2018 F-150, Escape take on Ram and Mazda at Heritage Ford

Newest models look to be top picks in their respective classes

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Heritage Ford showroom is a great place to get a close look at the latest 2018 models the manufacturer has produced to this point so far. Two of the models that really have people coming into the dealership excited are the 2018 Ford F-150 full-size pickup and the 2018 Ford Escape crossover SUV. Both of these vehicles not only represent the best of what the automaker has to offer but also some of the top options available in each respective segment of the automotive industry. A new model year means a new group of challengers trying to knock the newest F-150 and Escape from their top spots. Heritage Ford takes a look into both to help its customers with comparison shopping. 

When it comes to the best-selling truck in North America, nothing quite compares to the success the Ford F-150 has had for nearly 35 years. Comparing the 2018 model against the 2018 Ram 1500 shows just how hard the rest of the industry is trying to catch up. Ford has really disrupted the full-size pickup truck class with its extensive use of engine turbocharging and use of military-grade aluminum to help reduce fuel consumption. That trend continues for the 2018 model year.  

The overall performance also puts the 2018 Ford F-150 over what is offered by the newest Ram truck. When properly equipped, the Ford truck has a higher towing capacity than the 2018 Ram 1500. 

Few other industry segments are as competitive as the crossover SUV class. Ford's dominance in this area is very much on display with the comparison of the 2018 Ford Escape and 2018 Mazda CX-3. There is almost no category where the 2018 Escape doesn't outshine the latest Mazda crossover. At a glance, the 2018 Escape makes more power, has more cargo room and can tow significantly more than the 2018 CX-3. 

Anyone can view the entire Heritage Ford inventory by visiting the dealership's website, www.ford.heritagevt.com. The showroom is located at 1600 Shelburne Road, South Burlington, VT 05403. Customers can schedule a test drive with either Ford vehicle today by calling 802-865-8100.
