The crossover is relatively new, but it is already one of the most popular vehicle segments in America. Ford offers two class-leading crossover vehicles in the Edge and Flex. While “crossover” is sometimes used interchangeably with “compact SUV,” there are distinct differences between the two. If you are looking for a spacious and fuel-efficient family vehicle, visit your local Ford dealership and test drive a new crossover today. Here are some reasons why so many families are cruising in crossovers these days.
Better Fuel Efficiency
Crossovers are smaller and lighter than traditional SUVs, which mean they typically achieve better city and highway fuel economy ratings. The Ford Edge, for example, has a highway fuel economy rating of 27 mpg, while the Flex is close behind with 25 mpg highway rating. Visit your local Ford dealership and see for yourself how much fun you can have while achieving close to 30 mpg on the highway.
In addition to better fuel efficiency, the other benefit of the crossover’s lighter design is that crossovers such as the Edge and Flex handle and perform more like sedans than SUVs. But while the Ford Edge and Flex may provide car-like comfort, they offer more passenger space and cargo capacity than full-size family sedans.
The crossover battle is heating up among major automakers, and that’s good news for drivers. Crossovers today come with more features, more amenities, and offer better performance than ever before—and typically for a competitive price. Both the Edge and Flex have a base MSRP starting under $30,000.
If you want to see what all of the fuss is about for yourself, come to Liberty Ford. We offer a terrific selection of new and pre-owned Ford crossovers, in addition to pickup trucks, sedans, coups, and hatchbacks.

With its sweeping roofline, raked profile, and wide, aggressive stance, it’s easy to mistake the new 2015 Ford Fusion with a luxury European sedan. Even the interior is dripping with luxury features and amenities. In addition to providing a first-class driving experience, the new Fusion was also designed to make you fall in love with driving all over again. Here are some of the most exciting features of the new 2015 Ford Fusion, coming soon to a Ford dealership near you.
Available EcoBoost Technology
If you want the best combination of performance and efficiency, opt for one of the available EcoBoost in-line four-cylinder engines. Combining turbocharging, direct injection, and twin independent variable cam timing, the EcoBoost engine is proof that performance and efficiency are not mutually exclusive.
Next-Gen SmartGauge® with EcoGuide
If fuel efficiency is your primary concern, consider the Fusion Hybrid or Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid. Both of these fuel-efficient models come with the dual LCD next-generation SmartGuage with EcoGuide, which provides real-time information to help you maximize efficiency and go further for less. The EcoGuide feature acts like a virtual coach, training you to drive your vehicle more efficiently.
Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
The 2015 Ford Fusion is available with Ford’s Intelligent AWD system, which uses sensors to constantly monitor traction and balance torque between the front and rear wheels to enhance handling and maximize grip. Intelligent AWD is available on SE and Titanium gas models equipped with the EcoBoost 2.0-liter engine.

The process of finding your next car doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, if you can decide whether to buy a new or pre-owned car first, you can narrow down your available choices and learn more about what type of car is best for you. Before you visit your local Ford dealership in Baltimore, read on for help in deciding whether new or used is best for you.
Do You Have a Down Payment or Trade-In?
Because of rebates, financing specials, and other new car incentives at Ford dealerships, it is easier to buy a new car without making a sizeable down payment as long as you have good credit. If you finance a used Ford, however, you will probably need a down payment or trade-in.
Is There a Good Reason to Take the New-Car Depreciation Hit?
Did you know that new cars usually drop in value by 25 percent in just the first year? If you take great care of your cars and drive them for a long time, a new Ford is probably an excellent investment. But if you replace your cars often, buying a used Ford would be the better choice for you.
Can You Afford to Maintain and Repair a Used Car?
Even if you buy a used car with fewer miles that was well maintained, once it accrues about 30,000 miles it will need more maintenance and repair services than a new car. If you can budget maintenance and repair expenses into your budget, and fit dealership service into your schedule, then a used car will be a great choice for you.
There is a lot to consider before you visit a Ford dealership and make the big decision to purchase a new or used car.
