The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is wasting no time, Penticton. Ahead of its release in B.C. just a bit later this year, the machine has already scored a win in an off-road race.

Driver and navigator tandem, Shelby Hall and Penny Dale, drove the 2021 Bronco Sport to victory at the prestigious Rebelle Rally event this past Saturday. They grabbed first place in the X-Cross class event, which is a week-long journey that requires each participant to trek across 1,200 miles of California and Nevada desert. Only compass-and-map navigation may be used—no new-fangled GPS technology.

 

“Just finishing Rebelle is an impressive feat – we’re proud of all three Bronco Sport teams,” said Mark Grueber, Bronco brand marketing manager. “The results really underscore that Bronco Sport delivers, both for seasoned pros and off-road novices. All of these women embody what Built Wild™ stands for, and the first-place finish by Shelby and Penny helps establish this all-new vehicle as the Bronco of small SUVs.”

The all-new Bronco Sport will bring an available 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine offering segment-best torque and horsepower with it when it arrives later this year.

Those of you in the Kamloops and Penticton areas would be well-served to keep an eye out for the 2021 Ford Edge. It’s now set to feature a more refined interior that includes Ford’s spectacular new SYNC 4A communications system.

Further, available Connected Built-in Navigation and cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition capabilities further power-up this ride. Plus, the available wireless charging pad will juice up your mobile devices in speedy and satisfying fashion.

Are you ready for the future of hands-free driver assist technology? Ford is.

Coming in late 2021 to the all-new Mustang Mach-E and F-150 via over-the-air update, Active Drive Assist will enable limited hands-free driving when motoring on “Hands-Free Zones.” These zones will first exist in North America across a stretch of approx. 100,000 miles of prequalified sections of divided highways.

 

Ford’s new hands-free Active Drive Assist technology is part of its Co-Pilot360™ suite of features and will utilize advanced computing of camera and radar sensing technologies to provide real-time hands-free driving. It will either be standard or an affordable option on Mach-E SUVs and F-150 trucks, and more Hands-Free Zones will become available throughout North America as time passes. 100,000 vehicles with the technology are expected to sell in the first year.

For the uninitiated, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is an all-new arrow in Ford’s quiver. It takes the pony car into entirely new territory, transforming it into an all-electric crossover (yes, you read that right). With such a new concept, you might expect that you need to “pony” up the big bucks for elevated performance, but that’s not true—even the base trim of the Mach-E delivers in a big way.

This 2021 Mustang Mach-E Select trim offers up a 230-mile/370-km range regardless of whether you choose the RWD or AWD variants. When you need to recharge, it’s a cinch—you can juice up with either its 240V or 120V outlet. Plus, the available at-home charging system offers greater range gains per hour.

 

The Mach-E is remarkable for the environment (and for gas savings) but that isn’t its only trick. True to the pony car moniker, it’s quick, too. In fact, you’ll be able to move from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as approx. 5.5 seconds.

Hybrid power. The promise of it has been bandied about for years and, somewhat more recently, it’s borne some serious fruit. But never like this. Never quite like this.
 

It’s still rare to see hybrid power implemented in a machine this large and this capable… and have it implemented so well. But that’s what Ford has managed to do with the upcoming 2021 F-150 Hybrid. It’s an imposing machine with the internals (or “guts,” if you will) to back up its magnificent first impression with substance. Under the hood lies a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine—the first-ever gas-electric powertrain featured in any F-150. It leans on a 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and a 35-kilowatt electric motor for its performance, which is formidable… as in, 12,000-pound-towing-ability formidable. And range? You’re looking at an overall number of 700 miles/1125 km on a full tank (with a limited all-electric range available, too).

All Mustangs are performance machines—that’s an undeniable fact. But some aren’t quite built like the others, and that’s certainly the case with the unbelievable Mach 1. This is a pony car that’s set to upend and exceed even your most optimistic expectations with its insane performance.
 

That’s right. After 17 years, the Mustang Mach 1 is coming back to Canadian dealerships—and it’s bringing a wild amount of power with it. Unlike the upcoming all-electric Mach-E, this is a pure gasoline machine that places a premium on whiplash speeds. Its 5.0-liter V8 engine produces 480 HP at 7,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,600 rpm. Plus, a six-speed manual with rev-matching comes standard—enthusiasts, rejoice!

The all-new 2021 F-150 is all about value. This truck is stuffed to the gills with cutting-edge technology as well as utility-based features that are thoughtful, productive additions to an already sensational truck. 

When you buy the 2021 F-150, you’re making an investment in your future happiness and enjoyment of the open road—it’s not your average purchase. A powerful reason for that is the inclusion of satisfyingly intelligent software like SYNC 4, which replaces the outgoing SYNC 3 system. You’ll now enjoy voice recognition via cloud-based connectivity with the massive bonus of OTA (over-the-air) updates that will keep your vehicle learning and improving as time moves on. There’s even a digital owner’s manual with streamable how-to videos so you can keep pace with all the features of your truck!

 

The 2021 F-150 has some more tricks up its sleeve, too. Available zone lighting offers exterior illumination on dark evenings, enhancing safety. And once within the cabin, the max recline seats make it easy to catch a snooze before hitting the road again after a long day.

Figuratively and literally, the all-new 2021 Mustang Mach-E is electrifying. It’s set to take Penticton, Kelowna, and all of B.C. by storm when it releases as a wildly unique and capable electric-powered crossover reimagining of the venerable pony car. 

Here’s the scoop: The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is a performance beast even in its standard configuration. It produces an invigorating 266 HP/198 kw with 428 lb-ft and 317 lb-ft of torque for the AWD and RWD versions, respectively. Range remains highly respectful despite all that power output, with average performance at 370 km for the standard model.

 

That’s not all the Mach-E has to offer, though—if you step up in trims, you’re getting even more bang for your buck. The extended-range version of the crossover pony offers a sensational 475 km range on just a single charge. In fact, a 10 to 80% charge can be had in only 45 minutes thanks to DC Fast Charge Stations. Plus, speedy 0 to 60 MPH times can be enjoyed in the mid six-second range.
