If You Chose Mostly As, Consider a 2020 Ford F-150 for Sale Near You

You have things to do, and need a powerful vehicle that can help you along the way. The Ford F-150 is one tough truck! It comes standard in rear wheel drive, with a 4×4 option. With six trim levels and three body styles to choose from, there’s the perfect Ford F-150 on our lot in Leavenworth for you.

Six engine choices, up to a giant 5.0-liter V8 and either a 10-speed automatic or 6-speed automatic transmission, makes the F-150 an all-around pick-up truck with the capabilities to do anything you need done. The maximum payload and conventional towing capabilities max out at 7,850 pounds and 17,100 pounds, respectively. The engine size and seating arrangement you choose is up to you. See our inventory of F-150 trucks at our Ford Dealership near Kansas City.

If You Chose Mostly Bs, Test Drive a 2020 Ford EcoSport Compact SUV in Leavenworth

You’re adventurous and environmentally friendly, so you need a vehicle that is, too. The Ford EcoSport is a compact crossover that proves good things come in small packages. An efficient but zippy engine with front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive drivetrains handles nimbly like a car while still offering you plenty of cargo room with its folding rear seats and hatchback.

The EcoSport is perfect for driving through Kansas City, and will sync to either your Android or Apple phone while providing a wi-fi hotspot for your passengers. And achieving up to 29 miles per gallon, the EcoSport is also a smart option if you’re concerned with conserving fuel and money; it’s also the least expensive of Ford’s SUV options. Shop our 2020 Ford EcoSport SUVs for sale near you.

If You Chose Mostly Cs, Take the 2020 Ford Explorer or 2020 Ford Expedition for a Spin!

The Ford Explorer is the smaller of your two choices, but that doesn’t mean it’s inadequate. It boasts impressive safety features, lots of cargo space, and powerful engines to get you and your family from point A to point B in style, comfort, and safety. The mid-size Explorer seats up to seven, and the second-row captain’s chairs make it easy to access the third row bench. It accommodates four car seats in its airy cabin, making it the perfect choice for parents, too.

Well-equipped Ford Explorer SUVs can tow up to 5,600 pounds, which means it’s capable of pulling small trailers with all your gear, pop-up campers, a boat or other watercraft for your trips to the Lake of the Ozarks, and more. The advanced safety features include blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rearview camera, pedestrian detection, emergency braking, and more. Plus, the Ford MyKey system reminds your passengers to wear their seat belts and lets you control speed and stereo volume for a secondary driver, like a teenager learning the rules of the road. See our selection of Ford Explorer SUVs.

The 2020 Ford Expedition is one of the best large SUVs in its class. If you want a powerful engine, a spacious interior with upscale finishes, coupled with excellent fuel economy, the Expedition should be the first on your list. This large SUV seats eight people, including up to five car seats, and they’re all easily accessible, too. If hauling cargo is your goal, we challenge you to try to fill its 104.6 cubic feet of space (with all rear seats folded down), or 121.5 cubic feet if you go with the Ford Expedition Max, an even larger, 4×4 version of this great SUV.

Its 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission gets up to 23 miles per gallon, the best in its class. A well-equipped Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds (just be sure to choose the Heavy Duty Trailer Tow package) for all your weekends of family fun. Test drive one of our Ford Expedition models today.

If You Chose Mostly Ds, Take a Ride in the 2020 Ford Escape or 2020 Ford Edge

Both the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape are roughly the same length, and while the Edge is considered a mid-size SUV and the Escape is a compact SUV, you might find yourself debating between the two. Both seat up to five in two rows, but the Edge offers about 8 more cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down than its smaller sibling, the Escape.

The Edge has two full car seat LATCH systems, plus a tether anchor for the middle seat, while the escape only offers two LATCH systems. Either work well for small families, and the backseat space is actually quite comparable!

The 2020 marks a complete redesign of the Escape, which comes with a 180-horsepower turbocharged three-cylinder engine, up to a 250-horsepower turbo-four in its three trim levels with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Expect to get a whopping 33 miles per gallon on the more efficient models. The Edge, too, comes in three trim levels, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and up to 29 miles per gallon on its 250-horsepower engine. The 335-horsepower engine gets slightly less, but the Edge’s peppy acceleration is worth it.

An added bonus of the Edge is that dual-zone climate control is standard, which means keeping pets, children, or other passengers in the rear seats comfortable is much easier than with the Escape. However, you can expect to spend less out-of-pocket for the Escape, if that’s your preference. Test drive a 2020 Ford Escape at our Leavenworth Ford dealership, or take a 2020 Ford Edge out for a spin.
