Sanity is measured in inches. This is the truth you’ve learned - with a confined cabin and a miniscule cargo bay wreaking havoc on your patience. You can’t bear another day cloistered in that too-tiny car.... and neither can your family.
Ford understands - which is why it’s fused the 2018 Explorer with ample space.
As Kelley Blue Book explains, the new Explorer proves a balm for the weary. Within its expansive seven-passenger cabin waits a bevy of space to sprawl in:
First Row Head Room: 41.4 inches.
First Row Leg Room: 42.9 inches.
Second Row Head Room: 40.6 inches.
Second Row Leg Room: 39.5 inches
Third Row Head Room 37.8 inches.
Third Row Leg Room: 33.3 inches.
The massive cabin - which boasts a 112.5-inch wheelbase - delivers superior comfort, blending split-folding leather seats with plush soft-touch materials. The 151.7 cu.-ft of passenger volume ensures premium space for Auburn families, while the massive rear bay boasts 81.7 cu.-ft of storage (easily accommodating every off-road toy). According to Kelley Blue Book, these numbers leave the Explorer’s competition in the dust - with even the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee unable to keep pace.

What is the limit of perfection? With the release of the 2018 Mustang GT Ford wishes to find out - fusing this already best-in-class pony with a Level 2 Performance Pack. Prepare, Renton, for a circuit experience like no other.
As the NY Daily News explains, the 2018 Mustang GT has been paired with a Performance Pack. This advanced suite (dubbed Level 2 by Ford) promises staggering capability - pushing the 5.0L V8 engine beyond all expectations. Anchoring the platform are 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (an upgrade from the standard 18-inch rims) and 305/30R19 Michelin Pilot Sport tires (these boast wider interlocks than the base 235/50R18 Pirelli options and lower the overall stance to improve aerodynamics). Electric power steering yields a deft ride; while a CPU-tuned electronic stability control system provides superior cornering, utilizing gyroscopic technology to maintain optimum balance. Enlarged front splitters pair with a rear spoiler to decrease friction; and magnetic damping delivers precise responses from the suspension, allowing the pony to smoothly respond to every straightaway.
This all pairs with 15-inch Brembo brake rotors - which ably support the engine, smoothly decelerating from each 460 HP rev. Drivers will never feel overwhelmed by the GT’s power.
With the introduction of the Level 2 Performance Pack Ford unleashes a true track beast on Washington - and we can’t wait to slip behind the wheel. To learn more about this platform contact our team today!
With the release of the 2018 Expedition Platinum MAX Ford redefines the crossover market - introducing drivers to sleek styling and dynamic detailing. This is no ordinary platform. Instead it’s a boldly designed family-hauler that shatters all expectations.
As CNBC explains the Platinum MAX proves unforgettable. Boasting an aggressive frame (which measures 222-inches long, 84-inches wide, and 76-inches high), this crossover demands attention. Body-colored bumpers cling to the fascia, emphasizing the sleek curve of the fenders; while an aluminum grille delivers a chic satin finish. Roof-rails showcase the body’s sharp rise, and a center-mounted stop-lamp yields a brilliant burst of light. At the rear the hands-free lift-gate provides tinted glass, while LED tail-lights flank the sides.
All of this is complemented by power-deployable running boards - which line the panels and deliver stainless steel accents. These are polished to a high shine and catch the light from every angle.
The 2018 Expedition Platinum MAX has been painstakingly tailored for the modern market; and Burien drivers will find themselves enchanted by its bold new design.

