed forces.

Many features of the New Ford F-150 are likely a part of the appeal to veterans, including the tough-as-nails frame, high-strength aluminum-alloy body, powerful engines, and numerous tech features like the onboard WiFi Hotspot and SYNC 3.

Below is an excerpt from an article published in the Official Ford Media Center, recognizing the Ford F-150 as the favorite truck of veterans.

Ford F-150 The Favorite Vehicle Of America’s Military

Ford F-150 has again been named most popular vehicle among America’s active and retired military service members, according to an analysis of former and active-duty military personnel using United Services Automobile Association’s car buying service.

This honor reflects 41 years of Ford’s uncompromising commitment to quality, durability and resilience with F-Series as America’s best-selling truck and 36 years as America’s best-selling vehicle.

According to Jimmy Spears, auto analyst for USAA, a financial services group, Ford F-150 was the No. 1 purchase choice across all branches of the U.S. military last year.

“We are proud and humbled that those who protect and defend our country choose Ford F-Series,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager.“F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body is designed to serve customers who are used to performing in the harshest of environments and who rely on the capability, durability, and functionality delivered consistently by Built Ford Tough.”

Toys For Tots & Borgman Ford Spread Holiday Cheer Through West Michigan!

December 19th, 2017


Ford Transits From Borgman Help Volunteers Work More Efficiently

Contrary to popular belief, gifts aren’t always delivered for Christmas morning by a team of reindeer pulling a sleigh. In the case of the Marine Toys For Tots organization in Grand Rapids, MI, those gifts will need to be picked up from drop-off points all over Kent County, sorted, then given for children in need throughout West Michigan – all before Christmas.

TransitInterior_600x600This is a monumental task, and Borgman sought to help make the job easier by loaning two Ford Transit Vans to the local Marine Corps Reserve Unit and volunteers for making toy pickup runs. I met up with Pete and Ben, two volunteers for Toys For Tots, and they invited me to follow along as they made their pickup run in a new Ford Transit-250. Read the rest of this entry »

Toys for Tots Drive 2017… in Transit Vans!

November 16th, 2017


Borgman Ford is playing Santa’s sleigh-helper for the 2017 Toys for Tots Drive. Area Marine Corps Reserve volunteers will be touring the town to collect toys to brighten the life of a child this Christmas in two Ford Transit Vans loaned to the cause. Each year, the US Marine Corps teams up with various businesses and organizations to provide toy drop-off locations for those wishing to make a donation. The Marine Corps Reserve, Marine Corps League and civilian volunteers collect all toy donations and distribute them to needy families in the area.

“The Transit Cargo Van is a very capable Dasher or Comet ” said Tod Tobin, Commercial Account manager in Borgman’s Fleet department. “Pick any reindeer who’s a reliable performer with some zip and you have the soul-twin of the Transit Van.”

Ford’s best selling delivery workhorse will be making the rounds at Grand Rapids area businesses this year throughout the balance of November until the final pickup December 20th.

“We challenge every business to do what they can to collect toys for this great cause. Sign up and brighten the life of a child,” said Matt Borgman, General Manager of the dealership.

Borgman Ford Mazda will be calling on its own customers to fill a few van loads of toys this season. Drop-offs begin today, with a $10 Off Oil Change coupon for the first 250 donors.


Stop by the dealership at 3150 28th Street SW, Grand Rapids, MI any time before Dec. 10th with your unwrapped toy(s). The average age for children receiving toys is 14 years and younger. Please note that Toys For Tots will not accept realistic looking weapon toys and gifts with food.

To register as a Toys For Tots recipient, contact a Marine Corps representative.


The deadline to register to become a drop off location is Nov. 26. Follow this link to sign up:
