The auto industry these days is all about choice; you have more freedom and more options than ever before when looking for a vehicle. Ford is no stranger to this approach to making vehicles, which you can see when you look at the incredible lineup of Ford vehicles that are available. Ford SUVs are some of the best on the market, with a wide range of models and sizes available so that there really is something for everyone. That kind of freedom and flexibility in picking an SUV that is perfect for you now makes shopping for a vehicle more fun than ever before.
Of course, so many available options can quickly become overwhelming if you are not sure what to look for or what is out there. Getting into detailed specs on dozens of different SUVs can be exhausting, which is why choosing a Ford makes things so simple. As long as you have a sense of the size of the SUV you want and some details about the passenger and cargo capacity that you need, picking the right model becomes quite simple.
The Ford Motor Company is about so much more than simply making the best vehicles on the road; it has a legacy that goes back more than 100 years. At the heart of America's auto industry, Ford has always stood for a lot more than the vehicles it makes. When you choose one of the amazing Ford SUVs available, you become a part of that legacy and enjoy all the power, precision, and tremendous technology that comes with a modern Ford vehicle.
Whether you are shopping for brand new models or even looking for a pre-owned option, a Ford SUV will keep you on the road for a long time and offer everything you need. A Ford is an SUV-lover's dream vehicle, with plenty of interior space, real power and performance, and a design that makes a lasting impression. Whether you want a small model to fit into even the most modest lifestyle or a full-size beauty that dominates the road, Ford has you covered.
The Ford name is synonymous with quality and dependability. There is a reason so many classic Fords are still on the road, still sought after by car-lovers young and old, and still grabbing attention everywhere they go. Ford SUVs and other vehicles are built to last and include the latest technology and the best features available year after year.
Some other manufacturers focus on getting just one thing right: luxury and sophistication, power and performance, or maybe great safety features. At Ford, however, there is a clear commitment to getting it all right. Ford SUVs have powerful engines that make it easy to conquer any road conditions, whether you are towing a boat or climbing through hilly terrain. Technology is also at the forefront of Ford's designs, with innovations that push Ford SUVs beyond what is current and onto the cutting edge for years to come. And Ford SUVs are among the safest on the road, with excellent ratings and advanced safety technology like Ford's Co-Pilot360, which provides active features to protect you and your loved ones.
Ford SUVs are well known for the impressive performance, innovative technology, and remarkable reliability that they offer. In order to back up this reputation for dependability, Ford offers some of the best new-vehicle warranties that you will find anywhere. This lets you drive with confidence in your vehicle and know that if anything does go wrong, then you are covered for many years to come. The Ford new-vehicle warranties include a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
You also get a 5-year/60,000-mile safety restraint system warranty and a 5-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty that covers perforations to metal body panels due to rust. The powertrain warranty coverage also includes 24/7 roadside assistance with towing and gas delivery, so you always have people you can count on if anything happens while you are driving. All you have to do to keep these warranties active is follow the scheduled service for your vehicle and be sure you have any work done by certified professionals using parts approved by Ford. Just remember that all of these warranties are provided as "whichever comes first" for the duration and mileage; if you put a lot of miles on your vehicle, then you might not be covered for the full period of time and vice versa.
If you are interested in a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Ford, then you should know about Ford's Blue Advantage program, which is what the brand calls its CPO models. There are actually two different levels of Blue Advantage for you to choose from, each with its own perks: Gold Certified and Blue Certified. You will find both of these types of Blue Advantage models at DePaula Ford, so it is important to understand the differences between them in terms of the requirements that must be met and the advantages they offer.
As you can see, both of these programs offer excellent vehicles that provide you with great peace of mind while also saving you money, but there are some important distinctions between them. When you are looking at different CPO Ford models, keep these programs in mind so that you can find a fantastic SUV that will meet your needs and fit your budget. The warranty protection on Blue Advantage Fords is something that you will not find on most used vehicles, which is why these SUVs are so popular and can be difficult to find. If you come across a Blue Advantage model that you are interested in, we recommend acting quickly to not lose out on it.
The current lineup of Ford SUVs is one of the finest collections of vehicles that we have ever seen and will certainly prove to be a high watermark for years to come. Take a moment to look over everything Ford has to offer and find the SUV that is perfect for you.
