Although production for both vehicles is still on the horizon, anticipation is already high for the next-generation Ranger and Bronco.

It's no secret that Ford prioritizes safety, quality and sustainability - but the automaker also ensures that convenience isn't left in the dust. Through their latest partnership with Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, the Blue Oval's making it notably simpler to return loaner vehicles.
The collaboration between Ford and Panasonic utilizes a Smart Service Kiosk, enabling customers to drop off and obtain their vehicle key or receive keys for a loaner vehicle, select services from a user-friendly menu, and even complete transactions for services. The technology is the first in its industry.
“Smart Service Kiosk enables Ford customers to drop off, pick up, select and pay for their vehicle service on their time, whether it’s outside of dealership service hours or to avoid waiting in line if the service staff is busy,” Brad Brownell, the director of Ford Global Distribution Strategy, said in a Ford release.
The drop-off process shines in its efficiency. Customers need only type in standard user/vehicle information using the kiosk touchscreen (or by scanning their driver's license QR code), create a custom PIN and select from the provided list of services before leaving the key. Email confirmation includes a QR code that can be scanned for key retrieval, if necessary. When ready for pick-up, the customer scans the QR code, enters their PIN and pays any applicable service bills before receiving their key.

Winter's chill hasn't affected sales of the Ford Focus RS, which was introduced last summer. Representatives of the Blue Oval aren't fearing any impending sales freezes; if anything, they're anticipating continued success as the seasons turn warmer.
Since its debut, the RS model has sold over 3,500 units nationwide - an average of 500 vehicles monthly. Currently, its greatest popularity is in the Golden State, with 627 vehicles sold to date in California. Following suit is Michigan, Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania with unit sales of 256, 244, 230 and 192, respectively.
And buyers aren't going with the base models - the average transaction price for a domestically sold Focus RS is more than $6,000 above the base price, indicating buyers' eagerness to splurge on the bells and whistles. One example of such is the 'RS2 package,' which over 62% of buyers to-date have selected. Also scoring high is buyers' overwhelming penchant for the color gray; with 32% of the car's sales, Stealth Gray is the most popular color in the U.S.
“Sales momentum for the Focus RS has been incredible in the U.S. for the first six months,” Jessica Bishop, Focus' marketing manager of Ford North America, said of the car's success. “Uniquely for a performance vehicle, we haven’t seen any sales decline during the winter months, but rather customer interest has picked up thanks to AWD availability.” Learn more and test-drive our selection of the Focus RS at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington!
