Future Fords: Ford Releases Teaser Images of Bronco & Mystery SUV

March 16th, 2018

Teaser image of the New Ford Bronco SUV, arriving at Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids 2020.

First Look of the Ford Bronco: Coming in 2020 to Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids

Since Ford announced the return of the Bronco at the North American International Auto Show last year, Ford Truck and SUV fans in West Michigan have been waiting to catch their first glimpse of the new off-roader. Over here at Borgman Ford, we’re just as excited about the Bronco’s return, so when we saw the above promo image hit the internet, we wanted to make sure our readers saw it too! Regrettably, the body is covered up in the image, but we’ll get a full reveal all in due time.

We can still glean some info about the new off-roader – even if there’s a big cloth over it. If you take into account the high ground clearance, short wheelbase, and bold, upright design, this is shaping up to be one tough little truck. The image also assuages fears that the New Bronco will simply be a re-badge of the Ford Everest, an SUV sold in international markets. Plus, there appears to be a full-sized spare on the back, which is preferred by many off-road drivers.

Ford teased another off-road SUV too. It appears to be a part of the B-Segment, making it a bit smaller than the Bronco, but featuring a pretty aggressive design. The headlights and grille bring a fresh new look to the Ford SUV lineup, so take a look at the photo below to catch a glimpse of what’s to come. Read the rest of this entry »

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.”
