Spring is around the corner and we invite you to hit the road with Ford models selected just
for you. From a sleek, comfortable SUV to a mid-size pick-up truck, it is time for you to
start your engines. Check them out and choose the one that best fits your lifestyle.
2018 Ford Expedition
Named “Best Full-Size SUV of 2018”, the Ford Expedition
is comfortable, spacious and sophisticated. The design and
utility of it is out of this world: seating for up to eight
occupants, plus loads of cargo volume in regular and
extended-length MAX models. It is with no doubt it deserves
the 2018 Expedition Highest Ranked Large SUV in Initial
Quality award by J.D. Power.
Whether your needs are to have a large cargo storage,
great ride quality or more leg room, the Ford Expedition
achieves this right away. It has more hip room in the first
and second rows than the Tahoe and Yukon as well as
best-in-class second-and third-row leg room.
Let’s not forget all the technology it is surrounded with.
With an available SYNC® Connect-equipped vehicle, you can
use FordPass™ to track your vehicle’s location and remotely
access vehicle features, such as start, lock and unlock, and
vehicle status, including fuel level. You can also schedule
specific times to remotely start your vehicle. Available SYNC27
can bring the power of Apple CarPlay™compatibility to your
Ford. You can use Siri® to interact with your iPhone.® Make
calls, return missed calls and listen to voicemail, as well as
send, read and reply to text messages, and even access your
favorite songs and playlists. Apple Maps provides convenient
turn-by-turn directions, traffic conditions and estimated travel
Other superb tech add-ons include Ford+Alexa–bringing
the amazing capabilities of Amazon Alexa from your home to
2018 FORD F-150
Powered by its first-ever diesel engine, the 3.0L Power Stroke®
Turbo Diesel3 delivers 440 lb.-ft. of diesel torque and 250
diesel horsepower – both best in class. The 3.0L Power Stroke
V6 Turbo Diesel features the same segment-exclusive
compacted-graphite iron block material construction and
forged-steel crank used in the 2.7L EcoBoost®engine for added
strength and durability, while reducing weight.
With an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway and
best-in-class diesel horsepower and torque, the engine is
mated to another technological standout: the innovative
10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®
capability, progressive range select and tow/haul mode. It’s a
combination that helps the diesel-powered F-150 deliver
exactly what you need. For towing, hauling, and all-around
Strong and smart, the F-150 delivers impressive towing
and payload ratings. Operate more efficiently with features
like the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ option. The work spaces
of both the cab interior and the pickup box are designed to
help you be more productive.
Three new leather trims make their F-150 debut in 2018.
On LIMITED, Navy Pier leather makes it even more of a
standout, trimming the 10-way power heated and ventilated
multicontour front seats with Active Motion,® as well as the
heated steering wheel, center console lid and shifter knob.
Genuine Dark Ash Swirl wood trim and Satin Aluminum
accents complement the environment, as does Black
carpeting with unique floor mats. On PLATINUM, new Dark
Marsala leather trim does the honors.
