2019 Ford F-250 Pick-up Truck


As it has been for many years, the Ford F Series truck remains the top selling pick-up truck in the country. After a complete re-design in 2017, Ford has added many new options to keep the series fresh for 2019. This series is a staff favorite at Consumer Reports for good reason.

With an all-aluminum alloy body and a frame consisting of mostly steel, the 2019 F-250 remains strong and lighter weight than previous years.  The F-250 boasts four best in class ratings including: GCWR (gross combination weight rating), best in class payload, best in class conventional towing, and best in class gooseneck towing.

Two engine packages are available in the 2019 version of the F-250. The first is a gas powered 6.6L flex fuel V8. This engine produces 430lb-ft of torque. Couple this with a Ford TorqShift G 6-speed transmission, and you will not want for towing or hauling capabilities. The next power option comes in the form of a 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel. This engine produces another best in class output with 450hp and an amazing 935lb-ft of torque. You can literally pull the world with this truck. Ford also offers their FX4 off-road package for added traction.

Power is not all a modern truck needs to be. Comfort, technology, and the most modern safety features can be found in the F-250. Here are just a few of the creature comforts this truck has to offer:
  •         Rear View Camera - Tailgate Mounted
  •        Steering Wheel - Audio Controls
  •        Tilt/Telescoping Steering Wheel
  •        Trailer Reverse Guidance
  •        BLIS® (Blind Spot Monitoring System)  Cross-Traffic Alert & Trailer Tow
  •        Rearview Mirror - Electrochromic Self Dimming


A variety of seating configurations are available in a variety of materials with optional 8-way lumbar support. Front heated seats are a nice added touch as well.

Premium sound systems and navigation are 2 very popular features not found on trucks that long ago. Once inside the F-250, the feel is more like a luxury car than a powerful truck.

When you combine all the power, technology, and comfort options Ford has offered up with the 2019 F-250, the choices are vast. The best way to experience all it has to offer is to make the short drive to the Olympia Auto Mall and get behind the wheel to take a test drive. The good folks at Mullinax Ford will be happy to help you choose the best version for your towing, hauling, and driving requirements. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Used Trucks at The Olympia Auto Mall











When you find yourself in the market for a used truck, consider the Olympia Auto Mall. You can save time driving all around town by searching for your used truck in one convenient location.

Trucks have evolved from a work only vehicle to well appointed “family vehicles” that feature 4 doors and comfortable seating for up to six.

There are many factors that enter the decision-making process when deciding which type of truck is right for your requirements and lifestyle. Ask yourself questions like:

  1. Will I be towing a trailer?
  2. How much hauling capacity will I need?
  3. Is fuel mileage a concern?
  4. Do I need 4-wheel drive?
  5. Two doors or four?
  6. Gas or diesel?
  7. How long do I plan on keeping this truck?
  8. What was the truck I’m looking at previously used for?

Considering all these questions can help narrow your search and make sure you choose just the right truck that will satisfy all your requirements.


The Olympia Auto Mall is proud to have 9 dealers including South Sound Trucks that would be happy to find the right used truck for you regardless if it going to be used to haul construction materials and towing equipment to toting the family on a camping trip.

2019 Subaru Ascent


Subaru has made a return to the 3-row seat SUV market by introducing the all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent. The Ascent offers a simple, functional, and practical approach that is well suited for families looking for convenience in a well-appointed vehicle.

In a market dominated by 6-cylinder engines, the Ascent offers an amply powered 260-hp, 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a continuously variable transmission. The Ascent Base and Premium are EPA-rated at 23 mpg overall, and the more lavishly equipped, heavier Limited and Touring are rated at 22 mpg overall.

The Base model can tow 2,000 pounds, and the other trim levels can pull up to 5,000 pounds.

Typical for a Subaru, the Ascent is all-wheel drive, and offers enough ground clearance to head out for some minor off-roading excursions. Assisting when off-road is hill-descent mode which helps downhill control, and X-Mode to boost traction.

Once inside the Ascent, you will see nicely appointed trim and styling. The Ascent Base comes with a second-row bench seat, but all other trims offer a no-cost choice of bench or captain’s chairs. There’s plenty of legroom. The controls for adjusting rear climate settings are simple and convenient. There are USB ports for plugging in chargers, and even a 110-volt outlet. A panoramic moonroof is available on the Premium and Limited, and it comes standard on the Touring.

The foldaway third row is slightly elevated, creating theater-style seating. Third-row space is limited (common to the segment), but it can be useful for tweens and teens in a pinch. Passengers will find that the grab handles mounted on top of the second-row captain’s chairs make getting out of the third row easier.


Safety


The Ascent is loaded with many modern safety features like:

  • Forward-collision warning
  •  Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Blind spot warning
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Rear automatic braking

Technology


Combined with the performance and safety features, is some very cool technology. WiFi that can support up to eight devices can keep all your passengers happy on long trips. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are 2 more cool options that allow you to play all your favorite music. A navigation system that features over the air updates to make sure your maps are always current.

We invite you to the Olympia Auto Mall to test drive the newest offering from Subaru…The 2019 Ascent is the largest SUV (larger than the Toyota Highlander) the manufacturer has produced and is a winner right out of the gate. We look forward to seeing you soon.

2018 Volkswagen Passat


With seven different trim packages available, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat has something for anyone in the market for a smooth and powerful mid-sized sedan.  Starting with the base S model to the sporty and sleek V6 GT with 280 hp the Passat offers models and options that can fit a wide range of driving needs and lifestyles.

The smooth and responsive 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the 2017 model provided readily available power and achieved 28 mpg overall -- very commendable for such a large sedan. It has been replaced by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder for 2018. The six-speed automatic transmission couples well with this engine package. Buyers willing to sacrifice fuel economy for speed can go for the 3.6-liter V6; acceleration is swift, and it returns 23 mpg.

On the road, the Passat feels solid and satisfying, with agile handling, a comfortable ride, and a very quiet cabin. Inside, drivers will find plenty of space, simple controls, good outward visibility, and a comfortable driving position. The seats are large and supportive, even over the long haul. Rear-seat and trunk room are supremely generous, equaling some large sedans. And the Passat's upright stance provides easy cabin access and a good view out.

Technology and safety is evident in the Passat with innovative options like:
  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • MirrorLink®
  • Rear View Camera System
  •  Blind Spot Monitor
  • VW Car-Net®

We invite you to the Olympia Auto Mall to see and drive the 2018 Passat at Volkswagen of Olympia. Their qualified staff is ready to answer any questions you have and help you decide which model is best for you.
