Instead, it offers the ultimate in comfort by fusing an expansive interior with premium standard features for a plush in-cabin experience. No longer will commercial fleets have to compromise convenience and ease with power.

After a long day at the job site, there’s nothing better than climbing into the 2021 F-250 Lariat. Every millimetre of this heavy-duty’s cabin has been designed to promote occupant comfort. Taller passengers will love the stretch-out space with 111.5 cm of front-seat legroom and 110.7 cm in the rear, as well as leather-trimmed seating across all rows in Crew Cab models. 10-way power adjustments also allow you to customize your ergonomics, while available heated and ventilated front seats provide four-season comfort. 

To aid convenience, Ford also pairs the 2021 F-250 Lariat with passenger-centric technologies, including a flow-through centre console with storage, a rear-facing 12V powerpoint, and a 110V/400W AC power outlet. Anchoring the dash is a SYNC infotainment system, which boasts an expansive LCD capacitive touchscreen in the centre stack, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

This pickup truck can also provide backup power to your whole home, as well.

The all-electric Lightning can also be equipped with the available Ford Intelligent Backup Power system and an extended-range battery. This combination provides up to three days of electricity (at 30 kWh per day) to a home and a maximum of ten days if you ration your usage—thanks to the fact it can deliver up to 9.6 kW of peak energy.

Plus, the system is automatic, so if the grid goes down in BC, Ford Intelligent Backup Power kicks in by itself. Then once it comes back, the truck will go back to recharging its batteries with no input required from you.

This pickup has available BlueCruise technology on offer that will do all of the thinking for you.

BlueCruise uses multiple technologies to allow the 2022 F-150 Lightning to drive itself. An operator-facing camera ensures that you are always looking out at the road ahead. At the same time, a radar sensor is pointed at traffic and the environment around you. As a result, you can go hands-free on certain sections of qualified divided highways.

These sections of highway are called Hands-Free Blue Zones, and they total up to over 160,000 km of roads across North America. That way, all that is left to do is sit back and relax while your all-electric pickup truck does the driving for you in BC.

Instead, Ford fuses commercial fleets with comprehensive protection in the 2021 F-250 – delivering a host of enhanced driving aids to keep your crews safe on the job site and the road.

One level up from the base 2021 F-250 is the XLT trim, which comes standard with a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert. Whether changing lanes on the highway or maneuvering through construction sites, the driver will be alerted with visual and audible cues to warn them of other vehicles or pedestrians in their blind spot. The same notifications will also alert the driver if an obstacle is behind the F-250 while in reverse.

Stepping up to the Lariat model adds standard rear parking sensors to the 2021 F-250, which makes parking the heavy-duty truck a breeze, especially in cramped quarters. The sensors work in unison with the included backup camera to help the truck slide into tight spaces.

The 2021 Super Duty proves essential for BC commercial fleets that prioritize safety and convenience. To learn more about this model's specs and features, contact our team today.

Commercial fleets in BC choose this heavy-duty truck time and time again for its powerful performance and impressive towing capabilities.

2021 F-250 Super Duty models offer three powertrain choices with standard rear-wheel drive or available four-wheel drive. The base engine is a 6.2L gasoline V8 that produces 385 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque that’s connected to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. However, upgrading to the 7.3L gasoline V8 gets 430 hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque and uses an upgraded 10-speed automatic transmission.

For fleets with high towing needs, the Power Stroke turbodiesel 6.7L V8 is an obvious choice. This engine sends 475 hp and a massive 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque through a 10-speed automatic transmission. Regular cab models with rear-wheel drive can pull 6,894.6 kg (15,200 lbs.) when properly equipped.

The F-250 reigns supreme, providing BC fleets with the horsepower and torque they need to tackle the biggest jobs. To learn more about the 2021 Super Duty, contact our team at Skaha Ford in Pentiction to schedule a test drive.

This all-electric pickup truck offers excellent range and battery performance to keep going no matter what happens.

If you go for the available extended-range battery, you can cross distances up to 480 km, while the standard model gives you up to 370 km. Both of these are built using advanced lithium-ion technology, and the former achieves a top-up from 15% to 100% in around 8 hours when you used the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro.

Both batteries also meet Ford's Built Tough durability standards so that you're assured of lasting performance and reliability. They are tied to two motors in the powertrain, which means all their torque and HP will be almost instantly available for use at job sites around BC.

This set of add-ons makes the truck more striking and attention-grabbing anywhere you go.

It includes 18" black-painted aluminum wheels with identical-coloured centre caps that coordinate seamlessly with the 5" running boards. At the same time, the body-colour front bumper has an inky-dark lower fascia to keep the theme going. Plus, a Tough Bed Spray-in Liner adds aesthetics as well as protection.

There are also black sill plates installed, while XLT models get the same colour for their grille and surround. The Lariat receives a dark grill, a similar surround, and inky mirror caps to top it off.
