ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaThe venerable F-Series has consistently delivers power, performance, and prestige. With the launch of the 2017 F-150, however, it will also deliver efficiency. A hybrid drivetrain is on the way!


According to Gas2 (a leading green-themed publication), the hybrid 2017 F-150 was recently spotted on the streets of Michigan. This pick-up - with its fascia obscured, leading to many speculations about a new grille and custom badging - promises improved economy, fusing the F-Series with a PHEV platform.

No official announcement has been made regarding the F-150’s mileage rate. Torque News reports, however, that the test-model shifted to its electric mode while traveling 35 miles-per-hour and the quiet engine response suggested diesel performance. This should improve upon the current generation’s 26 MPG (Highway).

With the release of a hybrid F-150, Ford is transforming the pick-up market. No longer will boisterous, fuel-guzzling trucks define urban areas. Economy should instead reign.

We can’t wait!

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaConsumers crave innovation - wanting to discover new ideas and exciting experiences, trying always to find proof of progress. They embrace a bigger, better, best philosophy; and they expect their favorite brands to so the same.

Ford recognizes the need for change, wanting to keep pace with driver demands. This is why it recently revealed a series of upgrades for its signature truck: the F-150 Lariat.

According to Auto Spies, Ford has redefined the 2016 F-150 Lariat with an exclusive Sport Package. This fuses the pick-up with a variety of style updates, including:


Red and Black Panel Piping.
Custom Badges.
20-Inch Dark Aluminum Wheels.
Smoked Headlamps.
Red Fabric Trims.
Red Grille Accents.
Alcantara Seat Inserts.
... and more!

Through these striking design options, Ford enhances the Lariat’s appeal - giving it a sporty look for 2016 and further showcasing its military-grade aluminum construction. Drivers can still trust in the truck’s performance, however. This F-150 variant boasts 325 HP and up to 7,850-pounds of towing, allowing it to seamlessly adapt to every road.

Some things shouldn't change, after all.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaIn 1975 Ford offered drivers a new experience - one of power, performance, and accelerated strength. The F-150 had arrived and with it came the promise of work-force domination, with the F-Series able to accommodate every towing and payload demand. This was the ultimate half-ton option.

Times haven’t changed that much.

With the release of the 2016 F-150, Ford proves its dedication to consumer needs - offering a series of high-performance innovations (such as EcoBoost technology, military-grade aluminum, an electronic locking rear differential, and the class-exclusive BoxLink). These elements combine for best-in-class towing and a more effective ride.

Every 2016 F-150 advancement, however, owes considerable thanks to the platforms that came before it - such as the 1986 F-150, which (as the Automoblog infograph shows) offered some premium power:


A 5.0L 302 V8 Engine.
A 4-Speed SelectShift Automatic Transmission.
185 HP
270 lb.-ft of Torque
A Twin Traction Suspension System.
A 1,500-pound Payload Capacity.
A 7,500-pound Towing Capacity.

The 1986 F-150 delivered exceptional performance - and it helped to develop the innovations that would later arrive. Ford took its own designs to the next level, bringing drivers the results they need.

ford f series dealer saskatchewan canadaIn 1948 Ford launched the F-Series - a line of half-ton powerhouses that delivered Flathead V8 performance, five-speed transmission, and integrated headlamps (design elements that, at the time, proved rare). These trucks were engineered for North America’s working-class.

They were also engineered for success.

According to CarBuzz, the F-Series is the most profitable automotive line - generating approximately 2,605 sales per day and earning Ford a staggering $13,000 per unit. When tallied for the week, these trucks provide the company with $237,055,000.

The numbers are staggering... and they showcase the F-Series’ popularity, with only the Toyota Corolla selling more individual models (though, CarBuzz is quick to note that these sales don’t generate half the value of the F-150, F-250, and more). North Americans purchase one of these trucks every 41.8 seconds. That ensures the greatest profit margin in automotive history.

We’re not surprised. The F-Series has proven itself through best-in-class towing, best-in-class payloads, and countless tech innovations. It’s the ultimate pick-up line.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaFew marques prove as iconic as the F-Series. Since 1948 this Ford line-up has delivered best-in-class value to drivers, combining V8 performance with enhanced payloads. It’s served as both a light-duty and heavy-duty platform, and its adaptability proves perfect for work or play.

It’s no surprise, therefore, that the F-Series has ranked as North America’s best-selling pick-up line for the past 34 years.

