This Super Duty helps you excel at cargo management with a Boxlink system with versatile tiedowns, cleats and optional stowable loading ramps.

Customize how your commercial fleet carries cargo with Ford’s Boxlink system. With this innovative in-bed solution, four factory-installed reinforced mounting plates near the four corners of the truck’s bed make it easy to secure the most challenging loads. These plates offer additional tiedown points and can be paired with locking cleats for added security. They are also compatible with bungee cords, S-hooks and e-track fittings.

If your commercial crew needs to transport ride-on equipment, like ATVs or lawnmowers, the 2021 F-350 includes optional stowable loading ramps. When not in use, the ramps attach to the sides of the Super Duty’s pickup box using the BoxLink system. The length of the telescoping ramps can also be extended or shortened to accommodate multiple positions.

Boxlink with four lockable cleats comes standard on XLT and higher trims of the 2021 F-350 or optional equipment on the base XL. To learn more about this cargo management system and how it can bolster your commercial fleet’s productivity, contact our team at Skaha Ford in BC.

The 2021 F-350, available from Skaha Ford in BC, is your partner with sharing the workload. This medium-duty truck comes laden with several driver assists to help you dominate your tasks while feeling confident and in control.

All 2021 F-350 are equipped with an AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control system, which ensures driver control under challenging conditions, especially on ice, snow, and gravel terrain. Automatic on/off headlamps automatically illuminate the road ahead in low-light situations, while hill start assist lets you seamlessly switch from the brake pedal to the gas without rolling backwards while on a slope. The 2021 F-350 also includes a trailer sway control system when towing heavy equipment. This system notifies you when unwanted trailer movement is caused by high speeds or an unevenly distributed load.

Other driver assists include a rearview camera with dynamic hitch assist, making it easier to connect your trailer to the Super Duty. The system provides an on-screen guide that helps you align your hitch with your trailer by using lines that indicate which direction your truck must travel while in reverse.

Curious to learn more? Get in touch with our team at Skaha Ford in BC to schedule a test drive in the 2021 F-350. Our Service Department is also available to answer all your medium-duty truck repair and maintenance questions to keep your commercial fleet running in top form.

This Super Duty comes equipped with a MyKey system, which allows fleet owners to program the truck’s key with restricted driving modes while your employees are on the road.

Ford’s MyKey technology is a popular feature with parents of young drivers, but it’s also ideal for commercial fleets. Programming the key is easy to do using the vehicle’s message centre, where you can choose your preferred driving settings, which include:

 
Seat belt reminders: This feature emits a six-second reminder chime every 30 seconds and mutes the audio system until all front passengers fasten their seat belts. The message centre also displays “Buckle Up to Unmute Radio” on the screen.

Top speed settings: MyKey can limit a vehicle’s top speed at four different settings (105, 115, 120 or 130 km/h). Chimes provide an early warning as the F-350 gains speed.

Earlier low-fuel warning: MyKey provides an alarm at 120 km to empty, rather than the standard 80-km warning.

Driving aid deactivation: Safety features, such as parking assistance, traction control and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, cannot be deactivated. 

Audio volume: Audio volume can be restricted up to 44 percent.

MyKey comes standard on all trims of the 2021 F-350. To learn more about this Super Duty’s features, contact Skaha Ford to speak with a member of our team. We also offer medium-duty truck repair services for BC commercial fleets. Ask about it today!

Unfortunately, driving in these treacherous conditions is not only challenging but dangerous too. Ford has a solution to this problem with the release of the 2021 F-350 and its standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control system.

AdvanceTrac is an electronic stability system that ensures driver control over the vehicle in difficult conditions, especially on terrain with ice, snow, gravel and even dry pavement. This technology is designed to improve traction by increasing friction over these surfaces, thereby improving resistance to prevent slippage or out-of-control steering.

AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control uses small gyroscopic sensors that take readings of the 2021 F-350’s roll rate and vehicle roll motion at least 100 times per second. When wheel slippage is detected in these readings, the system slows down the engine to stabilize the truck. So even when the weather is terrible, and road conditions become unfavourable, you’ll have complete peace of mind that the 2021 F-350’s AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control will keep all four wheels firmly planted.

Known as Adaptive Steering, this system helps drivers operate the truck at low speeds while enjoying agile steering at higher clips. It works by changing the ratio between the driver’s actions at the steering wheel and how much the front wheels turn. For example, when pulling into a parking space or navigating through tight areas, Adaptive Steering uses fewer steering wheel turns. At highway speeds, the system ensures smooth steering responses and faster inputs. This performance is the opposite of fixed steering ratio, which many medium-duty trucks offer. 

With Adaptive Steering, your commercial fleet benefits from optimized driving responses in all conditions, providing a more responsive behind the wheel experience. It also limits driver fatigue, which is essential to your crews’ safety and overall productivity.

The 2021 F-350’s Adaptive Steering is part of the Super Duty’s Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology and comes standard on the Limited trim and is optional on the Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models.

