Have You Heard Of The Ford Vignale Range?
Added: 05 April 2018
So what exactly is Ford Vignale you ask? Well, it’s the name for Ford’s new high end range of cars that promise all-round opulence and premium personal service.
Ford have clocked on to the fact that premium executive cars are popular on British roads today so now they want a piece of that cake too. Ford have claimed that most Mondeo buyers were opting for the top trim Titanium model anyway so the demand for a premium Ford is already out there.
Ford then decided to resurrect a name from the past, Vignale, to spear head its onslaught on the premium car market. The name has been inspired by the Italian styling house, Vignale Carrozzeria – which was founded by a man called Alfredo Vignale. The company was renowned for its exotic cars based around Ferrari and back in 1973, Ford bought the business.
When you buy a model from the Vignale range you can be rest assured that it has every option on the list ticked alongside the inclusion of an array of premium fabrics and materials that aren’t available on models outside of the Vignale range. Such exclusive features include a hexagonal upper grille, LED headlights as standard, a new exterior colour pallet to choose from and new alloy wheel designs.
On the inside you’ll find there’s been no expense spared with high-quality leather scattered around the cabins as well as other premium materials with patterns stitched in to the surfaces. Electric motors have been applied liberally to adjust front seats, raise and lower the boot door, and also within the foldable side mirrors. Reversing cameras are also a typical feature, while improved sound systems, amplified alloy wheels and a heating steering wheel are also featured.
The other significant side to owning a Vignale that may persuade you to purchase one is the personal service that you receive.
When you buy a Vignale you are given a number which you can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to speak to a specialist Vignale relationship manager – whatever the enquiry! You can arrange for your car to be collected and also if needed have a loan car delivered.
Like with most established services these days there’s an app for this: the Vignale Service App provides you with lifestyle content from the Vignale Magazine; gives advice and guidance on driving; helps locate your nearest dealership and fuel stations; and assists with emergency call services.
