Winter has come - but the Novlan team is looking past the snow, knowing that spring will bring premium pick-up power. The 2019 Ranger is on its way!


According to The Dayton Daily News, Ford will soon rev up production of its 2019 Ranger - with a spring arrival date planned for next year. This should cause considerable celebration within North America, with drivers no longer having to feel the loss of a half-ton alternative. While the F-Series remains the top-selling vehicle in both Canada and the United States, there is still a viable compact market; and consumers will soon have the best in nimble handling and powerhouse performance.

The Dayton Daily News explains that - when the 2019 Ford Ranger arrives - it will offer a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine (the same one currently housed inside the Mustang). A 10-speed automatic transmission will replace the traditional manual gearbox, ensuring smooth handling; while two-door and four-door options will accommodate all driver needs, branding this both a commercial hauler and a family platform. The potential of a six-foot bed should also impress, promising payload capacities of more than 1,500 pounds.

Are you ready for this compact beast?

2018 has just begun - but last year’s sales charts still hang on Ford’s wall, reminding of record-breaking quarters and unprecedented profits. The Big Blue Oval has finally revealed its total tallies for 2017, and they’ve left the critics stunned.

According to Seeking Alpha, Ford dominated in 2017. In every vertical - crossovers, sedans, and pick-ups - it saw tremendous growth; and its total profits soared to $7.6 billion! No other competitor managed such staggering results, with losses seen across the automotive board (Toyota, General Motors, and Chevrolet had their numbers stumble).

What caused such a strong consumer response? Ford credits its 2018 F-150. This pick-up led the brand to an astonishing 9.3% year-to-year increase - with total sales jumping to 896,746 units. Drivers were drawn to its Ti-VCT V6 engine and new 10-speed automatic transmission, as well as its best-in-class trailering capability (up to 8,000 pounds). This platform thrilled across Canada, delivering Intelligent AWD to every mile.

It’s no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 F-150 reigned as last year’s top-selling vehicle - with its success propelling Ford to segment-leading profits. We can only imagine what this platform (along with the upcoming 2019 version) will achieve in the months to come.

In the wake of Ford’s diesel announcements - with the Big Blue Oval fusing its F-150 with PowerStroke performance and best-in-class economy - drivers may find themselves overjoyed by the promise of fuel pump savings. No longer will they have to throw their precious dollars away. Efficiency is instead guaranteed.

For those in need of pure performance, however, the Novlan team knows that a diesel engine won’t be enough. Instead SuperCrew capability is needed; and the 2018 F-150 promises segment-shattering power.



According to STL Today, the 2018 F-150 SuperCrew proves essential for drivers searching for long-haul abilities. Anchored by a 5.0L V8, this platform can achieve 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Its 10-speed automatic transmission smoothly responds to changing inclines, while its 4WD transfer case technology allows it to adapt to every mile through exclusive drive-mode functions: Normal, Snow/Wet, Tow/Haul, Eco, Sport, and Manual. When these options engage, they enable to truck to roll through every obstacle with ease - automatically adjusting traction and stability ratios to improve handling.

To further impress, the 2018 SuperCrew also boasts up to 13,200 pounds of conventional trailering - allowing drivers to accommodate commercial and off-road hauls alike!

Diesel value may dominate the news - but the 2018 F-150 SuperCrew will prove a viable contender for those in search of premium power. To learn more about this platform contact us today.

In 2011 drivers shared a rare grief - weeping as Ford ceased production on its much-beloved Ranger. This pick-up had served as a compact alternative to the hulking half-tons, and it proved ideal for those seeking urban adventures. It was small; it was fierce; and… it was gone.

Now, however, hope has returned to North America - because the Ranger is making its way back to the highway!



According to The Drive, Ford has just revealed its 2019 Ranger. This platform will reinvigorate the market, offering consumers an alternative to long-cabbed F-150s. Anchored by a 2.3L Ecoboost (which should generate 310 HP), it promises stellar performance - blending a 10-speed automatic transmission with four-cylinder steadiness. An electronic locking rear differential will create a balanced ride, while available AWD will pair high and low transfer technology to quickly adapt to changing environments.

What should most impress drivers, however, is the revised chassis - which now boasts extra inches in the bed. The 2019 Ranger has been extended to provide enhanced payload capabilities (exact dimensions have yet to be released). Though still tailored for the compact market, the truck will now be able to compete with the likes of Toyota’s Tundra and Chevrolet’s Colorado. This will ensure easier day-to-day hauling and will prove ideal for light-duty demands.

The future of performance has arrived - with Ford unveiling its 2018 F-150 Diesel. This half-ton option will redefine efficiency, delivering PowerStroke capability to North America. No longer will pick-up devotees suffer frequent station stops. Instead they’ll finally be able to indulge in the savings of their sedan-driving counterparts, achieving an estimated 30 MPGs on the highway.

We’ll give you a moment to collect your jaw from the floor.

As a recent Forbes article explains, the 2018 F-150 Diesel will be a segment-leading beast. Anchored by a 3.0L V6, this F-Series model promises superior responses - blending a lightweight graphite iron design with a durable forged steel crank. These elements maximize the performance of the engine, allowing it to sustain steady bursts of power. Direct-injection technology (ranked at 29,000 PSI) ensures optimal fuel levels; while a supplemental filter promotes quality control. A high-efficiency turbocharger completes the effect, creating a full-throttle experience with every rev.

When these technologies combine, they allow the 2018 F-150 to dominate at the pump and on the highway. Complementing the best-in-class MPG ratio is staggering performance - with the PowerStroke engine achieving 250 HP and 440 lb.-ft of torque. Sacrifice is a thing of the past.

