If you’re in the market for a tough pickup truck that can handle Vancouver Island winters, then the team at Van Isle Ford can’t say enough about the 2019 Ford F-150. This updated classic pickup truck is available in seven trim levels, 14 exterior colours, 4×4 or 4×2, and is made with strong military-grade aluminum-alloys. As a leading Ford dealer in Port Alberni, BC we think it’s a perfect time to take a closer look at the light-duty truck.

Tons of Performance

Unlike other pickup trucks in the sector, the 2019 Ford F-150 shines when it comes to performance variety. The Ford F-150 offers an impressive six-engine lineup that has something for everyone. There are three EcoBoost engines including the 2.7-litre turbocharged engine that puts out 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, 3.5-litre EcoBoost that delivers a best-in-class 470 lb.-ft. of torque, and the twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve 3.5-litre EcoBoost that kicks out a best-in-class 450 horsepower. If you are a fan of diesel engines there is the 3.0-litre Power Stroke turbo V6 that offers a slew of best-in-class diesel rates such as 5,170kgs towing, 250 horsepower at 3,250 rpm, 440 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,750 rpm, and class-leading fuel efficiency. No matter which engine you choose, you’ll have full control thanks to the available 10-speed automatic transmission that offers optimized wide-span gear spacing, three overdrive gears, and five selectable drive modes — Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport. For the best ride, no matter the road conditions, the 2019 Ford F-150 can be equipped with a two-speed automatic four-wheel drive system with Neutral Towing Capability, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, and Electronic Locking Rear Differential.

Safety for All

The 2019 Ford F-150 isn’t just a big tough truck; it’s also exceptionally safe for drivers and passengers. Some of the more impressive and cutting-edge protection features that can be found on the Ford F-150 include:

  • Automatic High Beams
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Front, driver, and passenger seat-mounted side airbags
  • Safety Canopy Side Curtains
  • Rear view camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • SecuriLock passive anti-theft system
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

One safety feature that the team at Van Isle Ford is quick to be excited about is the Active Restraint System with three-point manual lap/shoulder belts with height adjusters, pretensioners, and energy management retractors on outside front positions.

Connectivity and Comfort

Pickup trucks used to be all about barebones interiors, but that isn’t the case with the 2019 Ford F-150. To keep you comfortable, the Ford F-150 is available with 10-way power driver and front passenger seats, 60/40 Flip-Up Split Bench with Elongated Cushion, unique special edition seats with red stitching, and a leather-wrapped Sport Style steering wheel with thumb pads and saddle shifters. To keep you connected and entertained, the car-tech experts at Van Isle Ford suggest checking out the available B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, voice-activated navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, and SYNC® 3.
