It’s a collection of influences - the sleek drift lines of Japan, the sport-tuned European sensibilities, the pure American power. Ford draws inspiration from across the globe, piecing together a pony-platform like no other. The 2018 Mustang RTR has arrived.
According to Motor Authority, Ford is fusing every mile with circuit performance - with its new Mustang promising up to 700 HP! Bolstered by a 5.0L Coyote V8 engine, this pony races down the track, utilizing both a TVS supercharger and an advanced air-to-water intercooler to ensure full-throttle power. 20-inch wheels pummel the pavement, while a sport exhaust system maximizes intake capabilities.
This promises staggering responses, with the 2018 Mustang rumored to achieve a 0 to 60 acceleration of less than four seconds. This will allow Ford to directly compete with the Dodge Hellcat and the Toyota 86, connecting drivers to the line-lock fun they crave; and, though no official top-speed specs have been released, critics anticipate the platform to (at least) match its 2015 successor at 201 MPH.
Get ready to run, Seattle.
The 2018 Mustang RTR will soon be unleashed. To learn more about this platform contact our team today.
The acceleration is easy - with the slightest touch to a pedal yielding exceptional speeds. You race down the Pacific Coast, delighting in the way an engine roars. This pony was made to run and you let the reins go with a grin, certain that it will dominate every straightaway.
Ford knows, however, that cornering may prove far more difficult - which is why it’s anchoring the 2018 Mustang with a suite of stabilizing technologies. Fast speeds now combine with steady performance.
According to USA Today, the new Mustang offers more than blistering power. Instead Ford is ensuring superior handling, fusing the body with both a front splitter and a rear spoiler. These items achieve class-leading stability, generating more than 20 pounds of downforce (the pressure created by wind) at 80 MPH. Through this, they enhance performance, using the rush of air to keep the chassis centered on the road. This couples with AdvanceTrac technology and a stiff suspension to maintain perfect balance.
No longer will drivers fear those sharp corners. The 2018 Mustang will instead offer superior grippage, with its four wheels precisely locked into position with every mile. This will maximize the efforts of the 5.0L V8 engine and allow the pony to power through every obstacle.

The victory was certain - with Dodge revving its Challenger SRT Demon onto the track, mocking its competitors with a monstrous growl. It was a V8 powerhouse, destined to win a first place at the podium; and all other platforms would have to battle for a (distant) second. There was no other possible outcome.
Ford seems to embrace the impossible.
According to Motor Authority, the 2018 F-150 Raptor was recently pitted against Dodge’s SRT Demon. This race - deemed a farce by critics - was meant to test each platform’s quarter-mile capabilities. None expected a pick-up to perform well… but it did.
The 2018 Raptor blazed past the competition - including the Demon. Boasting a 3.5L V6 engine, this truck roared down the lane in a mere 12.49-seconds, leaving a trail of exhaust and surprise in its wake. How could this have happened?
The answer lies in Ford’s recent aftermarket tuning. The Big Blue Oval has transformed its F-150, fusing it with a new air intake system, a methanol injection tank, and a sport-tuned suspension. When these elements combine, they promise a PSI increase of 18 - fully maximizing the twin-turbo engine. This allows the Raptor to deliver powerful accelerations and ensures a record-breaking quarter-mile.

On October 31st the neon lights of Las Vegas will dim - overwhelmed by the burst of HID brilliance from Ford’s pony cars. Mustangs will race down the streets, cracking the pavement with their 18-inch hoofs; and they’ll rev into the SEMA Show, where thousands of guests will hurry to catch a glimpse of the chrome stampede.
Among the stallions Ford will wrangle into the Convention Center will be the 2018 Mustang Tucci - a custom platform that should thrill every Seattle speedster.
According to Automobile Magazine, the 2018 Tucci is boldly designed. A pro-mod wing anchors the rear, emphasizing the wide lines and LED taillights; while a carbon fiber roll bar frames the front, complemented by the sculpted sweep of a hood and the large tri-bar grille. Metallic gray coloring is punctuated by chrome-alloy accents and sleek black trims.
This brings dynamic style to the highway. Don’t worry, though, Seattle: the 2018 Mustang Tucci doesn’t sacrifice performance. Boasting a 5.0L V8 engine, this pony can blaze to a top-speed of 200 MPH. Its Mishimoto radiator delivers superior cooling capabilities, while a Borla exhaust system precisely controls intake ratios. This all combines with a rear diffuser that ensures peerless handling, reducing both drag and wind resistance.
Are you excited yet?
The 2018 Mustang Tucci will make its official debut at this year’s SEMA Show. To learn more about its impending Seattle arrival contact us today.

It will also offer entertainment.
According to Car and Driver, the 2018 F-150 Raptor provides effortless interfacing.

