About Kansas City Ford Dealer Thoroughbred Ford
Thoroughbred Ford opened for business in 1984 in downtown Kansas City. The name Thoroughbred in the dictionary is defined as an organization that is marked with grace and elegance; something that possesses sterling qualities. This was the image we wanted, thus we selected Thoroughbred as our dealership name.
Our business grew over the years until the opportunity presented itself to relocate and build a new dealership in the northern suburbs of Kansas City only 5 minutes from the International Airport.
Ford Motor Company awarded Thoroughbred Ford again with their President’s Award for the full calendar year of 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 presented to less than 3% of all dealerships nationally. Ford says of the President’s Award, “It is an award that exemplified achievement… an honor bestowed on only a select group of individuals whose exceptional effort and superior performance distinguish them from all others.”
Taking over two years to build, the new 42,000 square ft. facility opened in the summer of 1998. Designed by the world famous Gensler Architects in San Francisco and the prestigious firm of WRS Architects in Riverside, the facility was carefully planned in every detail.
Our staff is committed to achieving top customer satisfaction in every facet of our business. We take pride that based on independent customer surveys done by Ford Motor Company, we rank among the top 10% of all dealerships nationally.
