Lots have been said about how sturdy Ford vehicles are. Most people praise the brand for creating impressive quality cars, SUVs and trucks that are known to last a really long time. As for SUVS, the new model is surely a vehicle worth investing in and stated here are the reasons why:
The new SUV for sale looks compact and sleek but it actually has more cargo space compared to the previous models. This extra cargo space that is created when seats are folded down is 67.8 cu. ft.; when the seats are folder up, it's 34.3 cu. ft. This definitely indicates an increase in versatility and functionality. If you're going on a long road trip, this extra space will surely be valuable.
Another major draw of the new SUV for sale is that it has the 1.6 L EcoBoost 1-4 engine which melds the turbo charging technology and direct injection technology. This combination is a complete balance of great fuel economy, (33 mpg on the highway) which is incredibly important these days considering the unstable gas price, as well as remarkable performance. With this balanced technology, there's no sacrificing function for savings. If you have kids that need to be taken to and from school five days a week, the savings from the great fuel economy of the 2013 SUV will prove to be substantial. Fuel economy is complimented by the vehicles aerodynamic design and the use of Active Grill Shutters which reduce air resistance for a smoother, easier ride. It also has the Standard Six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission which allows a shift on the gear shifter knob to let you easily and swiftly shift gears without engaging the clutch.
The 2013 SUV is also an ideal choice for people who support the "green movement." The SUV, aside from having the EcoBoost technology, it also boasts of making use of foam derived from soybeans for its seat cushions and head restraint. Also worth noting is that the carpet used in all new SUV models are made from a blend of post-industrial fibres and post-consumer fibres from recycled plastic bottles. Just think about it: a vehicle that actually reduces non-biodegradable waste!
Lastly, with this 4WD, no road is going to be too tough to drive on; from rain-drenched streets to rough roads - you don't have to worry that such conditions will greatly compromise the performance of the new SUV. It also has a great towing capacity of 3,500 pounds as long as it has the proper towing equipment.
