The first day of school approaches, and we know plenty of Pennsylvanians are shopping for Ford cars and SUVs to make school life easier. Seeking a roomy, powerful vehicle that can ferry items to your college student’s dorm room or take the youngsters to football practice? Or maybe you want something compact and fuel efficient for cruising around campus and trips back home for the holidays? Whatever your requirements, set your smartphone navigation to “Ford dealership near me,” and Manderbach Ford will deliver.

The Ford C-Max Hybrid is a rare breed, combining excellent gas mileage with class-leading horsepower and passenger space. And those aren’t the only things the Ford C-Max Hybrid does well. This five-passenger wagon also looks great on the outside, handles exceptionally well, and offers up terrific sightlines thanks to its elevated driver’s seat. It’s the ideal car for collegians, but it’s not the only great choice at our local Ford dealership. The Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus are also well worth a look, for many of the same reasons.

For those of our customers with needs requiring a larger Ford vehicle, we offer several appealing choices. Test drive a Ford Escape near Reading, PA, and you’ll see within seconds that this crossover SUV ably blends a car-like driving experience with plentiful cargo space and storage features. These characteristics make the Ford Escape easy to load/unload and easy to drive. Another good choice is the larger Ford Explorer, which delivers power, comfort, and plenty of cargo space with its third-row seat folded down. And for the ultimate people/gear mover, it’s tough to beat the Ford Expedition, a full-size SUV in every sense of the term.

Put these vehicles on your back to school “to-do” list and visit our nearby Ford dealer for a test drive!