Variety is no longer a luxury within the crossover market. It’s instead the cornerstone upon which decisions lay - with drivers seeking custom performance options and bespoke power. The one-size-fits-all philosophy simply won’t suffice.
Ford agrees - which is why it’s paired the 2018 Explorer with a dynamic engine suite.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2018 Explorer delivers superior power - allowing drivers to choose the right engines for their off-roading needs. Unlike its competitors (which include the Honda Pilot and the Nissan Armada), this crossover offers custom performance through:
Standard Engine: 3.5L V6
Torque: 255 lb.-ft.
Secondary Engine: 2.3L Inline Four
Torque: 319 lb.-ft.
Each Explorer engine yields superior capability - enabling drivers to define their experiences. The standard powerpoint proves best for everyday adventures, emphasizing a steady performance-band; while the inline-four option promotes economy (expect up to 19 MPGs in the city and 27 MPGs on the highway). The twin-turbo strength of the V6 brands it ideal for all-terrain fun, with its towering redline (5,500 RPM) easily accommodating each mile.

The sport coupe market has just received a V8 upgrade - with Ford unveiling its 2018 Mustang GT to Kirkland. This platform promises class-leading power with every mile, boasting a newly tuned engine that will decimate the competition.
Get ready for the ultimate pony ride.
According the Road and Track, the 2018 Mustang GT dominates every rev - with its 5.0L V8 yielding 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. This leaves all competitors in the dust, including its 2017 predecessor (which generated only 435 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque). The redline has been raised to 7,500 RPM to ensure sport-tuned thrills.
How did Ford achieve such a powerful output? It carefully calibrated the GT’s engine, fusing it with a series of advanced technologies to increase intake levels and optimize fuel. Direct and port injection systems combine to precisely balance resource distribution, creating a steady performance-band; while the valves have been enlarged to promote increased air-flow. Plasma-coated cylinders move smoothly with every rev, effortlessly enduring the intense friction of the redline; and aluminum parts deliver a lightweight design to lessen overall strain. This pony was engineered to run.

According to Jalopnik, the 2020 Mustang has just been spied - with Ford bringing a fully camouflaged version to the Michigan streets. Despite the layers of vinyl and plastic, however, critics have been able to decipher the Shelby’s profile… and they’re impressed.
A wide hood vent anchors this platform, housing a 5.0L V8 beneath. The C-Pillars are narrow, creating a sharper roofline slope; while rocker moldings cling to the sides, highlighting the lean body. LED headlamps can be glimpsed along the front, delivering a signature slitted shape; and, though the grille is obscured, critics anticipate a hexagonal mesh design that will prove impossible to ignore.
Craving more than mere style? Jalopnik notes that the 2020 Mustang will also boast staggering power - with its HP ratios expected to exceed 700. This will bring track-worthy performance to the Kirkland streets, allowing drivers to achieve a 0 to 60 run in less than four seconds.
Are you as excited as we are?

Crossovers have conquered the Kirkland market. Down every highway they come - wide-fendered, high-roofed, and growling with each mile. Their popularity is assured and their sales are impressive. To challenge their supremacy would demand a car unlike any other.
Ford believes it has such a car - the 2018 Fiesta Active.
According to New Atlas, the Fiesta Active is a bold little hatchback that might sway consumers away from SUVs. Though currently only available in Europe, Ford is considering shipping this platform overseas - and critics are already celebrating.
Beneath the hood purrs a 1.0L inline-four engine, which yields a peppy 140 HP. EcoBoost technology assures maximum mileage, securing up to 56 MPGs on the highway; while active grille shutters pair with a sleek fascia to counter friction, allowing the platform to efficiently rev down every street. All-season tires promote ease, with their heavy treads transitioning from summer to winter; and LED headlamps deliver automatic high-beam engagements to counter low-visibility terrains.
To further delight drivers, the 2018 Fiesta boasts an expansive rear cabin - with approximately 30 cu.-ft offered. This marks a 10% improvement over its SE and ST predecessors, and it allows the platform to keep pace with hulking crossovers (storage woes are things of the past).
The new Fiesta delivers an everyday sensibility that proves impossible to deny - and it will make a worthy addition to the North American market. We have our fingers crossed that Ford will submit to public opinion and bring this hot hatch here.
The future of performance isn’t merely bright. It’s instead luminous - with Ford revving toward total chart domination by 2020. The Big Blue Oval recently unveiled its upcoming fleet of crossovers, compacts, and full-ton beasts; and critics across Seattle have already started celebrating.
We think you’ll soon join them.
As TFL Truck explains, Ford’s latest platforms rank among the most anticipated vehicles in North America - with class-leading performance expected across a wide range of verticals.
The 2020 Bronco (which should debut late next year) will redefine utility - with a sport-tuned suspension and a rugged V8 engine rumored. This platform will serve as a direct competitor of the new Jeep Wrangler and will re-introduce drivers to all-wheel capability.
The 2019 Ranger (which should arrive this fall) is among the most eagerly anticipated models in Seattle. Critics and drivers alike have been clamoring for a compact alternative to traditional half-tons; and this truck should deliver robust V6 performance and segment-leading payloads (more than 3,000 pounds is expected).
The 2020 F-250 Super Duty will shatter all performance records, with its rumored 6.7L V6 engine pairing with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Early spec sheets suggest that this will ensure an overall power increase of 10%, allowing the truck to haul more than 13,000 pounds.
TFL Truck notes that these platforms - in addition to the 2019 F-150 Raptor and 2020 F-350 Super Duty - are generating heavy interest across North America; and each should yield massive sales for Ford upon their release.

