When you need a dependable, heavy-duty truck for your business, turn to Ford. The right Ford for your business depends on the industry, so here are three models and their best features to help you make a decision:
The Ford Transit is a big van used for big jobs. Its design is suited for big responsibility, volume and work, making it the perfect vehicle for moving your business and your customers throughout the city and beyond. There are three roof heights, three body lengths and two wheelbases, and the transit has three choices in engines:
- 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6
- 3.2-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel
- 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6
Upfit options allow for optimal vehicle look and function. These options include:
- Rack systems
- Secure shelving
- Storage cabinets
Available technology includes SYNC 3 Connectivity, a standard rear-view camera and lane-keeping alerts. In the inner city, for the right Ford for your business, you can’t go wrong with the Transit.
This is Canada’s best-selling line of pickup trucks, almost 50 years running and counting. Ford’s light and heavy-duty trucks (including the F-250 and 350 models) routinely take their places as some of the best workhorses in Canada.
Like a superhero rebooted for a 2017 revival, the Ford F-150 shed its old shell last year and replaced it with a stylish new body of space-aged materials. In this case, Ford engineers have replaced much of the steel that formerly made up the body of the F-150 with NASA-quality aluminum. This lightweight steel–which has dropped 700 pounds from the frame of this truck–is sturdier than steel and performs better under stress and collisions. It also protects better against dings, dents, and anything else you can throw at it. Add to this mixture a new 2.7L EcoBoost engine or a twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and we’ve got quite the work partner here with the new Ford F-150.
OIL INDUSTRY TRUCKS
Depending on your business, the 2017 Ford Super Duty (F-250 and 350 models) may be a good fit. These trucks’ features include:
- Unique high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body
- Best-in-class towing and payload ratings
- Best-in-class torque
- Class-exclusives such as Reverse Guidance
Upfitting options include dump, utility, aerial and stake bed, all of which are must-haves for the oil field business. Exterior features that enhance productivity include side mirror spotlights, LEDs illuminate the work site, and the Smart Bed has a remote tailgate release. A key fob locks and unlocks the tailgate and lowers it slowly, and a step-and-lift assist bar stores entirely in the tailgate. For the biggest jobs both in and our of city limits, the Super Duty is, hands-down, the best Ford for your business.
