When It Comes to Performance and Design In a Luxury Vehicle, No Other Challenger Can Keep Pace With Lincoln’s 2017 MKZ.

August 31st, 2016

Purchasing an automobile— especially a high-end, luxury model— is hardly an impulse buy.  Savvy consumers do their research, explore their options, and take the time to compare every comfort and performance feature fully, before judging the value of an investment that they will live with everyday… and for some time. It’s no different here at Hassett Lincoln of Wantagh. We make a point of understanding, first hand, what our competitors are bringing to the sales table. We frequently test-drive the same vehicles that our customers might consider in the luxury class. Our goal has always been to stay ahead of the curve, and comfortably out front, in terms of the factors that sway decisions when comparison shopping. If we wouldn’t choose Lincoln, why would a savvy buyer?

Take the 2017 MKZ. Consistently, a leader in its class, the new MKZ continues to outdistance its luxury rivals. Consider the entire package— drivability, style, innovation and comfort— and you can understand why the new Lincoln MKZ is pulling away from its closest challengers.

Just look at the MKZ performance options and capabilities. Available in both a 2.0- and 3.0-litre, turbocharged V-6— with Ecoboost— this engine delivers more HP, more torque, and better gas mileage than any “also-ran” in the field. If you love to drive, you’ll love the MKZ. Experience the ease of handling through the vehicle’s dynamic torque vectoring, and sport-tuned suspension systems… the streamlined, fuel-saving ride from MKZ’s sleeker lines, and advanced, aerodynamic grill shutter action… and the ease and close proximity of the center-console-mounted, push-button, automatic shift controls.

In terms of style, MKZ takes a back seat to no one. Newly designed for 2017, this trendsetter incorporates mainstream features, like the retractable, panoramic glass roof, the innovative, adaptive LED tracking lamps, and the stunning range of attention-grabbing wheel-cover options. Naturally, leather abounds throughout the stunning, roomy interior. And, more subtle design nuances, like detection illumination and interior-control remote activation simply add more firepower to the vehicle’s resume.

If you crave technology, then slide behind the wheel of MKZ. Wrapped in luxury, you’ll immediately be drawn to Lincoln’s remarkable, voice-activated, SYNC 3® communications center— phone, entertainment, and navigation— there at your fingertips. If you can briefly stop interacting with SYNC 3®, you’ll be struck by the silence. That’s MKZ’s remarkable noise-canceling technology. Then there’s the long list of driving gadgetry, convenience features, and safety sensors— designed and incorporated to make your ride incredibly stress-free… and so very cool. When you come in, ask for a full demonstration. Even the most jaded techies are impressed.

To review… given the stable of luxury cars with the reputation, and the window-sticker math, that might be mentioned in Lincoln’s MKZ class… the choice seems clear to us. Our opinion may be a bit skewed, but at least we’ve done our homework. If you’re comparison-shopping a luxury vehicle, make it a point to stop by Hassett Ford, Lincoln, Subaru of Wantagh. We’ll gladly share the results of all our test-driving experiences… and save you the trouble.

How Hybrids Work: Eco-Friendly Technology Explained

June 8th, 2016

“Hybrid” is a term frequently used in the auto industry, but not every car buyer truly understands what it means. That’s why we’ve put together a post on how hybrids work, explaining the basics and the advantages of this eco-friendly design.

According to the EPA, a hybrid is any model that combines an electric motor with a gasoline engine. Not only does this generally increase fuel economy, but hybrids can also increase power—one of the reasons they were actually invented.

Summer will be here before you know it, which means that it’s almost time to head to the beach. Fortunately, nearby Long Island has some of the most beautiful beaches and shorelines on the East Coast. Here is a short list of Long Island beaches.

Main Beach. There’s a reason that this shoreline is named “Main Beach”. It’s one of the most popular destinations on Long Island, drawing out locals and celebrities alike.

Coopers Beach. Thanks to its soft and beautiful shoreline, Coopers Beach is considered by many to be the most beautiful beach on the entire East Coast, making it the perfect place for a leisurely stroll or swim.

Garvey’s Point. Garvey’s Point may not have soft, beautiful sand like many of the other beaches on our list. However, what separates Garvey’s Point from them is the possibility of discovering ancient fossils in this area.

Montauk. If you prefer action-packed surfing over a leisurely stroll on the beach, than the shores around Montauk are perfect for you. You will be able to find some seriously wicked waves in this area of the Long Island shore.

May 10th, 2016

Ford Transit emergency response vehicleThe Salvation Army’s motto is “Doing the most good”. Ford is dedicated to a similar mission. Therefore, it only seems natural that these two groups should come together to help out those in need. Ford donated a Ford Transit van to the Salvation Army of Eastern Michigan.

The fully-equipped 2016 Ford Transit 350 cargo van will assist the disaster services team of the Salvation Army in Eastern Michigan with various operations.

Ford also plans on donating another Ford transit vehicle to the Salvation Army of Kansas City for similar disaster relief efforts.

“Assisting with disaster relief is an important part of our mission to serve the communities where we live and work,” said Janet Lawson, director of the Ford Motor Company Fund. “The flexibility of the Ford Transit van makes it a great fit for The Salvation Army’s emergency response fleet.”

When it comes to lending a hand, or a van, to the community, Ford is ready to help!
