All-New 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Proves a Big Hit at Auto Moto

In its Exclusive Middle East D

KUWAIT CITY, Kuwait, January 17, 2017 – Alghanim Auto and Ford are proudly participating at the most anticipated car show event in Kuwait: Auto Moto 17. For this special occasion and for the first time ever in the Middle East, Alghanim Auto is exclusively featuring the highly awaited all-new 2017 F-150 Raptor; as part of a larger display that features other popular Ford models.

Raptor enthusiasts and Auto Moto visitors alike now have an opportunity to get a closer look at the latest generation of this highly anticipated off-road monster, featured in a rugged display inspired from none other than its proving grounds, the desert. Customers who are interested in the all-new 2017 Raptor are able to register their interest and pre-book a vehicle with any of the Alghanim Auto sales consultants present on-site during the show.

Taking place at 360 Mall till January 21st, Auto Moto has been recognized as the Annual Kuwait Motor Show, attracting a large base of car enthusiasts in Kuwait. Alghanim Auto’s participation stems from its brand philosophy to bring the latest exciting Ford products to Ford enthusiasts in Kuwait while engaging with the local community. For the duration of the show, Alghanim Auto is also extending special offers to customers interested to get into a brand new Ford.

“Alghanim Auto is committed to deliver the latest Ford products and service excellence to our customers in Kuwait, and working with Ford Middle East to bring the region’s first 2017 F-150 Raptor to our truck enthusiasts in Kuwait demonstrates just that,” said Tim Zimmerman, Vice-President, Alghanim Auto. “We are excited to be part of this year’s Auto Moto show with the latest 2017 lineup and are looking forward to welcoming our customers in Kuwait to the Alghanim Auto stand.”

"We are happy to showcase the new 2017 Ford products including the much anticipated all-new F-150 Raptor to our customers in Kuwait, together with Alghanim Auto" said Mohammed Houssami, Regional Sales Director at Ford Middle East, during his visit to the show. "We commend the entire team and leadership of Alghanim Auto on their commitment to deliver customer excellence and their continued drive to offer the latest Ford products to customers in Kuwait, as evidenced by their presence at the 2017 AutoMoto."

Located by the fountain at 360 Mall, the Alghanim Auto display treats Auto Moto and mall visitors to a spectacular array of different Ford vehicles; showcasing key nameplates such as the sporty Focus ST dressed in Tangerine Scream and equipped with a sporty 2.0L EcoBoost engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The legendary Mustang Shelby GT350 grabs more than just attention in its special Grabber Blue finish. Driving enthusiasts behind the wheel of a Shelby GT350 can expect to be treated to the most balanced, nimble and exhilarating production Mustang yet; thanks to Ford’s most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 engine yet, pumping 526hp and 586N.m out of a 5.2 litres of displacement. Ford engineers took an innovative approach with GT350. Rather than develop individual systems to perform well independently, every component and shape is optimized to work in concert; balance is the key. While paying rigorous attention to detail, the team pushed the envelope with cutting-edge materials and technologies.

Representing full size sedans, the Taurus S.H.O makes quite a powerful appearance boasting a 3.5L EcoBoost engine and all-wheel drive system with a host of advanced technological and safety features. The sport utility vehicles (SUV) on display include the new Explorer, offering safety and comfort for 7 passengers, along with the all-new Edge. The new model features an impressive line-up of powertrains, class-leading technologies, higher levels of craftsmanship and greatly improved vehicle dynamics, guaranteed to impress drivers at first sight and test drive. The display also features a trio of tastefully accessorized vehicles with exterior and interior modifications including the midsize sedan Fusion, Expedition, and the F-150 – America’s best-selling truck over the past 40 years – featured in Regular Cab configuration with a sporty makeover.

Ford’s latest 2017 model range is available at Alghanim Auto, the only importer contractually authorised by Ford to sell new Ford vehicles, genuine Ford and MotorCraft® parts, and provide aftersales support to Ford customers in Kuwait.

All customers interested in Ford vehicles are invited to visit the Alghanim Auto display at 360 Mall until January 21st, or the Ford Alghanim New Vehicle Showroom, Service and Spare Parts Center in the Shuwaikh Industrial Area, opposite from the Classical Car Museum and Sirbb Circuit.
