In the quest for speed all other concerns prove secondary. You devote yourself to horsepower and torque displacement, compression ratios and transmission shifts. Nothing else matters.
Ford (politely) disagrees. With the release of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, the Big Blue Oval proves that superior speeds should be paired with dynamic style. After all, why not have everything on the highway?
According to Bloomberg, the new Bullitt impresses with every mile. This lean-bodied pony (188-inches long, 75-inches wide, and 54-inches high) yields an aggressive stance, sitting on 19-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels. Bright belt-line moldings follow the crisp side panels; while LED fog lamps frame the front. Integrated vents draw attention to the sculpted hood; body-colored power side-view mirrors pair with tinted glass; and a decklid spoiler highlights the rear, creating a dramatic effect.
Further delighting drivers is the Bullitt’s classic Dark Highland Green coloring - which serves as a tribute to the original 1968 platform and is complemented by sleek black accents. It’s a design worthy of the 5.0L V8 engine (which generates 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque).
This is a true show-pony and it’s bringing high-style to Snoqualmie. To learn more about it contact our team today.
Bronze is lovely; silver is sleek; but one can't deny that gold steals all attention, earning admiration and envy in equal measures. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Ford decided to deliver a custom-colored Mustang GT to the auction world.
Get ready, Bellevue, for the 2018 Golden Knight.
According to Motor One, Ford has just unveiled its latest Mustang GT - a golden-striped pony that impresses from every angle. This platform boasts sculpted fenders and a bullet-like nose, with elongated teardrop headlamps emphasizing the lean fascia curves. Custom decals stretch across the side panels, while flashes of bright yellow cut down the hood. The polished aluminum rims feature 10-spoke designs; and a decklid spoiler yields a sporty effect in the rear.
The Golden Knight is a striking ride - and it will soon be placed on the auction block. Motor One explains that Ford is partnering with Barrett-Jackson to raise money for the Autism Foundation, with all proceeds from the event helping to further educational awareness and family support services for those impacted by the condition. The Big Blue Oval hopes to encourage all Mustang fans to participate.
Will you join the cause, Bellevue?

The trends are ever-changing; the fashions are always fading; and consumers prove both fast and fickle with their favor, with few brands able to secure their attentions. This is the unfortunate truth facing the auto industry… but not the Mustang.
Recently, Top Speed critics left their modern rides behind and slipped into the stylish cabin of the 1969 Mustang Mach 1. This powerful pony - despite boasting decades beneath its hood - stunned with deft handling and exceptional performance, roaring down the track with V8 precision. It proved that newer isn’t always better, defying every automotive trend.
According to Top Speed, the original Mach 1 delivers premium capability. Its 108-inch wheelbase glides down the lane, propelled by burly 7.0L Cobra Jet engine. This V8 yields 335 HP and 440 lb.-ft of torque, courtesy of its four-barrel configuration; and, when mated to a three-setting manual gearbox, it promises nimble responses, utilizing a stiff-spring suspension to accommodate changing roadways. A traction lock rear axle anchors the platform, ensuring balanced support; and the lightweight chassis (3,254 pounds) provides easy bursts of traction.
The 1969 Mustang Mach 1 offers a 0 to 60 run of less than six seconds - making it a viable track contender even by today’s standards. It’s no surprise to the Top Speed team, therefore, that this platform remains a favorite of Ford fans.

Less is never more. This is the philosophy that guides you - with the need for variety proving paramount and all limitations denied. You don’t want a single option. You instead want the ability to choose between everything… and that’s why the 2019 Fusion will soon tempt you to our dealership.
Ford delivers dual engine options with its latest Fusion - allowing drivers to find the perfect performance-bands for their commutes.
The 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle
This inline-four option promises exceptional economy, pairing an iVCT block with an 88-kWh electric motor. A lithium-ion battery pack supplements each rev, while an electronic continuously variable transmission bolsters sequencing. This allows the plug-in Fusion to achieve a total output of 104 MPGe in the city and 91 MPGe on the highway, ensuring maximum value at the pump.
The 1.5L EcoBoost
This block impresses with its four-cylinder design, pairing a tight 9.7:1 compression ratio with a six-speed automatic transmission. Both work seamlessly to enhance sequencing, allowing the Fusion to rev from 0 to 60 in less than nine seconds. Performance specs are high (175 HP and 175 lb.-ft of torque); and a short 3.7:1 final drive ratio ensures that operators reach the 6,000 RPM redline with ease.

