While some parents may not want to admit it’s true, it is—a new school year is gearing up to start in the weeks ahead. With that in mind, you may want to upgrade your ride to a new Ford model. The 2019 Ford Fusion and the 2019 Ford Explorer are just two Ford vehicles you may want to consider buying or leasing.

When you slip behind the wheel of a new Ford Fusion, you’ll appreciate how well-equipped the five-passenger sedan is. For the 2019 model year, this fun-to-drive car is offered in the following trims: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. If you look at the base trim, you’ll see that it’s thoughtfully equipped with features like Bluetooth™ connectivity, a sound system, and a USB port.

As you make your way through the sedan’s lineup, you’ll notice that higher trims have even more standard features, such as Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, and an eight-inch touchscreen. You’ll also come across some laudable advanced safety features, which a include a forward collision warning and intervention system, a blind spot monitor that has a rear cross-traffic alert, and dynamic cruise control.

Drivers who want more passenger and cargo room should take a look at the 2019 Ford Explorer. This tried and true SUV boasts three rows of seats, a comfy cabin, and user-friendly technology features. Available in five great-looking, versatile trims, the new Ford Explorer is a smart pick for larger families, drivers who want a higher position on the road, and anyone who wants to look incredibly cool while shuttling their kids around town.
