The Future of the 2018 Ford F-150

2018 Ford F-150Before Bradley drivers know it the 2018 Ford F-150 will be hitting the markets and making its way towards a dealership near you – like Terry’s Ford. We all know that Ford trucks are powerhouses of immense capabilities and high level performance, but what is there to expect from the upcoming 2018 model? There are currently no release dates set or prices available, but there is quite a bit of satisfying information about the vehicle’s specs and features that have us more than a little interested in learning more.

New Powertrains

An exciting upgrade that Peotone drivers can expect with the 2018 Ford F-150 is the introduction of more, powerful powertrain configurations to equip your truck with. In total the 2018 Ford F-150 will have 3.3L Ti-VCT, 2.7L EcoBoost, 5.0L Ti-VCT V8, 3.5L EcoBoost, and 3.0L Power Stroke engines as available options. That’s two more engines than we’re used to! Ford hasn’t let us in on their performance specs, but we’re confident that they will be impressive with a balanced focus on power and fuel efficiency, as they always are.


The 2018 Ford F-150 has also seemed to take more of an interest in providing Bradley drivers with more functionality and accessibility. To do this the vehicle now comes equipped with various helpful extras like LED work lights in the cargo box, an Integrated Tailgate Step, stowable loading ramps, and a BoxLink Cargo Management System. There’s no doubt that these extras will play a big part in making the new 2018 F-Series trucks even more appealing – as if that was possible. Not to mention that it will make loading and unloading cargo at all times of the day safer and simpler.

Keeping Safety Top of Mind

Even during all of the work creating and adding new features and performance enhancements, the Ford F-150 still finds the time to provide Peotone drivers with even more safety and security features to keep passengers and their cargo safe. Some of the features we’re looking forward to seeing include a Dynamic Hitch Assist, BLIS with Trailer Coverage, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Pro Trailed Backup Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go.

The Impressive 2017 Ford F-150 Earns Solid Reviews

The 2017 Ford F-150 was made to impress, and that’s exactly what it’s doing. Take a look at some of the reviews this new model is getting, and then head to Terry’s Ford to make one yours.

Car and Driver Loves the Performance

2017 Ford F-150 King Ranch

2017 Ford F-150 King Ranch

The 2017 Ford F-150 comes with a 3.5L EcoBoost® engine that delivers 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. What makes this model so impressive is the 10-speed automatic transmission that allows it to flow through the Peotone roads with ease. Car and Driver is excited about this new performance, stating:

“The legendary F-150—now with an aluminum bed and body—remains the hard-working pickup it’s always been. The base 3.5-liter V-6 makes 253 lb-ft; a 2.7-liter turbo V-6 (375 lb-ft) and 5.0-liter V-8 (387 lb-ft) are available, too, but the optional 3.5-liter turbo V-6 (420 lb-ft) is best for towing, boasting a maximum capacity of 12,200 pounds. All engines have a six-speed automatic. Regular cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew bodies as well as 5.5-, 6.5-, or 8-ft beds make the F-150 fit many needs.”

Motor Trend Enjoys the New Performance Features

The F-150 features a variety of new features to make it stand out on the Bradley roads. For instance, it offers a class-exclusive cab and box fabricated from high-strength military-grade aluminum alloys. In addition, it also boasts other upgraded features that Motor Trend noticed:

“The second-gen engine has the same displacement and bore centers, so it can be built on the same assembly line. Beyond that, every component is new, and the engine now has both direct- and port-injection (two injectors per cylinder), new turbochargers with a lighter turbine wheel, and standard auto start-stop technology that restarts the truck quickly and almost seamlessly when you hit the gas pedal.”

Edmunds is Excited for the Towing and Payload

When you choose the heavy-duty engine on the new F-150, you’ll also enjoy 12,200 pounds of towing capacity, which means you can handle any tough job that’s thrown your way. Edmunds is thrilled about it, stating:

“You won’t have any trouble finding a capable pickup that meets your needs in the diverse 2017 Ford F-150 lineup. The F-150 boasts impressive tow and payload ratings and some of the best fuel economy in the light-duty segment. To top it all off, the off-road-ready Raptor model is back and ready to fly over any terrain you put in front of it.”

