F-Series and Fusion Lead Best Ford March Since 2006

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Ford reported its best March retail sales results since 2006, with 244,167 vehicles sold, including 166,030 retail sales, marking a 3 percent increase in both categories.

As always, the F-Series was a key factor in Ford’s industry-leading performance, with 70,940 vehicles sold for a 5 percent increase. This was one of only four times the F-Series topped the 70,000-vehicle sales mark and its highest March sales volume since 2008.

The Ford Fusion also had a strong showing, setting a new all-time monthly record since its introduction in 2005 with 32,963 vehicles sold. This marked a 9 percent increase over March 2013 and a whopping 22 percent increase in western USA, where the Fusion sells like hot cakes.

“March sales turned noticeably higher mid-month and finished strong,” said John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service. “Fusion set an all-time record in March, as overall retail sales in the West continued to expand at the fastest rate in the nation – including California being up 32 percent. F-Series also had a very strong month, as did Lincoln MKZ.”

Ford Plans 17 New Vehicles for Middle East and Africa

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Ford announced that it is bringing some of our favorite homemade vehicles and more to new regions of the world. Now that it has a solid foot in the Asian market (and the North American market, but that goes without saying), Ford sees the Middle East and Africa has the next big automotive growth markets.

The company plans to launch at least 17 new or refreshed vehicles in the Middle East and Africa over the next 24 months.

“Ford and Lincoln sales have grown 60 percent in the Middle East over the past four years,” said Stephen Odell, president of Ford of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We expect total industry sales in the combined Middle East and Africa region to increase nearly 40 percent to around 5.5 million units by 2020.”

To go along with the announcement, Ford debuted two all-new vehicles for the Middle East—the Ford Fusion and the Ford EcoSport. These vehicles offer an impressive combination of affordability, fuel economy, and driver-assistance technologies.

But if you were worried about having to move to the Middle East to get your hands on a Ford Fusion, fret not. We’ve got one of the latest models right here at Hassett Automotive.

Each and every year Kelley Blue Book takes a good hard look at all the new sedans that have recently been introduced and compiles a list of the “10 Best Sedans Under $25,000”. It is a huge honor to make this list, and this year we are happy to say that the 2013 Ford Fusion has snatched the number five spot!

According to, “Completely redesigned for 2013, the Ford Fusion mixes a stunning sense of style with impressive dynamics, and tosses in a roomy, well-appointed passenger compartment for good measure.

Fusion Tops Best Cars for Families List

Monday, April 1st, 2013

In such a competitive and chaotic automotive industry, it’s nice knowing there’s a car we can always count on—the 2013 Ford Fusion. The Fusion won not one but two separate awards in U.S. News and World Report’s 2013 Best Cars for Families findings. The annual awards from U.S. News result from in-depth analysis of cars from various segments. After examination, U.S. News determines the best in each category for families, based on quality, space, and family-friendly features.

This year, two models of the 2013 Ford Fusion topped the list. In the Best Midsize Cars for Families segment, the Fusion took first place, and in the Best Hybrid Cars for Families—you guessed it—the Fusion Hybrid was top dog. U.S. News also recently ranked the Fusion as the Best Car for the Money in 2013. The Fusion and Fusion Hybrid offer a plethora of reasons for families to start driving these Blue Oval vehicles, but in particular, U.S. News commended the 47 mpg combined for the Fusion Hybrid and the deep trunk for the regular Fusion, both of which are very important for families to consider when shopping for new cars.

Want to see for yourself? Stop by Hassett Automotive today and take the all-new Ford Fusion or Ford Fusion Hybrid out for a test drive!

Ford Takes Passenger Comfort to the Next Level

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

These days, car manufactures are always trying to make drivers more comfortable by pampering them with luxurious features such as leather wrapped steering wheels, heated seats, ambient lighting, or dual-zone climate control – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! In fact, most new Ford vehicles have those features. But Ford has taken driver and passenger comfort to the next level in their new vehicles by only using safe materials, and adding an air filter that blocks harmful airborne particles from entering the car.

In a press release written by Ford not too long ago, they said, “Ford has begun requiring that more than 100 materials and components meet stringent standards to minimize potential allergy issues on the new Fusion and other Ford vehicles.” The materials that Ford is staying away from are things like latex, chrome, nickel, and any other material that people could be allergic too.

As for the cabin air filter, you’ll be glad Ford decided to start putting these in their new cars the next time you get behind a semi truck that is spewing black smoke. According to Ford, “Cabin air filters improve driving comfort by reducing particle concentration, improve cleanliness and protect climate control components from particle deposits. These filters also capture soot, smog and tobacco smoke.

If you’re interested in test driving a new Ford and experiencing these new features first hand, give us a call or stop by Hassett Automotive today.

As Long Island’s #1 Volume Ford Lincoln dealer, and ten-time consecutive winner of the manufacturer’s prestigious President’s Award, Hassett Ford of Wantagh has certainly seen its share of exciting new car introductions during its decades in business. But seldom has customer response been more ‘electric’ than since the recent arrival of four particular models: the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and Energi, plus the C-Max Hybrid and Energi.

“Honestly, we’re in overdrive trying to meet the demand,” admits Lou Evans, General Sales Manager at Hassett Ford of Wantagh with a smile. “Both the hybrid and plug-in models are practically ‘flying’ off our lot, and we currently have 20 hybrids on order. From the incredible mileage and fuel-savings they deliver to the eco-friendly operation, it’s clear our clients are really enthusiastic about going ‘green’.

While sharing numerous attributes — all are built to comfortably seat five, for instance — there are distinct differences/benefits to choosing a hybrid or plug-in model, as well as picking a Fusion or C-Max. For example, both Energi cars feature electricity + gas power and feature an astounding 100 combined mileage equivalence rating (108 city/92 highway) to the lower, yet still impressive 47/47 for the hybrid models.

Every Long Islander suffered in one way or another from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, including all of us at Hassett Automotive of Wantagh. The one heartening aspect of this deadly storm was the way people across the Island came together to help each other get through those cold, dark days. Of course, our hearts go out to those still suffering in Sandy’s aftermath, along with hopes for a quick recovery.

At Hassett, we’re making it easier for our customers, and others, who experienced damage to, or the total loss of, their car, truck, or SUV during the storm — some suffered multiple vehicle losses —to get back on the road. We call it our “Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief” programs, and they’ve been set up to make it more affordable to replace vehicles that are no longer operable.

“Anyone who’s been affected can get immediate assistance at Hassett, “ says Lou Evans, General Sales Manager for Hassett Ford of Wantagh. “This is over and above all the other incentives we always offer. “If your vehicle was ruined by Hurricane Sandy, you can come into Hassett now to receive up to an extra $1,000 in disaster relief bonus cash on any new Ford or Lincoln in our huge inventory. For those who want to purchase or lease a new or certified pre-owned Subaru, we’re offering $500 in disaster relief. And all our vehicles are available for immediate delivery. We know we can’t undo all of what this terrible storm did, but we can make replacing your vehicle easier, and less expensive.” (more…)
