Ford Recognizes Ford Freedom Unsung Heroes of Harvey Award Winners

Ford Freedom Unsung Heroes of Harvey AwardFord is teaming up with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation to sponsor The Ford Freedom Unsung “Heroes of Harvey” Awards. The goal of this tribute is to recognize individuals who have made tremendous efforts during the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts this past year. The honorees will be recognized for their achievements at a reception that will take place at the Bell Tower in Houston.

These awards were made possible thanks to a grant from Ford Motor Company Fund, which is a philanthropic extension of Ford Motor Company. Each award salutes and honors those who helped support the Houston community in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The honorees were nominated by residents of the Greater Houston Area.

“In the face of tremendous difficult, Houstonians came together to support each other and their community,” said Pamela Alexander, director of Community Development, Ford Motor Company Fund. “We congratulate the winners and are proud to honor their selfless acts.”

Ford and its dealerships, including West Point Lincoln, have taken part in other relief initiatives in the Houston area. It has donated more than $3.5 million to Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery efforts; donating 10,000 books to 10,000 children in need in partnership with First Book; and provided more than $100,000 in scholarships to 50 high school students.

We Love the Lincoln MKC — and You Will Too

New Lincoln MKC Interior
The new Lincoln MKC has a starting MSRP of $32,880.

As with every Lincoln ever manufactured, the new 2017 Lincoln MKC is a beauty to behold. It’s also much more than its good looks. There are so many reasons why we all love the Lincoln MKC here at West Point Lincoln, but we’ll try to limit ourselves to just two for now.

Silence is Golden

Seems like a strange reason to love a vehicle, but don’t people usually want to hear the roar of a powerful engine? Actually, we prefer the steady purr of the Lincoln MKC’s 2.3-liter GTDI turbocharged engine. And we prefer to feel that power for ourselves, from the plush comfort of our active noise control cabin, than have to announce it to everyone on the street.

With an elegant center console enhanced with the SYNC 3 infotainment system, an available THX II Certified Audio System, and optional precision onboard navigation system, driving the Lincoln MKC is a magnificent and addicting experience.
