We know that between books, tuition, and housing college can be pretty expensive especially with the school loans that come after college. That's why we developed the Ford Drives U Program. College students and recent graduates within 3 years of your graduation date are eligible for a $500 incentive, plus great rates through Ford Credit when you purchase or lease a new 2018/2019 Ford vehicle. The Ford Drives U Program was designed to get students on the road by allowing them to save a little cash. If you are looking to save even more, be sure to look at our new car specials for additional savings. Having a tough time deciding whether to buy or lease? No worries, our buying vs leasing page can help you figure out the pros and cons of both and help you decide what's best for you. If you are still unsure whether to buy or lease just visit our finance center page where you can fill out a credit application and get in touch with one of our service managers who can help you figure out what the best option would be for you before walking through the door!
