Green no longer proves the color of envy. Instead it promises power - with Ford unveiling its 2019 Mustang to Seattle. This pony delivers a striking hue for the year, painting the newly revised powertrain in bold emerald stripes. Prepare to impress with every mile.
According to Auto Evolution, the 2019 Mustang (which is scheduled for a late fall release) boasts a new color - Spinel Green. This shade highlights the platform’s sculpted lines, proving a sharp contrast to the chrome grille and metallic mirror caps. It also serves as a worthy replacement to the now retired Gotta Have It: an earthy tone Ford removed from the fleet in 2017. Pony fans will no longer have to endure traditional white and black. Instead they can rev through Seattle in style.
Spinel Green delivers more than a sleek look, however. It also promises exceptional performance - with Ford combining it with the exclusive Level 2 package. This aftermarket option allows drivers to achieve fast accelerations, fusing the Mustang with sport-tuned fascia upgrades. MagneRide shock absorbers improve handling, creating a stable ride; 19-inch wheels glide across every road; and a front splitter pairs with a revised rear lid spoiler to counter drag and reduce friction.
This pony is ready to run.

Speed proves the great foe of the crossover world - with big-wheeled machines hampered by their high rooflines and staggering weights. They are graceless while cornering; and every acceleration leaves drivers stumbling down the lane.
With the release of the 2019 Edge, Ford will change this - connecting Seattle consumers to robust power on the highway. Size will no longer impede performance. Instead this platform will compete with every mid-size speedster.
According to Consumer Reports, the 2019 Edge is ready to impress. Beneath its hood rests a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine - which yields 250 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque. 21-inch wheels glide smoothly over every terrain; an available AWD improves performance, delivering strut suspension responses and EPA steering capabilities; and the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission (complete with rotary dial) ensures crisp handling.
When these elements combine, they allow the burly 2019 Edge to achieve a top-speed ratio of 130 MPH - letting drivers achieve pedal-to-the-metal thrills without sacrificing crossover comfort.
Are you as impressed as we are?
The 2019 Edge (which has just made its Detroit Auto Show debut) will soon arrive in Seattle. We anticipate that this platform will prove a popular addition to our lot - and we, therefore, encourage drivers to schedule an early test-drive to avoid the last-minute rush.

The connection proves weak - a digital line tentatively tethered to an infotainment system. With every mile it flickers and fades, unable to sustain a steady interface; and, as you launch (yet another) application, it finally breaks entirely. You can access neither Internet nor satellite stream.
Ford knows that this is too great a frustration to bear - which is why it’s delivering premium entertainment to Seattle with its 2019 Edge!
According to CNET, the entire Edge fleet (the SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport) has been upgraded for the new year. An eight-inch touchscreen anchors the SYNC 3 system, which pairs Siri Eyes Free technology with wireless Bluetooth links. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software ensure seamless smartphone interfacing, while the integration of Amazon Alexa provides voice-activated ease (enabling drivers to interact with their favorite social sites and news feeds). Twelve speakers surround the cabin, and available SiriusXM radio pushes out quality tunes.
To further impress tech fans, the 2019 Edge also features 4G hot-spots - allowing the car to accommodate up to 10 devices at once. No longer struggle to connect with content. Engage instead with ease!
With the release of the 2019 Edge, Ford is redefining crossover capability. To learn more about this fleet’s available infotainment options contact us today.
Too often do appearances prove deceiving - with Seattle adventurers certain that the compact lines of the 2019 Ranger render it obsolete on the backroads. This pick-up, they contend, is meant instead for suburban errands. It couldn’t survive beyond the concrete.
The Sound Ford team knows, however, that bigger isn’t always better - and the 2019 Ranger is instead an ideal off-road option. Discover the value of a compact experience.
According to Automobile Magazine, the new Ranger is primed for fun - with its available Off-Road Package delivering full-throttle responses. A front bash plate cuts through every obstacle, while frame-bolted skid plates defend the undercarriage. An uprated suspension provides smooth handling on unfamiliar terrains, utilizing both Trail Control and Hill Descent technology to optimize handling; and all-season tires further improve responses, accommodating changing conditions with ease.
The true cornerstone of the Off-Road Package, however, is its Terrain Management System. This feature delivers four unique drive modes (Normal, Grass/Gravel, Mud, and Sand) - adjusting the transfer case ratios as needed to ensure nimble revs. This Ford truck can effortlessly adapt to every environment, pushing its available 4x4 chassis to the limits.
Never underestimate the power of the Ranger.

The mid-size market will soon be transformed - with Ford gearing up for the ultimate pick-up revival. Prepare, Seattle, as the 2019 Ranger revs toward the horizon.
According to the Detroit News, Ford will soon unveil its 2019 Ranger. Prototypes of this platform have been spied for the last few months - but they were all so heavily camouflaged that even the most keen-eyed critics couldn’t discern their upgrades. This will no longer prove a problem, however, since the Big Blue Oval is planning an official U.S. debut. Only days separate drivers from their first glimpse of this mid-size pick-up.
Confused by that description? Allow us to explain. The 2019 Ranger will no longer serve as a traditional compact. Instead Ford is fusing this truck with an elongated body - allowing it to compete directly with the Chevrolet Colorado and the Toyota Tundra. While it will remain less imposing than the F-Series, its entire frame with be raised to ensure a more convenient off-road ride. Available trims will include the XLT, XL, and Lariat; and they should be anchored by a standard 2.3L Ecoboost and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Are you excited?
No official release date has been provided for the 2019 Ranger. We hope, however, to see it enter production before the summer ends - providing ample time for Ford to launch a full-scale campaign by Christmas.
Envy is a nasty emotion - and yet we can’t help but turn green. The Sound Ford team looks toward Europe with longing, knowing that its drivers have what we don’t; and we feel the pettiness rising. It’s simply not fair. Why should England have all of the pony fun?
According to New Atlas, the cobbled streets of London will soon rattle with V8 power. Steeda - an aftermarket performance tuner and frequent partner of Ford - has just unveiled its 2018 Mustang Enforcer; and it seems poised to redefine the entire market. Peek beneath the hood and discover a robust 5.0L engine, capable of yielding 480 HP and 485 lb.-ft of torque. A new cold air intake system promotes superior performance, while a sport exhaust system frames the rear. The inclusion of a strut tower brace improves stability, allowing the car to corner with precision; and progressive rate springs deliver a fluid ride.
The 2018 Enforcer is designed to impress - with its sculpted chassis flanked by a front splitter and a ducktail rear spoiler. These provide a sharp style, marking this pony as a true track competitor. Check it out!
Ford has yet to confirm whether the 2018 Mustang Enforcer will make its way across the pond - but our team is keeping a close watch on the horizon. We’re hoping to see a flash of Steeda steel-gray soon.

