Rugged Winter Weather Requires Tough Trucks, like the F-150
Soon, the roads will be full of snow and ice and driving around will be more of a struggle. Vehicles drive for 12 months of the year, but winter conditions in Canada are adverse.
Having a truck like a Ford F-150 will be of great assistance to you during the winter. Here are just some of the reasons why you should buy or finance a Ford F-150 when the seasons begin to turn.
Nothing is worse than being out driving on a freezing cold day, stuck on a piece of ice. The 2019 Ford F-150 has its most advanced powertrain lineup ever, and also its best-in-class torque. When you need the heft and muscle to move around in slippery conditions, you’ll have the power you need.
This is handy for simply commuting around the city, but trucks this tough are designed to get the job done in any weather. The 2019 Ford F-150 can handle a payload of up to 3,270 pounds, and can tow up to 13,200 pounds.
Drive with confidence, or if you’re in the industry you can put a snow plough attachment on your truck and push around the elements causing everyone else to stay home. Winters in Canada are tough, but not tougher than the F-150.
When a truck combines toughness with intelligence, the results are special. The Ford F-150 is filled with advanced modern technology that will help you drive safer and with more confidence in any weather.
The Blind Spot Information System covers both the truck and the trailer, so you and everyone on the road will be safer no matter how much you’re transporting. Convenient features like the Pro Trailer Backup Assist help in this regard too, as reversing with a trailer can be tricky in any weather, let alone winter.
An available 360-degree camera comes with split-view display using four cameras surrounding the truck. By stitching together all the screens, it puts together a composite view that lets you see all sides of the truck at the same time. No matter the weather conditions, or whether you’re in a tight space or a trail, you’ll drive with confidence.
Beyond cameras, the F-150 has built in safety features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking which warns the driver if a car or pedestrian is in danger of being hit. The system emits a warning sound and there’s a flash on the windshield.
More importantly, the brakes are readied to be applied. If you don’t take corrective action to brake, they can be applied automatically. This is just what you need in Canadian winters, when roads are slippery and it gets dark out sooner.
People need to drive 12 months a year; there’s no option to sit out for a few months. Make sure that the truck you drive has the toughness built in and the smarts to handle the conditions you put it through. With advanced technology and powerful guts, the Ford F-150 has what it takes to get you through the Canadian winter.
