The ROUSH P-51 Mustang Proves The Future is HereTags:
The future has arrived. Smartphones, tablets, and social media dominate modern life. Now it’s time to introduce the next big thing. No, not flying cars. I’m talking about ROUSH’s 2017 P-51 Mustang.
Ford combined the latest design elements, technology, and engineering capabilities to create a stellar modern invention. The P-51 Mustang uses ROUSH’s Active-Exhaust, which lets drivers control their car via an iOS phone. You can alter the time and degree of the exhaust valve’s operation straight from your smartphone.
ROUSH’s new model demonstrates more than just new technology. It also packs a powerful punch. The P-51, named after a fighter plane, is the strongest pre-titled car ever built. Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 comes with a 2.3-liter TVS supercharger with a stage 2 upgrade. What does that mean? The engine has 727-horsepower that lets this Mustang flex its muscles.
The P-51 combines sleek new features with old-school favorites in its design. It’s modeled after the famed pony car and current Ford Mustangs but also includes a range of alterations. Exclusive to the new model are custom badges, front grille ambient lighting, a rear deck lid spoiler, and a carbon fiber front splitter. Take a look to learn more:
The future may be here but it might not last long. Only 51 2017 ROUSH P-51’s are expected to be built. But fans can enjoy a baseline model in the 2017 Mustang GT. Contact us today to find the car for you.
2018 Ford Mustang Gets Retro LookTags:
Ford recently announced a number of old school touches will be added to their 2018 Pony Package. While the model includes modern sensibilities, it’s also loaded with retro features like a chrome corral and a tri-bar pony badge on the rear. A stripe above the side skirts helps to complete the classic look.
The 2018 Ford Mustang Pony Package will include the return of at least one iconic item – the logo surrounded in a chrome corral. This marks the first inclusion of the badge design since the anniversary package in 2015.
The “pony-in-corral” grill badge isn’t the only reason to get excited for the 2018 Ford Mustang. It will also include sleek new features like 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, bright beltline and window trim, and carpet floor mats with an embroidered logo.
Take a look:
The Pony Package is a dress-up version of the 2018 Ford Mustang. It’s only available in an EcoBoost model that’s armed with a 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 engine. You cannot get this design with the 2018 GT with 5.0L V8.
The future has arrived with an ode to the past. The 2018 Ford Mustang is expected to arrive at dealerships in October. Call us today to learn more about this new model.
Ford Brings Back The Chrome Corral On The 2018 MustangTags:
There is nothing more iconic than the pony emblem on the Ford Mustang. Since 1964, the distinct logo has marked the car to let everyone know that, yes, this is a Mustang. While the horse has remained, one notable feature that has been absent in recent years is the equally unique chrome corral that once surrounded the badge.
Now the pony is coming back home.
Ford recently announced a new appearance package for the 2018 Mustang that will feature the chrome corral right in the middle of the grill. The addition honors the car’s long heritage of being an icon among classic vehicles. However, don’t assume this Mustang is just a vintage remake. This offering will come with Ford’s EcoBoost technology which increases engine performance without sacrificing overall efficiency. The company hopes an additional port fuel injection and 10 speed transmission will also improve milage.
Other updates in the Pony Package include 19” polished aluminum rims, ebony horse logos on the carpeted floor mats, and a tri-bar mustang badge on the rear decklid. New LED headlights, fenders, and a lower vented hood round out the model’s design upgrades.
Look for the 2018 Mustang in October. Contact us today to reserve your own steed.
Ford Introduces Small But Mighty New CrossoverTags:
Small sized SUVs are experiencing increasing popularity. This makes the launch of EcoSport perfectly timed in the market. The Ecosport is aimed towards empty nesters and millennials, who crave the versatility without needing the full size of the Ford Explorer.
While similar to the Ford Escape, the EcoSport is smaller in size and sportier in design. It will be available in 2018 in four versions, the S, SE, SES, and Titanium. The EcoSport features a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine and front-wheel drive. Drivers will have the option to upgrade to an optional 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive.
