Ford Commercial Vehicle News In Penticton BC
2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaSay goodbye to jerky gear changes in BC with the 2021 Ford F-250. Its 6.2L gasoline V8 engine is paired to a TorqShift-G 6-speed automatic transmission, so every drive is smoother and more controllable thanks to its wider gear span, which complements the powerplant perfectly.

This Super Duty’s transmission also features Progressive Range Selection, which lets you lockout select gears and limits the shifter to a certain range. By doing so, you can achieve a better grip in slippery conditions.

It offers a Tow/Haul mode for cargo hauling to minimize gear hunting while climbing hills, and in descent, it stops you from up-shifting to prevent gaining velocity. That means you can put less pressure on the brakes as well, extending their life and offering you peace of mind. And to achieve total control on BC worksites, set the transmission to Manual mode.

2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaHeading to nighttime jobs in BC might make even the most seasoned driver anxious, but there’s no need to fear in the 2021 Ford Super Duty F-250. It features automatic high-beam headlamps to help out in the darkest of conditions.

These headlamps are optional for the XL trim and standard for the XLT and above. Using a windshield-mounted camera, this system can sense low-light conditions and turn on the high-beams automatically. To activate it, all you must do is set one dial and confirm the option in the Message Centre – that’s it!

To help ensure you don’t blind other drivers when a different vehicle’s headlights are approaching up to 2000 feet away, or its taillamps are within 500 feet, the system will automatically dim. Therefore, you can stay focused on BC’s roads with both hands on the wheel.

2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaDuring jobs in BC, your truck might sometimes spend a while idling. That’s not ideal for diesel engines because soot builds up in the particulate filter, and there’s not enough exhaust heat generated to burn it off. Fortunately, the 2021 Ford F-250 has Operator-Commanded Regeneration with Active Inhibit available to handle it.

This Super Duty will flash a warning light when soot buildup happens, which is your signal to push the activation button. That kicks up the exhaust temperature for a while to burn off the debris, and then it drops down once everything finishes.

Active Inhibit delays this process if you’re parked over combustible materials on a BC worksite (like dry grass or leaves) to prevent flareups. That gives you time to shift to a safe place and push the activation button again – ideal for commercial use cases.

2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaWhether you’re hauling heavy loads or dealing with slick roads, powerful stopping pressure is an asset every driver in BC is sure to appreciate. And the 2021 Ford Super Duty F-250 delivers it using driver-activated engine-exhaust braking.

The available 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel is equipped with this feature, which restricts the engine’s exhaust flow to create backpressure that helps slow the truck down and afford you better control. As a result, braking is assisted no matter if you’re towing a trailer, the type of terrain you’re on, or if you’re travelling downhill.

As a bonus, the redirected engine exhaust also reduces the amount of pressure you must apply to the stopping pedal, which helps preserve the brake pads and lining. Choose from three available settings, On, Off, or Auto, to suit driving conditions across BC.

2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaReversing while a trailer is attached to your truck can be anxiety-inducing. That’s why the 2021 Ford F-250 has the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist available.

It includes 180/360-Degree Cameras (available in the Rear View and Prep Kit) that show you every side of this Super Duty. Meanwhile, the centre high-mounted stop lamp keeps an eye on the bed – which is ideal for attaching trailers to the 5th-wheel or gooseneck hitch.

Trailer Reverse Guidance provides an expanded view using cameras in the side mirrors, with cross-hairs superimposed over the image on the centre touchscreen showing you how everything is lining up and the picture shifting as the wheel moves to provide extra support. For more help, rotate the Pro Backup Assist knob left or right in the desired direction and have it steer for you by itself.

2021 ford f250 for sale bc canadaWobbly caravans are less of a worry as you tow them across BC in the 2021 Ford Super Duty F-250 XLT with AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability Control (RSC) included as standard. This system uses gyroscopic sensors to assess a trailer’s positioning 150 times per second.

If those sensors detect wobbling, your truck will reduce engine power and selectively apply wheel braking to stabilize itself. And, to prevent sliding, yaw control dampens fishtailing by exerting stopping pressure on the rear tires.

RSC works by monitoring the body angle of the F-250. If it senses conditions that could cause a rollover, like sudden accident avoidance manoeuvres or a curve taken too quickly, it’ll apply the brakes to one or more of the wheels individually and flash a warning light on the dash to alert you – safeguarding every haul in BC.
