After a long winter, it’s always a pleasure when the roads clear up and driving becomes fun again. Across Toronto and southern Ontario, cars glisten in the sunlight after a visit to the car wash, and even people who are happy with their vehicles can find themselves tempted by the fresh ranks of cars on the lot of their local dealership.
If you’re looking for a new car this year, there are plenty of tempting options. Shoppers in the Greater Toronto Area should stop by the Colony Ford Lincoln Blog to learn more about the newest Fords available. Whether you’re in the market for a family friendly SUV, a working truck, or something a little more adventurous, Ford has lots of options that can meet your needs.
Ford Edge SEL
Since it first appeared more than a decade ago, the Ford Edge has built a reputation for being one of the best midsized SUVs on the market, and the 2018 version offers a lot of compelling features. The standard Twin Scroll 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine makes it an environmentally friendly choice, while its roominess and comfort make it ideal for long family road trips and hauling cargo.
Ford F-150 Lariat
The Ford F-150 has been the best selling vehicle of any kind since 1981, and much of that success has been built on the F-150’s practical qualities: it’s a tough, reliable vehicle that can get the job done. The Lariat is for shoppers who want the power and muscle of the F-150 and the comfort and luxury of a high end SUV. The 2018 Lariat boasts an 8-inch productivity screen, ambient lighting, power-adjustable pedals with memory, and memory seats.
Ford EcoSport SE
The subcompact Ford EcoSport is a truly innovative take on the compact SUV. Where other compacts take the basic idea of a mid-sized SUV and shave a few inches off, the Eco Sport takes the best of the SUV’s maneuver ability and power and distils it into a small, agile package that is fun to navigate around narrow streets
Ford Mustang GT
Sometimes you want a practical car that will get you where you’re going without any fuss. But when the snow melts and the tang of spring is in the air, plenty of Canadians feel the urge for something a little more sensuous. The 2018 Ford Mustang GT delivers—in spades. This might be why it showed such strong global sales last year.
Much has been made of the sixth generation Mustang, and the newest model maintains the excitement and quality that made the pony car such a phenomenon when it first appeared fifty years ago, including a 5.0-litre, 460 horsepower engine. If you’ve always wanted to be the owner of a Mustang, maybe this is the year to make that dream come true.
Many car enthusiasts are already looking forward to the 2019 offerings, but don’t let the knowledge that new models are coming stop you from exploring the ones that are already on the market. 2017 was a good year for Ford, and for careful shoppers there are still a lot of great deals to be had.
