Get the Exhilarating Details on the All-New 2024 Ford Mustang

The seventh-generation Ford Mustang is officially here and it does an exceptional job of sticking to what it does best. Rather than offering a hybrid powertrain, Ford has improved upon the Mustang’s iconic performance while adding a few surprises, inside and out.

Ford is focusing on ICE

If you want a Mustang-like vehicle that is also efficient, opt for the Mustang Mach-E. But if you prefer to feel the rumblings of an internal combustion engine (ICE) under the hood pumping out an insane amount of power, the 2024 Ford Mustang is the way to go.

Ford announced two powertrains for the new Mustang: a fourth-generation 5.0-litre Coyote V8 and an all-new 2.3-litre EcoBoost® turbo. The V8 engine is said to be the most powerful version ever and will deliver “the most naturally aspirated horsepower of any Mustang GT,” according to Ford’s official release on the 2024 Mustang.

Tech-filled cabin

While the Mustang maintains its athletic exterior design with little to no updates, the interior has been completely revamped for the 2024 model. Inspired by fighter jets, the cabin is centered on you, as evidenced by the 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster and an available 13.2-inch SYNC® 4 display that are both angled toward the driver’s seat.

The advanced tech isn’t reserved solely for infotainment and convenience, though. The 2024 Mustang receives a new Performance Electronic Parking Brake via the Performance Pack to make for a fun drifting experience.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what you can expect on the 2024 Ford Mustang. If you want to know more, all you have to do is contact our knowledgeable team at AM Ford Sales in Trail, British Columbia!

F-150 Lightning Gets More Power, Capability, and Range

The Ford F-150 Lightning is one of the most powerful — and affordable — full-size electric trucks in Canada. Since its debut, Ford has taken this beastly vehicle even further and worked to enhance its range, power, and capability.

“We were seriously focused on raising the bar on this truck, including after we revealed it, so we can deliver more for our customers,” said Dapo Adewusi, F-150 Lightning vehicle engineering manager.

One way the new F-150 Lightning has gotten better is with its horsepower. The extended-range battery pack now delivers 580 horsepower, which is up from the targeted 563. Meanwhile, the standard-range battery pack has also improved to 452 horsepower from 426. Both batteries create an incredible 775 lb-ft of torque, which is the most any F-150 pickup has ever offered.

With all of that added power, it makes sense that the F-150 Lightning’s payload has increased. You can now expect to haul an additional 235 pounds in the truck’s bed, totaling 2,234 pounds of max available payload capacity.

It was previously announced that the F-150 Lightning’s range had improved for its XLT and Lariat trims with the extended-range battery. The range for these models went up by 32 kilometres to a total EPA estimated range of 515 km.[1]

Are you excited about the future of the new F-150 Lightning? Keep in touch with our team at AM Ford Sales in Trail, British Columbia, to receive additional updates on this exciting EV truck and other Ford models.

[1] Excludes Platinum models. Based on full charge. Targeted range based on analytical projection consistent with Government of Canada approved US EPA combined drive cycle. The actual range varies with conditions such as external environment, vehicle use, vehicle maintenance, lithium-ion battery age and state of health.


Meet the Adventurous Ford Bronco Everglades Special Edition

When Ford introduced the reimagined Bronco, it knew everyone would be excited about the vehicle’s capabilities. To extend upon its already adventurous spirit, Ford has debuted the new 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades special edition.

This off-roading beast comes with standard equipment like an integrated 10,000-pound ZEON 10-S WARN® winch, a factory-installed snorkel, and the Sasquatch™ Package — which includes 17-inch Carbonized Grey-painted alloy wheels, 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires, and additional exterior elements.

“Bronco customers like to explore new places, but some want to go even further off the trail than others,” said Jolanta Coffey, Bronco chief engineer. “Everglades is specially equipped to enable these customers to tackle even more challenging terrains and trails – and with the front bumper-mounted winch, they can help others out of trouble while they’re at it.”

While this special edition Bronco has already sold out, you can still experience the exciting capability of the 2022 Ford Bronco and its many trim levels, like Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, and Raptor. Each model offers a variety of customizable features and interior amenities to suit your needs.

If you’re interested in getting behind the wheel of the new Ford Bronco, feel free to contact our team and make a reservation at AM Ford Sales in Trail, BC.

New F-150 Lightning Can Take What Any Season Dishes Out

It’s natural to be skeptical about the capability of an electric truck. There haven’t been many made until recently. But Ford decided to quell any doubts by testing the new F-150 Lightning in the harsh weather of Alaska to truly see how the electric truck performs.

“Alaska provides us the extremely cold temperatures, snow, and ice-covered surfaces that we need to push the F-150 Lightning in this type of testing, which is really focused on dialing in how the truck delivers its power to the ground on slippery surfaces,” said Cameron Dillon, F-150 Lightning powertrain engineer.

“Customers may not regularly see minus 34-degree Celsius mornings like we are seeing here, but they will see winter cold, snow, and icy roads, and they should feel confident their F-150 Lightning is ready for all of it,” Dillon added.

The Ford F-150 Lightning can tackle any season, especially our bitterly cold winters here in Trail, thanks to a handful of useful tools. This includes its standard always-on 4×4 system, front and rear dual motors, quick torque delivery, an electronic-locking rear differential, selectable drive modes, and its low centre of gravity.
