Visit Gates FordStores
Here at Gates Ford, we take pride in all of our dealerships across Essex and Hertfordshire and are delighted to have three flagship dealerships, based in St. Albans, Stevenage and Harlow. These locations are known as FordStores, and offer a unique, interactive dealership experience, whether you are looking to explore the Ford vehicle line-up or need to maintain your current Ford vehicle. Our FordStore locations offer the entire Ford Car and Commercial vehicle range including specialist products such as Ford Performance models. All three of our FordStores are also specialist Transit Centres. Only a limited number of dealerships across Europe have FordStore status, and as such, you’re guaranteed an immersive, enhanced visit, supported by the unrivalled expertise of our showroom staff. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
What is a FordStore?
FordStores are flagship locations that revolutionise your experience of the Ford vehicle range. These dealerships provide a relaxed, safe, and interactive environment where you can explore the latest products, discover a range of related services, and choose the right solution for you – all with no sales pressure. At Gates Ford, our bright, airy and modern FordStores are divided into a series of easy-to-navigate zones, and enable you to explore various in-car technologies and product attributes using intelligent, interactive technology.
The FordStore Experience
The FordStore experience is about more than simply viewing our vehicles. For your convenience, our products are arranged into distinct zones, which enable you to compare models with ease. You’ll also find two separate headline displays, complete with spotlight-style halo lighting and flooring, where we showcase newly launched and performance vehicles, such as the popular STmodels. In the ‘Discover Ford’ zone, you can learn more about Ford ownership in general, while in the ‘Relax’ zone you can enjoy complimentary refreshments while you decide which model is right for you.
Our FordStores in St Albans, Stevenage and Harlow offer digital technologies to help you understand our Ford vehicles. Using a dedicated app, you can personalise your chosen car inside and out, ensuring it’s exactly what you want before you place your order. Our power wall, meanwhile, consists of nine 55-inch screens that offer a highly immersive experience and introduce you to your new car virtually.
Each of our FordStores also features a brand new Vignale lounge, where you can experience the Vignale editions of our Ford models. Providing the very highest levels of quality and craftsmanship, this exclusive brand brings together award-winning design with a unique ownership experience, and is available on selected models including the Fiesta, Focus, Kuga Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy.
