Sure, you probably already know that the Kia’s Forte Sedan is a great compact sedan that is known for its reliability and reputation for being a good value at a low price.

Volkswagen estimates that the new engine will improve fuel economy by 15 percent over the outgoing 2.0L engine, while also improving power by 35 hp.
With its enhanced Sync 3 infotainment capabilities and more fuel efficient engine, the new F-150 is the epitome of a truck lover’s dream.
