During the event, participants will not only be able to get behind the wheel of a brand-new Ford, but they will also be able to help a worthy cause. Many activities and supplies important to the education of Buffalo Grove High School students suffer from a lack of funding. Tight budgets force schools like Buffalo Grove High School to make tough decisions, which often limit opportunities for students. Ford’s Drive 4 UR School event helps get the local community involved in providing the necessary funds that will make a big difference to students at Buffalo Grove High School.
Arlington Heights Ford will be on hand with some of the most popular Ford models that will be available for a test drive. Those vehicles include the new Ford Escape, Fusion, and C-MAX.
The 2014 Ford Escape: This versatile SUV offers a wide range of high-tech amenities and now comes standard with Ford’s SYNC system. With SYNC, drivers are able to remain connected through features like Bluetooth while on the road.
The 2014 Ford Fusion: This sporty sedan does not sacrifice performance for fuel economy. Its available 2.0L turbo engine delivers 240 hp while still earning a combined EPA fuel economy estimate of 26 mpg. The optional MyFord Touch system allows drivers to easily control phone, navigation, and audio functions.
The 2014 Ford C-MAX: Along with a 2.0L four-cylinder gasoline engine, the C-MAX Hybrid is powered by an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. In addition to generating 141 hp, the 2014 C-MAX Hybrid receives EPA estimates of 45 mpg in the city and 40 mpg for highway driving.
