ALL-NEW FORD F-SERIES SUPER DUTY IS BUILT LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH NEXT-LEVEL CAPABILITY, CONNECTIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY

By jfawler | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, September 29th, 2022 at 3:21 PM
  • Next-generation 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty takes Ford’s trusted heavy-duty truck to the next level with must-have tech such as Pro Power Onboard™ that can power a jobsite or campground, and Ford Pro’s suite of software and services to help maximize uptime, accelerate productivity, and lower the cost of ownership
  • New Super Duty targets the most towing, payload, torque and horsepower of any heavy-duty full-size truck, thanks to four engine choices, including all-new standard 6.8-litre V8 gas engine and new high-output 6.7-litre Power Stroke diesel V8
  • The first pickup in North America with embedded 5G capability, enabling faster mapping, Wi-Fi and Ford Power-Up software updates while driving, plus all-new available Trailer Navigation identifies the best real-time drive route to take based on trailer size
  • New Ford Pro™ Upfit Integration System makes adding and operating special work equipment, such as lights, cranes or snowplows, easier than ever 

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 27, 2022 – Ford, North America’s truck leader*, today introduced the all-new 2023 F-Series Super Duty lineup of pickup trucks and chassis cabs. Redesigned inside and out, every Super Duty is built with unprecedented levels of work capability, ingenious new technology and a suite of cloud-based services for new levels of productivity.

“From F-250 pickup to the F-600 utility truck, Super Duty is the badge North America’s hardest-working men and women have come to trust to get the toughest jobs done,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO. “Super Duty customers are builders – the backbone of our communities and our economies. We poured every ounce of know-how and ingenuity we have into developing the truck of their dreams – smarter, more powerful, full of clever features and technology.”

Ford Super Duty is not only the tool of choice for builders; it plays a significant economic role.  Super Duty also is the preferred choice in North America for essential industries, including construction, emergency response, forestry, mining, services and utilities, according to S&P Global Mobility.

F-Series Super Duty popularity also makes it a significant economic contributor to Ford Motor Company, generating more revenue than many Fortune 500 companies, including Southwest Airlines, Marriott International or Nordstrom reported for 2021.

“Super Duty is a name that is trusted to get the job done, and our customers have helped to make it the most popular commercial truck in North America, bar none,” said Ted Cannis, CEO of Ford Pro. “With state-of-the-art technology, including a 5G modem connected to a powerful ecosystem of productivity-boosting software and services, the all-new Super Duty can seamlessly shift from workhorse to office of the future.”

A workhorse built to get things done

Super Duty is defined by its power and capability. The new Super Duty offers the broadest range of engines in the class:

  • New standard 6.8-litre V8 gas engine, targeting more low-end torque to make starting on steep grades and merging onto highways easier
  • 7.3-litre V8 that is targeting the best gas horsepower and torque in the class thanks to improved air intake and tuning
  • A 6.7-litre Power Stroke V8 diesel that can go longer intervals between oil changes to stay on the job longer
  • New high-output 6.7-litre Power Stroke V8 diesel with a unique turbo, upgraded exhaust manifolds and unique tuning targeting the best horsepower and torque in the class

Every Super Duty features a Ford-designed and built 10-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission, and every chassis cab model comes standard with a power take off connection to run added equipment, like boom lifts and plows. Four-wheel drive is now standard on XLT models and above.

The new Ford Pro Upfit Integration System** (UIS) is a game changer for customers who rely on body equipment and upfits to accomplish a job, such as utility cranes or plows. This digital solution provides aftermarket equipment makers with improved access to Super Duty’s electrical system and signals to seamlessly integrate and operate their hardware into the truck’s digital displays**. Cloud-based software connects to the UIS so equipment makers can add digital buttons that allow drivers to control their equipment from inside the truck. The system also allows for high levels of customization** and safety interlocks**, like preventing the transmission from shifting into drive with a raised boom lift.

Pro Power Onboard is now available for Super Duty, featuring more exportable power than any heavy-duty pickup or chassis cab. The 2.0-kilowatts of output can power a jobsite or tailgate party. Power outlets are accessible inside the truck and cargo box, or they can be mounted on chassis cabs with a special outlet installation kit.

