He’s a sales expert and a dad, too. Trebor Dukes is always on the go, and his affordable SUV with lots of perks from Adamson Ford makes all the difference when it comes to getting from one place to another quickly—and with lots of room to grow.
Things like touch screens and phone connectivity can make or break a road trip—or even a trip to the grocery store with the kiddos. When it comes to your automobile and your busy family, it’s all about space.
The Dad Taxi
Dukes knows what it’s like to haul around a growing family. He’s a working dad, with a roomy Ford SUV that goes from soccer games to the beach, packed with all the things they need.
And while having enough space is key, there’s connectivity for everyone to plug in those phones, along with state-of-the-art safety features. A roomy vehicle may be on top of your priority list, but technology and security are vital to families looking for that perfect SUV.
“SUVs are our best sellers right now for a lot of families who are familiar with driving sedans—they are more comfortable with transitioning into an SUV-style vehicle as their family grows. As a father, I can understand that.”
Did you know? Ford just received their highest ever new car quality ranking, beating out Toyota and Honda.

All Those Perks!
While the features differ depending on what you buy, Ford is known for better tech and safer, more efficient, lower-emission vehicles. When it comes to new SUVs, there’s lots of outlets for those phones, along with keyless entry, a rear-view camera and second-row seating. These Ford safety features really stand out, too:
- The Ford SYNC driver connect system, a command system co-developed with Microsoft.
- Airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and an electronic stability program (ESP). That’s computerized technology that improves a vehicle’s stability and reduces skidding.
- In addition, there’s electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), hill launch assist and rear parking sensors.
This Is Genius
Dukes loves to tell Birmingham car buyers about one specific feature that is really helpful: There are Ford models that will parallel park for you!
It’s called parking assist, and it’s just the thing for city living and navigating all those parallel parking spaces in and around the Birmingham-metro area.
“If you are the type of person who doesn’t like to park, then parking assist is for you,” Dukes said.
“It actually falls into the category of a safety feature. Most of the time, those vehicles with parking assist also have lane assist, so when you’re driving you are alerted when someone is in your blind spot.
“That really helps with merging, especially here in Birmingham and all the construction on the highways. Anything to keep you safe helps when you are behind the wheel.”
Yes, parallel parking is now a breeze, even in Birmingham. You just push a button on the main console and active park assist steers you into parking spaces. Don’t fret if you’re not into the SUVs—this feature is on a variety of Ford makes and models.
Here are the Ford models that have it:
- Ford C-Max hybrid
- C-Max Energi
- Fusion Energi
- Fusion Hybrid
- Lincoln MKS, MKT and MKZ
