The markers have long since faded - washed away by time and seasonal rains. You still try to follow them, though, squinting in vain at the road. Your head tilts in consideration, studying the lane and its imperceptible curve; and your car does the same, veering steadily over until…. You find yourself suddenly on the wrong side of the street.
The crisis is averted with a quick jerk of the steering wheel - but Ford suggests fusing your commutes with a less stressful method of protection. Consider the 2018 Expedition Limited and its Lane Keeping tech.
As the Chicago Sun Times explains, the 2018 Expedition Limited affords drivers greater security on the road. Its safety suite is bolstered by Lane Keeping Assistance - an intuitive program that maintains optimal positioning when traveling over 40 MPH. Body-mounted sensors scan both highway markers and vehicle pitch, assessing each through micro-second assessments. If the platform begins to stray, this system will automatically launch a dual-response strategy:
Notifications: audio and visual cues will be released, alerting the driver to the issue. These will be streamed via the eight-inch SYNC 3 console and will feature gridline instructions of how to proceed in the most effective manner.
Steering Adjustments: the column will be gently engaged, maneuvering the Expedition back toward its proper alignment. This promotes balanced handling and lessens the chance of a collision.
The Lane Keeping system enables drivers to safely respond to highway straying - branding this a perfect option for commuters and families alike. To learn more about this function contact our team today!
Every expectation is tailored to performance - with drivers giddy over the 2018 Mustang and its exceptional power (up to 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque). This pony can conquer each mile, yielding a top-speed ratio of 157 MPH.
As Forbes explains, however, the 2018 Mustang delivers more than performance. It also boasts superior tech, bringing the Digital Dash system to Burien.
The Forbes team has just revealed that the Digital Dash - an integrated 12-inch LCD console - is the first of its kind. No other mass-produced sports coupe offers such impeccable feature control; and this elevates the Mustang from rough rider to show-pony. Activate the system via the steering wheel-mounted toggles and discover a wealth of options, including:
Performance Metrics - gauge fuel levels; observe RPM elevations; and select new gear ratios. The Digital Dash allows drivers to quickly access key information, with real-time monitoring provided for all engine functions.
Drive-Modes - customize performance with help from this feature. Quickly toggle through the Mustang’s available settings (Normal, which maintains a steady power-band and low gear ratio; Track, which enhances the redline and diverts torque to the rear wheels; and Sport, which opens the valve system to enhance fuel intake levels and improve HP) and choose the perfect one.
Visuals - the Digital Dash also allows drivers to tailor the cabin design, with ambient options integrated within it. Choose from a wide selection of colors (including Ford’s popular Ice Blue) and fill the interior with LCD light.
This feature delivers superior control over the 2018 Mustang, enabling drivers to define every mile. To learn more contact us today!
True performance extends beyond the engine. This is the philosophy embraced by the 2018 Mustang GT - with its entire chassis tailored for rally thrills. Every line has been meticulously sculpted to deliver an aerodynamic (and immersive) experience to Kirkland drivers; and it comes as no surprise, therefore, that even its cabin yields a track-inspired design.
Slide inside the GT and discover RECARO technology.
As Digital Trends explains, the new Mustang GT boasts RECARO seats. These bucket-style options are engineered to withstand every acceleration - blending proprietary ergonomics with rugged materials. Their shapes are painstakingly contoured, offering high thigh bolsters and inverted sides to cradle the rider. Integrated lumbar support maintains proper spinal alignment, while active headrests lessen the impact of each curve (their velour materials absorb friction and reduce neck strain). Screw-mounted panels and bolt slots seamlessly secure the base, allowing the chairs to remain perfectly situated as speed and trajectories change; and high-quality foam inserts stabilize the cushions in the wake of a .97 G skid-pad ratio.
These seats are intended for aggressive maneuvering - allowing drivers to push the 2018 GT to its limits. No longer will a four-second 0 to 60 rev leave passengers overwhelmed. Instead they’ll remain securely tucked within their RECARO carbon-fiber shells.