Not just best-in-class capabilities, but best all-around experience

Most heavy-duty pickup owners use their trucks to tow, and with targeted best-in-class payload ††† and towing ‡ for every trailer type, Super Duty ensures customers can haul with confidence. 

New available driver assist technologies*** designed to simplify the towing experience and build confidence include:

  • Onboard Scales with Smart Hitch** that estimates cargo weight in real time and provides guidance on trailer tongue weight distribution directly on the centre touchscreen, FordPass™ app or within the taillamps
  • 360-Degree Trailer Camera System** that provides a bird’s-eye view of the trailer to make maneuvering in tight spaces easier and with virtually no blind spots 
  • Blind Spot Information System for Fifth Wheel & Gooseneck** that can be attached to a trailer to help identify when vehicles are next to a trailer and indicate this in the side view mirrors
  • Industry-First Available Tailgate Down Camera and Tailgate Down Reverse Sensing System** includes a new camera and reverse sensors in the top of the tailgate that provide visual and audible alerts when the tailgate is down to make backing up to a dock or hitching a gooseneck or fifth-wheel trailer easier than ever before
  • Pro Trailer Hitch Assist** automatically backs the truck up and aligns the conventional hitch ball to the trailer receiver
  • Trailer Navigation plots routes that can be safely navigated with given trailer dimensions and weight to avoid potential issues with low bridges and tight turns

“Our goal was to leave drivers with zero blind spots, even when towing the longest trailers,” said Andrew Kernahan, Ford Super Duty chief engineer. “Camera views provide every angle, from simulating a drone to making sure customers can see behind the truck even when the tailgate is down. Hitching and towing has never been easier.”

There’s also new safety and security available technology that goes beyond camera angles:

  • Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering automatically brakes and accelerates to a preset speed and helps keep the truck in its lane‡‡
  • Trailer Theft Alert will send an alert via the FordPass app should anyone attempt to disconnect the trailer when the truck is locked
  • Vehicle Security, available with a Ford Pro Telematics subscription, uses sensors to monitor impact and towing events and sends alerts even when the vehicle is off***
  • Fleet Start Inhibit allows Ford Pro customers to schedule timeframes for when the vehicle can be started to improve confidence around fleet operations
  • Forward/Reverse Sensing System helps drivers by showing objects immediately in front of the vehicle and warns when objects are near the front or rear of the vehicle*** §§
  • Front** and Rear Brake Assist helps prevent low-speed collisions to help automatically protect against hitting objects that may otherwise be hard to see***
  • Full-colour head-up display helps keep eyes on the road by showing information right in the driver’s line of sight that changes with driving mode

Powering businesses into the digital age

The 2023 Ford Super Duty is the first pickup in North America with embedded 5G capability.**** In Canada, Bell’s high-performance 5G network can deliver faster navigation, mapping and music downloads with higher quality than 4G. Super Duty’s 5G modem from Qualcomm Technologies can also provide a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices†† to help keep workers and families connected on the go, and support Ford Power-Up software updates while driving to keep making the truck better over time.

The all-new Super Duty takes connectivity to the max with Ford Pro, the dedicated business focused on maximizing uptime, accelerating productivity, and lowering costs for commercial customers with a suite of connected vehicles, software, services, and financing.

Super Duty small to large business owners will benefit from software tools such as Ford Pro Telematics, which identify maintenance needs, vehicle locations, driver behaviours, wasted idle time and more. Super Duty customers also receive access to Ford’s Commercial Vehicle Centres, network of upfitters, and expanding fleet of Mobile Service Vans in Canada, as well as Ford Pro FinSimple, which makes vehicle leasing and purchasing easy and efficient.

All-new tough and modern design inside and out

An all-new exterior includes seven new grilles engineered to maximize cooling performance while under heavy loads. Signature “C-clamp” lighting creates a wide, planted look up front while LED headlamps are now available on all trim levels. Long side vents are functional, reducing under-hood air pressure for improved aerodynamics.

Customers looking to make a statement have new STX, Sport, and Black** Appearance Packages that offer trim, wheel, and paint combinations for a bit more style. The new XL Off-Road Package available on F-250 or F-350 models with 4×4 single rear wheels adds rugged 33-inch tires, a raised air dam, water-fording axle vent tubes, skid plates and an electronic locking rear differential.

