ford f-150 hybrid for sale alberta canadaIt’s a history of electrification. Throughout the decades, Ford has reinvented its fleet - stripping away traditional engines and bolstering the chassis with battery packs and hybrid cells. All of its signature vehicles (including the Fusion, the Escape, the Expedition, and the Focus) have been defined by efficiency.

Will the F-150 soon join them?

Rumors have recently emerged that Ford is considering an all-electric pick-up - with the F-Series’ robust V8 replaced with lithium-ion energy. This news has been met with both acclaim and curiosity, with critics already debating potential specs. The Drive, however, urges caution for the future.... because there are no immediate plans to transform the F-150.

Upon recently examining the capabilities of its battery packs, Ford has determined that the F-150 should (for now) remain a V8 platform. Lithium performance is simply unable to adapt to the trailering demands of North America, and it can’t generate the same responses as the current 2017 version:


Horsepower: Up to 450.
Torque: Up to 510 lb.-ft.
Payloads: 2,329 pounds.
Towing: 10,500 pounds.

An electric platform - while more efficient - would prove ill-suited to the back-roads and would force drivers to compromise their hauling abilities. Until Ford can replicate the success of its 2017 F-150, it will not pursue an alternative engine.

We expect, however, that the high interest in a hybrid pick-up will spur new technological developments - and, hopefully, we’ll be spared a lengthy wait.

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 roads are too often treacherous - with unsteady inclines and shaky sand dunes leaving drivers unable to seek out the horizon. Their pick-ups simply can’t adapt to the ever-changing terrains.

With the release of the 2017 F-150 Raptor, Ford shatters this cycle - delivering a truck that’s been tailored for adventure.



According to New Atlas, the 2017 Raptor now boasts an ultra-high ground clearance (355.6-mm). Pairing large skid plates with a raised suspension, this pick-up can roll over every obstacle. A centralized differential ensures balanced handling, while the military-grade alloy frame has been strengthened. This allows the platform to push through the mud and the muck with ease.

To further delight off-roaders, the new Raptor also boasts a widened wheelbase - allowing it to accommodate 17-inch all-season tires and blaze through every challenge. This, when paired with the laser-measured mud flaps and rain guards, helps to defend against rocky conditions.

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.

March proved to be the month of the pick-up - with the Ford F-Series generating record-breaking sales across the United States and Canada. Bolstered by the strong consumer response to its 2017 F-150 (as well as renewed interest in its commercial vehicles, the F-250 and F-350), the brand secured its place at the top of the charts.


Despite sluggish numbers for its competitors, the F-Series delivered staggering sales last month - experiencing a 10.1% year-to-year increase. Ford earned 81,330 total units, making it the clear winner in the pick-up race:

Chevrolet Silverado: 42,410 total units, 11.6% year-to-year decline.
GM Sierra: 60,870 total units, 14.3% year-to-year decline.
Toyota Tundra: 9,358 total units, 6.4% year-to-year decline.
Nissan Titan: 5,539 total units, 335% year-to-year increase.

While Nissan saw strong gains, its 2017 Titan wasn’t enough to dethrone the F-Series - and Ford (once again) dominated sales. This continues a 40-year tradition of high-performance.

Perfection has received an upgrade. While the 2017 F-150 Raptor has already shattered industry expectations - generating 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft of torque - Ford seeks to further push its Baja fleet to the next milestone; and, to accomplish this goal, it’s partnering with the ultimate aftermarket specialist.

According to Torque News, Ford and Hennessey have joined forces to redefine the 2017 Raptor. This off-road beast boasts record-breaking capabilities, with its dual-turbocharged powertrain yielding 605 HP and 622 lb.-ft of torque! A large intake system now anchors the engine, along with a front-mounted intercooler and a catback exhaust. This maximizes performance and allows the pick-up to soar down the track (it revs from 0 to 60 in a mere 4.2 seconds).

Luxury is too often forgotten on the highway - with drivers forced to endure cramped cabins and dull finishes, their pick-ups tailored for strength instead of style. With the release of the 2017 F-250 Super Duty, however, Ford promises a new kind of ride.

Prepare for the Platinum experience!




According to Truck Trend, the 2017 F-250 delivers comfort. Leather seats pair heating and ventilation functions, while integrated massagers provide relief. Dual-zone electronic controls promote precise cabin temperatures; 10-way power lumbar functions offer support; and cloth headliners soften traditionally hard plastics. These elements combine with a suite of tech features, allowing this truck to generate maximum infotainment on the road:

The SYNC 3 Console.
A 10-Speaker Sony Audio System.
CD and MP3 Players.
Auxiliary Input Jacks.
... and more.

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.
