Ford Commercial Vehicles Getting the Job Done Right

Ford Commercial Vehicles Getting the Job Done Right

Working hard is as important as working smart and with the all-new Ford commercial vehicles, you can do both.

Built Ford Tough® commercial trucks are tough, dependable, efficient, and rugged with outstanding configurations, a programmable interface, and a frame body built to support a tremendous amount of weight.

Whether you need a pickup truck, van or passenger, Ford offers a wide range of high-performing contenders in the commercial truck market for all of your business needs.

Here are 3 advantages to purchasing a Ford commercial vehicle.

1. Tax Deductions

According to Section 179 of the IRS code, at the time of purchase, business owners can take a tax deduction for the full cost of an asset, such as a commercial vehicle.

However, to qualify for a Section 179 deduction, the vehicle must have a gross weight above 6,000 pounds.

Ford commercial vehicles are heavy duty trucks that weigh well over the required minimum limit. So, when tax season comes around, you can enjoy a nice savings on your purchase.

2. Access to Ford Commercial Solutions

Ford owners can get access to manufacturer-grade telematics hardware and software with data solutions uniquely engineered to make using your truck as easy and stress-free as possible.

Whether you need to improve efficiency and productivity, manage compliance, or increase vehicle uptime, these solutions will help you to overcome daily logistic challenges.