The Tremor Off-Road Package includes a front-end lift and uniquely tuned suspension, a Dana front axle with limited-slip differential and axle vent tubes, 35-inch Goodyear tires, unique 18-inch wheels, Trail Control, selectable drive modes including a rock-crawl mode and new for this year, Trail Turn Assist.

The in-cabin experience is further enhanced with:

  • 8-inch centre display comes standard on the XL model; and a 12-inch display standard with higher trim levels
  • Available customizable 12-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Four USB power ports and available wireless charging pad
  • Centre console slot that holds a tablet upright to make using it easier when parked
  • Available Max Recline Seats that fold almost horizontal and lift the seat bottom up for a nearly flat surface to maximize comfort during downtime
  • Available 640-watt, eight-speaker B&O Sound SystemTM or 1,080-watt, 18-speaker B&O Unleashed Sound System by Bang & OlufsenTM for a fully-immersive audio experience
  • Alexa Built-in hands-free experience with complimentary connectivity to Alexa for up to three years§§§

The 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty is proudly assembled at Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky, and Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio. The all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty goes on sale in early 2023 with some features and trim series available in spring 2023.

NEW MAVERICK TREMOR OFF-ROAD PACKAGE REVEALED

By jfawler | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 4th, 2022 at 5:26 PM
  • New Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package becomes available as retail order banks re-open for Ford’s highest-demand vehicles, including Bronco Sport, Explorer, Edge, F-150 and Transit
  • The new Tremor package is available on XLT and Lariat series trucks and includes a 1-inch lift for greater ground clearance, exclusive Trail Control, unique off-road-tailored front and rear suspension, advanced all-wheel drive with four-wheel-drive lock and 2.0-litre EcoBoost® engine
  • Distinctive Tremor design cues include blacked-out Ford logos, headlamps and taillamps, signature Tremor Orange tow hooks, updated fender vent and new grille; the available Tremor Appearance Package offers an even bolder look

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 1, 2022 – Following the success of the 2022 Maverick, Ford is expanding the compact truck lineup with the new 2023 Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package, one of Ford’s hottest products becoming available as the company again begins taking new customer orders for its lineup of high-demand vehicles.

Ford announced its retail order banks will be re-opening for Bronco Sport, Edge and Explorer in Canada this month, while Maverick and Maverick Tremor will be available for retail order in September. Retail orders for Ford’s hot-selling F-150 and Transit opened in July. While customers have been able to buy most of these products off dealer lots, the order banks reopening provides the opportunity for enthusiasts to build their vehicles with the specific content – wheels, colours, feature and technology – they desire.

Built to tackle tough terrain

A new Ford Maverick Tremor is an entry-level option for buyers seeking greater off-road capability and bold styling in the same compact package that comfortably fits their daily life in the city while also supporting their outdoor passions.

“Ranger, F-150 and Super Duty customers have embraced the unique off-road capability, technology and appearance updates found across our Tremor family of trucks,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck product marketing and brand manager. “Maverick Tremor delivers on this same promise with new functions and features designed for off-roading – all while keeping the truck’s signature size, affordability, and Built Ford Tough durability and capability.”

Ford Maverick Tremor is available for XLT and Lariat series trucks. It is outfitted with functional and capable features while keeping in line with the signature eye-catching style of the Tremor family of Ford trucks.

Equipped with a 2.0-litre EcoBoost® engine, the compact pickup builds on the FX4 Off-Road Package with an all-wheel-drive system new to Maverick. This advanced system includes a twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature to allow greater off-road capability. It can divert virtually all rear axle torque to either wheel. Five selectable drive modes make it easy for customers to quickly tailor the on-road and off-road capability of Maverick Tremor to pavement, mud, sand or snow, as well as for towing conditions.

Ford Maverick Tremor also comes with exclusive Trail Control, which operates like cruise control for off-road driving. Customers simply select a set speed, then the truck manages throttle and braking to allow them to focus on steering through challenging conditions like mud or dirt.

Unique front and rear springs and shocks aid in improved off-road capability. These new shocks, together with a 1-inch increase in ride height, also contribute to a more assertive stance for the new Maverick Tremor. Off-road capability is further bolstered by a heavy-duty transmission cooler and upgraded half-shafts.

