No cinephile are you. Films prove disposable - watched, forgotten, and ignored. You devote your time instead to other pursuits, preferring to experience life beyond a screen.
Slipping behind the wheel of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, therefore, doesn’t thrill you. After all, what kind of value could a movie-inspired pony bring?
Allow us to show you.
As The Drive explains, the new Mustang Bullitt delivers exceptional performance - with its 5.0L Ti-VCT engine generating a staggering 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. No love for the namesake film is needed to appreciate the roar of a V8. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, this ride sails down the lane. A 3.73 Torsen limited-slip differential anchors the rear, intuitively correcting suspension tension to ensure balanced handling; while the chassis boasts both EPAS and ABS tuning to maximize control. Monotube shocks promise deft maneuvering, and rear cross-axis joints pair with optional magnetic dampers to provide nimble articulation.
The result is a pony that can stampede from 0 to 60 in approximately four seconds - rendering every driver (whether a film-fan or not) impressed.
Are you ready for an adrenaline-packed ride, Tacoma?

Mere months have passed since the 2018 EcoSport arrived in Seattle - bringing European-inspired styling and pure American utility to the highway. This crossover has been met with much acclaim, with both critics and consumers praising its impactful design.
Ford, however, is never content to rest - and a new EcoSport is already making its way to the proving grounds.
According to AutoBlog, a prototype for the 2020 EcoSport has just been spotted. This platform - which features an elongated body, affording a more convenient five-door profile - recently made its debut in Michigan, and critics were quick to capture a few revealing images. Wide fender flares anchor the chassis, delivering a sporty look; while four-lugged hubs pair with all-season tires. The suspension has been lifted (no official specs have yet been provided, but early estimates place the upgrade at more than an inch to ensure easier backroad travel); and the roofline yields a Fiesta-inspired curve.
This hatchback will impress on the Seattle streets - with AutoBlog noting teardrop headlamps and a widened grille. These elements provide an athletic fascia, branding the EcoSport perfect for commuters and sportsmen alike.

It’s an expectation of efficiency. Drivers hear the EcoBoost name and wrinkle their noses, certain that this engine suite will yield none of the performance they crave. It is, they think, meant solely for slow sedans. There’s no place for it beneath the hood of the 2019 Mustang.
Allow Ford to remedy this misconception.
As Boston.com explains, the 2019 Mustang boasts EcoBoost capability, courtesy of a 2.3L engine. While this technology does indeed promise efficiency - elevating ratios to 21 MPGs in the city and 35 MPGs on the highway - it demands no sacrifice of speed. Instead it pairs Ti-VCT functionality (which enhances intake sequences) with direct-injection software (which maximizes resources, responding to redline spikes to ensure optimal fuel distribution). A six-gear manual transmission ably assists every rev; and custom drive-modes allow operators to define their performance needs, controlling the power-band output with the press of a button.
Through this, the 2019 Mustang promises 310 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque - roaring from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.1 seconds.
Don’t be fooled by the EcoBoost moniker. Instead let us show you just how powerful this pony can be.

Popularity is fickle in the automotive world. Each day sees the rise - and fall - of cars, with consumer interest proving impossible to predict. Preferences changes; trends shift; and sustainability is forgotten…. almost.
Ford has managed to defy this fair-weather pattern - with its Expedition earning long-term loyalty from Washington.
According to The Car Connection, the Expedition ranks among the most popular cars in North America - with drivers keeping it for an average of nine years. Why is this number so impressive? Critics note that most vehicles boast a life-span of only seven years. This delivers a staggering 21% difference and it showcases the reputation that Ford has crafted, with its SUV revving past the competition (including the Toyota 4Runner, the Honda Odyssey, and Chevrolet Suburban).
We’re not surprised. The Expedition has always proven a top-seller on our lot - and the 2018 version is no exception. Boasting an eight-passenger frame, this SUV effortlessly accommodates families and adventurers alike. Its cavernous cabin hosts 104.6 cu.-ft of cargo space, allowing it to adapt to every need; while flat-folding seating yields custom configurations. A series of overhead and under-mounted consoles pair with cushion-back pockets to provide ample support; and roof-rack rails assure easy hauling, delivering more than 1,700 payload pounds. The entire platform is tailored for day-to-day storage… and that makes it a worthy addition to any mile.

Value proves timeless. This is the truth embraced by the 2013 Explorer. Despite boasting more than a few years beneath its hood, this SUV remains a viable all-terrain option - with noted industry leader, Kelley Blue Book, recently celebrating it.
According to KBB, the 2013 Explorer is a worthy addition to any used vehicle search. Effortlessly surpassing the competition (including the Nissan Pathfinder), this platform connects drivers to both dynamic handling and superior power. Anchored by a standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6, it generates 290 HP (at 6,500 RPMs) and 255 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPMs). A six-speed automatic transmission provides nimble responses, utilizing SelectShift technology to identify the optimum gear ratios for changing roadways; while power-assisted steering promises seamless electric control. An independent suspension allows this seven-passenger ride to smoothly maneuver over any terrain; and the inclusion of an optional AWD further impresses, offering maximum traction with every mile.
This, KBB argues, brands the 2013 Explorer an ideal option for families and adventurers alike. Its rugged architecture can accommodate all roadways - revving through summer sun and winter snow on 17-inch steel wheels. No other used SUV delivers such strong performance.