The 2022 Ford Bronco is the newest member of the Ford SUV family. Available in both two-door and four-door variants, this capable off-road vehicle is built from the ground up to provide unbeatable performance in all conditions. With its rugged body on frame construction, powerful turbocharged engine options, and a plethora of advanced technologies, there is no trail that the 2022 Ford Bronco cannot conquer. However, in addition to being the ultimate off-road machine, this new SUV is also a comfortable vehicle with plenty of features designed to provide a fun and convenient ride both on and off the road. Take advantage of its detachable roof and doors for a true open-air driving experience, or make use of its cutting-edge SYNC 4A infotainment system for on-the-go entertainment.
Mechanically, the 2022 Ford Bronco is an exceptional vehicle designed for hard use on the toughest of trails. Its rugged traditional construction and enhanced suspension mean that you can take the world in stride, and you will have no trouble traversing any obstacle with the available 35-inch all-terrain factory tires. Every 2022 Ford Bronco possesses at least 8.3 inches of ground clearance (at least 11.5 inches with the Sasquatch Package) and can drive through over 33.5-inches of water without a problem. The new 2022 Bronco Raptor has 13.1 inches of ground clearance and can ford 37 inches of water. And, of course, the interior is fully waterproof with marine-grade fabrics, so you will have no worries pushing on through any environment or weather.
Under the hood, the 2022 Ford Bronco comes with one of three powerful engines. The first engine is a 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder that gets 300 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Your second option is a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 that delivers 330 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines are paired with a sophisticated 10-speed automatic transmission, and the smaller engine can also be equipped with a unique seven-speed manual transmission that includes an ultra-low speed crawl gear in addition to the normal six road gears. The third engine is only available on the Ford Bronco Raptor. This engine is a 3.0L EcoBoost V6 that generates 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque.
No matter how you configure your Bronco, one option will remain the same: four-wheel drive. Every Bronco produced comes with a true part-time four-wheel drive system that includes a two-speed transfer case for the worst situations. And this already highly capable system can be upgraded with front and rear locking differentials that will keep all four wheels turning in mud, ice, or even in the air.
When it comes to comfort, the most eye-catching feature of the Ford Bronco is, of course, the vehicle's removable roof and doors. While there are other vehicles that offer a similar feature, the Bronco's implementation of this idea is significantly improved over the competition. The most important enhancement is fairly subtle––the side mirrors are attached to the body rather than the doors. This not only means that you do not lose rear visibility when the doors are removed, but it also makes the doors a significantly simpler and more compact package, allowing them to be safely stored in the rear of the Bronco. Even the four-door Bronco has enough space for all of the doors in the back, giving you the option of removing or attaching them while away from home.
The advantages of the 2022 Ford Bronco are far from limited to mechanical design alone. Despite its rough and ready nature, this is a high-tech vehicle that is filled with cutting-edge technology. The standard infotainment system is the cutting-edge Ford SYNC 4 displayed on either an 8-inch or 12-inch waterproof touchscreen. This system offers all the features expected of a modern car, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support, but also offers unmatched connectivity, including over-the-air software updates for the latest features. And aside from infotainment, the 2022 Ford Bronco includes the full Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced safety technologies as well as the brand new Trail Toolbox collection of off-road driver assistance features. Altogether, you will not want to miss this exciting new addition to Ford's SUV lineup.
This is the little brother of the Bronco family and trades some of the larger SUV's off-road performance for a more traditional design with better road manners. However, do not let the Bronco Sport's less aggressive appearance fool you because, under its skin, it is still a highly capable off-road machine. With standard four-wheel drive, plenty of ground clearance, and some features borrowed from its big brother, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is ready to go wherever life takes you.
While it may be a touch smaller than the full-size Ford Bronco, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is still the size of the average compact SUV and has plenty of space inside. With seating for five and over 65 cu.ft. of cargo space, this fun little machine will have no problem transporting family and friends or hauling the gear you need to adventure into the wild. And if that is still not enough space for your needs, every trims of the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport comes standard with roof rack side rails and has a roof designed to support 150 lbs of cargo.
The Bronco Sport has two turbocharged engine options. The choice is between a 1.5L EcoBoost that gets 181 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque or a 2.0L EcoBoost that yields 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that provides an excellent balance of both performance and efficiency. Choosing the larger engine will also give you steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for quick manual gear shifts to make even better use of the additional power. And while four-wheel drive is standard for all trims and powertrains of the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport, vehicles equipped with the larger engine have a more sophisticated twin-clutch four-wheel drive system that can shift power laterally to improve traction on all terrain.
