2018 Ford F-150 Super Crew XLT | Tropical Ford Blog | Orlando, FL

When you think about the fastest trucks on the road, you might imagine the truly impressive Raptor. However, even that truck is not as fast as the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

Car and Driver recently put this luxurious truck to the test and got some astounding results. With its 450-horsepower engine, it achieves a 0-60 mph time of just 5.1 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest trucks ever produced. It also takes on the quarter mile run in just 13.7 seconds.

Along with its incredible speed, the F-150 Limited has impressive stopping power, too. With its 22-inch Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico all-season tires, it can come to a full stop in just 168 feet.

Inside, the F-150 Limited is just as impressive. It comes standard with upgraded leather upholstery, wood and aluminum trim details, a navigation system, heated and ventilated front seats, 8-inch touch screen with Ford SYNC® 3, FordPass Wi-Fi® capabilities, Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, a sunroof, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Besides speed and technology, the Ford F-150 Limited also comes well-equipped with advanced safety features to boost your confidence on the road. Just some of these available tools inclue BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®).

Make Parking Easier with the Ford EcoSport

2018 Ford EcoSport | Tropical Ford Blog | Orlando, FL

With the ever-growing size of many American cars, parking can sometimes be a nightmare, especially if you are in the city. According to INRIX, a transportation analytics organization, drivers spend an average of 17 hours a year looking for parking. This number maxes out at 107 hours a year for drivers in New York City.

If you live in a crowded urban area, you might want to consider investing in a compact Ford EcoSport. Per Ford, the EcoSport is the most compact SUV in North America.* So while many parking spots are too small for some SUVs, they’re just the right size for the EcoSport. Ford calls these spots “EcoSpots.” The EcoSport measures only 161.3 inches in length, while still offering lots of interior space for passengers and cargo.

In fact, the EcoSport is 8.5 inches shorter than a Mini Countryman, but still has more cargo area. It is also more than 7 inches shorter than the Buick Encore while still having more cargo space. The EcoSport also boasts versatile cargo space thanks to flip-and-fold second-row seats and an adjustable cargo floor.

In addition to its compact size, the EcoSport comes well-equipped for a practical and connected driving experience. Standard features include Bluetooth® connectivity, two USB ports, a rearview camera, and a cargo cover.

Stop by Tropical Ford to test-drive the delightful EcoSport for yourself.