The miles prove unforgiving - leaping from sharp turns to rocky straightaways - and too often do drivers find their vehicles lacking. Chrome cracks; engines sputter; and suspensions rattle with every slippery terrain. The Washington byways aren’t for the faint-hearted (or the weak-powered).
This is why the 2019 Ranger will prove such a vital addition to every mile.
According to Auto Week, Ford has entered the official testing phase of its Ranger production process - pitting this platform against the elements in a grueling series of stress tests. Recently the Big Blue Oval entered its Arizona proving grounds, wanting to see how the truck would perform under the blazing sun.
As expected, the Ranger delivered class-leading results.
Anchoring this platform is a Terrain Management System - which delivers intuitive gear modes to accommodate changing inclines and conditions. With the press of a button the all-wheel-drive can be engaged, transferring torque to the tires as needed and regulating each rev. Friction is increased and balance (courtesy of an electronic locking differential) is assured. Advanced sensors then track the roll-rate of each mile, quickly assessing all performance metrics. Should any be found lacking, the Ranger will instantly adjust its trajectory and deliver a perfect realignment.
To further impress, the lightweight aluminum chassis delivers superior protection against both heat and rain - with its military-grade compounds sealed with an available Clear-Coat glaze. This maintains the integrity of every panel and counters concerns of rust (no matter how extreme the weather).
The 2019 Ranger is ready for every road - even the ones found in Washington. To learn more contact us today!
History has (once again) repeated itself - with the arrival of the 2018 Mustang GT delivering vintage-inspired style. Ford recognizes that some trends prove truly timeless; and this is why it’s paired this pony with a distinctive 60’s sensibility, allowing Tacoma drivers to indulge in the past… without compromising present-day power.
According to AutoBlog, the 2018 GT yields a bold look - with Ford drawing inspiration from its past ponies. The muscular body (188-inches long, 75-inches wide, and 54-inches high) boasts a sweeping roof and a clamshell hood; while subtle character lines trace the side panels. LED headlamps follow the sharp fender curves, and chrome detailing outlines the custom badges along the rear. The signature Mustang emblem anchors the mesh grille; while the black-spoke tires deliver a bright contrast to the metallic colors (which include Race Red, Ingot White, and the new Orange Fury).
These style cues combine to ensure a dynamic sport coupe - with the Mustang impressing from every angle. Don’t fear, though, Tacoma: this platform trades its retro look for modern power beneath the hood, with a 5.0L V8 growling with each mile. Generate up to 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque, taking advantage of the smooth glide of a 10-speed automatic transmission and a robust RWD.
