Texas is Family

Tri-County Ford is thankful that Ford Motor Company is taking action to help Hurricane Harvey victims who have lost everything to this awful storm. Ford is offering millions of dollars in relief funding and bringing those victims that have lost their vehicles special assistance. With over 114 dealerships in the Houston region, the State of Texas is close to Ford's heart. If your vehicle was swept away or destroyed during the chaos that was Hurricane Harvey, come to Tri-County Ford and find out why Ford says that Texas is family.

"Our hearts go out to all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Texas is like family for Ford," said Jim Hackett, Ford President and CEO. "Our teams are working day and night to help our customers, dealers and communities get back on their feet."

Ford has started various campaigns to help out the relief efforts, including committing over $3.5 million in relief funding. This includes contributions to noble efforts such as the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Team Rubicon, Toolbank, the Cowboys-Texans telethon, and the purchase of four Chariot Transit Vans that will support the relief effort.

The "Texas Is Family" new customer assistance bundle features the same no-haggle, below-invoice price as Ford employees and their families receive. These customers can also get no payments until next year and low Ford Credit APR or lease rates. You can also count on a simple online application process.

Existing customers affected by Hurricane Harvey may apply to have their payments deferred for up to a total of two months by contacting Ford Credit or Lincoln Automotive Financial Services online at FordCredit.com or LincolnAFS.com or by phone at 800-723-4016 or via the FordPass smartphone app. First responders in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey are eligible to receive a special $1,000 discount (in addition to all available incentives) toward the purchase of any new Ford or Lincoln vehicle. And remember, here at Ford, Texas is family.

"The outpouring of support from dealers and employees who want to help is truly remarkable," said Raj Nair, Executive Vice President and President of North America. "Thousands of people have suffered tremendous loss as a result of Harvey. For these people, Ford is committed to taking action to make the process of getting their lives back on track a little easier."
