The new Ford Puma ST marks the first Ford Performance SUV to launch in Europe. This athletic model is boldly styled and delivers exhilarating performance.
Motivated by a 1.5-liter EcoBoost—the same one found under the hood of the sporty Fiesta ST—the exciting-to-drive Puma ST serves up 197 horsepower and balances it out with impressive fuel economy. Performance is the top focus for the Ford Puma ST, which boldly wears an upgraded chassis with retuned dampers, a twist-beam, and anti-roll bars, as well as a limited-slip differential for a smoother ride.
Speaking of smooth, the new Ford Puma ST rides on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Capable of reaching high speeds, the Puma ST benefits from 17% larger brakes and a 25% faster steering ratio.
But while we could talk about the Puma ST’s performance all day, one of its truly standout features that we find most exciting is its range of eye-catching exterior colors, including Mean Green, Desert Island Blue, and Fantastic Red.
For now, Ford has no plans to bring the Puma across the pond to here in the States (neither as the regular or ST variant). But if you’re ever in Europe on holiday and have your choice at the rental office, we highly recommend taking a spin in the Puma ST.

If you’ve been yearning for a capable vehicle custom-built for outdoor adventures, it doesn’t get any better than the upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco. For its long-awaited return, the legendary off-road model is packed to the gills with features worth getting excited about.
Whether you’re exploring the less-charted areas of Florida or trying to tackle the nation’s most demanding terrain, the Bronco has your back. The 2021 model features a class-exclusive system that gives you information on more than 1,000 miles of topographic trail maps so you can know what you’re up against before you hit the road.
To complement the 2021 Ford Bronco’s rugged good looks, the automaker gave the legendary 4×4 SUV a set of easily removable components. You can take off the roof on both cloth- and hard-top models, detach the doors, and lift away the rear windows. Ultimately, you can open up a largest-in-class open-top view to take in the sights while you cruise around Orlando.
One of the defining features of the original Bronco was its ability to dominate even the roughest patches of wilderness, and that capability is still present in the 2021 model. With the exclusive Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. (Goes Over Any type of Terrain) Modes™, you can choose from up to seven settings to optimize performance in nearly all conditions.
Just when you thought the 2020 Ford Expedition couldn’t get any better, the brand decided to add the Limited FX4 Off-Road Package. Much like the package by the same name on the Ford Ranger, the latest Expedition FX4 bundle will come with off-road features such as Terrain Management, tuned shocks, skid plates, and other rough-and-tumble features.
The Expedition Limited FX4 is rugged, and
it’s perfectly designed for your next adventure. The Expedition seats seven
people comfortably — which means you can bring plenty of friends along — while
the 32-inch all-terrain tires grip virtually any type of terrain you’re bound
to encounter. Paired with a smart suspension, underbody protection, and a
limited-slip differential, the Expedition will let you leave the beaten path
with greater ease.
“There’s a growing trend in people looking
to enjoy rugged terrain without having to give up the refinement, comfort or
convenience of getting there,” said Devin McParlane, Ford Expedition consumer
The Terrain Management System adds even
more off-road potential by selecting the proper power transfer, engine control,
and gear ratios for the type of environment in which you’re driving. The
Expedition can also tow up to 9,200 pounds and can easily haul all of your
camping, hunting, and fishing gear with the spacious interior and foldable

The all-new Escape
comes with a standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety suite, which includes
Pre-Collision Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking. These technologies use
sensors to detect potential car accidents and apply the brakes if necessary.
During IIHS testing, for instance, the Escape avoided collisions at 12 mph and
25 mph — earning the vehicle a Superior rating.
To earn the Top Safety Pick award, the Escape scored “Good” in all six aspects of the crash tests, including driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, head restraint, and passenger-side small overlap front tests.
What else is distinct
about the Ford Escape’s safety features? The Escape Titanium comes with LED
reflector headlights to optimize visibility, and the model scored exceptionally
well when it came to child seat anchors. You’ll also find a Blind Spot
Information System to monitor hard-to-see areas, available Active Park Assist
to make parking easier than ever, and available Adaptive Cruise Control to keep
you at a safe following distance.

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.

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.
Off-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!
