2020 ford mustang for sale penticton bcHear that? It’s the slap of wheels against the pavement, a roar of engines, a huff of exhaust. The Skaha Ford team is revving up our cars and heading toward Oliver, BC - and we can’t wait to meet you there.

Our Track Day Event is starting!

All of the activities have been planned; each of the details has been finalized; and it’s now time to reap the rewards, with our team ready to conquer the Area 27 circuit. We’ve been practicing our rally manoeuvres throughout the last few weeks, and we’re gearing up for high-speed excitement. 

We’re also thrilled to spend time with our customers. To those who have reserved places on our Track Day roster: we thank you. It will be a pleasure to join you on the circuit (as well as to share a meal with you at the Area 27 facility). This will be the start of an annual tradition, and we're delighted that you'll be participating. 

To request additional information about this promotion - including future events, early scheduling opportunities, and more - contact our team. We will gladly respond to any enquiries... after we return from the track.

Set for an early 2021 North American debut, the all-new Bronco is ready to return in classic two-door form for the first time since 1996. The best part? It’s just as powerful and trail-ready as you remember… and then some.

Get ready to see your time on- and off-roading skyrocket come early next year. The two-door 2021 Bronco is just that enticing, with a standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that will deliver a planned 270 horses and best-in-class four-cylinder torque of 310 lb.-ft. Plus, if you’re feeling frisky, you can opt for the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 that creates a killer 310 HP and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

 

The two-door Bronco is set to lead the pack. The front tow hooks, available modular steel bumpers with Ford Performance accessory winch mount, and 11.6-inch ground clearance are standout features—and the latter is best-in-class. Even better, the water fording capability of 33+ inches is also class-leading.

Give us a call this week to discuss all the options the 2021 Bronco will offer enthusiasts come next year!

Penticton, the 2021 Ford Bronco Four-Door Is a Top Performer

If you missed the all-new 2021 Bronco reveal, you missed one heck of a show. But don’t worry—we’re here to bring you up to date. Today, we’re going to hit the highlights of the formidable and fantastic new four-door variant from Ford.

The 2021 Bronco four-door is an ode to performance from the Big Blue Oval brand. Its 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine profoundly impresses with 270 horses and 310 lb.-ft of torque—that’s upper-tier stuff from a four-cylinder. However, there’s also a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 that goes above and beyond with 310 HP and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

 

That’s not all. This Ford takes everything up a notch with a rear solid axle design boasting coil springs outfitted with five locating links, boosting trail control. Also standard is an independent front suspension; as a bonus, position-sensitive Bilstein® dampers can be added for increased durability.

Ready to get more out of your motoring experience, Penticton? Ford’s stepping in to make your dream a reality with the all-new 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands edition, available later this year. 

The 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands is set to blow you away with a powerful 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that creates 245 horses and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. While all new Bronco Sport trims are highly capable, this compares extremely favorably to the Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks models, which serve up 181 HP and 190 lb.-ft. of torque.

 

The new Bronco Sport will have performance across the board, even beyond its engine. The SUV boasts 46-millimeter-diameter monotube rear shocks, specially tuned front struts with hydraulic rebound stops, and an independent front and rear suspension to make mincemeat of even the most formidable terrain.

Ready to go off the beaten path with your new F-150 and/or Bronco? Telenav is here to make that easier than ever.

Thanks to SYNC 4’s connected vehicle system and Telenav’s technology, all-new F-150 and Bronco two- and four-door variants will receive an available hybrid navigation solution that stores maps for uninterrupted routing even when you leave areas with cell coverage, differing from conventional smartphone mapping apps. As a result, off-road trail maps can be followed continuously, custom routes ensure towing confidence, and location results are retrieved more quickly. Further, new trail and towing maps across North America will be added over time.

 

"The Bronco is an iconic vehicle, with an unusual history of twists and turns, ascents and descents,” said Ford Chief Communications Officer, Mark Truby. “It demands a fresh storytelling approach to shed light on what makes it special and so compelling to its huge fan base, as well as for new fans who will discover the rich history along with the new Broncos.”

Can’t get enough of the upcoming 2021 Bronco? You’re certainly not alone, and Ford knows it—which is why they’re debuting “Bring Back Bronco: The Untold Story” on August 10.

“Bring Back Bronco” is an eight-part podcast series that takes a look at how Ford’s celebrated SUV came to be. Hosted by former National Public Radio transportation and economics correspondent, Sonari Glinton, the series will cover the original debut of the Bronco through its cancellation in 1996—and the efforts of Ford’s “Bronco Underground” employees who covertly worked to bring the automobile back to life.
