6 Ford Models You Can’t Overlook
The vehicle industry this year abounds with great and exciting model releases from car manufacturers including Ford. Having been known for their F-Series and Mustang SUVs, the manufacturing giant is making a leap forward with its lineup of up-and-coming SUV models including the Fiesta and Focus.
Brand new models and rumored releases are extravagantly laden with features such as smaller and powerful engines, EcoBoost technology capable of both turbocharging and direct oil injection, and other features that will make you want to drive one.
Better yet, many of these models (and plenty from other manufacturers!) are seeing record deals due to the downward sales trends of 2017 and the 2018 models shipping in.
The Models to Watch
2018 Ford Escape
Talk about a reliable car, a Ford favorite, and an unbeatable deal: dealerships are trying to sell the Escape car at the rate of production. The 2018 Ford Escape ranks in the top 5 of all Compact SUVs, according to Consumer Reports. It not only delivers prime, engaging performance but also an inviting interior and a sleek exterior. This car is a top selection from the Ford family, and its well-roundedness is why it finishes in the top part of ratings.
2018 Ford Bronco
Ford is rumored to be releasing a rebirth of the Ford Bronco, which is expected to be in direct competition with the Jeep Wrangler. The SUV will feature some of the manufacturer’s top of the line visage including an EcoBoost v6 engine that can either come with a 2.7 or 3.5-liter capacity.
Although not much news is being confirmed about the vehicle’s countenance, it is speculated to appear much like its predecessors with a few tweaks and updates to keep it streamlined with the latest advancements. It may have been almost two decades since the first model appeared, but Ford is bound to repeat the crossover craze with an update on the 2018 Ford Bronco lineup.
Starting at $19,000 the compact Ford SUV is about to make a comeback in the coming months. The model already has two generations sprouting from the 2003 Brazil model and the second generation model, which was released globally in 2012. The 2018 EcoSport made some necessary facelifts including the two performance tier turbocharged and direct-inject EcoBoost cylinder.
The new model also comes with Ford’s innovative on-demand all-wheel-drive system akin to the previously released Escape lineup. The 2018 EcoSport is expected to be available in four trims: the S, SE, SES, and Titanium top tier model.
2018 Ford Fusion
As of the date, the 2018 Ford Fusion starting price is $33,750. The primary model sports a fantastic 2.7l EcoBoost v6 Engine with continuously controlled damping suspension for that added grip when driving. Akin to most Ford models, the new Ford Fusion also has an Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and anti-lock braking system for extra security.
The standard interior features leather-trimmed seats, heated or cooled front seats and a fold-down split rear seating capacity. Entertainment center comes with optional driver configurable LCD screens, a Voice-Activated Navigation System, and a customized audio system from Sony.
2018 Ford Fiesta
Europe has seen a strong following with the Ford Fiesta lineup–but in America, it has a short history. This year, Ford will release a new lineup of the Fiesta model to mark its seventh-generation. The melodramatic interior upgrade will make it more appealing to the American audience coupled with a powerful 138 hp engine. It will also come with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission and the four-cylinder engine.
The interior also sports nice cabin trimmings with leather seats that make the compact car extra luxurious. The sleek interior is matched with the dynamic craftsmanship on the outside trims as it gives the new model a distinctive look.
2018 Ford Ranger
The motoring world went abuzz with news that the manufacturing giant was going to release a new Ford Ranger Raptor. The rumored vehicle is said to sport a 2l turbo diesel engine straight from the EcoBlue lineup. If the reports are correct, it would possibly have 200 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque.
A clear giveaway is one video of the new model cruising its way across the Australian outback, kicking up sand behind the wheels. It is said to be released in Australia first next year before making its way to the US.
Ford’s exciting 2018 lineup brings the return of a long-beloved favorite, upgrades to current models, and so much more. See these new additions and pick the perfect Ford for your style as these cars arrive at your local dealership.
