Customers visiting Jennings Ford, part of the Jennings Motor Group this weekend, will be given the opportunity to experience at first hand the advanced range of innovative Ford technologies available across the vehicle range.

A ‘Ford Tech Live’ event, organised in conjunction with Ford Motor Company, will be taking place at Jennings Ford’s Gateshead, Stockton and Middlesbrough dealerships on Friday 16th January through to and including Sunday 18th January.

Throughout the event, customers will not only be invited to see the two latest models in the range, including the new Ford Focus and the all-new Mondeo, but they will also be able to experience a number of demonstrations highlighting the latest innovative technologies Ford has to offer.

Colin Massey, sales manager at Jennings Ford’s, Cargo Fleet Lane site in Middlesbrough, said; “We are delighted and looking forward to our forthcoming ‘Ford Tech Live’ event which will give customers the opportunity to experience at first hand a variety of informative demonstrations, covering the latest advanced technology available.”

Demonstrations will cover advanced park assist with perpendicular parking, which as a result of two additional sensors at the rear of the new Ford Focus, allows you to drive or reverse into a space to end perpendicular to the curb, in addition to the system warning drivers if cars or pedestrians are about to cross behind them when the car is in reverse; SYNC 2 8” screen and enhanced voice control, an updated version of Ford’s in-car connectivity and entertainment system offering voice control of the audio system, navigation and climate control and SYNC with Applink, which allows you to access and control your favourite App on your Smartphone via voice control, in addition to the car’s audio systems, steering wheel controls, multifunctional display and centre stack.

In addition to this, customers will also be given the opportunity to see demonstrations on Ford’s hands free tailgate, which allows you to open and close the rear hatch while your hands are full, park out assist BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross traffic alert and rear inflatable seatbelts.

Jennings Ford sells the entire range of new Ford models with everything from the Ka, Fiesta, Fiesta ST, Focus ST, C-MAX, B-MAX, Kuga, S-MAX, Galaxy and the all-new EcoSport on display and available to test drive at the Gateshead, Stockton and Middlesbrough branches.
