Ford Motor Company, in partnership with First National Bank of Omaha and Visa, is launching the FordPass Rewards Visa Card as part of a customer loyalty program expansion. FordPass first launched in 2019.

The credit card similar to credit card programs offered by General Motors and but Ford says that theirs offers a higher level of rewards than the other programs.

"Building trust and delivering the best ownership experience possible for our customers is our top priority at Ford," said David Loflin, manager, Customer Experience. "Not only does this card match the features of other major players in the credit card space, it offers customers a means to reduce the cost of ownership by redeeming Points to purchase, lease or service their vehicle."

In exchange for using their FordPass Rewards Visa Card to pay for purchases, customers can earn 10 percent Back in Points on Ford service. That 10 percent is an accumulation of five percent Back in Points in Ford dealership purchases and an equal percentage Back in Points with FordPass Rewards.

Customers also earn five percent Back in Points on Ford dealership purchases; three percent Back in Points in gas, auto insurance, tolls, parking, and dining expenses; and one percent Back in Points on all other purchases.

The credit card is the only co-branded card with an annual statement credit. Users get $200 each year when they spend $6,000 in 12 consecutive billing cycles after opening the account. Customers get a $100 statement credit when they spend $3,000 within the first three billing cycles after opening an account.

There is also low-interest financing for six billing cycles on Ford dealership purchases over $499.

Additionally, the card gets users access to more traditional FordPass Rewards opportunities. For example, in June FordPass Rewards gave its members access to one month of complimentary Postmates delivery service and deployed a complimentary The Works oil change and tire rotation to members deemed essential workers.

Currently, the FordPass Rewards program has enrolled more than 4.5 million members

Cardholders will be able to customize their FordPass Rewards Visa Card by checking the options box. The card is first available in a Model-A Black or Blue Oval Blue color scheme. Beginning with the Bronco brand and the all-new F-150, future iterations of the card will allow model-specific customization.

The time is finally here. After years of speculation and several months of pandemic-related delays, the Ford Bronco is starting to roll off the assembly line. The SUV marks the first new Bronco model in Ford's lineup in 15 years, not counting the Bronco Sport, and is one of the most hyped and sought-after vehicles to hit the market in quite some time. Ford's announcement that production has begun will be accompanied by a special YouTube presentation that Ford says will include interviews with the Bronco team and with reservation holders at the automaker's new Modification Center.

Bronco production has driven Ford to invest $750 million into its Michigan Assembly Plant, and the automaker says it has added 2,700 jobs to support the rollout. Ford's push to begin production can't come soon enough. Over 125,000 Bronco orders have been placed, and multiple delays have pushed the vehicle's arrival back, meaning there is considerable demand for the off-road legend.

Ford is ready to capitalize on the craze and will offer several ways to customize the new vehicle. At its 1.7 million square-foot Modification Center, The Blue Oval will factory-install several optional modifications that include equipment such as a front bumper safari bar, graphics packages, roof racks, and more. That's on top of more than 200 factory-backed accessories that can be installed at the dealer, either at or after the time of purchase.

If you are hoping to get behind the wheel of a new Bronco, it could be a while. Even buyers that have been in line for a while now might not see their new vehicle until late 2021 or 2022, and the vehicle's official rollout will almost certainly re-spike demand. Even so, many feel it's worth the wait, and Ford's vehicle configuration tool is live, so go check it out for yourself.