It’s also no surprise that 2016 will continue this milestone.

According to Nasdaq, the F-Series recently experienced strong sales - rising a staggering 10% in February and pushing the brand to the top of the charts. This counters traditional totals, with winter often limiting overall units. Fair weather and strong incentive programs, however, have allowed Ford to succeed.

Adding to this success is the brand’s SUV line (which includes the perpetually-popular Edge and Escape). These sales rose 28% during February, further emphasizing Ford’s appeal to Canada and the United States.

2016 seems destined to be a spectacular year.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaGood things do indeed come to those who wait. Never has this adage been more perfectly proven -  because the impending release of the Ford F-150 Raptor promises exceptional performance for drivers.

According to Torque News, Ford recently invested $145 million into its Raptor platform. The reason for this investment was an engine transformation, with the company redefining F-150 power. Instead of the traditional V8 behemoth, it chose to fuse the truck with a twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost.

This decision was originally met with much confusion. Critics assumed that drivers wouldn’t accept - or appreciate - a powertrain change. The V6 EcoBoost, however, has recently gained considerable favor with North Americans, helping to fuel most of the Ford line and delivering enhanced economy. Its precision makes it an obvious choice for off-roading.

Its performance will also impress. Though no official numbers have been released, many believe that the 2017 Raptor will generate (at least) 450 HP. This is a staggering upgrade from the V8’s previous 411 HP.

The Novlan team can admit that we’re excited - what about you?

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaFor more than three decades, the F-Series has dominated the North American charts - resonating with consumers and igniting strong sales. Critical claim, however, has occasionally proven scarce. The F-150 hasn't always connected with analysts and assessors.

That has finally changed.

According to The Motley Fool, the 2016 F-150 was recently named Best Truck by Consumer Reports. This is a special occasion, marking the first time in almost two decades since the magazine recognized Ford’s signature model (it always fell just short of expectations, losing to Dodge’s RAM and Chevrolet’s Silverado). After exceeding all benchmarks - including performance, reliability, and safety - the truck earned the top award.

It’s no surprise. The 2016 F-150 is Ford’s most advanced F-Series option. Through a series of upgrades - including military-grade aluminum, EcoBoost efficiency, and the Pro-Trailer Backup system (the first of its kind in the heavy-duty market) - the pick-up has garnered praise from critics across North America. Consumer Reports now adds to that collection.

We anticipate more to come throughout the year.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaIn the wake of the Volkswagen scandal - in which the company falsified diesel emission reports and deliberately misled consumers about the extent of their carbon footprints - trust seems impossible. Drivers stare warily at supposedly economical cars, wondering if they too will be revealed as frauds.

Ford wants to redefine public opinion. This is why it’s bringing a diesel platform to its beloved F-150... and rumors suggest that it will deliver incredible performance.

According to Green Car Reports, the diesel F-150 (which was recently spotted in Michigan) will offer a 3.0L V6 engine - comparable to the one used on the Ranger Rover Sport. More importantly, however, it will also feature a rear-wheel HFE drivetrain. This will enhance overall efficiency, generating more than 24 MPGs and promoting steadier accelerations. 

This would provide drivers with best-in-class economy, allowing them to enhance every mile. It would also help to restore confidence in the diesel engine - with the F-150 undoing the damage caused by Volkswagen.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canada2017 will be the year of efficiency. Recent rumors report the impending arrival of Ford’s next-generation F-150 - which will feature a diesel engine. News of this engineering change was originally met with considerable skepticism from critics. The consumer response to other economical pick-ups (such as Chrysler’s RAM) has, however, favorably turned the tide.

The release of exclusive spy footage should deliver an even greater reaction.

According to Yahoo, the 2017 F-150 diesel was spotted near the company’s Dearborn headquarters. Exclusive footage reveals the use of a 3.0L turbocharged V6 (which, should early estimates prove true, will provide 254 HP and 440 lb.-ft of torque). Keen-eyed consumers will recognize this engine as the one used for Land Rover’s dynamic Range line-up.

This footage offers more than a quick glimpse of the 2017 F-150, though. It instead promises economy, with critics already predicting a 30 MPG rating. Pair this with the F-Series' best-in-class payloads and the truck should rev to the top of the charts.

By fusing diesel performance with F-150 strength, Ford should (once again) redefine the market).