To experience this feature for yourself, schedule a test drive in a 2021 F-350 at Shaka Ford. Don’t forget that our Service Department also offers medium-duty truck repairs, maintenance and modification to BC commercial fleets. Discover more today!

But after a long day at the job site, your crew is tired, and it can be challenging to concentrate. To provide your operators with a safe and convenient experience in high-traffic situations, the 2021 F-350 – available from Skaha Ford in BC – includes Adaptive Cruise Control for enhanced on-road ease.

This system employs advanced radar and camera technology that lets drivers set a cruising speed and distance from vehicles up ahead. When traffic slows down, the Super Duty follows suit, and when traffic picks back up again, the truck resumes to the preset speed and distance.

With Adaptive Cruise Control, your commercial fleet benefits from improved safety by avoiding potential rear-end collisions that occur when following at a short distance. This system also protects your drivers and fleet trucks from damages and injuries, resulting in periods of frustrating downtime due to vehicle repairs.

The 2021 F-350’s Adaptive Cruise Control system is part of the Super Duty’s Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology and comes standard on Platinum and Limited trims and is optional on the Lariat and King Ranch.

To learn more about this driver-assist and the F-350’s specs and features, contact us at Skaha Ford to book a test drive. We also offer medium-duty truck repair services for BC commercial fleets. Inquire today!

This medium-duty truck comes equipped with Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking to detect accidents before they happen and react if your driver does not.

The Pre-Collision Assist feature uses camera technology to sense a potential collision with a vehicle or pedestrian directly in front of the F-450 during daytime or nighttime driving. It can help reduce the severity of and possibly eliminate a frontal collision. 

Additionally, if a potential collision is detected, an alert sound will emit through the cabin, and a warning message will display in the message centre. If action is not sufficient, the Automatic Emergency Braking system will precharge the brakes and increase sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when braking does occur. If no action is taken at all, the brakes will automatically apply as a last resort to avoid an accident with a pedestrian or another vehicle.

The Super Duty’s Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking is like having another set of eyes on the road. This feature comes standard on 2021 F-450 XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims and is optional on the base XL trim.

The 2021 F-350 – available at Skaha Ford – aims to revolutionize your commercial fleet’s confidence on BC roads by including a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Trailer Coverage and Cross-Traffic Alert.

This enhanced version of Ford’s BLIS system is made primarily with medium-duty truck operators in mind. It provides coverage for the Super Duty you are driving and whatever you are pulling behind the pickup. An audible sound will alert you of the potentially unsafe lane change when a vehicle is spotted in the blindspot – whether alongside the truck or the trailer.

BLIS with Trailer Coverage and Cross-Traffic Alert supports conventional trailers and automatically turns off when towing a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer. Trailers can range up to 2.7 m wide (measured at the front) and up to 10 m long, providing great versatility for whatever you tow. This driver-assist comes standard on 2021 F-350 XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims and is optional on the base XL trim.

The Super Duty’s advanced technologies make hard roads much easier for commercial fleets. To learn about the F-350’s features or inquire about medium-duty truck services and repairs, contact our team at Skaha Ford today.

With the launch of the Super Duty, the Blue Oval aims to change that with the inclusion of Auto High-Beam Headlamps on the 2021 F-350, which is available at Skaha Ford in BC.

The system makes visibility a priority for commercial fleets. It works by automatically turning the high-beam headlamps on and off when it senses poor lighting conditions – without any driver input – to light your path ahead. The Auto High-Beam Headlamps on the 2021 F-350 uses a windshield-mounted camera that scans the road at speeds above 40 km per hour (25 miles per hour). 

The headlamps can even sense oncoming vehicles and dim the lights accordingly. For example, when a motorist is approaching up to 610 metres (2,000 feet) away or travelling up to 152 metres (500 feet) ahead of you, the system will dim to lower the beams to reduce glare and avoid hindering the other driver’s visibility.

Auto High-Beam Headlamps come standard on the 2021 F-350 XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims. To learn more about this feature or to inquire about medium-duty truck repairs, maintenance and modification for your commercial fleet, contact Skaha Ford in BC.

The 2021 Ford F-350 is now available at Skaha Ford in BC. This workhorse of a commercial fleet vehicle pulverizes punishing jobs with impressive precision. But when the whistle blows, this pickup also converts into an incredible off-road machine with the addition of the Tremor Off-Road Package.

Seize the off-beaten path in the 2021 F-350 – with the 35-inch off-road tires and 18-inch low-gloss painted wheels, you’ll have the grip you need to climb over obstacles and unruly terrain. With an approach angle of 31.7 degrees and a 24.5-degree departure angle, typography changes are no worry in this Super Duty.

You won’t have to turn around when you approach shallow waters, either. The 2021 F-350 Tremor has the best water fording depth in its class with 84 cm of capability thanks to the unique front springs that increase the truck’s ride height and extended axle vent tubes.

The Tremor Off-Road Package is available on 2021 F-350 trucks with the 7.3L V8 or the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine. To learn more about this pickup’s off-road prowess, contact our team at Skaha Ford in BC to schedule a test drive.
