May has come and gone - but its sales are still being studied. Critics have gathered in Alberta, combing dutifully through every spec sheet and dealership tally in hopes of finding a summer chart champion.

We believe it will be the 2018 F-Series.



According to The Drive, the 2018 F-Series reigned atop the charts in May - earning a staggering 108,605 total units. This represents a 9.3% year-to-year increase, and it even surpasses April’s impressive numbers (99,237 total units). Ford has secured pick-up gains for 13 consecutive months; and this fleet seems destined to dominate the summer.

We’re not surprised. The 2018 F-Series boasts North America’s top-selling rides - the F-150, F-250, and F-350. Each of these pick-ups has been fused with exceptional performance, allowing them to accommodate both commercial and off-road demands.


2018 F-150

Horsepower: Up to 450.
Torque: Up to 510 lb.-ft.

2018 F-250

Horsepower: Up to 450.
Torque: Up to 935 lb.-ft.

2018 F-350

Horsepower: Up to 450.
Torque: Up to 935 lb.-ft.

The 2018 F-Series enables drivers to experience true power - delivering up to 14,000 pounds of conventional towing. It’s to be expected, therefore, that this fleet would conquer summer sales.

Long months have passed - with drivers hunched next to their calendars, fingers burdened with the weight of their pens. They’ve been anxiously waiting for news of the 2019 Ranger’s arrival; and they're poised to scribble down the date, not wanting to risk losing a single second.

Breathe a sigh of relief, Alberta: the 2019 Ford Ranger is on its way… and we have the ordering date!



As TFL Truck explains, the ordering date for the new Ranger have been revealed. On August 13th Ford will begin accepting submissions for the platform - with the intention of getting all requests fulfilled by early 2019. This leaves mere months for drivers to ready themselves for the buying frenzy.

After all, who can resist this compact powerhouse?

Anchoring the 2019 Ranger will be a 2.3L EcoBoost engine - complemented by an aluminum-forged crankshaft and double-roller timing chains. A 10-speed automatic transmission promises smooth handling on the backroads (a low-to-high gear range is anticipated to optimize the redline on every terrain); while a rugged steel-infused bed will accommodate even the heaviest payloads. An electronic locking differential will ensure superior balance, engaging the rear axle to counter under-steerage; and Trail Control technology will enable Baja-fun, utilizing both speed moderation and automatic braking to maintain precise traction.

The 2019 Ranger will prove perfect for every adventure. Get ready for the ultimate compact option!

Adventures demand more than mere pluck. Instead advanced technology is needed to traverse the backroads - with too many variables plaguing every mile, undermining performance and power alike. The unknown must be countered.

Ford knows precisely how to do this.



As Trucks.com explains, the 2019 F-150 Raptor will soon arrive in Alberta - and it’s bringing class-leading tech with it. Bolstering the chassis is the newly enhanced Terrain Management System: a suite of intuitive applications that assess, and respond to, the roadways. Sensors monitor the truck’s surroundings, recognizing both incline changes and unsteady lane trajectories. To counter these, signals are sent to each individual wheel and traction ratios are increased based upon under-steerage demands. The brakes are gently engaged, and speed is lessened (typically between 1 MPH to 20 MPH to promote smooth handling).

To further ensure a confident ride, the new Raptor also boasts Trail Control technology. With the press of a button this system will deploy a burst of traction, allowing the truck to grip every terrain and propel forward. This proves vital for those who seek to conquer rocky areas.

With the release of the 2019 F-150 Raptor Ford provides best-in-class support to drivers - allowing them to scale the steepest inclines with ease. To learn more about this platform visit our dealership today.
It’s a mighty hill - carved with grooves and gashes, rolling unsteadily toward the horizon. You long to conquer it… but your truck is already trembling. Its chassis whines; its tires quiver; and its suspension gives a sad creak, protesting even the mere suggestion of a Baja climb. This is not an adventure it will let you have.

Ford believes it’s time to take control of your off-road experiences - which is why it suggests that you trade your meek pick-up for a true V8 beast. The 2019 F-150 Raptor is on its way.



According to Trucks.com, the 2019 Raptor is primed for every adventure. Ford has bolstered its chassis with a brand new suspension, allowing the truck to seamlessly adapt to any terrain. Electronically-controlled shock absorbers anchor the braces, smoothly dispersing friction to ensure a refined ride; while continuously adjusting dampers counter body-roll. Body sensors line the undercarriage and deliver real-time traction assessments, identifying both compression rates and tire grippage to determine the proper stiffness level (the entire system will automatically increase or lessen tension, depending upon the surrounding environment).

