I needed multiple parts for my Ford, and Greg (in the parts' dept) handled my phone order in less than 10 minutes. He was very knowledgeable about confirming the exact part numbers I needed, and verifying the parts to match my vehicle. The parts were delivered faster than expected, and when I arrived to pick them up, Greg even helped load the heavy items into my truck! Great service by Greg, and the parts dept. here. Highly recommended.

I had occasion recently to bring my 2011 Edge into Rock River Ford for service. I needed the Radiator flushed. I know that the Edge with the 3.5 Duratec Engine calls for a particular Coolant. I asked Darrell about that. He said (Just a minute Dave,Lets talk to parts) He got the answer and explained to me why the Dark Green coolant is important for the complete health of the motor and especially the water pump. I asked him if he would have the mechanic give the whole underneath of my car a look over while it was on the hoist. That was done and the mechanic not only assured me that I the car was GOOD. I did need a left ball joint. I had that done the next day. The Mechanic not only told me the importance of using the dark green coolant but he gave me a bottle half full of it for my convenience Just in case in needed some later I was completely happy with the attention I got from Darrell and also his mechanic. I wish I had his name because he was great..

Finding the right compact sedan for you may seem like a difficult task, but here at Rock River Block, we have just the one for you. Can you guess which one we’re speaking of? That’s correct — the 2018 Kia Forte. From the mechanical capabilities that get this vehicle moving to the interior amenities and exterior design, you’ll want to become a proud owner as soon as possible. Stop by our dealership during our business hours to get a glimpse for yourself!

Mechanical Capabilities

Lying beneath the sheet metal of the Forte is the standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with Atkinson Cycle that generates a lively 147-hp and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, getting you back and forth from work swiftly. While the 6-speed manual transmission comes standard, the available electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® will switch gears effortlessly for a smooth drive down Route 20. Whether you’re zooming down a rough gravel road or one with potholes, the available sport-tuned suspension allows you to glide over them with ease, proving that this compact sedan is the total package!

Interior Amenities

When you opt for available Apple CarPlay™1 and Android Auto™2 inside of the 2018 Kia Forte, you’ll have access to your favorite applications, phonebook, music playlists, and more on your smartphone, all hands-free, so you can keep your focus on the open road ahead! If you want to add a touch of luxury to the interior of this compact sedan, then the available leather-seat trim is the perfect feature for you. In addition to that, the 6-way adjustable driver’s seat come standard, but if you really want to get comfortable, the available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support aids in your finding your optimal position, preventing you from acquiring new aches and pains later on.

Exterior Design

Last, but definitely not least, the exterior of this vehicle will leave everyone in awe as you cruise into town for your shopping spree. The LED rear combination lamps come standard on the EX trim and will illuminate other drivers, while helping you see and be seen at night. The available 17-inch alloy wheels prove that they’re large and in charge, while giving the outside of the Forte a sophisticated, sleek appearance. When you want to feel the wind through your hair and the sun on your face on those beautiful summer days, the available power sunroof will satisfy you.

What are you waiting for? You can test drive the 2018 Kia Forte for sale in Rockford, IL, here at Rock River Block today!
