Defend against every highway uncertainty with help from the 2019 Fusion S. This Ford sedan has been bolstered with a series of top-tier safety technologies - ensuring that drivers can confidently (and securely) navigate stop-and-go traffic. No longer fear the miles. Instead trust this platform to deliver comprehensive protection and support.
As CNET explains, the new Fusion S yields impressive capability. Automatic high-beams engage in low-light environments, utilizing halogen bulbs to illuminate corners and dark straightaways alike; while rain-sensing wipers use intuitive software to identify changing weather conditions, seamlessly adjusting their blade patterns to accommodate increasing moisture. Blind-spot monitoring technology anchors the side-view mirrors, offering wide-angle perspectives to gauge both distance and traffic patterns; while a pedestrian detection system alerts drivers to the presence of passerbyers, streaming real-time high-definition feeds to the SYNC display screen.
To further enhance safety the 2019 Fusion S also comes standard with collision-mitigation braking. This function detects approaching obstacles via front-mounted sensors. If drivers take no actions to avoid these concerns, then gentle pressure will be applied to the all-wheel ABS - decelerating speeds and lessening the chance of an impact.
The new Fusion provides motorists with the automated responses they deserve. To learn more about this sedan contact our team today!
It’s the end of an era. Soon Ford will discontinue its Fiesta fleet - with these sub-compacts heading to Europe, forced off of North American production lines. The final generation is poised to make its debut this fall, and critics are already protesting the loss of four-cylinder power.
They’re not, however, protesting the addition of the ST-Line.
As Car and Driver explains, the 2019 Fiesta will add a new model to its fleet - the ST-Line. This hot-hatch will serve as a spirited addition to every commute, with its 1.6L engine delivering 197 HP and 201 lb.-ft of torque. Most impressive, however, will be the suite of style upgrades this platform offers, with Ford fusing both the fascia and cabin with dynamic design.
The ST-Line stands on 16-inch alloy wheels. A rear spoiler delivers a sporty effect, while a cascading chrome grille defines the front. Wide fender flares are accentuated by custom badges; and dual exhaust tips rest beneath the LED signature tail-lights, perfectly complementing the five-door profile.
Inside this Fiesta discover embroidered cloth seating. A leather-wrapped steering wheel adds a sleek touch, while contrast stitching anchors the floor mats and headliners. Metallic trim creates a bold contrast on the instrument panels, highlighting their retro-inspired gauges.
The 2019 ST-Line will bring striking design to Sumner - and it will be a fitting conclusion to the Fiesta fleet.
The dimensions prove massive - with the 2018 Expedition Platinum reaching 210-inches in length, 84-inches in width, and 77-inches in height. This eight-passenger behemoth claims every lane as its own, and Puyallup drivers swallow nervously when they think of trying to control it. There’s no way, they believe, to tame such a big beast.
The new Expedition - as Automoblog explains - proves spry on the highway, despite its cavernous design. This is because Ford has fused it with a potent engine suite, meant to enhance performance on even the wildest Washington roads. Take a peek beneath the hood and find a 3.5L EcoBoost. This V6 yields impressive capability, generating 400 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission delivers SelectShift functionality, crisply navigating each gear ratio; while twin independent variable camshaft timing expedites combustion, increasing both intake levels and fuel distribution. A 10.0:1 compression ratio assures smooth sequencing; and dual air-to-air turbochargers send bursts of power to the block on command, allowing the platform to quickly reach the redline.
This provides Washington drivers with the performance they need - enabling the Expedition to maneuver across every road with ease. Don't be intimidated by this beast. It can be tamed with the press of a pedal.

Ease has come to the crossover market - with Ford fusing its 2018 Expedition Limited with a series of driver-focused technologies. Value now defines the fascia, ensuring effortless control with every mile.
As In Forum explains, the new Expedition Limited delivers convenience. Halogen beam projector-style headlamps pair with LED tail-lights to ensure peerless illumination, allowing drivers to easily maneuver around tight curves; while intermittent front and rear wipers respond to changing weather conditions, maximizing visibility through their automated engagements. An integrated de-icer strips away unwanted condensation from the windshield, and a window washer counters all seasonal muck.
To further enhance the driver experience, the Limited also boasts a hands-free rear lift-gate. This function eliminates the need for clumsy keys, instead utilizing integrated sensors to interpret entry/exit patterns. Operators need only to wave a foot beneath the bumper to smoothly open the door, granting immediate access to the cavernous bay (which spans 104.6 cu.-ft). Pair this with stainless steel roof rails and a Class IV trailer hitch for peerless cargo capabilities.
The 2018 Expedition is primed to impress - allowing riders to seize control of every highway. To learn more about this crossover (or to schedule a test-drive in one of our current models) contact our team today!
With the release of the 2018 Mustang Ford delivered more than performance to Washington - instead emphasizing tech prowess with every mile. This pony fleet was fused with the SYNC 3 console, ensuring wireless streaming and smartphone connectivity; and it bolstered interfacing through its dynamic voice-activated controls, utilizing a capacitive touchscreen to access endless information via the AppLink suite. Entertainment was assured.
It’s also now been rewarded.
According to USA Today, the 2018 Mustang ranks among the best tech options for drivers - earning recognition for its intuitive system and glitch-free controls. The SYNC 3 console was able to secure victory over luxury brands (including Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche), delivering top-marks across the JD Power board.
We’re not surprised. The Mustang’s revised infotainment center promises effortless interfacing. Google Search functionality allows for easy information, accepting both hands-free and push-button queries; while Waze software intuitively generates the most efficient routes, displaying them in high-definition 3D grids. Amazon Alexa promotes automated control, with operators able to customize more than 30,000 skill-sets (such as activating their garage doors or engaging the engine with a simple command); and available Apple CarPlay technology optimizes streaming, letting every feed to sync with the eight-inch touchscreen.
Through this each mile proves far simpler - branding the 2018 Mustang a true digital platform.
No cinephile are you. Films prove disposable - watched, forgotten, and ignored. You devote your time instead to other pursuits, preferring to experience life beyond a screen.
Slipping behind the wheel of the 2019 Mustang Bullitt, therefore, doesn’t thrill you. After all, what kind of value could a movie-inspired pony bring?
Allow us to show you.
As The Drive explains, the new Mustang Bullitt delivers exceptional performance - with its 5.0L Ti-VCT engine generating a staggering 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. No love for the namesake film is needed to appreciate the roar of a V8. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, this ride sails down the lane. A 3.73 Torsen limited-slip differential anchors the rear, intuitively correcting suspension tension to ensure balanced handling; while the chassis boasts both EPAS and ABS tuning to maximize control. Monotube shocks promise deft maneuvering, and rear cross-axis joints pair with optional magnetic dampers to provide nimble articulation.
The result is a pony that can stampede from 0 to 60 in approximately four seconds - rendering every driver (whether a film-fan or not) impressed.
Are you ready for an adrenaline-packed ride, Tacoma?

