The attention to detail in the sedan brings out the pure elegance of the vehicle. In an “approach sequence” for the lighting, the Lincoln star in the grille fades on first, followed by the LED light tubes in the headlamps and fog lamps.

Rumor has it that this model will become available for purchase in 2016. All of us here at Allan Vigil Ford Lincoln are anxiously awaiting the release!

Lincoln Picks up Honors at Chicago Auto Show

February 27, 2015

We’re excited to announce that the entire Lincoln lineup received prestigious recognition by well-respected Kelley Blue Book:

Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 3.02.46 PM
Kelley Blue Book (KBB) passed out its annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards and Lincoln snagged the award for “Best Luxury Brand.”  The awards are designed to recognize brands that demonstrate excellent long-term value relative to their respective competition.  

KBB referred to Lincoln as “a surprise winner” in this year’s luxury category.  

Here’s what else KBB had to say about Lincoln:  
“Lincoln bested all luxury competitors on the basis of highly competitive pricing and a resurgent product line with interesting new vehicles like the Lincoln MKX midsize SUV, a winner in its class, and the smaller MKC compact crossover. Those well-equipped, nicely priced luxury SUVs, aided by help from the venerable Lincoln Navigator, were among the reasons the Lincoln Motor Company emerged as the 5-Year Cost-to-Own leader as a luxury brand for 2015.”

Meet Lesa: Our Own State Champion

February 11, 2015

If you’ve ever visited our Fayetteville dealership location, you’ve probably seen Lesa Camp. She may be petite, but she is full of drive, determination, and is one of the most hard-working people we know.

Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 11.14.08 AM

On the job, Lesa is in charge of the fleet sales department. That means it’s her responsibility to work directly with companies and businesses, placing bids to sell Ford vehicles for their company use. From fast food restaurants to catering companies to state vehicles to police departments, Lesa works with everyone! She has placed bids – and sold fleet vehicles – to business across the entire state of Georgia.

While Lesa is very successful at her job, her successes only amplify outside of work. Born in Columbus, Georgia, Lesa’s life passion lies with horses.

Lesa’s day begins at 5am, feeding her three horses, cleaning stalls, and taking care of she and her husband’s 22 acres of land. Married for 28 years, she and her husband are true outdoorsmen. Her husbands hunts, Lesa rides horses, and they go fishing together.

Lesa began riding at age 12, and instantly fell in love. She began participating in barrel racing speed competitions around age 15 or 16 and hasn’t stopped since. While it will take a little probing for her to admit her accomplishments, Lesa has more-than-excelled in her riding. She has won the State Championship many times.

“Riding is really a good, family-oriented event,” Lesa says. “You can bring your whole family and everybody rides. You always know where your kids are. It’s really a good, fun thing. And it’s a big, secondary family.”

Next time you visit Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville, pop your head into Lesa’s office and ask her a bit about her riding. She has some great stories to share.

December 9, 2014

At Allan Vigil Dealerships, we strive to treat each customer – and every member of our team – like they are a member of our family. We’re incredibly proud of our team and would like to give you the opportunity to learn a little more about who we are and how our staff is helping make an impact in our community.

Dave Gosdin has been a part of the Allan Vigil family since 1989. He started as a driver at Allan Vigil in 1989 and has grown with the company, now holding the position of Parts Manager at Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville. Dave’s passion for the automotive industry started at a young age. Growing up, Dave worked on vehicles with his father and his admiration of the craft only grew.

Screen Shot 2014-12-09 at 5.05.47 PM
Outside of work, Dave’s passion lies with music. He is the lead singer for a country music band, playing primarily for the VFW and American Legion in the Fayetteville, GA area. While his band plays cover songs at their monthly shows, Dave also enjoys writing his own songs. Dave enjoys the fact that his music brings people out of their homes and onto the dance floor.

The next time you bring your vehicle in for service at Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville, keep your eyes open for Dave and pick his brain on all-things music.
