One of the most iconic appearance packagesof the 1990s is back. The 2022 Ford Ranger Splash™ Package puts your personality on full display with a vibrant orange color and unique black body-side graphics that truly pop whether you’re cruising down the highway or parked on the curb.
“Ranger customers love to personalize their trucks — more than 80% customize their Ranger with an appearance package — and with Splash, we’re giving them something exclusive,” said Chad Callandar, Ford Ranger marketing manager. “Every few months, we’re going to roll out another exterior color for Ranger that will be offered one time only and in very limited quantities.”
Splash will come in two different styles: Splash Package and Splash™ Limited Edition. The former will be available for the entirety of the 2022 model year and feature body-side orange and black graphics, special 12-spoke wheels finished in matte black, exclusive seats with orange contrast stitching, and unique carbon grain with tuxedo stripes.
Meanwhile, Splash Limited Edition trucks will be revealed only every few months, and just a few hundred models will be made available. The first of these will be a Ranger Splash – Snow Edition model, which has yet to be unveiled. Make sure tocall Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida, to be one of the lucky few owners of this truck when it launches.
The 2022 Ford Expedition has launched with a new Timberline series that sets a new bar for off-road capability. It competes directly with the Jeep® Wagoneer and, as you’ll find out, wins that matchup pretty handily.
Ready For Conquest
The new Ford Expedition Timberline comes straight out of the factory with the best available ground clearance in its class. With 10.6 inches of ground clearance, it beats the Wagoneer by 0.6 inches. It also has a better power-to-weight ratio than its rival, in part thanks to a high-output EcoBoost® engine producing 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, and in part because it weighs 4% less than the Jeep SUV.
Deep departure and approach angles, combined with the same Trail Turn Assist feature already offered on the Ford Bronco™ SUV, make the Expedition Timberline a force to be reckoned with when the asphalt runs out. It also has 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler™ all-terrain tires, a two-speed transfer case, and underbody shielding.
The new Ford Expedition has more to offer than just the rugged Timberline model, though. It also has a new Stealth Edition Performance Package and debuts the Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway Driver-Assist Technology. It’s available with a 15.5-inch smartphone-like touch screen and a 22-speaker sound system by Bang & Olufsen.
Truly, the 2022 Ford Expedition means business. Learn more about its features and the Timberline model at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida!

There are big changes in store for the 2022 Ford Explorer, arriving soon at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida. Namely, the sportiest model in the lineup — the Explorer ST — will now come standard with rear-wheel drive.
Performance enthusiasts have been clamoring for a Ford Explorer ST with RWD since its debut. Now, Ford is delivering.
“No two SUV drivers use their vehicles the same way, so our goal is to meet the needs of as many as possible,” said Lee Newcombe, Ford Explorer marketing manager. “Four-wheel-drive capability is great if you need it, but if you don’t, you shouldn’t have to pay for it.”
And if you want the sporty look and feel of the Explorer ST but don’t need the 400 horsepower its 3.0-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo makes, you can now opt for the 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line. The Explorer ST-Line keeps the aesthetic of the ST but swaps in a still-robust 300-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®.
Other major changes to the 2022 Ford Explorer lineup include the 3.0-liter EcoBoost® becoming the standard engine for the King Ranch and Platinum trims. You can also opt for a second-row bench or captain’s chairs at no added cost, and the Timberline is now available with a second-row bench.
The 2022 Ford Explorer is a great choice if you love to get down and dirty around Orlando. If you’d like to take one for a spin, contact the team at Tropical Ford.
The Ford Bronco Riptide demonstrates how customizable the all-new Bronco SUV is. Based on a Bronco four-door with the ultra-rugged Sasquatch™ Package, the Riptide adds on must-have accessories like a Bestop® mesh Bimini top, Yakima® bike rack, and RIGID® LED lightbar. The Bronco is one of the most customizable vehicles on the road today with over 200 factory-backed accessories.
Ford makes sure the Bronco Riptide looks ready for a beach day with tubular doors, a bright Velocity Blue exterior, and a durable and stylish marine-grade vinyl-trimmed interior.
“Thanks to the Bronco modular design, we were able to outfit the vehicle with adventure gear that allows for freedom and versatility,” said Bronco Color and Materials Designer Missy Coolsaet. “Whether heading off to the mountains or along the California coast, the Bronco Riptide custom vehicle is ready for adventure.”
The Ford Bronco Riptide is well-suited for Florida adventuring, too. Available through Tropical Ford, the all-new Bronco two-door and four-door are a loving homage to the past that brings the Blue Oval’s reputation for off-road excitement into the 21st century. Wanna see what all the buzz is about with the all-new Ford Bronco? Contact your friends at Tropical Ford and we’ll put you on the path to sunny days.
Ford will be adding the all-new Ford ReFresh95 cabin air filter to its lineup. Almost every Ford model will come standard with this advanced filter by the end of 2023. Take a look at how this new component can improve the air quality in your car.
Reduced allergens and particles
The Ford ReFresh95 cabin air filter can prevent as much as 99 percent of certain allergens, like dust particles and common pollens, from reaching the interior. It can also keep out some airborne concentrations of particles the size of bacteria.
Filtered out particulates
In an area with lots of rush-hour traffic — like Orlando, Florida — it can filter out the particulate matter in soot and smog. The Ford ReFresh95 can even stop air particles that are 30 times smaller than one human hair. These include a minimum of 95 percent of 2.5-micron size traffic exhaust, metals, organic material, and road dust particles.
The Ford ReFresh95 went through plenty of testing at a third-party lab, so you can trust its effectiveness. For instance, the filter excelled in pressure drop testing, showing it can last during your recommended service interval. Select models will offer the filter later this year.

