Visit Berge Ford at US60 and Mesa Drive for a look at the American icon, the Shelby GT Mustang, or have your Ford truck "lifted" and experience the Berge Ford difference. And coming soon is the state-of-the-art SanTan Motorplex near the San Tan Freeway and Val Vista in Gilbert.

Since its inception in the early 1960s, the Ford Mustang has been the ultimate car for muscle car drivers. It combines speed, agility, handling, and an incredibly enduring sporty design. Just a couple of years ago Ford automotive engineers redesigned their Mustangs to become as retro to the original 1960s look as possible. With today’s modern technology, such as air bags, computer chips, abs brakes, etc., the car has the look and feel of the original yet they have every one of the latest technology add-ons possible.

Enter 2006 and The Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 is also back by popular demand. The GT Shelby with its icon Cobra snake emblem on the grill has always been considered what’s put the “muscle” in the muscle car of the Ford Mustang line. Ford Racing Performance Group has supplied its Power Pack to add 25 horsepower and 10 lb. feet of torque to the 4.6 liter V8 engine. The GT looks like it did back in the ‘60s with its unmistakable striping and design. And as of this month Berge Ford of Mesa will have this American icon on the showroom floor.

Located at 460 E. Auto Center Drive in Mesa (US 60 and Mesa Drive), Berge Ford has proudly stocked and shown everything from family cars to SUVs and now the Shelby GT is about to enter the showroom. Even if the Shelby GT and Cobra are the fastest Mustangs ever made they may not be for everyone. But you’ve got to come down to Berge Ford and just “see” this amazing piece of Detroit muscle. The Ford Mustang has become an American icon, right up there with Mom and apple pie. Sitting behind the wheel of this beautiful sports car will undoubtedly make you want to take it on the road. But even the standard Ford Mustangs have a lot of power for the punch. And you can’t beat the retro ‘60s Mustang design.

Also new at Berge Ford is the option to have your Ford truck “lifted”. The lifted truck raises your Ford by 6 or 7 inches and has never been available without voiding the warranty, but now you can exclusively at Berge Ford! There’s a lot to be said about the quality of service and the selection you get at Berge Ford. Their customer service and sales staff are courteous and mindful of your budget and what you’d like to get for the money. The service department at Berge Ford is renowned for quality service and on-time expectations. Family owned and operated since 1944 Berge Ford of Mesa has been an East Valley landmark for over 60 years. There’s a reason why businesses make it for such a long period of time while others fall by the wayside. Come visit Berge Ford today at U.S. 60 and Mesa Drive or call (480) 497-1111 and experience for yourself the Berge Ford difference!

New on the horizon in auto dealerships is the up and coming SanTan Motorplex. Scheduled to open later this year or early next, this state-of-the-art facility will be the largest automall in the state of Arizona. Located on 120 acres near the intersections of the San Tan Freeway and Val Vista Drive in Gilbert, this new mall will carry big brand cars such as Buick, Pontiac, Hyundai, GMC, Ford, Suzuki, and Saturn. It’s always exciting to anticipate the arrival of new car dealerships because they usually mean great grand opening deals in a state-of-the-art facility, not to mention a boon for the local economy. All good things to know when you’re On The Road...
