Borgman Ford has some exciting news for West Michigan Ford Truck fans, especially those who value performance and capability. The 2019 Ford Raptor arrives later this year, and it’s chock full of upgrades like class-exclusive FOX™ 3.0 Internal Bypass shocks, a New Trail Control system and all-new Recaro sport seats. These feature alongside some new paint options and appearance tweaks too.
What’s particularly interesting about the shocks is this: they can adjust themselves while the vehicle is moving based on the terrain. For instance, if the truck is in mid-air, the system will stiffen them up to smooth out the landing, but relax them on super-bumpy roads. Also worth noting is the New Trail Control System, which behaves somewhat like cruise control for trails. It will automatically adjust the power and brakes for each wheel, so all you have to do is steer. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

On Ford SYNC 3, these functions of the Waze app are now accessible through the power of your voice. Read the rest of this entry »

Late last summer, Borgman Ford asked all of our readers in West Michigan to keep those affected by Hurricane Harvey in their thoughts. It was shortly after a category-4 storm devastated Houston Texas and the surrounding communities, leaving many homeless and many more without basic necessities. Since that time, Ford has been working hard to support those communities in any way they can, and we’re pleased to share some of the things they’ve been doing and the progress that’s been made.

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. Read the rest of this entry »

At Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids, it still makes us giddy when we hear the unmistakable sound of a Ford Mustang GT roaring to life. When that low rumble of the exhaust turns to a powerful roar on the open road, you know there’s something special about it. It doesn’t matter if you’re just getting into muscle cars or a devoted Mustang fan. Your hairs stand up on end, you may get the butterflies, or your pupils might dilate – this is all by design.
Ford put considerable effort into the sound of their performance cars, with the 2019 Mustang being the most recent and dramatic example. Read the rest of this entry »
