Featured Vehicle – 2017 Ford Escape

ASF - 2017 Ford Escape

All Star Ford loves keeping our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Before you know it, all of the 2017 vehicle models will be coming out and we will be saying goodbye to the 2016s. Introducing the newly refreshed 2017 Ford Escape!

The 2017 Ford Escape brings is equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine, as well as a revised version of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost. The 1.5-liter EcoBoost will be standard in the SE and Titanium trim levels, and although the numbers aren’t yet set in stone, it is projected to produce 180 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. The optional twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost has received new pistons and a redesigned exhaust manifold for improved efficiency and refinement; it is rated at 245 horsepower and an impressive 275 lb-ft. Returning for duty basically unchanged is the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which will be available only in the base S trim. All three engines are mated to a six-speed automatic.

The 2017 Ford Escape has the latest generation of Ford’s Sync Connect technology, which makes its worldwide debut in the 2017 Escape. The new Sync Connect allows owners to communicate with their Escape via a smartphone app, performing remote start and locking/unlocking operations. The app also permits owners to remotely schedule future starting times and to check the amount of fuel left in the tank, as well as receive vehicle reports concerning future service appointments such as oil changes. Additionally, owners will have access to a vehicle-locator function to help if they seem to have misplaced their Escape. The Connect features are available in vehicles equipped with the new Sync 3 system, which has better voice recognition, a more intuitive graphic interface, and faster performance.

Auto stop-start is standard on EcoBoost-equipped 2017 Escapes. The stop-start feature improves fuel economy in stop-and-go traffic by four to six percent! The auto stop-start features brings with it a unique battery, a beefier starter motor, and an auxiliary climate-control pump to keep the cabin fresh during long stops.

Additional technology making its first appearance in an Escape includes adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning and brake pre-conditioning; lane-assist alert and active lane aid, which makes steering corrections; and enhanced parking assist, which now performs in parallel and perpendicular parking situations.

Additional features in the 2017 Ford Escape are

  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Hill-start assist
  • Automatic high beams
  • Vaunted foot-activated tailgate.

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in South Louisiana, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Visit Your Local Park

Visiting your local park for the day is such an easy way to have fun with the kiddos and not shell out any big bucks for amusement rides or park food. Simply pack lunch, a few snacks, and sunscreen. Some local parks also have a water park area so on a hot day your kiddos will love to play in the water! Just make sure to bring towels and extra clothes!

Have a Water Balloon Fight

Having a water balloon fight is an awesome way to get friends and neighbors involved! If your kiddos are too young/small to participate in the water balloon fight, get a kiddy pool, fill it with water and balloons and let them pop the balloons with their hands; they’ll have a ball!

Build a Fort in the Living Room

Growing up we all used to make forts in our living rooms. Now it is your turn to teach your kiddos how to make the perfect living room fort! Drape some old sheets over kitchen chairs or your couches. Put some sleeping bags and pillows inside and you are set! Eat dinner, watch movies or tell spooky stories! Whatever you do in your living room fort will sure to be some amazing memories!

Have a Luau in the Backyard

Invite friends, co-workers, family and neighbors over for a luau! Have activities such as limbo, make your own totem pole, and a pineapple eating contest! This is a fun way to get family and friends together. The kids can play and the parents and friends can visit! It’s a win-win!

Family Car Wash - ASAG, ASC, ASF

Hold a Car Wash

Park your car in the driveway and let your child give it a good scrub with a pot of water and sponge or with the garden hose. Get the whole family involved for added fun!

Visit an Educational Museum

Visiting an educational museum or a children’s museum is a fun way to get out of the summer heat! Museums are a great way to get your child interacting with experiments, the solar system or whatever else is at the museum. It can also give you some great home DIY project ideas to do when the museum is closed on the weekends or holidays!

Play Local Tourists

Learn more about your city’s history, local shops and new restaurants. You can ask friends and family for new and exciting places to go around town, or use Virtual Tourist to help you along the way!

Start a Craft Class

Most crafts stores — including chains like Michaels, A. C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby — offer hands-on activities just for kids such as scrapbooking, box decorating, bead stringing, as well as projects using clay, pipe cleaners, and more! Some classes are free; others require a nominal fee — typically $5 or less. For more information about classes, visit Michaels or Hobby Lobby, you can visit your local craft store!

Paint Party

Get huge canvases or and old piece of cardboard and set it up outside for the kiddos to paint on. Do it in the grass so you will not have to worry about paint stains on the concrete. Hang the finished painting to dry then display it in your child’s room or throughout the house!

Twister Shaving Cream - ASAG, ASC, ASCN, ASDCJR, ASF, ASFL, ASH

Play Twister with Colored Shaving Cream

If you have Twister on hand, this is a fun way to spice the game up! The kids will love it and it is so funny watching everyone slip around! Purchase multiple cans of shaving cream and food coloring. Simply empty the contents of the shaving cream into a bucket, drop as many drops as you want of the food coloring and mix it together. Make sure to keep all four of the colors in separate buckets. Once all of the colors are mixed, scoop out a blob of colored shaving cream onto the correct dot on the Twister board. Then you are ready to play Twister! The food coloring will stain your clothing, so make sure to wear old clothes!

All of these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!

Acts of Service

Let’s be honest, what Mom has time to detail their car with the crazy busy schedule they live day-to-day? So on Mother’s Day, take your Mom’s car and detail it for her!
