The Ford F-Series becomes the Official Truck of the NFL and Genesis finally releases some pricing info for its new flagship sedan in this week’s Auto News in :60!
Ford Partners with NFL
Ford is definitely in a football state of mind. The automaker just inked a new three-year deal as the Official Truck of the NFL. It will be rolling out a special fleet of “NFL Tailgate Trucks on Demand” at select games this season. Fans will have a chance to win tickets and tailgating parties.
Fans also can also enter to win a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LI. Just head to NFL.com/Ford for a chance to win. The automaker is also giving away an NFL-themed all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty.
2017 Genesis G90 Pricing
The flagship sedan for Hyundai’s new dedicated luxury brand arrives in late September.
The 2017 Genesis G90 will have the price tag to match its premium status, too. The base rear-wheel drive model starts from just over $69,000 including freight charges. Its twin-turbo v6 churns out 365-horses. The top-of-the-line V8 model with all-wheel drive takes you over the $73,000 mark.
The G90 is also technically the first automaker to roll out Amazon Alexa technology. It allows owners to control some of their car functions from inside their house using voice commands. Owners can do things like unlock doors, and set the climate control, all from the comfort of their living room.
Other automakers like BMW and Ford are also rolling out Amazon Alexa integration in the near future.
