With Alpena, MI right on the water, we’re fortunate to have convenient access to an array of outdoor activities. No matter what you’re doing, however, you need a vehicle that can take you outdoors, off-road, and into the open. Here at Dean Arbor Ford Lincoln, we love the outdoors almost as much as our outdoor-ready vehicles.

If you’re anything like us, you’re looking for that perfect vehicle to take you on your next adventure. That’s why we’re highlighting a few features of our favorite outdoor cars to help you in your search.

It’s no doubt that the 2019 Ford F-150 exhibits all the qualities we’re looking for in a hardworking vehicle. This Ford pickup truck comes in a variety of trim levels and configurations, meaning that you can find a model that fits all of your outdoor needs. With a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds, hauling everything, from a small trailer to a boat, is easy. We especially love the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor that comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. The Ford F-150 Raptor also makes for a great outdoor vehicle, thanks to its reinforced frame, unique four-wheel drive system, 17-inch wheels with off-road tires, and more. 

If you’re looking for something a little smaller, though not too small, we recommend the 2019 Ford Explorer. This Ford SUV features ample power with strong acceleration, easy to use infotainment features, and a quiet cabin with lots of storage compartments. It can also tow up to 5,000 pounds. Check out the Ford Explorer Limited trim which features power-folding third-row seats and the optional twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

We invite you to visit our Alpena Ford dealership to explore these two models in person and take a test drive. Additionally, we offer plenty of other vehicles that are perfect for exploring the outdoors this summer. Visit us today.
