When you visit Wickstrom Ford to purchase a new vehicle, you’ll get the chance to meet one-on-one with one of our auto sales experts. Not only will they show you our wide variety of new cars for sale, but they’ll also help you find the vehicle that fits you and your needs like a glove.

At Wickstrom Ford, we get a wide variety of different customers from all over the Barrington, IL area, although one of the many drivers we cater to are parents. Whether you’re new to the game or are hoping to grow your already established family, chances are you can agree that having any ordinary car simply won’t cut it. While there are plenty of pickup trucks and sedans that may be passable, you’ll likely want a vehicle that is fully equipped to take on family life.

But what do you look for in a family-friendly Ford car? Space for both cargo and passengers should be your first concern. So, while there are plenty of sizeable pickup trucks, the SUV is the most ideal form. Another factor to look for is the safety features packed into the vehicle. Nowadays there are a plethora of safety features to look out for that do more than just protect you during an accident but can protect you from a collision altogether.

So, what would we suggest as the ultimate family-friendly Ford? While a lot of vehicles at our Ford dealership would fit the bill, we couldn’t suggest the 2020 Ford Explorer enough. With plenty of room for seven passengers and next-level safety features like automatic emergency braking and active lane control, the 2020 Ford Explorer is clearly the ultimate family-friendly car.

If you want to see just how incredible the 2020 Ford Explorer is firsthand, one of our sales representatives can set you up for a test drive. At Wickstrom Ford, we believe that there is a perfect Ford brand vehicle out there for everybody.