Maverick Tremor does not sacrifice its Built Ford Tough credential for great capability. The compact truck offers a maximum tow rating of 2,000 pounds and a payload rating of 1,200 pounds so customers can hook up a trailer of dirt bikes or load up the bed with camping gear and fishing rods.

Designed to stand out

The rugged Tremor theme can be found throughout. Maverick Tremor comes with a unique grille finish, plus blacked-out Ford logos, headlamps and taillamps. The two front tow hooks get signature Tremor Orange accents. For an even bolder look, customers can select the available Tremor Appearance Package, which includes a Carbonized Gray-painted roof and mirror caps, as well as black side graphics on the hood and lower body.

Unique 17-inch aluminum wheels feature a new Tremor Orange and dark gray anodized finish, while standard all-terrain tires make for improved traction on loose surfaces like sand, gravel and dirt. A new lower front fascia with a more aggressive approach angle and steel skid plates results in improved capability.

The bold design carries into the cabin, with Black Onyx seats featuring stitched Tremor logos and signature Tremor Orange accents. The centre console, register vents and door pulls are updated to include the new colour scheme as well.

The 2023 Ford Maverick Tremor Off-Road Package costs C$3,400 MSRP and the Tremor Appearance Package costs C$2,000 MSRP. Both packages are available for ordering in September.

Production for the Ford Maverick begins this fall.

Save money on gas: 15 simple things you can start doing today

Article by CAA Quebec

Fuel is expensive! You may be spending thousands of dollars a year on gas. And unfortunately, there’s no relief in sight. Not to worry though: There are a few simple tricks you can do to save a little (or a lot!). Follow them consistently and you could seriously save hundreds of dollars a year.

Become an eco driver

Comment économiser sur l’essence

  1. Accelerate gently. Revving your engine wastes a lot of gas. The ideal rate of acceleration is 20 km/h every 5 seconds.
  2. Slow down. Driving at 100 km/h instead of 120 km/h consumes 20% less fuel.
  3. Drive at a steady speed. Acceleration burns a lot of fuel, even at higher speeds. For instance, fluctuating between 75 km/h and 85 km/h every 18 seconds can lead to a 20% increase in fuel consumption. We recommend using cruise control on the highway.
  4. Go easy on the pedals. Abrupt starts and hard braking reduce travel time by only 4% but increase fuel consumption by 39% (source: Natural Resources Canada).
  5. Keep your distance. Leave enough distance between you and the vehicle in front of you so you don’t have to react suddenly. This also helps you avoid braking and accelerating for no reason.

FAQ on Credit challenges when purchasing a vehicle

By jfawler | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, April 22nd, 2022 at 7:41 PM

Worried about credit? Don’t be!

Matt answers some frequently asked questions about credit challenges and purchasing a vehicle. You can read or watch Matt answer the questions.

1) What is the best approach to take if I have credit challenges and I’m looking to purchase a vehicle?

It is always best to be upfront about one’s credit. At this time, I can have you sit down with my financial services manager and they can submit a pre-approval to let you know where you stand. By submitting a pre-approval to the bank we will find out which interest rate you will qualify for, how much a month the bank will advance you for a car loan, as well as how long you will be able to finance a vehicle. With this information, we can choose a vehicle that fits your needs, the approval, and your budget.

2) Can I trade my vehicle if I have a high-interest auto loan?

You can definitely trade in your vehicle when you have a high-interest auto loan. The good news is that you will likely qualify for a lower interest rate as long as you have had good payment history on your current auto loan. We will take your vehicle on trade and pay off your current loan getting you into the newer vehicle you want.

3) Can I get an auto loan when I have filed bankruptcy and entered into a consumer proposal?

A lot of people believe that they are not able to get into a loan after filing bankruptcy or when they are in a consumer proposal. We are still able to help you. Sometimes the bank will require some information from your trustee in order to proceed. Entering into an auto loan will help rebuild your credit while satisfying your needs for a newer vehicle.

4) What if I have no credit, can I still get a loan?

We can get you approved if you have no credit. Now you might need someone that can co-sign for you. This will allow you to get a lower interest rate while allowing you to build your credit at the same time.

