2014 Ford Trends Conference! #FordTX
Last week I got to spend 3 days in Detroit/Dearborn, Michigan attending the 2014 Ford Trends conference. I was so thrilled to be asked to attend and couldn’t wait to see what they had in store!
I had not been to Michigan before, but I really enjoyed my time there and the Ford people and the hotel staff were beyond nice!
I was invited by Ford to the conference and the new 2015 Ford Edge reveal!
I love these colors! I also love how sporty they look, but how comfortable they are on the inside!
The next morning we got to witness ANOTHER reveal!
This time it was the all new 2015 Fisher-Price F-150 Power Wheels! Any kid would love to have one of these, they come in several different colors and patterns, sure to please! They will be available in September, but you can pre-order them now, they retail for $349.99.
Later we were taken to the Ford World Headquarters where they taught us about innovations, and sustainability and we got to tour many of their facilities, too.
I always enjoy when we get to test drive the cars and this time was no exception I had a great time driving the Ford Transit Connect being billed as the “Unminivan”, I got to ride in a car controlled by someone 30 miles away! No lie! No one was behind the wheel!
This is how they put the car through rigorous testing faster. The pot holes they design to run the car over are very deep and they place them very close together so, it makes it hard on a human to be able to spend many hours test driving vehicles over such terrain. The next best thing? A robot being controlled 30 miles away!
We learned a lot about the Ford Transit, too:
I was surprised at how high the ceiling was inside the vehicle, so high, in fact, that there is overhead storage!
It is equipped with LED spotlights on the side view mirrors that you can use to help setup a campsite or finish a job after the sun goes down, that is a cool feature, if you ask me!
I had a fantastic time at the Ford Trends 2014 Convention and am so thankful I was able to attend and learn so much! Thanks, Ford!