Beneath the hood of the 2018 F-450 Super Duty waits a PowerStroke engine - one that will redefine both the full-ton market and consumer expectations. This 6.7L beast enables drivers to push the boundaries of trailering, promising up to 34,000 pounds of gooseneck capabilities; and its radical design maximizes every rev. It has no equal.

Are you ready for premium performance?



According to Fleet Equipment Mag, the 2018 F-450 now reigns as the market’s most powerful full-ton platform - yielding 21,000 pounds of conventional towing and 7,360 pounds of payload hauling. It’s a true diesel force that will impress with every mile; and no consumer will find it lacking when adapting to their off-road or commercial needs.

How does this Super Duty option dominate the market? The Fleet Equipment team explains that Ford has fully revised the PowerStroke engine - fusing it with enlarged cylinder heads and turbo-boosted technology. This ensures that all fuel intake levels are optimized, with the graphite iron blocking redistributing resources as needed to accommodate the heaviest loads. Performance ratios have also been increased, with the F-450 delivering 450 HP (10 HP more than the previous year).

These elements combine to ensure a trucking experience like no other.

It’s not often that we envy our Down Under counterparts - but the Novlan team can’t help but feel a twinge of regret when we see the 2018 Ranger rumble through the bush. This compact powerhouse has just made its Australian debut, and we have our fingers crossed that it will somehow find its way to us.


According to Motoring.com, the 2018 Ranger is a class-leading option for those who crave pick-up power and sedan maneuverability. Its nimble chassis - which measures a mere 126-inches long - can easily navigate the most crowded downtown centers. The 2.0L Duratec ZSD-422 engine yields a sprightly 158 HP and 283 lb.-ft of torque; while its six-speed manual transmission promises impeccable handling, allowing drivers to seamlessly transition from the highway to the backroads. This mid-size platform rides on 16-inch steel wheels and offers superior responses with every mile.

To achieve those responses, Ford has fused the 2018 F-150 Ranger with a suite of control functions - including its signature AdvanceTrac stability technology and trailer sway functionality. These promote a balanced ride, keeping the RWD perfectly aligned and reducing the chance of understeerage. Drivers can now tackle any terrain with confidence.

No official release date has been given for the 2018 Ranger in North America - but we have high hopes that consumer interest will spur Ford to bring it across the pond very soon.

Economy is an unfamiliar concept within the pick-up world. Massive engines demand equally massive amounts of fuel - with their cavernous blocks unable to sustain even the smallest measure of power without a full-tank. This forces drivers to divide their hours between watching the gauge needle and searching for stations.

The release of the 2018 F-150 Diesel should change that.



According to US News, Ford will soon unveil its 2018 Diesel - and this platform is primed to redefine the market. Boasting a 3.0L PowerStroke engine, the F-150 will achieve an estimated 22 MPGs in the city and 28 MPGs on the highway (we do note that these numbers have not yet been confirmed but are instead generated by comparisons of the Range Rover, which shares a similar chassis build). A rear-wheel-drive will effortlessly adapt to changing inclines, promoting precise torque distribution; while the new 10-speed automatic transmission will eliminate gear strain and ensure a more fluid ride.

Through this, the F-150 will deliver a seamless driving experience - sparing North American consumers those frequent station visits.

No official release date has been given for the 2018 Diesel. Critics anticipate an early spring arrival, however, and believe that Ford will soon enter its production phase.

Too often are adventures defined by limitations - with pick-ups proving inadequate with every mile. These tiny-engined platforms falter when faced with dust and dirt; and their all-wheel promises break in the wake of sandy shores. They’re simply unable to deliver the necessary performance.

With the release of the 2018 F-150 Raptor, Ford is bringing a new sense of power to the market. Prepare for a custom Baja experience.



Ford (in partnership with GeigerCars) is launching a new Raptor. The EcoBoost HP520 will be a monstrous presence on the back-roads, delivering twin-turbo performance with every mile. Anchored by a 3.5L V6, this truck will roar past the competition - yielding more than 500 HP and 530 lb.-ft of torque. This burst of power will prove welcome in North America, allowing drivers to explore mountain inclines and ocean shores alike.

Critics note that Ford has revitalized its Raptor platform - fusing it with advanced ECU remapping and an enhanced air intake system to improve overall performance. 37-inch tires rumble across the pavement; and, when paired with the newly upgraded suspension (which boasts a four-inch lift kit), they allow this platform to effortlessly adapt to changing terrains. It’s been finely tuned for the back-roads.

Numbers never lie. This is the (unfortunate) truth that Chevrolet recently discovered - with its latest Silverado forced to combat the 2018 F-150 in a spec-driven competition. The critics were brutal; the results were undeniable; and the end of the day saw Ford earn yet another award.


According to USA Today, the 2018 Silverado was recently pitted against the F-150 - with the Edmunds team seeking to determine which platform proved best for everyday demands. While many guessed that Ford would secure the victory, none expected it to be such a one-sided race around the track. A quick glance at both platforms’ specs revealed who would win before the starting pistol ever sounded:

Economy

The 2018 F-150 easily bests the Silverado, delivering 22 MPGs (Combined) to Chevy’s 20 MPGs (Combined).

Towing

Offering a maximum trailering capacity of 13,200 pounds, the new F-150 shatters every record (and leaves the Silverado’s 12,800 pounds in the dust).

Payloads

Boasting a rugged V8, the F-150 offers up to 3,270 payload pounds - compared to the Silverado’s meager 2,250 pounds.

There is no denying that Ford’s latest F-Series platform excels in all things… and that Chevrolet has quite a bit of re-tuning to do for next year.
