In Trail, natural beauty surrounds us. From the Monashee Mountains to our west and the Columbia River flowing through Trail’s borders, there are a lot of outdoor activities to enjoy. Two of the most popular are hunting and fishing. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can handle your hunting and fishing adventures in British Columbia, then you should consider these options.
When it comes to outdoor adventures, few trucks offer you the off-road readiness of the 2020 Ranger. This midsize truck has a high-strength steel frame and off-road chassis to take on rough terrain. If your hunting trips really take you into the middle of nowhere, you can opt for the Ranger’s FX4 Off-Road Package, which comes with tuned off-road monotube shocks, all-terrain tires, electronic-locking rear differential, a steel front bash plate, and a heavy-duty front skid plate, among other features. In addition to its adventurous capabilities, the Ranger will also easily carry your gear, fitting up to 1,466 litres of cargo volume in its bed and offering a towing rating of 3,402 kg.
If you need a family hauler during the week, but an adventure buddy when the weekend comes, then consider the 2020 Escape. This crossover can seat up to five passengers, which means you can bring your friends with you on your next fishing trip, while still offering an impressive 974 litres of cargo space behind the second-row seats. If it’s just you, fold down those rear seats and load up all of your fishing and hunting gear with the maximum 1,851.9 litres of cargo capacity. And, when you need to tow your boat, simply hitch it to your Escape, which can tow a maximum of 1,587 kg. Plus, if you need to warm up during the cooler months, the Escape also comes available with heated seats – ideal after long hours spent in the blind or out on the lake.
The 2020 Silverado is a solid option if you need to tow your boat to the nearest lake, offering up to 6,078 kg of maximum trailering. Its Durabed truck bed also comes with 12 standard tie-downs, allowing you to tie down any gear you need as you head out. Plus, if you purchase a Silverado, AM Ford can offer you non-Ford financing, finding you the right automotive loan to afford your truck.