Ford EcoSport Titanium edition will boast a state of the art sound system complete with 10 675-watt speakers and feature a Harman audio system. The focus was on creating an elite, world-class music experience for Titanium drivers. The emphasis on audio made it only natural that EcoSport’s prestigious launch, titled “Go Small, Live Big”, took place at the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and featured hip-hop producer and performer DJ Khaled.
The Ford EcoSport is already available in the Indian market, where it will continue to be produced. Ford will be the first American automaker to import Indian produced vehicles to the US.
Contact Key West Ford today for all of the details and updates on this exciting new crossover.
The 2018 Ford EcoSport Is Already Gaining BuzzTags:
In response to this shift in SUV thinking, Ford is bringing EcoSport to the US and Canadian markets. According to Driving .ca, the big announcement was made on Snapchat, with DJ Khaled at the helm of the reveal. While this type of social media savvy message may not have caught the attention of the empty nesters, the buzz is quickly spreading. In fact, the EcoSport is already highly acclaimed in other parts of the world. According to Autoblog.com, it’s the best selling compact SUV outside of the US.
EcoSport’s sleek and sporty look has hints of both the Ford Edge and Escape, but definitely cuts a figure all its own. It has a streamline, but muscular style that is sure to please a wide range of buyers. Despite its trim design though, as explained on the Ford website, EcoSport’s interior is notably roomy, with ample head and leg space.
Those interested in the EcoSport will have their choice of 10 colours and four trim levels. Higher end models have an 8-inch colour touch screen. The available Sync 3 technology with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push the intuitive nature of this vehicle over the top.

2016 Ford Focus RS Released GloballyTags:
That is, until now.
Introducing the sleek, hatch-back 2016 Ford Focus RS, available worldwide for your driving pleasure.
New York Daily News reports of a test drive, that this turbocharged, manual shift vehicle has the awe of a sports car in compact design, housing a 2.3-liter GTDI EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine. This baby growls with 350 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. And the 350 pound-feet of torque at 3,200 rpm certainly isn’t anything deserving of guffaw.
While it may look the part of a compact sedan, the Ford Focus RS is certainly not meant for the carpool lane (though, who would blame you if you picked the kids up in it occasionally?). It’s all-wheel-drive goodness disguised as a hatch-back. Maybe it’s not totally suited for mudding or off-roading, but it will certainly get you where you need to go with a bit of flair under the hood and at your fingertips.
So, welcome to global experiences of scenic mountain S-curves and farm country straight-aways, Ford Focus RS. We sure hope you’ve brushed up on a few languages during your manufacturing childhood – you’re going to need it in the adult world!
The Ford Super Duty has always been able to tackle tough jobs that are often times also difficult, yet allowed the driver a peace of mind in its handling power. And Ford Motor Company's 2017 model doesn't plan on taking a step back from this idea any time soon. The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the strongest and most capable in its class, with an astounding 48-gallon tank that significantly reduces the times in between each fueling session. This massive tank addition is 22 percent larger than the 2016 Super Duty and 37 percent larger than the 2016 gas engine's 35-gallon tank.
What's great about the new model is that it has an improved water separator and fuel filter design for less maintanence work needed. AutoWeek also expressed how excited they were in regards to this new model, and significantly noticed how the torque of the Super Duty is close in comparison to the capabilities of some eighteen wheelers! One thing that is for sure is that the 2017 Ford F-Series comes with a whole new level of power, and much lower need to constantly fuel and maintain at inconvenient times. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty will be available this Fall for sale in Renton, WA, and will start around $32,535.
The dial located in the center console will allow drivers to select the mode and change systems such as suspension, throttle, steering and transmission. The modes to keep an eye out for are; the Engine mode, which improves throttle response, the Handling mode, which stiffens the suspension by adjustable dampers, and the Transmission mode, which hold the gears for a longer amount in time, which improves responsiveness.
So the big question is when we can find the 2017 Ford Fusion for sale in Renton, WA. The answer is that they will most likely be making their way into show rooms around early fall. What we do know for sure, that Ford was willing to share, is that the starting price will be $34,350.
