Ford Environmentalism | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Just Capital recently released its 2022 list of the Most JUST Companies and ranked Ford No. 1 among all automakers and partsmakers. Ford was tops in its industry thanks to, among other things, its commitment to delivering awesome new electrified vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning.

Ford earned the No. 1 spot in its field and No. 20 overall on the 2022 Most JUST Companies list. Among the reasons, Just Capital praised Ford for recycling 90% of the waste it generates and pulling 10% of all its electricity from renewable resources.

“At Ford, our goal is to create a positive impact on people and the planet. Because the future of this company centers on a purpose bigger than building vehicles,” said Mary Wroten, director of global sustainability and ESG at Ford Motor Company.

Part of that goal includes a $50 billion investment in electric vehicles through 2026, which is already paying dividends with the likes of the all-new F-150 Lightning. Expect Ford to launch even more exciting EVs in the months and years ahead, making it easier than you could imagine to go electric and cut your carbon footprint.

Tips for Hauling with Your New Ford F-150

Hauling With F-150 | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

If you’re looking for a truck that does some heavy-duty hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is unsurpassed. The new 2022 Ford F-150 offers best-in-class towing up to 14,000 pounds[1] and best-in-class payload up to 3,325 pounds.[2] But even with all that power, you’ll need to know a few tips for using your truck properly.

Do your research

While those max numbers are certainly impressive, every version of the F-150 offers slightly different capacities based on its engine, cab style, bed size, and so on. Before you hook up a trailer or put something heavy in the truck bed, make sure you check your owner’s manual or doorjamb and see what you can carry.

Use the tools at your disposal

If you’re getting a new 2022 Ford F-150, towing and hauling is easy even if it’s your first time. The new F-150 offers advanced features like Smart Hitch and Smart Trailer Tow Connector, which make hooking up a trailer surprisingly easy. With available Onboard Scales, your F-150 can tell you exactly how much weight is being carried in the bed so that you don’t have to guess how close you are to maxing out on payload.

And there’s even more where that came from. The new F-150 even gives you confidence for maneuvering with a trailer attached thanks to features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and Trailer Sway Control. If you want a truck for hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is tops in more ways than one.

Check out the new F-150 at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois, and see for yourself why Ford has been the first name in all things truck for almost 50 years.

Introducing the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Mega Power Frunk

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

The 2022 F-150 Lightning is the groundbreaking new all-electric pickup truck Ford, and thanks to its lack of an engine, it comes with an exciting feature: the Mega Power Frunk.

Ford took customer feedback into consideration when designing the frunk — or front trunk — on the F-150 Lightning. Customers were eager to have a pickup truck with lockable storage, better for protecting valuables than the typical truck bed.

Ford customers wanted ample space with the F-150 Lightning, and Ford has delivered with the Mega Power Frunk. The largest front trunk of any truck in the industry, the F-150 Lightning Mega Power Frunk is designed to be asymmetrical, capable of fitting two golf bags, but it’s perfect for all kinds of luggage.

And that’s not the only way the Mega Power Frunk is super versatile. The frunk comes with four electrical outlets and two USB charging ports. It also has lights in the hood to light up the cargo space, rather than inside the frunk, to keep cargo from blocking the lights.

Ford has guaranteed that the Mega Power Frunk is as functional and convenient as possible, sporting a rubberized floor with drainage so you can easily clean out any spills. You can even access the frunk with the FordPass app on your phone, one of six different ways to open the hood of the frunk.

The Mega Power Frunk is just one of the many, many reasons to check out the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. It’ll be arriving in the spring of this year, and you can learn more about this game-changer by contacting the team at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois.

2022 Ford Mustang Adds First-Ever Stealth Edition

2022 Ford Mustang | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

The Ford Mustang is one of the most beloved cars on Earth because of its high-octane performance and stunning good looks. Mustang enthusiasts also love to customize their pony cars, and the newest special edition of the sporty coupe is one of the best options yet.

For the first time ever, you can customize your 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost® Premium model with the all-new Stealth Edition Appearance Package. The turbocharged Mustang EcoBoost® Premium model already has an impressive 310-horsepower output, and the Stealth Edition offers aggressive styling to hint to onlookers of the power underneath the hood.

The 2022 Stealth Edition Mustang comes with black pony badges, a performance rear wing, 19-inch black aluminum wheels, clear LED taillamp covers, and black mirror caps. These details pair with your choice of four stylish colors: Shadow Black, Carbonized Grey, Dark Matter, and Atlas Blue.

“The black accents really give the car a whole new persona, sinister and sporty all at once,” said Ford Mustang Brand Marketing Manager Jim Owens. “Naturally, the package needed the right name. Stealth Edition says it all.”

But beyond the first-ever Stealth Edition Appearance Package, 2022 should be a big year for the Ford Mustang and its fans. New additions to the lineup include the Ice White Edition, the first-ever Coastal Limited Edition, and the option to pair the California Special with the GT Performance Package.

Ford Confirms Bronco Raptor Debut for 2022

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Nothing screams adventure and excitement better than the Ford Bronco, and Ford recently revealed a small sneak peek into a Bronco special edition model that will elevate the excitement and enhance the adventure. Ford announced that it will unveil the Ford Bronco Raptor in 2022, taking its Built Wild™ SUV up to an entirely new level.

A short teaser video contains a close-up of the grille that contains all-caps Ford lettering, the Raptor logo, and a bright Code Orange exterior. Other than what we see in the video, the details about the exciting Bronco Raptor are sparse, but we can speculate about what the Bronco Raptor will have to offer based on the features of the Ford F-150 Raptor. Distinct features of the high-performance variant of the F-150 include a higher-output engine and FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, so we can probably see those translated over to the Bronco Raptor as well.

Ford says it will reveal the Bronco Raptor sometime in 2022, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.

As we eagerly wait for more details about the Bronco Raptor, we have received some updates about the 2022 Ford Bronco’s color choices. As a callback to the Mallard Green paint featured on first-generation Bronco models created in the 1970s, the new 2022 Ford Bronco will be available in Eruption Green Metallic. The Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat will also be new for the 2022 model year.