EQUIPPED FOR EXTREME ADVENTURES, FORD EXPEDITION TIMBERLINE OFF-GRID CONCEPT ELEVATES SUV’S ADVENTURE-READY CAPABILITY

By jfawler | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 at 5:52 PM

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 8, 2021 – Built for more extreme adventures, Ford today debuts the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept vehicle in conjunction with the Overland Expo East in Arrington, Virginia. The one-off model is based on the new 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline series, the most off-road-capable Expedition ever.

The Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept is upfitted with proven names in off-road hardware and off-road accessories to help adventurers confidently trek to hard-to-reach mountainside trailheads, remote lakes and distant desert dunes.

“The Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept provides a futuristic view of how family adventurers can potentially get even more out of an Expedition Timberline, including the absolute best mobile basecamp,” said Robert Varto, program manager of the concept.

Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept

Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept is focused on multi-day off-roading functionality and ease-of-use. Most noticeable is the SUV’s raised stance, custom DeeZee Rock Rail Hoop Steps and unmistakable CG Detroit custom topographic wrap over factory Forged Green exterior paint.

The 2022 Ford Expedition has the best available ground clearance in its class at 10.6 inches, and the concept adds another two inches with custom FOX® Performance Elite Series 2.5-inch shocks with Dual Speed Compression adjusters and remote reservoirs front and rear. In addition, 17-inch Method Race Wheels® with Bead Grip® technology are wrapped with 35-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires.

To ensure the best mobile campsite, the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept leverages Ford’s Outfitter collection with dealer-available accessories. These include a Thule Tepui Explorer tent with crossbars that attach to its roof rails, a factory-available transmission shield, Overland Vehicle Systems’ Nomadic 180-degree awning that easily pulls out to help protect adventurers from the elements, and a Wild Land portable privacy room shower.

Illuminating the trail and the campsite at night, a 50-inch Rigid® light bar is mounted above the windshield with an additional Rigid 20-inch light bar below the grille, while D-SS Rigid side shooter cube lights are installed atop the hood. Rigid spotlights mounted within the wheel wells and liftgate further illuminate those areas. The flip of a switch turns the lights red for stargazers.

The interior of the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept reveals an EZ STAK® custom aluminum dual storage drawer unit that sits under a custom Luno® camping mattress with room for two. To make sleeping in the concept vehicle even more comfortable, Luno also provides a concept-specific Base Extender, window shades and portable USB fan. And to ensure this concept vehicle can handle electric loads needed at off-the-grid campsites, a Clarios AGM battery specifically designed for vehicles supporting the most demanding applications.

With a Turtleback Expedition Series Trailer, the largest trailer in the Turtleback lineup, the capability of the Expedition Timberline concept vehicle is further extended in the wilderness. The trailer matches the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept with Method brand wheels and Grabber all-terrain tires. It’s designed to hold additional gear for an extended cross-country trip, including a two-burner propane stove and deep-well sink, a pair of drop-down tables, 42-gallon water tank and six-gallon water heater with external shower hookup, plus pancake propane tank. Additional available options include a refrigerator and a 100-watt solar panel.

Frequently asked questions on Ordering a Vehicle

By Product Expert | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, September 21st, 2021 at 5:39 PM

Our salesperson Don Harris answers your FAQs on ordering a vehicle. You can watch him below or read the transcript!

How do you start the order process?

Now that you’re ready to order your vehicle, we will go over the different options that are available. Talk about the different trim levels, features you want and I may ask you a couple of questions to make sure that we don’t miss any options that are important to you.

Are there any extra fees associated with ordering?

When we submit your ordered vehicle it gets locked it into what is called “price protection” by Ford. So everything we talk about as far as the programs going on at the time of order, the different deals, will be protected no matter when your vehicle comes in.

The vehicle price whether you are buying a stock one or buying one from an order, will
work out the same for that program.

What if the vehicle gets here and it’s not what I thought it would be or I don’t like it?

When you put in an order we always want to go over and make sure we are covering all the bases. We will confirm the features, the colour and make sure it’s going to do what you want too. Make sure it fits the right number of passengers, the proper towing capability if needed, there are a lot of things we try to go over.

