The Explorer has come a long way since its debut 25 years ago, and we can’t wait to see where the next 25 take us! Chances are, the Explorer will still be around. (more…)

2016 Ford F150 release date in Tampa FL

As you probably already know, the F150 is one of the most popular, most widely searched, most utilized vehicles out there. It is great for any type of heavy-duty lifting or towing, it is efficient and it is super high-tech with all of the available features.
