They say you never know where lightning will strike. But that’s not entirely true. At Ziems Ford Corners, we know that Lightning plans to strike on Wednesday, May 19, at 9:30 p.m. Ford Motor Company has announced the reveal of the first-ever all-electric Ford F-150, dubbed Lightning. The reveal will take place via a Livestream from Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan headquarters scheduled for 9:30 a.m. EDT. Farmington viewers can catch the reveal on Ford’s social media platforms, including YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo, here’s what we know about the coming storm: 

The Power of Lightning

America’s favorite truck 44 years running is ready to “turn the legendary revolutionary” and introduce you to its fully electric brethren. The F-150 Lightning is slated to be the most powerful F-150 ever built. Early reports show that the all-new F-150 Lightning will feature a dual-motor powertrain and all-wheel drive. Along with being the most powerful, it should also be the quickest member of the F-150 family. Especially given that electric vehicles offer high torque out-puts and respond instantly to driver inputs. Ford President and CEO Jim Farley described it by saying, “The Lightning can power your home during an outage and will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.” 

What’s in a Name?

Aside from being a near-perfect moniker for an all-electric vehicle, Lightning is an important name in the Ford history books. In the early 1990s and 2000s, the nameplate was applied to a series of high-performance street trucks. These trucks housed some of the most powerful engines of their day. The last generation of the nameplate held a supercharged 5.4-liter unit that boasted 380 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. In their time, these trucks offered serious performance with the style chops to match. We envision that the nameplate could be revived for nothing less than gale force strength. 

Creating a Storm 

It’s not easy turning electricity into lightning, but the Michigan-based Ford Rouge EV Complex is up to the challenge. This plant is set to be “the cathedral of American manufacturing and Ford’s most advanced plant” according to Farley. The Lightening’s body and paintwork will be completed at the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant. The F-150 Lightning is scheduled to enter production in mid-2022 for the 2023 model year. 

Storm Chaser

If you can’t wait to see how the all-new Ford F-150 Lightning lives up to its heritage, neither can we. All of us at Ziems will be tuned in to see the reveal. Visit our showroom to find out how and when you can get your hands on Lightening. The Ford F-150 Lightning that is! 

 

It’s that time again. Every year in March, Ford launches the American tradition: Ford Truck Month. It’s a tradition that’s nearly 100 years old. For the last 60 years, Ziems Ford Corners has been proudly celebrating Ford Truck Month. 

In 1917, the first purpose-built Ford truck rolled off the assembly line. The Ford Model TT is likely the most radically different Ford Model T variant ever produced. Its production forever changed the automotive industry – and the very nature of work itself. 

In 1948, the first F-Series truck emerged from the Highland Park plant, changing the long-term manufacturing of pick-up trucks. Eight years later, in 1961, a retired Air Force Pilot from St. Louis opened Ziems Ford Corners in Farmington, New Mexico changing Four Corners car buying forever. 

60 Years of Truck Months

Since our humble beginnings, when Joe Ziems first founded this dealership, the team at Ziems Ford Corners has proudly celebrated truck month. It’s the time of year when buyers can get the biggest savings, the best financing and the most robust warranties. Whether looking for an F-150, F-250, Super Duty or Ranger, Ziems has the truck you want at a price you’ll like. During truck month, Ford has a whole selection of “Bonus Packages” to choose from, making now the best time to buy that new Ford Truck.

And so it Continues

More than a century after creation, Ford trucks are still among the most iconic vehicles in the world. Today, the F-Series is America’s best-selling truck for its 44th consecutive year and best-selling vehicle for 39 years straight. When an icon gets to a certain age, automakers usually begin to rely on a certain level of nostalgia to help sell them. But the Ford F-Series puts all those cars to shame. In fact, for decades now, it has put everything to shame in the sales department. If you want to own an iconic legend of your own, call us at (888) 375-9581 or stop by Ziems Ford Corners to see why we’ve been the best for the last 60 years.

