The brand new 2019 Ford Focus is one of the first vehicles to receive a perfect five-star safety rating in Europe. The prestigious ranking comes from their $17.6 million crash sled facility in Cologne, Germany, where they’ve developed a new and rigorous testing protocol designed to enhance the security of everyone within the car. It was found that the intelligent technologies are intuitive and straightforward, creating a balance between supporting the user and giving them a feeling of full control over their experience.
Unfortunately, this model won’t be available here in the United States until next year — but don’t fret because you can still get the fantastic 2018 Ford Focus SE! This sedan has similar upper-tier features to ensure total protection. It's equipped with a Back-Up Camera which assists you when reversing by allowing you to see what you normally can’t. This beauty aced its side and front collision subtests (which we can attribute to the standardized steel door beams). Moreover, it hosts a multitude of airbags: curtain 1st and 2nd row, dual stage driver and passenger, and side-impact.
Does the Ford Focus SE sound like the right fit for you and your family? Call our dealership today and we’ll schedule you an appointment!

Many people say we’re living in the golden-age of technological progress, with a shiny future ahead of us. If this is true, then Ford is taking the lead on the voyage to the new world. This couldn’t be more evident than in the announcement that the company will be using 3D-printed brake parts in the Shelby GT500. That’s right: it truly is an exciting time to be alive!
The vehicle will be unveiled in January at the Detroit Auto Show. It comes out of the Advanced Manufacturing Center, where 23 machines are making three-dimensional car components. The goal is to once again revolutionize production — as the brand did one-hundred years ago when they created the moving assembly line.
In the meantime, why not check out the 2019 Ford Mustang GT? Under the hood rests a robust 5.0 liter V8 that cranks out a generous 460 horsepower at 7,000 revs per minute and 420 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. It’s equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission which allows you to seamlessly shift, while also giving you optimal performance and a stellar fuel economy (estimated by the EPA as 16 in the city and 25 on the highway for a combined 19 mpg).

Ford has always been a leader in innovation - so it comes as no surprise that they’re at the forefront of capitalizing on futuristic tools. At the brand’s Advanced Manufacturing Center in Redford, Mich., they’ve begun using new technologies, with the goal of eventually implementing the specialized equipment at all of their auto plants worldwide.
The company has invested $45 million in the project to bring valued customers first-class vehicles. Some of the exciting ventures being undertaken are the utilization of things like 3D printing to make advanced car parts, virtual reality to design and simulate production lines, robots to increase safety, and much more.
You can participate in this software revolution now with the 2019 Ford Fusion SE. It has the SYNC 3 infotainment console, which is an intuitive, high-resolution touchscreen monitor full of fabulous features. You can use the system hands-free with enhanced voice recognition to search for music or adjust the cabin's climate. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa for step-by-step navigation and to control your Smart Home devices. Additionally, you have the option to get FordPass, which allows you to track and remotely access your sedan to start, unlock, and check its fuel level status.
Embrace every adventure with full confidence - trusting the 2019 Escape Titanium to deliver robust performance on even the roughest backroads. This Ford crossover allows Federal Way drivers to push themselves to the limits.
According to CNET, the new Escape boasts a potent powerpoint. Beneath its hood roars a 2.0L twin-scroll engine - which generates 245 HP (at 5,550 RPMs) and 275 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPMs). A 10.1:1 compression ratio promises enhanced intake performance, while direct-acting mechanical bucket valves respond seamlessly to every turn of the ignition. The induction system offers turbocharged capabilities; injection technology anchors the fuel port; and a six-speed automatic transmission enhances the drivetrain, yielding SelectShift gear changes and seamless all-terrain adaptability.
The Escape Titanium further thrills with its available Intelligent 4WD. This system continuously scans the roadways, noting both lane trajectories and vehicle pitch. Should a loss of traction be detected, its intuitive sensors will immediately alert the torque transfer case - sending power throughout the platform at a rapid pace. Stability is achieved and off-road performance is enhanced.
The 2019 Titanium proves a perfect addition to every adventure. To learn more about this Ford crossover contact us today!
The year is slowly winding toward an end - and across Tacoma critics are already marking their calendars for 2019, circling the third quarter with gleeful intent. The 2020 Explorer is coming, and they can’t wait to experience its custom-tuned capabilities.
According to Motor One, Ford has just unveiled its 2020 Explorer. The platform - which should arrive to Tacoma by late next fall - will deliver robust performance, with a 3.0L V6 engine anticipated. This will allow it generate 400 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque, and towing ratios are expected to exceed 5,000 pounds. Anchoring the chassis will be an Intelligent AWD, which will smoothly transfer traction between the wheels to ensure stable responses; and a 10-speed automatic transmission will bring electronic precision to every mile. The inclusion of a supplemental turbocharger will further impress, enabling drivers to take full advantage of each rev.
To ensure drivers have the variety they crave, Ford also intends to pair this platform with an optional RWD. This will prove ideal for those craving stable highway experiences, with all power distributed to the rear tires and handling enhanced. This feature will allow for custom rides in Tacoma.