It’s a search for protection. The roads beyond your safe suburbia too often prove dangerous - populated by broken pavement and sudden curves, the uneasy blitz of traffic. You seek for ways to counter this chaos… and Ford provides them.
Slip behind the wheel of the 2019 Flex SE and discover peerless collision responses.
As The News Wheel explains, the 2019 Flex SE is engineered to withstand all challenges. Flanking its cabin is a suite of advanced airbags (including side-impact and dual-frontal options). These pair with inflatable outboard belts to shield passengers from harm, using rollover sensors to promote a seamless activation. A high-definition rearview camera streams real-time feeds to the central console, warning of potential dangers through a series of audio and visual cues; while 3D displays showcase the most efficient reversal routes and eliminate the chance of a sudden impact (their neon gridlines measure both distance and alignment, ensuring that the platform is perfectly poised between lane markers). A tire monitoring system immediately alerts operators to a loss of pressure; and integrated anchors accommodate child-seats with ease, securing them in proper mounting positions to reduce the chance of whiplash.
To further ensure highway protection the 2019 Flex SE also features zone-body construction - with its chassis bolstered with high-strength steel panels that absorb (and disperse) friction. This greatly lessens the force of a collision, shielding riders from injury.
The 2019 Flex SE proves ready for every mile. To learn more about this platform contact our team today!
Custom performance has come to the mid-size market - with Ford unveiling its 2018 Focus. Bolstered by four distinct engine options, this sedan connects drivers to bespoke accelerations and tailored economy. No longer will the one-size-suits-all sensibility define the Washington highways.

Across Tacoma comes a whisper - with critics sharing secrets, quietly volleying specs and predictions. They’re debating the 2019 Ranger, trying to guess how Ford will update its design for a modern market.
We suggest that they stop assuming and start looking - because the 2019 Ranger has been spied!
According to PickupTrucks.com, the new Ranger has just been spotted in Michigan. The mid-size truck (which was originally produced from 1983 to 2012) was captured on film by quick-fingered fans; and its fascia design proves revealing from every angle.
Ford has transformed the Ranger into a modern masterpiece. Though it still boasts a slim profile (its cab configuration is expected to hover at six-feet), this truck delivers ample style. Sculpted fenders frame the front, drawing attention to the smooth character lines and clamshell hood. A mesh grille features custom badge details, while halogen projector headlamps wrap around the fascia. The bumper seamlessly follows the curve of the body and is molded in jet-black carbon; and all-season tires bring deep treads to every mile.
A full list of available colors hasn’t yet been provided. Critics anticipate, though, that Ford will pair this platform with the same palette as its bigger F-150 brother (Oxford White, Race Red, and Shadow Black are expected).
The 2019 Ranger is currently scheduled for a late-fall release. To learn more about this Ford pick-up contact our team today!
A new fascia dominates the crossover market - with Toyota, Chevrolet, and GMC forced to yield their sales crowns to the 2018 Expedition XLT. This Ford platform has been thoroughly refreshed, introducing drivers to the smooth performance they crave; and, as USA Today explains, this has translated into a dealer surge (more than 5,000 total units were tallied in June).
We’re not surprised. The 2018 Expedition XLT proves a seamless option for families, with its newly re-tuned suspension system allowing them to conquer the roughest roads with ease.
According to USA Today, the new XLT impresses on the backroads. Its fully-boxed frame sits on a multi-link independent suspension - which intuitively adapts to changing terrains through an available electronic limited-slip axle (this stiffens the chassis as needed to reduce friction). Front and rear stabilizer bars maintain a balanced ride; while traction control assesses torque demands, automatically sending bursts of power to the RWD to maximize grippage. Hill Descent technology improves performance on sharp inclines, regulating both speed and braking functions; and an optional trailer controller reinforces the steering column to promote more fluid responses when hauling heavy loads.
These technologies provide a smooth cabin experience - allowing passengers to conquer long hauls with confidence. The XLT has been tailored for all adventures, bringing Roll Stability Control precision to every mile.
