It’s that time of the year again—and we promise we won’t sugarcoat it like those Staples commercials. Parents and students are back to hastily eating their breakfast and brushing their teeth, before shoving bags and backpacks in their vehicle’s trunk and trudging through morning traffic. While the morning grind can be exhausting for everyone, it doesn’t have to be as hard as it used to be.
With the right vehicle, you can tackle your regular routine and daily commute with ease—especially if it’s a Ford. Which one, you ask? Kentwood Ford’s got the answer for you! Take a look below and see which Ford model suits you best.
One of the more reliable options in the Ford lineup, the Escape offers seating for 5 and gives you 962-litres worth of cargo space with the back seats up, so you never have to worry about the possibility of making round trips ever again. The Escape is also one of the more fuel-efficient choices available, with a 11.5L/100 km consumption rate in the city to last you more than just the first week of school. Additionally, the Escape also has an overall 5-star crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), making it one of the safest crossover vehicles on the market.
A slightly larger option for those who need a more seating, the Explorer makes a great choice. The Explorer fits up to 7 people total and offers some of the most premium amenities available for a full-sized Ford vehicle, such as an exclusive audio system from Sony, the SYNC Connect system with wi-fi capabilities and FordPass compatibility.
Okay, maybe not the most practical option out of the three, but can you imagine pulling up to school with this classic Pony car? All your kids’ friends will wonder why their parents can’t be as cool as you are when they pull up in a minivan at 8 in the morning. If you happen to be a college freshman, the feeling is all the more exhilarating (minus the parking fees).
From all of us here at Kentwood Ford, have a great school year! For the parents reading this, you got this—just keep that coffee strong. If you have any more questions, make sure to let our north Edmonton dealership know!