It’s no secret that from the Four Corners to the ends of the world, Ford trucks have undeniable popularity. In fact, not even a global pandemic could break the incomparable streak of the Ford F-Series. Once again the F-150 reigned supreme and brought home the title of Best Selling Truck in America for the 44th year in a row.  At Ziems Ford Corners, we like to think of them as the swiss army knife of the truck world because they have it all. Want top-of-the-line luxury plus modern tech? Check. Are you seeking unmatched off-roading capability? Handled. Do you need an EPA-estimated range of 700 miles on a single tank of gas? Done. Is the versatility of massive cargo something you’re after? The F-150 has it covered. All that plus best in best-in-class towing, payload, torque and horsepower make this the truck that has it all. 

The Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 is America’s best-selling vehicle and has been since 1977, the same year the first Apple II computer went on sale, and NASA tested its first space shuttle. Today, the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 is purpose-built from the ground up to be the toughest, most productive model ever. It’s a beast with brains to match. A truck that seamlessly merges premium-grade muscle with finely tuned intelligence and unmatched design. It’s relentlessly tough with a military-grade, aluminum-alloy body and torture-tested high-strength steel frame. This truck includes enough power to light up a house, and enough strength to tow or haul almost anything. With six trim levels plus the dune hopping F-150 Raptor and the city-dwelling F-150 Tremor, there’s a truck for every lifestyle. 

Legendary Loyalty

Since its earliest days, the F-Series has been the leader of the pack in the truck market. It’s one of the most iconic Ford models ever built only behind the Model T. With reliability and dependability under their hoods, vintage models still work alongside today’s high-tech versions. 

Today, there are more F-Series trucks on the road with odometer readings above 250,000 miles than any other brand. This truck is Built Ford Proud, and proud to be American-born and bred. Since its inception in 1948, the F-series has always been a leader and today the F-150 is in its fourteenth generation. That’s the kind of longevity that ultimately inspires some serious brand loyalty. There’s no need for nostalgic self-reflection on the F-150’s part; the F-Series is just as it always was, and as it will always be.

The Built Ford Tough F-150 aluminum body is a favorite topic of conversation at Ziem’s Ford Corners, especially during Truck Month. Back in 2015, Ford shocked the world by switching from the expected steel construction to aluminum, and never looked back. 

Less is More

The Ford F-150 is the only truck in its class constructed of high strength military-grade aluminum-alloy. This is the same 6000 series material used in aerospace, military and industrial applications. This construction gained America’s Best Selling Truck a 700-pound weight reduction over its original design. It’s one of the main reasons the F-150 can boast a best-in-class payload up to 13,200 pounds towing capacity. The weight savings also helps the F-150 accelerate quicker, stop shorter and be more fuel-efficient.

Strength and Durability

Ford engineers selected the aluminum-alloy in part because of the metals’ unique ability to withstand tough customer demands. Before the decision was made, these materials were torture-tested to Built Ford Tough standards and exceeded expectations. The lightweight property allows an increase in gauge (or thickness) to achieve strength without increasing body weight, which as mentioned, equals a greater power to weight ratio. But that’s not all. The aluminum-alloy has improved resistance to dings, dents and scratches. 

Resistance to Corrosion

If ding resistance, payload, capacity, lightweight strength and fuel efficiency aren’t enough, there’s more. The natural properties of aluminum make it resistant to corrosion and the material doesn’t rust. Preproduction our aluminum-alloy was torture tested by enduring salt and acid sprays. This means that the high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body on the 2021 F-150 will stay relatively shiny throughout its lifetime. 

An Eco-friendly Option

Eco-friendly isn’t always a word associated with heavy-duty trucks, but along with fuel efficiency, and the available all-new 3.5L PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 engine, the carbon footprint for aluminum-based vehicles is smaller than that of their steel constructed counterparts. That’s because aluminum is 100% recyclable and retains its properties indefinitely. In fact, more than 75% of all aluminum from 1888 is still in use. That means most of the aluminum being used for building vehicles today is over 100 years old.