In 1965 Ford introduced the Washington market to pony power - with its Mustang delivering a potent six-cylinder engine, an advanced alternator system, and a rear-wheel-drive. While each generation has seen the rise (and fall) of some of these specs, the RWD has proved enduring. It is the cornerstone on which this fleet rests.
That may change.
According to The Drive, Ford is contemplating a class-shattering upgrade for its seventh generation Mustang. In 2021 it may choose to add an all-wheel system, allowing consumers (for the first time) to experience something beyond a RWD. This has left many riders - understandably - shaken, but the Big Blue Oval insists that there’s value in the idea.
By changing the car’s architecture - the chassis will be completely revised for this version, with Ford borrowing elements from its Explorer to ensure a more balanced wheel alignment and a wider fender profile - new performance metrics will be possible. The high-output torque, it’s argued, can be controlled with greater precision; and cornering will prove easier, thanks to an even distribution of traction among the 17-inch A/S tires. This could allow the Mustang to exceed its current capabilities (475 HP) and provide top-tier power.
We must admit: that sounds intriguing.

Bigger isn’t always better. Ford urges drivers to remember this - fusing its 2018 Mustang with a compact four-cylinder. This engine proves smaller than its V8 brother, but it’s no less impressive on the highway. Prepare for a premium pairing of power and economy.
As the Chicago Sun Times explains, the 2018 Mustang boasts a 2.3L four-cylinder engine. This powerpoint anchors its EcoBoost Fastback trim, allowing the platform to deliver 310 HP (at 5,550 RPMs) and 350 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPMs). A 9.5:1 compression ratio promises fluid acceleration, while mechanical bucket valves ensure maximum air intake levels. Fuel is delivered via a direct injection system, which intuitively assess the demands of the performance-band to provide precise distribution; and a 10-speed automatic transmission bolsters the system through SelectShift technology and optional paddle activation.
This, critics note, ensures superior capability - with the 2018 Mustang delivering both fast speeds (it charges from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.3 seconds) and class-leading economy (21 MPGs in the city and 32 MPGs on the highway). Drivers experience no compromises, just rewards.

Searching for premium pony power? We suggest visiting the Ford corral - where the 2020 Mustang GT500 has just been spotted.
According to critics, specs for this show-pony have surfaced - and Snoqualmie Mustang fans will soon find themselves introduced to the best in sport coupe performance. A new 5.2L V8 will anchor the chassis, delivering 720 HP (at 7,500 RPMs) and 650 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,500 RPMs). A six-speed manual transmission will impress, yielding impeccable gear control; while its 3.73 final setting will enable smooth accelerations, promoting a faster combustion sequence and less downshifting. Take advantage of a carbon fiber driveline, which promises a lightweight design (thereby reducing engine stress); and utilize the electronic rear differential on every curve, trusting its intuitive locking capabilities to stabilize the suspension and eliminate under-steerage.
The GT500 promises exceptional performance - with critics noting that its top-speed ratio should exceed 190 MPH. This will let it blast past the competition and ensure a first-place finish with every mile.

For months critics have scrounged the online world - seeking out scraps of information, trying to decipher gossip from truth. The 2020 Explorer was soon to be revealed, and they wanted to ensure that they missed none of the excitement.
We’ll spare you those same midnight searches, Seattle. You can instead just relax and read.
As the CarBuzz team recently learned, the 2020 Explorer will prove a robust option for the highway. Boasting three powertrain options - including a 2.3L four-cylinder, a 3.3L V6, and 3.0L V6 - this SUV will dominate every mile, pairing twin-turbochargers with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This will yield class-leading performance ratios (HP is expected to exceed 465); and, when combined with the available hybrid configuration (which will deliver regenerative braking, EcoBoost technology, and SmartGauge monitoring), it will also ensure efficiency. No official specs have been released for this fleet but critics anticipate an economy upgrade of more than 10%.
To further delight drivers, the 2020 Explorer will also feature both RWD and AWD options - allowing them to customize their performance needs. Both of these powertrains will perfectly complement the body-on-frame design and ensure all-terrain capability.
The 2020 Explorer will deliver bold power to the Seattle streets. To learn more about this Ford SUV contact our team today!
Prepare, Seattle, for unprecedented speed. Ford is revving up for a track-worthy experience, bringing its 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet to the North American market; and critics are already salivating over the spec sheets.
Let us pass you a handkerchief before you do the same.
According to CNET, the 2018 Cobra Jet will celebrate 50 years of performance. This Mustang variant will make a brief return to the Seattle streets - bolstering every mile with circuit capability. Peek under the hood and discover a potent 5.2L V8, complemented by a Whipple supercharger and a 10-speed automatic transmission. An adjustable coilover suspension promises impeccable cornering, while the all-wheel disc brakes have been fused with ‘low drag’ technology (ensuring more fluid stoppage). A roll cage will further impress, delivering a true track experience.
The 2018 Cobra Jet promises extraordinary power - with an estimated top-speed of more than 150 MPH. This, CNET explains, should translate into a quarter-mile run of less than eight seconds; and that would allow this pony to roar past the competition (the Dodge Demon, for example, requires 9.65 seconds to complete that circuit lap).
Are you as excited as we are?