Mere months have passed since the 2018 EcoSport arrived in Seattle - bringing European-inspired styling and pure American utility to the highway. This crossover has been met with much acclaim, with both critics and consumers praising its impactful design.
Ford, however, is never content to rest - and a new EcoSport is already making its way to the proving grounds.
According to AutoBlog, a prototype for the 2020 EcoSport has just been spotted. This platform - which features an elongated body, affording a more convenient five-door profile - recently made its debut in Michigan, and critics were quick to capture a few revealing images. Wide fender flares anchor the chassis, delivering a sporty look; while four-lugged hubs pair with all-season tires. The suspension has been lifted (no official specs have yet been provided, but early estimates place the upgrade at more than an inch to ensure easier backroad travel); and the roofline yields a Fiesta-inspired curve.
This hatchback will impress on the Seattle streets - with AutoBlog noting teardrop headlamps and a widened grille. These elements provide an athletic fascia, branding the EcoSport perfect for commuters and sportsmen alike.

It’s an expectation of efficiency. Drivers hear the EcoBoost name and wrinkle their noses, certain that this engine suite will yield none of the performance they crave. It is, they think, meant solely for slow sedans. There’s no place for it beneath the hood of the 2019 Mustang.
Allow Ford to remedy this misconception.
As Boston.com explains, the 2019 Mustang boasts EcoBoost capability, courtesy of a 2.3L engine. While this technology does indeed promise efficiency - elevating ratios to 21 MPGs in the city and 35 MPGs on the highway - it demands no sacrifice of speed. Instead it pairs Ti-VCT functionality (which enhances intake sequences) with direct-injection software (which maximizes resources, responding to redline spikes to ensure optimal fuel distribution). A six-gear manual transmission ably assists every rev; and custom drive-modes allow operators to define their performance needs, controlling the power-band output with the press of a button.
Through this, the 2019 Mustang promises 310 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque - roaring from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.1 seconds.
Don’t be fooled by the EcoBoost moniker. Instead let us show you just how powerful this pony can be.

Popularity is fickle in the automotive world. Each day sees the rise - and fall - of cars, with consumer interest proving impossible to predict. Preferences changes; trends shift; and sustainability is forgotten…. almost.
Ford has managed to defy this fair-weather pattern - with its Expedition earning long-term loyalty from Washington.
According to The Car Connection, the Expedition ranks among the most popular cars in North America - with drivers keeping it for an average of nine years. Why is this number so impressive? Critics note that most vehicles boast a life-span of only seven years. This delivers a staggering 21% difference and it showcases the reputation that Ford has crafted, with its SUV revving past the competition (including the Toyota 4Runner, the Honda Odyssey, and Chevrolet Suburban).
We’re not surprised. The Expedition has always proven a top-seller on our lot - and the 2018 version is no exception. Boasting an eight-passenger frame, this SUV effortlessly accommodates families and adventurers alike. Its cavernous cabin hosts 104.6 cu.-ft of cargo space, allowing it to adapt to every need; while flat-folding seating yields custom configurations. A series of overhead and under-mounted consoles pair with cushion-back pockets to provide ample support; and roof-rack rails assure easy hauling, delivering more than 1,700 payload pounds. The entire platform is tailored for day-to-day storage… and that makes it a worthy addition to any mile.

Value proves timeless. This is the truth embraced by the 2013 Explorer. Despite boasting more than a few years beneath its hood, this SUV remains a viable all-terrain option - with noted industry leader, Kelley Blue Book, recently celebrating it.
According to KBB, the 2013 Explorer is a worthy addition to any used vehicle search. Effortlessly surpassing the competition (including the Nissan Pathfinder), this platform connects drivers to both dynamic handling and superior power. Anchored by a standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6, it generates 290 HP (at 6,500 RPMs) and 255 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPMs). A six-speed automatic transmission provides nimble responses, utilizing SelectShift technology to identify the optimum gear ratios for changing roadways; while power-assisted steering promises seamless electric control. An independent suspension allows this seven-passenger ride to smoothly maneuver over any terrain; and the inclusion of an optional AWD further impresses, offering maximum traction with every mile.
This, KBB argues, brands the 2013 Explorer an ideal option for families and adventurers alike. Its rugged architecture can accommodate all roadways - revving through summer sun and winter snow on 17-inch steel wheels. No other used SUV delivers such strong performance.