Now I can’t say it has never happened where a vehicle comes in and it wasn’t exactly what they expected. In that case, we always have a conversion. We are not in the business to try to make someone take a car that is not going to work for them. There is usually a solution to that situation and it’s just a matter of figuring it out and going from there.

How long will it take for my order to come in?

Typically orders use to take 6-8 weeks and we could pretty much bank on that.
For your order now depending on which trim, which options, what year we are looking at,
there have been some delays.

So it is important for us to let you know there has to be some fluidness to the timeline. Our best guess right now is typically 3 months from order to when it arrives here. It’s not something we can promise right now because unfortunately there can be delays whether it be through shipping waits, the chip shortage and even parts shortages. There are a few things that can change the wait length.

If you have more questions about ordering or any concerns please contact your salesperson or us at 519-776-6447

Star White Metallic Tri-Coat paint includes unique Star White mirror caps and wheel lip moldings to ice-out the exterior. Front and center on the grille is an Oxford White pony badge, which also appears between the tri-bar taillamps. The package adds unique 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with Oxford White-painted pockets.

Light Space Gray sets the cabin stage, appearing on the seats, center console and door-panel armrests. A Bright Silver hex-patterned instrument panel plus an Oxford White pony badge on the steering wheel add chill to the interior environment.

Orders for the 2022 Mustang Mach-E Ice White Edition open in the fall. The vehicle will be in showrooms early next year.

Ice White Edition Mustang Coupe

Reminiscent of the 1993 Triple White Fox body feature Mustang, the 2022 Mustang coupe Ice White Edition gives customers the option to add even more head-turning style to the world’s best-selling sports car1. Ford made just 1,500 Triple White Fox body feature Mustangs – all convertibles.

Available on Mustang EcoBoost® and GT Premium fastback models, the Mustang Ice White Edition comes lacquered exclusively in Oxford White and features unique iced-out taillamps, plus heritage-inspired 19×9-inch wheels in matching Oxford White with machine-surfaced pockets. Just like on the Ice White Edition Mustang Mach-E, the Ice White Mustang coupe comes with Oxford White pony badges and fender badging.

The black and white interior features Oxford White leather seat inserts front and rear, plus Oxford White leather door panels. An aluminum appliqué on the dash and white accent stitching on the center console, door panels, shifter boot, headrests and more add to the cool cabin environment.

Ice White Edition Appearance Package-equipped Mustang EcoBoost and Mustang GT Premium coupes arrive at dealers in early 2022.

What we love about the new Ford Maverick!

The Ford line-up already had a lot to offer but there was a segment missing… enter, the 2022 Ford Maverick. The compact pickup truck is here for those of us that need truck functionality but great fuel economy and a city fit. Here are the things we loved about Ford’s newest model.

We are big fans of the Price and you should be too! 👀

The Ford Maverick is a small truck with a small price. Starting at $25,900 for an XL it has an appealing price for many buyers. You’d think at that price you would be missing some great standard features but you aren’t. The Maverick comes standard with an 8” infotainment center with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a 2.5L Hybrid engine, and FordPass Connect (remote start on your phone). Even if you wanted the highest trim level to pack all the features you can, the Lariat starts at $34,540.

Truck functionality and great fuel economy? Sign me up. ⛽

Canada’s first standard Hybrid pick-up truck is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for seamless shifting. The 2.5L Hybrid engine has a targeted estimated 5.9 L/100 km city fuel consumption. That’s the kind of fuel economy we need in our lives.

It’s still a Ford truck. 💪

Don’t be mistaken this truck is still Built Ford Tough. The Maverick offers an exceptional, 1,500-lb. standard max payload capacity. Towing for the weekend has never been easier with a 2,000-lb. base towing capacity and an available 4,000-lb. max towing capacity.

The truck has a practical 4.5-ft. bed with Multi-Position Tailgate and available smart storage solutions to support all your big projects.

Plus, the Maverick lineup offers three capable, efficient and versatile trims so you can be sure to find the features that fit your lifestyle.

Great things come in small packages! 📦

The Maverick gives you the best of both worlds: compact on the outside, but still big enough on the inside to seat five and store all your stuff. Standard full hybrid and impressive manoeuvrability make getting around the city just as easy as escaping from it.
