Ford Performance Cars Crushing Sales Expectations Worldwide

Ford Performance Cars

Ford’s stellar lineup of performance vehicles is more popular than ever, and the numbers prove it. In fact, Ford performance cars are currently on track to break sales records this year, with tons of drivers snatching up the Ford Mustang, Ford Focus RS and ST, and Ford Fiesta ST.

More than 200,000 individual Ford performance cars are expected to be sold this year, all throughout the world, which is astonishingly more than twice the amount of Ford performance cars sold a few years ago.

And these sales aren’t expected to slow down anytime soon. Ford even has additional performance models planned for the future, with about half a dozen new performance vehicles slated to be released before the decade ends.

If you are interested in a Ford performance car, you should visit us before it is too late! Demand for the Shelby GT350 and GT350R is out of control, with an endless list of order commitments, and the Focus RS is almost entirely sold out, due to global interest.

Ford performance vehicles have never been hotter! Contact us or visit us anytime, here at Highway Ford, to learn more about Ford performance vehicles or to take one out on a test drive, before they disappear.

Hennessey Performance Ford Focus RS Package Increases Torque, Horsepower and More

Hennessey Performance Ford Focus RS Package

Hennessey Performance has seriously raised the bar for the 2017 Ford Focus RS, increasing the horsepower and torque production in the already powerful vehicle from 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque to 405 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque.

Many would have said that the 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque was clearly enough, but there’s never enough for Hennessey Performance.  And they did everything they could to make this beast of a car just a bit more beastly.

The Hennessey Performance Ford Focus RS package, HPE400, also comes with a long list of additional upgrades, including a high-flow air filter and a stainless steel exhaust upgrade which is aimed to make the vehicle’s exhaust even louder, just for the thrills.

As for just how quickly the Ford Focus RS can accelerate with this package, we do not know yet, but the basic version of the car already can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in a mere 4.6 seconds. There’s no telling just how powerful it could get with this package.

If you’re interested in learning more about the 2017 Ford Focus RS or its Hennessey Performance upgrade, feel free to contact us or visit us anytime at Highway Ford.

Keep $6,000 in Your Pocket with the 2015 Ford Focus Electric Price Drop

2014 Ford Focus

Ford has cut the price of the 2015 Ford Focus Electric by another $6,000. The 2014 Ford Focus Electric plug-in is shown here.

With yet another $6,000 price drop for the 2015 model, the Ford Focus Electric has gone from being a bargain to being a steal here at Highway Ford.

Last year, Ford had lowered the $39,200 price of the Focus Electric by about $4,000 to try to increase sales. Now, with the new discount, the EV will start at a mere $29,995, giving consumers not just an incentive to take a look at the car but rather something more like a vigorous push.

With these price drops, Ford hopes to take a bigger piece of the EV pie that it has been sharing with the Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Volt, Honda Fit EV, and Mitsubishi i, all of which have also received discounts at some point in their lifetimes to try to remain competitive.

Thanks to the $6,000 discount, the Focus Electric is now priced almost identically to the Nissan Leaf, despite being offered exclusively in top-spec SEL trim, which features equipment similar to that of the more expensive mid-level LEAF.

Take advantage of the new Ford Focus Electric price drop!
