Ford has been a cornerstone for automotives in not only the entire world, but in Canada as well. Ford is the longest-established automaker in Canada and only intends to push things further, as we maintain a top position as an innovative vehicle manufacturer. Ford Canada has a storied history which created a unique company heritage fostering the core ideals we retain today. At Zender Ford, we’re proud to represent the Ford legacy and supply our customers with the very best.
Ford’s have been proudly built in Canada for over 100 years now. The first car built by Ford Canada was the Model C in 1904. Following that landmark event in Canada’s automotive history, 117 total cars were made that year. This vehicle, and other similar models, would eventually fall away in 1908 when the Model T debuted. Starting this year, Ford Canada started producing trucks which would lead into the creation of military vehicles, followed by the creation of the classic Mercury trucks after World War II. The decades that fell in line behind the war years saw postwar looks embodied by the Meteor, Monarch and Edsel vehicles among a plethora of other unique options. For the most part Canadian-produced Fords were the same as American-produced versions, besides some cases where specific engine parts couldn’t be attained in Canada or when local Canadian parts were used over the American variants. Even still, Ford Canada forged its own unique history, building awe-inspiring vehicles for over a century.
Ford is all about working together to create a better world with all of the high quality vehicles we produce. We focus on our top tier vehicles first, which we strive to make better each year to fully satisfy our customer’s needs. This includes engineering new safety technologies, environmentally-friendly options, and connectivity features to match the demands of the changing world. As a forward-leading business, Ford is constantly expanding and growing without sacrificing anything for our customers. Employee benefits are always front of mind in our growth, making sure the people who work for us are treated properly and enjoy contributing to Ford on both a local and global level.
Ford’s Innovative Future
Ford isn’t just content with the world we currently live, we’re always looking to craft an even better future for both our customers and vehicles. Innovation is a core tenant of our Ford beliefs because we believe in always learning new ways of doing and developing smarter technologies to improve our way of life. Ford is always advancing new ideas to push the limits on what is currently accepted. Electric vehicles are a prime focus for Ford going forward as we head towards 2020. Features like Blind Spot Information and Pedestrian Detection were innovative safety introductions that have helped our drivers feel more secure than ever before. Projects such as the Chariot shuttle service and urban mobility research for bicycle transport are just some of the examples of forward-thinking projects Ford has been involved in. Ford won’t spare any corner when looking for new innovative techniques for our vehicles and how they impact the surrounding world.
From the past, present and future, Ford Canada has remained a thoughtful innovator when building vehicles and attending to the needs of our customers. At Zender Ford we believe in the Ford history and current vision to serve us well in growing towards the future, and remaining one of the top choices for Canadians to go for their vehicles.
