We Lead Script
We don’t follow
We don’t back down
We don’t need a hand out
In fact, we lend a hand
We’re proud to be depended on
Proud to build upon culture
To be proud of where you came from
You Have to be going somewhere
Built Ford Proud
Ode to the Builders Script
And we build with purpose. With pride.
Pride – because we build for the builders.
The never-back-down builders.
The always-on builders
The crack-of-dawn builders.
The builders you didn’t see coming.
We build trucks for them.
And we’ve proudly done just that for over 41 years.
So why stop now? There’s so much more to build.
Built for the builders. The 2019 F-150
Built Ford Proud
Celebrate 10 years of partnership between Ford Motor Company and Essence Fest, by integrating branded content leading up to Essence Festival that puts Ford at the forefront of African American feminism and in turn give African American women a unique way to celebrate sisterhood.
Bound by ties far deeper than blood, for women, it is no question sisters are more than family relations. But for African American women It encompasses so much more, including relationships by friendship, blood, community, sports, religion. AA women bond by paving a path, leading by example and giving back to the community.
"Road to Essence" celebrates 10 years of riding together starting with a branded content series for the magazine's boss lady readers and culminating at Essence Fest where real-time amplifications of the message came to life as attendees pitch their business to win a Ford.
