The commute proves tedious - an endless stretch of traffic and dull scenery, looped together through a series of interstate demands. Every day is the same and every mile is a chore. With the release of the 2017 Fusion Sport, however, Ford can offer Seattle drivers some (much-deserved) relief.
Shed every sedan expectation. This mid-size platform delivers exceptional performance, with AutoWeek highlighting its newly revised drivetrain. Ford has rebuilt the Fusion, pairing it with a higher suspension spring rate and anti-roll bars. This promotes a balanced ride on Washington’s sharp curves. The wide 19-inch wheels provide superior traction; a stiff undercarriage ensures precision; and the inclusion of continuously controlled dampers allows for improved torque distribution.
Through this, the 2017 Fusion Sport can achieve 325 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque - with its 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine purring along the Seattle streets. This is a peerless sedan, blending economical styling with bold performance.
No longer settle for dull. Pair your daily commute instead with a punch of Ford power!

Old-school performance will soon pair with new-school style. The 2018 Mustang is revving toward Seattle - and with it comes a promise of fastback design.
The Bucks County Courier Times reports that Ford has redefined its signature pony-car. Though this platform still boasts its beloved 2.3L EcoBoost engine and magnetic damping system, its fascia has been transformed - with the brand emphasizing an aggressive aesthetic. The sloped hood delivers bullet-like precision; LED headlamps pair with projector high-beams; and the enlarged intake vents ensure a rally effect. Available features (including a quad-tip exhaust and a performance spoiler) energize the Mustang’s profile.
Craving a bold look on the highway? Ford now allows Seattle drivers to customize their cars, delivering new paint colors (including Orange Fury, Royal Crimson, and Kona Blue) and racing stripes. Tailor the exterior to pony perfection.
With the impending release of the 2018 Mustang (it should arrive to dealerships by the late fall), Ford is revitalizing the fastback market - offering a platform that yields quick speeds, smooth handling, and undeniable design.

Along the Pacific Coast mountains stand - shadowed bits of stone and sand, looming always in the distance. They beg to be conquered... and the 2018 Fiesta Evo is willing to try.
According to The Drive, Ford has unveiled its latest hot hatch - a compact option that proves the most unlikely of hill-climbers. The Evo is engineered for inclines, with its 1.3L three-cylinder motor growling out 650 HP and 590 lb.-ft of torque. While its lean body (it weighs a mere 2,100 pounds) and aggressive styling seems more suited to the track, this Fiesta variant recently stunned critics by earning a top position at the Engine Car Swap. This event challenges drivers to overcome Europe's highest peaks.
The 2018 Fiesta Evo passed that challenge with flying (chrome) colors.
The success of Ford’s petite powerhouse abroad has led many to wonder whether it will make its way across the pond - and we’re excited to report that it will! The Drive confirms that the Evo will soon participate in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado, which will prove its value stateside. This should inspire considerable consumer interest and expedite production.
Are you as excited as we are?

It’s a rumbling sound - with the 2017 Focus RS revving down the Washington highway, leaving a trail of chrome-colored smoke in its wake. This is no mere hatchback. This is instead the future of performance, with Ford emphasizing power with every mile.
According to New Atlas, the 2017 Focus RS is a beastly platform. Bolstered by a turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, this hot hatch revs to 350 HP. It pairs twin-scroll performance with a high-tensile cast iron design, optimizing every revolution; and its FWD system ensures precise handling, intuitively distributing the 450 lb.-ft of torque as needed to eliminate under-steerage. This pairs with custom drive modes (including Drift and Sport) to allow for seamless track-to-pavement transitions.
With the release of its new RS, Ford is offering drivers the chance to experience pure exhilaration - introducing them to electric line-lock capabilities and launch control tech. Roar down the lane with the press of a button, pushing the sport-tuned suspension to the limits. This platform is a speedster’s delight.

It’s a long stretch of road - cobbled together with weeds and fallen branches, the gravel turned to dust. Dragging a trailer across it will prove no simple task, especially with your pick-up already gasping for power. It can’t conquer the incline; it can’t rev through the muck; and it gives a threatening whine as you press the pedal, shuddering beneath the weight of a load.
Seattle drivers, endure this no more. Choose a 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty instead!
With the release of the 2017 F-450 Super Duty, Ford delivers exceptional power. According to Car and Driver, this pick-up features a turbocharged 32-valve V8 diesel engine - blending pushrod inter-cooling and direct-fuel injection to maximize performance. Rev up to 440 HP and 925 lb.-ft of torque, taking advantage of the six-speed automatic transmission for seamless shifting. The 176-inch wheelbase is ruggedly designed, boasting a maximum tow rating of 21,000 pounds; and the 15-inch brake rotors allow for superior stoppage.
With this, the new F-450 can effortlessly haul every load - transitioning from the Seattle streets to the Washington backroads. 19.5-inch tires pummel the pavement, while the active steering system provides quick handling along those sudden turns. This is the ultimate pick-up option.