The future of performance will soon arrive - with Ford revealing its 2019 Edge to North America. No longer will coupes and convertibles dominate the high-speed market. Instead this sport-tuned hatch will redefine every consumer expectation, yielding class-shattering power with every rev.
Are you ready?
According to Motor Trend, Ford has just unveiled its 2019 Edge - and the critics are already salivating over their spec sheets. This crossover promises staggering performance, connecting Seattle to a 2.7L Ecoboost V6 engine. This ensures 335 HP and 380 lb.-ft of torque, with an Intelligent AWD maximizing every response. A new 10-speed automatic transmission fuses this platform with deft handling, while an e-shifter rotary dial allows drivers to quickly access exclusive sport mode functions (which engage the manual paddle shifters to bolster redline ratios). An advanced damping system now enhances the suspension, helping to promote smooth control across every terrain.
When these elements combine, they allow the 2019 Edge to roar down the track - delivering a 0 to 60 time of only 5.6 seconds. This is no common hatchback. Instead it’s a fierce competitor that will dominate every mile.
Are you as thrilled as we are?
The 2019 Edge will enter production later this year. Be sure to contact our team for further specs and scheduling.
The future proves uncertain for the Ford Fusion. Recent rumor rumblings have flooded the Seattle streets - hinting at the possibility of a halted production schedule and a total fleet restructuring. Critics have been tossing speculations onto their social feeds; and no one seems to know the truth.
Allow us to put your mind at ease: the Fusion will continue.
As Cars.com explains, Ford has recently examined its Fusion line-up - trying to determine why sales have slipped and what role the platform will play within the future. This has led to rampant speculation that the entire marque will be scrapped. We know, however, that the Big Blue Oval is merely planning to tweak its performance capabilities and underpinning designs.
The Fusion - which should return with a brand new model by 2020 - is currently being stripped to the basics by Ford. Its engineers are seeking to reinvent the nameplate (which still proves popular in the European and Asian markets). While a previously planned 2019 version has been stalled, Cars.com notes that others are still currently on the assembly line; and, when they arrive, they’ll be transformed into more formidable mid-size contenders.
No specs have been provided for the future Ford Fusions. Many anticipate, however, that they’ll blend EcoBoost technology with autonomous capabilities - reflecting the brand’s steady shift toward hybrid performance. Be sure to watch this blog as we unveil the latest details as they arrive.
Variety is the spice of (automotive) life. This is the philosophy that defines the Ford Focus, with the 2018 platform delivering a series of engine options. No longer will drivers be forced to compromise their performance needs. Instead they can select the powerpoints that offer speed, economy, and everyday capability - ensuring a bespoke experience with every mile.
According to Richmond.com, the 2018 Focus embraces a multi-faceted performance strategy - with several new engine options waiting beneath its hood. Drivers can now pair this platform with:
A 2.0L Inline-Four - 160 HP.
A 1.0L Turbocharged Inline-Three - 123 HP.
A 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-Four - 252 HP.
A 2.3L Turbocharged Inline-Four - 350 HP.
A 107-Kilowatt Electric Motor - 143 HP.
Each of these options delivers unprecedented value - emphasizing power, efficiency, or smooth handling. This allows drivers to piece together a chassis that reflects their specific needs. Pair each Focus engine with a FWD or an AWD to optimize responses; and take advantage of available Custom Modes (including Drift, Sport, and Track) to push the newly tuned suspension to the limits.
With the release of the 2018 Focus, Ford provides drivers with the tailored experiences they crave - enabling them to redefine every road with ease. To learn more about this sedan’s available engines contact us today!
December was the month of the crossover - with Ford leading the charge, delivering massive year-to-year growth with every day. Its venerable Explorer rang in the new year with staggering sales, proving that true performance knows neither age nor limitations.
According to the NWI Times, the 2018 Explorer (along with its 2017 predecessor) dominated December’s sales chart. Critics report that 25,375 total units were tallied last month - marking a 33% overall growth from November and a 10.1% increase from the previous year. This was a remarkable total, with no other brand managing to deliver such impressive gains. Winter is, traditionally, a season that sees consumer interest wane. Ford’s signature SUV, however, defied all expectations and yielded high amounts.
It also helped to bolster the brand’s overall success. The NWI Times notes that the Big Blue Oval’s entire crossover sector rose - jumping 10.3% from 2016. This ensured an eighth consecutive victory in North America, allowing Ford to dominate its main competitors (Toyota and Dodge).
Our team isn’t surprised. The 2018 Explorer was (and remains) a popular option on our lot - boasting up to 365 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque. This AWD powerhouse can accommodate up to 5,000 of conventional trailering pounds, making it perfect for every off-road adventure.