2013 Ford Mustang vs. 2014 Ford Mustang

2014 Ford MustangWe’re going to call it right from the start: it’s a draw! In fact, its not even a competition, because the 2013 Ford Mustang and the 2014 Ford Mustang are the exact same car. The 2013 model proved to be so successful that Ford chose not to change a thing for this model year. That means that, no matter which Mustang you go with, you’re making a great choice. Read up on what both models have to offer, and then plan a trip to Terry’s Ford of Peotone to check out all the Mustang models we have in our inventory.

Different Trims Offer Different Engines

Both the 2013 and 2014 Ford Mustang come with four available trim options. The V6 and the V6 Premium make use of a 3.7L V6 that can produce 305 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The GT and GT premium trims upgrade to a 5.9L V8 that puts out 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but you have the option to go with an automatic that offers manual shift control.

Zippy Performance

Independent testing revealed that, no matter what engine or transmission you go with, your Mustang is going to be able to move. According to Edmunds, a?V6-powered Mustang that had been upgraded with the performance package went 0 to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds. Edmunds clocked the V8-powered Mustang with the manual transmission from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

Special Packages Available

If you are looking for a driving experience that is second to none, these Mustang models have two available packages that enhance and fine-tune them to burn up the road. The GT track package adds Brembo brakes, performance axles, an extra radiator, and extra capabilities for engine oil cooling. The performance package adds 19-inch wheels with summer tires, a number of suspension and brake upgrades, a recalibrated stability control system, and a 3.31 rear axle ratio.

Race to Terry’s Ford of Peotone and Leave in a Mustang

The 2015 Ford Mustang is Creating a Lot of Buzz

The 2015 Mustang is expected to a significantly different design from the 2014 model (pictured).

The design of the 2015 Mustang is expected to be significantly different than the 2014 model’s (pictured).

Many car enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the debut of the 2015 Ford Mustang, and you can count the staff here at Terry’s Ford of Peotone among them. There has been a lot of buzz about the new Mustang’s design, particularly because of rumors that it will have a more European look than the traditional classic style this iconic model is known for. Unfortunately for interested drivers, the automaker has released very few details about the 2015 Ford Mustang, but we’ll do our best to speculate with what we’ve got!

What to Expect From the 2015 Ford Mustang

Until recently, the 2015 Mustang has only been spotted wearing heavy camouflage, but that hasn’t stopped the rumors from flying. According to reports from Edmunds, automotive designers close to Ford have used words like “hot” and “stunning” to describe the 2015 model. Jack Telnack, a former Ford design boss, said that the latest version of this vehicle will still be easily recognized as a Mustang but will feature a fresh new design.

Designer Stewart Reed spoke to Edmunds about all of the hype surrounding the new Mustang. He said that it’s exciting to hear that designers who are not part of the team have had such high praise even just by seeing the car from a distance. Reed also mentioned that Ford is focusing on producing special-edition Mustangs as well.

Later on this year, it is likely that photos of this mysterious Mustang will appear before the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Until then, consumers will just have to wait for more details to be released.

Those who don’t want to wait until 2015 to get their hands on a new Mustang can check out the 2014 edition of this sporty performance-inspired model. The 2014 Ford Mustang base model features a 3.7L V6 engine that provides 305 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The engine and its 6-speed manual transmission deliver an EPA estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg for city driving and 29 mpg on the highway.

For instance, why not considering driving to your next vacation spot in a comfortable new Ford instead of flying? Here are some fun family vacation driving tips.

Make the Car Ride a Part of Your Vacation, Not Merely a Means of Getting There

If you have kids, chances are,they’re going to get restless quickly, and the ever-popular phrase “are we there yet,” will come spilling out of their mouths quite frequently. To at least postpone this, and have the car ride be a part of the vacation, instead of a means for getting there, there are tons of activities you and your kids can take part in – word games are one of them. Board games are fun, but in a car, they’re certainly not the most practical. Instead, try a game where you look out the window and try to name things that begin with each letter of the alphabet – this is a great way to pass the time.

If your car has a DVD player, another way to enjoy the car ride, is by turning it into a theater. According to, “you can even rent Redbox movies for $1/night and return them to any Redbox on your route.” Let’s not forget the practical concerns of a road trip though. No family vacation would be safe or responsible with an adequate first aid kit. You really never know when someone might get a small cut or a headache.
