Sedan or SUV: Which is Right for You? | Orlando, Florida

Have you been thinking about buying a new vehicle, but you just aren't sure what to buy?  Before you can choose a model, you have to decide on the right type of vehicle.  Sedans include many classic models such as the world-famous Focus, Fusion, and Fiesta.  There are also sports sedans like the Mustang or the fuel-efficient C-MAX, as well as the family-friendly Taurus.  On the other hand, you may also be drawn to SUVs - large, capable, and roomy vehicles.  This includes models like the Escape, Explorer, Expedition, Edge, and Flex.  We've written a list of reasons to consider buying either a sedan or an SUV to help you choose the perfect vehicle for your driving needs.


1. Are you looking for the best gas mileage?
If you're looking for the absolute best in gas mileage, check out the selection of Ford sedans. With smaller engines and lighter designs, vehicles like the C-MAX (42 mpg) and Fiesta (36 mpg) have excellent efficiency.

2. Want plenty of cargo space and legroom?
Get a Ford SUV. The Expedtion has seating for up to eight people, and the Flex and Explorer have seating for up to seven. Plus, the Expedition EL has a whopping 130.8 cubic feet of cargo volume - enough for virtually anything.

3. Are you an adrenaline junkie?
A sedan is ideal for you - especially the new Ford Mustang. This classic American muscle car is the best-selling sports car in the country. When properly equipped, the ShelbyGT350 models get up to 529 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. With aerodynamic contours and lighter bodies, sedans are better for the track.

4. Going off road?
For those who travel off the beaten path, consider a Ford SUV. These models come with tuned suspensions and taller ride heights - perfect for added ground clearance. Plus, with available four-wheel drive on some vehicles, you can have truly impressive handling.

5. Worried about emissions?
Sedans tend to give off fewer emissions, especially hybrids and electric vehicles (EVs) like the Focus Electric, Fusion Hybrid, C-MAX Hybrid, C-MAX Energi, and Fusion Energi. Plus, excellent fuel economy will save you at the pump.

6. Are you an outdoors person?
Ford SUVs not only have more interior room than sedans, but they are also great for carrying kayaks, bikes, skis, and other equipment on the exterior. Roof racks and bike racks are among many features you'll find that'll make driving easier.


Whether you're looking for power or efficiency, space or low emissions, you'll find what you need as long as you shop Ford.  Stop by Sun State Ford Today to learn more about the latest lineup of quality Ford vehicles!
