Ford SUV Sales Start Strong in 2016

Ford SUV sales

The year has only just begun and Ford SUV sales are already up. In fact, January was the strongest year start for SUVs since 2004. In addition, with the popularity of the Ford Transit, van sales have their best start in 31 years.

“For Ford, overall transaction prices were up $1,800 in January – almost three times more than the overall industry average – driven largely by strong customer demand, especially for our SUVs and F-Series pickups,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service, in a statement.

Here at Mama’s Used Cars, while we don’t sell new cars, we have a large inventory of pre-owned Ford vehicles that is constantly changing. Many of these cars, trucks, and SUVs come certified pre-owned, which means you’ll get a warranty and a lot of peace of mind with your purchase.

If you’re looking for one of the best SUVs, crossovers, or pickups on the market, then Ford is a great choice. If you’re looking for a specific model, year, or specific features, let us know what you need, and we’ll help you find it.

We’re excited to see such a great start to 2016 and can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.

2016 Honda Pilot Earns 2015 Top Safety Pick+ Rating from IIHS

2015 Top Safety Pick+

The 2016 Honda Pilot has earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), once again showing that Honda knows exactly what it’s doing when it comes to automotive safety. Then again, we already knew that from all the Hondas that have come and gone through the years at Mama’s Used Cars.

The mid-size family SUV earned the highest possible score of “Good” in all categories, including side, roof strength, head restraint, moderate overlap front, and the tricky small overlap front crashworthiness evaluations.

The optional Honda Sensing suite is what allowed the Pilot to earn that extra + rating, rated “superior” by the IIHS. It combines a windshield-mounted camera and radar behind the grille to provide collision mitigation braking, lane keeping assistance, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation, and forward collision warning.

“The Pilot demonstrates Honda’s commitment to achieving the highest levels of safety performance,” said IIHS president Adrian Lund. “The Pilot’s crashworthiness ratings set a high standard, and its optional front crash prevention system will help drivers avoid some kinds of crashes to begin with.”
