It’s a sacrifice of economy - with engines siphoning gasoline, demanding more and more resources with every mile. To accommodate those heavy-duty payloads, they require sustenance; and drivers are forced to bear the burden of costly pump visits.

Ford thinks this unfair - which is why it’s bolstering the efficiency of its 2018 F-150 XLT!




According to The Drive, the F-Series is receiving an economy upgrade. The 2018 F-150 XLT - which features a 5.0L V8 engine - will now offer improved performance, with its economy rating rising to 19 (City) and 23 (Highway). This represents a 2 MPG increase, which could translate to hundreds of dollars saved every year.

Impressed?

Ford recognizes that pick-up drivers are too often forced to endure budget-busting miles. The 2018 F-150 XLT should, however, help to ease the burden. This truck will pair direct-injection technology with a new 10-speed automatic transmission to ensure precise fuel distribution. The V8 will be optimized.

It will also deliver power. The Drive notes that - despite the increase in efficiency - the new XLT will still provide robust performance, yielding 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. This truly is a perfect platform.

Performance is no longer defined by a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Instead Ford is fusing its beloved F-Series with a comprehensive suite of powertrain options - allowing drivers to tailor every mile to their specific needs. The 2018 F-150 promises best-in-class adaptability.


According to Equipment World, Ford will soon provide drivers with the flexibility they crave. The 2018 F-150 will boast a wide selection of available features, offering access to premium power. Among the most notable options are:

Engine Choices: the new F-150 will offer a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6, a 2.7L EcoBoost V6, a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8, a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, and a 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel. These motors will allow it to accommodate all heavy-duty demands with ease.

Bed Technologies: for 2018, Ford will provide drivers with LED work-lights, an integrated tailgate step, stowable loading ramps, and a BoxLink cargo system. Take advantage of these features to improve payload capabilities and ensure more efficient storage.

Wheel Sizes: the F-Series will now offer wheels ranging from 17-inches to 22-inches. Drivers can decide which best suits their needs.

Through these enhancements - along with the now standardized Auto Start-Stop system - the 2018 F-150 should prove a powerhouse on the highway and the back-roads alike. To learn more about this pick-up contact us today.

With high-style comes an expectation of sedans - chic little cars defined by chic little lines. They’re sophisticated; they’re precise; and they’re thoroughly ill-suited for the world of back-road adventures.

In its quest to change the market, Ford is shattering this tradition - connecting drivers to the performance they need and the design they’ve too often been denied. The 2018 F-150 is coming.

According to Maxim, Ford will soon premiere its latest F-Series model. The 2018 F-150 (scheduled for a fall arrival) will serve as both workhorse and showcase, delivering a bold new look that will impress every driver. Among the fascia changes will be:

Billet-Milled Fenders.

A Twin-Bar Grille.

C-Shaped LED Headlamps.

A Curved Hood.

Chrome Detailing.

Each of these elements was carefully chosen to emphasize the 2018 F-150’s newly extended frame - with Ford highlighting the widened body and elongated front fenders. The effect is undeniably power and will surely catch the eye of every pick-up fan.

It already has our full attention!

No official specs for the 2018 F-150 have yet been revealed - but critics anticipate that Ford will pair its fresh look with a 5.0L V8 and a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The new year has just begun - but Ford is already planning for 2018, prepping its beloved F-150 for a mid-cycle refresh. North American drivers will soon receive a series of pick-up upgrades, allowing them to greet every challenge with a V6 growl.


According to The Drive, the 2018 F-150 will be subtly transformed - with Ford tweaking both the chassis and powertrain to improve overall performance and economy. High-strength aluminum-alloy will be better utilized, defining an estimated 70% of the paneling and reducing platform weight by more than 500 pounds. A new 10-speed automatic transmission will ensure responsive handling, while the standardized 3.5L engine will feature EcoBoost technology. When combined, these elements will ensure both 375 HP and more than 30 MPGs on the highway!

The 2018 F-150 promises to propel the pick-up market to new heights - adapting to both commercial and all-terrain needs with greater ease. As The Drive notes, the truck will also boast a 240-amp alternator, allowing it to accommodate high-power systems (such as UTV winches or flood lights). There will be no challenge to great for Ford.

The possibilities are exciting. With the impending release of the 2018 F-150, Ford is promising diesel power - fusing its beloved pick-up with a more economical engine and improved MPG capabilities. It’s redefining the half-ton market.

As Torque News explains, however, no official specs for this diesel upgrade have been given, leaving many critics to speculate on the potential powertrain options. Ford has announced that this engine will share similarities to ones currently available in North America, and this has revved up comparisons across every social feed.

Among the most popular of these comparisons are:


The Ram 1500 - should Ford seek to compete directly with the Ram 1500, its new F-150 will have to generate (at least) 240 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. This will require advanced PowerStroke technology, along with EcoBoost efficiency. A V6 is expected.

The Range Rover - Ford has already built a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine for the Ranger Rover, and many suspect it will apply this to its F-150 (creating 254 HP and 443 lb.-ft of torque).

