Ford Mustang - "Highest Ranked Midsize Sports Car in Initial Quality And Vehicle Appeal"
 

Like the Expedition, the Ford Mustang also received the "lowest rate of reported problems" in the Midsize Sports Cars category and the highest numerical score for the APEAL award. Sports car fans will be excited to know that the 2018 Ford Mustang has been designed to give its drivers an action-packed experience each time you hop in the driver's seat. This sports car offers you a choice between two powerful engines: the 2.3L V6 engine and the 5.0L V8 engine. You will be pleased to discover that the 2.3L V6 engine has more torque than in the past, thanks to the transient overboost function inside the engine. Using direct injections and port fuel to crank out torque and power, the 5.0L V8 Coyote engine delivers high-octane performance each and every time. Our highly-knowledgeable staff at Apple Ford, your local Ford dealership in Maryland, will demonstrate how powerful each engine is and which one is the right fit for your Ford Mustang.

Ford F-150 - "Most Appealing Large Light Duty Pickup"

 

The Ford F-150, one of the highest-selling trucks for 40 years, was chosen by J.D. Power as the "Most Appealing Large Light Duty Pickups" and earned the highest numerical score for the APEAL award. Here at Apple Ford, your local Ford dealership in Maryland, we applaud that decision because the Ford F-150 is beloved by truck fans everywhere. The 2018 version of this pickup can be equipped with an available 2.7L Ecoboost engine that will deliver 325 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, and is coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ford Super Duty - "Highest Ranked Large Heavy Duty Pickup in Initial Quality"

 

Though it was a draw for first place in "lowest rate of reported problems," Apple Ford, your local Ford dealership, believes that the Ford Super Duty is the clear winner in the Large Heavy Duty Pickup category. It is because the 2018 Ford Super Duty delivers the high degrees of performance, efficiency, and rugged comfort that the Ford brand is renowned for having. The Trailer Sway Control feature uses the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control system to help keep your truck and trailer under control as you are moving down the road, while the RSC uses gyroscopic sensors to monitor your heavy-duty truck and its turning rates. Thanks to the high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body and fully boxed high-strength steel frame, you can enjoy every adventure you take off the road.
