Should you need a dependable, heavy-duty vehicle for your business, turn to Ford. The right Ford for your business depends on your industry, but you can be sure there’s a Ford for you regardless. Let’s take a closer look at three Ford models and their standout features to help you make a decision. Here’s how to choose the right Ford for your business.
The Ford Transit
The Ford Transit is a big van used for big business. Its design is suited for transportation and volume, making for 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 gets an equal number of choices in engines:
• 3.7-litre Ti-VCT V6
• 3.2-litre Power Stroke Turbo Diesel
• 3.5-litre Turbocharged EcoBoost V6
There are tech options available to you too, like SYNC 3 Connectivity, a standard rear-view camera, and lane-keeping alerts. Upfit options allow for optimal vehicle functionality and aesthetics. These options include:
• Rack systems
• Secure shelving
• Storage cabinets
In the inner city, when asking yourself how to choose the right Ford for your business, you can’t go wrong with the Transit.
The Ford F-150
Canada’s best-selling line of pickup trucks, now 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 most reliable workhorses in Canada.
Like a superhero rebooted for a 2017 revival, the Ford F-150 shed its old shell last year and donned a new stylish body of space-aged materials. Yes, 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 is sturdier than normal steel and performs better under stress and collisions, and it means the F-150 gets to drop 700 pounds from its frame. It also protects better against dings, dents, and whatever else you can throw at it. Add to this build a new 2.7L EcoBoost engine or the twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and you’ve got quite the work partner here with the new Ford F-150.
Oil Industry or Heavy Workload Trucks
Depending on your business, the 2017 Ford Super Duty (F-250 and 350 models) may be best for you. These trucks’ features include:
• Unique high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy build
• Best-in-class towing, torque and payload
• Class-exclusives like Reverse Guidance
There are many upfitting options too, including dump, utility, aerial and stake bed, many of which are must-haves for the oil-field business. Exterior features that enhance productivity include side-mirror spotlights, LEDs to illuminate the work site, and the Smart Bed with the remote tailgate release. A key fob locks and unlocks the tailgate and lowers it conveniently, and a step-and-lift assist bar stores itself in the tailgate. For the biggest jobs both in and our of city limits, the Super Duty is, hands-down, the best Ford for heavy-duty business.
