Reasons to Buy a Dash Cam for Your Ford

Dash cams are a great innovation that help protect drivers on the road. There are plenty of reasons to buy a dash cam for your Ford, especially if you do a lot of driving in the city and want to cover your bases.

Protection against theft and vandalism

If you get a dash cam with cloud storage, it can help protect you in the event that your car is stolen. Front-facing dash cams could catch thieves and vandals in the act and be used as evidence to bring them to justice.

Helpful for car accidents

In the event of a collision, the account of events comes down to your word, the word of any other parties involved, and the word of witnesses. These accounts came sometimes vary, especially if another party is at fault and wants to shift blame to seem less culpable. One of the best reasons to buy a dash cam is to make sure that the story is straight, giving you a video of the incident that you can share with police and your insurance provider.  

These are just two of the many reasons why you may want to buy a dash cam for your Ford. If you’re looking to accessorize your new Ford, contact the team at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois.

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.
