Restyled Ford for 2015

The 2015 Ford models are slowly coming to light as we brought you a peek at the 2015 Expedition last week. Over the past couple of years, Ford has been restyling and redesigning their models so that they all have a unified style. So far all of the new Ford models we have seen have been sporting a fresher look all with a unified grille design.

This week, Autoblog got a first look at the redesigned 2015 Ford Focus which is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Autoblog reports that the Focus will be sporting only some slight changes as the majority of the body lines remain the same. They did note a new rear bumper and taillights on the back of the car and a reshaped hood and new headlights on the front. Head on over to Autoblog to get a glimpse of the restyled Ford for 2015.

2014 Ford Expedition

2015 may be almost a whole year away, but the 2015 models are starting to appear among automakers. One of the highly anticipated Ford models for 2015 is the Ford Expedition. If you happened to be at the Auto Show in Dallas on February 19th, you got a peek at the 2015 Ford Expedition.

New for the 2015 model year, the Expedition will be available with only one engine option. The 2015 fullsize SUV is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine replacing the 2014’s 5.4-liter V8. Ford wants to help drivers get better fuel economy and better low-end torque with the V6 swap.

The 2015 looks very similar to its 2014 counterpart. Ford has put a new three-bar grille on the front and has restyled the headlamps. The rear of the Expedition gets slightly revamped with a chrome tip exhaust and more accents on the hatch.

At Friendly Ford, we are excited to see what the new 2015 Expedition has in store! Be sure to swing by Autoblog to view pictures of the recently unveiled Expedition and be sure to stop by our dealership in Roselle, Illinois to check out the 2014 model.
