In the battle of half-ton horsepower there can be only one champion. Automotive brands meet in a whirl of chrome and smoke, trying to eke out the slightest percentage of supremacy; and trucks wage war on the track, delivering pedal-to-the-metal performance.

They all should’ve stayed home.



As the NY Daily News explains, only one pick-up proves a true powerhouse - and that’s the 2018 F-150. This Ford monster effortlessly dominates the competition, with its standard 3.3L V6 yielding 290 HP and 265 lb.-ft of torque. A robust six-speed automatic transmission provides custom drive-modes (Normal, Tow/Haul, and Sport) to optimize the performance-band on every terrain; while twin independent cam timing technology optimizes both air intake and fuel distribution, opening and closing valves as needed to maintain ideal engine responses.

Through this, the 2018 F-150 delivers a staggering 13,200 pounds of conventional trailering and a payload capacity of 3,720 pounds. No other competitor comes close:


2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1550
Towing: 12,500 pounds.
Payloads: 2,250 pounds.

2019 Dodge RAM 1500
Towing: 12,750 pounds.
Payloads: 2,300 pounds.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500
Towing: 12,500 pounds.
Payloads: 2,250 pounds.

The F-150 reigns as the definitive pick-up champion - and we expect this to continue for many years to come. To learn more about this truck’s performance capabilities contact us today!
It’s a battle for the ages. The 2018 F-150 and the 2018 RAM 1500 meet on an open field - each revving in anticipation, exhaust spilling into the air. They’re ready to secure the pick-up crown; and they’ll battle each other for sales domination. Their grilles glint in the sun and then… they’re off!

We already know what the outcome will be.



As Kelley Blue Book explains, the 2018 F-150 is the ultimate pick-up. Despite a valiant effort from Dodge, Ford’s top-selling platform proved unstoppable in a head-to-head competition - delivering enhanced performance with every rev. Its 2.7L turbocharged V6 yielded 325 HP (at 5,000 RPM) and 400 lb.-ft of torque (at 2,750 RPM). A 10-speed automatic transmission smoothly adjusted to both changing terrains and class-leading payloads, accommodating up to 13,200 pounds of conventional trailering; and its massive frame (243.7-inches long, 79.9-inches wide, and 75.6-inches high) promised durable responses on even the roughest roads, blending high-strength steel panels with aluminum-alloy accents.

The 2018 RAM 1500 never stood a chance. When compared to the F-150 by the KBB team, it fell short of every mark:


Horsepower: 305 (at 6,400 RPM).
Torque: 269 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,175 RPM).
Towing: 10,640 pounds.

Ford is the clear winner in the half-ton race - and we know our customers will rely on it for every summer adventure.

The end of May has come - and the automotive market is greeting it with a celebration. The start of this month proved poor, with a fire ripping through Ford factories and damaging countless F-150 models. Lariats and Limiteds alike were reduced to ash; and many feared that the Big Blue Oval wouldn’t be able to recover from such a loss. Its inventory had been gutted.

Never underestimate the power of the F-Series, however - because Ford has just announced that it’s ready to resume production on the F-150!

 


According to CNN, Ford is already revving up its assembly lines. Despite mere weeks passing since the terrible fire struck its Michigan and Missouri plants (the two largest in North America), the brand is accelerating its production schedule - bringing 19 new dies in to accommodate the demand. Its engineers and clean-up crews have worked in seamless tandem to sweep away the debris, and the result is state-of-the-art capability.

This, CNN explains, should prove crucial to critics - all who feared that an F-Series shortage was imminent. It was reported that Ford had a mere 84 days of F-150s in stock, and a sales loss seemed impossible to avoid. With the expedited repairs of its production plants, however, this fate has been thwarted… and drivers across North America are cheering.

We don’t blame them. The 2018 F-150 reigns as the best-selling vehicle in Canada and the United States - yielding exceptional power (up to 450 HP), strong economy (up to 26 MPGs on the highway), and impressive payloads (up to 2,311 pounds). Its long cab (which measures between 66-inches to 96-inches) accommodates every haul with ease; and its available 10-speed automatic transmission provides nimble handling on every backroad.