This highly capable four-wheel drive system is not let down by the body that it is attached to either. Although the Bronco Sport may not be able to keep up with the full-size Bronco, this compact SUV significantly outperforms the other vehicles in its class. With 8.8 inches of ground clearance and 23.6 inches of water fording in its top-of-the-line Badlands trim, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is entirely worthy of bearing the iconic Bronco name. This SUV can even be equipped with 29-inch all-terrain tires straight from the factory, further enhancing its excellent off-road performance.
On the inside, the 2022 Bronco Sport is a well-appointed and feature-rich vehicle. Interior options include plenty of luxury items such as a power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated power seats, keyless entry, and even a heated steering wheel. No matter where you go, the Bronco Sport will keep you comfortable. Technology options are similarly up to date and include the Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen display and a ten-speaker Bang and Olufsen premium sound system. Finally, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport comes standard with the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced driver assistance technologies that includes plenty of active safety technologies from automatic emergency braking to blindspot and rear cross-traffic alerts.
The 2022 Ford EcoSport is a subcompact model that offers a fantastic combination of snack-size design and excellent performance. The EcoSport is just what you would expect from its name: a sporty option that goes easy on the environment while still delivering a fantastic driving experience. With the EcoSport, you will get a great 2.0L engine which gets an estimated 23 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
Available features on the 2022 Ford EcoSport include a power moonroof, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, and customizable ambient lighting. Standard all-wheel drive makes the EcoSport a great option for going on some adventures or simply for improved traction and better driving around Albany. With four trim levels available and a low starting price, the EcoSport has a little something for everyone.
If the EcoSport is smaller than what you are looking for, or you are interested in a hybrid SUV, then consider the 2022 Ford Escape. The Escape is a compact SUV with a fantastic selection of features available on it. You get seating for up to five people in the Escape, so it is not a massive size increase compared to the EcoSport, but you get a bit more cargo space. There are two available engines for the 2022 Escape, including a 2.0L EcoBoost that makes for a sporty and completely enjoyable ride.
Safety features available on the Escape include adaptive cruise control, a lane-keeping system, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. An available head-up display lets you keep track of driving information without ever taking your eyes off the road. Plus, available all-wheel drive with selectable drive modes makes this a Ford SUV you can take just about anywhere.
If you are interested in a hybrid vehicle, then the Escape is a perfect choice. Both a standard hybrid and a plug-in hybrid option are available, so you can get exactly what you want. Both versions get at least 40 MPG combined, although the plug-in hybrid can travel 37 miles on battery power alone. The 12-inch digital instrument cluster and 19-inch wheels make this sleek Ford SUV the total package.
In 2021 Ford announced an all-new, all-electric addition to its lineup: the Ford Mustang Mach-E. This would be the first new addition to the Mustang name in over 50 years and was an electric SUV, the likes of which we have never seen before. For 2022, the Mach-E is back and has proven what it means to have the Mustang name. The Mustang Mach-E is a true work of art thanks to a sleek design, fixed glass roof, and a gorgeous 15-inch infotainment touchscreen display.
With an available extended range battery, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E can get up to 314 miles of range on a full charge. And using a DC fast charger, it will be able to recharge up to 47 miles of range in just ten minutes. That is a tremendous level of versatility and a great range for an electric SUV. Other builds of the Mach-E get anywhere between 224 miles of range for the base model up to the full 314 miles in the California Route 1 with rear-wheel drive, making this a model that will get you wherever you need to go.
The Ford Edge is something special in the lineup of Ford SUVs: it was the first SUV worked on by the Ford Performance Team. This means you get all the style and functionality of an SUV with the power and muscle you would expect from Ford Performance. What are we talking about exactly? Instead of the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with its 250 hp, you can opt for a 2.7L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 that gives you 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque for a truly exhilarating driving experience. The Edge ST trim also features a Sport mode that makes driving the Edge even more exciting.
Opting for the 2.0L engine will help you save at the pump as you can get estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway. Like the EcoSport and the Escape, the 2022 Ford Edge has seating for up to five people with plenty of room for the whole family. But good fuel economy and roomy seating are not all that the Edge has to offer. You will also get the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite which includes an available lane-keeping system, a blind spot information system, and pre-collision assist. The 2022 Ford Edge has five different trims available, ranging from the SE to the ST.
