Whether you drive long distances or only need a car to run errands, you need a vehicle you can rely on. Ford and GMC vehicles offer a number of reliability and safety features to ensure your peace of mind.

  • Ford models are available with the brand-exclusive MyKey® feature, which allows you to configure your vehicle's keys or control your vehicle's safety settings. A similar, but less impressive feature is available with select GMC models.
  • The Personal Safety System™ is exclusive to Ford models.
  • Also exclusive to Ford models is the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, which steps in after an accident by alerting emergency services for assistance.


On both Ford and GMC models, you'll get the same impressive warranties, including a 3-year / 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year / 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Fans of diesel engines, however, will want to select a Ford pickup truck. Ford pickup trucks that are equipped with a PowerStroke diesel engine will get an unsurpassable 5-year / 100,000-mile warranty.

Expect state-of-the-art technology within Ford and GMC models. Although both brands have an impressive lineup of features, you'll find that Ford has spent more time on taking modern technology offerings to the next level.

  • Only Ford vehicles are available with SYNC® Connect with FordPass™. This app lets you access a number of features to make your daily drive a breeze.
  • A Sony® audio system with 12 speakers is available on certain Ford models. You won't find this system on any GMC vehicles.
  • Another feature exclusive to Ford models is the MyFord™ app. This allows you to monitor your vehicle from your smartphone with ease.
 Ford Performance Lineup 


Both Ford and GMC have won many awards over the years, but the most honorable comes from the Ethisphere Institute. Ford Motor Company was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies in 2017. In addition, U.S. News and World Report also recognized the 2017 Expedition and F-150 as models that allow you to receive the most for your money.
