Is Your Truck Ready For Kansas City Tailgate Party Season?

Kansas City Chiefs Tailgate Party
There is no doubt about it, Kansas City football fans love to drop the tailgate, party hard, eat barbeque, and talk smack. Do you have a truck that can handle KC tailgate season?

We don’t want to play favorites or anything, but you already know: The Ford F150 is Kansas City’s favorite truck for pre-gaming.

After 47 years in a row as America’s best-selling truck, you know the football-loving fans of Missouri are going to put it to good use in stadiums across the state, but at Gary Crossley Ford you have options. 

You can choose your truck, choose your team, and choose us to help you get ready for the best football season ever. 

Kansas City Chiefs

Last year, our beloved Chiefs set out to earn their third straight Superbowl berth, but it was not to be. The season came to an end in their fourth straight AFC conference championship game with an overtime loss to Cincy.

Now, we’re going for five in a row along with our sixth AFC West title.

We may have lost 6-time Pro-Bowler Tyveek Hill, but Andy Reid will still be calling the shots, and Patrick Mahones will still be throwing bombs. We got this.

Arrowhead will be hopping all year, and the F150s will be wall to wall in the parking lot. The Ford F150 is the official truck of the NFL. Bona Fide. Certified. The truck abides!

With the F150’s Pro Power Onboard and a full tank of gas, you can power your tailgate party all day long and into the night. Technically the 7.2 kW system can provide full power for 32 hours, but security is going to give you the boot long before then. And that 7.2 kW gives you enough juice to power 28 refrigerators. That’s a lot of brats!

Missouri Tigers

The Tigers ended the season with a loss to Army in the Armed Forces Bowl. I know: the Armed Forces Bowl doesn’t exactly scream football tradition. You can’t even see the BCS bowl games from there, but it is a BOWL GAME, right!? And we beat Florida last year so we’ve got that going for us.

This year, the SEC East is looking like a dogfight every week with Georgia coming off the National Championship and Tennessee loaded up for bear. Thank goodness for Vanderbilt, but that doesn’t happen until the end of October.

I’ve got two words for you, though: Luther Burden

The five-star freshman wide receiver out of St. Louis is being heralded as an immediate game changer, SEC Freshman of the year, and future first-ballot NFL Hall of Famer. Now we just need someone to throw him the ball.

The price of gas has been coming down a smidge, but it’s still a long way from cheap. The two-hour drive to Columbia will be less costly behind the wheel of a Ford Ranger. The Ranger leads all midsize trucks in highway fuel economy – 26 miles per gallon, and every penny you save on gas can help buy more beverages. 

Liberty North High School

Liberty North High School Crossley Family Activity Complex

Yes, it still stings. So close, so close, and yet so far away. 

The Eagles made their first-ever appearance in a state championship game last season and came up just short.

But as the saying goes, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. This year the Eagles are coming back strong.

Head coach Greg Jones parlayed last year’s championship run into a gig at the college level, and that means there’s a new sheriff in town for Friday nights this fall at the Crossley Family Activity Complex. Andy Lierman was named head coach this spring after Jones departed for Saturday football in Oregon. 

Lierman earned the top sideline spot by turning last year’s defensive corps into one of the top defenses in the state allowing less than 20 points per game and guiding sophomore phenom Melvin Laster III to a Defensive Player of the Year award.

With Lierman in charge and Laster back on D, the Eagle offense should have plenty of time to shine. Highly recruited quarterback Sam Van Dyne is back for another year along with all-conference running back Micah Jo Barnett making the Eagles a strong contender for another run at state.

The parking lot at Crossley Family Activities Complex is Eagle central on football Friday nights, and we expect it to be covered up in Ford Maverick trucks this fall. The Maverick packs a triple punch that’s made it irresistible for high school students. With an MSRP starting under $20 grand, the Maverick is one of the most affordable new vehicles in Missouri. The Maverick is the right size, big enough to get the whole crew to the game and small enough that it doesn’t take the whole crew to maneuver you into a parking space. Best of all, with a little Top Secret Gary Crossley Ford ninja voodoo, some of those Mavericks are topping out at 50 miles per gallon.

Come experience the Crossley Difference at Gary Crossley Ford