The history of automotives is woven with partnerships - intertwining threads that create a high-performance tapestry. The decades have yielded alliances both expected and strange. Some (like the implosive joining of Citren and Maserati) fizzled to nothing more the footnotes; while others (like the long-lasting union of Honda and McLaren) have forged years of success.
None have made as strong of an impression, however, as the one between Ford and ROUSH. These brands have come together often, building supercharged pony-cars, pick-ups, and more. It’s only fitting, therefore, that they celebrate their partnership with a special gift.
In honor of Ford’s friendship with ROUSH, it’s gifting the company with one of the first 2017 GTs in the world! This platform - of which only 1,000 will be produced - is the ultimate performer, boasting a 5.0L Coyote V8 engine that yields 435 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Anchored by twin-turbo capabilities, it can achieve a top-speed of 216 MPH; and its active-adjustable suspension ensures peerless cornering on every track.
This (when combined with the hydraulic steering rack) makes the 2017 Mustang GT a perfect present for ROUSH - and a much-craved option for Seattle drivers. No official release date has been given for this platform, but we hope to secure it for our lot when it rolls off the assembly line.
From a single picture comes a thousand words - and a thousand thundering ponies. Ford will soon introduce Seattle drivers to its 2018 Mustang GT, letting this steed race from the corral to the highway.
Motor Authority recently revealed a glimpse of the new Mustang GT’s interior - with one of their quick-fingered reporters able to snap a photo of the gauge cluster. While drivers might furrow their brows at this choice (craving a look at the engine instead), they’ll soon see the value of a tachometer sneak-peek... because the RPM ratio promises record-breaking results. Prepare for a 7,500 redline!
We’ll spare you a moment to collect your thoughts - and your jaw from the floor.
The 2018 Mustang GT boasts a 7,500 redline, with its 5.0L V8 engine propelling it to new heights (its successor only achieved 7,000). While no HP specs have been released, critics are anticipating a power increase of, at least, 10%; and the addition of a 6-speed manual transmission and a dual-mass flywheel will further maximize performance. This will prove to be the ultimate pony-car.
No official production date has been given for the 2018 GT - but Ford has confirmed that it will arrive by the late fall. Be patient, Seattle drivers. Only a few months separate you from the V8 beast you crave.

A new era of performance will soon begin in Seattle - with Ford redefining off-road capabilities and enhancing power with every mile. The 2018 F-150 is coming... and it’s bringing sport-tuned engines with it.
According to The Drive, Ford will soon conquer both the roads and the sales charts - with its 2018 F-150 promising a suite of new engines. While still anchored by a 3.5L V6, it will allow consumers to select powertrains that reflect their specific trailering demands, ensuring improved performance with every load. Choose: a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 (325 HP, 400 lb.-ft of torque); a 5.0L V8 (395 HP, 400 lb.-ft of torque); a 3.3L Naturally Aspirated V6 (290 HP, 265 lb.-ft of torque); or a 3.0L Diesel V6 (estimated 240 HP, estimated 420 lb.-ft of torque). Each of these options will be fused with a 10-speed automatic transmission and direct-injection capability.
This, The Drive explains, will enable F-Series fans to accommodate even the heaviest of hauls - with the 2018 F-150 believed to offer more than 12,000 pounds of trailering. There will be no challenge it can’t conquer.
The 2018 F-150 should arrive in Seattle by the early fall. To learn more about this platform - including specs or pricing - contact Sound Ford Renton today.
The payload proves heavy - a collection of timber and tools, all stacked neatly in a cargo bed. You’ve embraced the DIY philosophy, craving the feel of a hammer in your hand and the smell of paint in the air. A home transformation will soon occur... if your truck can handle the haul. You stare dubiously at the sagging rear and feel a surge of doubt. This will be a long, long ride.
Ford seeks to shorten it - connecting Seattle drivers to the 2017 F-250 Super Duty. With this pick-up, all projects can be achieved. There’s no load too heavy and no trailering demand too great.
According to Forbes, the new F-250 proves a powerhouse on the road. Anchored by a 6.7L diesel V8, this platform delivers 440 HP and 925 lb.-ft of torque. A ten-speed automatic transmission promises effortless all-terrain control, while the elongated body (21-feet) pairs aluminum paneling with high-strength steel framing. These elements combine to create an unstoppable pick-up, yielding 15,000 pounds of conventional towing and 4,400 pounds of payloads!
Through this, the 2017 Super Duty can easily adapt to every need - with its crew cab configuration offering maximum value with every mile. Build on, Seattle renovators and restorators. Build on!
In 2011 North American drivers wept - lamenting the passing of both the Ford Ranger and the compact pick-up market. This iconic platform (which debuted in 1982) had become the standard of mid-duty power, performance, and reliability. There was no worthy alternative; there was no all-wheel replacement.
This will, fortunately, soon change.
According to Motor Authority, Ford has recently been pitting its 2019 Ranger against the elements - sending the truck Down Under for some final powertrain tweaks. Spy photos (taken by eager cameramen) reveal a T6 frame, with a wide grille and short bed. Though heavily camouflaged, the headlamps should offer LED precision; while aluminum paneling is rumored to ensure a more efficient ride. Power-folding side-view mirrors, lean wheel-wells, and enlarged intake vents create a sporty effect.
What drivers truly crave, however, are specs about the Ranger’s all-terrain capabilities. While Motor Authority notes that no official details have been released, it does contend that a 3.2L inline-five engine is the most likely option for 2019 - ensuring 197 HP and 346 lb.-ft of torque. This should please Seattle pick-up fans, allowing them to easily adapt to every road and every mid-duty load.
