Combat the Ongoing Chip Shortage & Drive Off in Your Dream Vehicle from Mangold Ford


The scarcity of semiconductor chips has caused a global inventory shortage, even impacting our Eureka, IL Ford dealership.

Keep Your Options Open for New & Used Vehicles

Drive a car that's a better fit by keeping your options open. Not sure if you should shop only for new cars? Or only used vehicles? Expand your search.

Consider Leasing a New Ford

Think of a Different Model or Body Style

Morton customers shouldn't restrict their search to a specific model, body style, or brand. Some are more popular than others, and certain brands and body styles are seeing fewer models produced with the chip shortage. Trucks and SUVs are extremely popular, but don't discount driver-friendly traits of sedans. Search alternative brands for used vehicles that have plenty of options.

Custom Order a New Ford

Our new inventory and pre-owned inventory won't always have every desired model configuration in stock. If the vehicle Washington customers want isn't on our Eureka, IL lot, Mangold Ford can help find a suitable vehicle or help them order a new Ford.

Custom ordering a new Ford truck or SUV is a convenient way to have a Ford built with the right features. There's no waiting around for the perfect model configuration to arrive or settling for a second choice.

Start Your Custom Order


 Waiting it out for your dream car isn't a bad option. Washington customers can reserve a new Ford they want or wait for their desired model configuration to arrive at Mangold Ford.
