Visit DeVos Place in Downtown Grand Rapids Through February 4th
Looking for something fun to do this weekend? The 20th Annual Michigan International Auto Show is going on now at DeVos Place! Our staff was there at the beginning of the show chatting with local Ford fans about what’s ahead, helping present a large sample from the 2018 – 2019 lineup. There were many New Ford vehicles on display, but we wanted to share a few that really stood out this year. Take a look at our list of New Ford Vehicles you don’t want to miss during your visit below or Click Here for more information about the Michigan International Auto Show!
The New 2019 Ford Ranger
We were very excited to see this new prototype on display, giving West Michigan truck fans the chance to see it in person well before it makes it’s debut next year. The New Ford Ranger features a rugged high-strength steel frame backbone, the proven Ford 2.3L EcoBoost engine, and the class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. If you’d like to receive an email alert when the 2019 Ford Ranger arrives at our showroom, click here to sign up!
The New 2018 Ford EcoSport
This is Ford’s most recent addition to the SUV lineup and gives drivers who favor smaller vehicles some options they’d normally only find in larger SUVs. For West Michiganders, perhaps the biggest draw to the New Ford EcoSport is the availability of 4WD on a vehicle nimble and dexterous enough for navigating our downtown area. The low price point also makes this an attractive vehicle for younger shoppers along with amenities geared more towards tech-savvy drivers. We already have a 2018 Ford EcoSport in stock, with plenty more on the way. Take a look at our inventory here!
The 2019 Ford Mustang ‘Bullitt’ Edition
Ford decided to treat West Michigan auto enthusiasts by sending the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Edition to the auto show in Grand Rapids. This limited-edition Mustang pays homage to the 1968 film ‘Bullitt’ starring Steve McQueen, with design elements of the Ford Mustang from the film translated to the 2019 model. The retro-cool green paint, sophisticated chrome accents, hand-stitching on the interior, and the shiny ‘Bullitt’ badge all need to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
The 2019 Ford Edge ST
One of the most welcome surprises from the Detroit Auto Show this year was the 2019 Ford Edge ST, and you’ll find one out on display here. At a passing glance, it looks similar to the 2018 Ford Edge SUV, but if you look closer and you’ll notice the more aggressive stance, larger wheels, slicker tires, and beefier brakes. The finished model will also boast the most powerful V6 engine in its class with a specially-tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine.
The 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake Mustang
Though it wasn’t officially a part of the Ford display, the exhibit it belongs to sits directly next to it. The “Great American Muscle Cars” display shows three sterling examples of Detroit Steel, including this ultra-rare 50th Anniversary Ford Shelby Super Snake Mustang. The monstrous 5.0L V8 with forced induction makes 670 horsepower, though turbochargers can be added to push that number beyond 750. It launches from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and makes the quarter-mile sprint in just under 11. This isn’t your average Mustang GT!
Bonus: 1908 Ford Model T
After getting your ticket from the box office, you’ll immediately see The Gilmore Car Museum’s stunning display of antique and classic cars, including a 1908 Ford Model T and a 1928 Ford Model A. It’s fascinating seeing these vehicles juxtaposed with the 2018 Ford Lineup, so go check them out and chat with the museum representative!