Defend against every highway uncertainty with help from the 2019 Fusion S. This Ford sedan has been bolstered with a series of top-tier safety technologies - ensuring that drivers can confidently (and securely) navigate stop-and-go traffic. No longer fear the miles. Instead trust this platform to deliver comprehensive protection and support.
As CNET explains, the new Fusion S yields impressive capability. Automatic high-beams engage in low-light environments, utilizing halogen bulbs to illuminate corners and dark straightaways alike; while rain-sensing wipers use intuitive software to identify changing weather conditions, seamlessly adjusting their blade patterns to accommodate increasing moisture. Blind-spot monitoring technology anchors the side-view mirrors, offering wide-angle perspectives to gauge both distance and traffic patterns; while a pedestrian detection system alerts drivers to the presence of passerbyers, streaming real-time high-definition feeds to the SYNC display screen.
To further enhance safety the 2019 Fusion S also comes standard with collision-mitigation braking. This function detects approaching obstacles via front-mounted sensors. If drivers take no actions to avoid these concerns, then gentle pressure will be applied to the all-wheel ABS - decelerating speeds and lessening the chance of an impact.
The new Fusion provides motorists with the automated responses they deserve. To learn more about this sedan contact our team today!
It’s the end of an era. Soon Ford will discontinue its Fiesta fleet - with these sub-compacts heading to Europe, forced off of North American production lines. The final generation is poised to make its debut this fall, and critics are already protesting the loss of four-cylinder power.
They’re not, however, protesting the addition of the ST-Line.
As Car and Driver explains, the 2019 Fiesta will add a new model to its fleet - the ST-Line. This hot-hatch will serve as a spirited addition to every commute, with its 1.6L engine delivering 197 HP and 201 lb.-ft of torque. Most impressive, however, will be the suite of style upgrades this platform offers, with Ford fusing both the fascia and cabin with dynamic design.
The ST-Line stands on 16-inch alloy wheels. A rear spoiler delivers a sporty effect, while a cascading chrome grille defines the front. Wide fender flares are accentuated by custom badges; and dual exhaust tips rest beneath the LED signature tail-lights, perfectly complementing the five-door profile.
Inside this Fiesta discover embroidered cloth seating. A leather-wrapped steering wheel adds a sleek touch, while contrast stitching anchors the floor mats and headliners. Metallic trim creates a bold contrast on the instrument panels, highlighting their retro-inspired gauges.
The 2019 ST-Line will bring striking design to Sumner - and it will be a fitting conclusion to the Fiesta fleet.
The dimensions prove massive - with the 2018 Expedition Platinum reaching 210-inches in length, 84-inches in width, and 77-inches in height. This eight-passenger behemoth claims every lane as its own, and Puyallup drivers swallow nervously when they think of trying to control it. There’s no way, they believe, to tame such a big beast.
The new Expedition - as Automoblog explains - proves spry on the highway, despite its cavernous design. This is because Ford has fused it with a potent engine suite, meant to enhance performance on even the wildest Washington roads. Take a peek beneath the hood and find a 3.5L EcoBoost. This V6 yields impressive capability, generating 400 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission delivers SelectShift functionality, crisply navigating each gear ratio; while twin independent variable camshaft timing expedites combustion, increasing both intake levels and fuel distribution. A 10.0:1 compression ratio assures smooth sequencing; and dual air-to-air turbochargers send bursts of power to the block on command, allowing the platform to quickly reach the redline.
This provides Washington drivers with the performance they need - enabling the Expedition to maneuver across every road with ease. Don't be intimidated by this beast. It can be tamed with the press of a pedal.

Ease has come to the crossover market - with Ford fusing its 2018 Expedition Limited with a series of driver-focused technologies. Value now defines the fascia, ensuring effortless control with every mile.
As In Forum explains, the new Expedition Limited delivers convenience. Halogen beam projector-style headlamps pair with LED tail-lights to ensure peerless illumination, allowing drivers to easily maneuver around tight curves; while intermittent front and rear wipers respond to changing weather conditions, maximizing visibility through their automated engagements. An integrated de-icer strips away unwanted condensation from the windshield, and a window washer counters all seasonal muck.
To further enhance the driver experience, the Limited also boasts a hands-free rear lift-gate. This function eliminates the need for clumsy keys, instead utilizing integrated sensors to interpret entry/exit patterns. Operators need only to wave a foot beneath the bumper to smoothly open the door, granting immediate access to the cavernous bay (which spans 104.6 cu.-ft). Pair this with stainless steel roof rails and a Class IV trailer hitch for peerless cargo capabilities.
The 2018 Expedition is primed to impress - allowing riders to seize control of every highway. To learn more about this crossover (or to schedule a test-drive in one of our current models) contact our team today!
With the release of the 2018 Mustang Ford delivered more than performance to Washington - instead emphasizing tech prowess with every mile. This pony fleet was fused with the SYNC 3 console, ensuring wireless streaming and smartphone connectivity; and it bolstered interfacing through its dynamic voice-activated controls, utilizing a capacitive touchscreen to access endless information via the AppLink suite. Entertainment was assured.
It’s also now been rewarded.
According to USA Today, the 2018 Mustang ranks among the best tech options for drivers - earning recognition for its intuitive system and glitch-free controls. The SYNC 3 console was able to secure victory over luxury brands (including Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche), delivering top-marks across the JD Power board.
We’re not surprised. The Mustang’s revised infotainment center promises effortless interfacing. Google Search functionality allows for easy information, accepting both hands-free and push-button queries; while Waze software intuitively generates the most efficient routes, displaying them in high-definition 3D grids. Amazon Alexa promotes automated control, with operators able to customize more than 30,000 skill-sets (such as activating their garage doors or engaging the engine with a simple command); and available Apple CarPlay technology optimizes streaming, letting every feed to sync with the eight-inch touchscreen.
Through this each mile proves far simpler - branding the 2018 Mustang a true digital platform.
