In 2004 Ford introduced drivers to its F-150 SVT - a supercharged beast that delivered best-in-class performance. It boasted both a 5.0L V8 Triton engine and a sport-tuned suspension, ensuring quick speeds on the backroads; and it had no equal.

It still doesn’t.

According to The Drive, a 2004 F-150 SVT found its way onto the starting line of the Haltech World Cup Finals. This pick-up - now cobbled together with a series of aftermarket add-ons, such as a Bennet Racing V8 and a M&M turbocharged transmission - bore little resemblance to its factory form. It still managed, however, to carry on a tradition of excellence… by defeating a Dodge Challenger!

The Drive explains that the F-150 was pitted against Dodge’s latest SRT. None expected such a burly truck to keep pace with this slick speedster - and, yet, the track was soon forced to yield to the rumble of 1,900 HP. The Ford pick-up dominated the race, blazing from 0 to 60 in a mere 2.3 seconds! It revved past the quarter-mile mark in just 7 seconds and it left the Challenger in the dust.

A stunned silence greeted the SVT as it crossed the finish line, with critics and spectators alike baffled by this sudden show of power. We wish we had been there. We would’ve cheered on the truck through every engine rev.

With the end of October comes a series of numbers - those third-quarter margins and year-to-year comparisons. Automotive brands reveal this successes (and failures) to the world, and black ink charts out every profit.

Thanks to the venerable F-Series, Ford has managed to snag most of those profits for itself.

According to The Detroit Free Press, Ford has just unveiled its third-quarter earnings - and they far exceed expectations. The brand's worldwide revenue rose to a staggering $36.5 billion, while its stock shares soared 39 cents. This represents a pre-tax profit of more than $2 billion - allowing the Big Blue Oval to easily best its competition.

What caused such a sudden margin rise? Critics attribute the release of the 2018 F-Series. This half-ton collection (anchored by the F-150 and F-250) has struck a V6 chord with drivers, with each truck yielding a $2,300 profit per sale. This - when coupled with the leap in performance package purchases - has allowed Ford to grow its overall revenue and silence any detractors.

The 2018 F-Series has bolstered the Big Blue Oval, delivering record-breaking sales for the year. We anticipate that this trend will continue when the fourth quarter arrives - with drivers seeking best-in-class trailering, performance, and speed.

The expectations were low - with Wall Street wizards peering into their crystal balls, sighing at the hazy numbers they found. Ford, they predicted, would fail to impress in the marketplace, earning middling sales and weak consumer interest.

With the release of the 2017 F-150, however, these speculations proved little more than smoke.

According to CNBC, Ford has far exceeded every Wall Street analysis - earning a staggering $39.9 billion in revenue for the year (compared to the expected $37.1 billion). This number was achieved by both a lowered tax rate and the strong sales of the F-150, which rose 7% from 2016. This marks the best second-quarter results for the Big Blue Oval since 2001.

We’re not surprised. Ford has reinvented the pick-up market with its 2017 F-150. This platform - bolstered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 - promises best-in-class performance, yielding up to 12,000 pounds of trailering and 3,000 pounds of payloads. It delivers 375 HP and 470 lb.-ft of torque, while its ultra-efficient 10-speed automatic transmission helps it achieve 22 MPGs on the highway. It connects consumers to the heavy-duty performance they crave.... and this is why it’s launched the F-Series to the top of the Wall Street charts.

new ford f150 for sale saskatchewan canadaWith each year comes innovations. Automotive engineers fuse their platforms with the latest in performance technology - ensuring that every coupe, convertible, and pick-up connects consumers to the upgrades they deserve. A recent J.D. Power assessment, however, proves that a new-school mentality isn’t always a substitute for old-school reliability.

During an exhaustive comparison of the top pick-up brands - in which all mid-size and full-size trucks were ranked for their dependability - J.D. Power discovered that the 2014 F-150 and the 2014 F-Series Super Duty were among the nation’s best. This came as a surprise to every pick-up fan. After all, how could these older models match today’s market standards?

The answer is found in their design. J.D. Power notes that both the F-150 and the Super Duty are powerfully made - boasting options like turbocharged engines, extended cabins, and best-in-class capabilities (up to 24,700 pounds for fifth-wheel towing and up to 18,500 pounds for conventional towing). These platforms were engineered to work hard, effortlessly enduring North America’s challenging terrains. They represent both a critical and commercial high-point for Ford.

Want to see why? Come to our lot today and test-drive our available F-150 and F-Series models. Discover the value of peerless power and meticulous construction.

The automotive trends forever wax and wane - fickle in their patterns and relentless in their contrariness. Everything changes; everything shifts; and a new sales king is revealed with each quarter. This is the rule of the road.

Ford proves the exception to that rule.