Next up, we have the Ford Explorer. This is a larger Ford SUV with seating for up to seven people and nearly 88 cu.ft. of interior cargo space. With all three rows of seats in place, the available cargo space is 18.2 cu.ft. but it can be expanded by putting the second and third row of seats down. That means you can really pack this beauty full of pretty much everything you need for a long road trip or a weekend of camping.
A terrain management system and intelligent four-wheel drive make this SUV a great option for getting away from it all, plus the Explorer has a towing capacity of up to 5,600 lbs when properly equipped. If serious performance is what you are after, then the ST trim should catch your eye thanks to a 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine that offers 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. All 2022 Ford Explorers come with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
If you are looking for a way to get your family around comfortably but want to save a bit at the pump, the Explorer is the vehicle for you. In addition to the two EcoBoost engine options, this model can be equipped with a 3.3L V6 hybrid powertrain that can get 27 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway. However, even the base 2.3L EcoBoost engine is already quite efficient at 21 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
Finally, there is the 2022 Ford Expedition, a gorgeous full-size model for those that need an SUV for a large family. The Expedition has seating for up to eight people and offers plenty of cargo space. With all the seats in their upright position, the regular Expedition will have 20.9 cu.ft. of cargo space available. Put all of those seats down, and you will have 104.6 cu.ft. of room for your belongings. If you need more space than that, the extended-length Expedition MAX has 36 cu.ft. of cargo space available when all the seats are upright and 121.5 cu.ft. when the rear seats are folded down.
When properly equipped, the Expedition has a towing capacity of up to 9,300 lbs, delivering the performance you would usually see with a full-size pickup. If you are in the mood for comfort, the legendary King Ranch trim makes its return in 2022 on the Expedition, delivering an experience unlike any other thanks to Del Rio leather seating, a 15.5-inch infotainment display, and a mind-blowing 22-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

For a lot of people, the thought of having to figure out financing for a vehicle can be one of the biggest sources of stress and anxiety when shopping for a car. Here at DePaula Ford, however, we are ready to assist you with everything you need and take the worry out of the financing process. Even if you already have a good financing offer lined up, we can help you explore all of your options to ensure you have the best solution possible.

While leasing a Ford might not be the right option for everyone, it is a great choice if you want to enjoy everything a new Ford vehicle has to offer without making a long-term commitment. The precise terms and conditions of your lease will depend on what you are looking for, but the essentials typically remain the same. With a lease, you enjoy a brand-new vehicle, and you are only paying for the depreciation that occurs as you use the vehicle. This means you pay a lot less overall, resulting in lower monthly payments than someone who buys that same new vehicle.
Once you lease a new Ford SUV, you are free to enjoy it and take full advantage of everything it has to offer throughout the duration of your agreement. A lease typically has a yearly limit on how many miles you can put on it, but you have options to choose the mileage limit that works best for you. All you have to do is take proper care of your Ford SUV, including following the service schedule for it, and you get to enjoy the impressive performance and features of a new model without committing to owning it for many years.
As your lease agreement comes to an end, we will help you schedule a time for an inspection to ensure the vehicle is in good shape and see if anything needs to be addressed before returning it. Once your lease ends, you simply bring your Ford back to us for a final inspection, and you are free to move on in whatever way you see fit. You can walk away or choose another vehicle to buy or lease; many people go from one lease to the next, paying a low amount each month to enjoy a brand-new SUV every few years. If you prefer to own your vehicle, then a lease is probably not right for you, but it is a fantastic way to get the most from a new Ford and try out new features on a regular basis.
To us, our time with you is not simply a way to make a sale and move on; we want to build a long-lasting relationship with you. We are committed to ensuring you get the best experience possible here at DePaula Ford. We know that our customers are our friends and neighbors from the Albany area, and we treat you as we would want to be treated. We love the Capital District, and we are committed to making sure you have a great place to shop for a Ford SUV.
Plus, with our Ford service center and parts department, we can support you and your vehicle for years to come. You will always know where to turn if you have any issues with your SUV. It does not matter if you need routine service and maintenance, have a serious issue due to a collision, or simply have questions about your Ford SUV that you cannot find an answer to. We are here to help.
We also offer factory parts, so you know that any work we do will ensure that the reliability of your Ford SUV endures. And if you want to do the work yourself, then we are happy to help you order just the right part you need.