Should either of these predictions prove correct, the 2018 F-150 will yield best-in-class performance - ensuring increased economy and strong horsepower. It will transform the North American market through smart diesel driving.

Shadows surround you. The day has ended; the night has come; and the road is long and winding, with only your headlights to penetrate the blackness. You can’t see.... anything, and this will be a frightening drive home.

Ford understands that fear - with its recent poll noting that between 81% to 87% of consumers feel anxious in the dark. Both men and women experience high levels of stress when traveling in the evening, and they often find themselves hesitating to Go Further when the journey will demand more than an afternoon. 

This must change - which is why we’re pleased to announce that Ford will soon offer night-vision capabilities for its 2018 F-150.



According to Torque News, the popular pick-up will receive a new radar system, blending frontal and rear sensors for precise detection. Real-time camera feeds will monitor all surrounding angles, immediately alerting drivers to the approach of pedestrians, vehicles, and more. A series of chimes, along with flashing dashboard icons, will serve as warnings to stop; and, should this fail, an automatic braking function will be deployed to avoid collisions.

Through this, the 2018 F-150 will provide greater nighttime protection. Drivers will be able to both identify and assess obstacles; and creating more efficient routes will prove far easier. The dark will no longer be a concern.

2018 ford f150 for sale saskatchewan canadaWith the announcement of the 2018 F-150 came a series of exclamations - all bemused, amused, and more than a little surprised. The beloved F-Series platform would boast a PowerStroke engine, delivering diesel efficiency and enhanced MPG ratios. Pick-up fans were (understandably) delighted.

For those craving a more traditional powertrain, however, this shift to diesel proved unwelcome. They wanted the familiar rumble of a V8 and they worried that the new F-150 would no longer yield the necessary growl.

Fear not, F-Series devotees! Ford is still offering a variety of non-alternative options to consider - with Total Landscape Care recently revealing three available engines:


The V6: A 3.3L V6 engine will anchor the F-150, serving as the entry-level option and generating an estimated 282 HP and 253 lb.-ft of torque. This will accommodate all light-duty tasks with ease.

The V8: those in need of all-terrain performance will find value in the 5.0L Coyote V8. While no official specs have been released, this powertrain should prove comparable to the 2017 model and offer (at least) 385 HP.

The EcoBoost: to ensure everyday economy, Ford is also providing a 2.7L EcoBoost engine. This will bolster MPG ratings through advanced direct-injection technology.

While the 2018 F-150 may now feature PowerStroke capabilities, no driver will suffer a compromise of traditional F-Series performance. Find the perfect engine for every need!

The road proves long - a stretch of dust and unfamiliar turns. You follow it cautiously, uncertain of what the miles will bring. The daylight is fading; the horizon is turning bleak; and you’ve hours left before you’ll sleep. Hesitation now defines you.

With the release of its 2018 F-150, Ford seeks to eliminate that hesitation. The beloved F-Series variant will now offer a suite of advanced safety features, allowing drivers to quickly adapt to even the rockiest terrains.



According to Gotta Be Mobile, the 2018 F-150 will be an ideal companion for those late-night adventures. Pre-collision assistance technology (along with pedestrian detection capabilities) will allow for continuous scanning, assessing the road for any potential impediments. Available 360-degree cameras will provide high-definition imagery of the surrounding area, ensuring seamless parking and trailering; while integrated blind spot monitoring will offer real-time alerts.

This - when paired with lane-keeping assistance, trailer radar sensors, and SYNC 3 notifications - will provide drivers with the security they need. The 2018 F-150 will instantly identify concerns and offer precise responses, keeping all passengers safe on the highway or the back-roads. No path will prove a challenge.

The 2018 F-150 will arrive in the fall. To learn more about this and other F-Series vehicles contact the Novlan team today.

Rumors define the automotive market - little wisps of conversation, half-formed speculations. Drivers leap from one conclusion to another, leaving wide trails of shaky truths in their wake; and it often proves impossible to decipher fact from feverish fiction.

Ford recently offered a guarantee for the future, however - confirming the arrival of a diesel F-150.



According to Fox News, Ford plans to release a diesel F-150. This will mark a momentous milestone for the brand, with the F-Series never before featuring a gasoline alternative. Public demand for more efficient pick-up responses, however, has created a need for non-traditional power; and this 3.0L engine will maximize every mile, pairing direct-injection technology with automatic start-stop capabilities.

Through this, the 2018 F-150 will ensure superior economy. Ford assures drivers, though, that this diesel transition won’t demand a sacrifice of performance. A best-in-class tow rating of 12,200 pounds has been announced - ensuring that every heavy-duty demand can be easily accommodated.

No official release date has been offered for the 2018 F-150. Critics anticipate a late fall arrival, however, and production should begin soon.

For more than three decades, the F-Series has dominated North America’s sales charts. With the arrival of the new F-150, we expect this tradition to continue.
