Ford Mustang Monopoly Piece becomes part of Monopoly’s History

2016 Ford Mustangs

For those of you who love the iconic Monopoly game, your favorite Ford sports car will now be part of its history.  This year the Ford Mustang monopoly piece will be replacing the Corvette Stingray in Monopoly Empire.

If you are an avid fan of Monopoly and have played this classic board game since you were little, you know the importance of picking the right piece to ensure victory!  With the Ford Mustang added to the lineup, we are hopeful that this piece will see many victories, much akin to the way this muscle car has won many awards over its 50 years of existence.

In addition to the Ford Mustang being added to the game, Ford Motor Company has made its way to the board as well.  Ford will take the place of the Ventnor Avenue in yellow and will cost $300K to purchase.  Ford is clearly a place of importance in this Monopoly Empire game, and we hope both the Mustang and the Ford Place will help lead players to victory for those who acquire them!

In all seriousness though, we are excited that Ford can be a part of this iconic board game and showcase its famous muscle car among the ranks of monopoly pieces.  Tell us at Highway Ford which piece is your favorite to choose to play!

Ford’s Feisty New Fiesta ST200 Offers Superior Performance

2016 Ford Fiesta

Ford has nudged up the performance numbers of the new Ford Fiesta. This fierce hatchback just became feistier, as the all new Fiesta ST200.

The Fiesta ST200 has a recalibrated version of the engine, which gives more temporary horsepower thanks to the transient overboost. Engineers at Ford have kept the six-speed manual gearbox, but have shorted the final drive ratio. This allows the Fiesta to reach 62 mph in 6.7 seconds. This is 0.2 seconds faster than the regular Fiesta ST. In addition, the top speed of the ST200 reaches 143 mph, which is six mph faster than the ST.

Ford has also enhanced the sport chassis, giving it more Torque Vectoring Control and a 3-mode Electronic Stability Control. There is also a stiffer suspension, which is 15mm lower, bigger rear brake discs, a sharper steering rack, and modified front steering knuckles.

Of course, don’t worry if you don’t know what those specific items are, as it visually stands apart from the ST. You can also identify the new ST200 by the model exclusive Strom Grey paint and 17-inch machined black alloy wheels with red brake calipers. On the inside, the ST200 has unique partial leather Charcoal Recar front seats. There is contrasting silver stitching on the seats and seatbelts, and the scuff plates are illuminated.

The Ford Fiesta ST200 goes on sale this June. Be sure to stop by Highway Ford in DeRidder, La to see the regular Ford Fiesta in stock today!