The crossover experience will never be the same - with Ford introducing Everett drivers to its 2018 Expedition Platinum. This platform delivers premium comfort, with its cabin fused with top-tier features. Expect more with every mile.
According to Herald Net, the 2018 Expedition is tailored for ease. Approach the massive eight-passenger body and discover power-deployable running boards. These ensure quick entry into the spacious cabin (210-inches long, 84-inches wide, and 74-inches high) and provide a stable step while maneuvering onto the leather seats. One-touch technology anchors the second and third rows, yielding custom configurations; and integrated heating functions defy even the coldest days. A panoramic sunroof affords striking views; a hands-free interface defines the SYNC infotainment console; and the B&O audio system boasts voice-activated functionality, allowing drivers to access their favorite digital content.
Further enhancing each adventure is the inclusion of trailer sway control technology. The Platinum proves perfect for families, offering up to 6,000 pounds of conventional towing. To ensure that these hauls don’t undermine the stability of the platform, however, Ford has fused it with automated braking functionality - with rear sensors monitoring the pitch of every payload. Should an imbalance be detected, the ABS will be engaged and speed will smoothly slow. This will maintain a refined ride in the cabin and keep the Expedition at an optimal alignment.
The 2018 Platinum offers a series of upgrades to Everett. To test these features contact our team today!
Efficiency proves elusive in the sport coupe market - with big engines demanding endless fuel, forcing drivers to constantly seek out station pumps. This is the way of things.
It’s time, Ford thinks, for a change.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2019 Mustang promises class-leading economy - earning 21 MPGs in the city and 31 MPGs on the highway. EcoBoost technology bolsters its standard 2.3L engine, promoting a precise distribution of fuel; while direct-injection capabilities optimize every rev. A twin independent cam timing system regulates valve movements, ensuring that air intake remains at peak levels; and an available 10-speed automatic transmission yields seamless handling, eliminating downshifting (a process that increases overall consumption by stumbling through gear ratios, thereby straining the powerpoint).
The new Mustang assures a combined MPG ratio of 25 - branding it the best on the road. Compare it to the 2019 Camaro. This competitor earns only 20 MPGs in the city and 30 MPGs on the highway, with its 2.0L inline-four engine unable to keep pace with Ford. Chevy drivers will spend their days at the pump, rather than enjoying the open road.
Prepare for an economical experience, Edmonds. To learn more about the 2019 Mustang contact our team today!

It’s a rivalry as old as time - the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro. The years have witnessed these beasts battle each other, unleashing endless torque-infused attacks. They’ve climbed to the top of the charts, eking out victories with every generation; and their quests for supremacy have been the things of automotive legend.
It’s time, however, for a bit of reality.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2019 Mustang proves the true winner in the sport coupe clash - with its standard 2.3L model delivering exceptional performance. Anchored by a turbocharger, the inline-four powerplant generates 310 HP (at 5,500 RPMs) and 350 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,500 RPMs). A six-speed manual transmission provides impeccable control, while direct-injection technology yields seamless ignition sequences. Twin cam-timing functionality improves valve movements; and available drive-modes allow for custom redline capability: with the press of a toggle switch changing traction distribution, speed, and pitch to adapt to new terrains.
Impressed? You should be - especially after comparing the 2019 Mustang to the latest Camaro. The standard version of this coupe features a 2.0L inline-four, which generates only 275 HP (at 5,600 RPMs) and 295 lb.-ft of torque (at 3,000 RPMs). The difference proves undeniable, and drivers will quickly feel the loss of pure pony power.
We suggest, therefore, slipping behind the wheel of the latest Mustang beast. To learn more about this ride contact our team today!
