What is the Best Ford SUV for You?Blog May 8th, 2018
The most popular vehicle segment in the automotive world is offering more versatility and affordability than ever before. Ford knows this and that is why this manufacturer is offering some of the top rated 2018 Ford SUVs and Crossovers available.
This compact crossover is perfect for those who are economy-minded and into fun, sporty style. First introduced in Brazil, in 2003, this quirky little SUV is offered in four varied models. Offered in both front and four-wheel drive, each of these trim levels is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost motor, which is turbocharged to enhance performance. For those who opt for four-wheel drive, will have the option of a 2.0-litre direct injected four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This option also provides Intelligent 4WD, which monitors your speed, turn rate and tire slippage.
If you prefer a vehicle that is environmentally friendly, this Ford SUV even offers Auto Start-Stop Technology, which can help reduce fuel consumption all while lowering emissions. This software shuts off the engine automatically, when sitting idle. This even helps you save a little money in the long run!
Although small, this SUV is abundant with cubbies, nooks and crannies to carry all those family essentials. This SUV even offers millennials a chance to stay connected thanks to its 4G internet hotspot.
Ford’s top-selling vehicle in Canada (except for pickup trucks – of course) fits more cargo and offers all-wheel drive. This compact SUV also offers more driver’s assistance features than its competitors. Along with the ability to park itself, this top-selling SUV also has the ability to steer itself within a lane, and even hold its cruise control speed to the speed of the vehicle in front of it.
Depending on the model you choose, your vehicle will be powered by either a 2.5L i-VCT, a 1.5L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, or a 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost rated at 245 HP. For added traction, there’s available Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive as well as a max tow rating of 3,500 lbs. to tow those fun items like a boat or four-wheeler.
If high-rated safety features are the name of your game, then you need to check-out the 2018 Ford Edge. This stylish, yet family-oriented CUV integrates power, performance and handling with technology that inspires confidence behind the wheel. From the intelligent AWD, electric power-assisted steering, to adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with brake support, this Ford Crossover also offers plenty of spacious cargo room to help you multitask your way through the challenges of career, family, and everything else that pulls you in different directions.
For those in need of a sporty crossover with an adventurous spirit, this Ford Crossover also offers two different engines that provide plenty of attitude and maneuverability. Both the turbocharged, direct-injection twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost engine, and the athletic 2.7L EcoBoost offer enough power, performance and fuel efficiency for the Canadian family on the go.
If you need a large SUV that can carry up to eight passengers, then your perfect Ford SUV match might be the 2018 Ford Expedition. Winner of the U.S. News & World Report’s “2018 Best Large SUV for Families” award, this large Ford SUV offers a long list of qualities.
Along with tons of ample space, the Expedition also offers luxury features like a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keep and departure assist, pedestrian detection and even automatic braking to keep everyone around your vehicle safe.
