Take a Smart Road Trip with Ford This Summer

Take a Smart Road Trip with Ford This Summer

The weather is warming up, and that means it’s time to plan a summer getaway. A Ford SUV is the perfect vehicle for your journey, and we have a variety of models to help you travel in style. But before you hop into your Edge, Escape or Explorer, let’s start your trip planning with these smart tips:

Be Prepared
When it comes to getting your vehicle ready for the road, we say: better safe than sorry. The FordPass™ app for Apple and Android devices makes it easy to plan your pre-trip tune-up. You can use the app to schedule your service appointment a few days before the big trip. And with the FordPay feature, you can store your payment info and instantly pay for your service. This way, all you’ll have to do the day-of is pack the trunk, grab a coffee and be on your way. Talk about being prepared!

Be In-Tune
Whether you’re traveling solo or with a group, nothing makes a road trip more enjoyable than the perfect playlist. The 2018 Edge, Escape and Explorer all feature SYNC® 3 technology. With this easy-to-use, responsive voice-activated system, your Spotify app will be in your vehicle and at your fingertips (literally).

Be Well-Packed
Don’t be the one who buckles up and says, “I feel like I forgot something.” Clothes, shoes and toiletries are easy to remember, but there are many useful travel items that we often forget. When you’re packing for your next getaway, we recommend including the following essentials:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Laundry bag
  • First aid kit
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Lip balm
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Sunglasses
  • Car charger (your new Ford SUV has USB ports in the front and back seats!)
