If you’re looking for a new FlexFuel vehicle, you may not get much help at your local dealership, unfortunately. Due to changing expectations and regulations from the Obama Administration, automobile manufacturers are pressed to provide more vehicles that use other alternative fuels. That makes finding an FFV a bit harder, but not impossible.
The Renewable Fuels Association has put together a list of the 2016 model year vehicles that are available in FFV. You can read that list here.
Don’t forget, your Illinois Corn Growers Association membership entitles you to a rebate on your new vehicle purchase from Ford. Your ICGA membership also automatically makes you a member of the National Corn Growers Association.
NCGA participates in Ford’s X-Plan vehicle pricing plan. With a unique NCGA partner code, members can access a special website that gives them a reduced price on dozens of Ford and Lincoln vehicles. Log in to www.fordpartner.com and members can: • See and research the full range of vehicles available (very few models are excluded) • Determine the special pricing available to members • Find factory rebates and other incentives in their area in addition to the special pricing • Look up area dealers and search dealer inventories or request quotes over the internet Once the member has selected a vehicle or found an area dealer to work with, they need to select a unique, member-specific PIN that will identify them as an NCGA member and deserving of the discount. The member will need the PIN to lock in the final, discounted purchase price. Once the member has logged in to www.fordpartner.com with our partner code—NCGA2—there is a link to the PIN page.
