Meet the Ford F-750 EarthRoamer

Ford F-750 EarthRoamer

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.

Besides 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.

A 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.

Tyler 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.

New Ford Bronco Inspired by Brazil’s Troller

New Ford Bronco - Tropical Ford BlogOff-roading enthusiasts and SUV fans are on the edge of their seats awaiting the arrival of the new Ford Bronco. The long-awaited SUV is slated for launch in 2020, but some details are already slipping to the public. For example, the new Ford Bronco will be more like the Troller out of Brazil than the F-150 Raptor.

Most American drivers aren’t familiar with Brazil’s Troller. All you really need to know is that the SUV is off-road capable and offers an excellent utility-driven design. The Ford Bronco, however, will be offered as a four-door SUV rather than a two-door model like the Troller.

The Bronco will offer a standard 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine designed to offer performance and efficiency. Don’t fret, off-roaders. The 2021 Ford Bronco will feature capability beyond measure.

“Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, said in January.

While Ford has yet to comment on the leaks, the company did confirm that the SUV will be based on the Ranger pickup truck. Even so, it gives Bronco fans more to look forward to as 2020 creeps closer with each passing day.

We here at Tropical Ford can’t wait to see the new Ford Bronco make its public debut!

Tips for Off-Roading for the First Time in a Ford Raptor

tips for off-roading - Tropical Ford BlogThere’s no other pickup like the Ford Raptor. This truck was built for off-roading through and through. From its powertrain to its suspension to every little detail, the rugged terrain is this truck’s destiny. If you’re taking a Ford Raptor or another Ford truck from Tropical Ford out off-roading for the first time this summer, use these helpful tips for off-roading to stay safe and have the most fun.

Read the Manual
Before you go off-roading, you need to make sure you understand everything about your vehicle. Read your owner’s manual to learn about things like traction control and the four-wheel drive system to get a basic understanding of its capabilities.

Practice First
The Ford Raptor delivers exceptional handling and excellent grip on mountain roads and twisty, rocky surfaces. But before you take the Ford Raptor out for the real deal, get a little practice in on a smaller scale first. Find small creeks, steep inclines, and gravel roads where you can get a feel for how the truck handles so you’ll be more prepared.

Bring the Right Tools
Don’t just head out empty handed. Not only should you bring with you a first aid kit for your safety, but you’ll need tools for your truck’s safety too. Look into purchasing the type of tools that will help you recover should you get stuck, like a quality winch, which can pull you out of a muddy situation.
