Just as we all have our favorite flavor of candy, some people enjoy the specific flavor of Ford model vehicles. Ford has more than proven its ability to outlast the competition, as the company has been around for more than 100 years.
Preparing for your epic summer road trip is a long process, and one of the most important elements of a successful road trip is the vehicle you choose to drive. Here is a quick look at some of the most comfortable, road-trip ready Ford models available to you.
Passenger and cargo space champions
You need the comfort of space on a long trip, and Ford is built for such duties. For the group journey, check out some of the highest rated Ford models in the passenger and cargo space department.
The Ford Edge SE is one of the most spacious, yet smaller SUV warriors on the road this year. You can comfortably transport four people in this vehicle with no mumbling and grumbling over leg room.
If you’re traveling with the whole family (and your family is large), try working with a Ford Expedition. There’s enough room in this vehicle to pack half of the house, and then sprawl out for a nice nap.
Gas mileage heroes
Ford definitely has the gas mileage down to a science. The Ford Focus and Fusion are two models that will get you halfway across the country before you need to stop for a fuel up. You’re looking at averaging nearly 40 miles per gallon with the newer Focus and Fusion models.
One of the most expensive parts of traveling is paying for the fuel. Fueling your vehicle and fueling your family can come in under budget with one of these two excellent, efficient Ford models.
Safety is vital on long trips
Driving long distances puts you and your family at an increased risk of an accident on the roads. It is comforting to know that you are riding in a highly rated vehicle in the safety department. Avoid the troublesome effects of a road collision, and check out some of Ford’s safest models this travel season.
The Ford Flex is not only a spacious travel choice, but the vehicle rated well on its safety rating checks. In the event of an accident, you want peace of mind, knowing that your family will make it out unscathed.
Tiny road warriors for summer
If you’re an independent traveler, then space is not a priority. One of the smallest additions to our list is the Ford Fiesta. It may be small, but this little powerhouse will get you where you need to go in style and comfort.
