How To Maintain Control While On Black Ice | Bill Knight Ford

With winter still hanging on in Tulsa, the threat of ice and snow hangs on, as well. There’s no comparison to the feeling of your heart sinking to your stomach the moment you lose control on a patch of ice. Black ice is one of the biggest dangers when driving in icy conditions.

Black Ice in Tulsa

The Bill Knight Ford team wants to caution drivers in the Tulsa, Bixby, Jenks, Broken Arrow, Catoosa, Sapulpa and Coweta about the dangers of driving on black ice and has come up with some helpful tips about how to spot and how to maintain control if you ever hit black ice.

 

Where is black ice likely to form?

Black ice is more likely to form during early hours of the morning or late hours of the night when the temperature is the lowest and when there is no sunlight. Drive cautiously on bridges and overpasses because these areas are the most likely to have black ice.

 

Driving in icy conditions

  • Don’t use cruise control; this will make it harder to slow down without sliding

  • Check your tire tread

  • Stay a safe distance behind the car in front

 

Maintaining control on black ice

  • Remain calm

  • Keep steering straight and let off of the gas

  • Don’t apply brakes as this will cause you to slide more

  • If you are sliding, don’t try to over correct your steering. Keep steering in the same direction

  • Look for a snowy patch to gain traction

 

Please stay safe on the roads and we hope you remember this information the next time you are driving in icy conditions.

Why We Love Fords | Bill Knight Ford in Tulsa

We love Fords

Valentine’s day is around the corner and it’s hard not to think of that special someone in your life. Here at Bill Knight Ford in Tulsa, we have several crushes – and they’re all Fords!

 

We’ve came up with a few reasons this Valentine’s Day why we love Fords and what makes them stand out in a sea full of other fish.

 

History

Birthed in America more than 100 years ago, Ford is the second largest family owned company in the world. Being made completely in America is one of our favorite aspects of Ford Motor Company.

 

EcoBoost Engines

EcoBoost engines are unique to Ford. They are turbocharged, direct-injected engines that were designed to have as much torque as larger engines but have better fuel efficiency. They also reduce greenhouse emissions by 15 percent.

 

Innovation

From inventing the first moving assembly line 100 years ago, Ford is leading the way with the most innovative technology being implemented into vehicles today. SYNC, which lets you stay connected to your phone without compromising safety and gives you a suite of entertainment options, is one of our favorite Ford technologies.

 

Ford, the first company to do so with a heavy-duty truck, implemented new aluminum structure to the F-150, making it lighter yet more durable and fuel efficient. The F-150 still reigns as most popular truck in America.

 

All of these reasons and more are what make Ford the most searched, purchased and loyal automotive brand in the country.

 

Fall in love with our line of Fords at Bill Knight Ford!  The team at Bill Knight Ford makes buying a new car, truck, or SUV easy. If you are looking for a new car, then we are the dealer for you.

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

  • Baja Mode- high-speed desert running

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.

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.
