Ford tries very hard to stay current in the American culture and tastes and then incorporate those into its products. It once released the interior volume of the Ford Escape measured in beer pong balls. Now it has tapped into the foody culture sweeping America. The new Bacon wrapped 2014 Ford Fiesta is being launched by Ford in three versions. The car is part of Ford's recognition of August 31st, Bacon Day.
The bacon lovers special is a fully covered Fiesta with 10 giant strips wrapping the car. However, there is also a bacon racing stripe treatment and also a side of bacon treatment. Liz Elser, Ford Fiesta marketing manager commented on the car saying “It’s no secret that bacon inspires a lot of passion, and that’s what the Fiesta celebrates. Our customers have a hunger for self-expression. Plus, it’s just awesome to drive down the road in a piece of bacon.”
The bacon wrapped Fiesta is just one of Ford’s many wrap creations that customers can choose. For more options please see the website: www.fordcustomgraphics.com. Most of the other designs trend towards stripes.
Ford did not say if there would be an ST version of the new Bacon-mobile called the Prosciutto, nor did Torque News interview celebrity chef Hugh Jass, who did not say “The Ford Bacon Wrapped Fiesta is best served with a side of scrambies and hash browns.”
Chevy has not yet responded to the new design throw-down challenge. However, it may not be long before a frozen yogurt Spark, or a chewing tobacco Silverado was in the works.
