Featured Vehicle – 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

ASFL - 2017 Ford F-150 RaptorAll Star Ford Lincoln loves keeping our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Before you know it, all of the 2017 vehicle models will be coming out and we will be saying goodbye to the 2016s. Introducing the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor!

While many details are still guarded, the second-generation truck will launch in autumn 2016 as a 2017 model under the new Ford Performance banner. So it’s just called the F-150 Raptor now. It’s also more thoroughly engineered as a special vehicle unto itself; Ford has given it a dedicated chassis and power train to go with the special bodywork.

The Raptor’s new boxed steel frame is reinforced from the normal F-150’s and will come in two sizes:

  • The sportier 133-inch-wheelbase SuperCab
  • The roomier 145-inch SuperCrew

Despite the beefier frame, the new truck’s aluminum body, as well as the composite hood and front ­fenders, helps trim 500 pounds from its pred­ecessor’s curb weight.

The 2017 Raptor is EcoBoost only and the first recipient of a second-generation 3.5-liter V-6 with twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection. Ford says the high-powered EcoBoost engines it develops for sports-car racing influenced some of the production V-6’s improvements, including a new aluminum block and updates to the fuel system, cylinder heads, and internals. To further improve airflow, the high-output engine exhales through a true dual-exhaust system with twin outlets notched in the rear bumper. The Raptor’s new turbo six will be more efficient and soundly trump the V-8’s 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque.

Coupled with the Raptor’s engine will be the first application of Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission and a new four-wheel-drive transfer case, which will work with a terrain-mode system to configure the truck for varying conditions (mud, snow, rocks, etc.). Controlled via steering-wheel buttons and a menu, the system will tailor the characteristics of the engine, drivetrain, stability control, and more to help weekend warriors get the most from their Raptors without rolling them into the bayou.

All of this means nothing off-road, however, without a proper suspension. New components are particularly robust and wider than before, with monstrous aluminum control arms up front, specially tuned springs (coils in front, leafs in back), and 3.0-inch internal-bypass Fox Racing shocks. The new Raptor will have 17-inch wheels with 35-inch-tall BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2s. This will give a much smoother, more composed ride.

10 Ideas for Summer Fun

Here in South Louisiana, we know how excruciating the heat can get outside during the summer months. You don’t want the kids to go outside and overheat, but they can’t stay cooped up inside all day without you going crazy! So we have complied a list of some ideas for indoor and outdoor summer fun!

Visit Your Local Park

Visiting your local park for the day is such an easy way to have fun with the kiddos and not shell out any big bucks for amusement rides or park food. Simply pack lunch, a few snacks, and sunscreen. Some local parks also have a water park area so on a hot day your kiddos will love to play in the water! Just make sure to bring towels and extra clothes!

Water Balloons - ASDCJR, ASFL, Scion

Have a Water Balloon Fight

Having a water balloon fight is an awesome way to get friends and neighbors involved! If your kiddos are too young/small to participate in the water balloon fight, get a kiddy pool, fill it with water and balloons and let them pop the balloons with their hands; they’ll have a ball!

Build a Fort in the Living Room

Growing up we all used to make forts in our living rooms. Now it is your turn to teach your kiddos how to make the perfect living room fort! Drape some old sheets over kitchen chairs or your couches. Put some sleeping bags and pillows inside and you are set! Eat dinner, watch movies or tell spooky stories! Whatever you do in your living room fort will sure to be some amazing memories!

Have a Luau in the Backyard

Invite friends, co-workers, family and neighbors over for a luau! Have activities such as limbo, make your own totem pole, and a pineapple eating contest! This is a fun way to get family and friends together. The kids can play and the parents and friends can visit! It’s a win-win!

Hold a Car Wash

Park your car in the driveway and let your child give it a good scrub with a pot of water and sponge or with the garden hose. Get the whole family involved for added fun!

Slip N’ Slide

Slip N’ Slides are such an easy way for the kids to have fun and stay cool! Invite friends and neighbors over to enjoy the fun and create so many memories! Make sure the kiddos stay hydrated and reapply sunscreen!

Play Local Tourists

Learn more about your city’s history, local shops and new restaurants. You can ask friends and family for new and exciting places to go around town, or use Virtual Tourist to help you along the way!

Start a Craft Class

Most crafts stores — including chains like Michaels, A. C. Moore, and Hobby Lobby — offer hands-on activities just for kids such as scrapbooking, box decorating, bead stringing, as well as projects using clay, pipe cleaners, and more! Some classes are free; others require a nominal fee — typically $5 or less. For more information about classes, visit Michaels or Hobby Lobby, you can visit your local craft store!

Paint Party

Get huge canvases or and old piece of cardboard and set it up outside for the kiddos to paint on. Do it in the grass so you will not have to worry about paint stains on the concrete. Hang the finished painting to dry then display it in your child’s room or throughout the house!

Twister Shaving Cream - ASAG, ASC, ASCN, ASDCJR, ASF, ASFL, ASH

Play Twister with Colored Shaving Cream

If you have Twister on hand, this is a fun way to spice the game up! The kids will love it and it is so funny watching everyone slip around! Purchase multiple cans of shaving cream and food coloring. Simply empty the contents of the shaving cream into a bucket, drop as many drops as you want of the food coloring and mix it together. Make sure to keep all four of the colors in separate buckets. Once all of the colors are mixed, scoop out a blob of colored shaving cream onto the correct dot on the Twister board. Then you are ready to play Twister! The food coloring will stain your clothing, so make sure to wear old clothes!

All of these activities are inexpensive and a sure way to make the summer much more fun!
