Getting a flat tire is never convenient. That is why Ford
has partnered with Michelin® to equip the all-new Ford Explorer with available
Selfseal® tires. These proprietary tires will come with a unique rubber sealant
that will be able to fill about 90% of tread punctures up to a quarter-inch in
These tires will come standard on the Explorer Platinum and
Explorer Limited Hybrid four-wheel-drive models and will be available on
Explorer Limited two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models.
“The all-new Explorer is designed to help our customers feel unstoppable and worry-free,” said Craig Patterson, Explorer marketing manager. “The availability of these new Michelin® Selfseal® tires is another great example of that.”
With these tires, they slow the loss of air pressure with a puncture to less than 15 pounds per square inch per week. This could give you time to finish your family vacation or at least make it to your preferred tire store to buy a replacement. For even more security, all Explorer models come standard with a spare tire.
The sealant inside the Selfseal® tires surrounds any
puncturing object to seal the hole. If the object falls out, the sealant should
fill the tread puncture to slow air loss.
No matter the season, there are always sporting events to
watch and cheer for. A great way to do this is by hosting a game-watching
party. This lets you cheer on your favorite teams with your best friends all
while eating some delicious food. If you need some snack inspiration, check out
this list of mouth-watering temptations.
One of the great things about nachos is they don’t require any dipping. Pile all your favorite toppings on beforehand and let everyone enjoy the perfect topping-to-chip ratio. For a new idea, try Guy Fieri’s Italian-inspired recipe.
Pigs in a Blanket
Hot dogs wrapped in flaky pastry will always be delicious. Add a tangy dipping sauce alongside the standard ketchup for some variety.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
For something sweet and delicious try whipping up these homemade ice cream sandwiches. Roll the sandwiches in mini M&M’s or chocolate chips to finish them off.
You can never go wrong with chicken wings while watching sports. Make plenty so they don’t all disappear before halftime. Try recipes like this honey mustard version of even chicken parmesan.
Relive your college days while cheering on your alma mater
with a delicious pizza. Make the dough ahead of time and then let everyone
choose their own ingredients.
Here at Westland Ford, we hope you and your entire crew enjoy cheering for your favorite team.
The skiing on offer in the state of Utah is some of best in the U.S.A. and it’s only natural that many amazing resorts have sprung up around the state to accommodate the locals and visitors alike who come from across the country to enjoy the fresh Utah powder. Some of the best areas, however, can be a bit remote so having a full-size Ford truck can really come in handy when you just have to hit the slopes.
Powder Mountain has made a name for itself
through exclusivity. The resort only allows 1,500 ticket sales per day ensuring
that there is never a crowd where you want to put down your tracks. Due to this
exclusivity, Powder Mountain requires a bit of pre-planning. During that
pre-planning you may want to consider packing an extra cooler in the truck bed
as dining options in the immediate area are somewhat limited.
Park City is the largest ski resort in the
country and gathers crowds to match. Skiing Park City is almost considered a
rite of passage for Utah snow sport enthusiasts. Park City is well situated to
benefit from all the lake-effect snow that makes Utah such a skier’s paradise.
The Park City town at the base is itself a quaint attraction and worth some
time to explore. Home to the world-famous Sundance film festival, this location
has plenty to see and do but the town is large enough it could be worth driving
from destination to destination in a Ford with heated seats when the
temperatures get low.
Snow Basin is a lesser-known spot that
still has a lot to offer. With a number of amenities and food options built for
the Olympics, there’s plenty to do on the mountain even between skiing the
numerous slopes and terrain types. The only downside is that there is no slope-side
accommodation, but with a Ford truck the short 10-minute drive over shouldn’t
be much of an issue.
If you need a vehicle that can get you to the slopes, check out our lineup at Westland Ford.
With the recent changeover from the Ford National Body Shop Network to the Ford Certified Collision Network in the United States, several auto body shops and mechanics must reapply for certification in order to take advantage of the new program. Luckily, with several local, certified shops in the vicinity, drivers can get exactly what they need from quality, trusted Ford-certified mechanics.
For example: If your prized F-150 is
involved in a\ fender bender on the interstate and you are in desperate need of
an original equipment manufacturer, you can call your nearest Ford-certified
expert and be on your way in no time with repairs you can trust.
According to the official press
release, The Ford Certified Collision Network offers repair instructions, what
you need to know about vehicle inspections, and certification. Other features
include “performance metrics and proper repair verification.” Another exciting
feature of the Ford Certified Collision Network is a collision repair hotline
available to certified shops in the network. There are additional certification
options for mechanics and auto pros who are looking for something more as you
can choose to level up on advanced driver assistance systems and electric
Ford Certified Collision Network shops and additional resources can be found at collision.ford.com. Ford is currently accepting applications for certification. Here at Westland Ford, we are ready to align our service department with these new guidelines to provide the best service to our customers.

Getting the perfect combination of power and luxury has never been easier in a Ford pickup truck. The American automaker recently announced that the F-150 Raptor’s popular powertrain will now come standard on the premium Limited trim level.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor engine is a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 model that will give the Limited model the ability to produce 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Along with this powerful powertrain, the Limited will also be the only Ford F-150 to boast a dual-exhaust system. With this engine, there’s no doubt that the 2019 F-150 Limited model will be able to complete nearly any task with ease.
Along with the Raptor engine, the Limited trim will also come with a variety of innovative features. An integrated trailer brake controller comes standard, along with a 360-degree camera with a split-view display that helps you hook up your trailer. You will also have the option of adding Pro Trailer Backup Assist.
Inside the Limited, you will have access to the FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem, which allows up to 10 devices to access the truck’s Wi-Fi hotspot with ease. You can also opt for a new Camel Back two-tone color combination that also gives you heated, ventilated, and massaging leather front seats, plus genuine ash swirl wood trim and aluminum-wrapped bezels.
Pricing for the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited has yet to be announced, so make sure you check back with Westland Ford in the future to learn more.