To further enhance off-road performance, the 2019 F-150 Raptor boasts a class-leading ground clearance - with its suspension raised to ensure 13-inches in the front and 13.9-inches in the rear. The truck can easily navigate even the roughest roads, with its elevated wheelbase protected from debris.

The new Raptor proves a perfect companion for those craving all-terrain thrills. To learn more about this pick-up contact our team today!

It seems an unlikely alliance - with Ford partnering with ROUSH Racing to enhance its hulking F-250. Though the two brands have been frequent collaborators on the sport market (delivering turbocharged Mustangs to the rally scene), the notion of them applying the same quicksilver treatment to a full-ton hauler has left many critics baffled.

We find, however, that we can easily accept this idea. After all, who can’t see the value in a sport-tuned F-250?



According to the Free Press, the 2018 F-250 has been redefined by ROUSH. This platform has been fused with 20-inch aluminum-alloy rims, delivering an aggressive stance; while 35.3-inch BF Goodrich K02 tires promise all-terrain value, boasting wide interlocks and stiffened sidewalls. Fender flares line the sides and combat debris; and a newly raised suspension promises an extra 1.5-inches of ground clearance (this ensures a total of 10 inches, allowing the platform to roll over every obstacle).

To further delight drivers: despite the extra weight these new features may bring, they demand no compromise of performance. The 2018 F-250 still yields best-in-class power, generating up to 4,315 payload pounds and 13,300 trailering pounds. This all pairs with a robust V8 engine that delivers 435 HP on the highway.

Are you as thrilled as we are?

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.

Rejoice, Alberta business owners! The Vincentric Award winners have just been announced - and the 2018 F-350 Super Duty is among the winners.


According to For Construction Pros, the Vincentric Awards (which showcase the most capable platforms for both light and heavy duty work) have revealed North America’s best fleet vehicles - celebrating power, performance, and payload capability. The 2018 F-350 was among the honorees, earning recognition as the Best Full-Ton Truck.

We’re not surprised.

The new F-350 has been tailored for the commercial market. Beneath its hood growls a 6.7L PowerStroke turbo diesel engine - which yields 450 HP and 935 lb.-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission promises smooth control, while integrated drive-modes (including Sport, Eco, and Tow/Haul) deliver custom traction ratios. The fully-boxed steel frame sits on oversized axles that have boast a 24% torsion increase; while electronic stability and control technology counters under-steerage with gyroscopic precession.

The result is a class-leading pick-up - with the 2018 F-350 boasting up to 21,000 pounds of conventional trailering, up to 34,000 pounds of gooseneck trailering, and up to 7,630 pounds of payload hauling. No other platform proves this powerful.

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’s no longer a race for half-ton domination - with the winner always pre-determined and the competition falling behind. The Ford F-Series has (once again) revved to the top of the charts; and critics wonder whether any brand can ever hope to unseat it.

We somehow don’t think so.



As Market Realist explains, the F-Series - anchored by the 2018 F-150, F-250, and F-350 - achieved a 7% year-to-year growth in March, earning 87,000 total unit sales. This marks the 11th consecutive month of fleet gains; and it showcases the true popularity of the Ford brand, with drivers propelling these trucks toward (yet another) record-setting quarter. Overall profit increases are expected to exceed 19.4%.

How is the possible? The Novlan team credits Ford’s latest diesel powertrain - with the F-Series offering a 6.7L V6. This class-exclusive option yields staggering capability (250 HP and 440 lb.-ft of torque) and unprecedented economy (30 MPGs on the highway). It blends direct-injection technology with an advanced turbocharger to optimize each rev, and this transforms every pick-up into a true all-terrain beast.

Is it any surprise that drivers are seeking these platforms out?

It begins with a whisper - the promise of a class-leading compact, the hint of a twin-turbo performer. The 2019 Ranger Raptor, critics muse, may find its way to North America; and steadily this hope grows, with consumers clamoring for both information and confirmation. They beg Ford to make this happen, swearing that they’ll all flock to the dealerships in return.

Possibility may soon turn to reality - because Ford is contemplating bringing the 2019 Ranger Raptor overseas!



As The Drive explains, Ford may soon ship the Ranger Raptor to North America. Consumer response has been overwhelming and the need for a compact alternative proves viable. This has, of course, led to intense speculation about how much this platform will cost (its niche design and international marque brands it unique among the market).

The Drive team believes it has a close estimate. This platform currently sells for $27,390 in Australia - with consumers forced to pay for both shipping and international tariffs (which raise the total price by a 1.81 multiplier). US and Canadian customers wouldn’t be subject to those specific fees, however. Instead they could reap the benefits of best-in-class power for as little as $21,259.

That, The Drive argues, would deliver access to a base model - which should include a twin-turbo engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and an AWD. A sport-tuned suspension is also anticipated to ensure superior off-roading.
