Meet the All New Ford EcoSport

 Ford is Unstoppable introducing the all-new EcoSport for North America for those who want space-saving convenience and SUV capability. The EcoSport – a fun, capable, connected compact SUV – stars in the world’s first-ever vehicle reveal on Snapchat, kicking off a Hollywood pop-up event open to the public through Wednesday evening. The interactive event showcases how EcoSport is a perfect companion for those who believe in going small and living big. More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff,” said Chantel Lenard, executive director, Ford U.S. marketing. “EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It’s our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality.” Fun sound, color and style EcoSport’s available premium B&O PLAY audio system brings your music to life. HARMAN acoustic engineers spent hundreds of hours perfecting the in-vehicle music experience. The Ford-exclusive B&O PLAY audio system, standard on EcoSport Titanium, features 10 speakers, including B&O PLAY-branded tweeters and woofers in the front doors and a subwoofer in back. The 675-watt system unlocks the power of your favorite music and transforms every drive into a “living big” experience. EcoSport also features available HD Radio technology, SiriusXM® satellite radio and a dual FM radio antenna that boosts the range and clarity of FM signals. Connected technology EcoSport makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family with SYNC® 3, Ford’s communications and entertainment system. Faster, more intuitive and easier to use, the system provides more conversational voice recognition and enhanced response to driver commands. Optimized for hands-free use, SYNC 3 for EcoSport is coupled with a touch screen similar to a smartphone or tablet. The 8-inch screen gives front-row occupants easy access to operate available Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM commands, and B&O PLAY audio settings. Drivers also have the ability to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from almost anywhere using available SYNC Connect with FordPass®. The mobile app lets owners view vehicle information, such as the fuel level and odometer reading, when not in the vehicle. EcoSport features two fast-charging USB ports to ensure owners’ devices are always juiced. Plus, there’s a 12-volt power outlet. An available 110-volt outlet positioned behind the center console and another 12-volt outlet allow rear-seat passengers to stay plugged in, too....

Save Today for the future of your Child’s College Education

 This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. They say that we can speak about things that we have felt or experienced, like the “been there done that” thing. But today, I want to talk about something I hope you do not experience like the regret of not saving for the future of your kids college education. You see, I owned a small business, worked very hard to make a six figure salary, but took for granted what I had, thinking that it would always be that way. Turned out to be that the world changed and the economy went down creating an unfortunate turn of events where I lost everything. Seriously my regret now, is that I didn’t open a savings account just for my son’s college tuitions and expenses. Thinking that I was going to make it big again right a way. I’m still in the process of making it big again. Meanwhile, I’m disappointed with myself but worst of all is that my son is affected by it. Please don’t let this happen to you. I hope you learn from my mistake. Prepare today for your child’s future education, the future comes a lot quicker that you think.
