Ford Motor Company will display an all-new float at the 93rd annual America’s Thanksgiving Parade in downtown Detroit on Thursday November 28th. Ford’s all-new float will embody their commitment to “Creating Tomorrow Together” and will showcase 45 Ford cars, trucks and SUVs including the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, 2020 Ford Explorer ST, and a fleet of Ford F-series trucks. In addition to the new float, Ford has also extended their partnership with The Parade Company on Detroit traditions and has agreed to sponsor America’s Thanksgiving Parade, Ford Fireworks, and the Hob Nobble Gobble through 2021.

“Everything Ford does is designed around the needs of people,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund. “In Detroit, our hometown for 116 years, that includes bringing people together through cherished local traditions like America’s Thanksgiving Parade. The parade has been a joyful kickoff of the holiday season for generations of people in Southeast Michigan, and Ford is proud to be a part of those shared experiences and memories.”

Ford’s float measures over 100 feet long and 25 feet tall and will display images representing everything Ford is working on in addition to their $20 million annual charitable investments. Onlookers will find features that cover the innovation hub being developed at the historic Michigan Central Station in Detroit, to the robotics lab in Ann Arbor, Michigan, as well as to Ford’s onward push with electric and autonomous vehicles and mobility solutions. Members of Ford Volunteer Corps will also be riding and walking alongside the float.

Ford has invested in Detroit for over 100 years and will continue to do so as Ford and the Ford Fund join together to combat hunger in the community. Ford and Ford Fund are aiding food insecurity in the Metro Detroit area and joining forces with Gleaners Community Food Bank to combat hunger with various donations and events this holiday season.

In addition to hunger relief, Ford and Ford Fund have contributed more than $175 million in Detroit and Southeast Michigan over the past 10 years to support education, safe driving, and various arts and culture initiatives.
