2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Unveiled | Bill Knight Ford in Tulsa

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

The Ford F-150 Raptor has been redesigned and made its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor was built to be tougher, smarter and more efficient. This high performance, off-road Ford pickup is expected to be available Fall 2016.

The Bill Knight Ford team in the Tulsa, Bixby and Jenks area is bringing you the first look of the much anticipated and bold 2017 Ford F-150. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty pickup truck, come and see us. We have roughly 200 Ford F-150s on our lot – the best selection in Tulsa.

 

Tough

The new 2017 Raptor features tougher military-grade aluminum alloy framing than the original Raptor making it the strongest F-150 in the lineup. It rides a total of 6 inches higher than the average F-150 and was specifically designed to handle anything on and off the road with its BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires.

 

Smart

The 3.5-liter EcoBoost powers the Raptor with more juice than the current 6.2-liter V8 engine. New technology, like the Raptor’s Terrain Management System, can be adjusted to handle any outside environment including mud, sand and snow.

 

Six presets come standard on every Raptor to handle:

  • Normal Mode- everyday driving

  • Street Mode- high performance

  • Weather Mode- for weather conditions like rain, snow and ice

  • Mud and Sand Mode- muddy and sandy trails

  • Baja Mode- high-speed desert running

  • Rock Mode- low-speed rock crawling

Ford made off-road capability a priority when designing the upgraded 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. It will clearly be the most capable pickup on the market.

Improve Your Fuel Economy in Tulsa | Bill Knight Ford Tulsa

Improving Your Fuel Economy

Even though gas prices are remaining low across Tulsa, they are largely inconsistent and vary in time. There are, however, several ways to consistently improve your fuel economy on your Ford.

 

We’ve asked our professionals at Bill Knight Ford to come up with some of the best ways drivers in the Tulsa, Bixby, Catoosa, Sapulpa and Jenks area can improve their fuel economy. If gas prices increase, these habits will help to save drivers a little extra money in their wallets.

 

Maintain Your Car

Cars that are regularly maintained get better gas mileage than those that aren’t. Keeping up with maintenance on your engine can improve your fuel economy on average up to 4 percent. Getting serious issues like faulty oxygen sensors fixed can improve your fuel economy by up to 40 percent. Getting your oil change and using the recommended oil can improve your fuel economy by 1-2 percent. Making sure your tires are properly inflated can also help better your fuel efficiency.

 

Buy the Right Gas

Buying premium gas when your engine is supposed to run on regular won’t increase your vehicle’s performance. In some cases, it can actually hinder your vehicle’s performance. Make sure you are using the recommended octane level to maximize your fuel economy.

 

Tighten Your Gas Cap

Making sure your gas cap is tightly screwed on can better your fuel efficiency. A loose gas cap can allow gas vapors to leak from the tank. You will know you’ve tightened your gas cap correctly when you hear a clicking noise.

 

If you need to get your car maintenance to help improve your fuel efficiency, schedule an appointment with our skilled service team by contacting us or scheduling an appointment online!

Carpooling in Tulsa | Bill Knight Ford

Traffic

If you live in Tulsa, you know that one of the worst roads to travel on, especially during rush hour, is the Crosstown Expressway. It actually ranks in the 75 worst commutes in America. One of the best ways for Tulsans to combat this traffic is by carpooling to work or school. Carpooling in Tulsa could actually be a way to alleviate congestion on the highway.

 

The team at Bill Knight Ford in Tulsa have come up with some reasons for commuters in the Bixby, Broken Bow and Jenks area to choose carpooling instead of commuting alone.

 

Reasons for Carpooling in Tulsa

 

Saves You Money

One of the most important reasons to carpool is that it saves you money. Gas prices aren’t as high as they used to be but you could spend half as much as you do now on gas just by riding with another person to work. It also saves you a ton of money on tolls, which can add up.

 

Helps the Environment

Whenever you choose to carpool, you are helping eliminate a percentage of carbon that is emitted into the atmosphere.

 

More Mileage, More Problems

If you work a forty-hour work week, then you know how many miles you average putting on your car each week just by driving back and forth to work. A lot of cars have mileage warranties or if you are leasing your car you might want to consider carpooling. The less mileage you can put on your car, the better.

 

More Parking

Unless you have an designated parking spot at work, you understand the frustration of trying to find an available spot. If you carpool, you won’t have to worry about stressing over finding a spot – half of the time. If enough people carpool, it will eliminate the overcrowding in the parking lot.

2015 Ford F-150 Payload

 

The experts at Bill Knight Ford decided to compare the 2015 Ford F-150 to the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado to show which areas the F-150 trumps the Silverado.

Hauling and Towing

One of the main reasons anyone buys a truck is to use it for hauling and towing. Ford doesn’t lie when it says its Ford trucks are “built tough.” The 2015 Ford F-150 might just be the toughest truck yet. Ford just announced that the new F-150 can tow up to 12,200 lbs and can haul up more than 3,300 lbs in its bed, an upgrade from the 2014 model.

 

The Chevrolet Silverado can’t beat the F-150’s max towing load. The F-150 can tow 200 more pounds than the Silverado and carry 1,280 more pounds!

 

Space

The F-150 has a considerably large amount of space compared to the Silverado. The cargo volume of the F-150 bed is 62.3 ft. compared to the Silverado’s 53.4 ft. With the F-150, you also get more leg, head and shoulder room inside the cabin.

 

Price

Price is often one of the deciding factors when buying a vehicle. The Ford F-150 is at a lower price than the Chevrolet Silverado. You are ultimately paying more for less truck with the Silverado because the F-150 can haul more and has more space. The F-150 also offers all of the same features as the Silverado.

Winterize Your Car in Tulsa, Oklahoma

2015 Ford Explorer

Many were left stranded and unprepared after the brutal winter we experienced last year. If you live in the Jenks, Broken Bow, Bixby and Tulsa area, get ready to see an average of 13 inches of snow this winter! That’s why we decided to talk to our maintenance professionals here at Bill Knight Ford to give you the best tips to winterize your car and keep you from getting left in the snow this winter.

 

Winter Kit

How many times have you overestimated the power of your car during a snow storm? How many times did that overestimation leave you stranded on the side of the road? That’s why  we recommended you pack a winter kit for your car. In the event you get stuck in the ice or snow, pack a light bag with:

  • a change of clothes

  • gloves

  • water

  • phone charger

  • a pair of winter boots

  • non-perishable snacks

 

Fill Up

Always make sure you have a full or near-to-full tank of gas. If you’re one of those drivers who waits until you are on E before refilling your tank, you might want to change that habit entering the winter months. During the harsh winter season, condensation can build on the walls of your gas tank. If your gas level is low, water can drip into the tank and freeze in the fuel lines. This can be extremely harmful to your car and the repairs can be costly. Not to mention, if you get stranded, you will always want a full tank of gas so that you can keep your car running to keep warm.

 

Check Your Car

Be sure to check your oil and coolant levels, belts and hoses, battery and tire pressure. The winter months can be harsh on all of these areas of the car. Hoses and belts can crack and break in cold temperatures so it’s wise to have a mechanic take a look under the hood. The life of your battery is also important as you don’t want to break down in the frigid weather. Also, be aware that tires need to have more air in the winter allowing you to gain more traction.