According to Mustang 360, the F-Series has once again reached the top of the charts - continuing its 40-year streak. Since 1977 it’s delivered the strongest sales in North America, with its signature F-150, F-250, and Super Duty pushing past the competition. No other automotive maker can claim such an impressive victory.

No other automotive maker can also claim such a powerful pick-up fleet. The F-Series has always surpassed its rivals, delivering a suite of best-in-class innovations. Throughout the years it’s introduced the market to turbocharged V8 responses, exclusive Trail Pro Backup assistance, and Intelligent All-Wheel power. Each generation has connected consumers to the options they need to fulfill every heavy-duty task.

This is why the F-Series remains the undisputed champion of North America - shattering records with every decade.

new ford f150 for sale saskatchewan albertaIt’s been a series of staggering highs and unexpected lows. North American automotive sales have shifted with each month - reflecting the trends of budget-conscious consumers and highlighting weaknesses within every brand. Ford was no exception, with its signature Mustang and Fusion revving over rocky roads. These popular platforms failed to generate the wanted numbers, and profits stumbled.

The F-Series has provided stability.

According to Business Wire, unlike its pick-up competitors, the F-Series has managed to maintain a strong (steady) margin. In October it experienced a two perfect increase, with 65,542 total units sold. This helps to bolster an already impressive 2016 performance, allowing Ford to post a 0.1 year-to-year rise.

A quick glance may lead consumers to dismiss this achievement - but critics are already praising the company for its adaptable designs, best-in-class power, and smart infotainment capabilities. These elements allow the F-Series (particularly the F-150 and Super Duty) to conquer a crowded market. It’s defied industry trends by consistently increasing its overall sales.

We’re not surprised. The Ford F-Series has always resonated with our customers - and we know this will continue for many years to come.

November proved a month of revelations - with Ford allowing drivers to peer behind the proverbial curtain to catch a glimpse of its production lines. On those lines sat a series of F-150 performers and Super Duty powerhouses, each primed for 2017. The Go Further future is almost here.

According to Ford Authority, the pick-up market will soon experience a boom of F-Series capability. New concept builds for the F-150, F-250, F-350, Raptor, and Super Duty have been released - and each promises incredible off-road adaptability and long-haul strength. These trucks were first displayed at the 2016 SEMA event and they’ve since made their ways out of Las Vegas (and onto the highways for testing).

Check it out!

A new year will soon begin - and with it comes Ford power. The company is planning a global launch of new F-Series platforms, pairing with noted aftermarket tuners (including Air Design, TS Designs, Skyjacker Suspensions, and MAD Industries) to enhance their HP and payload abilities. Eight custom trucks are now anticipated and, while no official specs have been released, details are already swirling about new V8 EcoBoost engines for all.

new ford f150 for sale saskatchewan canadaPower remains the cornerstone of the Ford F-150. With each generation comes staggering capabilities - with every payload increased and every long-haul extended. This truck is meant to perform.

That performance will soon expand beyond all expectations.

According to Torque News, Ford is mulling a new engine for its 2020 F-150. A 4.8L V8 powertrain is now being considered, with the brand wishing to revitalize its signature truck. By delivering a new V8, it could achieve improved strength, with critics estimating HP ratios of more than 400 and torque ratios of more than 390 lb.-ft. This would ensure best-in-class results with every mile.

It would also ensure best-in-class economy. Rumors swirl that the 4.8L platform will also feature EcoBoost technology. This will allow the 2020 F-150 to continue its trek toward efficiency, with Ford emphasizing reduced fuel demands to compete with mid-size models.

We’ll admit: we’re excited. Even though this F-150 future proves distant, we’ve already got our eyes on the horizon - searching for the first hint of a new V8.

ford f150 dealer saskatchewan canadaMay offered more than its proverbial flowers in 2016. Instead it delivered strong sales - with the Ford F-Series blitzing past the competition and generating new records.

According to 24/7 Wall Street, the F-Series remains the best-selling pick-up in North America, earning an impressive 67,412 total units in May. This represents a 9% year-over-year increase, with the F-150, F-250, and Raptor (once again) proving their consumer appeals. This provided Ford with approximately 45% of all full-size purchases.

The competition was, therefore, left in the dust - with the GMC Silverado delivering only 45,035 units (a 12% year-over-year decline) and the Dodge Ram achieving only 38,833 units (a 3% year-over-year decline). Other leading marquees - including the Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Frontier - fared worse, unable to even manage 10,000 units each. These statistics highlight the value of the F-Series, with consumers flocking to best-in-class towing, payloads, and economy.

June should continue this trend, with drivers hurrying to the Novlan lot to find their F-Series powerhouses. We expect a strong start to summer and know that these trucks will provide seasonal power for all.
