The Ford Escape Just Became Millennial’s Favorite SUV

Millennial’s Favorite SUV

2017 Ford Escape

Ford it taking a new approach to reaching out to “Millennial’s” with a new game that is appealing to this generation’s love of games and puzzles.  With this game, it wouldn’t be surprising if the 2017 Ford Escape became the Millennial’s Favorite SUV.

The Escape Experience sounds similar to those new breakout games that have started popping up all over the place.  The idea is to use clues given in the game to help solve different puzzles and “escape”.  The game takes place in New York, and your tools to help you escape are, of course, the 2017 Ford Escape.  This game creates a virtual test drive like none you’ve ever experienced, and allows for young adults who enjoy playing games to test out the Ford Escape without have to travel to the dealership.

Perhaps the most compelling piece of this new Escape Room game is that you have to use the technology available in the Ford Escape in order to solve the puzzle to get out.  Although, everyone loves technology and the sounds of things like “adaptive cruise control” and “voice-to-text with SYNC3” sound cool, this game allows for its users to actually see and use these technologies firsthand!

I don’t know about you, but here at Highway Ford, we would love to try out this new Escape Room game.  Tell us your thoughts about how Ford is combine auto world with gaming world!

Best Hot Dog Recipes

Summer Grilling

Here are some great hot dog recipes to spice up your favorite summertime food.

  • Nacho Dog. Add chunky guacamole, a grilled tomato-chipotle sauce, cheese, jalapenos, salsa, and tortilla chips to take your hot dog to the next level.
  • Pretzel buns. Try swapping out the bread for a new hot dog taste. Use a soft pretzel bun for your grilled dogs and add your favorite toppings to excite your taste buds.
  • Texas Dog. With crunchy coleslaw, a sliced pickle, and a touch of barbecue sauce you might feel like you’re at the Texas State Fair.
  • Brooklyn’s Corniest Hot Dogs. These hot dogs redefine what a corn dog is. Pile caramelized onions, bacon, corn, and cheese on top of these dogs for a tasty New York-inspired treat.
