A Quick Peek at Ford’s Presence at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Every year the Goodwood Festival of Speed draws immense crowds to the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England for a three day celebration of racing, and automotive performance. It is a truly unique event held at one of the most picturesque locations in all of Europe and it just so happens to showcase some of the most impressive race cars from the past and present, and so much more that we can’t fit here. Ford established its presence there with the vehicles of the Ford performance lineup, including the Ford GT and all-new Ford Focus RS.

Of course, where high-performance cars go, Ken Block is sure to be nearby, and the famous racer was in attendance for the 2015 festival. Driving his custom 1967 Mustang and a Focus RS, Block was likely one of the attendees to have the most fun. Take a look at the video below which features Block explaining some of the highlights of the festival.

Ford Readies for Big Weekend at Watkins Glen

The Watkins Glen raceway holds a special place in the heart of racing fans. A challenging and iconic course, this weekend it hosts the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race. While this race may not have the immense popularity of other events, this running of the race will likely find more eyes upon it, as it is the first time we will be able to witness the Ford Shelby® GT350R-C Mustang in action.

Very heavily based on the Ford Shelby® GT350R that was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, this new racer is also powered by the all-new Ford 5.2-L flat-plane-crank V8, though it’s safe to assume that the power output will be slightly different than the 500+horsepower of the model revealed in Detroit.

Check out the reveal from Detroit below and check out the race this weekend to see the vehicle in action.

To catch the race this weekend, tune in to the IMSA website, but to learn more about the Ford Mustang or the many variants thereof, come and see the Jim Bass Auto Group. Our family of dealerships will be able to easily and conveniently set you up in the perfect new Ford for a future of automotive bliss throughout San Angelo, TX and beyond.

The Nissan LEAF Will Make an EV Fan Out of You

Here at Jim Bass Auto Group we know that some drivers are skeptical about electric vehicles. Maybe it’s because they don’t think EVs can do as much as gas cars can. Well we think the Nissan LEAF can change their minds and turn them into EV fans. Just watch the video below to hear what one LEAF owner has to say about her experience with this vehicle.

It’s clear that this family is happy with their decision to drive the LEAF. They originally thought it would be their secondary vehicle used just for short errands, but its capabilities far exceeded their expectations. It turned out they could use it for just about anything, so that’s just what they did. Now it’s their primary vehicle that they use for both their short and long trips. Its 126 city MPGe and 84-mile driving range makes it easy to use this vehicle the same way you would use a gas car, while saving money along the way.

How Much Can the 2015 Ford F-150 Really Handle?

Here at Jim Bass Auto Group we know that the Ford F-150 has always been a tough truck. Well the 2015 model was designed to be the toughest one yet, thanks to its aluminum alloy body. Take a look at the video below to see just how tough it really is.

It’s clear that aluminum alloy bed is stronger than the steel bed; although they both dented when they were pelted with various objects, the dents in the aluminum alloy bed were shallower than those in the steel. So when you’re loading cargo into the back of your 2015 F-150, you can feel confident that your truck is durable enough to handle it and stay in great shape in the process.
