Meet the new Ford family at LA Auto Show
Every year, Los Angeles plays host to one of the most prestigious auto shows in North America. And every year, the world’s most recognizable and dominant auto makers bring their best vehicles to show off in LA. Of course, Ford Motor Company proudly displays a full lineup of Ford vehicles at the LA Auto Show. Check out this year’s lineup of new Ford cars you would’ve seen at the auto show, courtesy of your local Southern California Ford dealers.
Four decked-out Mustang trims were on full display at the LA Auto Show in 2018. The special-edition Ford Mustang Bullitt stole the show with its throwback styling to a previous era. Two popular production Mustang models, the Mustang GT Premium Convertible and the Mustang EcoBoost Premium Fastback boasted modern sophistication and brute strength. And no auto show is complete without the awe-inspiring Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, the range-topping, track-ready, 525-hp behemoth.
America’s most popular pickup truck stood tall and proud with five trucks all commanding attention. The Ford F-150 Limited displayed the luxury you can find in the F-150 and the F-150 Chrome made waves with bling for days. The Ford F-150 XLT
was proof that the F-150 was there for the everyday hardworking American, and the extra-capable Ford F-150 Super Duty backed it up. The Ford F-150 Raptor, with trail-pounding style and chest-pounding performance, rounded out the F-150 lineup in Los Angeles.
A newly refreshed Ford Edge prominently drew attention with two great models. The Ford Edge ST makes its presence known with ultra-sporty styling, high-tech features, and a turbocharged EcoBoost power plant that makes 335 horsepower. A Ford Edge Titanium also made a scene with its lavish equipment, fine leather interior, and family-friendly interior.
The ultimate sports car from Ford is the Ford GT, and it draws a crowd at every auto show. A low-slung monocoque chassis fit for the racetrack but built for the street is always an attraction. The 647-hp EcoBoost V6 packed in an aerodynamic marvel is a LeMans winner, feeling right at home at the LA Auto Show.
Ford’s SUV lineup was there in full force, making an impression with ravishing style and high-quality finishing. It included the compact Ford EcoSport, one of the most fuel-efficient in its class, the iconic Ford Explorer, the full-size and luxurious Ford Expedition Titanium, and the fun-loving Ford Escape Titanium.
The LA Auto Show is a great venue to show off new vehicle releases, and that’s what you’d find from Ford this year. The all-new Ford Ranger is arriving in 2019 and three models were shined up and available for the world to see. The entry-level Ford Ranger XL, a well-equipped Ranger XLT, and a range-topping Ranger Lariat all drew a buzz from the packed crowd. Expected to be the most fuel-efficient model in its class and with sporty style that goes on for days, be on the lookout for the Ranger early in 2019.
