Variety may be the spice of life - but it’s no longer the guiding force of the pony-market. Ford is streamlining its production process for the 2018 Mustang, offering drivers only two engine options. It’s shed all V6 variants, instead relying on V8 power and EcoBoost efficiency.
We don’t think our customers will mind.
According to Chrom, the 2018 Mustang promises exceptional performance - with its two available engines allowing drivers to tailor their miles to speed or economy:
By simplifying its powerpoint options, Ford allows drivers to take control of their highway experiences - with both the EcoBoost and the V8 emphasizing specific performance values. The 2.3L proves worthwhile at the pump, utilizing turbocharged technology and smooth MagneRide systems to optimize fuel intake; while the 5.0L delivers direct-injection speeds and new manifold designs to maximize the clutch. Both ponies are primed for the Seattle market and will impress with every mile.

Headlines seem forever devoted to the F-Series - with every quarter revealing expanding profits and extraordinary sales. These trucks dominate the charts, and they serve as the cornerstones of the Ford brand.
They’re not, however, the only foundation upon which the Big Blue Oval rests. Instead the 2017 Escape delivers an exceptional margin growth.
As the Lincoln County Journal explains, the 2017 Escape has helped to propel Ford to the top of the charts - serving as its top-selling SUV. In October alone, it secured a strong 23,064 total units. This allowed it to blitz past the competition (including the Honda HR-V and the Toyota RAV-4), and it’s also pushed the brand to record-breaking heights. Annual sales have risen a steady 2.2%, leading to billions of new profits.
We’re not surprised. The 2017 Escape proves a perfect option for Seattle drivers, connecting them to a robust 2.5L i-VCT engine. This yields 168 HP and 170 lb.-ft of torque, allowing the platform to accommodate every all-terrain adventure (achieve up to 1,500 pounds of conventional trailering). Available AWD pairs with AdvanceTrac control, while split-folding seats provide up to 64.8 cu.-ft of cargo space. Adaptability defines every mile.

The roads are long beyond Seattle - riddled with sudden turns and uneven spans of pavement. Every mile leaves you scowling behind the wheel, trying to navigate the uncertainty. It’s no easy task and too often do you find yourself lamenting your choice of car, knowing that it offers none of the necessary protections.
Ford will soon change that - bringing the 2018 Expedition XLT to the Washington market.
According to AutoBlog, the new Expedition proves more than an eight-passenger behemoth. Instead Ford has fused this platform with premium safety technologies, helping drivers combat every mile. AdvanceTrac stability control maximizes the AWD, ensuring that torque is precisely distributed between the wheels. Halogen headlamps provide wide-angled illuminations, improving cornering capabilities; while a tire pressure monitor automatically warns of dangerously low levels. Anti-lock disc brakes ensure immediate stoppage, and speed-sensitive steering promises smoother responses.
All of this combines with a comprehensive airbag suite - which includes both side-curtain and side-impact inflatables. This provides drivers with full cabin protection in the wake of an accident.

Crowds gather in Seattle - winding their way toward the CenturyLink Field Center, memorizing maps and planning stage strategies. The International Auto Show will soon begin and each guest is preparing for a chrome-coated whirlwind.
Ford is doing the same.
From November 9th to November 12th the Seattle International Auto Show will play host to the world’s latest powerhouses - including the 2018 F-150. Ford is making its Pacific Northwest debut, allowing drivers to sample pure V6 power. This half-ton platform has been tailored for the region’s ever-changing inclines, boasting:
All-Terrain Technologies - with Intelligent AWD and Hill Descent Control systems working in tandem to maximize stability.
Custom Drive Modes - with the electronic 10-speed transmission seamlessly shifting between Tow/Haul, Sport, EcoSelect, and Snow/Wet gear levels to ensure superior handling.
Improved Steerage - with Shift-On-The-Fly capabilities providing smooth cornering, bolstered by a rack-and-pinion design and front coil springs.
The 2018 F-150 proves a masterful option for Seattle drivers, enabling them to conquer every road - and we know it will be a popular showcase at the CenturyLink Field Center.

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.
