Push Pull Tow Sale Successfull

Thank you everybody for making our sale a huge success. We had over 300 people show up for the sale event and many of them took advantage of the minimum trade value for vehicles that were worth hundreds not thousands. For those of you who weren't able to make it out, no worries. We usually only do this sale once a year, but we may have it once more before the year ends. We want to thank our vendors, parts suppliers and salvage partners for teaming up with us and making this possible.

Ford F-150 FX4 with appearance package

New 2012 Ford F-150 FX4 (Red Crew Cab Pickup) Near Grand Rapids
FX4 appearance package
We have another one in! And this color looks awesome with the FX4 appearance package. The black grill, tires and running boards, the black graphics and the black and red F-150 label really sets this truck apart from the rest. The FX4 appearance package adds red piping to the interior seating of the truck so it matches perfectly with this color exterior. There are very few F-150's set up like this one in Northern America. If your looking for a truck that people will notice and applaud and that is not too gaudy or outrageous this is it. Check out more photos inside and out of this sweet looking ride and you will see what I am talking about.

2013 Ford Escape is Here

Our first 2013 Ford Escape just dropped off at our dealership today. We are very excited here at Ed Koehn to  show this off. If you are interested in checking out the new redesign or to see how this drives feel free to come in and try it out while its still on our lot. This will sell soon I am sure.
We ordered our first one with the basic options so our clients can see whats all included in a base model, which is quite a bit and at a reasonable price. There are many available optional equipment including the new power lift gate that you simply wave your foot under the bumper to make open. This would have came in handy when I had my hands full of groceries coming out of Meijer yesterday. The Escape we have is an S with the new 2.0 liter Ecoboost engine. 
The Escape out here has a very cool exterior and a unique layout that Ford designed for the interior. It looks awesome. And then the 2.0 Ecoboost....nothing else compares to this in a mid-size SUV right now. This engine has a trailer tow rating of 3500 lbs with highway gas mileage rated at 31 mpg! That's an amazing combination that no other midsize can touch right now.
Build and price one of these new 2013 Escape right on our website. If you have any questions about this vehicle just email us.
