We arrived and had a breakfast of champions, chocolate biscuits and coffee. And then, we were privileged enough to see the new and fabulous Ford GTC, the dominating Ford Mustang and the impressive Focus RS edition!
There was then a top secret chat from the product team at Ford about the future of product lines of the cars and vans with some exciting changes to come. Duncan from the BVRLA gave a talk about what the they do which is to provide the industry standard which protects you, the driver and allows us to offer the best and safest services possible.
Four road drives were included in the day. We chose to do: The Ford Edge, Transit Sport Van, Focus ST and a LWB Van. The luxurious new Ford Edge comes with many impressive features such as internal computer and such. Additionally, it comes with deluxe heated seats and a remarkable seat cooling feature which in this weather we feel, would not get much use.
We also test drove the new Transit Sport van. It was so flash, I forgot I was sat in a van! The Transit Sport is very impressive for a van coming with all the internal tech like Bluetooth and reversing cameras as standard.
We then did some off road driving in the striking Ford Ranger. It was thoroughly put through its paces going up steep inclines, auto-breaking down some sheer drops and driving through water with ease! Was such an exciting activity that really showcased the capabilities of the vehicle.
It was a great day, great fun and we learned a lot of useful information. Keep an eye on social media for more pics and videos of the day.
