Here at Tri County Ford we recognize that Nova Scotia’s combination of unique climate, road conditions, and topography, means customers prefer the capabilities afforded by an SUV. That’s why we offer Ford’s entire lineup of SUVs, from the diminutive 2018 Ford EcoSport to the prodigious 2018 Ford Explorer in our New Vehicle Inventory. But which one works best for your budget and lifestyle? That’s why we’re breaking down four of Ford’s most popular SUVs, so you know which one speaks to you!
The EcoSport may be the smallest Ford SUV on offer, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s any less capable thanks to an efficient EcoBoost engine, Intelligent 4WD, and systems like Hill Start Assist and Auto Stop-Start Technology. Add in features like a rear-view camera, SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as BLIS (Blind Spot Information System), and you can be confident that the EcoSport isn’t any less advanced that it’s bigger brethren. And with a starting price of just $20,985, the 2018 EcoSport is also the most affordable SUV Ford offers.
The most popular Ford SUV thanks to its combination of practicality, excellent features, and affordable $23,276 starting price. Smart features like a Foot-Activated Hands-Free Power Liftgate, Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start, and even Enhanced Active Park Assist (which automatically parks your Escape) make this SUV easy to live with. Add in amenities like a Panoramic Vista Roof, heated steering wheel, and supple leather seats, and you have an SUV fit for a king. Of course, with Intelligent 4WD and a 3,500lbs towing capacity, the Escape still provides the strength you expect from an SUV.
For those who like the Ford Escape but want something a bit more powerful and stylish, meet the 2018 Ford Edge. The Edge is all about style and craftsmanship with features like a Front 180-degree Camera with Washer for those tight parking spots, programmable ambient lightning to suit your mood, and your choice of nine different wheel designs to match your personal sense of style. The Edge also comes with your choice of three different engines to meet your performance expectations. And with a base price of just $29,514, who says style has to have a hefty price-tag attached?
For those who need serious cargo space, towing capacity, and the ability to seat up to seven passengers, there’s the 2018 Ford Explorer. The $31,838 base price is an absolute steal given that this SUV can tow up to 5,000lbs and go nearly anywhere thanks to its Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System. And of course, the Explorer is packed with technology like the latest SYNC 3 system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can take full advantage of your smartphone. Add in the Ford Safe & Smart Package which includes BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support, rain-sensing wipers, and even Auto high-beam headlights to make your Explorer the safest vehicle on the road.