The cliches declare that everything is bigger in Texas. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 F-150 has earned acclaim from critics and drivers alike - delivering supersized performance and class-leading power. The half-ton market will never be the same.
According to the Globe Newswire, Ford’s ever-popular pick-up has just been named Truck of the Year by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA). This organization - which has established performance benchmarks for half-ton and full-ton platforms for more than 30 years - recently placed the F-150 under intense scrutiny, with its panel of journalists testing it for power, speed, and economy. The result was an unprecedented success.
As the Globe Newswire explains, the 2018 F-150 swept all TAWA categories - including torque ratios, off-road handling, conventional and gooseneck trailering, and more. Critics were quick to note that (unlike its competitors, the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Titan), this pick-up improved upon its predecessors. All performance specs had been enhanced, particularly handling. This was due to the inclusion of the new 10-speed automatic transmission, which ensured peerless responses on every road.
This led the 2018 F-150 to a clear victory - earning it the coveted Texas Truck of the Year title. We’re sure our Washington customers will share this same enthusiasm.

Across Nevada’s borderline comes a convoy - a chrome-clad collection of hatchbacks, rally-runners, and aftermarket sedans. They each promise exceptional power, proudly flashing their Big Blue Oval badges with every mile; and their rear spoilers gleam in the October sun.
From October 31st to November 3rd the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show will deliver the best in power and speed - introducing drivers to the latest generation of mechanical mastery. Among this year’s most anticipated vehicles is the 2018 Focus RS Street Performance, a Ford hot-hatch that should decimate records and the competition alike.
As CNET explains, this platform will leave SEMA audiences stunned. Boasting a 2.3L four-cylinder engine, the Street Performance should yield up to 350 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque. The carbon fiber body (which delivers sleek side panels and wing-style fenders) is light and lean, with up to 500 pounds removed from the chassis; while a BC Racing coilover suspension pairs with Baer brakes for superior traction. Though no transmission specs have been released, the use of a shift knob suggests a sport-tuned manual option - capable of accommodating both track curves and highway lanes.
The 2018 Focus RS Street Performance is boldly designed, with Ford delivering a show-stopping yellow fascia. Black inserts complement the aggressive profile, while a revised A-Pillar construction emphasizes the wide front glass. It’s no surprise critics are already expecting a SEMA victory.

It must be a mistake. You stare at a screen, baffled by how an SUV could somehow share the same description as a pick-up. Critics have named the 2018 Expedition as one of the year’s best trucks… and you begin to compose an email, wanting to alert them to their (quite egregious) error.
The Sound Ford team suggests that you pause your typing. There’s nothing incorrect about this category.
According to Ford Authority, the 2018 Expedition has been declared a finalist in the North American Car, Truck, and Utility of the Year (NACTOY) competition - going grille-to-grille with the Lincoln Navigator and the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. It doesn’t share the SUV spotlight. Instead it’s revved into a category usually dominated by the F-150, Tundra, and other big-wheeled pick-ups. Why? The answer lies in its construction.
Ford Authority explains that the 2018 Expedition boasts a body-on-frame design - more similar to the F-Series than traditional crossovers. This has led critics to deem it a truck rather than a utility platform, and it’s greatly expanded category possibilities for the NACTOY competition. Construction, rather than the MSRP label, will now define how vehicles are judged.
Despite its surprising entry into the truck field, the 2018 Expedition has easily earned recognition from critics and consumers alike - delivering a 3.5L EcoBoost engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and class-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential. This allows it to provide drivers with up to 9,300 pounds of conventional trailering and 375 HP.
The rivalry proves as old as the highway - with Ford and Chevrolet battling in Seattle, eking out victories with every mile. These automotive titans constantly collide; and they pit their greatest warriors, the Mustang and the Camaro, against each other at the front lines.
These battles have forever ended in a vicious stalemate… until now.
According to Motor Authority, Ford is seeking to decimate Chevrolet’s sales - fusing its 2018 Mustang GT with a bold new Performance Package. The pony-car (which already boasts best-in-class capabilities, yielding 460 HP to the Camaro’s 450) will prove unstoppable, offering:
19-inch Wheels - to improve grippage.
Brembo Brakes - to ensure track-worthy decelerations.
An Enlarged Radiator - to increase intake flow and reduce engine strain.
A Stiff Suspension - to provide crisp responses on straightaways and sharp corners alike.
When combined, these features will propel the 2018 Mustang GT past every contender - including the Camaro. Ford is launching an aggressive attack on the market, letting its beloved pony don sport-tuned armor. Motor Authority believes that this will ensure success for the new year… and we agree.

Is this the next-generation of utility? Keen-eyed photographers have snagged images of the 2019 Focus - blistering their fingers with the click of the shutter, straining their necks to capture perfect angles. Their pain may be undeniable… but so are their results. Prepare, Seattle, for a new kind of hatchback.
According to AutoBlog, Ford has unveiled its 2019 Focus. This platform - which was seen prowling the streets of Detroit - promises improved performance, trading its sedan profile for hatchback convenience. Gone is the crowded cabin, with the wheelbase extended by up to four inches and the roofline heightened. This enhances passenger comfort (sparing them narrow seat benches) and also offers class-leading storage, with the overall cargo capacity expected to increase by up to 15%.
This will allow the Focus to blitz by its competition - delivering greater value than the Honda Civic or the Mazda 3. No longer will it be bound to the compact market. Instead it will redefine itself as a true mid-size powerhouse, proving ideal for Seattle families.
No official production date has been given for the 2019 Focus. Critics anticipate, however, that it will make its official debut at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. This will offer drivers access to the ample cargo bay and new cabin design.
