Ford enthusiasts rejoice—the Montreal Auto Show is back once again in 2016! While there are plenty of seriously spectacular sights and sounds at the show, the best reasons to check it out are most definitely the Ford-related ones. From must-do test-drives to contests and our eco-conscious vehicles, we give you six reasons to head on down to spend time with all the other Canadian Ford fans out there!

1. It’s where the 2017 Ford Escape and 2016 Ford Focus RS are making their Canadian debuts!

Sporting an unstoppable, athletic new style, Ford’s adventurous 2017 Escape is all about going further when it comes to efficiency and performance thanks to innovative start-stop technology and our EcoBoost® engines. Likewise, our 2016 Focus RS will be turning heads and getting plenty of attention thanks to its unique design and truly eye-popping front fascia and grille, as well as standard premium painted alloy wheels. Add to the mix a cutting-edge 10-speaker Sony audio system, and you can see why these two will be showstoppers.

2. There’s a chance to get behind the wheel of the Ford Explorer Platinum!

Hey—there’s a reason it was voted one of the Show’s Top 13 Favourites to Test Drive. It’s about time you find out why.

3. There are sweet, sweet Ford prizes to be won!

Did someone say a completely restored ’67 Mustang or a 2016 Mustang Fastback EcoBoost® Premium valued at $40,000 and $45,000 respectively? That’s definitely enough to want to learn more about how to enter! The money raised will be donated to the Montreal Automobile Dealers Corporation’s Foundation to support various initiatives to help kids stay in school. How great is that?!

4. Ford’s eco-conscious vehicles will make other brands green with envy!

Want to test-drive and learn more about hybrid and electric vehicles? Good thing Ford will have three available, including the Focus EV, the Fusion Energi, and the Ford C-MAX Energi (that’s more hybrid/electric vehicles than any other brand at the show!).

5. Ford’s performance row is what dreams are made of!

Don’t miss Ford’s performance vehicles, lined up at the Ford exhibit on level 2 for your viewing pleasure – now’s your chance to take a selfie with the 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang and the 2016 Ford Focus RS…dreamy!