With economy often comes a sacrifice of power. Drivers find themselves saving money but losing traction - and trying to conquer the backroads becomes an impossibility.

The 2018 F-150 Diesel will change this.



According to Kelley Blue Book, the new F-150 demands no compromises. Despite its efficient engine (a 3.0L PowerStroke V6, which yields 16 MPGs in the city and 22 MPGs on the highway), this truck proves perfect for all-terrain adventures. It boasts a fully boxed frame, which ensures a stable ride; while the suspension pairs two-stage variable rate leaf springs with coil support. Rack-and-pinion steering delivers precise responses; while the two-speed automatic four-wheel-drive system automatically engages as needed, utilizing transfer case technology to assess inclines, lane alignments, and trajectory. This creates a smooth burst of traction when the roads turn rough.

To further enhance performance, the 2018 F-150 Diesel also features an optional electronic rear differential - which helps to provide balance while cornering. It counters the chance of sudden rolls, adjusting the truck’s performance-band to create a fluid ride.

No mile will ever prove challenging again.

It was no easy feat - with the 2018 F-150 forced to endure a grueling series of tasks, pitting itself against the environment and other half-ton platforms. Its performance ratios were tested; its trailering capabilities were pushed to the limits; and… it secured an undisputed victory.

The NY Daily News has just declared the 2018 F-150 to be the Best Pick-Up Truck in North America!



The NY team recently sought to discover the most powerful platform in North America. To do this, it created an all-terrain course that would test the capabilities of every major model. Ford’s beloved pick-up (naturally) revved to a first-place finish.

Anchored by a standard 3.3L V6, this truck delivers 290 HP. Its lightweight aluminum design ensures seamless handling, maximizing the available 10-speed automatic transmission and decreasing engine strain (fuel can more easily circulate, generating 18 MPGs in the city and 23 MPGs on the highway). An AWD yields deft responses on even the rockiest roads, while a reinforced steel underbody accommodates every payload. When properly equipped, this model promises up to 3,720-pounds of cargo-box hauling.

Compromise proves a thing of the past.

The 2018 F-150 has just been named the Best Truck on the market - and we know that the only one to usurp this title will be its 2019 successor.

With the release of the 2018 F-150 Platinum, Ford makes a promise of power to Alberta drivers - offering them V8 performance and staggering trailering capabilities. This is no ordinary pick-up. It’s instead an all-wheel workhorse that can adapt to any payload with ease.


Slide into the 2018 Platinum and experience a rush of ferocity. This platform will send you sailing down every road, with its 5.0L engine yielding 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Direct-injection technology utilizes high-pressure valves to improve fuel usage, while Ti-VCT functionality promotes steady bursts of power. A 10-speed automatic transmission boasts Tow/Haul mode capabilities, promising crisp gear shifts with every load; while rack-and-pinion steering connects to an available 4x4 drivetrain. This combines a two-stage rear suspension with a strut-front to ensure smooth handling.

The 2018 F-150 Platinum is a beast on the backroads - delivering up to 11,100 pounds of towing when properly equipped. Integrated trailer sway control technology provides a stable ride, accommodating heavy weights through careful traction distribution; while the hill descent feature automatically engages the disc brakes to ensure precise responses on inclines (payloads will no longer compromise performance).

Ford believes that power isn’t a luxury. It’s instead a right - and this is why the new Platinum proves a welcome addition to the Alberta market. To learn more contact us today.
2018 has just begun - but last year’s sales charts still hang on Ford’s wall, reminding of record-breaking quarters and unprecedented profits. The Big Blue Oval has finally revealed its total tallies for 2017, and they’ve left the critics stunned.

According to Seeking Alpha, Ford dominated in 2017. In every vertical - crossovers, sedans, and pick-ups - it saw tremendous growth; and its total profits soared to $7.6 billion! No other competitor managed such staggering results, with losses seen across the automotive board (Toyota, General Motors, and Chevrolet had their numbers stumble).

