Ford makes a massive variety of vehicles, from the fuel-efficient Escape to the burly F-350 pickup truck. The automaker recently expanded its portfolio by creating the Ford F-750 EarthRoamer XV-HD, a four-wheel-drive F-750 chassis that supports a tiny home capable of sleeping six people. If you want to go on expeditions with your family without relying on a bulky RV with no off-road capabilities, the Ford F-750 EarthRoamer XV-HD is calling your name.
containing sleeping room for six, the F-750 EarthRoamer boasts a bathroom with
a shower, another bathroom with a toilet, a fully functional kitchen, a dining
area, and a bed lofted above the cabin.
6.7-liter Powerstroke engine generates 330 horsepower and 725 pound-feet of
torque. Plus, the EarthRoamer XV-HD ensures a smooth ride with massive 46-inch
wheels, rear air suspension with shocks, hydraulic leveling, and LED lights,
just to make sure other drivers can spot your house on wheels.
Tatro is the President and Chief Operating Officer of EarthRoamer and his words
reflect the buzz and enthusiasm surrounding the revolutionary vehicle. “The HD is
our most innovative product yet,” he stated. “It utilizes state-of-the-art
construction and systems to bring comfort and functionality to the next level.”
While no dealership offers the F-750 EarthRoamer yet, Tropical Ford offers a massive selection of Ford models. We’ll be happy to help you find the perfect Ford for your lifestyle.
If you own a small business and regularly put miles on your vehicle for business purposes — or even if you are an employee at someone else’s business and use your vehicle for regular business trips — you should be claiming those miles on your tax returns. But you must be able to prove every mile driven to the IRS, or else you’ll face potential hefty penalties.
Should you take the deduction for business mileage on your
taxes, be ready to prove your mileage in the event of an audit. The IRS accepts
proof in two forms: a daily log kept by you, as long as it has lots of
information, or a mileage app that does the admin work for you.
If you’re creating a log of your business mileage, keep a
journal in your car and immediately log each trip after the drive. You will
need to include the date, your odometer reading at the start and end of the journey,
along with the number of miles you’ve driven, and the business reason for the
trip. It is also helpful to include the starting address and the destination
If you would rather rely on your smartphone, you can download one of several business apps for such a purpose. Many apps even let you log your personal and business miles separately. At Tropical Ford, you can find a massive selection of fleet vehicles to suit all of your small business needs.

The 2020 Ford Super Duty won’t arrive at Tropical Ford until the end of this year, but already it’s making waves in the news with its unbelievable number of best-in-class accolades for its three engine options.
The standard 6.2-liter gas V8, for example, delivers
best-in-class max payload capacity at 7,850 pounds.
Need more power? Go with the new 7.3-liter gas V8 engine,
which pumps out best-in-class 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, another
But the most impressive performance stats come from the
available 6.7-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine. This engine achieves
best-in-class diesel gooseneck towing at 37,000 pounds, best-in-class diesel
fifth-wheel towing at 32,500 pounds, and best-in-class diesel conventional
towing at 24,200 pounds. It also cranks out best-in-class horsepower and torque
— 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft respectively.
But that’s not all. Ford also promises that the new 2020
Ford Super Duty truck lineup will also offer best-in-class water fording
capability thanks to the Tremor Off-Road Package.
“Ford truck customers are building a better world with Super
Duty, and we’re helping them work even harder with the most available diesel
towing, payload, torque, and power you can get in a heavy-duty pickup,” explained
Mike Pruitt, Super Duty chief engineer. “We’re excited to be in the nation’s
largest truck market at the State Fair of Texas announcing we’ve surpassed the
kilotorque barrier and made it standard with every pickup truck featuring a
Power Stroke diesel engine.”
Recently, car enthusiasts of all varieties have been increasingly excited over the return of the legendary Ford Bronco in the form of the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco. For 30 years, the Bronco was one of the world’s leading 4×4 SUVs, boasting now-classic styling and incredible capability. And now Bronco fans have even more to get revved up about, as a new trademark request filed by Ford might suggest the coming of a new “Baby Bronco” called the Ford Bronco Scout.
Ford recently filed to trademark the “Scout” and “Bronco
Scout” nameplates. And while it’s not unheard of for auto brands to apply for
trademarks simply to have rights to them, it makes a lot of sense to speculate
that a reveal might be close at hand for the Bronco Scout.
With reports that Ford will soon release a smaller crossover styled after the all-new Bronco being dubbed the “Baby Bronco,” it seems likely that the “Bronco Scout” nameplate could be used to designate just such a vehicle. After all, the Scout name is unmistakably reminiscent of the International Harvester Scout, another 4×4 smiler to the original Ford Bronco. For now, though, we’ll have to content ourselves with the coming release of the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco while keeping an ear to the ground for what’s to come next.

