  • The new 2015 Transit – more than one size fits all!

    6/13/2014 1:30:43 PM - by Patrick Sexton
     It’s the end of an era in some respects, as the vehicle that’s given Ford 35 years of market leadership is changing. The Ford Transit will be taking over from the E-Series, but it’s by no means an unknown. This is because the Transit has led the global van market since 1965 when it was first introduced in Europe.

    What the new Transit brings is hug elements of flexibility, capability, and efficiency. Engines include 3.&L Ti-VCT V6, 3.5L Ecoboost V6, and 3.2L Power Stroke I-5 Diesel. The fuel efficiency of the EcoBoost engine will be of particular appeal for commercial users travelling from job to job around this Houston area to help keep costs in check.

    Where Ford’s Transit really extends the performance of the E-Series is the greater cargo carrying capability. The Transit van has three length options, and three roof options.

    It’s…

    Taller – Interior heights of 56.9” (low roof), 72” (medium roof), or 81.5” (high roof) vs. 55.3” for all E-Series vans.

    Longer – cargo length at floor of 126”, 143”, or 172” vs. 122” or 142” for E-Series.

    Wider – cargo width between wheel houses of 54.8” vs. 52.5” for E-Series.

  • So the F-150 is aluminum right? Partly...

    6/7/2014 7:41:58 PM - by Patrick Sexton
    Any negative questions surrounding the durability of the new 2015 F-150 can be quickly dismissed.

    Steel still remains with its frame, but the aluminum alloy body is the real game changer!

     Let me break it down for you…

    Ford F-150 at Legacy Ford Rosenberg

    The steel frame

     - New design.

    - More high-strength steel than the previous model, fully boxed with through-welded crossmembers - to make it the strongest F-150 frame ever.

    - Impressive ground clearance.

    The Aluminum Body

    - Military grade, like a fighter jet, and specially heat-treated and gauged.
    - Stands up to the most extreme condititions and demanding situtaions, with strength to resist dents, dings, and rust.
    - Lighter weight improves fuel efficiency, along with enabling increased towing and payload. 

    The new F-150 has all the credentials to enable Ford to maintain its leadership when it comes to trucks. Personally, I can’t wait to get behind the wheel!

    Our new F-150 arrivals are due in quarter 4 of this year. Stay connected to Legacy Ford here on our blog and also through social media like FacebookTwitter and our Pinterest board for the latest details and the first opportunity to order one of the new trucks.

  • 1/1964: The anniversary 2015 Mustang is coming to Rosenberg!

    5/26/2014 5:21:14 PM - by Patrick Sexton
    Ford is marking the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with an exclusive Limited Edition.
     The 50th anniversary special edition Ford Mustang at Legacy
    The original Mustang was first shown to the public at the 1964 World’s Fair. Fifty years later, the 50th Year Limited Edition is based on the all-new 2015 Mustang GT fastback with performance pack.

    The 50th year Limited Edition is designed to provide outstanding performance and a unique appearance that will be instantly recognizable on the road. The only options are the choice of two exclusive colors and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.  

    The only two available colors are Wimbledon White, like Mustang serial No. 0001 that was first sold to Capt. Stanley Tucker in April 1964, or Kona Blue.

    From behind the wheel, drivers will know they are driving something unique. A special serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge is found on the passenger side, each individually etched at Flat Rock Assembly Plant where Mustang is built.  

    The limited-edition is the only 2015 Mustang with a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The stitching is also used on the instrument panel, shifter boot, center armrest, door inserts and seats. The seats feature exclusive two-tone cashmere and black leather upholstery, and the Mustang 50 Year logo on the seat backs.  

    Powered by the upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine delivering more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque, every 50 Year Limited Edition will be equipped with the Mustang GT performance pack that includes massive six-piston Brembo front brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels with high-performance Y-speed-rated Pirelli P-Zero summer tires. These feature a unique Y-spoke design inspired by the chromed steel wheels that were offered on the original Mustang.  

    The 50 Year Limited Edition car will be among the first 2015 Mustangs built when production begins later this year. In the meantime, Follow Legacy's board 1 of 1964.. the new limited edition 2015 Mustang GT on Pinterest.