Car and Driver was impressed by the Mustang Mach-E’s performance. The 2021 model has an EPA-estimated range of 305 miles, so you won’t have to search for a charging station often.* Once it’s time to charge, you can do so while relaxing at home or through the FordPass™ Charging Network.
The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition can go 0-60 mph in only 3.5 seconds, and its powertrain delivers 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque.** This model proves that EVs can be just as thrilling as their gas-powered counterparts.
A comfortable cabin
The interior of the Mustang Mach-E is also plenty spacious, noted Car and Driver. The driver’s seat sits up high, providing plenty of visibility, and you’ll have lots of legroom too since the battery is under the floor. There are even 4.7 cubic feet of storage space in the front trunk that’s ideal for muddy or wet gear.
Learn more about the features that make the Mustang Mach-EV the top EV when you call Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida.

What makes the Lightning® Pro different from all other F-150 models produced by Ford thus far is that it’s an electric work pickup truck designed for commercial use. The Ford Lightning® Pro is the latest addition to the automaker’s lineup of capable, efficient all-electric work-ready models, alongside vehicles like the E-Transit.
If you own a business in Orlando, Florida, you should consider buying this pickup truck for your fleet. While using an eco-friendly electric vehicle as a work truck may seem unorthodox, the F-150 Lightning® Pro proves that it can do what gas-powered trucks can do — sometimes even better.
This 2022 truck coming to Tropical Ford boasts a power output of 426 horsepower — or 563 horsepower on the extended-range version. The EPA-estimated travel range on a single charge is 230 miles on the standard 4×4 F-150 Lightning® Pro or 300 miles on the extended-range version.
The F-150 Lightning® Pro runs only on electricity, leaving room under the hood for extra storage space. This truck features the first-ever Ford Mega Power Frunk, which boasts 14.1 cubic feet of lockable storage space.
There’s plenty more that the 2022 F-150 Lightning® Pro offers for your business in Orlando, but you’ll have to come to Tropical Ford to learn about them in person. Come to our dealership to discuss how Ford can provide zero-emission fleet solutions for your company.
If you want an efficient, versatile pickup truck for your daily commutes and weekend adventures in Orlando, Florida, but think the Ford Super Duty and F-150 are too big, you’re going to love the compact Ford Maverick that’s coming to Tropical Ford.
The brand-new Ford Maverick pickup truck is a game-changer in the brand’s truck lineup, being the first standard full-hybrid pickup ever released in America. Its small dimensions, 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder hybrid powertrain, and continuously variable transmission yield a fuel consumption rate that’s around 40 mpg in cities like Orlando.* You’ll be hard-pressed to find a pickup in Florida that achieves comparable efficiency.
The Maverick is also unique because it has a unibody construction, whereas other Ford trucks have the typical body-on-frame construction that make them more suitable to rough off-roading. What does that mean for drivers like you? The Ford Maverick is more suitable to hauling and towing small loads in urban areas like Orlando, making it a better option for crowded cities and suburbs than the F-150 or Super Duty.
While it’s not the most powerful truck in the Ford lineup, it’s definitely the most efficient and most tech-savvy. Plus, it’s versatile to suit your particular lifestyle here in central Florida, offering innovations like the FLEXBED™ system, Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies, and the Ford Integrated Tether System
Plus, the Maverick has an incredibly low starting price that rivals the cost of many economy sedans you’ll find on the market.
If the new Ford Maverick sounds like the truck for you, contact Tropical Ford. We’ll be glad to reserve one for you when it arrives at our dealership.
*Actual mileage will vary. Final EPA-estimated ratings available later in the 2021 calendar year.
Your car is a sophisticated machine, but sometimes, when something is going wrong, it won’t activate the “check engine” or other dashboard warning lights. If your car sends you any of the following signs, it is time to make a car maintenance appointment at the service department at Tropical Ford.
Your vehicle produces a bevy of sounds. You know what noises are normal and what are not. If you hear strange, unfamiliar sounds such as banging, rattling, grinding, squealing or anything that does not fall into the “normal” spectrum of your car, including clicking, it’s time to head to the service bay at Tropical Ford where our technicians can discover the source of these troubling noises.
If you notice an unpleasant stench wafting from your vehicle, and you can’t blame it on the forgotten fast food sack in the back, something is wrong with your car. Your air conditioning system may be failing if you smell mildew. The catalytic converter is in serious decline if you smell rotten eggs, and your health and safety are at risk if your cabin smells like exhaust.
Your transmission needs attention if your car is lacking its regular get-up-and-go quality when you are shifting gears or if it is outright stalling.
A new addition to the Ford lineup is about to revolutionize the full-size pickup segment. The 2022 F-150 Lightning is Ford’s first all-electric truck — and it boasts some seriously impressive features and capabilities.
The F-150 Lightning carries two electric motors and battery pack options with 230 miles of standard range or 300 miles of extended range. When connected to a fast charger, the Lightning can power up from 15 percent to 80 percent in about 40 minutes.
This truck’s mighty powertrain provides 563 horsepower, 775 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to accelerate 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds. You’ll also get standard 4×4, up to 10,000 pounds of towing capability, and a 2,000-pound payload rating.
Advanced battery power gives the F-150 Lightning some abilities you just can’t get in a regular truck. The lockable, drainable Mega Power Frunk takes up the space that would normally be reserved for a gas engine. It includes four electrical outlets, two USB ports, and room for 400 pounds of cargo.
You can also get up to 9.6 kilowatts of combined power on the go with enhanced Pro Power Onboard — perfect for running tools and appliances. Available Ford Intelligent Backup Power goes even farther, allowing the F-150 Lightning to supply your house with electricity if the power goes out.
With these features and so much more, the F-150 Lightning is sure to leave you amazed. It’ll arrive this spring, but if you want to learn more right away, give us a call here at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida.
