2019 ford ranger for sale kirkland washingtonIn case you missed it (ICYMI), Ford’s making a lot of changes in 2020. Around this time last year, Ford announced a whole host of changes to its lineup at an automotive press event in Dearborn, MI. Topics discussed included the future of mobility, challenges facing automakers, and new products.

Here are some of the highlights:


  • Hybrid powertrains for both the Explorer and the Escape
  • The return of the Ford Bronco with a square silhouette, pronounced wheel arches, and a rear-hatch mounted spare. Take that, Jeep Wrangler!
  • A new, still nameless off-roading utility model that looks like a 4x4 and might use the Escape’s platform.
  • A growing SUV lineup, with at least one new Lincoln luxury model
  • Simplification with fewer platforms—five in total: front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, commercial vans, a scaled chassis platform for trucks, and a specific electric vehicle platform. What this means: more models, less mechanical redesign.
  • Beat Toyota at its hybrid and all-electric game by 2021 with hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric versions of the Ford Mustang and the Ford F-150.
  • Standardization of the Ford Co-Pilot360. Introduced in fall 2018 for the Ford Edge and at the beginning of 2019 for the Ford Ranger, the Ford Co-Pilot360’s five safety features, including automatic braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot detection, lane keep assist, backup camera and automatic headlights, will be standard on all Ford vehicles by 2020.

If this all sounds too good to be true, it isn’t! Hurry in to test drive one of these great vehicle, like the 2019 Ranger XL. Sound Ford is located near Kent, Washington!
