In 2015 Ford brought aluminum to the pick-up market - and critics sneered. Replacing traditional steel, they claimed, would prove disastrous; and trying to repair the many dents of the road would leave drivers both overwhelmed and underfunded. This was surely a mistake.

It wasn’t.

According to Motor One, Ford’s use of aluminum panels has yielded unprecedented success - with overall repair costs greatly lowered and insurance premiums remaining steady. Despite the claims of critics (and the competition), the F-150’s new design is consumer-friendly:

When comparing the costs of replacing steel and aluminum panels, Motor One discovered an estimated $2,000 difference - with the new structure proving easier to fix.

When comparing the costs of insurance, aluminum panels have created a seven percent decrease in collision severity claims - therefore slightly reducing overall premiums.

The use of aluminum has transformed the F-150 into a premier pick-up - and this is now continued in the 2019 model. Ford has fused this platform with military-grade materials, defining the body with rugged composites and durable metals. Through this, class-leading performance can be achieved (up to 8,000 of traditional towing) without requiring heavy steel.

Compromise no more, Alberta.

new ford f150 raptor for sale alberta canadaCraving a supercharged experience on the backroads? Ford may soon oblige you - with rumors swirling about a new F-150 Raptor. This pick-up, critics suggest, will redefine every mile.

According to Road and Track, the Raptor may receive a V8 upgrade. Ford intends to launch a new generation of its class-leading F-150 by 2022 and, to ensure a proper send-off, it's considering pairing the final model with a fresh powertrain. A 5.2L engine is anticipated - the same that growls beneath the hood of the Mustang. This supercharged option will replace the standard twin-turbocharged suite, yielding up to 700 HP (compare this to the current output of 450 HP); and the inclusion of a 10-speed automatic transmission will further thrill, allowing drivers to seamlessly shift between Sport and Baja modes.

Road and Track is quick to note that Ford has not yet confirmed this engine option - but it does believe that the chances prove high. A 2020 release date is anticipated… which leaves mere months before Raptor fans experience true trail power.

What do you think about this anticipated F-150 upgrade? Share your opinions with our team today - and don’t hesitate to request further information about the Raptor.
It may be 2018 - but Ford (in partnership with aftermarket tuner, Hoonigan) is delivering a 70’s experience to North America. Prepare for a pick-up like no other.

According to Road and Track, a custom F-150 will soon make its debut. The Hoonitruck (designed by rally champion, Ken Block) is a beastly hybrid, blending the chassis of a 1977 model with a modern-day V6. The result is a circuit-ready platform that will crush the competition, delivering 914 HP.

The Hoonitruck is intended to dominate the Gymkhana 10 event (a series of races held across multiple locations). On the track it will dazzle guests - with its twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost growling with every rev. Custom Fifteen52 tires will anchor the body, delivering beadlock designs that will shred the pavement; while a custom 3D-printed manifold will ensure maximum intake levels, regulating valve performance with precision. The all-wheel-drive-train will further impress, providing smooth articulation and electronic stability control.

The true value of this truck, however, is its design - which utilizes body panels from the 1977 F-150. This creates a vintage effect on the track, with square fenders and a short-bed proving impossible to ignore. Hoonigan and Ford further emphasize the classic lines by adding orange wheel covers, a wide front bumper, and camouflage-inspired decals. The result is the perfect fusion of old and new.

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.

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?

To learn more about the 2018 F-Series contact our dealership today - and don’t forget to request a test-drive in one of our current F-150, F-250, or F-350 models!

In 2015 Ford transformed the half-ton market - introducing drivers to its newly revised F-Series. This fleet delivered a design like no other, with its F-150, F-250 and F-350 platforms all fused with military-grade aluminum. The effect proved both striking and economical (shedding more than 700-pounds from each chassis to promote improved fuel capabilities). Strong sales followed and every chart has since been dominated by the Big Blue Oval.

Many critics are, therefore, surprised to learn that Ford intends to unveil a series of new pick-ups to the market. The F-Series is receiving its 14th generation upgrade.

According to Torque News, Ford is currently revising its entire F-Series fleet. Despite the current design architecture proving popular - with drivers seeking out its lightweight frame and smart cargo options, including the BoxLink system (which blends stowable loading ramps with deployable side-steps) - the company wishes to push its technology forward. By 2020 it intends to launch fully revised F-150s, F-250s, and Super Duty models; and, while no official specs have been revealed, many believe that each of these platforms will deliver:

Standardized 10-Speed Transmission: currently an optional F-Series feature, this system should be integrated into the entire fleet. It will allow for smooth automatic responses, reducing gear-strain on tricky terrains.

Increased Aluminum: Ford shattered the half-ton mold when it cast the F-Series in an alloy frame. Now that this material has proven its worth, expect to see it used to even greater effect. New paneling and undercarriage castings are anticipated.

Flat-Loading Floor: Currently found in the Super Crew and Super Cab configurations, this design option should be offered across every truck, providing one-touch storage solutions and durable vinyl materials.

The 2020 F-Series promises to improve upon every Ford feature - and we can’t wait to see these trucks in Alberta. To learn more contact us today.
It seems the most unlikely of competitions - with the 2018 F-Series pitting itself against social media giant Facebook. Both are ready to reveal their revenues for 2017; and Alberta critics snicker in disbelief, certain that Ford will (finally) find itself at a disadvantage. While the Big Blue Oval may dominate the half-ton market, it simply can’t outperform the world’s largest online network.

Can it?

According to The Detroit Free Press, it most certainly can. The venerable news site has just reported that - in 2017 -  the F-Series generated a staggering $41.25 billion. This fleet of trucks (which includes the F-150, F-250, and F-350) left all competitors behind, including Facebook (which earned $40 billion, respectively).

How is such a feat possible? In an interview with The Detroit Free Press, Erich Merkle (a Ford analyst) said: “On average, we'll sell about two F-Series pickup trucks every minute. By the time you've finished this article you're reading right now, we've sold another one."

The Novlan team isn’t surprised. The 2018 F-Series has proven an unstoppable force on our lot, delivering best-in-class towing (21,000 pounds when properly equipped) and exceptional power (up to 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft of torque). The inclusion of a new 10-speed automatic transmission further propels sales, providing our customers with the seamless gear ratios they crave. It blends a crisp low-to-mid range capability, quickly engaging the SelectShift functionality to improve performance.

It’s no wonder that Facebook can’t keep up!

It seems an impossible union - the big-wheeled Raptor and the long-bodied Bronco. How could these two ever join forces? They dominate entirely different verticals (one serving as a Baja pick-up and the other delivering crossover convenience); and their powertrains share none of the same stylings, emphasizing unique performance needs. They could never become a single entity.

Never is a word for other automotive brands. Ford instead embraces the impossible - with a Raptor Bronco currently being considered.

According to Car and Driver, Ford is debating the merits of combining two of its most successful platforms - the F-150 Raptor and the Bronco. In 2020 an entirely new crossover may make its way to North America, blending elements from both vehicles to achieve all-terrain dominance. A 2.7L V6 engine is anticipated, yielding up to 335 HP; while a 10-speed automatic transmission should deliver impeccable shifting, allowing for smoother gear-to-gear transitions. The chassis should feature a four-door profile, with flared fenders and wide 20-inch wheels; and the inclusion of FOX shocks will impress drivers, letting them crisply navigate even the toughest roads.

While we must note that these specs have yet to be confirmed, Car and Driver does seem certain of their validity - drawing comparisons to Ford’s current Everest model (an Australia SUV that may serve as the foundation for the Raptor Bronco).

Are you as excited as we are?

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.
