Ford gave a new crossover to a really nice guyOctober 2, 2020
The American brand has decided to give the all-new 2020 Ford Edge crossover model year to the guy who is engaged in the fact that he travels around the United States and mows lawns for the elderly. His old car covered just under 500,000 kilometers in a couple of years.
It’s always touching when an automaker gives someone a brand new car because of what that person is doing. We have seen many examples of this – new cars went to the owners of old trucks with a mileage of a million kilometers, and they also went to large families. But today’s story is a little different.
Rodney Smith Jr. offers free lawn care services to seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and others in need across the United States.
His faithful touring companion is the 2012 Ford Edge crossover, which he bought in 2018 with just 93,341 km of range. Two years later, the crossover traveled over 482,803 km.
It is reported that on a recent charity trip to Michigan, Smith was surprised that Ford gave him a brand-new Edge model. The message was simple and surprising: “Your selflessness did not go unnoticed. We value everything you do for the community and we hope you enjoy your new 2020 Ford Edge! “
Smith’s old Edge will be completely restored to perfect condition, the car will receive full service and new wheels and will be handed over to the person in need. The crossover has traveled 536,438 km so far and Smith has never “had a major problem with the car.” He is currently on his ninth charity tour of 50 states, and when he returns, he will start exploiting the new Edge.
