Make the Most Out of the Warm SK Months

As Canadians living in the prairies, we make the most of the summer season. Kick your warm-weather excursions up a notch with the help of Ford F-150 -- North America’s number one pickup. Curious as to why this truck always takes the cake compared to the competition? Whether its hauling farm equipment or a trailer full of dirt bikes, F-150 doesn’t disappoint! Find out why we at PineRidge Ford think this truck is the ultimate summer vehicle.

F-150 -- A Camping Machine

As soon as the temperature rises, many Meadow Lake families take to the woods, trading cubicles for lakeside fire pits in a heartbeat. Though you might think only a minivan can stand up to the task of lugging around your kiddos, one outing inside of any crew cab model will have you seeing things clearly. 

For starters, the cabin is massive, easily fitting multiple children, coolers, sleeping bag and even your dog comfortably inside. Any of the stuff that doesn’t fit inside the cab can easily be stored back in the bed -- especially if you have a cover for rain protection! Plus, with up to 5897 kg of towing capacity, you’ll be able to bring along the family trailer -- or your favourite fishing boat if you can convince the kids to sleep in a tent!

When taking your F-150 down to Chitek Lake Recreation Site, Stabler Point Campground or anywhere else in the wild wilderness around Meadow Lake, you’ll never have to worry about dirt roads getting too bumpy or small river washouts ruining your traction. This pickup packs up to 450 hp and an astounding 510 lb/ft of torque if you opt for the  3.5L DOHC, 24-Valve High Output Ecoboost engine. 

Safe and Powerful

F-150 blows the competition out of the water when it comes to power, torque and even mileage, but there’s another category where this truck is making big waves. When it comes to safety, Ford has pumped this pickup full of smart features that make travelling with precious cargo an easier task. 

Never worry about blind spots again with the help of a 360-degree camera that gives drivers a view of everything around the vehicle. Once you’re out on the road, handy features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go technology and Pre Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking take the stress out of road trips. Plus, with Sync 3 (Ford’s advanced infotainment system) you’ll never get lost again thanks to Waze, a NAV app that makes getting to your destination so much simpler.