The iconic Mustang is the latest well-known
model to get a hybrid variant, but it plans to leave preconceived notions of
what a “hybrid” is in the past by delivering fast, fun thrills. Much about the
new Ford Mustang Hybrid is still shrouded in secret, save for the brief glance
of what might be the new car during the recent “Future is Built” commercial.
Still, there is one place we can look for more information about what might be
coming from Ford — the company’s patents.
Ford recently filed a patent for a hybrid vehicle twin motor system, in which twin electric motors would power the front wheels while a more traditional engine powers the rear wheels. Though not specified in the patent itself, the illustration that goes along with the patent depicts a V8 engine.
That’s where speculation around the
aforementioned commercial comes in – if you pause the video at just the right
moment, viewers get a glimpse of what’s under the hood, which looks
suspiciously like the diagram in the patent.
Experts are wondering if more information on
the new Ford Mustang Hybrid will come out on the muscle car’s 55th anniversary
this April. Until then, only rumors and patents can give us any insight to what
the 2020 hybrid variant will offer.
While the new hybrid Mustang isn’t released yet, check out the rest of the Ford lineup here at Tropical Ford.
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®).
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.
One of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the year, the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger is set to reclaim the throne amongst midsize pickups early this year. Boasting best-in-class torque with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine, best-in-class EPA-estimated gas mileage, and best-in-class gas payload and towing capability, midsize truck enthusiasts are already enthused about the return of the Ranger.
To make the 2019 Ranger even more appealing, Ford has
announced that Yakima adventure accessories will be available for the Ranger
directly from dealerships.
Ford has designed the 2019 Ford Ranger to be a true companion for outdoorsy adventures. Yakima accessories are tailor-made to enhance the model’s driving experience. Accessories include the BedRock Heavy Duty truck bed rack and a 78-inch crossbar (that allows drivers to carry bikes, boats, and more above the bed). The LongArm bed extender lengthens the truck bed by up to 4 feet and can carry approximately 300 pounds.
With the availability of high-quality Yakima accessories
right through the dealership, drivers can more conveniently customize their new
2019 Ford Ranger to suit their lifestyle and needs.

Ford has never faltered in delivering on its commitment to American workers, providing good jobs to hard-working folks from sea to shining sea. To this end, the manufacturer recently kicked off Ford Ranger production at its assembly plant in Wayne, Michigan.
This newest round of Ford Ranger production marks an $850-million investment by Ford in the 3,000-strong Michigan Assembly Plant. These 3,000 workers are feeling very merry indeed this Christmas season thanks to Ford’s production move. Ford transitioned from production of the Focus at the Michigan Assembly Plant to open availability for production of the 2019 Ford Focus.
doesn’t end with the Ford Ranger, however. Starting in 2020, Ford will also
produce the Bronco once more at the Michigan Assembly Plant.
All of us here
at Tropical Ford are looking forward to the return of the Ford Ranger. The 2019
model promises to be a game-changer. It features a turbocharged 2.3-liter
EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission system,
