Ford Fusion Hybrid in Tulsa

Flashback 20 years ago – green initiatives and sustainability were not much of a priority.  Today, there are tons of ways you can reduce your carbon footprint but possibly one of the easiest ways to contribute to a cleaner environment is by driving a new Ford.

 

Bill Knight Ford in Tulsa near Broken Arrow has a selection of new Ford hybrids that are environmentally friendly that help save you money.

How is Ford Green?

Ford is changing the way people we traditionally view of car manufacturers. Instead of being known as a polluter contributor, Ford has been one of the first companies to implement several successful green initiatives to help minimize negative environmental impacts.

 

Ford Green Initiatives

  • Recycled Fabric- Both the Ford Focus and the Escape incorporate 100 percent sustainable fabric and as a whole are made from 80 percent recyclable materials.

  • Fumes-to-Fuel- The Ford Michigan Truck Plant burns paint fumes to fuel the plant. This paint is what’s used to paint the Ford cars and trucks. Fumes-to-Fuel uses ⅓ of the fumes to fuel an equivalent of a full block of suburban homes.

  • Geothermal Cooling System- The Ford Lima Engine Plant utilizes cold water from abandoned limestone quarries to cool part of the plant without using cooling towers which ultimately have saved thousands of gallons of water.

  • Best Global Green Brand- Ford ranked as the #1 Best Global Green brand of 2014 for its green initiatives

 

Green Fords

  • 2015 Focus Electric

  • 2015 Fusion Hybrid

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

  • 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.
