UPDATE: MAY 16 2019


A message to the hard working members of the Windsor Ford Team:

It was brought to our attention that a radio advertisement that we were running gave the impression that we were not supportive of the Windsor built 5.0 V8 engine. Upon learning of these concerns, we immediately pulled the ad.

I want to assure you that although the advertisement promoted an F-150 with the 2.7 litre Ecoboost engine, it was not our intention to disparage the 5.0 V8 engine.

The team here at Rose City Ford is proud to sell the Windsor built 5.0 V8 in both the F-150 and the Mustang GT and truly appreciate the support that we receive from all the great people that work hard building V8’s at the Ford Windsor sites.

On behalf of the team here at Rose City Ford, I would like to thank you for your feedback and apologize for the concern that the advertisement created. We will be re-writing the advertisement to promote an F-150 with the V8 engine.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Rose City Ford's History

Rose City Ford Sales Limited was named and began operations in Windsor, Ontario during the spring of 1981. However, the dealership’s doors first opened in the late 1960’s. A young Windsorite named William (Bill) Chisholm was forming notions of running his own car dealership one day. His dream was to create a dealership that was “best in class” for the automobile industry.

On June 1, 1981, with 47 dedicated employees, Bill founded Rose City Ford Sales Limited. He had chosen the name in honour of Windsor - the “City of Roses”. The dealership quickly established a reputation for honesty, integrity, and superior customer satisfaction.

With a comprehensive line up of products and services including new and pre-owned vehicle sales and financing, service repairs, certified parts sales, and bodyshop/collision repairs; Rose City Ford has become Windsor and Essex County’s one-stop shop for Ford vehicle owners – past, present and future.

In the fall of 1996, Bill chose to retire and his son John Chisholm took over as the proud owner and operator of Rose City Ford until fall of 2018.

In December 2018, Rose City Ford was acquired by AutoCanada Inc. - a leading North American multi-location automobile dealership group currently operating 69 franchised dealerships, comprised of 27 brands, in eight provinces in Canada as well as a group in Illinois, USA.

Today, the dealership’s list of loyal customers continues to expand and flourish and the business has become a city landmark and loyal supporter of the community. Facility and equipment upgrades continue to ensure that the franchise remains fresh and cutting edge with each passing year.

The entire Rose City Ford team warmly invite you to visit our friendly, no-pressure “Dealership with a Heart” – where we firmly believe that “Business goes where it’s invited, and stays where it’s well treated.”