What caused such a strong consumer response? Ford credits its 2018 F-150. This pick-up led the brand to an astonishing 9.3% year-to-year increase - with total sales jumping to 896,746 units. Drivers were drawn to its Ti-VCT V6 engine and new 10-speed automatic transmission, as well as its best-in-class trailering capability (up to 8,000 pounds). This platform thrilled across Canada, delivering Intelligent AWD to every mile.

It’s no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 F-150 reigned as last year’s top-selling vehicle - with its success propelling Ford to segment-leading profits. We can only imagine what this platform (along with the upcoming 2019 version) will achieve in the months to come.

In the wake of Ford’s diesel announcements - with the Big Blue Oval fusing its F-150 with PowerStroke performance and best-in-class economy - drivers may find themselves overjoyed by the promise of fuel pump savings. No longer will they have to throw their precious dollars away. Efficiency is instead guaranteed.

For those in need of pure performance, however, the Novlan team knows that a diesel engine won’t be enough. Instead SuperCrew capability is needed; and the 2018 F-150 promises segment-shattering power.



According to STL Today, the 2018 F-150 SuperCrew proves essential for drivers searching for long-haul abilities. Anchored by a 5.0L V8, this platform can achieve 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Its 10-speed automatic transmission smoothly responds to changing inclines, while its 4WD transfer case technology allows it to adapt to every mile through exclusive drive-mode functions: Normal, Snow/Wet, Tow/Haul, Eco, Sport, and Manual. When these options engage, they enable to truck to roll through every obstacle with ease - automatically adjusting traction and stability ratios to improve handling.

To further impress, the 2018 SuperCrew also boasts up to 13,200 pounds of conventional trailering - allowing drivers to accommodate commercial and off-road hauls alike!

Diesel value may dominate the news - but the 2018 F-150 SuperCrew will prove a viable contender for those in search of premium power. To learn more about this platform contact us today.

The future of performance has arrived - with Ford unveiling its 2018 F-150 Diesel. This half-ton option will redefine efficiency, delivering PowerStroke capability to North America. No longer will pick-up devotees suffer frequent station stops. Instead they’ll finally be able to indulge in the savings of their sedan-driving counterparts, achieving an estimated 30 MPGs on the highway.

We’ll give you a moment to collect your jaw from the floor.

As a recent Forbes article explains, the 2018 F-150 Diesel will be a segment-leading beast. Anchored by a 3.0L V6, this F-Series model promises superior responses - blending a lightweight graphite iron design with a durable forged steel crank. These elements maximize the performance of the engine, allowing it to sustain steady bursts of power. Direct-injection technology (ranked at 29,000 PSI) ensures optimal fuel levels; while a supplemental filter promotes quality control. A high-efficiency turbocharger completes the effect, creating a full-throttle experience with every rev.

When these technologies combine, they allow the 2018 F-150 to dominate at the pump and on the highway. Complementing the best-in-class MPG ratio is staggering performance - with the PowerStroke engine achieving 250 HP and 440 lb.-ft of torque. Sacrifice is a thing of the past.

Economy is an unfamiliar concept within the pick-up world. Massive engines demand equally massive amounts of fuel - with their cavernous blocks unable to sustain even the smallest measure of power without a full-tank. This forces drivers to divide their hours between watching the gauge needle and searching for stations.

The release of the 2018 F-150 Diesel should change that.



According to US News, Ford will soon unveil its 2018 Diesel - and this platform is primed to redefine the market. Boasting a 3.0L PowerStroke engine, the F-150 will achieve an estimated 22 MPGs in the city and 28 MPGs on the highway (we do note that these numbers have not yet been confirmed but are instead generated by comparisons of the Range Rover, which shares a similar chassis build). A rear-wheel-drive will effortlessly adapt to changing inclines, promoting precise torque distribution; while the new 10-speed automatic transmission will eliminate gear strain and ensure a more fluid ride.

Through this, the F-150 will deliver a seamless driving experience - sparing North American consumers those frequent station visits.

No official release date has been given for the 2018 Diesel. Critics anticipate an early spring arrival, however, and believe that Ford will soon enter its production phase.
